The tendency of the American peo ple to boom a good thing to the limit, or, rather, to tun a good thing to death, Is well brought out in the matter of her stupendous expositions, past, pres ent, and prospective. Inasmuch aB this tendency is an out growth of American push, energy, and ability to- oncompass objects of stag gering magnitude, usually with a cred itable degree of success, it is perhaps not a thing to be censured but at the same time one can not but notice, With §p anrprise at first, the calmness, nonchal and matter of fact way with Which a people contemplates the ex position at St. Itouis. )Ph purely, the world do .move.* a century ago, or even Bince, it had be^n contended that there conld be projected in America an institution which would bring together in peace, hAmony and splendor the peoples aud products of every nation and clime, the idea would have been scoffed at. it had been asserted that an fhsti tution of' such a fabulous wealth of ..•••.-.v. Cy'' wonder eoiiid be built every five or ten years, the suggestion would have beset treated lightly. If it had been said tliat the people of :ihis commonwealth would ever become so accustomed to the sight of and asso ciation with the opulence of the world, all the wealth and wonders that omni potence or mind of man could produce, that,-they would favor it with little tnor^ than passing Consideration, it is doubtt'ttl i|.the prophet would have es caped the lunatic asvlurn. Yet herf we have an example^ of a thoroughly fed,' thoroughly satisfied people, languid and torpid after their gormandizing of the past, looking upon tbfa Wonder ot the'Ceutury (if, indeed, •tbsjrgive it any sonslderrtion at all) as matter off act thing, or merely as an toeldeht which has rolled around with tbs whirligig of time, and which is nothing more than they as |ov|jeign P*®P'e a tight to expect. Only a decade ago the gates of the exposition were' thrown amaze taent, inj, nnspeakabl^wonderment.

Ht The St. Louis exposition will' be a success. Americans to not engage in projects that are not successes or, rather, they make successes of all tliey undertake. South Dakota, people will be there as will tlie people from every other section. But the fact remains that the American people will not be •amazed, awed, or disconcerted by the idea of a little thing like a condensed world at St. Louis. The world do move. WHO GKTS THE JUDGESHIP? The big convention at Sioiix Falls did not quite clear up the preliminaries in the republican party for this season, the circuit judge nominations being yet to be made. In the sixth circuit of which Hughes county is "a part there is a chance for a lively skirmish among the candidates —in fact it is now on in a quiet but de termined way. The general under standing that this county which for several years has held the judgeship in the person of Hon. L. E. Gaffy, would not ask for further recognition at this time, has resulted in the coming forth of a number of good men from various parts of the circuit, each one with a promise of strong backing from his home delegation, although in most in stances the county conventions have not yet been held. Gunderson of Stanley is in the field with his delegation of three to start bis little boom let. Uoucher from the northern border of the circuit, McPher son county, will be entered with a sup porting delegation of seven and an ar gument that it is time the north should be recognized./ Burr of Walworth with a delegation of live. Bottum of Faulk is in with a delegation of six home sup porters and has the advantage of being located in the center of the circuit, while Hand county with the largest number of delegates of any of the eleven counties in the circuit, eight, will work for the interests of her home man. Attorney Cole., This leaves the delegations from Campbell, Edmunds, Hughes, Hyde, Potter and Sully to be swung in favor of some candidate or candidates but who will swing them, or how. they will be divided, is yet a question. It is claimed that Gunderson of Stanley, through a dicker previous to the state convention by means of which Oraw ford^got the Stanley delegation, was, in return, to have the Hyde county dele gation of five at the judicial conven tion. It is claimed however that Gun derson broke faith with Hyde at the state convention by voting with the machine on every proposition except tfie direct question of governor. If this be the case, Hyde's natural inclina tian will be toward the Hand county man, Cols. ,In any event a combina tion of Stanley and Hyde with no prob ability of .further helpful, alliances, would be a small force to push candi date Gunderson through the conven tion. Hughes and Snily will probably work together in a brotherly manner in this matter, though just how or where their influence will go is undetermined. The most natural thing would be for them to throw their votes to some of the up country counties, but how to do this in ftp equitable martuer is as yet Unsettled. With the votes in the northern part of the circuit divided as they are, and with a candidate in the east, Hughes and Sully could arrange to hold the balance of power, but do they want it? A^tUvieion Of thetr^votes between Wal wotths Faulk. and McPherson is not an unbooked for thing. "iPhe convention at Highmorer June 2nd, can se.tthybbe n^atter with, its 61 delegates. AU SBOT TO PIECES," The bifjtange cattle busine^ 4s "all shottopiecea" in the weeterh half ot Wiwlfaer: it Is due to tlSl. eountry, m!siiai|&g« or o«h|H' jaooQomic causes, the l« fact* ana whether *Y large scale methods. But disaster or disaster it is a condition that must and call be laced as it has been in every section of the country that was in the path of progress. The evidence of this dilapidated con dition of the big cattle busiuess is found in the preiiafious financial con dition of a majority of the '.'cattle kings", whose supposed thousands would shrink to nothingness under the pressure that could be brought to bear if deemed advisable. jjg -r $ KCy It is reasonable to suppose that if it has become impossible to. longer make cattle raising in droves of thousands profitable it is for the reason that that branch of industry has been driven out by another and necessarily better occu pation ,,and looked.upon in this light, the gradual waning and ultimate dis appearance of the old time wild west industry'can not be contemplated with any regret except that which naturally follows separation from that to which one has become accustomed. With these big cattle holdings divid ed updnto multifarious smaller ones in thef possession of settlers and home builders there will be nothing left of the once big industry except the rom ance connected with it, and the memo ry of fortunes made before the spread ing population came to claim their share ol. Uncle Sam's domain. WHERE MONEY WILL COME FROM- 1 -"1^5 Those who are worried about the "extravegance,' of the South Dakota legislatures and are wondering where the money is coming from are evident ly not taking into consideration the taxable, property of the state is increas ing at a rate that makes it possible for larger revenues to come in and necess ary for larger expenditures to be made. At present, for iir,stance, the state auditor is receiving lists of lands to be placed upon the tax roll. From the Chamberlain district alone 510 final proofs were reported for the past year. This means that from that district the state will receive a share of the taxes from over 60,000 additional acres of land. The reports from the several other land oflices have not as yet. been received, but something of an estimate of what the' Pierre district will con tribute can* be made from the fact that nearly 5000 filings have been made since 1902. Proofs on these lands are being made constantly, and granting that all holders are anxious to prove up and receive title to their land as soon as possible, during this year 800,000 acres mote jf taxable land will be add ed to the roll from this source. Then there is the Rosebud with its 41*1,000 acres of rich land which has just been thrown open. With the rush that is being made after it no one can doubt that as soon sis the law will- per mit it will be made subject to taxation, and will be turning its portion into the state coffers. Realty values are everywhere going up and there is iittl&.probalility. of the state going broke. it is notable that in the despondency csueed by womanly diseases, there to many a suffering woman no way of «K»pe from pain except at tlfe price of life, itself. It would be sad to record nuch a ,story of strttsgle.and suffering ex cept for the fact that in such dire distress many a woman has found a way bock to health and happiness by theuueofDr. Kerce's Favor ite Prescription,' Th.eoneand only remedy for leucorrht*, female weak- oTfallFng^FS^ mmb, ao mhsi tatelf specific iifeoaring'diese common ailments of women, as to War rant fta mafcets in offering, to pay, they hereby do, the Bum of £500 reward fof a case of the above maladies which they cannot cure.
