O 3 Ff4 A V < V > f * ft i IVH > B TALK OF THE TOWN oo county commissioners vvil meet on Tuesday , June 10. The Union hotel has changed hand and J. F. Jotter is the new propriet or. Butter is getting plenty in the Val entine market and has dropped to 1 ( cents. J. Sterling Morton's paper , the Con servative , has been discontinued sinc ( his death. . , The. boys of our town are making it a business cf seining and selling minnows. * I. O. Riley , of Lincoln , spent Sun day in town with L. J. Moffet. The } are old chums. Wm. Skeliy , of St. Francis Mission , Rosebud agency , .was in town on bus iness last Friday. ; County Surveyor Leach was in town Saturday , attending the republican county convention. Miss Inez Pettycrew. who has" been teaching at Newport , arriyed home last Sunday night. She intends go- jng east , with her mother , visiting , stopping two or three days at Lin coln. Geo. Harder and family spent the most of the past week out 'on their ranch near Arabia. Miss Frances re mained at Arabia for a visit with Iriends for a few days. Len Bivins fixed "his house Sunday. At least he had started to fix it when he fell a distance of eighteen feet and hurt his hip. He will finish the ] ob after the doctor gets through with him. The formal opening , of Fraternal hall , which was arranged for this evening , has been postponed on ac count of the death of John Shores , who was a member of .the Masonic lodge. It is said that there is .nothing new under the sun , but we don't believe it. On Tuesday a squaw was seen on our streets carrying an umbrella to keep herself and papoose from get ting sunburned. The automobilunatics ot New York have had a speed contest. The re sult to date is one killed and four in jured. They hope to be ablo to show a better string of victims with a lit tle more practice. The people of Nebraska can read of the strike of coal miners in Penn sylvania at this time of the year witu out shedding a tear. They only hope the drivers of the ice wagons will re frain fron going on a strike. W. D. Ricketts , the assessor for Merriman precinct , was in town Tues day with his list. He killed two birds with one stone by calling at these headquarters and maKing himself solid with the administration until 1903. 1903.Dr. Dr. Ed. S. Furay , of Omaha , has [ eased a suite of office rooms in the aew Fraternal hall building and will make Valentine his future home. Be is a son of JohnB. FUray , whom all old Ntbraskans know personally jr by reputation. TJ. Boyer , the town herd man , tried to break a horse , Sunday , and the ; ame ended with a small balance in fa'vor of the horse. Mr. Boyer fell under the horse and crawled out with Ws stomach'bacK and shoulder out of plumb. The horse was not hurt. The fortune jteller packed up and moved to greener pastures , Monday. 'A fool and his money is soon parted" and fortune tellers make the parting sasy. The authorities should protect the weak-minded patrons of these fakirs by an occupation tax of 81.000 a. day A meeting was held in Judge Wal- cott's office Monday evening for the purpose of making arrangements for celebrating the glorious Fourth. The meetinn was well attended and HII executive committee was selected who will appoint working committees and run the thing to a successful fin- , ish. Look out for a fine , large time , A.W.Peterson , of Arabia , was in town Tuesday and regi tereii a kick b.epaus.e the DpMgci ? hafl failed to r ch.

W. S. Barker returned from Nev York , Sunday. Another of those "million dollar1 rains arrived yesterday. Mtltendorf bas placed a new set ol fixtures in his saloon that"are the finest in northwest Nebraska. Graphophones are getting so thick in1 York that the Democrat suggests that they be taxed the same as dogs. Supt. Harmon , of the Elkhorn , hatf his special car attached to the east- bound freight , Monday , and made a trip-along his division. The celebration for the opening of Fraternal hall , which was billed for this evening , has been postponed to a future date , probably the 17th. / Henry Porath , of the German set tlement west of town , brought in four hogs , Monday morning , that sold for about $70 , which is not so worse. Mr. Joyce and wife have commenced housekeeping in the rooms over the DEMOCRAT office , Mr. Joyce is filling the position of day operator in the absence of Mr. Yoerg. Messrs. Jackson & Bray ton are do ing gome tall swearing over the mis take in the shipment of the iron work for the front of their new building , which delays its completion. John F : Porath has contracted to put down three well ? for D. A. Han cock and was in town Monday mak ing arrangements for same. He is having all the well work he can do and his work gives general satisfac * tion. Glen Hart , a genial traveling sales * man for C. Shenkburg Company of Sioux City , called at our office last Saturday while in town and told us ) f the 3 Star Coffee which they are aandlingandinserted.au ad calling the attention of the general public. See local notice. ' Chas. McNare and wife were in town ast week visiting friends and trans- icting business with our merchants. Mr. McNare is an old resident of this : ounty and by energy and persever- ince has become the possessor of a ine ranch near Wood Lake , which is veil stocked , and he is now beginning ; o reap the fruits of his years of toil. A stranger stopped at the Fremont louse in Crawford , last Friday night , md in the morning accused one of ; he girls employed in the house of obbing him and nourished a revolv- T around in a reckless way. The narshal of the town was summoned ind came to the rescue and was quick- : r on the shoot than the stranger and he result was a coroner's inquest rith a stranger playing the leading ole. It is comforting to see a Memorial lay celebrated as it was in Valentine. ? he usual thing is a day of sports , iase ball , pink lemonade and winding ip with a grand ball in the evening. ? his is a day set apart in remem- rance of those who died that the ation might live and to see the day iade a day of sport instead of a fun- ral celebration must be soothing to he survivors in many places. In 'alentine all business was suspended uring the gi eater part of the day .nd the time was devoted to the roper exercises of the day , John AlexanderDowie , whose pray- rs"failed to save his daughter's life , 3 out with an explanation that she ad been disobedient and that was he reason why his prayers failed to ave any influence at the throne of race Of course there is always a eason for these things , as in the ae of an old surgeon who had ptr- ormed an operation with fatal re- ults. He said the operation was a access and the patient would have ecovered if he hadn't made a mistake nd sewed the sponge up in the open- ag he had made. According to the dispatches from Washington , Senator Millard has re- : eiyed a protest from a number of msiness men in northwest Nebraska egarding the action of the agent at" losebud and the traders , who , it is aid , get first crack at the Indian noney and , fajl to. allow the proper hare of the same to cross the line in , o Nebraska.
