Mrs. Frank Pitzer wrote to have the News sent to Winifred, S.D.  She states that in loading their car here a small black chest or trunk containing new ginghams, calicos, laces, and embroidery (not made up), had been either lost on the road to town or taken from the car.  It was covered with black and red silkoline on top and lid nailed on, and was lined with muslin.  The trunk was a keepsake from her mother and a liberal reward is offered for its return.

In spite of short crops the past two seasons Hand county is giving a good account of herself in the stock-raising line.  Last week Magness brothers cried three sales -- Thursday, Friday and Staurday -- which totaled about $29,000.  Dan Walsh's sale amounted to about $11,000, at Starr's sale over $9,000 worth of cattle, horses, hogs, etc., were sold, and at Magness' sale Saturday about $9,000 was realized, principally from the sale of cattle. On the 3rd inst. C.L. Starr cried a sale for Henry Biddle which footed up about $6,000.
Schools No. 1 and No. 3 in Bates District were dismissed last Friday in order that pupils who wished to do so might attend the funeral of Elbert Hanks.

Greeno made a deal for about sixty young sheep last week.  They were bought in the neighborhood of Wessington Springs, and Mr. Greeno and son Clyde drove down Monday to bring the "woolies" home.  The sixty sheep were to be loaded on two hay racks, and the larger part of two days was to be taken to make the round trip.

From the Free Methodist church in Bates Twp. took place the
funeral of Elbert Hanks last Friday.  The remains had been shipped from Bismarck, North Dakota, where death had taken place a few days before, the cause of the same not being definitely known here.  It seems, tho, that Mr. Hanks had some time back met with an accident resulting in a cranial injury, from which he never quite recovered.  He was about thirty-nine years, coming to Hand county with his parents about twenty-nine years ago.  From here he went to western Canada, where at the time of his death he owned a half section of land.  He leaves here seven half-brothers and sisters and step-mother to mourn his loss.  The older Mr. Hanks may be remembered by older readers of the News as one who suffered such severe injury in one of the county's earlier prairie fires as to cause his death.

MILLER-- A thief of mystery has been operating at St. Lawrence for a year or more.  His latest undertaking was to tap Charles Williams' till and take about $3.  The robberies often amount to several dollars.  Dectectives have been at work, but so far nothing has developed that thows any light on the mysterious midnight larcenies.

MILLER--R.L. Smith and John McCullen each have decided to dynamite an acre of ground here to test the value of that method of treating the soil for raising crops.  Others are talking of the same experiment.
Old Lovers Meet and
Their Marriage Follows

Edgemont, SD, March 10, 1913---Half a century ago J. L. Graves, aged 78, of Edgemont, while a resident of Antwerp, Ohio, had a sweetheart whom he intended to marry.  Unforeseen events arose and separated them and in the course of time both married.  The passing years left him a widower and she a widow.  While in Oakland, California, recently, Graves ran across his girl of more than half a century ago and finding she was a widow, again paid court to her, with the result that they now have been married.  Before marrying Graves she was Mrs. Clara J. Field.  The bride is 75 years of age.  She is the mother of eight children and he is the father of nine.  Soon after their marriage they departed for a visit at the old scenes at Antwerp, Ohio, and after a sojourn there for a time will return to Edgemont and make this city their permanent home.
