Mr. and Mrs. J. 41. Biery returned last
Saturday from New Windsor, Colo., where
Mr. 'Biery has been employed for soma
time in the large sugar beet factory. He
reports that industry as flourishing and an
excellent crop has been grown for this
year's grist. The beets average 30 tons to
the acre and will stand a test of 14 per
cent, for which the growers received $5
per ton, or $150 per acre. The talk about
the potato crop being short in Colorado is
unfounded, as the output will average with
that of previous years, but the quality is
not as good as that of the Box Butte tuber.

Eight troops of the tenth cavalry arrived
in Alliance Tuesday and camped that night
in ami about tho race track. The day was
cold and a disagreeable wind made the
overland trip from Ft. Robinson any
thing but pleasant. The cavalry is on its
way to Sidney where tho soldier boys will
go by rail to Ft. Riley, Kans.. to spend
two or three weeks for maneuvers to in
struct tho national guard. There will be
12,000 troops there and Major-General
Bates of Chicago will be in command.
While here the troops were shown every
possible courtesy'by Mayor Buechsenste,in.
Tho pleasant visit of tho Ft. Robinson
officers and cavalry the Fourth of July was
remembered by every public-spirited citi
zen and no pains were spared to make the
visitor at home.
One of the pleasant features of the oc
casion was a concert Tuesday evening by
the Tenth Cavalary band under the direc
tion of Prof. Kelley, chief musican, who
has been in the service of the army since
1S76, The concert took place at the opera
house and was followed by a dance in
which many of our citizens and nrmy
officers participated with enjoyment to all.
The concert program included classic and
other selections and the large audience did
not hesitate to express its appreciation with
vociferous applause. The officer in com
mand instructed the band to give a concert
to Alliance citizens, leaving the time and
place for tho mayor to decide. Mayor
Buechsenstein thereupon appointed F, M.
Broome, Dr. Knight and T. J, O'Keefo as
a committee on arrangements and enter
tainment, whom he assisted during the en
At the conclusion of the concert, Mr.
Broome, on behalf of the mayor and citi
zens of Alliance, thanked the officers for
their kindness in giying the entertainment
and dance and hoped the friendly relations
between the Tenth cavalry and this city
would continue in the .same spirit that has
existed in the past.
Wednesday morning the soldier boys
were up bright aud early and it wasn't long
before tho tented city at the race track
was a thing of the past and a cloud of dust
to the southwest indicated which way the
Tenth cavalry was going.
. Drama and Music.
" At the Old Cross Roads," a dramatical
cast well written and of great interest was
produced at the Phelan opera house Satur
day night by the Arthur u. Alston com
pany in a manner pleasing to the large
audience in attendance. The drama deals
with southern life and customs, wherein
the entangling snares of vice are inter
woven with woman's honor and man's du
plicity. The heroine, though a white
woman of rare beauty, is branded an oc
toroon and salve. A clandestine marriage
brings forth a daughter who is not allowed
to be recognized by her mother. In due
time she has a lover who asks her hand in
marriage. The father consents in the
presence of a social gathering but not with
any love for mother or daughter and he
openly declares the child's relationship to
his octoroon mistress. The hate of the
man toward his mistress is the cause of
many abuses on his part. In a rage of
passion he strikes her across the face with
a svhip, laying open the flesh- In self de
fense the woman shoots her oppressor
dead. A coroner's jury acquits the de
fenseless woman, a character appears up
on the scene who proves the woman to be
of excellent birth but through some entang
ling family affair was lost in childhood.
Troubles finally gives way to peaceful con
ditions and the play concludes with every
thing lovely and everybody happy.
The musical and reading entertainment
given by Miss Ola Bidwell at the opera
house Wednesday evening was well at
tended and highly appreciated. Perhaps
tho actress' rendition of 'The Holy City"
brought her more laurels than any other
number on the program, but Ola had won
the admiration of her audience from. the
first and every number was followed by
spirited applause. There is no doubt the
lady's strongest effort lies in her musical
Two Strong Corporations.

pose of these new corporations is to carry
on a general real estate business and the

stock. There is no doubt-that these new
business procedures will prove successful

The Rcurdon Funeral.
Wc glean the following from the Creston
Daily Advertisers of Oct. 5, regarding the
funeral of the late John P. Reardon:
The funeral of the latu John Reardon,
who died at Alliance, Neb., a few days
ago, took place this morning from St. Mai
achy's church and Father Bcde conducted
high mass as a mark ot honor to the mem
ory of the dead. The employes of tuo
Creston machine bhons. main of whom
were old friends of the deceased, a tie titled
the funeral iu a body and marched Jrom
the shops to the hou.su and to the church.
Music was given by tho choir of St. Mal-
achy's church and was exceptionally fine.
The sermon of Father Bede was most ap
propriate to the occasion, and was a beau
tiful tribute to the generous and whole
souled characteristics of the man who was
the friend of all while alive and whose ac
quaintances, showed their love, for his
memory by a large attendance at the last
sad rites. The floral offerings were many
and handsome and the bier was hidden by
the wealth of flowers which were the trib
ute of friends. The interment was at Cal-
vary cemetery, aud tho remains of John
Reardon were laid in the tomb with tho
tears of many friends of land standing,
Thoso who attended the funeral from
abroad were the following: Mrs. Joel
West of Burlington, Fred Rugh, fuel in
spector for the B, & M., and wife, Lincoln;
F. A. Torrey, assistant superintendent of
motive power of the Burlington,' Chicago;
Master Mechanic George Beckwith and D.
A. Kelley, foreman of shops, Pacific Junc
tion; W. J, Hewitt, agent at Pacific Junc
tion and wife; F, H. Clark, general super
intendent of motive power of the Burling
ton, Chicago; General- Supply Agent
Young of the Burlington, Chicago
The following resolutions of respect by

in which Mr. Reardon was held by his old
time friends in Jowa.
