It Is with tha keenest pleasure that your contributor can this week write of one of the fairest of the .many i.ur daughters of the farm, here in out town. Miss Margaret Schmidt, mem ber of the clais of twenty-two boys and girls, the 13th and largest class that ever graduated from the Sisse ton High School. It has been dubbed 'The Unusual Class" being for one thing, the thirteenth in the line ol commencements. The 8th grade of the ciiy schools had to have an extra si. weeks session vhich was taught Ir, one of our sons of the farm, Mr. Clay ton Schmidt, L-et'ore they were ad mitted to the first year of the four year course. In its last year the fl-. wrought great havoc with the time ailoted to the «eniors in which complete their work. And becau«« of its difficulties we honor the mem bers of the class all the more, i'.u si.m toal of tim j. effort, expense, pa tience and perseverance require.'. each one who travels the road laid out for our bov: and girls in order to graduate from one of our liigl. schools is something to be reckoned with: The sacrifice required of tlv mothers of all working class girls an 1 boys who graduate from a high school L- so great as to form an obstacle that only one mother in hundreds or even thousands on the farm feel able tc make it. Elder sisters, too, come in for their share of honor, as.do fath ers and brothers who must drive farm teams an infinite number of times i.o and from th^ school.. That all th book will hereafter be free to stud ents is good news. That in the not di *ant future, all schools and hig'i schools will undergo great changes the opinion of many thinking peo ple. Read from the August "Ameri ci»n-Magazine" what Gene Stratton Porter, born 1868 on a farm ir V-abash Co., Indiana, writer of 1.1 books, the comoined sale of which is over 7,000,000 says: "I was placed in the public schools of the nearest county seat, and an ef fort made to instill Latin, Greek anf calulus. In the whole of my school life I never had one teacher wh made the slight, st effort to discove? what I cared for personally, what I had been born to do, or who made any attempt to help me in any direc tion I evinced an inclination to deve lop. I was to be pushed into the groove in which all other pupils ran When I could not be forced, it was because I was of poor mentality oi had a bad disposition." Mr. and M°-- J. P. Aasness and daughter Lena at present visiting at the home of Mr and Mrs. Himle wil! leave tor Tacoma, Wash., the las!, oi July.

Minn., where the trial of A C. Townley and organizer Gilbert was being conducted. There publi opinion is strong tor Townley an declares the ca?e "won't amount tc anything" Farmers are Joining th league every dav in great numbers That trial was casting oil into the flames! TWO SPOTS The town that can't afford any mohey to watch out for little hollows in the roads and fill them up before they enlarge, Is usually the same place that later is looking to borrow a big sum to reconstruct its ruinech highways. The reputation which a town get? depends a lot on the portion of it visible from the railroad line. The town may have the handsomest resi dences in the section, but if the rail road car view consists of tumble down chicken coops and dilapidated pigpens, no one is going to cary away any good words tor that place.

SISSETON WEEKLY STANDARD "I never thought I would let my name be used in conectlon with a medicine, but It It had not been tor Tanlac I would still be a sick woman and I feel that I ought to try to help others by telling them about it," said Mrs. J.

My appetite was very poor and I always suffered so much pain in my stomach after meals that I had gotten almost afraid to eat anything. My food would ferment and the gas from it would press on my heart until I would just have to fight tor bteath. I often had nervous, sielt headaches and was very dizzy at times. I could hardly ever get a good night's sleep, was very sick and al ways got.up in the mornings feeling as tired as when I retired at night. In fact that, tired worn-out feeling was with me all the time and I hardly had strength to do my housework. "Finally I got to taking Tanlac on the advice of my daughter In Musko gee, Oklahoma. She told me of a min ister there who said he did not be lieve there was ever a case of stom ach trouble Tanlac would not re lieve and the results in my case have convinced me that he was right. Sooi| after I began taking it my pp^tite improved and I commenced to giin both in weight and strength. My ap petite is Just fine now, the gas has stopped forming on my stomach and I can eat what I please and a'.l I want without ever having a pain or ar. un comfortable feeling afterwards. I sleep just like a child every night, get L.p in piornings feeling rested and refreshed., When I began taking Tanlac I only weighed one hundred and eigh teen pounds, but I now weigh one hundred and thirty-five, making an actual gain of seventeen pounds. This is just what six bottles »of Tanlac has done tor me and there's nothing too good for me to say for It." Tanlac is sold in the Rexall Drug Store.
