HOLYOKE SHUTS OUT HAXTUN IN FIRST GAME OF NORTHEASTERN LEAGUE The Northeastern Colorado Football league has started In anew, owing to some teams In the league having been playing Ineligible players. The games played prior to the ruling of the officials have been thrown out. The league now comprises Holyoke, Haxtun, Sterling, Merino. Brush, Ak ron, Yuma and Wray. Tile Holyoke high school met Hax tun on the local gridiron Saturday afternoon in the first game of the new schedule and administered a 9—o defeat. A stiff breeze was all that kept the weather from being ideal for football; but after playing in the hur ricane on the Monday before, Satur day's wind seemed but a zephyr to the local eleven. Holyoke won the toss and chose to receive. They were given the north goal. The ball was kept in Haxtun's territory during the fcrst quarter, and the locals made a touch • down just before the whistle blew for the end of the quarter. The long est gain was made by Scunelder on the “Aggie" play. Edgar made the touchdown from the seven yard lihe soon after, when he recovered a fum ble and slipped through a hole in the line. He kicked goal. Haxtun came within two feet of making a touchdown in the second quarter, the man earning the ball rolling out of bounds and into the crowd on the sidelines when tackled. They then lost the ball on a fumble and Holyoke punted. Haxtun made the mistake of taking the kickoff in the third quarter at the goal Instead of letting it go and have the ball brought out twenty yards. They came out to the middle of the field, however, before losing the ball, being helped by penalties on their opponents. They were soon penalized also, and finally fumbled on the fourth down, only four yeards from their goal. Holyoke failed to make the touchdowu. Haxtun taking the ball. Holyoke made a touchback when Haxtun fumbled and let the ball roll behind the goal In attempt ing to punt, the down being made well back of the goal posts and a Haxtun man barely on the pigskin in time to prevent Holyoke from secur ing a touchdown. Up to the last quarter the playing had practically all been on the south side of the field, but when goals were changed at the beginning of the last quarter the local eleven tried hard for another touchdown. They came within a yard of accomplishing it when Haxtun was penalised, but lost on down.*. They lost their last chance on a fumble Into the crowd. No very brilliant plays were made on either side, the gains being small, j and neither side was able to work a forward pass. The local eleven 1 carried the light durlßS three quarters ) and after the second quarter was never In danger. The strong Starling eleven Invades! the locals’ territory tomorrow, and 1 the Holyoke boys will be put to the real test of their prowess. If the unexpected always happens, why not expect It?

CAMP AT HAXTUN I At the meetig of I. O. O. F. lodge | No. 76, Tuesday evening, action was j taken on the organisation of a new Encampment for Holyoke. Haxtun .and Fleming Odd Fellows. Members 1 from the neighboring towns were 'present, and it was decided to have ' the Camp at Haxtun, making it equal j ly convenient for Holyoke and Flem ing members. The matter is now in charge of a committee and formation will take place as soon as a charter is received. Visittug members from Haxtun and ! Fleming were given the glad hand and some good eats by the local mem bers at the meeting Tuesday even nlg. CHANGE IN NAME Headers will observe that The State Herald Is now The Phillips County Herald. The old name, like the fellow who kept adding to the list of those he could lick, and re turned with a face resembling a mod ern hamburger steau, took in too much territory. If l the Herald were aa sensational as some of the Denver papers, its former name might t»e all right. And it might not have been too large for the former editors, but It is for us. Having never been able to run on high, we will do well to run a county paper, hence the dropping of the state/ rtlon of the name. / THE NEW ELEVATOR Work on the new E. E. Smith ele vator is going right along, the pres ent weather being most favorable. The building will be finished about January 1. and will have a 35,000 bushel capacity. Its height is 80 feet above the tracks. Mr. Smith was formerly a member of the Relmer-Smlth Grain Company, which was dissolved recently. Mr. Paul Keitner now being sole owmer of the local elevator and a half own er in the Paoli plant, his brother Churles Reitner, being half owner and manager at Paoli. NEW ENGINE ARRIVES The new 150 K. V. A. engine, which is to be Installed at the muncipal light plank has arrived ana will soon be in place. As the bill of lading has not arrived. It is still on tne car. The eugine now in operation Is a 250 K. V. A. The new engine was purchased for emergencies and will be ready when additional power Is needed. The present boiler is large enough to mu both engines. Holyoke has a splendid lighting plant, with twenty-four hour service. GOOD WATER 1 There Is nothing better than a i drink of good water. This has al [ways been true, though in times past some people did not care much for it only aa a chaaer. Since the elgh [ teenth amendment has taken hold, many prefer water to that which has only one-half ef one per cent kick. Colorado Springs boasts of Its pure, 'mountain soft water, but it has noth ing on Holyoke. The water here is las good as we ever drank, and so soft It needs no breaking.

The streets were well. litered with undent and modern ve-1 hides, furm impliments, telephone poles, etc. Any parent ordinarily would be classed harsh and cruel if he request of his son or daughter that he or she remain up until about twelve bells und then go forth in the darkness and tug und sweat to place upon the streets some discarded piece of work of man, colored by rust and set by the abrasions of time. But, on Hallowe'en it is different. The par ent who objects to such aiiuual pleas ure is a bear and a grouch. A number of enjoyable Hallowe'en parties were held and numerous win dows wore decorated with grinning pumpkins, hluck cuts, and autumn colorings. THOSE RED LIGHTS Those red lights ut nignt In the center of the street intersections in the business district make us u bit skittish. Down ut Colorado Springs the ruby orbs mean the police are wanted, fire conditions, or danger ahead.

We have equip ped The Herald with everything tor success. It la an old saying that you can't saw wood with a hammer. Nor can one he used to run a newspaper successfully. $2.00 PER YEAR GOOD PAPER—GOOD TOWN A newspaper Is generally taken a* an index to a town. It reflects the business life of the place where It It published, us well as the pep an<| ability of its editor. When a strang er picks up u paper full of good adf und sparkling with live news, he en thusiastically exclaims, "By George, that Is a good town." Barring the present quietness there is every indication that Holyoke It u good town. We are going to make The Herald a clean, readable paper, toward which a liberal patronage will l>o a big lift on a grade. A newspaper, when properly man aged, is as much of uu uplift to a community us churches and schools. Few people would locate In a town where there were no ncnools or churches, und a town of uny size without a good newspaper causes al most us much comment. HERALD HAS BIBLE In taking over The Herald we found the office contained the Book of Books—the Bible—though quite duaty. The second office we worked In, where we were foreman for ten years, the editor said he could not run a paper without a Bible, if it did get pretty dusty at times. He depart ed this life in May, 1897, but we did not forget his remark, and have never tried to run a shop without the Great ; Book. We huve the Bible our good moth er gave us when arriving at the age of twenty-one, und refer to it suffi ciently often to keep it free from dust. Along with the Bible we keep a small dictionary our futher gave us when a lad ut school in 1885. We could not run a printshop with out u Bible and dictionary. SOCIABILITY The longer w’e roam over this big country the more are we convinced that sociability Is one of the biggest of business assets. While we have always been Khort In montery mutters, we are pleased that we have been long on sociability. There is nothing cheaper in the world than sociability. We have a big stock on hand. Call aud sample it. All it will cost is a little time. JUNIOR HALLOWE'EN PARTY The Presbyterian juniors enjoyed a very Jolly Hallowe'en party In the busenu-ut of the church last Friday evening.
