Commenting on our article advocating
cating- consolidation of the various
stock associations in the northwest ,
: he Alliance Grip says :
While the association does not
amount to much in Dawes and Holt
counties , the associatiou in Box
Butte county is a pretty live one and
has made it possible for stockmen to
engage in business without fear of
laving their stock stolen and-that is
all that could be desired.
This is true , and we have advised
many of our friends to join the West
ern Nebraska , but nevertheless we
jelieve the interests of the stockmen
could better be subserved by consoli
dating. Something more than local
irotection is needed.

sisting of 51,200 square miles , for all

jeen made there is a chance to figure
as to the whole area of the Philippine
islands , of about 115,000 square miles
The figures of such a problem may well
make the American taxpayer gasp.

A SUCCESSFUL MEETING
Faces arc Good , but on Account of Weather
Attendance is Very Light
' Tuesday was the first day of the
Valentine race meeting , and opened
with a good string of horses present ,
but owing to the drizzling , cloudy
weather the attendance was small.
In the forenoon a half mile matched
race for $100 a side was run between
Frank : "Leahy's Francis Junior of
Ainsworth and Jim Dubray's Quinine
of Rosebud , resulting in a vicctory
for the former. This was followed by
a 300-yard dash , between two local
horses for $25 , and in the afternoon
the regular program was taken up.
The first event was a half mile repeat
for Cherry county and Rosebud horses.
Three heats were run , resulting
Prue's Greenwood first , Quick Bear's
Broncho Bill second , Bownet's sorrel
third. Time , 54i. While leaving the
track.Greenwood . dropped dead , hav
ing burst a blood vessel during the
heat. The second event was a quar
ter mile dash with six starters. Re
sult : Billy Bay's Gladys Wells of
Fairfax , S. B. , first ; Leahy's Francis
Junior second , This was a very pretty
race and was run in :24 : . The third
event was a mile dash and was won
by Bay's Glador in a walk. Dubray's
Quinine second. Time , 1:54.
Wednesday the weather was worse
if anything than the day before , but
the program was gone through with
just the same. The first race , a half
mile and repeat , was won by Billy
Bay's Glador , and the 600-yard dash
first money went to Gladys Well.
The half-mile dash for ponies was
won by Myrtle. S. , and the exciting
f qature of the race was the struggle
for third money , which was finally
captured by Jim McClean's "sheep. "
Yesterday was' * the last day of the
meeting , and despite the fog" ind (
clouds a large number of people attended -
tended the races. First event was
the novelty race for one and a quar
ter miles , $20 at each quarter.
Francis Junior and Gladys Wells
ma'de a hard race for the quarter ,
Avhich Was won by the former , and
also struggled for the half , but
Glador walked away with $80 of the
Money. Myrtle S. won the pony
race again , and as there was but one
entry in the consolation , the meeting
closed without excitement.
Altogether the meeting was a good
one , in spite of the weather , the
horses here numbering twenty at
least , and the crowd was an orderly
and respectable one. We have heard
no.complaints , and a great many dollars
lars were put in circulation which
would otherwise have remained idle.
Tjie arrest o ± the saloonKeepers for
gambling was the only disagreeable
feature of the week , and is greatly
deplored by most of our citizens. The
"Ainsworth horse" was traded to Jack
Button Wednesday fer a hall section
of Keya Paha land , and Billy Day
won every race in which he started
Stai cher's horses. From here the
horses go to Atkinson , and from there
