A Bully Time. On last Sunday F N Richardson and the Rasser Bros had considerable fun in trying to lariat a ferocious bull which they wanted to take out of the corral, and had it not been for the close proximity of the fence the case would have been a seri ous one for Friz. Friz was making a bee line for the fence to get out of the way of the beast, but the infuriated an imal could run faster than Friz, and overtook him, but by presence of mind Mr Richardson dropped down and thereby threw the bull, and before it could gain its equilibrium Friz was safely housed on t'other side of the fence. teea Entker.

EatcrpriMsc MrrrkaBU The fact that the enterprising nrm of Mohart & Fulton, hardware dealers, C. Weiner Clothing merchant, and B. F. Mizer grocer and nueensware dealer have decided to build new brick store rooms 100 feet deep and 25 feet wide, makes The Chief feel jubilant from the lact that such evidences of pros perity leads us to believe that ina few fthort months the west side of the busi ness portion of Webster street, from 3rd Avenue to 5th Avenue will be of solid brick buildings. The above gentleman are paving the way, and it is onlv a nuestion of time when oth- ...,r.i...t ,..t tr.i-A t,. v, ot .a . I' lliril.llillll UlLrTt. Ull Ltll. II'IL.1 UIIU build suitable store room- to keep nace with the irrowin" metropolis of the Republican valley. Messrs. Mor hart &. Fulton and B F Mizer will build a two Eton block each, the store room as designated in last weeks Chief and in addition will make the upstairs into an opera house which is really needed iu Red Cloud. Mr. Wiener's building will be two stories high the first and second stories adapted exclusively to the de mands of his trade. The north block will be built after the design of the Red Cloud National bank block when ever built. This will have the effect of making a handsome number of store rooms. Now who willj le the next one to put up a brick building. Verily, Red Cloud is booming, there having been something like twenty dwellings built so far since January 1st 18S5, and contracts for several more have been let. Keep up the good work and make the city of our adoption grow and expand like the green bay tree. Tba Bridge U.uetioa. Another meeting of our business men was held in Judge Yeiser's office on Saturday nifht, to again discuss the bridge question, lrom a logical business standpoint, a civil engineer who has been making surveys and es timates, ct the different points along the Republican needing bridges, pre sented some very interesting facts and figures relative to the modus operandi cu-l etc. of bridge building. It is a la mentable tact that Welnter county if continually losing a large amount of trade that rightfully belongs to it, by reason of defective bridges and almost impassable roads, these serious draw backs to the malerial prosperity ol the countv are not confined to the vallev ml alone but is rclt severely at the various trade centers throughout the entire county It is estimated that about forty or forty five thousand dollars will prop erly bridge the Republican with reli ible and permanent bridges and some ten or hfteen thousand to bridge the streams and draws, elsewhere in the county and to improve the public roads so that the farmers may be able to leach the market with a full load of products at any and all times, the may so desire. The board of county commissioners meetSaturday and will consider the advisibihty of calling a special election of the people, to vote for or against the issu ing of county bonds, to the amount of $55,000 to be used in improving the highways and bridges of Webster county as above stated. We believe the project a just one and trust that no motives of parsimonious economy may be allowed to retard these much needed and lasting im provements. A mi'sical soiree, will be given at the Baptist church next Thursday, May 7th, by some of the best tallent in the city. TROGIUMME. Overture, Miss Becker, Messrs. Becker and Welch.

On Monday evening Charlie Kaley, Sam Garbcr and Will Brakefield "a noble trio of Red Cloud's energetic young men severed the social ties that bound them to this latter day Eden, bade farewell to home and "mother and with the regulation artillery in a leather girdle about their loinsstirted for the land ot the Montezutnas, .Their present destination is Raton, New Mexico where they expect to carve Red skin andjsboot the wild cactus overjthe plains, as all truly courageous cowboys have done, who have eniored that land before them. The Chief drops the silent tear of regret over their depart ure, trusts that "Old Prob." who tem pers the wind to suit the convenience of the weather bureau, will also care for the little Teudcr-footsM and fondly hopes to see them return from their weary pilgrimage in due season, to the city of their first love and again re sume their places in our midst as solid influential citizans. A New Lumber Yaru. W lnm 'Tthis week that Rev Mr Hawlev former- erly of Red Cloud and our old friend B. T. Reed have associated themselves together and will start a lumber yard and feed store on the lots jut between the Commercial house and A. S Marsh's residence and in front of W. D. Forrester's residence. These gen tlemen are well known to the citizens of Red Cloud and Webster and adja cent counties, and we have no doubt but what they will be well re paid for the money they propose to invest in the lumber enterprise in our city. The Chief welcomes these men into the active business circles and wishes them prosperity and success in every particular. Tni will make Red Cloud quite a lumber headquarters, there being now with Reed fc Hawlev four establishments. The new firm will put up a store room 20 by 26 for the flourmnd feed department. Died.

Jt l a rougn road to Jerico, bu t sooner or later it must be traveled by all, and at such times when aflliction and trouble comes 'tis well to have a friend, to succor you, for "A friend in need is a frifeiid" in deed," and especially is this true m re iard to Odd-fellowship. They who ;now can speak. It is not surprising then that the organization flourishes, and that all over the broad land the brethren come together to celebrate and renew their vows of friendship. On Monday morning the various lodges from over the Valley came in on the early trams and were met by a delegation of Red Cloud lodge and marched up town, headed by the Red Cloud cornet band. The lirt lodgo to make it appearance was from Blue Hill which was accompanied by their cornet band, and numbered thirty-nine or forty members. I he next ueiegauous cam 2 111 irom me west headed by the Franklin cornet band, and later on in the day halem Lodge to tae number of fifteen or.twen ty came over in wagons and the festiv ities were then commenced, and wer' occasionally enlivened by the "sweet strains of music" floating upon the air from the various cornet bands that were in the city. In fact it was 1 grand holiday, not only for Odd Fel lows but was joined in by mot of our citizens and quite a number from the outlying precinct At 12:30 p. m in accordance with the program the Red Cloud Lodge met at their hall to the number of about fifty and at one o'clock marched to the rink, headed by the Red Cloud band, where they were joined by the visiting brethren and the grand march commenced. At 1:30 p. m. the order was given by Grand Marshal Bayha for the column to move, which they did in the follow ing marner: From the rink the col umn marched north to 7th Avenue thence west to Cedar ct., again north to 9th Avenue and west to Seward St., and south to 2nd Avenue and east on 2nd Avenue to Webster st, and thence north to the rink. at the rink. The following program was fully car ried out by the lodges, and was of a very interesting nature. About two o'clock A. J. Means, acting Noble Grand, called the meeting to order, and prayer .vas offered by the Rev. Geo. W. Hummell, after which the singing 01 the opening one iy ah Odd-fellows took place. A J Kenney was then introduced and on lehalf Of the Red Cloud Lodge delivered an able and appreciative address of welcome to the visiting brethren ladles, which was heaitilv and their ' applauded ' from time to time as the speaker pro gressed. After singing. E. A. Fletcher, of Franklin, in a very few well cho-eu remarks 1 es ponded on behalf of the visiting members. Mr. Fletcher is an enthusiastic brother and his address was most highly appreciated by the brethren and attentively listened to. after which the choir, composed of J F ' Bayha, Prof. Ebangh, Thomas Poyner, ! and Miss Fva Bavha. with Mrs J I Bayha as organist, gave the audience "Annie Laura-" After which the an niversary exercises commenced. The proclamations from the Grand Sire having been read by the secretary of Blue Hill lodge, the Noble Grand and Vice Grand recited the principal ob object of, and the causes which lead to the foundation of the order. After prayer and singing the Rev. E. A Cor net? grand chaplain of the grand lodge of Nebraska, was introduced, and for the space of thirty minutes kept the audience in a pleasant humor by one of the most able addresses that it has been our pleasure to listen to for some time. The good brother is a thorough Odd-fellow, and was loudly applauded all thiough his discourse. We should liked to have given his speech in full, J but have not the space to spire, .itcr closing the anniversary uddre5 a vote of thanks was tendered to Bros.

After prayer the exercises closec for the af ternoon, and in the evening a grand ball was given at the rink which was largely attended, and participated in until the small hours appeared, when the "uinxy waltzing" ceased and the merry makers returned to their vari ous hoirfs vowing that it was one of the nuf .njoyable events in the his tory of Odd-fellowship in the Valley. Too much praise can not be bestowed upon the committee on arrangements for their untiring efforts to make the exercises pleasant and profitable to all.

All along the way, and as far a- the eve could see, there could be observed well improved farm, good frame hou-e, barn-, fine grove., and in lact one would think tiiat ehtcr county had been settled nearer fifty years than fifteen. Tne farmers are thrifty and enterprising. From the McQuilkin farm north the land grow more level a you leave the river and advance to the wetand north, and the traveler see- helore him one 'vaRt, stretch of fine farming country d thickly with farm hou-, bams, dotted etc. The farmers on the divide apparently turn their attention more to direct farming than stock raUin, as nearly every farm is planted to small cereals. About two o'clock we arrived in Wells, and after dining at the Hotel dc Aultz, our menu itouic ana ihe l-hief ram bled around the village for the purpose of taking in the sights. Tne totx or wells is situated in a little valley, and is skirted on the north, west and eat by quite a growth of timber that crows along the banks of theiittle Blue. The location of the village could not have been better selected if the originators had med the county over.
