CITIZEN) NATIONAL BANK Sisseton, South Dakota O I E S i. JOSEPH MARVICK, President HENRY HELVIO, Ceshler STANDARD J. W. FEATHERSTON Editor and Publisher Official Paper of County and City Based upon, certain tulk of Coe I. Crawford the opinion is rapidly gaining ground throughout the state that it is his intention to bolt the re publican party if he is turned down at the primary qlection and come outi'ag a bull moose •candidate tor re-election to his present job. Well, judg ing by the talk one hears, he might just as well lay down -now and concede the nomimi xtion to the Hon. Charles H. j'CBurke, the man whom the ||*upeople delight, to honor. Do you ask why Mr. Burke is held in such high regard by the people of South Dakota? It. is easily answered. It is -r because he has never been known to violate his prom ises to the people has never «»»found it necessary to explain any of his actions, as is so common with trickster poli ticians because he is the soul of honor and is a true gentle man in all of the departments of life. His political enemies cocede all of this. And cou pled to this is his well known faithfulness and ability as a public servant. It is for these reasons that the voters of the state are going to pro mote him to the senate. In contrast to the above men tioned attitude of Crawford it is interesting to note that If rJBurke says thstt as for him he will cheerfully abide by the decision of Ä»e patty at the primary election and sup port the nominee. Gtov. Eberhart of Minneso ta must have felt like thirty eentethe other 6ay. He had kicked ex-Öbv. Ond off from the board of regents of the •täte university for purely sel fish and political' reasons, which caused much uncom- A politics. Had the governor but waited a day or two in his decision to oust Lind, he would have been saved the mortification brought upon himself in the matter, as Mr. Lind's resignation at the very moment the governor was acting was speeding its way from Mexico. .Just across the line in Min nesota the telephone com panies give the people a much lower toll rate from nine o'clock at night until certain hours in'the morning than is in force in the day time, while in this state the same companies soak it to us for full rates during the entire twenty-four hours, excepting in a few favored localities. Evidently some legislation along this line is needed to remedy this rank injustice. .. Socialist Items Only a partial county ticket was filed and vacancies, except states attorney, superintendent, county judge and surveyor, will be filled by the chairman. Representatives, J. F. O'Gra dy and Nathan Gorsuch senator, E. Berg commissioner, Peter Moe register, L. C. Gleason sheriff, George A. Morehead coroner, Wm. Henry Still, are part of the ticket, as filed. We expect to surprise some body with our vote as registra tion is very high in many pre cincts, compared to former vote. Several speakers are expected here later on, Rev. E. P. John son of Oldham, for U. S. senate, will preach here and Helen Keller, the blind, deaf-mute, who has learned five languages and completed more than an or dinary education, will lecture. Miss Keller ii bow head of "the Bureau of Charities, under a socialist mayor at Schenectady, N. Y.

Then they join hands, ami. raising their arms as high as possible, they sing: "Oranges and lemons" say the of St. Clements, Here comc-s a candle to light "Doubt It"—A Card Game, Any number of persons can play this game of cards, which should be played with two packsi The cards are dealt around in turn one at a time till all are given out. The player at the left of the dealer selects a card from his hand and places it in the center of the table, face down, naming the num ber of spots or rank of the card. It is not necessary to mention the suit or color. The next player puts down in the same way. saying It Is the next in or der. but whether he has it or not he may put any card he chooses, still de daring It to be the next card needed. If any member of the party thinks it Is not the next card he can shout. "Doubt It!" and the card is examined. If It proves not to be as declared the one who played It must take all the cards on the table. If the card proves to be as declared the doubter must take all the cards. The oblect Is to get rid of one's cards, and the one who is first out of them wins. If a player tries to cheat by putting down two cards at once and is discovered he is obliged to take oil the cards played. The playing should be done quickly. Parts of the Body.

At the word "head. which they manage to sing just as the last child of the train passes, they drop their arms and catch her around the neck. She is then taken to one side and asked whether she wants to he an "orange" or "lemon." If she chooses an "orange" she is told to go behind the one who calls herself by that name and to take hold of her by the waist, or If she chooses to' be a "lemon" she holds the other girl, always speaking so that the others can't hear. Then the pair reunite their hands, and the game goes on from the singing of the verse and the marching until all have been caught and all have taken their places—behind the leaders. Then, as In "London bridge," a pulling contest ensues, the stronger side pulling all the others over and thus winning the game. I CHURCH NOTES Presbyterian.
