Lull in Wool Market After Weeks of
Going Up
Belle Foaroh, South, Dakota, Marob
19.—"There is no doubt bat that the
market has experienced a lull in the
mad eoramble for wool wbioh has been
oonstantly pushing prioes upward dar
ing the past few weeks, The prices
have felt the effeot by remaining prac
tically stationary as compared with a
week ago, although it must be said that
there is by no means any weakness in
the situation, while, on the ether hand
the situation is hardly as strong as
some of the circulars whioh have re
cently been sent to the gr in the
west would indicate, at least not yet.
"Wool dealers are asking themselves
—and with no little anxiety—as to the
fatare possibilities in the market.
Contracting today on the sheeps' books
is admittedly dangerous business, but
the inclination to buy wool with plen
tiful money and bare lofts is very
strong. In some oases a little wool
has already been purchased in the west
at. ^-bet seems like extremely high
rates, but who shall say what is a high
jrioe today? All over the world, the
prioe for wool is still tending upward.
In Australia or in London, the situ
ation is the same, keen competition
and advanoing prices. American pur
chasers have been heavy abroad not
withstanding the faots that shipping is
very much interfeied with, especially
from Eagland, and that war risk in
surance and freight rates are higher,
while the question of licenses to make
shipments are not altogether settled
yet for the more recent purohases.
On March 15th the weekly meeting of

from the Britton Sentinel. Often times
there are incidents in a community
that a news paper will pass up whioh
the publio generally may think should
receive publicity in the columns of the
paper. All editors may make mistakes
and probably do, but likewise all ed
itors have situations to oonsider from
a point of view that the publio at the
moment do not oonsider, and this
artiole from the Britton paper very
aptly portrays a proposition whioh a
newspaper is confronted with on num
erous oocasions. The artiole is as
"This week we looked in a neighbor
ing paper, expeoting to 6ee an account
of bow a young man had gone wrong.
Not a line about the young man oould
be found. A broken hearted wife or
relative had gone to the editor and had
asked him to say nothing, and the edi
tor had listened and the tears bad won
the promise from him. We have gone
through the same thing ourselves maiiy
times. An editor is human. He has
his likes and bis dislikes be loves and
he hates his strength between love and
duty is just like that of an average citi
zen. We remember one oase in particu
lar. We had let a certain thing go by
beoaase a tearful mother bowod down
with grief had oome to as and begged
the favor. A big-headed man jumped
on as about it, and oalled us a coward
for doing so. A short time afterwards
the shadow fell aoross his threshold
and he oame running, and begging us
to say nothing, 'Yes.' we replied, 'bat.
don't you remember the time when you
oalled me a coward for keeping still?'
'I know,' be replied, 'but 1 was wrong
It 1b different now.' And we listened
to him. There are things that an edi
tor cannot suppress. There are other
things that be can forget with pro
priety. As far as we are oonoerned, we
would rather lessen the grief of a
parent than throw out amoral for the
gossiping publio to feed upon. We
would rather wipe away the tears from
the eyes of a mother than to 'have
nerve' enough to join the heartless
orowd of fiyin^tongues and sink the
iron deeper into her tender soul, So
when in this neighboring paper we fail
ed to find what we wanted, we made no
comment. But down deep in our heart
we admired that editor and thought
more of him beoaase he bad a heart
that was tender aDd he would rather
listen to the jibes of an unfeeling pub

Colonel James A. Matteson, gover
nor and chief sargon of the Battle
Mountain Sanitarium, reoeived official
notification the first of the week to the
effeot that the annual appropriation
for the maintalnanoe of the National
Home had passed before congress ad
journed and that the sum allowed this
year would be $167,500 with a deficiency
appropriation of $3,800 whioh was also
allowed, this being due to the rise in
prioe during last year of many staple
This cum is larger than any previous
appropriation for like purpose but is
due to two things. First to the ad
vanced prioe of food produots aud
seoond to the large enrollment at the
Sanitarium, For the past year this
large Institution has been taxed to its
fullest oapaoity praotioally all the
time with an average enrollment of
about four hundred and fifty, In the
neighborhood of four hundred and
thirty are now enrolled.
Cllmatio conditions, the waters and
the first-olass corps of dootors, sur
geons and narses make this the ideal
spot in the United States for the vet
erans to oome for oures. And that a
large percentage of oures are effected
is evidenced by the increasing number
that ask for admittance.
H. C. Moorehouse and R. M. AIMrtson Buy
Store at Malvern, Iowa
The following artiole is dipped from
the Malvern, (Iowa,) Leader of last

well known Hot Springs young men,

S. E. Crans, of Lead, to Have Opposition For
Pioneer Times: It appears that S.
E. Orans, of Lead, will have opposition
in bis quest for re-appolntment to the
offloe of state fire tr.arshal. It is said
that George Fallon of the same place Is
oat for offloe and his baoklng which
will entitle his application to consider
ation. Fallon was the progressive rep
resentative from Lawrenoe ooanty to
the Pierre convention last year ander
the RlohardB primary law, bat did not
go and Neal Hall, the stalwart repre
sentative was seated. It is understood
that for oertain services rendered at
the time, Fallon was promised support
in his fat are political aspirations and
that he has chosen to ask for appoint
ment to the offloe of state fire marshal,
Dear friends, ah here I am at last,
As yoaVe perhaps prodioted,
And raoked by all the horrid blasts,
That ever were inflioted.
I stay indoors, perforoe of laws,
My appetite is slack,
I'm worried half to death because
My jawfc. refuse to traok.
I hate to miss Commercial .Law,
Bat what can I expeot?
For laws are laws, and jaws are jaws.
And mumps are mumps, by heok.
It sorely is a heavy tag,
With whioh I now am hampered,
To sit here with inflated mag.
And wrestle with distemper,
And yet, I really do not know,
As I have anght to say,
For J»d4t oome two weeks ago,
Instead of yesterday,
A pretty mess would 1 have foand,
In every dental ourve,
To have my molars loaded down,
With staff to kill the nerve.
A pleasant feeling, 1 am sure.
Had fallen to my tot,
To have them stuffed with dope to care
Them of deoay and rot.
Had that been trne, it might be due,
To look on life with gramps,
But now, I guesB all I can do,
Is grin, and bear the mumps.
And after all, the thing to do,
Is smile, when times are trying,
For happiness will still live through,
When grouch and
are dying.
If aii would wear a smiling faoe,
In troubled, trying times,
This world would be abetter place,
For men to live in. Kime.
