When the Alliance Commercial club
at its meeting on the 14th inst. voted
to organize a county fair association
and appointed a committee to make the
preliminary arrangements, n ball was
started rolling that will without doubt
be by far the biggest thing of the kind
that ever struck western Nebraska.
I. E. Tash, Prof. E. W- Hunt and
Geo. Douglas are the committee, and
the Club certainly made a happy se
lection. Prof. Hunt and Mr. Douglas
have been working up an intei est amoug
business men and farmers by calling
attention to what can and should be
done, and how to do it; and Mr. Tash,
who has a reputation for thoroughness
and accuracy in detail work has drawn
up a constitution and by-laws for a
county agricultural and fair association,
in harmony with the provisions of the
state law for the organization of such
After having outlined the plan for
the organization Mr. Tash began a can

Box Butte County Map
For several years past the real estate
men of Alliance and Hemiogford have
been sending to Des Moines, Iowa for an
outline map of this county. Pursuant to
The Herald's policy of holding as much
work and business at home as possible,
the editor has had engraved a map of Dox
Butle that is a great improvement over
the one furnished by the Iowa printing
Real estate men who have been shown
the maps that we are printing express
themselves as being much better pleased
with it than with those that they have
been using heretofore, The making of
this map has entailed a considerable ex
pense and it will be necessary to print a
number of good orders before there will
be any profit; but whether we make any
thing out of it or not, there is some satis
faction in adding a little to Alliance enter

Alliance Junior Normal j June 7-
Notcs by The llcrald's Special Correspondent 1909
Mrs. Woodward, wife of Prof. Wood
ward, and their two children, arrived In
Alliance last Sunday.
Rev. Calhoun of the United Presbyter
ian church of Torrington, Wyoming, was
present at chapel Monday and conducted
the devotional exercises.
Rev. W. W. Smith, field secretary for
Hastings College, visited the school Mon
day and made an inspiring address to the
students at chapel period.
Miss Strong, one of the teachers of the
Alliance city schools, and Miss Schmale of
Lincoln, who is visiting friends in the city,
visited the normal Wednesday. We are
always glad to have those who are inter
ested in education visit us,
Mr. Carroll, Mr. Price, and Mr. Ward,
farmers from this county, visited the school
Wednesday and were highly pleased with
the work they saw being cjone, especially
the work in agriculture. This work ap
peals to farmers because they realize a
young man can learn In a short time at
school many facts of practical value to the
farmer that it has taken them many years
of experience to learn.
Superintendent Jennie M, Ellis of Dawes
county, who will bo remembered by many
of the students as having brought many of
her teachers with her to attend the Junior
Normal last year, and who is one of the
county superintendents who helped to make
last year's session a success, was married
June iG to Mr. Llndley W. Garton. The
happy couple will be at home in Crawford
to their friends June 20.
The normal students enjoyed a rare
treat Tuesday morning In hearing Misses
Tiller and Parker of the Wesleyan School
of Expression read several selections.
These young ladies were in the city for
the purpose of giving an elocutionary en
tertainment at the Daptist church on Wed
nesday evening. Their visit to the school
was greatly enjoyed by the students who
hope they may find it convenient to visit
the school again at some future time.
The enrollment to date is 205. This
number includes the institute enrollment
as well as the Junior Normal enrollment.
While our enrollment for Junior Normal
and Institute is not so large as one or two
of the Junior Normal schools, our enroll
ment for the normal proper is the largest
in the state. Principal Hayes has the offi
cial figures of the Normal enrollment at
the various schools and it can be stated
positively that the Alliance Junior Normal
is the largest Junior Normal in the state.

State Superintendent E. C. Bishop, who
is on a tour of inspection of State Junior
Normal Schools, was here last Friday and
spont the day Inspecting the work of tho
Junior Normal. This is the first one of
tho Normals he has visited this year and
was greatly pleased with the management
and largo enrollment. Ho made a very
pleasing address to the students at the.
chapel period urging the teachers to em
phasize the work in agriculture and manu
al training in their schools this fall, Mr.
Bishop went from here to Broken Bow to
Inspect the school at that place. He will
probably visit the school at this place again
during the latter part of July.
