A New U. S. Commissioner for Kadoka.
For nearly a year Kadoka has been
without a U. S. Commissioner and
those who needed the services of such
an officer have been forced to go else-
where to transact their business.
Some time ago apetition was circulat-
ed and was generally signed by our
citizens, asking that D. C. Weesner
be appointed to the place which has
been vacant since W. C. Meyer mov-
ed away last summer. Mr. Meyer has
until recently held the appointment
but has resigned, and on last Monday
Mr. Weesner received notice of his
oppointnient. He will at once enter
upon his duties and those wishing to
file on land or make final proof may
do so before him here in Kadoka.
This will be welcome news to the
people in the vicinity of Kadoka who
have occassion to need the service*
of such an officer.
We understand that Mr. Weesner
willhave on office at the Kadoka
State Bank where he may be found.
We are glad to make this announce-
ment and trust that all of our citizens
willbear it in mind and give a home
man the preference.
Arbor Day Proclamation.
Governor Vetmey has inaued the fol-
lowing Arbor day proclamation:
"Whereas, the annual observance .
of Arbor day has encouraged the sen-
timent in favor of tree culture, notj
only for the purpose of adornment, ¦
but for it« economic value as well, and '
"Whereas, the springtime chimes;
of another year are now sounding|
throughout the land, and earth’s I
beautiful symbol of regeneration and |
rejuvenation are again in evidence;!
Mother Nature shyly whispers to us
her secret and the story she tells is '
sweet to our ears and gladdening to
our hearts. She asks our assistance
and it should be freely and joyfully
given for by assisting her we advance
ourselves. The planting of trees and
the cultivation of flowers and shrub-
bery is conducive to real home build-
ing, and upon home are the hopes of
the nation builded. We need the
trees, not only to protect the soil,
conserve the moisture, afford shelter
and shade to the beasts and birds,
but they are a delight to the eye and
a solace to the heart of mankind.
“Now therefore. I, Robert S. Ves-
sey, governor of the commonwealth
of South Dakota, do hereby issue this
proclamation designating and setting
apart as Arbor day, Friday, April 22,
1910, to be dedicated to the planting
of trees and to the dessimination of
information which may cause the
citizens of this state to realize the im-
portance of having trees around their
homes, along the streams and in the
cities and towns. I would especially
recommend that appropriate exercises
be held in the public schools through-
out the state and that trees and shrubs
be planted upon the school house

The Census Bureau, prior to

farm owner and tenant in this
state a blank or schedule contain-
ing the Census questions relative
to farm operations and equipment
This should be filled up, if possi-

to fill it up by that time, he should
do itas soon afterwards as he can.

The President has issued a proc-
