The board of count' commissioners
wisely concluded at their last session
that they could get as good printing at
home as elsewhere, and consequently
ordered that The Chief and Argus do
the work for the coming year. This is
is a most sensible conclusion. We
think that it is altogether improper to
send work out of the county when it
can be done at home, as some counties
in the State have done this year.
All persons desirous of obtaining a

to advertise the town take hold of this
matter and make it a success. There
is no reason why Red Cloud cannot
have lines running direct to Hastings
and Omaha, sis well as her sister towns.

HER NAME WAS WRITTEN THERE
We take the following notice from
the Upper Sandusky (O) Union, in ref
erence to-Miss Dora Gump's death:
There is a lieaper whoso name is Death
And with his sickle keen.
lie reaps the bearded grain at a breath,
And the flowers that grow between.
Twas not in cruelty, not in wrath,
That the Reaper came today;
Twas an angel visited the earth.
And bore the flower away.
It is with a feeling of inexpressible
5nef and sadness that we attempt to in
ite the following lines For the second
time within the past twenty-eight
months the angel of death has swooped
down on the abode of Mrs G W Gump
and laid his icy fingers upon her small
family The first victim was that of a
husband and father, which occurred a
little over two years ago The second
was the death of her only daughter,
Dora V., an interesting young lady,
nearly nineteen years of age, which
occurred" at the residence of Mr and
Mrs Frank Tripp, Jr., her temporary
abode on South Eighth street, shortly
after nine o'clock last Saturday night,
(Feb 16th.) During tho
early part of last June disease came
upon the already delicate frame of the
daughter, aud in such a form as to cre
ate alarm; and acting upon the advice
of friends, the fond mother returned
with her to this city, hist August, in the
hope that a visit to her native heath
might change her condition for the
better. It did for a time but the mala
dy was of a too severe a form as to bid
defiance to medication, and ran its
course in a short time.
For several days prior to her demise
was she trembling on the shores of the
dark river of death, loving hearty pray
ing for her return loving eyes watch
ing her tearfully as she gradually wast
ed away. Her last words, uttered in a
low, feeble voice, were, "1 feel, I feel
that I'm going home." She had all the
care and attention that an indulgent
mother, loving friends and skillful phy
sicians eould bestow, but of what avail
are the workings of human hands and
minds it contrary to the will of Provi
dence. The irresistable "slayer" of all
life only smiles at the efforts to inter
cept his march, Dora was a lovely
girl, and it is sad to think that she
should so early be called lrom among
those she loved and those that loved
her. She was a kind sister and a duti
ful daughter, and was admired by her
young friends and cherished by the
aged. She was bright and accomplish
ed and by her death this city has lost
one of its fairest maidens.
The funeral took place Monday after
noon, the services being conducted at
the house wherein she died, by Rev. D
R Cook, after which the remains were
removed to Oak Hill Cemetery and
there amid the sobs of sorrowing
friends and her young associates con
signed to the silent tomb.
On last Monday evening, the tem
perance workers of Red Cloud assem
bled at the congregational church, and
proceeded to orgauize a Good Templar

pecially do they have great faith in
the cheese business. The only thing
some of them regret is that the factory
does not run all winter, as they can
make much more on cheese than in
butter. Calves, after having milk
about four weeks, can be successfully
fed on whey and oil-cake, flax-seed
meal, or boiled flax seed. So say those
who have tried it, and it is no longer
an experiment. Mr. Arnison, who
keeps about 80 head of cattle, milked
20 cows, mostly 2 year olds, last sum
mer, and patronized the Inavale cheese
factory, and raised his calves as above
indicated, realizing from them an in
come of of $460. He says good cows
would easily bring an average of $35,
or pay for themselves in a single sum
mer. Those two wolves were again seen at
the State Creek bridge. They are
large grey ones. As Rev. G. W. Hum
mel was returning home from quarter
ly conference on Sunday evening with
a friend, they looked out of the buggy
and saw them but a few rods distant
Where are the sportsmen ? Are all
the men on the Republican so busy,
eyen in the dead of winter, that a
party can not be secured to destroy
these wolves before they do somo dep
redations of a very serious natur ?
This is no sensational item. "A word-. .
to the wise i3 sufficient.4' We insists-...- ,
upon it that our next legislature should,
award a bounty for wolf scalps. ,,.
There are vast numbers ot sheep :
kept in this state, and they have so
many enemies that so enterprising
men have been driven out of the bust- ,
ness, as the losses over balance the- r "
profits in some localities. Tfce wolves--I'.v-and
sheep-killing dogs should all be'tw:
destroyed, and sheep owners should W
paid for all such losses out of a fuiaa .,
raised by bounty on wolf scalps, and'.'si .
tax upon every dog. A law to c&rryjf
the above suggestions into effect wouldV''
be hard upon "the wolves and vile 'curs,,
but it would build up Nebraska, bji ad
ding wonderfully to its developiient
and wealth. The people shouldioud-
ly demand such legislation, and then
the politicians will move,and not till,
then. S. W. Cobneb.
