What Alliance jnay accomplish during
the coming year rests entirely with her cit
izens. If they will it Alliance can accom
plish a vast amount; If they do not will it
to be so, Alliance will accomplish very lit
tle. A city is just what its citizens make
Alliance enjoys peculiar advantages. It
is the largest city between Grand I? ' md
and the Black Hills, a distance of nearly
500 miles. It is the center of a vast ex
panse of country rich in possibilities and
growing rapidly in wealth and popula.'on.
It has superior railroad facilities and i the
natural supply point for an immense -erri-tory,
There Is no reason why Alliance
should not be( the wholesate distributing
point for hundreds of miles to the north,
south and west.
If Alliance citizens will do theic whole
duty by their city a state normal school
may be secured, and such an institution
would be bf great benefit to the city. But
such things do not come unsolicited to a
town. They must be worked for intell'
gently and earnestly.
The Herald is confident that the fu
ture of Alliante is bright with promise.
Whether promise shall result in fruition
depends wholly upon Alliance citizens.
This being true, jet every man, woman
and child begin the New Year by talking
for Alliance, working for Alliance and
planning for Alliance.

Poor Effort at Translation.

been having fun with a new German-

Baffling Mystery Cleared.

twelve-month the first offering of a
