Iudustrliil School Journal. Kearney:
Sheriff E. P. Sweeney brought
a boy to the school from Alliance
Box Butte County, the first of tho
month. Box BuUo County is tho
home of this writer and ho it said
to the credit of the county that
only two hoys besides oursolf have
over been nent from thoro to the
Industrial School. We aro pleased
in this connection to chronicle the
fact that Box Butte county is one
of the best counties in the State.
She is entirely out of debt and
never had a cent bonded indebted
ness. In choosing county officers
the peoplo never follow parly lines
but select tho best men and
women irrespective of politics.
It is inhabited by a closs of public
spirited citizens who never take a
second placo in any good work.
This was amply demonstrated in
the recent contributions for the
rolief of Cuba. No two towns in
in tho State contributed as large
an amount in proportion to their
size as did Hetningford and
Alliance a fact' in which the
editor of the Journal takes con
siderable personal prido. Just
now these two cities tiro arguiug
the question as to which one
should bo tho county seat. Tho
question will probably be settled
without any armed intervention,
but we beg to point to Waco. Tex,
as on example to Editor O'Kpoffo
of Hemingford and Editor Broome
of Alliance whose respective
papers aro very 'varm reading
