Which shows the value of THE HERALD as an
Advertising Medium.
An Alliance merchant one who is up-to-date, carries an immense
stock of goods, docs an enormous business, and spends a large
amount pacb mouth in printer's ink says:
While wc arc pleased to know that this merchant is getting value re
ceived for his money yet we were not surprised when he made the above
statement this week- It is reasonable to suppose that a paper having
nearly twice the circulation of another paper is read by more people.
THE HERALD'S circulation in Alliance is much larger than any
other paper and its circulation in the county outside of Alliance is ten
times as much us any other paper. THE HERALD'S subscription
books are open for inspection to anyone interested.
L. Sampy of Nonpareil was in the city
last week, having brought down several
hundred pounds of bromos grass seed for
parties in this vicinity. A. S, Reed took
200 pounds. Mr. Sampy realized between
S200 and $300 from seed off of eight acres .
this season. He sowed eight acres to '
bromos grass six years ago and it has
thrived every year. Last spring he seeded
forty acres and intends to sow twenty
acres each year until he has a quarter sec
tion seeded down. He considers bromos
grass preferable to timothy and as dry
weather does not injure it there is no
question but what it is a splendid forage
for this country. Those who sow bromos
will enhance the value of their land.

A Pleasant Day win Many
Thanksgiving in Alliance was, one ever
to be remembered 1n every household
where" the- fruits of the field and the fat of
the land supplied ample for the inner man.
The day was unusually fine, not a cloud
floated through the sky and Old Sol with
his rays of warmth tnade the day seem
more like mid-summer than the threshold
of winter. Outdoor pleasures and Drome-
nades .f,,,,ed he """oughfares with people
even till late in tho evening when the sun
disappeared and the chilly breath of night
changed the atmosphere, so that overcoats
and light furs were comfortable.
O, but didn't Henry Armstrong look
swell yesterday?

Thanksgiving with Mrs. Stoner's parents,

past was served and tho day closed with

ing fully realized.
