D. , July 21. The holdlnc of the primaries for the selection of stnto officers In Juno of the oven num bered years starts the campaign In South Dakota much earlier than It did In the old days of conventions for the selection of such officials. The begin- nlng of the next campaign Is already on. A late story Is to the effect that the democratic leaders are encourag ing the ambitions of George W. Egan and arc quietly passing the word along to their followers that they are to get Into the republican game and cast their votes for Egan , with the hope that he will secure a nomination , and give them a chance to nominate a strong man by a very small primary vote and eventually place him In the governor's chair. It Is said the democrat who has been selected to be the beneficiary of this movement is A. R Hitchcock of Mitchell , who is on the board of re gents of education. Insurgents , who are now being men tioned as candidates of that faction for governor , are Governor Vessey and Senator Peter Norbeck , of Redfleld. There is a question If the latter will allow the use of his name. Last Is George W. Egan of Sioux Falls. The places of governor , secretary of state , treasurer , and two congressmen are now filled by "first termers. " Al though the two congressmen have served other terras , they were ou\ \ , for two years , and are In the same list as the state officers who have been elect' ed and will ask for a second term. Just what figure this will cut in mak ing up tickets next year remains to be seen , but the state has generally re turned for a second term men who have given satisfactory service. Of this list the governor and secretary are credited to the insurgent wing of the party , and the others to the stal warts. Just what position the stalwarts will take Is yet a matter of conjecture. The tariff bill and the actions of the senators and congressmen from this state may have strong bearing. It is possible that when It comes to the selection of a governor , they may throw a bomb Into the Insurgent ranks. They may decide to allow matters tors to drift along In a general way and take their chances In a free for all without any special lining up. The county option question will be a factor in the campaign. Last year it was kept well In the back ground , but there are mutterlngs among the liquor Interests of an Intent and desire tc play even for fancied or real grlev- anccs whenever opportunity comes. The equal suffrage backers promise a warm campaign , but declare positive' ly that they do not Intend to allow the Issue to become tangled up with the fortunes of any political party , 01 those of any Individual. They will make their campaign just as strenu ously within nil the party organlza tlons and attempt to draw strength wherever It appears that strength is tc bo found. Victor Admits He Killed Four. Abeideen , S. D. , July 2L Emll Vic tor , charged with murder of the Chris tie family and Michael Ronayne or the morning of July 3 , has signed c written statement confessing to hav Ing committed the deeds , according tc a rumor circulated here which the state's attorney and sheriff refuse el ther to confirm or deny.

Y. , saying that the fathei will leave for Aberdeen as soon as UK mother recovers from the prostratloi resulting from hearing of the son'i predicament. The brother In Chicago , who wroti the sheriff that ho would have nothlni to do with Emll , has also answered tin call , claiming that ho Is just recover Ing from a siege of sickness and wll come to Aberdeen nnd give nil the as sistance possible.

Outers' Book : According to ttio last biennial report of the game warden , Nebraska game both furred and feath ered , has not been In as good uhapo for ten years. While It Is unlawful to kill antelope or deer In this state , there have been more of these animals seen In the western part of this state this winter than for a decade or more. Largo bunches of nntelope , some of them containing over 100 head , have been encountered In Sioux , Dawcs , Box Butte , Scott's Bluff and Klmball counties , nnd gangs of whltetall deer , from three or four to fifteen in n gang , have been seen both along the Nlo- brara and Dismal rivers , and a few weeks ago a rancher named Enos Long killed a 108-pound buck on Long's lake , Sioux county , and the warden has been looking for him ever since. Wolves , both the big gray and prairie , are thicker in this western tier of counties than they have been in a long time. The antelope nnd deer have" un doubtedly been driven down from the mountains by the tremendous snow falls they have been having evertilnco winter set in , but being unmolested , the hope of the ranchers is that many of them will realize that Nebraska is a sanctuary for them nnd linger hero for n long time to come. The wolves have naturally followed the deer down Into the lowlands. The prairie chicken crop of last season was a big one , and the open season being short n largo proportion of these birds were left over for seed , and the chances are for another grand crop this year. Geese and ducks were never more plentiful than this spring , particularly the latter. Shooters are busy everywhere and limit bags Is the rule oven among tryos. The quail have suffered extensively by the ex treme cold weather , and It Is moro than likely that the coming season will see n tremendous decrease In their ranks. The imported Hungarian par tridges have also suffered considerably in certain exposed localities , but in the main they have wintered well. All the streams are teeming with planted trout , and many of the lakes are well stocked with black bass. Jack rabbits and cottontails are a nuisance , and wooded creek valleys are alive with fox squirrels , coon and some foxes. 5,400 Acres Sold. Albion News : One of the biggest real estate deals ever made in Boone county waade last week when the Lockwood ranch , consisting of 5,400 acres , was sold to parties from Minden - den , Neb. This ranch has been on the market for sale for several years , but the large sum necessary to swing It made it a hard proposition for the land agent. The present owner , C. E. Lockwood , acquired the nucleus of the ranch from his father , who settled on it in an early day. Additions have been made to the original ranch from tlmo to time , until it was one of the largest in this or any surrounding county. The sale price was $10 per aero and , al though it is in the "sand hills , " it is only a matter of a few years when that land will be worth much moro. Including the stock and personal prop erty , the consideration of the transfer will reach well towards $100,000. The now proprietors will continue Its management as a unit , and It will continue to be the largest stock ranch In this section. A Lost Kee. The Right Hon. Augustine Birrell once believed that he had been smit ten with a mortal disease and went to consult a distinguished doctor who lived in the neighborhood of Ilnrloy street nnd who was n great expert on the disease of which he thought ho was n victim It wns n hot day in July , and ns ho walkoel from his London home , which was in the neighborhood of Addlson road , to Hurley street ha perspired freely. lie found the great physician's rooms all crowded with patients probably , ho thought , suffering from a similar complaint to himself. While waltlnpr he found on the table a book written by the great physician on the subject of the particular dis ease. Ho opened the book , and the V first words which caught his eye were these : "Tho patient who is Buffering from tills dlsenso never perspires. " ' lie had Scotch blood In his veins , BO he picked up his hat and gloves and walked out , and ho never saw that eminent physician. London Scraps.
