out and followed them, riding
each horse in turn and finally
perched itself on the head of one
of the party, where it seemed
quite content to ride. On their
return the pigeon stopped at its

an account of yourself, Sara. We

State Superintendent Lawrence
is back from a visit at Fort
Pierre and Philip. He attended
a school officers meeting at the
former place on. Monday night,
which did not have so many out
as usual on account of the very
cold weather. At Philip there was
an unusually large attendance,
and Mr. Lawrence was deeply im
pressed with the progressive and
hopeful spirit shown there. Not
a sign of discouragement was
manifest, and the meeting was
full of enthusiasm and the
spirit of enterprise. The teach
ers of the city gave a reception
after the meeting that was
delightful affair. The town has
an unusual amount of musical
talent for its size, and the high
sehool chorus and male quartet
and the city band contributed
some fine musie.—Pierre Da

Commissioner of Immigration Ha/
Traveled Over the State and
Finds Prospects for a Big
Crop Most Encouraging.
Pierre, S. D., March 20—John
D. Deets, state immigration com
missioner, has, during the past
three months, traveled extensi
vely in every part of South Da
kota, and has made it his busi
ness to find out conditions as
they actually are and he reports
that there is a very widespread
optimism among all classes con
cerning the future most people
regarding the partial crop fail
ure of last year as a case of
"darkest before dawn."
This good hope for the coming
season has been expressed in
many ways. Throughout the state
there promises to be the largest
area in crop ever sown. In the
trans-Missouri country, which wr
struck hardest by last year's
hot winds, the applications for
county distribution of seed grain
has amounted to thousands of
dollars in every county. Even
last fall thousands of acres of
winter wheat was put in, which
is reported to be in a most
flourishing condition and last
year many of those with faith in
the country continued to culti
vate their dry fields throughout
the summer, knowing that they
would be in better shape to har
bor the moisture when it came.
In some of the eastern counties
new drainage enterprises have
made ready for the intensified
cultivation of thousands of acres
of, wet lands. For instance, in th
the town, the clitch 'has*
structed at a cost of $31 per acre
assessed against the land drain
ed, a sum per acre much larger
than donding companies usually
will make bids for. This drain
age will increase the value of
the land from nil to $100 per acn
Irrigation has taken hold of
central South Dakota in a wond
erful manner and the coming
season will see at least 15,000
acres of new land under water
.iceompanying which will be the
establishment of pickle factories
ruid canneries. C. L. Millett, of
Fort Pierre, the pioneer in this
work, says that there are 200,
000 acres in Stanley and 100,000
in Hughes and Sully, which can
be irrigated.
In the four days, March 11 to
14, the state engineer's office
granted permits to irrigate 964
.47 acres from the Bad and Whit*
rivers to four different parties,
and this record is nothing unus
ual. The state will construct a
$100,000 building at Brookings
and one to cost $50,(XX) at Aber
deen. The S. & S. packing house
will begin the building of a mam
moth plant at Sioux Falls costing
ultimately over $1,000,000. There
a general construction of
smaller buildings.
In January the third state con
servation congress instilled the
gospel of state progress in many
and next week's "State Build
ers'" meeting at Aberdeen prom
ises to be a record breaker, with
predictions as to attendance run
ning as high as 2,000. Everything
points to the biggest year in the
state's history.
LaFollette's Real Friends
South Dakota Under In
structions Will Put up
Huron, 8. D., March 20.—Peti
tions are being circulated by the
state LaFollette organization
nominating a full list of dele
gates to the republican nationa
convention and the list will be
if itiij
filed with the secretary of state
when the legal requirements have
been complied with. A motto that
will not link the name of LaFol
lette with that of any other per
son will be adopted. These steps
are being taken in compliance
with the wish of Mr. LaFollette,
who telegraphed to the head
quarters here that he "could not
consent to any combination on
delegates or the printing of the
name of any \»ther presidential
candidates upon tickets or peti
tions" in connection with his
name. He took this position
from the start, in all the states,
and he asks his friends in South
Dakota to do what they can to
relieve him from the appearance
of inconsistency put upon hira by
the ticket and motto makers at
the recent conference at Sioux
Falls, who declared for "LaFol
lette and Roosevelt Principals."
A Lafollette representative will
visit all sections of the state mak
ing up the new delegat# ticket,
which will be duly filed.
Meistersingers, Last Number of
Lecture Course, Will Sing
April 1st
The Meistersingers, a quartet
of young men, will appear at the
Grand opera house Monday even
ing April 1st, as the last num
ber of the lecture course. The
members of the quartet are all
singers of more than ordinary
ability, and have won hign
praise from
and public
vherever they have appeared.
The program will be a rich and
aried one, and the price of ad
mission to those who do not

Daily Record, of Siloarn Springs,
Ark., says of the quartet::
There is not a dull moment
or an uninteresting number in
the entire program of two hours.
It has been a long time since Si
loam Springs had anything in the
ine that equaled the Meister
singers. Their quartet work was
superb, no matter whether it was
in comic, pathetic or sacred musi(

"Mike" for State Treasurer
At a meeting of the state cen
tral committee of the democratic
party at Mitchell a few days
igo, it was decided to put a full
state ticket into the field. Prob
able candidates were suggested,
among them being Anderson Miel
el, cashier of the Bank of Philip,
lor state treasurer.
This action probably comes as
complete surprise to the local
man. It has been necessary in
recent years for the candidates
of that party to have the honor
thrust upon them, a case of th
ffice seeking the man. In this
instance the office is certainly
pursuing the right man, if
must have a democrat.
Wfeole No. 254.
From the Canton News
Prof. Neils E. Hansen, of
Brookings, the alfalfa expert, has
promulgated in a recent bulletin
what he calls his "Alfalfa Plat*
form" as follows:
1. Hardiness against severe
cold is a question of heredity. N(
perfectly hardy alfalfa has ever
oeen developed in the mild cli
mate of southern Europe or
southern Asia.
2. The "acclimatization of a
tender alfalfa is a myth. Accli
matization is a sieve that sifts
out less hardy strains, but it
does not put into the sieve any
thing not there in the first place.
3. To develop a hardy strain
of alfalfa from a plant coming to
us from a mild climate is a ten
thousand year job. Hence it is
for nature, not man, to do such
4. We can get our perfectly
hardy alfalfa only from climates
similar to our own in extremes of
winter cold. In other words, ac
climation (nature's work), is
5. This platform embodies w&
alfalfa philosophy, formulated
after two and onehalf years of
travels in many lands, on four
continents and around the world
it is so radical a philosophy that
I do not expect people in gener
al to agree with me at present
But those disagreeing with these
views can not name a single fully
hardy variety developed fron
the old alfalfa.
To the foregoing platfoflil
Professor Hansen adds: My pre
sent belief is: (1) That we can
make a perfect suocess of alfalfa
udKuw,:- vn»rt, of South
alfalfas will be proof against win
ter-killing (3) That some of
these alfalfas can be introduced
as wild pasture plants on stony,
rolling land too rough for culti
utioii, thus adding greatly to
their present carrying capacity
Lor stock.
Please remember: Land that
an raise good alfalfa is worth
$100, and more, per acre. Is it
not worth while to make a strenu
ous effort to get our alfalfa cul
ture on a safe foundation? With
all loss from periodical and par
tial winter seed can be made an
important industry, since the
plant seeds better in regions like
the western Dakotas than in
those of great rainfall.

Assessor "Hollers"
Pierre, March 20.—The assessot
of unorganized territory in the
southern part of the state inti
mates to the state auditor that
unless he can get his pay more
promptly he will let such assess

His attention has been called to

2224 of the laws of this Btate
for failure of an official to carry
out the duties impoesd upon him
