The RedGloud Chief.
FRIDAY. JAN. 11, 1884
CoBBaed for The Chief.
BY WALTEB LA POE.
Love is not a thing of passion,
Not a tiling of senses rife,.
But the essence of afection
And enlivens human life.
We are creatures of sensation,
Of passions and affections too,
But the noblest of creation
Learn their passions to subdue.
What is man without affection ?
Without true love within his soul ?
Where on earth is there attraction
For such a narrow withered soul?
But the man who loves a maiden,
Needs but to know that she loves him,
To make his love as the love of Eden,
And teach that true love's no whim.
See him as he looks upon her,
Looks into her lovely face.
His heart is full of love and honor,
Hers of purity and grace.
Shall they marry and forever
Join their love in love's embrace ?
Or shall they part and never, never
More behold each other's face ?
One's as likely as the other,
None can tell what may take place,
She may have an objecting mother,
Or he may see a fairer face.
Is'nt it as you remember,
(It seems to .ne a hard behest,)
That the man is of the fewest number
Who marries the woman that suits
BILL KYE RESIGNS.
To the. President of the United States :
Sir I beg leave at this time to offic
ially tender my resignation as post
master at this place and in due form
to deliver the great seal and the key
of the front door of the office. The
safe combination is set on the numbers
33, 66, and 99, though I do not re
member at this moment which comes
first, or how many times you revolve
the knob, or which direction you should
turn it at first in order to make it op
erate. There is some mining stock in my
private drawer in the safe, which I
have not yet removed. This stock you
may have if you desire it. It is a lux
ury, but you can have it. I have decid
ed to keep a horse instead of this min
ing stock. The horse may not be so
pretty, but it will cost less to keep
You will find the postal cards that
have not leen used under the distrib
uting table, and the coal down n the
cellar. If the stoves draw too hard
close the damper in the pipe and shut
the general delivery window.
Looking over my stormy and event
ful administration as postmaster hero,
I find abundant cause for thanksgiving.
At the time I entered upon the duties
of my office the department was not
yet on a paying basis. It was not even
self-sustaining. Since that time, with
the active co-operation of chief execu
tive and the heads of departments, I
have been able to make our postal
system a paying one, and on top of
that I am now able to reduce the tariff
on average-tized letters from three to
two cents. I might add that this is
rather too-too, but I will not say any
thing that might seem undignified in
an official resignation which is to be
come a matter of history.
Through all the vicissitudes of a
tempestuous term, of office I have safe
ly passed. I am able to turn over the
office today in a highly improved con
dition, and to present a purified and
renovated institution to my successor.
Acting under the advice of General
Hatton a year ago, I removed the
feather bed with which my prdecessor,
Deacon Hayford, had bolstered up his
administration by stuffing the window,
and substituted glass. Finding noth
ing in the book of instructions to post
masters which made the feather bed a
part ot my official duties, I filed it
away in an obscure place and burned
it in effigy, also in the gloaming. This
act maddened my predecssor to such
a degree that he then and there be
came a candidate for justice of the
peace on a democratic ticket. The
democratic party was able, however,
with what aid it secured from the re
publicans, to plow the old man under
to a great degree.
It was not long after I had taken my
official oathbefore an era of unexain-
vim cupir. xnu jiiii.u vi ntfi .iii-u mi
a remarkable altitude, and other vegct-
ables commanded a good figure and
ready market. We then began to
make active preparations for the intro
duction of the strawberry roan two
cent stamps and black-aud-tan postal
note. One reform has crowded upon
the heels of another until the country
is today upon the foam crested wave of
Mr. President, I cannot close this let
ter without thanking you and all the
heads of departments at Washington,
for your aictive, cheery and prompt co
operation in these matters. You can
do as you see fit, of course, about in
corporating this idea into your Thanks
giving proclamation, but rest assured
it would not be ill-timed or inoportuue.
It is not alone a credit to myself. It
reflects credit upon the administration
I need not say that I herewith trans
mit my resignation with great sorrow
and regret. We have toiled on to
gether month after month, asking for
no reward except the innate conscious
ness of recitude and the salary fixed by
law. Now we are to separate. Here
the roads seem to fork, as it were, and
you and I and the cabinet must leave
each other at this paint.
You will find the key under the door
mat, and you had better turn the cat
out at night when you close the office.
If she does not go readily you can
make it clear to her mind be throwing
the canceling stamp at her.
If Deacon Hayford does not pay up
his box rent you may as well put his
mail in the general delivery, and when
Bob Head gets drunk, and insists on a
letter from one of Lis wives every day
in the week, you can salute him
through the box delivery with an old
Queen Anne tomahawk which you will
find near the Etruscan water pail.
This will not in any manner surprise
either of these parties.
Tears are unavailing. I once more
become a private citizen, clothed only
with the right to read such postal cards
as may be addressed to me personally,
and to curse the inefficiency of the
postoffice department. I may be in
error :is to the attributes of the Ameri
can citizen, but I believe the above to
be most prominent. I believe the vot
ing class to be divided into two parties,
viz., those who are in the postal service
and those who are mad because they
cannot receive a registered letter every
fifteen minutes of each day, including
Mr. President, as an official of this
government I now retire. My term of
office would not expire until 1886. I
must therefore beg pardon for my ec
centricity in resigning. It will be best
perhaps to keep the heart-breaking
news from the ears of European pow
ers until the dangers of a financial
panic are fully past. Then hurl it
broadcast with a sickening thud.
Very respectfully yours,
A WIDE AWAKE DRUGGIST.
Mr. Henry Cook is always wide
awake in his business, and spares no
pains to secure the best of every article
in his line. He has secured the agency
for the celebrated Dr. King's New Dis
covery for consumption. The only cer
tain cure known for consumption,
coughs, colds, hoarseness, asthma, hay
fever, bronchitis, or any affection of
the throat and lungs. Sold on posi
tive guarantee. Will give you a trial
bottle free. 3
THOUSANDS SAY SO.
Mr. T. W. Atkins, Girard, Kans.,
writes: 1 never Hesitate to recom
mend your Electric Bitters to my cus
tomers, they give entire satisfaction
and are rapid sellers." Electric Bit
ters are the purest and best medicine
known and will positively cure kidney
i and liver complaints, purify the blood
and regulate the bowels. JNo family
can afford to be without them. They
will save hundreds of dollars in doctor's
bills every year. Sold at fifty cents a
bottle by Henry Cook. 3
DONT SPILL THE MILK.
"There is no use crying over spilled
milk," Bays the old saw. If you are
not only bald, but have no life in the
roots of your hair, there is no use cry
ing over that, either. Take both time
and yourself by the forelock while
there is a forelock left. Apply Park
er's Hair Balsam to your hair before
matters get worse. It will arrest the
falling off of your hair and restore its
original color, gloss and softness. It is
a perfect dressing withal, clean, richly
perfumed, cools and heals the scalp.

WILL IT PAY f
We take the following article from
the Diary Former, which we are al
lowed to copy through the courtesy of
Mr. J. H. Smith, manager of the Red
Cloud creamery. We judge that it
should be read by every farmer in
Webster county ;
We are asked will it pay to purchase
grain to feed to the milk cows ? It is
upon this principle that the dairy busi
ness is run around Elgin, Illinoi-:. The
dairymen in that vicinity purchase car
loads of mill feed, and feed their cows
in the very best manner all the time,
winter and summer. Forcing them all
the time to give all milk possible. Aud
the dairymen have grown rich follow
ing this plan. At the present, while
the creameries in this vicinity can
hardly get cream enough to justify
running. There is sold weekly on the
Elgin Board of Trade in the vicinity
$75,000 worth of butter and cheese.
These dairy products are produced
mainiy within twenty miles of Elgin.
Imagine for a moment what the result
would be were the creameries of Lucas
county disbursing $75,000 per week.
The complaint of hard times would
soon cease. The mortgages on the
farms would soon melt away, New
barns and fine houses would appear on
all the farms. How is it about Elgin ?
The farmers are wealthy. They have
fine houses and barns. What placed
them in this situation 7 The answer is
butter and cheese, or more briefly still,
the cow. The cow cared for in the
very best manner. The farmers of
Kane county, Illinois, have no advan
tage over the farmers of Lucas county
as to climate or other requisites for
dairying. In fact we think this county
superior. All that is needed is the
cows and the care. The idea enter
tained by some that dairying is a small
business and only keen a few cows to
be milked by the hired girl, or over
taxed wife, to raise a little pin money,
must be got rid of, and the business
taken hold of in earnest, with a deter
mination of making it a success. There
is no other business that insures a bet
ter return if rightly managed, none
more honorable or elevating; none
that insures financial independence

church wants to secure a new pastor it
can scarcely take a surer course to drive
off desirable men than by maligning the

visit. Leading him into the sitting
room, which was dusty, dirty and dis
orderly, he requested his wife to play
