LARGE ENROLLMENT

The Lemmon schools opened

the largest enrollment on open
ing day in the history of the
school. 188 students are enroll
ed in the grades while 65 have
enrolled in the high school.
The corps of teachers for this
season were carefully selected
from a large number of appli
cants and the Lemmon schools
are fortunate indeed in securing
the services of excellent in
structoi s.
Several of the te&chers that
were in the faculty last year are
here again this vear and need
no introduction to our readers.
They are: Supt. D. A. Hay
worth Miss V. Br it ton,
teacher of Gernan and Latin
i s s I a S u z u s i a n
Demestic Science Miss Marie
Klindt, 1st Grade and Mi^s
Connie Filer, 4th and 5th Grades.
Miss Kinney, who was re-elected
iwstrncto- of the 6th and 7th
grades, was forced to resign be
cause of the ill health of
brother and Mrs. E. F. Sheets
is substituting until a suitable
teacher can be found.
Charles Lundberg, principal,
is a giaduate of Hurou and
comes here Irom Elkton, S. D.,
where he served as principal of
the high school last year. Mr.
Lund erg is well recommended

Joseph Eegium, who will

CHOftf ABE BETTER
THAN EXPECTED
The crops in the vicinity of
Lemmon are turniug out far
better than was expected after a
year of sach backward condi
tions as was experienced here
this year.
Wheat, which was considered
an almost total failure because of
the black rust, is yielding from
10 to 15 buahels and the price is
such that a good many farmers
state that they made money on
w e a e v e n i s y e a O a s
threshed out 35 to 40 bushels
per acre rye 15 to 18. barley 10
to 15 and the tlax will gj from
10 to 15 bushels. The crop of
flax this year is excellent, and the
best part of it is that a large
acreage of flax was put in this
year on account of the proposed
tow mill.
Corn is King of crps, how
ever. A person in driving
across the country can hardly
believe that he is driving
through the territory which was
once considered far out of the
corn belt. Corn is flourishing,
owever, and the greater por
tion of it is now out of danger
of frost. Yields, it iststimated,
will be as high as so bushels per
acre and a safe estimate of the
avcraft it 40 buahels.

Rain
During
First Day of Big Fair
The Second Annual Inter-State Fair opened in this city
today, and, in spite of a rainy and disagreeable weather con
dition, a large crowd was in attendance. Rain started fall
ing before daylight but at sun-tip it looked as if the skies
would clear. The weather man was obstinate, however,
and all day long it rained intcrniittantly, with the result that
the entire racing program was postponed. All events that
were scheduled for the first
day

At aoout five o'clock the aeroplane made a very pretty
flight over the fair grounds, and tomorrow, fair visitors will

John Winkel and K. J. Daljr

fered a broken collar bone and
s badly bruised and somewhat
lacerated, is not in a serious con
dition, though he wi I probably
be unable to get about for a few
weeks. Messrs. Daly and Winkel
had gone to Ismay to drive home
the Daly car which had been left
there a few weeks ago. They ar
rived at Ismav on the afternoon
train and very shortly after
wards started the return trip,
expecting to make Baker that
evening. When about four miles
west of I'levna they came to a
quick turn in the road and in
making the turn one of the hind
whee's gave way ami the car
turned over after going through
a wire fence. Mr. Winkel waa
somewhat stunned but in a few
minutes he was able to get up
and he found Mr. Daly uncon
scious, Both men had been
thrown about, twenty feet. An
automobile rarne along and Mr.
Daly was taken to I'levna where
he remained in an unconscioaa
condition until three o'c'ock the
next morning. The day they
came home on the train both re

have been made in a box rather

"The reason why the tractor

Soth Dakota State Fair," says
Secretary C. N. Mcllvaine, "is
heease the exposition is in the
heart of the greatest agricultur
