Burglars effected an entrance to the
feed storo of Gregg & Wright, on
Cheyenne avenue, last Monday night,
and gained access to the safe, which
they tapped for $148, leaving behind a
number of checks and other valuable
papers. The thieves had little trouble
in securing their booty as the safe was
not locked and entrance to the interior
was effected through a window that
closed only by a screen.
Three young men occupy jail cells
today for their inclination to secure
money by burglary. Two of these,
Harvey Rcnsvold, aged 15 years, and
Harry Haas, aged 20, last evening con
fessed to robbing the safe in Gregg &
Wright's feed storo of $148.00 Monday
night. Rensvold had been employed
in the store for a few months and Haas
had been working in Smith's livery since
last spring. They had planned the rob
bery for a week, and young Rcnsvold
observed that Mr. Gregg did not turn
the combination lock on that night.
The spoils were divided, a portion be
ing concealed in the livery barn and the
balance bidden in the cellar at Rons
void's house. S135.00 was recovered.
George Roland, a normal student,
was arrested this morning for the theft
of $5.00. Young Roland has been a
student at the Alliance high school for
the past four years. Students at the
normal have been missing money for
several days, about $28.50 being the
total amount. Supt. Hayes suspected
Roland, and this morning he was de
tected stealing money and confessed.
Complaints have been filed against
each of the young men. It is a source
of regret to see young people start out
on such a course, but if thoy are not
stopped, now, it is very likely that they
would De later and would probably land
in the penitentiary. -
A Hayrack Party, and Mishap.
The members of the "Mary Jane"
club and their escorts were entertained
Tuesday evening at the ranch home of
Mr. and Mrs, Geo. D. Gaddis, six miles
south of Alliance. Mrs. Gaddis had an
elegant chicken supper prepared for her
guests, who did ample justice to the
spread, the ride out there having proved
a better appetizer for the jolly crowd
than a dozen bottles of Pcruna. After
spending a few hours in various pleas
ures, the young people started for home
in excellent spirits, but their pleaeurcs
were marred when within a mile of town
when Ray Deitlein fell through the rack,
the wagon passing partly over one of
his limbs, bruising him quite badly and
narrowly escaping serious injury. Kay
has been unable to leave his home since
but with the careful attention he is re
ceiving from Dr. Hand and the "Mary
Janes," his friends hope to see him
down town in a day or two and hear
him explain how it all happened. Those
who made up the party were:

The management of the Crystal. The"

tures this week representing the well
known Goebel tragedy and incidents
connected with the lawlcsness that pre
vailed in the state of Kentucky a few
years ago, which horrified .the whole
world.and stirred social and political
circles of the blue grass state to the
highest pitch, finally resulting in the

and murder. All this is portrayed in

Fine New Meat Market
The Eastern Meat Market is the name
of a new enterprise established last Sat
urday in the handsome new business block
erected by Nate Hart of Lead, S. D., and
but recently completed. Geo. E. Younkin
is the proprietor of the same, and he has
for his manager Fred H. Countryman, a
thoroughly experienced meat cutter and
all around butcher, who came recently
from Chicago, where he was engaged in
the butcher business for an umber of years
in several of the leading shops.
The Eastern Meat Markst is doubtless
one of the finest places of the kind in the
west. The room is artistically decorated
and the paraphernalia required for the
completion of the shop in keeping with the
interior. A large ice box, or rather re
frigerator, keeps the fresh meats and fish
in excellent condition, so that customers
can always rely on good, wholesome food
in this line. Every department is care
fully looked after and a large stock kept on
hand. In fresh meats there may always
be found the choicest beef, veal, mutton
and pork, also poultry of every description,
including wild game when the same is in
season and can be had. The fish depart
ment ef the Eastern Meat Market is an
important item and here one may always
secure the freshest and choicest line of
ocean, lake and river fish, oysters and the
like that can be secured.
The management of the Eastern Meat
Market wish to announce that they will
always pay the highest cash price for live
stock, poultry and game and ask farmers
and cattlemen to see them before they sell
their product, Mr. -Countryman recently
went to the Childs ranch, where he bought
38 head of fine three-year-old Hereford
cattle which he is putting on the block at
this market for local customers, and which
had been considered too high-priced stock
for local trade, so this is evidence that the
Eastern Market will give its patrons the
best to be had in the land.
The cash system has been established
by Mr. Younkin and will be a strict fea
ture of the place he conducts. Mr. Coun
tryman will see to it that customers get
what they pay- for every time both in qual
ty and quantity, and for the same, with
courteous treatment, cash is asked and in
sisted upon, so that it is only fair to cus
tomer and proprietor.
