THE ALLIANCE HERALD, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1922.
TIIREQ Nebraska News Notts GREAT EXCiTKMKNT IN TOWN OF TOTTER POTTER Saturday morning a man vho had on big blue glasses, a curly moustache, overcoat turned up at the neck, and a hat pulled well down, in fact all the dress articles sufficient to impersonate the villian in a dime no vel, walked up and down our streets, and visited all the business houses in an endeavor to secure subscriptions to a certain maga2ine. The gentleman spoke a decided foreign accent and aroused a sense of suspicion wherever lie went. He was quite persistent in liis canvassing and almost made a number of sales. Early in the morning he passed a bogus check at the Citizens State Hank, and in the afternoon was ar rested by the marshal and made to pay back the amount of the check. Later he was taken to the treasurer's office to obtain a peddler's license as he was also selling clothing. The above sounds like it might be true but not a word of it is, except the description of the man's appear ance. The salesman was none other than our fellow citizen Clarence John son in disguise. His make-up and .stressed foreign accent were so good that he fooled about ninety per cent of the peonle he talked to. So good was his representation that he even fooled one of his brothers and his father. The bogus check and the clothing deal were only brought in to j?et the marshal in on the order of the day.' Now the next time a salesman with a moustache comes in here to sell U3 something we are going to give it a pull first to see if it is real, says the Potter Review. VHITTEMORE CONVICTED ON MANSLAUGHTER CHARGE BRIDGEPORT After forty-seven hoars deliberation the district court jury at Bridgeport that tried Herbert F. Whittemore for the murder of L. Lundy at Bayard about six weeks ago, returned a verdict of guilty of man slaughter. Sentence has not been pronounced, to give Whittemore a chance to ask for a new trail. The sentence, fixed by the statutes is the indeterminate one of one to seven years. Mrs. Bessie Baker, who is also charged with the crime, will be tried tow. County Attorney McDonald of Morrill county saying that her trial would be held as quickly as possible. Lundy was found at his rooming house, with his head beaten by a heavy instrument, and died shortly af ter his discovery, without having been able to tell who committed the crime. The man and the woman charged with the offense implicated Mexicans an the crime and asserted their own jnnocense. of boys and girls and complaints here tofore have been received concerning the shooting of firearms in the cave and near its entrance. The revolver was found in possession of the girl's brother. Came, the police sav, has been living with her grandmother and has been "tomboyish." OMAHA PACKING MEN VOTE TO END STRIKE OMAHA Fifteen hundred striking union packing house workers here Tuesday night voted unanimously to return to work immediately. The resolution which ended the walk out declared that the continuance of the present strike would serve no good purpose but would, on the other hand, work an injury and cause unnecessary suffering on the part of a great num- wi ui womers.

We have the friends, who meet the great crises, and bnng mess ing in our life. We have those who profess to be our friends who disap point us just when we need them most. There is the man we think our enemy who surprises us with kind deed or word just when we expect him to down us. Then, there is the man or woman who is our real enemy. It is a problem sometime to decide how rightly to con duct ourselves toward the last class. First let us consider how we get those enemies, a3 a rule. Paul shows one way wet get them in 2 Tim, 3:12. Here he says that we make them by doing right. He says that all who will live Godly in Christ Jesus shall sutTer persecution. Of this class of enemy, we should not worry. If by doing right we make these enemies it is a good proof that we are walking in the footsteps of our Savior. God does not condemn us for making such enemies. But are not we in dan ger of glorying in enemies when we should get down in sackcloth and ashes, and mourn because we have enemies? Is it safe to judge a man's usefulness in the world altogether by the number of enemies he makes ? We claim not. His enemies may prove him right, and also may prove him wronk.

C Grace, local men. the former ex-manager and the latter the manager of the local exchange, who have closed an agreement to take over the local exchange from the Union Telephone company report that over out) patrons have signed up to re sume service and more are falling into line every day. It is confidently ex pected that nearly 650 of the 700 strik ing patrons will sign up for re-con- rection. Rates in effect prior to April 1, 1921, will be put into effect This is the point on which the disagreement arose, the patrons refusing to stand for the 23 per cent increase in rates granted by the state railway commas' sion. The Union Telephone company closed the local exchange on the 18th inst., permission to do so having been granted by the commission. No long distance calls are as yet available. Mr. Gesler states that the new concern will open the exchange gome time this week. Goshen County Land Restored to Entry by Uncle Samuel The register and receiver of the U. S.

Minort, Taster of the First Baptist Church, Alliance For instance. Paul says that we may make enemies by doing wrong. Cor. 3:25. "He that doeth wrong shall re ceive for the wrong which he hath done." In doing wrong we make God our enemy. Isaiah said that the sraelites by their wicked lives com pelled God to become their enemy, even to the extent of destroying them. We may do our best, and make enemies thereby, but on the other hand we may do our worst and also make enemies. The former may be com mendable, the latter is never right. If we do right, men will place evil construction upon our acta, but we will not be held responsible for a mistaken opinion. However if we do wrong and thereby make enemies, God does not promise to deliver us from these. Airain. we are told that we may make enemies by doing nothing. Luke 12:13. Here again Chnst will not come to our rescue. The "do nothings nave a very small place in the heart of God. Then, we make enemies in ways that u-o rnnnnt toll how. Cor. 4:14. Demas. once a bosom friend of Paul, became one of Paul s worst cntics, and raui could never fathom why he became such a bitter enemy. So with us we make enemies and often we are at a loss as to how these became such. But after we know we have them. how shall we treat them? This is; a TwrnlviTir finest inn to the man who . wants to do the right thing by friend and foe. tint, we snouia ireat mem cautiously. Micah 7:6. One good way in in art tka it vrtll Hid not ItTlflW theV I fl w W mjKT m . vv - - - f J were working against you. Remember , that as christians we are 10 see meir , wAifnre as much after thev become. enemies as we did before they became such. Again, we should treat them as kind ly as they will allow us to. Rom. 12:20. Feed him, water him. if you lind mm hungry or thistry. Not in a pompous wav, hut c-uietly, unanimously. Do not overdo it, however, for he may re sent such treatment. Another srood wav of treating them is to trv to win them as friends. Luke 6.35. Y'ou perhaps have read of the ancient king who said he was going to destroy a rebellious nation that had . given his country trouble for centuries. He left with a handful of men, and was gone for several years. In due time he returned, and his people asked , him nhrkii t Via former rebellious people. Had he destroyed them? Y'es, but what is this about their prosperity? I have destroyed them, by making them mv friends," replied the monarch. This is a better method but not al ways the easiest Let us show ourselves friendly whether they do or not. There is one priviltre that they cannot rob you of, and that is the privilge of praying for them, and yourself frequently. Ex 10:- 16. Again we are to love them. main. 5:43-44. This is not easy to do, how ever, God will make it possible for us to do even this if we trust him. How to avoid making enemies: First, guard the tongue, Prov. 18:21; Second, keep good fences, Psalm 41:9; Again keep on the popular side of things, Luke 6:26. "Woe unto you when all men speak well of you." But the best way to avoid making enemies is the following. Don't stay on earth too long, die as soon as possible. Re member that the only enemy we ore to rejoice in making is the one that is made because or our laitntuiness io right. Maybe we haven't as many of these as we think. The things they sav of us must he false before we can pride ourselves about our enemies. By watching every' dangerous shoal we can avoid many of these so-cal.ed enemies. According to a naturalist, the mile bird sings less sweetly after the young are hatched. He has to get out then and hustle for victuals. The reason why journalists hive such a hard time guessing what the diplomats will do next is that the diplomats have the same trouble. It's about time the authorities were taking steps to reduce the high cost of holdups. They've already invented talking movies.
