We have just received over 2000
pieces of Press Cut Glass. The
imitation is so perfect that it
takes an expert to tell the differ
ence between it and the genu
ine cut. The prices on these
goods are going to be cut right
in two. For instance:

Of course we realize the more
we sell of these goods at these
prices the more money we lose,

was taken up Wednesday njtcrnoon,
This is tho case whureiu dufendant H.
M- Anderson, living over in Box Butte
county north of Alliance, is charged
with having come down into Choyeimu,

steer from Miller Robison of Bridge
port. The case was given to the jury
on Wednesday afternoon and after re
maining out all night, they brought in
a verdict of guilty, and found the
value of the animal taken to be twenty
dollats. this is considered ipiitu a
victory for the state as the jury ut last
term of court could not agree, although
over half of the j.irois favored acquital
and it is' gonorally thought disagree
ment is almost equal to nu acquital.

The High school retains the Hag for
another month. Can not one of the
grade rooms wrest the flag from the
High school next mouth? The follow
ing rooms were perfect in punctuality:
High school, seventh grade, sixth grade,
fifth grade, fourth grade, second pri
mary, all in the Central building, and
first and second primary room, and
third aud fourth primary, room in the
Emeisou building. It is due to the
fifth grade in Central building to state
that in that room there has not been
one tardy mark this year, though the
irregularity of attendance of a few of
the pupils has prevented the room
from holding the flag.
The maiii' expressions of satisfaction
made by the patrons of thu school with
reference to the school exhibit was a
source of gratification to the teachers,
and went far toward compensating for
the extra work entailed in the prepara
tion of the matter for the exhibit.
Should our contestant in the statu
contest come off victorious who
doubts it the Alliance schools and
city shall have ovary reason for felici
tations for the year's work in the
schools. Respectfully submitted,
