. One day a lady who had been reared
in the careful luxury of the old-fashioned
Virginia home was invited to visit the
kitchijn of a great Chicago hotel. She
wanted to go , but was afraid. When
asked why , she replied , "I'm afraid I'll
sec something that will forever destroy
my appetite for hotel food. " She went ,
and found everything delightfully clean.
Good housewives consider cleanliness
and purity first of all ; that's why Quaker
Oats is their choice among all oatmeals.
In making Quaker Oats the grain is
silted and rcsifted , passing through more
than fifty processes of cleaning before it
is cooked and rolled.
If you took a handful of oats and
scrubbed and polished and wiped each
separate grain , it wouldn't then be nearly i
as clean as Quaker Oats. No human
hand ever touches a single grain of
Quaker Oots from the field to your
kitchen. The best advice on foods you
could have is : Eat Quaker Oats every
morning for breakfast.
You'll find Ouaiier Oats put up in
two size packages , the regular size and
the large , family size for those who are
not convenient to the sl re.

the suggestion of ye editor , for we

early but put all in early that . \ou
can. Don't wait for traditional
thunder-storms before you begin
to plow. Mr. Tackelt says he is

he can this spriLg and thinks h is ;
going to be a bountiful -yield. . ij1

Sam Chesnut of Ainsworth wus
in town Tuesday. It-was his first
visit to our 'city fo'r about sx ;
years and he spent" the day vis.t-
ing with , , ojd friends -who. used to
know him when he lived in the
west end of the county on one of
the finest ranches ever seen in the
west for its size and he used to
come to Valentine more frequently -
ly than now. Sam looks about
the same as he used to and doesn't
seem to grow old any faster than
the rest of us.
The talk is that there will be tv , o
new passenger trains put on the
C. & N.V. . in a few weeks th it
will go through to the end of the
line of road and give us a daylight
train service westward and an
* * " *
evening train going east. In is is
supposed to be a permanent
equipment of the road and with
the new cut off to Valpntine and
other additional improvements we
can exppct faster trains and pos
sibly a division point at Valentine
which is being talked considerably.
Last Thursday as we went to
press there was a case before
County Judge Quigley in which
J. F. Kellar of Crookston was
asking for damages of § 100 for the
killing of a bull who happened co
trespass on the right-of-way and
locked horns with the locomotive
on one of the trains which disput
ed Master Bovine's
and the result was that Master
Bovine tumbled into the ditch.
Mr. Kellar had a number of his
neighbors with him as witnesses to
the value of the animal and in accordance -
cordance with their testimony the
county judge awarded Mr , Kellar
§ 100 , the amount of damage claim
ed. Max. E. Vip.rtel , Francis
McDermott , Fred Grpen. Edward
Pike , James McLaughlin , John j
Adamson and P.H. Young testified
a s to the value of the animal killed.
J udge Quigley was prompt in his
decision of questions raised by the
opposing counsel as to the admissibility -
bility of evidence anrl the case was
just as promptly decided at the
close- There was no dispute
further than as to the value of the
animal and that was determined by
the evidence of men well qualified
to judge in the matter because of
their acquaintance with the ani
mal in question , knowledge of
stock and of prevailing prices.
