Arrangements Perfected to Hold a
Picnic on Saturday, September
30 A Committee
Quite a number of old settlers of
tho county met at the court house last
Saturday and perfected the organiza
tion of the Old Settlers association.
Alonzo Sherwood acted as chairman of
the meeting and J. E. Gregg secretary
and a resolution was passed that a per
nianet organization be made. It was
decided to hold the first picnic at the
home of James Barkhurst about five
miles northwest of Alliance on Satur
day, September 30. A committee on
program and arrangements was ap
pointed as follows: Mrs. Lcora
Rustiiv chairman, Mrs. W. A. Mason.
Mrs. B. E. Johnson and Mrs, J. W,
Christy. There is no doubt but what
there will be a large gathering ol old
settlers and a pleasant time is
anticipated. Everybody is invited.
A Big Crowd at the Smoker."
A large nimibcr of guests responded
to the invitations sent out by the Elks
to join them in a social "smoker" at
their handsome club rooms last Thurs
day night. The committee on enter
taining carried out their part royally,
those present indulging in the good
things served most heartily. Win.
Mitchell did the honors as toastmaster
and his easy manner and well-worded
expression kept the "boys" in a happy
mood. The mandolin,' guitar and
piano music was pleasing, and the
summer stories related by the guests
provoked endless laughter, even if some
of the yarns were short on brains.
An number of visiting Elks were
in attendance and expressed themselves
ag greatly pleased with the social
functiou they had the pleasure of
Lots of Fun at the Circus.
Gentry Bros.' circus arrived hero
from the east Tuesday morning and
showed to a large audience in the after
noon. The street parade just before
dinner excited considerable interest, es
pecially the ponies, dogs and monkeys.
At the shows everything was presented
as advertised and the monkey fire de
partment wasMoo comical for anything,
also the antics of the monkey physician
who attended the sick-elephant.
The evening performance was can
celled owing to the threatening condi
tion of the weather and thdse ip at
tendance were refunded their admission.
The circus went from here to Craw
ford and Chadron and will return to
Sunday in Alliance while on its way
down to Sterling.
Sheridan Walks Off with the Bakery.
The Sheridan base ball team arrived
in the city last Friday to play a series
of three games, which, it was thought,
would prove very interesting, but in
this the lovers of the game wore sorely
The game Friday closed on account
of darkness and in the eleventh inning
stood a tie with five scores each.
Manager Guyer of the Sheridan
team stated that his boys were in poor
condition to play ball Friday on ac
count of travel and loss of sleep, but
that they be able to hand the Alliance
ites a bunch in the remaining games.
This proved to be the case in its fullest
meaning. The game Saturday closed
with a score of 8 to 2, and that of Sun
day by 12 to 6.
In the Sunday game the Alliance
team was handicapped by the crippling
of their pitchers Giffin and Hull who
were struck with the ball while batting.
But the cause of Alliance's defeat was
due to inferior batting. In other re
spects, the home team played as good
ball as the visitors.

A dispatch was received in this city
from Ellsworth yebterday stating that
