Don't forget the democratic

W. G. BallaVd was in town

well. He has been troubled with
a cold or grip for several days and
is staying in Woodlake to doctor
up and came to Valentine on busi
ness and to get some medicine.
Last Sunday was a beautiful
spring day , warm and sunshiny ,
and lots of people were out walk
ing about town and down to the
fish hatchery. Quite a number of
Kooseveltians were out with their
aaby carriages. Lots of fine days
There will be a silver medal con

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bray ton
took their son Donald to Omaha
Tuesday to have his tonsils treated
or operated upon. They had be
come so enlarged as to cause diffi

At a meeting of the base ball
fans in this city a few days ago it
was decided to raise money by
subscription to employ a pitcher
this coming season. I believe
they claim that a good pitcher can
be obtained at § 80 to § 100 per
month and the boys think they
can keep him busy playing ball
§ 500 or § 600 worth. That's lots
of ball for a small town but hit's
sport if we can stand the strain.
Some are inclined to the belief that
we could afford to admit that we
are playing out of luck until some
good ball pitcher could be induced
to locate here in business or to
work for some one who could
spare him about half the time to
play ball , but the enthusiasts say
different and want a pitcher to be
! on tap all the time and ready to
play. Considerable . money has
i Genuine Tigers
We have on display in our window this week a bunch of genuine
tigers , not the ordinary kind but the latest we could obtain from
the famous establishment of Keith Bros. & Co. , Chicago , 111.
Each one of these tigers carries a price card in plain red figures
and is valued from $1.50 to $3.00 , in any size you want. They
are all the 1908 variety and present a pleasing and novel ap
pearance which belongs only to this special kind of tiger. We ft *
guarantee perfect satisfaction to every purchaser of these ' new-
spring tigers and should there be any growl from either you or
the tiger , we will gladly refund your money.
Take a look at them.
W. H. Carter of Cody was in
town Monday on business.
Rev. Father Leo M. Blaere went
down to Ainsworth last Saturday
to officiate at the funeral of Mrs.
A. W. Scattergood , who died Feb.
20 , 190S. A. M , Morrissey of
Valentine and Arthur Mullen of
O'Neill represented the O'Neill
Council of the Knights of Colum
bus , of which order the deceased
was a member.
From the interest and inquiries
shown and heard regarding "The
Girl and The Stampede , " which is
to play here next Monday night ,
they will have the banner house of
the season. The show-going people
ple of today enjoy a good laugh
and from all accounts "The Girl
and The Stampede" is filled with
humorous situations and witty
dialogue. The play and company
is said to be the strongest visiting
Valentine this season.
Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Hornby and
son departed Monday morning for
Biloxi , Miss. , where they expect
to spend the remainder of the
winter. Mrs. Charles Sparks and
daughter are there visitng and so
journing this winter and they hope
to escape the severe and chilly
north winds which were so com
mon last winter , though this win
ter has been very mild thus far.
We cannot hope for better winters
here than this but they decided to
go last Christmas when C. C.
Tackett predicted a cold January
and February and the illness of
Tom's little boy prevented them
getting away sooner.

Who will you have for new
members ? Will it be the same
board re-elected , or do you want
some change ? Among the avail-
ables who would make good of
ficers , aside from the present in-
cumbentsr"and who also would run
