The growth of the cattle market a
Kansas City is very apparent when on
studies the figures for the past fe1
years. The receipts for the month c
October were 231,300. which is 43.5G
more than a 3ear ago and is the larg
est month's receipts ever arriving a
the Kansas City stock yards. Th
previous big month was Septeinbei
1896 , when the figures were 229.94- :
The prices , too , are better than th
average of the past twelve years
The top price for native steers i
October waj $5.50 ; in 1894 the to
price for the month was $6 ; in 189i
$5.60 , and in 1891 , $ i > ; In all othe
years of the twelve the top figure fo
October was below $5.50.
Last Friday at Davenport & Thacl

sufferer ran in , opened his sampl
case and gave the patient one drin

Our reporter was not at the rescu
but looking up Dr. Loeb wanted t

rather bashful all he would say wa
that Hi Hi Bitters was good for wha

curence to save people's lives.

that the efforts being made in his bt

The Republican passed the 12t
milestone of its existence last week
and appropriately celebrated th
event by moving into a neat , new an
substantial office of its own. We ar
glad to note both these evidences o
the Republican's prosperity , an
trust that after we have been her
for twelve years we will be able to g
it one better and move into tw
buildings. Bro. Barker has worke
hard during his life in Valentine , an
his success must be a gratifA'in :
thing. Like most newspaper men hi
has had to bear mam * "slings an
arrows of outrageous fortune. " bu
now that he is able to lie on "flower
beds of ease , " we with all others wh
love Valentine and its business entei
prises make-our obeisance and AVIS'
him continued success.

Mr. Davis thinks he has two or thre <
hounds in his pack that cannot b
