RED CLOUD, WEBSTEK COUNTY,
Her Future Froepeota To Become
PriDCipei City In Ne-
For several years past it has been
duly observed by thinking people,
people who are farseeing aad versed
upon sach things, that Red Cloud
was destined to become a thriving
and populous city at no distant day.
Her position and surroundings are
such that she cannot help but grow
rapidly if her natural advantages
are comprehended. She has an un
limited water power in the famous
Pepnblican Hive, . enough to propel
hundreds of manufacturing establish
iueBts and an adjacent territory that
will be populous enough m a few years
to support any and all such institu
tions that may or wish to locate with
in her borders. Tbe city is located
four miles from the Kansas line and
can, and does control a good portion
of the trade in Smith and Jewell
counties, the present population of
both counties can be-safely be put
down at 35,000 souls, besides our
own county has a population of 15,
000 inhabitants. Think of it strang
er and when you are hanting a place
to locate remember that Bed Cloud
is the best location in the west. No
other town .of any cote is near as,
hence the truthfulness of our pre
dictions. Bed Cloud itself is a beau
tiful cityi of nearly 4,000 touls, na
turally drained, is lighted with elec
tric lights, has a fine system of water
works, a street railway under con
struction, Sne school houses ?nd
churches, numerous brick business
houses &c The famous B. & M.
railway, runs through the city and be
fore the roses bloom again the Mis
ouri Pacifc will be running trains
into the city, and also the Union Pa
cific. A caaaiBg( factory will be lo
cated here ia a few weeks and many
other enterprises arc on the tapis.
The picture of Red Cloud is not ovct
drawB, and if you are not located
don't do so uatil jou -visit this city.
JfovrmeMtM Of The .!floHrl PaclHr.
Last Thursday a committee from
this town, consisting of I. W. Crary,
R. S. Proudfit, T-1). Doudna, C.'t'.
Bradford and T. Auld, and commit
tees from Red Cloud and Bostwick,
had a conference with Col. Everest,
at Superior., the last nataed gentle
man representing the Pacific railroad
company. Briefly stated, the com
pany will require from this precinct
bonds to the extent of $20,000, right
of way, through the precinct, and de
pot grounds in town. Red Cloud we
understand is ready, willing and anx
ious to give the right of way from
the west line of t his precinct to sad
through Red Cloud, depot grounds in
the city, and 52,S00. A railroad
meeting will be held in the iiBk bail
ding tonight." which it is hoped every
citizen of this precinct will find time
to attend. The proposed road, whea
completed, will form a part of the
great Missouri Pacific system, and'a
worthy competitor of the B. & M.
The benefit this coaatry would de
rive from it cannot be overestimated.

If Hastings gets the B. as M. cur
shops, it will add 2,500 to its popula
tion in all fiom 500 to 1,000 more

$350,000 to $500,000. Hastiagsla

The Bntrrtalaaaeitt at the Opera
Heaae a CSraad ftaeeeM.
On last Saturday evening as an
nounced the entertainment at the
Opera House for the benefit of the
indigent poor of this city took place
with a large and appreciative audience
present. It was probably the largest
crowd that was ever present at any
like entertainment in this city. The
voung folks who took part in the
comedy were in training for about two
weeks, under the management of Mr.
W. F. O'Brien and Mrs. Sill, and to
say tnat they merit great praise in
tbe matter would be putting it in a
light form . Every thing seemed to
be perfect, and the various parts taken
by the young ladies were rendered
with that case and perfection that
only characterises the most perfect
training at the hands of the instruct
ors and the adaptation of each part
best 'suited to the individual who
would be most apt to go through
with it without failure. For instance
WILLI A GATHER
took the part of -'The Merchant" and
carried it throagh with such grace
and ease that she called forth the ad-
miration of the entire audience. It
was a difficult part and well rendered.
Chimpanzo" a prince transformed
into a beast, was an excellent char
acter, and as she appeared upon the
stage representing a bear, it was the
signal for a general uproar of applause
If she had been "old bruin" himself
she could not have acted her part
as "Goblin Page" performed her part
of "Attendant on Beast" with per
fect composure and good judgment.
MINNIE MCAVOV AND TRIX MIZER
as fint and second daughters of
Merchant, rendered their several
parts to the utter satisfaction of the
audience, who applauded them fre
quently. MAROARET MINER
as third and favorite daughter of
Merchant, played her part splendidly
and without fault and come in for tbe
share of applause.
as ''Little Fairy acted her part
charmingly, and looked a veritable
fairy from fairy land as she tripped
lightly to sweet strains of the piano
in the mazy waltz.
as "The Fairy Aunt of Chimpanzo"
rendered her part without a fault, and
fe?n:el "Monarch of her Fairy
Garden," as at her will princes were
turned into beasts and vice versa.
In fact every one of the young
ladies did their several parts so
well that it would have challenged
: the most careful ciitic to observe a
- m . a
single tauit in any ot tnem during
the rendition, of the drama and es
pecially was the dancing one of the
most noticeable and pleasing features.
The farce "In Want of a Servant'
was produced by the same characters
with the exception that little Irene
Miner took the place of Nellie West.
It was rendered in keeping with the
During the entertainment the or-!
chestra rendered delightful vocal aad
iaetruraental music. Indeed the
whole affair was a great success in
every way. The faad raised will be
weed ia relieviag the waats of our
city poor. Great credit shaald be
givea to Mr. O'Briea, Mrs. Sill and
leers for their maeeasing efforts to
alike the eatertaiameai z graad
