The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - April 22, 1910, Kadoka, South DakotaTHE KADOKA PRESS. KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 1910 Startling Figures Again South Dakata. Much of this is di e to the extensive advertising done by the railreads and other enterprising parties during the past few years, and the opening of the free homestead lands, but it is not entirely due to the idea that here one can obtain some- thing for nothing. People generally, know that things which are given away now-a-days have a joker string- tied to them somewhere. The Press has in the past madt NUMBER 51 ????????? ???????????????????•?????? : The Kadoka Harness Shop. * Light and Heavy Harness made to order. Saddles, Blcnkets, Robes. ?

Abstract & Loan Co. statements in regard to the financial standing of Stanley county based up- on the sworn statement of the county auditor to which the editor of the Belvidere Times takes exception and accuses us of fibbing, or in other words of lying wilfully. Now we are willing to take the county treasurer’s rnd auditor’s state- ments as correct and we do not care to indulge in the figure juggling pro- position to the extreme indulged in by the Belvidere editor. He knows very well that the figures submitted are correct, but by a few peculiar statements and juggles he wishes to make his readers believe that black is white. Can he do it? To take his statements let us see what he says of the item of the audi- tor’s statement which shows §70,457,- 20 of unpaid tax for the years 1892 to 1907 inclusive. “This taxes is yet more hopeless than money loaned to a friend. It dates back So years was a personal levy on range cattle and the beef has long since been eaten and their hides long since worn out as shoe leather. This fund would build pretty tlimsey court houses. Doubtless the county treasurer would be overly pleased if he could realize onlv §IOOO out of the whole lump.” This is his statement, yet we note from the statement cf the auditor dated March 31, that some §22,997,60 was collected during the quarter. How does that look a* compared with Bro. Rev. Clough’s mfcAuly guesswork thousand. Then he coolly chops the court house and fixtures fund' which figures as a resource of §35,000 down to §7,000 and takes that as a basis for figuring the resources of the county. Then he takes the total of uncollect- ed tax and the cash in the treasury’ which he figures at $359,£68.01 and devided by five as he says onlv one fifth is county money. When he knows that that is not a true state- ment. The Press is not willing to retract any of its statements and still insists that the resourses of Stanley’ county exceed the liabilities. Mr. Clough invites the publication of the county treasurer’s statement of the county funds and we herewith publish the same: Co. Funds Other Funds State Tax § 2700 88 Insane.....§ 2114 83 County General . 3736 14 County School. 2070 38 County Bridge.... 7396 88 County Sinking... 34540 50 County Institute.. 313 49 District Schools.. 17315 22 Ft.

Almost as much cash on hand as Bro. Clough is willing to allow as the total resources of the county. The Last West. Few people of the east have any- thing near a conception of what they willfind when they come west. “Way out west” is to the ordinary easterner a mythical something, which seldom takes a tangible form but just pre- sents to their minds a panorama of constantly changing scenes, vary ing from an impregnable wilderness to the wild stretching plains, and on to the rugged mountains with then-peaks reaching up beyond the snow line. It is the great west which produces gold in abundance, bountiful harvests, cattle, cowboys, coyotes, Indians, droughts, blizzards, and some liars. And speaking of the latter product, it is not a native of this section, but the seed was introduced a good many- years ago, and the climate and Soil were conducive to a liberal growth, and no doubt before long the also boast of producing its fullsftere of to the order of Ananias. South Dakota is one of the best ad- ¦ vertised states in the Union. Every* where you go people are talking about This spring there are hundreds of homeseekers coming to South Dakota and other western states who have never been here pefore. It is inter- esting to note what the first impres- sions of the different people are. Same expect to find a veritable wilder- ness, with only a scattering claim shanty or rancher, while others ap- pear to wonder wonder why the coun- try is not settled up as eastern lowa, Illinois, or other old farming sections. Well, there is a reason, both why it is and why it “taint,” and the reason is too obvious to require going into detail. It has been truly said that “we are at the eve of the lust great west.” In another generation there will be no east nor west, except as an indi- cation for locating one place from an- other. At the rate that population is pouring into the west, the prices of land are bound to go higher, and with the high valuation will come the im- provements and intensive cultivation, which has been the experience of all older sections. When Horace Greely said, -‘Go west young man, and grow up with the country,” the west was as it is now, but the wisdom of the advice is just as sound as itwas then Harry Wentzv in Pukwana Press. The mother who allows" a 16 year old daughter to float around the town- ship in a top buggy until 2 a. m. with a counterfeit sport of weak jaw and ; weaker morals, only opens the front • door to grief and disgrace. If you don’t know what company your girl keeps or what time »>f night she turns in, your roar when the gossips get busy will sound about as pathetic as the wheeee from a jewsharp. The girl*who insists on spooning with everybody in the corjorate limits | ought to be backed into the woodshed and relieved ot her overflow of affec- tion with a No. 11 slipper haid care- lessly across her hiplets. We would sooner see a girl kiss a blind shoat through a barb-wire fence than have her change partners she nights a week in the front parlor with the lights turned low. It is harder to marry off a girl who has been pawed over by every yap in the community than it is to fatten a sheep on pineapple juice. You can’t gold-brick a sharp-eyed suitor with second-hand goods any more than you can fit a bathrobe on a goat. There are lots of weak-mind- ed parents who are going up against the judgement day with about as much show as a cross-eyed girl in a beauty show, and their children will rise up and call them blessed withthe enthusiasm of a one-legged man at a club dance.—X.

This ticket named as candidates for town trustees the present board. J. A. Jones, J. L. White and Victor Wolff. There was also considerable talk on the question of licence and no license and there were those who predicted that the result "would be close, not- withstanding a 3 to 1 vote last year. License carried by a vote of 55 to 17. There was a total of 73 votes cast, the vote on town officers being as follows: Trustee for Ist District, J. C. Pease 34 J. A.

The new board have several import- ant matters to carry out during the coming year. The principle proposi- tion is that of waterworks. The pres- ent board has had the matter under consideration but have been blocked by legal difficulties which made defi- nite action impossible. It is to be hoped that these difficulties may be removed and that the waterworks question can be worked out in the ! near future. The town hall question is also up to the new lioard for their I action and it remains to be seen what I steps will be taken. The old board have made an envi-1 able record in the matters of town improvements. No town west of the , river, of its age, has better sidewalks, ! cross walks and street lights than has | Kadoka and we are all proud of this ' fact. The new board is composed of men j who have the interests of the town at I heart and we have no doubt will lend | their best energies to bring about needed improvements in our city. The election is over and the differ- ences of our people have been settled lor another year. Let every resident of our fair little city meet on a com- mon level and work for our town and to make Kadoka the best town in this part of the country. Lets all be boosters. Nearly Asphyxiated.

He man- I aged to get the windows and door 1 open and called a doctor and soon the danger was past. The stove pipe of j the hard coal stove had slipped out |of the chimney and thus the house j had become full of gas. Mr. and Mrs. Reidinger and Miss Mary Sima who |is staying with them were all very , sick from the effects of the gas, but under the doctor’s care were soon resusticated and in a day or two will feel as well as ever. It was a close call however and Frank declares that be don’t care for a similar experience again. Mother’s Day. “A mother’s love is the golden link that binds youth to age; and he is still but a child, however time may have furrowed his cheek or silvered his brow, who can recall with a soft- ened heart, the fond devotion or the gentle eludings of the best friend that God ever gave us.”—Bovee. In appreciation of the tender regard in which we all hold our Mothers and in consideration of the beautiful cus- tom, which has recently become, established of observing one day in each year as “Mother’s Day and in further appreciation of the value to the nation of perpetuating such a cus- tom, I, Robert S. Vessey, Governor of the State of South Dakota, do here- by set apart as Mother’s Day, SUNDAY, MAY 8, 1910, and I respectfully request and recom- mend thattheday beobterved through out the Commonwealth. I especially urge that appropriate addresses and sermons be given in the various churches, and the white, flower, the ' symbol of Motherhood, be much in evidence. At the mention of the word ‘Mother,’ visions of youth and innocence come back to us from the dim vistas of the past and we again scent the fragrance of the lilacs and the roses of the long ago. It seems fitting that we should <•: deavor to show our respect, love and reverence for the Mother who has been with us, shoulder to shoulder, on our journey through the valley of childhood and youth—cheering us when wo were victorious and always loyal and sympathetic, even when we suffered defeat. If your mother is with you, show that you appreciate her. If you have only a glorious memory, cherish it. Given under my hand and the Great! Seal of the Capitol in Pierre, this 7th day of April, A.
