"No GREATER mistake could be com
mitted than to assume that the present
financial embarrassment is caused by
a scarcity of money in the country.
The fact is thnt the amount of curren
cy outside of the Treasury on the 25th
da}' of this month was $58,000,000
greater than the amount outstanding
on the first day of the month, and $70,
000,000 more than the amount out
standing one year ago. There is mon
ey enough to transact all the business
but it has been withdrawn from circu
lat:on and hoarded.''

the east side to Sioux City. The ob
ject of the road is to penetrate the
great wheat county of South Dakota
now untouched by a railroad. We sin
cerely hope that Mr. Beattie has suffi
cient financial backing to carry through
his project. A north and south road
would be of great benefit to the river
counties, especially Sully, which is sit
uated between fwo branches of the
Northwestern system, cutting off all
competition.

cheap homes for themselves can not
find a better place to invest than right
here in Sully county where the most

adapted to mixed farming—wheat,
corn, oats, rye, barley, potatoes and
live stock. The farmers have this
year raised a fine crop of corn and the
finest mealy potatoes ever placed upon
any market, in fact our potatoes are of
a superior quality and the yield is good.
There is an abundance of nutritious
grasses upon which stock thrive and
at all times are sleek and fat without
the aid of other feed. We invite in
spection by the home-seeker with mod
erate means or the capitalist who has
money to invest in lands...^hat will

A Sully County Bustler.
[Pierre Capital.]
Who says people can't get rich in
South Dakota? We were talking to a
gentleman who lives near Okobojo re
cently, and he said he came here in
1883 with just $5 in his pocket. Yes
terday he bought him a second 160
acre farm and paid the cash for it.
He owns a fine drove of cattle and
horses, and has money in the bank.
He does not run the country down, for
he is one of those farmers who know
how to farm, and he does not bla
e country, for being what it is.
VOLUME XI. ONIDA, SULLY COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1893. NUMBER 26.
V
MURDER AND SUICIDE.
P. W. Pearson, of Lewlston, Ellis
His Wife and Himself,
The most horrible tragedy ever en
acted in Sully county occurred at the
Lewiston post-office on Tuesday after
noon of this week. It seems that Post'
master P. W. Pearson of Lewiston be
came very jealous of his wife some
time ago, in consequence of which they
have had much trouble during the
past two or three weeks, resulting on
Tuesday afternoon at about 2 o'clock
in his shooting her with a rifle, killing
her instantly. He then placed the
muzzle of the gun to his own forehead
literally blowing, the top of his head off
and scattering his brains over the
ground. The terrible tragedy occurred
in his yard in the presence of a son 14
years old and a child about 4 years old.
The children went to the school house
—one-half mile distant—and told their
elder sister and Chas. Glessner, the
teacher, what had happened. School
was immediately dismissed and the
children sent to their several homes to
give the alarm, and when the neighbors
arrived they found the bodies lying on
the ground within three feet of each
other cold in death. A Constable was
placed in charge and Hakan Persson
and Albert Nilson came to Onida to
notify Coroner Pease, who on Wednes
day morning went to Lewiston and
held an inquest over the remains.
The verdict of the Coroner's jury is in
accordance with the aboye.
By this sad deed six children are
orphaned and left practically homeless,
the oldest being a girl aged 15 years
and the youngest a boy aged 4 years.
The Pearsons have resided at their
late residence since the spring of 1883
and for a number of years he has been
postmaster at Lewiston and for a }rear
or more has conducted a small grocery
store in connection with the office and
his farming operations. He had been
away from home all summer working
as section boss on the Forest City rail
road while his wife conducted the busi
ness at home. About three weeks ago
he came home and, we are mlormed,
trouble soon ensued between himself
and wife and continued until Tuesday
when it terminated as above stated.
He has always borne a good reputa
tion as a citizen, outside his home,
where jealousy seems to have gotten
the better of him, though our inform,
ants say it was all imaginary.
Their remains were yesterday buried
in the Okobojo cemetery.
Death of Harry Carpenter.
[Pierre Free Press.]
"Harry Carpenter, who was working
on a ranch some fortv-miles up Bad
river, received an accident Wednesday,
from which he died this morning. He
rode a horse into a rope corral, during
the night-time, which threw him head
long over the horse's head, and which
caused concussion of the brain, with a
fracture in his neck, Harry was well
liked bv all who knew him, and was a
young man of steady and good habits.
Mrs. Carpenter left her other children,
who are all sick, to go to him. Mr.
Carpenter is on the Cheyenne reserva
tion working on some Indian school
houses.''
Harry Carpenter was the only soni
of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Carpenter for
mer residents of Okobojo township,
and grew to manhood in this county.
He was about 23 years of age, and well
known and highly respected. His re
mains were brought to Pierre and ii^
terred in the East Pierre cemetery.
The many Iriends of Mr. and Mrs.
Carpenter and the family in Sully
county deeply condole with them in
ir beriev^ment.
