Miss Or.villa Carey is home for the holidays from O'Neillvhere she has been attending school. S. L. Ellis , of Simeon was in town yesterday getting Christmas , goods and freight for his" store. While you enjoy your Christmas turkey don't forget your neigh bors who are less fortunate than yourself , and if you are able to make him enjoy a better time for Christmas , shell out. The Valentine stores have their windows nicely trimmed and pre sent a neat and attractive appear ance. Many nice and suitable presents for Christmas and the holidays can be found at the man.\ places in our town. 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 which the editor took part as audi ence. 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 paper. The Valentine Bottling Works puts up the finest kind of soft drinks. 17 Lyman Smith and Ralph Hutchinson - inson were transacting business in town yesterday from the 21 ranch southwest of Wood lake. 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 "Happy New Zear" and a pros perous one for turkeys and a good crop. 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. ienbrook QnilN. Winta McFarland was kicked by a horse last Saturday and ser iously injured , but is improving ' at fliis writing. Come everybody to the Xmas tree and have a good time. ! Martha Grooms and her brother Frank went to town Monday. Mrs. Swain and daughter went to town the fore part of this week. PORCUPINE. 111 * A week from Friday , New Year's day , feast of obligation.
