County Highway Department faces
biggest program ever, things put
With the appearance of nice
weatner in April, me county hign-
way department nas t»Ken on new
lite. Inere is a iusuc ami i.usi.e
which reminds one ot the busiest
time last summer, tractors, grad-
ers and other road machinery are
being taken ajiary and given a
thorough examination. Weak parts
are being strengthened and detect-
ive ones replaced by new, in order
that the machines may withstand
the hardest test of a seasons run
they have ever been put to. Vvhat
was once thought might be a slim
year for highway construction, is
now proving to be the biggest
ever. It will be remembered that
some of our county residents cir-
culated a petition asking for a dis-
continuance of all highway con- j
struction for two years. These;
good people, or at least many of
them have changed their minds,
when they calmly studied . cold,
facts as they were presented to
them and now they are asking for'
more and better roads. There arc i
enough petitions from townships!
on file where the minimum they |
ask for if given them, to tie up one j
outfit for the entire season. The |
other two of the three road making
equipments of Jackson county will!
be tied up on state work for at
least the major part of the summer.,
Even if the petition had been!
granted, Jackson county road I
makers would have been pretty;
busk folks indeed in spite of it,!
for the state is fairly begging to i
hire every available piece of road j
making machinery on contracts
for the season at the owners own'
terms by the hour, day. week;)
month or season.
The two big outfits will resume j
the state work on the Custer
Battlefield Hiway between here and
Belvidere where they left off after !
finishing nine oT the 16 miles taken I
up. The state is lice'ging now to
have these two outfits continue)
through to the east county line;
anff to finish the remainder of the
twenty eight and seven tenths
miles with the exception of the!
federal work sandwiched in lie-'
tween. When this work is done,
the next move will he unto the
Kadoka-Philip road a distance of
some 18 or 17 miles. As plans now
stand this road is likely to be laid
out for five or six miles due west
of Kadoka and thence straight)
north into Philip.
After finishing the Philip road
the big outfits will go west of town
preparatory to extend the 19 mile
straight shot west of town two
miles further and then south
through Cedar pass into Interior,
a continuance of highway 30 j
through to the county line and the
Bad Lands. Thin latter project;
however is still somewhat vague,)
inasmuch us senator Norbeck and i
congressman Williamson are work-'
ing hard to have the Cedar Pass'
country designated a national park
area. Should this mat‘Hafiz *, there!
would of course be. ; .o need of I
county or state highway v.o: k, l»e-'
cause Uncle Sam would >ee to that
better than our folks could afford j
Aside from this work mentioned, i
which will tie up two rigs for the i
season, the foilwing six townships j
have to date applied for work. It j
should be born in mind here by our j
readers first that all the amounts j
of work asked for are minimum |
requirements, which arc more often
doubled yea even trebled before a
rig is allowed to leave a particular
field. A case in j»oint hpre is In-
teroir township, which in the past
asked for 12 mijes and actually got
thirty two before roadmaking was
stopped there. Secondly it should
be kept in mind that none of the
unorganized townships have beert
taken into account and that many
of the others are about to apply
for road work but have not done
so as vet. The following have ap-
plied for amounts of work more or
loss, which usually means more:
Indian Creek, five miles.
Jewett, five and one half miles
Kadoka, five miles
Wall five and a half and one and
a half refinLshing
Bradv. five or six miles
Kadoka, four to recover.
Thirty miles of road making is
considered a good seasons work
with favorable weather. It is grati-
fying to note that one of Jac.kson
counties roadmakers covered a
total ‘of miles last year in-
spite of much rain. This same out-
fit opened up 47 miles of new road,
in the year 1922.
What can be done this summer,
can only be comjectured because
of the many elements entering in.
But it is very plain that there is
more work, to be done than the
outfits on the job can actuall” ac-
complish. Jackson count- has now
372 miles of graded roads and will
add to it rapidly accordingly to
the wish of the peonle of the
county. Fiftv new bridges and cul-
verts were laid down last year. No.
wonder Jackson county holds the
enviable position as a good roads
countv that, she does.
A part of the highway crew has
been blasting aw«| on Williams

BLACK AND SON
STACK HOC MARATHON
I What appears to us as a record
in long distance travel by the
. porker family was brought to our
• attention last Saturday when we
, found ourselves encircled by a herd
of well rounded swine on the
, governors highway near the river.
,I Hy actual count there were 109
head accompanied h> two diners
and a camp nutiit consisting of
two wagons containing feed and
other necessities enroute. The
whole was propertjrof F. G. Black
and son who live some eight miles
south of Wanblec and therefore
forty miles front Kadoka.
The long distance hike started
last Wednesday when seven miles
were covered and bivouac made a
mile south of Wanblec. The bristle
: bearers were fed their corn and
I sent to bed on the open prairie.| The next night fount) them on
ithe Quiver hill twelve miles this
! side of Wnnblee.
Friday night found them on the
north side of the basin and near:Kodak point.

Every one wondered at the con-t
ditioii of the pigs, who seemed tol
enjoy the gypsy trail. Not one had \
to la* carried on the accompaning
ambujance wagons and when Ed
Collins and Niels Nielsen laid their
experienced eyes on them, they
pronounced them the liest lot re-
ceived this season. The scales
placed them ns averaging 294 lbs.
Black and son returned happy to
their large ranch on the reservat-
ion with two loads of provisions ns
well as a credit of $2050 to the 1
good. No wonder folks like a i
country where such things can be
done and that more reasonably
than anywhere else in the IT. S. A.

Stanley Barber came through iHisle the 24th enroute to Sperry’s,
but on account of bad roads was
forced to abandon the trip and

However the balmy spring breez-

enticed him from the smell of inks

After a smooth slide down the

smile as the man who "showedSouth Dakotans what a great state1 they really were in a literary way.”j. After a brief explanation of hisinability of bringing Superintend-

' isq them to bring the gentlgman| early in the summer and the good

The Spnnish-Atjieriean war vet-

COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES
The first of the series of district
spelling contests to be held in this
county was held at Weta on Satur-
day April sth. The teachers as-
sembled for a very profitable meet-
ing in the morning. At noon Mrs.
Coleman served a delightful lunch-
i eon to all of the teachers after
wnich the pupils, parents and other
persons interested in the promot-
ion of better spelling gathered for
the contest. A very large number
was in attendance from Interior,
i which was included in the district,
and the contest beggn at 1:30 p. in.
I The pupils showed much interest
and gave evidence of much pract-
ice in the oft neglected subject of
spelling. The contest showed in-
i terest on the part of parents asi well as of teachers and pupils and
in the Weta district proved thor-
oughly worth while. After the
district contests at Kadoka, Belvi-
! (lore and Cottonwood, respectively,
the County Contest will be held at.
Interior on May 3rd. Do not forget j
The Board of Control hold a j
meeting at Weta last Saturday anil
made plans for a bigger and better
Jackson County Track Meet. They
have devised several events for
rural schools as well as for high
school pupils and every rural

THIS DISEASE ATTACKS
THIN CATTLE IN SPRING
Brookings, S. D., April 10. When
cattle are thin in the spring of the
year they are fit subjects for hem-
orrhagic septicemia. This is a)
secondary disease which attacks 1
cattle after their resistance is low-
ered by same other condition. It is ;
characterized by a high fever,
cough, and loss of weight.
“The germ that causes hemor-1
rhagic septicemia is present on
every farm and in many cases)
present in the normal animal,
states Doctor G. S. Weaver, State j
College extension veterinarian,)
“and when the animal's resistance
is lowered by a lack of feed, ship-
ping. or exposure, the germ gets
“The affected cattle develop a
fever, difficult breathing, and in I
some cases a diarrhea. The severe;
form may kill the animals very
quickly but generally the animal j
will live for several days and some;
of the chronic cases may recover.
The disease becomes primary after
getting started in the cattle but|
rarely goes through the entire I
“Treatment of the sick individ-
uals is not so very hopeful and pie-1
vent ion is far more important. The!
resistance of the animals must be!
kept up by proper care and manage-
ment. Vaccinations as a prevent-!
ive measure is being used at the
present time and while it is not:
entirely out of the experimental j
stage, it s ems advisable to vaccin- 1
ate the exposed animals when thej
disease breaks out in the herd. Alii
calves and older cattle that are)
affected with this disease should
be isolated so that they will not;
contaminate the food of the other
KADOKA CATTLE TOP MARKET
There is no money in cattle any;
longer has been the wailing cry of;
a lot of cattle men and as far as;
any one could ascertain their state-!
ments were puncture proof. Last i
week however Frank Wray brought'
evidence to the contrary to town
upon his return from Sjoux City,
where he had just marketed two
carloads of corn-alfalfa fed stuff
that was desirable on the marke f ,
at 9 cents. Cattle axe not so bad i
at that price, are they? j
Butte near Interior last week and
twx) hundred feet of white guard
wire and rail will be put down on
either side for the safety of travel.
Further blasting has been done in
Cedar Pass where also several I
bridges have been replaced with the i
more suitable steel culverts. On
Sears creek, on the lower road to
Weta and Interior, the bridge re-j
newed last year, where Ted
christ met his tragic fate, has
been also guarded with fifty feet
of guard rail on either side.
It is hardly expected that actual
road work can be taken up before
the first of May owing to the con-
dition of the ground, but it is
hoped that then civilizations pro-
gress will continue until the late
Assistant chief state highway
engineer Solgood accompanied by
R. L. Daveraux, a representative
of the U. S. Road Bureau, came
over from Pierre Monday and werejoined here by Roy Smith, state
district engineer of Rapid City
and our county highway superin-
tendent. These gentlemen spent
the day on location work of
state and federal aid projects in
One of their findings appears to
be the opinion of the U. S. man
not to cross the railroad tracks:
more than necessary and with that,
isf' in view his opinion was to
continue south of the track
through Belvidere and stay south
of the Milwaukee road for five or 1
six miles further, thus eliminating
two more dangerous crossings.
LOSES HIS MIND.
William Conquest was brought
in from Cottonwood Monday to
annear before the county board of
sanitv composed of Judge Pinker-
ton from Belvidere, Doctor Hen-
nings of this village, Dr. Cowan of
Cottonwood and the states attorn-
ey A. G. Granger.
The nn.tiont apneared entirely
oblivious to the proceedings of the
board. As witnesses S.-un Davis
and Elza Conquest a brother of
the man were heard besides Dr.
The opinion of the board was
that William Conquest had lost
his mental faculties but the ex-
ception of some lucid intervals
when he partially appeared to re-
cover. It was their opinion that
the sad state of the victims mind
was traceable to an accident that
happened to him some five years
ago when he was knocked uncons- jj cious for ten minutes by a stroke)
iof lightning. Since then he had!
| been actin' 1 ’ not like his former
The mental derangement became
acute last Tuesday when he was j
suddenly seized with paralysis of;
the left side while at work on the I
farm of James F. Bateman. Thej
latter being at the time here at
Kadoka attending the monthly!
meeting of the county com miss-;
ioners. Mrs. Bateman had quite a j
time with the unfortunate victim.)
In the evening his brother and
neighbors came out from Cotton-
wood and took him to the home of
his parents in Cottonwood Mr. and
Mrs. John Conquest, who have re-j
sided in this county for the last
sixteen years. The local doctor
was called as well as doctor Hen-j
nines from here, but all thev could
do i«’as to make the suffering of I
the natient less intense. During
the latter part of last week he re-
gained partial bodily control and
