Stories of Alliance
and Box Butte County
While some of our Nebraska ex
changes are publishing a scries of syn
dicate articles, furnished them in stere
otype plates to advertise a neighboring
state under tho caption, "Stories of
Colorado and tho Rocky Mountains,"
we prefer to run a department of "Stor
iesof Alliance and Uox liutto County,"
illustrated with photographic cuts of
scenes in this part of tho west. Of
courso this costs much more aud re
quires more work to prepare, the
preparation of the other requiting no
work whatever on the part of the pub
lisher of the local paper; but we believe
the superiority of the home matter will
bo appreciated enough to compensate
for tho difference in cost and labor.
This week we give a photogravure of
a scene on the farm of Geo. E. Doug
las, southeast of Alliance, from n cut
recently made for Tho Herald. The
picture is that of an alfalfa field, show
ing last year's second crop cut for seed
and in the shock, Perhaps the ques
tion more frequently asked than any
other in regard to northwestern Ne
braska by interested parties in the
eastern part of the state is, "How
about alfalfa? Can that be grown
there?" It has been demonstrated that
it can be as successfully grown here
as farther cast where the price of land
is yet much higher than in this coun
try, and the photo cut gives evidence
of the fact.
Recently Mr. Douglas called at our
office with some bunches of tame grass
es that were simply fine. Each bunch
contained at least ten varieties alfalfa,
blue grass, red top, three kinds of
fescuo, timothy, orchard grass, oat
grass and broomo grass. It reminds
us ol boyhood days in Illinois to smell
the sweet-scented tame grasses, and
the pleasure was increased by knowing
that these grasses are beginning to be
grown so successfully in this county.
Returns to Alliance.
We are pleased to note that Mike
Vaughan, formerly a C. U. & Q. con
ductor running out of Alliance, has
sold his interests in Holt county and
returned to this city to go into business.
He arrived last Friday from a trip
through Idaho and other parts of the
west, on which he prospected for a
suitable location for mercantile busi
ness. Not finding any other place that
suited him as well as Alliance, he has
bought a half interest in Ferris Bros.'
store, the firm name being changed to
Ferris & Vaughn, as will be seen by
their ad in this issue of The Herald.
We predict for them a good trade,
which they are already beginning to
The People Who Publish the Paper.
The Herald received a very gratify
ing patronage during the month just
closed. Although the subscription
patronage is not the largest part of the
business, it is the basis, as stated last
mouth, aud as it increases the other
departments of the business will in all
probability increase correspondingly.
