ed to death at the house. Mrs.

D. M. Sears spent a c'ouple of
days in town last week , during
which time we enjoyed a pleasant
visit with him. jMr. Sears owns
a splendid ranch south of Kennedy
and has been fortunate in unload
ing his cattle and stocked up on
land. He has plenty of range for
several hundred head of cattle and
cuts 900 tons of hay. He recently
built another house on the west
side of his hay land to be conven
ient to his pasture.
C. M. Richardson returned from
Egerton , Ohio , last Saturday and
went up to his ranch on the freight
Saturday morning. He tells us
that he purchased an SO-acre farm
near town and likes his deal very
much. He has shipped several
cars of horses the last year , and
while at Egerton , Ohio decided it
would be a nice place for his fam
ily to live and moved back there
last fall. He still owns his ranch
here and will run it during the
summer , but his family expects to
remain in Ohio.
Frank Seger and wife returned
from Longmont , Colo , last Friday
morning , where thpy have been
since last spring. They are visit
ing friends in town and on North
Table and oxpect to remain here
several weeks before iroinjr back
to Colorado to live. Mr. Seger
sold his farm a couple of days ago
to Wm. Mumford for 81,000. A
deal had been made with Mr. Ut-
terback of White river but it fell
through on account of too mai y
being in the deal.
Several business men of Valen
tine are continually sending away
to get their printing done and nev
er fail to howl when they hear of
others sending away for goods
they handle. But that doesn't pay
the bill. These men who patron
ize other towns for their printing'
claim to be justified in doing so
because they can get their work
done cheaper than a local printing
office will do the work. If they
had been giving all their printing j
to home offices and orders in as '
large quantities as they are willing
to buy of other printing houses ,
their home printers could thrive
on the prices paid , if the printing
of Valentine was placed at home.
YG will give the people a list of
these men in the future who are
not entitled to support of our peo
ple on the grounds of spending
their money at home.

A Formula For Mnrrlncre.
The Frankfurter Zeitung has discov
ered a formula for marriage. Nothing
is more certain , It says , than that this
formula is right. The question asked
is what age should a man's bride be ?
The formula is : Let x be the man's
age. Then x-r2-f-7 = bricle's age. For
example , a man is 34 ; the half of his
age is 17 ; then 17 plus 7 is 24. The
bride's age should be 24. For a man of
34 , therefore , the proper age for his
wife is 24. Take the man of GO. x = GO
--2 = 30-1-7. The man of GO must marry
a TToman of 37. For the juvenile mar
riages of southern latitudes the formu
la is equally valid. The hot blooded ,
Castilian , for example , of 13 wishes to ,
marry. The formula says x = lS2 = 0 +
7s = 16. His wife should be 10 years old.
