Others arc so blame full of schemes that the Devil wouldn't trust them fo'r a minute. The Farmers' Institute will be postponed until some time the lat ter part of March or the first of April on the account of Dr. Peters not being able to be here at the date formerly advertised for the meeting. Watch for future an nouncements. It makes a diifcrcncc as to who wants favors. Some will ask them for their friends. Others arc cheeky enough to ask for them selves. Others like Johnny , who wanted the teacher to lick Jim be cause Jim had eaten a piece of pie that Johnny wanted to eat. it will pay the people of every community to look out for high handed schemes during the de velopment oftheir" resources. There's alwa"ys a chance to shut off a deal that.would be detriment al to the best interests of the com- munity'if you'll work at the prop er time. .The selfishness of humanity is clearly manifested where" dollar squeezers try to rope in IFncle . ' Sam's' .employees to fight mercan- ' tiie battles ostensibly and in reality arc-employees of the element they assist. Broad minded -nicn who imagine the'Post Check Currency System will be'favored because it . furnishes -an--easy way p- send money do not look at the Mail Or der houses' wno hope to thrive by the Post Check and by the assist ance of Uncle Sam's clerks' . s The Kural free delivery system upon which Uncle Sam has spent thousands of dollars has been a success in some ways. Thousands of people have been benefitted and and" there arc abuses which are cropping out here and there which in -measure counteract the good results. " Tliere a'retpeople in this world who try to imagine that the world jwags for them alone and that everything is being done for them alone. The Mail Order Houses now pushing the Post Check Currency System expect to use the Kural Delivery mail routes to further their interests , act as their agents and conduct their stores with the assistance af Uncle Sam's clerks. . . ADDITIONAL LOCAL Miss "Wren Donoher is clerking fo ? T. C. Hornby. Jos. Spirk and wife , of Neligh , are visiting in the city.- i Mrs. Hett , mother of Pat Hctt , died at her home .west of this city last Sunday. A. M. Morrissey was given a pleasant surprise Tuesday night in honor of his birthday. 4 > 4Mrs. . Wni. Steele and children went up to Gordon Sunday night to visit with her father and mother. I f Mrs. Lillie wits found guilty of murdering her husband at David City. The jury recommended a life sentence. d W. H. Wilkinson , of Kennedy , Ci came into town the first of the \ week and called to visit with the tl ; tlCJ editor. Ho icHs us that there will CJ be a public dance at the home of tl 3. S. Grange , near Oasis , on Mch. gosA . . . . ' . Mi Will Shelbourn brought a load of onions in from his place on the Snake river Tuesday and sold to our business men. The ladies of the Christian En deavor will give a dime social in Davenport's hall , Friday evening , March 6 , at 7:30. All arc cordial ly invited. Miss Pease , a sister to Mrs. M. E. Harden , assisted us last week on press day < to get out the DEMO CRAT. Miss Pease has worked in the office of her brother on the Charles Mix New Era , of South Dakota. The DEMOCRAT comes out a day late this week caused by the roller carriage of our press breaking while printing the first side of the paper. We promptly sent Law rence , the younger" manager in chief over for blacksmith Breuk- lander who came in and began cleaning up the'wreck. . The press is again in good running order as you can see by. this paper. The editor was surprised this week by receiving a-box by ex press from Lees Summit , Mo. , which upon opening we found to be a box of the popular Missouri smoking tobacco which was.raised on the farm of our uncle , Frank M. , Alley who lives two miles north * * / r * of Cpckrelt , Mo. , Last July while visiting him we saw the tobacco growing and walked up and down the rows of the "long gre'on" which now through the generosity of that good old -Missouri farmer we are permitted to again puff .the smoke of the natural leaf which is more appreciated than a clear Hayana. _ "Mayhelive long and prosper" is the wish of his nephew , , who will never forget' the pleasant hours passed in his company. We hope to again visit with the whole souled , ' good people of Jackson countyMo. . , and spend more time with them on another visit. * * The DEMOCRAT is not in favor of the Town Board . allowing a . citizen _ _ - , < to use" its name for the purpose of securing from the -government , a. tract of land that was' ordered sold to the city for a park in a special- bill in congress which we.as citi zens and residents of this cifcy re quested in a petition to that honorable - * * orable body. We think that the land which is mentioned in that bill , amounting to 720 acres , is worth more money to our city than the money required to pay for it , which by congress was fixed at § 2-00 per acre. Our town can pay the money required for the pur chase of the land and it will be a good investment. If the town should go before congress , however - or with a second petition to co gress to cede the land to the citj for the bencfit'of a sta'te norma school which is to be located here by our legislature , or for the use of-our city , I believe that our town can have and own the whole tracj of 720 acres as , provided in the bil without the payment of a dollar. Much greater gifts have been made for. less worthy objects by con gress. .From The iin worth Herald Mrs. Minnie Brayton , of Valen tine , visited .with her parents at this place this week. < Will Steele was down from Val entine Monday looking after his farm south .of town and visiting old-friends here. Daniel S. Narber , late of Sheri dan county , Kansas , last Saturday bought the Val Nicholson farm south of town , near the James Briggs farm. He will build a new house at onne and become a citizen of Brown county. We welcome Iiirn to the best -county in the best state in the union. Village Nominations. The electors of Hhc Village of Valentine are called to meet in the district court room of the county ourt house , at S o'clock p. m. , Wednesday , March 11 , 1903 , for he purpose of nominating three candidates for Village Trustees on lie Citizens Ticket. - , ' . .C. H. CORNELL , n I A Few of His Difficulties. An Indian Territory editor has this to say of his work : ' "Editing a newspaper is a pleasant ant- business if you can stand it. "If it contains many advertise ments a subscriber complains that they take up too much space. If there is a lack of advertising it is unpopular and the people won't have it. "If we attend church regular they say we go for effect. If we stay away from churcli. they , say we are monstrously heathenish. " "If we accept an invitation to a wedding they say that we were only invited to write it up. "If we go to the opera house they say we go on free tickets. If we arc seen upon the streets too often they say we neglect our business. If we- avoid going on the street they say we don't hustle around after the news. "If we publish a man who has brought disgrace upon his family , the friends of the family never forgive us. If we , out of goodness of heart , decline to say anything on the subject , the man's enemies are disappointed and we are brand ed as white livered cowards. " From The Cody Cow Hey Andrew Steele and wife return ed Monday morning from their Canadian visit , having spent five ; weeks viewing old home scenes and mingling -with relatives andf old friends. Mrs.Steele visited 'a sister whom she had not seen for1 32 years. While they enjoyed their visit immensely , they are glad * to get back to Cherry county. One of the changes made by the- F. E. & M.'V. , is thex discharge of all stock solicitors. This relieves "Stock Agents B. F. Carter and Mr. Leaver. The company proposes - poses to take care of what business , that comes to it unsolicited , and al-'i low its heretofore solicitors to hunt , another ( job , and this seems to us * , a. sensible move in the' interestsof , economy. Other campanies have ! adopted'the same plan and it isfce-i .lj&.tf < jd that the business will now go' where it naturally belongs , with , no expense to the companies to se cure it. Mary Stasch , wife of Joseph Stasch , Sr. , died ! very suddenly at her home near Nenzel on last Wed-1 nesday , February * 1S , 1903 , aged 59 years ! Mrs. Stasch seemexl in j usual health and was preparing to ' visit a sick neighbor. When in ! the act of putting her coat on she fell backward on the floor , dead. She was buried the following Fri- 'day , February 20. The deceased was born in Germany , Feb. 14 , 1844. She was married to Joseph Stasch in 1864 : , and ten years later they came to America , and April 27 , 1887 , they came from ; Wiscon- .sin to the home in Cherry county , where she' died. Mrs. Stasch was the mother of IS children , 14 of whom are living. She was always a kind and dutiful wife and moth er , and an excellent neighbor. The funeral services will be held some time in the future. She was a member of the Catholic church. Onste Butterfly Robert Boward WAS transnctinjf business in Oasis Monday. One of the worst storms of the sea son was experienced last week. Mrs. C. F. Cooper has had quite a sick babe but is reported better now. Butch White and twin brothers dined at Ed Harris' Sunday enroute J to Valentine. j Geo. Sawyer bought W. H. Wilkin- son's hay and is feeding a bunch of his cattle at that place.
