Interior Man Takes Wife to Insane Hospital in a Wagon. J. F. Six, of Int all that 1101 pmtip, Philip thought was neces siy when his wife went insane was to load her up in a rig and take her to Yank ton, which lie accordinigly did. He first went, by teairu, with his in sane passenger and wife to Sionx City, where the ravings of his wife barred her from a hospital. Six then returned to South Dakota, driving overland all the way. Arriving at Yankton he proceeded at once to the state hospital, ag da to he denied admittance, the Law requiring patients to be regularly committed by the county officers where they reside. Six, who is part Indian, was weary of his journeyings and appealed to the local lxmrd, which after some tele graphing to Stanley county, agreed to act for the Stanley county board of insanity and Mrs. Six was finally committed and placed in the hospital early this week after a journey of hundreds of miles.

The Philip ball team has item another splendid victory, and this time they have triumphed over one of the crack teams of the state. It all came ab^u^t tlio uig manner. When the Cfas Belt ISltfwwition management at Pierre was casting about for star attractions they hit upon a series of ball games. They wanted a snappy series and decided to bring together two of the best teams in this end of the state. Naturally they selected Sturgis, a team with an enviable lecord in the Black Hills League this year. Then it occurred to the capital city fans that it would be especially clever to bring this crack team of the Hills against the Philip team thereby insuring a fast game and the possibility of a defeat for the Philip team. A purse of three hundred dollars w|S offend and both teams accepted, Pierre settled back comfortably and waited, anticipating the en joyment of watching the down fall of the Philipians who had three times this season brought humiliat ing defeat to the Capital City nine. But the stars had ordained that Pierre was not to have her revenge. Not yet, but soon. Perhaps. The first game of the series was played Tuesday and resulted in a score of 7 to 3 in favor of Philip. Philip scored two home runs and struck out ten men. Sturgis struck out live men. Jorgenson's hatting was a feature of the game. The second game was played on Wednesday afternoon. Phis time Philip took the 3 and Sturgis cornered a handsome, but ordinary sized goose-egg. Several thousand Gas licit Exposition visitors wit nessed the game and pronounced it one of the best ball contests ever pulled off on a South Dakota dia mond. it was certainly a great game. The World at Large. The new Chicago charter pro posed by the last session of the Illinois legislature was defeated in the municipal election in that city Tuesday. Oklahoma went demo e a i Tuesday, the nominee carrying the state by 25,000 votes. The new constitution was adopted. Prohibition carried.

He has been rapidly failing for some time and can not recover. E. R. Lewis, of Endfield, Conn, is here visiting J. II. Searls and family. Dr. Shiltz and B. E. Trout, of Des Moines, arrived at Wokama Wednesday. This has been a week of proof days at United States Commission er Clow's office. Thirty-five or forty claimants have come in dur ing the week and offered evidence in support of their previously ad vertised intention to make com mutation or final five year proof. Proof day has lost something of its previous importance. At one time certain days were set by the land offices and proof taking in a large measure restricted to those parti cular days in each month. The large amount of work liefore Mr. Clow's office made necessary a change in this arrangement. Asa result the Pierre Land Office now allows proofs to be taken at any time, in many cases permitting the claimant to select his own date and restricting his choice only as may be necessary on account of the prescribed rules relating to ad vertising and offering proof. The Chamberlain office, though not so likeral in the latitude it has grant ed, now arranges the dates sq that proofs may be taken with greater convenience both to claimants and officials. NO. 29* J.
