C. E. Clough, of Alliance came in this
morning with two loads of cows of his own
breeeding and raising that sold at $4,05.
Mr. Clough raises good grade cattle and
finds that it pays. He has one herd of
Folled-Angus stock which he keeps in a
separate pasture and a big herd of Short
horn and Hereford mixed. Mr. Clough
thinks that the Short-horn and Hereford
cross is about as good an animal as can be
obtained for range purposes. The White
faces are the best rustlers and the Short
horns acquire weight. Practically every
one who has tried this combination has
found it satisfactory. South Omaha

TWO WRECKS ON llURLINGTON.
Passenger and Freight at Broken How nnd
Freights nt .Mullen Collide Sunday.
Sunday was rather an unfortunate day
for the Burlington, two wrecks, one at
Broken Bow and the other at Mullen, oc-
curihg on that day. The wreck at Broken
Bow happened about six o'clock in the
morning when the west bound passenger,
No. 41, and westbound freight, No, 47,
crashed into each other. The castastrophe
seems to have been duo to tho freight's
switching without having a flagman out.
A negro, Preston H. Higgins, who was
riding next the tender, was killed instantly.'
He was apparently about forty years old.
Two ladies on No. 41, were slightly injured,
also, and Fireman Charles Tubbs on
No, 47, was badly scalded nnd was taken
at once to tho Broken Bow hospital for
treatment. Tho engine drawing No. 41
was damaged too badly for use and a
freight car between the two engines was
smashed. The accident caused about
four hours delay. No. 41 was in charge of
Conductor Zollinger and Engineer Nolan,
Frank Hartson was engineer on No. 47.
Sunday afternoon at Mullen a head end
collision of two freight trains occurred,
the engines being telescoped and twelvo
cars of cattle being demolished. No lives
were lost, both crews seeing the crash that
was coming and jumping from the engines.
The trains came together with terrible,
forco. The tender of one of the engines
was thrown twenty-five feet high and such'
a mass of debris was heaped on the track
that it was several hours before it was
cleared for travel, although the whole
wrecking outfit was sent from hereto as-
sist in removing it.
.Money Will Not IJuy It All.
Money can buy many things, Wo admit.
It can buy place and power. It can cor
rupt courts and juries, it can oppress the,
weak and uphold the strong, it can bo the
means of enabling the rich to hold certain
places; but its purchasing power has a
limit, It cannot buy everything. It can
not buy an honest man, be he judge, juror
or hod carrier. It cannot buy a place that
will make an unworthy man honorable.
It may oppress the weak, but it cannot buy
tho wealth of ' virtue. It may purchase a
pew in a wealthy, church, but U "cannot
purchase a guiltless conseincc. It cannot
secure for broken hearts and sinful souls
the only balm that will soothe. It cannot
win the heart's affection of any woman or
child, it cannot buy a happy home, it can
not buy the dearest thing that life holds;
nor can it bribe death or buy a mansion in
heaven for the soul's eternal dwelling. No,
Nol Money cannot buy every thing. Be
not deceived . Do not make its pursuit the
chief end of life. That course leads to
worry and sorrow and disappointment
here and untold misery in the life to come.
Tho play, "Railroad Jack," given at the
opera house last Monday evening, was en
joyed very much by those who attended.
The play in it self was pretty fair and it
made an excellent setting for vaudeville
work, in which the company excels. The
house was not much more than half filled,
principally because a great many did not
know it was to be given that night. It
had been advertised for Wednesday night,
but the company gave up other dates,
thinking to catch the circus crowd here,
which they doubtless would have done had
the play been well advertised for that
People's Independent Representative Con
vention. The People's Independent electors of the

Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Rockcy and son
Emil and Mrs. C. W. Roberts, drove down
from Hemingford yesterday and did some
trading with our merchants. Mr. and
Mrs. Rockey expect to leave next Monday
for Claysvillc, Pa., to attend a family re
union. They will be gone a month.
It now behooves all mothers of boys to
keep a close watch upon their sons until
the attack of imitation the circus has in
oculated them with wears off. A padded
cell with no furnishings would be the
safest plaee for the average boy for three
months after attending one.
We make no attempt to mention the
names of those who were here from neigh
boring towns Monday. The task would
be too great. In fact, it would be far
easier to publish the names of those- who
stayed at home, as nearly everybody In
the country was here that day.
Judge Wes(over stopped in Alliance
Monday to "see the elephants." Tho
Judge had just returned home from Lin
coln Saturday when he received a message
that his son was ill at Mullen. He drove
across the country to Alliance arriving in
time to catch No. 42. The boy's condition
was not at all serious.
Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Young give a party
at their home this evening in honor of
their son, Fred, who leaves for Lincoln
tomorrow night to attend the State univer
sity the coming year. Ralph Smith and
Thomas Tillotson also leave for the same
place and purpose tomorrow evening.
CIRCUS DAY CAME.
And "Tho World and His Wife" Came Also
to See tho lllg Show.
Monday probably saw the biggest crowd
of people in Alliance that has ever been
here. It is estimated that there were
about 10,000 people in the city on that
day. Very low excursion rates were made
from all points on roads into this city and
every train arriving during the night and
Monday morning brought in crowds of
people. It was a holiday for all this sec
tion of country. Everybody had a good
time and seemed to desire that everybody
else should do likewise. It was an order
ly, good natured crowd, No special police
were appointed nor special regulations
made and only one arrest was made, that
being for disorderly conduct, and the of
fender was a stranger.
The show was all that the management
promised, too. Everything was given just
as they had -advertised and we "guess"
their claim to be the greatest show on
earth is well founded, perhaps abolutely
true. At any rate, all seemed to feel that
they got their money's worth, The show
is reported to have taken in about $7200,
which was not a very good day's business
for them, as their expenses are about $5000
daily and they also are obliged to make
enough during the show season to keep
them during the season of inactivity.
During the the time for the performance
in the afternoon all the business houses
were closed that everyone might attend.
Alliance merchants all report doing a good
business that day.

In the month of August sixty-two sol
diers' widows' applications for homesteads
were filed at the Alliance land office.
Forty-five of these alleged ' widows give
their residence at Gordon in Sheridan
county. Last weeks' issue of the Gordon
Journal states that another consignment of
widows arrived there that week to file on
homesteads. It looks to us as if Gordon
is going to have more than her fair share
of widows more than she can possibly
expect to supply with husbands. We
don't quite see what inducements she held
out in order to get them there, nor how
she is going manage taking care of them,
but perhaps she does.

consumption after an . illness of several
weeks. His father, H. C. Kennedy, died
