Tuesday morning as the west hound
express started out from the depot, hot
before it had gaiued much speed, a
lady with a child in her arms, who had
been in one of the coaches saying her
adieus to a departing friend, rushed to
the doer and jumped hurriedly from
the car step to the platform. It was
not much of a jump, nut the lady had
made no calculation for the motion of
the train, and not alighting fairly on
her feet fell to the ground and rolled
toward the track: with the child still
in her arms. Fortunately Agent Pow
ell and the conductor of the train were
standing near, and rasdr a ftanticgrab
for the lady, and succeeded in pulling
her from under the wheels just in
time to save her from a horrible d?ath
Bystanders who reported the adven
ture to the Signal say that the woman
and the child must both have perished
but for the promptness and activity of
the agent and conductor. Guide Hock
Sleeper's cat riuge works turned out
this week some very finework, iu the
shape of an elegant coach for Clinc &

how a person could find a better class
of work than i done at Sleeper's,

workmen and fully know their busi
ness Their work far cxcells eastern
work and is being sold do cheap that
all can buy if they so desire Jt wilj
pay our people to see Sleepers before
sending east for buggies. It will pay
to patronize home for the reason that
you can get better work at just about
the same prices, and know just what
you are getting. Give them a call. The
institution is certainly the equal of
many .so called "big concerns" in the
east, as The Chief can fully testify.
One day this week, through the
courtesy of Mr. C. C Johnson, a Chief
reporter.took short but pleasant trip

Another Brick. The oddfellow
of Red Cloud arc maturing plans
whereby they will soon ercet a hand
some brick hall on their lot just north
of the rink 25x100 feet two stories
high. Mr.3IcDonald the architect is
now at work on the plans and specifi
cations and we feel certain that the
the new hall will be a fine specimen
of architecture and worthy of a place
iu our growing city. The Oddfellows
lodge is iu a very prosperous condition
and The Chief is glad to learn that
they have the enterprise Jk erect
a new hall fitted up for the great work
that they are doing daily.
i . e e .
The probabilities arc that the Moon
buildings will still go up, notwith
standing the failure of the contractor
to come up to the contract We
learn that other" contractors arc readv
to do the work. It is too had to let
the buildings go by default now when
they are in demands We have been
unable to learn just the exact reason
for the non-fulfillment of the original
contract. Wc hope the trouble will
be adjusted and the building boon go
on as anticipated. We hope Mr.
Yeiser, who has keen formost in get
tiug the buildings planned will be
also able to get them built this sea
son after all.
