The Kadoka Short Course and Farm- ers’ Institute which was held last in a three day short courne, was a big one. The way in which he handled the work shows that he is not a nov- ice. He is especially strong in his com and grain work, while his work was very creditable in all departments. He has served entirely without re- compence in a financial way but the hearty appreciation and expressions of good willon every hand willmore than repay him for his efforts. He has started a work in this locality which will in the future be a factor which willdo much for the prosper- ity and succeratul ht i aker of this country. A movement is air multi >av to provide for a two wvVs short course next winter and ovt 1 on- hundred and fifty dollars has already been pledged to secure help from abroad and make a splendid work for next winter. Scotty Brown has the matter in charge and expects to give every farmer an opportunity to assist in making the course next winter the most successful ever held in the state. The work as given by Mr. llaulman was an eye opener .to a great many and many facts were brought out of which they never had given a thought. For example two ears ot corn were selected one with a large cob and shallow kernels the other with deep kernels and small cob. The two ears weighed just alike. Then the corn was shelled and the corn and cob week was a success in every sense of the word. The weather was very au- spicious until Saturday when a bliz- zard prevailed most of the day, but did not keep all at home who were taking the work and some twenty- five were present and took the work on that day. As first planned it was expected that only three days would be given up to the work but the interest was so great that the corn and grain work was extended over an extra day at the request of the class. The success of the enterprise rests wholly with Harry *E. Haulmau pres- ident of the Commercial Club, who had previously has experience in thin work and who planned and carried out the work practically unassisted. When the work was first talked of there were those who were rather in tabard to Mr. Haulmap’s ability in line but now that the worn is done, these same persons are as enthusiastic as they were skeptical. The Press was from the very start very much interested in this work and for that reason has used many columns of space in boosting the prop- osition and is very much gratified to know that there has been such a gen- eral response on the part of our farm- ers. The proposition which Mr. Haul- mail undertook when he proposed to assume charge and give instructions This is only one of the numerons instances which we.e brought out during the work. Butter—Sweepstakes, Mrs. Jas. A Gr>>ss. Ist J. A. Wavra. 2nd Mrs W. D. Park. On Friday night a program was rendered at the Opera House, The program opened with a selection by the Kadoka Quartette.

D., Jan. 26. —While it will 1 be midsummer before the last of the workmen are out of the new capitol of this state, many of the state ofii- 1 cials will be located in their new 1 I quarters before the final finishing is , ' put upon interior work in some parts :of the building. In fact, the officials expect to begin moving into the build- ' iug by the first of March and the city ' which purchased the old building, his < orders to get it off the grounds in , April, as it is expected everything , willbe moved out by that time. The work yet to bo done is the com- < | pletion of the marble finishings, the final closing up of the interior decora- | tions, and a small amount of carpen- i ter work. j, MOST DECORATIVE WORK DONE. ( W. G. Andrews, the contractor of ¦the decorative work, says he has full 1 76 per cent done with that part of the |' work, and can complete all but the * mural work in a little more than thir- ( ty days. Mr. Andrews has just re- turned from a trip east, in which he found the mural work, which is be- ing done by E. H. Blanshfield and 1 Edward Himmons, both of New York, 4 and Charles Holloway, of Chicago, is well along and he thinks iie can have , all the paintings in place before the first of June, but this work will not not In the least delay the occupancy of the building. The marble wort; is 4 well along, all the pillars having been « placed. Most of the wainscoting is , in place and the placing the balusters and stair treads is being pushed. On account of the demand for room ‘ the commission has added a large , amount of space for storage in the basement, by having the whole of the ' basement floor concreted, thus mak- 1 ing a large amount of storage room. ; NOT EUNDS ENOUGH FOR GROUNDS. , The work on the grounds is also be- j ing pushed, hut with the present ap- i | propriatior at the command of the | commission about all of which can be 1 ! done in that way is in the grading I and leveling. The commission has be- | gun the preliminary steps toward se- curing a mumber of lots along the eastern end of the grounds by con- demnation, to give the required space for the lake to located on the east- ern end of the grounds. Contractor Olsen lias pushed work from the start, and will be ready to turn over u completed building to the commission under the contract time, regardless of the fact that numerous changes,, which would extend his I time, have been asked for in the pro- -9 gress of the work. The people are to I have a fine building, absolutely with- j I out taxation for that purpose, funds i " 1/iving been provided by sales of state ' lands. Call For Warrant*.
