SouMi Dakota Is ically an empire In It-
ec'f. It extends north nnd eouth 225 miles ,
end cast and west ICO miles.
Comparing It with all I lie -New England
elates It Is one-fourth larger. With Illinois
It Is ono and one-half larger and moro than
that abend of Pennsylvania or Now York.
It ! not located ao far nway as Is often In
timated ; COO mlleB .ilmost due wc.it of Chicago
cage , and you are In South Dakota. This
hrlngs the state ivlthln easy reach of the
great markets of the country nnd makes
her productB valuable nud ilcalr.ible.
The climate of South Dakota Is not that
of the fi Igld zones , but nbout the name ns
New York , 'Michigan. Wisconsin and Min
nesota , Instead therefore of It being unde
sirable , It Is n delightful state In which to
Hive nnd. Ha climate even exceeds that of
many other sUtcn of the B.iniu latitude ,
South Dakota resources arp varied and
rxtenslvc. Kor sake of convenience they maybe
bo divided Into : The eoll nnd climate , mln-
craln , lirlgatlon advantages , railway facili
ties , cheap lands , educational advantages ,
character of her people.
llut a few words can bo said on each of
thcso topics In the tlmo at our disposal.
The soil and climate need but Mttlo addl-
itlonal explanation. Nowhere In the state Is
there any lack of soil adapted to the vari
ous agricultural activities of the people.
CHARACTER OF THE SOIL.
For several years the state has been rec
ognized as valuable soli" for coronls , grazing
purposes and especially creamery Interests.
It has Just recently been discovered that
thn augar lit et can br grown to moat excel
lent advantage. Tests made from moro
than 300 samples grown In various purts
of the state show wonderful results and
adaptability of soil to this purpose. The
sugar test has gone ns high as 21 per cent
in Komo rtamp'es and all tested stood above
the 12 per crnl necessary for commercial
purposes. The following figures Indicate the
adaptability of the soil for agricultural
purposes and toll their own story. In 1SOO
the state producedHI,1315,950 bushels of
corn valued at J5.Cfll.Gnl ; 27,583,450 bushels
of wheat valued at $17,101.7:19 : ; 17,957.Uri
uusbols of oatu valued at $2niIG8 : ; 3,308.730
Imshels of barley valued at $ G2S.GGO ; G.018.3S1
bushels of potatoes valued at ? 1.209.fi"7 ;
2.GS3.320 tons of hay valued at $8,371,958.
South Dakota has 145 creameries now In
operation and several cheese factories. The
value of her monthly exported bultor la
about $285,000. South Dakota butter leads
In the markets of the world. There Is none
SOUTH DAKOTA IRRIGATION.
The Irrigation advantages of the state are
Impoitant. There Is a broad belt ot country
extending through the state from north to
south called the Jim river valley where
abundance of water may bo 1iad anywhere
for the digging. It Is known as the artesian
hastti and is ot great value to the state.
It H not always realized but It Is none
the less true that Irrigation Is of great coni-
ancrclal value where It Is possible and prac
ticable. There are statistics to support this
The total value of irrigated farms In the
United States is $296,850,000. That Is 283.08
Tier cent upon cost , Including land , water
right , fences and preparation for cultiva
tion.Tho total v.iluo of the productive Irriga
tion system la $91,112,000 , 218.81 per cent
upon their cost.
The average value of Irrigated land In
farms Is $82.28 per aero and that of non-
Irrigated lands Is $20.95.
The annual value per acre of Irrigated
/inns Is $14.89 and for nonlrrlgatod It is
The railway facilities of the state are
ample. The Chicago & Northwestern , the
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. I'aul each have
f , strong system In the stale. The Great
Northern nnd Burlington also enter It.
Cheap lands la ono of the strongest In-
ducemonlB the state offers. Good lamj may
ibo bought for $3 per acre. Land ranges
from that up to $25 per acre.
It Is possible for dairymen , as an exam
ple , to secure the very choicest grazing
lamia at a merely nominal price and pro
duce butter superior to anything c'se In the
country at a price away below what Is pos-
Blblo In a state like Hllimla , where land has
become high and scarce.
The educational facilities are of the very
best. The public school system Is well do-
volopcd and liberally supported. In every
township two sections are set asldo as
echool sections and bccomo a source ot reve
nue at onca. No other state In the union
3ms such an endowment for educational
purposes. In addition this the Agricul
tural college , State university. School of
! Mlnca nnd three normal schools arc In ri
flourishing condition and all liberally endowed
dewed by land grants from the state and
The character of her people Is a matter
of great Importance and Js worth einpha-
elzlng always. The people of South Dakota
are intelligent , Industrious nnd conservative.
There Is no disposition among them to
< boom their state , as Is too often done In
some sections of the west.
I do not moan that no effort Is put forth
to get settlers Into the state. Far from It.
There ore several flrms successfully at
work In this direction , but they do not em
ploy the usual tactics ot western land
.ngonta. They are reliable , truthful and hon
est men , I know ono firm In my own local
ity composed of the best men In the county
ml they have brought Into our state some
of the best famllleB In this or any other
state. Thcso advantages of soli , climate ,
water , minerals , etc. , are Inducements not
Tnoro lmi > ortnnt than those mentioned of
education and characteristics of the people.
Altogether they form some of the bent op
portunities to lie found anywhere In the
union. Hut I rnnnot close these remarks
without a comment of a general nature on
the subject of Immigration.
A SOCIOLOGIO PROIJLEM.
, It has been assorted that cities are over
crowded , and no ono disputes this , but this
question of Immigration is a soclologlc one
and la not easy to solve.
To shift the overflow of cities to country
seems but a natural solution of the prob
lem , , yet how can this ho done and what
"better " oil would a helpless , penniless uttn
, ho on the pralrlca of the west ? Verily ho
would bo moro miserable than In the
crowded inartw of a great city. What Is
needed Is to got capitalists \vho are phil
anthropists to develop some Industries In
this country which will give employment
to iaree numbers of men and thus Induce
the crowds from the cities. That would be
practical and might succeed well. When
such men can bo found South Dakota

"I have Just completed a careful tour
through Texas , New Mexico , Arizona ami
all the cattle breeding districts ot the south
and west for the purpose of Investigating
the report that thcro Is a great shortage In
the crop of feeders and stock cattle , " said
William C. C. Dlxon. a representative of the
Anglo-Amorlcan Packing company of Chicago
cage In Denver to a reporter of the Times.
Ho continued ; "A shortage in stock ani
mals means a shcrtago In packers' supplies
which means a great deal to us and for this
reason wo are endeavoring to determine the
exact condition of affairs , and I am forced
to admit from my observations that If the
prices of cattle co'ntlnuc to advance there
will soon be little or no bovine stock left In
the country. Prices have been so low for
ten years that a rise of a few cents moro wll
tempt the holders of cattle to sell out to
feeders or packers and many of these will
quit the business and1 go to agriculture or
horticulture , which Is made possible hy largo
Irrigation companies covering areas of land
which tea years ago was fit only for propa
gating jack rabbits and coyotes.
"In the latter Industry the man need have
no fear of blnckleg. Texas fever , t'.ie quar
antine officers or any of the dozen other
annoyances which make the life ot a stcck
grower n burden.
"Those taking advantage oC the good mar
ket nnd desiring to re-enter the business
will not do BO until they can come In at lower
prlcce , and this cantiot bo done until the
ranges are restocked , which , at the lowest
calculations , will take five years , nnd for
this period look for a scarcity of cattle an I

"In the states of Nebraska , Iowa and Kan
sas , the greatest feeders of stock cattle In
the United State.3 , the nffalrn of the cuttlo-
men have reached a condition which thay
regard with much apprehension. The situa
tion is due to the < fact that the ranges of
the west iinvo almost been drained of their
supply of stock. This shortage applies to all
kinds of cattle , even extending to calves
"Nothing similar has over been experi
enced In these elates. For this reason the
Btockmen and proprietors of large ranches
are unable to determine from experience the
course they should pursue. All admit that
something must vbo done or there will bo
nothing next year in the shape of cattle. The
scarcity of range cattle Is duo to the high
prices that have prevailed for several
months past atthe stock yards In Chicago ,
Kanssa City , Omaha , Sioux City and fur
ther east , for all c'assca of wcatcrn stock.
Th'H has by no means been confined to beef
cattle , as In times past. It has extended
more particularly to stbckers nnd feeders. "

well-to-do Illinois farmer , reached Montana
about the 993th man to look for the Lost
Cabin mine. When .he . began preparing for
his Journey he told a Miner representative
that ho was possessed of both a route and
location map and a plat of the famous old

Blllard was officiating as guard > it the Illi

he obtained Ii the spring of 1896 and realgn-
Ing his office ho immediately started in
search cf the "mine. "
After experiencing some difficulties and
Innumerable dangers , ho finally found the
Lost Cabin In the latter part of October of
the same year , Just as the snow flics buz
zed and ho had to oeelc a warmer clinic.
Ho took some oro'away with him , however ,
and Is possessed of a certificate from a St.

worth $100,000 in gold. Last April ho again
determined to seek the mine and outfitting

Ho now statca that he lost his hearing's

ho will renew the search with the advent

JUST LIKE OTHER MEN.
Bailiff Knololl In discussing Jurors said :
"They are much like other men end have
atoout the sanio ideas concerning matters.
They all object to bo Imprisoned and the
lurors in the Bolln case WCTO no exception
: o the rule. They were with me for msre
: han thirty days and on the whole I have
no hesitancy In saying that they wore ns
fine a lot of fellows as I oyer met. Of
courwj they were occasionally obstinate , but
what of that ? They were- free citizen * and
putting them ( behind locked doers was do-
irlvlng thorn of thclr-llberty.
"The greatest objection to handling a. Jury
that la out for a long time Is due to the fact
that no two men want the same thing at the
same time. If one Juror wants to smoke , as
a rule there are eleven who are opposed to
ho Idea. If unother Juror wants to read ,
there are eleven who want to male a. nolae
and attract his attention to everything ex
cept his book or Tils paper. So It goes , both
night and day , pnd it seems that each day
he Jurors become more obstinate.

try a series of Inquiries Intended to discover
their views pen a variety of subjects Iti
which the bcef-oroJuccr presumably would
have much Interest , As thcso slaughterers
and packers are the men who Invade the
markets tof all lands seeking caili-returnlng
outlets for the meat products of American
pastures and cornfields and whoso views
must In many respects bo from standpotnta
quite different from those of the producer
their observation cannot fall to bo worthy
of careful perusal.
Answers to some of the Inquiries scut them
are as follows :
Armour Tacking Company "B by beet"
hag been > cry popular. On account of age ,
the quality Is probably not so good as that
of older stock. The consensus of opinion
among retailers Is tbat It can be cut to bet
ter advantage and there Is less waste. It
has probably not been In euoply equal to
the demand , and that has affected Its price.
Ilaugemcn In 'the last few years have been
putting a great many thoroughbred Here
ford and Shorthorn bulls In their herds ,
making It possible to produce good "baby
beet" In a sbart time , and the demand tor
It Is growing continually.
Swift nnd Compauy We would hardly call
cattle from 12 to 24 months old strictly
"baby beef ; " would consider "baby boot" to
bo that from animals 10 to IS months old.
Wo think that In a good many cases this
class of meat would bring 03 much as beet
from animate C to IS months older.
Cudahy Packing Company IJccf from cattle -
tlo 12 to 24 months old , If well fattened , Is In
great demand and moro highly esteemed
than that from anlmaCa C to 18 months older.
Ono reason for It Is that there Is not a great
deal of It on the market , whereas there are
numerous butchers doing a smalt business
who Oo not want to handle a heavy carcass ,
especially during the hot weather , but wheat
at the same tlmo have a trade that demands
gocd beef. It Is very seldom that the market
Is overstocked with good , fat yearling steers
or heifers , yet through a very large portion
of the year they command as high a price
as the 1,200 to 1,300-lb. steers of similar
Swatzschild & Sulzborgcr Company Beef
from well-fattened cattle 12 to 24 months
old is as highly esteemed as that from cattle
G to 10 months older , lot' some markets
Armour and Company Steers would prob
ably bring In the neighborhood of CO cents
per ion more than Bpayed heifers. The lat
ter are .probtbjy 'worth'25 cents more per
100 than those not's ayi Xleyla\o ; a tendency - ,
dency to bo mure tboroughfy" nnlstieiH.vid
there Is a surety that she Is not In calf. '
Swift and 'Company ' We think that 25
cents per 100 would at nearly all times cover
the difference In price between spayed heif
ers and steers of the same quality , weight
and fatness. Gencially one or two spayed
heifers in with a load of steers , If they are
of as good quality and ripeness as the steers ,
sell at an even price with the steers. We
do not consider spayed heifers worth anymore
moro than other heifers of equal quality
Cudahy Packing Company Steers are
worth 25 cents per 100 more than spayed
heifers of the same ago. grade , and general
quality. Wo do not consider spayed heifers
worth any more than those of similar age ,
grade and general quality not spayed.
SchwarzBchlld If o ! approximately the
same ago. grade and general quality , spayed
heifers would bring from 25 to 50 cents per
100 less than steers. 'Spayed heifers would
bring CO cents per 100 pounds moro than un-
spayed , If of the same quality and size. A
spayed heifer will dress from two to four
pounds per 100 more for live weight than If
spayed. If of equal quality.

Last night C. H. Wright received Injuries
from the kick of a mule which leave his re
covery In doubt. Wright had crawled through
a small trap door In the rear of James Ed
wards' stable at 907 South Sixteenth street
In search of a night's lodging. The door
opens Just behind the stalls of two mules
and Wright emerged almost against their
heels. One of the animals became frightened
and kicked , striking Wright squarely ! o the
stomach. The man was thrown a distance
of six feet and lay groaning in a corner.
The bara is located" beneath the Sixteenth
street viaduct , where there are few pasoara ,
and Wright was not found for two hours.
About 9 o'clock Edwards went to the stable
to give his mules a pirtlng attention for
the night and found Wright seml-conscloui
and In great pain. Ho was unable-to give
his name cad seemed la a serious condition.
The police surgeon WES summoned and
Wright wcu takes to the station. There
were no visible Injuries from the blow , but
the action of the heart was found to be
very unsatisfactory. Wright continued to
suffer pain end only regained partial con
sciousness. The physician did sot give an
opinion regarding the man's recovery.

The fact that a somewhat unusual innn-

given rlso to a supposition that several of

December 30. These letters contained checks.
In a couple of Instances these checks have
been presented to local banks after bclns

The firms which have reported missing let

company , W. V. Morse , Hlddell & Co. nnd
E. N. 'Bauer. ' In all a dozen or moro letters
have failed to reaco their dcutlnali us. They
were deposited In the boxes at Tenth and

Eleventh and Howard streets. So far as
known but unc of the missing checks
brought nny leturns. That was one missed
by the Ueclor & Wllhelmy haute , but the
name of the payee and the amount was
