"The Lyman Twins"
This company guarantees a produc
tion next Tuesday night, Oct. 26,
equal to, if not better, than the Royal
Chef. They want to play at the same
prices but the opera house management
insisted that it would be more satisfac
tory to play at lower .prices and .to a
, , ' , - - - .
larger house, and a compromise was
made whereby the best seats will be
held at 1.00; second choice 75 cents;
gallery 50 cents; children 25 cents, re
gardless of age. They guarantee to
use all of their own scenery and elec
trical effects. Seats will be on sale
Saturday morning at usual place and
one ticket for every seat in the house
will be in the box; f.rst come, first
served. The high school orchestra will
again play overtures, the company
carrying their own musical director to
play the show.

In 1859 he was drafted in the Ger

Walter, Ralph and Yettie. He lived
with his wife and children in Woodford
county till in December 1902, and in
1903 went to Nebraska and made his
home with his oldest son, Frederick,
of Alliance, Nebr., until January 10,
1904 when he filed on a homestead in
Duel county, where he lived until his
last illness when he went back to live
with his son, Frederick.
Deceased was a member of the Cath

Chadron Knights Initiate
Last Sunday was an eventful day in
the history of Chadron council, Knights
of Columbus, when thirty-two can
didates were initiated into the mysteries
of the order. The degree work was
put on by District Deputy J. 13. Ken
nedy of this city, assisted by W. J.
Hamilton, Jos. O'Connor, Harry Rear
don, Robt. Driscoll, and other mem
bers from Alliance in attendance. After
the degree work a fine banquet was
served at the skating rink that reflected
credit on the ladies who prepared the
bountiful feast. Among the speakers
of the evening were Father McNamara,
who gave an able talk 011 the Catholic
University project at Washington, Dr.
Weber, J. B. Kennedy and others. At
the conclusion of the festivities Chad
ron council in a body thanked the visit
ing team and other members of Al
liance council who participated, for the
kindness extended and many signified
their intention to attend the initiatory
work that will take place in this city
A Runaway Accident
Last Monday afternoon as Mrs.
Fred Davison was driving to Heming
ford with Mrs. Roy Hickcy's little boy
they met County Supt. Phillips driving
his auto. The loam was accustomed
to automobiles and seldom became
frightened, but in turning to one side
of the road the wheels of the buggy
ran up on a ridge, and the team start
ed up suddenly throwing both out,
breaking the little boy's leg. We un
derstand that Mrs. Davison does not
attach any blame to Mr. Phillips for

Alliance, -n. gaou mciury 01 mis Kinu,
manufacturing enough goods to supply
the demand within the patronizing
territory, would give our city quite a
boost, and we hope the scheme will
materialize. An expression of opinion
from our business men as to the feasi
bility of the proposition might help
the matter along.
If the factory is located here, Mr.
Orchowski will have the management
of it, but it will have no connection
with his tailoring establishment.

North-West Hotel and Cafe Under
Last Friday a deal was consummated
whereby Peter Rubendall became pro
prietor of the Hotel North-West, hav
ing traded some good Box Butto county
soil to T. H, Barnes for the furniture,
fixtures, lease and good will of the bus
iness. The hostelry was rechristened
Hotel Alliance, a name more appro
priate, whether it sounds better or not.
Mr. Barues had kept the house in good
condition, as is well known by persons
who havo patronized it under his man
agement, but improvement is the order
of the day with the new proprietor,
hence a thorough renovating was made
and opening was deferred till Sunday.
The first meal served wjib dinner,
for 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. It was intended
to serve dinner louger and ample
A Deserving Candidate
We do not wish to seem to give un
due prominence to any ouo or more
candidates, but there are some circum
stances wo bclievo that make it right
for us to make special mention of the
democratic caudidato for county clerk.
J. B. Kniest is n staunch democrat,
but in one respect he is "Roosoveltian";
ho is the head of n well respected family
and the lather of seven children. He
is a laboring man and cams his bread
and the other necessaries of life for
himself and family by the sweat of his
brow aud the labor ot his hands.
His love lor his children prompts
him to make every effort possible to
give them a good education. The five
of them that are old enough are now
attending school. Mr. Kniest has not
the financial nbility that will permit
him to stop work to make a canvass
ol the county in the'interest of his can
didacy, so while other candidates havo
put in days, or oven weeks, electioneer
ing, ho has stuck to his work as fore
man iu The Herald office.
He has net asked or even suggested
the writing of this article, but wo be
liovo that it is due him that the above
facts bo mentioned, and that our
readers be asked to give them careful
consideration and govern themselves
Miss Nina Boyscn, after thirteen
months' absence from the city, returned
this week and has resumed her former
position as lynotypp operator at tlm
In a letter to her parents .written
from Los Angeles, Miss Laveta Barnes
tells them she is homesick to return to
Alliance. There are some places where
the wind blows less and tho trees grow
larger and the climate is less variable
than in Box Butte county, Nebr., but
taking everything into consideration it
is hard, to find a country that is more
desirauloas a- place1- of residenco than
right here. .
Another real estate man has opened
up for business in Alliance W. R,
Drake and family, consisting of wife
and four children, artlved from Ard
more, S, D., last week and will make
Alliance their home. Mr. Drake was
ill the real estate business at Ardmore
and will continue in the same here,
having rented the upstairs rooms in the
new Palace meat market building for
office aud residence. He starts out
right by ordering his name placed on
The Herald subscription list, paying a
year in advance.
New Management and New Name
preparations were made to feed a large
number, but either the size of the
crowd or that of the appetites to be
appeased was underestimated, and at
two o'clock it w,as necessary to shut
down, turning away a large number of
people who wished to partake of the
fine turkey dinner.
Under the new name and new man
agement the hotel will be continued on
the European plan; the guests may
take their meals at the cafe in connec
tion or not, just as they choose. Rooms
will be paid for at the office and meals
at the cafe.
Hotel Alliance not only starts out
with a good cafe patronage, but the
rooms have all been ocoupied eaah
night since the opening.
The agricultural area surrounding' BLACK
FOOT is not surpassed, if indeed it is equaled,
anywhere. Enormous yields of grains, spuds,
grasses and especially alfalfa, are made, and
apples and other fruit attain the degree of per
fection that has made Idaho famous.

Returns from a Delightful Trip.
Miss Inice McCorkle returned yes

eral months along the sun set side of
the Rocky mountains, having left Al
liance June 1st in company with Miss
Kathryn Roddy who went to Delling-
ham, Wash., to accept a position as
primary teacher in the schools of that
city. Miss McCorkle visited the most
interesting places along the coast from
Los Angeles, Calif., to Vancouver, B.
C, and reports having had the time of
her life, but was more than glad to
get back home. "The coast is' lovely,
but O, you Alliance," is the way she
expressed herself upon her return.

farm. It is certainly a fine speciman

will sec that tho price of 'cream is still
going up. Milkfng cows and soiling'

is'nt a bad proposition.
Many compliments have been heard
on tho excellence of the high school
