Lovers of adventure with
the fever "to get rich quick"
have their eyes turned toward
Alaska, where gold has once
more been discovered.
The remark has been heard
a good many times the past
season that this year has been
a test of good farming the in
terpretation whereof is that
the farmer who kept the
weeds out of his fields, has
plowed deep and carefully and
put in his seed properly, has
good crops this year in spite
of the dry weather at a critical
time. This may be an object
lesson for some.
R. S. Person, who is travel
ing over the state ostensibly
looking at the county, but
evidently on a political mis
sion bent, in an interview at
Aberdeen gave out a state
ment naming several candi
dates, all of whom could, in
his opinion, defeat Senator
Crawford. While not a par
ticular booster for Mr. Burke
he named our congressman as
one to get the scalp of Coe
isaac. He stated that he was
surprised to find the weakness

foe was so exceedingly strong

Official Paper of County and City
If the frost holds off another' a law for a state public util
week, Roberts county will' ities commission, and the
harvest the biggest and best
crop of corn in its history.
This will encourage many
others to raise corn in the
future. Not alone is corn a
profitable crop, but alternat
ing it with small grain, cleans
up the fields from foul weeds
and puts the ground in better
shape for other crops.
l'robably no county in the
state has better material for a
fine showing at the state fair
next week than Hobertscoun
ty, as crops of all kinds are
excellent yet, so far as we
know, as a county there will
be nothing to show that we
are on (earth. This is not as
it should be. A county fair
at which our products muld
best be shown, would have
been a fine thing. A boost
should be made for a county
fair lor next year.
The big public utilities cor
porations want a special ses
sion of the legislature to enact
people of the state are op
posed to calling the legislature
into special session for any
such purpose. Gov. Eberhart,
in advocating the special ses
sion, is taking the side of the
corporations and against the
people, as he always does.
This much in this controversy
should be as plain as day to
every thoughtful person

good time. He closed with the
hope that this will be one of the
most successful and prosperous
school years ever enjoyed in Sis
seton. Rev. R. C. Shearer fol
lowed, but spoke briefly. He
spoke complimentary of the un
selfishness of the school board,
congratulated the school on its
possession of such an able su
perintendent and faculty, and
gave the pupils a sly bit of ad
vice in regard to deportment
The last speaker was W. K. Mor
ris, a great part of whose life has
been spent in educational work
among the Indians in several
states. He admonished the pu
pils to work and not get discour
aged: to do their best and not be
afraid to sweat, as some one has
said that "perspiration comes
before inspiration." The Bible
was recommended as another
guide to success.
The exercises closed with the
singing of "America," all joining,
and a benediction by Rev Leo
Lake. School work was then
taken up, the pupils having doubt
less once more been made to feel
that their success and welfare
is a matter of great interest to

A Small Runaway.
Fred, Clara and Walter Bur
meister were out for a ride Mon
day with their pony, also having
with them Clarence and Albert
Schreck. When about a mile
north of town one side of the
shafts became unfastened from
the buggy and dropped to the
ground. The pony became fright
ened and began to run, and soon
the buggy was overturned and
the children were thrown out
The pony being now clear of the
buggy, made a dash for home
but was caught at Joe Brown's
place. The children were not
much hurt, Clara and Clarence
being the only ones, each having
an injured hand. The pony re
ceived a cut on one foot.
