Butte county is entirely covered with
telephone lines and with our fine roads
and good climate it is a very desirable

Of Interest to Stockmen
Prof. A. T. Peters, head of the de
partment of animal pathology, Univer
sity of Nebraska, has written The Her
ald the following letter which will be of
interest to stockmen and inline: s:
"April 6, 1909.
Editor of the Herald,
My Dear Sir:
Dr. P. Juckniess, the state veteri
narian, will make a tour of inspection
to ascertain the condition of mange in
cattle and the condition of other di
seases in the state. He will be in Al
liance on Monday, April 19, and will
hold a public meeting in the afternoon
to discuss these important subjects. It
is hoped that a large number of stock
men will be present at this meeting so
they can go over these subjects in de
tail and discuss ways and means for
eradicating these diseases, so that the
Federal Government will speedily re
lease our State from quarantine.
Dr. E. W. Howe, chief of the quar
antine division, Prof. E. W. Hunt and
Dr- A. T. Peters of the University of
Nebraska will accompany Dr. Juckniess
on this tour of inspection.
Hoping that you can give this duo
publicity, I remain,
Yours very truly,
A. T. Peters.
Recently the Crancer company placed
a half page advertisement exclusively
in The Herald for one week. Mrs.
Ross, the manager of the Alliance
store, informs our reporter that they
have already sold three high-grade
pianos as a direct result of that ad.
Does it pay to advertise? Does it pay
to plant seed when you want to grow a
No one regrets more than does The
Herald that any disparaging personal
ities were indulged in during the "late
unpleasantness" in Alliance. Why
some will persist in using that sort of
tatics when it is well known that gen
erally the cause of the one resorting
to them is tye most injured, is some
thing that not many have tried to ex
plain, The columns of The Herald
were open to both sides of the contro
versy for discusssion, and to a small
extent things of that kind crept under
the cover of correspondence, but wo
are glad to say that the editorial and
local news matter of the paper con
tained nothing of the kind regarding
Alliance people during the campaign.
If you have anything against any
body because of the work done before
election, drop it. Now is the time to
all pull together for the good of Alliance.
State Normal School
We cannot announce positively that
Alliance will get the new state normal
school, but we are confident that it will
be located here if the business men of
the city pull together for it. Much
more can be accomplished in this mat
ter by united effort than in any other
way. The Commercial club meets
next Monday night. That is the proper
body to outline the work necessary to
secure the school. We hope there
will be a full attendance at that time.
The Herald is at the service of the
club for anything it can do to help
along the good cause.
Taxes are due Nov. 1. Personal
