Yestarday John Bentley saw three
little chrildren going along the street
with bare feet, and to cheer up their
little hearts he took them into a store
and purchased each a pair of shoes. It
was a kind act. Red Cloud Chief.
We don't know what manner of man
John Bentley is in other things but
this we do know, that he showed by
that act of kindness that sympathy for
the misfortunes of others, that would
make this world a paradise if more
generally demonstrated. Red Cloud or
any other town ought to feel proud of
such an act by one of her citizens.

We are informed of a sad misfor

journeying by wagon from Stockton,
Kansas to York, this state. Wednes
day night of last week they camped
about two miles northeast of town,
sleeping in their wagon with their in
fant child. In the morning after they
had eaten their breakfast and were pre
paring to start they discovered that
their babe was dead smothered by
being covered to closely. The dis
tracted parents sought the nearest
house, which happened to be that ef
Mrs. Kincaid, where they found sym
pathetic hearts and willing hands to
help them in their distress. Their lit
tle one was buried in the Guide Rock
cemetery, and the following day the
bereaved pair pursued their sad jour
ney, accomoanied by the sympathy of
all who knew of their misfortune.
