The Valentine high school alumni
held their anual banquet Saturday
evening , May 27,1905 , in Frater
nal hall. The class of J05 , num
bering fifteen members were
initiated. Numerous toasts were
given and responded to. A phon

of the evening. Prof. R. H.
Watson was master of ceremonies.
The severest electrical storm of
the season visited Valentine Sun
day night. The lightning was
terrific and done considerable dam
age to property around town. A
transformer on the main wire of
the electric light plant was struck
and rendered the plant useless the
rest of the night. Mr. Hewett ,
the electrician , was quite severely
shocked. The M. E. church steeple
was struck and damaged some dur
ing the storm.
Last Friday afternoon the Crooks-
ton "Locals" met the Valentine

ure of the game was a home run

It is reported that Dr. J. C.
Dwyer died a few days ago at
Omaha where he had gone to take
the Keely cure. Dr. Dwyer prac
tised a long time in Valentine and
at one time had a well equipped
hospital here , treating some of the
most complicated cases. He was
considered one of the best surgeons
in the west.
A number of fishing parties have
made the trip to Hackberry and
Dewey lakes in the last few days
and report fine fishing in Hack-
berry lake , but seines and nets
have been used in Dewey lake un
til most of the fish have been taken
out. Special Game Warden W.
A. Kimbell made an examination
of the lakes last Monday and found
one trammel net one hundred feet
long by four feet deep set in the
east end of Dewey lake. The net
was taken out and destroyed , but
the owners of the net could not be
found. Taking fish in this way
is a violation of the game law and
it is a shame that we have such
violators living in the county. We
understand that the state game
warden intends to station a man
out in the lake country to see that
no more seining or netting of fish
is done , and the violators had bet
ter take warning and cease their
Sad and Sadden Death.
The most sudden and unexpected
death that has ever occurred in the
city was that of Mrs. Ray , wife of
Rev. C. W. Ray , pastor of the M.
E. church. Sunday evening she
attended services in the church
and Monday morning she took
part in work of the League , all of
the time being apparently in good
health. After eating dinner she
laid down upon the lounge and
soon fell asleep. Mr. Ray was at
his desk in the room adjoining ,
engaged in his work and was not
aware that death was hovering so
near. At 3:45 : , Dr. Clough called
to ascertain the state of her health
and was directed to the room by
Rev. Ray who informed him that
she was yet sleeping. On entering
the room , the doctor was horrified
to find that she was dead and had
been dead for at least 15 minutes.
For some time her devoted hus
band could not bring himself to a
realization of the truth of it for it
was a sad blow. Deceased was to E
have become a mother within a
short time but death is attributed
to acute heart trouble.
In September of last year , as
Miss Clara Belle Watson she was
married to Rev. Ray at Lincoln ,
Nebr. , coming with him at once to
Alliance where she has since ful
filled every duty a pastor's wife
owes to her husband and church in
a , faithful , devoted and energetic
manner. She was but twenty-five
years of age , educated , refined and
of a very amiable and sweet dis
position , beloved by every member
of a large congregation. Funeral
services were conducted in the
church Tuesday evening , conduct
ed by Rev. D. J. Clark , presiding
aider , who arrived as soon as pos
sible after receipt of the sad news.
He was assisted by Rev. Dr.
Bogue and Rev. McConnell. It is
said to have been the largest fun
eral ever known in Alliance. The
remains were shipped to her child
hood home in Indiana for burial.
The sympathies of the entire com
munity go out to Rev. Ray in the
sad loss of his devoted wife. Al
