Friends in, Minnehaha county of
Geo. W. Egan the people's candidate
for governor, ridicule the claim made
by some of the Byrne papers that the
votes cast for Geo. W. Egan in Minne
haha county at the June primary elec
tion will fall short of that cast for
him two years ago. Reports have been
received here from every voting pre
cinct in the county and these show
that there has absolutely 'been 110
falling off in the great strength of
Mr. Egan in the county. Two years
ago hla opponents received a mera
handful of. votes in the county, and
his plurality la June of this year will
be as overwhelming as It was two
years ago. Of this there cannot be
the remotest doubt Geo. W. Egan

imonds had been dancing, and at
end swinging into the strains of
comforting hymn which knows in
universal appeal no distinction of
tion. birth, or nitionality. The in
nee of music in inspiring courage
long been known. The drummer

good enough for him, or else he is
placed behind the palms, where he
won't be in the way, for he is to be

march for the wedding of the living

dead. In time of panic he is expected
to remain at his post that tbose en

faithful according to tradition to the

their tired eyes beheld coming out -f

their ears heard the first faint sound

Proclamation for
"Mother's Day"
However busy mankind is or may
become, at some time or other, dur
ing the strident day or peaceful night,
the quiet spirit Reminiscence enters
the soul, and as we thoughtfully peer
through the shadowy vistas of retro
spection into the dim regions of in
nocent childhood or happy youth,
there glides into our mind's eye the
image of the one around whom will
ever cling many of the softest and
sweetest memories of life—our moth
er.
She it was, in the days of our child
hood, whose kind words and gentl-3
acta garnished with grace the home
we then knew. Hers were the smiles
that lighted the way when it seemed
most dark and fearful and from the
heart of mother emanated the love
that-shielded Us from the tumult of
'the World, nurturing, guiding and gov
erning until we went forth alone from
tlva family roof-tree. Mother! At the
single word long slumbering mem
ories of other days awaken and the
heart 1b again like unto thatj of
tittle child. Ambition Is forgotten
'the" mountain tops Of life for which
4neu strive are unknown- ''gold Is but
'the lieht In the eyes o^ a mother and
)pve la all in all.
.'iChls is the history of your mother
and1 of rnlce and in appreciation let
j&y our meed of tribute to the
-.'the delicate confidence,
ttV bei&tiful affection, and gentle ad
monition--with which she has bnparted
,to us the principles ot life. If yorn
mother^ Is 'yet with you, surround her

mother heart, if she has pa-sse to
taal farther bourne, c.vr.sh her mem
ory with sacred sorrow.
In acknowledgment, therefore, of
the world's illimitable debt to Mother
hood. I have issued this Proclamation
setting aside the twelfth day of our
beautiful memorial month of May as
Mother's Day and earnestly request a
wide and appropriate observance of
the same throughout our entire State.
In witness whereof, "I have horeoun
