RESIGNED? Rev. M. K. Aaberg Resigns Pas torate of Norwegian Lu theran Church. Rev. M. K. Aaberg nas resigned tbe pastorate of the Norwegian Lutheran church. This is a matter that has been under consideration for some tiiue, Mr. Aaberg presenting nie resig nation about two months ago, but the congregation resisted and the resigna tion was not accepted until all efforts to retain Mr. Aaberg were exhausted. Mr. Aaberg has been in charge of the church for seven years and six months, and during that time the uhurcn has grown in memdersbip, and the best of relations have existed between pastor aud church people. As a token of their high regard for Mr. Aaberg,the congre gation at their service on Christmas dav presented him a purse of #184.50. Mr. Aaberg is generous in his praise of his congregation, and expresses much regret that the change is about to take place. But, like other people, clergymen at times consult interests, perhaps, in making a change of field. Mr. Aaberg will soon go to Chicago where he will study for a tiuie after which he will again take up the re sponsibility of a pastorate at some point to be decided upon. No succes sor to Mr. Aaberg is yet in view. FEDERAL COURT Transfer of Lake County Case From Circuit to Federal Court The damage case recently instituted by Hans Urdabl, Esq., of this city agaicst the Milwaukeee railway com pany of which mention has been made by The Daily Leader. haB been trans ferred from the circuit to the federal court. A Sioux Falls diepatch says of the case: The case of Marie M. Westby, ad ininistratrix of the estate of Martin Westby, deceased, vs. the Chicago,Mil waukee & St. Paul railway company, originallv instituted in tbe state cir cuit court for Lake county, bas been transferred to the United States court in this citv. The plaintiff seeks to recover dam ages in the sum of $15,000 for the death of her husband, who was in stantly killed in tbe Madison yards of the railway company on December 17 of last year. At the time be was killed Westby was employed as sec tion foreman and yaidmaster by tbe railway company and was in the per formance of his duties. In her complaint the plaintiff alleges tnat her husband was stinck by the last car of a passenger train, which was being backed, aud that the com pany was negligent in that neither tbe conductor, flagman or brakeinan was on the rear platform of the train, and it is further alleged that the engineer negligently failed to blow tbe whittle or ring the bell or give any warning whatever. Westby was fifty-three years of age at tbe time he was killed Mrs. Westby asks that in addition to the judgment for #15,000 that she be given the costs of tbe action. In its answer the railway company alleges that Westby's death was due solely to his own aogligence and with out any fault or negligence on the part of tbe defendant company oi any of its employes. It is probable the case will be tried at tbe regular April teim of federal court in Sioux Falls. LAW BOOK Written "if Sioux City Lady Who Formerly Resided in Madison Toe following refers to a sinter of A J. Garner of this city, and Known in Madison as Mrs. Martin, having resided here several months previous to her marriage to Dr Talboy. The Sioux Citv Journal says: After winningdis tinction in Drake university by gradu ating at tbe head of a law class of thirty-eight, Mrs. Helen G. Talboy, of Sioux City, is now in Dea Moines tak ing post graduate work and preparing a book on real estate law that will be in manuscript form by next June. At a meeting of the old graduates of the Drace law Bcbool last week Mrs. Talboy was the guest of honor. A banquet was held in tbe Chamberlain, she being the only woman of tbe pro fession present. R. S. Nesbit, presi dent of tbe club, presided at the ban IP*, and Mra, latbay «•_.«*» dress on some of the intricate fea tures of Iowa law. Mrs. Talboy, during ber course in Drake, made a record for herself that drew state wide attention because of the fact that she was a woman. Her intimate knowledge of the vaiious to pics studied drew for her first honors of tbe class on graduation day. The honor came both on the markings in ner various brancnes and on her thesis. As a reward for the work she was given a prize set of reference books valued at #250. After finishing her work, Mrs.Talboy was encouraged to take up the work of compiling a text and reference boos on law governing transactions along leal estate lines. The fact that no work of note along this line has so far been compiled cajsed members of the Drake faculty to suggest to ber that she compile such a work. The volume, when completed, will be of much value to real estate men. Mrs. Talboy has access to the volumes of the state li brarv and her treatment of the topio will be exhaustive. Mrs. Talboy did book leviews on the St. Louis Globe Democrat for several years which has proved valuable to her in the present undertaking. RELIGIOUS MADISON How ike Madison Revival Looks to a Mitchell Newspaper Mitohell Repnblican: Madison hat just closed a revival meeting of five weeks duration under the direction of Evangelist Johnson, who has been working at different points in the state for the past year and a half About 500 people are reported to have been converted during tbe meetings and at tbe last meetines held morning, afternoon and evening of Sunday, fiee will oSetings were taken up for the benefit of the evangelist. It was an nounced after the tnree efforts were made that the sum of #1.431 was col lected to hand over to Mr. Johnson for his laoorg. The reports in the newspa pers indicate that practically all ot Madison had been converted and that religion is the most popular thing in the citjr. At the last farewell meet ing held Monday afternoon in the tabernacle built for that special pur pose, hundreds of people assembled to sing the songs, give testimony, and have a general jollification over the results of the work. One of the Madi son papers in reporting the meeting said that "the hymn 'The old time re ligion is good enough for me,' was sung with hand shaking, band clapping and bugging." The paper did not say whether the sexes were mixed upon this last demonstration of religious joy. Provision was made for tbe care of tbe young men and boys who had been converted, and #4,000 was pledged to start a Young Men's Christian pociation and equip it with all the things necessary to keep youth in the straight and narrow path. It will be money well invested. STATE SCHOOLS Address by Supt. Ustrud—Cost of Education in South Dakota Aberdeen, Dec. 30. At the meeting of the State Teachers' association held here today, H. A. Ustrud, auperinteu dent of public instrnction, delivered an address on "What O'clock in Educa tion'?" In his introductory remarks he caught tbe attention of the audience at once by saying "The aim of all our educational efforts is. admittedly, to make the world better, not merely wiser. Teachers and pupils alike must lie made to see and clearly understand what all our text books, encyclopedias and all books of information, really are for. In our schools we should not only teach the children to recite and remember from our text books, but they snould be taught the far tpore important lessons of bow to live. To educate boys and girls is something The Lake Park MCDONALD BROS. FRUIT CAKE of far greater importance than to in struct them. As individual teachers and as an educational association we should therefore in all possible ways try to make the general public under btand that we are engaged in a busi ness of bfar greater importance than trade or manufacture discovery or in vention or instrnction in ueefnl know ledge. It is moie important because until people know how to live, the learning they may have a quired in our schools will rather be a hindrance than a bene tit to them in the practical everyday life. "I maintain and 3'ou will ail agree with me, that we can never have a real popular form of government in this country of ours if we fail to educate our children in our schools to the point where they realize tbe wretched poverty of selfishness and the unlimit ed riches of services. Without this conception of citizenship put into practice our boasted civilization can not be lifted to that higher plane where real self-government is secure." Tbe speaker startled his audience in cal'ing attention to the following data concerning the attendance and cost of educating the children of our state: "According to the census at the close of the year ending June 3ftth 1908, there were in the state 153,939 persons of school age., Of these 79, Ki2 were boys and 74,827were girls. About 77 per cent or 117,(509 were enrolled in tbe public schools, and of this number 09 per cent are attending the country schools, while 31 per cent are enrolled in the independent districts. Lees than 5 per cent are pursuing the regular high school course. "Through appropriations and direct taxation the pepole of our state have shown that tbey are cognizant ot the value of an education and are willing to co operate with the educators in ad vancing the cause of education, not only in the primary schools but also in the higher institutions of learning. From statistics at hand we find that tbe average daliy cost of educating each child in the different schools as follows: "Rural schools. 23.4c independent districts, 20 lc. The yearly cost based tue average daily attendance is $19.89 and #02.33 respectively. No complete data is available to determine accurately the daily cost per pupil in tbe high school, but from the salaries reported for high school teachers we liud that it costs for this item alone over #48 per yeai for each high school pupil. In the higher schools, colleges and normals, supported by tbe state, the cost of educating one person based on the enrollment and the appropria* tions for the year 15(07 ranges from #47.90 to #105 per year."
