There has been over 1,000 acres of Hyde caunty prairie sod broken with steam breakers up to this date, and it is planned to keep these breakers at work until August. The scientists who declared that the world will be a irozen sphere in ten thousand years, will not, it is thought, be around here to annoy people with their "1 told you so." The idea that the middle west is go ing back on the ttcket because it didn't get the vice presidency, after getting its preference for the presidency, makes a theory that may be worth talking about, but doesn't seem to be worth worrying about. Richard Yates, former governor of Illinois, who is bidding for the job again, is advertising himself as "The Man of the Hour." Gov. Deneen's friends say "Th.:. Man of the Hour" is one of the most amusing woiksof lie tion of recent years. Many complaints are being made in western Walworth county from losses of cattle and horsed through the work of rustlers, and there is a demand for a local organization to take up the work ferreting out the men at the head of the work, and put a stop to their depredations. Tree trimming has been the feature of the last week. It is noticeable that the old bush form of tree is growing iu disfavor in the city, and the trimming is being done more systematically than before. If all trees were trimmed to at least ten feet from the ground the effect through the city would be much better From the merry widow waltz to the oid time barn danae is quite a hop for the national dancing masters to take, but they did it this week. All the old fiddle favorites like "Speed the plow" "Prouty's Farewell" and Turk in the Straw" will have a revival now. And who will say it isn't for the best— South Dakota has prospects of the biggest state school fund in its history This is the result of the policy of hold ing the school lands for good prices, By pursuing this policy the state can be be assured of saving a great deal more taxes for the next generation than it could for this one by hasty disposal of the lands. Chief Statistican Clark of the depart m«nt of agriculture says that 1008 crops will be worth $8,000,000,000. The in dications are for great crops he says For eight years the American farmer has enjoyed unprecedented prosperity and now the ninth promising harvest is practically assured. Never have there been nine such years of big yields and high prices. There is talk of holding the next re publican national convention in smaller hall, the object being to give the convention ollicers better control over the audience and to prevent such runaways as occurred during the Chi cago gathering It is the same sort of talk we had after the convention of 1904. The probability is that the con. vention of 1912 will be held in a larger rather than a smaller hall.—Sioux City Journal. .. One of the important duties of the next president will be to appoint mem bers of the United States Supreme court. The chief justice and three other justices have already passed the age of seventy years and probably their places will have to be iilled during the next administration.

Cerebral meningitis has also been classed as contagious and patients will be closely quarantined during illness, and the family quaran tined for ten days after the recovery of the patient. Local.papers from Lyman county are showing up several days late all telling of swollen streams and railway and mail connections cut off in that county. Oue of the costly features of the floods comes from the loss of dams ou which many of the settlers depend for their water supply. The going out of these dams also added to the Hood waters in the streams increasing the damage from that cause. The replacing of the dams lost will be a heavy expense on many of the settlers of that county. A citation of errors tiled by Attorney Hayes, who is representing Freeman T. Knowles, publisher of the "Lautern," at Deadwood, convicted of sending matter of a lewd and lascivious charac ter through the United States mails, has secured for the latter a new hear ing before the eighth circuit court of the United States at St. Louis. The defendant in the case has been in the jail of Pennington county at Rapid City, iu default of the payment of a $5u0 line,imposed by judgement of the federal court at Deadwood, The coming national election is one of more national importance than is thought possible by the casual observer The people of the United StateB will not only elect anew president and vice president, but thirty U. S. senators out of the ninty-su which compose the upper house, while a full membership will beelocted for the house of repre sentatives. A change of party in the presidential election would no doubt mean an entire change in the cabinet, and therfore the approaching election this fall takes on added .significance and party fines will no doubt be closely drawn. The Majorities. It will be a few days before the offi cial count will be made. State Secre tary VVipf has received the county ofli cial returns from the auditors of all the counties of the state showing what the vote was on all ollicers in the re cent primary and the returns give them the following majorities: Seuate—Crawford, 2,117.

All are progressive except treasurer and the congressmen. A Change Has Taken Place. The public school system, which covers the country from ocean to ocean, had its beginning a little more than seventy-live years ago. It may seem strange to those of us who have grown accustomed to public schools to read the statement that the first man who had the nerve to publicly address an audience in favor of a public school system was arrested and thrown iu jail. That, however, was the fate of all those heroes of the past who dared stand for progress. Familiar as we are with history, we are little wiser than our grand-fathers.—Appeal to Reason. By Joliu Jay Harrison. Not to have seen Clay Clement in one of his most finished creations, "Baron Hohenstauffen," is not to have seen one of the great actors of the day in one of the must charming plays of this or any other day. In "The New Dominion." of which the eminent actor is author and in which he opened a week's en gagement at the Marquam yesterday, there is presented a otudy in characters that are lovable and altogether human. The charm of the play lies in its ever present simplicity, in that not one strained effort for merd effect mars the beautiful unfolding of the story. The comedy is of that high order one finds in the classics.- There is an absence of coarseness and grossness. Mr. Clement's Hohenstauffen suggests intimate as sociation with cultured Germans, an intimacy Mr. Clement enjoyod when a student at Heidelberg., 25, S *2 *7,* xK.?5) It ... -M Vi A5«, Substitutes For Pulp Work. The American nation lias the reputa tion of wasting almost as much of its resources as it uses. Pacts are often advanced to show that there is much truth in such a statement, A practical paper-maker recently called attention to a few of the sources of enormous waste when speaking of the number of materials in America's refuse heap which are worth pulp. The Northwest annually produces a million and a half tons of llax stalks which are not now used for auything. That amount of waste remains after the twine makers take all they want. It makes excellent paper, The farmers in the South burn or plow under 13 million tons of cotton stalks every year. That which is plow ed under is not wholly lost for it en riches the soil to some extent, but not so with what goes up in smoke. Five hundred thousand tons of liber have been adhering to cotton seed every year. It has beed fed to farm stock along with the seed and has done the stock no good. Cattle and sheep do not like the fiber and the seed cake is better without it, A machine has been invented, which, it is claimed, will separate the lint from the seed. Paper makers think they can use it. Nobody knows how many million tons of cornstalks go to waste but iu quality they are far ahead of cotton stalk, and it is believed they can be made into paper, although it has not yet been done ou a commercial scale. Thousands of acres of wild hemp grow in the south-western part of the country, particularly along the Colorado River. Its only use now is to shelter Jack rabbits aud coyotes, but it has splendid liber and tests on small scale show that excellent paper can be made from it. Paper making from straw is a well established iudustry, Bookbinders use thousands of tons of straw board. The straw which goes to waste iu western wheat fields would bring fortunes if made into paper. Lists of fibrous or woody plants suit able for paper are almost without limit, but only a few may be had iu quantity suflicientiy large to be worth consider ing. The timo has not yet come when it is absolutely necessarv that substitutes for pulp wood be found, but it is com ing. The forests are still able to fur nish materials for paper, but they can not continue to do so for a great many years to come, at the present rate of cutting and growth. Makers of paper anticipate a scarcity of pulp wood arid it is this which prompts the active search now going ou for substitutes. Graham Dies of Wounds. Sturgis, June 23.—Edward Graham, who was wounded Sunday morning in the Baldwin-Edward Graham duei on Spring creek, in which Graham killed Baldwiu, died at 6 o'clock tonight at the Fort Meade hospital. Graham was shot twice, but rallied until tonight. The bullet which caused his death en tered the lower right breast, passing through the muscles of the back. To Rush AlJotment Work. According to reports received here from Tripp county, now included in the Rosebud Indian reservation, arrange ments are rapidly being completed lor opening to white settlement from 000, 000 to 700,000 acres ot land situated within the boundaries of the county. The ^xact time that the land will be thrown open to settlement depends up on the time government alloting crews complete the work of allotting land to Indians within the borders of the coun ty. That the otlicials of the Indian bureau at Washington are doing every thing possible to hasten the work of allotting is indicated by the fact that John H. iscriveu, special allotting agent in charge of the allotment work on that part of the reservation, has received instructions to immediately place an other allotting crew in the field so the work of allotting the remaining Indians may be completed at the earliest possi bl$ date. 1?^' 1908. USInoj) 4* Storm Damage is Heavy. The teyere storm which swept over the extreme eastern portion of the state on June 21, caused much damage in the vicinity of Castlewood. Neaciy 2 inches of rain fell in the space of about half an hour. In town (he streets were running rivers, cellars were filled and1 window glass demolished. The storm was from six to eight miles wide and about sixty miles long. Ali early grain was entirely destroyed and thousands of acres will not be harvest ed. Since the storm farmers are com ing into town and countermanding their orders for binding twine aud har vesting machinery. It is thought the grain that waB not too far advanced will recover to a certain extent and mas make & f$ir crop. AA-«rJ. Crops and Prosperity. According to the estimates of the de partment of agriculture all harvest records are to be broken this year. The value of the various crops is likely to reach, if not to exceed, $7,000,000,000. Only six years ago it was a little under SO,000,000,000.' The growth in the value of farm products is indicated by the following table, based on oflicial calcu lations: 1907 :...$7,412,000,000 l'Kfi 6,755,000,000 l»05 6,309,000,000 1M4 6,159,000,000 1903 5,907,000,000 The excellent condition of the cropB has a great deal to do with main taining prosperity and evidence of this is found in the fact that agricultural communities scarcely felt the effects of the racent financial flurry. The Chicago Record Herald paj$ a tribute to farmers by saying they are tho backbone of the nation and that their farm products provide the great est safeguard to prosperity. This be ing true there is every indication of a continuance of present prosperity, for conservative estimates place the valua tion of this year's crop at nearly 8600, (XX),000 in excess of that of 1907. The wealth of the farm finds a ready demand not only here but in the old world. Even periods of depression do not seriously affect it. And the farm er's prosperity means work for mills aud factories employment for idle, traf fic for carriers, cheer for all. South Dakota now has something over half a million people. In ten yearo we ought to have a million. South Da kota has just started on her develop ment. There is no hurry about selling these lauds. When the minimum price A'i was originally put at $10 per here, some. said it waB itt -I »"V ,v i&Wf A Pricely Sum. The Argus-Leader published in yesterday's paper, tells of the pleasing distribution of $359,708 as the semi annual distribution yet made, which shows that the fund is increasing from year to year. It now exceeds live millions of dollars and when allot the stUte lands are sold—and there should be no hurry about selliug these landB-— will amount in the aggregate to about forty millions of dollars. The amount distributed to each school district for the semi annual period is $2 46 for each child of school age in the state. Else where ou this page the Argus-Leader |f$ prints the amount which is thus distri buted to each county in the state. too high. Some of these* lands have since sold for $G0 an acre*. Let the present generation patiently bear its burdens, to the end that the next generation may have a school fund which will be almost if not quite large enough to maintain the schools with out taxation.—Argus Leader. Opera House July 4th. The Portland Oregonian pronounces Clay Clement one the the greatest actors of the day. He is in the same class with Walker Whiteside.
