The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - February 29, 1924, Kadoka, South DakotaPress. Vol. 13. N0.42 KADOKA, S. D., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1924 THE KADOK PRESS Kadoka Wants 4 Electric Lights ¦CITIZENS UNITED TO BUY A MODERN PLANT THAT WILL SERVE LOCAL NEELS [ While the charred remains ol t the light, inant were still warm • last week a group of progressive | boosters met 10 discuss h\nv best ito serve the future needs ol the : village as far as lighting is con- cerned. A committee was appoint- ed and they met last Friday nignl with the vibage board to lornnt- late a program. . Jlopiesontatives of lighting units were wired. Sam Magulis, of the Dclco-light fame, was the first man on the scene and explained his plant be- fore these gentlemen Saturday night. On Monday A. W. Johnson ap- peared from Aberdeen as repre- sentative of the Fairbanks Morse people. Ho too stated his plan of what he thought was best adapted to the needs of Kadoka. Both representatives stayed over until Tuesday when they appeared before the members of the com- mercial club in session during the evening at the Hotel Dacotah and plead their cause. The club did not recommend any particular plant, hut listened carefully to what was said for and against the different proposi- tions. It is thought probable that before action will be taken, that a delegation of business men will go to a place where some of the equipment recommended has stood '•.he actual test of performance of what is claimed for it. It is gratifying to note that Kadoka as a unit wants light ami • hat of a kind that it can afford and needs taking into due consid- eration the future growth of the community. A rush pal mnl for the first thing offered might bring again the bitter regrets of past experiments. Let everyone look carefully now before ihe lean is made. Let interested ’folk;: make their suggestions now o v else for eve 4’ hold their peace. Th< board and the committee are anx- ious to get the right outfit and af- fair minded men are open to sug- gestions. wh’oh they wi'l care fully weigh. Everyone is anxious to have the button turned On as soon as possible but no one sug- gests to throw caution to the wind. A week or two of investigation wHI not seriously hinder ’ program and it will give the n > i < h"rgc time to choose hot! ".r i ami well. NEW SETTLERS ARRIVING The earliest birds in the raw settler line began to ?"r ive this Thursday morning whe._ ijCo Ven- der May brought up two more car- loads of goods and drove his truck over land. He will farm in real earnest on his half section near Wanamaker. Ho was here with a carload from Ethan last fall. Christ Johnson brought one more carload from Woonsocket, S. Dak. He will occupy his new buildings four miles northeast of Kadoka. Five miles west of town R. A. Holter of Guthbert will go to farm- ing. He also has a carload of com- plete and modern equipment of the tracks. Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Lee of Mit- chell came by train this morhing just ahead of their carload of goods and farming equipment. They will truck their stuff across country to four miles north of Philip where they have bought a farm. This is the vanguard of n stream of new settlers, who with their methods of diversified farming, will turn the west-river country into a granary that will compel still more attention than it has this far. Let us welcome them all and give them the glad western hand of helpful welcome. COURT CONVENES NEXT WEEK The Court calender is in the hands of the printer this week. Coprt will convene rin March 4th, ’next Tuesday. Five criminal cases and ten civil cases will occupy the time of Judge and jury. Besides these there are seven court cases to be settled.

Kadoka has lost in him a eongen- jial and provtress iw business man. who will sadly be missed in th< ! councils of the business men and 1 whose memory will lie cherished i long. ; Charles Orlando Perault was born on September 23, 1871, at Mori ison, Illinois. His nippy boy- hood days were spent in this same village and there too he received his education. When school days wort' over, ho joined his fa, her in | the implement business and proved : ! himself • a valuable aid to his : father. In the ( ’il home town lie met wooed and married Victoria Reed in 181)2. Sixteen more years they < Eved there in happy married Jnion and four children came to them to gladden their lives. The call to the west reached j them there in 1908 when the fam- ily moved onto a farm of the fa- ; ther at Clark, S. Dak. The spring 1 of 1919 saw the family on the ’ : move once more and this time the | destination was Kadoka. For a year Mr. Perault was in business with Mr. Steve Hurley, who was then an implement dealer.| The following year he bought out J the Rochdale store. Here he cy*n- ! tinned in business until he was j stricken down the day after Christ- mas. As has been recorded in these columns, his struggle for life has been a hard and strenous one. Re- covering from an operation for in- testinal rupture, bronchial pneu- monia set in with all its dangers. This overcome, an abcess developed :on one lung and another crisis ‘drew near. Once more out of dan- ; ger, another and more dangerous I abcess developed on the other lung. The battle of attrition be- tween life and death had now- reached its last and final stage, when the abcess burst the patient i was too weak to turn over to say ! nothing of having the vitality necessary to throw’ off the mucous of the abcess. The angel of mercy gently carried him to his creator at 10:30 A. M. February 21. k For five full weeks Mrs. Perault ! and his son Bert faithfully watch- ed at his bedside, and tljeir pres- ence was a great comfort to him. Until the last he was conscious .and always interested in hi* friends and Kadoka. The weekly ! visit of the Press was a delight to j him. i The entire community extends to Mrs. Perault and the family ‘their heartfelt sympathy in which the Fit> v. ouid iiu.'t iv poet fully join.
