There was no attempt to hold up the visitors,' aw some times happens. where the inhabi tants of a town are so eager to jar a visitor loose from his coin that they become a vulgar spectacle of discourtesy and inhospitality. On the contrary Pierre established a reputation for hospitality that will be long l'ciiiembercd by those who were strar.gers within her gates last wr'ek. Who says that the government's prosecution of the Standard Oil Company has not borne fruit. Tin ^29,tMK),0t)0 fine may never be col lected. Perhaps it will. At any rafje the capital stock of the Stand ard Oil has shrunk §80,000,000 in value since Judge Landis render ed his decision. Probably Stand ard Oil doesn't mind that. The sum represents nearly two years profits of the concern. The ordi nary business man doesn't like to see his investment shrink in value, until two years of' profits are swal lowed up. Standard Oil- very likely isn't an exception to that rule. Anyway Henry Rogers is reported to be dying as a result of the business strain he has- passed through in the last few months.

"Our county stood second in the state at the 'recent teachers* examination and best according to the number of manuscripts sent in.* Our es teemed Contemporary gives due and proper credit for this condi tion of educational affairs lis our efficient county superintendent and the intelligent corps of Uach ers working under her cliiecUon. Well and good, .• Ko one can dee higher pride in good schools than does the editor of the NEWS. He was a pedagogue in the old clays, and just missed getting a life sen tence to the little red school house •u the hill. Out of those years ne a healthy human sympathy for teachers and pupils in our common schools. From this ex perience and sympathy and some observation besides, we are led to remark that the present condition of our schools can be maintained only by a very considerable in crease in III© salaries paid our teachers. In some of the country districts about Philip the pay re ceived by the teacher may be meant as a salany or it may be that the board of directors has merely perpetrated a proctical jok©. Of course the conditions are Mi very favorable for high salaried teachers, u t'ordinary horse sense, respect for the teach er, and, if not that, common de cency toward "the kids'5 demands that a teacher should receive at least the wages of an ordinary, day laborer. et many a school in Stanley county will be taught dur ing the coming winter by some homesteader for wages that seem shamefully low even to a newspaper mail. Next year these districts will be in a position to do better, and every opportunity should be embraced that will raise the standard of our schools by raising the wages of our teachers. In performing his self assumed task of advisor in general to the homesteaders of Stanley ccunty, it becomes the writer's duty to olfer a fresh suggestion. Winter will be upon us in the course of a few months, and the homesteader who expects to spend the season upon his claim, will do well to prepare himself now for a little cold weather. For the benefit of those who have not spent a winter in this state, it may be well to sug gest that the ordinary frame shack on the bleak, wind-swept prairie is not quite as comfortable as a cosey corner near the steam reg ister in a city home. But a few days work in sodding the sides will make a shack fairly comfor table. True, a sod house has a rather ungainly, oncgallused ap pearance. but it is warm neverthe less. By nil means sod your house, if you expect to winter in it. You will then be able to warm it without warming your entire claim. Besides you will be warm and snug as the traditional bug. Then when spring comes you tear away the sod and have a summer home. The matter is worth while thinking about anyway. Cream Rates. In the Bad River News of Sept. 5 appeared a lemon editorial, in timating that the railroads of the state had handed the people a con signment of the citrus fruit by raising the cream cai rying rate 30 per cent. On September 10 .1 iff fir&'iitfCtlmfMit )i! 1 •j 1st day of September, I'.HI'I, i he editor of the Nmvs was taken task by the Generni Freight Agent of the P. If. ^n. & N. W.

At the time the article in quti-tion was written the local raid had no cream carrying rate. Necessarily the squib was aimed at the roads 'iieyond the river."
