A Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad pan, on a visit to Pierre, said the only thing that now interferes with the speedy entrance of that road into the capital city is the lack of finances., and he expected that difficulty to be overcome in a short time. The Pierre papers claim tohave authentic infor mation to the effect that the ironing of the old Pierre grade, now owned by the Minneapolis & St. Louis, will start within a short time.

It was something of a shock to the great corn belt of America to have American maize charged with being the oause of the disease pellagara. Therefore the corn belt will be very grateful to Dr. Sambon, the eminent Italian physician, for discovering that corn has nothing to do with it. Dr. Sambon sayB that careful invest gation leaves him no doubt that pellagra is caused by the sand fly "in the same way that the mosquito is responsible for malaria. This western country wants a little less of conservation and a good deal more of development. If the conser vation idea were followed to the let ter the west would not be any further developed fifty years from now than it it now. Senator Borah of Idaho is right when he advocates the using of our resources instead of sequestering them for decades. Bapid City Journal: The Black country has recently been visit ed by good rains.

It is said at the Washington census bureau that the count of 1910 will add no less than sixty cities to the 1900 lilt of. those having 25,000 or more population. Most of the additions will come from the west. The urban proportion of the country's popula tion evidently continues to increase In a noteworthy way. The Mexican department of education will give a subsidy of $50,00 in gold to an opera company which will appear 9T four .weeks at the capital city.

If the airship really becomes a prac tical means of travel it will revolution ize our life as greatly as did the railroad seventy-five years ago. Our way of getting about was changed mainly as to speed' when the bicycle and motorcy cle were added to the horse, and the railroad and the automobile were added to the coach and carriage. The steam ship is just an improvement over the sailship. We still leave our houses by the front door, travel a certain line loute to another front door, as we did at the dawn of civilization. The solid earth has always been beneath us, and the green fields on both sides. But flying is not the extension of a known line of progress, as all other im provements in transportation have been. It is an entirely new line. The only record we have of flying in history is the stunt of Daedalus, the Greek sculp tor, who pasted wings on the arms of himself and son Icarus to make their getaway from their boss, King Minos of crete. Daedalus got to Italy all right, but Icarus flew too high, as mor tals had a way of doing, and the jealous sun god melted his wings. And this may not be true history. Since it is an altogether new line of progress, we have no way of knowing that the airship is to become a practical necessity, and not dangerous luxury. But if it does become an everyday affair, it will make some startling changes in our daily living. OUGHT TO GET OUT Chicago Record-Herald: Secretary Ballinger has said more than once that be was misrepresented in pub lished interviews, and we are not dis posed, therefore, to make much of the latest of his apparent indiscretions. But we do feel moved to say that, uo matter how grossly he may have been misrepresented, the anti-Ballinger sentiment of the country is a f%ct that has immense political significance for the T&ft administration. Whether he is an arch-plotter of evil or the in nocent victim of conspiracy, the sec retary is now a heavy load to carry. He can best serve the president who has been so loyal to him by resigning from the cabinet and relieving him of the load, -ps$ S NOTICE OF EXAMINATIONS.

One which was dug up Saturday near the opera house, while an alley was being graded was found in conditions whic^ indicate that the individual was above the ordinary of its time. The bones jwere laid with a loose wall of small boulders, and on taking them out it was found that there were green mentallic stains on the jaws and other parts of the skeletion. A search of the location brought to light a number of copper rings, which had evidently been hammered oat crudely by one of Indians who occupied this country before the coming of the Sioux, and who were, skillful in the making of pottery and the working in stone and metals. The copper ornaments and the placing of tjie stones about the body would indicate that one of the chiefs of the tribe was probably buried at that place. Wallace E.Calhoon 3t Co. Supt.

Theodore Roosevelt is in danger of being read out of the republican party. An Oyster Bay dispatch quotes the ex president as saying that 'he must for get factional diffences, and even party lines, and support the men and the things which he believes to stand for the best interests of the country as a whole." Where is there the slightest difference between the policy which Roosevelt says he is going to pursue and the poli cy which the insurgent members of congress have been pursuing. Yet Speaker Cannon, Vice-President Sherman, Secretary Wickersham and President Taft and others have tried to read tbe progressives out.of the repub lican party simply because they worked and voted "for the best interests of the country as a whole," which is just what Roosevelt says he is going ts do." Roosevelt better look out, else the Cannonites will catch him. EVILS OF ALCOHOL Qema From an English Primary 8chool Examination. A paper published in Yorkshire. England, reportB that some 6,000 chil dren of Gateshead were recently re quired to do essays on "Physical De terioration and Alcohol," as tots In the primary schools of this part of the world may now toss off brochures on "Variations Tn the Epithelium Cells In Invertebrates, Marsupials and Planti grades." These Gateshead children had valuable thoughts to contribute to the temperance movement. The York shire paper goes the length of pub lishing some of the gems brought out In this outpouring of Infantile sapi ence. Here are a few of same: "Alcohol is useful." says one of them, being most exquisitely pithy, "but not in the body. It is useful for polishing furniture." "I hope I shall never touch it until I am dead," says another, and we wish him luck. "A man who takes alcoholic drink9 can see two things at once." "The children of drunkards are often weak and are sometimes troubled with being bowlegged"~truly an Ir ritating affliction. "Those who take drink are not so broad chested as they were 100 years ago." How true! "When a man is 111 the doctor will say, 'Are you a drinker of alcohol?' and if he says 'yes,' the .doctor will say, "That Is what has made you ill you have a fatty liver.'" "The more temporary we live the better it will be for body and mind." "Some people say that if you want to speak at a concert you should take a glass of'*be^r before. You should not. It is certain that it makes you speak, but you speak a heap of rubbish." "When a man gets drunk his brains -will not telegraph properly." "I will finish up with a piece of poet ry I have made up myself: "Never bo a drunkard Never touch the gin Always be teetotal. And you're sure to win." —Boston Transcript Her Stipulation. When a rosy cheeked, good natnred Irish girl fresh from the other side re cently sought employment in the serv ice of a Germantown woman, the lat ter began anxiously to interrogate the girl as to her qualifications. "Can you cook, Nora?" asked the lady most earnestly. "Are yon a good took?" "Yes, mum, I fink so," responded the girl naively, "If y«m not try ta Wp me."—Harper's Weekly. WILY REYNARD. Wild Creature* CM C»w»«t« With the Fax In Craftiness. Those familiar with the "Fables of JBsop" will remember the reputation which reynard bears among the rest of the animals. It is questionable whether any wild creature can com pete with the fox in craftiness. To look at him generally, even in his or dinary habits, he exhibits an amount of cleverness which astonishes one. Should a fox catch a hedgehog, whose spines effectually protect him from tnOst of his enemies, he does not waste time, as a fox terrier will do, in en deavoring to worry his prey. He mere, ly rolls him to the nearest water, knowing that a drop or two will cause the animal to relax his hold. It is a rare thing to catch one in a trap laid at the door of his CkragressmanBurfce seems to be stir ring up quite a muss with the investi gating committee.

Most animals gorge themselves when they are fortunate enough to come across a superabundance of food. Not so with reynard. Should be find a poultry yard v^ell stocked and ill protected he (Ills his larder first Nor does he, ma the proverb says, "put all his eggs ta one basket" He puts one fowl in a hedge, hides another in a bush, plaoee a third in a hole in a tree, rapidly dipt a cavity for a fourth and covers It up again, remembering in each case where his stores are concealed. And when his supplies are sufficient in his own estimation he takes a fine fat chicken or dock to his "earth" far prsssst me. 39 A Trade Means Much For 41 Years Thousands Have Said IN BEER "Leads Them AH" It a Exquisite Flavor Justifies the Statement TRY IT D.
