grave problem confronting the
serious-minded men in the petroleum
to keep pace
production with the seven-league strides
of the demand
ten years the production of crude
in the United States has increased only
96 per cent, while during the same period
the output of gasoline has increased 560
The demand for no other commodity
in general use has increased to a degree
that even approximates the mark reached
Ill ten years the Standard Oil Company
(Indiana) has increased its output of
gasoline from 150 million gallons to more
than 600 million gallons a years.
It is apparent that this could not have
been accomplished except by intensive
application of improved, scientific
methods of refining.
As a matter of fact, the priced gasoline
is held in bounds only by the sheer
force of science.
Except for the abftttf of such institutions
as the Standard Oil Company (Indiana)
to make a wide range of useful products
from that part of the crude oil which
is not used to make gasoline, you would
be paying a much higher price for gaso
line than you pay .today.

Clear Lake.—Two women Judges,
with a man an chairman, will serve
as an election board in each of the
voting precinctB of Clear Lake at the
time of the annual municipal election
on April 20.
Mitchell.—Fred Morgan, formerly
of Mitchell, who was tried Jast win
ter in circuit court on charge of in
cest, must serve tho sentence of three
years imposed upon him by Judfie F.
n. Smith. The supreme court haa just
affirmed the verdict in the lower
court. H® Is at liberty on $1,600
Sioux Falls.—George Maier, local
druggist, was freed by a Jury In mu
nicipal court of a charge of selling in
toxicating liquor, after 20 minutes'
deliberation. The defendant, who op
erates a drug store on the East Side,
had sold toilet water as a beverage,
it was alleged.
Wagner. Ralph Jansen, who
claims Sioux City as his home, haB
been bound over to the district court
by Judge Eggers, charged with break
ing into and entering with intent to
rob the Sparks garage and Grim
hardware store. His partner in the
affair was Ed. Ely, of this place. Both
are former inmates of the reform
school, where they became acquaint
ed, Ely has been returned to the re
form school. Both are still in their
MADISON PUBLIC LIBHARY.
The Congressional Record .is being
received daily, beginning with the la
sue for April 2.
"Kazan," by Curwood, and "Heart
of the Ancient Woods," by Roberts,
are animal stories for grown-ups, but
equally popular with boys.
"Young Visitors," by Daisy Ash
ford, is the much-discussed produc
tion of a 9-year-old child. The Lon
don Bookman says of it: "No person
who loves children and humor should
fail to read this."
"The Man of the Forest" Is Zane
Grey's latest and best book.
"The Psychology of Bolshevism,"
by John Spargo, helps us to an under
standing of the worst mix-up in his
tory. Simple, practicable, with a r.eal
remedy for the trouble.
"Analyzing Character," by Kath
erine Blackford, needs no explanation
to those interested in the art of fit
ting each man into his right place in
"Mary Oliver," by May Sinclair, the
straight-forward, unanalyxed story of
a woman's life and emotions, and
"Lamp in the Desert," by Ethel Dell,
a thrilling love story of India, are
both on the Bookman's list of the
most popular books of the month, and
so, too, are the following two books:
"Education of Henry Adams," cn
autobiography which is as interesting
as fiction and equally popular.
"Seven Purposes," by Cameron, Is
not only thrillingly Interesting, but
tremendously inspiring in moral and
spiritual significance. Whether or
not you accept this as a message from
beyond the grave, as a study in
psychic phenomena, it Is undoubtedly
worth while. It also sets forth a new
philosophy ot life, of right human re
lationships and world progress.
"Christopher and Columbus" is the
story of two twin girls, charming,
lively and adventurous. Rollicking
fun of the highest order, with the
conventionally happy ending.

court here Calvin W. Cope, who was
convicted by a jury of obtaining mon

Dell Rapids. The Dell Rapids
board of education has hit upon a
plan for paying the school teachers
an adequate salary during the next
school year. Contracts will be enter
ed into with the instructors for a
twelve-month period at $100 per
month. This applies to the grade
teachers, the high school teachers
being paid on the same basis a higher
Sioux Falls.—John Freitag, 35, of
Delmont, S. D., was found guilty by
a federal court jury here today of
evading physical examination when
summoned to appear before a local
draft board under the selective serv
ice act. Freitag refused to employ
counsel and was reluctant to testify,
saying it was against his belief to go
to war and for this reason he did not
appear for examination. Sentence
was to be passed by District Judge El
liott next week.
ECONOMY IS THE WATCHWORD.
Automobile Users Included.—The
General Motors Corporation foresaw
this when they took over the Chevro
let automobiles, and remodeled them
to what they are today.
Economy As to First Cost.—Only
for the "490" touring car,
equipped with all the modern con
veniences any higher priced car has.
Economy In Operation.—The gas
consumption will average over 20
miles per gallon. Oil consumption,
one-fourth that of any other make
Economy la Up-Keep.—The con
struction of the Chevrolet today is
much sturdier. Body and fenders be
ing made of heavier steel and better
braced. The old gear and spring
troubles are overcome. Besides, in
every county is placed a distributor,
who must have a sufficient stock of
parts on hand to supply the demand.
This saves delays in repair work and
reduces expenses in ordering and
C. O. D. charges.
Economy In Handling Credits.—
Most important at present, is that
the General Motors Corporation have
perfected a credit plan whereby it
can take care of its dealer's paper.
So don't hesitate (o buy that Chevro
let. We can sell it to you on the
monthly payment plan or on time
notes up to ten months. At from 6
per cent to 7 per cent, according to
the time the paper must be carried.
Come in and let us figure with
you and also show you the many
points of advantage the Chevrolet
now have over competing makes.

Fifty thousand people publicly thank
Doan's. What other kidney remedy
can give this proof of merit, honesty
and truth? Home testimony must be
true or it could not be published here.
Read this Madison recommendation.
Then insist on having Doan's. You
will know what you are getting.
August Woltha, retired farmer,
Grant Ave., says: "Doan's Kidney
Pills are the best remedy I have ever
used. My kidneys were out of order
and I suffered a lot from backache,
especially when I bent over or lifted
anything. I had such sharp pains in
my back I could hardly straighten
up. My kidneys annoyed me at night,
acting too frequently. Doan's Kid
ney Pills, which I got at Smith's Drug
Store, regulated my kidneys and
strengthened my back. They helped
me in every way."
