4. F. ST A HI., Proprietor
South Carolina has enacted one of the
most stringent prohibition laws ever put
on the statute book, and July 1 will in
augurate state control and sale of liquor.
Nebraska through its legislature has
undertaken the state control of railroads.
It has fixed an indexible schedule of
rates away down, and purposes that they
shall be lived up to. Nebraska has good
cause for regulation of these corpora
Minnesota's legislature has decreed
that that state shall have a new capitol
on the present site at a cost not to exceed
$2,000,000 Ten years is allowed for the
erection of the building and something

Every resident of the state who has
ever visited Sioux Falls will remember
the Pettigrew grove on the west side of
town and learn with a feeling of regret
that it fell a prey to devouring flames
last Friday. It was a landmark that
could be always pleasantly remembered.
Both Turkey and Peru are taking un
justifiable liberties in the destruction of
American property and in insulting
American citizens. Secretary Gresham
has promptly called them to account and
if he only follows up the action until
reparation is made and immunity from
outrage guaranteed, he will have earned
the plaudits of the American people.
Sioux Falls Argus-Leader, 8: The
sale here yesterday was a great success.
There were sold 118 pieces, aggregating
4,72)0 acres, at an average of $14.70 per
acre. The total receipts from the sale in
this county were $68,684. Two tracts ap
praised at $12, sold for $23. The lowest
prioe any was sold at was $12, while the
highest prioe paid was $30.25 for a piece
adjoining the townsite of Hartford.
There still remains to be sold in this
county 250 tracts,aggregating 10,000
acres, which next year will be
appraised at not less than $140,000.
Land in the eight townships in the west
ern part of the county will be rented for
5 cents per.acre and everything else at
10 cents. It is expected every piece will
be taken.
Pierre Capital, 7: The First National
Bank, of this city, has in its possession a
most remarkable and dangerous counter
feit ten dollar bill. The bill was offered
by a citizen for deposit some months
ago, and at that time was thought to be
a counterfeit by Mr. Binford. The bill
was sent to New York by the bank and
there was declared one of the most dan
gerous counterfeits in existence* It is
an old issue and is badly torn and cov
ered with sticking plaster to hold it to
gether, and undoubtedly has passed
through hundreds of banks and thous
ands of individuals who have never
dreamed that it was not a good bill
Right here we want to warn our brother
members of the press fraternity to keep
on tbe look out for these counterfeit ten
dollars—if you get any that you think
are not just right just send them here to
us and we will look after them.
Why Foam I*
The question as to wWF all foam is
white is not an easy one to understand,
but the fact is that foam is always white,
whatever may be the color of the bev
erage itself. The froth produced on a
bottle of the blackest ink is white, and
would be perfectly so were it not tinged
to a certain extent by particles of the
beverage which the bubbles hold in me
chanical suspension. As to the cause of
this whiteness, it is sufficient to say that
it is due to the large number of reflecting
surfaces formed by the foam, for it is
these surfaces which, by reflecting the
light, produce upon our eyes the impres
sion of white.
If we remember that all bodies owe
their colors to the rays of light, which
they cannot absorb, and all bodies which
reflect all the light they receive, without
absorbing any, appear perfectly white,
we shall be prepared to understand how
the multitude of reflecting surfaces
formed by the foam, and which do not
absorb any light, must necessarily give
the froth a white appearance. It is for
the same reason that any very fine pow
der appears white, even the blackest
marble, when ground to dust, losing
every trace of its orij,nnal color.—Thomas
urwick in Confectioners' Journal.

Monetary Difficulties Not Canciof
Any Kmbarrassment at Present.
NEW YORK, April 10.—R. G. Dun Ss
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says:
In most parts of the country more
seasonable weather has improved retail
business during the past week, and
some improvement in collections re
sulted, although complaints are still
somewhat common. With better dis
tribution of goods to consumers there has
been a gain on the whole in the whole
sale trade and industries are sustained
in the main by an nn abated demand.
Local hindrances checked a few
branches of industry at some points and
labor controversies grow more frequent
as the warm season approaches, but in
the aggregate labor is well employed.
Monetary difficulties have caused
scarcely any embarrassment during the
past week, and though more gold has
gone abroad, the markets are as yet
comparatively easy and well supplied.
The iron industry shows no change of
consequence, consumption and aappijr
appearing very closely balanced.
County Treasurer's Safe at Fort Madi

To Get the Money.
TAHLEQUAJH. T., April 10. -The
Cherokee senate has passed a bill desig
nating the chief and treasurer and two
other delegates to go to Washington to
get the money, amounting to $8,300,000
due on the sale of the strip. The bill
will pass the lower house. Quite a sen
sation is being caused here by the re
cent offer of the Mexican government
to sell the Cherokees a portion of old
Mexico in case the United States takes
the country away from them.
A Family in JaH.
ALGOKA, la., April 10.—Mrs. Emma
Finn is in jail here with her 10-day-old
baby and her husband charged with
burglary. The man and woman are ac
cused of having robbed the depot at
Luverne and the safe of the American

pretty close, when Mrs. Finn broke

husband are the parties who did the
job. Most of the valuables taken were
turned over to the officers.

NORFOLK, W. Va.. April 10.---A num

BALTIMORE, Ajril 10.—The Sun's
Washington correspondent telegraphs
his paper as follows:
strong effort to delay action on the
nomination by the president of a gov
ernor of Arizona.
The legislature of Arizona will ad
journ in about 10 days. The senate is
strongly Democratic, and if a Demo
cratic governor is put in office at once,
his appointments of all local officials
will, of course, be ^promptly confirmed
by the senate. To have all the territor
ial officers in accord with the Demo
cratic party is
Of Much Importance,
In view of the fact that full preparations
for statehood are exacted to be made
during the coming summer and it is be
lieved Arizona will be admitted into the
Union at the next session of congress.
All local officers are Republicans. If
they can hold over their influence and
powers will be exerted in the direction
of securing a Republican state organiza
tion and consequently to the election of
two Republican United States senators.
For this reason the Republican senators
have set themselves to work to throw
obstacles in the way of confirming the
new government appointed by Mr.
Cleveland. But the Democratic sena
tors appreciate the importance of the
occasion and are resolved to leave no
nominations unacted upon when the
final adjournment takes place next

CHICAOO, April 10.—A furious wind
and hail storm swept over the southern
portion of the city during the evening,
causing considerable damage. Trees
were blown down, bill boards were
levelled and hundreds of window lights
were shattered.
John Ordway of Englewood, while
riding in a street car, was struck in the
back of the neck by a piece of glass from
the car window which had been broken
by hailstones and one of the veins of
his neck was cut. Before medical, aid
could be given him he lost so much
blood that his recovery is donbtfnl.
Panics occurred in several of the ii^

California's Wheat Crop.
BAN FRANCISCO, April 10.—Reports
received from 40 points in all parts of
California indicate that this state will
have bountiiul crops this year. In the
San Joaquin valley, the great wheat
raising district of the state, the crop
will be unj»recedented in size. In the
Sacramento valley, the other great
wheat-raising district, reports are not
so favorable. It is estimated there will
be only half an average crop this year

weather and a smaller acreage planted

WASHINGTON, April 10.—The truing (toy
department is in an easier condition
than it has been for several months past

small notes, for which the demand still
continues good.

Murder Case.
STrnais, KyApril 10.—The confes
sion in the Morganfield tragedy has
come. Lewis Land, a young man of
the county, called on the authorities
and laid bare the whole plot to kill the
Olivers. He implicated the four men
now under srrest and said that he him
self with Will Gort and Alex Thomason,
of this place, were also in the party that
fired on the Olivers. He said he had
no idea what he was going for when he
left his house. He confessed now, he
declared, because an innocent man is
suspected and might be hanged. This
man, Land declares, is George Henry,
now under arrest. He says Henry was
not of the party and had nothing whatr.
ever to do with the affair. He made a
long statement and affidavit. He said
that even after the shooting some
one of, the crowd wanted Delaney,
whose brother had been forced to marry
the Oliver girl, to go back and kill the
rest of the family, but he appeared sat
isfied with the revenge for the present.
Excitement is at fever heat and it is
probable that before night there will be

TTAOTCTON, 8. D., April 10.—-The ac
tion taken by the Democratic city com
mittee in telegraphing to Washington
charges against Colonel Hughes East,
of Yankton, is approved by very few
people in this community outside of
those directly interested. Mr. East was,
a few days ago, appointed to a chief
clerkship in the agricultural depart
ment. He has been a thorn in the side
of nearly all the Democratic aspirants
for office during the past two years, and
his appointment was a severe shock to
their nervous systems.
American Missionaries Fired
SAN FRANCISCO, April 10.—Private ad
vices from Jahut, Marshall Islands, in
the South Pacific say that the new Ger
man high commissioner, Major Schmidt,
has decided to evict all the American
and native Protestant missionaries from
the islands. For years the missionary
brig Morning Star has carried members
of the American Board of Foreign Mis
sions to the various islands of the group
where they have trained native teachers.
The Germans have decided to stop this,

CINCINNATI, April 10.—The train on
the Louisville, New Albany and Chi

fort, Ind. At the hamlet of Rossville
is a bridge which is believed to have
been weakened by recent washouts.
The engine crashed through the bridge,
going down 80 feet. Engineer Brooks
was killed and Fireman O'Brien prob
ably fatally hurt. The passengers es

Workmen Shut Out the Strikers.
PROVIDENCE, R. I., April 10.—The
strike of the dresser tenders at the Riv-V
erside mills has assumed a strange
phase. The strikers have been out for
two weeks, but they have come to the
conclusion that they cannot win, and
are trying to get back. The other op
eratives, however, do not wish the
strike to cease, and have threatened
bodily harm to the dresser tenders, who
have been so intimidated that they dare
not enter the mill enclosure.
The Khan in a Fury.
BOMBAY, April 10.—I tin reported from
Quetta that Mir Kbudadad Khan, khan
of Khelat and sovereign of Baluchistan,
has murdered his prime minister, has

has imprisoned in dungeons. He is sup

there was a plot to assassinate him.

Why MM I«fM
Within a few years the craze for clubs
has extended to all classes of society and
both sexes until almost every man and
boy in the community is a member of
some club, and many ladies have their
clubs at which to meet their friends and
talk over the fashions or more serious
matters. When the craze took the peo
ple they seemed to think it was some
thing in the way of enjoyment which
they had overlooked, while business mea
found in it a new and quick way of com
munication with customers and a con
tinuance of business through the evening
as well as during the hours of daylight.
The club served also to the men of busi
ness as a means of acquaintance with men
whom they might not otherwise meet
without considerable difficulty, and who
might, by rubbing against each other,
Wive each other's purposes or profit.
It is a striking fact that in many cases
the names of our most remarkable clube
are misnomers, misleading to the unini
tiated, and the real objects of the gather
inga mystery to the members. A man
joins a club for reasons of his own,
which are enjoyment, seclusion from the
outer world, independence, conviviality
and select acquaintance. He wants a
place at which he may meet a friend—he
wants ths tone of the club and the priv
ilege of rubbing against whom he re
gards as his superiors in many things,
particularly business and wealth—and
he doesn't care alxrat the objects of the
organization if there be any other than
