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
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.

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.
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
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?

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
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.

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

that in such dire
