WALDKN, ASS'T CASH Philip Weekly Review The Review of RovMws of Stanley County" PHILIP, STANLKY COUNTY. 8. I). THl'USPAY, DKCKMBKK 2, !!»)!•. asserts that the house is ruled by the majority. He evident ly considers himself a good many. «It is taking Dr. Cook about as long to prepare his data to prove that he visited the north pole as it did for him to make the trip itself. New York recorded 4.(00 more births than deaths during the month of Septemlier. Evidently there is a lot of )oor people in the great city. The recent market report shows a shortage of turkeys. Yes, there are probably a good many short a head of what they were ten days ago. We can vouch for one at least. The conviction of Barnes, the horse thief, looks like about live columns of vindication to Bro. Mix, of the Fairplay. Mix is never so happy as when he is able to say, "I told you so." A great many jeople have been buried under the delusion that the electric chair was fatal, but a fe male doctor has arisen to the occa sion and announces that it is not. Praise be to a woman, we shall bury no more alive. Granville Jones, editor of the Alerdeen Democrat and counted as the one best bet of the state's democracy, has formed a partner ship with J. G. Maughan at Cham berlain, and will locate in that city in the practice of law. He will con tinue as editor of the Democrat. Jim Hill is kicking on the ex travagance of the average Amer ican citizen. If the matter were looked into we don't believe any of his section men would be found surrounded by extravagance. On the other hand his extravagance reaches so far that he wants to buy all the railroad* in the country. "Consistency thou art a jewel." Twas a very indiscreet more— that made by the state insurance department when it purchased a pair of bloodhounds. While they may be used occasionally for tracking criminals, they will be used more by the enemies of the present administration, who are bound to hold them, with Ustrud's buzz-wagon and camera, as a wan ton taste of the state's money. We are told by a state exchange that the old time western horse is passing. No where is it more no ticeable than in this section, where the slick blocky built cay use is now greatly outnumbered by the mules, crowbaits and most any kind of a "horse" that the itiner ant settler could pick up "back home," to ship out with the car containing his furniture for the claim. President Taft got his fill of being banqueted on his recent 18000 mile trip and took Thanks giving dinner surrounded by his family only. When the dinner was over, he remarked: kiThank good ness, I've had a dinner at which 1 hav'nt been compelled to make sieeches, and where reception committees lurked in the back ground. I've enjoyed food—real food—and I hav'nt had to work to get it." The Homestake mines at Lead, with its co-ordinate industries, have closed down indefinitely, and fully 2,800 men are out of employ ment, with little chance of getting in anywhere else. The lockout is a result of the attempt of the West ern Federation of Miners to dic tate the unionization of the mines. By the way, Hearst—the idol of the laboring men of the United States, is the main stockholder of the Homestake, but his yellow newspapers will continue their es tablished policies, which seem de cidedly inconsistent in the light of the Homestake affair. The framing of the primary law has made it necessary for the office-seeker to get into the pub licity columns of the newspapers, if he expects to realize his ambi- tion. Some of our statesmen have come to the conclusion that it is cheaper to own a newspaier than to buy space at so much per. So some new papers have I wen Iaunch ed, others purchased, and the cap "I" sorts enlarged. Shober has his Highmore Bulletin, Egan his American Republic, Basford his Red field Press, and Norleck a heavy bunch of stock in Senn's syndicate. Shober goes to Wash ington, Egan would like to lxi governor, Basford will without a doubt pass his plate again, and the Senn pa|ers would be glad to support Norbeck for lieutenant governor, "if he will consent to make the race." Tom Barnes, convicted in cir cuit court of complicity in stealing a bunch of horses from the east end of Stanley county and sentenc ed to serve two years and eleven months in the penitentiary, is still bent on making our officials "prove it." He has stood three trials at the exjHMise of the county, but is still not sure of his guilt and so is going to carry the case to the state supreme court. The LeBeau Phe nix, published in Barnes' home town, sa.vs"the apieal is now being prepared and friends of the accus ed feel confident that the verdict of the lower court will be reversed.' Barnes is about as easy to convince of the error of his ways at a Stan dard Oil magnate is. In the springing into existence of a new town there are always en thusiasts who advance the idea that their town is going to be a second Chicago or a second some other big city and present their arguments pro anil con and that is all they ever do accomplish, as a rule. But when like remarks come from disinterested persons, some not even residents of the state, it is worthy of sitting up and taking notice of. Hardly a day passes that some flattering prediction of Philip does not reach our ears of its future possibilities and probabili ties. One of the main reasons is for what it has already accomplished through its undivided efforts for the upbuilding of the town and the benefits offered to the surrounding community. It may sound queer to eastern l»eople who are confirmed in the belief that South Dakota is a land of drouth and hot winds that a drainage ditch has just been com pleted at a cast of $18,000. The ditch is located in Sanborn county and drains several thousand acres which for the last few years has been used for a duck pond. And this goes to prove the theory that cultivation is productive of mois ture. Several years ago before the section referred to was cultivated to any extent there was no duck [Hjnd nor any indications of there ever being any reason for the con struction of a drainage ditch, al though the land was Hat and heavy rains, which were few then, ponds were formed but only remained a short time. But as the country is cultivated, each year there has been more rainfall and the water has been accumulating there year after year until it has become necessary to provide the drainage which has just been accomplished. A common expression is that in vention and the installing of ma chineiy decreases the demand for labor. We believe that is a mis taken idea. Temporarily there are probably a few men out of em ployment through the placing of machinery which takes the place of hand work, but the product, whatever it is, is manufactured so much cheaper that there is a larger demand for the article and in time the men who were doing hand work are given employment run ning a machine. Not only that but labor then becomes skilled and de n ands better wages and usually shorter hours. With the coming of the automobile it was thought that the horse was doomed, but in stead horses are more in demand today than ever—that is good horses. The laboring man of today holds by far a better social position than he did twenty-five years ago. And it can all Ihj traced to the fact that he is now better educated and has time to take notice of things outside of the shop and factory. Let the inventor do his worst—or I est.

The Midland Mail now occupies a room iti the big new bank build ing. Ottumwa township has voted for the artesian well bonds, and is now on the market for a drill ing outfit. The construction of a building which will lie occupied by a bank after the first of the year ia well under way at Nowlin. The Reporter, the Senn paper at Kadoka, was deserted by its manager quite a few days ago, and it took several issues in a bunch to catch up. A man near Rapid City has broken the record for aged claim holders. He has just proved up at the end of two years restdeneeaiid is 101 years of age. The Fort Pierre Bank has been authorized to start doing business under the name of the Fort Pierre National Bank. Stanley county now has one national bank, eleven state banks and two other state banks are in process of organiza tion. Mrs. J. W. Un^r, living ten miles west of Hayes, met with a painful accident last Saturday. A horse she was riding became fractious and threw her. Her foot caught in the stirrup and she was dragged for some distance before becoming disentangled. She was brought to town as soon as i»ossi ble and Dr. Minard found u|»on examination that two Ixmes of the left foot were broken and that the ligimcnts of the ankle were bodl.v strained. It will probably be some time before she will be able to walk.—Midland Star. A Fantistic Electrical Mechanical Spectacular Scenic and Dramatic Portrayal I Since the pew owner of Ihe Stanley county Socialist at Wendte has given notice that the word Herald will fx substituted for Socialist in the title of that paper, it is interesting to note the im mense territory that Stanley county covers and the seeming imjHJssi bility of keeping away from con flict in names of the county paiers. Hopewell and Smith both had papers named the Settler, Fort Pierre, Nowlin and Philip each have their News and now Old Whole No. 184 Trail and Wendte will both become known as the home of the Stanley County Herald. Dry Farming So much has been said about dry farming and irrigation that it seems almost useless to keep harp ing upon the subject. But it is the very thing that we are most inter ested in and lest we forget, some things will stand repetition. W. H. Camptall, of Nebraska, known as the "Father of Dry Farming" makes the statement "that farm ing in the dry country will be in the near future easy farming, and it will be more profitable than any other. Two grand discoveries have been made: First, that less water is needed than our forefathers ha* supposed to grow7 a large crop. Second, that man by scientific til* lage cannot only double and trebli the present average, but can also guard against long droughty periods." Our creator has seen fit to ad just things pretty well, and thus iB the arid regions the same yield can be obtained as in a better wa tered country with much less rain fall. In most arid countries thert is a sort of a self conversation th* soil is of such a consistency thak when it is caltivated it not onljr holds but gathers moisture. It is fact though that in many partis there is not enough rainfall to prq*' duce the best crops. The govern* ment has taken cognizance of thft fact and are seeking to make up the deficiency through the expen diture of millions of dollars in ir~ ligation projects. One cannot coax a plum tree into growing apples, but one can nurse a poor plum tree into producing a better and larger quantity of plums. Just sit one can till and irragate a poor soil into an abundantly productive one. Best Lots in Philip Weekly or monthly pay* ments. NO INTEREST. $1.00 per week up. Call and I will explain E F.
