The real damage from the recent
hail storm is not nearly so great
as at first supposed. The loss to
corn is comparatively nothing.
Corn that was beaten to the
ground is now so large that you
would never know it was damaged.
A large number of the pieces of
small grain have ahnost entirely
recovered and only in cases of
very early grain was the damage
at all serious. The damage to

The Anti Treating Law
Some of the papers over the
state claim that the anti-treating
law is being enforced. So far as
we can see the situation is not
much changed. The saloons have
in most instances complied with
their part of the law, which is to
post up the signs reading "Public
Treating is Forbidden by Law."

BUSINESS MEN HOLD BIG MEETING
"usiness Men's Association Consider Important
Matters-Plan to Make Philip a Registra
tion Point-The Coming Central
Stanley County Fair
The Philip Business Men's association iaspecial session Mon
day evening. It was a meeting mafketl by the large amount of im
portant business transacted.
Chiel among the topics U| for consideration was the coming open
ing of the Cheyenne reservation at the possibility that Philip might
be named as a registration point for the opening. The town already
has an application on lile in the General Land Office at Washington,
and ways and means of pushing our claims were discussed at length.
The whole matter was referred to a special committee composed of C.
A. Bennett, J. I). Rainey and A. Prewitt- The matter is to be
taken up with the Northwestern railroad, and if possible the attitude
of that company learned. Later, if it .should be deemed necessary, a
committee will be sent to Washington.
^Those in charge of the fair association reported that all the stock
was practically subscribed and that every arrangement possible at this
date had been made to hold the biggest and best fair in the history of
the county. The directors ol' the association will hold a meeting this
week. The dates selected for the fair are September 7, 8,9 inclusive.
The ever present problem of better roads came up for considera
tion, and various committees were able to report progress. There is
a tendency to indulge in criticism in this direction, but it is quite, like,
ly that officials are doing everything they possibly can. Gradually
progress is being made in this direction.
Other less important topics came up for consideration and were
disposed of in one way and another. It was an active meeting well
attended by a large number of business men. The spirit evident was
the same that has made Philip the best town on the railroad "between
Midland and the experiment farm.''
law and if it is approved by the
latter, body, wholesale prosecu
tions will be brought all over the
state1, if necessary, to give force
and effect to the enactment, which
has the sanction of Governor
Vessey, who championed the law
while in the seriate two years ago
previous to its enactment.
Midland Man Objects to Corsets
Yesterday morning the family
by the name of Wood, who have
for some time been running the
"Tin Can" restaurant got into a
little controversy which has ended
in breaking up a happy
Tl^e difficulty arose, as we are in
formed, over Mrs. Wood wearing
a corset Wood claimed that tin
wearing of a corset was injurious
to health and ordered his wife to
take that garment off. She re
fused and started out of the room,
when Wood made a slash at the
offending garment with a sharp
knife. The blade cut through,
not only the outer clothing an
corset, but bit into the flesh, in
flicting a wound several inches in
length in the woman's back. Dr.
Minard was called to repaii the
damages. He found the injury to
be of a not very serious nature,
although it had bled profusely.
Constable Calhoon arrested Wood
and placed him in the bastile, re
lieving him of the knife with
which the mischief was done. It
is a clasp knife with a long blade
and very sharp—an ugly weanon.
He took his prisoner to For|
Pierre on the afternoon train,
where a preliminary examination
will be held before Justice Mc
Guire today. Mrs. Wood and
her two children left on yesterday
afternoon's stage for Stamford,
with the intention, so we are in
formed, of going to Sioux City.
Constable Calhoon returned from
Fort Pierre on the early morning
train, and is subpoenaing witnesses
for the preliminary hearing.—
When You Meet an Automobile
Lately there has been consider
ably complaint against auto driv-»
ei's. Horses have been frightened,
and their diivers have been cor
respondingly wrathful. There is
a tendency to blame the man in
the auto unjustly for trouble with
horses, l^or there is a single rule
of the road, which, if observed,
would obviate most of the difficul
ties in this direction.
When you meet an auto, if
that is easily- fright
ened, simply hold up your hand
palm toward the autoist. This
signal means "Stop," and will .not
lie disregarded by anyone

law that governs the auto world.
It is only fair that the signal
should be given, if the horseman

ish to stop if the horses are not
likely to become frightened at his
machine. If there is danger of an
accident, and the customary signal
is given, the machine wdl be
stopoed. Anyway if the signal is
given and the machine is not
stopped, the legal consequences
are upon the driver. Give the
signal before the machine is upon
you. Kor the mere act ol stopping
close along side a frightened horse
is likely to cause more trouble
than running by at high speed.
