John Neiss , who is engaged in the stock business on the reservation , was transacting business and vbiting with friends in town the fore part of the week. TJ. G.

The ladies of the Presbyterian church contemplate giving a High Tea on Saturday evening Feb. 22nd. More particulars will be given next week. Reserve that evening for the supper as it will be worth going to. Judge W. H. Westovercameup last Thursday evening on 27 from A ins- worth where he had been holding a short session of court , and on Friday held a special session in the Cherry Co. court house and granted J. W. Smyser a divorce from Edna Smyser. There was some shooting in town a few nights ago when some of the boys got bowled up a little. We think there were some pretty badly scared people in town about the time the popping began , especially those near est the bullets. It began with a noisy crowd and ended with a rough house. flW. D , Morgareidge one of the old pioneers -Cherry County came to town Monday and closed a deal for the Beers and Clark land near him and will now have a good ranch of 1600 acres. On this Mr. Morgareidge can cut about 500 tons of hay and can run a thousand head of cattle on his range which is mostly fenced. Mr. M has lived in Cherry Co. since the spring of ' 84 and is as well known as most any of Cherry Co. citizens , and now that he has a good ranch and has built up a nice home for his family he is ready to leave it and contemplates moving to town in the near future where he can further enjoy the fruits of his labors in the years when it was a hardship to live in a western fron tier. We bid this family welcome to our fair city and commend them to our citizens as worthy people of which any town or community might justly feel nroud. Mr. Morgareidge is still a democrat and proud tfi tb& same. Andrew Schalzthauer runs a livery stable and buys and sells horses. Elden Sparks spent Sunday with his family and returned Monday to Cody on 25. Miss Ada Anderson visited friends at Longpine several days last week , returning home Monday. < t Mr. Redfern came in with a load of hay Tuesday and took back some sup plies to his place near Simeon , yes terday. David D. Dunn of Britt was in town yesterday and called to have us put his name on our list for a year to * the VALENTINE DEMOCRAT. Wm. Franche and Henry Ballard went out on a wolf chase yesterday afternoon. We didn't hear how many wolv es or coyotes they got. Monday , Geo. Elliott began moving his mammoth stock of drugs and toilet articles into the new building just completed by Frank Brayton under the Fraternal hall building. The room is much more spacious than where Mr. Elliott was previously and there will be room for lots of custom ers and plenty of room for goods gen erally found in a drug store. Harry Hilsinger , R. S. Dennis and Geo. Hershey went out to theirihome- steads last Sunday. They're a jolly crew and undoubtedly enjoyed ranch life and getting away from the city's noisy din for a few days at home on a ranch. Tney didn't brin ' the editor in any spuds , turnips , cabbage or beets from last years crop , nor did they bring a sample from the hen roost to jolly the editor with. We like the good old fashioned farmers who has a cellar full of good things to dish up and a Jat hen for a Sunday dinner. . , .

A Small Fire Yesterday forenoon while Pete Sim ons was driving past the livery stable of Stnyser and Hammond he noticed smoke coming out of the office in the south east corner and also some com ing out near the roof. Stopping bis team Mr. Simons took a hammer and tried to knock off the boards on the out side of the barn but soon discovered that he could get to the fire better on the inside which was burning between the laths acd the Weather boarding having caught from the stove which was near by. Mr. Smyser was in his dwelling near by and hearing the ham mering of Mr. Simons ran out and soon had the tire put out which hadn't burned very long and did very little damage. As is usual in such cases there was no one about or there would not have been a story. The stove was full of ; coal that apparently wouldn't burn when it was needed and when it got started there was no one to shut off the draft. AA jf Educational Department.
