A LARGE ATTENDANCE.

School began last Monday morning with
everything in working and every indication
for a prosperous and interesting term.
The children took to their studies with n
vim and disposition that indicated a gen
eral desire to make the best of the term
just begun. The enrollment for the first

man. Messrs. R. Standen and Collins'

A Close Call.
Henry Mosher, son of Chief Dispatcher
Mosher, came near losing his life Sunday

Henry's theory did not result as he an
ticipated for the minute he touched the
burning match to his pants, which he had
cleaned with gasoline, he was in flames.
Prompt action on the part of those nearby
saved the lad from seridus burns and per
haps a horrible death. As it is, he is
suffering with slight burns.
Mrs. Quivey Entertains.
A pleasant evening was spent at the
borne of Mr. and Mrs. M. B. Quivey
last Tuesdav. The genial hostess
was ably assisted in the social function

interested the guests during the greater
part of the evening and as a result of
the contest Mrs. C. H. Connctt was
awarded first prize and the consolation

a pleasant feature of the social event.

During the "old man's" absence in Col
orado a couple of weeks ago the Times
commented on the "material improve
ment" of The Herald, whJch assertion
was correct, we are pleased to say. How
ever, all the credit was given Mr. Louns
bury when it should have been
divided with Mr. Kniest as both of them
took much interest in the paper. And
what made the comment more pleasing is
the fact that this was the first favorable
mention ever made of Thb'Herald by that
sheet. We thought at the time what a
treat it would be to Times readers if Bro.
Ellis would take a vacation and that is
what he did this week. Mrs. Rustin, re
publican candidate for county superintend
ent of schools, has editorial charge of his
paper with the result of "material Im
provement" and we venture to say that
great family journal of morality and sun
shine would be appreciated by its read
ders if the present editorial management
was made permanent and Mr, Ellis run
for the supcrintendency.
At the meeting of the city council last
Saturday evening the mayor appointed W.

Mrs. Albert Wildy, Mrs. Tiernan, Mrs.

a course in the art of embalming. He is
now a full-fledged embalmer, which a
newly issued certificate of the Chicago
Alliance put up a mighty good fight for
the new state normal school, but to no
avail, as Kearney was selected after over
a hundred ballots. Alliance need not feel
bad for her turn is bound to come. She is
already the best town in western Nebraska,
and still growing better. It does not seem
a square deal, however, to locate the school
at Kearney, which already has a large state
institution. Gering Courier.

of houses of worship is a criterion, we are
indeed a God-fearing community.
C. W. Brennan went to Hemingford
Wednesday to form the acquaintance of
voters in that section of the county. It is
now evident to everybody that Charlie is
the strongest candidate the fusionists
could have nominated for the office of
county treasurer. He has been a resident
of the county for sixteen years and nothing
can be said against his character or quali
fications. He will receive a splendid vote
in Alliance and there is no reason why he
should not have the solid fusion support
throughout the county. Mr. Brennan will
make a clean, gentlemanly campaign.
