A. B. Cameron of Schuyler ,
Nebr. , was "one of the fortunate in
drawing a homestead in Tripp
county. He registered at our of-
fice last October and is now re-
siding on his homestead about 30
miles northeast of Valentine. He
was in town the first of the week ,
hauling out a load of building ma- ,
terial and supplies , and visited
relatives , Rev. W. W. Wells and
family. I. i . _ . .
Earl Billings' was accidentally
shot by Aaron Kast , his step2"
father ; last Monday forenoon
while loading a revolver. - The ,
cartridges' didn't go in ver.y
smoothly and -closing the re-
volver it was discharged , killing
the boy. Two years before Aaron
Kast shot his own leg off with the
same revolver. Kast lives on the
old Grenough place about 8 miles
southeast of Norden.
The editor and his better half
celebrated the Fourth of July at
the "Big Elm" on the Mobrara
river south of Irwin last Saturday.
A large number from the sur-
rounding country congregated
there and had a big day , filled with
sports , horse races , foot races , a
ball game and smaller sports. We
understand they have been cele-
brating at the "Big Elm" the past
three S years ' and each year the
number increases until the ' 'Big
Elm" has become famous for a
celebration point. George W.
Beamer was the master of cere-
monies and president of the day.
Henry Borneman is treasurer : of
the association and Quartus Skin-
ner is marshal of the day. We
were the guests of Mr. : Beamer
and his estimable , wife while there
and we enjoyed their hospitality.
Mr. Beamer has : a nice home and
some fine farm land which he calls
the Box 0 ranch.
M. King , who left last week for
his home at Denison , la. , arrived
home safely but suffered an at-
tack of heart failure last Satur-
day. A message was sent to his
daughter , Mrs. W. T. Kincaid , to
come. and she started Saturday
night but arrived after Mr. King's
death which occurred Sunday
morning. Mr. King has been
quite feeble for several years but
has kept up and enjoyed playing
chess which was his chief amuse-
ment and played frequently by
mail " , indicating the move on a
postal card. He was a good play-
er and found considerable pleasure
and consolation in his declining
years over the chess board. Mr.
King was not strong when we saw
him last , the day before he started
back home , and the extreme hot
weather of last week may have
hastened his. death. Valentine
friends extend their sympathy ' to
the bereaved family. Mr. : King
was about 74 years of age. .
