WESSIKGTQH SPRINGS, D. T. GV'\V. M^ONALb \Kditor~ f-:!d Publishers. OFFICIAL F/.n?E OF JERAULD COUNTY National Rppn Ticket, FOR RRESIDENT: JAMES G. BLAINE, OF MAINE. 70 JI VICE RRESIDENT: JOHN A. LOGAN, OF ILLINOIS. IV) r. Raymond's Position. The following telegram from John B. Raymond to the Press and Dakota ian, shows how Mr. Raymond stands pn the important questions of division ,and admission I always have been, am now, and ev er shall be for division and statehood, and know jf no citizen of North Dako ta who does not earnestly desire it or svho has npt kindly feelings for South Dakota, -except the capital crowd in Bismarck who have opposed it. I would tiot accept a nomination instructed against division, and I deem it of so much importance to not only Dakota, but to the whole Northwest and the Republican party, that I would sacrifice all other measures and ray-position in Congress to secure it. •v, JNO. B. RAYMOND. Mrs. Foster on St. John. inter-Ocean:—A few weeks ago FrJtncis Murphy, the eminent temper ance worker, came out, very sfcronjrly against the movement headed by St. John. lie saw in it an injury: to the cause to which his life is devoted. His idea was that it could not promote pro hibition, but would on the contrary give -it a setback. lie gave his reasons, and these have been unanswered, be cause they are unanswerable. And how another worker in the same c:iuse, Mrs. Poster, of lew a, is out in a letter giving reasons why Prohibitionists f-hsuld not support St. John. She has A Natidnal reputation for service in the cause of prohibition, and is entitled to be heard on the subject, especially by the members of the Woman's Chris tian Temperance Union and those who sympathize with that organization. The primary objection raised by Mrs. Foster is that the prohibition of the liquor traffic is a State and not a Na tional issue, from the very nature of our government. This' point is well taken,'' an'd its logic is irresistable. Herein prohibition and abolition sharp ly contrast. She pays a tribute of re spect to the motive of St. John, but deprecates his course as hurtful to the cause of temperance. •This much in the letter applies equal ly to Republicans and Democrats, but Mrs. Poster does not conceal her' decid ed preference for Mr. Blaine. She says: "Having been chosen by the Nation rnion Superintendent of the Depart ment of Legislative work and petitions, must keep myself free from partisan ship. As an individual I can not and smother my convictions. Either James G. Blaine or Grover Cleveland will be President of these United'States as between them I do not see how any Christian voter can hesitate. Writing as 1 do from this city of Buffalo, where Cleveland's honie is—no, where he lives, he has ho home—I do not' hesitate to say, as for me and mine, let it be the true husband, the honest father, the home man—James G. Blaine. This is the view which any noble voman would naturally take, whatever her partisan bias. Building a Straw-Stack. The two important points in the building of a stack of straw is to keep the middle full and tramped solid. Un less this is done the settling of the stack will make the middle, which bears the greater weight, so low that the outside straw will slant downwards toward the center of the stack, which will spoil, and with poor hands it is next to imppssible to have the middle pf the stack rightly treated they will stand and allow the outside of the stack to be built up around theni and loose straw to accumulate, until they are in a hole up to their waists, then they will put a few fork fyills of straw in this hole to stand upon and go to work again. Those whose work is to move the straw back tp the stackers should stack the middle also and to do this properly they must keep, moving back jmd forth over it. These men sjiould change positions every half hour, the one farthest from the machine taking the place of the one at the straw carri er, allowing all to move back one posi tion. As the nearer the machine a po sition is the harder it is, unless the men change positions some will have to work much harder than others. For feed the most valuable part is the chaff, and a large accumulation of this will be found under the straw carrier it will pay to make a pen of fence rail8, put the chafl: in the pen, and cover it with a roof of boards or straw if left at the end of the stack it is the first O -—.—-Gewnty-Legislatjoijr—- Wessington Springs, Jerauld Co.

County Clerk, A Dutchman lately bought a kitchen stove in Paris at an enormous price. When the stove had to be fixed, after a long journey to Rotterdam, the manu facturer who was intrusted with that task declared the stove to be one that had been made in his own factory. The Dutchman, nothing daunted, point ed to the French trade mark, but was undeceived when, after removing the iron mask, the metal trade mark of the "n-itoh •."•invtv.clv.rcj. aipt:»A'd. •—Thereadtng-Oir romances be. the favorite amusement of women old peruse them to recall what they have experienced young to anticipate what they wish to expurienpe—A Rich ard. 1 The latest, in dress, for gentlemen is the "Father Hubbard." An. exchange says, "simply drop the suspenders and wear the shirt loose over the'top of your pants, instead of tucking it in, and you have the 'Father Hubbard.'" Philadelphia Call:—"Make your hus bands comfortable at home, and they will not go out in the evening," ex claimed a Cincinnati preacher, lately. The next day Cincinnati wives were anxiously inquiring about the price of beer by the keg. "Gentlemen," a frank Western Judge is quoted as saying officially, "the Court, as the' bar well knows, is naturally' quick-tempered, and if this court had not taken warning in time, and ab stained from the use of ardent spririts this court would now be in the peni tentiary or its grave." "Father," said a youngster who, with his'sire, was watching the horses at play in the field, "do you know why you are like Jay Gould V" "Well, no, sonny, I do not." "It's'cause you have lpts of rolling stock." "All right, you go and water the stock and then you will be like Jay Gould, too." A thoroughbred" Kentucky heifer, named Lillie Dale, ate a leaf of tobacco and then lay down and gasped away $700 worth of blooded stock into the invisible beyond. By and by fine bred cattle will learn to leave the food of god-like man alone. Next thing you know, the race horse will get to drink ing whisky with the jockey's, and a nice set of brutes we will have. An English exchange tells us of a novel competition that has lately en tered into the market. It other words, milk is put into a can on this side of the water, and in eight or ten days de livered in London. This looks very like a jolte, but se many wonderful things are dene no\v-a-days that one hardly knows what to believe and what to doubt. If kept at alow temperature it retains its sweetness for that length of time, but it certainly would not pos sess a very fresh taste. Frederick Douglass has been heard from. He discusses the prohibition movement in a newspaper letter of con siderable length and great force. He shows that a vote for St. John is half a vote for Cleveland, and a positive in jury tp the cause of temperance. His reasoning is cogent, closing with an ap peal to the Republicans of prohibition tendencies to stand by the party until justice and liberty have been establish ed, and the ballot rendered sacred at the South as well as the North.—Inter Ocean. Sioux Falls Press:—The cartoonist has tackled the prohibitiori question in Iowa, and E. E. Savage brings back from Des Moines some samples of his work. The moon in its first quarter is pictured sailing over the Hawkeye state with a most direfully distorted visage, exclaiming, "However shall I get full?" Then the rotund orb is again depicted with a jolly leer in the eye, and the tongue thrust out of one corner of the mouth, the rollicking sub ject declaring, "I know where to get it, all the same! Ha! ha!" and down be low is a sign, "Morphia." South Dakota will probably carry oft the prize for the largest squashes, both at the Chicago and Milwaukee exposi tions. A'few days ago an Elk Point correspondent wrote the Sioux City Journal of a 162-pouncI squash which had been captured near that town, and the agricultural editor of that paper wanted the squash for a paper-weight and wrote the Elk Point correspondent to secure it for him. On Friday he re ceived the foUo wing: "The 102-pjund squash has been shipped to the Chicago exposition. Two that weighed 125 pounds each were shipped to Milwau kee. The three filled a double wagon box comfortably full from the seat back."—Sioux Falls Press. At Lake (George the water is so clear and the sand at the bottom so plean that the depth can be appreciated, and the ease pf drowning is apparent there. A mother of a six-year-old boy, while averse tp denying to him the pleasure of boating, sought to rob it of its perils. She said to herself that he would be safe if he couldn't fall overboard and so, having set him carefully in the ex act centre of the broadest seat in the craft, she fastened him down by driv ing a series of tacks through the slack of his trousers. Having thus satisfied herself of his security, &he returned to her favorite book and corner of the pi azza. Soon there arose an outcry that a boat had capsized in the lake. The scream with which she received the news was quite articulate. It called frantically for a tack hammer with which to arm the man who should dive for her boy. "Gracious me!" she re marked, after the alarm was found to have been baseless: "I guess my inven tive genius isn't comprehensive enough —WASH Off Nil E. B.
