But as it is rather early to count the birds before they ard batched, we advise nimrods not to count on too. many birds when they start out on the campaign of de struction.

A dance was giveja't .the. opera! nouse ju ine evening in uuuut -pi ioe visiting, club. The- Alliance -boys re-1 turried this morning.

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 sion. . And we believe he will, for there is no more enthusiastic admirer of the illustrious Nebraskan than Mr. Albro. The brick work on St. Agnes acad emy is completed and the plumbers will finish up possibly this week. The beautiful building will soon be enclosed aud the work of completing the interior will be rushed along as fast as possible. It is thought that the sisters will be here some time during the latter part 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. Thcro was war among the cement sidewalk builders one day this week when for awhile things were quite lively aud knockout blows were wielded in every direction. Jealousy is said to be the "paramount issue" in the disturb ance. One of the participants made a most enviable pugilistic record by knocking out three of the opposition. As a result of the unpleasantness, the city treasury is $30 to the good,. Harry Skccls, a popular traveling salesman for the Hcinzo Pickle compa ny, is interviewing Alliance merchants today. This concern carries fifty-seven varieties of its excellent products and it is said that Mr. Skcels contemplates adding 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., stopped in Alliance last Saturday fore noon on his return from Logan, Iowa, where he had been to attend the funeral of a brother. Mr. Parkin was a pioneer settler in this county but has been living near Edgemont for the past nine years. Ho met a number of old-time friends during his brief visit here and it is his intention to spend a few days when he comes again. His son Roy was recently married and is principal of a school in Wyoming. The many friends ol the family will be glad .to learn that they are enjoying health aud prosperity. Ran Out of Gasoline. Dr. Bowman received his new Lam bert auto the latter part of the week, and is now prepared to reach a hurry call on short notice, provided he does not run out of gasoline, etc. The doc tor is proving an expert chauffeur, not having climbed any telephone poles or trees up to this time. Later The editor has just received a telephone, message from the doctor saying that he is stalled six miles northeast of Alliance where he run out of gasoline and we shall go to his rescue wiiu uui uuim, rruibu, ur mo m;i recently played the same trick on. us when six "miles northwest of town. Even the automobile man has troubles. bis Amnnir . thnctn urtirv .will attftnri tM national convention at DenreV-will bC Conductor Dick Burke and .his .worthy' understudy, "Billy" Heelan who left yesterday morning to arrange matters. They have secured quarters, for' the J great affair, and can be found at the slated for Brown Palace. Dick is speech and "Billy" is down for a, clog dance at the convention, so that will help some in representing Alliance at the great gathering. After the strenuous work of the convention; Messrs.

As champion card players, Mis3 Myrtle Carlson and T.N, Waller were awarded prizes, while Miss Ethel Nolan and A. W. Pierson carried off tbe consolation gifts. The married friends of Mr. and Mrs. Newberry will have their turn next fpr an enjoyable evening at this hospitable home. C. A. Newberry and C. O. Aspenwall made a trip in tbe former's auto to El dred's ranch, some thirty-five miles southeast, last Sunday. Although the roads were very sandy in many places, the high-wheeled machine went through without difficulty. A Jewel Beyond Price. 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 life," 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. Narrow Escape from Shocking Death John Shirk, night employe at the Burlington shops, was quite painfully 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 inau E; E. Terry who dragged him from beneath the train, would doubt less have been crushed to death. Tho injured man was taken to Dr. Copscy's office where his wounds were dressed and ho was carried to his homo in the cast part of the city where ho remained unconscious the greater part of Sunday and Monday. However, no serious complications have appeared, and Mr., Shirk is now ni a fair way to recover. rrwwr. 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 winning by a score of 5 to 4 in tho tenth. Batterics:: " Copsey and 'Freer V0t 'A'11?! 'Waciolti and, Rupgert iui iiiiijwuuu. unique, uuiuric. Death of Truman Brown The remains of Truman J. Brown, accompanied by his son, I. A. Brown, M. D,, arrived here this morning on 43 from Zcaring, Iowa, where Mr. Brown died last Monday of chronic nephritis, aged 83 years. Deceased was well known in this county, where he resided for twenty-one years, removing to Iowa five years ago. He was here only a few weeks ago looking after property inter ests and seemed in good health and spir its for one of his age. The funeral took place today from the Baptist church, Rev. Jeffers conducting the services, and the remains were interred beside his wife in Greenwood cemetery. Mr. 'Brown leaves three sons, T. F. , of this place, Dr. Brown f Zearing, Io., and Cal of Chicago. 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 ertoire organization, will play a three 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 Lion and the Mouse." Just think of 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 ing a lot ol old plays under new titles, but it is a high-class stock company 'playing only the latest successful pro ductions. B. E. Johnson of Hem ingford returned this week from Omaha, where he purchased two cars of mowers and binders of the Johnson and Acme manu facture, also a large supply of twine. It will pay those in need of such machinery to call and inspect his line and get prices.

Hayes and children, who havo heeu visiting relatives at Lin coln, since tho close of the Alliance pub lic schools, arrived home Saturday, and Mr. Hayes now looks as though life were once more worth living. 8 Rev. Jeffers conducted devotional exercises at the chapel Tuesday morn ing and also addressed tho teachers, on "School Ethics." His remarks were practical and told in such a way as to make them interesting. The students hope ho may be able to talk to them again during the session of the normal. 2 County Supt. Phtlipps attended the annual school meeting in district No. 14 Monday, This is his home district and he is anxious to have school matters in. this district in a satisfactory condition. Monday at' their annual meeting they voted to build a new school house, put inrnow desks and other necessary ma' teriai, ruA'C&pty-W. R. Akers gave the second niyriler qf .the lecture course at thejPhe Ian opera house Wednesday night. It was an illustrated lecture on "The Holy Land." Views of Jerusalem and inter esting places in and about, Jerusalem were shown and explained by the 'cap tain. Capt. Akers has an illustrated lecture on Mexico, which be intends to give in Alliance at some date in the near future. 3 The ladies of the town came out 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 dent body. Taken to the Reform School. Geo. Rolland, who was arrested last week for stealing a sum of mouey at the uornfal school, mention of which was made in The Herald at the time, was ordered taken to the reform school at Kearney by Judge Berry last Sat- urday. - Special sale of muslin underwear at Regan's. fWWWW-t BIGNESS LOCALS.
