Death Claims a Shining Mark
Occasionally a death occurs which, on
account of the prominence ot the person or
the general estimation in which held, casts
a gloom over the entire community. Such
was the case when news reached Alliance
by wiro ot the death ot Mrs Danny Crib
ley at Helena, Mont., last Saturday after
noon. Cut down by the fell destroyer in
the bloom of young womanhood and the
love of young wifehood, when hopes were
high for a life of happiness and usefulness,
the sorrow of the bereaved husband and
relatives is beyond expression.
Alice Bridget Morris was born at lim
mcttsburg, la., Feb. 2, 1891, and was 18
years, 8 months and 21 days of age at the
time of her death. With her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Morris, stie catno to Al
liance nine years ago, and attended the
city schools hero till last year, and was
much loved and respected by her school
mates, who sincerely mourn her early de
mise. December 14, 1908, she was mar
ried to Danny S. Crilley at Billings, Mont.
Their home was at Helena, where her
death occurred as above stated.
The remains were brought to Alliance
on Tuesday, and the funeral held on Wed
nesday morning at 9 o'clock at Holy Ros
ary Catholic church. Requiem High Mass
was sung by Fr. McNamara, the Francis
can Sisters having charge of the choir,
after which interment was made in Holy
Rosary cemetery. Flowers in profusion,
testifying of the love and esteem of many
acquaintances were sent from Helena and
Billings, Mont., by the Knights of Colum
bus lodge of Alliance, by the young men
rooming in the Newberry block, and by
the senior class of the Alliance high school,
of which she would have been a member
had she continued in school. Twenty
seven of the senior high school students
marched in a body to the church to attend
the funeral. The pall bearers were Harry
Reardon, Joe O'Connor, Cecil Smith,
Walter Buechsenstein, Fred Carlson and
Abe Burchell.

the matter came to the attention of the

that if people indulge in horse racing
on Sunday, they have a right to do so,
providing they go to some place suffi
ciently secluded to not infringe upon
the rights of others, but that to pull off
