Sioux Falls Argus Leader: Informa
tion received today from Parkston is to
the effect that the committee of busi

with Frank M. Nye of Minneapolis,
who was the piosecutor in tbe famous
Harry Hayward trial, to aid the state
at tbe new trial of Mrs. Kaufmann,
which is expected to take place at
Flandreau during tbe regular March
term of the state circuit court for
Moody county. According to tbe in
formation received from Parkston tbe
ueKuti^tions with Mr. Nye have not
yet been successfully concluded.but i he
Pargston committee is qnite hopeful of
securing his services. The bringing
of Mr. Nye into tbe caBe would add
interest to the coming new trial, and
would make it the most hotly contested

Rev. M. K. Aaberg Resigns Pas
torate of Norwegian Lu
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.
Transfer of Lake County Case
From Circuit to Federal
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 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.
Written "if Sioux City Lady
Who Formerly Resided
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.
How ike Madison Revival
Looks to a Mitchell
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.
Address by Supt. Ustrud—Cost
of Education in South
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
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
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
"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
"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."
