In all their remarks the one thing was
evident, potatoes ami their seeding,
-planting and care. Dr. Werner gave
many illustrations in which all tended
to show without fail that northwest
Nebraska had it over the rest in po
tato raising. He also spoke of the ex
act way to care for the seed before
planting, dipping, sorting ami cutting
the care in planting, cultivation and
care after the potatoes were in full
growth. It is thought that next year
there will still be better and more

Alliance Men Go to
Scottsbluff to See
McKinncy in Action
A number of Alliance baseball play
ers and fans attended the ScottsblufT
Casper Midwest league game at
ScottsblufT last Sunday, largely to see
Pitcher McKinney, until last week star
twirler for the Alliance team, in ac
tion. Among the Alliance men who
werft on hand wr.cr. the umpire called
"Play ball," were: John Williams,,
Hill Tragesser, Carl Hockey, Jack
Kane, Frank Puechsenstein, Frank
Hrennan, Fred Hayes, George Staf
ford, Dewey Donovan, Charley GrifTis,
Noel Young, Kay and La Verne Duller.
McKinney pitched a fine game, al
though ScottsblufT lost, 3 to 2, after
ten innings of hard playing. The
Casper men got but six hits off tlx
former Alliance artist. In one of tlu
innings McKinney threw only three-
I balls, two of them flying out and the

We have the trenches on Missouri j
and Yellowstone avenues from Eighth
to Tenth streets rady to lay the 4-inch
mains. The rains this morning may
delay us somewhat in laying the pipe, j
We are having considerable trouble
finding the original survey stakes in
this territory. We must know accur
ately where the lot lines are in order
to place the pipe in its pioper loca
t;on. There is one-half block of
ground including Mississippi avenue
from Seventh to Tenth Ftreets which
has nver been platted. The land sold
in this location has been dscr.bed by
muts and bounds. It will be nocesary
to have this fixed up before we can
complete the water mains in thi.s ter
ritory and it may delay us somewhat
without our work. So far we have not
beene abl to get Helmont addition to
check out as platted without encroach
ing a litt'e upon Seventh and Tenth
streets. Should wi be able to locate
the original survey marks on Tenth
.street it may check out. A great many
people do not realize the importance of
preserving these old survey stakes.
The original stakes are worth consid
erable more than new stakes will be
and whenever an old stake is replaced
with a new one there is always a
question in the mind of tlu engineer
as to whether it is correct. Whenever
these original stakes are destroyed it
makes a lot of extra work and ex
pense for those who follow and have
work on the stieets to do.
