Why i It?
Iii the last few months The Chief
has repeatedly called attention to the
fact thatnumeroiK peopb of the coun
ty had become the victims of street
fakirs, soap peddlers, and other schem
ers, by which they were robbed of their
hard earned money. On last Thurs
day, while the circus was in the city,
the usual number of skinners were on
the streets, and at one place our re
porter noticed several men whose gray
hairs were ripening for the hereafter,
and whose experience in worldly af
fairs should have taught them to know
better, give from five to ten dollars of
their money for a chance to draw five
little pieces ol soap that could be
bought at any of our stores for ten
cents at the outside figure, which they
were induce 1 to believe contained
prizes eqaal in amount to the price
paid for the same by them. But alas !

and young men should by this time
le.nrn better than to try to beat a man
at his own game, and especially so
when the man operating the business
is a rogue, and caculates on cheating
you from the start. There is no man
who throws money away unless he ex
pects a return. The motto that these
fellows go on is "get money honestly
if you can, and if you can't, why get
money," and they follow out the hist
part of the quotation to a dot, and let
the first part take care of itself. There
is no pretention to honesty, aud the
man that takes chances in such games
simply gives away his money for noth
ing. It is time that people should
learn to give the street gamblers a
wide berth. It is their intention to
defraud all, aud if one .ma gets a
prize, it is simply given him in order
to inveigle others into the .. vaiu
hope of winning something for noth-

The twelfth annual exposition of the
Web-ier county agricultural octety
opened on lust Wednesday under the
most favorable circumstance?, and to
eay the lea,t the display in every dc-
partment L- much better than 'could be
or was anticipated under the circum-
stance. Good substantial pen and
stalls were erected for stock. A fiwt
cla) floral and agricultural hall was
put up for the accommodations of fine
arts and farm products. In
the display was excellent and would
have done credit to many older insti
tutions, though our county has only
been settled a little over a dozen years.
These fact-: are a credit to our thrifty,
enterprising farmer, and The CutEt
is heartily glad to be able to chronicle
the results. The exhibitors, or as far
a we could learn, in floral hall and ag
ricultural hall are as follows: J L Mil
ler had a very fine display of ha rues
and h.iddlery hardware, etc. This de
partment was complete and does Mr
Milier credit. C. Wiener, our enter
prising clothing merchant, had an ex
cellent showing of clothing, boots and
shoes, etc Mrs D Terry, of Conies,
made an excellent display of fancy
work. She had a handsome quilt on
exhibition. Mrs W H Cook, of Bed
Cloud, displayed some fine hand em
broidered articles. The ,Home" bak
ery display was splendid. This estab
lishment had on exhibition a fine or
namental cake. It was very handsome
and showed the designer to be an art
ist. L II Bust had as fine a display of
apples and other fruits an could be seen
anywhere, of which the good brother
was justly proud. A McCall conies
next with a large display cf fruits. He
had on exhibition some very choice
apples. John Wilhelmson, living west
of the city, had a fine showing of hon
ey, in sections, and a mammoth squash
and cabbage. John Aultz had on ex
hibition some excellent Mango pep
pers. E M Storer exhibited a swarm
of bees, of his imported stock. This
was indeed a novelty. J O Chamber-

On last Friday the Red Cloud base
ball club and the Superior nine meas
ured strength on the grounds in this
city. The game was called at two
o'clock and lasted until five. During
the first part of the game our boys run

matched the Superior club held them
level, and for several innings the score
stood even. At the close of the game
our boys tallied one score ahead of the
Superior boys. Altogether the game
