Prof. A. F. lialdridgc, formerly sup
erintendent of the Alliance schools, was
present Tuesday morning and seemed
much pleased with the interest mani
fested by both teachers and pupils.
The regular class work was complet
ed last week, and the last five days de
voted to regular institute work. The
instructors gave one period lecture
each morning and conducted examina
tions in the afternoon. The attendance
has steadily increased during the last
few weeks, there now being registered
High School Inspector Crabtree was
present Wednesday and read an inter
esting paper, " My First School." In
this he gave many hints as to the way
in which tlit difficulties attendant upon
the teaching of one's first school may
be surmounted. The paper was valu
able, being taken from personal exper
ience and not ideas advanced that were
purely those of thedry.
The county superintendents from
eight of the counties included in this
district have been present during the
week of institute work. They are H.
L. Fisher, Dawes county; Walter
Kent, Sheridan county; J. W. Baum
gardner, Box Butte county; Conrad
Parsons, Sioux county; H. R. Dellin
ger, Grant county: Mrs. W. E. Heard,
Banner county; Miss Alice Wilkinson,
Kimball county,, and Miss Agnes
Lackey, Scotts Bluffs county.
S. M. Smyscr visited the normal last
Friday morning and read a paper with
the, subject, "The Journey from Then
to Now." The paper was a fine one,
the main part being brought out that
if we take care of the Now, the Then
will take care of itself. After reading
the paper, Mr. Smyser carried the sub
ject btill farther- in an interesting talk
giving illustrations from his own
life. There was a general feeling of
regret at the close that this gentleman
had been unable to visit the school
'The Wesleyau quartette was greeted
by a large and enthusiastic audience
last Tuesday night at the opera house.
The singers are favorites with Alliance
people, having made many friends
during a former visit. The music was
of the best, the perfect harmony exist
ing between the voice which when
singing together has the effect of a full
chord on a perfectly toned instrument.
The solos were all given an encore to
which they pleasantly responded. In
the morning the quartette gave two se
lections for the benefit of the teachers
in 'the chapel room. We are proud of
Nebraska's teachers and of Nebraska's
The normal is over. An excellent
course of study has been completed,
and stronger teachers will return to the
schools in the different counties. It
has been a success in every way.
Teachers find schools waiting for those
who have made this effort. New
friendships have been formed and old
ones more closely bound together.
This success is due to several things.
First to the untiring energy, manage
ment and business ability of Prof.
Bartz, the principal. Second, to the
zeal, interest and up-to-date teaching
of the instructors, Miss Schlee, S. H.
Martin, Chas. E. Philpott and P. E.
McCoy, and to the earnest, hard work
of the students. The teachers, schools
and state will be better for this sum
mer school. Better for the lessons not
learned from books, but from associa
tion with each other and with those of
wider experience and greater learning.
These schools are the means of lifting
the profession of teaching up to that
broader level wheie it belongs and may
northwestern Nebraska be blessed with
many more, such as this has been.

who attended the junior normal:

The republican party of Box Butte
county met in convention last Saturday
for the purpose of nominating candidates
for the fall election. Some offices seemed
more popular among the would-be offic
ials than others. For some offices there
were several aspirants and for others it
was uitiicuit to linu a candidate who was
willing to be'snowed under at the polls.
On the whole the ticket proposed is not
considered strong. As in the last county
election, however, there may be surprises
this time. The republican candidate for
treasurer two years ngo was considered
the weakest on the ticket yet he was the
only candidate of his party elected over
his opponent the standard bearer on the
fusion ticket and his success was due more
to sentimental than party reason.
This yea he is trotted out as the
big drum of the g. o. p. band
wagon. The unexpected frequently
happens in Box Butte county. It there
fore behooves the fusion convention to be
very careful in the selection of its candi
dates. The people of our county vote in
county matters to a great extent irrespec
tive of party, If we nominate strong men,
they are sure to be elected.

provisions. They will camp a night
at Alliance. Captain Watson was in
command of the squadron here July 4, and
made many friends among our citizens.
He is one of the oldest officers at Fort
Robinson and recognized as one of the
ablest in the service.

companied from Omaha by her mother,

son will locate in the state of Washington.

many years and their departure will be re
gretted by a host of friends.

On the Racetrack West of Town
Thursday Afternoon, Aug. 20.
There aro n number of very promising
horses in Alliance, which are being trained
for the track and the owners thereof have
conceived the idea that by giving matinee
exhibitions occasionally sufficient interest
may be aroused to lead to the formation of
a permanent racing association for the
holding of regular races during the racing
season of each year. It is not the inten
tion to organize an association until after a
few races havo been held and 'people" have
a clearer view and idea of what a perman
ent association of this character means for
those loving to see good horse races. Next
Thursday afternoon the first of a series of
races will be hold. The following trotting
horses have been entered for races during
the afternoon: Margaret Lee, Agnes B,
Shaparone and Lady Clair, all owned by
J. R. Phelan; Carrie C, owned by Dr. E.
C. Koons; Lucy, owned by E. D, Moll
ring! Queen Cadery, owned by Simon
Spry; Black Lilly, owned by Taggart, and
Billie B,. owned by Williams. All of these
horses are of the 3-minute class and it Is
said they are pretty evenly matched. The
purses will be amount of gate receipts; Co
per cent first money: 25 per cent second
money, and 15 per cent third money. In
addition to the above, Helen G , owned by
Granger, will pace one mile against time
to beat track record. Morning Star, owned
by Mr. Phelan, will be on the track and if
there is no other horse present to make a
race, will run against time. At conclusion
of the races arrangements will be made on
the track for match races on some day in
the week following. This promises to be
a very interesting exhibition of speed and
an exciting time Is promised all desirous
of seeing the races. Charge for admission
will be 25 cents to each person entering
the grounds whether walking or riding nnd
and no extra charge for rigs in the grand
