Pat and his little brown mare were
familiar sights to the people of the
town of Garry. The mare was lean,
blind and lame, but by dint of much
coaxing Pat kept her to the harness.
One day while leading her to water
he had to pass a corner where a
crowd of would-be sports had congre
gated. Thiniring to have some amuse
ment at Pat's expense, one called out:
"Hullo, there, Pat. I'm looking for
the real goods. How much is that
mare of yours able to draw?"
"Begorra," said Pat, "I can't say

Pierre.—The county commissioners
of this county have taken up an issue
of old capitol bonds amounting to
$112,000, bearing six per cent by pay
ing $42,000 of the issue, and refunding
$70,000 at five per cent. The $70,000
being taken by B. A. Cummins of this
city. This leaves the bonded debt of
the county at $120,000 in three pay
ments at five per cent and in such
shape that there will be no trouble in
meeting the payments when due. Out
side of this bonded debt the floating
warrant debt is down to about fifteen
thousand dollars and will soon be
wiped out and the county put on a
cash basis.
state Course of Study.
Pierre.—The commission for final
summing up of the course of element
ary study for the schools of the state
has completed its work, and the sum
maries are about ready for the printer.
The principal changes have been in
'.he grammar and arithmetic work,
which has generally been made lighter
for the grade students. Such features
as cube root, and foreign exchange
have been cut out entirely from the
grade work, and put into high school
work. Other features have been
moved up a grade to allow the lower
grades to get along with less of the
heavier work. The United States his
tory work, as a separate study has
been cut out of the lower grades, his
tory to be taught in these grades
through reading and language work,
principally in narratice form, and his
tory as a separate study has been ad
vanced up to the sixth grade. A course
of home economics has been arranged
for the sixth and seventh grades,
which is new for these grades. The
first year work has been materially
lessened making it easier for the little
ones along that line.
Commission for Counties.
Pierre.—While there was more or
less comment about the close of the
last legislative session as to the possi
bility of applying the commission form
of government to the management of
state affairs, it was not taken at all
seriously, but now the adoption of
such a form of control for the affairs
of counties is being pushed as a prac
tical plan in some sections of the state,
the theory advanced being that if such
a system is good for a city government
as an advance in scientific manage
ment of public affairs, the management
of the business of a county, which is
so similar to the management of the
affairs of a city might well be brought
under the same plan. Since the move
ment is under way for commission
government, it is likely to be spread
out in its application.
Laws Are Duplicated.
Pierre.—Another case of oversight
in the passage of bills during the
twelfth session has been discovered
with the publication and distribution
of the session laws. The state has two
laws identical upon the same subject
in regard to the plea of insanity for
defense in criminal cases, providing
that in case a defendant is acquitted
on a plea of insanity his condition
may authorize the court to commit
him to the hospital for the insane un
til he shall become sane. House bills
73 and 2S1 each cover this same sub
ject with like wording, both introduced
by Representative Brackett of Meade
county, one approved on February 7
and the other on March 2.
Goes to Cleveland.
Rapid City.—The resignation of
Charles H. Pulton, president of the
South Dakota School of Mines, to be
come the head of the department of
mining of Case School of Applied Sci
ence, Cleveland. O., is the most impor
tant topic in educational circles, not
only in Rapid City, but in the entire
state of South Dakota.
Date of Hearing Changed.
Pierre.—The hearing by the railway
commission on telephone matters at
Tyndall, has been changed to the first
of June, when the commission will be
at that place and pass upon the ad
visability of allowing the local ex
change to increase its rates.
Penitentiary is Crowded.
Sioux Falls.—The penitentiary is
now so crowded that in some cases
two men have to be placed in the
same cell.
County Seat Contest.
Pierre.—The county seat contest in
the new county of Mellette, soon to be
organized, promises to be a warm one
between the towns of Wood, White
liver and Ogallala.

Forresters From All Points to Gather
at Salem.
Sioux Falls.—Rt. Rev. Thomas
O'Gorman of Sioux Falls, Catholic
bishop of the eastern diocese of South
Dakota, is expected to be one of the
speakers at what will be one of the
greatest gatherings of Catholics to be
held in South Dakota'this year, which
will be held at Salem on Tuesday and
Wednesday. June 13 and 14. The occa
sion will be a meeting at that place of
Foresters from all parts of the state,
one of the objects of the meeting be
ing the organization of a state associa
tion. It is expected that not loss than
500 Catholics from various parts of
the state will be in attendance.
A feature of the gathering will be a
banquet, which will be served Tuesday
evening, June 13, at which John B.
Hanten of Watertown will make the
principal address. Another feature
will be a parade Wednesday forenoon,
June 14, to be followed by services at
the Catholic church. In the afternoon
addresses will be delivered at the Sa
lem opera house by two prominent
laymen from points outside the state.
One address will be in English and the
other in German. An effort is being
made to secure reduced rates on the
railroads for the two days and the
placing of extra coaches on trains en
tering and departing from Salem for
the accommodation of those who will
attend the big gathering.
Husband's Ardor Not Liked.

she had to submit to "bear hugs" until
her health has become permanently in
jured, Mrs. Winifred lngalls has
sought a divorce from Nicholas ln
In her petition for divorce Mrs. ln
galls explains the "bear hugs,"
them tliusly:
"Nicholas, before he went to work
in the morning and in the afternoon
and whenever he returned to the
house, would throw his arms about
my waist, crushing me at times until
the breath almost left my body. At
one time last winter, as he was leav
ing home to go to Okaton, he forced
me to submit to a 'bear hug' that re
sulted in the fracturing of two ribs,
while at another time the hugging was
so severe that circulation was stopped
and my nose bled a stream, the blood
spurting over his clothing."
Answering the petition, lngalls ad
mits the hugging and kissing, but adds
that the treatment accorded his wife
was of the most tender and affection
ate character and that the breaking
of ribs and the gushing of blood from
her nostrils was due to tight lacing, a
habit to which his wife had been ad
dicted during the whole of the five
years of their married life.
Lumber Firm Loses Case.
Sioux Falls.—A jury in the state
circuit court of the new county of
Tripp has, after great deliberation and
after a hot legal battle, fixed the value
of an ear. The plaintiff in the action
was Eugene Smith, a minor, his guard
ian, Perva Smith, having represented
him in the trial. The defendant was
Floete Lumber company. The plaint
iff lost an ear while working in the
yards of the company, the injury be
ing caused by a pile of lumber break
ing from its supports and falling upon
him. The plaintiff instituted the ac
tion for the purpose of recovering
damages in the sum of $1,935, but af
ter a prolonged fight and after the jury
had considered the evidence at great
length the plaintiff was awarded a
judgment in the sum of $1,200.
Boy Hero Drowns.
Aberdeen.—George Conrad, aged 13,
son of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Conrad, was
drowned in a pond near Aberdeen.
George Conrad and a younger brother
were swimming in the pond when the
younger boy got in too deep and was
in danger of drowning. George went to
his rescue and succeeded in getting
his brother out, but was drowned him.

"I was taken with the Itch In April,
1904, and used most everything. I
had a friend pay mo a visit from
Cumberland, and she advised me to
use Cuticura Remedies which I did.
The cure was certainly quick, and I
use them to this day. I had it terri
bly under my knees. I only used one
box of pills, but two boxes of Cuti
cura Ointment, and I use the Cuti
cura Soap all the time. I hope this

In a later letter Miss Johnson adds:
"The trouble began with an eruption
under my knees, and extended up
wards toward my waist, until I was
not able to sit down. It kept a con
stant itching and burning all the time,
night and day. I went to my doctor,
but he could do me no good after I
do not know how many medicines he
gave me, and then told me I would
be compelled to go to a skin special
ist, which I positively refused to do. I
cried all the time. Finally I made
up my mind to try Cuticura Rem
edies, and tried Cuticura Pills, Oint
ment and Soap, and was entirely
cured of the itching three days after
I started using them. The healing
took about eight days. I consider
Cuticura Remedies marvelous, and
would recommend them everywhere."

HE HAD $400.00 IN CASH IN 1903
NOW WORTH $8,000.00.
My parents were originally Cana
dians from Essex County, Ontario. I
was born in Monroe County, Michigan,
from which place I moved to Red Lake
Falls, Minnesota, where I farmed for
22 years. I sold my fa?m there in the
summer of 1903 and in September of
that year came to Canada with my
wife and eight children. I had about
$400 in cash, team of horses, a cow, a
few sheep and some chickens. 1 took
up a quarter section of land near Jack
Fish Lake, Meota P. O., and later on
purchased for $2,000.00 an adjoining
quarter section. I have now 48 head
of cattle, a number of horses, good
buildings and consider my holding is
worth at least $8,000.00. My children
have raised from $300 to $500 worth
of garden truck each year since we
have been here. I have never had a
poor crop and have never had one
frosted. My wheat has averaged from
25 to 30 bushels per acre with one or
two years considerably more. My
oats have always yielded well up to 50
bushels per acre and once or twice as
high as 85. My cattle have never been
stabled in winter, and do not need it.
I consider that this country offers bet
ter opportunities for settlers than any
where I have ever been. I am sure
that almost any person can come here
and buy land at say $15.00 per acre
and pay for It In one crop. My ex
perience is that If a man farms his
land in the right way he is not likely
to have his crop frosted.
Most of the settlers in my district
are Americans and Canadians and I
know lots of them who came here with
little or no capital who are now do
ing well, but I do not know of any who
have left through disappointment, or
becoming discouraged, have returned
to their former homes.
