Xext Saturday will be the Fourth of
July, a day dear to the hearts of the
American people. One hundred and
nine years ngo the little band of liber
ty lovinc eouls, whose autographs ap
pear in connection with every well
regulated Declaration of Indepeudance
little dreamed of the mighty eicnta
that were to follow ns a result of their
act on that sultry July morning; Lit
tle they knew of Red Cloud and its en
virons and had never even heard of
Blue Hill, Guide Rock, Cowles, Wells,
Jackson's grove, or Walnut Creek, yet
after the lapse of over a century
fraught with the grandest achieve
ments in the history of the world; the
people of these thriving places will as
semble at their respective places to
again reiterate the sentiment of that
noble patriotic band and render due
homage to their memory in true
spread eagle style. Red Cloud will not
celebrate on an extensive scale, pre
fering to leave the field open to it
neighl-oring towns. Still & many of
our citizens cannot conveniently leave
town and are desirous ot having a little
fun at home, arrangements have been
made lor their accommodation. A
meeting will be held at Jackson's grove
in the south ward. A programme has
been arranged for the occasion con
sisting of glass ball hhooting, dancing,
rope walking, basket picnic and vari
oub otner snorts such as climbing the
greased pole, catching the greased pig,
sham battle, sack racing, etc. A num
ber of interesting features are on the
tapis up town. Xumerons banquets
will be spread and toasts drank and re
sponded to. The citizens remaining
at home are requested to be on the
streets clothed in their Sunday gar
ments and "whoopcr up" all day.
Those decirous of tripping the light
fantastic toe will have an excellent op
portunity to d so at the commodious
rink. A good orchestra has been se
cured, and genteel lloor managers will
be in attendance. The rink will be
open for dancing both afternoon and
evening. Wallace Ball has been in
vited to read the declaration of inde
pendence at!early candle liiht on the
corner of Scipio and Chestnut streets.
Prof. John Foster will act as marshal
of the day. The procession will start
as soon as John is ready. A grand
display of fire works may take place in
the evening. The public buildings and
business houses will he appropriately
decorated. Let all who cannot join in
the festivities at other places come to

A Happy SiirjirNc
On Tuesday evening the lady friends
of Mrs S It McBride entortained her
Iadybhip with a surprise birthday tea
party, it being the anniversary of her
birthday. The ladies assembled at the
house about four o'clock taking with
them a goodly supply of edible iind
tea. during the temporary absence of
Mrs McBride. Upon her return she
was completely surprised to find her
home in the full possession ,of her
many Mends, and was entirely unable
to comprehend the situation. Explan
ations followed and everything was
lovelv. Ladies alwavs do have a lovely
time, especially when they get out to a
tea party all by themselves. Grandma
Micks engineered the affiir ami prov

secret when they set out for it. M rs

It seem? "to a fellow up a tree," as
the saying goes, that Red Cloud should
be protected against fire in some man
ner. Several propositions have been
advanced at dificn nt.timcs, but at no
time in the past has .there been any
decisive action taken. The lest plan
now mentioned is td drill for an artes
ian well. This seems to be a sensible
idea, and one that could be utilised at
a small expense comparatively. A
larce reservoir could be built, and with
sufficient water mains and convenient
ly located hydrants, it would be an
easy matter to stDp a tire on short no
tice. This plan would be it all the fire
engines that could be used in Red
Cloud. Tun Chief hopes that a peti
tion will be circulated at once, by
some one of our business men for sign
ers asking the trustees to make some
effort to protect the interests of Red
Cloud against tire. This is a too im
portant mauer to be idly passed by,
and receive no attention.
Ax Experiment. Our friend, E.
Anderson, one of Webster county'
industrious farmers, has been experi
menting on the difference between
wild and tame grasd when fed to cows.
He had kept a cow on wild grass one
week and milked her very carefully.
a consequence received 36 Bs
of milk. The next week he fed her on
tame grass and again milked her,
weighing the milk as before, and a a
result at the end of the second week ne
had received 42 pounds, a gain of six
pounds in favor of the tame grass.
Thus it will be seen that It will pay to
give more attention to the raising of
tame gras. Any of the interesting
points to the farmers will be gladly
published in Ttis Chief when furnish
ed. We shall be glad to throw light
upon any experiment that will benefit
