DAKOTA STATE NEWS
---------------
MILLER---Ping Brothers, north of town, have realized a profit of $2000 on a bunch of calves they shipped from St. Paul last April, besides nearly $1000 on other cattle bought here at the time. Many others in this vicinity have made big money on cattle shipped in last spring that have only eaten native grass since. Many are already talking of going into that business next spring if they can find the cattle in the markets.

HURON---The dental office of Dr. S. W. Ullem was entered by thieves last evening and gold valued between $40 and $50 was stolen. The robbery was not discovered till morning, giving the robbers ample time to make their escape from town. The office of Dr. M. E Walton was also broken into, but as all of Dr Walton's valuable metals were kept in safety deposit, nothing was stolen. No trace of the men has been found.

REDFIELD---At an auction sale of livestock on the farm of William Arnett, seven miles west of Redfield, a graded Holstein cow sold for $100, after spirited bidding The cow last March produced 73 pounds of butter in 31 days.
