Wessington Springs, D. T. ^*li?3r '^i -VI 4 f'r The Old Year. 1A "SISTBH CAtiltlE." 1 arewelt old Treasurer. Auditor 1 The Dakota Farmers' Alliance Com pany met at Huron during the session of the Territorial Alliance. The offi cers elect are President, Geo. G. Crose, editor of the Dakota Ruralist, publish ed at Pierre Vice-President, Calvin Moore Secretary, Don C. .Needham Treasurer, ,J. G. Carlisle. As the date approaches when taxes become delinquent, it causes one to wonder why such laws have been en acted and for whose benefit. The tax es become delinquent at a time when Dakota farmers have the least with which to pay them. It would be easier for,them to pay their taxes if made due and payable about August 1st and delinquent October, 1st. or Xovember 1st. In this way they would be able to market sufficient grain to pay their taxej and not be obliged to pay such a heavy penalty a?:d interest. There is a defect in our assessment laws that also works great injustice to our west ern farmers. It is the design of our laws to tax values once, and but once yet, as the laws are today, many of the values are taxed twice, provided the money loaner returns all his moneys and credits. Supposing a man borrows 81000, and with it buys and improves a farm. The assessor comes along and returns the amount of 61000 for taxa tion an:l if the loaner of that 81000 does his duty it is again returned for taxation. The Jaw requires that all moneys and credits shall be returned over and above the debts owed by the holder. If the law exempts oce man's property to the amount of his debts, then it should that of another. The poor man must pay taxes on his debts while the debts, and an equal amount of cash belonging to the rich man are exempt. The Sunflower Badge. The woman suffragists of Kansas lately adopted a yellow ribbon as their distinctive sign. They call it the "sun flower badge." They say they chose it 'because, as the sunllower follows civ ilization, follows the wheel-track and the plow, so woman suffrage inevitably follows civilized government." The suffragists of Massachusetts and Penn sylvania have taken up the idea, and many of the "white ribbon women" of the W. C.T. U. are knotting the gold colored ribbon with the white one at their button-holes. The two go well togeth.er. Cive Them A Chance! That is to say, your lungs. Also all your breathing machinery. Very won derful machinery it is. .Not only the larger air-passages, but the thousands of little tubes and cavities leading from them.

THFI NEW CIVILIZATION. Beloved Comrades in Christ's army From lofty States and Territories your line of, march has converged for one week pavt upon this Athens of the South. The miles covered by your steady-moving battalions would belt the world twice over. The time taken to reach this trvsting place would round out more than a year, while the norey spent would well gh lay the founda tions of our Temperance Temple. An army ol women, so representative ot all that teems the brain, thrills in the heart, and works in the will of this masterful nation, from Paget wound to Tampa Bay, lrom San Diego to Bar Ilarber, has never before gathered up on American soi). Best of all, the mar shaling hobts oi v/hieh you ars the van guard, represent the downfall of secta nonism religion and the death of sectionalism in politics. The bugle of your advance strikes the key-note of the Church universal, and the druth beat ot your hearts, now throbbing around the world, predicts the day *when the nations shall form one uni versal brotherhood. Your white rib bon prophesies the white flag of peace that yet shall wave at the mast head of every ship and from the dome of every capitol upon the globe. For nothing less hs£s God set in motion the home hosts bf all nations, "with the prayer of faith, arid the badge of snow, and the song of victory singing." THIS WOULD'S king in its realm of cause and effect king of its courts, its camps, its com merce: king of its colleges and clois ters king of its customs and its consti tutions. Not a king who hears the na tions praising him far off, fromthelips outward, but one who, dwelling in their hearts, radiates His presence in to their daily doings, and" makes His word as much the text-book of their daily lives as the multiplication table is of their business transactions. The kingdom of Christ is no poetic fancy with us white ribboners no mystic dream. It is a solid sphere of fact—a realm in which dwell neither alien nor native, neither bond nor free, neither male nor female, but all are equal inte gers in the working out through Christ like laws and customs of a Christ-like destiny.
