the above towns were
opened by the state board of education
at Lincoln, Tuesday. When Alliance
decided to compete for the state nor
mal school it did not expect to offer tho
bonus that Hastings and other towns
could do, believing that the logic the
state hoard would employ in determin
ing the location will be the greatest
good to the greatest area and numbers
and not the material advantage that
may accrue in a financial way to any
one locality. The committee submit
ted a brief with their proposition, which
brought out the most logical reasons
why the school should be located at
Alliance and we arc pleased to note
that in the selection of r site the hoard
will consider the matter as the fol
lowing from the State Journal would
gimSTION Ol' VALUHS. .
"Although most of the bids placed a
value on the site or buildings offered,
the board appears to take little stock
in computations of that kind. ' The
members will place their own value on
the property. Under the law the site
must not be less than twenty acres of
land, which shnll be worth at least S75
As the future needs of the state, as
far as state normal school facilities are
concerned, the tailroad facilities, the
geographical location and tho amount
of the cash bonus and many other
matters must be considered, it will be
a difficult matter for the hoard to ar
rive at a decision. ' Tho town that of
fers the most money may not be con
sidered a desirable location geograph
ically, and the towir that offers no
money, whatever may have many ad
vantages not possessed by some whose
bids appear to be better. At the out
set the board gave out hints that old
buildings were not so desirable as
one built by the board for the especial
pnrpobo for which it is intended. Some
have indicated that a town now pos
sessing a state institution would have
hard work to secure this school."
The board will visit each of the
towns which wjll require about thirty
days and a decision may not be an
nounced for a month or two.
Hon. M. F. Harrington Refuses Even
His Expenses for Fourth of
Tho accompanying letter explains itself.
In the present world it is the mark of a
superior man to refuse money that is justly
his. It shows in this sordid world of ours
that some may still be found whose souls
and minds are above price. Such men
are worthy of esteem and their friendship
is something to be treasured. The Her
ald in behalf of the committee and the
people of Alliance thanks Mr. Harrington
for this act of courtesy. The time may
come when we may repay this generosity
in a more' tangible manuer.

Ihey at once began a'search for her and a
reply from a telegram sent bv Mayor
Buechsenstein to tho mayor of Edgar
stated that she was there and had been
placed under quarantine. Miss Osborne
probably did not realize ihe danger to
which sho was exposing others while dis
obeying the law. The officers are to bo
commended for the way in which they
took the matter in charge in their efforts
to protect the public safety.
To the Public.
Iu the sickness, operation and death of
our beloved daughter, Addie, we believe
that we have had all the skill, forethought
and careful attendance that Drs. Mitchell,
Bellwood, Moore and her devoted nurse,
Mrs. Ingersoll, were capable of and that
no others or any surglcial hospital could
do any better. We firmly believe the op
eration to have been an unqualified suc
cess. Heart failure developed after the
operation and to Almighty God who in his
wisdom sent the electric storm which
frightened her into the fever which rcsult
ed fatally we ascribe tho result. To the
many kind friends who were so lavish in
friendliness, solicitude and beautiful
flowers, may we say, that when .sorrow
and death coma to you, may you, like
Addie. as peacefully and gently "go up
stairs and go to sleep."
