A Request.
It will be only a fitting tribute of regard
for the old soldiers now at rest in onr
cemetery to strew flowers over their graves
on Memorial day. Each child who can
will feel a thrill of pleasure in making his
gift of flowers for that occasion. But we
believe that all honor should be shown the
few veterans who are still with us. It has
been suggested that there are a large num
ber of friends of veterans who would gladly
furnish one or more places in their cat-
f riages for the use of men whom we are
honoring, for the march Iron: the church
to the cemetery. In this way the "Boys
of "Oi" who otherwise could not participate
in the exercises will be given a practical
demonstartion of our regard for them and
for the cause that they so valiantly support
ed. Do you think there will be carriages
enough offered without yours? If there
are any seats to spare they can be offered
the friends who desire to assist in the de
coration of the graves. A friend of the
Veterans. A. T. Hkmminoway.
An Excellent Entertainment.
Major Hendershot, the world famed
drummer boy of the Rappahannock, ap
peared at the opera house Tuesday, night
and interested a large audience with his
wonderful skill and dexterity in beating a
snare drum. While the insignificant ht'le
affair has no claim for music, the major
has the powerof producing wonderfully in
teresting time and expression that seems
to carry with it the musical expression of
every selection executed. Old time war
songs ami marches brought back the long
past days of the rebellion and the grand
army boys present lived the days of the
army over again during the entertainment.
Major Hendershot is, accmpanied in his
entertainments by his son who also posses
musical ability of a high degree. The
local talent which assisted in the entertain
ment is entitled to complimentary congratu
lations for it is not overdrawing the state
ment when we say that it was a complete
success throughout. We feu! like making
particular mention of each number but
this is out of the question, the program
was of such length as to make it impossible.
Closing of the Mission.
The week's mission closed at the Catholic
church last Sunday after a season of re
ligious devotions that were attended daily
by large numbers of people. The sincerity
of the attendants was visibly manifest and
the desire to receive the supernatural
benefits and blessings by making the mis
sion conscientiously and thoroughly ap
peared to bo the aim every one who at
tended the masses and other devotional ex
ercises. There is no contradicting the fact
that a life, such as outlined by the in
structor of the mission, is conducive to
peace and happiness. It requires no phil
osopher or saint to realize this fact. Sun
day morning tho children who have bceu
preparing lor the reception of their
first holy communion approached the altar
during the holy of the mass at
eight o'clock and for the first time re
ceived the Blessed Host, l'he scene wns
a most touching one, beautiful to behold.
The mothers and fathers who witnessed
the blessing conferred on their children
through this great sacrament wero over
come with emotion and ths spirit of hap
piness prevailed in the little church, which
was crowded with worshipers. At tho
high mass confirmation services took place,
his grace, Bishop Keane officiating, assist
ed by Fathers Galviu and Flannigan, the
latter offering in the mass. A large class
ot men, women aud children were the re
cipients of this sacrament of the Holy
Ghost, which has the meaning of "Soldiers
of Christ." This ceremony concluded the
week's religious doings and the same will
be remembered as a mission that has
been blessed beyond expectation and a
great benefit to the community at largo.
Important Manufacturing Plant.
The manufacturing department of C, A.
Newberry's establishuent is a busy place
these days. A ladgc force of skilled labor
is employed in the construction of mam
moth steel dipping tanks, which nre being
shipped to all parts of the west. In fact,
Mr, Newberry has been unable to secure
sufficient help to fill the orders as readily
as he would like to The merit of the
Newberry tank is recognized by all ex
tensive cattle growers. On a recent trip
to tho live stock department of. North
Dakota at Fargo, Mr. Newberry secured
orders for to such tanks and six more from
two counties in the same state. This
means more than foot of tank. Two
tanks were completed and shipped to
Sturgis, S. D., last week. They are each
Go feet long and 7 f et deep, thus being of
such dimensions as to afford the most con
venience aud disp itch for dipping of stock,
which is being universally practiced among
all ranchmen who have come to learn that
it means a great saving of money in their
Band Concert.
The Alliance brass, band will give its
first open air concert of the summer season
next Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock, north
of the Charters hotel. The program, which
follows, includes some of the finest selec
tions of the composers and the concert will
be a source of great pleasure to all.

Last Thursday, May 19, occurred the
death of Glen, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs.
G. P. Jones, after suffering for three weeks
with pneumonia. He bore his suffering
patiently and with Christian fortitude,
passing away peacefully. He was nine
years of age, exceptionally bright in his
studies and a devout member of the M. H.
Sunday school and Junior League. Glen
was beloved by all who knew him and his
bereaved parents have the sympathy of
many warm friends in their loss.
The children in the schools have been
invited to take part in the Memorial day
observances by bringing flowers of any
kind to the Methodist church on Monday,
May 30, at 10 a. m. Any others who can
do so are urged to take a practical interest
in this matter and make a contribution,
however slight, to this cause. The flowers
will be received and arranged by the com
mittee of ladies and will be used in (he
decoration of the seventeen graves of vet
erans in the cimetery, after the exercises
in the Methodist church Monday after
noon. Committee of ladies by
Mrs. J. A. Mallery.
Mrs. Mike Elmore, accompanied by her
daughter, Mrs. D. A. Foley and little
Katherine, arrived on 4: Sunday from the
east. Mrs Elmore came all the way from
far off Maryland, where she resides with
her husband at Cumberland. Mr. Elmore
has an extensive contract in railway con
struction and grading iu that state which
requires an immense amount of machinery
and a great many laborers Steam shovels
are required in the work of excavation and
other appliances for railway construction
are in use. This layout means a large
amount of money, but Mike has everything
in operation and the work is progressing
without interruption It will take another
year to complete the contract, and Mr.
Elmore expects to realize $100,000 on the
deal. But this is not all the railway con
struction this contractor has under way.
Down in Missouri he has another job of a
like nature, which is under the supervision
of J. P. Elmore. This is near the town of
Troy So it is to bo seen that Alliance's
old-time citizen is one of the busiest men
in the United States. Mrs. Elmore will
remain here for some time visiting rela
tives and friends. Mrs. Foley and daughter
will return to Troy shortly.
Card are out announcing the forthcom
ing nuptial of Grace Calene Edmiston to
Dr Lee Wilson Edwards of this city. The
wedding is announced to take place at fie
home of Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Holben, at
1 143 G street, Lincoln, Neb , on Thursday
ovening. June 9, at nine o'clock. This in
formation will come as a surprise to the
host of friends of the genial doctor, whom
it was not known had ah idol of his heart
for several years. Apparently, Cupid had
a groat task on his hands in convincing the
doctor that hu saw too good looking aud
good nn tu red n man to remain outside the
circles of the Benedicts, But laying all
jokes aside, we are all pleased to learn of
Dr. Edward's prospective matrimonial
proceedings and will only be too glad to
welcome the worthy couple to the social
circles of Alliance.

will take laesons in vocal culture. Miss
Bohu poasebces an unusually swt voice,
which, with greater training, will bring

when her reputation as a vocalist wilt be
wide spread. Hor short residence in Alli

are of this opinion, and especially those
who attended the church of Holy Rosary,
where Miss Bohn led the choir and took
such interest in assisting in the services
with the ability which God so manifestly
favored her with.
A. letter from J, A. Thompson, to The
mkrald, irom t-ineville, Iowa, does not
speak very encouragingly of the weather
conditions of the Hawkeye state for this
season of the year, and would advise those
who get the fever to hasten back to the old
home of corn and hogs to just read what
our correspondent has to say before they
blow in car fare and moot with disappoint
ment. Mr. Thompson says "I thought
perhaps a few items of news from old wot
Iowa might bo of interest to some of your
readers. Well, it is rain, rain, rain here,
the spring has been very cold, wet and
backward, and not more thau half tho corn
has been planted up to this date Peach
buds are killed, but cherries, apples and
small fruits look promising, with prospects
of a bountiful crop. Oats and grass are
growing finely and early planted potatoes
aro coming up. Corn is soiling at 50 to 55
cents a bushel and oats at 35 cents. Seed
potatoes from Si 50 to $j.oo per bushel."
