Alliance Commercial Club
Continues to Bo- Things for the Good
of the City
An interesting meeting of the Alli
ance Commercial Club was held on
Monday evening. In the absence of
both the president and vice president
from the city, E. V. Spencer was se
lected as chairman for the evening.
Several new members were voted in
and the normal committee gave en
couraging reports regarding the pro
gress of the work for the State Normal.
A letter from an Oklahoma firm,
relative to the establishment of a busi
ness college in Alliance, was read and
referred to a special committee.
An extended invitation from the city
of Crawford to the city of Alliance to
send a delegation to Crawford on July
4th with Governor Shalleiiberger on his
way through from Sidney was read to
the Club. After much deliberation it
was decided to accept this invitation
and as large a delegation as possible
will accompany the governor to Craw
ford and spend the day there.
Two proposed amendments to the
Constitution of the Club were , read.
One is a proposed change of meeting
night from the second Monday of each
month to the second Tuesday. This
will enable more members to be present
at the meetings. Another proposed
amendment includes the calling of the
roll of Club members at each meeting.
A committee of three was appointed
for the purpose of taking up the ques
. tion of having a big county fair at Al
liance this fall. This would be a fine
thing for the city and should be push
ed. Prof. Hayes stated that State Sunt.
E. C. Bishop would be in Alliance on
Thursday aud Friday. Plans are be
ing made for his entertainment while
A delegation from the Woman's Club

Stories of Alliance and. Box Butte
We have had engraved and copy
righted an outline map of Nebraska
and adjoining states showing at a
glance the importance of this city's po
sition. Now is an opportune time to
tenance of a public library. This will
now open the wav for a' fine public li
brary in Alliance. The Woman's
Club has started a library and the cir
culatiou has now reached the 4,000
Junior Normal Notes.
Enrollment to date is 196, of which
number 1C1 have eurolled for Junior
Dr. Baber of Lincoln, who was liere
last week attending the Northwestern
Baptist Association, visited the normal
Thursday morniug aud gave the stu
dents an interesting talk on school
methods. Dr. Baber was formerly en
gaged in the teaching profession and
was president of a normal school in the
south but withdrew from work on ac
count of his health.
So far as we have been able to learn
the enrollment at the various Juniors
at the close of the first week was as
follows: Valentine, 80; North Platte,
80; McCook, 136; Geneva, 172; Al
liance, 181. O'Neill and Broken Bow
each enrolled about 200, but each is
situated, in a verv large county where
the enrollment for institute would be
very large. Holt, the county in which
O'Neill is situated, has 319 teachers,
while Ouster, the county in which
Broken Bow is located, has 290. As
the fiist two weeks ot the normal con
stitute the institute for the county in
which the Junior Normal is located,
the enrollment in these two places
would probably be large on account of
the large number of teachers who
would attend institute only. We think
that when the count comes in for ac
tual Junior Normal enrollment Alliance
will be found near the top.
Dr. Eubank, a medical missionary
to China, was present at chapel Mon
day morning and gave a very interest
ing talk about the way a knowledge of
mediciue removes the prejudice these
people feel toward all foreigners and
thus paves the way for the introduction
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Prof. Philpott gave a chapel talk
Tuesday morning on the subject near

ers of physics in the state and what,

interesting aud inspiring.
The various religious young peoples'
organizations gave a reception to the
faculty and students of the Junior Nor

a very enjoyable evening was spent by
The Woman's Club of the city has
very kindly extended the use of the
city library to the Junior Normal stu
dents while in the city, an act of kind
ness which will, undoubtedly, be great
ly appreciated by the students.
Deputy State Superintendent Perdue
was in the city Tuesday aud Wednes
day for the purpose of inspecting the
Junior Normal school. He s,eemed
highly pleased with the management
and spirit for work that prevails and
said that, without doubt, wc have the

very pleasant chapel talk on Wednes
