K\" in Siwton in (••ndanct'. Al- All who were in Sisseton Satur day evening are enthusiastic in theii praise for Sisseton's band. And as it happened there were a great many people in town, in fact the largest crowd ever recorded on a Saturday right. Ami the whole tiling i.-^ he- ing laid to the Sisseton Band. A concert and parade had been an nounced through the local papers •nd the way people srvery part of the country is swarmed from good "hat proof that music really charms. The whole population from the country seemed to have forgot ten everything else to listen and look as Sisston's band that has been rehearsed so diligently tor th.s op ening To begin with, the band fell in at the north extremity of the main street and paraded for a half hour. This brought the entire crowd to its t. The marching was perfect and the playing was excellent. The band was there in full force, twenty-eight pieces in all. And the way those four slide trombones manipulated seemed to indicate that they were placed in front of the procession to split the air so that the rest of the band could contribute their part of the music. There were four French horns, two baritones. six clarinets, five cornets, two basses, two saxaphones, two snare drum uid bass drum. From one end ol' the street to the other, people were lined up, on the side walk, alon? the curb and even the roofs of th: buildings held their share of tin spectators as gallaries for the boys After the parade, the band assem bled on the square and played a concert. At this we were somewhat astonished. We thought this band was only a marching affair. But a fine concert was given, consisting of all kinds of tunes. Everyone was delighted with it -fk We were told afterwards that ev ery store did an unusual business Saturday night, that everyone seem ed to be happy. We heard people say, "Sisseton is really a pretty good old burg after all." Everyone began to wonder whether the same thing would be given on the next Satur day night, and someone answered. "No, but there will be something better.. The band will. ..be on. the job." No, the above story is only r. story. Why not make it a reality? Other towns have increased their busine.s- by the support of a band. All we need to do is to spend a little time and energy in that direction. The band will really play tomor row evening. This will be the firsi move toward getting up a band. is lip to everyone to lend their mor al and financial support, in order to have a good band and a good band is what we want, and what we can have. HOODLUMS THROW fXJGS Some people in South Dakota do uot appear to be civilized yet and one bunch of them live at Toronto. Tom Ayres and Miss Daley were egged by a bunch of town lioodlufns at that place, but the hoodlums did not get away with all the glory, for the audience took the matter up and there was a clean out of the egg ers, after which the talking went on. Any one who could insult such an able speaker as Miss Daley and one who is taking a message to the peo ple of the state that is badly need ed, should be compelled to serve a term with Warden Jameson.— Sioux fails —diwuai.

Oats and barley, in the opin ion of many farmers, will return: tremendous expense of the largest yield in the past ten years, while the hay crop could hardly be better. Corn is coming along in fine shape under favorable weather conditions and the estitnat ed value of this crop wiil add great ly to the sum total of the countv'. general crop return. Next week will find every available man and machine in the field and the work of harvesting will be rushed from early morning 'till late at night Father and mother, yes. and the kiddies, too. will be drafted into service that the products of Roberts county fertile soil may be safely garnered and stowed away, to late do its bit in the feeding of the vorld's people. iNTHKHSTlNG DKTAIf.

Chairman R. T. Eastman had made an attempt to secure a ball for tiie meeting but the proprietor would not consent to its use because hf had no license. The town hail wa. then sought, but as it v/as small and scantily equipped with seats, thf band stand on the street was secur ed without protest from the gentle men who had charge of the keys. The speaking began at eight thirty to an immense crowd in the street. Miss Daly opened with a re cital of how it was that the League first challenged her attention and won her respect, when the fanners of Lake county were forced to hold a convention in the streets of Madi son because the business men of that town had locked the hall against them after they had rented the building. "When I learned of that act." uhe Can Not Make War." •'Clashing interests, when they are big enough can create ail arti t'cial 'national ill will' almost ovei night." says this editor, who de clares that any anti-English political oratory during the coming campaign is no a war factor.

She then took up her r.ustomar discussion of the defects in an eco nomic system which compels peopU to take their children out of sehoo' to help make a living. She told the loss of 14T.,000 teachers to the profession in the last year through, inadequate wages and rapped tlu republican leaders of the state £o the fact that South Dakota rank thirty-second in education whi'o North Dakota ranks sixteenth. From the time Miss Daly spok-. "he first half-dozen words she wa.' annoyed with "boos" from a grou of a half dozen Norbeck houdlums ar.d before she had spoken ten min utes- the lights were suddenly turn-! ed out and the air was filled with eggs, some of which struck the band stand, but none of which hit the speaker. After a brie? period, thi lights were turned on and Miss Daly proceeded. She was frequently in terrupted, but she stood her ground gamely, exo-rting the farmers to de sist from any action against the dis turbers, and had the great crowt' with her every minute. A second time the lights were turned off and another shower of eggs were direct ed at the stand, but these, like the first, fell wide of the mark. When she could again be heard the speaker said 8he had made many addresses in South Dakota and that Toronto was the first place she had no: been treated with nie greates' courte.-y. but "I presume we mus: bear this treatment because, it is the same that has always been met by the early leaders ot every move ment of value to the race." Miss Daly finally finished her ad dress without further interruption but the farmers were by this time be coming highly indignant and thv mobsters were saved from a drub hing only through the influence o' the speakers. Mr. Ayres was then introduced He struck at the heart of the mat ter the first blow. '•From what I have witnessed to night." he declared. "1 am sur. there are a half dozen living exam ples of South Dakota's backwart educational system in this town Eggs are the arguments of the un educated and the bigoted. Our op potients, chiefly Governor Norbeck, have been invited to take the plat form with us to discuss the issues but instead of debating with us the: want us IO debate their stale eggs." Continuing, he said: "We are going .to have free speed or a free fight ad we are preparer to defend ourselves, no matter what the sacrifice may return: nobody but a coward will threw eggs at a wom an. but I have usually found behind the hoodlums who do such thing? the culprit standing in the shadow of a bank vault." *•', This thrust brought on a period of interruptions from the eggsters as a result of which a bevy of brawny farmers surged up from the back of the audience pushing in front of them one Gilbert Tueve. as sistant cashier of a local bank.

Mr. Eck left immediately for St. Louis, but reached ttie bedside of his son after he had passed away. Roy has been a sufferer from par alysis since he was a very young child, and hopes for his recovery had been given up, until a short while ago. when he became able to walk through the treatment ho took at the hospital in St. Louis. The news of his apparent recovery was glad news to his parents, broth er and sisters, and his many friends. The news of his sudden death is a great sorrow to the family, and tc those friends who have awaited the time when Roy would be able tc romp with the rest of the boys. Roy Eck was born in Sisseton, Oc tober 1~. 1909. He was nearly 12 years of age at the time of his death, which occurred Thursday, July 22. Funeral services and burial wer? held at tlie Sisseton cemetery, the Rev. Fr. Cuniff officiating.

RECORDS SHOW LOSS IN CATTLE AS BEING HEAVY OVER M.-» A HKAlt LOST BV IMMI1K, Ml W. FARMER IX 1!HH TO About the Only Solution for Thin Condition is I'tiluwi Pro duction of Cattle By A. B. GILBERT iMINNEAPOI,'IS. Minn. the number of beef animals dining while consumers pay- Why is de record by the prices for beef is indicated careful accounts which George F. Selter of Danube. Minn., has kept of his experience in fattening steers. On 4 4 head bought at the South St. Paul market on December 16, 19IS. and sold in the same market on June 10. 1919. Mr. Selter finds that he lost $2,021.15. or $46 a head, without counting his own la bor. Also he had no loss from dis ease or accident. On 22 head bought on October 25, 1919, and sold on July 16 of tills year after fattening his loss was $994.33, or $45 a head. Again hi does not reckon labor expense and he suffered no loss from sickness or injury. The answer of the farmers to such conditions has to be reduction in cattle raising, if not dropping out altogether. During the last year we slaughtered 2,500,000 less ani mals than the year before: this year there will be a still greater drop. Apparently the only reasons why wejjave not suffered acute meat, famine as consumers are the great drop in exports and the heavy im ports of foreign meats. Detailed items in Mr. Selter's last effort in cattle feeding are as fol lows: Statement of cost, expense of feed ing and sale of 22 head of steers pur chased at South St. Paul October 25, 1919 average weight 1,137 pounds, at $11.45 per cwt.
