WILL ACCEPT BIDS FOR MISSOURI BRIDGE; The state highway commission is advertising for bids for a four span j bridge across the Missouri river at Chamberlain. Bids are to be open-! ed April fifteenth and the work: to be completed by May of 1925. Jackson county’s highway super- intendent J. E. Buckmaster re-: turned from Pierre early this week with the photograph of a drawing of the proposed bridge. It is now; on display mt his offices and is arousing much interest in the long; dreamed and talked ot project. This graceful steel structure meas- 1 ures 1480 feet between abutments and has a distance of 330 feet be- tween each of the four spans and; a headroom of forty feet to the, lowest watermark. It will be lo- cated 1050 feet down stream from the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul bridge. Our readers may rest assured that a lot of the hinderance to travel including even the obstruct- ion to the passage of the maijs which we are experiencing this week, will be done away with and travelers will have no occasion to inquire anxiously whether they can get across the river at Cham- berlain or not. The new bridge when completed will settle thjs problem once and for all. It is another step in the advancement and progress of the west-river country and as such will be hailed frith delight. MARCH GOES OUT ROARING The present month has not been a very pleasant one. In fact it j: .has not come up to the gentle’<j standard set by the earlier winter j 'months at all and the first of; 1 April finds covers of solid ice over;! open waters and the landscape * 1 covered with a blanket of white. |i What must perhaps be recorded as the worst .snowstorm of the winter arrived last Friday on the crest of a rainstorm. The tempera- ture dropped below freezing and in a short time streets and walks I I were fit to skate on. Friday night it began to snow and the weather- ji : man kept up this program until \ ! Sunday morning. Wh&n Kadoka ; woke ui> on the Sabbath the dea-| criptions, in Whittiers “Snow- bound” were applicable to Kadoka. Drifts from three to five feet high ! were obstructing street and walk I and many of our good people took i| their early morning exercise with p the snow shovel. The sun .appear-j ed smiling; but could do only lit-! ! tie that day in spite of the advane-jjed season. Monday was another fj bright day, but the breezes coming ,j from the north, the snow stayed(on. Although diminishing little!(by little there is still ots of evi-; 1 deuce of the past storm as we go ito press. During the night it;(freezes hard. ;< The storm as it appeared here Ij was the tail end of a most damag-j ; ing blizzard which struck north-,jern Minnesota and North Dakota.! In the eastern part of the state it ¦i did much damage. Near Salem on( one two mile stretch no less thani, 75 sleet laden telephone poles i yielded under the strain, Pjorre! i had twice the snow that we had j; here and the roof of a garage at 'Fort Pierre gave way under the' load. j . The -now and frost will retardl farming somewhat and our friends! iin the country arc getting impa- tient to get into the field to plant j their spring crops. With hotterjweather promised it is hoped that; field work may ho taken up in! , ano her week. j! THE NORTH CAROLINA “STOP LAW” Through J. C. Pease, local sta- tion agent for the Milwaukee rail- road company, we are placed in posession of the following facts which were brought to his attent- ion by C. A. Christoffor, superinten- dent of this division of the Mil- waukee: ‘‘ln the state of North Carolina at highway crossings of the South- ern Railway, the number of per-! sons killed by trains in the last six months of 1923 was four, and of in jured 11: as compared with fi kill-, ed and 24 injured in the first half of the yc ?V‘, and larger numbers in half years lie fore that. Those figures are reported by the railway company in connection with a note on the law of North Carolina re- quiring drivers of automobiles to; stop before crossing railroad tracks and the law is given credit for the diminution in the number of dis- asters at crossings. The number !of motor vehicles registered in I North Carolina last year was 217, 212 as compared with 182.(M)0 in! ! 1922.” ESTIMATED WEALTH OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA ! Washington, D. C., March 23, 1924 The Department of Commerce an-| nounces* for the‘State of South Dakota, its preliminary estimate ’ of the value December 31, 1922, of ' the principal forms of wealth, the total amounting to $2, 925,968,000 as compared with $1,314,881,000 in 1912, au increase of 122.5 per cent. Per capita values increased from $2,105 to $1,182, or 112.9 per cent. I All classes of property increased II in value from 1912 to 1922. 3ho! estimated value of taxed real property ami improvements in- -11 creat'd from $571,782,000 to $1,890-| 843,000, or 2:10.7 per cent; exempt . real property (exclusive of Fossil Cycad National Monument and [ Wind Cave National Park) from $67,880,000 to slßl, 775.000 or 169.9 per cent; live stock from $145,- 1 815,(KM) to $ 152,592,000 or 4.6 per •.cent; farm implements and macniu, ’ ery from $38,101,000 to $85,646,000 • or 124.8 |K*r cent; manufacturing • I machinery, tools, and implementsI from $6,044,000 or 82.8 per cent • t from $6,044,000 to $11,048.0(H) or ' 82.8 per cent; and railroads and r ! their equipment from $187,283,000 ';to $229, 31.000 or 22. per cent. i Privately owned transportation andi transmission enterprises, other lhao railroads, increased in value l' j from $25,802,000 to $37,190.0(H) or >'(44.1 per’ cent; and stocks of goods, I vehicles other than motor, furni- f turo, and clothing from $272,174,- y 0(H) to $291,167,000 or 7.0 per cent, t No comparison is possible for the value of motor vehicles, which was c>i estimated in 1922 at $46,076,000 *• I because no separate estimate was t) made in 1912. ki In making these estimates the e; Department followed in general o j the methods employed in making e; the estimates for 1912, though it s; i* believed that in some respects '-jthe work in 1922 hgs been more h j thorough. It should l>e borne in o mind that the increases in money value are to a large extent due to o; the rise in prices which has taken dj place in recent years, and so far as that is the case they do not rep- IN THE MEANTIME “Home Sweep Home,” is the in-j scription on the front door of anjeastern broom factory.

COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES On the account of the storm on Saturday, March 29 the district school officer; did not have the regular meeting scheduled for that date. The meeting was post- poned until April 11th. The District Spelling Contests aiv to be held in the various dist- ricts during the month. April 5 at Weta; April 12th at Kadoka, April 19th at Belvidere and April 26th at Cottonwood. Considerable interest is !>¦ ing manifested and v\e hope the icsult will be improv- ed spelling among the school ! children of the county. Considerable stress is being placed upon exhibits showing im-j provements in school buildings: and grounds »f the rural schools. : We are anxious to secure pictures to be exhilmed it the State Fair showing the condition of the 'schools in ut stern South Dakota.

ROY MILLIKEN UTICAS LIVE WIRE Not far from Yankton, S. D. lies the village of Utica. When the Press scribe lived in Yankton it had no newspaper, it had no under- taking parjors. it had no movies, it had no monument works, in; short it lacked many things. It 1 wns very much dependent on the mother eity of Vnnkton. Hut better days for Utica were, in sight when one of Yankton high schools twin athletes dropped in- to the burg and swept up. No fooner had ho decided to call it home when things began to be doing. Roy Milliken, well known hen* as the twin brother of Ray put in a printing press. Folks shook their heads, but Roy kept! smiling. From a few subscribers! his list grew ns time went on for Roy delivered the goods as In* had done in high school. Next he set, up a hardware store and this, too! proved a success. He was then en- couraged to provide the Uticans! yfith amusement. A movie started ! and it is going and growing still. His ambitions the.n reached into; the village council chambers to the; post office, yea even into the state legislature. Utica had no under-! taker. Ro« r Idled that want. He; next saw that the folks like con- crete memorials for their (lend, so! he sold them tombstones. Fords! were the only cars sold in town. Roy saw the need for a better car for his fellow townsmen and sold them C'hevrolets. Utica owes Roy much for he has filled their every j want lie could possibly fill except running their bank anil their butcheyshop. Here is wishing you j continued success Roy. j * NO EAST MAIL FOR FOUR DAYS, Last Saturday morning the Mil- waukee railroad, bridge at Chamb- i rlain went out again when the cable controlling the pontoon bridge snapned under the strain of the onrushing ice from further up stream in North Dakota and Mon- tana. As a consequence no trains! could cross. The ferry also was] unable to make the transfer. Mon-i day no mail came from the east.) Passengers wanting to cross from! this side got as far as Oacoma and j were either given a free return | ride or compelled to hire cars to \ make the crossing at Pierre. Tues-' day the same condition continued., •>n Wednesday some eastern mail trickled in by way of Philip and on the circuitous route via Pierre, and Rapid City. Early Wednesday afternoon the first mail came j across front Chamberlain when the bridge was repaired. Since then trains front ’he east have |*ecn from two to four hours late. P»ut, our good and patient folk do not mind a little thing’ like that. Jt is all in gettinc used to it. COMMUNITY SALE POSTPONED The adveiiised Kadoka Cmnmun- i’ySale did not come off last Satur- day afternoon owing to the incle- ment weather. The Farmers State Rank had lined up a nice line of goods including all kinds of agri- cultural implements, household goods, furniture etc. and were ex- pecting a big crowd for the sale. It you are in need of any of these articles, better come in and look them over. They may be just tin* thing that you are wanting. On the other hand if you have any- thing for sal«f list it with the hank and gel your good cash out of that which you do not want or need. This is an admirable clear- ing agency for the community.

Bill? Thought you went over to get shaved?” “Yeh-ah, I went over, but the shop was jammed full of bobcats. Not a chance to get into the chair." It wasn’t so long ago that Sister Susan first ventured timidly within the portals of the harbor shop. Now that the amputation of flow- iu tlosses has become “the thinjr,’' despite fast disappearing masculine ridicule and ever weakening dis- approval of old fashioned matrons. Sister Susan and a multitude of her fellow' bobkittens throng the ton- sorial workshops and clutter up the chairs formerly occupied by father and Brother Hill while waiting their turn. And now mother is joining the sorority of bobcats. First exclaim- ing in horror when thc idea is sug- gested, then wondering is she would look so awful after all, and finally accumulating the necessary courage to attempt the dire deco, mother bids gnodby to her flowing' locks and sends them fo the junkheap. Short hair is undeniably the mode. We have the marcelled maiden worrying over her wave.We have the straight haired brun- ette with her locks smoothed to the sleazy slickness of a peeled onion.And we have the increasing society of the Sliingledecker sisters, sport- ing a Senegambian swirl. More- over, as time goes on, the bobgrows bobbier, and the hair ends creep closer to the scalp. I’oor father! ’ His cozy seat atißernards the harlier’s is preemptedby a skirted customer. 4L feminineform sinks into its inviting depths and scornfully sniffs at the bath- ing beauties in the pink weeklies which father once viewed with de-light. Sprightly talk of clothes;ind cars and curling irons comesf rom the seat where father was wont to sit and save the country,lime passes and customs are alter- ed. Shall wc in a few more years view father sporting the hirsutedecorations of the House of David, coming home in the evening and wrestling with a frying pan jn an attempt to fend off faiipjpe, while mother waits downtown for her .-eiiii-monthly shearing? WiR therebe a sob son written, patterned after the pathetic ballads of the IHfs. running something like this:Within the brilliantly lighted ton- sorial palace a thong of gaily gar- bed women await the sound of thebarber's voice intoning a dulcet “Next." All is charm and chatter.Slowly the door opens and littleLeonard timidly peeks in, then silently tintoes across the floor to where his maternal parent is park- ’d and pi |ies this pijyful appeal: “Mother, dear mother, eome home with me now; The curfew is wailing its blast, And father is neck-deep in trouble at home—- t The poor man is weakening fast. The floor is unswept, the dishes un- washed, • And baby is damp as the sea.

Buffalo, elk, antelope, doer, mountain sheep and goats are put in enclosures right next to the highway leading through tht%park, thus offering every passing ear a chance to see them. The work of the commission will he greatly appreciated by the tour- ists for hitherto many have just driven their cars through the park and although looking for the rare native inhabitants of the Hills, never saw them because of the love of the wild game to retreat from public view. For the benefit of the visiting state editors last August, park authorities kindly rounded up their wild charges. Thus the state pencil pushers had a good view of the entire herds. This summer every one will have a chance to see at least a few specimen of the rare animals from his ear as he nasses on the beautiful highway. This act of thoughtfulness on the nart of the highway commission will surely be appreciated by the summer gvpsv tribe. It you have not seen them, good reader, make it a point and take the family there sometime this summer. You will he pleased with the park and its wild life. WHY NOT A LIBRARY HERE? One of the things that coopera- tion, the spirit of the times, might to Kadoka. is a public library. The long winter months are draw- ing to a close with the arrival of smiling old sol on Apri first and from now on there will be much diversion by moans of the auto- mobile aided by good roads and nice weather. However a scant six or seven months separate us from the season wnen evenings will again be long, when the snow flies and our good people are more or less compelled, as in other communities, to stay inside. It is then that good read- ing. books and magazines, will be most welcome. Right now' is the time to think of this and the Press would like to bring this mat- ter lo the attention of the memb- ers of our live clubs and lodges. There is a very active group of ladies in the Kadoka Womans club. The men of the Commercial Club call themselves boosters. We have half a dozen lodges with very active, progressive and public spirited members. To all these good and well meaning intelligent folk the Press would respectfully appeal to give this idea their thoughtful consideration. I* is not out of our reach ami will prove a blessing far beyond the cost of monev and effort put in. A library would provide good reading for both young and old and do away with a lot of dull evenings that can be spent profitably, education- ally in good reading. ITo old folks \v*Jl welcome it and it will give the young something to do aside from idle and harmful run- ning the streets with the harmful or •ompanvment it brings with it Co-oneration will “nut it over’ and “the suns rays do not burn un- it brought, to a focus.” Lot out •tubs and lodges consider this mat- tor at thyir meetings still to conn ! this soring and when the time ol ! eho* to“ da' s comes again some- tangible in this line can Ik I the result.

Each congressman is allowed to make oone appointment each year. This year the choice had been left to university authorities to nick the best eligible man and these gentlemen picked Alfred owing to his excellent qualification in the ; required lines £or admission.
