near. If, as happened this year, the
market for grain goes to pieces or
takes a big slump, it ties him up finan
cially. This isn t the case with the
iarmer who owns a good dairy herd.
Experience shows that the man with
Alairy cattle has a steady market for
.their produce and that every month in
aChe year he realizes a sure profit.
The men who are behind the move
ment to stock Nebraska farms with
lairy cattle are going to work on a
fcupe scale. A dairy exchange will be
established in South Omaha, and there
twill be field men who will go into the
eastern states and secure option on
lairy cattle. The dairy stock that will
le purchased will be the best grade of
thoroughbreds, of guaranteed quahty
amd known worth as producers. These

BOY SCOUTS
GIVE DINNER
FOR MOTHERS
ENTERTAIN AT PALM ROOM
THURSDAY EVENING.
City Manager Kemmish, County Judge
. Tash, Mrs. S. W. Thompson and
the Boya are Speakers.
The Alliance Boy Scouts Thursday
evening observed "Mother's night" at
the Alliance hotel, when fifty gcouts
and mothers were present at a ban
quet Dinner was served at 8 o'clock
in tho Palm Room, and was followed
by a number of addresses by guests
and some short talks by the boys
themselves. Charles Brittan presided
as toastmaster.
B. W. Keach, scoutmaster, told of
some or the dimcuities encountered
in keeping up the work of the organ
ization. One oi the enter ditricuiues
during winter months is the transpor
tation of the boys to and from their
scout house at Broncho lake, where
the boys gather each week end for a
camping trip. He assured the mothers
that there was no need to worry over
the youths when away from home on
these trips, as either the scoutmaster
or his assistant, John Moxon, is with
them at all timef. He complimented
his scouts on their obedience. Alliance
has a better scout house than any
other city in the state three times it
size, he said, the building at Broncho
lake being as good as the scout house
at Omaha. The present need is for
furniture. Mr. Keach reviewed the
work the Boy Scouts Are doing In east
ern states, paying special attention to
tvir .(Tort in putting homeless boye
through school. '
Building of Character

necessity for building character, and
the good work along this line that the
Boy Scouts organization is accomplish

in Alliance for a public meeting plnce,
for the boys of 12 to 18 to gather for
wholesome amusement, ana -ia max
when the plans for rebuilding the
armory were pushed to completion,
this need would be supplied.
Ed. Burr compared the training giv
en the Boy Scouts and that given the
soldiers in the United States army,
and the benefits of such training. The
instruction and discipline they receive
as scouts would make better men of
them, he said, and advised them to

Organization of
Charity the Board
is Now Complete
At a meeting held at the chamber of
commerce rooms Tuesday evening,
which was attended by about twenty
five representatives -from various or
ganizations in the city, a central char'
ity board was elected, consisting of the
following eleven members: Mrs. S. W.
Thompson, chairman; Mrs. L. C.
Thomas, secretary; Mrs. W. D. Rumer,
Mrs. S. U. Tillett, lYof. W. R. Pate,
Rev. S. J. ,Epler, Rev. B. J. Minort,
ii rt i r t t tv. f i. .
can and City Manager N. A. Kemmish.
This board will also act as an inves
tigating committee, and there will be
complete investigation before families
are recommended for assistance.
At present, according to Mrs.
Thomas, there are eight families re
ceiving assistance, and ten others are
being investigated. Already some
duplication of effort has been over
come, and there are one or two cases
where famiiles were receiving aid
whose conditibn did not justify it. The
public been requested not to deliver
supplies to individuals, but to com
municate with Mrs. Thomas, who will
see that the case is investigated with
out delay. Familiesjdesiring assistance
are asked to communicate with Mrs.
Thomas.
Under the plan adopted by the char
ity board, the cases are investigated,
if assistance is deemed desirable, the
attention -of one or more organiza
tions is called to the case. It is the
intention to have the various churches
and lodges cave for the needy among
their own membership, but in the
event they are unable or unwilling to
do so, other organizations will take
over the burden whenever possible.

Special Efforts This Week to Get Ex-
Soldiers to Take Advantage

A special drive is being made by the
Omaha representative of the U. S.
Veterans' Bureau, Miss Florence I.
Barr, to urge Nebraska ex-soldiers to
reinstate their war risk insurance. The
drive is toking place this week, but
veterans have until December si, lvzi,
to take advantage of the final oppor
tunity to take up this insurance, which
will be priceless to them in years to
come.
A number of the ex-soldiers have al
lowed their insurance to lapse over
fiftv tier cent of them, it has been CS'
ti mated. Many of them have intended
to reinstate, but have kept putting it

ernment has called a halt, however,
and it's a case of now or never. After
December 8L, reinstatements will not
be accepted.

A CmfBAND
IN ALLIANCE
j.
r. MANN MAKES OFFER
THE LIONS CLUa
TO
Proposition to. Be Referred to Othec
Civic Organisations Be
' fore Acceptance.
The Alliance Lions club, at their
Thursday evening meeting, discussed A
proposition made by J. P. Mann, wha
recently organized a band in Alliance
This band has played on several ocea
slons, but public support is needed if
it is to develop into tne ort of a mu
slcal organisation that will be of most
benefit to the city. The Lions club
some weeks ago suggested that Mr.
Mann draw up a contract providing for
definite service at a definite price,
promising to give it consideration and
put the problem up to other civic or
ganizations. .
Mr. Mann submitted a contract in
which he agrees to furnish a twenty
piece band in the city of Alliance for
one year. Sixteen, weekly public con
certs will be given during the months
in which this can be done in the open,
and the band agrees to play on tea
other public occasions at any time dur
ing the year, the time to be set by h
organizations which are back of it. In
the past; during the race meet and
other occasions when a band has been
desirable, it has been necessary- for
Alliance to hire some outside band,
paying high prices and expenses that
would not need to be figured In sup
porting a local organization.
The Lions, after some discussion, de
cided to submit the contract to the
Rotary club, the chamber of commerce
and other organizations which may be
interested in public support of an Alli
ance band, and has deferred action
until their opinion has been ascertain
ed. The Lions are ready to go, ac
cording to the sentiment expressed,
but this is a trifle too heavy a load for
them to tackle without assurances of
other support.
New Schedule of
Prices for Phone
Changes in Effect
The new schedule of prices for
changing or installing telephones, re
cently allowed by the state railway
commission, went into effect in Alii- '
ance on Monday of this week. In al-
amounts to a reduction from former
rates. The only case where there ia
un increase is in the installation of an
extension bell. There has been no
charge for this in the past, and the
company is now authorized to charge
a fee oi si. iwo oi these bens were
installed last year, so the demand la
not so very great and Alliance will not
be compelled to spend much money on
this score.
The service connection charges have
been lowered. It now costs f 3 to in
stall a business telephone, and 2 for a
residence, as compared with the old
charge of $3.50 for either This price
