THE ALLIANCE HERALD, FRIDAY, AUGUST 5th, 1921.
RANDOM SHOTS The idea that two can live as cheap "Jy M one was probably started by a tapeworm. Antiorh, 111., is now in a class with Harvard, Neb. A Harvard banker -wanted to know if "Dabe Ruth" was Ruth Bryan, the daughter of William lafre constable arrested William and -Jennings Bryan. At Antioch, the vil persisted in calling him Mr. O'Brien intil the only democrat in town got him out of the clutches of the law. It probably pained William more to yo unrecognized than it did to be ar rested. With Antioch potash magnate uniting: for oil and the big plants shut clown, we are reminded of the changes time brings. The potash era may be forgotten in ten years, save by those -who are holding the sack. All of which reminds us that prob ably we'll never be allowed to forget the defunct Cox-Roosevelt club. Gone, but not forgotten, as the headstones used to read. rfont see why I can't wear short f-kirts like all the other girls.' Her mother gave a little gasp of surprise, and then she said: '"Why, Mary, your ideas are becoming poMtively shocking. You know perfectly well that you are not old enough yet to wear short skirt.' " fnUBe OWE Tonight's attraction at the Imperial is Shirley Mason in "Flame of Youth." Love romance is the dominant note. The story gives glimpses of a cele brated Parisian artist and scenes in . & i . . . i . t i I a Humo, in xoiurasi mere is ueoee, tne uttie Belgian nower girl, who until the painter comes with his stories of the city is quite content in her humble surroundings. The press agent has Eromised thrills galore and plenty of eart interest. The daily newspapers say that a traveling man died of heart failure in a Crete hotel. He was seated in the hotel dining room, and the dinner was erveL He didn't say a word, but his hand went to his head, the world turn ed black and he pitched forward. The newspapers say it wa3 heart failure, hut once we ate at that same hotel, nd we know, WE KNOW. The office force has been trifling with boxing gloves. ' All of them showed, a lot of pep the first tryout, trot since then no one has put on the V'loves but the newskids. The business manager is off of the "tobacco again. Don't tempt him. And -don't reproach him. The last time it only lasted three days. fThe Hot Springs Times-Herald aaya -that one can get two pounds more of eugar for a dollar there than in sur rounding towns, but we refuse to be tempted. ' We spent two days there once. Take It for what it's worth, but the editor of an exchange says that he has Vaowl tlia trattrrliria ainfrintr. Ami that nnless all signs and superstitions fail. The same Hot Springs newspaper carries this headline: "Fifty Years Married Typical Event Friends Pay Homage." It's a bad habit to get into this celebrating golden wedding an niversaries, and if it is repeated two or Ihree times, death is sure to ensue. The news comes from the dress makers' convention that the skirts are to be long this fall down to the iinkles, almost. An authority tells us that he is quite positive the new styles- will never be popular in Alli ance. But have you heard the men are ""rolling their un". Hs uppwters -are no longer being used by the smart vlressers. And a San Francisco bank, has -added a "stocking room" for the use of its lady customers. This will not only permit withdrawing fundd from de posit, but will serve as a port in wind storms. If the poet is right about it, and it's really true that "btone walls do not a prison make, nor iron bage a cage' ame one ought to get out an injunc tion against the state officers who have signed a contract agreeing to pay 328,921 for iron bar3 for the junior penitentiary. Wonder who writes the funny say ings that these movie actors and -actorines are credited with? Alice Lake's press agent says that she told her closest friend, a "golf widow," that golf is a kind of "hoof and mouth disease." "It's hoof all day and then come home and month." Ole Buck and his wife whizzed through Alliance without stopping for a game of golf. Ole knows when he's out of his closs. His idea of athletic exercise is to watch Mrs. Buck and the junior editor playing croquet. Ole is the only man we've been able to buffalo on our golf score. He thinks that 100 is a pretty good score. An Alliance business man complains that it is almost impossible to get do mestic help these days. He interviewed a prospective housewaid the other day, who told him that she wanted $10 a -week, the washing and ironing done outside, Saturday afternoon and even ing off, and that if she could have these concessions, she'd "probably s-tay ;uite a while." , Old Story. Two doctors were quarreling over Jim Judson, who was very ill. "You're wrong," said the first doctor. "I m right," said the second. The patient gave a groan of agony. "Have your own way," said the second doctor, "but I'll prove I'm right at the post-mortem." , A Rubhville Record. Born to Mr. and Mrs. Martin Horn ing, July 1, a nine pound daughter. Mother and child doing fine. Dr. Peniel in attendance. P. S. The above specimen was ob tained at a depth of 950 feet, and since then more favorable signs have been found of oil formations. Rushville Record. Today's Best Story. "They were talking in a loud tone of voice and from all appearances, and from what followed it was plain to be Feen that they were mother and daughter," says the Town Cossip. "Daughter was about fifteen years old and she was angry about something. 1 drew near, and there were tears in her eyes, and she was pouting, and I heanl her sav to her mother: '1 never Saturday comes Bebe Daniels in "Ducks and Drakes." Little Miss In nocence saw no harm in promiscuous telephone flirtations with any pleasant masculine voice that her system of picking random telephone numbers brought on her wire. How could she dream that some of these men knew each other; knew she was flirting with all of them, and were framing up a plot to punish and cure her of her wild habit? Of course these telephone flirtations led to secret meetings. And first thing she knew, reckless Teddy had more excitement in her young life than she knew how to manage. Sunday's feature is Elaine Ham- .Byrnes." In this picture Miss Ham- Imerstein portrays a dual role. She represents twin sisters .diametrically opposite in character, manner and ac tions. One is flashy and thoughtless, , the other is sweet and modest. The conflict between their personalities and the mistakes made because of their similar appearance are responsible for a series of romantic and dramatic hap penings culminating in a thrilling scene in a deserted house. Funeral Services Are Held Wednesday for Former Alliance Man Funrral services were hold at 2:"0 p. m. Wednesday from the First Bap tist church for Walter H. Boon, former Alliance resident, who met death at Dixon, 111., last Saturday, as the result of a gunshot wound. Rv. B. J. Mi nort conducted the services. Walter H. Boon was th son of Mr. and Mrs. Kitvmuo Boon. He was born in Shelby countv. Indiana, December 23, 1800. With his parents he moved to Illinois, settling near Dixon, from there they moved to Morrill county, Nebraska, then to Box Butte county where he was well known. He leaves to mourn his departure a father, two brothers, Oscar Boon of Dixon, 111., and W. J. Boon of Oregon, 111., and his faithful wife, who was Jennie Colerick of Alliance before her marriage to the deceased. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. O. Cole rick of Alliance. Mrs. J. T. Barkhurst of Alliance was' his grandmother. His death was sudden as it was tragic, being the result of mistaken identity. Walter H. Boon was mis taken for a trespasser on another's land and property, when in reality he was caring for a threshing machine on the party's premises. In snite of all medical aid and all that science could do he passed away at the age of thirty, having just barely tasted of life. He was the son of a good Baptist woman who souirht to raise her chil dren in the fear and love of God ana He was a good, moral man and faithful husband. He leaves a large circle of relatives and many friends who will miss him. Herald 'Vant Ada-Results. "The Fighting Lover" will be shown Monday. The story starts out with Frank Mayo as a rich young 'fellow who casually bets $10,000 that he can reach out into the world and produce three girls with one of whom his friend will fall in love in thirty days . He ad vertises for three girls and a thousand I answer. From among them he picks three, any one of whom would make a young man happy just to look at her. With that interesting start the story develops a brisk speed that leaves the earth for the climax. DESPERATE CASE. A country doctor h:id been called to a neighbor's home and found the wife in a hysterical condition. "How long has she been like this?" he asked the husband. "Ever since this morning," he re plied. "She ran up against an echo out in the back yard and found she couldn't have the last word,". . There is no harm in talking about disarmament so long as we do not do it first.

It means maxi mum motoring qualities at minimum cost. It means sane, sensible investment value instead of extrav agance. Therefore it has changed, and will continue to change, buying habits in the fine car field of America. You have but to look about you for the evidence. The boulevards tell the stcry. For more than 25 of our total sales have replaced cars costing from one to three thousand dollars more than the Paige. In short, the fine car buyer has grown weary of paying "excess fare."
