and everybody is now anxious to get
away with their goods first. Many will
go away heavy ol heart, light of purse,
and without a medal as a means of
comfort. There has been a sreat strug
gle for the front rank, and the task of
making the awards has been an ardu
ous and trying duty for the jndges. All
could not receive a medal of first-class,
'however mentorions their handiwork
might be; there must be some superior
to others, and the ones who have come
from the strnggle second best must ac
cept the situation with the best grace
possible. Competition was open to the
world, and they who have been pro
claimed as victors are justly entitled to
the honors and benefits to be derived
In looking over the official list of
awards I have noticed that Chicago
merchants and manufacturers have
been very successful. A most notable
instance is that of
SELZ, SCHWAB & CO.
manufacturers of boots and shoes.
Those who have visited the expofition
and have carefully examined their re
markable exhibit made, could not but
be deeply impressed with the idea of
the wonderful strides of skill and im
provement made in a few years in this
commodity; and that all this should be
credited to the west and a western
firm seems still more remarkable from
the fact that to the east alone this
country has, for so many years, looked
for every thing in improvement and
excellence of manufacture of boots and
ehoes. Probably in no class Jof exhib
its 'entered in competition has there
been such spirited rivalry as in this
class, or one tnat carried greater im
portance in the result. Thefrepresent
ative interests of America, and of For
eign manufacture were side by side in
the race. Sclz, Schwab & Co., as will
be remembered, placed a most magnif
icent glass case with elaborate frame
'containg tneir make of goods, which,
by the way, were not gotten up merely
for the occasion, "premium" boots and
aboes, etc., but goods taken right from
their stock and cases as sold and ship
ped every day to jobbers and dealers.
This done tne case was left for the in
spection of all. There was no attendant
no need for one. At tne proper umo
expert judges pronounced their v erdict
which is a
SWEEPING WESTERN VICTORY
for them; a medal of first-class cold
medal for collective display. The
same for best material and make, in
fact "the whole business" it was a com
I have dwelt at lengh upon this
exfiit and the award, because of the
veilgnificant fact connected there
with, that the west is rapidly superced
ing tho manufacturers of the east
There is no better illustration of this
than wasjillustrated at this world's fair
bv the boot and shoo interest. I can,
however, readily account for it. The
facilities for munufacture are as great
in the west, why not? As a tannery
market Chicago leads the world. The
benefits to be derived from this fad
are great. The country tributary to
Chicago ib enormous in its expanse,
and the wants of its people something
beyond calculation. All bouor to
whom honor is due; or, as some of my
political friends have put it "to the
victors belong the spoils." These cele
brated boots and shoes are for sale at
, the square dealing Golden Eagle cloth
ing store, Red Cloud.
A large number of our citizens were
out to see the trial of the Esterly Bind
er last Saturday. It was the uuani
imoas verdict of all, that for lightness
of draught, ease of management and
perfect work the Esterly was ahead.
To prove that there was no side draft
the driver removed the neck yoke
from the tongue and drove four rounds
in that manner turning at the corners
by means of the stay chain device,
peculiar ttf the Esterly. It teems that
this machine is bound to win from its
own merits. L D Mouser is at proud
as a hen with her first brood, over the
success of his machine.
Notice to Breakers.
I have 200 acres of traootn land
which I will break within the next 30

Ella Juke Meade, the popular end
versatile elocutionist of Cedar Rap. us.
Ia.. held forth in the Methodist church
last Tuesday evening, before a full
and appreciative house, which she con
stantly kept in an uproarious state of
laughter during the rendition of many
comic and sentimental pieces which
shs personated. "The Herdsman's
Horn Welcoming Day," "The Capture
of Joan of Ars," "The Monnan Wife,"
'Violin sketches," etc.. were rendered
in a delightful manner and with great
credit to herself. During the evening
the choir, composed of our best musi
cal talent, gave some excellent music,
and Mrs Dodd sang -'Kethaleen Ma
vourneen" after her best manner. Both
choir and Mrs. Dodd were loudly ap
plauded. It was certainly a very pleas
ant entertainment and highly appreci
ated bv all present. She will return to
Red Cloud at no late data.
Ox last Friday night our friend G N
McDaniels, one of our village black
smiths, arrived at the ripe old age of
51 years, although yet in the'vicor of
life. To commemorate! the 'event
fittingly his good wife extended an in
vitation to his many friends to meet
with them at that time at their resi
dence in South Red Cloud. At an
early hour a large number of guests
came in and enjoyed the hospitalities
extended. After music and general
rejoicing for several hours a magnifi
cent supper was served and dispatched
with a vigor that plainly marked its
excellence. It was certainly one of the
most pleasant events that our reporter
has had the pleasure of being in at
tendance upon. The good brother
was the reapient of many handsome
presents, the Chief extends its con
gratulations and wishes him many re
turns of the happy occasion.
The Chief has not the time nor dis
position to bandy words with our emi
nent democratic contemporary on the
present status ef the bridge bond ques
tion. That iNSue is one of the by
gones. What The Chief wants is a
bridge or bridges of a substantial na
ture, not only in Red Cloud, but else
where in the county, and the moment
ous question at present i "what is the
best means of procuring them ?" Bab
bling over the "lost cause" docs not
build bridges. It takes good sense,
money and unison of action. Lt our
e. d. c cease giving us the ''Ohio idee"
and present some tangible plan of ac
tion if it has any. The prattle ss to
the non-action of The Chief is evi
dently a md for notoriety oa the
part of the aside, d.c. The people of
this county were thoroughly posted on
the bridge question long before the
only "norgan" in the vally was born.
Arrangements have been completed
for a grand celebration of the glorious

the celebration will be one of the best
