Armstrong Sells to Spry.
H. C. Armstrong surprised his many
friends last Friday by the announcement
that he had disposed of the well known
business establishment, the "Red Light"
saloon, and that the purchaser was none
other than the genial, good naturcd Simon
Spry. By this transaction it's simply an
instance of one popular man succeeding
another. Who ever has had business trans
actions with Henry Armstrong or have the
pleasure of his acquaintance know him to
be a man of his word, every time. Henry
has other business interests that will oc
cupy his mind and it is his intention to con
centrate such business so as to center it at
Sheridan, where he has been interested
for some time. It may be that Alliance
will lose this public-spirited citizen, much
to its detriment for in every move that
meant the advancement of the city's inter
ests Henry Armstrong was in the lead.
With such interests removed to another
point it will naturally require his personal
supervision which will sooner or later
mean a permanent change. We cannot re
frain from dwelling on the manly, open
manner which characterized Henry s rec
ord in Alliance, That good, old Scotch
blood, that never betrayed its origin, stood
out in the open, fearless but just, like the
gladiator of old, neither seeking favors nor
cowering, like some dogs, before an enemy.
God bless your good old spirit, Henry 1
As for the new proprietor of what is now
known as "The National Club" we can say
as much. Simon Spry has the confidence
of this community. He is a man in the
true sense of the word, and as we pre
vious said, it is a change of ownership in
which both parties have the confidence of
the community.
New Orders Issued.
Sheridan Post: An order has been issued
by the Burlington railroad company to
concentrate the general repair work of the
B. M. system at the Havelock shops, near
Lincoln. In compliance therewith there
has been a general reduction of shop forces
at the several division points along the
line. The shops at McCook, Neb., have
been permanently closed.
At Alliance and Sheridan only light run
ning repairs will be done in the future, the
heavy work being sent to Havelock. Twenty-five
men were laid off here yesterday.
These comprise machinists, helpers and
round house men. Some few others may
be laid off later, but it is not believed that
there wiU be 'a general reductionr The
force now employed in the Sheridan shops
comprise about 75 mechanics and laborers,
and the total number of employes in the
shops and yards averages about 200. The
monthly payroll approximates $15,000 to

Superintendent Smith Talks.
Lincoln Star: A rumor has been afloat
to the effect that there is to be a general
shut down in the mechanical department
of the Burlington road. It has been said
that the shops at Lincoln, Havelock. Alli
ance and McCook, were to be cut to an
alaming degree.
The superintendent of motive power, R.
D. Smith, said to a representative of The
Star yesterday that this rurhor was errone
ous. The action of the company is misin
terpreted by employes.
"We are going to make a slight reduc
tion," he said, "but it is only because of
the general decrease of business. Traffic
on the road is small, and it is the falling
off in business that has caused the com
pany to take the action it has decided to
"During the last winter the company
has hired a great many men, and has put
all its rolling stock in shop that it could, so
that it might be in shape this summer for
the St. Louis fair. We consider that if a
car has been shopped within one year, it
is in first class shape, and every car on the
B. & M. has been shopped within the last
eight months. All our locomotive, and car
stock is in first class shape. It is pnly at
the passenger car and locomotive shops
that there will be any cut. In the freight
car repairing department there is a de
mand for men and we are hiring all the
time," ,WWWWWwwwww.

Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Rosenberger were
down from their ranch in Nonpareil pre
cinct Monday. Mr. Rosenberger is one of
the most successful farmers and stockgrow
ers in the county. Last season he raised
about 2500 bushels of potatoes and 1500
bushels of small grain which netted him a
snug amount. Mr. Rosenberger called at this
office and left an order for extra copies of
the illustrated edition.
The month of March was ushered in as
a most pleasant, spring-like day. The
rays of the sun from a cloudless sky
warmed the atmosphere to such an degree
as to make out-door recreation delightful.
But hoary old winter was not to be con
quered by such pacific tactics and the
second day of this month he landed a ter
rific norther on the tender part of the un
suspecting lamb. Tuesday night, the north
king sat upon his icy throne, surrounded
by a frigid atmosphere which extended
over a wide area of territory. Even the
modern sodom of Omaha, which is said to
derive heat from the infernal regions
beneath its surface, complained of the
sudden change.
Rev. A. C. Wunderlich, formerly of this
county but a resident of Germania. Big
Horn Basin, Wyo., for the last five years,
came in from Cheyenne yesterday, going
west on No. 41. The Herald enjoyed a
pleasant visit from Mr. Wunderlich. He
informed us that the Big Horn country is
developing rapidly and there is a great in
flux of immigration. Work will soon be
gin on the new Wyoming Central railroad
to be built by the Belgo-American Drilling
Trust, from Orin Junction to Lander,
Thermopolis, Cody and the National Park.
The road will be approximately 250 miles
long and will pass through the oil fields
which are being opened up in, central Wy
oming. It is announced that the new line
will be built in six months. Governor
Chatteron and Denver capitalist are inter
ested in the project. Mr. Wunderlich
thinks that the Big Horn country has a
great future. He will spend a day at
Crawford and expects to be accompanied
west by Henry Wohlers and bride, whom
he married a week ago, and several other
Mayor Oucchscnstcin a Candidate.

Mentally Unbalanced.
C. W. Hodges, who has been employed
in the railway paint shop at this place, has
been suffering with mental abberation of
late and realizing his condition at rational
moments made it known to the
county authorities with the request
that he be guarded. It seems that Hodges'
insanity is of a violent nature, and Sheriff
Reed placed him in the county jail after he
had been judged a fit subject for the
asylum, until the arrival of No. 42 Tues
day night, when he would bo taken to the
state institution at Lincoln. While alone
in his sell, Hodges secured the lid of a tin
pail and attempted suicide by cutting his
throat. He succeeded in inflicting a deep,
jagged cut from ear to ear, that almost
reached the jugular vein. When discov
ered, the insane man was covered with his
own blood, presenting a pitible sight. He
was, however, in a condition that enabled
him to be taken away the same night.
It is said that Hodges' insanity dates
from the time he fell from a car, some
three months ago, when he received a se
vere fracture of the head. Since the ac
cident he has not appeared rational at all
times and in fact has been growing worse.
Mrs. Hodges is away from home visiting at
