John Cordia1 Nigger Bab } ' was hurt j
on the left hind leg by Pumpkin Head
jumping into him in one of the first
races. It was a pitiful sight to see
the pretty black horse come in sec-
and running nearly half the race aft
er being hurt so thathe limped off
the track on three legs. This horse
has long been a familiar one to Val
entine people and is something of a
pet on account of his age.
Races here last week were the best
known in the west and the. best horses
in the state were here to run for the
largest and best pur.ses ever offered
in the state. 1500 to 200Q people were
here and from morning to night there
was races , sports and good-natured ,
generous hilarity. Our citizens en
tertained the people as well as they
could and when people again look lor
a good time they will know where to
Our races were well attended by
Rosebud and Cherry county people.
For the past two weeks it has been
almost impossible for all the strang
ers in town to get beds though extra
efforts have been made and-cots that
could be put in spare rooms have
been largely used so that in some way
the people could be cared for thr.ig'i
during the past week of races our
town was so crowded that there were
actually not beds enough in the town
to go around and hundreds of people
were up all night and took turn
about sleeping so that a large num
ber of beds were in constant use.
About 11 o'clock Wednesday ot last
a serious accident occurred in the
G.ernian settlement nearRiege. Geo.
O. Weisllog a } * oung man of sterling
qualities making his wav honorably
bv honest toil had gone to the * , hay
fleid to rake hav with a team and
rake. Wolves had been plentiful and
George took his shot gun along
hatl shot a wolf and was raking
hav carrying his gun resting on the
rake and against his knees when a
jar dislodged the gun and it slid to
the groundbut in falling the ham
mer struck on the rake discharging
the gun and shot Mr. Weisttog's left
arm entering just below the elbow.
George fell from tRe race and the
horses began to run but he says he
does not remember of falling and
started to catch hia team which he
succeeded in doing and rode a mile
and a half home during which time
the blood from his arm saturated his '
clothing and made the rake look like
a slaughter pen. A fiesh team har
nessed and ready was standing in the
barn , which was hitched to the buggy
while George lay on the kitchen floor
blood running the length of the
room from his wound , but getting up
walked to the buggy , got in and was
driven to town in less than two hours j
and with scarcely any blood left got
out and was assisted into the house at
Taylor's restanrant where his arm
had to be amputated shortty after oj'
Dr. Compton , the Post Surgeon and
hospital steward C. M. Hunter. The
bone was broken and shattered about
the elbow and pieces dropped from it
as he rode'from the hay field. Ys -
terdayvc called on Mr. W. and found
hi u cheerful and doing well under
the care of Dr. Compton and Wm.
Epke as nurse.
Wm. Ferdon and wife are stopping
in'town this week.
Dan Truax's horses were out o'f Inck
in not taking as many prizes but run
some close races.
We would suggest that our next
races be devoted more exclusively to
Cherry countyjand Rosebud horses.

In addition to the regular fprogram
of races last week several matched
races were run. Rosebud Girl [ owned
by C. P. Jordon of Rosdbud won in
every race she was entered.
A large plate glass was put in the
frame of the Cherry County Bank

of candy. This one is much heavier
