We are glad to note that the people
of Webster county are gradually
awakenins to the importance of mak
ing an effort to secure a railroad at
this point. Meetings are being held
and considerable interest manifested.
It may be of interest to advertisers
to know that their advertisements,
aud locals are regularly charged up to
them, and that they will be expected
to settle for the fame, with the pio
prietor of the Chief.
Mr. John Noyes, a resident of
Maiue, who is at present a guest of
Rev. Maxwell, lightei up the gloom
of our sanctum, with hs genial coun
tenance last Tuesday, and ordered the
CniEF sent to his father iu Maine.
Plant Trees. Every man who
owns proi-ert in Red Cload should
ornament his premises with trees.
Nothing, perhaps, adds more to the
beauty and lovhness of a town than
shade trees, besides it is conductive oft
health. The time for planting trees of their favorable locaiiou. The col
has arrived, and we hope our citizens - umns of the Chief are open for the
ill impiovc it. i discussion of the subject.

citizens oi ouuui county wuu uuve
been in the habit of trading at Red
Cloud, to "come away while there is
yet time, lest by their intercourse with
the citizens of Red Cloud, they be
come contaminated." We venture
the assertion that the gentlemen of
Smith count), who trade ;t Red
Cloud, do so because it. Is to their in
terest, ant! they like to be "coutatmna
ted" in that way.
It has been suggested that it would
be a good idea to have a few thousand
pamphlets printed for gratuitous dis
tribution from this county. Thi patn
oblets to coutain a true and concise
history of Webster couuty, setting
forth its advantages and resources, etc.
etc. The good that would result to
Webster county from a thoroueh and
systematic course of judicious advertis
ing, would more thau pay three times
over for the small expense of the same.
And we hope our citizens wdl at an
early day, take the matter under their
favorable consideration. Instances
have came under our observation
where certain counties have increased
in population and wealth far beyond
that of their sister counties, possess
ing equal natural advantages, and this
desirable result was onhbrougbt aboat
by a thorough coilrse of advertising ;

izens to let the outside world k no

For many years we have made two
medaciues suited to the ailments of a
vast class of sufferers. Thousands of
cures have been made by them, and in
fact, the word failure could not be cou
pled with them. But within the last
two years counterfeits of our medaciner
have sprung up, dangerous in their
cloce imitation of ou trade mark. To
secure the people we have placed upon
each genuine box of Hollo way s Oint
ment the fac simile of the signature of
our agent, Mr. Jos. Haydock. To coun
terfeit is felony. We shall relentlessly
pursue anyone who imitates this with
the utmost Tigor of the law. We most
earnestly beg that the great mass of
the American people will aid us in our
efforts to protect their health, and help
us in our task of bringing these most
unprinci naled men to the bar of ius-
tiee. Uniformly refuse to purchase Med !
acmes purporting to be ours unless Mr.
Joe. Haydock' s signature is attached
to each box of rills or pot of Oint
ment and the end will soon be reached.
