km life." •Sfii M,#T0"Y 47 f&RCAUT'S CLAIM TO CHAMPIONSHIP NOT QUESTIONED 4 Ralph Parcaut it the undisput ed world's middleweight wrestling champion," stated his manager, J. A. Heng in a letter to the Times Journal Friday which was written in order to clear up an impression gained by an article published in a local paper stating that Parcaut failed to make the middleweight weight and for this reason the title did not pass to him after he had defeated Meyers at Spencer Iowa, August 25, last, "This information is contrary to the facts," Heng stated, "for Par caut weighed 157 pounds at 3:00 p. m. on the day of the match. Thit can be verified by Ed. White of Chicago and also that he weighed 157% pounds at the ringside on the night of the match. I do not think that Mr. White or Johnny Meyers lay any claim to the title and the only thing that could re flect on the title is the fact that Meyers was suffering from a dis ease of the eyes, contracted from Billy Schober on July 5 in their match at Knoxville. Aside from th is Meyers was fn the pink of condition and put up the match of "It was not our f^ult that he en tired the match handicapped with infected eyes," Heng continues, "and this fact does not have any bearing on the passing of the championship title, for we won fair and square and are willing to •i Get Your School.

REPUBLICAN RALLY TN PHILIP FRIDAY NIGHT Hon. William Williamson of Oa coma, the republican candidate for congress, will speak at Pohle'sj Hall in Philip Friday evening, Oc-| tober 8th. There will probably be ther speakers present, and local republicans are planning to make this the big rally of the year in Philip. Friends from the country are especially invited to attend. The new woman voters too are u ged to be present. Judge William son is an able man and a convinc ing speaker. He comes fVom a nearby county. Let us all turn out and give him a neighborly greeting and a good audience. After the political meeting, which will not be lefigthy, there will be a dance in the same hall. A ^'eod orchestra is coming for this. •••MfMM liii y? b£tsfe*of'd Then the world was young, now it is old. Then it was concerned with milkmaids now it argues about the bolshiviki. As proof of its youth, we set down the lines of Sir Thomas Overbury. His little book "Characters" was an ancient forerunner of the "Haakon County Types." His milkmaid was a "faire damsel" who hath such fingers "that in milking a cow, it seemes that so sweet a milk-presse makes the milk the whiter, or sweeter." But the Haakon county milk maid is likely to be a recent ar rival from the fjords of Norway. Though not a subject for poetry, he is usually an agreeable fellow in his way, and answers to the name of Ole Johnson. He wears corduroys and cow-hide boots. He uses prodigious quantities of snuff and swears a* the cows a pro fanity all his own, when they do not "stand around." There is noth ing delicate about his 'milk-presse' and no one has ever suggested that it made the inilk "whiter or sweet er." Overbury has been these many years in his grave, and it would give him a distinct shock if he could come back and meet Ole, the Modern Milkmaid. Sir Thomas pays further tribute to the virtues of his milkmaid in the following fashion: "Her breath is her own, which scents all the yeare long of June, like a newmade haycock." We would not want to go so far as to say that Ole's breath is not his own, nor that it does not "sent all the year'long' a rod away, Dut it certainly does not smell "like a newmade haycock." It seems to us more closely akin to onions and tobacco. Again Overbury says most tend erly: "Thus lives she, and all her care is she may die in the spring time, to have store of flowers stucke upon her winding sheet." Ole Johnson does not mean to die iust yet awhile. At any rate he has not ordered the flowers for his "winding sheet." He is more con cerned in living a long while and in drawing his wages punctually If anyone has any flowers for him they can stick them in the bosom of his shirt here and now, that he may inhale their fragrance as -he goes about the cow-shed. It is possibly just as well that Old Sir Thomas is dead. Had he !ived on like Methuselah, he might like so many other people, have come to Haakon county to take up a homestead. In that event he might have met Ole, and he might have met him just at the moment when Ole was currying a cow with a milking stool. The scene and talk would have pained the old man much. It would have brush ed all the bloom and freshness off his ideas about milkmaids, because there is no bloom about Ole, and never was, and never will be. fion. TV wj^' &** ifn THE PIONEER-REVIEW CONTINUING THE PIONEER AND THE PHILIP WEEKLY REVIEW IIAAKON COUNTY TYPES. (The Modern Milkmaid) Times change. As Artemus Ward was ever saying "It's a way time has." The world of today is not the world of y'esterday. For one thing, the world finds new ways of doing its work, and humanity is certainly always funding new ways of amusing itself. And just as certainly there is not as much poetry in the world as there was once By way of making our point, we rise to inquire what has be come of the airy, fairy creature of the poets fancy commonly called the milkmaid? When Greene and Old Kit Marlowe sang and Sir Francis Drake put out to sea, the English milkmaid wandered with grace and lovliness through the fragrant hay-fields. But her foot steps seem -to have lead her entire ly out of the world. At any rate there are none of her kind here in Haakon county, formerly a part of Stanley,, in the State of South Da kota. Philip, Haakon County, South Dakota, Thursday, October 7,1920 /f LEAD AND DEAWOOB LOSE IN POPULATION It hai been generally known that Lead and Deadwood were falling behind in a businoess and finan cial way and were losing popula- but no one was .quite prepar ed for the figures that have just been announced in Washington.

PARCAUT-LUTHER MATCH AT PtUJLIP, OCTOBER 9th, TO BE A GOOD ONE In thb coming match between Ralph Tarpaut, WorTTs Middle weight Champion Wrestler and Walter Lutner of Mason City, Neh. there is sure to be plenty of act ion for Luiher has had over twice the experience that the Champion has had and with his agressivent ss and speed may bewilder the Title holder to iuch an extent that th» winner of the bout will be HE TALKED TOO MUCH. We have said before in t&esc columns that Mark Twain was o of the world's truly great philso phers. Not much of this hur.'nn life escaped his critical gaze. And what he saw he illmuinated with a story. His tale of the preacher wno talked too long is not without its point at this season of the year when leather lunged politicians of both parties are rushing up and down the land telling the rest of us how to vote. "The pastor was the most elo quent orator I ever listened too' said Mark. "He painted the be nighted conditioin of the heathen so clearly that my deepest com passion was aroused and I resolved to break a lifelong habit and con tribute a dollar to teach the gos pel. As the speaker continued I decided to give five dollars and then ten. Finally, I knew it would be my duty to give all the cash I had with me—$20. The pleadings of the orator wrought upon me still further and I decided to bor row $20 from my friend in the next pew and give that also. "That was the time to take up the col lection. "However the speaker pro ceeded he talked so long I grad ually lost interest and dropped off into sweet slumber. When the usher awoke me by prodding me in the ribs with the collection plate, I not only refused to contri bute, but I am ashamed to relate I stole fifteen plate." cents from GOING TRY THEM TO MORROW in doubt ilntil the final fall. Walter Luther is the Champion Midd! weight wrestler of South Dakota and up to four years ago held the title in the same weight for tin Dominion of Canada. He has nevt tasted defeat at the hands -f another' wrestler his weight and It has been difficult for him to get matches with wrestlers because his reputation thereby forcing n into a sort of retirement from with almost lightning like spee.l Philip is to tie congratulated on being able to stage a Champion ship match und there is every reason to believe that South Dak ota stands a very good chance of annexing the title. Parcaut has been going through hard con sistant training for this bout and his Manag-^j Mr. J. A. Heng of Spencer, Iowa tried to get the match postponed until a later date thinking he might be able to get in better shaie, but after seeing how Parcaut handles his trainers and with the new holds he has de veloped since his match with Mey ers ^Cjncajgo, says that Parcaut is now shape to put up the match of his life and can see noth ing but victory for his man. With the Title at stake this is sure to be a battle for blood and as Par caut was very reluctant about signing up for this match shows to the public with what high esteem he holds the South Dakota Champion. An undertaking of staging a match of this kind means lots of hard work and fore sight and Mr. Hal Wheaton de serves great credit and support for his effort. The match will be a treat that will be long talked off and remembered by those who are fortunate enough to secure seats to witness it, ajid it is suggested that those desiring to go take the precaution of securing heir seats early thereby avoiding disappoint ment r*?V4/?r£r#s POR FRESH BEEF POftKt MUTTON VEAL AND umbI SMOKED HEAT S4U MEAT I SAUSASEARONAH the game.
