In one of the hardest fought games of the season the Milbank team defeated the Sisseton team on the local gridiron last Satur day. Local followers of the game remembered the contest between these two teams early in the sea son when the score was six points for each team, but they had not reckoned on one S. Malsed, a ntw pupil in the commercial de partment of the Milbank high school. He was a tower of strength for the visitors and Ithe local team could not hold him. However, it was not a walkaway for the visitors. The local team fought gamely and the visitor® were unable to score during the first quarter. The quarters were long, fifteen minutes each, and the weight of the visitors finally told. It was a case of a man against a boy for by no stretch of the imagination could the new player on the Milbank team be called a boy. This was the fint high school game the locals had lost this year. They had played Milbank six to six earlier in the season and had played two games with Browns Valley, one in favor of Sisstton by a 6 to 0 score, and the other a tie with neither side scoring, thus leaving Sisse ton ahead for the season with the Valley. The referee for the Milbank game was Prof. Simpson and the umpire Supt. Haig, both oi Wheaton. They gave the best of satisfaction to both teams. Death of H. N. Steele. After a lingering illness, II.
