There is no teacher in the Doty SU
district this year and the result fo
will be that next year that district
will not be entitled to the state ap- ;
portionment. The cause of no
school we learn was that no one
wanted to board the teacher and r"e
so none was secured. I .
James Brantner has been sick
for a couple of weeks with the grip. '
He orders the DEMOCRAT sent to
his sister , Mrs. M. TVaybraht , at
Plattsmouth , Nebr. , his old home ,

Tom Hudson was in town a sh
couple of days this week waiting es
for our merchants to get some coal of
so that he could haul out a load. eii
Mr. Fischer was out of coal only a sc
day and keeps his customers well to ;
supplied with good fuel. It pays OY
to do business with a live merchant
who has what you want and when j , .
yon want it.
A colored soldier , of Ft. Nio-1 y
brara , took advantage of a couple i
of Valentine men last Sunday night th

and knocked him down and kicked f o
him several times. A friend ran & \
up to help the first man up when = ,
he too was knocked down. "We da
hear there was no occasion for this w
man to wreak his vengeance upon 01
two of our citizens and to thus take m
advantage of them by striking withai
out warning. There are some bul-1 vc
lies who tryto get up a reputation g ]
as .bad men. in this way an l for fear ; 01
of getting hurt will strike .without j cc
warning to'take all the. advantage , nc
they can. I w

We heard.thatthere was a nian
ere last week who wanted to put
UI an opera house and that he failed
get' the necessary encouragc-
nent. We would like to know
ivhat j kind of encouragement the
man wants. The town wants an
3pera house and is willingior any
one to build it. But if on the'con
trary < the man wants the to.wn to
juilcj the opera house and give it
him then we are willing that he
should pass on. He surely can't
jxpect us to donate a year's prices
tiqkets to the opera in advance
either. We are not going into
schemes of that kind but if we have
build our opera house , we'll
In January , when the orchestra
from Ft. ISiobrara came down and
played to the largest audience that
Valentine ever turned out for such

Mr. Safranek , the band master ,
ays that he is ready to accommo
date and will play a concert that

orchestra has made great improve
ments during the last two months I ,1 ,
incl this performance will be a
veritable treat of music. The pro
