'..If *U Lead.— Hidden under a few inches of the freshly filled grave containing the body of the little Junell girl who died from eating sulphur matches, was found the body of a healthy male in fant whose parents the police are now trying to locate. The gruesome find was made by some children who hap pened to be playing near the grave when"their attention was attracted by a piece of clothing protruding from the earth and when they pulled it up, they, brought to light the naked body. The child was only a few days old and bore no marks of violence. A man and woman were seen about the graveyard together the night before the body was found. Railroad Activities. Rapid City.—Present rumors that the Burlington railroad intends secur ing the Crouch line from here to Mys tic and extending west, has also brought to light the activity of the Milwaukee railroad in the same direc tion. The Milwaukee plans to take the Crouch line, extend west through the Wyoming coal fields to Harlow town, Mont., a point on its coast line 160 miles east or Butte, and will then have an almost direct line from Chi cago through South Dakota, and also a line through Omaha, and through Sioux City via Manilla, la., and Mitch ell, S. D. The Milwaukee is now building its steel bridge at Chamber lain, has been laying heavy steel rails on its South Dakota line and is now enlarging the cut at Sage Creek Pass, 30 miles from here, all of which Is tak en to mean that the Crouch line is the means by which it hopes to connect western South Dakota with its trans continental line. Robber Suspects Held. Hot Springs.—The authorities of Fall River county, following the robbery of a saloon at Edgemont, captured an individual with a wooden leg, and in a cunningly made receptacle in the leg was found a quantity of quarters, dimes and silver dollars which had been stolen from the saloon. In the receptacle were coins to the aggre gate value of about ?40. Another sus pect was arrested at Ardmore, and had in his possession the remainder of the stolen money, the two evidently hav ing committed the robbery in com pany and then divided the "swag." Attention was directed to the second suspect when he had ?50 in small coin changed into bills on tne morning fol lowing the night of the robbery. Both men are in jail. SuPP°rt in Corsets. Worthing.—The hevy yield of this year's corn crop and the ears hanging log on the stalk has caused many lame backs in gathering the crop, and as a consequence some thoughtful genius put on a lady's corset, laced it as tight ly as do the "butterflies of fashion," and found immediate relief therefrom. The prompt result of this try-out soon found its way over the rural tele phones and now the local merchants are wiring rush orders for corsets. Even though a temporary famine ex ists, the situation is materially aided by the dear mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and even sweethearts who are contributing to the needs of the -occa sion. -s"~ Work IIS Good Money for Redmen. Forest City.—The federal author ities at the Cheyenne River agency have just finished the work of making another payment to the Sioux Indians belonging on that reservation.

D., and Sioux City, Io. The associa tion will co-operate with similar organ izations in Nebraska, Minnesota, North Dakota and Iowa, for the pur pose of constructing and maintaining the proposed highway, which will be north and south, so far as is possible and practicable, passing through some of the best towns of each state.! Model Road is Raised. Brookings.—"That is the best piece of road construction in the state," says Prof. H. C. Solberg, of the engin eering department of the state college, in speaking of the first mile of model road in South Dakota, recently com pleted by the government in Brook ings county. One of the important things about the road is the reinforced concrete bridges and culverts, which are strong enough to support any weight. All bridges and culverts in Brookings county in the future will be built after the models in service on the road. Plenty of Street Lights. Deadwood.—Deadwood is to be one of the best lighted small towns in the west. Recently subscriptions were taken up among the merchants and others interested to raise funds for 50 posts containing cluster lights of 50 candle power tungsten lamps, which will be placed along the principal busi ness streets. The merchants agreed with the Consolidate Power & Light company which has just commenced to lay the poles and wires, that after payments for 30 months by the mer chants, the lights would then become the property of the city, posts and all.

Democrats Carry Three Ohio Cities and Gain One Congressman—G. O. P. Recaptures New York Leg islative Assembly. New York.—Democratic governors 'n Massachusetts, Kentucky and Mis sissippi, a Republican governor in Rhode Island, a Republican assembly in New York, which will challenge the continuance of Governor Dix's poli cies a New Jersey legislature with majorities probabfy not in accord with Governor Woodrow Wilson, with results of the state elections in Mary land and J?ew Mexico in doubt. This in brief is the result of the election. In Massachusetts, Governor Foss, Democrat, was fleeted by a reduced plurality of 7,734 over Louis Froth ingham, Republican. The Republican candidate for lieu tenant governor was elected by 7,000 majority and other Republican state candidates were elected. In Rhode Island Governor Pothier, Republican, is re-elected over Louis A. Waterman, Democrat, by a greatly Increased plurality. The state senate Is solidly and the assembly largely Republican. New York state furnished one of the chief surprises of the election, re versing the present Democratic ma jority of 24 in the state assembly and electing a Republican majority of 50 or upward. The ohange removes tho united support which both branches of the legislature heretofore had given Gov. Dix's policies. In New York city Tammany's control was shaken, but not overcome, Tammany candidates in Manhattan and the Bronx being elect ed, while those in Brooklyn and Queens county were defeated by fu sion candidates. New Jersey Furnishes Surprise. New Jersey similarly furnished a surprise by the probable reversal of control of the legislature, the returns giving Republican majorities in the senate and assembly. In Kentucky, James B. McCreary, Democrat, was elected governor by a majority estimated at 20,000 to 40,000. A Democratic legislature also was elected, which insures the choice of Congressman Ollie James as United States senator from Kentucky. Returns frotti Maryland were in conclusive. Claims were made of the election of Philip Lee Goldsborough, Republican candidate for governor, by 5,000 majority over Arthur P. Gorman, Democrat, while counter claims of Democratic success were made. The constitutional amendment designed to disfranchise negro voters probably was defeated. Ohio Cities Democratic. The Ohio municipal elections result ed in the election of Democratic may ors in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Co lumbus. President Taft cast his vote in Cincinnati. In New Mexico the Democratic state committee claims the election of Mac Donald as governor by 4,500 In the first election which the new state has held. The election of a Republican legislature is indicated, which will mean the election of two Republican United States senators. Marked Socialist strength has devel oped at various points, notably in sev eral of the municipal contests of Ohio, where 10 cities elected Socialist may ors also in Schenectady, N. Y., where a Socialist mayor and a Socialist member of the state assembly were elected, and in Mississippi, where the Socialist candidate for lieutenant gov ernor polled a considerable vote. Four congressmen were elected to fill vacancies, Joseph A. Taggart, Dem ocrat, in the Second Kansas district W. D. B. Ainy, Republican, in the Fourteenth district William J. Brown ing, Republican, in the First New Jer sey district, and Daniel V. Stephens, Democrat, of the Th^rd Nebraska dis trict. Tammany's Hold Is Shaken. New York.—Tammany Hall's hold on New. York city was shaken yester day in a battle of the ballots, in which local offices were mainly at stake. The Democrats successfully defended their ancient strongholds of Manhat tan and the Bronx, but by greatly re duced pluralities. Queens county also stood by the Democrats, but the Re publican fusion candidates made near ly a clean sweep of Brooklyn, and probably divided honors in the little borough of Richmond. A year ago Manhattan and the Bronx boroughs gave Governor Dix a plurality of 68,389 and elected a Dem ocratic supreme court justice by about 22,000. Now Robert L. Fowler, the Democratic candidate for surrogate. CUT IN LIVING COST IS SOUGHT. Co-operative Plan Is Discussed in Wis consin. Madison, Wisconsin. A commit tee of the state board of public af fairs met to take up the matter of cooperative marketing as an aid in solving the problem of the high cost of living. Those present included Governor McGovern and a number tof Wisconsin university professors. The committee considered the selection of ui export to assist. DEMOCRATS WIN THREE GOVERNORS carried New York county with-a max imum plurality of about 17,000. The Democrats elected their candi dates for sheriff by about 8,000 and the three Democratic candidates for supreme court justice in the First ju dicial district pulled through by a bare 5,000. Francis M. Scott, the fourth Justice elected, was indorsed by both parties. The Republicans gained eight as semblymen in New York county and will send fifteen members of that body out of the total delegation of thirty-five. The Republicans elected a sheriff in Kings county by about 1,400. In 19 out of 23 districts in Brooklyn, the fusionists gained six assemblymen. From a Democratic majority of 24, the New York state assembly turned overwhelmingly Republican. The Re publicans in the lower chamber have a majority of 50. The present senate holds over. In the unexpected landslide the" Democrats were able to capture only three seats held by the Republicans, whereas all over the commonwealth Democratic assemblymen fell by the wayside. In Schenectady, Herbert M. Merrill, a Socialist, won out where a Demo crat had held the seat. Kentucky Republicans Lose. Louisville.—Kentucky, for years landslide victory. James B. McCreary, Democratic can didate for governor, has been elected by from 20,000 to 40,000 majority. His opponent waB Judge Edward C. O'Rear. Crookston Socialists Win.

Kansas Elects Democrat. Kansas City.—Joseph A. Taggart, a Democrat, was elected to congress from the Second Kansas district by a majority estimated at 1,200 votes over his Republican opponent, Ulysses S. Guyer. Mr. Taggart will fill the unex pired term of the late Republican con gressman, A. C. Mitchell. Mitchell carried the district in 1910 by 8,430 votes over John Caldwell, Democrat. Philadelphia Republicans Win. Philadelphia.—In one of the closest political contests in the history of Philadelphia, the Republicans succeed ed in electing George H. Earle, Jr., mayor over Rudolph Blankenburg, "the war horse of reform," by the meagre majority of 5,000. Ohio Cities Go Democratic Columbus.—The Democrats were swept into power in the three largest cities of Ohio, Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland returning decisive Dem ocratic pluralities. A feature of the elections through out the state was the large Socialist vote. In Columbus, Eby, the Socialist candidate for mayor, according to ear ly returns, was running a close race with Mayor Marshall, the Republican nominee, for second place while George J. Karb, Democrat, had been elected by from 400 to 600 plurality. In Cincinnati, Mayor Louis Schwab, running for re-election, with the Re publican indorsement, was defeated by Henry T.
