THE PIANO LITTER OF CREDIT SCBEME The certificate, contest and puzzle schemes evolve at times some humor ous phases that tend to ease the mind of those who are inclined to worry about the ethics of the piano trade, for fre quently some mind digests the possi bilities of profit and losa on the part of the public as against the profit ?nd loss on the part of the piano man, who seeks to cultivate the almighty dollar through the evident inclination of the world at large to get that which costs nothing. - A bright mind on the Pacific coast, sends the following lette." in response to a piano manufacturer, who gives thousands of dollars (in credit) to all who can solve a simple puzzle: Oakland, Cal., March 25,1910. Gentlemen : I have to acknowledae the receipt of your circular latter informinir m* that I am the fortunate winner of “The highest prise,” and entitled to credit of $216. 1 congratulate you on having a live advertising man. Your scheme, though neither new nor original, ia a catchy one. It oasists materially in keeping the prices of your instruments up to their normal high standard for which they are so iustly noted. You evidently have more pianos than you need for your own use. and It ia very kind of you to offer to sell me one at your own price and to help me pay for it. By the way. I have more dogs then I need in my business, and would like to dispose of one. He's a smooth, yellow fellow and is both hunter and setter—that ia, he hunts bones and seta in the back yard. The dog's name is Moreover. It is a scriptural name. We read in the bible where the beggar sat at the gate of the temple, and that "Moreover”, the dog. licked his sores.” Now the price on this dog. Moreover, for the purpose of this contest ia 1172.30. I am herewith enclosing a check for $l5O, d.awn in favor of my New York agent, which will be accepted by me as a part payment on the dog. You will not have to pay the balance in cash. In fact, easy terms of sl2, $lO or SB, yes. even $6. a month can be ar ranged. Thanking you kindly for the kindly interest you have taken in my welfare, and hoping you will be come the fortunate possessor of my justly cele brated dog. Moreover, and sincerely wishing you great success in your benevolent efforts to benefit mankind. Very truly yours. Timothy Hay. P. S. Please explain bow several of my neigh bor* could also receive the "high prize” if you awarded the prize to me.

VIROQUA, WISCONSIN, DECEMBER 21,1910 OBSERVER’S TUN AND SENTIMENT Some Pleasant Catches That art Ex pressive Did you ever stop to wonder what a lot of mischief you might get into if you didn’t have to work so hard for a living? Heaven helps those who help them selves, but tnere are some people so lazy that they do not even co-operate with heaven. They tvant heaven or their wives to all the work. Down in Illinois a smooth solicitor persuaded a lot of merchants to pay for ads in a souvenir book and then left the books, unpaid for and undistributed, with the man who printed them. News paper ads don’t work that way. They get out and work for you and bring results. Our school systems are planned as the training places for citizenship. The excuse of a public school system in a democracy is its work in fitting the children to assume the duties of citi zenship. And on tne teachers rests the responsibility for this training. We cannot have good citizens if wc do not teach them to meet the calls of life, which means a great deal more than merely being able to meet public ques tion with fair intelligence. It moans readiness to advance in civilization, .to provide for the family and to do a pa rent’s share in training future genera tions so the work of teacher broadens and grows. ’’ Said or Written to th Ccnaor A. S. Cobb, Fleak, North Dakota: “This is Thanksgiving day and as pleasant as September. 1 shall finish my plowing tomorrow, no bad weath having intervened to prevent up to this date. lam doing all my farm work and I find it pretty tiresome to do what younger men are able to accomplish. Our crops were not good on account of continued drought, but we have enough of everything to keep us through the winter, and to spare—two big ricks of hay and straw for our stock, ten big loads of coal thet I secured two miles distant' by simply digging it from mother earth. Tne fuel provided by nature is a bIeSL ng to settlers that the pioneers of South Dakota prairies had not. In this section of North Dakota there is abundance of coal and it is easy of access. Land is advam ing in price here. When Uncle Sam gives me a clear title to my holdings in a year or two I am inclined to think I will sell and seek a warmer climate. My claim ought to bring $5,000 by that time. I have accumulated about me a fine bunch of live stock and a good var iety of farm implements. 1 am for tunate in keeping out of debt, some thing but few homesteaders do. We are much nearer civilization now, the railroad being only twelve miles from us. We have had no snow to date and roads are as smooth as pavement.” Thai** Some Buaineia, We Gueaa Bloomingdale creamery owners held their annual meeting on a recent day and the showing made in profits is something phenomenal. The capital stock is 111 shares at $25 each. Rev ceipts for the year were $27,466.56, ex penses $24,221.63, net balance $3,244 93. On the capital stock 8 per cent was paid. Besides 4 cents per pound for all butter fat was paid shareholders. A reserve fund of $646.20 is to be di vided up and paid shareholders next June, or $4 92 on each share of $25. Can Standard Oil magnates show such profits on investments? Scarcely. The creamery made 91,930 pounds of butter. Average price paid for butter fat for year 34 1-6 cents. Who will attempt to claim that Bloomingdale creamery has poor management when such re sults are shown. Band Concert The Third Infantry band will give a concert in Opera house, next Monday night. A program of classical and pop ular numbers has been selected with a view of making an entertainment of exceptional merit and well worthy the patronage of all. The following mem bers from out of town have signified their intention of being present for the occasion, and will assist: Ben Norris, Jesse Saugstad, Edward Norris, Law rence and Frank Dickson. Also the members who are attending school, will be home, and the management expects to present a well balanced band of .“bout thirty members. The boys are planning to'make this an annual event. Make your plans to be present and give the band a large- house which they justly deserve. Christmas Exercises st the Asylum Superintendent Wilkins will this year follow his usual custom of giving the patients at our county asylum a “Christ mas tree.” Relatives and friends of the inmates are asked to send gifts by mail or express prepaid. Money may be sent and purchase made here of such articles as the patient most needs.

Bscheller of La Crosse against Clinton Nuzum of Viroqua. The facts established by the evidence, are substantially these: On August 24, while touring through La Crosse, Mr. Nuzum ran over and killed a dog belonging to the plaintiff. At the point of accident, boys were play ing in the center of the street, with the dog midway between them and the curb. To take the curb meant a de molished car; to take the other side meant to hazard the lives of the boys. The ordinary city dog learns to take care of himself in times of trouble— this one didn’t. The court virtually held that while the dog enjoyed the same priviclges on the highway as the auto, it was incumbent upon him to not obstruct the wheels of commerce. It is neither desirable nor commenda tory to bear the reputation of harbor ing a disregard for life-even the life of a dog. The young man has never borne that reputation, always being re garded as a sane and zareful driver, so the decision in his favor is especially gratifying. The testimony clearly es tablished the fact that he endeavored to avoid the accident Several thoughts may be deduced from this case that can be expressed with benefit. They are: That the automobile is here—and here to stay; that while some drivers are careless, the majority are not; that it is the part of wisdom to regard the auto witnout prejudice or bias, and to ascertain calm ly w nether an intentional wrong has been perpetrated before rushing into expensive legal procedure; that while great attachments may be formed for canines, the dog is really not a neces sary adjunct to our modem civilization, and certainly is not worth the cost and the heartburn involved in a suit of this kind, even though he might be inten tionally run down by a speed maniac.

Fisher Explains Provisions of New Lsw on That Subject Editor Censor: I have had so many inquiries in regard to the law that took effect December Ist, and the testing of cattle for tuberculosis, that if yqu will allow me a little space I will try to ans wer some of them. Some have the impression that the cows must be tested, or they can no longer patronize the creamery or cheese factory. That is a mistake The only law concerning patronizirg the factor ies is: You must not take to factory milk testing less than three per cent, butter fat, nor cream testing less than eighteen per cent, butter fat, or you are liable to fine and imprisonment as provided by law. Others think the law applies to those retailing and wholesaling milk, but it does not. Some of the larger cities, La Crosse, Milwaukee and others, have laws that milk shall be sold only from cows tested for tuberculosis, but this is purely a city ordinance that Viroqua or any city can pass, but is not a state law. But the same three per cent, and eighteen per cent, state law applies to all milk dealers, even if, only sol! one quart per day. Others think they cannot kill and sell the meat unless the animal has been tested, but they can. The law does not apply to animals that are being sold for slaughter, or for a short-feeding period. The law is not very plain in some re spects, but it seems to be the intent to cover only tne buying and selling for dairy purposes. Why this should be so I don’t understand, for infected meat is certainly just as unwholesome and dangerous as the milk and butter from dairy cows. Some of our best scien tists claim that bovine tuberulosis is not transmissable to the human family, but if it is not we would prefer to have meat and milk from healthv animals, and the only known way to ne sure of this is to apply the tuberculin test. While the law does not compel anyone to test unless they want to sell, yet 1 think every farmer and dairyman should be interested enough in the health of his family and cattle to go to the ex pense of a test. Then you would at least be safe and satisfied 1 believe it is only a short time until the law will compel everyone to test. This would be the bettor way, for if we hud the disease it could all be stamped out at one time, but now some will have to test, so we can never tell when the dis ease is stamped out. The law providea ways for the dispos al of animals that react to the tubercu lin teat. One very bnd feature of the law is there is no limit to what the par ties doing the testing can charge, and only a favored few can have a permit to test, ao it looks ua sort of a pension provided for these few. However, this may be rectified later, for the work is not difficult to do. There isn't a neigh borhood but what has one or more dairymen or farmers who with a little reading and practice, can apply the test just as well as a veterinarian. While it takea just as long to test one or two animals as it does to test twenty, yet if parties in town with from one to three head can get several together at one place, the tester can do the work very muen cheaper for all. If any other questions not covered in this article in regard to the law, test ing for tuberculosis or organizing cew teating associations, are sent in to the Censor, or my address, 1 will try to answer them or find someone who can. Viroqua, Route .‘l. G B. Fisher. 'ROUND AND ABOUT US With its tost issue the De Soto Ar gus embarked on its ninth yearly voy age of newspaper crafting, with sails set for larger and deeper waWt. The Arg us always sails with a good cargo and carries ballast sufficient to guar antee a safe return to home harbor. There are the usual winter pros spective railroad buildings now that tnere ia time to talk and write about such matters. The Richlttnd Center papers project an interurba l line from thHt cit> to Yuba or Viroqua, the same being agitated by managers of the Pacific Coast Condensary Company, which recently located at the Center to condense and can milk for world trade. Recent deaths of aged people in the Kickapoo section of the county are John Shilling in the town of Liberty, and Mrs. Philip Hayes of Stark town. Both were long-time residents of their respective communities. La Farge high school walloped On tario highs at basket ball, 17 to 13, and now there is rejoicing because La Farge won its first honors in a game away from home. After an illness extending over sev eral years William Potts died at his home in the town of Clinton on the 14th instant. He was a native of the town, passed the 65th year, a popular citizen who leaves to mourn his going a wife and six children. Thorbjom Erickson Lee. a native of Norway and a resident of the town of Christiana since 1862, died on the farm where his parents settled after locating in the county. He was born in 1840 and died December 8, leaving widow and four children. Victory of Old Fame When it comes to antiquity, Victory has us all beaten. It was named for the victory of white soldiers over the disorganized band of Indians led by Black Hawk, although hi-tory does not accord high honpr fur that accom plishment. Poor old Black Hawk and nis miserable followers were no more than the weak remnant of a vagabond crew at the beginning of the war that ended in the battle of Rad Ax, and small glory is given to the closing scenes of the so called conflict. In an early day Victory was largely occupied by French traders, who dealt with the Indians and pioneers. But Victory has always been a fine little village, a de lightful place of residence and a good commercial point. In the vanished days of the steamboat it was a place of importance. —De Soto Argus. Jut * Good Broad Hint A county superintendent in a village not far from here asked every teacher at the county institute who took their local or county paper, to hold up their hand and only six responded out of 200. He expressed a great surprise and said: ‘‘You don’t spend a dollar a year with those papers, yet you expect them to print free notices of all institutes, in sert in their columns long programs, expect them to advertise you, thus as sisting you to climb the ladder to bet ter positions and better salaries, with out a cent in return.—Ex.
