"BUFF" RETURNED TO PRISON Will Serve Five Year Term at Sioux Falls for Qr&nd Larceny •—Has Already Served One Five Year Term. Several weeks ago a valuable team of horses whs 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 George, known as "Buffalo" George, was taken itno custody south of Murdo. He was brought to Presho for a hearing, but 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 i men were kept on guard of th city bastile every minute the accused man was kept a prison State historical Snci«H Severin & Wheeler Heavy and Shelf Hardware O E V E Y 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 needv in machinery for the haying and harvesting periods.

As soon as he had been boond over and his bond arranged for, "Buffalo" George was taken in charge by the sheriff of Han won 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 five years on each count. It seems there was some error made in the commitment papers and at the end of five years, with tim« 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 lie conducted himself as a law abiding citizen should. Upon hearing of his recent trouble, .Judge Smith at once issued a heneh warrant for George, afeid h« will be compelled to serve his other five year sentence. He Las been out about nine months and we understand this will be taken off of the five years.

I I BARTOW IRRIGATION MEETING Meeting at Fort Pierre Tues day afternoon Was Well At tended and a Permanent Organ iiation Perfected. At the call of H. C. 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 greatest irrigation projects ever tui(lertakenf This projeet proposes to tap the Missouri river near the mouth of the Yellowstone and bring,4he water, through a large canal a cro.is North Dakota and the coun ties of Corson, Ziebach, Dewey, Meade, Stanley and Lyman, in South Dakota. This water is to he used for irrigation purposes and for power faacilities. The out of town people who were present at the meeting weri State Engineer Lea, Immigration State Policy,!!. 0. Bartow,Messrs. Chamberlain and Griffiths the latter of Presho, W. J. Mun three dt, of the South Dakota Messeng er, W. H. Burden, publisher of Our State, 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 stiraate beiua that it would take a ditch two hundred feet wide carry the water, that two million acres could be irrigated and that the cost would be in the neighbor nood of eighty million dollras. This would mean practically fort} dollars an acre 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 per aere. 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 any way possible, i After a lengthy discussion it was decided that a permanent or ganization be perfected and H. (Bartow was elected president and Mr. Chamberlain secretary. Both these gentlemen live at Presho. A motion was passed that a ommittee 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 bo 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, ami 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, hut it would hold back and divert the vast amount of flood waters from the head of the Missouri and thus lessen the chances of floods and damage to the lower Missiasippi bottoms. The south ern ststes will be enlisted in promoting the project, if possible. The undertaking will be a vast one sad years will be consumed in its eompletion even should it be VMkrtaken. No survey has as yet been made and an attempt will be made to have the govern ment make the preliminary sur vey.—Fort Pierre News.

Before going out he remarked, what a funny world this is, and asked wuy it is so many men are out side of the straight an# narrow path. Of course we coulft not answer the question for in some one form or another it haa been the problem of the ages. Let one be seated along the line of a public street in a city, say right in llighmore and observe the varied movements and char acteristics ol people as they go by and he wui find much profi table food for rei lection and if he ponders long enough he will drift at last into the startling soliloquy, "Vvnat shadows we are and what shadows we pursue." Pope made a trite saying when he wrote tiie greatest study of mankind is mui. Hi very man haa a nature of iiis own. peculiar to uimself and ne cannot change it lie can change habits, using to bacco and the like, but tiie real man is constituted in a certain way and it stays with hini to the day of his death. One who is born a miser never oan be a spcinithrilt 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 bora 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 impels 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 iew and full of trou ble."
