MADISON COUNTY FUNDS ARE IN
MUCH WORK HAS DEEN DONE
Dy Getting Excellent Values for Mon
ey Expended , Madison County Hns
Improved and nt the Same Time Has
Kept Gout to Taxpayers Down.
County Treasurer Chris. Bchavlaiid
him called In all wamuitH outstanding
ngalutit Miutlfloii comity. Thu ability
( o call In and pay all outstanding war-
rantn at this time of tlio year , seldom
If over before lias c'Oino to MadlHon

Tlio cleaning up of all warnuitH will
Htop tlio out How of Interest on thcKo
doblfl , thus making a Having for tlio
county IIH well an putting Its lltmnccH
In tip-top condition.
Ono of tlio chief ri'iiRotifl why MntH-
lion county finances aiu In such excel-
lunl Hliapo at tlilH time IH tlio fact that
tlio couiity'B linnluoHB affairs have been
given itiiummlly capalilo attention for
Homo I line past.
Ono singular feature of tlio Hltua-
( Ion Is found In the fact that tlio
county IH seldom , If ever , nhlo to call
In all nutHtiiiidlng warrants at this
tlmo of the year. There has boon at
tlio muuo tlmo a very great deal of
olllclent work and material linptove-
inunt out through the county. Such
n condition could only como about
thiough the fact that In Its present
hanils the county has received excel
lent values for all moneys expended.
During the past year a very grout
deal of const met I vo work was done In
Improving the roads , building bridges ,
etc. All of these things were accom
plished by getting good values for ex-
poudltnios and as a result the county
lias uono forward and at tlio same
tlmo warrants are called In.
The present Bit mil Ion demonstrates
the fact that a county , well managed ,
can gain excellent Improvements and
at the sumo tlmo keep down the cost
Much of the road work of late has
been done by the yard and as a result
the county Is said to linvo received
about twice as much work for Its mon
ey as under the old pay by day sys
Under the now piece work rule ap
plied In Madison county , the contract
ors are also faring bettor than under
the old system , as they nro accom
plishing enough moro work to pay
them better than In the day system.
Under the old plan , when a man
worked a portion of n day and was
stopped by rain , he was paid for a full
day. Under the present system ho Is
paid for just what ho does , and the
prospcious condition of Madison coun
ty argues that the new plan pays.

solves and their four human friends.
It was Friday morning when the

RAPID CITY-PIERRE LINE.
The Race Has Been Hurried Across
The completion of the Hapld City-
Pierre line which ended this week ,
has been hurried. It began last sea
son and much work was done last fall
and winter , although the severe win
ter in the north made It necessary to
stop work for two months.
A building race has been on be
tween the Milwaukee and the North
western. Both roads have been build
ing from their Hues on the Missouri
river to Rapid City. Sometime ago
.mother road , the Crouch system , con
structed a line between Rapid City
and Mystic on the Burlington and this
line Is operated with a close traffic
arrangement with the Burlington.
This arrangement gives Rapid City
two lines of the Northwestern , reach
ing many points in the hills , one be
ing a north and south line from the
Nebraska system touching Hot
Springs , Buffalo Gap , Dendwood , Lead
and Belle Fourche , and the other con
necting the hills with the eastern part
of the state ; access to the Burlington
with its big Black Hills system and
line from Nebraska , and the Milwau
kee with Its system in the eastern
part of the state.
It is with this now line of railroad
stretching across from Pierre to Rap
id City that It Is expected the Norfolk-
Dallas branch of the Northwestern
will some day be extended. Various
points have been reported as probable
junction points on the line.
