An editorial in last week's Herald in
regard to hypnotism was not intended
as a leflection upon any local enter
tainments that have been given in Al
liance recently. In fact it was written
without anv reference to or thought of
the same, The sentiments expressed,
however, we believe are correct, but it
would probably be more agreeable to
change the wording somewhat. Instead
of calling traveling showmen, who
practice hypnotism, "mountebanks"
it might sound better to call them
atnatures. With this change aud with
the above explanation we wish to let
the editorial referred to pass for what
it was worth.

Resignation of Division
We are always pleased to learn of
the prosperity of deserving persons,
but sometimes ptospcrity brings about
changes that are not desired by the
friends ot the parties making the
change. Such is the case of Division
Superintendent J. C. Birdsell. His
large and increasing business interests
at Edgemont, S. D., where he owns
the most of the township and several
irrigated farms near by, demand hjs
entire time and attention; consequently
he has tendered his resignation as
division superintendent, the same to
take effect December 1st.
Mr. Birdsell has been in the employ
of the Burlington railway company for
thirty years, having begun his service
as foreman of a bridge gang, after
wards serving as brakeman, conductor,
trainmaster, assistant superintendent
and superintendent, During their
residence in Alliance, they have made
many friends who sincerely regret to
see them leave.
Mr. W. M. Weidenhamer, from tho
Sterling division will take Mr. Birdsell's
place hero and F. G. Robbins, assist
ant superintendent at Galcsburg, will
take Mr. Weidenhamer's place at
Sterling. Mr. Weidenhamer has been
division superintendent at Sterling tho
past year and a half, previous to that
being trainmaster, at McCook. Mr.
Robbins was trainmaster at Sheridan
before going to Galcsburg.
Obituary Telling of the Death
Miss Nellie Allen
Nellie Margaret Allen was born in
Colorado Nov. 17, 1891, and died in
Alliance, Neb.. Nov. 18, 1909, aged
eighteen years, one day. She was con
verted to God and joined the Baptist
church at Boulder, Colo., in 1891. In
1904 she came with her parents to this
city where she united with the Meth
odist Episcopal church in whobe fellow-
ship she lived until her decease. Her
last moments were spent in prayer, and
in its atmosphere she passed into the
presence of Him to whom the voice of
penitent prayer is sweetest music.
That she had many appreciative
friends is attested by the large attend
ance at the funeral obsequies, which
occurred at the M. E. church at 2 p.
m., Sunday, Noy. 21, 1909. Interment
was at Greenwood cemetery where she
was laid to rest in the presence of loved
ones, who confidently expect to meet
her in glory.
It is gratifying to know that in the
celestial home criticisms, cold aud cruel,
carping and unjust, are never uttered;
the venomous tongue of the slanderous
gossip never heard.
The bereaved ones may be assured
of the tender regards of many who
"weep with them," as they mourn the
departure of their loved one, and "re
joice with them ' as they rejoice at the
thougjit of her final coronation.
J. L. Vallow,
Pastor M. E. church.
