A Collection of News Items from
Various Parts of the
Willow Lakes—Recent develop
ments denote that Willow Lakes has
an abundance of a fair grade of coal at
depth of about 440 feet. Joseph
Marsh, who is drilling a well on the
the (tns Scbriber farm one half mile
3ast of Willow Lakes, claims to have
drilled through a seven-foot vein of
lignite, whicn is of apparently good
grade and burns freely, leaving a pure
white ash. It is not definitely known
how far tbe deposit reaches, bnt there
will probably l»e a well put down in
town yet this fall, which will be
watched with interest.
Elk Point—The September term of
the circuit court has leen adjourned
after leing in session for the past two
days. An adjjurned session will tie
held on November 5. The only cas-'
tried by a jury was that of Ludwig
Kelson for an alleged caae of illegal
vjting in tbe city of Beresfoid at the
March primary. Nelson was a resi
dent of Lincoln county at the time. but.
voted at Bercsford, in Union county.
His vote was challenged and Chris
Nelson and Ed Englelneth urged him
to swear it in which he did. This in
volves them in the charge of inciting a
man lb vote illegally and their cases
will come up for a hearing in Novem
ber. Tne jury found Ludwig Nelson
guilty as charged and he was fined $25
by the court.
Yankton--This city is squnr-ly em

Minneapolis, is here at tbe invitation
of a number of prominent citizens who
have grown impatient at the inactivity
of tbe council in the big task. For
years a new water system has been
urgently needed to replace the old and
citizens now appear in earnest and ex
pect to vote upon the project at a
special election.
Canistota—"Jack tbe Thresher
Smasher," who until recently has
confined his operations to the northern
part of the state, appears to bave trans
feired 1 is operations to this locality
The first victim of this peculiar species
of villian was John Jansa, a thresher
who is operating a machine near here.
While bis seperator was running at full
speed there suddenly was a crash, and
on investigation it was discovered that
a horse shoe had gone through the ma
chine, ripping out the cylinder and
concave teeth. By tbe rarest good
fortune none of the crew were injured.
A search revealed four other horse
shoes tucked carefully in the bundles
in the stack. The obstacles evidently
were placad in the bundles by some
one who had a grudge against Jansa,
and who adopted this unique and
rascally way of "playing even." Jansa
has offered a reward of #100 to anyone
who can furnish the proof necessary to
convict tne guilty person or persons.

Postoffice Department Hits the
Department Stores &
Washington, Sept. 27.—Some new
legulations have been issued bv the
postoffice depmtuaent. These rules if
adhered to \ill be felt by all who have
to use the mails. Under the new rul
ing department states are finding them
selves up against a strict enforcement
of rules which hits theii mail order de
partment mighty hard.
It has been customary to send sam
ples of silks, dreso goods, dimities,
etc., to out of town trade, the same
bearing tags which state the widths
and the prices. Heretofore packages of
samples so tagged have been sent under
merchandise postal rates, but Uncle
Sam, ravenlike, says "Nevermore."
Because of tbe writing on the tag snch
mail must oe considered as first class
and can brt carried only at letter rates.
Many packages bave lieen returned to
the department stores by the postal
The ruling has started speculation in
the brain departments of the big stores.
Tbe most likely explanation seems to
them to be that they are martyrs. It
is well known that tbe merchants in
the small towns are using every possi
ble means to fight the catalog houses,
which have grown to such tremendous
proportions in Chicago.
Indidations That a Raise in
Western Rates is
Chicago. 8ept. 27.—In spite of the
fact that the eastern railroads have
agreed to postpone any general increase
in freight rates until after the presi
dential election, shippers are becoming
alarmed over reportB regarding the
western :oads. These lines, it is said,
are quietly checking up their rates
with the idea of making considerable
advances within the next few months.
It is understood the transcontinental
roads already bave decided oa a number
of advances within the next few
months in rates to the Pacific coast to
1» made effective on Decemler 1.
While no official announcement has
been made, it is said tariff sheets are
now on the press, wheh include in
creases in commodity rates amounting
to from 7 to 10 per cent. The rates on
steel from Chicago to the coast ar« said
to have leen raised from 75 to bO cents
per hundred pounds.
Railroad officials deny any general
increase in rates is contemplated, but
it is admitted that some of the com
modity rates will be raised at some
time in the near future and that many
changes have leen made by readjust
ment of classification, etc. Shippers
say similar increases to those on steel
are included iu the tariffs now under
