AROUND THE WORLD.
Rev. Dr. P.. C. Horn Soon toStnrt
Ills Tour of the Earth.
Residents of tho city of Alliance are
pretty generally familiar with tho pro
posed tour around the world of Rev.
Dr. E. C. Horn, pastor of tho M. E.
church of this city. It has been in
contemplation and freely talked of for
tho past three or four months. Tho
reverend gentleman has conceived the
idea of writing a weekly letter during
his ramblings, in order that nta friends
may keep step with him from the day
of his depariutc until the hour of his
return. That these letters will prove
of intense interest there is no room to
doubt, and that the Herald has been
chosen as the medium through which
these letters will bo disseminated will
be gratifying intelligence to its renders.
Rev. Dr. Horn is among the most
able and polished wt iters in the state,
and as his around the world tour will
embrace the most noteworthy points of
interest on record, those who arc for
tunate enough to rend his articles will
receive an introduction to tho world's
history, geography and customs ap
proaching a liberal education in value
and interest. Having been nn instructor1
in two universities and having gradu
ated from three, securing tho Ph. D.
degree only a year ugo, it will be seen
at a glance that Rev. Dr. Horn is
abundantly equipped to write enter
tainingly. His descriptive powers are
of the very keenest.
Following is a brief outline of the
itinerary as planned, subject to slight
changes, however, on account of the
possible imposition of quarantine at
certain points in tho Orient. The
journey will be ever westward toward
the land of the setting sun :
Boarding one of the new, twin screw,
steel ocean liners of the Japan-American
Royal Mail Line, the broad Pacific
will be traversed, reaching Yokohoma,
Japan, from which a side trip to the
empire's capital, Tokio, will bo made;
also to Kobe and Nagasaki, tho latter
having one of the best harbors in
Leaving this land of chrysanthe
mums, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manila,
Singapore, Ceylon and India will bo
visited enroute to Egypt nfld Pales
tine. A thirty-day tour through the
Holy Land is scheduled, including
Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, He
bron, Bethany, Dead Sea, Jordon,
Bethel, Samoria, Sea of Galilee, Naza
reth, Damascus, Baalbec, etc., together
with Cairo, Alexandria, Athens, Cor
inth, Naples, Rome, Florence, Venice,
Milan, Como, St. Gathard, Lucerne,
Paris, Heidelberg, Mayence, steamers
on Rhine to Cologne, thenco to Brus
sels, Antwerp, London, Edinburgh,
Glasgow and Liverpool, where the
Atlantic voyage will begin via the
White Star line.
It is needless to say that the Her
akd has not secured the exclusive right
to publish tho letters of Dr. Horn
without an outlay of a considerable
sum the largest ever paid by a county
seat weekly newspaper in the west for
a similar service. There were others
working every wire using every influ
ence that could be brought to bear to
secure them. But the Herald, as is
its custom, appreciating the worth of
such a globe-encircling correspondent
especially one of such unimpeacha
ble integrity of character and ability as
a descriptive writer secured the prize
by paying the highest prico for it. And
now, then, let ua see how ninny of the
citizens of Alliance and surrounding
country appreciate an enterprising
newspaper. If you want to keep pace
with this distinguished citizen of Box
Butto in his sight-seeing around the
earth, it behooves you to subscribe for
the Herald. Dr. Horn is to take his
departure from Alliance Monday, Oc.
tobcr 8, barring accidents.
At the Methodist Episcopal church,
Sunday, September 28, the Sunday school

church edifice will be completed within
five days so that the dedicatory services
can be held in the auditorium, Sunday,
October 5. No one will be permitted to
rent any pews as the pastor announces
that no pews will be rented at any price.
Everyone is invited to every service.

The report of the First State Bank of
Hemingford appears in this issue. Before
the change of ownership of this bank a
year ago its business had dwindled down
to almost nothing simply because the peo

present management confidence iu the
concern was restored and its business has
increased so steadily that it now makes a
very creditable showing.
