cent proclamation , and the instruc
tions issued by the Secretary of the

commissioner or judge or a clerk
of a court of record , or a notary
public in one of Hie following
towns , viz : Chamberlain , Dallas ,
Gregory , or Presho in South Da
kota , or O'Neill or Valentine in
Nebraska , and there sign and swear

sworn to it must be inclosed , un

be furnished by the oflicer admin
istering the oath , and the envelope
must then be addressed and deliv
ered to "James W. Witten , Su
perintendent of Opening , " at eith
er Dallas or Gregory , South Da
kota , before 4:30 : p. m. on Octo
ber 17 , and not after that , either
b.y mail or in person , or otherwise ,
but not by registered mail , and the
envelope must not have the name
of the applicant written on it.
Soldiers and sailors who served
for ninety days during the War of
the rebellion , the Spanish-Ameri
can War , or Phillippine Insurrec
tion , will not be required to go to
ither of the aboved named towns
to swear to their applications , but
they may appoint agents to pre
sent their applications for them ,
and these appointments may be
made and sworn to in any State
or Territory. The appointment of
an agent by a soldier must be made
in writing on a blank form which
may be obtained by writing to
James W. Witten. General Land
Office , Washinton. D. C. , " prior
to September 25 , 1908 or at his
lead-quarters at Dallas , South
Dakota , after that date , or from
the officer in charge of the regis-
; ration blanks at either towns
named above , after October 4.
The appointment must be sworn
to by the soldier , and should not
i made on any form other than
the one prescribed for that pur
pose. The agent's name must be
written into the blank form of ap
pointment before soldier swear to
it , as appointments can not be
made out in blank and the agent's

tration , which will be attached to
the soldier's appointment , and he

one soldier , and no person is per
mitted to take part in the drawing
who presents more than one appli
cation in his own behalf , either in
person or through an agent. A
soldier who files by an agent can
not therefore , file in person. , Sold
iers who did not serve during the
wars mentioned above have no
greater rights .than persons who
have never served in the army at
any time.

las , S. D. on October 19 , to de
termine who of the persons regis
tered will be given the right to

cation , unless he subsequently

date , probably in the montn of
March , 1905) ) , when he will be per
mitted to enter one-quarter section ,
or less , of these lands , for which he
will be required to pay the usual
fees and commissions and § G an
acre. If the number drawn is be
tween 4,000 and 6,001 , the applicant
will be notified in the same manner
of some date in August , 1909 , when
he can make entry at $4.50 an
acre , if any of the lands remain
unentered at that time. The fees
and commissions and one-fifth of ,
the purchase money must be paid
when the entry is made , and the

smaller than 4.001 he must there
fore pay § 192 on the purchase

try , he can obtain patent by com-
plving with the requirements of j
the homestead law , as to residence j
