On last Saturday, March 20, Law

J intoxicated to that extent that he was
quarrelsome and disagreeable. The
The two men in question became in
volved in a quarrel which resulted in
Cox striking Tobin over the head, as
alleged, with a billiard cue, fracturing
his skull, from which effect Tobin died
at 3:15 a. m. on last Thursday. Cox
was immediately arrested by Consta
ble Bird and brought to Bed Cioud,
where he was turned over to Sheriff
Warren for safe keeping. Webster
county having no jail, or safe place to
keep a prisoner. Cox begged the Sher
iff to take him to Lincoln, fearing that
the people in their wrath would rise
up and deal out summary vengeance
according to the style of J udge L3 nch
consequently the sherifi' conveyed the
prisoner to Lincoln and there deposit
ed him in the penitentiary, where he
was kept until Wednesday, when he
was taken to Blue Hill for a prelimin
ary examination. The aJi'rav caused a
great deal of excitement at Blue Hill,
as both parties were we! 1 known in that
vicinity. The T'unr of Blue Hill, savs

Such scenes as these are becoming
alarmingly too frequent in nearly ev
ery state in the I'liion, and it seems
that very little value is placed upon
human life when it suits man's pur
pose to remove a being that is suppos-
i ed to be an olMaie in bis path. Courts
and juries should be a litlie firmer in

Mother Hubbard Ball.
On last Tuesday evening oecured the
second ball of the season given by the
Bed Cloud cornet band. The band
hoys seem to have the happy faculty of
making "extra hits" in giving balls, as
every one so far has been successful
beyond expectation. The first masquer
ade ball given a few weeks since was a
great attraction, and the most exten
sively patronized entertainment ever
given in the city. This encouraged the
boys in the belief that the people of
Bed Cloud appreciated their efforts to
give them a first-class cornet band, and
turned out ai iiviide that their treasury
might became replete with shining
shekels Appreciating the kindness of
tht' people, the band boys determined
to give them another entertainment
that would he fully equal to the first
ball given. As a result of this deter
mination it was decided togivoaMoth
er Hubbard ball which took place on
Tuesday evening as mentioned above,
and which was a decided success in ev
ery respect. It was indeed a novel and
curious sight to see so many varieties
in Mother Hubbard suits worn by the
ladies, and the outfits worn by the gen
tlemen put a person in mind of the
good old days of yore when such cos
tumes as worn on this occasion were in
the height of fashion. At a conven
ient hour the edict went forth to un
mask, and from that time on the mer-
jfef "?. &' IS ?$&
proaehing and that it was time to cease
iiiincing aim return to tneir various
homes. It was certainly one of the
most pleasant balls yet given in the
city, and will long be remembered as
such by all who took part in it. The
band boys are to be congratulated in
giv.nt; such satisfactory entertainments
as they have done so far, and we can
assure them that their effort-: are duly
appreciated by all of the lovers of the
Goddess Terpsichore. The proceeds of
the ball will be used in procuring new
instruments by which the band will be
fully equipped to compete with any
such organization in the state. It is
certain that very few bands in Nebras
ka, taking the time the hojs have prac
ticed, can discount the Bed Cloud cor
net band, which fact The Chief feels
proud of. The boys have our best wish
es for success and we hope they will at
no late day give the people another en
tertainment of a similar nature. The
music furnished on the occasion was
very fine and did credit to the parties
who had it in charge. The receipts
were about ?i().
Rnslnpss Men" 3IeotInr.
On Ia-st Monday night, pursuant to
call of the president, the business men
of Bed Cloud assembled at W. 11.
Goodall it Co.'s office, for tho purpose
of hearing what progress had been
made in the Red Cloud and South
western railway. The work of getting
the road in shape to incorporate was
reported to be favorably moving for
ward. On motion it was ordered that
a committee be appointed to draft ar
ticles ol incorporation for the Nebras
ka part, of the road. The committee
was appointed and the work will he
speedily attended to. It is to be hoped
that the B. it M. will take hold of this
matter as the people are generally
anxious to have a South-wertern oiulet.
THE IT.MP FACTORY.
The proposition for a foundry and
pump factory was taken up, ami the
proposition of Badger fc Son. of Osh
kosh. Wis., to establish the same, was
discussed. Badger Ac Son want $3000
for the right to manufacture their
Clough pump, which our people seem
to be favorably inclined to grant. Then
it was proposed to form a stock com-
:.i :...i ..,. .i. ..r .- ..

tore the pumps and run the foundry.
The business men have taken hold of
the matter with a determination of
making it a success, and The Chief
believes that ere many weeks Red
Cloud will have secured one important
manufacturing establishment within
her borders. So much for an enter
prising set of business men. Such
things as these are what makes a town
boom, and the more we have the more
boom we will brng to our city. No
better point in Nebraska could have
been selected for such an enterprise,
and if our people put their shoulders
, to the wheel and work together we are
bound to win. The golden opportun
ity is within our grasp, and to letitslip
through our fingers would be a fatal

Parker, in justice court, before. Justice
Ballinger was set for trial yesterday.
Parker appeared and by his attorney,
G. It. Chaney, of Red Cloud, made a
motion to dissolve the attachment, and
C. Frahm & Co., by their attorneys,
Messrs Tanner it Capps, filed a motion
fora continuance. After considerable
able and earnest skirmishing upon both
sides the case Mr. Chaney showed
that he was no novice in attach
ment cases, and Attorney Capps
has been through too many of them in
this city to be caught napping. We ex
pect to see some very skilful work when
thc case finally comes to trial.

We again feel like calling the atten
tion of the people to Arbor Day, feel
ing as we do that it is one of the most,
important holidays that we have in"
the state, from the fact that it direct!y
interests every property owner in the
state who has the enterprise and mor
al worth to care for and beautify his
home. Trees both fruit and orna
mental should be set out, and in the
years to come we will not be sorry that
wo did so, when we behold the goodly
etl'et they will have produced a few
years hence. Then, let every person
make it his or her duty to procure
trees of some sort and set them out
carefully so that thev will be sure to
grow. A little money spent now will be
worth hundreds of dollars to any resi
dence or farm property ten years from
this date. Do not say that there is
plenty of time to do this, and wait un
til a more convenient time, but do it
now without fail. It is indeed a vory
important thing and we do hope tho
people will not pass the day idly by
without doing their duty.
Os last Saturday evening Cyrene
Conimandry, Knights. Templar, was
instituted sn this city. Tho organiza
tion of the Conimandry has been un
der contemplation for some months,
and finally the date was fixed for Satur
day evening, at which time a delega
tion of the brothrcn from Hastings"
came down and assisted the Red Cioud
boys in the institution of Cyrene Com
ma ndry. Several applicants wero
ready, and the various degrees of
Knighthood were confered upon them.
The initiatory ecremonics'took'tho bet
ter part of the night. All the candi
dates expressed themselves as being
highly pleased with the work. The
chief hopes that the Conynandry will
he successful, and source of great bene
fit to its members. The Hastings hoys
were met at the depot by the Red
Cloud Cornet Band and escorted up
town. The band boys acquitted them
selves splendidly, and done themselves1
great credit. During the night a mag
nificent banquet was given to the visit
ing brethren and general good timo in
Os Monday afternoon oecured the
annual school meeting for this dis
trict. It was decided that a tax levy
of 1G mills on the dollar be made' for
the purpose of defraying the expenses
of the next . school year. After the
routine business had bean dispensed
with, the election of two directors took
place, which resulted in the selection
of A. J. Kenney and D. B.Span6gle for
threa years each. The meeting then
adjourned to meet at the court-houso
on Monday, May 5, for the purpose of
looking into the matter of establishing
a school building in the south part of
the city, as requested by the citizens of
that part of the school district. In
structions were given the board to find
a suitable location for such a building'
and a place best adapted to the wants
of the people. This is a move in the"
right direction and we are glad to learn
that steps have been taken for tho"
erection of a school house in that end
S. N. Richmond, living in Line pre
cinct, recently had occasion to take"
out of ground some box-elder posts
that had been in the ground seven
years, and what was remarkable about"
the matter the posts were .is sound as
I ulien ey were first set in the ground.
He further savs that on the old Thom
as Kennedy farm, on Walnut Creek,'
box-elder posts were taken from the
ground in a perfect state that had been
in the ground for twelve years. This
is a matter of considerable interest to
the farmers of Nebraska, where timber
is scarce for fencing purposes. They
can produce a box-elder trees in five
years; each tree in that time will mako
three posts, two from the body and one
from the top. This western country is
peculiarly adapted to raising such tim
ber. It is a demonstrated fact that4
box-elder will last well in the ground ,
better than some varieties of hard
