Rev. M. L. Sauders preached an elo
quent and logical sermon on "The Evidence
of Things Not Seen" at the Methodist

beautiful thought, and also of that reason
ing which appeals to those individuals who
are of causal turn of mind. Dr. Horn's
congregation must certainly be pleased
with the pastor he secured to fill his pulpit
during his absence.

The Catholic Fnlr.
The Catholic fair hold during this week
in the opera house was the affair of the
season for popularity and success. Every
body, and above all the youngsters, vote It
to be "just the thing.'' Good fellowship,
good feeling and kindliness were tho domi
nating features. The hall looked its best
with the booths and other decorations so
tastefully arranged. The fancy table was
laden with beautiful and artistic needle
work and articles of silver and porcelain.
The candy and lemonade booths was very
much admired for its tasteful decorations
and tho the charming young ladies who
The supper served every evening by the
ladies was such as to eVoke encomiums
heartfelt and sincere for tho quality,
quantity and neat service. The. energy
and devotion displayed by everybody
working for the fair deserves particular
mention, and shows the reason for and
cause of its success. (
The hand painted vase was won by Mr.
Michael Elmore who drew the lucky num
ber 14. Many beautiful and useful articles
have already been raffled off. Tho list of
winners will be published next week.
The contest for the meerachum pipe and
the silver service are expected to bring in
quite a handsome sum. The last contest
will close at xz o'clock to-night, (Friday)
at which time the fair ends, One of tho
things, the raffling of which is awaited
with great anxiety is the large doll dress
ed as a beautiful bride, in a robe which is
a model of art and fashion, Everybody
admires it and covets it almost guiltily.
The fair of 1902 will long be remember
ed by all those who participated in it as
one of the happy timas of their lives and
it is to be hoped it has served somewhat to
break tho chill barriers that somtlmes
exist between people living in our youth
ful and flourishing city.

Expression of Thanks for Favor., '
Alliance, Neb., October 31, 1902,
To The Editor Herald.
Dear Sir: Though the medium of your
paper I wish to convey my grateful ap
preciation, on behalf of the Catholic
Church of Alliance, to the merchants and
citizens of Alliance for tho many favors
and patronage they have shown us during
the fair which has been so successfully
carried on this week
Bernard F. Gavlin,
Dr. Horn's last week's letter is concluded
in this issue. Today we received a very
interesting thirty page letter written from
San Francisco but on account of the extra
work and rush incident to election we shall
not be able to publish any part of it till
next week. In a letter to the editor Dr.
Horn says: I leave hero to night Octo
ber 27 for Portland, Seattle and Van
couver. Will write from Vancouver next
Saturday. I leave Vancouver on tho
"Empress Japan," Monday, November 3.
The management not only gave me free
transportation to Vancouver but presented
me with sleeper free for the two nights.
My letter from Vancouver will be short so
you divide this letter up as you see fit be
cause I cannot get a letter back from
Yokohomaearlier than first week in Decem
ber." We are pleased to note the fyvors
that are being extended to Dr, Horn which
is evidence that his friends at home are
not the only ones who have confidence in
him and we know that he will be extended
special favors on his entire trip. Shortly
before his departure from Alliance the
doctor sent one of the Herald's "Around
the World" posters toA C. Shaw, General
Passenger Agent, Chicago, with whom he
was negotiating for transportation of the
second-class. Mr. Shaw immediately sent
Dr. Horn first-class passage free, stating
in his letter that he desired him to have
the very best at the company's disposal
and he would see that Dr. Horn was ex
tended every courtesy by (he company's
agents on his trip. This first-class ticket
would have cost Dr. Horn upwards of
$(50,00 extra. Mr, Shaw also advised Dr.
Horn that he desired every issue of the
Alliance Herald as he would take great
interest in his letters.
