In many sections of Sooth Dakota
this fall come reports of money loaners
having a hard time to stand o3 the
men who owe them money and who
persist in a desire to pay up their loans
and take op their paper before it is clue.
Not only is thin tne case with individ
uals but debtors to the state school
fund desire to take up their paper be
fore it is due, and for that privilege
are willing to pay interest for a vear in
advance. The state in the same
shape as the private individual who
has Rood loans oat, and does not want,
the principal, but the income. The
private individual can refuse to accept
tbe money before it is due, but when
the interest in advance is offered the
state it must accept. How different
this condition from the situation in
South Dakota so short a time ago that
it almost seems yesterday when it was
the money loanei who was importuning
for his money and the borrower vsk&MW
begging for time.

AFTER THE MAN.
Eastern Women Would Like to
Capture a Susceptible Beadle
Huron dispatch. 4: During the Sep
tember term of ciicnit court in this
city. Judge Whiting, of the Ninth ju
dicial circuit, imposed a tine ol up
on a well to do fanner and widower
living in the western part of Beadle
county for violating an order restraining
him fiom liestowing affections or gifts
upon an attractive widow and school
teacher in the same neighborhood
against her wishes. So unique and out
of tlie usual line of court proceedings
was the action that the matter found
it* way into the newspapers, and the
case has caused much comment and no
little correspondence has resulted from
people curious to know "all the facts.
Officers of the couit have received com
munications from eastern women aspir
ing to matrimonial entanglements, ask
ing foi the suggestion of a plan where
by they may be brought into commun
ication with the ardent admirer of
widows. If these letteis of inquiry
(ontinue to increase in numbers it will
be necessary to employ a clerk to an
swer them. One of the inquiries, con
taining a clipping telling of the action
of the court, w^'tten upon delicately
tinted stationery and sweetly perfumed,
addressed to Judge Whiting, and dated
New York city, reads as follows:
"Deal Hir: Please do not think me
intruding if I write you these few lines,
but reading this clipping in a New
York paper I find it woith while to ask
you if it i-i possible for you to bring
me into connection with this farmer,
for I see he is fond of widows, and 1
am a charming widow of 28, and you
would earn a thousand thanks if you
could form an acquaintance batweep ua
through the mails."
