A newspaper subscriber once re
ceived a dun through the post office
and it made him mad. He went to
see the editor about it, and the editor
showed him a few duns of his own
one for paper, one for type, one for
fuel and several others. "Now," said
the editor, "I didn't get mad when
these came because I knew that all I
had to do was to ask several reliable
gentlemen like you to come in and
help me out, and then I could settle
them all." When the subscriber saw
how it was he relented, paid up and
renewed for another year. —Ex.
The women of South Dakota are
mostly quietly attending to the duties
of their homes and have little oppor
tunity except by petition and prayer
to show their interest in the suffrage
movement. But many women whose
work enable them to get out are ener
getically working in the field for the
amendment. Rev. Henrietta Lyman
whose family is now grown, Rose
Bower with her cornet, Mrs. Julius
Johnson, Mrs. Nina Pettigrew, Mrs.
Pliilena Johnson, Miss Ursin of Nor
way, besides Dr. Aylesworth, Dr.
Taylor and Mr. French, are a few of
those who have been working in the
state to convince the voters of the
reasonableness of suffrage for women.
Besides these a large force of women
are writing for their home papers and
doing all in their power to convince
men that women really want the

A new disease is spreading among
the cows of the county which has al
ready reached milkers in several town
ships. Our attention was called to the
disease tills week by Dr. L. P. Brew

effect the mouth more particularly,
though the first symptoms are shown
when the cow begins to go dry. Large
cankers form in the roof of the mouth
and back of the teeth below, and
gradually spreads until the entire
mouth is one large blister. The cow
cannot eat and soon begins to dry up.
In some instances th$se canker sotes
have appeared is the nose, but are
mostly confined to the mouth, just
