The Best Flouu on
Earth: 'sSbld M
Number 41 Is Held Up.
When four or five miles out of Lincoln
last Saturday morning at about 1:30
o'clock No. 41 was held up and .the express
car robbed by three or fgurrnenjjbo
seemed to know exactly how to do it. The
train was stopped by a red-light signal and
the engineer and fireman compelled to un
couple the engine and express car from the
train and run forward a shcrt distance.
Express Messenger Lupton during that
time took the valuables out of the local safe
and hid them before he was compelled to
open the car. The robbers then blew the
through safe open and rifled its contents.
The amount they got cannot be learned as
the express company refuses to state the
loss. The Burlington officials have stated
that it was probably not less than $2,000,
while other estimates place it in the neigh
borhood of $30,000. The latter seems likely
to be more nearly correct than the former,
which is an extremely low estimate, for it
is unlikely that the robbers would attempt
a hold-up unless they had a tip that they
would be well paid for the work.
The express car was injured to such an
extent that the train had to return to Lin
coln. None of the passengers were mo
lested and noPone was injured, not a shot
A. reward of $1,000 for each man has
been offered, but it does not seem likely
that they will be apprehended.
This robbery occurred at almost the same
spot and much in the same manner as one
which was made about a year ago, and it
is likely it is the same gang who did it.

Denver. First Letter
Denver, Colo., Octo 16, 1902.
From the coppor-tocd-days of my boy
hood, talcs of travel have been the very
soul of fascination to my venturesome
spirit. HaviDg read all the books on
travel available within a considerable
radius from my Ohjo home, I sought in
terviews with every man I could reach
who had crossed any state line, or could
relate thrilling stories of adventure on the
part of others. My curiosity to know more
of the world was augmented by the recital
of wierd stories by an old Mexican soldier
who visited Us nbout the timo of my grad
uation from tho first to the second reader.
His renditions produced in me a longing
similar to that possessed by the poet who
"Oh for an old gray traveler '.
By our winter fire to be,
To tell us of each foreign shore, .
Of sunny seas, and mountains hoar,
Which we can never seel
"And O, that such old man were here,
With his wiso and traveled look,
With thought like deep cxhaustless springs;
And memory full of wondrous things, ,
Like a glorious picture bookl"
As nothing short of a tour of tho earth
offered me any degree of satisfaction,' I
decided to attempt tho task regardless of
the expense and other difficulties which
towered before me.
Consequently the succesful carrying for
ward of my plans made it possfble for me
to bid farewell to Alliance at 3:40 Thurs
day morning, October 16, while Victor was
sleeping soundly unconscious of the fact
that his papa was kissing him good bye
and beginning the largest undertaking in
the realm of travel possible to man with
out embarking upon that better journey
leading to a country whence so traveler
The young wife evinced bravery by with
standing the avalanche of tears due to be
observed on such an occasion. She was
cbgnizant of tho danger confronting me;
but her noble christian life and devotion to
tho God, she serves, long ago taught her
that my trust was in the God of the
Psalmist: a God which doeth all things
well, though at times our short-sightedness
fails to penetrate beyond the over-hanging'
clouds of gloom which often encompass
"If I take tho wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me,
And thy right hand shall hold me."
My departure from the city with whose
history I had been identified for so many
yearswasnot without sorrow. I had learned
to love our "Magic City of the Prairie "
Tho fidelity of her progressive business
men to the every interest of the city de
serves commendation. The praiseworthy
pluck of the faithful has placed Alliance
second to no other city in the western
two-thirds of Nebraska; in short Alliance
is without a rival along the line of the
Burlington R. R. reaching from Grand
Island, Nebraska, to Billings, Montana, a
distance of 745 miles. And almost mid
way between Deadwood, S. J?., and Den
ver, Colorado, Alliance proudly sits with
out a peer, and "Queen of te Plains" for
450 miles, the distance between the two
larger cities, one to the north, the other to
The ride into Colorado was vithout in
cident with the following exceptions: The'
train was two hours behind time and con
tained a btidal party which was forced to
endure much additional pandemonium at
the hands of the Alliance youths on ac
count of the lateness of the train. Ap
proaching Denver, the sun rising toward
its meridian height darted its rays athwart
the snow capped Rockies and kissed them
into glistening splendor. The prssengers
crowd to the right side oi thr ca- to behold
the majestic snow drifts piercing the very
heavens with their snow crested summits.
There is Pike's peak eighty miles to the
southward, rising as a giant guardian of
the white Hock, basking in perpetual rest,
with its topmost rock 14,147 feet above
sea level. Yet it is not the highest
of the Rocky family, there being twenty
five other peaks that rival it in hight. Di
vorced from its grand mountain scenery,
Denver takes high rank as a city. I shall
not attempt to describe its numerous in
stitutions of note, its smelters, wholesale
houses, factories, colleges, churches and
sanitariums. One person has named Den
ver the "City of Consumptives" because
of the multitude of consumptives who
come here for relief.
Those whose time is limited can cover
this city of 150,000 souls reasonably well

Many Friends Assomblo to Wish a Safo
and Pleasant Journey.
Tuesday evening of this week marked
one of the most pleasant social functions of
the season. The occasion was a farewell
reception to Rev. Dr. Horn, prior to his
starting on his tour around the world, and
was given at tho elegant home of Mr. and
Mrs. W. W. Norton, the latter being as
sisted by Mesdames Bellwood and Lester
in the reception of the nearly one hundred
guests who jgreeted Dr. Horn, and then
waietpresented to Rev, M. L. Sanders-of
the Iowa conference, who will have charge
of his church during the doctor's absence.
An excellent musical and literary pro
gram was rendered, after which Mr. Alex.
Muirhead in a ftw well chosen words spoke
of the high esteem in which Dr. Hprn is
held and of 'the appreciation of the work he
has accomplished here, and bore ' to him
the united wishes of tho assemblage for a
pleasant and prosperous journey and safo
Light refreshments were served and after
spending a social hour together the guests
dispersed. Just before the good-byes were
said the company joined in singing the
hymn "God Be With You Till Wo Meet
Again," which so perfectly voiced the pray
ers of Dr. Horn's friends nnd congregation.
Leslie W. Nason, a son of Mr, and Mrs.

but had npent the most of his life here, I113
father being one of the early settlers of
the county, and he was well known and
well thought of. He was a member pf the
Methodist church and left the splendid
testimony that he was ready for his trans

late home at 10 o'clock Wednesday morn

from Alliance furnishing the music for the
service. The young man's parents and
