The glorious results of this season's, Harvest of golden grain will pour ;i stream of sound money into the pockets of every Dakota farmer. South Dakota has thousands of acres 'of choice farmiajr ttnd ranch land lying east of the Missouri river, and within one day's ride from Chicago or Milwaukee, which can now be bought reasonably cheap, but which before the end of another year may be advanced in price. .- T,he stock raising industry in South,. , Dakota is 'profitable, and eastern capi* tal is now^being Snv.estjed. in^cattle and sheep growing in that state. Diversified farming, the growing of live stock, "&nd the products of the dairy, are placing South Dakota foremost in the ranks of the successful western states. Those desiring full information on the subject, and particularly those who wish to seek a new home or purchase land, are requested to correspond with W. E.

Well, Lange took a mean advantage of this fact and whenever our train was just pulling out of a station he would stick his head out of the window and yell: 'Oh, Hankl Come here!' And every native on the plat- Term would yell, 'What, me? 1 and break his neck trying to reach the train before it got away. "Along toward noon we passed a town that promised unusually well In Hanks. There must have been 100 natives lounging on the platform, and, ae the train started up, Bill howled: 'Hank, Hank, come here, quick!' 'What, me?' came the answering howl of 97 of the 100 natives as they broke: for the train. And they fell over each other in heaps, while Bill stuck his head further out of the window and hooted at them. And the confounded train stopped about 200 feet on at a water tank and 75 of those Hanks boarded the train to hunt for the fellow who liad been having fun with them. They began to climb in at the windows and batter on the doors, and they'd have killed Bill sure If he hadn't thrown J15 out of the window to buy tobacco as a peace offering.

George Harper, one of the pitchers jf the Brooklyn club, of the National League and American association, was born Aug. 17, 1866, at Milwaukee, Wls., and learned to play ball with the amateur teams around his native place. His first professional engagement was with the Stockton club, of the California league, in 1888, he taking part that year .in. twenty-seven championship contests, and greatly aiding in landing his team in first place in the race for the pennant. He remained with the Stocktons during the season of 1889, and participated-that year in forty-seven, championship games. In 1890 he was with--the-Sacramento =team, of the same league, and his club -flu-;; ished second in the championship race. In 1891 he was a member of the San Jose team, of' the California league, participating in eighty-three championship contests, and materially helping his club to win the pennant offered by that league. He continued with the Sun Jose club throughout the season of 1892, In 1893 he was with the Stockton club, of the same league. In 1894 he began the season with the Nashville ?es, , ith any- wtuwl* disease, Jf • Thirty years ago there were only, about two dozen explosive compounds known to chemists, Now there areover one thousand, . _ _____ .

KITTRIDGB. larity dates almost from the first day he was seen In the white uniform of the Chicago team, seven years ago. Kittridge was born in Clinton, Mass., Oct. 9, 1869, and began to play ball before he left the high school at Pitch- burg, where he was well known. His professional career began when he was 18 years old. He accepted an engagement with the Rutlands for the sea'.Bon of 1887. The following year he' went with the Portsmouths of the New England league and ranked fourth among the backstops of that organization. In 1889 he joined the Quincy team of the Interstate league. His work during that season was so good It attracted the attention of the Chicago management, and it was decided to give Klttridge a trial in fast company. He began playing under the Anson banner at the start f of the season of 1890, and that year took part in no less than ninety-six of the championship contests. He secured a rank of seventh among the catchers of the league, but his batting .was .light. The ^following ; ye ai ' . n ? did Better,' both,/at,> 'the bat and in fielding, and has" improved steadily ever since in both de- ( partments of the game. Today Kittridge stands as one of the leading catchers of the league, and Is certainly one of the most popular, not only at home, but in all the cities of the big circuit. He is a most conscientious worker for the best'interests of the team and is reliable at all times. He is principally noted for his remarkable accurate throwing to the bases, and in that respect it is doubtful if his equal has ever been seen In the league. He is what is known as a glutton for punishment, and faces all kinds of pitching with the greatest apparent ease. His style is easy, and graceful and tie never loses his head. He is game, and one of the few players who thinks his team is;never beaten until: the'last' man has ; been put out. He and Griffith make a battery that can be relied upon at any time. Last year Kittridge and John Grim, of the Brooklyns, were tied with an average of .924 for sixth position among the catchers of the league. The Chicagoan's batting average wae .224. Kittridge is willing always to do more than his share of the work when his alternates are on the hospital list.
