A Kensington at the Broome House
The parlors of the beautiful Broome
home presented a gay scene Tuesday
afternoon, November 21, the occasion

Broome was the charming hostess.
Sixty-three ladies were present and
tuoraughly enjoyed every minute of the
afternoon. One interesting feature of
the afternoon was a contest to see who
could make the best button hole. This
was followed by a guessing contest.
For the button hole Mrs. Harvey Ellis
Node's Private Room Burglarized
Last Tuesday evening, probably be
tween five and eight o'clock, some person,
or persons, torced open the door to Mr.
and Mrs. Nohe's priv.e room in their res
idence, during their absence at the res
taurant, and took two diamond rings, a
pair of diamond earrings that were highly
prized on account of being an heirloom,
and a cigar box full of nickels amounting
to between thirty-five and thirty-seven dol
lars. Two men who had been in their em
ploy a couple of days, were occupying an
other room in the building, and were sus
picioned of perpetrating the burglary.
They were arrested and Marched, which
by the way seemed to be no new experience
to them, but the stolen articles not being
found they were released and permitted to
leave town, which they lost no time in do
ing. It seems probable that had they been
shadowed by a detective they could have
been canght digging up the stolen goods
before leaving for other parts.

pastor of the Baptist churches at that
place and tiering, has accepted a call

tend greetings and a most cordial wel
come to Mr. and Mr', McNeill, and can
assure them that they are coming to a
warm-hearted people who will make
their residence in Alliance delightful.

Excursion to Mexico
The population of Nebraska, accord
ing to a censuB bulletin issued this
week, is 1,102,214, a gain of lMtl4, or
11 8 per cent, over 1900. At the time
the enumeration was being made last
June we suggested that the Alliance
Commercial Club co-operate with the
enumerators in seeing that the count
be made complete; but what was every
body s business was nobody s business
and we predicted that Alliance people
would be disappointed when the census
reports were published.
The report by counties credits Box
Butte with a population of only 0,131
which is simply ridiculous. We will
havt more to say about this next week.

Bound Over to District Court
In another part of this edition of The
Herald mention is made of the lecture
given at the Opera House Tuesday night
by Mr. Almond, of Mexico.
Mr. A. M. Bowdish and L. F. Bowdish,
brothers, are special agents of the Mexican
Republic Colonization Company, of Kan
sas City, and are now arranging with a
number of Alliance people to go witn the
excursion on December lis! to Old Mexico.
Particulars in regard to the excursion will
be given in a later edition of The Herald
Prof. Williams Honored
Harry Wilson, a barber employed by
Nation and Copeland, was arrested
Thanksgiving night while drunk, charged
with shooting craps. He, with several
others, pleaded guilty, and his fine was
paid by Bates Copeland.
After being released it is charged that he
broke into the barber shop and took about
ten dollars in change. He then skipped
town and was arrested in Sheridan. Sheriff
Cal Box brought him back and lodged him
in the county jail.
The preliminary hearing was had before
County Judge Berry Tuesday afternoon,
and Wilson pleaded guilty to the charge of
robbery He was placed under $300 bond
and bound over to the district court.
It is supposed Wilson had a key to the
register as it was uninjured. However he
broke the lock getting into the barber
shop. Had he broken into the register the
charge could have been made worse

Prof. G H. Williams, principal of the
Alliance High School, has just been noti
fied that he has been elected president of
the Peru Alumni Association, at the annual
banquet and business meeting held in Lin
coln on November 27th.
This comes as a surprise to Prof. Wil
liams as he was not present at the banquet
and the position was entirely unsolicited.
The Association has over 1,200 members
and the election of Mr. Williams shows the
esteem in which he is held by them.
