The heroine is a chorus girl whose slang wins the love of an aristocratic man of wealth and who places her in his home to be properly educated. While her sweetheart goes to Texas on businees, Elizabeth meets and falls in love with his brother. Meanwhile she is being educated to be the charming woman she soon grows to be. Her fiance meets another chorus girl in Texas and falls in love with her. He returns and finding Elizabeth trans formed, releases her from her engage ment. Wednesday's feature is "The Flame of Hellgate," one of those cattle pic tures, w-;th Beatriz Michelena as the star. One of the more important fig ures is the cattle king who dominates the whole region. Ke is responsible for the election of a sheriff who is little more than a "yes boy," having no say in more important matters. When a murder occurs for which the forces of the cattle king are responsible the sheriff refuses to make an arrest. This rotten political condition leads to the declaration of war on the part of the daughter of the murdered man which motivates the story. "Clothes" is the expressive title of the Thursday photoplay. Olive Tell takes the leading part, that of Olivia Sherwood, a pleasure-loving, caprici ous reckless young woman who has known nothing but wealth, and who is not even permitted to know that the has been left with only $2,000 a year nothing at all in Olivia's world until the man who has been advanc ing her money, tells her the money was not left her by her father, but that he had been giving it to her in tending to "buy" her. His shocking disclosure precipitates a dramatic dis aster. The man who is blind to his own faults and deaf to the praise of oth ers is never dumb in regard to his own virtues. Going Through the Files TWENTY YEARS AGO. Dispatcher A. V. Gavin of Sheridan has been transferred to Deadwood as dispatcher of the Burlington lines in the Black Hills. L. H. Mo.-her will re turn to Alliance as dispatcher on firt trick. Trouble over some settlement or failure to settle resulted in the head cook at the Charters hotel quitting work Monday and subsequent dis charge of all d'ning room help. No meals were served for four dayf, when new help was secured. Mr. Pardy, the ex-cook, announced that he would open up a dining hall in the rear rooms of the MeWhir.ney building. John W. Warner. uperiner.(lnnt o the poor farm, while standing in the field, was struck and instantly killed. He leaves a wife and four children. G. W. Duncan is now r.icely located with his grocery store in the new brick building erected by S. Reck. A new porcelain lined bathtub is being put in the club rooms. Every thing calculated to add to the com fort and convenience of the members is carefully looked after. On a recent excursion coming down from Hot Springs, a colored man named McDulTle was making (juite a racket -on the car. D. W. Lcee, mar shal of Alliance, was on the car and called to the man to make less noise. Whether hearing him or not is not known, hut he did rot stop makirg the noise anyway and Lee cracked him over the head with a beer bottle, knocking him down. Last week the man's wife went to Chadron and filed a complaint for assault with intent to kill. Sheriff Dargnn came down to make the arrest, but Lee had gone to Hastings with his horses for the races. The sheriff there was wired to arrest him, which he did, and Lee gave a $500 bond to appear at Chadron when wanted. In the meantime the case was settled at Alliance. Simon Spry paid the costs and a paper dismissing the suit was drawn up by Judge Wilcox for the complainants to sign. Thus does a great tempest in a tea pot wind up in the air. Monday afternoon there was a rumor of a shooting scrape at Bridge port in which the names of well known men lown there were connected. In vestigation proved that a man named Tracy sent word that he had been shot at by five men. The parties were brought up and testified that they had been shooting at coyotes and never knew the man was around. Thus an other sensation went up in the air. They are great for shooting coyotes down in that country and men not de sirous of being shot at should be care ful to not resemble coyotes. The sale advertised to take place Tuesday for the Charters hotel prop erty did not come off because the nctice was not published the length of time required by law. The proceedings will have to be gone all over again re quiring some weeks yet before a sale can be had. Some of the parties con necte(Lwith the deal had a personal en counter on the street which gave the county court a little business. A number of Dr. F. M. Knight's friends in Alliance received a card from him -this week from the Yellow stone Park, where he is now viewing the wonderful sights. The cards were very neat, each one having a different view of the park on it. TEN YEARS AGO. Dr. James P. Maxfield, the dentist who came to Alliance from Lincoln home weeks ago, has completely re modeled the office in the Rumer block, over Brennan's drag store, and it is indeed a model of neatness and con venience. The Herald is pleased to note that Dr. Maxfield is doing a good business and is very well pleased with his location here. He will have his horse and buggy shipped from Lincoln to Alliance for his use in driving around the city and adjoining country. Ringling Brothers circus always draws big crowds, but it looks now like the crowds it will bring to Alliance next Saturday will be the biggest ever assembled in this part of the state. Robert Graham came up from his Garden county ranch the first of the week and spent a whi'e in the city greeting friends and transacting busi ness. We are pleased to note that the democratic state convention made him a member of the state central com mitte. Messrs. Hall and Graham are giving especial attention this year to the live stock business, and are on the Gene Byrnes Says: "Here's the Music B.?.C IF J M" Wll''I i. J lift. -V ITJ'' hi I !

Meyer, principal-elect of the Alliance hiph Fchool, left Saturday morning for his home in Peru, going vi.t Omaha to take in the tmnis tour nament, in which he will play. Since the close of school he has been setting the youths of Alliance an excellent ex ample of in lustry, having been work ing for 1. W. Hughes, the ice man. F. N. find J. G. Wal'ace, operating under the firm name of Wallace Bros., leased the Vounkin rooming hour-e and Crystal theater, and took immediate possession. They expect to make some improvements in the theater. N. A. Kemmish, superintendent of the city water and light department, is again f t peace with the world, his wife having returned from a western trip of several months, visiting in Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

For the fifth time in three months, the city council was compelled to pott pone a regular meeting because no! enough members turned out to make a legal quorum. Mayor Rodgers did his best to get the members to turn out, but even with the assistance of the city clerk and the chief of police wasn't able to make the hill. The Alliance Rotary club, at its re gular Wednesday meeting went on record as favoring the five-commissioner plan of city government. The census bureau intimated that Alliance would not be allowed an offi cial recount of its population, and the chamber of commerce was up in arms. E. K. Haldeman, district commercial manager for the telephone company, was in the city for two days. He ex pected to wrestle with the council over a franchise, but there wasn't a quorum to hear him. ' The organization of the Nebraska Potato Growers' exchange was com pleted at a meeting held in Alliance.

LAKESIDE Bini!ham-"Oil Mnrnntes" p-ame nt l akeside, August 7, was later decided i in the Oil Magnates favor. Owing to an error on the part of the rcorc keepers the scores stood a tie in the List of the ninth inning. The correct score was 1(5 to 15 in favor of the Oil Magnates, but the general understand ing was a tie, so the game continued two more innings.
