Modern Woodmen Celebrate.
Nineteen New Members InltlntcJ. .Mount
ed foresters Pnradc
Tuesday was Woodmen day in Al
liance. The city was gaily decorated
in honor of the occasion and some
two hundred Woodmen with thpir
wives and sweethearts attended, and
much credit is due District Deputy
Hamilton for the success of the afiiair.
The only thing to mar the pleasure
of the occasion was the weather which
was too cold for out door music or
Before the noon train arrived the
mounted Foresters' delegation of local
Woodmen and the "goat" all went to
the station to meet Head Consul Tal
bot and the visiting delegations, and
they came, all but Talbot who was de
tained on account of illness in his fam
ily. In his stead came Hon. Ralph E.
Johnson, of Lincoln supreme organizer
of the order, and Special Deputy John
A. Burgess, and delegations from Hem
ingford, Bridgeport, Lakeside and
Headed by the Camp goat the
parade moved through the principal
streets and at 3:30 Zbinden hall was
comfortably filled to hear the oratory,
and no one was disappointed.
From 6 to 8 the ladies serve! supper
to a host ih tho handsomely decorated
assembly room of tho city hall.
Promptly at 8:15 the candidates, 19
in number rode tho goat; they were as
sisted by the speaker District Deputy
Hamilton, H. J, Ellis and the uni
formed Foresters, interspersed with
music by the Bridgeport uniformed
band. The candidates were:

The officers were so well pleased
with the Bridgepoit band that an effort

kee next June, as all but one are Wood
men, and Deputy Hamilton says ho
will get hand leader Clyde Snanoglc

Passing of Pioneers.
Death has claimed two of the pio
neer settlers of Box Butte county dur
ing the past week in the person of Mr.
W. J. Britton, whose funeral occurred
Sunday, mention of which is made in
our Hemingford department, and Mr.
Patrick O'Mara who died Monday eve
ning and was but ied yesterday.
Mr. O'Mara was eighty-four years of
age and had enjoyed good health until
a few days ago when he contracted a
severe cold and the final summons
came suddenly. He resided about
eighteen miles north of Alliance, where
he settled on a homestead twenty years
ago, being one of the first settlers in
the county. Mr. O'Mara was a man
who has seen much of the world and
was universally esteemed by those who
knew him. He leaves a wife, daughter,
Mrs. Joseph Manion, and two sons,
William and John, to whom Tub Her
ald extends sympathy.

Stock Growers Association Meet.
On Thursday afternoon of last week
the executive officers of the Nebraska
Stock Growers association met with
Dr. W. A. Thomas, stale vetenarian.
The object qf the meeting was to ar-
tangc for a modification, or harmoniz
ing of the national and state laws with
regard to stock dipping before ship
ment. The picscnt state law provides
that all stock shall he dipped before
shipping regardless of any previous
dipping. The association's request
was to aUdw stock to bo cleared for
shipment that had boon previously dip
ped, say any time during the spring
or summer season, to prevent the ex
pense of duplicate dipping as well as a
saving of time.
Dr. Thomas assured the association
that their icquest was just and that ho
would endeavor to arrange for such a
joint national and state order. Among
those present were: E. M. Scarle, Jr.,
state auditor; A. M. Modisctt, of Rush
ville; E. E. Lowe, Hyannis; W. H.
Comstock, Elsworth; A. S. Reed, R.
M. Hnmpton and John IJrennan of
