pole of perfection in the putting up of
physicians' prescriptions I propose to tell
briefly here today,
I lay no claim to being the first white
man to put up prescriptions correctly. I
lay no claim to priority whatever, but I
do claim to put up prescriptions by a sys
tem in which all mistakes are avoided and
in which only the good points of my long
experience in the drug business are em

pharmacists I can take care of all your
business in a systematic way.

A luck of interest in the elec

many voters by the light vote
that was polled. Tho result was
about as predicted we mean
guessed, as we made no predic

that the total vote was lighter
than we had expected. "We
missed our guess the farthest on

favor of giving the present in
cumbant, who is serving his first
term, another two years; this,
together with the fact that tliG
democratic candidate was not
well acquainted throughout tho
county, gave the republican
nominee a large majority in the
country precincts, although tho
vote on that oftice was close in
Alliance. The defeated candi
date takes his defeat cheerfully
and is not knocking on anybody
because he failed in the election.
The democratic candidates for
treasurer, sheriff, judge, super
intendent of public instruction
and surveyor were elected, and
the republican candidates for
clerk, coroner and commissioner
received a majority of the votes
cast for those offices, the demo
crats having no candidates for
the last named office.

It is a pleasure to chronicle the wed
ding of another highly respected young
couple, one of whom, the groom, has
been a resident of this city for many
years. Last evening at eight o'clock, j
at the residence of the groom's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Russell, Rev, J.
M. Huston pronounced the words that
united for life the destinies of Mr.
Marion C. Russell of Alliance and
Miss Minnie M. We&tcott of Oshkosh,
Nebr. Only a few of the most inti
mate friends of the contracting parties
were present, including the parents of
the groom and Mr. and Mrs. C. J.
Stevenson, relatives ot the bride.
The happy couple left this morning
for their homestead, near the North
Platte river, fifty miles southeast of
Alliance, where they will make their
home. The Herald wishes them all
the happiutss possible to humanity,
and the prosperity which they no
doubt anticipate in married life.
Rev. Alvin L. Godfrey, a recent grad
uate of Xenia Seminary, at present sup
plying the church at Alliance, Nebr., is to
be married Tuesday, Oct. 26, to Miss
Maude D. Dloomfield, at the home of her
parents at Albia, Iowa.
The above is taken from the Oct. 26th
issue of the Christian Instructor, the of
ficial organ of thb United Presbyterian
church, published at Philadelphia. We
have no further information in regard to
the happy event, but suppose, of course,
that it occurred at the appointed timp, and
possible to get anything like
complete returns before tho of
ficial count has been made. Prom
what information we have wo
think probably there is about an
even break in this county on
candidates for tho supreme
court, while tee republican can
didates for regents of the state
university probably have a con
We have a page of state and
general olection news furnished
by tho American Press Associa
tion and sent out from Omaha
yesterday. Later news is to
tho effect that tho result' in tho
state is still in doubt, with tho
chances favoring the election of
Judge Sullivan and a possibility
that the other two democratic
candidates for justices of the
supremo court may have also
been elected. The latest news
that we have show Judge Faw
cett to be the low man of the
tlireo republican candidates, so
(hat if but two of them are elect
ed they will probably be Judges
Barnes and Sedgwick.
FollowingMs the unofficial voto
of Box Butte county offices, with
the vote on some candidates
missing in one precinct. Next
week we will give tho official
count, including the vote on can
didates for state as well as coun
hasten to extend congratulations and best
wishes. Rev. Godfrey has been pastor of
the United Presbyterian church only a
few months, but in that time has made
many warm friends here who will be
please to learn that he has taken to him
self a helpmeet, and we are sure will give
her a most hearty welcome to the city.

Tho extra work and loss of time from reg
ular work during a political campaign in
terferes seriously with the business ot n
local newspaper, One of tho things that
wo rcgrot most is tho unltentional omis

the most aggravating omissions of last

Cartoonist and Soloist
' The entertainment was well attend
ed, the house beiug crowded. The
turning of a picture of sublime art into
one of the ridiculous with only a few
strokes of the artist's pencil shows
better than can be told of the develop
ment of an artistic temperament by
hard study and porsistent effort. Mr.
Carter's last picture of the evening's
entertainment was especially worthy of
note, being a picture of pXsunset scene
in colorB with an American beauty rose
in the foreground, all of which was
drawn upside down.
The solo work fcy Mrs. Carter was
also very fine and shows exceptional
