And that isn't strange, either.
Men who think they can't smoke a pipe or roll a ciga
rette can amoke and will amoke if they use Prince
and speak easics, the drug
stores, and the shipments into
the state from outside wet
territory for private consump­
tion. The open saloon dis
appears automatically on the
first of next July. 11 is now
the duty of the legislature t"
pa-.- a law so, stringent as to
guarantee that ii- place shall
not be taken bv something
worse.
The next step is for the
people to take—the election
of otlicials who will enforce
the law. That means espec­
ially tlie election of the right
kind of a .-talc's attorney,
the right kind t»f a sheriff,
and the right kind of mayor
in cities. The people of this
-täte ha\e spoken in favor of
prohibition and it should now
be the part of all good citizens
to aid in the passage of the
right kind of a law and in the
election of the right kind of
officials to enforce it.

just one gal his on, says an

cause a boy lives in town,
wears two kinds of socks,
parts his hair in the middle
sucks at a cigarette, curls his
hair on his mother's curling
tongs, and had a dad

that is 110 sign that he is go
ing to run this country in the
future. We'll put our money
on the sound, sane and sen­
sible boy from the forks of the

We have opened this cash produce market at Sisseton, and we
will be in the market every day in the week to buy the above com
modities.
Remember we will be in the market to buy fur as soon as the
für season open up.
We would advise the farmers not to sell their turkeys until they
get fat, as we are looking for a higher turkey market in December,
than we have at present.
When in Sisseton come in and see us, in the Tower Building,
opposite the Sisseton Standard office.
