The Red Choud Chief
A FRIDAY. MAY 7 18SG
A Musical Treat. The Ethel Howe
concert at the opera house Wednesday
evening, drew a crowded house. Miss
Howe is decidedly the finest vocalist
that has ever appeared in Ked Cloud.
Her voice is a marvel of sweelneR3,
under perfect control, possessed of a
coropasa leldom equalled, and whose
Clear intonations comhi no to produce
the moat charmi.ig melody. We
understand that the lady is to appear
as leading soprano in the Oratorm of
the Messiah at Lincoln in the near
future- The music loving people of
that city may confidently expect a
rare treat. The evening's entertain,
ment was interspersed with song-j and
choruses by the male quartet, Messrs
Picking, Plumb, Albright, and Aik
man; mixed quartet, Messrs. Albright,
and Aikman, and Misses Aikman and
Emigh; 6ong, Mrs. Chase; piano solo,
Mrs. Wood; duct, Misses Richardson
and Becker, all rendered in a- charm
ingly creditable manner. And right
here, while we have the subject matter
in hand, we wish to remark that Red
Cloud has a musical array of home
talent that will compare favorably
with any of its sister cities in the wild
west. Our citizens are largely indebted
to the untiring energy and indefuligu
nble efforts of Rev. C, L. Fulforth,
rector of the Episcopal church, for the
pleasant entertainment given. We
hope the reverend gentleman will not
weary in well doing, but furnish us
with another one, equally as good, in
the near future.
Ik there is one thing above anothei
that is decidedly to the interest of Red
Cloud, it is the fact that the hills and
dales called roads, lending to this city
should be made passable, so the farm
ers could be able to get to this city with
a load. A few hundred dollars would
do the work well and it is the opinion
of The Chief that the repairing of thu
roads is one of the most needy pro
jects and of greater interest to Red
Cloud than mo.it anything else except
railroads. It is an actual fact that the
fencing of farms over the county has
thrown the roads on to section lines in
many places, milking them in many
places a barrier to the trading public
who wish to visit and trade in Red
Cloud. We hope the matter will be
looked after. Good bridges and good
roads are very desirable adjuncts to
the city's trade. Pcint o any road
lvai'iug 2 Red Cloud and we will show
ycu ono that should be made more
nuitahlc to travel over. And the mer
chants of Red Cloud aro more inter
ested in this caii pc than anyone else
and ought to movo in the matter
promptly, we think.
Wm. Gates, Judge McKeighan, and
eight other gentlemen have purchased
a fine Clydesdale stallion, costing
$2000, recently imported to this coun
try by an importer of fine draft horses,
at Superior. The animal is a fine one,
and probably the finest stallion ever
brought to this section of country.
The Chief points with pride to the
fact that the gentlemen have been
ontsrprising enough to make the pur
chase, as it shows that the fanners
generally haye awakoned to the fact
hat the improvement of horseflesh is a
consumatiou devoutly to be wished
Fine horses, cattle, etc. gives our
county a good reputation and shows
that our formers and tock men are
progressive, wideawake people. The
probabilities are that in the future thn
company will branch out into import
ing stock direct
At tho next cit council meeting an
ordinance will be acted upon fixing
the salaries of the city officers and
couucil. The C:ief behoves that the
councilmen and other officers of the
city should be paid reasonably for
their services, but docs no', believe
they should be made too high at pres
ent. The tax payers cannot aflord too
many city heirs. However, we shall
trust to the judgment of tho city of
ficers in fixing'thesame, believing that
they will not go beyond what it is ac
tually worth and a a fair compensation
The councilmen should have at least
$3 per night, and the mayor and clerk
from one hundred to one hundred and
Gfty dollars eachv Public servants
should be paid reasonably for their
services, but not in excess.
W. and C Schenck, of Cowles, have
two fine stallions which it would be
well for all breeders of fine stock to
investigate. The animals have ex
cellent pedigrees, and arc just the kind
of horses that farmers should breed to
if they desire to improve their stock.
We call the attention of farmers and
others to the advertisement of Frank
Jones in another column. He has two
fine thoroughbred horses and a good
Jack that he will keep in Red Cloud
this season. The horses haye good.

Since then we have made a trip to the
western line of the state ano eastern
Wyoming to select a homestead on
the public lands. We purchased a
land ticket at Kearney to Kimball
and return for $12.S0, but extruded
our journey to Pine Bluffs in Wyom
ing over the U. P. road. The country
seemed to be fully settled as far west
as Colorado Junction. West of that
point thero is plenty of government
land. The railway follows the Platte
bottoms to North Platte, where it
leaves tlu river and follows the divide
between the North and South Platte.
From that point it is high rolling
prairie to Cheyenne. The soil is a
gravelly loam, very easy of cultivation
The country has been used as a cattle
range, and but little farming has been
done, but enough has been done to
demonstrate the fact that the soil is
fertile and productive. The Bav State
Cattle Co. purchased a large tract of
rail u ay land in Cneycnne county and
have been using it for a cattle ranchc,
but the rapid settlement of the gov
ern mdnt lands has rendered a change
necessary. They have built a land
office at Kimball and are now bringing
their lands into market, and will re
move their cattle to other parts. The
intiux oi emigrants is enormous the
rush has been to "Pumpkin-seed
Valley, ' about SO miles north of Kim
ball. We did not have time to visit
the Valley vs we found clainn near
Kimball. All the settlers we saw
moving out wre enthusiastic over
tneir settlement. Over 100 families
were located here in one day. The
climate was much milder there the
pist whiter ihau hers. Cittle lived all
winter on the range without hay, and
looked quite as.wcll as here.
