Last week a big snowdrift in the bain
yard, one that had overtopped the
fences, melted nearly to the ground.
Van Hook was going out to work one
morning, when he saw a small black
object moving in the drift. He wmt
to investigate and discovered it was
the head of his lost turkey hen. It
was piomptly excavated from its pri

FREIGHT RATES
State Railroad Commission in
Regular Session at
Sioux Falls*
Sierra Vails. March
HO.—All mem­
bers of the state board cf railroad
commissioners—Messrs. Geo. Rice and
F. C. Robinson and Dr. W. U. Smith
-attended the regular monthly meet
iug of the board, which has just been
held at the headquarters of the com
mission in this city.
The matter of establishing of joint
freight rates in South Dakota was dis
cussed to some extent and the board de
cided to call a hearing at which the
entire matter of joiut rates would be
gone over. The ^hearing will be held
in Sioux Falls during the mouth of
April. The exact time for the hear
iug has not yet been fixed but due no
tice will be inven the public when the
date is determined upon.
The South Dakota board is in strong
sympathy with the effort of the North
western Millers' association to secure a
re adjustment of rates to eastern
points by a proceeding which the asso
ciation has commenced before the in
terstate commerce commission, and
Commissioner F. C. Robinson was dele
gated to represeut the commission at
the bearing befoie the interstate com
merce commission. The proceeding of
the millers's association is based upon
the ground that cheap transportation
of wheat enables eastern millers to pell
flour in Atlantic seaboard markets at
prices which are destructive to the
business of western millers.
A complaint was made to the Iward
that the Milwaukee Kailroad company
was about to withdraw the reduced
rate on shipments of seed giaiu, which
is one-half the regular rate. The
board communicated with the railroad
company, which has advised the board
that the reduced rate on shipments of
seed grain bad been restored and would
remain in effect until after aeeding
time.

APRIL If BATHER
Hicks, Noted Forecaster, Pre
dicts Weather for
April.
St. Lonis, March 80.—Rev. Irl Hicks
i^ires ont the following weather fore
cast for April
A regulai storm period is central on
the 2d, reaching from March 31 to
April r. The Venus force and the Mars
period is nearing its center on th»
12th. Full moon on the equator falls
on the 5th and Saturn is in conjunc
tion with earth and sun on the :id.
This is an array of astronomic causes
which forcibly suggests phenomena
out of the ordinary. Storm and
weather conditions will reach a serious
crisis from the 1st to the 6th, culmi
nating on and touching the 4th and
"th. If a tendency to tropical and
tornadic storms exiHts the last half of
March, there will be danger of a cli
max of such storms at this period. If
Iwreal storms of snow and sleet have
preceded, a crisis of such storms and
weather will fall at this time. We
think the latter will prevail. Center
ing on the fitb and extending three
days before and after that date, is one
of the most seismic periods of the year.
A reactionary storm period is cen
tral on the 7th and 8th. This period
is covered by the Mercury disturbance
anu will bring renewal of low baro
meter and atorms of rain and possibly
sleet and snow. With *o many other
causes bearing on this Mercury period,
late in the season as it is, people in the
northern section should not be sur
prised by destructive slqet storms and
even blizzards at eituer of the first
three storm periods in April.
A regular storm period, embracing
the central days of both the Mars
and the Mercury periods, coveis the
11 th to the 19th, being central with
moon's last quarter on the ltfth. This
is another peiiod when the character
istics of the Mars influence will be t»re
sent to a marked degree. Vicious
thunder storms, heavy rains, with de
structive hail in many localities, will
result at this time, if boreal influences
have not phenomenally dominated
storm and weather thus far in the Mars
period.
A reactionary storm period is ceu
tral on the 18th, 19th and '20th, em
bracing moon in perigee and on the
celestial equator on the 18th and new
moon on the 19th. This period prom
ises to be practically a prolongation of
the preceding period, caused by thf
continued influences of Mercury, earth,
Venus and Mars. The disturbances of
this period will be characterized by
the same kind of phenomena. On and
touching the 18th and l«th suddeo
high temperature, with very threaten
ing barometer, and rain and hail are
most probable. Tornadoes are not im
probable in many sections central and
southward. A period of live days.tak
ing noon on the 19tn as the center, is
a time of great seismic probability. A
casual watch of the world's tele
graphic reports will confirm _the truth
of this, and other similar forecast.
Frosts and much cooler will follow this
period.
A regular storm period is central on
the 2")th, covering the 23d to the 28th,
having moon at greatest declination
north on the 24th, and at first quarter
on the 2?th. Another marked fall of
the barometer will set in the west at
the entrance of this period, followed
closely by cloudiness, higher tempera
ture and rain Storm areas will grow
wider and gain intensity as they
reach central parts of their eastward
march. From altout the 25 to the
28th storms will culminate from the
Mississippi valley eastward to the
Atlantic. High barometer, west
winds, and possibly snow squalls to
the northward need not be a surprise
On the rear tangents of these storm
areas. Much cooler weather with frost
will be unite natural during the last
feur or five nigbts of the montn.
Whatever peculiarr intensity the Mars
period may fasten upon the general
phenomena in March and April, it
will subside, in a great measure, by
the end of April, leaving it is hoped,
A more placid possibility for the
month of May. If the first half of
April is not characterized by frequent
and intense storms of some kind, seis
mic disturbances will be more severe
and general, thus relieving the astro
nomic (train.
FORJELAY
Telegraph Company Sued
for Damage for De
layed Messaft.
Sioux Falls, March .50,—Because a
message announcing the death of bis
mother did not reach him for 56 hours,
too late to attend the funeral. Herman
Wendt has filea a suit in federal court
here for damages in the sum of $2,000.
The Western Union Telegraph company
is defendant in the case, wnich was
transferred from the circuit court in
Walworth county.
(n the petition to federal court, it
is alleged that a sister of the plain
tiff Lydia Wendt on April 25, 190s,
wrote, delivered and paid for a mes
sage at the Western Union office in
Sioux Falls, reading as follows:
"H. Wendt, Java. S. D., care of G.
E. Hedrick -. Mother died this morn
ing, April 25."
It is alleged "the defendant care
lessly and negligently failed to de
liver said message to the plaintiff for
a space of 5fi hours."
On April 26, Lydia Wendt, not re
ceiving a reply from her brother, sent
another message
"To George E. Hedrick, Java,
S. D. *. Where is Herman Wendt
His mother's burial held until Tues
day. If be can arrive in time an
swer."
This last message, it is alleged, was
not delivered for 24 hours and
minutes. It is alleged the first mes
sage should have been delivered at
noon on April 25, and the second at
5:25 the afternoon of April 26, ag the
office of George E. Hedrick at Java
was connected with telephone to the
Western Inion office at Java. Had
either message been delivered on
time, it is alleged th6 plaintiff would
have been able to catch a train and
Ljone to his mother's funeral.
As it was, the petition reads on, the
messages were not delivered promptly
or in time, "thereby causing the plain
tiff great mental pain,suffering aud an
guish, directly resulting from not re
ceiving notice of his mother's death
in time to attend the funeral." Where
fore the plaintiff asks $2,000 damages
from the telephone company,
