Editor of the Ht Paul Pionser Press:
To a perscMi up s trse the political situa
tion in South Ihikota seems to Us in the
most muddled ami mixed up condition
that we have ever seen in a western
stats. As a mstnber of the Houth lrt
kooa Farmers' alliance sint* its organi
xation up to the prwwit time, I wisli to
be heard in opposition to the bull head
sd determination of a few office hunters
to rnin our urbanization. I am a man,
and on re but little for either republican
or democratic rule except so far as the
interest of ths toilinf asaaaas srs ooo
Through rmr we have so rs
formed the republican party that it is
almost the Farmers' alliance, sxoept
that boucks is not governor and War
dall and Hardea srs not ths Farmers'
alliance. Now, why are we to have
third party? Who are the prime movers
in the matter, and whai is their object
for having a third party
First, were are to hnv«» a third party
in onler to disrupt the republican party
so democrats like Harden, Hxtt and
Wardali may get offlos, and also mug
wunip republicans—fres traders like
Loucks -may get hold of tta ul* °f
government in this state.
Second, the prime movers in this third
party idea are J. W. Harden, who ran
for congress on the democratic ticket
four years ago, but was defeated like all
the rest of Jefferson s %nl rXavis'
follower®, and A lon*o Wardali- Who is
Wardali? Well, some years ago he was
farming in Mitchell county, Iowa. The
next we heard of Wardali la in Ghrant
county, South Dakota, where after a few
years he again made a failure of bust
oees, but having a good supply of gall
and cheek he gets a position in the al
liance as president of the hail associa
tion He is penndeaa exoept what he
gets from his salary. Ths writer hss
mat Wardali in hotel and railroad oars
on different occasions, and knows that
his vulgarity and general demeanor
make him dlsagrssabie in any retined
society As the president of our hail
association he has not a large salary,
but somehow he manages to conduct
his political campaign out erf it.
We would like to know why tha public
running *xpenaee of thus hail association
in comparrison to other like institutions
in thin state. If loading officers in oar
alliance give a law hundred dollars to
some concern in Minneapolis, and
another in Iowa, we would like to know
what fund the amounts were taken from.
We want to know now much Wardali
offered to sell out for when he was n
candidate for congress last jreax, though
sverybody kaowa ha ted no ohaaea of
We want to know how it comes about
that the elder (editor of Ruralist) brought
in a favorable rei*»rt of the ballot case
bill in the last legislature, said bill being
the biggest steal that ever was tried in
Dakota. Yet these are the men who,
finding the) have no chance of office in
the old parties, try to howl "independent
ticket.'* Just so sure as we hsve a third
party ticket from these demagogues, so
sure are we as an organization gooe, and
all through the blindfold msnner in
which so many farmers are led to follow
•nch men. What won Id Wardali do
congresst Btmpiy nothing. He would
be in the name position as ths dsnass
going to collage, spolca«k at fcf ths ppst
Burns, when he says:
Tt»«t gang in stirfca and cosm oat asss*.

Brethem, 1st us taks warning in tiaaa.
If we do not like the republican party,
for tod'* ami our own wake let us try
ths democratic party in preference to
the Loucks and Wardali party. Ths

TBRM6H DEVIOUS PITHS.
It nil cams about in the -irangest
way that Clara Osborne became a
member in ths houssholn on the
Strong farm One day, from her
window in ths city, she had seen a
flower girl faint in the street, and by
the aid of a young farmer, who hap
pened to be going by she had carried
ths poor girl into hsr owa roon.
When Amy Boyd recovered coo
sciousness she Insisted on being per
mitted to go ami sell her flowers, be
cause they would wither,— atffl her
mother needed the money. Generous
hearted Clara offered to go and sell
them herself, and every day found
them in front of the hotel selling
flowers that David Strong, ths young
farmer, kindly provided her with.
One day David came earlier than
usual bringing with him a, plac,id
looking, gray-haired little lady, whoaa
he proudly introduced as his mother
•Tve com* to take you both home
with me. my dears Miss Strong said,
as if it were the most natural thing in
the world to da And she did IV in
spite of Clara's remonstrances against
imposing UJMU her so, and assertions
that only Amy needed a change.
Nonsense, my child, you're as
white as one of my bridal roses now.
You must come and let the sun paint
thoss pals cheeks
Oh, the delight of that old farm
house, with !t» quaint old-time furni
ture, its great rambling gardens, with
the meadows lying green and fair be
yond Such an easy peaceful life af
ter the noise and toil of the great city.
Clara felt a happiness stealing like
ths rosea that turned their blushing
faces up rprpwp |b.« |yn'« warm
But Aaay did not frow mnmg. Some
troublo seemed to prey upon t»yf mind
and keep the frail body in a fev«r of
unrest At first Clara thought she
was fretting for her mother, but she
found out the secret one day. David
came suddenly to ths porch where
they were Hitting, and she saw ths hot
blush leap to Amy pai« cheeks, and
the dark, sunken eyss grow fairly lu»
minmis with the fire of her eye.
•She loves hina. Poor AmyP said
Clara to herself, as her own faoe grew
white with a sudden sorrow. "And,
oh! fear that he—he loves mat But
I must go sway. She shall never
know that 1 care for him, for it would
break her heart to loee him. 1
understand it all now
That sams da/ Clara announced her
departure to Mrs. Strong, tit which
•David must talk to you."
Clara blushed painfully, for D»vid
had just corns in. and stood looking at
her strangely, while hi* mother raised
on tiptm to give tht girl a kiss, a&4
fhA# slots Out Of the room.
•Clara, I want you," said Dfevid.
softly Will you not stay for my sake?
As my wife? I love you-' With ay
whole heart 1 love you'"
He did not offer to approach jfeer,
but his tons was a oaress, and, eh*
it was so sweet to the girl who stood
there with downcast eyes, not daring
|0 look up least her eye* should
tray hsr. For she loved But he
must not know It. She would pray
David," the said at last ami now
•he had conquered the weak heart and
could look up *tea#ly into his
faoe David, Amy loves you,
she is dying, the doctor foam. You
must kye her. Surely It will not be
hard, she is so gsnM« and lovely »®d

and pity her?

Two weeks later ther was a quiet
wedding in the old farmhouse. But
It was gray haired Mrs. Strong and
Amy (who had wonderfully revived
since she had conquered her love, and
was at »eacc)who went on the "bridal

Amy's mother to the seaside for
a month, while David and Clara, his
bride, in the tranquil solitude of home,
