The Red Cloud Chief
All Are Invited !
Mrs. S. R. McBride,
A.C. HOSMER, - - Proprietor
FRIDAY. APRIL r 1884.
Mr. Editor, you need not be sur
prised at the sudden demise of myself
and isrotlier "law," as we have oiten,
under the dire displejiaure of tiiat lazy
I will try and keep cool till the Btorm
blows over ; if it does, and I remain
unhurt you may expect to hear from
This part of the county appears to
be well adapted to stock raising. Tho
first we notice are Messrs. Moore &
Gardner, cattle men. They have a
fine herd of about 150 head. Mr. Shel
don has a fine drove of sheep and cat
tlev He says that it pays to handle
eheep in this country, and judging
from the number that are engaged in
it it does pay big.
Mr. Charles Husson and also Win.
Arnold are engaged extensively in the
Mr. Wells is in the dairy business ;
also, Mr. G. W. Frances, who combines
farming, dairying, and hog raising on
his farm. It is needless to add that
these men are prospering and are well
pleased-with Nebraska. Ekami.
Farmers' have been sowing large
erpps of small grain. There will not
be many acres of broken ground lay
ing idle this season.
Wo would advise every farmer to let
the prairie grass stay on his farm, and
not burn it oil' because it makes a nice
fire. We think if the farmers would
Btop and consider the benefit there is
in letting the grass be, there would not
be so much burned. We believe that
every foot land that is not under culti
vation had a heavy coat of grass lay
ing on it, we would not have so much
liot wind. We all know that the ground
is dry and hot. I proved this when I
was a boy, and went in my bare feet,
for when I was walking along the
road it was so hot it would burn my
feet, while on either side in the grass
it was cool and nice. One of our neigh
bors, the other day put out fire and let
it run where it pleased, so it run across
his wheat stubble and burnt his straw
stack. We don't know how much other
damage it did. We have a law against
starting fires, and if the law was en
forced there would be less accidents
Squire Ward, of Cowles, is putting
up office in Cowles. Esaws Dreams.
HERE AND THERE.
My first stop on Wednesday was at
Cowles. We found the beautiful em
bryo city quiet, with "Boss" Ward
holding supreme sway over the des
tines ot the future metropolis of Web
ster county. Checkers appear to be
the only game in which the good peo
ple of Cowles are interested. Going
north-east three miles we next stop
ped at the home of Messrs, l'lUnam &
Crosbv, and found good old Mother
Crosby enjoying some relief from her
old disease, dropsy, having recently
submitted to an operation performed
by Dr. Smith, of Guide Rock. Every
thing abeut this farm bears evidence
of the thrift and enterprise for which
these gentlemen are known. We here
met Miss Putnam, a teacher of twelve
years experience, now employed in
the Red Cloud schools, enjoying a va
cation visiting her brother and si&ters.
Thedistrict board of Cowles are anx
ious to secure the services of Miss Put
nam for the next ten months. Five
miles east brought us to the new post
office of Berne, where we met thelpost
master, Captain Blaine happy and con
tented as ever. In this neighborhood
we found good old father Orr suffering
with a temporary illness, with all his
neighbors expressing their hopes that
he would speedily recover. During
Wednesday night we partook of tho
hospitality of David M earns and fam
ily. While speaking of this neighbor
hood we would say that for good peo
ple it excclls an' place we were ever
in, and we know this from experience,
for we have recently passed some few
months of our life there. We next
had the pleasure of a little chat with
the Emighs. These genial gentlemen
are. doing a fine stock business, and
their large, well-kept, and commodious
buildings remind ns of old homes in
the East. James T. Emigh informed
us that he was going east soon to im
port a herd of 300 blooded cattle. Al
though our friend is large and portly,
he is a man that walks a mile in eight
minutes. He is go-a-head-it-ive, and
we are glad to note his success. Mr.
Harrison Rimdell, one mile north of
Emighs", has recently located and will
purely soon succeed in making a fine
farm and home, for he is a worker, and
withall a genial and pleasant gentle
man. We found Mr. Sheldon four
miles north of Cowles, very earnestly
endeavoring to get his new house com
pleted '"to-get a place to store bis fam
ily." Mr. Hassan, of the firm of Has
san Bros., sheep raisers, north of
Cowles, met us with that whole souled
countenance for which he is noted.
This firm are prosperous and happy
of course. Mr. Mallick and Mr. Hiil
have recently rented farms near Has
san Bros., for a term of five years, and
are well pleased with theirlocations
and are determined to succeed. Over
Friday night we were pleasantly enter
tained at the home of Mr. M.E Sharp,
who about four months ago bought
and moved on to the farm owned by
Mr. Reed, Batin, P. O. Mr. S. is a
quiet earnest gentleman, and already
has one of the very comfortable houses
of this county. Your space, I pre
sume, will not admit of further notes
this week, and I will therefore close by
remarking that fin my rambles this
week. I everywhere met with expres
sions of confidence for the coming
6eajson among the farmers.
