Byerly, head of the demo cratic campaign committee, and who has cited the supreme court to 'give a decision on the validity of the passing of the'constitutional amendments as passed on by the state canvassing board was in the city last night on his way east. The new year was ushered in by the blowing of whistles and the ringing of church bells, and in several of the churches of the city watch night meetings were held to watch the old year die and welcome the new. Let us hope that 1919 will be a year of happiness and prosperity to all. Loring pierce arrived from over seas on Saturday, the 28th of Decem ber. He has fully recovered from a severe attack of "flu" contracted in England and is looking fine and his discharge marked excellent and his overseas service pin and gold service chevron certainly entitle him to just a little pride. We are all glad to see him back. Walter Montgomery returned to the city yesterday. He had been down south to Chattanooga, Tenn., and oth er places, stopping off at Chicago en route home. Robert. Clendenning, formerly of Wimbledon, but now one of the busi ness men of Fargo, was in the city last night and left this morning for points on the Soo line.

The war is over but he cannot seem to get his discharge. Station Agent J. J. Chamberlain re turned home on New Years day from Portland, Oregon, where he had been spending the Christmas holidays with his family. Mr. Chamberlain says he had a very pleasant'time and that the weather was the usual thing out there for this season of the year, wet occas ionally and he says he felt the chill about as bad as he does here when it is cold. We are glad to see him back on the job. Jimmy Collins, who has the job of switchman on the local N. P• yard crew, beat it out to Missoula, Mont., a few days ago in a hurry. J- J Chamberlain says he saw him at Mis soula and that he was trotting around with a very nice looking lady—just how J. J. knows about her good looks we don't know.

Chiatt recently returned from Winnipeg where he went on a matter of Business. Mr. Chiatt expects to re ceive a car load of fish in a day or two that he purchased while up there.

Wold is having a good time, not, at his home on Fourth avenue, his en tire family being sick with the flu and he is trying his hand at being cook, nurse and general utility man. See ing that Mr. Wold is a mighty good sales man we feel sure that he will make good in this other capacity. The family is improving, however, and in a few days will be around again. Mrs. Frank Ployhar came down with the flu last night and the senator is a busy man. One of his helpers at the gas plant has pneumonia, Supt. Bruce Cox is half sick, the heating plant in his office is on the bum, and Frank says it is—very cold—but he thinks matters will adjust themselves in a few days. In the meantime he is wondering if it will pay him to go to Bismarck and take his scat in the sen ate. Pius Stroh was down from Sanborn yesterday doing some shopping and looking after business matters. Mr. Stroh is one of the pioneer citizens of Sanborn and is able now to take things a little easier than he used to when he first settled in that section. Mr. Stroh expects to leave shortly for the south to spend some of the winter. He dropped in to see the editor yester day and pushed his subscription to the daily ahead. We ha"ve omitted for some time to make an item of a most important and interesting nature, because we ex pected those who were the most inter ested in the matter would either come in and tell us about it or send in some thing regarding the matter, however, they have not and we will give it as we hear it. It is that Mr. and Mrs. Frank Sanfovd some days ago sent to the local Red Cross committee at Val ley City a box of Florida grape fruit and oranges in token of appreciation of the good work done and accomplish ed by this committee. The gift ar rived just before Christmas and the contents of the box duly apportioned to those who were entitled to receive the same. The gift is duly appreciated by all those interested.

According to the telegraphic dis patches the 164th infantry of which the North Dakota boys area part, has been mentioned for early return to the United States by Gen. Pershing, and we expect ere long some of the boys from Valley City, and probably most of them will be on their way back home. This will be good news to those who have soldier boys over in France. Attorney Fred Fredrickson has rent ed the dffices formerly occupied by M. J. Englert on Fifth-avenue and will open a law office.

Curren, of this city, and Mrs. Elder, who was also with her mother at the time of hier death. The deceased was 78 years old and her death was caused by Bright's disease. She was a woman whom to know was to like, and while the editor did not know her personally, we are sure she was very much liked and re spected by a large circle of friends who regret to hear of the passing away of this good friend. From Monday's Daily Mrs. Thomas Cannon has so far re covered from the flu that she is up again and will be able to be out in a few days. This will be pleasing news to her many friends.

He missed No. 7 Saturday morning on account of the Soo being late and had to spend the day in the city. Dell Patterson has been well advertised in this state as he is the fellow who is alleged to have signed several letters in connection with the great nonpartisan league fight last June. The Straus Clothing Company is up against this flue proposition bad. Mr. Herman Stern has. been having sick ness in his home, the housekeeper and Miss Hazelgrove. his bookkeeper both being sick with the flu and no help to be got, then on top of all this Andrew Anfinson, the old reliable was taken sick and put out of commission and then to cap the climax, Ed Bloom, that prince of salesmen and pen artist, wanted to get in fashion so he up and took the fiu, so that the store has been disrupted, but Friend M. H. Dreyer was helping out this morning in a real neighborly way, and unless he and the general utility man fall victims to the flu the store will be kept open. The Times-Record hopes that all will speedily recover and get back on the job. THE WEEKLY TlME^RECORP, VALLEY CITY, NORTH DAKOTA The Times-Record received a visit Saturday afternoon from Congress* man Elect James H. Sinclair, of Ken mare, who after the fourth of next March will succeed Congressman P. D. Norton from the third district. Mr. Sinclair has been a personal friend of the Times-Record e'ditor for a great many years, and while we do not agree with him politically we feel that he will make the state a good congress man just the same. No cleaner cut man ever went to congress from North Dakota than J. H. Sinclair and he will do his work conscientiously and hon estly as he sees it. He has always been a democrat but was elected as a republican with the nonpartisan league endorsement. Anyway there are many things worse than being a democrat with the league endorse ment and we look to see Congressman Sinclair make a good record for him self. Unless the president calls an extra session of congress Mr. Sinclair will not really get into congress until the regular session next December. CHICHESTER S Pili£ Wjbs. (•in, TSfi? Hi HI it!
