The duck hunting sonsou brings with it
not only royal sport, but there is also an

Mr. and Mrs. II, A. Allison of Lakeside
came in from the ranch Saturday, remain
ing till Sunday. Mr. Allison called to
have his stock brand inserted in this paper
saying that if it had appeared therein be
fore it would have saved him trouble and
expense in finding some cattle which had
strayed. The benefit of advertising stock
brands should be apparent to every stock
man, especially so during the winter
months when stock is so likely to stray off
in storms. Owing to The Herald's un
equaled circulation in this section of the
state your brands will become familiar to
all stockmen if it appears on The Herald's
brand page and may be the means of sav
ing you many dollars. Estray notices will
be inserted free on the brand page to those
who have their brands advertised.
A September Snow Storm.
The old adage that wonders never cease
was forcibly brought to mind even to the
oldest inhabitant last Sunday and Mon
day when this section was visited by a
snow storm that would bave been con
sidered a stem-winder in the middle of
winter. But as the storm was of a gener
al nature, visiting a vast area of country,
the people of Box Butte county can not feel
that they have been treated impartially or
that the weather man had it iu tor us alone.
The weather Sunday w,n cloudy and raw
with occasional spits of snow during the
afternoon. By evening however the snow
storm upon us with full force accompanied
by a stiff, cold wind from the north. The
storm was continued with scarcely an inter
mission until Tuesday evening. Whllo the
landscape was covered with two or three
inches of the beautiful, the atmosphere re
mained above freezing point thus evading
any serious results to range stock. The
snow soon disappeared after the storm and
aside from a light frost Tuesday morning
there is nothing left to tell the tale but his
tory of Alliance's mid-winter weather in
September, A. D. 1903.
Judge Wcstover Honored.
A4 the M. E. conference held at Valen
tine last week Judge W. H. Westover of
this district was elected a lay delegate to
the general conference to be held at Los
Angeles, Cal., next May. This general
conference is made up of one ministerial
and one lay delegate from each conference
district of the world and has a session once
every four years. The selection of dele
gates is one of the most important actions
of the conference and every delegate so
elected has not only the confidence of his
church associates but also the highest re
spect of every citizen of the district from
whence he comes. It is required of a
delegate that he possess good moral
character and an upright demeanor.
These qualifications are exemplified in
the persou of our worthy 'ridge who will
represent this district of Nebraska in the
general conference conscientiously and
whith honor to the M. E. church of the
state at large.

The scarcity of eggs in the local markets
the past few days has been a sore distress
to public meal caterers as well as to the
private household. This state of affairs
has originated the idea in tho minds of
several Allianceites to enter into tho
chickeu business on an extensive scale. It
is argued and backed up by a long column
of figures that a person can make an in
dependent fortune in hen raising within
the short space of three years. That there
is money to be made at poultry raising in
Box Butte county is a cinch, but the pro
fits to be derived from such an investment
in that space of time should be confined to
a modest fortune.
Something New to Him.

"IJ. P. Sheldon, a young man ftoin
Lauder, about 2G years of age, arrived
in Casper last week, and for the fust
time in his life saw a railroad train.
He had some idea what the train looked
like, but the puffing of tho engine, the
escaping steam, the ringing of tho
engine bell and tho rumbling of thu car
wheels over the steel track was all new
to him and of course was n groat cur
iosity. Mr. Sholdon trailed some sheep
