The characters in The Missouri Girl,
which comes to Alliance January 2, are
in especially capable hands. The players
who interpret them have all made records
in other plays and are well established fa
vorites. It is seldom, in fact, that a play
has so many well linown people in it. All
are happily placed in their respective roles,
consequently there is not a weak spot in
the entire production.

Mrs. B. H. Perry, wife of this popular
passenger conductor, subscribed for The
Herald, - a short time ago and yesterday
called to give another year's subscription
to be sent to a relative as a Christmas pres
ent, making a gift by which the receiver
will be reminded fifty-two times of the re
gard and thoughtfulness of the giver.
Mrs. Perry is greatly interested in Rev.
Dr. Horn's letters and like hundreds of
others is eager to get the paper every week.

(From The McCook Tribune.)
"Alliance now reminds us of McCook fifteen years ago, in the matter
oUts advertising by its business men. One of the Alliance papers, last
week, contained twenty-eight columns of advertisements, and the two
other papers in the city were equally well represented in that line.
Both of the McCook papers, last week, did not contain more than The
Alliance Heralp alone. The Tribune now averages about one-half
of the advertising space that the merchants of fifteen years ago occu
pied. And the population is hundreds and hundreds greater than it was
then. It's true, but it isn't business."
Correct you are, Bro. Kimmell. And we want to say right here that
in your excellent paper the people of McCook have more to be proud of
than The Tribune has of the patronage received from its business men.
Alliance is the leading city of its size in the state and she is not discred
ited by her newspapers, When an Alliance man visits Omatui or Den
ver he is not ashamed to register from Alliance. Her business men are
live, up-to-date, enterprising and consequently successful. They carry
such a quality of goods and sell at prices that they are Mot afraid to ad
vertise. They reach out for business and dfaw it from a long distance.
They know the value of printer's ink as every successful business man
the world over knows. Get a good stiff brush and rub the barnacles off
your business men down there, Bro. Kimmell.

The Redfern Gold Mining and Milling
Company is the name of a corporation re
cently organized to operate n largo proper
ty near Redfern, in Pennington county.
This company's ground is situated in one
of the most promising gold belts in the
Southern Hills and with the practical men
who constitute the board of directors they
propose to go about it in. the right way to
make a mine. This district became fa
mous in what is locally known as the days
of old Tigcrville, when rich placer dig
gigi were worked for several years until
all the gulches were worked out, when the
attention of the miners was given to quartz
mining. The ledges that the Redfern
Company propose to develop are on the di
vide between Newton Fork and Slafe creek
and Pound gulch, Moon Spring gulch, and
the Newton Fork diggings undoubtedly de
rived the placer gold from the quart ledg
es of the divide, The officers of the com
pany are John Croft, president; O. Modi
on, vice president; A. G. Stephens, secre
tary and general manager; James McDon
ald, treasurer. The directors aret J,
Drannan, engineer HomestakQ; R. E,
Hawley, foreman cyanide plant, Home'
stake; James McDonald, engineer Horse
shoe Company; H. McClellan, passenger
conductor B. & M.J Robert C, Hayes, of
Deadwood, attorney. A, G, Stephens, M,
E., Lead, and "Sam Pascoe, foreman Gold
en Reward. The company has n force of
men nt work and will proceed to develop
its valuable holdings-with all expedition.
Hill Citv, S. D Drc ta,
Mr. H. McClellan,
Dear Sir: In accordance with your let
ter of the 6th Inst. 1 have examined your
property, the Redfern Gold Mining and
Milling Co., near Redfern station, and thd
accompanying report shows values obtained
in gold on samples taken from the grass
roots and Bear surface of ground run from
it. 20 to $4.16.
The property is well located, being near
the center of the Tigerville gold belt. This
belt shows ledges and prospects two miles
north and two mils south of your raises
and the ore bodies are immense in size be
ing at the point where taken about too feet
in width md also open cut atoag the vein
or at. least too feet. Enough" Pre' Win
sight to keep a ten or tweaty-irtamp mill
busy, and with a little mem develepmest
a supply of ore coals' be obtained to. keep
amuch larger milt running- steady. In
'taking my samples I aimed to get lowest
values. By taking everything along and
across the ledge at the surface it shows
that everything carries values, and ores in
this section show greater values as depth
is attained, and there are streaks in this
ledge that carry immense values, as high
as $900 per ton. The ore is of such a
character that it could be mined at the
minimum cost per ton, Timber and wa
ter is in abundance. ' It is unquestionably
a matter of putting in and enlarging your
machine capacity, opening up more of the
mine, which will make it a good, sound
dividend payer. You need a hoist sinking
on the ledge for development, and enlarge
your stamp mill to correspond, There is
an Inexhaustible supply of ore in sight to
keep you running steady, and your pros
pects are certainly one of the best, there
isjn the Southern Hills.

Couldn't Stand Mox Iluttc Air.
Colonel James A. George returned from
a few days professional visit to Alliance on
last night's Burlington, and says while at
the hotel in that Nebraska town one of his
ears was badly frost bitten in bed during
the night. He further stated that Tom
Edward's blood wasn't in, it with the low
temperature of the Alliance hotel during
December. Deadwood Independent.
That's easily accounted for. During Col.
George's visit in this city he was a guest
at several functions and one night he re
tired at an early hour overlooking the fact
that the window in his room was wide
open, The colonel's blood "wasn't fn it"
with Box Butte's pure fresh air.
A New Kind of Front.
A new plate glass was put in E. C. Mc
Clure's front Tuesday in place of the one
broken several weeks ago, Grip.
That's all right. Mr. McClure probably
desires to break the monotony. Brass
fronts are too common.
A bowling contest was held at Ridgell's
alley Wednesday evening in which the

Gilman, 881; Waples, 879; Zbinden, 814;

between the barbers and operators of the
city will be held there tonight.
