I I if M4!% S iEADEOTHIS WAY ^he Great Northern is Said to be Getting Ready for a Pierre Extension. 2ol. Harry Hunter Gives Out an In terview That May Prove Interesting. Aberdeen News: H. b\ Hunter of he 0. M. & St. V. railway, WHS in Aiier een Monday night on his way to Chamberlain from his big eattle ranch in Campbell county. Mr. Hunter, as is well known, has done all of the pre liminary work in securing right of way and the like for every extension the Milwaukee has made since he has been connected with the road, lie has been the advance guard of the road and is thoroughly in touch with all of the company's plans. "Fortheiirst time in my life," Mr. Hunter said, "I am going to submit to a newspaper interview and will tell the News all I know about the railroad situation. In the (irst place, (he Mil waukee feels very friendly toward South Dakota because of the fair and conservative attitude this state taken toward railroads in general our road in particular. While the loads are made the butts of politics in other states—in Wisconsin, for instance the the people of ou th Dakota have an corded us the same general good treat ment that they have extended to all'.' other business interests of the state, believe it is largely for this reason that the Milwaukee has decided to ex- j' tei its South Dakota lines in prefer-J ence to making extensions in other states that in other respects oiler good I advantages in the way of bu-iness. "Yes, you may tell the readers of the News that if the Milwaukee ex tends to the coast, 1 believe t'»e main, coast line will he built from lOvarts. TheChamberlain extension into Lyman county is not meant for a coast line. We are building it now because that county is well settled, rich and in need I of railroad facilities. Just how far west this line will go eventually I can not say at this time. It may strike through to Rapid City, or it may skirt the foot hills, pretty well to the e.tst and tap the Helle Fourche irrigation country, running north until it con. nects with the rumored line running west from Kvarts, I am not prepared to say just what will be done in detail in this diiection. At present the sur vey is completed only a short distance west of the Lyman county line. The survey was made several years ago and it is likely that this old survey .will lie followed in the main. The bridge will cross the Missouri at Chamberlain practically as stated in the News on Monday night, making use of Ameri can Island to reduce expense and eng ineering dilliculties. "I would not be surprised if the road would start west from Evnrts, bound for the coast, as soon as the reservation west of the river is thrown open to settlement. Just now, with no popu lation in that stretch of territory, al though it is a fine farming country, we would have to run our road for too great distance without the aid of local traffic. "You need not be surprised to hear almost any day of other extensions that will be undertaken by the Milwau kee in this state and that will now be of direct benefit to Aberdeen. Just now I am not at liberty to say just what is contemplated, but the matter For over a third of a century Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has sold more largely than any other blood purifier ot stomach tonic. Bigger sales to day than ever be fore. Is that not the true test Cures oth ers, why not you? and nervous force is used when you take an alterative extract of herbs and roots, without the use of alcohol, like Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This vegetable medicine coaxes the digestive functions and helps in the assimilation of food, or rather takes from the food just the nutri ment the blood requires. v. Dr. PieroC's Golden Medical Discovery ,'.'i purifies the blood and entirely eradicates A the poisons that breed and feed disease. It thus cures scrofula, eczema, erysipelas, boils, pimples, and other eruptions that mar and scar the skin. Pure blood is essential to good health. The weak, vun down, debilitated condition which so many S people experience is commonly the effect I: of impure blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden If Medical Discovery not only cleanses the S blood of impurities, but it increases the ac S tivity of the blood-making glands, and it enriches the body with an abundant supply of pure, rich blood. No matter how powerful the intellect or the resources of intellectual powvr, it must be backed up by physical force. Every jay the youth or man must manufacture f&gj a pint of rich, arterial blood, that pure, stimulating to the brain, and tb&t can re baild the tijwnes that were destroyed in yesterday's work.

The three best sleeping cars in the world are being built for the Pioneer Limited between the twin cities and Chicago. The magnificent sleepers now in use on that line will be transferred to the Chicago-Sioux City run, and the elegant sleepers now in use o.i that un will be transferred to the Abenieen-St. Paul division. This will he a great improvement ami con venience to South Dakota people. 1 mention this sleeping car change only by way of specilic illustration ot the gentral improvements proposed. "I am also (irmly of the opinion that^ the Great Northern will extend south west from Aberdeen this year, This road, I believe, wants to get into the Pierre country, and in all probability will be running in Faulklon before snow (lies. 1 have nothing authorita tive with reference to the intentions of the Great Northern, but am giving you railroad gossip that is believed by rail road representatives outside of the Great Northern coni|any. This ex tension will be a big thing for Aberdeen as well as for the country it will tap. "As I said before, this is the first newspaper interview I have ever given and what I have told you is exactly has what 1 have reason to believe." and Local items of Interest. The Old Settlers association has re ceived a telegram from Congressman Kinkaid. at O'Neill, Neb., that he will accept the invitation to be present and address the association at its meeting .June 15.
