The Henry Independent reports the
death of a farmer citizen of- the west
side of the county,.as follows: "C.
j:. ,M Anderson, formerly a pioneer
sfttler in the vicinity of Hazel but of
rt-feu" years making his home at Dal
las, T' as. died Saturday, August 26.
Titr u«.\vs cf his death was received
here Mr. Brando, clerk of the
Workmen lodge of which Mr. Ander
son has been a member for a number
of years, also carrying $2,000 life in
surance. He was a cousin of Mrs.
Watertown people who heard Mr.
James Gray lecture in tlie Methodist
church in this city some years ago
will deeply regret to learn of his
death, which occurred at Washington,
D. C., last week. Mr. Gray was for
merly mayor of Minneapolis. For'
many years past he has been associ
ated with the Minneapolis Journal
and for the past several years he has
represented the paper at Washington.
Death was unexpected, Mr. Gray not
having been sick at all. He was
born in Scotland, came to this coun
try in 1866, and was fifty-four years
of age.
October 2 to Saturday, October 7,
has been selected as pay-up week—
'wtien everybody is supposed to make
an especial effort to pay his obliga
tions about town and elsewhere. It
goes without saying that if everyone
owing The Saturday News, for in
stance, would walk up to the captain's
office and deposit the cash to wipe
out the obligation, The Saturday
News could pay every debt that
stands against it and have enough left
to buy a few pounds of print paper.
If all of The Saturday News readers
will try to pay up during this par
ticular week—October 2-7—there'll be
rejoicing on both sides.
Mrs. E. C. Jacobsen of Pierre was
in the city last week, interviewing
some of the anti-suffrage women of
Watertown. Mrs. Jacobsen has long
been an anti-suffragist. The women
opposed to suffrage, she said to a Sat
urday News representative, are not
organized as the suffragists are, but
a laTge proportion of the women, she
declared, are opposed to the measure
pending. "We don't think," she
continued, 'that equal suffrage will
bring about the. millenium, by any
means, nor do we think women them
selves will be benefited by the adop
tion of the proposed amendment to the
constitution. In fact, my own opinion
is that to accept equal suffrage would
be a backward step, so far as the
women themselves are concerned."
The Castlewood Republican, com
menting on the death of Thomas Mad
den, says: "Word was received here
Sunday announcing the death of Mr.
Thomas Madden at his home in Brook
ings on the morning of that day. The
deceased was one of the early pio
neers of Bfookings county and was a
former resident of thi place, during
.the early eighties. .He built one of
the first buildings in Castlewood the
one occupied as a laundry and de
stroyed recently "by fife. He wa,s a
brother o* Wm. Madden, formerly of
this place, and an uncle of P. H, and
W". S, Madden. One of his daughters
is the wife of Theo, C. Akin. The
deceased was well and favorably
known here arid our "people extend
th«W sincere sympathy to the surviv

It is said that the most experienced
horsemen in the United States are of
the opinion that horses, good horses,
especially good draft animals, will
command good prices for a number of
years. Prior to 1915 the increase in
horse flesh in the country had for
several years fallen below expecta
This, coupled with the heavy drain
on available draft horses caused by
the war demand, has very greatly de
creased the present supply. That,
too, the foreign demand for draft
horses must continue some years af
ter the present conflict has ended
It would seem, therefore, that it will
pay farmers to raise good colts and
all they can as these are the horse in
three or four years. They soon grow
into a work horse for you. Too, it
will pay to well shelter and feed and
otherwise care for these came colts.
.Horses in France, so it is stated,
were decreased about one million the
first year of the war and of course the
use of horses in the dangerous busi
ness of war still continues.

Committeeman Will
Recommend Dual Tax System.
Washington, D. C.—The chairman
of the committee on taxation for the
annual session of the National Grange'
to be held in this city in November,
announces that his committee will
recommend the dual tax system, ad-.,
vocated by R. O. Richards, for their
consideration and endorsement.,
The dual tax differs from the single
tax, advocated by Henry George, irisj
that It standardizes the assessment^
of land, and does away with assessors^
and equalization boards for protracted v£
periods, and provides for a small uni-.-.
form income tax in addition to a tax-j,
on land. It allows all land owners-ji^
to deduct five per cent of the assessed
value of any tract of land from the^,
income of such land before paying an
income tax from that particular tract
of land. It also exempts all kinds of:^
improvements and' personal property^!
from direct taxation. It make the in6|||
come tax a lien on land and business
and applies the registration la WE! as
penalty for.failure to report ,or pa &/|
the income -tax.
