MICKIE, THE PRINTER'S DEVIL
I Lately there has been a good deal of talk about taxes, ajid es fjecially about the Philip school flaxes. Of course, schools cost mon %y everywhere. They are the most Expensive item in the taxpayers ^rudens all ovqr the country, and education costs money in Philip and in Haakon county as flso where. The levy for the present ymr in Philip is high because the levy for last year was unreasonably low. This was due to the sudden and unexpected advance of wages and everything else that the local board pays? for. We submit below a list of levies for anumber of towns of the state. It will appear at a glance that Philip levy for the present year is above the aver age but for iast year it was far below the average. For the two years taken together the Philip levy is not unreasonably high. 1919 1920 valuation Aberdeen 16.5 U.9 $22,73.",.441 Belle Pche 11.9 23.1 1,981,452 Blunt 11.7 21.48 327,116 Brookings 11.94 17.07 4,524.208 Canton 16.06 25.

Burke Appointment Creates Favorable Comemnt Friendsjof Charles H. Burke in Haakon county will be pleased with the favorable coment created am ong: high standard independent !.journals everywhere. No appoint I ment of Harding administration has been received more favorably, The New Republic, an independ ent and progressive journal pub lished in New York City has the fololwing to say regarding the appointment: "By the appointment of Charles H. Burke of South Dakota, as commissioner of Indian Affairs, Mr. Fall went a long way to re deem this record. His choice should give great satisfaction to the friends of the Indian! The greater part of his seven terms in congress he was useful and liberal member of the house committee |on Indian affairs. In 1912 he made a vigorous fight on the floor of the house to protect the Oklahoma Indians 'from wholesale plunder ing in probate and other matters, Mr. Burke's apopintment foresha dows a clean, safe administration of Indian affairs.". The Springfield, Massachesuetts, Republican, independent and the vt'ry bulwark of solid conservative New England journalism, says ed itorially: "The appointment of Charles H. Burke of Pierre, South Dakota, as commissioner of Indian affairs seems to have been made purely as a matter of merit, and not as politics. The new adminis tration makes a good start with such appointments."

L. Ford, ex nsion agronomist at State Col ^e. "The common house fly may be nssed as one of the outlaws of e insect world," says Mr. Ford ot only because it is a nuisance it because of the active part it :iys in the spread of human dis ses, especially diseases of child n. "Fully 90 per cent of all the ral schools of South Dakota are »t equipped with window screens ie children in these schools are nstantly exposed to^swarms of es during the warmer months the school year. At the noon hour when the children's lunch boxes are opened, the flies are, as rule especially in evidence and is at this time that disease is •t to be spread through food ntamination.. "Rural school sanitation ia vast important. We owe oncoming nerations everything we can pos sihly give to insure them health and comfort.
