SUPT. UKACKEN'S CAR DITCHED
Last Sunday No. 44 loft Alliance
about 8:30 p.m. in charge of Con. J. N.
Andrews and Eng. Geo- Reed. The
first warning thoy had of danger was
three miles west of Mullen, the train,
which was running about forty miles
an hour, giving two sudden jerks and
then coming to a dead stop. On in
vestigation it was found that Mr.
Bracken's private car and a dead head
coach, that was between his car and
the Omaha sleeper, were derailed.
No. 77 was thrown off her trucks and
lay on her side about sixty feet from
the track. Mr- and Mrs. Bracken
were in their berth about midway of
tho car and were unable to get out as
all the doors were wrenched and sprung.
Con. Andrews and Brakcman Vnughu
climbed up on the side of the car,
broko some windows and lowered
themselves into the car, They found
Mr- and Mrs. Bracken not seriously
hurt, although Mrs. Brnckcn was badly
shaken up and shocked but was brave
ly making the best of it. After con
siderable trouble somo clothes were
found and Mr. and Mrs, Bracken
climbed up to the top side of the car,
then down to the ground nnd were tak
en to the Omaha pullman. It was
bitter cold and all who' had to be out
suffered from it. Flagman Castle was
riding in the dead head coach and es
caped without a scratch, but later on
almost perished with cold as he had to
go back and flag for almost an hour.
On the Omaha pullman only the front
wheels of tho rear truck left the rail
and it was only tho work of a few min
utes to put down frogs and back onto
the rail, Had this broken rail happen
ed under one of tho head cars no one
knows how many lives would have been
lost. About eight feet of the rail was
gone. This was broken into pieces,
the longest ono not being eighteen
inches. The broken rail was soon
fixed so the main line was not blocked.
No. 77 is still laying on her side near
tho track. Mr. and Mrs. Bracken
were on their way to Chicago, but re
turned to Alliance on No. 41. The
colored porter, Mr. Curtis, was badly
frightened but came out without a

We all think well of the man who
keeps tho snow cleaned off tho side
walk in front of his premises.
Again we say, Stick a pin here; in
other words, remember this: Within
a few years the silo will be considered
an indispcusablo part of farm and
ranch equipment in this part of Ne
braska. It will be ono of the things
that will take a principal part in the
development of this country.
Wo may have our little scraps among
ourselves occasionally, but when it
comes to reaching out for some public
enterprise or institution for the good of
the city, you can depend upon it that
tho people of Alliance, under the lead
ership of the Commercial Club, will
pull together like brothers.
A Pleasant Surprise Party
A very pleasant surprise party was
given at tho home of Mr. August Mayer
and Mrs. Celia Weaver and family
near Berca on New Year's eve. Messrs.
James T. Nabb, P. J. Knapp aud Al
bert Gaghagen aud families with Rev
Ira E. Nolte made up the surprising
party, bringing their supper with them.
The surprised family was literally
taken by storm and so completely sur
prised they hardly knew what to do or
say. A very pleasant evening was
spent and shortly after midnight nil
were called to begin the new year with
a bountiful least in which two geese
figured conspicuously. Twenty-five
people were present and nil felt that
they had spent n very, enjoyable evening.

Depot Site at Gering
The location and plans for the Union
Pacific station grounds have been re
ceived from tho chief engineer's office
at Omaha, and contrary to what had
been generally nssumed, they show
that the station will be practically on
the old section line road instead of on
tho present road to the bridge. The
depot, as marked on the plat, will be
24x64 feet in size, exclusive of the
platforms, etc. Numerous reservations
are being made for warehouse spaces,
and from now on things'will begin to
get busy, since the atmosphere is
cleared of the question of location.
The upshot of tho station plan is sim
ply that we go ahead as we have start
ed out, and that we can all pull to
gether for the greater Gering. Gering

Among Our Subscribers
We" do not know precisely to what
extent readers of The Herald are in
terested in new subscriptions received,
renewals, etc., but to the publisher it
is quite an interesting subject, and we
may be pardoned if we use a little
space in making mention of the same.
While subscriptions are not the princi
pal source of the revenue necessary to
run the print shop and publish the
paper, they constitute the basis of tho
whole business. A good subscription
list is pleasing to advertisers as well as
to the publisher.

From the Hastings Kopubllcan;
Some of the towns in the west
ern counties of Nebraska are be
ginning to complain of too much
of the farming lands having
fallen into the hands of outside
land speculators who merely
purchase it to hold and speculate
on it in the raw, uncultivated
state. The business men and
the land agents in these western
counties should co-operate in
every way to have as much
the speculative class of lands
possible plowed and sown
wheat or other crops. The more
cultivated and crop-bearing land
about a town the more prosper
ous and the better the town. The
outside holders of farm lands
should be urged in every way
possible to have the raw lands
broke, sown to wheat or some
other crop. Such , lands would
then become producing and in
no small measure add to the cir
culating medium in that immed
iate town or community. What
western Nebraska needs is more
