Base Ball Club Organized.
1 Last Friday evening a meeting of
j the representative business men of
j our city was held and a ball team to
. represent Kadoka during the season
j < f 1910 was organized. J. M. Williams
j was elected manager and A. G. Skrove
- secretary-treasurer of the ball club,
p A subscription paper was circulated
the first of the week and over $l5O
* has already been subscribed to keep
the team going. Nineteen men have
k signified their intention of trying out
k for the team and from this number a
i good fast bunch of ball tossers should
, be selected. Now that the team is
, organized and getting into playing

5 Raise More Potatoes.
k There are only seven states in
k America, —Maine, Michigan, Wiscon-
> sin, Minnesota, Colorado, Oregon and
Idaho that raise a surplus of potatoes,
says an exchange. Some years Cali-
* fornia gets in the list but not always,
¦ South Dakota never does, yet the
> finist potato land in the United States
is to be found in the Dakotas. Pota-
’ toes need attitude, the two states
t both have at.itude and sunshine and
the yearly income through humble ’
potato could easily be raised several
million dollars. There is no state in
the Union that can produce potatoes ,
ot a better quality than South Dako-I

Returned In Five Days.
’ Perhaps one of the most peculiar [
and laughable incidents that ever I
came before the clerk of courts oc- ‘
i cured this morning when a certain j
party who had received his first nat- I
uralization papers five days ago re-¦
turned with the remark. “Well, I’m
here. I guess my five days are up.”
He was informed by the clerk that
I there was no call for his return in
five days that he knew of and began
i| examining the papers for a possibleerror. His attention was called to’; the envelope instead in which the'I papers had been enclosed and on iwhich were the words: “Returnin’[five days to the clerk of courts.”—|Chamberlain Register.
Fire At Midland.
About five o'clock Sunday afternoon
the residence of J. C. Russell was dis-
covered to be on tire. The twochem-
ieal engines were quickly rushed to
? : the scene of trouble, and water from
J a force pump in the rear of the store
« was used to a good advantage. The
fire was subdued by hard and intel-
t ligent work, but the contents of the
? house were badly damaged by the
e water ami chemicals. The origin of
the tire is a mystery. The family
? was away from home and the house
4 locked up. Some smoke was first
J seen issuing from the roof of the kit-
* chen, around the chimney, and the
« supposition is that some defect in the
J flue allowed fire to escape into the
? attic, where it must have smouldered
4 a long time before making its pres-
J ence known. There is no fault to be
* I found with the work performed by
4 I those chemical engines. It is evident
J that without their aid the house must
have been consumed, and if it had
4 burned other property would m all
1 , probability have gone with it. In or-
? der to show that he appreciates the
4 work done by the fire coni],any with
? | the chemical engines J. C. Russell
? has made the fire company a present
4 of a check for fifty dollars. It is in
t order for everyone to render thanks
? to those chemical engines and the
? men who handled them, for if that
lire had once gotten beyond control
there is no question but what the
Russell store and in fact every other
; building in the block would hayegone
Jflk up in smoke.—Midland Mail.
