hear the performances. The under

the evening before, charging 10 cents
admission. Friday afternoon there was

years of our High school course. The
class acquitted themselves finely.
For years and years it has been con
sidered in the natural course of events
that there should be railroad connection
between this city and Yankton, due
north. Now this seems to be realized
in the not distant future: A special to
the Norfolk Daily News from Yankton
says: "A. T. Nation asd Chief Engineer
Miller of the Yankton and Norfolk
bridge asd road arrived here last night.
They assert they have the money ready
and wfll have trains running from
Yankton to Norfolk before New Year.
Wfll sot begin construction before the
15th. This would increase the already
wide reputation which our little city
deservedly has as a railroad center. Let
the good work go on, asd let every man
who earns money here, invest it here in
improvements or business that will
again add to the welfare of the city and

VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA.
The people are beginning to realize
that this is a truly American movement
organized for the evangelization of the
masses; incorporated under the laws of
this country and headquarters in New
York City. The movement was organ
ized only a little over a year ago. and
has had a more rapid growth than any
similar organization anywhere, starting
with one man and his wife, Commander
and Mrs. Balling ton Booth. It has now
nearly four hundred commissioned of
ficers, whose whole time is given to the
work, and over two hundred organized
posts, with between forty and fifty em
ployes at its headquarters in New York
City, owning its own printing presses
and publishing a large weekly paper
called the -Volunteer Gazette, with
a circulation of almost thirty thousand.
The leaders of the movement believe in
America for Americans, in spiritual as
well as temporal matters. The converts
made in their meetings are advised to
seek a home with some church, and also
to work with the Volunteers. The Vol-
unteers are auxiliary to the churches,
I and all members of churches can also be
members of the Volunteers without
severing their church relationship.
They have also adopted the ordinances
of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, be
lieving them to be in accord with th
command of their Lord so to do. Their
motto is -For God and Country." Their
hall is on Twelfth street, east of the
State Bank. Meeting every night at S
o'clock. Everybody made welcome.
In our talk with one of the Volunteers
we gather foregoing of their principles,
and their work here. There is undoubt
edly room and welcome for people who
are earnest, sincere, persistent and
knowing, as these people are.
There are phases of life that they have
passed through, and they, one and all.
speak of their experience with the dark
ness and pain and misery of sin, and
their escape from its toils.
It is this fervent, heartfelt evidently
honest sentiment that attracts attention.
There are those who are fighting
against foes who to them seem overpow
ering, and under adverse circumstances
that seem to them insurmountable, and
without hope they are trying to make
their way through the world. If they
could have hope to begin a better life: to
quit their wrong thinking and their
wrong doing, some all-absorbing passion
for good, it would be their temporal and
everlasting good fortune.

ural Epitomist. Everv hen on the
farm should clear at least $1.50 a year.
How is she to do it The secret is
hatch her early so she can commence to
lay early. If she lays early she will sit
early the next spring. She can thus
hatch several broods in the season, and
the chicks the surplus together with
the winter eggs, will easily bring the
profit up to SI.50 or more, after all the
cost of food has been deducted.
Not long ago we heard a farmer sav-
-Every spring I hatch a lot of chicks,
yet when I go to get up in the fall there
don't seem to be any. How true the
above is on many a farm. The chicks
are hatched, and after the hens wean
them they can shift for themselves un
til cold weather. A great many die from
neglect or disease, and the rats, cats,
etc, carry oS a lot more. All this time
the farmer never once thinks of hisi
chicks. Is it any wonder that the chicks
We remember a case of this kind last
summer. A neighber's young chicks got
the cholera, or something very much
like it. After consulting us he moved
all his small coops to fresh ground, and
used air slaked lime freely inside and
outside of coops, put a little tonic in the
drinking water, snd divided the broods
at night, so there would be no crowding
at night. In a week or two all symptoms
of disease passed away. Cleanliness, air
slaked lime and plenty of room in the
roosting quarters is what did the busi
ness. Real Estate Traasrer.

be necessary is to open the valves, and

faucets, and a miniature rain storm re

Anderson, of Swede Home, went to
Omaha on last Tuesday with a car load
of cattle. He disposed of the cattle,
sent the money home and put up at the
Windsor hotel on Wednesday night and
went to bed. There were two friends
with him but each occupied separate
rooms. He did not put in an appear
ance in the morning and his friends
became 3uxious. so the clerk broke into
his room and found him lying on the
noor dead. He had been asphyxiated
by gas. Just how the sad accident
could have happened will probably nev
er be known, but it is supposed that he
accidentally turned the gas on after
having turned it off. The remains were
brought to Osceola on Thursday night
and taken to the home of the deceased
in Swede Home. The funeral services
were held Sunday at the Swede Home
church, with burial in the Swede Home
cemetery. Mr. Anderson was one of
Polk county's foremost farmers and his
sudden death was u sad shock to his
' family and his many friends.
Albion Blade A noted stockman was
in town last week who has been a mightv
i important facto:
of this countrv.
in the hvestocindnstrv
of this country. His name is S. F. Searls
and his home is at Jessup, Iowa, where
i he has resided for forty-one years. Mr.
i Searls has been a stock buyer, raiser and
i shipper for about fifty years and has a
(wide acquaintance among cattle men
throughout the Missouri valley region.
I His operations take him everywhere in
that section. He has been doing busi-
ness in this countv for a number of
years, making trips here two or three
times annually to attend to his affiairs.
! In the early 50s. at the beginning of his
career as a drover and when a very young
man. Mr. Searls was taking cattle the
usual way from some point in Western
nimois to Chicago. It was in cold
weather. The ground was icy and the
cattle became footsore. They could not
travel further but mnst be gotten to the
market. Then it was that the idea of
shipping occurred to the young drover,
jind his was the firs, stock to go by rail.
A revolution in the industry followed
within a few years. Mr. Searls is now in
his seventieth year, hale and hearty still,
bidding fair to continue at the choeen
vocation of his life the while heads that
are now black turn gray and straight
forms stoop with age.
