The courts in this country are not
so slow as many critics would have us
believe. A man who took up a claim
in Kansas in 186(3 and whose right was
contested by a railroad company, lias
just got a decision from the supreme
court, declaring his title good. The
case has only taken 42 years.
While law enacting bodies In vari
ous parts of the states are seeking to
reduce the tolls of the railways, we
read that government roads in Bel
glum and Switzerland are facing
heavy deficits, and that govsrnment
exploitation of railroads 1s proving a
costly experimsnt. There's a moral.
What Is it?
The state legislature, which con
venes January 11, will have to act on
a two cent passenger rate bill. It is
expected that it will be among the
early bills introduced, and as both
the former progressives and stalwarts
are publicly committed to such a
measure, It will hardly meet with
active opposition. The only thing
that will delay It's enactment Is
the provision made two years ago
for the physical valuation of the
railways of the state, and work along
that line is now under way and still
far from completion.
He stood in a deep gorge of Itie
eloud-capped mountain, and in the
profound stillness of undisturbed and
original chaos, brooded over the sur
rounding scene. There was not a
breath to stir the ambient air, not
the twinkling of a rill, the twitter of a
bird, or the humming pipe of a single
Individual of the Insect tribe. At
that moment, his soul reverted to the
sweet girl to whom he had plighted
his troth and, under the dear influ
ence, he called aloud: "Oh, my ador
ed one, that thou wevt now here!"
and Echo answered, "Vel, Vot of It?"
By common consent the presidency
of the United Statee Is the most ex
alted office in the world. This is not
merely because the American people
are the greatest nation in the world,
nor because the president for the
time being dispenses more patronage
and wields more power than any
other ruler on earth, but it is mainly
because he owes his election to the
suffrages of a free people. This
makes his title to office superior to
that of any other ruler and gives to
the office Itself a dignity that does
not belong to the leadership of any
other government.
Since statehood South Dakota has
been the mecca of divorce-hunting
people by the hundreds. From all
parts of the country they have come,
attracted by our lenient laws, and it
Is not putting It too strong to say
that but a small percentage were
deserving cases. In their home
states the laws were too stringent,
would not stand for made to order
trials, nor encourage the divorce
mania. But the voters of ths state,
at the recent eleotion, exalted the re
putation of our state when they
voted in favor of an amendment to
the divorce law that makes longer
residence compulsory. They have
deetroyed the profit of many residents
of Sioux Falls,and some at other points
in the state, but have declared them
selves as protectors of the family and
home. They have blotted out a
source of shame to the state, and
show our people to be responsive to
good influences and animated with
better purp
At the last session of the state
legislature the matter of establishing
a state Immigration department came
up, but the only progress made was
to make the secretary of the board of
agriculture a land commissioner with
out salary of funds to expend for ad
vertising purposes. There will be
another concerted attempt made to
establish the department and endow
it with fund to work with, when this
winter's legislature meets. Neigh
boring states have like departments,
and are reaping great benefits from
them. By all meansthis state should
be in sharp competition witlv it
neighbors in that respect.

Philip Weekly Review
The Philip Livery
Established in June, 1907, the Philip Livery is one of the pioneer institutions
of our city. It is under the management of W. B. Jamison, a barn man with years
of experience to his credit. The barn has stall accommodations for twentyfive teams,
and a large corral where ample protection to the average range animal can be had.
The building has a metal roof, and the side walls are close and paper lined, and is
constructed in a way that appeals to the patrons of the establishment. Teams are
well provided for at all times. Plenty of good, bright hay is always on hand, other
feed can be had when desired, and in the corral is a windmill and tank, which sup
plies good water. We earnestly recommend the Philip Livery to those who consider
the comfort of horses as one of the important things to be looked after.
"Back to the Land."
Most wholesome indeed is this
trend of the times which is making
farm life so much more profitable and
so much less humdrum than it once
was. "Back to the land," is a cry
which is being widely taken up and
widely responded to. And the ex
planation is that there Is money in
farming—for where there is money,
there you will tind people tending.
The Manufacturers' Record figures
that while the people engaged in
agriculture in 1890 produced an aver
age of only I2H7 a year each, now
they are producing over 8600 each.
Why, the value of fkrm property in
this country has jumped from 12
billions to 28 billions in the last 27
years it has grown over a billion a
year for the last seven years. The
farmers have had a good deal to say
against the aggressions of the bank
ing interests, yet their farms are in
creasing in value every year more
than the total national banking
capital they have looked with jeal
oussy on the way the realroads have
expanded, yet their own increase of
assets for the last 14 years has been
enough tn buy out the railroads In
country down to the last spike.
Machinery is doing its part in the
saving of labor on the farm, and of
course there has been a general wave
of prosperity which has operated
peculiarly to the benefit of the farmer,
by greatly increasing the demand for
products, and accordingly increasing
prices. When all the manufacturing
and commercial activities of a coun
try are working to their utmost and
people are being brawn to the great
industral centers, a brisk demand for
all the products of the soil results,
and as the artisan population are all
at work and have the money to pay
for what they want, prices necessari
ly go up. Thus the last few years
have been the farmers' innings.
The stories they tell about Kansas,
"suffering Kansas," for instance, and
the way she has feathered her nest
during the prosperity era are aston
ing. Time was when every day
brought new complaints from the
Kansas farmers they were being
skinned by the railroads, the trusts
and the eastern capitalists. Now the
situation lias tetered the opposite
way Kansas has got the powers of
plutocracy and monopoly on the run,
and her farmers are lending their
money Instead of borrowing. One
congressman who has just been cam
paigning in that and other Western
states thinks that the farmers are be
ing hurt by prosperity and that they
are in turn becoming extravagant.
At a circus, he says, he saw a whole
acre of automobiles—for the very
farmers who a few years ago were
hopelessly in debt have now paid off
their mortgages and actually have
more money than they know what to
with. They are living in a state ot
luxury that is far beyond the reach
of the ordinary city-dweller. Corn
brlrgs almost as much as wheat,
and pork almost as much as beef, so
why shouldn't the farmers be living
on the fat of the land. It's time
they were allowed to
'get their feet
In the tough," as Roosevelt has put
it they've earned their prosperity
and no one should envy them it.
Croup Cured and a Child's Life Saved
"It affords me great pleasure to add
my (testimony tothat of the thousands
who have been benefited by Chamber
lain's Cough remedy. My child
Andrew when only three years old
was taken with a severe attaok of
croup, and thanks to the prompt use
of Chamberlain's Cough remedy his
life was saved and today lie is a ro
bust and healthy boy," says Mrs. A.
Coy Jr., of San Antonio, Texas. This
remedy has been In use for many
years. Thousands of mothers keep it
at hand, and it lias never been known
to fall. For sale by all druggists.

Mrs. Mary Dowling of No. 228 BMi

especially helpful in all forms of

Claiming to be connected with the
British peerage, M. O. Fitzmaurice
has been made the defendant in a
criminal libel suit at|Pomeroy, Wash.,
information to this effect lias reached
the state. Fitzmaurice also was
the principal in a sensational kidnapp
ing case, when officers from Washing
ton forcibly took him across the line
from Idaho to Washington.
After leaving South Dakota, Fitz
maurice became the editorof the Gar
field County Standard and the Colum
bia County Sentii.t'1, both printed at
Pouieroy. The v. arrant for his arrest
was sworn out by H. C. Benbow,
editor of the Columbia County Dh
palch, also published at l\m voy.
Fitzmaurice was arrested at Lewis
ton, Idaho, and persistently refused
to accompany the officers to the
Washington side of the line. Finally
be and the Washington officers got
into a fight, which resulted in Fitz
maurice being forcibly taken across
the Lewiston-Clarkston bridge to the
Washington side of the line. The
kidnapping was witnessed by several
hundred citizens of the two towns,
wliich are connected by the bridge,
many of whom denounce the action
as brutal. The authorities of Idaho
have since demandsd the punishment
of the officers Implicated.
Soon after appearing in South Da
kota, Fitzmaurice, who posed as a
clergyman, presented such credentials
as to cause his appointment to the
position of rector of the Episcopal
church at Chamberlain. Later
charges were perferred against him
and he was dismissed from the church.
This was about the time the Mil
waukee railroad company was con
structing Its line westward from
Chamberlain to the Black HIIIB, and
Fitzmaurice, who persisted In using
the title of "Rev.," drifted to Presho
and other new towns which sprang
up along the new railroad. He is
eccentric and it was not long until he
became involved in other difficulties.
Finally he turned up missing and the
next heard of him was & i'omts&y,
An Expensive Fortune.
recording a rich man's death
recently, the Milwankee Journal says
"lie made mllions in his ninety years
of life by never doing the usual
thing." These were some of the
things he never did: He never trav
eled. He never joined anything. lie
never paid for a ticket of admission.
He never ate in a hotel or restaurant.
His total expenditure for car fare was
less than 91. For forty years he liad
not voted. He wouldn't smoke, not
because it was harmful, but because
it cost him twelve cents a week. And
when he died he had amassed 11,500,
The man may have won a million
and a half, but he lost a heap of
other good things. Futher than
that, lie contributed neither to the
upbuilding of the nation nor the joy
of the world.
The man not only denied the world
and his fellow human beings of the
few jobs he could have given them,
but he denied himself all the legiti
mate pleasure which a generous pro
vidence placed within his reach.
His million and a half came mighty
high and his winning of It was a
game, not worth the candle.
It Isn't so difficult to strengthen a

error. "Go to the weak or ailing
nerves of these organs," said he.

"Let us not be vainglorious. While
the human nature Is endowed with
much that justifies the saying that
man is created in the image of his
Maker, we too often witness aete of

frenzy of the mob, the lawlessness
of the night-rider, on the one hand,
and the riotous living of many men

greatest danger to society. The sim

piety, the maintenance of the family

things that count far more vastly
than all our materal wealth.
