•4" TUESDAY WAS CONVENTION DAY Non-Partisans, Republicans and Dein ocrats Select Proposalmen Tuesday of this week was Conven tion day and the noon train brought in a large size crowd of delegates to Attend the conventions to which they were sent. The Nonpartisans and Republicans met in the court house while the Dem ocrats met in Batterton & Bunde's -office. The proposalmen selected by the Republicans to attend the State Con vention were: J. D. Smull, Summit, S. D. S. M. Satre, Claire City, S. D. and Mrs. Agnes Turner, Sisseton, S. v. And the Democrats selected Dr J. A Robertson, H. J. Christenson and Mickael Mickaeison. The Nonpartisans had by far the largest representation, for they more -than doubled the number of delegates •sent here tiy both the Republican and Democrat factions. The League Convention was called to order by Chairman J. M. Hanson and nominations were made to select proposalmen to be sent to the state convention to be held at Pierre. The following were selected: Morris Eggen, Hart township, C. M. Founder Easter township and Carl Peterson o£ Lake township. A committee of five was'appointed by the chairman to act in conjunction with the proposalmen sent to the county convention and others inter ested in the new party, to look the county over to find the best men qualified to be put on the ticket for county and state officers. They will look up a prospective candidate's standing and deside if he is capable of handling Iiis office if elected. In this way it will eliminate the chances of an incompetent candidate being placed on the ticket. The committee will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at Sis seton. The convention was a lively one, and by all indications the farmers of Roberts county are out to fight to a finish and by the large representa tion they had on Tuesday it looks like they will carry the county by a large majority in the final election. The state proposalmen elected at the county meetings are requested to meet in Pierre on Monday, December 1, one day before the legal convention to talk over policies for the League for the coming year and to outline plans for the campaign. All League members who are not delegates are requested also to be in attendance at this informal meeting on December 1 and take part in the discussions for the welfare of the League. Prominent League speakers will be present and it will be well worth the time of any Leaguer who can do so to ba present at this love-feast of the clans. The Locke Hotel has been rented for the occasion and good accommodations are assured all who attend. Wanted—Two rooms furnished or unfurnished, for light- house keeping. Leave word at the Standard Office. Sisseton, 4 Jt =. «, vteiS », TIMELY SUGGESTIONS AND TOILET ARTICLES Aged Woman Commit* Suicide A sad affair occurred at the Ben Anderson farm in Becker township Sec. 24, sometime Sunday night, when Mrs. Howe, mother of Bert Howe and Mrs. Ben Anderson committed suicide by throwing herself into the water tank. Mrs. Howe who is sixty years of age had been in poor health for sometime and was quite despondent at times. She had acted queerly all day, but the folks thought nothing of it until her body was discovered in the tank. The family retired as usual Sunday night and some time later she was found to be missing. A search was started with the above re sults. It is thought she became tem porarily deranged and in a fit of des pondency committeed the deed. The authorities were notified, but there being absolute proof that it was a case of suicide, it was decided no inquest was necessary. "THE BLUE BIRD" SUPERB AKT CRAFT PICTURE TO Bf3*SHOWN AT UNIQUE THKATIIK "The P.lue Bird" an Artcraft pic ture, will be shown at the Unique Theatre next Thursday evening, Nov. 27th. It is an adaptation, by Char les Maigne, from Maeterlinck's mas terpiece, which has attracted wide at tention in the dramatic and literary world. The great author took for his central figures a little boy and girl and for them he drew aside the cur tain of life, delved into the past and touched eloquently upon the great Beyond. In the form of a play, as produced in London and later in New York, the story teemed with dramatic interest, and instead of a heavy preachment or a dry sermon it developed into a virile presentation, sparking with vivacity. In adapting this Work to motion pic tures, director Maurice Tourneur, who staged the production for Art craft, has carried out the idea of the author in making the photoplay un derstandable. The result is a unique plav of stu pendous magnitude, in which is in corporated the highest technique of photographic art, with multiple film exposures requiring infinite care and patience. Settings of colossal size and ensembles of hundreds of people make this photoplay a mighty spec tacular offering in which the artistic details have been carefully looked after.

Tracy, former county club leader, has accepted a position with the Guaranty State Bank of this city and will devote his entira time to conducting the boys and girls' club work undertaken by the bank, together with other outside work connected with the bank. Mr. Tracy attended the Agricultur al College at Ames, Iowa, and is ex ceptionally well qualified tor work of this kind and his services in con nection with the club work of the county the past year has been of in estimable value. We are indeed glad to learn that his work along these lines is to be continued in his new po sition. The Guaranty State Bank is taking •the lead in the encouragement of the troys' and girl's pig club work and 1a -making an effort to have every boy and girl in this vicinity rais a pure bred sow the coming year. The bank is offering to loan the boys arid girls the money with which to buy a pure bred sow, or will give them a sow, the only payment asked being that the club member return two gilts from the first litter, which the bank will again distribute to the boys and girls of this community next year. The latter plan is proving by far the most popular and tiie bank has receiv ed requests from every part of the county for sows to be given away un der this' plan. Under this plan the boys and girls receive the old sow and all the Jitter except two for their work, and the bank assumes all the risks due to losing the sows, etc. The Standard takes this opportun ity of congratulating the Guaranty State. Bank upon this forward step in the encouragement of better live Stock and better farming in thsi vi cinity, and upon its securing for this community the continued services of Mr. Tracy.

This is not the case. We are charging the same rates that Mr. Johnson, the for mer owner, did. It is a well understood fact that the cost of printing, material, paper, ink, etc., has increased enormously, in some Instances 200 per cent, in the past few years, and we can not sell our space at the rates charged four years ago. The cost of merchandise has also increased, and when the printer goes to the store to make his purchases he does not try to have the merchant lower his prices, as the merchant is entitled to a fair profit. The same holds true in a printing office. We have to sell our space to meet over head costs and are entitled to the same fair profit as a merchant. The Standard has a circulation of over 1900, almost entirely in Roberts county and fifteen cents per inch for advertising is a very cheap rate, In fact too cheap. We have no intention of raising our rates, but wish to be fair to all. There are a number of outside stores who wish to get in our adver tising columns, but as we are pub lishing this paper in the interests of the people and the business men of Roberts county we do not care to take outside advertising, at least not as long as the business men support the paper the way it should be. Our advertising rates will be pub lished hereafter in the first column of the editorial page and will be strictly adhered to. Mcticfi-Erlckson Miss Iva McGee, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mira.
