During the last two months about three bandied new names have been enrolled on Tint Hi:kau list, which pushes its ciiculntion up to the 1,200 matk newly as much as nil other Alliance papois combined. But we'ie not satisfied. We want to make it 1,500 and if people only knew what they'io missing we would have 300 more new subscriptions inside thii ty days. The following letters show what hueicsling loading matter, outside of local and state news, they're missing. Besides this, we desire to tomind you that Tun Hnvi.n is the official paper of the county and the one in which alljofficial notices ate pub lished. It is also generally known thai Tint IIkkald nlways gets the "cieani of the news prints ttycrything that's worth printing and whenever anything speeffd is in sight no other papor in the county can overreach TTlr. IIiikAi.u. Thorefore Hkkald readers can always depend on gotting the boat. Captain W. R. Akers of this city slays; , " I have read the lettor of Dr. HJrn dated November 24, fiom Tokyo, Japan, and I am free to say that this lettor contains more of interest, to me at least, and I believe to the general pub lic, than any letter I have ever read written by n foreign traveler. Most of these foreign letters arc filled with generalities while Dr. Horn gives the details 'of life and habits of the people and at the same time gives enough goneialities to make his sub ject instructive and attractive." Attorney J. E. Porter of Crnwfoid, speaking of R(v. Dr. Horn's letters, says:. "I am very much interested in those letters. I heard n course of "lectures delivered by General Bailey on China and I consider Dr. Horn able to tell more of the habits and customs of the orient in one letter than General Bailey imparted in his whole course of interesting lectures. His descriptions arc the most concise, condensed and interesting I have ever read. Dr. Horn's perceptive faculties and descriptive powers are certainly remarkable. Swear Off Now.

If at home you have been growling; If at wife and babies scowling; . i nlhanUudf afcrayahowling, Swear off now. w. M. M. Glad to Get The Herald. Under date of December 29th Hon. C. F. Coffee, the Chadron banker, and one of the best known stockmen in the west, writes The Herald in regard to his sub scription. He says; "The Herald is all right and am glad to get it every week. I like the stand you have taken in rdgard to the stock interests. If this was a farming country you would be justified in taking the opposite course: souie of our papers are hurting themselves by their idiotic ideas. Hope you will con tinue to publish as good a paper," Christmas Wedding IJclls.

The ball givon by Hard Struggle lodge No. 642, Brotherhood of Railway Train men in the opera house New Year's eve was one of the most enjoyable affairs ever given in Alliance It was largely attended, nearly four hundred tickets being sold.

Triplett and Other Alllnnce Men Visit Kcdfcrn Mine Arc Pleased With the rintterlnR. Prospects. On December 27, ioo2,.in company with Dr. Allen, C.E. Pierce and A.G. Stevens I madea trip to the Black Hills to inspect the group of mines belonging to the Redfern Gold Mining and Milling company. Mr. Stevens, the principal promoter, has been at work here Is Alliance for some time, has laid his plans before a number of our citizens and his representations are fully yerified.by the appearance of the property and, by a test in panning: also by an assay made by Henry Schnitzel at Lead on ore I took, to.hijn on December 29, showing the gold to run 10.80 to a ton of. ore. We found the "property was well tim bered and the water supply iljr sufficient to operate a mill of much greater capacity than will be needed; We also found that there has been enough work done on the property, to -satisfy almost anyone that there is plenty of ore near the surface to last for many years, as a clearly defined ledge is. in sight. The machinery at present consists of a -jo-horse power engine and boiler and five stamps with pump fixtures sufficient to run the water about 150 feet from the stream to the mill. We were satisfied that Mr. Stevens had not over estimated it in any particular. After the day had been spent at the mines, Dr. Allen and Mr, Pierce returned and I went to Lead and Deadwood to make the acquaintance of the officers atd incorporators. I found them to be inter esting gentlemen to meet, three of them being in the employ of the Homestake Co. at the big cyanide plant. They are men of ability, judging by the positions they hold, and have earned their reputations by giving from nine to eleven years' service with the company. I do not mean to convey the idea that I am a judge of mines, ores or their treat ment and development, but from general observation and the tests I made I am satisfied there is a good opportunity to in vest safely, as there are thoroughly com petent men among the stockholders to place the mine on a paying basis as soon as they liao reasonable time to do so. I will not attempt to descrioe many things that might be of importance that came un der our observation but hope this article will give a fair idea of the most important topic. I have been asked by a number of citi zens about samplus. I will say I have not made any display of them as I do not wish to excite any one or have them get the impression that there is a big fortune in sight in a short time. Respectfully, A. TrU'LKTT. Curd of Thanks. We extend our thanks to the kind neighbors and friends who so kindly assist ed us during the serious illness and death of our beloved husband and father, also those who contributed the lovely flowers.

Among those who received New Year's wort', Misses Sweeney and Smith, Bnrt, Frew, Morris, Phetan, Mosdamos Krae mer, Broome, Reardon, Mollring and Harris. Did you ever stop to consider that out siders usually judge a town by its newspa pers? For instance Alliance is one of tho best known towns In the state and one does not have to go far to discover tho cause. A recent issue of one of her pa pers contained 28 columns ,pf advertising. Compare that with the papers of her nat ural rival, Chadron, and you will under stand why people know a great deal of Al liance who never heard of Chadron, Chadronian.

He says: "The fence question is settled for this win ter at least, and, in a way, for the future as well. It is understood that the matter" will be allowed to rest until a land-leasing I ,aw can be passed, which will very likely !,?.,. . be in the near future. Such a law will restrict the cattlemen to a certain extent while not imposing any unnecessary hard ships, such as tearing down their fences would do. Besides, this is a bad time of the year to begin tearing down fences, any way." Colonel Mosby is in Washington now and Senator Millard thinks that he will be eliminated from the question by an appointment elsewhere. 1 What's Your Number.'
