GEORGE W. EGAN, FIGHTER. There is a sportsman's instinct that stirs men to enthusiasm when a game fighter wins a battle against odds, without much regard to the cause for which he has been fighting. This in stinct will find expression over the reinstatement of George \V. Egan as a practicing attorney by the South Da kota supreme court. "Whatever else he may be, Egan is the best single handed fighter ever developed in South Dakota politics. Disbarred by the Minnehaha County S3ai association early in his career in South Dakota, the young lawyer from Eowa was apparently down and out. Even though, as Egan strenuously protested, the disbarment was due to a complication of political, legal and business motives, nobody believed that the handicap thus created could be •overcome. Even his friends, and they were not many ai that time, expected he would pack his traps and make a new start elsewhere under more auspicious conditions. But Egan didn't quit for a minute. Having lost his fight before the bar association, he took it to the supreme court, only to lose again. Then he took an ap peal to the electorate of Minnehaha county by projecting his candidacy for county attorney, an office for which he could not qualify while the disbarment stood. Egan said he wasn't particularly interested in the office lie wanted the vindication. He pleaded his case so eloquently and •effectively that the voters of .Minne haha county actually elected him to the office that he could not fill— elected him by one of the largest ma jorities ever given in the county. Mr. Egan made another fight to be al lowed to qualify, and lost it. of course. Still he wasn't ready to quit. Unable to practice his profession, Egan established a weekly newspaper in Sioux Falls, mainly on nerve. With rare egotism, as nearly every body thought, he announced that the mission of his newspaper would be the vindication of Egan, and as a means to that end, the promotion of his independent candidacy for gov ernor. It did not seem likely that anybody would care to pay for or read such a purely personal organ, but many must have done so, for Egan continued to hang on, publish ing a long serial story of his troubles, *md discharging weekly broadsides at his political and personal enemies and at the courts, which he contended •had denied him justice. Egan's news paper regularly presented him as a candidate for governor, but politicians smiled at the absurdity of the notion. When the primary campaign of 1910 opened there seemed to be no place for Egan. The old factional lines in the republican party were drawn anew and factional slates were prepared. The faction with which Egan was in sympathy was supporting the governor of the state, then serving his first term. The opposing faction had a candidate of its own, and had -no use for Egan in any event. In the •circumstances it was supposed Egan would not present his candidacy at the primary as a republican, but •might project an independent candi idacy in the fall. This was another poor guess. Egan entered the pri mary in competition with the other two republican candidates, and the subsequent proceedings amazed all onlookers. Egan hired an automobile and pro ceeded to give the term "whirlwind campaign" new significance in South Dakota. He traveled from town to town, holding open air meetings and presenting his personal and political campaign with fiery eloquence and enthusiasm that infected the crowds. The reports began to go the rounds that "Egan was getting the voters," but still the politicians refused to take him seriously as a factor in the cam paign. When the primary returns iegan to roll in, however, it was found there was basis for the reports. Egan had got the voters, tens of thousands of them, from towns and farms alike. On the day following the election it seemed sure that he had iieen nominated. The official returns showed he had distanced one of the factional candidates and had just fallen short of beating the other. It was generally admitted that if the -whirlwind campaign" had covered more territory Egan would have won the nomination. Egan disappointed the guessers again by not taking an independent candidacy to the polls, where, on tlie stirface of things, he might easily have held the balance of power. In stead he preferred to hold his stand ing as a republican and point to the astounding primary vote as a popular reversal of the supreme court's judg ment in the disbarment case. Evi dently the supreme court itself was impressed with the significance of the demonstration. It permitted a re opening of the old case and following the withdrawal of many offensive ^utterances made by Egan during the heat of the campaign, it reversed itself and restored Egan's credentials as a practicing attorney. The interesting question regarding the extraordinary Egan is, What next?—Sioux City Journal. KIRON ITEMS. Victor Gustis and C. R. Lundell went in to Chicago Saturday evening with stock shipments. A traveling salesman, who lias trav eled over this line for several years, stated at the depot one day last week that what surprised him was the great amount of all kinds of freight unloaded at Kiron and according to his observation and estimation there was no other town on the line that could beat it. Charles Johnson, of Alcestcr, ri. D., spent several dayd in Kiron attending business and goaing acquainted with our people.

Clauson on last Thurs day afternoon with an attendance of over sixty. As it was its annual meet ing the work for the past year was re viewed and the reports conveyed most encouraging figures. Mrs. Otto Clauson was re-eiectrd 1-ader and Mrs. R. L. Anderson assistant. Arthur Jacobsen came home Friday afternoon for an over-Sunday stay, re turning Monday aorning to bis col lege studies at the Denison college. On Friday evening some over sixty gathered at the home of Miss Esther Anderson to spend the evening with her. As they had not made her aware of their coming it was a complete sur prise. After the guests had all made themselves at home, Rev. A. Young berg, in a shore speech, told her the object of the visitors' coming as they did unannounced to spend the evening, and to show their appreciation of her services as organist at the Mission church, and in his concluding remarks presented her with a sum of money in behalf of his visitors. After several short speeches and listening to sev eral songs and selections of music, the ladies served a lap lunch they had provided. Esther, as well as her guests, will remember the pleasant event for a long time. Some of our farmers went to Deni son one day last week and were pres ent when the county supervisors con sidered the Four Mile Grove road question. For a long time the bridge over the Boyer on this road has been out, much to the inconvenience of the traveling public. It is the main road leading to Vail and tc the timber south ol ihe river, where a large number of our tax payers and farmers own tim ber pieces. The matter has at re peated times been brought up before the board and at one time a large pe tition was sent them by our tax pay ers to put in a new bridge. Very Ut ile attention the board paid to all these demands and finally alter all this time they met last week and decided to vacate the road. This is an unjust and most unsatisfactory piece of work, which a traveling public and the ta. •myers have now to be contented with. While it favors a few who will be benefitted by it, it will be at the ex pense of quite a number who own timber pieces in the grove who will either have to make a number of miles around to get to their timber or else dispose of the same to the land own ers on that side of the river for what they can get out of it. From all re ports, steps may yet be taken to have the decision ot the board revoked. WEST DENISON ITEMS. (Too late for last week.)

Suggestion for Grafting Trees. Waxing is one of the most impor ant factors in successful grafting. The work must be done carefully, that the scions be not disturbed, and complete ly, that all air and moisture shall be excluded. A very good wax is made by melting together four pounds of resin, two pounds of beeswax and one pound of tallow. When melted pour into a tub of cold water to cool then pull, the same as for taffy, until it is of a clear golden color. Of course grafting should be done 011 warm, brighL days otherwise the wax hard ens so quickly it is difficult to do the work well. Young trees may be re topped in a single season a tree eight to ten years old in two years. Bad Manners. Complaints are common of the lack of manners in the young men of to day. In most instances this may be traced to want of training in early youth. You cannot begin too soon if you want to make your son a gentle man in the best sense of the word. From babyhood teach him to give in to his sisters, because they are girls and need consideration. If he pulls their hair or kicks them—for, alas! small boys are often bullies—never pass over such an offense. Do not allow any rudeness or disrespect. De mand courteous treatment, make him bring you a chair, open the door when you leave the room, walk 011 the outer .side of the pavement, and, in fact, be have to you as he will to other wo men in the future. ED HOWE PARAGRAPHS. (From The Atchison Globe.) Remember a man's prejudice when he makes a prediction. There is nothing people remark about so quickly as stinginess in oth ers. A good salesman makes you think he is helping you, instead of working you. When people say you have "funny" ways they mean you have foolish ways. No man has such a good friend that he will not try to work him to invest in his schemes. Those who are actually in society are not as ridiculous as those who are trying to get in. 1893-1911 The Boys When given as soon as the croupy cough appears Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will ward off an attack of croup and prevent all danger and cause of anxiety.
