The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - March 18, 1910, Kadoka, South Dakota£7<J J- *LAs # § THE KADOKA PRESS. VOLUME II KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1910 NUMBER 48 County Division Petitions for Division of Jack- son County being generally sign- ed. Advantages of Division. Circuit Court Proc’d’gs. A Brief Resume of the Various Cases and the Disposition of them to Date. County Division is still the mosi prominent topic under discussion in this “m ek ’o the woods.” The Jackson county petition liaye more than the rexuired number of signers at the present time but work willnot stop ss long as there is any- one who wishes to attach their names. The bad roads the past week have somewhat delayed the work but the i required numbi ¦¦ of signers lias been secured nevertheless. While there has been a sentiment expressed in some localities in favor of no division, those same localities have expressed a desire that if the county was to be divided that it should he, so far as the south end was concerned, along the old Jackson j county lines. Everyone realizes that a division of [ the county is desirahia but some are deterred from joining in favor of the proposition for the reason that they are afraid of increased taxes. In our last issue wo showed up the ' tax proposition and how Jackson \ county could be organized and op- erated without a cent of extra ex- 1 pence to the tax payers. The portion whicli Jackson county 1 would receive of the resources of . Stanley above liabilities would build and equip the court house. At the t present rate of tax levy on the 1999 assessment ovtr $25,000 could be rais- ed to run the new couuty and this would bo greatly increased each sue- 1 (•ceding year by the newly proved up I lands being added to the tax roll and ¦ by the improvements in the various towns of the county. Then think of the indirect tax which will1)0 saved by every taxpayer who lias to make a trip to the couuty seat. Now it costs anyone living on the Milwaukee line from fifteen to twenty- live dollars to make such a trip when if we had a county seat near at hand tin* cost would be comparatively small. The two-county divisionists argue t hat the time is not ripe for a lour county divide Out cut the county in two and then when the country is older cut it again. This may sound good to some but not to tho Jackson countyites. Now is the time to divide and have this Millinery | Opening | Friday and Saturday March 25-26,1910 “In the spring a young girls fancy, Lightly turns to thoughts of style, And the ‘Chickest’ Easter Bonnet, Is the only thing worth while.” We have them at the Kadoka Hat Shop The newest shapes, the most stunning effects ever produced in the Millinery Line. Pretty Favors will be presented to every lady visiting our shop on opening days. z=z-r~zzr:-=zzz 1 1 bs - : :: 1 ¦ ~-¦¦¦ ¦: i ¦ Peterson Sisters bickering and strife between towns over for all time. With the county divided we will have a better opportunity to say where ovr money shall be expended and that the permanent improvements of the county are put where they will do the most good. There is every reason for the re- establishment of old Jackson eountj and no valid reason against it. We invite every reader to make a study of this pro}*,sition and be convinced in this matter. CIRCUIT COURT. The March term of court opened Tuesday morning with Judge Bouch- er presiding. One case against Philo Stevens '.’as removed from the calendar and the other was continued. The cases against Harry Brooks, Paul Wood and Frank Conway were continued on account of defendants being fugitives from justice. Elmer Zigler changed his pica from Not Guilty to Gilty in the well-known horse stealing case in which he was associated with Toni Barnes and Henrj Oakes, and was sentenced to six months in tho penitentiary at Sioux Falls. The light sentence was probably duo to this defendant’s atti- tude throughout the trials and the willing maimer in which ho disclosed his guilt and the actions of his asso- ciates in crime. The State of South Dakota versus Almeda llcdding was taken oil the j calendar in one instance and left on in the other, the defendant having left, the county and state. States Attorney Johns ni insisted )n leaving the case of the State ver- ms Lsaac McCoun on the calendar. ! It willbe remembered that McCoun was sent to Sioux Falls for life at the ast term of court for one of the mur- lers lie committed at. Kadoka last >- ear, and the case now on the calen- 1 lar is the one charging Him with the ither of his crimes. His attorney, Mr. Hughes, suggested that the con- tusion of his life sentence would be •ather a poor time to try him again, jut Uie case still sticks. Two cases against Raymond Ches-, ler were continued. Chesser is now i loing time at Sioux Falls for one of- ence. The State of South Dakota versus General W. Masters, formerly of Ot- iunuva, was dismissed. Henry Krueger was lined $20.00 for insisting in an assault UDOtione of his lcighbors named Decker This is the wine ease in which Itoss Whittemore was fined at the last term of court. Die action against Mrs. Lucille Whit- emore was dismissed. Roy Foster, who is charged with sei-jury in connection with the Tom Barnes horse steal 1 ! -asc. appeared n court and stated tha ••. ith- iut an attorney and without 1 . .iafty oi, Stejdiens having refused lu •ontinue as attorneys in his case II WlVliau M>. « —IWWIIII without the necessary coin being forthcoming. George Philip wasaj- pointed by the court and the case will come up later. The first real trial of the term was the case of the state versus Willard Leach for shooting at a horse belong- ing to ins neighbor, Henry Ellis. The , case went to the jury Wednesday and verdict of ucquittal was brought in Thursday morning. Watson Fletcher plead guilty to selling drug store whiskey without a license and was allowed to pay a fine of $50.00. As we go to press the case of the State versus P. A. Cavanaugh is being tried. Pete lias been in the saloon business at Midland the past two years and a building across the street from his place of business was recently rented for school purposes. Com- plaint was made under the law which, forbids a saloon being conducted with- in three hundred feet of a school building, and Pete is now ascertain- ing whether or not he willhave to moye. Later: —At the conclusion of the testimony Judge Boucher directed the jury to return a verdict in favor of the defendant, no cause of action having been shown to exist by the testimony of the state. Therefore Mr. Cavanaugh was found not guilty.— Fairplay. The case of the State vs. Joseph Kukal in which the defendant was charged with shooting a horse belong- ing to Wm. Coyle, came up Friday and went to the jury who returned a verdict of not gilty and the defendant was discharged. A. G. Granger of Kadoka appeared for the defendant. The case of State vs. Ed Freemole of Weta charged with selling liquor without a license, was continued un- til the next term of court and the witnesses sent home. The case of the State vs. John Res- sigue of Stamford was tried Saturday and the jure found the defendant not guilty. is the ease in which H. F. Granger of Stamford as complain- ing witness had John Ressigue arrest- ed for assault and the preliminary hearing was held before Justice Stev- enson in this city. Seed Corn Tests. The McCaull-Webster Elevaton Cc. writes us that they have been mak- ing many tests of corn in this terri- tory to determine its germinating qualties for seed. Out of some twenty-five tests made from as many cribs of corn, both old and new, only two would germinate high enough for seed. A few of the others tested 50 per cent, which is en- tirely too low to plant, while the bal- ance was absolutely dead. Old corn they sav, so far as their tests have up. i wen absolutely value- -1 - or ,as most of it is entirely dead as to germination. They also call attention to bimilar tests which have been made in lowa under the supervision of Prof. Hold- en of the lowa Agricultural College, at Ames, in which 100 ears taken from as many cribs from different parts of tho State of lowa, were test- ed. Of these only eight ears showed germination high enough to plant. Thirty-three ears showed germination but too weak to plant, while fifty- nine ears were absolutely dead. In their opinion, this matter of seed corn is one of supreme importance to the farmer, aH well as all other class- es in a corn territory, and they strong- ly urge that all classes of business men try to make this matter of poor seed as public as possible so that the the farmers will begin in time to se- lect and test the corn that they in- tend to plant. It is their opinion that every farmer should test for germination, each ear corn selected, for while the corn may look good, when tested it may show absolutely no germination at all. This also holds good when farmers are buying seed corn from others. They should be sure that the germi- nation is guaranteed to be at least 90 j>er cent; but take nobody’s guaran- tee —test the corn themselves before planting. A very simple way to test corn for germination is to select the ears, take the number of kernels desired from each ear—say ten ears and ten kernels from each ear. Them place these kernels between several thicknesses of thick cloth, thoroughly wet the cloths and place in a warm room which is never allowed to become chilly. A temperature of 70 or 80 de- grees is about right. The cloths should he moistened every dav; often- er, if necessary. In four or five days the corn will be sprouted if it will germinate, and the exact per cent of germination can be determined. Blot- ting paper can be used in place of the cloth if desired, or even a basin full of wet sand, will answer every purpose. No matter how it is done, so long as it willbring the desired re- sults; but they strongly urge that every farmer take the utmost care in in the selection and testing of seed I corn,—Vermillion Republican. IS CALLED TO REST. As announced in our last issue Mrs. R. M. Bennett passed away at her home adjoining Kadoka on Friday morning at 10:45. She had been ill for some time and in fact had not been in the best of health for several years. Her fatal illness dates from some two months ago when she was i taken with a severe attack of appen- dicitis and went to the Chamberlain Sanitarium for an operation which : was successful hut a severe bowel j trouble set in and in her \v eakened | condition she was not able to over- come it. When she arrived home some five j weeks later It was expected that she would soon be well and strong but i such was not to be and she gradually : grew weaker until the end came, i Everything possible was done for her ! but to no uvuil and she goes to join her Master in the relms on high. 1s - Edith V. Nellor was born in Cum- ing county, Nebr. Feb. 28, 1879. At the age of eight she moved with her mother to Randolph, Nebr. where she made her homo until she came to Ka- doka in tho spring of 1907. She was married to Roscoe M. Bennett on August 29th, 1900, and to this union j | three daughters were born, Mildred, I j aged 9; Margaret, aged 6 and Mable aged 3; who with the husband and father are left to mourn the loss of a loving mother and wife. She also j leaves a mother Mrs. E. Nellor and | three brothers, E. T. Nellor, of the i Press in this city; D. E. Neller of Randolph, Nebr.; and a brother in Washington. She was a Christian from childhood anil an honored mem-1 her of the Methodist church of Rail-1 dolph, Nebr. Just why this loving ' mother was taken from the bosom of i her family or why a mother’s only j girl was called to her final summons j is hard to understand. She was a faithful wife and mother, 1 a kind and thoughtful neighbor, a j : loving (laughter and sister. Brief funeral services were held at j the homo on Saturday morning at 1 J 1 -30 conducted by Rev. I>. b. Brown j and assisted by Rev. H. M. Pinckney I and the remains were shipped to Ran- 1 dolph, Nebr., for interment beside’ j those of a brother and sister who 1 | passed on before. Waj ne Bennett of Lead, a brother of R. M. Bennett arrived to attend the funeral and later accompanied Mr. Bennett, Mrs. Nellor and E. T. Nellor to Raudolph to attend the fun- eral. The children remained at the .Mrs. Quinn home south of town. The home with its vacant chair and the throe motherless littlegirls i is a sad one. Why this mother is called now to moot her Maker is not known but we must leave it all with Him who all things well and “perhaps someday we’llunderstand.” Formalin Treatment For Seedwheat. The efficacy of the formalin, or for- maldehyde treatment of seedwheat to destroy smut germs has been so am- ply demonstrated that we douhl deem , it particularly unwise to sow spring wheat without first subjecting it to this treatment. The expense and trouble of treatment is but slight. For the treatment of seed wheat at the time of sowing, Prof. C. Willisof the South Dakota Station advises the following: Formalin Traetment. Apparatus—A barrel, several gunny sacks and a supply of fbrmalin. Mixture—One pint of formalin to j fifty . gallons of water, preferably warm water, although it is not neces- sary. Treatmont —Dip the wheat in the gunny sacks into the barrel contain- ing the mixture (formalin and water.) Be sure that all the wheat is sub- merged. Allow the wheat to remain | in the mixture (formalin and water) at least twenty minutes, after which it may be removed and sown at once. If the wheat is permitted to drain a short time upon removal from the water, the fifty gallons will treat at least twenty-five bushels. Cost. —Formalin can be obtained i from your druggist at about twenty- five cents per pint (pound.) Two’ men can treat enough seed in one day to sow forty acres. Formalin is equally efficacious for j smut in other grains and for curing potato scab, or any other fungus growth of grains and vegetables. The foliowing is recommended: Soak Beed potatoes at least two flours in solution of one-half pound of formalin to fifteen gallons of water, plant on land free from scab. I)o not fertilize with mauure from animals fed scabby potatoes. Formalin is a non-poisonous, non- corrosive liquid procurable at drug stores. Try it. L. r Goldsmith. Ca*h. Fort Pierre Bank R. A.
