South Dakota Letter.
Cottonwood, S. D., May 14, 1910.
Dear Readers of The Reporter—I
am an old lady from Iowa, who came
here about eleven years ago, and. I
want a little apace in your paper. We
live five miles from the town of Cot
tonwood) a railroad town on the
Northwestern Ry. This is the place
to live, in a sunshine state. We can
raise anything we want to. We get 29
cents for our butter, and last winter
during the holidays eggs were $1.00
per dozen. I had thirty-six dozen
packed. Say, that was rich. I read
The Reporter which comes to the
Gardner girls, who formerly lived at
Leon. I notice there are so" many
Decatur county people coming out to
this state, but they never say what
part. But if any'of our oldor young
friends pass Cottonwood, let us
know, and "dad" as he is called here,
will drive up for you, and you can
make us a visit. We always have
something to eat and a little to spare
but'all the same we don't get found
ered like my big cousin, Charley
Hatfield, did. We don't call it
founder here, it is loco, but I hope
he didn't lose his toe nails. That
looks pretty bad, Charles. One
drawback here is we don't have many
churches. Just two in our town, Con
gregational and Catholic. Our town
is only three years old next August.
Of course several parties have proved
up, sold eut and gone back to their
wife's people, but there are new ones
coming all the time, and that makes
it nice: I like this country very
much and would not like to go back
to Iowa to live. Not that I don't
like it there and the people, but this
country I like better. We have our
orchards of all kinds of trees and an
abundance of strawberries. We had
lovely weather in March and April
and are having plenty of rain at
present. The small grain looks fine
now and the gardens are nice. There
has not been much corn planted yet
but thank fortune we don't have to
have our seed corn shipped in as
every man has his own. We raise
good corn here. Our boys all have
land here, those that are old enough,
just one to file yet, and he will be old
enough to file in seven months. I
have 150 young chickens. Took off
22 on Washington's birthday. Can
any of you beat that? Well, I will
close hoping this letter will be the
means of some of my old friends
back there writing to me, including
two of my brothers," I remain your
old friend.

For the week ending May 15,
Des Moines, Iowa^
The past week was unseasonably-:
cool, and except in the extreme south—-'
eastern county it was abnormally dry
prior to the 15th. Frost occurred!'
generally on the 12th, 13th and 14thi.i
with freezing temperature on the Iast|f
date in the northern distrirts. There«i
was, however, more than the average^
aniount of sunshine and rapid pro-
gress was made in corn planting..
Fully 70 per cent of the corn haa?
been planted with the ground gener-
ally in excellent physical condition,,
but owing, to the cold weather the
seed is germinating very slowly, anjfe!
considerable replanting will be dpne-~
especially in southern districts where
the ground is damp from the heavy
rains of the previous week. Small!
grain and grass, while making alow
growth, are doing as well as couldi
be expected under the unfavorable-
conditions and some improvement is-i
reported. Early potatoes which were
frozen in April are coming up again
arid are looking well. The prospectas.
for fruit are very poor. The week'
closes with rain falling in all parts"
of the state.
