Sionx Falls Press. 36 A correspond ent of the Madison Leader discusses a matter that is growing in importance out among the people who tiavel th» rural roads, the people who make the roads and maintaiu them and are pos sessed of highway rights. Tim writer is r.ot radical in his demands. He con tends, merely, that the drivers of anto obiles should give their assistance in bestowing the new education demanded upon the horses that travel the country roads. They should reduce the sueed of theii machines, ox stop, or tarn aside, and thus assist a frightened horse in its effort to liecome accustomed to a new hiiitiwav lnonstiosity. Unless common courtesy regulates the etiquette of the road, the legislature will be invoked and thehorae istnere much more largely represented than the automobile. FOOTBALL. Madison Calls Yankton Down on Ms State Championship Claims. The Yankton high school football team haw been making strong claims of l»eing the champion high school team of the state, but must reckon with the Madison high school team in making the claim.

Madison lias tried hard to get a game with Yankton during the season but failed, the objection raised being the )st of coming to this city. Then the Madison team offered to play either in Yankton or Madison. Nov. 24 or 2(5, if the Yanktons come to this city all their expenses to be paid. A telegram to this effect was not replied to. Madison followed up the telegram with two more, finally challenging, "Will play you at Yankton or Madison. Nov. 20, all exp *nses if heie. Play or give up championship claim." Yankton finally replied, "Clcned our season Thanksigving will play no |ost season games send us copy of rules under which you play."

Murray, the veteran law yer of South Dakota teiritory and state died at his home in west Fourth street at 11 o'clock last evening, aged 08 years. The Colonel has been in fail ing health for a number of months but was about town nearly every day. Yesterday he was down town as usual, returning home about noon and jwissed the afternoon and evening, seemingly in his usual health. A short time be fore he died he complained of feeling chilly and drew his chair near the stove where he sat, waiming himself, wh -n without a word his head settled down upon his breast, and he was dead Hi-s wife and daughter, Mrs. Thomas of Montpelier, N. D.. who is visiting at home, were present in the room when the summons caine. A physician was hurriedly summoned, but life was extinct. Col. Murray was born in Champlain N. Y., where he was educated and ad mitted to the bar as a lawyer. In 1859 he was married to Pauline, daughter of Mr. and Mis. David Johnson, who sur vives. In 1*51 he removed to Hamil ton. Fillmore county. Minn., and according to the military histoiy of Minnesota, Nov. 21. 1861, enlisted in the First Minnesota light artillery. After six months' service he received a discharge, and again, Sept. 8, 1H04, he enlisted in company B, First regi ment heavy artillery, and wa* pro mited to the office of sergeant. At the close of the war he resumed the prac tice of his profession. In 1880 he came west to Lake county, settling at the town of Herman, later removing to Madison wnere he has since resided. For many years of this time be was engaged in the law business w:th his son (j. O. Murray and Chas. J. Porter, under the film name of Murray & Porter. Of bis business relations with dve tsed, Mr. Porter says he was a lendid lawyer with brilliant mind. He had been excellently educated in young manhood and his reading in after years had been extensive. Strong mentally, he had retained a large fund from his readings and at all times had much information of value at hand which made of him an unusually en tertaimng conversationalist. About two yeais ago he retired fiom the firm of Murray & Porter on account of fail ing health and since that time has not been actively engaged, except in taking up an occasional pension case, a line of practice in which be had been unusual ly successful. His surviving family consists of wife. O. O. Murray, Esq., of Chicago, Mrs. Effie Hollister of Kansas, Walter of tit is city, Arthur of Washington tate. Mrs. Thomas of Montielier, N. D.. the latter and Walter at home at the time of death. O. O. Murray, Esq., has been notified and will probably ar rive tomoriow to attend the funeral which will be annouunced later. On account of the gieat distance, Mrs. Hollister and Arthur will not be able to attend the funeral. The burial service of the Episcopal church will be read, and interment in Greenland cemetery. THE FAR WEST. Planning for the Lewis Portland .eronsly sent this last telegram "collect," So much for the claims of Yankton for the championship honor. They have caused to be sent broadcast tne an nouncement that "we are the cham pions." when as a matter of fact, while the Madison players are pretty good runners, they couldn't run fast enonvh to get a game witH "talkers." the Yiakton Sc.

A delightful remedy and fpertie for all Kidney and Bladder trmib'es.—Stoddard & Halstead. aoaoao aaoaoo oaaans nnnnno 25: Hie people of the east and middle west vrill have an unparalleled opportunity next sum mer to see what a great country lies west of the Kocky Mountains. On ac count of the Lewis and Clark Centen nial Exposition, which will Ik? held at Portland, Oregan. owning .Tjine 1 and closing October 13, the railioad-j will make unprecedented low rates to the Pacific coast. At a meeting of the Transcontinental Passenger Traffic association held je cently in Chicago the rates to prevail during the exposition period were d» tided upon. The rate of |4." from Missouri river points to Porland and return is the lowest sjiecial rate ever in the history of the transcontinental liueB. This rate includes such cities as Omaha, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Kansas City, and the trio can be made via the so-called direct lines, which in elude the roads through Denver and Ogden, such as the Union Pacific. Den ver and Rio Grande and its connection:-, thence via Huntington the Union cific direct from Omaha, the Northern Pacific, great Northern through Spok aie, Billings Route and the Canadian Pacific. All these roads pass through some of the most superb scenery in the world thus giving the people of the east .md middle west the chance of a lifetime to see the west and northwest and the great centennial of 1905 at an exceeding ly small cost. The rate from Chicago via the same routes has leen fixed at $50.50 and fr »m St. Louis $52.50. Tickets from points in the far east will be sold at one rate for return tick ets, thus giving the easterners the long looked for chance of seeing the gieat western country. The exposition visitor will not have to get his idea of the country through which he passes from the car window. The tickets sold at these greatly reduced rates will le good for 90 days and will le liberal in stop over privileges. The interesting towns and cities along tin route and the numerous places altound ing in senic wonders, such as Yellow stone Park, the Gorge of the Columbia. Grand Canon and tbe Coeur d'Alene Lake, may be visited on attractive pide trips. D. McKinnon. The Lewis and Clark exposition, which will le worth the trip, excluding the sights to le seen through the country one passes to reach Portland, is a gem of an exposition placed in the most unique setting imaginable. Compact nesi and natural environment will le its features. It can le studied and comprehended within the means and time the average person has at his disj«)sal. The site comprises 180 arcs of land and 220 acres of water, adjoining one of the piincipal residential sections of Portland. The grounds nestle at tin foot-hills of the Cascade Range on I he gentle slopes and terraces overlooking Guild's Lake and the Willamette river The view from the grounds with 1h now capped peaks of Mt. Ho«*l and Mt. St. Helens bounding the horizon has never l»een surpassed in exposition history. The scenic l»eauty of the surrounding country will of Jitself compensate any sightseer for a trip across the continent to this western world's fair. Paiace Market. Augnstat & Moliunby of the Pake market wish to tell the people of Madi son and vicinity that their prices on choice meats are as cneap as can be sold in Madismi. They have always given their customers the best for the least money and will continue to do so. They will meet all cash prices given by other markets. Not a Sick Day Since.
