The tinal act in the passage of the re submission resolution waa rather excit ing. On it« third reading a motion postpone was lost by the close ac to 21. Then the passage of the reso lution carried by a vote of 24 to 19. It ii a long time yet, however, to the ro peal of the prohibition law as it now •gibte. Should the prohibitory clause be knocked out of the constitution two ^peare from now, by a vote of the people the law w,uld still stand until a legisla ture is elected which will repeal the pre aeut law and pass a substitute. This to vote of Will be found a much more difficult feat %o accomplish than th« mere paseiug of a resubmission resolution. Public Examiner Meyers has sent a letter to the legislature stating that he was unable to send in his report on ac count of illness, and also stating that his examination of the state auditor books led him to believe that the office was in good conditiou, aud quoting at length the statute to show that he had not dis regarded his duty in the Taylor case. The report of the examiner was treated rather flippantly by some of the mem bers and Mr. Burke moved that it be re ferred to the third bouse—the lobuy. The contumely being heaped upon Meyers is said to be unsettling his mind, aud he has been taken home to Water town broken down with nervous prostra tion. Auditor Hippie has undertaken to find if possible what bas became of $160.0u0 which Taylor drew out during the mouth of December. It is the duty of the audi tor to give the sCate iteasurer a voucher for the amount of money that the coun ty treasurer is to pay into the state. Upon notification the couuty treasurer remits by draft to the state treasurer. It was Taylor's custom to have these drafts sent to Redtield to the First .Na tiona1 bank. This bank in turn of course sent these drafts to Sioux City, Chicago or elsewhere for collection, and Auditor Hippie has sent out to the different counties to ascertain what endorsements are on these drafts, with the view of learning to whom the money was paid. Possibly this may be of uae to the state in the investigation into the treasury de falcation. The county treasurers aod county auditors of the state held a bession to consider several bills in the legislature cutting down their salaries and fees, and other wise changing the laws respecting them. They are making a vigorous effort to de feat this measure and will eudeavor to secure certain legislation of advantage to them. The newspaper men held an ail day ae sion on the 23rd inst. and transacted considerable business of importance to themselves alone. They also unaiiimoufc ly deuouaced certain measures cutting down the public patronage ef the news papers and otherwise workiug against their interests, and the members were instructed to bring all possible pressure to bear upon the members of their cjunUe* to defeat these bills. Senator Johnson by request introduc ed a bill to provide for taking up funding warrants as soou act there is money in the treausury to pay them. Senator'Kingsbury desires an investi gation of the upper Missouri witi a view to controlling its waters for irrigation purposes while Senator Hebai introduc ed a biil to locate au asylum for the b.ind at Gary, Deuel count}. The latter would give lto old couri huUae uuU grouuds for the purpose. The new funding warrants of South Dakota are in big Jemand by eastern uapita'ists aud il is easy to be seen that our state credit is not impaired icjt he least. $300,000 have been ordered issued as fast as the money is needed one half the amount will be due Apru 1, 1896 and the other half April 1,181)7. Tbey are to be sold at not less than par and to bear not more than 7 per cent. .. H»«r York Press: Some investigating geuius has made the discovery that the four longest words in the English lan guage are anthropophagenar.au, v loci pedeetrianreticai, transubstaotiationable uess bnd proantitra&euhwtaut»stfonist. They read l\ke a sentence from President Claveland's message. 1 W,'# & i 5 i they can be ran off with the same make up. They are strung all through the irnainn and have to be set up anew, but if the Huronite will demonstrate to us in anyway that is believable,that the print ing of legislative bills for the session does not cost more than $100 we wiH gladly take back all we haw said in criticism. It is cheaper than we ever knew of that quantity of printing being done, add if the daily journals Mad other printing is done as cheaply in proportion to the work aud material, our legislative printing ought not to cost t&m $1,000. •UgggsaF"^w' After the many failures of John U. Carlisle and the democratic party to de vise some remedy for the financial diffi culties ^of the government, President Cleveland is said to have turned to John Sherman It. help hiin aud his party out. With true maguanimity and statesman ship "Honest" John oomes to hie aid aud suggests a remedy which will win without fail if the deniocrauc congress will only pase it. It reads something like this: To enal le the government to maiutain the redemption of the legal tendHrs and to provide for the detioieucv iu the revenue the secretary of the treas ury may issue to «oy amount that may lie necessary short term boods bearing 3 per cent luterest, and in order to secure a market fo the bond he proposes to allow them to be used by 'the national banks us security for cirjulafckon up to their par value." VVessingtou Springs True Republican: Listen now, and you'll notice that the man who howls loudest and ioees the most sleep over tlie defalcation of State Treasurer Taylor, is one who pays httie or no taxes aod pq^bably "earns his bread by the sweat of his frau." The state board of agriculture held its annual meeting at Pierre on the 23rd inst., and elected the following officers: Oscar Kemp of Watertown, president P. E. Piatt, treasurer. D. R. Bailey of Sioux Falls, a new member, was sworn in. The board will in a few days select the place for the holding of the next state fair. The indications are .that this fair will go to Sioux Falls. The board shows a deficiency of $5,000 which it will ask the legislature to make good. EUQEJIE FIELD INTERVIEWED. Itat Za. Me Fhr*d Talk For Mae UmIm at a Reporter.

"Well, listen for your life now. v ff "the entire cost 0/ their printing fof bills) for both houses will be less than $100 for the session" will the Huronite please show at the same ratio of cost for work done, why the amount paid for ^legislative printing" as given by the state auditor's report for the last legit lature should be $10,000? The daily joarnal is not a much bigger job of printing than the superfluous or waste bills. The Huronite thinks we were criticising the printer. Far from it. The legislature is to blame for the lavish work. These duplicate bills we referred to are not by any means put into the printer's hands on the same day so that y k- w. \3'.

The women of the south arc working 'with a will to mako the Woman's build ing and its exhibit one of the most suc cessful features of the proposed Cotton States and International exposition. Thel president of the Inward of women man agers is Mrs. Joseph Thompson, one off the social leaders of Atlanta. She is danghter of Major Liviugston Miais, who was a member of the staff k Gen eral doseph E. Johnntou during the war. and her husband is que of the proini cent business men of the south. Mr. and Mr a. Thompson have a beantifnl country homo not far from Atlanta, which has become famous for its typic al southern hospitality. When the exposition management de cided upon an exhibit for the fair sex. Mrs. Thompson was promptly selected as the person best fitted by social posi tion and managerial ability for the diffi cult task of interesting the ladies of At lanta and of the south in the great en MBdt JOSEPH THOHPtOK. terprise. The wisdom of the chofttfr wna fo apparent that the ladies who became associated with Mrs. Thompson in the work elected her president without dt^ beta Among the other prominent ofli cers are Mrs. W.

This commit tee is a very strong body, and its mem bership includes many of the most ca pable women of the south. A reasonable portion of tha wposi tion's funds were allotted for a Wom an's building upon condition that tlie ladies should raise money for a propor exhibit For such purpose a large sum was needed, but the ladies were un daunted.

The first houses erect*ni upon Ameri can soil were built of adobe, or sua dried brick, and adobe houses now promise to become quite a fad in the west. Colorado Springs has set tht fash ion, and we seem to be at last mi toe trail of a genuine national school of ar» chitectum There is an impression that adolie houses are unsubstantial and UB« desirable places of residence. The fact is, howevers that a well built wdob0 house is cooler in summer, warmer *n winter and more successful in defying time and the elements than a house of wood or fire brick. Many of the most ancient buildings now standing on this continent are the adobe structures in Mexico, New Mex ico, Arizona and California. In Santa Fa. which claims to be the oldest city in the United States, the old adobe Chapel of St. Miguel, the first ch«reb built in America, has stood the wear and tear of nearly centuries. The old palace built of the same materiaf if H*W ADOBK HOLKK AT COLORADO Sl'lUHflfti about as ancient, tod within its walls Indian caciques, Hpanish adventurers, Texan invaders and American governors have successively sat in state. Beneath the shadow of its roof 0110 of the moat successful American novels, "Ben Hnr, was written. General Palmer, formerly president of the Denver and Rio Grande railroad, set tho adobe house fashion in Colorado Spring* several years ago, and now a score of such houses are being built for ihe fashionabfa inhabitants of "Little London,'* as ex Governor Waite once termed Colorado Springs. Half breed Mexicans have been imported to JrtHke the adobes, and no one is oonsidererf quite in the swim nowadays in Col© tado Hprings unless he has an adobe house under way. The Mexicans closely guard the secret of making adobe, but the bricks are formed of loamy earth Qontaining about two-thirds hue sand and one-third clay and a certain amount of straw. The material is damp ened and worked into a proper consist ency by treading with the feet, and is then placed in molds 18 inches long, 4 inches wide and 0 inches deep. Thfe adobes are dried in the son and become Tery hard and durable. i- yJ 'a IV/ .1 1«1 J."' 4^ As cold weather approaches women try to devise means for preventing hands and lips from, chapping. An excellent remedy to prevent chapping is cold cream. A manicure nays that it, whitens tlie skin more thiyi any preparation. It bas taken the place of the old timerein %Jy—.mutton suet. It should be well rubbed iuto the skin, and gloves, pref erably white, slipped on. The palms of ihe glove s shMild btislit in several places to allow ihe air and prevent cramps of the muscles, and the finger1 tips clipped Off. Vaseline should never be al lowed to touch the hands. It turns the kin yel kiw and loaves a stain on the nails that is hard to clear away. In winter cold water siould tjje used sparingly. Its action roughens the skin unpleasantly. Tepid water, with a very few drops of household ammonia and a good lather of castile or borax soap, is advisable. If the hands are inclined to 'redness, the trouble lies in the way of circulation, and slight gymuastics will relievo it.
