$1,000 coursing match Chadron had
worked up against Valentine ? Our

having a grand New Year's hunt and
find out which town owns the best

The "Valentine Turkey Club' ' held
an interesting session one da3' recent
ly , five members being present. At
the close of the meeting we are told
one member was the proud possessor
of six fine turke3's for Christmas , 'one
had four and another three , while
two forlorn members did not even get
an invitation to eat dinner or stand
at the window and smell the savory
birds as they are carved next Sunda3' .
The F. . E. & M. V. ice gang have
up to date put up 30. ) cars of ice taken
from the placid bosom of Lake Min-
nechaduza. The ice averaged 1(5 (
inches in thickness , and was of the
first qualit3r. They intend leaving
the car chute and spur track until
next 3ear , and are figuring on haul
ing the ice to the top of the hill on an
endless belt next season. As a sample
of what they did this year , 48 men
and 18 teams cut and loaded 3o cars.

It seems to be definitely settled
now that the fast mail west from
Chicago will arrive in Omaha after
the first of the 3Tear at about 8 o'clock
in the morning instead of three
o'clock in the afternoon. If this
change is made , the Klkhorn will of
necessit3' leave Omaha in the morn
ing instead of the afternoon as at
present. Suppose the Elkhorn Black
Hills train leaves Omaha at 8:30 : a. m. ,
the train will arrive in Valentine at
(5 ( p. m. . running at the same rate of
speed it now does. This will be a
great boon to all of the northwest.

Once in a while we hear a kicker
who cusses the grain market at this
place , but we are happy to say that
these kickers are few in number. The
mill here pa3's from ; " > to 10 cents
more for wheat than any other place
in the state , and 3 to 5 cents more for
corn. Corn is now worth 21 cents in
Valentine , and in the eastern part of
the state it brings but 20 cents. The
price of oats is about as much higher
than other points. We recentl3r
heard an amusing stor3r which shows
how the kickers fare. Three men not
a thousand miles away came to town
earl3' in tl e season and asked what
could for wheat. '

cents was offered , and refused. The
three loaded a car and shipped to a
commission firm. After waiting for
more than thirt3r da3rs returns were
received , and their wheat netted
them just 30 cents per bushel. Far

prices here are invariabh * higher
