Everyone enjoyed doing their part. We were amply repaid when we looked into the happy faces about thA on Sunday evening. It shows that after all our interests are in common and that when we work and pull to- gcther we can accomplish wonders wnicn win Dnnjr trrcat n easurn to u all. We wish to thank evervone whn helped to make this a splendid success. We were glad indeed to see so many in attendance from outside of Alliance. Unfortunately the condition of th roads kept many away. We have been asked to keep the tree up until after New Years and light it each night to that those who could not come in run do so any time this week and see the tree. While we gave out over 2.100 pack ages we had about 200 left consisting of candy, nuts. etc.. .so that anv nnn living outside of Alliance who could not come in- may do so and obtain a package this week for each of their children until they are all eiven awva. Parents will call at the Chamber of Commerce room's over Brennan's drug store any time during the day. In our Light and Water departments many have come in and wanted to pay their bills before the first of the month. As you will remember we made ar rangements in the middle of October whereby the water anil light bills would be due and payable on the first of the month and the discount period is up and including the 10th of the month.

Y., at the age of eighty two. , Roy Hoffland, Homer Smith and the Misses Marguerite Briggs and Louise Oakes, of Antioch, attended the show in Alliance Sunday night a week later. The locomotive shops under the new schedule will work forty hours a week, that being the minimum possible, under the rules. The Burlington, like other western roads, has a surplus of cars. Many are standing idle. Therefore the need for repairing is less urgent than m seasons when cars are in demand. A smaller force can be made to answer winter requirements, especially while traffic is very light Because of that the force will be cut In the locomotive shops it i3 deemed best to reduce the number of hours and wherever possible to keep the men in the employ of the road, the result will be that the men will work five days a week. The Burlington is one of the last to announce winter retrenchment in its shops. Several weeks ago the Union Pacific reduced forces at a number of shoo towns. The Milwaukee followed with a big cut and the Missouri Paci fic anounced that five of its largest fchop plants would be closed for an in definite period. The Rock Island re duced forces. Other roads have cut their forces preceding the holitlays. The Burlington's cut was delayed until the coming of the new year. This will mean a considerable reduc tion in car repair forces at all car shop division points, a reduction in the num- a p Rturiron arrived Saturday night from St Paul, Neb .P , ber of hours worked ard in the locomo Christmas with his family.

Here's the first one to tell those misguided nuts where they get off: O Gatenby, O Gatenby, Why did you do this thing? Why fling that challenge out to us That we our bards must bring And meet in mental contest In Prosody or poetry Or any other thing For in the realm of rhyming fantasy Your Leo Lloyd is king. He is supreme supernal in the wooing of the muse That gives to her enchanted one the ability to use The magic of their pencils to inscribe for her in verse. '. And in mighty realms of poetry Make known their mental worth. We weep that we are mortal For ho mortal dares to tread In the winding paths of poetry Till your Leo is in bed. So if I don't forget I'll get up in the night And make a mighty effort To lick him in this fight There comes a man from Chadron town Apd bids us bold defiance To challenge all, both great and small, , In the whole town. Alliance. To be most square and meet him fair fair To test our mental metal That he may show that his Leo Is away beyond our fettle. Are we but colts or mental dolts That we should fail to utter But let this slam and monkey d Push us into the gutter. Arise ye bards, pull out your swords, Of Mental vim and valor Go out and fight in black and white' And lick the silly blatter. G. W. N. IT AINT NO LAW, GIRLS.
