OEJFUi" REMARKABLE DEMONSTRATION •1VKN AT STATE SCHOOL IX SIOUX FALLS. Sioux Falls, June !». Slight con ception of the progress made by the deaf at the state school for the deaf an be gained without personal ob servation but those who attended the graduation exercises Monday after noon were astounded at what they aw and heard. To the well informed the students aflicted either at birth or afterward with the defect in hearing and fre quently in speech, are commonly known as deaf and dumb, sometimes referred to as "mutes." But the pro ficiency by which they learn to ex press themselves, somewhat differ ently but intelligently, was demon -f'-nted at the exercises. Walter Brown who gave the ad dress of welcome, has learned to speak clearly as he thinks and his address was held to be a masterpiece t»y those who heard it. Catherine ePterson who delivered :he valedictory, spoke warm words of appreciation for ih* aid that ha* been given the students the i.eliool. Students in tbe different grades by means of sign language, or rythiu of poetry, some of lhem little tots, joy ously exhibited the progress they are making, step by step, in the expres sion recognized by the world. One lad after days' instruction with a tube was able to show that he is not deaf and dumb but an impedi ment had retarded his hearing and caused his voice to go unused. He is now speaking freely. One of the most remarkable dem on at rations was that of little Tad Chapman, of Watertown, who has been taught after a year of total deafness, dumbness and blindness, to distinguish some 20 objects and to obey some 25 commands and his progress is exciting all his natural ihildish instincts and the admiration )f all who see him. o Bad Man Fights SIOUX 1 HUM Police Officers Ohio, Jun« 9.—Machine guns were brought into play by po lice and guardsmen today in an at tempt to capture Tom Kellev, 47, who barricaded himself in the attic of a house near the business district. Shots from his revolved killed two patrolmen and he held a small army of officers at bay for hours. Sulphur candles were set in the house in an attempt to smoke him out. The bat cte was still raging at 11:30. Urges Elimination Of All Roosters June 11 Vermillion, June 8.—Saturday, June 11, is appointed "Roster Day" for South. Dakota in a proclamation issued fef the state food commis sioner. As the fertilized eggs is by far the greatest cause of egg spoilage, hav ing been the direct cause of millions of dollars loss annually, best poultry practice everywhere now eliminates the male birds at the close of the matching season. This year, according to Commis sioner Frary, it is especially import ant that these birds be sold before hot weather as the price of eggs makes its necessary that every egg gathered from the nests shall be a good egg and in condition to remain good for several days. Roosters will bring as much in cash now as if kept until next fall, and by selling now the farmer gains not only the saving in feed but, what is vastly more important, insures his eggs against easy spoilage. IN EMPLOYMENT CITY'S DECLINE IN MONTH OF MAX iti S.8 PER CENT. Sioux City, June 9. Unemploy ment in 65 leading cities of the country, among which Sioux City ia included, shows an increase of one half of 1 per cent, from April 30 to May 31, according to the monthly industrial survey of the United States employment service, copies of which have been received here. This is based on actual payroll re turns of 1,4 2 8 firms employing moro han 500 workers each, or an aggra vate of 1,600,000 men. The total In crease in number of men working in 2 cities was 23,012 and the de urease in oo cities was 30,223 or a net loss in employment of 7,211. Sioux City showed a decline of 3.8 per cent in employment in May, ac cording to the report. This is much below the average reported by the .2 other cities which indicates a de cline in the number of workers em ployed. Unsatisfactory transportation con ditions, continued depression In steel and Iron, dullness of the foreign mar ket, high cost of construction, and the general apathy of the buying pub lie are set forth as the leading fac tors in the present situation. In spite of adverse conditions, it is reported there a gratifying preva- lence of business optimism, with a marked tendency to construe the oc casional bright spots as harbingers of an early and permanent Improve ment. Voters Defeat Plan To Advance Interest Rate Mitchell, June 9.—By a vote of three to one, the citizens of this place yesterday voted against rais ing the interest on $125,000 worth of sewer and water bonds from 5 to 6 per cent iu order that the hoods might be sold and tha needed im provements carried out. The administration had urged the increase in the rate of interest, point ing out that the development of the city made the construction of an ad ditional three mllei^ of water mains and a similar amount of sowr work imperative. The bonds, carrying 5 per cent In terest, were authorized a year ago, but because of the condition of the money market the city has been mi able to dispose of them. Yesterday's election means tliai the bonds will remain unsold UD1 the bond market is adjusted to a* similate five per cent municipal a per.
