Rev. B. J. Minort
Preaches a Special
Odd Fellow Sermon
A capacity house attended the serv
ices at the Baptist church last Sunday
evening to hear Rev. B. J. Minort's
sermon on "Friendship." The Odd
Fellows attended in a body, and the
audience was made up 70 per cent of
men. After a singing contest between
the men and women, in which the men
more than won out,- the pastor said,
in part:
"The story of Jonathan and David is
pregnant with the principles that go to
create and spread the spirit of friend
ship. True friendship calls fer certain
principles, and exist only in noble,
generous, and virtuous souls.
"'A good man is the best friend,
therefore soonest to be chosen, long
est to be kept, unless he ceases to be
that for which he was chosen,' says a
writer. Cicero said, 'Friendship is
founded upon esteem rthey are worthy
of friendship in whom there exists
Jn Vile
A high compliment for Rev. B. J.
Minort nnd his column in I'he Her
ald, "The .Parson's Coiner," is
contained in the following reference
to this series of articles by on edi
torial writer in the Omaha Id
Herald, who comments upon them
in the following favorable terms:
"The Rev. B. J. Minort of the
First Baptist church of illnnce is
author of 'The Parson's Corner,'
which runs regularly in Hie Herald
of that city. The writer does not
waste his space in lengthy sermons
or long expositions on Christianity
n the abstract- He brings things
home to the readers in real news
paper style and has interesting
matter in his column which causes
it to be widely read in north vest
em Nebraska. Concrete Christian
ity of that kind does much rood for
the cause the parson represents, a
good many people believe."

Threatened Unless

The directors of the Alliance cham
ber of commerce face some unpleasant
experiences in connection with the re
cent race meet, which left something
of a deficit to be reckoned with. The
federal revenue officers are en . the
trail of some f 260 war tax on the ad
missions and threaten dij-ciwl things
if it is not paid. The Alliance men ut
one time thought this would not be
collected, but the tax official changed
his mind after the money In sight had
been expended. Fines .for delay hnve

Enid Bennett in "Silk Hosiery" is
the interesting title at tonight's pro
duction at the Imperial. Miss Bennett
is seen as a model in a fashionable
modiste's shop, and she reads fashion

of romance are on her horizon. When
she arrays herself in a customer's
gown and begins to dream of love and
wealth, some startling things happen.
There is plenty of romance and thrills
in the action, butthe finale is in the
nature of a surprise.
