ig Crowds Attend the First Annual Box
Butte County Fair,
Exhibits Good and Races the Best of the Year in
The first annual fair of the 13ox Butte County Agricultural
and Fair association has just passed into history, and we
think it is no exaggeration to say that it surpassed the most
sanguine expectations of the promoters.
As it was late in the season before the organization of a
fair association was set on foot, and almost time for the fair
before plans were completed for the same, the live stock and
farm product exhibits were necessarily few, but those entered
were good. In the races, however, this fair excelled many
that have been organized a great many years. "Johnnie"
Owens of Newcastle, official starter, has attended about all
the races in the Black Hills region so far this year, and gave
it as his opinion that Alliance was ahead of them all. Mr.
Owens and P. G. Cooper of Crawford, who was one of the
judges, showed their kindness to the association by taking
the unpleasant and trying parts without remuneration. The
Herald desires to return thanks to these gentlemen on behalf
of the Alliance people.
It is not possible for us to give details as to the winners
in the races and the exhibits this week, but will do so in our
next issue. We cannot in passing, however, but pay a compli
ment to Geo. A. Douglas, who so skillfully managed the
farm exhibit. It surely was fine.
Dave Lee and family from Broad
water attended the fair.
Prof. Hunt is to speak at the potato
carnival at Morrill, October 8th.
Mrs. L. M. Beal of Red Cloud, a
sister-in-law of Beal Bros,, recently
spent a day in our city.
John Brewer and Chris Abbott with
their families were among the many
people who attended the fair from
P. G. Cooper and W. VV. C. Caven,
agent for the John Deere Plow Co.,
are with tho Crawford boosters in at
tendance at the fair.
Carl W. Thomas left on 42 for a
trip east. He will take in Chicago
and visit relatives at Zenia, Ohio and
other eastern points.
Miss Marjorie McCarthy, reporter
for the Times, expects to leave the first
of next week for Mont Rose, 'Nebr.,
where she will teach in a parochial

Fred Mollring returned last Wed
nesday noon from Kansas City, where
he went to attend the funeral of his
brother-in-law, whose accidental death
by gun shot occurred last Friday.
Miss Laura Miller of The Herald
office returned Monday from a threo
weeks' vacation, which was spent at
her home in Albion, this state, and
with friends in different parts of Iowa.
Rev. H, Goodin, pastor of the Bap.
tist church at Chadron, stopped in
Alliance this week enroute from Bridge
port to Lincoln. He and Rev, Huston
had been attending a Sunday. school
convention at Bridgeport and they go to
Lincolnjp attend tho state
of Baptist churches.
Conductor R. J. Burke has just re
turned from a bH to his parents in
Lincoln. Ho reports Tom Burko very
prosperous on his farm and well pleas
ed with farm life.
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Fendrich of
Hemitigford were in attendance at the
fair- Mr. Fendrich is gradually im
proving from the serious injuries re
ceived several months ago in a runa
way. Mr. M. E. Gooch of Crawford is
visiting friends in our city and attend
ing the fair. Mr. Gooch and wife are
planning to spend the winter in Cali
fornia. They will rent their large
rooming house to Lincoln parties.
The iufant child of Mr. and Mrs. A.
Tcmpleton was buried last Sunday
afternoon, the funeral service being
conducted at their home by Rev. J. M.
Huston. The death of the little one is
peculiarly sad as Mr. and Mrs, Tern
pleton are strangers in Alliance, having
only recently arrived here.
We "acknowledge the corn" we
are short on local news this week. The
fact is, the entire Herald force has
been crowded to the limit trying to
accomodate those who have wanted
extra job printing on account of the
fair. It will take us a few days to get
caught up, but expect soon to be able
to give Herald readers as much local
news as heretofore, or more than ever
The Nebraska Laud Company's big
adof the Ford automobile appears in
The Herald again this week. In set
ting the type for this ad last week our
compositor used printed copy in which
there were a number of mistakes.
Most of these were corrected, but two
of them went through without cor
rection. In the New York to Seattle
race the Ford Model "T" car made
the 4,100 miles in twenty days and
fifty-two minutes, instead ot fifty days
and fifty-two minutes; and the price of
the Roadster should have been given
as 5825 instead of $850.
Emil Moll, state deputy of the W.
O. W., who has been at Scottsbluff
for some weeks past arranging for the
organization of a local camp at that
place, was in the city for a few days
this week, being in attendance at the
regular meeting of Maple Camp in this
city on Wednesday night. He reports
things lively in the North Platte val
ley. Mrs. Moll has been with him for
a week, looking the country over as

A Big Horse Sale
The Olson & McLain horse sale at
the Burlington stock yards in Alliance
last Saturday was one of the largest,
if not the largest, ever held in this
part of the west. It had been exten
sively advertised through The Herald
and by means of printed posters, and
aB a result a big crowd of interested
men attended. The horses proved to
be good stuff, as advertised, and bid
ding was active.
Before leaving Alliance Mr. McLain
gave us the following information:
Number of head sold, 278, including a
grade stallion which sold for ?:,ooo;
