To ihe Editor In Saturday eve ning's Sentinel appears a letter from ]r. Lowe, headed with the following «i u ©ry "Shall the Madison high school be 1 scon tinned and all high school stn 1 uts be sent to the normal high s hool at the city's expense?'' The letter closes with the statement hat the voters of Madison will have an opportunity to vote on this propo -ition next Tuesday. The board of education has anthor i /ed no such vote, and it is a strange procedure for a citizen having no ofli iul connection with the public schools make the statement that the uues ti n will be voted on at the school .Motion next Tuesday. Without entering into any extended argument as to the wisdom of con tinuing our high school or merging it the normal school, this is not the tune or way to submit it to the people. There is nothing which comes so close i.t the hearts of our people as the hools, both public and normal. Kvery parent having children is vitally interested in the schools. Before any i Iiange, therefore, is made which con templates a general reorganization, an extended campaign of education should lie made, the matter should be fully discussed in the newspapers and in other ways before the people vote on tie question. There are probably .iiOO or 1,400 voters on school matters men and women—aud in a matter of such importance as the one under dis cussion the total vote should be record ed, or at least a large vote. If the question is presented to the voters in this irregular way and so late, what would it signify if a bundled vote one way or another It would furi ish no authoritative basis for the board to shape its future action. Again, whatever the vote at, this time, it can in no way affect the high school for the coming ^ear. Contracts with tho sapt. and high school teachers have been made which are binding on the Doard of edoca tien. F. H. Files. ANTE-NUPTIAL Miss McGillivray Entertained at luncheon and Dinner Parties.

LETTERS BEAD In Kaufmann Trial Purporting to Have Been Written by Agnes Polreis. Fiandieau, June 13.—At Ihe ooan iug of court yesterday morning. Attor ney Aikens read the transcript of the testimony of two years ago given by J. H. Ramsey of Sioax Falls, now dead. He stated that in May, 1906, Mrs. Kaufmann aDd Agr.es Polreis came in to his store aud Agnes bought a pair of shjes. Peter Erickson tbe same month bought a pair of shoes for the girl. The second pair was charged to Mrs. Kaufmann. At this point. Attorney Aikens of fered in evidence the thiee letters presented to Elizabeth Polreis a few days ago. The first of these was written to a girl friend in Austria and was identified nv Elizabeth Pol reis. The other two she declared were not penned by her sister. Attorneys for the defense made no objection to the admittance of the letters as being in the nandwriting of Agnes Polreis. A. C. C. Azemar of Sioux Falls was called to translate these letters. The first was a friendly letter to nu Austrian woman. The second was from Agnes just after she arrived at the Kaufmann home. She told thai Mrs. Kaufmann had bought her five handkerchiefs and that she was aston isbed by the sights of the city. "1 couldn't have found a better place than I have now. I have such a good bed and such a good mistress. Dear mother, the lady could not be better to me. She is as if she were my mother," wrote the girl. Her mistress,she said, tad wiitteu tbe address of her place iu Sioux Falls. Prof. Azemar said the date of this one was not clear but seemed to be Nov. 22 Agnes did not go to Mrs. Kaufmann's till February 17, 1906, and died there Jane 1, 1906. Tbe third of these purported to be from Agnes to her parents. She ac knowledged a post card from her pa rents, and she said: "I let you know I never felt so well in my life. The mistress and master loo* ao for my health as if I were The mist rugs is so kind. She teacbas me to do things as well as she does them herself. She can 3o all the work so beautifully there is no lady in South Dakota who has everything so nice and so clean. She is so good as my mother would be "I drove down into town with mv umtress with the finest carriage in all South Dakota. I will remain with my mistress my whole life for she is so Rood to me as my mother. She has often told ine to write On "Toss-e^tnination, Prof. Azemar stated he was n it familiar with tin Hut Mrian dialect as spoken in the En opeun home of Agnes Polreis. Asked to iiut out words in the let tor that belong to the vocabulary of a Person of higher education, Attorney Aikens objected to this question and the court sustained it as not a proper subject of expert testimony. "Is there any dispute as to the au tnorship of these letters?" asked Judge Rice. "There is no denial," said Attor ney Null, "that Agnes wrote these letters, but there is a ques'ion as to their composition." The third letter, Prof. Aaamar stat ed. has no date upon it. In answer to a question by Attorney Null, the interpreter said "The second letter is signed by a pe culiar word which seems to mean 'Re spectfully' and after this word, appear the words, 'Good night In giving address of "032 west 7th street." the word street was written "st", the English abbieviation, iDstead of the German '"strasse." The letter stated that Mrs. Kaufmann had written this address. At noon court adjourned until 9 o'clock Mouday morning, as Attorney Aikens declared he had no other wit ness whose testimony be oonld con clude this afternoon.
