Firemen Get a
From Fremont Tribune;
Smiling skies and mild spring weath
er greeted the delegates to the twen
tieth annual convention of the N. S. V.
F. A. as they swarmed into Fremont
on incoming trains today. All visiting
firemen who are official delegates from
their home companies are required to
register at the firemen's quarters at the
city hall before they are given badges.
All the visitors are being kept under
close police surveilance and the slight
est break on the part of any is followed
by arrest and prompt arraignment in
police court. The Cleland hose wagon
deprived of its cargo of hose and rigged
up with carry-all seats serves as the
patrol wagon and its gong sounded
incessantly in the streets all the fore
noon. City Clerk Stiles was the first
man to suffer arrest at the hands of the
special officers. He was caupht loiter
ing about the depot at 9:30 this fore
noon. A few minutes later he was
dumped bodily into the patrol and
taken at break-neck speed to the city
hall where Police Judge Laird sentenced
him to ten ays at Tommy Fox's. He
wab later paroled.
The diligence with which the Alii
mice, delegation proceeded to boost for
the 19 1 1 convention the moment they
struck Fremont caused the entire
hunch to be rpunded up by the special
officers- Several merry foot-races oc
curred before all the offenders were
arraigned before Police Judge Laird.
W. O. Barnes, first arraigned, was
charged with violating the curfew or
dinance and pleaded guilty to having
remained up until 2 a, in. last night.
He was sentenced to buy the treats.
E. G. Laing, another offender, plead
ed guilty to changing his hose too often
without performing the incidental ab
lutions on his pedal extremities.
Judge Laird commanded him to pur
chase six pairs of socks. One of the
most serious charges preferred was
that against F. McCormick, who was
said to have borrowed some hosiery at
Norfolk last year and had neglected to
return it. He escaped because Judge
Laird helc the case to be out of his
jurisdiction. Baskins, Roinig and Sny
der were charged with resisting an offi
cer as also was M, O. New whose case
was continued till 1 530 tonight.
Alliance and Vork promise to be the
two rivals for the 1911 convention, and
delegates from both towns have already
commenced a campaign for votes.
This is the first convention since the
8 o'clock closing law went into effect
and Fremont is the first place the fire
men have gathered in such large num
bera since that time.
Wednesday foreuoon there will be a
business meeting at the court house at
9:30. Wednesday afternoon the fire
men will be shown the places of tnter
est in Fremont, and Wednesday even
ing will be given over to a smoker at
the firemen's quarters in the city hall.
Daughters of Isabella Entertain.
On Tuesday evening the lodge rooms
and parlors of the K. C. hall were
filled with a merry crowd. High-five
was first on the program, nine games
were played, and there were sixteen
tables. Mrs. Chas. Breunan, Miss
Aylward and Mrs. U. N. Hoskins cut
for lady's first prize, a dainty china
plate, Mrs. Hoskins winning it. W.
A. Prindle won the gentleman's first
prize, a toilet set. Mrs. McCoy and
Walter Buechsenstein carried off the
consolation prizes. After the card
games were finished, oyster stews were
served. Denny Landrigan and Mike
Vaughn acted as head waiters and
covered themselves with glory. Danc
ing finished the evening. As enter
tainers the Knights and Daughters ate
Royal Neighbors Banquet.

Death of An Octogenarian.
Following a brief illuess of a few
weeks, Samuel M. Gleason passed away
yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Mr.
Gleason was 80 years old, and at the
time of his death was living with his
son, Earl F, Gleason, an engiueer ou
the Burlington. Death was due to
dropsy and heart failure.
The body was shipped to his old
home al Utica, Neb., on 42 for burial.
It does us good to report the
condition of the weather this
week. Barring the fact that the
ground has been covered with
snow, the weather the past week
has been fine for January. We
have been earnestly wishing for
the snow to melt so that stock
could have the benefit of winter
pasture, there being prospect
tli at but few farmers and ranch
ujon will have enough feed to
curry them through till grass
comes, if the snow remains on
much longer, The snow has
melted a little nearly every day
the past week, the most yester
day (Wednesday) when the
streets in town became quite
muddy. Today it is melting
more slowly than yesterday.
The snow still covers the fields
and prairie, with some bare
patches, but we are hoping for
enough warm weather to take it

More Local News
for The Herald
During the past year a number
of improvements have been made
in The Herald, particularly in
regard to educational matters
and the development of the
country along agricultural lines;
but we frankly confess there has
been one feature of the paper
that, owing to insufficient cleri
cal help, has not been satisfac
tory to the editor, and that is the
local news. This feature is to
be greatly improved.
"We are very glad to announce
that we have secured the servi
ces of A. E. Hayward, formerly
reporter on the Fremont Daily
Tribune. He arrived in Alliance
the first of this week and has
taken his place in our office and
on our reportorial staff. Any
assistance that readers of The
Herald may give him in securing
news will be greatly appreciated.

In addition to the magnificent Bennett Piano and
a large list of other valuable presents offered in The
Herald's voting contest, we make the following special
offer: To the first lady who receives 8,000 votes, in
cluding the 5,000 nominating votes, a ten dollar due
bill on any store in Box Butte county that she may
choose. To the first lady to receive 10,000 votes.- in
cluding the 5,000 nominating votes, a ten dollar du-?
bill on any store she may select in the county.
The lady receiving the first of these Special Premi

two due bills will go to two different ladies.
These two Special Premiums will not affect the
contest for the Piano and other Premiums, a list of which
will be published next week. The two ladies receiving
the two due bills can continue to contest for the other
