Government Changes Date
Of Open Season.
The department of agriculture
which is in charge of the federal
migratory bird law, has just pro
mulgated a new set of proposed
regulations under that law which
will become effective on or about
August 16, 1916, after being ap*
proved by the president. It is
quite likely, however, that sever
al important changes will yet be
made in the regulations before
finally adopted—after proposed
regulations have been given
publicity for a period of three
months as required by law.
Many important changes have
been made in the open seasons
for killing migratory game birds,
notably in the middle western
states. Six states which are now
in the "wintering zone*' No.
2. have been placed in the "breed
ing zone" No. I, namely, Ken
tucky, West Virginia, Missouri,
Kansas, Utah and Nevada.
Regulation No. 5, in effect at
this time, which places a closed
season the entire year on certain
navigable rivers—the Mississippi
between Minneapolis and Mein
phis, the Missouri between Bis
raark and Nebraska City, has
been left out of the new regula
tions, thus permitting migratory
waterfowl to be killed hereafter
on those waters during the legal
open season.
The open season in Zone No. 1
(exclusive of exception) has been
changed from September 1—De
cember 16, to September 6—De
cember 21, which includes South
Dakota. The states of Illinois,
Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and
Missouri have been given a
month's late winter shooting—
the new open season being from
September 15 to November 16,
and from February 10 to March

regulations are protected at all

Dr. Quinnel Showered.
It is customary for the friends of
a young lady to honor her with a
parcel shower about the time she
is approaching one of the most im
portant events of her life, but sel
dom a prospective groom is honor
ed in this fashion. However, the
friends—or enemies, we won't !jay
which—thot that something along
this line should be done for Dr.
Quinnell and they invited him to
meet them at the Thompson House
on Friday evening of last week
where he was presented with a fine
upholster rocking chair.
During the evening a sumptuous
four course supper was served and
his friends gave him some kindly
admonitions as to his proper con
duct when he snould join the groat
army of benedicts, and Paul Rick
ert and Chris Andrews were pre*
sented to him as worthy examples
to follow in regard to keeping re
gular hours, attending to the gar
den and other domestic duties.
At appointed intervals during
the evening, the guest was instruct
ed in various lines and given fair
warning of the pitfalls along the
matrimonial trail. Among these
were "How to subdue the female
of the species", with Hal Knight
as instructor 'Loves Dream—the
Awakening" by Ira Jencks. Little
lectures on 'Single Blessedness vs.
Double Cussedness" were given by
Max Dady, Ed. Quaiueance. Paul
Linster and Emil Vaage, the un
married men who reserved the
second section for a future occasion
the better to give personal experi
ence. The the poor doctor was
taken aside by W. Johnson and
instrucred in the secret work of the
order, given some real fateerly ad
vice and told that he would be for
given for his first offense, but it
must never happen again, etc.
A most enjoyable time was bad
by all, even the culprit seeming to
enjoy the occasion, and if he does
n't have smooth sailing from now
on it won't be the fault of any of
those who were present at this in
formal gathering of his well wish

Drive It Into the Barn
AS we told you, a Low Cloverleaf gives the
manure a double beating. It also spread«
manure eight feet wide or better. But the
wonderful thing is that it does this fromabox
only 45 inches wide. The spreader itself is
so narrow that it can be driven into any modern barn
from the gutters. Only one handling of
•m the manure for the quickest, best job of spreading
vs? you ever
How does that sound to you
If you have even begun to think about buying a
spreader, see this Low Cloverleaf. You will say you
never saw a better manure spreader. It won't take
long to look it over. Your dealer has one set up for
you to see.

June 20th to June 30th.
The Roberts County Normal
Institute will be held in Sisseton
from June 20th to June 30th
1916. Arrangements have been
completed for the institute and
every thing is in readiness to
make every session of the 1916
meeting the best ever. Professor
A. H. Seymour of the Northern
Normal and Industrial School at
Aberdeen has been secured to
conduct the institute. His varied
experiences in many lines of
school work and administration
peculiarly fits him for the place.
For many years he was superin
tendent of the city schools of
Volga later being elected as
county superintendent for four
years and in the fall of 1914 he
entered the Normal School as an
instructor in Geography and
Elementary Science.
Other members of the faculty
are Miss Lid a Williams also of
the Normal of Aberdeen, who
will have charge of the Primary
Methods, Music and Drawing.
Miss Williams comes highly re
commended and has been very
successful in her teaching ex
Mr. H. C. Souder, county su
perintendent ot Grant County
will have the work in Reading,
Grammar and Literature. Mr.
Souder has made a special study
of these, subjects and his classes
will be well worth attending.
Frank R. McKenna will have
the work in Civics. Mr. Mc
Kenna was for a number of years
a successful school teacher and
is now a practicing attorney in
Sisseton. He will be able to give
the teachers the benefits of his
experience both as a teacher and
as an attorney in the classes in
A new feature of the institute
will be practical lectures by the
medical men of the city and sur
rounding towns upon the very
important subjects of hygiene
and sanitation. These lectures
should prove very beneficial and
instructive coming from these
men who make a study of this
line of work.
Season tickets for the Chautau
qua may be purchased by the
teachers at reduced rates and no
doubt every teacher in the insti
tute will take advantage of this
splendid offer.
Tribune—While coming from
Beardsley Tuesday night, Wil
lie Dougherty who was driving a
team of horses, was run into by an
automobile and one of the horses
killed. It is claimed the driver of
the car who belongs in Graceville,
was running at great speed and
without lights of any kind. Willie
was bruised up pretty badly, a
wheel taken off the buggy and one
horse killed which belonged to
Frank Dougherty. If the claims
made are found to be true it was
nothing less than criminal neglect,
to be running- at night without
lights and to say tile least will
probably prove to be an expensive
joy ride.
The Woodmen initiated three
new members last Tuesday
night. They were, Glenn Hud
son, Harry Murphy and Bill
Johnson. There was something
doing alright and after refresh
ments were served, it being a
late hour they departed for their
respective homes.
Pat Reardon of Claire City
was a business caller here on
Tuesday of this week.

Mr. Schmit of Sisseton a'riv
ed Monday evening for a short
visit here returning home Tues
day accompanied by his son and
daughter, Prof. Clayton Schmidt
and sister Miss Emma who have
had charge of the Ort
ley Schools
the two past terms and have
given such srtisfaction that the
school board has retained them
for another year. Prof, and
Miss Schmidt will spend their
vacation at the parental home
near Sisseton and will be with us

Last Thursday evening four of
our young ladies graduated from
the Ortley High School. They
were: Magdalene Or ton, Tilda
Nelson, Amanda Johnson and
Mildred Shoemaker. The Luther
an church was crowded with
relatives and friends of the
graduates who came to give their
best wishes to these young ladies
for their success. Rev. R. C.
Shearer of Doland, S. gave
an interesting and beneficial ad
dress on "How To Be Great"
which was highly appreciated by
every one present. Rev. Shearer
in his address urged all i'oung
people to take a higher aim in
life and to keep on until they
had succeeded in reaching that
point. He also urged them to
keep on going higher in their
education. Supt. Thomas also
gave a short talk to the gradu
ates and audience. Mrs. Ole
Ronning sang a beautiful solo
that was apprecirted by all. We
can say that Prof. Clayton
Schmidt and sister have been
with us the two past years and
have given the best of satisfac
tion and our school was closed
with the happy thought that we
can have these two young people
with us again when school re
opens in September.
Friday morning the sad news
was spread over our city of the
sudden death of Ethel Johanna,
the little daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. O. E. Thorsgaard.
The little one was taken with
convulsions at the Commence
ment Exercises at the Lutheran
Church Thursday evening about
nine o'clock and was taken home
where her parents rushed her
immediately to Waubay to re
ceive medical aid. Though ev
ery thing was done that kind and
loving hands could do, the little
one passed away at midnight.
The passing away of little
Ethel leaves a spot in the home
vacant only for the memory of
her brightness that she brought
to her parents and sisters, be
sides always being pleasant to
her many friends that she met
every day.
Ethel Johanna Thorsgaard was
born at Wantoma, Wisconsin
on June 20th, 1912, and died at
the Chapman hospital in Wau
bay, May 25, 1916, at the age of
three years, 11 months and 5
The funeral was held from the
Lutheran Church, Saturday
afternoon and Rev. Westberg of
Summit preached the funeral
sermon and the remains laid to
rest in the Ortley Cemetery. A
large crowd of friends showed
their sympathy to the bereaved
•elatives in attending the funeral
and following the body to its last
resting place. The Lodges and
other organizations and friends
gave large tributes of flowers.
We extend the parents, sisters
and other relatives onr sincere
sympathy in this their sad hour.

This week is "Swat the Roos
ter" week in South Dakota and
Saturday, June 10, is rooster
day. Thousands of circulars
and place cards have been sent
from the office of the Pure Food
and Drug Commissioner to every
town in the state and distributed
by merchants and commission
men to farmers. These circulars
announce "'Rooster Day" as a
means to have production of
better eggs and warn farmers
and merchants against selling
eggs unfit for food. Fertile eggs
undergo decomposition much
more quickly than the infertile,
hence the agitation to induce
the farmers to remove all male
birds from their flocks immedi
ately after the close of the
spring breeding season. Where
well bred valuable roosters are
owned, these are not killed, but
simply taken from the Hock and
kept in separate pens during the
summer months. All other male
birds should be killed or sold for
slaughter next week, as they will
never bring more than now. and
consequently their maintenance
longer is not only a dead loss
but they cause an enormous de
preciatiod in egg values when
allowed to run with the liens
during the summer season. The
Rooster Day*'campaign in this
state during the past two seasons
have resulted in the elimination
of thousands of male birds and
consequently great improvement
in quality of eggs shipped to
eastern markets. Buyers have
been paying better prices for
male birds on that day as an ex
tra inducement to farmers to
dispose of the roosters. The
unusually high prices of poultry
this season should bring in a
great number of birds.
