"BUFF" RETURNED TO PRISON Will Serve Five Year Term at Sioux Falls for Grand Larceny '—Has Already Served OBI Five Year Term. Several weeks ago a valuable team ot' horses was stolen from a man who lives near Murdo. Sheriff Borcherding was at once notified of the theft, but was un able to accomplish the arrest of the .supposed guilty party until last week Friday, when William Oeorge, known as "Buffalo" George, was taken ituo custody south of Murdo. He was brought to Presho for a hearing, hut as some time was necessarily taken in securing witnesses, the hear ing was not held until Tuesday of this week.Several Indians were brought to town as witnesses for the state, the evidence against the accused being sufficient to bind him over to the circuit court a bond of $1000.00 being given for his release. For fear of a jail delivery, arm *d men were kept on guard of th city hastile every minute the aeeused man was kept a prison Philip Severin & Wheeler Heavy and Shelf Hardware O E V E V E S I I O N "Dependable goods, low priced all the time," is what our customers say It's about time to think of the ne«df in machinery for the haying and harvesting periods. See our line. J. G. Severin G. G. Wheeler er awaiting his hearing. As soon as he had been bound over and his bond arranged for, "Buffalo" George was taken in charge by the sheriff of Han son county, who was here with a bench warrant issued by Judge Smith. About five years ago Buf falo was tried in Hanson county on a grand larceny charge and was convicted on two different counts, his sentence being fixed a live years on each count. It seems there was some error made in the commitment papers and it the end of five years, with time off for good behavior, "Buffalo' was released from the peniten tiary. Instead of compelling him to serve the other five years at that time it was thought ad visable to let him go so long as l.e conducted himself at a law abiding citizen should. Upon hearing of his recent trouble, Judge Smith at once issued a bench warrant for George, afeid ht will be compelled to serve his other five year sentence. He Lis been out about nine months and we understand this will be taken off of the five years. As soon as his term is com pleted it is not at all unlikely that he will be taken again on A Good Place to Put up Your Team Sloermer's Livery and Feed Barn You can't miss the big sign, **Oua' Livery Barn,*' w#»t of Bank of Philip building on Railroad Street.

Bartow, of Presho, a meeting wes held at the court house in this city, Tuesday afternoon, for the pur pose of perfecting an organiza tion which will have for its pur pose the promotion of one of the givutest irrigation projects ever undertaken. This project proposes to tap the Missouri river near the mouth of the Yellowstone and bring, 4he water, through a large canal a cro.ua North Dakota and the coun ties of Corson, Ziebach, Dewey, Meade, Stanley and Lyman, in South Dakota. This water is to be used for irrigation purposes and for power faacilities. Mr. Deets gave a short talk in which he said that he was in for boosting any thing which would aid in the development of this great state and said that he would assist the promoters in any way possible. -After a lengthy discussion it was decided that a permanent or ganization be perfected and H. C. Bartow was elected president and Mr. Chamberlain secretary. Both these gentleman live at Presho. A motion was passed that a committee be appointed to gath er information relative to the feasibility of the project, both from a commercial and engineer ing standpoint. Messrs. Lea and Deets were to assist this commit tee in every way possible. A resolution committee was ap pointed which will formulate a set of resolutions and select a name for the organization. Com mittees on finance and other mat ters will be appointed later, all of which will report to a meeting to be called by the president at such time as he may see fit. This will be a government project, should it be undertaken, and in presenting the matter to the reclamation service and to congress it will be urged that, not only would this reclaim a vast amount of semiarid land, but it ivonld hold back and divert the vast amount of flood waters from the head of the Missouri and thus lessen the chances of floods and damagfe to the lower Mississippi bottoms. The south ern states will be enlisted in promoting the project, if possible. The undertaking will be a vast one and years will be consumed in its completion even should it ba undertaken, jfo survey has 25, The out of town people who were present at 1012. the meeting wer» State Engineer Lea, Immigration State Pol ley ,11.

Harry Robinson and Steve Travis, press correspon dents, and John Flanagan circuit court stenographer. Mr. Lea gave a short talk in which he said that the scheme was entirely practical from an engineering standpoint. A rough estimate being that it would take a ditch two hundred feet wide U carry the water, that two million acres could be irrigated and that the cost would be in the neighbor nood of eighty million dollras. Thu would mean practically fort} dollars an aere as the cost of put ting the water on the land bene fitted, which is not excessive as some of the western irrigation projects have cost as much as tiG'i.OO per aere.

Of course we oould Hot answer the question for in some one form or another it has been the problem of the ages.

Pope made a trite saying when he wrote the greatest study of mankind is man. Every man has a nature of hia own. peculiar to himself and he cannot change it lie can change habits, using |o* bacco and the like, but the real man is constituted in a certain way and it stays with him to the day of his death. One who is born a miser never can be a spendthnit and a man kind of heart by nature cannot become cruel. Napoleon could not re strain his ambition, and in his latest breath he murmured of the army. One man is born a poet, a statesman, a general or a philanthropist, others are born to be the children of Gideon for ever, and so it goes and after all when men are born with a nature that impelB them to go in a wrong direction they are to be pitied more than they are to be blamed, and there comes to us the never ceasing wail of all past generations that "The days of man are few and full of trou ble." *"maverick1 Hapjxjnings in County and State —Some items are rehashed, some (fiven credit where cred it is due, and some are swiped bodily.
