Reports to the Sioux Falls Argus
Leader from all parts of the agricul
tural portion of the stava in regard to
crop conditions for the most part are
favorable and bear oin. «arly predic
tions that South Dakota will this year
raise one of the largest crops in its
history.
While there is a great deal of talk
of rust on the part of grain experts
residing outside the staie, the ap
pearance of black rust ia the wheat
fields of South Dakota is by no means
general. Only isolated fields appear
as yet to be affected, and even in
many of these it is claimed the grain
is not seriously affected.
However, the rust talk has caused
general alarm among the farmers of
the state, who have hopes that the
rust visitation will not again become
general and cause the damage it did
last year, when the estimated yield
of 50,000,000 bushels of wheat in the
state was reduced to an actual yield
of only about 23,000,000 bushels be
cause black rust appeared in the
fields a few days before the grain
was ready to be cut.
It is expected that developments
during the present week will definite
ly determine whether or not black
rust will once more become general
in the wheat fields of the state. Day
is one of the counties in which rust
has appeared again this year, but thus
far only a few fields are affected. Even
in the affected fields the rust has de
veloped only on an occasional stem of
the grain.
The farmers of Day and the few
other counties where the rust has ap
peared, figure that with favorable
weather conditions until next week
the grain will be out of danger and
will yield better than for several
years.
In the vicinity of Volga wheat is
not as badly affected by rust as was
at first supposed. While no one in
that locality is claiming a big crop of
wheat, it now seems to be the general
opinion of those who have examined
the wheat fields that there will be a
fair crop after all.
A careful inspection of the wheat
fields in Brown county reveals the
fact that there absolutely is no foun
dation for the report recently circu
lated that black rust is prevalent in
that section of South Dakota. Condi
tions there, as in many other parts of
the state, indicate a bumper wheat
crop unless there is a decided change
soon.
While there is no indication of rust
in the wheat fields adjacent to Doland
Returns from fifteen counties of the
state to the state auditor for assess
ment purposes show a total valuation
of $50,928,728. The same counties last
year returned a valuation of $48,986,
766, or a gain of approximately two
million dollars for this year.
The itate board increased these re
turns last year to $50,691,894, making
the net gain on the counties reporting
about a quarter of a million dollars.
At the same rate for the other coun
ties of the state the gain for the year
on county returns will be about seven
million dollars, but the net gain over
the figures as left by the state board
last year will be about a million dol
lars increase for the whole state,
which will not give any great amount
of relief so far as coming to the state
general funds are concerned.
The Day county official figures give
that county a population of 13,784, an
increase of 1,530 in five years. Ot
these 7,449 are mades, and 6,355 fe
males 3,339 are foreign born. Of
the towns Andover has 307 Bristol,
488 Lilly, 157 Pierpont, 308 Waubay,
540: Webster, 1,918 Webster has
gained 412. since 1900. The growth
in population has been four-fifths in
the towns.
The superintendent of the censfls
returned to the county auditor the en
tire census of the city of Pierre, for
the reason that the residence of the
individuals enumerate.d is not speci
fied. The rule is that the residence
of every individual shall be so spe
cifically set forth that the work of the
enumerator may easily be checked and
verified- If a person is reported liv
ing at a certain street number it is
easy to discover if the report be true.
In the case of Pierre the city enumer
ator will be called upon to make good.

agricultural returns from Union coun

RELIC OF A FORMER FLOOD.
Peculiar Collection of Logs and Drift
Uncovered.
Up Bad River Valley near the ranch
of George Mathieson, on the side of
a high steep bluff, a collection of large
logs and driftwood have been a source
of curiosity to the residents of that
section, the curiosity being as to its
manner of its getting to its location.
While it was suggested that it might
have been carried here by high water,
this theory did not find much following

As wheat is seldom free from smut,

A great deal of macaroni wheat
was this season sown in various lo
calities. This variety of grain is do

large yield. One of the finest fields of
macaroni wheat in the northern part
of the state is owned by R. F. Suther

county. It stands over five feet high,
and has large well fielled heads.
Rudolph Liebig, residing near.
Frankfort, has quite a large area
sown to macaroni wheat. It stands
about five feet high, and in addition
to having well filled heads is as thick
as it can stand on the ground. It is
expected to yield from thirty to forty
bushels per acre.
C. S. Owens, who lives near North

which he estimates will yield twenty
five brshels to the acre.

DITCHING IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
Joint Meeting of Clay and Yankton
County Boards.
The boards of county commissioners
the law last winter-are the same as
those interested in the proposed ditch,
and in fact it was principally for the
purpose of draining this particular lo
cality that the movement was set on
foot.
The petitioners ask for three ditches
all heading in Yankton county and
running in a southeasterly direction
into Clay county. They will be known
depth of from six to ten feet. This
ditch will be spplemented by laterals
which will be constructed later. The
other two ditches will not be so long
nor so large, but even the smallest of
them will be a gigantic undertaking,
and the whole will probably represent
an outlay of half a million dollars.
While the expense in construction
is enormous, yet the benefits to be de
rived therefrom will much more than
cover the cost. Millions of acres of
fine farm lands which suffer yearly
or periodically from the floods arising
the waters of Clay creek, which
in Turner county and is twenty
long, will be given ample pro
tection from inundation. Crops will
be a certainty. Land which has been
used for hay alone for years will be
cultivated. Values will more than
double and the counties and the state
at large will be benefitted.
The next step in the proceedings
will be the viewing of the proposed
ditches by the two boards of county
commissioners. The boards will then
meet at Vermillion on Aug. 1 to de
cide whether or not they will employ a
surveyor to make the necessary plays.
It is thought that there will be no
hitch in the proceedings to that end.
W. M. Vincent of Union county has
been retained by the board to do all
the engineering and the survey work.
The proposed route is the one recom
mended by the government expert,

KOCH SCORES ON TWO POINTS.
Alibi Strengthened and State's Wit
ness Falls Down.
Mankato, Minn., July 30.—The most
important witness called in the Koch
trial yesterday was Mrs. Theresa
Thomas, a neat appearing young mil
liner of New Ulm, who has never been
identified with the case before. She
said that she had left her place of
business about 9 o'clock on the even
ing of the homicide- When at the
I.ind corner, near the Herman monu
ment, she had seen Dr. Koch walking
leisurely homeward, whistling as he
went. She then walked immediately
to her home, two blocks away, and as
she reached the door the church clock
struck 9:30. When she got. inside she
wound her watch and it was 9:32. She
said the reason that she had not told
the story before was that, for business
reasons, she did not want to get in
volved in the case, knowing the divis
ion of sentiment in New Ulm.
Are Dr. Koch's hankerchiefs cotton
or linen? This question is important
in the trial now drawing to a close,
and it is still a mooted one. Thursday
the defense called three local dry
goods people, who testified that fifteen
of the handkerchiefs in evidence are
cotton and very unlike the blood
stained one found near Dr. Gebhardt
body, which was a linen one. To-day
the state put on two witnesses WHO
testified that fifteen of the sixteen are
linen.
The state's witnesses were Edward
J. Jones of St. Paul, for the last twen
ty' years buyer of linen and white
goods for Field, Schlick & Co., and
Julius Hortvet of Minneapolis, chemist
of the state dairy and food depart
ment. On cross-examination Mr. Jones
became confused and pronounced the
handkerchief linen that first he had
called cotton, but on a third examina
tion called it cotton. He said that
there was not a handkerchief among
Dr. Koch's sixteen that was from the
same lot as the blood stained one.
The defense rested and the state
called several witnesses in rebuttal.

The immediate causes of headaches
vary, but most of them come from poor

is scanty or thin the nerves are imper

which they express their weakness- In
colds the blood absorbs poison from the
mucous surfaces, and the poison irritates
the nerves and produces pain. I11 rheu

statement of some person who was cured
ol a like trouble by Dr. William^ Pink

good, so I bought a box of these pills.
After I had taken one box I felt so much
better that I kept on until I became en

Peril of the Handshake.
Dr. Valentine Nalpasse, a Frencli
doctor living in Constantinople, has
started a crusade with the object of
abolishing the handshake, and sub
stituting in its place the "Temenah,"
which is the Oriental form of saluta
tion. According to Dr. Nalpasse, the
hand contains over 80,000 microbes to
the square inch, and in shaking hands
these microbes are conveyed from one
person to another. He suggests in
place of the ordinary form of greeting
that the "Temenah' be universally
employed, which consists in placing
the right hand on the heart, on the
lips, and on the forehead, signifying,
Thou has a place in my heart, on my
lips, and thou art always Vn my
thoughts.—London Chronicle.
Voice From Arkansas.
Cleveland, Ark., July 31st.—(Spe
cial)—Nearly every newspaper tells of
some wonderful cure of some form
of Kidney Disease by the Great Amer
ican Remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills,
and this part of Arkansas is not with
out its share of evidence that no case
is too deeply rooted for Dodd's Kidney
Pills to cure.
Mr. A. E. Carl lie, well known and
highly respected here, tells of his cure
after nearly a quarter of a century's
suffering. Mr. Carlile says:
"I want 10 let the public know what
I think of Dodd's Kidney Pills. I
think they are the best remedy for
sick kidneys ever made.
"I had kidney trouble for 23 yearfe"
and never found anything that did me
so much good as Dodd's Kidney Pills.
I recommend them to all sufferers."
There is" no uncertain sound about
Mr. Carlile's statement. He knows
that Dodd's Kidney Pills rescued him
from a life of suffering and he wants
the public to know it. Dodd's Kidney
Pills cure all Kidney ills from Back
ache to Bright's Disease.
Men do not have a high opinion of
