LEE ACHESON. Number 41 Is Held Up. When four or five miles out of Lincoln last Saturday morning at about 1:30 o'clock No. 41 was held up and .the express car robbed by three or fgurrnenjjbo seemed to know exactly how to do it. The train was stopped by a red-light signal and the engineer and fireman compelled to un couple the engine and express car from the train and run forward a shcrt distance. Express Messenger Lupton during that time took the valuables out of the local safe and hid them before he was compelled to open the car. The robbers then blew the through safe open and rifled its contents. The amount they got cannot be learned as the express company refuses to state the loss. The Burlington officials have stated that it was probably not less than $2,000, while other estimates place it in the neigh borhood of $30,000. The latter seems likely to be more nearly correct than the former, which is an extremely low estimate, for it is unlikely that the robbers would attempt a hold-up unless they had a tip that they would be well paid for the work. The express car was injured to such an extent that the train had to return to Lin coln. None of the passengers were mo lested and noPone was injured, not a shot being fired. A. reward of $1,000 for each man has been offered, but it does not seem likely that they will be apprehended. This robbery occurred at almost the same spot and much in the same manner as one which was made about a year ago, and it is likely it is the same gang who did it.

WILL HE GONE SIX .MONTHS OK MORIS Rev. Dr. Horn, Exclusive Special Corres pondent of the Herald Reaches Denver. First Letter Received. Denver, Colo., Octo 16, 1902. From the coppor-tocd-days of my boy hood, talcs of travel have been the very soul of fascination to my venturesome spirit. HaviDg read all the books on travel available within a considerable radius from my Ohjo home, I sought in terviews with every man I could reach who had crossed any state line, or could relate thrilling stories of adventure on the part of others. My curiosity to know more of the world was augmented by the recital of wierd stories by an old Mexican soldier who visited Us nbout the timo of my grad uation from tho first to the second reader. His renditions produced in me a longing similar to that possessed by the poet who wrote: "Oh for an old gray traveler '. By our winter fire to be, To tell us of each foreign shore, . Of sunny seas, and mountains hoar, Which we can never seel "And O, that such old man were here, With his wiso and traveled look, With thought like deep cxhaustless springs; And memory full of wondrous things, , Like a glorious picture bookl" As nothing short of a tour of tho earth offered me any degree of satisfaction,' I decided to attempt tho task regardless of the expense and other difficulties which towered before me. Consequently the succesful carrying for ward of my plans made it possfble for me to bid farewell to Alliance at 3:40 Thurs day morning, October 16, while Victor was sleeping soundly unconscious of the fact that his papa was kissing him good bye and beginning the largest undertaking in the realm of travel possible to man with out embarking upon that better journey leading to a country whence so traveler returns. The young wife evinced bravery by with standing the avalanche of tears due to be observed on such an occasion. She was cbgnizant of tho danger confronting me; but her noble christian life and devotion to tho God, she serves, long ago taught her that my trust was in the God of the Psalmist: a God which doeth all things well, though at times our short-sightedness fails to penetrate beyond the over-hanging' clouds of gloom which often encompass our horizon. "If I take tho wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me." My departure from the city with whose history I had been identified for so many yearswasnot without sorrow. I had learned to love our "Magic City of the Prairie " Tho fidelity of her progressive business men to the every interest of the city de serves commendation. The praiseworthy pluck of the faithful has placed Alliance second to no other city in the western two-thirds of Nebraska; in short Alliance is without a rival along the line of the Burlington R. R. reaching from Grand Island, Nebraska, to Billings, Montana, a distance of 745 miles. And almost mid way between Deadwood, S. J?., and Den ver, Colorado, Alliance proudly sits with out a peer, and "Queen of te Plains" for 450 miles, the distance between the two larger cities, one to the north, the other to the south. The ride into Colorado was vithout in cident with the following exceptions: The' train was two hours behind time and con tained a btidal party which was forced to endure much additional pandemonium at the hands of the Alliance youths on ac count of the lateness of the train. Ap proaching Denver, the sun rising toward its meridian height darted its rays athwart the snow capped Rockies and kissed them into glistening splendor. The prssengers crowd to the right side oi thr ca- to behold the majestic snow drifts piercing the very heavens with their snow crested summits. There is Pike's peak eighty miles to the southward, rising as a giant guardian of the white Hock, basking in perpetual rest, with its topmost rock 14,147 feet above sea level. Yet it is not the highest of the Rocky family, there being twenty five other peaks that rival it in hight. Di vorced from its grand mountain scenery, Denver takes high rank as a city. I shall not attempt to describe its numerous in stitutions of note, its smelters, wholesale houses, factories, colleges, churches and sanitariums. One person has named Den ver the "City of Consumptives" because of the multitude of consumptives who come here for relief. Those whose time is limited can cover this city of 150,000 souls reasonably well in a few hours' ride on the special car called "Seeing Denver," which leaves the union depot on Seventeenth street daily at 2 o'clock for the grand tour of the city. The circuit covers twonfy-fivo miles and tho charge is t wontyfivo cents, A lecturer accompanies tho car nnd points' out objects oil interest, giving in addition thereto, a very good description of that which Is most notoworthy. E. C, Horn, DEATH OF MRS. JHSSISLU One of Ilox llutto's Pioneers Dies after n I I.ohr Illness. t After a long illness with dropsy and heart trouble, Mrs. W, A. Blssoll died in this city last Sunday morning, October 12, 1902, having been brought hero several weeks ago in the hopo that the treatment she 'could receive hero might benefit and per haps cure her; but hor case was beyond medical aid. Mrs. Blssell came with her husband to Box Butte county in 1885, locating on their ranch northeast of this city, and thoy have been prominent people iu the county's his tory. Mrs. Bisscll was possessed of most womanly nud christian graces of character, .and tho friends who know and loved her were numbered only by the number of her acquaintances. She was born July 19, 1847, in Ontario, Canada, and as Miss Eliza J. Knapp was married to Mr, Bisscll in 1867. SSuneral services were held at the Moth odlst church, of which she was a mombor, 'at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Horn. A largo .number of friends of tho family attended the last sad rites. Besides her husband three daugaters are left to mourn her death. Thoy are Mrs. F. M. Snedeker of York, Mrs. Brad ford tenner of Dunlap, and Mrs. HarVey Allison of Lakeside. The Herald joins their many friends throughout this section of the state in sympathy for the sorrowing family. HECETIoTrTODRjiToRN. Many Friends Assomblo to Wish a Safo and Pleasant Journey. Tuesday evening of this week marked one of the most pleasant social functions of the season. The occasion was a farewell reception to Rev. Dr. Horn, prior to his starting on his tour around the world, and was given at tho elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Norton, the latter being as sisted by Mesdames Bellwood and Lester in the reception of the nearly one hundred guests who jgreeted Dr. Horn, and then waietpresented to Rev, M. L. Sanders-of the Iowa conference, who will have charge of his church during the doctor's absence. An excellent musical and literary pro gram was rendered, after which Mr. Alex. Muirhead in a ftw well chosen words spoke of the high esteem in which Dr. Hprn is held and of 'the appreciation of the work he has accomplished here, and bore ' to him the united wishes of tho assemblage for a pleasant and prosperous journey and safo return. Light refreshments were served and after spending a social hour together the guests dispersed. Just before the good-byes were said the company joined in singing the hymn "God Be With You Till Wo Meet Again," which so perfectly voiced the pray ers of Dr. Horn's friends nnd congregation. Obituary. Leslie W. Nason, a son of Mr, and Mrs. M, P. Nason, living about twelve miles northeast of the city, died Monday after noon from congestion of the brain, the result of a run of typhoid fever. He was born in Eaton, N. H February 25, 1871, but had npent the most of his life here, I113 father being one of the early settlers of the county, and he was well known and well thought of. He was a member pf the Methodist church and left the splendid testimony that he was ready for his trans ition. Funeral services were held at his late home at 10 o'clock Wednesday morn ing, conducted by Rev. Dr. Horn, friends from Alliance furnishing the music for the service. The young man's parents and two brothers are left to mourn his death. They have the sympathy of the many friends who have long known them and the worthy son and brother in this hour of sorrow.

None of them have any use for the paper politi cally but they know just where it stands, and they like its news service. They like it particularly in that they can rely upon what it says.
