v'.'f Vol. 21 :!:SK Youngest Glander Child in Most Critical Condition. It would seem as though the Glander family had already had their share of trouble. But no. A few days ago the hired girl was preparing to give the baby, a boy 16 months old, a bath. The water was heating on the stove. The girl put her hand, into the tub and felt the water. Et seemed about the right temperatu re, and the tub was removed, from the stove. The child was placed, in the tub in a sitting posture, and. almost at once began to cry out in pain. While the water was of the right warmth, the bottom of the tub was nearly read hot and the poor little one was horribly bu med so badly in fact, that its life has been dispaired of, and at last report was not out of danger. As well as being burned, the galvanized, iron ap peared to poison the burned places. The child has the con stant care of a nurse, and it is the hope of all that good health will be restored. Base Ball 26 Years Ago. The following is an account of a game of base ball played be tween the Milbank and. Valley teams at Wilmot, on July 22, 1887, written for the. Sisseton Agency Truth Teller, by a couple of Indian boys, who witnessed the game. The item was found in the files of the Browns Valley Reporter, of Aug. 18, 1887: The game was between Browns Valley and Milbank, on the 22nd of July, at Wilmot. The Milbank club was doing well, but some of them were not trying to have a good time or enjoy their game. The Milbank club was the first took the bat. We just think how well the Milbank club doing and see how many score did they make. First, their catcher was take the bat and stand at the home base, but couldn't hit it, and so he was out and then the pitcher, but its out again. We just think that the first baseman was getting mad, and he took t^he bat with much sudden leeiing. First he knocked the ball, but its called out foul, and he was stand at his base again. Of course he was thin.* lie vouId knock the bail as far ar he could., but it will not so did not reach the first base at all, and they all getting skunk though. And then the Valley club took the bats, but they only made one score. Fred Dittes is the man that have a good hand and best catcher among his partner, and. has run :=K After a rest of three months, on Monday morning the school bell again began its warning to Sisseton young people that the beginning of another year of school work was at hand. Soon thereafter 375 happy faces were turned toward the school building, for that was the total enroll ment on the opening day. Supt. W.J. Guthrie deviated from the usual custom of opening school by arranging a program for the high school, eighth and sevench grades, which was given in the assembly room, and enjoyed by all who heard it. The opening number was a song by the school, with Gladys Lewis as accompanist. This was followed by Scripture reading, the first Psalm, by Rev. EC. N. Rudie, and prayer by Rev. R. C. Shearer. There was another song, then Rev. Leo Lake was called upon for a short talk. He be gan his remarks by telling of the interest he had taken in the school from his first arrival here, coming as he did at the time of the commencement exercises in June- Having himself been a teacher and again a student, Mr. Lake was in a particularly good position to give valuable advice to Burned in Taking Bath The Kissewn ning too. Will Barrett is the good hand, and best catcher l'or the fly, also he was stand at left field. S. Y. Gordon is the pitch er, Fred Barrett is catcher Fred Dittes is for the first base and the second baseman was from beyond the Valley, but he was doing well. Paul is the third base, Harry Morris on the right field, and. the short stop was Horace Bowdre. We enjoy this two game. We are hoping they will have played again. Valley club was bet $100, and so was the Milbank, but the Valley club was doing well. After the game was finished all the money was going toward the Valley club. Hoping that the Valley Club was the best player in Roberts coun ty and also we have a good time. We've got a horse named Charlie and a buggy. We were two to gether ride on that buggy. Of course we have a pleasant time on our riding. We just got back to the school house 10 o'clock or a little bit over that and have a good sleep too Municipal Court 1 From two of yours truly, Gabriel D. Robertson. R. A. Cloud. Nat Cline, Gary Farnham and James Dowd were brought be fore Judge Andrews Tuesday, on a charge of furnishing liquor to Indians. Cline waived pre liminary examination and was placed under $600 bonds to ap pear before the October term of the same court. Farnham's case was postponed until next week, and Dowd. was bound over to the October term, bail being fixed at $300. States Attorney Mani was prosecuting attorney and Edgar Bennett was attorney for the defendants. The city administration is making every effort to suppress the illegal sale of liquor. The Meanest Man. S. Hovey of Ashley claims to have found the champion mean man, but doesn't know who he is. Hovey's auto unset and he was pinned underneath. He was not injured, seriously, but was in such a position that he could not release himself. While under the machine he heard a man drive up in a buggy and called to him. When he announced his injuries were not serious the man in the buggy drove on and left him underneath the car. An hour later another man happened by and released Hovey.—Hankin son News. SlssETUN, ROBEKTs »VNTt S. v.. FRIDAY, ^ES'TEMBER 5. 1913-8 Pages Sisseton School Opens Monday Most Auspiciously With Songs by the Pupils and Short Addresses by Public Spirited Citizens of This City STATE SEWS ITEMS Pierre.—The deputy g:m warden working in the south central part of the state reports catching in the act, and arresting four usooners" in the hunting fields near Artesian and all paid fines on the pleas of guilty. The deputies are moving about over the state and as far as possible keep their identity unknown un til they are ready to act and are never located long in one com munity. Hog cholera has broken out in several parts of South Dakota, notably in the Russian settle ments of Hanson county where the plague has wiped out a num ber of herds of swine, some of them numbering as high as 100 head, and in the vicinity of Ash ton, in Spink county, where a disease resembling hog cholera has broken out, but it is stated the disease does not respond to cholera vaccination and treat ment in the Spink county cases, and many farmers doubt if it is really hog cholera. Watertown.—H. L. Loucks, of this city, head of the state grange, is out in a lengthy article announcing his candidacy for the republican nomination for United States senator. Huron.—The Huron Commer cial club is already working on plans for a silver jubilee for the states of North and South Da kota, to be held in this city at the time of the 1914 state fair. It will at that time be twenty-five years since Dakota territory was admitted to the union as the two states of North and South Da kota, and the event will be com memorated in a fitting manner. The entire celebration will be conducted on a gigantic scale, and on the lines of an exposition and home coming. Aberdeen.—The clerk of court's office in Aberdeen and sundry Aberdeen ministers of the gospel are not disposed to find fault with the North Dakota law pro viding for a medical examination of applicants for marriage licen ses. Almost daily one or more couples from nearby point's in North Dakota arrive in Aber deen, visit the court house to procure a marriage license, and then hunt up a preacher to marry them, preferring the incon venience of getting married away from home to the medical exam ination required by the North Dakota law. Pierre.—Articles of incorpora tion were tiled today for the Da kota Eastern Railway company at Webster with a capital of »800, 000. This is to buiid a line of road from Clear Lake, in Clark county, to Watertown, a distance of forty eight miles. The incor porators are William E. Glend, Harry D. Harriett and Edwin Merhagen ot St. Paul, and Harry F. Harpe and Almonte Chilson of Webster. The hunter in the field after the 10th of this month need be careful that he has his hunting license in his possession or he may kind trouble for himself. Under the old law the county game warden secured a list of the hunting licenses and carried the list with him, and when lie found a hunting party out, by his book he would know who was without the proper authori ty. But under the new law the state game warden is a stranger. Parcels Post Prices Paste This in Your Hat for Future Reference.

Success, he said, depends on per sonal effort, not on the teachers upon labor, not upon en iionment. The value of high ideals was held ui and ths possibility of failure shown. The latter should not bring shame, if a true effort had been made. Shame should come from an inability to try again.
