never strong, had been suffering for'
several years and lately, caught a cold
which developed into pneumonia, from
which she died January 24. She ex
hibited an exceptional spirit in all her
suffering. She leaves father and
mother, and several brothers and sis

at Habana, Cuba
Al'ianco friends of W. U. Fulreer,
wh; h knotvn and liked by all of the
.acing cnLr.uia.-t In this p:irt of the
country, will bp interested in n letter
recently received from him by Ed
Bii-nop of this city. Mr. Fulnier is
now nt Habana, Cuba, following the
racing game as a photographer, al
though ho has been connected with
other departments of this Fport. He
usually spends his winters at llalmna
or some other rac'ng center, coming
to the western states when the rac
ing season opens here. His letter to
Mr. Bishop reads, in part, as follow:
"How are all the bunch? I trust
everyone is well and doing fine. Had
a letter from Nick Ronin (rremonts
veteran starter) and he says they are
co ng to get up another circuit this
year, but didn't give me nnv of the
dates or particulars. How are things
up there in your part of the country?
Times are the hardest here that they
have been in years, and money is sure
tight. About the only loose change
around is the money the tourists
leave here as they pass throueh on
the different excursions, nnd there is
one or more every day, I gue.;s, by
they way they pile out to the track
end bob around town.
"The season is on in full blast now
and although money is tight, they
seem to dig it up from somewhere and
spend it, nnd things keep on going
just the same as hertofore, only not
so much money is being thrown around
as in other years.
"The ring (books) at the track are
$250,000 loser this year right now and
some of the bookies are quitting be
cause they also have run out of money,
but I think those that stick will wind
up a little winner on the year yet.
They come down like trained pigs and
everyone seems to know the winner
(except me), but I ta t kick, as I am
breaking about even with them be

the other day and he paid $120.20 for
a two-dollar ticket and of course I

helped some, at that. Living and rooms
have come down wonderfuly here this
winter and you can really live about
the same as you can in the States if
vou get on to the ropes a little. My

Judge Tash Finds
Evidence Against
Youth Is Too Weak
County Judge Tash, following a
hearing in county court Monday after
noon, fund the evidence in the case did
not warrant a ooviction of Lester Beal
on a charge of assault and battery
against the person of Lawson L. In
man, and the defendant was dis
charged. Saturday afternoon Inman appeared
before the county authorities and made
complaint against Beal, alleging that
the latter had attacked him without
cause or provocation following a bas
ket ball game on the evening of Thurs
day, January 26. Beal was called into
court by telephone by Sheriff Miller
Monday and the case was heard.
Inman's testimony, which was des
cribed as vague by the court, was to
the effect that he and Beal were
strangers. They were seated near each
other during the basket ball game, and
he wa3 rooting pretty vociferously.
Beal turned around and told him vo
shut up, he said. Nothing more was
said, but at the clone of the game he
was inclined to resent it, and had told
Beal that it took a good deal of nerve
to talk that way. Thereupon, friends
of the couple intervened. Later, at
Tenth and Box Butte, they stopped on
a vacant lot. He blacked Beal eve.
he said, and the latter struck him while
he was getting his overcoat otf. Some
one had also stepped on his face, with
serious damage to its appearance, but
he was not inclined to blame Beal.
The defendant's testimony was to
the effect that Inman was making cute
remarks which seemed to apply to the
young lady he was escorting. He had
told Inman to shut up. Later, they
had some words, and l'riends had pre
vented a fight. Inman had followed
him, and they finally mixed it.
Judge Tash, after hearing the evi
dence, decided that Inman was the ag
gressor, having gone out of his way a
block to follow Beal, and ruled accord
ingly. He did not rule on the question
of which was victorious in the scrap.

league meetings. Next Sunday night
they will begin the study of a story
book entitled, "John Wesley, Jr."
The pastor is kept busy these days
visiting and ministering unto the sick,
both at homo and among the members
nnd friends of the church. The calls
for visits are coming in faster than we
can accommodate them. However, let
us be patient, as we go where we think
we are needed th most. Owing to so
many of our members being on tlie sick
list, or kept home because of sickness
in the family, the pastor will take the
liberty of postponing the monthly busi
ness mooting one week, so Wednesday
we will have a praper meeting inste.nl.
The subject to be, "Why Should We
Seek to Be Soul Winners." The new
song, "Every One a Personal Worker,"
will be sung.
There will be no Focial nt the church
this week. Let those of us who are
able do what we can to show our inter
est in the sick. Those who can might
take their Sunday school "pajiers to
thoe who were not there. The B. Y.
P. U. continues to improve, and sev
eral bouquets of flowers were yent to
the sick this week by them. But let
us not "say it with flowers" altogether,
let us pay a personal visit.
We are preparing to revive as
guests the Alliance Volunteer Fire de
partment next Sunday evening. The
orchestra will play, and special songs
will be given by the choir.

"The Passionate Pilgrim," from the
novel by Samuel Merwin, Matt Moore
and Ruby de Reymer take the lead
ing roles in the story of Henry Calver
ly, an author, who to protect his
mother-in-law from the consequences J
of an involutary crime, sends her away i
and is himself sent to prison for three
years.' His wife, her daughter, soon
dies. Assuming the name of Stafford, i
he begins life anew as a reporter on ,
his release and is assigned to inter-,
view the mayor, Tim Mclntyre, who
is in league with the trustees of the
rich Cantey estate of which Miriam
Cantey a beautiful invalid daughter of
the testator, is the guiding mind.
When Stafford's story is published,
Mclntyre causes him to be discharged.
Miriam prevails upon Stafford to write
a biography of her father and during
that period they fall in love with each

Miss Hawkshaw," with Eileen Percy.!
An irate nobleman ejects his daugh
ter, Patricia, from his castle because
she married the son of a blacksmith.
Patricia leaves for America, while her
husband is placed under arrest at the
order of the nobleman. In mid-Atlan
tic a baby is born to the grief-stricken
woman, bhe dies, leaving tne baby in
care of an old sailor. Eighteen years
later little Patricia is seen in New
York as the mistreated foster-daughter
of the seaman, and figuring as a
"newsboy." The plot develops rapidly
until the heroine discovers that she not
only is heiress to a rich estate, but the
possessor of a true man's heart.
Thursday and Friday "The Man
From Lost River" will be shown. The
stars are House Peters. Fritzi Brunette
and Allen Forrest. The story pictures
the trials of a powerful, patient lumber
camp foreman in "standing by" the
girl he loves while a weak nepnew or
a millionare marries her, neglects her
and eventually proves his utter un-
worthiness. An act of providence
strips all the characters in the play
to their fundamental finess or base
ness, at the same time that wickedness
receives its just reward.
Raid in Little
Mexico Sole Job
for the Police
The past few days have been quiet in
police circles, the only thing that broke
the monotony of days without a cap
ture being a search of the bunk cars
in Little Mexico yesterday afternoon.
The freight crews reported a number
of leather cushions from way cars
missing, and city, county and Burling
ton police made a leisurely search.
They discovered seven cushions, the
number that had been reported miss
ing, and these were turned over to the
storehouse . No arrests were made, it
being understood that the Mexicans
simply borrowed them from the cars.
