went up to 500. At Menno the crowd was so
large that the meeting bad to be transferred
from the cars to the hall. The audience at that
point was rather skeptical about the advantages
of seed selection.
In the matter of corn smut, a good deal of
interest has been evinced in the question of its
treatment The expeits held out no hope that
seeds can be treated so as to prevent the smut
ting of corn. However, it was stated that care
ful cutting of smut from the plants as soon as
it appears would cut down the Infection and keep
it out of the corn in some degree Objection
has been made that in the selection of corn seed
and the testing of germination too much time
is taken In fact, it is stated that the farmer
does not have time to do this
An experiment at the Illinois experiment sta
tion tested this point It was ascertained that
corn seed enough for the planting of sixty-seven
acres could be selected and tested for germina
tion In ten hours, and as this increases the yield
about 20 per cent the investment of so little
time is well worth making.

the Great Northern railroad this month. The
franchise was obtained fiom the cuoncll. with

was to be built within a year. No work has

much of the male population of the city has
taken to walking around in dark places alone,
at night. The police have beon unable to effect
a capture, to the delight of the men, and the

The hugger first made her appearance a week
ago and nightly since then three or four caes
of hugging have occurred. The hugger Is said
to be a stranger, is pretty, but she wears a
veil, has soft hands and dresses attractively.
Those who have met her are the envy of tl

In thus carrying bis campaign into Perkins

South Dakota Commissioners Return to
Sioux Falls from Investigating Trip
to Large Terminal PointsOne Road
Will Send 700 Cars into State at
Once to Relieve Crowded Elevators.
Bpeoial to The Journal.
Sioux Falls, S. eb 6.A thoro investi
gation of the causes of the car shortage that
has prevailed in South Dakota for several weeks
occupied the attention of the board of railroad
commissioners while on an official trip to the
big terminal points.
Prior to the board's departure numerous com
plaints had been made of alleged discrimination
in thS distribution of empty cars, and recently
the Tri-State Grain Dealers' association filed a
complaint in which it was charged, among other
things, that the railroad companies were pur
posely withholding ca.rs from the elevator men
of South Dakota. In view of the nature and
number of the complaints, the rajlroad commis
sioners deemed it best to investigate the matter
St. Paul was first vtelted There the com
missioners called on the officials of the Omaha
railroad. But few complaints had befen made
from points on this road, and these, it was
explained, were due to the fact that cars loaded
at points on the Omaha road for points on other
roads were retained by the other roads, which,
owing to the heavy demand for cars, were
wlUing to pay the per diem charge for their
use and kept the cars as long as possible.
These cars are now being returned to the Omaha
road and no further shortages are expected on
that line.
Cause of Shortage.
At Minneapolis the commissioners called on
the officials of the Milwaukee railroad, who
summarised the reasons for the car shortage on
their road about as foUows
First, because of the unusually heavy ship
ments of grain and other farm products, second,
owing to the pleasant weather experienced during
the winter the farmers were able to market
practically their entire ciops, and the grain
was rushed to market 'Within a comparatively
short time, filling the elevators to the bursting
point and making it a physical impossibility for
the railroads to furnish cais fast enough to
supply the heavy demand and keep the crops
It was pointed out by the railroad officials
that every effort had been made to make equita
ble distribution of empty cars, and that no
intentional discrimination in the distribution of
these cars had been shown. At Chicago addi
tional facts bearing on the car shortage were

A New Preparation Which Everyone
WiU Need Sooner or Later.
Almost everybody's digestion is dis^
ordered more or less, and the common
est thing they do for it is to take some
one of the many so-called blood puri
fiers, which in many cases are merely
strong cathartics. Such things are not
reeded If the organs are in a clogged
condition they need only a little help
and they will right themselves. Catn
artics irritate the sensitive linings of
the stomach and bowels and often do
more harm than good.
Purging is not what is needed. The
thing to do is to put the food in con
dition to be readily digested and as
similated. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
do this perfectly. *They partly digest
what is eaten and give the stomach
just the help it needs. They stimulate.%,
the secretion and excretion of the di
gestive fluids and relieve the congested
condition of the glands and membranes.
They put the whole digestive system
in condition to do its work. When that
is dotae you need take no more tablets,
unless you eat what does not agree
with you. Then take one or two tao- j-jS
letsgive them needed help and you ^Q
will have no trouble. $W,
