THE DAILY LEADER SOLID SILVER SPOONS. THE DAILY LEADER Proposes to Give Away One Hundred Dozen, or riore, as Premiums to Its Daily Subscribers—A Chance for Every Lady in Hadison to Own a Set of Solid Silver Spoons—A Great Offer—Read the Plan Carefully, and Order The Daiiy Leader at Once. FRANK SMITH'S GUARANTEE I hereby certify that I have this day contracted with J. F. Stahl to furnish him One Hundred Dozen, or more, Solid Silver Teaspoons, standard size and weight, manufactured by the Gorham Manufactur ing Co., silversmiths, Broadway and Nineteenth street, New York City. This company is one of the most reliable and extensive man ufacturers of solid silver articles in the country, and I guarantee the Solid Silver Teaspoons to be given away as premiums to subscribers of 8. D., December 18, Mff. There are schemes, and schemes, and schemes, gotten up by unscrupulous publishers to catch the unwary, but the publisher of THE DAILY LEADER has steadfastly declined to enter into any of these schemes, notwithstanding scarcely •it day passes that the mails do not bring a proposition to adopt some one of the hundreds of premium plans proposed. Generally, they are to give trashy books, or papers, or pictures as premi ums but take the plans one after another and carefully investigate them and they prove in every case to be a fake. Anyhow, people want something besides reading, though they enjoy read ing ever so much. Everybody likes sugar, but it would be a person of very extraordinary construction that could sit and eat sugar from early morning till late at night, "Variety is the spice of life," someone who knew how to enjoy life has put into a proverb for us, and what could be more enjoyable than to read a Bpicy local daily newspaper at the evening meal and sip your tea from a solid silver spoon. For peveral weeks past, THE DAILY LEADER has been negotiating with Mr. Frank Smith, our local druggist and jeweler, for the purchase of one hundred dozen, or more, solid silver teaspoons to be used as premiums for DAILY LEADER subscribers. It is a big order and in volves a considerable amount of money, and it has taken Mr. Smith some time to correspond with the different manu facturing silversmiths to find the best house with which to place the order ad vantageously, finally selecting the Gor ham Manufacturing Co. of New York City. This preliminary work has been completed and the order has been placed to manufacture one hundred dozen, and as many more as will be needed, solid silver teaspoons, standard size and weight, to be used as premiums for DAILY LKADER subscribers. The spoons will be perfectly plain, not a mark of any description on them, and when the full set is acquired can be taken to the jeweler and engraved to suit the fancy of the possessor. And then you have something genuine to be an heirloom in the family, handed down to children and children's children, besides the great pleasure the original possessors of them will experience. Solid silver spoons are a rarity in the homes of the most wealthy, and here is a chance for every family in Madison to possess them, practically as a gift. Don't miss the opr portunity. The plan: The price of THE DAILY LEADER will remain the same—15 cents a week by carrier 00 cents a month by mail. Beginning January 1,1896, at the end of every sixty days thereafter, each and every cash subscriber of THE DAILY LEADER will receive one solid silver tea spoon, BO that at the end of one year, each subscriber will have acquired a set of six. For instance, all subscribers, old and new, whose names are on our books Jan uary 1,1898, and continue throughout the succeeding sixty days, will receive solid silver spoon No. 1, delivered at the same place the paper is delivered, March SLIPPERS We still have a few pair of €Ije Jltoirtsmi to be the genuine article. FRANK SMITH. 1,1898. and each sixty days thereafter May 1, No. 2 July 1, No, 3 and so on— until January 1, 1899, when each sub scriber who has remained on our books throughout the year will have acquired a set of six. Subscribers beginning on January 5, 10,15. or any other date in the month, will receive their first solid silver spoon on a corresponding date in March, and one every sixty days thereafter until they have each acquired a set of six. Subscribers will be accepted on this premium plan on any day of any month between the 1st of January and the 1st of April, 1898, and no longer, as we desire to close this series of premiums April 1, 1899. But the best time to subscribe will be between now and the 1st of January, 1898, as all new subscribers will then be on an equal footing with old subscribers and receive their first solid silver spoon March 1,1898, sixty days from the date of the premium plan. However, sub scribers who come in any tiy^e between the 1st of January and the 1st of April, 1898, will receive the full set of six solid silver spoons during the year the paper is sent to their address. This is a grand premium offer, the gifts being the most valuable ever of fered by a newspaper in the northwest, and every family in Madison, every newly married couple in Madison, every young man in Madison, and every young lady in Madison, ought to avail them selves of it. The young folks will all want solid silver spoons on their tables some day, and this is the very best chance ever offered to get them. THE DAILY LEADER is all printed at home. It is distinctively a Madison in stitution, having been under one man agement sixteen years—a pioneer busi ness establishment of Madison. It is produced every day by good, hard hon est work. It gives all the news in relia ble form. It pays its bills on demand, in cash. No merchant or business man ia Madison was ever asked to "advertise out'' a claim he held against THE DAILY LEADER. THE DAILY LEADER never fakes. This premium offer is genuine, attested above by Mr. Frank Smith, a local dealer, from whom the purchase of Bolid silver spoons was made. THE DAILY LEADER is fully worth the subscription price asked for it, and the solid silver spoons are a premium in every sense of the word. Do not delay a day in having your name placed in our subscription book, and thereby be in line for the first dis tribution of solid silver spoons March 1, 1898. This is the first premium ever offered by THE DAILY LEADER and we want everybody in Madison to be bene fited by it. We desire to urge upon our subscrib ers that this is a strictly cash deal. We are required by contract to pay Mr. Smith cash for the solid silver spoons, upon delivery, and the amount, as you will realize, for one hundred dozen, is considerable. All arrearages should be paid before the premiums are awarded. Collections will be made weekly, as now, from those on the carrier list, and monthly from those on the mail list.

POWDER Absolutely Pure ROYAL BAKINQ POWOCR CO., NEW YORK. WILL BE A NATION Central American Republics Will Extend the Scope of Their Federation So That It Shall Make of Them a Sovereign State and Alliance. Believed This Will Be Accom plished by February or Earlier. WASHINGTON, Deo. 13.— Official in* formation has been received here that the republics of Central America are about to extend their union so as to give it all the attributes of a sovereign nation. At present the three countries forming the union, Nicaragua, Salva dor and Honduras have a diet which conducts diplomatic relations with the outer world, while each country main tains its own separate government of internal affairs. This has created the impression that the Greater Republic was merely an alliance of three repub lics, but not a republic in itself. It has been the chief cause of trouble in send ing ministers from the United States to Central America. In view of this feeling, Senor Corea, the representative in Washington of the Greater Republic, wrote to the sec retary of the diet, asking for authority to state that the government was to be more than an alliance. In reply, the secretary, Mr. Hondoza, writes to Mr. Corea that a complete union is about to be formed. It will be no longer a union for diplomatic intercourse only, open to the criticism of being an alliance, but i will be a fusing of all the interests of the several governments into one sov ereign state. Mr. Corea has not been informed as to the details of this complete union, but he says he believes it will be accom plished by February if not earlier. SPAIN WILL NOT ACCEPT. Iladrid Imparclal Calls on the Country to flat Ready to Fight. MADRID, Deo. IS.—The Imparoial publishes a strong article in which it declares Spain will not accept the right of President McKinley to intervene in Cuba in case the war is prolonged and demands that the government adopt the same energetic attitude towards the United States as Germany adopted toward Hayti, because President Mc Kinley's message was equivalent to questioning the right of Spain's sover* eignty in Cuba. Continuing, The Imparoial insist* that Spain must prepare for all event ualities and augment her navy "by or ganising a subscription in which the whole nation, from the qneen to the most humble subject, should partici pate." also a nice line of Wales, Goodyear and Ootcne MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA MOXOAY, DECEMBER 13, 1897.

Id. —A special from Moline, Ills., says: The announcement has been made in this city of an inven tion which promises revolution in fuel, lighting and the disposition of city gar bage and other wa6te products. The iuventor, Charles W. Smith, formerly of Minneapolis, who has been working several years on the scheme, claims to have discovered a process by which he can convert soft coal into a superior quality of hard coal. From one ton of common coal he can, he asserts, obtain 1,300 pounds of anthracite coal, 300 pounds of tar and from 6,000 to 9,000 feet of illuminating gas. The process, tested at the Moline police station, in the presence of the city officials and professional men, showed marvelous result! with ordinary garbage. One quart] of garbage, placed in a retort, yielded a quantity of hard coal and tar, besides a sufficient quantity of good illuminating gas to burn two hours in an ordinary burner. i Kot Telling How It Is Done. It is estimated that a plant costing $2U,0p0 will consume the garbage of a city 6f 30,000 and yield gas sufficient to run the water works system. Mr. Smuh declines to make public the de tails of his invention but enough i6 known from his experiments made here to demonstrate that there is much in it. He came to Moline from Minneapolis to escape the publicity attendant upon a test of his invention in the larger city. He has just received, through attorneys of this city, the final papers in his let ters patent. His patents cover the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria and Bel gium. The inventor says he will es tablish a plant in Moline in about five weeks. He is not seeking capital to in vest but will manage the eatue busi ness himself. TWENTY AND TWELVE YEARS Delilab Fales and Yonng Kern Sentenoed for the Murder of the Latter'* Father. WAVERLY, la., Dec. 13.—A plea of guilty of murder in the second degree has been accepted in the cases of the State vs. Delilah Fales and William Kern, and both were sentenced by Judge Clyde of the district court. Delilah Fales was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment and William Kern to 12 years. Both were indicted for murder in the first degree, and the confessions of both admitted that the murder had been re peatedly talked ever together before Delilah actually shot and killed Jerome Kern, the lather William, and alleged pa rumour of the murderess. The man named James Scott, from whom Delilah cla ms to have borrowed the pistol, fled to Indiana after hearing of the murder, and if Delilah's confes sion is true, is equally guilty with young Kern. He is reported to have been arrested. GENERAL RIVERA FREE. Noted liiKuricvut Lrutlrr Released From IttbMiiii* Fortress.
