Vol. 21 Crowd Town Lot Sale. New Railroad Causes Some Stir up North. The Vehlen paper has the fol lowing to say regarding the sale of lots on the new line of rail road: sale of town August llfchi were present business and was lively, At the opening lots at Rosholt on about 5(X) people and the bidding fo residence locations Corner lots trict, sold and the total sales amounted to $11,000. Several purchasers had their building material on the ground and were prepared to begin building operations at once. in the business dis as high as $750 per, .it This town has a splendid future before it and those who have located here are fortunate. Tuesday, August 12th, the sale of lots took place at New Ellington and while the lots went a shade cheaper, the aggregate sales amounted to considerable more than those at Rosholt. The farmers of this vicinity are great ly interested in this town and it is a safe guess that New Etting ton will be prosperous and a live trade center. The sale at Claire City was not so well attended, consequently fewer lots were sold and at a lower price. Yesterday was sale day for Vehlen, and everybody was out to listen to the Southland Orch estra and. seize the opportunities. The Southland Orchestra came in from Claire City Wednesday evening and entertained a good crowd until late in the evening. Each and every one of these gentlemen is an artist in his line, and their efforts were fully ap preciated by the people. ELEVATOR BUILDING The Osborne-McMilien Eleva tor Co., have concluded, to build an elevator before the road gets in and yesterday arrived with their elevator crew, ready to go to work. They have employed Mr. C. Ü. Thompson to transfer their lumber for them and with his line of motor trucks, he will soon have the material on the ground. Inside lots sold as high as $700 and the corner north of the post office sold for $1250. More lots were sold at private sale after the auction than during the sale and better prices were paid. Now let us all boost the town. He Raised the Stack. As usual when something real .is tobe accomplished, John Chris tiansen was called into action last Friday to erect the smoke stack over the new engine at the electric light plant. The stack was about seventy feet from tip bo tip when assembled and weighed about 1600 pounds, and while 1600 pounds is not or dinarily hard to handle the area which it covered made it slight- Threshing Discloses Some Good Yields Those who have been pessi mistic regarding the crop outlook, fearing that the hot, dry weather in June had greatly injured it and have been wearing a "down, in the mouth" look for some time, have broadened out their coun tenances and are now wearing a smile, owing to the very gratify ing reports being turned in by threshers. We have gathered up the reports of a few of the first to thresh and considering the entire season, the returns are gratifying, and a little above the general average yield. The fol lowing reports have been gath ered to date: Andrew Over by, wheat 16 bushels Win. Burn stien, blue stem 18 bushels and velvet chaff 20 bushels: L. T. Rockney, wheat 15 bushels and R. G.

The check, drawn on a Sisseton Bank, came back en dorsed "no funds." The fellow represented himself to be a tele phone lineman in the employ of the Sisseton station and his re- Sisseton.

Another Indian in Trouble. Little Evidence Against Him. Mary Bear, living near the Agency, lost a horse last week, and suspicion soon rested upon John Williams, who was arrested. He denied the charge against him and J. J. Batterton was se cured to defend him. The evi dence was such that Justice Prindiville bound Williams over to the next term of the circuit court, bail being fixed at $300 which was furnished. Horse stealing appears to be growing quite common in this county, and States Attorney Mani says he will stamp it out if such a thing is possible. STATE NEWS ITEMS On inquiry from Turner coun ty, the attorney general holds that Sunday baseball is illegal in this state, regardless of the matter of an admission charge or payment of the players. While chapter 234 of the laws of 1907 was supposed to allow Sunday baseball when no charge is made, it is held this act did not repeal sections 42 and 45 of the penal code which prohibit public sports on Sunday, regardless of the matter of admission. Tiie express companies are in for more grief in this state in the order by the state railway com mission requiring them to make monthly station reports of their business in this state, which will give che amount and character of business of the companies at each station in South Dakota. The commission has also issued an order requiring the express companies to make iu connection with their annual report, a de tailed showing of their business in the state, and their method of distribution of charges oh the business transacted in the state. The state tax commission has ordered a reassessment of moneys and credits in seventeen different towns of the state, not being satisfied with the showing. The principal places affected are Pierre, Huron and Madison, all the others being smaller towns. The state tax commission has fixed August 23 as the date for hearing any protests which coun ty officials or individuals who desire to present protests in re gard to the assessment of coun ties.

Ink stains: If on white wash goods wash in lemon juice and salt. If on colored goods, soak in sweet or sou milk for several days, or use ammonia water. Equal parts of alum and cream of tartar will take out ink stains without injuring the color of the materia!. Use a ripe tomato for ink on table linen. To remove indelible ink stains use ammonia, or cyanide of potash (a poison) 1 part in 25 of water, after first soaking the spot in soft water. Fresh ink on carpets disappears after an application of salt fol lowed by rubbing with a cloth dipped in milk. To clean white serge use a decoction of soap wort roots.

The Nebraska legislation lias enacted a nine-hour working la.w for women. Further more, no woman other than those working for a public service corporation, meaning a telephone company, is permitted to work after 10 p. m. A curious phase of the situ ation is as to the effect the new law will have upon the servant question, both in cities and upon" farms. The law makes no dis tinction except in favor of female employees of public ser vice concerns. Under its pro visions a servant who begins her kitchen work at 6 a. in., and stops an hour at noon, will not only be entitled to quit work at 4 p. m., but both the girl and her mistress will be liable to heavy fines if that hour is not made quitting time. The farmer members of the legislature enacted the law and it is possible after all that the farmers are going to be harder hit than are the town people. Female labor on the farm is a. hard proposition at best. Under the new law, if the farm girl gets up in time to get breakfast for the farmer and his hands, she will be able to quit work about 2 p. m. Summer. While summer days grew brown and old A wizard delved in mines of gold. No idler he—by night, by day, He smiled and sang and worked away And, misers scorning, with free hand He cast his gold across the land. T.ie maples caught it ere it fell Witch hazel turned before its spell The golden rod's high plumes of green Were feathered with its golden sheen, While barb'r.v bush and bittersweet Wore berries golden as the wheat. Still smiling o'er the trees he wound I^ong russet scarfs, with crimson bound He hung a veil of purple haze O'er distant fields where cattle graze He bathed the sun in amber mist, And steeped the sky in amethyst. —Selected.
