The above list does not include the
eighth grade graduates from St. Agnes'
academy, the examinations of which
has not been completed hut which so
far as it has been given shows splendid
work, so we are informed by County
Supt. Phillips. Last year there were
sixty eighth grade graduates in the
county. The above lists show eighth
six and there will bo enough from the
neademy to make the total consider
ably more than one hundred, nearly or
quite double that of last year, This
showing is certainly very encouraging
to persons interested in the educational
progress of this county as well as in its
development otherwise.
Junior Normal
Opens June 7th
The seventh annual session of the
Alliance Junior Normal will open Mon
day moruiug, June- 7U1. Conditions
are very favorable for one of the best
sessions this summer in its history.
The interest shown by tho citizens of
Alliance has contributed largely to the
success of tho normal in the past, and
there is no doubt that greater interest
will be shown this year than ever be
fore. While the school is essentially .1
school for the preparation (or teaching,
there will be subjects offered that will
be of great cultural value to any one
who may wish to attend. A number
of persons in Alliance and surrounding
territory have signified their intention
of enrolling to take advautage of the
work offered in English literature and
other cultural subjects, persons who
have no intention of teaching. Others
are going to enroll to review the com
mon branches that will bo taught
The school offers an opportunity to
high school students who may need to
make up work to enable them to grad
uate. Those who will enroll locally will
find it to their advautugo to enroll on
Saturday afternoon. This will also re
lieve the congestion that is almost in
evitable on the opening day, Monday.
Those enrolling will receive a season
lecture and entertainment course ticket
free. This will admit to all lectures
and entertainments during the session.
Season tickets to the Entertainment
course will be sold at one dollar.
There are but three numbers on the
course this year, but they are the best
that could be secured.
They are The Parland Newhall Con
cert Company, Adrian M. Ncwens, Im
personator and Entertainer, and Gov
ernor Ashton C. Shallenberger.
There is no period in the history of
the normal where loyalty to'the school
will be of such consequence as this
Secure your season tickets at once
at Holsten'8, or of Supt. D. W. Hayes.
The first number of the course will be
June 10 th.
Automobile Business Booming
There is something doing now right
along in the automobile business in the
machines handled by James Heeler,
the Reo and Buick. On Wednesday
of last week he sold a Reo to Nels
Worley hut before he had time to get
another from the factory the Bridge
port livery man, Fred Reddish, ordered
one of the same make nnd wanted it
delivered immediately. Mr. Worley
being an accomodating man consented
to let Mr, Reddish have his machine
and he would wait until another arrived
which was Wednesday of this week.
Mr. Keeler is now trying to guard
against getting caught without plenty
of machines on hand and has accord
ingly ordered five Reo and three Buick
machines shipped to him direct from
the factories. He expects them to
arrive this week, when he will be in
shape to fill orders again on short no
tice. Both the Reo and Buick are very
popular machines and it is uot sur
prising that so many of them are being
sold here.
I wish to announce to the people of
Alliance and vicinity that I have pur
chased the office location aud practice
of Dr. Thos. Allen aud am prepared
to do all kinds of dental work in a
careful and first class manner; Dr.

The People Who Publish the Paper
It is customary for n newspaper to
print in an appropriate place in its J
columns thu name of the publisher,
but tho real publishers of tho paper
the people who are back of it are
those who patronize it. They deserve
to have their names published occasion
ally just as much as tho nominal pub
lisher's It is not possible now to
mention all who have recently given
encouragement to The Herald by their
patronage, but we take pleasure in ac
knowledging as we can some of the
patronage that keeps our press going.
Usually advertising is the best pay
ing patronage of tho local newspaper,
but the subscribers to the paper make
the advertising profitable to the adver
tisers; hence the support of the publi
cation comes either directly or indi
rectly from its subscribers.
The Herald has a large and increas
ing number of" loyal subscribers. We
arc pleased to acknowledge receipt of

The large mail order houses of Chi
cago have now turned to the country
papers with their advertising and we
will have a chance to see how many of
the editors who are howling their heads
off about the mail order business will
run the advertising. Then, too, we
will have a chance to see how well the
home merchants will patronize the
papers which refuse the ads which
would be cash to them but injury to
the home merchants. Everybody
watch. There is always two sides to
every question. Cuba, III,, Journal.
