The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - May 23, 1924, Kadoka, South DakotaPress, Vol. 17, No. 2 KADOKA, S. D.. FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1924 THE KA OK PRESS Reporter Vol. 16, No. 61 MAJOR COURSEY ADDRESSED GRADUATES South Dakotas educator, soldier and poet, major O. W. Coursey of .Mitchell, so well and favoiably known in this section, once more appeared on the local platform last r riday evening before a trackedhouse to deliver the commePce- inent address. In his address to the graduates Major O. W. Coursey, id Mitchell, took ior his subject "The Harp otCite.” He divided the address in- to three sect-ions- life in general, life in particular, and the combat- ting sgnritual influences that strug- gle to control it. In the way of* introduction he said: “Jest as we were going into battle on the Marilao river twelve miles straight north of Manila in the Philippine islands on the hot sultry morning- of March 27. 1899 a Flilipino family, consisting of the father, mother, and little girl about ten years of age, whose small bam- boo hut lay directly between the two opposing armies which were less than a mile apart, sought to make their way out of the zone of lire around our right flank. ‘‘Hastily packing their scantj household contraptions onto a two wheeled cart drawn by a Chinese pony, they climbed in and took their places on the front seat which consisted of a hinged-board turned backward, —the father on the left- hand side, as is the custom of the Filipinos, the mother on the right- hand side, and the little girl be- tween them, "As they passed by in front ot where we were, with the horse run- ning fit 'break-neck speed,—the father beating it with a piece of bamboo at every jump that it took, the little girl’s harp, about JO in- ches high, made of hand-hewn ma- hogany. inlaid with sea-shells fiom Manila bay, and containing 28 strings, jostled off of the hack end of the cart when the y hit a rice- dyke and fell to the gi omul. "As we came up to it in our mad rush forward in a deadly charge upon the Filipinos’ lines, 1 stooped hurriedly to grab it up. As I did so, the man directly behind me was shot, —he receiving the bullet that was intended for me. ‘ Inasmuch as the little girl’s harp had saved mv life, I called it ‘Mv Fife’s. Harp;’ and from it I cnvolved tlie subject upon which I shall speak to you tonight "The Harp I of Fife.” This catchy introd.ution immed- iately arrested the attention of ‘ ne | large audience, and Mai< r Comseyj found it easy t> hold llieir attent- ’ ion for the c-o.ung. During D-.* first part <1 bis ad-: dress the s;> alter dibnid file, showed the value of each day dis- cussed the c imp > i a* .ye v.iiue ol dollars ,»iul iif*; set forth var.»:is! rules for mey ring die anil closed | it with a comparison of the I ves ol - Methuselah and Roosevelt. As an introduction to the second part of the address life in paiticn- lar tlui speaker said: “Every child born into this world alive is pri- marily a tiny stork’s egg so small that if you were to place it under a powerful microscope and enlarge it to 179 times its own diameter, it would still only be equal in size to an ordinary copper penny. This tiny insignificant egg aln ost in- visible to the keenest I nman eye is cultured by the ess ue<* of the father's blood. Dame Natuie cau- ses it to grow for thrt quarters of 1 a year. Then the i'niry-vinged Angel of Birth descends into the birth chamber where the curtains , arc drawn and the lights are binn- ing low; ushers it forward through ' tho gate-way of life into the arena j of action; breathes into one tiny I nostril the breath of life, into the; other asovereign will* and the child becomes a full-fledged soul ready and willing to begin to play its tune upon the harp of its life. ’ : He. set forth the seven stages ot human existence; discussed the 1 whole range of life with its multi- plied experiences from the cradle 1 to the grave; and then took up the last phase of his theme. He declared: "Every man is both real and ideal. What he is today is; his real. That which ho hopes sometime to become is his ideal. The carriage in which he rises from his real to the attainment ot his ideal is his soul-oplane lhe motor that propels it upward in its onward course is the human will. The current that generates the motor is spirituality. And just so long as that current is turned on, man’s soul-oplane continues to rise; but the moment that he himsolt, by some sinful act of his own, dis- connects the current, that moment his soul-oulane floppies over to perdition. True—he may have ac- quired such a momentum, and may have risen to such a commanding height of goodness, that ho may bo able, as we say. to volplane lor a little while and save himself; hut, in the end, unless that current is reattached through repentance, faith,- prayer, and obedience to di- vine law. just that sure his soul* oplane will keep on plunging down! —down —dowM! —until it smashes itself into fragments on the incin- erated crags of hell.” Mr. Coursey enriched the address throughout with quotations from the world’s classics, used sever a J poems of his own composition, and closed with a stirring appeal to the graduates to select the right road to travel through life. The appreciative audience diank in every bit of the spirit and nund refreshing intellectual treat. The GREATER PROFITS BY CONTROLLING INSECTS > Twenty percent of the fruit raisei . in South Dakota, a like amount o! , the state’s garden and truck cropsj 15 percent of the legumes raiseij for both hay and seed, 5 percent of . the wild hays and forage crops am . 5 percent of the cereal crops an , distroyed by insect pests, on tin average each year. When this bil , is charged up against tin* 74,0(K , farmers in the state it is easily seen that it will total up into ; 1 staggering sum. Insect contro should In* made a regular farn practice, regardless of the crop in- ; volved, and the sooner this praet ; ice is put into effect, the smallei • will lx* the annual agricultural ! leak caused bv these pests. Take, for instance, the case of , home grown fruits. The farm and i home orchard can be made tc materially reduce the annual food¦ budget as well a* supply food ratedin this state, in tin* luxury class.|lt is no longer possible* to grow worm loss fruit without spraying,j But tho spraying expense is, slight, ! running not more than five tcieight cents per year for the average I mature apple tree. As one example of the profit .to Ik* derived fromj spraying there is the ease of Al. <), Miehelson. a Lincoln county farmer, who picked 350 bushels of sound i apples from 25 trees that werei sprayed for tin* first time last year,j More than 200 bushels of the apples were marketed locally at a good¦ Price. Previous to last year hisj fruit had been so wormy that he | did not bother with it but turnedthe hogs in the orchard. ' Everyone has, or should have, a good garden during these times of low income, vet few can get goodyields of first class vegetables without controlling the hugs. Where efficient garden spraying is practiced little insect trouble is generally the rule. The cost is negligible when compared with the value of tic* crop. Two dollars 'worth of spray material and a four of five dollar sprayer is sufficientj for flic o.vo! go farm garden for 'the tear, and then the sprayer is i left for the next year, i The commercial potato grower¦is one South Dakota farmer who believes in insect control. No good potato grower would think ofjattempting 10 grow a crop without -qinrving. He makes potato spray- ing a part of his regular f irm i praet ice. Insect control under field cou- ! ditions is not prohibitive fromj either a financial or labor stand- point. .To illustrate: In 1922 a ! questionnario was sent to represen-jtative farmers in various parts of ' the state who find used poisoned bran mash h r grasshopper c :nt tol. I (This pest almost devastated whole 1 communif ie;, jlhat season). Foitv-I five of these farmers filled out. these questiennnrios aid retained them. These 15 men spent a total of $5(30 ini poison and estimated a total saving of 818,355. This averages sl’( per man for poison v. itli an nvoi.'.ge saving of over 8100 per nia a It is admitted lfi.it this is unusual and probably above the average but nevertheless, it shows that i can be done and at a cost that is absolutely within everyone’s i ach. HIGH St lit? >L GRADUATED THREE THIS YEAR The local theatre was well filled with admiring friends and relat- ives of flu* three graduates Mvrtle Hutton, Harry Fingclen and Cyrus Porch. The hall was very pleasingly de- corated in the claso colors and flu* whole made a very pleasing im- pression. Tin* program was nicely carried out by -ill concerned and the aud- ience felt well r« paid for attending tho exercises for there was some- thing for everyone to enjoy.

O* FOOD AND POPPY SALE‘SATURDAY The Ladies Auxiliary of the local post of the American Legion will hold a Food and Poppy sale on Saturday of this week in Kadoka. The ladies were not sure of the idaee when our reporter saw them but they said it would Ik* held just the same as it is held m many other places. It is a g >od cause and the Press would Cordially urge its readers to remember the event and the date. COWBOYS LEAVE FOR RODEO IN ENGLAND Kenneth Cooper and Norval Coop- er of Pierre, Flai l Thode, Belviderc, Dugan Smith, Miller, and Sam Grover, Big Bend loft this morning for New York where thej will board ship for England.

This is a big event in J world, and will be watch ed iwith great interest, as this is the* first national event of its kind.Pi erre Dakotan. HIRAM JOHNSON RELEASES SOUTH DAKOTA DELEGATES No surprise was felt when early this week Senator Johnson sent word to his South Dakota political managers to release thi* thirteendelegates who were to vote for him under Pete Norbeck’s banner. This will mean that they can now fall in with tho man who put Cal in California and heat Hiram right in hi r own home town. Or they can chase the rain bows andfall in with the radicals if they so choose, Coolidge does not need them, so they can do just as they please without effecting the final outcome. They might just as well stay at home and help with the chores since they won’t l>o needed in the national convention. EASTERN STAR CHAPTER HELD ENJOYABLE MEETING A very pleasant evening was en- ! Joyed by the local chapter of the , Eastern Star Fiver green Chapter i No. 97 last Tuesday night, their regular monthly meeting. A large number of members and visitors hail seen fit to take part in the regular work as well as a specialprogram. The “Floral Tribute” was con-ferred upon Minnie G. Zimmer, a new member. Tempting refresh- ments were afterwards served bvI the Mesdames Easthousc, F\ . (J. : Cove and A. S. White. The chapt'-r also decided to hold ' a birthday party in June, at which ' time a speci il program will lx*i given. FOREST FIRES ENVELOPE COUNTRYSIDE IN SMOKE On Friday.. Saturday and Sunday with prevailing northerly winds ihe entire country .side was shroud- in in a screen of smoke, so much that at times the sun appeared in ! different huf burning wood was plainly per- cept ible. Reports from Montana indicated the source of tin* annoying smoko. F’oro-t fires were raging in the Missoula district .and apparently out of control. One of them ex- iending over a front of nine miles. With shifting winds early this week Hu* flic was less in evidence. WEDDING BELLS HOLMES BEIT EL Miss Pearl HolmcM. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. YV'. Holmes was quietly married Tuesday morning at 10:30 at the Presbyterian par- sonage to Mr. F'raneis Beitel oldest| son of Mr. and Mrs. IF C . Beitel of i YY’eta, by Rev. A. V. Brvan. ; The bride is well known inKadoka and has taught school near here for the las.t four years and has just finished her third success- ive term of ih<* Hughes school, wlv*re she has given thi* very best of satisfaction as a conscientious and tactful teacher. The groom has spent most of his life at W’eta where he has attended school and where his parents con-duct a grocery store. The Press would join their num- erous friends in wishing them the* very l>i*st that life can hold of pleasure and success. EIGHTH GRADE EXAMS t FOR THURSDAY AM) FRIDAY ; The yourwl of the school 1m II Monday caused some of our .citizens to wonder if Niels had foryotten that school had officially i closed last week. However Mr. .Nielsen knew what he was doinyfor the eiyhth yrade is still in ses- sion preparimr for the state exam-, inations tJrt last two days of this week and it was thouyht wisest to keep the younysters fresh on their subjects until the examination comes. Kadoka curtailed its va- cations to yive the farmer boys and yirls a chance to help at home as soon as possible. That is why this town is a week ahead of the state schedule. MEMORIES OF WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA LIFE M iss Hazle Hopkins submitted . the foltowing- poem by the pen of i a former Jackson County teacher ;| to Major Coursey for him to pass I j upon it. He called our attentionto it ami pronounced it a fine literary gem. We reprint it here* for tin* benefit of our renders a number of whom will remember Clara K. Searless Hickman, the ' author. Mr. Coursey says "it is typically western." Oh the Wonderful West of my World of Dreams A veritable Heaven on Faith ift , seems,jWith its bracing 1 air and wonder*I ful hills.

M , May 15th, at i his ranch home six miles west of YYanblee. Mr. Williams had been i!i for months, and it was known that the end was inevitable, and all thai ioving hearts and hands could do to alleviate his suffering was done. Mr. Williams was born in I Missouri in 18(30 and came with his parents to Rapid City where he grew to manhood. He was married to Miss Maggie Trimmer in Rapid ‘City in 1888, and after a few years they moved to Missouri. Mr, YYil- , liarns had always retained his love , for South Dakota, and decided to ! move back. He ca me to YVasha- baugh Counth' little more than a year ago, and established his home ; here, where by his kindliness and I neighborieness ho quickly madefriends of his neighbors, and won I the respect of all who knew him. Mr. Williams is su rvivod by hisj wife and three children. Mrs. t Blanche* Ellenwoml of Seattle, , W ash., B. B. Williams of this place,I and Mrs. E mil Hover of Los Ange- los, all of whom were with him when the final summons came. Funeral services were conducted from the home FT iday afternoon at 2:20, the Rev. A. V. Bryan of Kadoka officiating at the home, and the Interior Chapter of Odd Fellows acting as pall bearers and conducted tie* burial service of their order at the grave, interment being made in the Wanblee ceme- tery. The beautiful flowers and the large number attending the funeral evinced the esteem in which Mr. Williams was hold and ; expressed the sympathy of all for • the bereaved family. WKTA SCHOOLS WIN IN HILLS MEET The little town of Weta showed once more its fine school metal the past week, when after having won the Jackson county track meet at Interior a few weeks ago. this little .school with its seven enrolled boys, boldly stepped into the Black Hills high school athletic arena and made the big fellow- sit up and take notice. Weta’s relay team won first place and. the cup that goes with it. In the prelicninaiies Clarence Uhlir won first place in tin* 220 yarddash and third in the finals. Clif- ford Schillinger outdid any former record made in tin* Hills in tin poll vault by three inches. He plac.d third in the ev nt the record l.eing broken by eight inches. The Rapid City Journal of Satur- day May seventeenth thus eulog- izes the plucky little aggregation from Weta: “V,» a high school with an en- roMment of only seven hoys, won Ihe admiration of the crowd when four of the seven comprized the rc- !av team tint romped away with Hist hcnois in that event. Hot Sprines was second and R.-m:d ("tv third.” WASHABAUGH COUNTY COM- MENCEMENT SET FOR JUNE 27. Major (). W. .Coursey, while here last week giving the commence- ment address before the local high chool, made definite arrangements \ith Supt. J. M. Woods to hold the Washabnugh coimtv _ grade schools graduating exercises at Wanblee on Friday June 27th. At that time the country will have nut on its best dress and at- tire*] in ita Sunday best, Mr. Cour- se v is hoping to bring along Sup- erintendent. Christotfer of tic Mil- waukee, who is anxious to see the reservation and its pioneeis. Our many friends in Washabaueh wiM do well to keen this in mind end to make this day a memorable event in the history of their county. CHURCH NOTES MAY, 25TH. Sunday school 10 a. m. Junior congregation Arline Dav- is assistant r . 11:15 a. m.Senior congregation 11:15 to 12 m Preaching N p. m. A. M. Topic, “The (Jod directed life/' P. M. Topic. “Riches of the Christ- ian Life.” Church worship, if rightly un- derstood, is the broadcasting stat- ion with messages from th# throne of God. It is possible with a radio outfit to get messages from all over the country showing that we are really not isolated tho* we live in a small place. The seemingly shut in, narrowed and contracted six day life may be broadened and deepened when listening in to the radio broadcasted by God Almighty majors natural tellotfuence, his ex- perience and tact as a 'platform speaker together with his unusual command of descriptive diction, which he masterfully brings with- in the grasn of the audience as occasion demands, make him stand out as a platform artist _ without a peer in this stat e. He is an ex- perienced student of human nature and wisely humanized even the nioiit classical in his speeches so that it comes within the life experience of his hearer. That is why folks flock to hear Mr. Coursey and delight to hear him again. I SCHOOL DISTRICT HONORS DEARLY BELOVED TEACHER This week finished one of thi most successful terms of school thi South Creek district has ever had ; Parents and pupils led by a tactful ! and capable teacher have enjoyed the school year to nnftmjl profit So when the end drew near tin good appreciative folks- of the South Cn ok region paid a highly appreciated and fitting tribute tn their community leader for the .pear. Miss Ruth Solon. Asked to come to the accustomed place of her labors of the past year, Miss Solon was agreeably surprised whyn patrons and pupils appeared joy beaming to express to her their aftyreciation of her faithful efforts in behalf of tho community and especially the cit- izens of tomorrow. After spending a very pleasant social hour, delighful refreshments carefully prepared by the best cul- inary artists, » f < South Creek, fit- tingly topped off this means of ex- pressing a communities appreciat- ion of a good teacher. South Creek concretely showed that it believes in giving the flowers to the living if they deserve thorn, an example >hat might be fittingly emulated by any community to the profit of both patrons and teacher. SOUTH DAKOTA FARMERS TO REPEAT DAIRY TRIP Brookings, S. D., May 22. Many of the South Dakota farmers who took in the dairy tour to New Salem and Flasher, North Dakota, last year an* repeating the trip thi.*- year. "! want to go to see some of he thing* 1 missed last year,” says one. “I’llhave a better idea what to look for this year,” says another.” “1 want to study their ieeding mol hods a little more closely," sa - s still another. Any fanner who i in the dairy business or any person interested in dairy- ing could make this trip yff»r after year and sec some new feature each time, last year there were 330 Souttli Dakotans oiuthe tour. A larr-'e percent of them will go again. Tin* dales this year arc June 17, is and 19. The State Col- lege ex ten.s’on dairy specialist will supply' fqU information to those interested. THREE ORIENT TRAVELERS RECALL EXPERIENCES Three merr sat down at the sup- per table together in a local hotel and soon started a conversation. In the course of this Mr. C. A. Hunt, Kadokn’s now hardware man. alluded to some of his experiences while passing through Japan dur- ing the Spanish American war. Major Coursey, another one of the trio supplemented Mr. Hunts ac- count of the same trip, he too having massed through Japan with Son th Dakota volunteer forces ¦ hiring that . nmoaign in the Phili- i fines. When Mr. Coursey had finished, Rev. Biyaii .-poke up and drew a still clearer picture of the nanor.'vna mentioned as well as la.j >ans life aol customs. H<* spoke in one of intimate knowledge in- d'*ed for he had spent thirtv-two <d‘ his b(*s vears a: a missionary in i he land of the rising sun.. Thus the three men meeting so unevneotedly on the western prair- ies of South Dakota had an cniov- ahlc topic for discussion of which neither one of them had over, dreamed perhaps five minutes be- fore. WET A I»OSTOFFICE OUESTTOX HAS BEEN SOLVE!)
