Charley Logan and sister of

the guests of G. E. Tracewell l and
Mrs. Wade returns today to her
home in Indiana after a four weeks
visit here with her daughter and
' Y. T. Kincaid is visiting rela-
tives at Henry , 111. , the past week
and expects to bring his son Hick-
man home with him. .

man precinct vote which went
democratic awlvet for governor
and dry for U. S. Senator.
Miss Marie Leach accompanied
I her father to Rosebud this morn-
ing i after a two weeks enjoyable
visit with friends in Valentine . and
A severe hail storm hit the can-
yon Sunday evening. A little of
the icy substance fell in this ! locali
ty but not enough to inflict dam-
age to vegetation.
Uncle Henry Carter came down
from Cody last Saturday and
stayed a couple of days visiting
friends. He's in his 88th year :
and is looking pretty well.
Claude Ralya who has been em-
ployed ] at the Chapman drug em-
porium during the summer , has
gone home for a two weeks visit
before going to Omaha to take up
studies at Creighton university. .
Vl m. Kelley is going a"bout with
a limp and a cane , the result of
overexertion wl en pitting his
strength in a friendly contest
against Will Morrissey , They
were tugging at a stick and in the
contest for supremacy the former
strained his back.
Occupants of the Home Bakery
had a fright Monday evening and
hustled oat of the store room in a .
jiffy j when the gasoline tank of the
coffee urn sprung a leak , became I
nveloped flames and threatened
to explode. Presence of mind on
the part of the attendant , who
quickly removed the cause , pre
vented perhaps a disastrous fire.
T. C. Eastman of KanashaWis. ,
an electrician , arrived in town last
week to assist in the work of the
new light and power plant , having I
come here from Gordon where he . :
made an extended visit with his
uncle , J. E. Fuller. The work of
placing poles and anchoring same
for the new system has been pro-
gressing nicely , and good head way :
is also being made with the work 1
at the dam. j
Rev. J3aker of the M. E. church
ompleted his work here Sunday j
and departed Tuesday for Red
Oak , Iowa , where Mrs. Baker has
been visiting her parents the past
three weeks. He will stay there a
few weeks to visit and attend the
chautauqua before leaving for new .
fields of labor in Missionary work
in Idaho. Mr. and Mrs. Baker
lave many friends in Valentine i
and the hearty well wishes of all
go with them.
While Will Smith and Ed. 1
Perry were taking a spin recentb I
1 y in the form r's auto west of
town. both were unceremoniously
spilled in the dust but escaped ii i
without serious consequences.
They were approaching a steep | v
hill and extra power was put on 1
when suddenly the machine tried
a loop the ' loop stunt , turning tur
tle. A peculiar freak < < ; of the occur-
rence was that the occupants were .
both sent flying from the auto on
opposite sides , leap-frog fashion.
A kindly disposed passer by pick-
ed up the boys and brought them d
to town , towing the injured auto
n the rear.
Squaw Kosb.Iallah was found
dead Tuesday morning beside one
of the beer vaults south of the rail-
road tracks where it is presumed
she withdrew with her companion ,
Fourfeathers , for a snooze after
partaking too copiously of fire e
water. Death was due to heart
failure. When discovered the two
were apparently in a sound sleep ,
and when Fourfeathers was awak-
ened and came to a realization of I s
what had happened he seemed e
deeply concerned that she had left ,
him so abruptly for the happy i
hunting grounds. The couple were r
observed on the streets about six t
o'clock that morning and she was 1
seen to stagger as if drunk. Later i 1
in the day she had offered mocca- ! t
ins" for sale. The remains were .1 e
taken to the mission for burial. t
Judge : Dean was in our city last
Saturday looking after his politi
John Shelbourn brought in the

City and other eastern _ points ,

Dahlman and Christensen 14 to 1.
Mrs. Terbert , a sister of Henry
and Martin Beckerand her daugh-
ter , arrived here last week for a
visit. They had been visiting an- .
other brother in Minnesota. Their
home is in Ohio.
S. F. : Gilman and daughter and
son-in-law , Judge Ballinger and
party , of Davenport , la. , came in
overland from Neligh in autos
Tuesday and expect to have a
vacation here fishing.
Deputy Treasurer Chas. Swan-
son returned Monday evening
from a two weeks vacation with
the folks at home near Gordon
and a trip to Omaha and other
points in the east part of the state.
Frank Grooms , who suffered
three broken ribs and other inJur-
ies from a fall about two weeks
ago , is mending nicely and will
soon be able to navigate without
the aid of a cane. He expects to
rqake a trip into the country some .
time next week and put up a num-
ber of signs for a local firm.
The crack of the gun in the dis
tant fields these mornings reminds
us that the prairie chicken crop is
now ripe and ready to be bagged.
No sport is more tempting to the
average nimrod than chicken hunt-
ing and some of the more enthus
iastic ones have been out recently
sizing up the prospects for this
season's fun and say they are un-
Sunday's ball game between
Ainsworth and Valentine attracted
an unusual large number of fans
to the South Side ball park in an
ticipation of something out of the
ordinary : in baseball exhibition ,
but it proved a rather tame affair ,
in fact too one-sided to arouse a
little ; bit of enthusiasm. The vis
itors presented a formidable ap
pearance and looked real nobby in
their uniforms of blue , but it was
all show. The only score credited
to them was made by Wilson and
he was permitted to circle the
bags through an error that looked
like ; a costly one for a little while.
but - all fear of further humiliation
quickly faded. McCoy's offerings
were a pudding and the way our
boys flouted the sphere was a
shame ; , while Cay lor for the locals
was a puzzle to the visitors , hand-
ng out something that resembled
slippery lightning. 7 to 1 is the
way ; the game ended. Batteries ,
McCoy \ and Adams ; Caylor and
Cox. : Umpire , Grimes. -
Master Verne , 5-year-old son of
Howard : Laypurt , had a narrow
escape with his life Tuesday morn-
ing , while doing some childish
stunts ; in imitation perhaps of older
boys. He had scaled a small lad-
der placed against the east side of
the , house and was clinging to some
vines when the latter gave way un-
der the weight and precipitated his
little body to the board walk be-
low. He struck the walk on his head
and . stomach , rendering uncon
sciousnessand was quite limp when
picked up by the frightened moth-
er who quickly summoned medical = :
aid. The lad was revived before
the doctor came , It need hardly
be > added that there were some
happy parents on west Catherine
street when the doctor found upon
examination that the lad's ] bones
were still all intact and that no
internal injuries resulted. This
mishap should be an object lesson
to other youngsters of the neigh-
borhood who are wont to climb ,
but we all did the same thing when
tots. Its by such ticklish experi- ,
ences : as Verne had that we learn ] I
to maintain our equilibrium. a
