Wiltzy & Logan, who are operating the Blerwagen threshing machine in the Ilardlngrove country, report that they threshed some oats that yielded 45 bushels per acre and weighed 42 pounds to 1 he bushel, thus giving a yield by-..yveight of 5W bushels to the acre. The small grain in Stanley county is threshing out better than was anticipated. Presho makes an emphatic kick against the treatment accorded them during the Tripp county registration by the Milwaukee railroad. People who had purchased tickets for Presho were unable to get by Chamberlain for two days, on account of railroad accomodations, and many of them registered in Chamberlain in the meantime and went no farther west.

The provisions of the primary law tangled in Stanley county with the provisions of the general law in the matter of count y commissioners. The primary required the nomination of such officers by the primary in June, and the general law required a re apportionment of the commissioner districts of the county at the July meeting of the commissioners. The result is that one of the candidates nominated is left in a district of a different number, than that in which he was nominated, and even wcfrse for him within the boundaries of a district in which a hold over member lives. Others are tangled on numbers of the districts now living in districts of different number than that in which they were nominated. It is ,f'" likely that other counties of the state are somewhat tangled by the conflict $ lng laws, but Stanley is certainly in a snarl.—Pierre Capital Journal. v A pain prescription is printed upon each 25c box of Dr. Shoop's Pink 'Pain Tablets.

Morrison as candidate for commissioner from this the Fourth district, the republicans have made an excellent choice. See that you make a cross in front of his name on the ballot November 3rd. One of the current magazines asks, "Have you ever tried utilizing dis carded white shirt-waists for corset coers?"

The latest campaign emblem is the picture of a doughnut with the words, "Good Crops and Prosperity" circled around on the doughnut, and in the center, representing the hole are the words, "Business Depression."

The Chica go Live Stock World says "So serious has the drouth become in central Illinois that the Allon railroad has placed a water train in service, haul ing water to the important watering stations. Tliis is the first time such a measure has been necessary in eight years." George W. Egan. an attorney of Sioux Falls, has been disbarred by the supreme court from practicing in the courts of South Dakota. Egan did some crooked work in handling a case in Sioux Falls where the defend ant, his client, was feeble minded and unresponsible, and the citation of his conduct at that time showed hit u fitness to be a member of the state bar. He was candidate for -state's attorney of Minnehaha county. The following is called from Collier's Weekly :There are two socialisms, the religion and the party. The .brilliant socialist, H. Q.

Senator Chauncey M. I)epew is credited with the remark, "This is the golden age of politics." Chauncey must remember quite well the stone age of politics. The state democracy can't under stand why the defeated stalwart is now whooping 'er up for the republi can ticket. Why, because every man on the ticket is a republican, and be cause we all have vivid recollections of the last democratic administration. This is the time of the year when all men who are flaying the political game, or interested in the course it takes, are optimistic. There are men who say that Andy Lee Is sure to carry the state, and others that claim it is republican by 50,000. "It's a difference of opinion that makes horse races." Mr. Bryan has said that he would be satisfied with one term as presi dent, and that would be all he would want. But the democratic party has now got into such a habit of nominat ing 14m that It might go right on putting him up, in spite of his wants. And there's the danger. The decision of the June primaries was greatly in favor of the so-styled "insurgents." It was expected that the stalwarts would, in view of that fact, bolt the republican ticket, and give aid to the party's old time foe. But the stalwart is a stand patter by nature, and today he stands for the republican ticket, from top to bottom. No scratching goes on that side of the party. There has been a wonderful growth of state pride in the past ten years among South Dakotans. A decade ago a South Dakotan did not always care to reveal the place of his resi dence, but that is all changed now and in no locality is there more of loyality than here, but there is still room for improvement. There are some who have not yet learned that the best service of every citizen is due the state and that service thus expended will return many fold upon the investment, Healthy Family "Our whole family has enjoyed good health since we begin using Dr. Kingjs New Life Pills, three years ago," says L.

For Sale—Twenty head of early spring Hereford heifer calves at 113 a i head. John Malone, Hardingrove, S. XT PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, S. I).. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1«, 1908. R. M. WILLIAMS County Option in a Nutshell (Circular letter sent out for publication by the Ant4-9aloon League of South Dakota.) The saloon interests are having several display "ads" run in Stanley county papers asking voters to vote "no" on the county option question on Nov. 3rd. Read this .article before you vote. Our whiskey friends are endeavor ing to make out that the present county option bill, now before the electors of South Dakota, is really a question "for whiskey or against whiskey." But the farmers will be able to see through the ihin disguise that they are wearing and perceive that the measure beta the people at this stage is simply a legislative mea sure. The question is not whether it is right or wrong to license any of these gentlemen below, but the ques tion is shall the farmers have the right to determine the licensing of such men? if it is right to license a saloon it is right to run one, and if it is right to run saloons rumsellers should not be rejected by fraternities, barred from churches, and ostracized from good society. The actual attitude of the public represents a grievance rathg* than a prejudice. Public sentiment declares that It Is contrary to ethics and utility to legalize resorts which always and everywhere tend toward poverty, drunkenness and crime. If we license the saloon, why not license the brothel and gambling place? If vile places are sure to exist, why not regulate rather than exterminate them? Is it right to legalize a business which is so bad that courts brand it as a nuisance and laws make it libel ous to mistakenly publish that a per son is engaged in iiV Is it right to reduce taxes by selling a few persons monopolies to trade on the passions and vices of the poor and irresponsi ble? Licensing the liquor traffic increases drunkeness, as commitment statistics from Vermont and New Hampshire showed when tiieir prohibitory liquor laws were repealed. The same is shown wheu Massachusetts towns fluctuate between license and no-li cense. Maine has hardly one-third as many commitments for drunkenness as Massachusetts according ,to popu lation. License legalises and enlarges the resort, and, by gilding the vice of ip pling makes wrong pass for right. The illicit shop tends to make drinking disreputable. The licensed shop is usually an attractive place, while the unlicensed shop is repulsive, except to drunkards and undlscrimi natlng patrons. License fosters the vices of smok ing, swearing, obscenity, drinking, gambling, neglecting the family, and bribery, which especially flourish in connection with the traffic in alcoho lic beverages and its representative institution, the saloon. Drunkenness deprives the drinker of reason, injures his business, dis graces his family and wrongs society. Au Oriental legend says that once a wicked spirit gave a man his choice of evils—intoilctaioa, robbery and murder. He chose the first, thinking it least, but afterward 1m did both the others. Any man who is not Jtilllnc to have m*¥- •&" izT-'-f* the saloon judged by the whole people of the community at the the ballot box is a mighty poor speoimen of American citizen. The sooner such people are put undeiUhe limelight of "undesirable citizens" the better. Farmers, since you pay three fourths of the taxes, and you repre sent two-thirds of all the voters in the state, would you like to have a voice in the above proposition? If so, vote "yes" to the county option bill November 3. Methodist LaitleH Entertained One of the most enjoyable occasions of the season occurred Friday. Octo ber 9th, when the ladies aid society of the Methodist church met with Mesdames McGee and Molyneux. At ten o'clock a goodly number had gathered at the hall. After a beauti ful drive of nine miles we arrived at the pleasant home of Mrs. Mc Gee on North Fork. At half past twelve we were ushered into the dining room, a bower in its decorations of autumn leaves and berries, and seated at the table loaded with the good things these ladies know so well how to pre pare. The afternoon seemed to fly all too fast, and when, at a late hour, we started home, in the gathering twilight of that most beautiful autumn day, we were as one in our wish that we might come again. The next meeting of the aid will be in the evening, Friday, October 23rd, with Mesdames Kumm and Rainey at the home of the later, Every lady interested in the M. E. Church is Invited to attend. MKH. LINN, Secretary. Close to the Top. In the August Dacotah Magazine, Walter Edward Harris, of Washing ton, D. C., quotes some figures of which every loyal South Dakotan should be proud. They are all about South Dakota children and schools and money, and as he gets them from the national bureau of edu cation, their corrections cannot be questioned. From them the follow ing facts are evolved: Line up the forty-six states accord ing to the amount of money expend ed for educational purposes, based upon the taxable property of each, and South Dakota is found fifth from the top. The state of Washington heads the list by expending for her public schools .'*8.6 on each S100 of true valuation of all her taxable pro perty. Utah follows with 34 cents Massachusetts, 3 i.2 cents Calorado, 33 cents South Dakota taking fifth place with 32,9 cents. Ijtn't that climbing some? South Dakota's annual expendi turefor her public schools is 12,512, 818. She has more than 110,000child ren enrolled with an average yearly attendance of 104 days each. Mr. Harris says South Dakota schools are frequently discussed at the National Bureau of Education and the system is much admired for its effectiveness."

And these words have been set to music, and have been sung by nearly every settler in Lyman county for the last two years. "I might just as well have had twenty or forty eighty acres of fine, thirty or forty bushels to the acre corn, or three or four times as much oats or wheat or flax If I had just had the courage to plant or sow the seed." How will it be next year? E. L. Barber has about 80 acres in crops but he works. Harry Bickford raised sixty bushels of oats to the acre—more than enough to pay for the land on which they grew. For-* ty acres of oats like these with prevailing prices would have put nearly a thousand dollars in the bank. A. T. Wilson sold his oats at the machine for 50c a bushel. But Mr. Wilson gets up in the morning. There are lot of people about the country who are making a lot o( money this year, but there are a lot more who might have made several times more than they are making if they had only put in the crops.
