Ccdlngten County Banker Suicides Be

The state examiner's office has
Juat finished an examination of the
8tate bank at South Shore, in Cod
ington county, which is temporarily
olosed because of the suicide of the
cashier, R. H. Williams.
The cashier had .been connected
with a farmers' elevator at South
Shore in which was stored about
,000 worth of grain owned by
farmers. Williams disposed of the
grain and used the money to specu
late on the board of trade, and in
all. He drew on a grain
firm for $500, and placed i^to the
credit of the farmers in fajflfebank.
When he had to make oKdraft
good later and saw this wcngJP bring
out his embezzlement, he committed
The bank examiner discovered a
shortage of $500 in the bank. Wil
liams came to this country several
years ago from England, having been
sent here by his family because of
an Impediment in his speech and for

regarded in the community. The bank

to Meet at Huron.
James Coffey, chairman of the Dem
ocratic state central committee, has
called a meeting of the committee
for some day this week, to be an

plan of campaign in South Dakota.
For the first time in many years the
Democrats believe they have a fight

least, of the state officials, and pos
sibly to elect a Democratic United
States senator. At any rate, Mr. Cof
fey says, the campaign will be waged
vigorously from now until Novem
"The Democratic party never has
been properly organized in this state,"
he said, "we have had the names of
our candidates on the ballotB at every
election, but there never has been a
strong, united effort to get the votes
from outside the small circle of Dem
ocrats who vote the ticket faithfully.
Ijhils year, we are going out to win the

CRQP REPORTS EXTRA GOOD
Immigration Commissioner Deets Says
Everything Is Growing Fine.
Immigration Commissioner Deets
has just returned to Pierre from a
trip in the northeastern part of the
state, which covered the country from
Mitchell to Brookings by way of Mad
ison, and he reports the crop pros
pects are in fine condition. Wheat
was shoulder high to the party in an
automobile, with corn waist high, and
showing a healthy color. In fact,
practically all over the state the same
reports of conditions are given. In
(be central part the hot dry weather
of June injured' early sown small
grain, but. the fields later sown, along
with the flax, corn, potatoes and hay,
are said to he as good as could be
asked for, and the crop in this state
this year is far ahead of what it was
II. B. Pisiar of Philip reports that
he took a trip forty miles north of
the town and Instead of the drouth
stories of last year, the farmers of
that section want a few warm days
to allow them to get into their corn
fields and clear out the weeds. Ev

PUT DISCOUNT ON PETTIGREW
Democratic Chairman Does Not Take
Former Senator Seriously.
James Coffey, chairman of the
Democratic state central committee,
regarding former Senator Pettigrew's
announcement that he would support
Roosevelt instead of Wilson, said:
"Pettigrew is more to be pitied than
blamed for his action. It has long
been thought in the state that Petti
grew's mind is failing and his late
stunt seems to confirm tire suspicion.
His leaving Wilson for a man like
Roosevelt Is the biggest boost the
Democratic legislative tickets could
have. Pettigrew received more than
2,000 less votes for United States sen
ator in the Democratic primaries than
any other candidate for a state office
who had no opposition. The Demo
crats did not want him and are glad
to be rid of him. His boast that he
can swing half the Democratic vote of
South Dakota to Roosevelt is absurd
in view of his failure to deliver the
state to Clark, even when he was aid
ed by Hearst and Wall street." *s
MUCH DAMAGE BY WINDSTORM
Wrecks Buildings in Edmunds
A windstorm which visited part of
Edmunds county did considerable
damage to barns and smaller build
ings. The barns of E. L. Bucklin of
Union township and Emil Leiber of
Montpelier township, both large struc
tures, were destroyed, as were gran
aries owned by several farmers, while
others had their barns and granaries
In portions of Brown county, hail
did considerable damage to growing
crops. Near Cresbard, the wind
wrecked the big barn of W. L. Moul

building was totally wrecked, even the
bolts in the cement foundation being
pulled out of place. A number of

HOARD PLEASED WITH SO. DAK.
The following is taken from the
Jefferson County Union, a weekly
publication by H. L. Hoard of Ft.
Atkinson, Wis., formerly some thirty
years ago a Pierreite. The entire
write-up of the 'National Press As
sociation by Mr. Hoard would be in
teresting to many but spnee forbids
more than this at this time:
All night long and part of the fore
noon we were whirling through Iowa.
We finally got into South Dakota,
when we crossed the Big Sioux liivor,
west of Sioux Citv, Iowa. Our gen
ial past president, R. E. Dowdell,
went through the train and made
everyone look out at the corn and
small grain which was fully two
weeks ahead of what we had left in
Wisconsin and Illinois. "You can
tell it the minute you cross the line
by the change in climate," lie had
anuounced, and, in a measure, Ins
statement was true.
Everyone was amazed when we ar
rived at Sioux Falls, by the smart
evidences of solid prosperity. Past
years' reports of drouth and hoppers
had given many of us the impression
that the people of South Dakota were
barely hanging to the cliff of pros
perity by their teeth and toe nails.
One farmer that we talked with at
Watertown next day said, "We seed
so much land at a time here, that we
only need one crop in three to keep
Officials of the Northwestern rail
way haye informed Immigration
Commissioner Deets, that there is a
demand for men for harvest and
threshing in this state that it is hard
to All, and that road will make a rate
of one half fare plus two dollars for
workmen from Chicago to any point
on their lines in i/ne state. The crop
to handle this year is immense and
will require a large number of extra
men for the harvest and threshing
STATE GOLD OUTPUT
Washington, July 20. South Da
kota produced $7,.550,758 worth of
gold in 1011, according to a report of
C. W. Henderson, of the United States
geological survey. This came from
37 producing mines, 17 of which are
The production of gold is only
slightly below the record of 1908, and
is $2,083 in excess of the product ion of
Along with the gold was recovered
203,755 ounces of silver and 64,311
pounds of lead.
Royal B. Stearns was a Fairplay
caller yesterday afternoon, the pri
mary object of his visit being to
show the force some of the finest
potatoes ever raised in Stanley coun
ty or anywhere else. Thev are Early
Ohios, raised on ground which was
wet down before they were planted,
and Mr. Stearns says they will run
from seven to twenty to the hill, as
large as a man's list and still grow
ing. Such a crop as these samples
should yield at least 400 bushels to
the acre, and area practical demon
stration of what can be done with
soil close to Fort Pierre. Land which
will grow potatoes like that is cheap
at $150, and if it happened to be lo
cated in Oregon or Washington, it
would be divided into live and ten
acre tracts and sold for $600 an acre.
John Meyers, Miss Margaret Mey
ers and Miss Cooley, came down from
Hopewell, Monday. The two latter
will attend institute this week. John
says that the crops are looking good
in his section, and that the use of
the deep tilling machine is solving
the farming question. They have
several acres'of potatoes and al
falfa which are in the best of condi
tion, and they expect to put in about
forty acres of alfalfa next yuar.—
stock Growers News.
The more cattle there are on the
farms the more prosperous are the
farmers. Cattle are the barometer of
prosperous farming and an index to
business prosperity. The time is
rapidly coming when each farm wiil
jhave a number of pure bred or well
'bred cattle which will place the farm

Sam Ahboltin, who lives north
west of the O'Gara ranch on Lance
creek,-was a caller at this office Mon
day. He has one of the largest dams
in the country and put in an irriga*
tion plant last spring. This year he
only had a few acres under irrigation,
but expects to increase the acreage
next year. He says that two acres of
potatoes which he is irrigating will
pay for bis plant and leave him a
balance besides. A few acres irrigat
ed from a dam will insure any family
a living and the idea is spreading.
Next year will see numerous small
plants all over the country, and the
