D., FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 1924 THE KA OKA PRESS Reporter Vol. 16, No. 47 PRESBYTERIANS HOLD EASTER EXERCISES A pleasing Easter progra»m was harmoniously carried out by tne teachers and pupils of tne Presby- terian Sunday scnool at iUUtu last •Sunday morning. The high schuoi chorus adued much in tue musicat line and Prof. Corrington's oicues- tra, consisting ot nimseif and Wayne Shroll on the Violin, Laic and Harry rmgeten on the horns and Miss Thelma hhroll at the piano, gave some very fine sacreu selections. Individuals and groupes of the Sunday school gave musical and oral proof of tne fact that "the tomb was empty and Christ was risen indeed.” Rev. Bryan in a few well chosen remarks reaffirmed the Christian faith in the risen Christ and the immortality of the soul and that sometime, somehow like the seed placed in the ground apparently to die, we shall rise from our tomb and live with him in the life eternal.

THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL Did you stand on the platform in a little country schoonxou.se and make your first attempt at "speak- ing' pieces” by stammering out: "You’d scarce expect one of my j age To appear in public on the stage. ’ or, "Many fishes in a brook Daddy catch 'em with a hook”? ; It was the last day of school and ; mothers, fathers, and friends had come to hear the dialogues anil rec- itations in which the teacher had Iso carefully trained the children. | You were one of the youngest and I made your initial bow' - with the same classic half dozen lines that most beginners used. After “svpeak- in" was over you and your school-jmates told the teacher goodbye and | went home for the long summerj vacat ion. The last day of school !celebration is a good old American, •institution that ought not to be(abandoned. It was an expression l of good will and neighborliness, a(community gathering very muchj worth while. Of course it can be made somew'hat different now. tNone*)f us older folks care to say that it can we made better.) It is so easy to ho*' into the auto and run over to the schoolhouse for that last afternoon. School work i is different; the children have more poems, games; dialogues; music i land drawings to show their elders and they meet grown folks more naturally. The teaeher is not un- der the strain of making a show time of it but can have a school “at home” day. Whether you areja patron of a one-room school or! a good big consolidated school, bv i all means try to keen up the old. I fine custom of a “last day ofI school.” DEATH CALLS CHAS. E.

COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES (By County Superintendent) The regular District Institute and Spelling Contest tor the Belvi- dere district was held in the school building at Belvidere on Saturday April 19th. The weather, (being disagreeable, very windy and ! cohl, was responsible for a small attendance hut those who were i present had prepared a very inter-jesting and* instructive program, l'he Rev. Mr. H. Reseigh who has ! delivered a series of lectures at i this series of Institutes spoke on i the subject of A World Survey of i Education, which was very well re- ! ceived. Mr. Reseigh is a native of (England, having been in this country less than two years; he is a student of the subject of Educat- ion and has written quite widely on various phrases of the subject, as well as having lectured exten- sively in England. Several teach- j ers had prepared comprehensive j talks on subject matter on the j subject of literature which is the j cultural subject now under con-j sideration by the teachers. The spelling contest which ocour- ed in the afternoon was one of the most interesting yet held. Although the enrollment of contestants was very small it was found to be a very difficult matter to eliminate for winners. In the seventh and l eighth grade oral division this! was particularly true, Virginia Pier and Leoma Bennett spelling more than throe hundred words before the judges could reach a decision. Next Saturday the scr- ies of Spelling contests close at Cottonwood. The winners- at the ! various central points will gather at Interior on May 3rd for the County Contest to he hcldto deter-1 mine the contestants for the enuntv a? Huron in September. The spelling contests have aroused considerable interest and it is expected that the contest at In- te*-<or vrih he n hard fought battle with ex o’lent sr>°Uers representing of the districts in the enuntv. T''on ,t torirol to **e<r?«ster for the Jackson County Track Meet and 1 Coetoef imlv to Secv. J. H. T androth. Cottonwood ; JUDGE BARTINE DENIED MANuAMUS WRIT MONDAY A ruling by the honorable J. G. Bartine, of Oacoma, S. D. circuit 1judge of this district, was received here Monday, which is of much interest both to Jackson and Wash- abaugh counties. Claiming that the limit was overdrawn Jackson Counties auditor refused to issue further warrants for the! unorganized county of Washa-baugh, which is attached to this j county for judicial purposes. AtIthe March term of court Stanley IBarber brought action against the auditor to compel her to resume)issuing warrants. As has been mentioned in those: columns before, the judge took the case under advisement. His ruling this week upholds the auditor Miss .Anna Dithmer in her action of re-fusing to issue further Washa- haugh warrants. This will mean-that there are no further moneys to be spent by the unorganized countys highway hoard until July, when a new fiscal year will be started. Whether the plaintiff will appeal to the supreme court or not, is not known at this writing, hut rumors have it that the case is not to rest at this juncture. CHAMBERLAIN BRIDGE CON- TRACT HAS BEEN LET The Missouri Valley Structural Iron Company of Kansas City, Mo. was awarded the contract for ! building the new bridge at Chamb- erlain last week for a consideration of $346,000.00 only a few thousand dollars above the estimate of state bridge engineer Kirkham. Work is to begin at once and to he com- pleted by next June, i Congress has also authorized the building of the Pierre bridge and \ President Coolidge has signed the ) measure. The engineer is now 'drawing- up plans and bids are ex- pected to he called for in August. Work to begin this fall. WATER SYSTEM NOW FUNCTIONING The last of the broken water mpe in the lead to the watertower was , replaced last week and the big reservior is now' doing its full duty and water pressure is on hand , at all times. Our residents feel much relieved on this account foi it is both a convenieee to have ( water ”’hen wanted for use as well as a great protection in case of a fire. New customers are being added to the list right along and it won’t be long l>efore everv home within the village limits will have flowing water. ORATORICAL CONTEST The local high school nreliminar- oratorical contest will he held ( tonight (Friday) at eight o’clock at the Presbyterian Church. Five] contestants will take oart and an interesting program is -womised. \ Evervbodv is cordially invited toj attend. There will he no admiss- -1 ion charge Remember the hour, eight o'clock. PRESBYTERIAN CHURCHES MAKE FINE SHOWING i The spring meeting of the Pres- bytery of Black Hills convened in Sturgis April 15th., and closed the night of the 16th., with a popular .meeting at which addresses were {made by the field - secretary of Huron College and others. The womans Mis.imarj .society laid ,sissions in the church parlor while the. men were meeting in the church auditorium. A represent- ative of the Foreign Board fromj New York made several inspiring i addresses. It may be of interest toj those who knew her to learn that Mrs. V. J. Valentine who used toj lie here is Superintendent of thejSunday school of the Sturgis church. While most of the ses- sions of the Presbytery were taken ui> witii the routine affairs, it is j interesting to inform the readers; that the interests! of local churches and communities were carefully considered and planned for. It was the e-eneral feeling that while the denomination is called "Presbyter- ian” the churches rank as com- munity churches in that the bulk of the support comes from non- members and from those who are members of no church and that the welfare and integrity of these churches come first and the preach- ers take a secondary place. Great iov was -expressed by the Home Mission Committee on hearing that the linking of the churches of Ka- doka and Interior make it possible for these churches to he indopond-' ent, this year, of the Board of Home Missions. This is a big step in .advance and reflects great credit on the community considering the present financial straits. It is a boost, too. for Jackson County that the church in the County Seat stands on its own feet after all those vears of financial assistance from the Board of Home Missions. SUGGESTIONS FOR GARDEN AND ORCHARD (By Burley L. Keene) Garden Hints: Final preparation of the soil for seed should be made •only on land which is to be planted at once. It is well to cultivate the a planted portion once a week until seeding as this keeps the soil in better condition, conserves moist- ure and kills weeds. Do not at- tempt to work heavy soils when wet; they are easily puddled and become cloddy. Take a small , quantitiy of soil in the hand and press into a hall. If this can be ( easily crumbled, it is right for i working. Straight rows may easily be ! made hv stretching a line along i the location of the row and then I walking direetlw over the line taking short steps. The line is then moved to the next row and ?he row marked by footprints is ! onenod with a hoe and planted. The depth of planting depends no- on the soil, season and size of seed. ,Tt is customary to plant seeds so that thev v ill be three to four | times as deco, after packing soil, as the diameter of the seed. Sandy i soils refillire deeper seeding thanj loams or heavier soils. The seed- ing must he deeper in drv seasons than in moist ones. Orchard Hints: Undesirable var- ieties of apples may be top worked 1 to better varieties at this time of I the year. Growers have found that !by planting Hibernal trees which (are on Siberian Crab stock (roots) and top working these after|or four years to more desirable ,)varieties they have the best pos- sible combination for this section of the country. The Crab gives i vigor and hardiness in the root, the Hibernal hardiness and strength in the’trunk and main limbs and the third varietv gives quality *of 1 ! fruit. In planting orchard trees a large roomy hole should lie dug and the surface soil kept separate front the subsoil. Injured and broken roots are removed before planting. The roots should lx* spread out nnd surface soil packed firmly around them. The top two inches of soil should no» lx* packed, neither should a mound he left around the tree to shed the rain water.. Rather leave the soil level with j surrounding area and be certain. that the tree is as deep and pre- ferably two inches deefier than it(Stood in the nursery. I GET SOWS AND PIGS OUT ON PASTURE EARLY Brookings, S. I). Apr. 24 Natuio< tonics for young growing pigs are 'exercise, sunshine, plenty of green .succulent feed* and clean surround tings, my livestock specialists at .State College. The man who will he most successful in weaning a high average number of pigs for each sow kept on his farm is the man who wall plan t o take advant ago of these’ tonics. A large part of the success with the litter, therefore, will depend on getting the sow anrl pigs on pasture w’hcn the pigs are ton days to two weeks 1 old, or as soon after that age as 'possible. It is iust as important to health and thrift of the litter for the mother to get exercise as for the . BUSINESS CHANGES ON MAIN STREET'| C. A. Hunt buys Perault Hardware It was told in last weeks paper that Mr. C. A. Hunt of Sturgis, S. Dak. was favorably with the location of the Perault Hard- •ware business here. He came back the latter part of last week from nis home in Sturgis* closed the ideal and took possession last Satur* •lay. i Mr. Hunt is an intelligent, business like gentleman to meet and is right at home in his chosen business. Of late years he has been a successful business man in the heating and plumbing game at Sturgis and before that spent twenty years of useful experience in the hardware business at Rush- ville, Nebraska. He is a married man and will move his family here as noon .as suitable arrangements can lx* made. The Press would join the many good people of Kadoka in extend- ing the "lad hand of welcome to the new firm on main street, Hunt’s Hardware, as it will henceforth he known. J. A. Jones sells Pear Hotel Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Jones, prop- rietors of the Pearl Hotel for eighteen years, disposed of their hostelry last Friday to Mr. Hans H. Boock of Tripp, South Dakota. The new owner will take possession in a week or ten days. While welcoming the new busi- ness man to town, a few glimpses of retrospection are timely, especial ly when one of the businessmen's pioneer trio Jones, J. L. White and Doc Wellman are concerned in the deal. Jones set up a part shack, part tent restaurant and hotel just be- yond the original townsito, where now the residence of C. B. Gil- christ is located since the Milwau- kee Land Company then refused to let anv one build on their town-¦-ito. When the town lot sale«imo Tones bought and built where he still is. Rv their long term in busi- ness here Mr. and Mrs. Jones have • xibited the true pioneer spirit, faith in the country they settledin. It is with a feeling ef regret that we thus see the oldest huge- ness man in point of service leave 'he of activity to earn a well deserved rest. Kadoka and its manv good noople wish them well end also will be pleased to learn *hat these good people, although ’hev mav leave for a visit or two, have chosen to s'ay anchored \vl er' ?hey landed eighteen years ago. COUNTIES TO ADVANCE FUNDS FOR PIERRE BRIDGE John L. liockhart, secretary of the Pierre Commercial club return- ed home Sunday morning from his eastern trip, having vi.aited all the different counties on the Black and Yellow Trail from the Missouri river to the state line. He made addresses before commercial club, county commissioners, road build- ers and other bodies interested in the early construction of a bridge across the sMissouri river at Pierre. Everywhere Mr. Lockhart found a favorable sentiment toward the project, and when the matter of advancing aid by the several coun- ties was fully explained, help was promised, and he feels confident that there will be no difficulty in securing the needed financial as- sistance. The matter of extending credit in the wav of warrants by differ- ent counties will lx* taken up at the May meeting of the different hoards of county commissioners, •mrl arrangements have been made to have a representative* at these meetings t<» urge that the aid b'* extended. Haakon, Stanley. Hughes nd Hvde counties have already promis °d financial assistance, and with ?he other counties all favorable to the plan, there is no doubt what- ever. said Mr. Txiekhnrt, "that \y»> shall have funds with which to commence work on the Pierre bridot* this fall." I The state engineer is already!working on nlnn« for the Pierre i bridge, and it is now* almost a , certain tv that bids for >his pre- lect will }*• asked for in August. I Pierre Dakotan. I _ ; ROAD MAKERS ARE LIMBERING UP County Highway superintendent J. K. Buckmaatcr is rushing work lon the county road building out- ; fits as fast as possible. Two of them are now eager for the seasons , run. One of the outfits was taken (out for a trial Tuesday afternoon 'to jhe corner where the present road turns north to Philip. These 'four corners have been rounded last fall giving motorists a I'iUl sweep in ever direction,j It was here’where the road maker .snorted away for the afternoon pulling two graders for a half mile south and back. Its performance was satisfactory to the superin- tendent. It is hoped to have all machinery ready for an early seas- ons start next Monday. LITTLE BABY IS HORRIBLY BURNED TO DEATH The pathetic story of a gruesome tragedy in wnich a mother and a neipiess four months old babe play- ed the leading role, was brought to town Monday afternoon, when Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Liggett, living on a farm about four miles south ot Belvidere, came here with their unconscious little boy. His frail little body was terribly burned and his tiny, tortured muscles twitched as his mother with terror on her face but with a mothers hope in her heart handed the unfortunate little one to Dr. Hennings. The doctor saw at once that the case was beyond his aid. The baby had received a third degree burn and must die. Thus were the mothers high hopes dashed on the rocks of despair. Two hours later the baby passed on to the realms of the angels, leaving a sadly be- reaved father and mother. Its little body was interred in the Belvidere cemetery. Mrs. Liggett had just finished her dinner dishes Monday after- noon about one o’clock and not needing the kerosene stove any longer, turned it out in a spirit of thrift and economy. Leaving her little babe asleep in the house, she tended to her continually growing poultry family in the yard. While thus busy at her daily task, she was greatly shocked to see a sud- den cloud of black smoke issue from her home. She rushed madly for her domicile to rescue her im- periled baby. Enveloped by fire and dense smoke, a mothers love drove her on. Nearly overcome by the smoke and being badly burned herself she succeeded in bringing her precious load into the open air at the risk of her life. As she tenderlv hovered over the scared bodv of her little son, the home had become a madly burning torch. All was lost to the Liegetts hut the frail bodv of their son and heir writhing in the agonies of a fatal burn. Just how the fire started is un- known. It is surmised however that the busy lady did not quite "xtineuish the flame and that con- sequently ensuing p-ases exploded, thus causing the sudden fire. The sympathy of the entire countv goes out to these unhappy victims of unfortunate circum- stances. The lesson taught is one of caution for everyone when deal- ing with fires of any kind. FIRST TOURISTS NOW ARRIVING A sure sign that springs is really here inspite of the recent cold nights and chilly days are the tourists, who are now beginning to come. They have been coming for the past three weeks, but have never ventured to stay out nights in the park, choosing the comforts of the Hotel instead. Friday evening however the first one ventured to spend the night in the open. Saturday night two families from Columbus, Ohio bound for the oil fields at Casper, Wyoming, spent the night in the park. Sunday atternoon J. L. and R. F. F-o'er of Rodgers,. Arkansas pitch- ed their tent within the sheltering public confines of the village. These gentlemen had left the trees in bloom in their home state and were on their annual migration back to work at the Grand Canon Hotel of Yellow Stone Park. Close upon their heels followed W. R. Oestereich of Laßolt, S. D. with a big truck, implements, and a touring car and a crew of men. He made for Pass Creek basin Mondav there to erect guard fences along the federal aid highway.

NOTHER IMMIGRANT ARRIVES Alfred Ohlrogge of Chamberlain arrived last Saturday with a car- load of household goods and farm- ing implements. He started at once to unload and to move his property on the DeWeert place east of town. This makes the twelfth car of immigrants within the last couple of months. All are welcome in the land of “room enough”. i ime, South bakota. Department of History X
