On October 19, the Sheaf is going
to award to the candidates, absolutely
free, over $900.00 in prizes. Among
the many valuable prizes are two
high grade pianos. Two of the candi

Any of the candidates can win one of
the pianos by working hard from now

the pianos work hard every day and
get all your friends to work for you.
The paramount object of this big

greatly increase the circulation of the
Sheaf by adding many new readers to
the Sheaf's already large list. With
this object in view the Sheaf made
the JKresent big vote offer on new sub

will receive 55,000 votes for every 25
new local subscribers that she turns
in up to Oct. 9. Girls, if you want
to win one of the pianos, try to make
your total 100 new subscribers before
that date.
The following is a list of the candi
dates and their respective standing
up to and including Wednesday, Sept.
Climbing up a ladder amid amose
and flames to rescue a child, a fire
man was halted, when he almost had
reached the window, by the seeming
ly insuperable difficulty of his task.
Just as he was to turn back baffled,
someone in the crowd below cried out,
"Cheer him! Cheer him!" Nerved by
the encouragement that went up, the
fireman made one more effort and
rescued the child.
The story illustrates the truth that
what most men need, when the grip
of difficulties, is appreciation and
cheer. Yet it is human nature to let
approval remain passive,, while criti
cism is most active. How many in
the congregation, having heard a
helpful sermon that, has cost the
preacher much time and effort thank
him for what he has done? Every
actor knows how much better work
he can do-when the audience is warm
ly responsive. Every singer has had
i the experience of being baffled by the
coldness of his hearers.
Sympathy and understanding are
two great human heedsand sympa
thy means understanding. There are
rare souls that thrive somehow with
out these helps, that reach the
heights over paths of misery and
loneliness. But most of us in this
world* need each other. Oftentimes it
is a stupid ashamedness of our better
selves that causes us to hide our feel-
h," ing. Our Anglo-Saxon stoicism gets
ii in the way and prevents us from be
ing properly proud of our higher,sen-
s' sibiMties.
He who is run over in the street is
3 hurried to the hospital and treated
ffi with the tenderest care. But where is
'k? the hospital where broken hearts are
*$*- made whole by sympathy?
f|t Criticism has its place, it's neces
sary place in the scheme of things.
But so, too, has approval. Expressed
at the right moment, inspired by real
understanding, it is a powerful inspi
ration to climb higher.-Minneapolis

An Enemy of the Potato Beetle
During the past year or two ac
counts have come from various
sources throughout Ontario of a new
enemy to the potato beetle which has
made its appearance. This insect
looks like a full cousin to the potato
beetle, slightly longer, more pointed
head and brilliant colorings of black
and red, head red with two minute
black spots proboscis black red
horseshoe-like marking on back. The
insect is very lively, he stabs his
game with a spear like apparatus and
after sucking it dry discards the
shell. The eggs are black and laid in
clusters similar to those of the potato
beetle. These new insects do not
appear to eat vegetation of any kind,
their sole food being the potato bee
tle. May their seed wax great in the
land until the potato beetle scourge
becomes but a memory.
The potato beetle has been a source
of great annoyance and expense in
this district during the past three
years, which, in all probability came
from Ontario. Let us hope that this
welcome insect will also make the
west its future home and a favorable
clime in which to dp his deadly work.
In fact it might be well to import a
few of them that we might also rid
ourselves of this abominable pest,
which our good citizens have been
so unsuccessful in annihilating.Ox

1 Secretary Wilson of the depart-
ment of agriculture was talking about
the record crops of 1912.
"These wonderful crops," he said,
"are almost enough to make you be
lieve the cross-cut saw story.
"A farmer, you know, sent his hir
ed man to a neighbor's with a note
saying: -yy ,^:h j}
0 'Friend' Smith: TT Will you please
lend me your cross-cut saw, as I wish
to cut a watermelon up so as to get
'it into my dray?" ^y-
"The neighbor wrote back:
'Friend Jones: I would be glad to
'lend you my saw, but same has just
got stuck- in a canteloupe.'"

the Clapp committee of the senate,
which he charged with probing the
Roosevelt campaign but sparing Taft
and Wilson, Senator Dixon, Roose
velt's campaign manager, for two
hours kept the committee in a tur
moil today.
Senatorial courtesy was flung to
the winds. Dixon charged the com
mittee with acting unfairly. The sen
ators demanded that he answer their
questions instead of making "stump
speeches." Dixon declared defiantly
that Roosevelt was not getting a
"square deal." Senator Clapp, Roose
velt worker, angrily rebuked Dixon,
saying he (Clapp) alone was respon
sible for the line of inquiry.

Amund Johnson, one of the first
settlers in town of Foldahl passed
away last Saturday, Sept. 28, aged
C5 years, 9 months and 1 9days.
Deceased was born in Norway and
came to this country in 1870, living
at Chicago, Minneapolis andv other
places. He was married to l^s Em
ma -Haugen in Minneapolis in 1881. In
1881 he came to Marshall county lo
cating on the homestead on which
he has resided ever since, and which
he has by industry and thrift devel
oped into one of the best farms in the
township. He was one of the organ
izers of Foldahl township in 1883, and
has held the office of supervisor con
tinually since, with the "exception of
one. year. He also was one of the
orgajnizers of the Skandinaviske Far
mer^ Mutual Insurance Company.
Deceased took an active interest
in everything that tended to promote
the material and spiritual welfare of
the community in which he lived. He
was active in church and Sunday
school work and in educational mat
ters.v. Honest and upright in all his
dealings, he was, respected by all for
his virtues as a citizen, neighbor and
friend. He was one of whom it may
be said: "He was the salt of the

again. In doing so the front of his
coat caught in the belt and was being
pulled in between the belt and wheel.
As he grabbed with his gloved hand
for that part of the coat with a view
of liberating it from the wheel, the
hand also caught between the belt
ami the wheel, with the I'esuk that
the thumb was torn completely from
the hand tvO. both the bon^s of the
forearm were broken, one of them in
two places, making what is called a
compound fracture, and the other in
one place. Wh#h the glove was pull
ed off the hand after the accident,
the thumb also followed, so complete
ly was it severed. Mr. Hilleboe was
hurried as quickly as possible to the
city hospital, where his injuries are
receiving the best attention. The
doctors will probably be able to save
the rest of the hand if no complica

distressing one, and Mr. Hilleboe's

interviewing the voters in regard to
his candidacy for said office.
During the last five months num
erous reports have been received by
the Bureau of Animal Industry rela
tive to the existence of forage poison
ing in various sections of the United
States particularly in Louisiana, West
Virginia, Kansas, and Nebraska. It
has usually occurred when a*hot ,dry
period has been followed by rains, or
during wet seasons, especially those
which are characterized by frequent
rains alternating with hot sunshine,
producing a damp sultry atmosphere.
Such conditions are most favorable
to the production of molds, and all
outbreaks that have been investigated
by the Bureau have been traced to
the eating of unsound or moldy for
age or feed, or to the drinking water
from wells or pools containing surface
water drained through decomposed
and moldy vegetation. The disease
has been shown to be also due to eat
ing damaged ensilage, hay, corn,
brewers' grains, oats, etc. Horses and
mules at pasture may contract the dis
ease when the growth of grass is so
profuse that it mats together and the
lower part dies and ferments or be
comes moldy. No specific organism or
virus has yet been found which can
be considered as the cause of this dis
The so-called cerebro-spinal menin
gitis disease from that which occurs
in man, the symptoms as well as the
cause are distinctly different In the
most rapidly fatal attacks death takes
place in from 5 to 49 hours. Such
cases begin with violent trembling or
stupor and extreme weakness, or with
staggering gait, partial or total inabil
ity to swallow, impairment of eye
sight, followed by partial or complete
paralysis, inability to stand, With
marked delirium, during which the
animal lying flat on its side becomes
violent and knocks and bruises its
head. In the second form of the dis
ease the same line of symptoms may
be noticed in a milder degree. Difficul
ty in swallowing, slowness in chew
ing the food and inability to switch
the tail are-observed Breathingbe

may develop v.ith stiffness of "the spi
nal muscles or partial champ of the
neck and jaws. Death occurs in from
6 to 10 days. In the last or mildest
form the lack of voluntary control of
the limbs becomes" but slightly mark
ed, the power of swallowing never en
tirely lost, and the animal has no fe
ver, pain, or unconscious movements.
In those cases which get well the ani
mal generally begins to improve about
the fourth day and goes on to recov
ery. One attack does not protect
against a second attack, as horses
and mules have been known to have
the disease two or three times.
The first principle in the treatment
of this disease consists in a total
change of feed and forage. Horses
kept in the stable should be fed with
sound forage and grain from an uu
eontaminated source, even if such
feed has to be brought from a dis
tance. Horses that have become af
fected while at pasture should be re
moved from the field in which they
have been running. The animals
should be brought to the barn or cor
ral and fed on wholesome and clean
feed and forage. The water, unless
from an unpolluted source, should
likewise be changed.
At present this preventive treat
ment is the only satisfactory method
known for checking the disease, as
all medicinal remedies used have
been unsatisfactory in the vast major
ity of cases. The first step is to empty
the bowels and remove the poisonous,
products, but on account of the dif
fiulty in swallowing, an aloes ball or
Glauber's salt is hard to give. In fact
no remedy should be given by the
mouth if the throat is paralyzed, as
pneumonia is liable to result. Fifteen
grains of barium chlorid injected into
the juglar vein, or 2 grains of eserin
under the skin, if the animal is not
too greatly depressed, will usually
act promptly. Intestinal disinfect
ants such as calomel, salicylic acid,
and creolin are also .used. If much
weakness is showji and the tempera
ture is below normal give aromatic
spirits of amonia, digitalis, alcohol,
ether, or comphor. Rectal injections
of warm water are good, and warm
blankets wrung out of hot water may
also be applied to the body. .Subse
quent treatment should consist of 2-
grain doses of strichnin twice daily,
or a mixture of 2 drams tincture nux
vomica and one-half ounce of Fowler's
solution given at one dose, and re
peated three times daily, to combat
the effect of the poison upon the ner
vous system.
