It coming to our knowledge that parties
being infected with scarlet fever, have, in
order to avoid quarintine, concealed the
fact, thereby scattering the disease and
"endangering life, we deem it necessary to
give this notice and say from this time on
the law will be enforced to the letter. The
fine in such cases is from Sioo to $200.
Aayone found covering up a contagious
disease without reporting same to health
officer or family physici an will be subject
to a fine. A special policeman will look
.after this matter in the future.

Rev. Dr. Horn returned to Alliance
Thursday from his tour nrouud the world.
He was accompanied home by Mrs. Horn
and son who met him at Columbus, Ohio,
where they have been visiting for several
weeks. Dr. Horn is the picture of health
and tells us that he has missed only one
meal during his absence from Alliance
and that was during a storm at sea. He
left here October 16th last and has travel
ed thirty thousand miles. He met with no
accidents but has had many thrilling ex
periences. Dr. Horn is welcome homed by his large
congregation and a host of friends. A
reception will bo given him this evening
at the M. E. church, Mr. Muirhead mak
ing the welcome address.
Whitfield Family Poisoned.
W. M Whitfield, his wife, five children
and Mrs. Ginnof Edgemont, who is visiting
them, were poisoned Sunday evening by
eating canned beans. They were all ill
during the night except the oldest daugh
ter and the baby, who had eaten none of
the poisoned food. As the hours advanced
all grew worse and sometime Monday fore
noon Mrs. Ginn went into convulsions.
Physicians were hastily summond and for
a time it was feared she would not survive
but by the close of the day all were out of
danger and are now completely recovered.
Elect City Teachers.
The schsol board held a session Monday
night and re-elected the following teachers:
Misses Susie Frazier, Inice McCorkle,
Lulu Duncan, Katherine Duffield, Bess
and Fay VanBoskirk, and Messrs Carson
and Hayes. Five more are to be elected.
Another meeting will be held tonight.
Salary Should be Increased.
Postmaster Tash has submitted to the
Department an exhibit of the volume of
business transacted in the office for the
month of April. It shows the approxi
mate population supplied by the office to be
8,ooo and that he is handling the business
of a second-class office with 'third-class
facilties and compensation. Nearly eight
hundred mail sacks were received and dis
tributed, made up and dispatched during
the past month. Mr. Tash and his assis
tants are obliged to work from twelve to
fourteen hours per day and the present
compensation is certainly inadequate.
The Maypole Party.
Much praise has been bestowed upon
the Maypole party given, by the younger
pupils of Miss Minnie Morris' dancing
classes at the opera house last Friday even
ing, many declaring it the best entertain
ment of the season. It certainly reflects
much credit upon Miss Morris' ability as
an instructor and upon her pupils ability
to interpret the Terpsichorean art It had
a very good attendance. Moore's orchestra
furnished music for. all the dances by the
class, Miss Mcrris plajing for the others
We give the program:
Song "I Got Mine, Boys."
Minuet Virginia Broome.
Wirth Helen Broome, Leota Mollring,
Gwendolin Johnson. Alice Morris.
Varsouvaiana Glide Nellie Elmore, Vir
Spanish Yorke Francis Lockwood, Gwen
Tambourine Dance Virginia Broome,
Song and Dance "Won't You Play House
With Me?" Larnia Johnson.
Fisher Maiden Josie Hampton,
Butterfly Dance Alice Morris.
Cream City Minuet Kate Feather, Lar-
Umbrella Dance Helen Broome.
Mirror Dance Leota Mollring, Alice
Double Skirt Dance Helen Broome, Leota
Mollring, Alice Morris, Gwendolin
Maypole Dance Class.
Each number is deserving of special
mention but space forbids. The umbrella,
mirror and double skirt dances were es
pecially beautiful. The mirror dance is
Miss Morris own production and is quite
ingenuous. A frame was draped at top
and sides, the two girls were much alike
in appearance and were dressed so that
one dancing back of the frame facing the
audience and the other dancing in front
with her back to the audience gave the
impression that the one in front was danc
ing before a mirror, their movements be
ing in perfect unison. The song, "Won't
You Play House With Me?" was heartily
enjoyed and the young singer understands
well the art of "singing to' her audience.
One little tot, LaVaughn Moulton,
who is scarce three years old, waltzes and
two-steps in a manner that grown folks
might congratulate themselves upon. After
the conclusion of the program many of
those present spent two or three hours in
Eight Pages Home Print.
This week's paper contains eight pages
all home print without plates or patent
medicine ads. The pages are also cut so
that every advertiser is strictly on the "in
side" of the best advertising medium in the

of tho story, comes to us it is said, fully
equipped for this groat character part nnd

A play that is a connection of love,
laughter nnd pathos has always been a
popular play, a sweet, simple, littlo story,
during the telling of which laughter and
tears follow each other as cloud's shadows
chase across tho Big Horn mountains when
bathed in glorious sunshine.
Tho action of the city council in separat
ing the office of water and street commis
sioner and appointing a night policeman is
of apparent benefit to the city Tho duties
of the water commissioner are sufficient to
occupy the entire attention of one man.
Tho salary is $65 per month.
The marshal will also bo obliged to act as
street commissioner. His salary is fixed
at $75 per month nnd nil fines collected
shall be turned into tho city treasury. It
has frequently been said that whenever
you want tho marshal he cennot bo found.
When there is only one marshnl you can
not expect him to bo on duty twenty-four
hours iu a day, hence tho need of a night
policeman. His salary will bo fifty-five
per month. Thissorvicc will cost the city
but little morn than heretofore nnd the ad-
vantngos to bo derived therefrom arc many.
'I he appointment of R. C. Nolemnn as city
attorney, M, A. Shay, marshal and street
commissioner, Albert Wiker, night police
man and A. F. Mollring as water commis
sioner, shows good judginent on the part
tho mayor. All the appointees" fire com
