goods and freight for his" store.
While you enjoy your Christmas

yourself , and if you are able to
make him enjoy a better time for
Christmas , shell out.

Cherry county raises hogs :
Lewis Taylor brought in 9 head
of hogs Tuesday and sold to Hen
ry , Stetter of the Citizen's meat
market.They weighedtWGO pounds
and he got § 3.55 per cwt. One of
the hogs weighed 575 pounds.
It's a wonder that several of the
proprietors of stores in Valentine
never think it necessary to adver-
vertise Ju THE' DEMOCRAT' to. tell
our many readers what they have
to sell. It looks like .they either
do not want our readers' trade , or
that they play us for suckers and
think we'll come anyway.
J. M. Clarkson , W. T. Bullis
and.I. . . M. Bice went up northwest
of Crookston Monday to view a
road between Chas. Pavlik's farm
and one of J. . R. Fee's places.
They found the weather cool go
ing but enlivened the journey with
a ready flow of wit and humor of

Gco. A. Miles , of Ainsworth ,
has sold the Ainsworth Herald to
Otto Mutz , the editor of the West
ern Rancher. We look forward
to the first edition of the Herald
under its new management and
wish the proprietor success. We
do not know how the paper will be
run nor what the plans of Mr.
Mutz are , but we feel confident
that the paper has gone into
good hands and that Mr. Mutz will
make a success , of it. Mr. Miles
writes u p a very nice valedictory (
in which he sums up the situation
of coming to Brown county in 'S3
and April 1,1892 purchasing a
half interest in the Home Rule
which amounted to but very little
antl has since bought his partner's
interest and will leave Brown coun
ty with some capital , though not
wealthy , and owned his plant com
plete without a dollar's indebted
ness. Mr. Miles is a cheerful ,
wholesouled fellow at all times and
has lots of friends. He makes
them where-over he goes. Mrs.
Miles is a great help to Mr. Miles
and has been a good cheerful part
ner during the vicissitudes of an
editor's career. They have the
good will and wishes of a host of
friends among whom we include
every editor of the E. V. E. A.
Senator Mutz is well known as a
writer and as people become better
acquainted with him they will
realize that there is .something do
ing at Ainsworth. "He has our
best wishes and we think Ains-
worth can feel proud of a man of
his ability in charge of their local

Geo. A. Johnson , of near Crooks-
ton , ; came driving up to our office
last Tuesday with a big fat turkey
. ( we have a notion to spell it with
, a capital letter ) and handed it to us
in exchange for THE DEMOCRAT.
It will make us a merry Christmas -
masand - we wish Mr. Johnson
and , family a ' "Merry Xmas , " a

Little Willie , the youngest daugh
ter of Matt Jelly and wife near
Sparks , has the whooping cough
and had a severe coughing spell
last Monday evening. She stopped
breathing for several seconds but
recovered. Her. father came up
to town Tuesday to get some medi
cine and called at our office to hand
the editor a Chistmas dollar. So
many people forget the Editor on
Christmas and New Year and in
fact all the remainder of the time ;
that we remember Mr. Jelly very
kindly and hope both he and the
little girl will enjoy better health
and AVC whish them a merry Xmas.
