Tom—Why, I heard her father kick ed you out every time you called. Dick—Yes but he doesn't kick me as hard as he used to. Socially Launched. In his native town Jimmy had al ways been most popular with young and old, but when he was sent away to boarding school, he was for a time too homesick to make friends. His first letter was little more than a •wail. "I'm way behind the other boys in everything," he wrote, dolefully. 'Tisn't only studies, but it's gtnyna eium and banjos and everything. I don't believe they'll ever have much use for me." But the second letter, written after a week In the new school, was quite different In tone. "Im all right," he wrote to his mother. 'The boys say they're proud to have me here. I can stretch my mouth half an Inch wider than any other boy in school, and my feet are the longest by a full Inch. So you needn't worry about me any more."— Youth's Companion. Fine Scheme. Wife—Please match this piece of silk for me before you come home. Husband—At the counter where the sweet little blonde works?

FEED YOUNG GIRLS Must Have Right Food While Growing, Great care should be taken at the critical period when the young girl is just merging into womanhood that the diet shall contain that which is up building and nothing harmful. At that age the structure is being formed and if formed of a healthy, sturdy character, health and happiness will follow on the other hand un healthy cells may be built in and a sick condition slowly supervene which, if not checked, may ripen into a chronic condition and cause lifelong suffering. A young lady Bays: "Coffee began to have such an efTect on my stomach a few years ago that I finally quit using it It brought on headaches, pains in my muscles, and nervousness. 'I tried to use tea in its Etead, but found its effects even worse than those I suffered from coffee. Then for a long time I drank milk at my meals, but at last it palled on me. A friend came to the rescue with the suggestion that I try Postum. "I did so, only to find at first, that I didn't fancy It. But I had heard of so many persons who had been benefited by its use that I persevered, and when I had it made right—according to di rections on the package—I found it grateful in flavour and soothing and strengthening to my stomach. I can find no words to express my feeling of what I owe to Postum! "In every respect it has worked a wonderful improvement—the head aches, nervousness, the pains In my side and back, all the distressing 6ymptoms yielded to the magic power of Postum. My brain seems also to ehare In the betterment of my phys ical condition It seems keener, more alert and brighter. I am, in Bhort, In better health now than for a long while before, and I am sure I owe It to the use of your Postum." Name given by Postum Company, .Creek, Mich. "There's a reason."

The bishop was an angler and was keen on trout fishing. Early tn the season. If not the opening day, he re sponded to the lure of the rippling brook. As he crept softly through the elder thicket that bordered the stream he had the good fortune to hook a trout that put up a stormy tight. Evidently the fish had no mind to grace the creel of even an apostolic expert. The guide held his breath. It was not possible for him to get near enough through the brush to help the bishop and the enemy. He could only watch the fight and hope for the best The struggle culminated In a swift Jerk that landed the dripping old war rior up in the branches of a maple which towered above the alders—not an unusual experience for an angler, but the first of the kind that had fall en to the lot of the bishop. Well—he was always seeking experience and now he had It This, however, was different from casting and the result was dim The line snapped, the bril liant and dashing Fontlnalls dropped back Into the brook and with an in solent wave of his tall said as plainly as words, "By, by, old boy." The bishop and guide looked at each other. Then the bishop said to the guide in the earnest and appealing tone with which he was wont to stir the emotions of his congregation, "John, you say It." Cherished Bell. The oldest bell in the United States, possibly In the Americas, la In the small village of Bast Haddam, Conn. It bears the date "A, D. 803." Presumably It came from an old monastery in Spain, and was prob ably brought to this country as bal last or old iron In some sailing ship. Later It was bought in a Junk shop, and now it hangs In a belfry In the rectory at East Haddam. The vicis situdes through which this old bell passed doubtless were varied. Before the discovery of the new world, be fore the first printed book, before the Norman conquest of England, before Charlemagne, It called men to pray ers, at a time when the light of learn ing In western Europe was but a spark In the ashes of dead civilization. It was cast in an age when men were fearful, when those who were not strong were furtive—and today It rests in a peaceful New England ham let. Clumsy Compliment. He was a flatterer, but a clumsy one. Noting that the girl of his heart possessed beautiful teeth that shone like Ivory, he ventured to pass a com pliment. "Dearest," he whispered, leaning over the music rack, "your teeth are like piano keys." Freezing him with an Icy glance, she turned on her heel. "Sir, how dare you Insult me." "Insult you?" "Yes, Insinuate that my teeth are as large as piano keys." And without another word she left the parlor, leaving him crestfallen and be wildered. ICE KUST BE PURE PROPRIETORS OF HOTELS, SODA FOUNTAINS, ETC., ARE GIV EN WARNING. OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST From the Capital Ci'.y, the .Various State Institutions and Dif ferent Parts of the State. Vermillion.—A large amount of Ice has been harvested and packed every winter in South Dakota that is of ques tionable character. The food depart ment, up to the present date, has been dealing with other problems and has not been able to consider the vital question of the character of the ice offered for pale to the public. The time has come, however, when the depart ment will assume an aggressive atti tude with regard to the matter of ice which is impure. The department will object to the sale of ice as food, or to be added to food, in South Dakota which is not pure from a sanitary standpoint. Ice is unfit for food under the following conditions: 1. If it has been taken from a pond or stream which is contaminated by sewage from cesspools, outhouses, barns, kitchen wastes, etc. 2. If during the process of freezing it has not been protected from tres passers by a portable fence or other suitable means. Ice which is located at a considerable distance from hu man habitation and out of common range of trespassers would, of course, .ieed no such protection. 3. If it has been handled and trans ported under unclean and unsanitary conditions. Dealers In ice, hotels, boarding houses, restaurants and proprietors of soda fountains are warned against the sale of ice as food, or in food and drink, which Is contaminated by sew age or from other causes. Correct Measures. Vermillion.—That boxes of berries must be labelod with their true meas ure after July 1, is a statement in cluded in a bulletin issued by Alfred N. Cook, state food commissioner. He says: The net weight law, known as the Curtiss bill (also as senate bill No. 47), imposes the following require ments: 1. Each and every package of food must be stamped to show the true net weight, measure or numerical count. 2. It must bear the name of the manufacturer or wholesaler, together with the address of the same. 3. The true grade, or class, of the product must be given. 4. All goods in the hands of retail ers and wholesalers within the state on July 1, 1911, are exempt and do not come under the terms of the law. According to the opinion of the attorney general, this provision does not apply to goods outside of the state. The department will allow varia tions on account of small unavoidable errors in weighing, if the error is found to be as often above as below the state weight, and will also take into consideration shrinkage due to climatic conditions in case of pack ages put up under normal conditions from normal stock. Pending the establishment of stand ards the state food and drug commis sioner requests wholesale firms doing business in South Dakota to comply as nearly as possible with that part of the law requiring the true class or grade of the product to be plainly marked upon the container. Money in Dakota Treasury. Pierre.—The statement of condition of the state treasury for April 30 shows that on that date there was a total of $908,612 in all funds. Of this the eneral fund carried $274,278, which means that the state will pay cash for some time to come, as that amount will easily carry through until the re ceipts from the June call for taxes come in. The twine plant fund shows a surplus of $22,900 the game fund $18,369, but this will be reduced when the department begins to pay for the birds and animals which they will se cure for stocking the state. The com mon school income fund shows $415, 014, which will go out of the treas ury in June for the benefit of the schools of the state, and will material ly reduce the total cash on hand. This fund will likely go to over $500,000 before it is distributed. Vessey Guest of Honor. Parker.—The Men's Sunday Even ing club of the Presbyterian church, Rev. William Wallace pactor, recently held a banquet in the church parlors. Toasts were responded to by members of the club. Gov. Vessey, who was the guest of honor, was heatrily wel comed by the club, and responded with a. splendid address. For Tablet to Kittredge. Sioux Falls.—A movement to raise a fund by voluntary subscription for the purchase of a suitable tablet to the memory of the late ex-Senator A. li. Kittredge has been inaugurated by M. E. Walton of Huron, secretary of the Republican primary organization Df South Dakota. Although the place for erecting the tablet has not yet been considered, it is believed it will be placed in the new state capitol building it Pierre. Mr. Walton has sent a con tribution to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader as a starter for the fund. express Kates Fixed. Pierre.—The state railway depart ment has sent out notices of the new express schedules fixed by the com mission. and it is expected that the different companies will at once go into the United States court in a fight against the rates fixed. The general reduction as fixed by the commission is 30 per cent below tne rates which were in effect January 1, 1909. The commission has fixed a number of hearing on different matters at dif ferent places over the state. One at Canova, on the question of stock yard facilities at Salem for the investiga tion of an accident causing the death of a woman at Tyndall to look into the matter of telephone rates at Elk Foint to investigate an accident which caused the death of a brakeman at Bradley in regard to a connecting track between the Minneapolis and St. Lou is and the Milwaukee lines at Pier pont in regard to telegraph service at that place and at Troy, on the Min neapolis and St. Louis line, in regard to establishing an agent at that place. Litigation Over Ditch. Pierre.—The state engineer's depart ment has issued a permit to Fred C. Doody and Adolph L. Durnard for the right to appropriate the waters of False Bottom creek, In Lawrence coun ty. This application has been subject to a great amount of litigation, and the permit, has been granted subject to the decision of he courts in the matters in volved In the litigation. Referendum on Headlight Law. Referendum petitions have been printed and will be put in circulation to again submit the electric headlight law to a vote of the people. This law was voted on last fall and defeated by a large majority. This means that it will again be voted on in 1912, and the railroads will not equip their en gines with electric headlights accord ing to the provisions of the bill. Pardoned by Vessey. Pierre.—Gov. Vessey has granted a pardon to Henry Baker, who was sent from Campbell county on a charge of adultery. TO PREVENT FIRES. Black Hills People Will Keep Down Forest Blazes. Hot Springs.—Fire losses in the Black Hills forests will likely be great ly reduced this summer by the pre ventive measures being taken by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy rail rood. The company has ordered a number of motor cars, and it is plan ned to have men with tools on one of these cars follow each train on the Black Hills division during dry weath er. Where cinders have started the grass to burning it will be at once detected. One of these cars has ar rived at Edgemont and is being tried out. It is of the Fairbanks-Morse pat tern, and has a speed capacity of 40 miles per hour. The forest service has also taken precautions for saving time in detect ing and fighting fires as soon as they are manifest. The forest office at Custer is installing a signal station on Harney peak, the highest in the Black Hills range, and the Deadwood forester has established a similar look out on Custer peak in the northern hills. Edgemont a Feeding Point. Edgemont.—The Burlington has de cided to make this a feeding station, and to accommodate shippers have ordered the erection of stock yards which will accommodate an entire trainload of cattle. Twenty more pens will be built and five loading chutes put in. Local producers and dealers in hay and feed anticipate a brisk market as a result. Attorney Shot Down. Itedfield.—William Issenhuth, state's attorney of Spink county, was shot and seriously wounded by William Tomsha here. Issenhuth was struck in the hip and hand, but will recover. Tomsha was examined by the insanity board a short time ago, but was dis charged. He blamed Issenhuth for instituting these proceedings. Milliard Wight of Aberdeen, head of the Wight Theater company, pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of having infringed on copyrights and was sentenced by Judge Charles Wil lard to a fine of $300. Wight for two years past has been engaged in pre senting royalty plays in South Dakota towns without having paid a royalty, escaping this by advertising the plays under other names than the original titles. Improvement on Trolley Cart. Electrical engineers are proposing that trolley cars be equipped with ball bearings In order to let the cars coast as much as possible and thus reducs the consumption of energy. Use for Street Rubbish. City authorities of Amsterdam ar« now considering the conversion of the street rubbish as a mass Into combu* tible briquets for heating boilers. ,The Prospeot.

MAN Eskimo Tested Efficacy of Telephone Scheme, and Realized He Had Been Deceived. An interesting story is told regard* Ing the efforts of an Eskimo to con struct a telephone line. The Eskimo, came Into possession of a piece of wire of considerable length and never having seen wire before he asked. Professor McMillan of the Peary north pole expedition what It was and what It was for. He was told that tho white man strung It on poles stuck in the ground and a voice talking to an instrument at one end could be heard at the other end. After some search the next morning the Eskimo was found to be engaged in telephone construction work of his own. He stuck some sticks In the ground and hung his wire on them. He held one end of the wire to his mouth and talked to It at the top of his voice. Then he ran as fast as he could to the other end and held the wire to' his ear with the exceptatlon of hear lng his own words repeated. When he failed to hear any sounds the expression on his face revealed his opinion of hla white friend. "Kicking the Bucket." When we speak facetiously of some one of whom we have no reverence as having "kicked the bucket" wo employ a phrase that would seem to bo a piece of latter-day elang, but as a matter of fact, It dates back to old England, when, about the year 1725, one Bolsover hung himself to a beam while standing on the bottom of a bucket and then kicked the bucket away. Although at first used only la cases of suicide, it has been applied In the course of years to any death without distinction. Strictly Business. Mrs. Knicker—Did you hold a short session with your husband? Mrs. Bocker—Yes, I merely had him pass an appropriation bill. E E A trial package of 'Munyon's Paw Paw Pills will be sent free to anyone on re quest. Address Professor Munyon, S3d & Jefferson Sis., Philadelphia, Pa. If you are in need of medical advice, do not fail to write Professor Munyon. Your communi cation will be treated in strict confidence, and your case will be diagnosed as care fully as though you had personal inter view. Munyon's Paw Paw Pills are unlike ell other laxatives or cathartics. They coax the liver into activity by gentle methods. They do not scour, they do tripe, they do not weaken, but they do start all tho secretions of the liver nixi stomach in a way that soon puts these organs in a healthy condition and corrects constipation. In my opinion constipation is responsible for most ail ments. There are 26 feet of human bowels, which is really a sewer pipe. When this pipe becomes clogged the whole system becomes poisoned, caus ing biliousness, indigestion anil impure blood, which often produce rheumatism and kidney ailments. No woman who suffers with constipation or any liver ailment can expect to have a clear complexion or enjoy good health. If 1 had iny way I would prohibit the sale of nine-tenths of the cathartics that are Row bc**2 cold for the reason thsit thejf soon destroy the lining of the stomach, setting up serious forms of indigestion, and so paralyze the bowels that they re fuse to act unless forced by strong purgatives. Munyon's Paw Paw Pills are a tonie to the stomach, liver and nerves. They invigorate instead of weaken they en rich the blood Instead of Impoverish it they enable the stomach to get all the nourishment from food that is put into it. These pills contain no calomel, no dope they aro soothing, healing and stimulating. They school the bowels to act without physic. Regular size bottle, containing 45 pills, 25 cents.
