L. G. Bowman, superintendent of
the Alliance Telephone company, has
been negotiating with the Nebraska
Telephone company of Omaha to secure
an extension of the latters's long dis
tance service so as to include Alliance
and this part of Nebraska. He haB
received information that will be of
great interest to the people of this
city, especially the business men, as
the following letter will show:
Omaha, Nebr., Jan. 301909.
Mr. L. G. Jiowman,
Referring to the matter of this company
extending its toll line system into the
western part of the state, and the proba
bilities of reaching Alliance, we have re
cently had the entire route gone over and
are now making plans for the stringing of
a No. 8 copper toll circuit along with a
No. 12 circuit from Omaha to Denver, via
This, as you know, will be a very heavy
copper circuit and will enable us to give
direct transmission to Chicago and the
We are contemplating along with this
extension, to arrange for a No. 12 copper
toll circuit from Julesburg to Sidney,
thence north to Bridgeport, where it is
expected thereby to get a copper toll con
nection into Alliance.
This will give excellent toll line service
between Alliance and practically all points
in the eastern part of Nebraska.
A. S. Kklly, Supt.
In addition to the information contained
in the above letter, Mr. Bowman tells us
there will be a copper circuit between Al
liance and Crawford and east from Al
liance as far as to Richards & Comstock's
And thus Alliance aud western Nebras
ka continue to move.

?J By Lloyd C. Thomas, Secretary
y'iThere is one thing that has been
very noticeable to the observer of the,
inarch of events in Alliance and that is
the energy with which the city has
been pushing forward. But while we
have been developing in some lines
there remains much to be done yet.
Through the energy of the Woman's
club, Alliance has now a public library.
A movement is on loot to get a splen
did Carnagie library building. If we
can get a good public library it will
prove a most beneficial influence in
helping to keep many of the, boys off
the streets at night. Where they have
a place to go to read books and papers
of a healthy disposition, it cannot but
exert its influence for good. Too much
praise cannot be given the Woman's
club in their efforts to bring this thing
about. Through their energy they
have succeeded in getting a good start
in collecting books. The people have
responded very generously in donating
and we all feel grateful for this gener
However for a city of the size of
Alliance we have but a beginning as
far as the number and subjects of the
volumes are concerned. ' Most of the
books thus far given have been for
older people. The ladies of the Wo
man's club have ordered books for
children aud many more are needed.
This means that more money must be
raised to do this with. New books
will constantly be needed front time to
time aud funds must be raised to meet
the attendeut expense.
A splendid opportunity has present
ed itself that will not only enable the
club to obtain funds, but will also af
ford the people of Alliance an oppor
tunity to enjoy one of the rarest musi

is undertaken is certainly enough to

talent from the high school, so that

most worthy enterprise.
Home Course in
This week we begin the publication
of a scries of eighteen articles written
by C. V. Gregory of the Agricultural
Division of Iowa State College. Prof.
Gregory is a writer of exceptional
ability who handles his subject scienti
fically and vet from a perfectly practi
caUview-point. Time was when many
scouted the idea of science in farming,'
but that time is past. Especially is
this true in this western country, where
farnfing is made- a great success by
proper methods and where failures
have been due more to improper itieth
odfi aud lack of adaptation than ' all
other causes combined.

cluded in this course:

We are printing some extra copies of
this issue so that persons not now sub
scribers to the Herald can begin their
subscriptions with this number, if they
wish to do so. We suggest that sub
scribers who are interested in the sub'
jeet of agriculture file their Heralds,

Big Game Between
Chadron and Alliance
' ' X
We are indebted to Prof. Williams
for the following account of the game
of basket ball at the high school gym
nasium last Saturday night:
Ask anybody who was there and
they will tell you that the basket ball
game between Alliance and Chadron
Friday night was the finest thing by
way of athletics that has ever happen
ed here. The Chadron hoys were
flushed with recent victory and came
down with the intention of winning.
But the training of the Alliance boys
proved more than a match for the
Chadron team and at the close of the
gamo the "Cardinal and Gray" were
trailing in the dust. The score was 37
to 10 in favor of Alliance but this score
does not mean that the difference in
ability was commensurate, for our boys
had to fight hard for every point they
won. Chadron has a fast, nervy team
and plays a good clean game. The
special feature of the game was the
fine team work that both sides exhibit
ed. That the game was intense was
evinced by the fact that the spectators
from timeo time, when the playing
was very close, showed the greatest ex
citement. The playing throughout
was of the rapid fire sort which made
the game more interesting for those
watching. The high school is grateful to
the patrons of the school for the liber
al way they interested themselves in
this course of entertainment arranged
by the association.
A movement is on foot to get the
baskot ball team of the Lead City high
school) to plav here. Lead has a cham
pionship team and in case arrange
ments can be effected for their coming

a good time, but wants more money to have a

playing the remainder of the game, he
cannot remember anything of the half.
P. Nohe showed exceptionally fast form
in getting and passing the ball. Many
of Alliance points were due to his ac
curate passing. The strong guarding
of Shay, Smith and Taylor prevented
Chadron from making many points.
