This high land north of the city Is certain in a few years to
be the best residence property In Aberdeen and values of from $30
to $S0 per front foot can be reasonably expected before Aberdeen
becomes very much larger. Those who locate there now are con
sequently bound to get large returns on their Investment.
The present owners of The Highlands planted over one thou
sand trees last spring along the streets and will plant from two
thousand to.,four thousand trees next spring, and are not afraid
to spend money for the purpose of developing that portion of the

A "Claim-Crazy" Mother With Four
Months-Old Boy Tried to Get Some
One to Take Her Baby Because She
Wanted to File On A Claim.
Does any childless couple want a
bright, handsome baby boy, four
months old, to brighten their home
and bring them comfort and love
when they are old and gray?
It Is not often a mother is found
who does not love her baby, but who,
on the contrary, wants to give it
away, not caring to whom or what
care the child gets. But yesterday
there was such a hard-hearted moth
er, and tlie sordid reason for which
she wished to give her baby away
added to the patheticness of it all
The woman, who gave her name as
Mrs. Batcheller of Huron, called at
the Methodist parsonage and want
ed Rev. and Mrs. J. W. Taylor to take
her baby. Such an unusual request
rather sjioclced Mr. and Mrs. Taylor,
and they asked her what she meant.
The woman then stated that she
wanted to go to North Dakota and
take up a claim and that she could
not take care of her baby, as she was
too poor. Her poverty as a plea for
wishing to dispose of her child did
not fit in with the manner in which
she was dressed, as she appeared at
least well off. The baby, however,
was poorly and unsufficiently clothed
Born After Father's Death.
The woman said her husband had
been killed while stealing a ride on. a
train last December, and four months
ago the baby was born. She was now
desirous of going to North Dakota to
take up a claim. The good pastor
suggested that she could get work
here in town,where she could be with
her child. But this she would not
do—she wanted a claim—in fact she
seemed to belong to that great army
of the "claim crazy," and for a pit
tance of land would sell her innocent
It was then suggested that she
take her baby to the children's home
at Sioux Falls, and Dr. Taylor di
rected her to R. h. Brown, the local
agent for the home. Mr. Brown told
her she would have to remain In
Sioux Falls for a few days with the
baby if she wished to enter it at the
home. At this the woman demurr
ed she must go to North Dakota at
once to take up her claim and even
the offer of Mr. Brown to pay her
fare to Sioux Falls was not sufficient
to induce her to abandon her wild
desire long enough to take her baby
where. It would be given loving care,
and where every opportunity would
be taken to have a good home found
for it with parents who would cher
ish it and when it grew up give him
an education so he could become
something in the world. No, she
preferred to take it to anyone who
would accept it, just so she, could get
on her way to her claim—her pre.
clous claim—without delay.
Those who saw the baby say he
was a bright, perky little fellow
one they would be only too glad to
call their own had they not little
ones themselves to provide for.
So, is there any one who wants to
a4opt a baby and give him a fair,
square chance in this hard world—
something his "claim-crazy" mother
does not love him enough to dq?

I wonder if freight charges on
durum wheat are more than on or
dinary spring wheat. It appears that
Aberdeen elevators buy spring wheat
on a margin of 11% cents per bushel
while as to durum wheat this mar
gin is increased to 14% cents per
bushel. Many people wonder why
it is that Aberdeen elevators cannot
-payf as much for all kinds of grain
as Is paid In Stratford. But doubt
less this can be explained by reason:
of the fact that the farmers' elevator
in 8tratford causes some competition
and competition In the grain- busi
ness does not exlgt in Aberdeen. The
spread inprice between No. %nd
No. spring ^rbeat in Minneapolis is
2 cents per $tnfe)iel whlie in the Aber
iflften elevators the spread is 3 .cents
We find No. 3 northern
sells in Minneapolis for 1.05 to
$1.07 per bushel and the elevators
in Aberdeen pay 91 cents, a differ
ence from 14 to 16 cents per bush*!

Mrs. R. Burgitt (lied Saturday at
45 in Minneapolis. Mrs. Burgitt
has been in failing health for some
time due to a general breakdown.
She was seriously ill in this city a
few weeks ago but gained so much
it was thought advisable to take her
to Minneapolis for treatment. She
seemed to be gaining steadily until
she suffered a relapse which resulted
in her death.
She is survived by her husband,
two daughters, Mrs. W. E. Lovejoy
and Miss Jeanette Burgitt of this
city, who were with her at her
death and two sisters, Mrs. Spurr
of St. Paul and Mrs. Perkins of Sauk
Center, Minn. The funeral arrange
ments have not been completed, but
the funeral will be held in this city.
Remains Were Sent From Minneapo-
lis and Burial Yesterday.
The remains of Mrs. R. Burgitt,
accompanied by her husband and two
daughters, Miss Jeanette A. Burgett
and Mrs. W. E. Lovejoy, arrived Mon
day morning-from Minneapolis,where
her death occurred Saturday even
ing. A large number of friends were
gathered at the depot to meet the
sorrowing relatives and show their
love for the deceased.
The funeral was held at St. Mark's
church at 3 o'clock Monday after
noon, and was largely attended. The
pallbearers, who were all vestrymen
of St. Mark's church, were Dr. D. W.
C. Fowler, J. L. Browne, W. D. Swain,
C. A. Lum, W. E. Milligan and S.
The Orptic club, of which Mrs. Bur
gitt was an active member, attended
in a body. The W. R. C. was also
largely represented. The floral offer
ings were profuse and very beauti
ful, showing in a measure the great
love and esteem of her many friends.
Mrs. Burgitt was 72 years of age,
and has resided in Aberdeen since
1882. Her surviving relatives are her
husband, R. Burgitt, and two daugh
ters, Jeannette A. Burgitt 'and Mrs.
W. E. Lovejoy one sister, Mrs. N. R.
Spurr of St. Paul, and Mrs. J. B. Per
kins of Sauk Center, Minn. Her only
living brother, John M. Hewes, lives
in Colorado.
Mrs. Burgitt had been in failing
health for some time, and a few
weeks ago went to a sanitarium in
Minneapolis for special treatment.
She improved for a time, and hopes
were entertained for her recovery. A
sudden change for the worse took
place Thursday night, from which
she failed to rally.

County Superintendent Jorgenson
has enrolled 75 teachers in the State
Teachers' Reading circle, and he ex
pects \o double this number before
the end of two weeks. The State
Teachers' Reading circle is a course
of professional reading which is pre
scribed by the state board. The pur
pose of the South Dakota circle is to
give the teachers a reading and study
course for home work along profes
sional and general culture lines. The
work for this year will interest all
classes of teachers, and outlines and
suggestions for study will appear
regularly from month to month in
the Journal of Education and the Ed
The South Dakota Teachers' Read
ing circle was organized in this state
while it was yet a territory in 1886,
and ever since it has been carried on
faithfully and successfully by the ed
ucators of the state. The greater
part of the time it has been under
the management of a board of nine
directors, who were members of an.d
were elected by the South Dakota
Educational association. These di
rectors, by intelligent and strenuous
efforts, have done much to make the
reading circle a prominent factor in
the educational work of the state, so
that now there is no doubt as to its
being a permanent organization. Act
ing upon this condition, the legis
lature of 1907 gave the reading cir
cle legal recognition by enacting a
clause in the statutes concerning its
management. This clause provides
that the board of directors shall con.
sist of three members, made up as fol
lows: The president of the South Da
kota Educational association, as pres
ident, and the superintendent of pub
lic instruction, and one member
elected by the county superintend
ents of the state. At the meeting of
the county superintendents at Can
ton recently Miss Estella McMahon
of Rapid City was elected as such
member. At that time the board of
directors held a meeting and elected
a secretary and selected the books
for the ensuing year.
All that is required in order to be
member is to fill out and sign the
enrollment blank and hand or mail it
to your county superintendent of
schools. There is no fee or expense
other than, that involved in the pur
chase of the books for each of the
years you are a member-.
Its Certificates.
At the teachers' examination in
March and August, opportunity will
be given all who desire to write an
examination based on the work done
during the year. Members whose
manuscripts show an understanding
of the subjects discussed will be giv
en a certificate of credit, and four
such certificates will entitle thq hold
er to a diploma, which should be val
ued as an evidence of four years of
studious advancement. For each ad
ditional year's work the member-will
receive a small seal to be attached to
the diploma. Four additional seals
entitles the holder to a golden seal of
honor and a red ribbon, and four ad
ditional seals, a golden seal of honor
with a white ribbon, and still four
additional seals a golden seal of hon
or with a blue ribbon. These three
golden seals of honor with the sev
eral ribbons constitute the royal seal
of honor, with the national colors—
red, white and blue.
Among the books to be read this
year is Prof. W. 13. Johnson's Mathe
