2ol. Harry Hunter Gives Out an In
terview That May Prove
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
"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
"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
"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
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,
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

may be made public at almost any
."Another thing, the Milwaukee is
about to vastly improve its service in
South Dakota. 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."
