National Committeeman Makes
test to tlie President
Washington, May 23.—Thomas
Thorson. of Canton, member of the
republican national committee for
South Dakota, who has been here on
his way to Europe, called at the
White House, and protested against
the appointment of James I). Elliott
as federal judge for South Dakota.
It is expected that President Taft
will dispose of the Dakota judgeship
tomorrow. Senator Gamble still pro
fesses to be confident that Mr. Elliott
will be appointed.
Representative Martin left this
afternoon for St. Louis, and will go
thence to South Dakota for a Memor
ial day address at Hot Springs.
John Anderson, of Chamberlain,
S. I)., is here on business before the
postotlice and interior departments.
He is taking up with the postotlice

Whereas, Our Heavenly Father,
the (iiver of all good, has called to
his throne, the beloved mother of
our Sister, Eva Hood therefore,
be it resolved,
That our Chapter extend our
fraternal love, sympathy and sup
port to our sister and the mem
bers of her family in their tempo
rary loss. Temporary, because
like Martha, with her trustful
faith and hope of immortality, we
are inspired to believe that beyond
the grave, the loved ones are
waiting to welcome us to our
eternal home.
We grieve with you. Sister, and
may you bear your altlietion with
that ''heroic endurance as exem
plified in the life of Electa.
Cirieve not overmuch, though
Mother in her earthly form may
l*e gone, her Spirit ever hovers
over us and should be an inspira
tion to e mbracein our daily lives,
the abounding faith, courage and
virtues such as we know her to
have possessed.
We know that she is particularly
dear to you, but in her coronation
above, may your grief be less
poignant and may you be consoled
and faithful in the knowledge that
it was given unto her to live out a
long, useful, successful life, to be
graced in the end with the crown
of eternal life, rest and ieace.
While you will not cease to
mourn, remember the blessings
and the good that lie has still left
to you, and the "bitterness of your
cup*' will be sweetened and your
grief tempered.
Resolved, That these resolutions
be spread upon the minutes of our
Chapter and that copies be sent to
our bereaved Sister and to the
local papers for publication.

Mr. Oidtome la Reminded of Them by
Advertisement of Griddle for
Square Pancakes.
"1 find In a newspaper," said Mr.
Oldsome, "an advertisement of & grid
dle to cook square panscakes. I never
before heard of a squara pancake, but
I distinctly remember that in my
youth in my home we had square pies.
If you've heard of square pies for
heaven's sake choke me off right hert^
but if you haven't you might like to.
"Square pies were not exactly
square they were baked In straight
side oblong tins that were square
cornered. The pies baked in such tins
were always either pumpkin or cust
ard, never mince or apple or any sort
of pie with works that were chopped
or otherwise of such nature that they
would easily fall out when a piece oI
pie was lifted.
"These square ptes used to cut six
or eight pieces to the pie. You cut
first straight down the length of the
tin from end to end In the middle and
then you cut aero at equidistant
points either two or three times ao
cording to the number of pieces into
which you wanted to cut the pie.
"This gave you either six or eight
pieces in a pie, according to the num
ber of crosscuts you made, the pieces
being each square and all of approxi
mately the same size, exactly so if the
cutting wn« done accurately, as from
long practice it was likely to be. But
obviously the corner pieces had twice
as much crust as the inside pieces.
This, however, was not a disadvant
age, for some people like more tilling,
some like more crust. I always used
to ask for a corner piece."
The Trees
to Bow to the
Emperor. Said
the Great
German Poet.
There came a day also when the
young Heine saw Napoleon: "It was
In the avenue of the palace garden at
Du sseldorf. As I thrust my way
through the throng I thought of the
deeds and the battles which M. Le
Grand had drummed to me, and my
heart beat the march of the general—
and yet at the same time I thought of
the police order prohibiting riding
through the avenue, penalty five shil
lings—and the emperor with his suite
rode down the middle of the avenue,
and the scared trees bowed as he
passed and the sunbeams trembled In
fear and curiosity through the green
leaves, and in the blue heavens there
swam visibly a gold star.
'The emperor was wearing his mod
est green uniform and his little cock
ed hat known the world over. He was
riding a little white horse that paced
so calmly, so proudly, so securely and
with such an air. Listlessly sat
the emperor, almost loosely, and one
hand held high the rein and the other
tapped gently on the neck of the little
horse. The emperor rode calm
ly down the middle of the avenue.
No agent of the police opposed him
behind him proudly rode his followers
on foaming steeds and they were lad
en with gold and adornments the
drums rattled, the trumpets blared,
and with a thousand voices the people
cried: 'Long live the emperor!'

Uses of Corn.
Cxperts of the agricultural depart*
ment have figured It out that more
than thirty products are made from
corn, exclusive of whisky. Among
them are six kinds of glucose used in
table syrup manufacture four kinds
of crystal glucose used In candy ma
king corn oil. used in making fibre
paint and rubber substitutes granu
lated gum, alcohol, fusel oil, corn
meal. From the stalk are taken cellu
lose, for packing holes In battleships
pierced by bullets varnish, paper pulp
and live stock foods. And the humble
cob has its many uses. When ground
into corncob meal it aids digestion of
cattle it is used by the farmers for
corks and by everybody for pipes. It
has a high fuel value. Three tons of
cobs produce as much heat as one
ton of hard coal. Cob ashes fed to
hogs keeps them healthy, sod being
rich in potash cob ashes makes a
valuable fertilizer.—Kansas City Jour
Salt Cater*.
Idiosyncrasy often takes the form
of a special craving for, Instead of
an objection to, certain foods. Many
people possess an extraordinary
relish for common salt, and will eat
it by the teaspoonful when oppor
tunity admits. This sometimes leads
to obesity and dropsy, but It has also
the peculiar effect of Increasing the
weight. One young lady who devoured
Immense quantities of salt on every
possible occasion, and emptied all the
salt-cellars on the table at each meal,
would Increase as much as 10-lb. in
weight in twenty-four hours, and was
frequently unable to wear a dress
which was quite loose for her on the
previous day.

Colonel Aspen was a man who
could afford to have a hobby and he
did not deny himself. He was an
amateur organist of considerable abil
ity, but that alone does not define his
hobby. The peculiar feature of his
fad was his unquenchable desire to
play the organ and direct the musio
in a large and fashionable church.
Ijiirge and fashionable congrega
tions, as a rule, are not addicted to
amateur organists. In fact, anything
that may be obtained free of cost
does not appeal to them. It is as dis
tasteful for them to accept the serv
ices of an organist without making
the return of a good fat salary as it
would have been for Colonel Aspen to
take the pay of a professional.
Therefore, it wan not always an
easy matter for the colonel to indulge
his pretty fancy, and It required man
agement. Fortunately for him, he
could manage. In the course of long
experience, he had evolved a system
of dealing with those in charge of
church musical matters which made
It possible for him to expand his
hobby to its most gratifying extent.
His method was to contribute so
liberally to the support of the church
that no member of the congregation
oould find the courage to combat his
musical ambition. His generosity
gave him a sort of proprietorship, es
pecially when he went to the length
of putting in a new organ at his own
expense and was willing to employ
the most famous soloists without any
increase in the animal appropriation.
This is what he had done at St.
Judith's. So it was little wonder that
he shared so royally In the privilege
of upbuilding the plant that he felt
perfectly secure in his position of su
preme arbiter of matters musical. It
was a situation which would have
made the colonel entirely content with
the business of living had other things
been equal.
A most annoying thing had happen
ed quite recently, an episode which,
for the time being, took largely from
the sunny side of the colonel's exist
ence and left him disposed to pick
flaws with the whole scheme of crea
tion. His only child, a young fellow
fresh 'from college and a candidate
for post-graduate distinction, while
on a visit to England, had become
enamored of the daughter of a strug
gling rural vicar and had married her
without consulting either her father
or his own. He had cabled home for
the parental blessing and announced
iyh intention of beia^ ou hand to re
ceive It In person at a date which, as
yet, he had been unable to fix defi
The new arrangement did not ap
peal to the father, however. He was
altogether too sensible to quarrel
with his son over something which
was beyond recall, but he did not
feel equal to meeting him after his
sudden metamorphosis into the head
of a family. He cabled a sum of
money which muit have gone a long
way toward dullfhg the sting of the
young couple's disappointment, and
advised Alec and his bride to remain
in England until further notice.
But it had interfered seriously with
his capacity for enjoyment, and even
his unquestioned primacy In St. Ju
dith's organ Idft could not make
things seem right. The colonel real
ized, too, that his present mood was
having a very perceptible effect on
the music that Be could not abandon
himself to it with his customary
wholehearted noss. When he made
that discovery he decided to secure an
He advertised and arranged loir all
applicants—-there were dozons—to
come to the church on a certain night
and show their fitness. The colonel
had conceived a plan whereby the
trials might be made so brief as to
consume oDly a single evening. He
had a thaory that any musician who
could pity a hymn as it should be
played, from hi* viewpoint, needed no
further exploitation. He had, there
fore. selected the grand old choral at
tributed to Martin Luther as a com
mon test. One by one, the numerous
candidates took their turns In the
competition, but the colonel offered no
suggestion while the contest was go
ing on.
At last there remained only one
untried of all the anxious crowd. It
was getting late and most of the oth
ers had gone. This candidate had as
cended to the loft in obedience to the
colonel's beckoning invitation and was
climbing to the bench. She was a
slight, girlish creature, shy apparent
ly, and not at home in her present
surroundings. She was dressed very
modestly in a dark gown and the col
onel fan ied that she might be a for
eigner she had not spoken and he
recorded a mental wager that when
she did there would be a telltale ao
cent. As he put the open hymnal on
the rack he s&ld reassuringly:
"It isn't at all difficult to,read, you

Then she played it—played it so
understanding^ and so well that the
shade of the old reformer must havs
felt approval even though it had na
power to manifest it. Being mortal,
Colonel Aspen had no difficulty in ex
pressing his satisfaction.
"Won't you play something else fox
me?" he asked, with an Interest h*
takaa in none of the others. "Cg

you know any of the Bach preludes

the music."
"Don't take the trouble, sir. I
think I can do without," shj said,
and without further parley she began
to give out the theme of the great
fugue known popularly as "St. Ann's."
As she proceeded the colonel nas first
amazed, then delighted. The tech
nical difficulties of the composition
were as nothing to her. Her finger
work was admirable and her pedaling
was masterly. As the last great chord
of the third movement died away it
was only the fact that he was in a
plcuc of worship that restrained the
colonel from nolay approval. As it
was he said emphatically:
"You'll do, Miss He had never
heard her name.
"Viola," she supplied rather hesi
"It fits you beautifully, being the
name of one of the organ stops," he
Baid gallantly. "Viola—"
"Gamba," she said, quite faintly this
"Most remarkable! The name of
still another stop. You are certainly
a daughter of the noble instrument,"
he said.
At til'* she laughed a little and
he took refuge in the sale subject of
terms. Sho expressed herself as more
than satisfied with the salary ho of
fered her and they soparated, with
the understanding that she was to
play the prelude and postlude at the
Sunday morning service, leaving the
accompaniments to the colonel, who
had rehearsed them with the choir.
Th members of the congregation
of St Judith's were not, at that time,
in the habit of hearing the prelude.
Those who did hear it on the first
day of the new assistant organist's
incumbency were so outspoken In
their appreciation of it that on the
following Sunday the church was
well filled when the little woman
took her place on the bench and the
colonel seated himself beside her,
prepared to turn the music and man
ipulate ihe necessary combinations.
Tleslde the fact that Miss Gamba
was an excellent organist, the femi
nine contingent made two other dis
coveries—she was remarkably pretty
and the colonel Was deeply Interested
In her. Before the end of the first
quarter the organist and his assistant
were the most widely discussed per
sons in the parish.
The colonel w as a widower of many
years' standing. As was natural, most
of the women disapproved of Miss
Gamba Some of them were so
frank In their expression of the fact
that it was not possible for either of
the persons most interested to re
main in Ignorance of what was being
said of them. It annoyed the colonel
mightily, but did not seem to disturb
Miss Gamba In the least. Not only
did she appear to take no pains to
prevent goHtslft, but actually seemed,
to court publicity.
The climax came one night at a
mufi al affair in the church parlors.
Engaged as accompanist, Viola made
her appearance in a gown that
ar much admiration. Tho
coloi »d came in rather late and his
assistant did not attempt to hldo her

Mm that even the delighted colonel

playing a part, but It was delightful,
none the less.
