Dr. P.. C. Horn Soon toStnrt t'pou Ills Tour of the Earth. Residents of tho city of Alliance are pretty generally familiar with tho pro posed tour around the world of Rev. Dr. E. C. Horn, pastor of tho M. E. church of this city. It has been in contemplation and freely talked of for tho past three or four months. Tho reverend gentleman has conceived the idea of writing a weekly letter during his ramblings, in order that nta friends may keep step with him from the day of his depariutc until the hour of his return. That these letters will prove of intense interest there is no room to doubt, and that the Herald has been chosen as the medium through which these letters will bo disseminated will be gratifying intelligence to its renders. Rev. Dr. Horn is among the most able and polished wt iters in the state, and as his around the world tour will embrace the most noteworthy points of interest on record, those who arc for tunate enough to rend his articles will receive an introduction to tho world's history, geography and customs ap proaching a liberal education in value and interest. Having been nn instructor1 in two universities and having gradu ated from three, securing tho Ph. D. degree only a year ugo, it will be seen at a glance that Rev. Dr. Horn is abundantly equipped to write enter tainingly. His descriptive powers are of the very keenest. Following is a brief outline of the itinerary as planned, subject to slight changes, however, on account of the possible imposition of quarantine at certain points in tho Orient. The journey will be ever westward toward the land of the setting sun : Boarding one of the new, twin screw, steel ocean liners of the Japan-American Royal Mail Line, the broad Pacific will be traversed, reaching Yokohoma, Japan, from which a side trip to the empire's capital, Tokio, will bo made; also to Kobe and Nagasaki, tho latter having one of the best harbors in the world. Leaving this land of chrysanthe mums, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Ceylon and India will bo visited enroute to Egypt nfld Pales tine. A thirty-day tour through the Holy Land is scheduled, including Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, He bron, Bethany, Dead Sea, Jordon, Bethel, Samoria, Sea of Galilee, Naza reth, Damascus, Baalbec, etc., together with Cairo, Alexandria, Athens, Cor inth, Naples, Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, Como, St. Gathard, Lucerne, Paris, Heidelberg, Mayence, steamers on Rhine to Cologne, thenco to Brus sels, Antwerp, London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Liverpool, where the Atlantic voyage will begin via the White Star line. It is needless to say that the Her akd has not secured the exclusive right to publish tho letters of Dr. Horn without an outlay of a considerable sum the largest ever paid by a county seat weekly newspaper in the west for a similar service. There were others working every wire using every influ ence that could be brought to bear to secure them. But the Herald, as is its custom, appreciating the worth of such a globe-encircling correspondent especially one of such unimpeacha ble integrity of character and ability as a descriptive writer secured the prize by paying the highest prico for it. And now, then, let ua see how ninny of the citizens of Alliance and surrounding country appreciate an enterprising newspaper. If you want to keep pace with this distinguished citizen of Box Butto in his sight-seeing around the earth, it behooves you to subscribe for the Herald. Dr. Horn is to take his departure from Alliance Monday, Oc. tobcr 8, barring accidents. At the Methodist Episcopal church, Sunday, September 28, the Sunday school and League services will be held in the basement. No preaching service. The church edifice will be completed within five days so that the dedicatory services can be held in the auditorium, Sunday, October 5.
