Alliance did not secure the firemen's
convention for next year, but she re
ceived a splendid advertising in trying
toget it, and that is something to be
thankful for. It was worth the effort
made to get the convention, and that
effort was a strenuous one, too.
Father Duffy of Sheridan, Wyo.,
stopped off in Alliance yesterday on
his return from a visit to Cheyenne,
While here he arranged with the Daugh
ters ot Isabella to put on a class at
Sheridan some time in April, the work

A narrow escape from what might
have been a very serious accident oc
curred at the Palace meat market dur
ing the high wind last week. A large
pane of glass was blown in and came
near falling on the lady bookkeeper,
who was sitting at her desk near the
Mrs. Alex Hill, mother of Mrs, Win.
Moulten, has been so ill with pneumon
ia that her children, Mrs. B, Reynolds
and Miss Emma Hill of Lincoln, and
Mrs. Bolaud of Deitz, Wyo., were
wired for last Friday. We are happy
to state, however, that on Sunday a
change for the better took place.
On Monday of this week a deal was
consummated whereby S. H. Desch
disposed of the Palace meat market to
Ed. Eldred. We regret to see Mr.
Desch retire from business, but be
speak for his successor tho same liber
al patronage which the Palace market
has received under its former manage
ment. Editor Bassett of the Hyannis Tri
bune had the misfortune last week of
breaking his newspaper press and be
ing unable to get the necessary new
casting in timo to print thin week's
edition he brought his "forms" to Al
liance Wednesday to be printed on tho
Herald press. Mr. Bassett and this
editor lived in the same town in Illi
nois years ago, and we had a pleasant
visit talking over "old times." Ho
began his editorial and newspaper ca
reer in the "Sucker" state at the age
of eighteen years, and has been at it
ever since. We well remember when
he was the youngest member of the
Illinois Press association.
Prof. D. W, Hayes made a flying
trip to Lincoln within tho last few days
looking after the interests of the state
normal school for northwestern Ne
braska. If this part of the state se
em es the much-coveted institution, as
it should, a large part of the credit for
securing proper recognition by tho
stu'e legislature will be due the able
supeiiutcndcnt of the Alliance city
A game of basket ball is being ar
ranged tor between the Alliance High
School team and the Lead City team,
the champions of the Black Hills.
This will probably be the most hotly
contested game of the season aud lov
ers of the sport are anticipating a great
eutertainment. Of course, our boys
expect to trim the South Dakota
youths, but they will irobably have to
go some to do it.
We sometimes see an ad like this:
"If our work pleases you, tell others;
if not, tell us." We wish to make the
same kind of request in regard to the
Herald. We have reference to the ed
itorial and news features of the paper,
as we are sure the job printing done at
this office always gives satisfaction.
Any suggestions that will be helpful to us
in our efforts to improve the Herald
will be thankfully received.
C. A. Newberry returned last Sun
day morning from California, where he
accompanied Mat Brcnnau about a
month ago. Mr. Brcnnau stood the
trip fairly well despite his condition
and when Mr. Newberry returned he
was feeling quite strong. Cheney vis
ited Los Angeles, where he met Simon
Spry? R. C. Noleman and several
other former Allianceites, whom he re
ports well and prosperous.
Another Haynes Bros., New York,
cabinet grand piano arrived this week
for the Alliance branch of G. A. Cran
cer company, Lincoln. Mrs. Ross,
manager of the Alliance store, informs
us that they recently sold one of these
celebrated instruments to the high
school of Torriugton, Wyo., in compe
tition with five other agents. This
speaks well for the piano, aud also for
the rustling qualifications of its repre
sentative. Will M. Maupm, deputy commis
sioner of the Nebraska Bureau of La
bor and Industrial Statistics, sends the
Herald a notice for publication which
you will find iu this issue under the
caption, "Farm Help Wanted." Mr.
Maupin kindly offers to furnish us reg
ularly with the bulletins from his de
partment, which offer we appreciate
and shall make use of the same in
furnishing our readers with interesting
For the good of the city which it
represents, the Herald has donated ad
vertising space for the use of the Com
mercial Club. The object is to adver
tise iu this space anything that will be
of general interest and the general
good of the business interests of the
city. If you have a good thought for
this department, kindly communicate
with the secretary of the Commercial
Club. Suggestions from any interested
parties will be gladly received.
W. H. Prettyman, Hyannis ageut
for the Adams express company, has
been summoned to appear before the
grand jury of Sheridan county, a,t
Rushville, next Monday, February 1st,
bringing the books and documents of
his office which show the receipts of
packages containing intoxicating liquor
at Bingham during a period of twelve
months prioj to the first day of this
year. And William wonders who they
are after at Bingham. Hyannis Tri
bune. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hickey and child
ren of Hemingford arrived in Gretna
Wednesday morning for a visit of
several weeks with relatives and friends.
Roy has been ill for several months
with rheumatism, aud clearly shows
the rosulU of it. He is a lot thinner
than he was aud is looking bad. But
a rest of several weeks in the balmy
air of Sarpy county will fix him allright.
Roy says that all the Sarpy county
people in his county are doing well.

Mrs. J. Sullenbcrger of Marsland
was iu Alliance between trains on Sat
urday. Mr3. Sullenberger is just re
turning home from a trip to north

states that she is glad to get back to

F. D. McMillan, who recently en
tered the employ of the Western Office
Supply company for the sale of type
writers, filing cabiuets, etc., reports
the sale of three typewriters the first
week out, besides other business, and
this is his first experience in trying to
sell typewriters. Pretty good for a
starter, we think.
In the rriarriage notice published
last week, in which the name of Rev.
J. K. Jordan appeared as the officiating
clergyman, we inadvertently stated
that he was pastor of the United Pres
byterian. Rev. W. W. Gordon is
pastor of that church, while Rev. Jor
dan is pastor of the Alliance circuit of
the Methodist church.
Mrs. J. Lockwood, having taken
charge of tho Hila Grand hotel, has
changed the name to "The Burlington,"
a very appropriate name we think as it
is so conveniently located near the new
Burlington station. The house will be
refurnished and made first class in
every respect and we predict a liberal
patronage by an appreciative public.
Another step towards making Al
liance a model city has been taken by
Mayor Smith in ordering the houses of
ill repute closed, aud the order is being
strictly enforced, so we understand.
These places have been a source of hu
miliation to the citizens who have been
sounding the city's praises, and the
closing of them seems to cause rejoicing
universal almost universal.
T. J. O'Keele has sold the Alliance
Herald and the names of F. A. Pier
son. Lloyd C. Thomas and John W.
Thomas appear at the mast head. As
the Herald is a good paper and a
m6ney making proposition we were
surprised aud sorry to learn of Bro.
O'Keef's retirement, but he says he
sold for good money and it is merely a
business proposition with him. The
new proprietors are making a good
it:-! y i oeje-u h:otjse!
start and will improve the plant if
there is room to do such a thing.
And now it appears that the good
people of Hcmingford do not tako kindly
to the reflections cast upon the citizen
ship of that burg by a certain would-be-funny
newspaper writer inhis spoil rela
tive to tho acquittal of John Anderson,
the druggist, who was tried iu district
court last week on tho charge of illegal
Belling of liquor. Tho writer of this
item knows nothing about the merits of
the case, more than what is indicated in
the verdict of the jury, but we arc told
that his fellow. townsmen consider Mr.
Anderson a law-abiding citizen.
At the last annual session of the
Northwest Nebraska conference of the
Methodist church Rev. J. L. Vallow
was elected delegate to the Nebraska
Church Federation congress, which is
auxiliary to the national organization
composed of representatives of some
forty different denominations. The
object of the congress is to promote
unity of action aud encourage a spirit
of harmony among the various churches
composing the federation. The object
is certainly a laudable one. Rev.
Vallow left Monday afternoon for Lin
colu, where the congress of tho Ne
braska Federation is being held this
''Mistakes occur in the best of fam
ilies," so of course wo can beg to be
excused if we occasionally make one
especially iu the rush of extra work at
the time of changing management of
the Herald. An aggravating mistake
occurred iu the ad. of Benedict, the
grocer, to which we wish to call atten
tion. Ho had a fine line of prunes
which he was selling at the extremely
low price of 18 pounds for fi.oo, and
wished to so advertise, but by a typo
graphical error the ad. said 8 pounds
for $1.00, less than one-half the
amount that he was actually giving.
We will do our very best hereafter to
avoid such mistakes.
