to get persons from an irrigated district to
invest in their lands than it Is to get per
sons who know nothing from experience

of their lands.

County Supt. Morrison and Supt.
Pate went to Alliance Monday to pre
sent argument to the State Board of
Education showing wiry the new State
Normal should be located at Alliance.
Scottsbluff, Mitchell, Bridgeport and
other towns had representatives there
for the same purpose. The members
of the board said that letters from all
over this South Platte country urging
the location of the school at Alliance
had been coming into them in great
numbers during the last two weeks. It
means a great deal to Cheyenne county
to have this school located at the near
est point possible, Alliance, and we
hope the state board will decide to lo
cate the school there.

YOU can easily understand that in a business
the size of ours we can't tell exactly how
many suits and overcoats we can sell. Even if
we could we would buy more because it, would
be a funny looking clc thing stcre without
clothes, would it not? We have some beauti
ful goods left over that will make some men
happy. Better see them as we never carry
suits over from one season to another.
We have just closed our most successful busi
ness year. Our sales were a trifle better than
$10, 000. co more than in 1908. Quite a gain
in a town this size. When a business increases
like this one has there is a reason. It's no
secret just straight business. The reason is,
we are constantly giving more value for less
money that's true.
