D., beginning July 81. ihe gins Avill be taken to the Springs by auto mobiles, and the Elks committee, vrtrich stared a benefit dance to enable the girls to meet the expenses of the trip, is now engaged in rounding up car owners who will agree to donate their time and a few gallons of gas to nret the eirls there.

It's going to be the biggest trip ever taken by the girls, and more of them v Widt to ao than last year. when the camp at Belmont attracted j lot of them. Hot Springs has fur- uIim1 an ideal camoimr site, a fair fticfnnr awav from the city but with walkin? distance of the big -nlunge. The site contains benches for tK ramnprq. tables for their meals. on H on nHpnuate suddIv of water. T he Hot Springs chamber of commerce ha mrrppd to furnish the necessary firewood.

The Daily Program. At a meetinar of the guardians, held last Wednesday evening, the following schedule of each day's activities was trawn up. They're going Us hare t get up fairly early: in the morning, mt to make ud for it they will be per mitted to go to bed early. The schedule follows: 0 Arise at i 6:t- Salute flag and morning exercise 7:30 Breakfast 8:00 Tpnt InsDection 9:30 Hikes, swim, etc 9:30 to 12:00 Dinner 12:00 Quiet hour 1:00 to 2:00 Playtime 2:00 to 6:00 Supper 6:00 Omnril fires noocorn etc. 7:00 to 9:00 Bedtime 9:00 All quiet 9:30 The guardians also drew up a set of rules for the girls during their days in camp, which, it is announced, will be trictlv enforced. The rules were con sidered necessary because, unlike last year's camp, the site is fairly close to a town. The only punishment that will be administered to those' who violate the rules is banishment for the re mainder of the trip, and this punish ment is regarded as much more 6e than solitary confinement on bread and water. The Campfire Girls will have to abide by these: No suit cases or hand bags of any "kind allowed. Girls must pack extra supplies in knapsack made of heavy cloth. No girl is permitted to leave camp boundaries without special permission Irom her guardian and must report -when she returns. Absolutely no girl allowed in city of Hot Springs without a guardian from one of the camps. No girl is allowed dates with boy friends during the camping trip. This -outing is for the girls to all be to gether and outside interests are not to intrude. Essential Equipment. Each of the girls will take with her a considerable amount of clothing, bedding and other supplies. The list aa irawn up by the guardians, includes the following: High topped shoes. Bloomers or soldier trousers. 2 middies or shirts. One change of underwear. Bathing suit and cap. Bath towel. Wash cloth. Tea towel. Toilet and laundry soap (small).

The booster party of the Hereford breeder of Nebraska, suiting from Hastings August 1 on a twelve-day trio that will take them over practi- foGt'rnllv the whole of western Nebraska. was will reach Alliance August t ana win spend the night here. An open air meeting will b conducted. The Omaha Journal-Stockman furnishes the fol lowing report of the extent of the booster trip and its objects and itiner ary: One of the most extensive trips of its kind er promoted in the West will occur in the state the first 12 days of August. The Nebraska Hereford breders, among whom are incorporated some of the most constructive breeders of the present time, have planned this booster drive over the western half of the state to better acquaint them selves with the general cattle condi tions and get acquainted not only with their fellow breeders but with all thoso interested either from a pure bred standpoint, or in the better produc tion of beef v tvno of cattle. The schedule of the trio, which will leave 1 ' Hastings Monday morning, August 1, 0 at 8 o'clock, is given below, and will l'be followed to the dot, barring acci 0 dents and inclement weather. Several speakers of prominence win accom pany the party and open air meetings will be held in all the county neat towns through which they pass, lasting 30 minutes to 1 hour. Shorter stops will be made at other tow ns along the route upon request. Time has been allowed for the in spection of the principal herds of re- 1 ' gistered Herefords along the route. O These herds will be gathered and held l;for inspection at convenient points 0 ! close to the road. Pilots from ad 1 1 vanced towns are ' requested to meet 2 the excursionists so that no time will 0 be lost and the best road encountered.

The mother. Mrs. Mable Ives, has appeared before the Board of County Commissioners a couple of time3 ask ing for relief under the Mother's Pen sion law. The board investigated the matter thoroughly and found that the maximum amount she would be en titled to would be only fifty dollars per month, insufficient to pay house rent and care for the family. The family consists of Doris, aged 15, Donald, 14, Kenneth 12, Katherine 11, Marian 9, James 7, Eugene 5, Mabel 3, and Isabella 10 months. The two older children are, above the, age limit of the law which is intended to provide relief in cases of this kind. If placed in the state home the children would be allowed to attend the Lincoln city schools and be clothed and fed. The father was unemployed for several weeks before his death and the family was left in destitute circumstances. Mrs. Mable Ives, the mother, strong ly opposes the move to send the child ren to the state home, and contends, according to reports, that she would rather have them starve than to be taken away and the family broken up.

The current issue of the Omaha Trade Exhibit contains a summary of price reductions, as shown by advertisements In newspapers from various parts of the state. The com parison shows that Alliance mer chants are doing as much or more than merchants in any other por tion of the state to bring prices back to normalacy. A not a bio feat ure is that in this city, the r)vr- tions are to bo found in practically all lines. The Trade Exhibit says: "Retailers throughout Nebraska are giving ample evidence that they appreciate the fact that their public is now bargain-minded and are act ing on that hypothesis. "While there is no cooperative ef fort to hold sales on the part of the Alliance stores the newspapers there are full of large advertise ments offering merchandise at an average of at least 20 per cent re ductions. We note such offerings on cut glass at the Bogue ttore, dresses at the Fashion Shop, vari ous lines of dresses and dry goods at Highland-Holloway Co., ehoes by the Baer-Alter Co., groceries and meats by the Mallery ' Grocery, jewelry by Thiele's, and on mens and women's wear in a 'Live Wire Sale' by the W. R. Harper depart ment store. ; "Evidence such as this might be gathered indefinitely but enough is given here to prove the point, Ne braska merchants appreciate the fact that the public is bargain minded and that tht way to prepare for the big business of the coming fall and winter is to turn present stocks into money."

At times it almost assumed the proportions of a clouiburst in the city, doing some damage to the un- paved streets. During the height of the storm, at about two o'clock this morning, the fire department was called out by a small blaze on an electric light pole in the alley on Second street, be tween Box Butte and Laramie, caused by crossed electric wires. No material damage was done. Weather Observer Jimmy Hicks re ports that the total rainfall to date for the month of July amounts to 3.21 inches, the largest portion of this coming last night Farmers are jubil ant as the heavy downfall of moisture will be of great help to the potato and corn crops.

And again the steady hum or tne thresher is heard as it turns out tha fiftv-bushel wheat, but with a new crew on tap who are willing to accept reasonable wages. Chief of Police Chas. Jeffer3 was noticed by telephone Sunday night by McDonald of Bridgeport to be on the lookout for two men driving a Cole "Eight" touring car and to hold them if located. He found that the men had stopped at the Sturgeon garage at an early hour, filled up with gas, and an nounced that they were on their way to Chadron. istered bulls, To Visit Points of Lderest.
