Oscar Graeff , the 11 year old
son of A. S. Graeff living near
Britt , was sick with malarial fever
last Saturday and was unable to
go to the old settlers picnic at Britt

appointment as he saw so many
people going. He had practiced
running expecting to compete for
the prize in one of the foot races
which very likely he'd have won ,
but there will be other chances for
him to run yet. Dr. Dwyer went
out Saturday night to see him and
Sunday left him much better.
The old settlers picnic at Britt
last Saturday was a success. About
500 people gathered to talk over
old times and enjoy a day together
in sport. They came from the
surrounding country 15 to 20 miles
around and met as a great family
with greetings and social conver
sation. The day was perfect and
the program was carried out as
billed without a jar or discord.
Music was furnished by the Mc-
Ilhon family for the dancers which
was highly appreciated by everyone
who heard them play. The purse

nine and the boys on the Table re

8 to 8 tallies in 7 innings. The
was divided and everyone was hap
py. The horse races were entered
by several contestants. 1st money
was won by the best horse or best
rider and they started off first dash.
Smaller sports and dancing closed
the day and the people went home
satisfied with having spent an en
joyable day. Every available rig
in Valentine was used and some
stayed at home for want of trans
