Proposed New Building for Alliance

of Every Loyal Citizen
LET EVERYBODY BOOST FOR IT
No. Mill, the editor or Tin- Herald
has not been writing editorials for
other newspapers lately, and knew
nothing of the contents of the arti
cle to which you refer until after It
had been published in Dint apei . By
the same token, no one but the ed
itor ha been writing editorials for
The Herald lately, t un our esteem
ed contemporary up the etreet say
The editor of The Herald never
gambles for heavier stakes than
doughnuts, lonce does not wish to
lut on subscription Hats; but we
have the following proposition to
m.ike to the esteemed editor of the
Semi-Weekly: If he will show us in
any recent issue of this paper any
statement in which any one was nam
ed as having subscribed, but who had
not, we will make him (the S.-W. ed
itor I a present' of the price of a
year's subscription to pay him for
Perhaps the people of Alliance do
not fully realize the Importance of
the imminent now on foot to erect
a suitable Y. M. ('. A. building In
this city. The early closing of sa
loons, the working man's club, is all
right; and the surveillance of other
places where young men, and older
men, too, congregate to spend their
evenings and Sundays, may be prop
er: but effort to Improve the so
cial conditions of men that stop with
the above fall far short of meeting
the requirements for successful work
along that line. You can't save men
from evil ways by turning them out
on the streets. 5ive them a place
o go -a place to enjoy themeles
without injury to themselves, a
place where they can be entertained
under wholesome Influences.
Let everybody set interested in
this matter; and It's a matter that
will interest almost everybody. If
properly presented. If we may ven
ture a suggestion to the committees
who have the work In hand: Give
everybody chance to Help. Take
It for granted that all are interested,
(live the man of small means the
same opportunity to help that is ex
t nded to the man of wealth. The
poor mam's dollar contribution may
not buy many bricks for the build
Ing, but it will mightily Increase his
Interest In it, and Is deserving of
the same praise that the thousand
dollar contribution receives. It may
require as much sacrifice on the
part of the giver. Don't pass up a
man because his business may Ken
to not comport with V. M ('
work. Give him a chance. It will
do him good If he helps. Go to the

Purity in food, lower cost of living
these are the demands of the day.
Pure food is health, and health is economy
itself. We cannot have health without health
The most healthful foods are the quickly
raised flour foods biscuit, cake, muffins,
crusts and other pastry, when perfectly made
from wholesome ingredients.
Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these
foods in specially attractive, appetizing and
wholesome form, and for both economic and
hygienic reasons, such food should be more
largely substituted for meat in the daily diet.
But bear in mind that alum, or
unwholesome baking powder,
can never make pure, whole
