Ethel Thode, aged 2 years, whose
parents reside on a ranch on White
river, near Belvidere, had an interest-
ing adventure with a rattlesnake.
The little girl was playing in the
screened porch of her home. On
which was standing an old gasoline
oven, the door of which was butten-
ed shut. The child had hammered
and pounded the oven until a queer
noise on the inside attracted the at-
tention of Mrs. Thode, who was work-
ing in a room just off the porch. The
mother went to the oven and opened
it to see what made the unusual noise.
Her surprise was great when she dis-
covered a large rattlesnake inside the
oven. The rattler was in an infur-
iated condition, due to the child’s
pounding on the oven, and was repdy
for battle the instant the door was
opened. Mrs. Thode lumped back in
time to escape being struck by the
fangs of the reptile, which finally was
driven from its refuge and killed.—

The gentle grace of the mother
lives in the daughter long after her
head is pillowed in the dust of death;
and the fatherly kindness finds its
echo in the nobility and courtesy of
sons, who come to wear his mantle
and to fill hie places; while on the
other hand, from an unhappy, mis-
governed and disordered home, go
forth persons who shall make other
homes miserable and perpetuate the
sourness and sadness, the contentions,
strifes and railings, which have made
their own early lives so wretched and
HOME, SWEET HOME.
Stay, stay at home, my heart and rest;
Homeseekings hearts are happiest.
For those that wander they know not
Are fullof trouble and fullof care.
To stay at home is best.
Home—the name made dear by
sacred associations, the place where
childish feet take their first faltering
steps and infant minds received their
first ideas. There lessons of love and
truth, of right aud wrong, of faith
and hope and purity are imprinted
upon the plastic heavt, and all the sor-
rows and perplexities of after life are
inefficient to quite efface these first
deep true impressions. Sweet home,
where the mother’s gentle hands pre-
pared the littledomestic comforts that
a father’s love provides, and filial af-
fection is the silver link, the si'ken
tie that binds the household hand to-
gether. Trials may come and clouds
may lower, but in the seclusion of
home remains sweet healing for the
wounds that brave and sensitive hearts
hide from a disdainful world. There
these hurts and distresses may be con-
fidently revealed and a sovereign rem-
edy found in its unquestioning faith.
There a child’s pure kiss or the touch
of dimpled fingers may revive a soul
on the verge of despair and in the
home the brightest dreams become
more golden, the rarest pleasures more
intense, the tenderest joys more se-
rene. And if, in the varying degrees
of fortune, its loving shelter must be
abandoned, how the exile folds about
his heart, as the traveler does his
cloak the memory of its lights and
flowers, its loves and hopes and kind-
There the noblest influences exist,
the holiest impulses find expression,
and there have been born the chaste
and lofty sentiments that have made
a whole world better.

There is a Swiss proverb which says
that “it takes a good many shovel-

Many people who pray of a “deeper
work of grace,” do not want it to
come deep enough to reach the pocket.

If it is the purpose of the sponsors of the COUNTY OPTION
law to furnish the authority for voting a City, Town or Township
“dry’’ where the sentiment is opposed Co the high license policy
then the COUNTY OPTION plan is unnecessary, for the voters al-
ready have thatright under our present ideal LOCAL OPTION law.
If it is the purpose of those who are advocating COUNTY
OPTION, to pass a law that willprevent license in a community
where the voters are opposed to prohibition (and this is their
purpose), then COUNTY OPTION means
• Forced Prohibition
South Dakota has one of the best option laws as yet devisd.
To change from LOCAL OPTION to COUNTY OPTION would
mean a cessation of our present right to local self government.
COUNTY OPTION is a trick measure that cloaks the real in-
tent of those who advocate it.
COUNTY OPTION means PROHIBITION, BLIND PIOS,
BOOT-LEGGERS, Lose in Revenue, and High Taxes. It means
“graft” to the fixers instead of revenue to the people.

A crust of bread, a pitcher of water
a log cabiu and perfect love—there is
happiness for you, whether the day be
rainy or shiny. It is the heart that
makes the home, whethor the eye reste

The heart makes home precious, and
it is the only thing that can. Home
is where the heart is.
The bitterest tears shed over graves
are for words left unsaid and for deeds
left undone. “She never knew that I
loved her.” “He never knew what
he was to me.” “Ialwavs meant to
make more of our friendship,” “I
did not know what he was to me until
be was gone.” Such words are the
poisoned arrows which cruel death
shoots from the door of the sepulchre.
The lady who laughs heartily is a
doctor without a diploma. Her face
does more good in a sick room than a

see her. Their hands instinctively go
half way out to meet her grasp, while
they turn Involuntarily from the
dampy touch of the dyspeptic, who
