Yankton—ThiH city now boasts a
theatrical stock company, and itn 6rat
production waR put on Friday night
iii a newly fitted np theater iu Mian
Alice Daugherty's clans rooms. It is
tbe purpose of the company to pat on
plays every two weeks and to draw
into the company for the bent ot
dramatic instruction all the young
people of the vicinity who evince the
necessary intereHt and talent for mich
things. First night was a great sue
cess, and the ntar

Chamberlain—Following the recent
sudden death at Rosebud Indian
agency of Capt. .Tack Foster,a celebrat
ed frontiercuiHi), several rumors have
been in circulation as to the cause
of his death. One story was to the
effect that he died from wounds re
ceived while striving to arrest some
desperate characters ou the reserva
tion, he having foi some years held
the position ol special deputy United
Htates marshal with the Rosebud re
set ration as his field of operations
Another repoit was to the effect that
he bad died of heart failure. The
latter report proves to have been true,
bat it is not generally known that
the heart failure was occasioned by
his heroic action in striving with otliei
persons to put out a monster prairie
fire which swept a part of the reserva
tion a day or two before his death.
During his effort to save the property
and lives of Indians and others ou the
reservation, Capt. Foster over ejeited
himself, and this brought on the at
tack of heart failure which caused
hi" death.

Bilkiss, a graduate of Baldwin semi
nary, until a short time ago a vaude
ville performer and now head of Christ
Mission in the lear of the Coenr d'
Alene theater, accomplished in a brief
exhortation on the street corners what
could not tie done by the entire police
force of the citv She rounded up
John P. Gamble, alias ,1. P. Mansfield,
a notorious highwayman, converted
him to Christianity and persuaded him
to confess his crimes to the authori
ties. He walked alone to the police
station, where he told of more than -to
robberies. When taken lefore Justice
S. A. Mann he pleaded guilty to the
attempted robbery and shooting of H.
E. Ayres. and was held to the superior
court in bonds of #2,000. He said:
"I understand what it will mean to
me to confess, but I am willies to take
any punishment that may be given me
for my crime. At the same time, 1
want to say a word to the young
men. Leave all liquor alone. It in
the forereunner of evil. The first
drink may be the beginning of a career
of the blackest crimes. I committed
all my crimes when dtunk and al
ways worked singlehanded, the first
being at Helena, Mont., three years
ago, and 1 guess I've robbed men of
thousands of dollars in my time. I
am not boastful of this I am sorry
now, and I am willing to atone for my
wrong doings."

SOCIETY
Missionary Worker Tells of
Drunkards Among Society
Women
Hionx City Journal, 2: "Neariy 90
per cent of tbe women who take the
cuies for intoxicating liquors at the
big Keeley institutess of this country
are women who have learned to drink
wine and other liquors at the functions
of the very heat society," said Mrs.
Mabel Q. Hilbish, principal of the
Iowa bible school of Des Moines, who
spuke twice yesterday at the First
Methodist church.
''And it is for this very reason that
I so bitterly condemn the society of
the present day," said Mrs. Hilbish in
an interview with the Journal. "I
consider that one of the greatest prob
lejus facing the people of the United
Htates are the habits of oar so called
liign society.' 1 balieve that the ha
bits of the women of this country,
women in tbe very best of families,
wives and mothers, are doing more to
demoralize the country tdan any other
factor.
"Bishop Hpaulilieg was entirely cor
rect wh«n he said that women are re
sponsible for three-fourths of the
crimes that men commit. And I prove
it bv saying that the constant compan
ion of man is woman. Man's every
action is in a sense influenced by wo
man, from the school age both up
and down. The true maker of the
home is woman, and if the home is
deserted for society and clubs, if the
woman in her true sphere does not ex
ert her very best influence, then the
world is the poorer and our civilization
the weaker.
"My work is among tbe fallen wo
men. in my trip? I bare bad occasion
to visit a number of the large Ketley
institutes where victims of tbe drink
habit are trying to reform. On one
occasion I passed with an attendant
physician tnrough the parlors and
told him my surprise at seeing more
than a dozen women, all well dressed
and good looking, the majority of
them over 45 years of age, and some
with gray hair. I asked him ii they
were the wires of patients. I was
horrified to learn that they were in
the hospital to take the core. All
were from some of the test homes of
that city. And the physician told me
that almost every woman who took
the cure came from homes in the
best of society and that they had ac
quired the habit at parties and recep
tions.
"The a mount of drankenness among
the women of tbe large cities whoaie
leaders of tha recognized best society,
is not only astonishing, it is alarm
inn. and 1 have often wondered aud
asked myself: 'If the mothers are
like this, what of the daughters, what
of oar civilzation?'
"And 1 am sure that the answer to
my query is plain. Tbe women who
lived in the resorts, whom you find be
hind prison bars, smoking their ciga
rettes and mouthing vile language are
in tbe main from good homes. Born
and brought up in an atmosphere of
luxury and ease, they have descended
through the medium of tbe dance ball
and the sxdal cup to the life of degre
dation and debauchery. Tbe women
testify to the fact themselves and attri
bute their fall to that law of society
that forces a girl or woman forever
down after she has sinned but once,
while the boy may sin ever so many
times and be forgiven aud taken back.
"These girls would like to go
back and would go back after the
first slip, but there is no help. Tne
mothers, who are responsible in tbe
main for the fall of the girls, refuse
to have them in their homes. This is
the cause for the rise of the-work in
the deaconess home thioughout the
country."
Mrs. Hilbish is one of the workers
who together with Aldetman Hamerv
recently effected the cleanup of the red
light district in Des Moines. She Baid
last evening that though the work was
as yet incomplete it was progressing
rapidly and that there was a movement
on foot to carry it out much more ex
tensively than had at first been
planned. Accoridng to Mrs. Hilbish,
Dos Moines is now cleaner than it hat
been in years, aud on account of the
recent crusade the percentage of crime
is dropping amaziugly.

EXPERT ON WEATHER
How Mrs. Wilkin of Syracuse
Makes Her Predictions.
STUDIES CLOUDS AND WINDS.
Any One Can Do It, She Says—Has
Twenty-seven Signs by Which to
Forecast Weather Conditioni With
out UH of Instruments.
A little woman from Syracuse, N. Y.,
making the weather seers, from
Ifajor Hersey of Washington down to
the littlest clerk in the smallest weath
er tower in the United States, sit up
and take notice.
The little woman Is Mrs. Eva Frai.
ces Smith Wilkin, wife of Ilenry
Dwlght Wilkin, a prominent citizen of
Syracuse. And, although she pro
fesses to be able to prophesy when to
wear your rainy day skirt and when
to sport your fall hat better than do
the weather bureau men with their
big towers and their little instruments,
Bho doesn't make any pretense to be
ing an astronomer, an astrologer or
even a scientist.
"All the signs are in the heavens, to
be read by any one who cares to do
no," she said to a reporter of the New
York Globe while visiting the metrop
olis, "and God's signs are better than
the signs of men.
"I began studying the clouds and
the winds in a desultory way years
ago. At school my favorite studies
were physical geography and astrono
my, but I never really made any se
rious experiments until within a year
or two ago. Since then I have made
several discoveries that are considered
rather Important.
"For example, I have discovered that
there are seven signs which, appear
ing together sometimes, iudican.- fair
weather for a week ahead. By another
sign I can foretell the direction of the
wind for twenty-four hours. I pre
dieted the weather for ten days with
out one mistake. During the same
period the weather bureau prediction
were inaccurate three or four times.
ou see, the men In the weather
bureau sit gazing at little gauges and
thermometers, barometers, pluvlome
ters and other mendacious inventions,
but they never look out of the window
at the clouds. I work without any In
struments except my eyes. Every
morning I spend an hour standing on
the highest point of ground I can find,
so that I can scan the entire horizon.
I watch carefully the changing pic
tures and groupings made by the
clouds and consider all the accompany
ing conditions before I make my
prophecy.
"Of course the weather bureau men
laugh at my methods, but they have to
admit the accuracy of my prophecies. I
Major Ilersey of the national weather
bureau in Washington has invited me I
to go up in a balloon with him this
autumn to study the atmospheric con
dltions. He wishes to convince me
how much better It Is to foretell the
weather by scientific methods." And 1
.Mrs. Wilkin smiled as If she felt sure
of and satisfied with her own nature
study methods.
"Any one can find out the things that
I have discovered," she says modestly,
"There are books on physical geogra
phy to be hnd. and any one Is free to
stur'.y
Ae
and experiment. There Is no se
cret process about it. Observation and
deduction are the basis of my predic
llons. There are twenty-seven signs
to judge by, and of course it Is not
easy to reconcile opposing signs and
conditions. One needs a good deal of
practice to enable one to strike the av
erage."
Mrs. Wilkin Is a tiny, slender, vi
vacious woman, with auburn hair and
the electric euergy of the red haired
temperament. She is radiantly enthu
siastic over her "heavenly studies," al
though she has no Idea of making any
practical or commercial use of her
knowledge.
She has been Invited to foretell the
weather every day for the week of
f-ept. 14-19, In which the state fair will
1 e held at Syracuse.
Mrs. Wilkin Is a Colonial Dame and
a Daughter of the American Revolu
tion as we'l as a weather seer
