"The Education of Elizabeth," is
tonight's attraction at the Imperial,
with Billie Burke in the leading role.
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
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.
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.

pone a regular meeting because no!
