Sam Albro will leave for Denver Sun
day morning to assume his duty as one
of the special police at the democratic
national convention. We hope our
worthy representative acting in this ca
pacity will permit the Alliance Bryan
"rooters" to go their best on this occa

is no more enthusiastic admirer of the
illustrious Nebraskan than Mr. Albro.

It is thought that the sisters will be

of July or first of next month to look to
their part of the affair. Surely, St.
Agnes academy presents a magnificent
view. Contractor. Reck will soon have
the brick work on the new public high
school pushed forward and that struc
ture too will add to the thrift and pro
gressive appearance of our city.

another, which for fine flavor and gener
al superiority will surpass them all..
And it is pleasing to note that Box
Butte will furnish the product for the
fifty-eighth variety, Mr. Skeels having
selected it as the best in the large terri
tory he covers.
J. C. Parkin of Edgcmont, S. D.,

Many years ago a Norwegian was
taken to n big London hospital suffer'
Ing from an illness which prevented
him from earning his living. Sir Fred
erick Troves operated upon him and
completely cured him of his trouble.
Somo weeks afterward tho man called
upon Sir Frederick at his private house,
and, much to bis surprise, presented
him with a coin. At first Sir Frederick
refused to take It, but tho man would
not be put off.
"It Is now three years since I left my
natiyo Innd," he said, "and before I
camo nway my wife gavo mo this coin
nnd told me never to part with it un
less I was starving. It la not worth
anything, but tho value to me I cnuuot
express. When I was in tbe hospital I
made up my mind that you should
have it. Since you cured mo I have
been starving, but I would not part
with the coin because J wanted you to
havo it as a small return for saving my
VW.hat magnificent piece of Jewelry,"
said Sir Frederick when he told tbe
story, "coild equal the value of that
coin?" London M. A. P.

injured last .Sunday morning whilo at
tempting to board the engine ou train
No. 42, which arrives here at 4 a. in.
Mn Shirk was doing work on the Den
ver passenger train locomotivo at the
time 42 came in, and as tho etigiuo of
that train passed, he attempted to get
ou the steps between locomotive aud
tender but missed his hold on the rod
and fell with his head so close to tho
rail that tho boxings of the tender
struck him ns thoy passed, almost
tearing tho scalp from his head. Ho
was in a most dangerous position nnd
but for the timely assistance sf Brake

from beneath the train, would doubt

Tho injured man was taken to Dr.

of Sunday and Monday. However, no

Two Games Taken
From the Maywoods
And still the Alliance ball team has
met no foe equal its metal.
Last Sunday the loudly heralded
Maywood, Furnas county, ball team
appeared on the diamond here to double
up our aggregation and throw them
over the fence. At least that was the
expectation and a great crowd was on
hand to witness the "stunt," For the
first two innings of the game things
looked mighty blucish for the Alliancq
team. Hull's work in tbe box was un
certain and the visitors pounded him
for three scores. But things took a
sudden change in the fourth inning and
from then on the homo team pounded
the leather and the assistance of a num
ber of errors succeeded in rolling up
twelve scores, closing the game 12 to 7.
The battery was Hull and Freer for
(Alliance, Vann and Ruppert for May-
wood. ',, Umpire, Leidy.
2 iThaFqond game was played Mou
day with Maywood and a better sample
Lof bal playing was produced. The scora
was a tie in tbe ninth inning, Alliance

At the Phelan Opera House Tonight
At last local theatre patrons can feel
assured of seeing the latest New York
city plays at popular prices. The Lor
raine Keene company, a high-class rep

nights engagement at the Phelan opera
house, commencing Thursday, July 2d,
and will produce three of the very best
plays now before the public, "A Merry
Widow," "Are You Crazy?" and "The

seeing such productions at 25, 35 and
50c prices. Miss Lorraine Keene is
supported by a clever aud capable com
pany of real artists. Remember, this
is not a cheap repertoire company play

Wednesday evening with a grim deter
mination to haul down the normal col
ors in a game of basket ball, but once
more the normalitcs carried away the
victory. The game was hotly contested
from start to finish. At the cud of the
first half the score was 1 to 1, but dur
ing the second half the normal girls
gained on their visitors, and the score
at the close of the game was 7 to .3 in
tavor of the normal team.
. 3 Dr, L. P. Ludden, secretary o'Clne
normal school board, was in town Mon
day and .Inspected the school, hut was
unable ta remain to lecture Monday as
was announced last week. Circum
cumstances over which he bad no con
trol made it necessary for him to leave
here Monday afternoon on 43. How
ever, Pr. Ludden gave an address to
the students at chapel on the subject of,
"Opportunity," and for an hour he held
their closest attention by his eloquence
and wit. It is unfortunate that the
people of Alliance were not privileged
to hear him.
3 Supt. Ritchie gave a chapel talk on
the prices teacher must pay to acquire
success in her profession. As a pre
lude to his remarks he read a parody,
presumably of his own composition, on
Poe's The Raven," which gave the
students an insight into the poetical
tendencies of his nature, a characteris
tic not heretofore suspected, hut which
adds greatly to his value as an instruc
tor in English. It is not known whether
this poetry is a result of delayed spring
fever or an indication that the little god
of love has let fly a shaft in his direc
tion. Further developments will be
awaited with great anxiety by the stu
