Earl Perry, of Pearl township, is enjoying a visit from his uncle from Ogle county, Illinois.
Rev. G. Isaac received a cablegram last Saturday from Wales which announced the death of his father.
We are in receipt of a card from A. Krauth of Washington, D.C. He sent best regards to his many friends here.
M. D. Harris arrived with two car loads of cattle a few days ago, which he bought over west of the Missouri river.
Chas. Roth departed for Chicago on Saturday's evening passenger, summoned there because of the serious sickness of his mother.
Leon Thorn, accompanied by M. D. Harris, who made an extended tour over the west part of the state in his auto, arrived home Saturday evening.
In stating last week that F. A. Altenow would handle farm implements another year we should have said that he will sell the McCormick line instead of the Deering.
The social committee of the Christian Endeavor society entertained the members of this society at the Altenow home last Saturday night. A royal good time was reported.
B. F. Magness shipped another car load of horses to Pennsylvania last Saturday and a car load of stock hogs to a farmer at Iroquois and on Monday he shipped a car load of cattle to Doland.
Capt. J. T. Bailey and wife departed for Bloomington, Ill., their old home, Tuesday morning, where they will visit for some time at the home of their son. Before returning home they also intended to visit in Iowa and possibly in Nebraska.
We printed sale bills for Chas. Kramer last Saturday, whose sale will be held November 4. Sixteen head of cattle, 28 head of of hogs, 9 head of horses, 175 chickens, hay, millet and farm machinery will be sold He intends to move back to Clinton, Iowa.
J. H. Scoville suffered the fracture of his right leg near the ankle last Sunday. Wm. Walton was driving his car up to the northeastern part of the county with Messrs. Scoville and Danburg, who were to begin a large job of plastering in that section Monday. In going around a weak culvert on a side grade, Mr. Scoville jumped from the car, thinking it was going to turn over and weight is supposed to have helped to tilt the machine over on its side. Neither of the other two occupants were hurt.
We had intended to publish a statement this week over the signature of Mr. Douglass, republican candidate for county commissioner of this district, in which he could make a satisfactory statement to the voters as to his position on certain questions in which they are interested, but up to the hour of going to press he has not sent in such statement. His opponent, Mr. Roth, however, is gaining votes right along for the reason that he has given evidence of his intention to rightly represent his district by looking after its affairs in a business-like manner, without the advice of those who are only interested in getting their snout into the public crib.
Stanley Cox arrived home Sunday night from Oakes, N. D.

We glean from the Aberdeen Daily News that C. F. Shephard of Lemmon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Shephard of this place, has been proffered the position of engineer of the heating plants of the high school and ward schools in that city, which gives him jurisdiction over the heating arrangements in all the school buildings in that city.

Charley's many friends in this section will be pleased to hear that he is prospering.

Rev. Isaac, Pastor
(Too late for last week.)
Rev. Mr. Wines, of North Dakota, preached in the Bates Free Methodist church Sunday.
Rev O'Connor, former pastor of the local church, took his departure for Kennebec, Lyman Co., Wednesday. Tuesday morning the reverend gentleman's household goods were hauled to Wessington Springs, but he and his wife drove overland by way of Chamberlain to his new field of labor.
The small-pox scare in south-east Hand and the adjoining counties of Beadle and Buffalo seems to be abating. Mr. Woodruff, who had closed his school and gone to his home in Rose Hill Twp., appeared at the old stand, ready for business last Monday morning, and it is hoped that THE EPIDEMIC that seemed to be threatening us shall disturb us no further.
Henry Johnson, the young Wessington Springs Seminary student whose mishap with a motor-cycle at Vienna was mentioned in the News some time back, has so far recovered from his injuries as to be able to return to his school work. He spent a few days with his parents in Bates Twp., but autoed with his brother Oscar and other relatives to Wessington Springs Sunday.
Rev. O. W. Butterfield, former pastor to the Methodist churches of Miller and St. Lawrence and now Prohibition nominee for governor of this state, spoke on campaign topics at the church in Bates Twp. last Friday evening. The writer did not hear the speech, but, knowing Mr. Butterfield to be an orator of more than ordinary ability, feels sure that the not overly large audience reported to have heard him were certainly repaid for coming out. Of course, to the Socialist the Prohibitionists' plan for doing away with the drink evil looks about as feasible as moving the Rockies on a hand-sled. It would seem that after more than forty years existence as a political party, yet casting less than a quarter-million votes, they would wake up to the fact that the only way to come in really and truly out of the wet is to get from under the cloud of the profit system. Their platform and the "contract" of the Progressives are so nearly socialistic that the removal of a few coin-warped competitive planks and the substitution of some good, solid co-operative timber therefor would bring them into the only party that isn't guessing at a cure for the drink or other similar evil.
Honest, folks, the above paragraph is just the way it was written in the paper! I couldn't have made this up! CSR
