Rev. C. E. Connell is the new
M. E. minister for Valentine this
year. Many of our people are ac
quainted with him and also his
wife , who is a daughter of Joseph
VanBuskirk of Gordon , and is a
sister to Mrs. Fannie YanBuskirk-
Moore. They were formerly in
charge of the Merriman pulpit
and come here from Atkinson.
A bum printer , W. IJ. Totten ,
who had formerly had employment
on the Cow Boy , dropped into
town last Friday and wanted a
square meal and work enough to
pay for it. We sent him down to
the hotel for dinner , expecting
him to come back promptly to go
to work. We had a lot of job
work on hand and expected to give
him enough work to earn some
money but he failed to show up
after dinner. We think that such
men are not to be trusted , and are
thankful to lose only a quarter to
learn the man.

his charge of the Presbyterian
church at Valentine and has accept
ed a similar charge at Norfolk.
He preaches his farewell sermon

in Valentine during the past year
