Congressman Fowler Is out against the Aldrich Elastic currency bill framed in the interest of the Wall Street gamblers. Cannon is said to be In favor of the Aldrich bill. This is another Indication as to who is the candidate of the "Interests." It 1b a queer predicament the tools of the "Interests" in this state, headed by Senator Kittredge have got them selves into. They are masking as Roosevelt and Taft men in order to hoodwink the people and get mem bers of their gang elected delegates to the national convention and may, if they win, even have to work against Cannon. But they hope ,to propitiate the "interests" later by a senator who will Berve them instead of the people, and they will need senators. fThe stalwart republican Huronite says: "Wm. J. Bryan is the choice of the democrats for resident and by far the strongest man In bis party—r speaking from the standpoint of a vote getter. Then his fine character and his great tailenta appeal to many who are not democrats." The stalwart republican Vermil lion Republican says: "There de no doubt but that Lee is personally the most popular opposi tion politician In the state, in abil ity he is the peer of any, -arid then, besides, his experience and success as a public servant cannot help counting largely In his favor as a most available candidate." The Democrat acknowledgea!?that it Is very handsome in the boys to say nice things like this ,of our dem ocratic leaders.

RONDELL This is what wo call cold weather, but remember It is almost the last of January, so we won't grumble. Mrs. Matt Brown was a pleasant visititor in Miss Olson's schoolroom Tuesday. Grandma Dunker ill with the grip. A son of the late Mr. Kruger came up from Iowa to attend the funeral of his father. (Mrs. Fred Ashford has been on the sick list, but is now convalescent. Miss Freda Dunker, who came home from the Normal to attend her grandfather's funeral, has again re sumed her studies. What is the fashion? Colds and grip and many are the victims. A brother of Mr. Flschbach has arrived from LaCrosse, Wis. He will spend some time in these parts. Almanzo Robinson had the mis fortune to cut his leg while chop ping wood the other morning. The wound bled quite badly, but Dr. Pickering dressed it, and we trust it will soon mend. Never mind, Al manzo, comfort yourself. Not every one has both to cut. We understand that iMrs. William Lawrence had the misfortune to very badly blister her hand. We did not hear how the accident occurred. Word comes from Des Moines, la., that Mrs. Grace Ashford Daniels Is the proud mother of a fine baby boy. Mrs. Dennis, who went to Sioux City, Iowa to undergo an operation, has been heard from and is said to be steadily gaining. Among the young people who at tended the entertainment at Warner Friday night were noticed Minnie Dunker, Olive Robinson, Edna Olson, Herbert Olsen and Fred Kault. Miss Robinson and Miss Olson remained there to be the guests of Mrs. A. L. Williams on Saturday. Grandpa Kruger's funeral was held Tuesday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frsd Dunker, where he and his aged wife have made their home for several years. His sickness was of short duration, so death came as a surprise to many of his friends. Undertaker Wilson was down from Aberdeen and Rev. Rett, the Lutheran minister, officiat ed. He spoke both in German and English, his remarks being very ap propriate and comforting, and we be speak for this earnest young man a bright future. The floral offerings were also beautiful. Grandpa will be much missed from his accustomed place. (May Heaven's blessing rest on those who mourn. GOOD NEWS FOR S. D. COAL USERS Pierre, Jan. 30.—(Special to the American.)—The Grand River Press, In northern Butte county tells of the good coal fields that are located along the Grand river, and of what benefit they will be to the state when the proper rail facilities allow the products of the mines to be shipped out Into the state. When that time arrives, the coal prices of the cen tral part of South Dakota will no doubt show a decided shrinkage in favor of the consumer.

In the early clays wolves were com paratively unsuspicious, and it was easy to trap or poison them. Then new knowledge, a better comprehen sion of the mod era dangers, seemed to spread among the wolves. They learn ed how to detect and defy the traps and poison, and In some way the knowledge was passed from one to an other till all wolves were fully pos sessed of the Information. How this is done Is not easy to say. It is easier to prove that It is done. Few wolves ever get Into a trap, fewer still get into I trap and out again, and thus they learn that a steel trap is a thing to be feared. And yet all wolves have the knowledge, as every trapper knows, and since they could not get It at first hand they must have got it second band—that is, the information was communicated to them by others of their kind. It is well known among hunters that a piece of Iron is enough to protect any carcass from the wolves. If a deer or antelope has been shot and is to be left out overnight, all that is needed for its protection is an old horseshoe, a spur or even any part of the hunt er's dress. No wolf will go near such suspicious looking or human tainted things. They will starve rather than approach the carcass so guarded. With poison a similar change has come about. Strychnine was consid ered infallible when first it was intro duced. It did vast destruction for a time then the wolves seemed to dis cover the danger of that particular smell and would no longer take the poisoned bait, as I know from number less experiences. It is thoroughly well known among the cattlemen now that the only chance of poisoning wolves is in the late sum mer and early autumn, when the young are beginning to run with the mother. She cannot watch over all of them the whole time, and there Is a chance of some of them finding the bait and tak ing it before they have been taught to let that sort of smell thing alone. The result Is that wolves are on the Increase. They have been, Indeed, since the late eighties. They have re turned to many of their old hunting grounds in the cattle countries, and each year they seem to be more nu merous and more widely spread, thanks to their mastery of the new problems forced upon them by civilization.— Ernest Thompson Seton In American Magazine. SELF RELIANCE. The to Lenon That Waa Taught Henry Ward Beecher. Henry Ward Beecher used to tell this story of the way In which his teacher of mathematics taught him to depend upon himself: "I was sent to the blackboard and vent, uncertain, full of whimpering. That lesson must be learned,' said my teacher In a very quiet tone, but With a terrible Intensity. All explana tions and excuses he trod underfoot with utter scornfulness. *1 want that problem. I don't want any reasons Why you haven't It,' he would say. "'1 did study two honrs.' That's nothing to me. I want the lesson. You need not study It at all or you may study It ten hours, just to suit yourself. I want the lesson.' "It was tough for a green boy, but it seasoned me. In less than a month I had the most Intense sense of .lit tellectual Independence and courage to defend my recitations. "One day his cold calm voice feH upon me in the midst of a demonstra tion, 'No!' '1 hesitated and then went back to the beginning, and on reaching the same point again 'Nor uttered in a tone of conviction, barred my progress. The next!' And I sat down in red confusion. "He, too, was stopped with 'Not* but went right on, finished, and as he sat down was rewarded with "Very well I' "'Why,' whimpered I, 'I recited it Just as he did and you said 'No!' 'Why didn't you say Tea' and stick to it? It Is not enough to know your lesson—you must know that you know It You have learned nothing till yon are sure.

It has been said that few people. In cluding many university men them selves, have any deilnlte idea of the meaning of the gowns worn by collegi ate students. In America university gowns exhibit much variety, there being a great dif ference in the various institutions, but all over the country—in fact, ail over the English speaking world—certain distinctions hold. The ordinary bachelor's gown, the first the student owns, is of unadorned black with pointed sleeves and Is or dinarily made of serge or other sim ple black fabric. The master's gown Is like the student's, inasmuch as it Is plain black, but the sleeves are cut dif ferently, being long pendants shaped not unlike fish tails and hanging from the elbows nearly to the bottom of the gown. The master's gown may be made of silk, as may also the bache lor's gown If it is worn by a man of long academic standing who has hap pened to receive no higher degree, but the ordinary university man has no desire to clad himself in silk. Most doctors' gowns, especially In England and Scotland, have hoods that give them certain distinctions and dif ferentiate by differences of color the doctorates.—Harper's Weekly. A Disciple of Emerson. He stood in the driving, sloshing rain on a corner contemplating the curb. "Don't you know enough to go In when It rains?" asked an acquaint ance hurrying by to shelter. "I am a disciple of Emerson," he re plied. His acquaintance stopped In aston ishment while his umbrella turned in side out. What the"— he began. "You see that curbstone," the first man continued, "where it has been worn smooth by the throngs? You never saw it when It was washed shiny clean before. Isn't it the most beautiful gray-green and polished like a slab? Emerson said you could find beauty in the rainwater channels In a pile of ashes If you looked for It. I'm finding It in the sidewalk." The other man's comment was smothered in a fresh gust of wind and the wreck of his umbrella.—New York Sun. Insurance and Assurance. They were talking, the little group of agents, about the words Insurance and assurance, some claiming that the first and some that the second was the better word to use. But with a scornful laugh a Boston agent In gold rimmed spectacles said: "You are all very ignorant Insur ance is no better and no worse than assurance. Each has a special signifi cance, and each is equally good in Its place. The place for assurance Is where precaution Is taken against a certainty—agaln&t, that Is, death. Life assurance, we should say if we spoke with perfect correctness. The place for Insurance is where precaution Is taken against an uncertainty, such as fire, shipwreck, burglary. Fire Insurance, marine insurance, we should say."— Exchange. PAPER WATERMARKS. Are Method by Which' the Device* Imprinted on the Sheets. The discovery of the watermark was the result of an accident—probably a thousand years ago. Parchment was then made of vegetable pulp, which was poured In a liquid state Into a sieve the water dripped out from be low, and the thin layer of pulp that remained was pressed and dried. When dry It was found to bear upon It the marks of the fiber that composed the bottom of the sieve. These fibers seem to have been twisted reeds, and the mark they left on the parchment took the form of wide lines running across and across diagonally. In those days the water mark was regarded as a blemish since the fiber was thick and coarse and the deep Impression made on the paper proved a drawback In writing. The' quill of the scribe found many a yawn-' lng gap to cross on the surface of the' manuscript—1"switchback scripture" It has been termed. But when wire was substituted for fiber in the sieve the lines of the waterwark grew thinner, and less conspicuous. The possibilities of the usefulness of the watermark became apparent by degrees. It was, first found to be of service in preventing the forgery of books and manuscripts. Many a bogus copy of a rare work has been detected' because the counterfeiter failed to take into account the watermarks of the original. The watermark of many a precious manuscript in the world's museums Is alike its glory and its safe guard. And in the sphere of bank notes and paper money everywhere the watermark Is most useful in pro tecting the notes from imitation. The term "watermark" Is in reality a misnomer since Hie mark is actually produced by wire. \^ire is fashioned into the desired pattern, figure or let tering. This is Insetted beneath the weet In the last stages of Its manu facture and while the paper Is still capable of receiving tie Impression and the wire device stamps Itself Into the sheet Ordinary note paper held up to the light reveals hundreds of parallel lines running up end down, betraying the fact that the.paper was made on a wire foundation. To this the paper owes its smoothness and its even texture. In the manufacture of postage •tamps the watermark Is of Immense advantage: as a safeguard. The wlr^a that produce the marks are kept strict ly under loci:- and key. They are brought out only wben wanted, and an Inspector keeps an eye on th&n till their task Is done, wlien they are at once locked up egaln. London An- A PERSON OBSESSED. The Victim of an Insistent and Com pulsive Habit of Action. The word "obsession" may be defined as an Insistent and compulsive thought, habit of mind or tendency to action.1 The person so burdened is said to be obsessed. Few children are quite free from ob session. Some must step on stoues others must walk or avoid cracks some must ascend the stairs with the right foot first many must kick posts or touch objects a certain number of times. .Some must count the windows, pictures and figures on the wall paper some must bite the nails or pull the eye winkers. Consider the nail biter. It cannot be said that he toils not, but to what end? Merely to gratify an obsession. He nibbles a little here and a little there he frowns, elevates his elbow and In verts his finger to reach an otherwise inaccessible corner. Does he enjoy it? No, not exactly, but he would be mis erable if he discontinued. It is during childhood that we form most of the automatic habits which are to save time and thought in later life, and it Is not surprising that some foolish habits creep In. As a rule, children drop these tendencies at need, just as t':ey drop the rules assumed In play, though tliej^are sometimes so absorbing as to cause inconvenience. An interesting instance was that of the boy who had to touch every one wearing anything red. On one occa sion his whole family lost their train because of the prevalence of his color among those waiting in the station. The longer these tendencies are re tained in adult life the greater the dan ger of their becoming coercive. And so far as the well established case Is concerned, the obsessive act must be performed, though the business, social and political world should come to a standstill. A child who must kick posts Is father to the man who cannot eat an egg which has been boiled either more or less than four minutes, who cannot work without absolute silence, who cannot sleep if steam pipes crackle and who must straighten out all tan gles of his life, past, present and fu ture, before he can close his eyes In slumber or take a vacation. The boy Carlyle, proud, shy, sensi tive and pugnacious, was father to the man who made war upon neighbors' poultry and had a room, proof against sound, specially constructed for his literary labors. Lippincott's Maga zine. Petrarch. Petrarch was at this time a young man of engaging appearance, comely if not strikingly handsome, with a high color and a complexion rather fair than dark. His eyes were animated In expression and remarkably keen of sight—in the Laurentian library por trait they are rather small, but very clear and beautiful—he was of middle height, and his limbs, though not very strong, were well knit and agile. In early and middle life his health was robust, and he was extremely tem perate In his habits, "drinking nothing but water throughout his childhood and down to the close of the period of youth." From the Laurentian por trait we see further that he had an Intellectual face? with a rather low but very massive forehead, a large, Btraight nose, delicately arched eye brows, high and well modeled cheek bones and a beautiful mouth, with lips that shut at once firmly and smilingly. —"Petrarch, His Life and Times." 'Plant* That Poison One Another. It tea matter of common observation that grass does not grow so well close to trees as In the open. The same Is true of grains. Experiments in Eng land and In this country have shown that the deleterious effects of the near neighborhood of grass and trees are mutual. The tree suffers as well as the grass and grain. This Is especially true of fruit trees. The cause is as cribed to the excretions by the trees, on the one hand, of substances poisonous to the grass and by the grass on the other hand, of substances poisonous to the trees. It thus appears that the fail ure of grass to grow well near trees should nor be ascribed to too much shade nor to the exhaustion by the tree roots of the food supply needed by the grass.—Exchange. Iceland'* Eider Duck*. In Iceland on certain islands, near Belklavik, the elder duck Is raised In a systematic manner. It is really more of a small goose than a duck, being so Independent of fish and animal food as to be able to support Itself by grazing on seaweed at the bottom of the sea at a considerable depth. It Is a splendid diver, being as much at home under the water as on the surface. The great value of the eider duck's down is well known, and," owing to the bird's tend ency to pull out such large quantities for lining Its nest that it leaves Its lower "breast almost bare when it Is setting, there Is no difficulty in get ting a good supply of these feathers without destroying the birds. In Ice land it Is strictly guarded against In trusion. The. inhabitants consider It a crime worse than stealing deer In Scot land for any person to shoot an eider duck. Had Heard It Before.

HUMOR OF THE HOUR Did He See the Point? There is a bright young woman of the official set In Washington who at a public function this winter found herself much bored by the attention of a fresh young man, the son of a sen ator from a southwestern state. Soon after his introduction to the young woman the fresh young man proceeded to regale her with a story of some adventure in which he had figured as hero. His listener, a remark ably well bred girl, was as much sur prised as he could have wished, though not in the same way. "Did you really do that?" she asked, not knowing what else to say. "I done it," was the proud response of the fresh young man, and he began forthwith another lengthy narrative more startling even than the first The young woman again politely expressed her surprise. "Yes," said the hero, "thafs what I done." A third story followed, with another "I done it," whereupon the girl re marked: "Do you know, Mr. Blank, you re mind me so strongly of Banquo's ghost In the play?" "Why?" "Don't you remember that Macbeth said to the ghost, 'Thou canst not say I did It!' "—Lippincott's. Good Intentions. "So," said the banker severely, "you are hoarding these new gold pieces!"
