the fact that it is enabled to give this

Pres. E. A. Rippe of the Commer
cial club remarked to The Daily Leader
today that it nad been said that the
commercial club was a "penochal
club," and tbat the city needed «"push
club." Mr. Rippe said of course such
thing never ought to have leen pub
lished, as the commercial club has done
much for Madison uud will continue to
be the most prominent organization in
the city for years t3 come. There is
a feeling tbat other than members of
the club are not privileged to visit the
club rooms. This is not the case, said
Mr. Rippe. The rooms are open all
day and evening, and strangers in the
city, and farmers, would receive a
hearty welcome any time they desire to
call. The commercial club is a place
to entertain strangers and farmers, in
addition to furthering the commercial
interests of Madison.

Sad Case of Death of Father
and Mother Leaving

is a peculiarly sorrowful condition
which exists in Sioux Falls at the pre
Saturday night at 10:80 Mr. I. Henry
passed away and at 2 o'clock this
morning he was followed by his wife.
I Both Mr. and Mrs. Henry were vie
tims of the white plague. They came
to Sioux Falls about two years ago in
hopes that the light and pure air of
this section would give them back
their health. Fur a time they were
benefited but tbe dieaded consumption
bad too strong a hold and refused to
yield even in this bracing atmosphere
Mr. Henry was for months a driver
of one of the Dakota laundry wagons
out some weeks ago he bad to give up
his employment and take to bis bed
He was shortly followed by his wife,
and they gradually grew worse until
the end came as announced above.
The former home of both Mr. and
Mrs. Henry was Toledo, O., where they
have relatives. The father of Mr.
Henry came to this city some time ago,
but on account of tbe serious illness of
his wife who had just suffeied a second
stroke of paralysis, ne was obliged to
leave Sioux Falls last Friday.
The taking of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
away so cltsely together leaves two lit
tle ones orphans and dependent upon
tne public. They will probably be
turned over to the Children's Home so
ciety for care until bo»«t orb be pro
Tided for them.
