Since spring has clothed all nature

notice the beautiful appearance of Mr.

A new grist mill has just been com

situated on Elm creek, four miles east
of Red Cloud. Those gentlemen are
well known by the people of our coun

dealing men. They will do a large
share of the milling business in south
western Nebraska. Nuckolls County

Red Cloud is still thriving, and new
buildings are going up constantly.
Among the new additions since last
fall may be mentioned the following :
M R. Bentley has elected a inc
building with a gable roof reminding
us of the manoious of out forefathers
on the Cape Ann shore It is 30x22,
and 14 feet high and occupied by the
Mrs. Bentley & Cook as a millinery
aud dress-making establishment. The
back room is used for kitchen and din
ing room, and is a model of neatnes.
It will repay one to visit this place
and see the stock of goods and find
out what drives the revolving hat rack
wbkh makes so conspicuous an attrac
tion from the street.
On tho next lot is another new
building not yet finished, belonging to
W. N. Richardson, to be used as an
office. Mr. Richardson is doing a large
business for this country in cattle and
hogs, and hi3 office will be an orna
ment to the town.
Hampton It Ralston have been in
their new blacksmith shop for some
time, and we should judge they are
doing a good business.
Mitchell & Morhart have erected a
building in which to keep their ma
chinery from the weather, and for a
J. C. Warner has erected an addi
tion to his hotel which will be used for
a sample room. Geo. Zeiss is also ad
ding anothct room in the rear of the
"Boys Home." Rev. Geo. O. Yeiser
has bought aud repaired the bouse
formerly occupied by Michael Cook,
and now has a neat and attractive res
idence. The "La Clede" has changed name
and owner aud is now refitted and run
by A. J. Rennecker who fills the hun

The "Freighter's Cook House"
built by J. D. Post has been a resort,
and made a home for mauy a teamster
during the winter.
Mr. Thomas has a fine new residence

helps to fill the gap on the west side,
and when painted will be a neat look

Rev. Yeiser has been quite sick-the
past week. He has many friends in
this community and' now in his time
of affliction he should be remembered
with more than the sympathy of
words. Notice his appointments in
If the people generally are not' satis
fied with the papeMhis week", please
remember that nobody is responsible.
If we have said anything that we are
sorry for we are willing to be forgiven:
Next week will find the Chief under
the proper helmsman.

about one of its exchanges :
"Next comes the Red Cloud Chief;
in this vivacious little chatter-box we
expected the Chief to come to us-look--
tog- ugly-bristling with scalping knives
and as full of bloody insinuations as a
mosquito or bed bug ; but instead, we
find that-from the "old sinner" down
to -the ' devil," thoy all deny the

The schools closed last- Thursday,
with the intention of enjoying a picnic
on Friday, but were disappointed on
account of the rain. The term was
five months in length and about 4r
pupils were enrolled in the higher di
partment and nearly 30 in the pri
mary. Some of- the pupils have studi
ed algebra, natural history and Phi
losophy. Several of the pupils among
whom were Chas. Ludlow, Willie
.Mitchell, James Maxwell, Fred. Lutz,
reddie Richardson and Lora McBride
have shown that scholars can tend to
thorrown business,, and not whisper
without leave During the whole term
no official visits were made by the Co.

Lmendation to the teacher and nunils.
but we fail to see it in tbat light.-The
teacher wishes to express his thanks
to the pupils for their may little
kindnesses shown him during the sev

As we seated ourself- as- editor nro
tern for the week (the editor being ab
sent) we did not suppose we had any
editorial notoriety, bat almost the first
thing that flitted across oar vision was
the following "seadoff" from the
Pairbeld flews, which makes
change our mind slightly:
"Nuakolls county has one good- pa
