Few towns or cities in tho west, or
even the east, can boast of as many
flourishing institutions as there are in
the city of Bed Cloud, all of which are
doing a succecsfnl business. This week
we have the pleasure of announcing
to our readers that Messrs. D. B. Span
ogle, CM Brown, C P. Rinker, F. L.
Spanogle, and several other well
known Red Cloud gentlemen, have
completed and incorporated under the
laws of Nebraska an association to be
known as the "Western Implement
Company" with headquarters at Red
Cloud, and an authorized capital of
$.)().00U and a paid up capital ot $25,001'.
The firm propose to handle all cl.ises
of agricultural implements and to
open branch houses in many western
towns wherever the husiuev will war
rant them in so doing. Tkiev already
have biauch house.- at a! Ck. Neb ,
and Oberlin, Kan-., and are doing a
good busines-. The Chief takes pleas
ure in announcing the Jenteprise to it-'
thousands of rentiers and beheyes that
it is an institution that will be the
means of adding another spoke to the
wheel of fame of Bed Cloud, the
metropolis of the Republican Vallev.
Wo h po that prosperity will
attend the corporation in all
its intercourse with the people
it the great stale of Nebrn-kn.
It i such institutions a. thr.-,c that
build up cities and mikes the people
contented and well to do. Our best
wishes are for an unlimited and suc
cessful career to tho Western Imple
The VNtr Comity fiazdte published
at Kingston, New Vork Samuel Freer
fc Sen proprietors, dated Jan. -4th 1S00
is on our tabic by the courtesy of A.W.
Spencer of Kansas. The paper is an
heirloom of the Spencer family and
has been handed down to posterity in
rasonable good condition. The paper
contains concise accounts of the doings
of Congress, the death and burial ot the
immortal Washington, several legal
advertisements, and the extraordinary
notice hat John Tremper has a quan
tity of Schohary peas for sale or ex
change for wheat. Luther Anders, an
nounces in a well written poetical
sketch, that would do justice to our
Nebraska spring poet, that:
I wotild not live to rai votir ja-inn.
For crttllt here l out of f.iihlmi." rtc
In another place Mutys VnnSteenberg
notifies the people not to trust his wife
as he will not pay her bill. John
Schoonmaker announces to the world
in bold letters "That he hni for sale
the one half of a saw mill with a con
venient place and also a good stout
healthy, negro, wench." etc. in fact the
paper is an odd neciiue n of ye olden
times and is filled with many novel
sayings and peculiarities of the ear
lier da of the United States.
"Thus Shm.l it nit Doxr." Tne
mighty political wave is rolling on,
and as each week brings us nearer to
the county convention, the larger the
waves become as the candidates for
various'places "bob up serenely." Since
the hist issue of The Ch:ef we learn
with pleasure that numerous candi
dates have decided to try tbeir chances
with the po'tical bee. The following
gentlemen, we are informed, are can
