little Green Louse Has Caused
.Acreage Which Last Year Yielded 12C
Tons of Cucumbers , This Year
Drought Forth Only Three Tons and
n Half , Near Norfolk.
A little Innect , called the green
ImiHo , HUB caused an almost total full-
mro of the encumber crop all over the
Mlate. AH a direct result of this little
Siug'H activity. I ho Norfolk I'lekle ami
AMnegar Co. , has had but few cucum-
"hern , and Ihoiio of an Inferior grade ,
with which lo carry on their business.
G. W. Evans said I hat they received
Knit thre < > and : i half Ions of eueuni-
lern ) this year cff practically the same
number of acro.i which yielded 120
noun of cucumbers last year. The
\\eiither conditions were good all the
.line and the prospects of n largr
fiop early In the season were very
rnvonible. Hut after the advent elI
I lie green louse , the encumbers ceased
Jo grow , and most of them died.
The green louse lives on the under
.side of the cucumber leaf , where It'i
ixlmost impossible to spray with any
success. The louse multiplies rapidly
.mil Is batched from an egg , laid by
A black gnat. The only known
method of getting rid of the louse if
fumigation by placing some tight bos
or vessel over the vine and burning
tobacco under the box. This method
UK too tedious and expensive , excopl
for a few hills In a small garden foi
family use.
Weather conditions being favorable
Abe season is from the middle ol
August until frost time.
Manager G. W. Evnns said that he
liad lived in this state for twenty-five
years , and had never before seen r
failure of the crop from this cause.

Supposed Grandchlldern of Lord Ches
terfield Find Each Other.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Sept. 17. Specla !
to The News : While in the city Dr
Spencer , a well known physician ol
Montrose , northwest of Sioux Falls ,
told of a remarkable and Interesting
reunion which has Just taken place at
Montrose , the principles In the re
union being Miss Rachael Chesterfield
a Young Women's Christian assocla *
tion worker of New York City , and
Edward Chesterfield , who since boy'
hood has been a resident of Nebraska
and South Dakota.
Tlie reunion was the culmination ol
a search which has been prosecuted by
Miss Chesterfield for many years for
her long-lost brother , whom she now
has found. Miss Chesterfield and her
brother are said to be grand children
of the famous Lord Chesterfield oi
England , who was noted for the
beauty of bis attire and who for years
set the fashion for his countrymen.
When Miss Chesterfield and her
brother were mere children and re
sided in New York city their parents ,
as well as themselves , were stricken
with typhoid fever. The parents died ,
but the children slowly recovered and
when they had entirely recovered and
left the hospital where they had been
cared for they had no home to go to
and were taken In charge by an or
phan's society.
Young Chesterfield , together with n
number of other orphans , about twen
ty years ago was sent to a home In
Nebraska , where he remained for
some years. A few years ago he
drifted to South Dakota , where he
was given a position by Dr. Spencer ,
whom he has faithfully served since
as ostler and as general utility man
about his office , barn and home.
He was known as Ed Chester , the
r'fleld" having been dropped from his
name , and this fact greatly handl-
capped Miss Chesterfield in tracing
and locating him. But as stated hot
many years' search has resulted sue'
cessfully and the brother and sister
are once more united.
Their plans for the future are not
definitely known , but It Is believed the
brother will accompany his sister tc
New York and in future reside with
her in Gotham.
Thurston Speaks ,
Chicago Tribune : The want of ex >
citement In the presidential campaign
Is doubtless causing some concern tc
the party managers. Apathy Is feared
especially by the Republicans , and
with reason founded on painful ex
porlence. Mr. Taft's hint that the sue
cess in Vermont might result in over
confidence indicates that the Repub'
lican leaders are awake to Its dangers
In this campaign.
As to the existence of apathy among
the voting rank and file , former Sena
tor Thurston of Nebraska has an In
teresting opinion , Nebraska , ho says ,
will certainly go for Mr. Taft , and any
apparent want of exigent and onthus'
Instlc partisanship now prevailing , he
declares , Is moro apparent than real ,
Not apathy but contentment Is the
cause of the quiet. The Nebraska
farmer Is far from Indifferent , he saya ,
but he Is prosperous and disposed tc
foul that the state of the nation under
Republican administration In , If not
perfect , at any rate reasonably satis
factory and better than It would bo
If the rule were changed.

OnFaubel's ' Complaint , Groc
ery Store Closes.
The grocery store of C. F. Wake-
man & Sons , of Hndar , has been
closed upon complaint of .1. F. Faubel
who claims that the former parties
secured possession of the store
through misrepresentation of a part of
the land traded for the store.
Wakeman & Sons gave their farm
of 200 acres for Faubel's stock of
goods in the grocery store some time
last summer. Now Fanbel claims , so
L. C. Wakeman said Wednesday at the
Junction , that forty acres of this land
is not as good as represented. Wake-
man said that Ills father had been In
possesion of the land but a short time
and was unable to show Faubel the exact -

A Dlrectolre Gown In Wayne.
Wayne Herald : Quite a little excite
ment was stirred up on the streets the
other day by the announcement that
a visiting girl was the owner and
wearer of a dlrectolre gown. The re
port was unfounded , however , as the
gown proved to be a very modest af
fair , one that the most exacting Wayne
woman could wear and still retain her
self-respect and her position In the
South Dakota Justice.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Sept. 17. Special
to The News : Judge LuCraft , who
presides over a court at White , Brook-
Ings county , has set a new pace In
dealing out justice to those who In
dulge In gambling. A man who had
lost a considerable sum of money In
an effort to punish the men who had
beaten him and secure a return of the
money , made complaint and had the
men arrested. When the case was
stated to Judge LaCraft he imposed a
fine upon the defendants and declined
to give aid to the plaintiff in securing
the return of the money he had lost.
On the other hand , the judge held that
the plaintiff was equally guilty and
also Imposed a fine In the case of the
plaintiff , who paid the fine and de
parted a sadder and wiser man. At this
season of the year the state Is Hooded
by expert gamblers and crooks , and
Individuals who are folish enough to
get into the games with them and lose
money , according to the reasoning of
Judge LaCraft , are not entitled to any
sympathy or redress.

Dallas , S. D. , Sept. 17. Special to
The News : The building that Is be

penters are still In great demand and
more than 100 of them could IIml em

When It is considered that the mall
capacity In both Dallas and Gregory ,
the towns to which all allldavlts must
be mailed , will bo greatly taxed , It Is
believed here that most people will
out by information bureaus , real
estate men and others advertising
thdr lines of trade , and this will con
tinue for many weeks after the draw
ing takes place.
All allldavlts sworn to before no
taries at affidavit points designated
it O'Ni 111 , Valentine , Presho and
Chamberlain , must be lecelved by
Judge Wltlen at either Dallas or
Gregory before 1:110 : o'clock p. m. Oc
tober 17 , and with the congested con
dition of the malls which will surely
exist , there must bo many hundreds
of allldavlts that will not be received
register here rather than at allldavlt
points , In which case there would be
danger of the allldavits being mis
carried in the malls , or lost entirely.
A congested condition of the malls
can hardly bo avoided. It Is true that
the government Is arranging addition
al clerking forces in the Dallas and
Gregory postolllces , but the additional
help that will be secured will he in
experienced , and they will be over

And American Railroad Employes Are
Paid Far More.
New York , Sept. 17. "Four billion
dollars would be added to the Ameri
can freight bill if the people of this
country had to pay the same rates as
the English shipper , " said B. F. Yoa-
kuni , chairman of the executive com
mittee of the Rock Island-'Frlsco lines ,
In an interview yesterday.
Mr. Yonkum had been asked regardIng -
Ing the differences in rates on Ameri
can and foreign railroads. After mak
ing the foregoing statement , he con
tinued :
' "Nearly every one of the thousands
of travelers who return from abroad
in the next sixty days will bear wit
ness that our railroads are the best
In the world. There Is no doubt about
this being true.
Three Important Factors.
"Three things are of importance to
the people and their welfare concernIng -
Ing railroads. They are :
"First The efficiency of the ser
"Second Cost of the service to the
"Third Wages paid to employes.
"In all these things the railroads
of the United States are ahead of the
railroads of any other country. That
the service furnished by American
railroads Is better than that furnished
by the railroads of any other country
Is an undisputed fact.
"We will now look at the cost of the
"The average charge for moving
one ton of freight one mile Is :
"In Great Britain , 3 % cents ; in
France l'/ > cents ; In Germany , 1 %
cents ; In the United States , % cent.
"To state this in another way :
"One dollar pays the charge for
moving one ton of freight in the dif
ferent countries the distance shown :
"In Great Britain ? 1 pays for mov
ing one ton forty-throe miles.
"In Franco ? 1 pays for moving one
ton sixty-six miles.
"In Germany $1 pays for moving
one ton seventy-five miles.
"In the United States $1 pays for
moving one ton 132 miles.
"Tho freight revenue of the United
States railways , according to Inter-
slate commerce statistics for the > ear
1007 , wore $1,820.000,000. If the
United States for that period had paid
the English rate for freight the cost
would have been $ -1,000,000,000 more
than the people of this country paid
at the present rate. At the English
freight rate the total freight bill in
the United States would have been
$ ; .713.00'onoO Instead of $ lS2G,000aOfi
as paid at the United States freight
"It is not difficult to show how this
four billion difference occurs. "
Here Mr. Yoakum turned to a wall
map of England , and Indicating Man
Chester and London , said :
"Tho charge to move a ton of grain
between these points , a distance of
227 miles , Is fl.21. "
Then turning to map of the United
States and pointing ( o St. Louis he
said :
"It costs only $ l.H ) to move a ton
of grain from St. Umls to Chicago , a
distance of 280 miles , ami from St.
Louts to New Orleans , 1,0(1(1 ( ( miles , a
ton of grain Is moved for $1 , or twenty- ,
one centH less than the English charge
from Manchester to l/mdon , less than
one-quarter the distance.
"If the l.7fi.OOO ( ! railway employes of
this countiy had been paid the English
wages the total compensation for the
> oar 1007 would have been JfiOS.OOn-
000 liibtead of $1,075.000.0(10 ( as It was.
"The average wage per annum paid
to railroad employes in the various
countries Is as follows :
"In France , $2ii ( > ; in Great Britain ,
$ : ! 02 ; In Germany , $ : iS ! ! ; lit the United
Stales , $012.
"Classified In the different depart
ments of railroading : Firemen In
Great Britain are paid $ . ' ! 00 ; llremen
In the United States are paid $70. :
