A stranger with an uubnlnncod mind
was taken into custody by. Sheriff Kaed
Monday. He was decidedly off yet in his
insanity he fooled many with stories of
adventure and experience. His greatest
trouble seemed to be of a family nature
and he wait dasirious of securing a divorce
from his wife who was very quarelsome
and liable to start a rough house whenever
he went home. The next day lis got it in
to his distorted brain that his warlike
spouse had secured a legal separation from
him and he ' therefore happy. The
stranger was apparently harmless and the
authorities finally released him aud he
went his way rejoicing. Who he waB or
from whence he came was information the
sheriff was unable to gather.
Another old-time razor, with a history
attached to it, has turned up in alliaace.
It was, until recently, the property of
"Dad" Johnson, who has handed it don
to his son for care in the future generation,
The razor was the property of Mr. John
son's great grandfather and was carried
through the revolutionary and Blackhawk
wart. It is just such a looking shavjng
knife as that spoken of by Tub Herald
some time ago, which is the property of
Engineer Allen and was once owned by
the great Ethan Allen of revolutionary
fnme. Both the razors were manufactured
in Sheffield, England. The Johnson razor
ha rather a gruesome history and it is
said that it was used in shaving the dead
continental soldiers who fell before tho
Engilish army. It was alo used during a
trying position as a weapon of defence by
its owner in an Indian altercation at the
time of the fierce Blackhawk war, and
many other thrilling stories in which the
razor helps to make interesting history is
told by Mr, Johnson.

witnessed the accident hurried to his
assistance and found him unconscious,
bleeding profusely at tho mouth, nose
and ears. He was carried to the Wiker

then followed an interval of compouuru
and in u moment he fell calmly to
sleep and thu soul of Martin Gillcran
passed away in peace.
The funeral took place this afternoon
trom tho Church of tho Holy Rosary,
Rev. Father Barry officiating, and tho

resigned to the will of tho Creator wlto
does all things for tho best, tho disap
pointments and trials of life are light

those who did so much to imsist the
bereaved parent in their trial is to be
commended and proves conclusively
that charity is a living virtue in the
hearts of the people of Alliance.
The Slay ton Jubilee singers, under the
auspices of the normal institute, gave an
entertainment at the opera house Tuesday
night, which waV well received by the
large audience present. The Slaytons are
accomplished musicians and take special
pains in their musical work. This con
cludes the series of entertainments arrang
ed by those inldreated in the junior normal
institute and the selections were highly
appreciated by all. It was well worth the
exertion and expense of securing the vari
ous classical features and we only regret
that they have been concluded.

out would Indicate that the strike is all off
and all this, bat the oold fnat still remains
that the price of cattle is ruinously low
and the demand for stock at the packing
centers will not warrant shipments. It is
a bad state of affairs ami there are a lot of
liars somewhere in the rnuup.
Tho watermelon soawn was formerly

finest kind grown and exceedingly sweet
and juicy. Tho grocery boys satisfied tli
cravings of the poor newspapor men of
the town by sending around samples of the
watermelons, for which they have they
have the craft's everlasting thanks. Of
course, there was a siege anatomical dis
turbance in newspaper circles tho next
day as a result of overindulgence. It is
said a certain quill driver was compelled
to seek the assistance of a doctor to relieve
him of that griping pain nnd it can be laid
