For the convenience of those having a communicable disease and coming under the jurisdiction of the city of Alliance or the county of Box Butte each havo provided a sep arate pest house located near Alliance. Patients who prefer to use either of these pest houses may do so by paying their own expenses and other expenses connected with their stay at the pest house and may be quarantined there rc'.I:r than be quarantined at their homes m the Board of Health will us ually do in such cases.

TO JOIN LEAGUK (Continued from Page 1.) may support wherein gambling and the throwing of games is held down to a minimum as it is in organized ball, under the penalty of heavy fines and a salary limit that will not permit one town to hire players at a larger salary' than any other town, we cannot only have the National game but can make it self-supporting as well. Ten Cities Suggested. "To this end we are writing to the following ten cities: Sterling, Brush, Fort Collins, Fort Morgan and Gree ley, Colorado; Sidney, Alliance, Scotts bluff and North Platte, Nebraska; Cheyenne, Wyoming, within a radius of 200 miles and asking that all par ties interested in a baseball league of this kind kindly write us at once so that out of the ten cities there will be six or eight that will form a leamie. But to do this means that we must begin at once and we would like a mail vote of a meeting date, say at Sterling, for it is the most centrally located of the above named towns. We desire that each representative bring with him a list of hotels and what pi ices the hotel would be willing to give a baseball club, together with in formation as to the available baseball parks, probable cost for them, etc.. the meeting to be not later than the 24th of November. We would suggest the date of November 1 9 at Hotel Garham, Sterling, Col., at eleven o'clock, a. m. "Thanking you in advance for any and all favors and believing that by fostering such an organization as we suggest, each city will not only have vtcruTntie baseball, but enough friendly rivalry can be injected to not only make a team self-supporting but that we can get adevrtising that can be obtained in no other way. Yours for high class baseball. "E. T. CONQUEST, "DR. J. E. ZEHMAN." The Alliance secretary sent, the fol lowing reply last Saturday, which shows that the action of the memebrs was anticipated: "Your proposition certainly sounds interesting, although we have our doubts as to whether or not it can be put over, due to the present dull finan cial situation and also to the fact that a number of towns you mention, in cluding Alliance, have never been able to support a real baseball team in the proper manner. Your letter and your suggestion regarding a meeting at Sterling on November 19 will be sub mitted to our members at their next meeting, after which we will be pleas ed to advise you of their action in the matter." x New Automobile Filling Station Being Built at Fourth and Laramie Sts. A. II. Harper, formerly manager of the Mutual Oil company in Alliance, and W. G. Neiman, traveling salesman whose home is in this city, are part ners in a new business enterprise for Alliance, an automobile filling station, which will be erected at Fourth and Laramie. Ground was broken for the building Monday morning, Jake Bick nell being in charge of the leveling squad, and the building, which will be of tile and stucco, will be rapidly pushed to completion. The station will handle a complete line of gasoline, kerosene, lubricating oil and grease. City Police Officers Planning to Begin a Couple of Crusades Chief of Police C. W. JefTers is mak ing plans to begin two or three cru sades for law enforcement The first people on the list who are due to feel the arm of the law are those who per- sit In driving their automobiles by the light of the spotlight alone. Some of the offenders have told the chief that this is their right, under the law, and cne of them, when remonstrated with proceeded to buy an extra spotlight and is now driving with two of them for illumination and no headlights. The law reads that every car must be equipped with two headlights, equip ped with legal lenses, and that a spot light may be used, provided the light is focused so that it stirkes the ground at a 42 inches in the air thirty feet in front of the car. Spotlights may be used, but they don't take the place of legal headlights by a long shot, and the chief is figuring on making an ar rest of two. Other offenders that are in a fair way to get to tell it to the judge are the fellows who haven't yet purchased legal lenses. Some of these people have declared that they don't drive after dark, but the law provides for legal headlights on every car licensed by the state, and makes no exceptions for the cars that stay in the garages o nights. The third crusade Chief JefTers is nlanninor arises from comolainta that the cigarette law is being violated in j Alliance by men who smoke in restau rants and eating houses. The smoking of cigarettes is forbidden in eating houses by state law. The proprietors hesitate to reprimand the offenders, according to women who have com plained to the chief that they have been unable to eat because of the thoughtlessness of some cigarette smokers. The chief will post notices giving the provisions of the law, and will then proceed to hale violators into court. This pastime is likely to cost the guilty parties from $10 to $25, tho penalty provided by law reading that way.
