Mitchell, S. D., Dec. 25. —The
South Dakota and Western rail
road, before it will be given a
permit to build from Mitchell to
Piatte over a route nearly iden
tical to that already laid out by
the Dakota and Southwestern
railway, will be required to give
a guarantee of good faith by fil
ingabond with the state com
mission and show reason for a
second line. This is the opinion
expressed by P. W. Dougherty,
member of the state railway
This refusal is intended to test
the sincerity of the promoters of
the South Dakota and Western
line. C. W. Felton of Sioux City,
one of the promoters of the pro
posed road, is an official of the
Milwaukee system.
The state railway commission
is of the opinion that the railroad
company incorporated by J. Ro
sholt and the Winstead bothers,
is sincere in its intentions to
build over the proposed route
and that unless there is some
valid reason to the contrary that
road should be protected in its
first application for the right.
The state railway commission
will set o date early^.in January
for a hearing in the case.

the country. 3.000,000 points
were thrown out by the judges
because improperly filled out
and there were at least 500,000
that were without the signatnrc
of the contestant.
Messrs. Van Cleave, Emerson
and Sampson, who acted as jud
ges, were busily engaged in
ounting votes for five hours anri
the amount of coupons far ex
ceded the greatest expectations.
The total of advertising spac*
that has been signed for and was
in the box reached 28,000 inches
and as each ad had to be meas
ured this took up the greatest
share of the judge's time.
But for one circumstance,
Jones would have won the Gra
anola and that was his failnre to
to have the ad of one of the lum
ber concerns entered in the bal
lot box and this cost him 300,000
The Herald is well pleased
with the result of the contest in
asmuch as it has stimulated ad*
vertising, stimulated trade with
advertisers and stimulated inter
est in advertising as well as ser
vedas a good advertisement of
the Lemmon Herald.
Since the contest was an ex
periment and had never before
been attempted by any newspa
per. there were a number of
faults to be found in the hand
ling of it and without donbt ihe
system upon which it was run
could be changed for the better,
but as a whole it was a posit
ive success. The merchants is
sued coupons for at least $40,000,
worth of business and this ir it-!
self is positive proof that a great
deal of interest was taken ir0
contest since no merchant g:.ve
out coupons unless asked fo£
them. Many people made it a'
point to pay up their accoui^|!
that they might get the coupon^
and even paid before their ac
counts were due, while others
who had planned to buy a num
ber of things in the sprirg chan
ged their minds and purchased I
while the contest was on.
Another feature of the contest
that very seldom is found in con
tests of any kind, was the fact
that it cost nothing to er ter and
nn one was cut a cent whether
they won or lost, except probab
ably the Herald management.
In case that any one iisputes
the judge's decision the ballot
box containing the coupons re
mains intact and anyone may
have the privilege of goinp over
the figures or recount the entire
40,000.000 points which are in
the box.
Winter Rye n. Winter Wheat
For Central S. D.
Basing our judgment on the
results obtained by comparative
trials at Highmore and Eureka,
we conclude that winter rye is
the only winter grain hardy
enough for the conditions in the
region between the James Valley
and the Missouri River in South
Dakota and that if winter wheat
is to be grown at all some meth
od must be found to give it win
ter protection. Two methods
are suggested for trial firs, to
seed between standing corn and
leave the stalks to catch the
snow second, to spread straw
over the young wheat for pro
tection late in the fall, If this
is tried, care must be taken to
spread the straw evenly and thin
ly. loo thick a mulch will de
stroy the wheat by smothering.

Flavor is most important, for
the value of bread depends larg
ely upon its taste.
The bread should te light
throughout, determined largely
by the use of the proper amount
of veast and allowing bread to
rise the proper length of time,
(until it just doubles its bulk).
Grain and texture are decided
largely by the kneading which
evenly distributes the yeast, thus
insuring a fine even grain.
The crumb should be a creamy
white, not dingy and gray, and
should be moist and elastic, with
no doughir.ess
The crust should be thin, gold
en brown and flaky.
The loaf should not be too
large to bake well in the center.

Securing a Well Bortt C§k!f
So many people think that
when a cow goes dry and is pre
paring to freshen, it is not nec
essary to give her much feed.
She is often turned out to run in
the cold cornfield during the day
and to seek her shelter in a dug
out during the night. We should
remember that the dairy cow
is a mother and during the time
that the calf is developing with
in her she should have good feed
and good care. Ever calf has
a right to be well nourished in
the pre-natal stage and a right
to be well born. Many calves
are dropped weaklings with such
a start in life that it is often dif
ficult to raise them. Such calves
are not able to stand the difficul
ties and unfavorable conditions
which usually surround most
calves on a farm. —By Prof C.
Larsen, S. D. State College.
