Preliminary and Very Enthus
This afternoon at 2:30 a meeting in
the interests of a canning factory con
vened at D. B. Spanogle's office. The
subject was thoroughly discussed and
a committee of Kenyon Skeen and Mr.
Boggs was appointed to go to Beatrice
to look into and report the workings of
the factory at that place and report at
a meeting to be held at the Odd Fel
lows ball next Monday afternoon at
four o'clock. No better institution
could be organized for the benefit of
the farmers than a canning factory
and as about $5,000 of the capital stock
has been pledged, we feel safe in say
ing that it will be a go. This move in
sures a boom for our city. Let our
people stand together and our city
will grow rapidly from this on.
A Surprise Party,
Last evening the numerous friends
of Mr. and Mrs. Gardner, who have
resided in our city for the last three
years, gave them a genuine surprise
bv coming in on them to the number
of about fifty. The surprise party
was conceived and gotten up by in
timate friends who were determined
that Mr. and Mrs. Gardner's impres
sion of Red Cloud should be lasting.
At about S o'clock the crowd come
rushing in upon the surprised land
lord and his wife, and after the
cause was explained the crowd pro
ceded to take posession of the Gard
ner House and make the occasion
one of merriment the balance of the
evening. The guests before they
departed presented Mr. G. and wife
with a handsome and costly chair, as
a souvenir of their friendship and
bade them godspeed in their new
home. The following were the don

WAsnisoTON, March US. The Interna
tional Woman's Congress is a remarkable
success, great interest being manifested in
the papers read and the proceedings of the
delegates. In last evening's session Miss
Frances E. Willard. of Chicago, lectured
on "Woman and Temperance." Among
other things she said that "God always has
one more arrow in His quiver," one un
wearied regiment to summon when the
battle crisis comes. History affords no
more salient illustration of this fact than
the world uprising of women, whose or
ganic form and sober second thought is the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union of
America and of all lands. The liquor curse
finds its Nemesis in the home which it bas
so long defied and trampled under foot.
Woman, whatever her faults, has nevei
been tbe slave of alcoholic stimulants, but
comes to man's rescue in his heroic but un
equal fight with his worst enemy. Its
discipline is schooling her mind as mo
course of study could, its pathos is broad
ening out tbe mother heart to take ia all
tbe world; its mighty onset is developing
in her a mighty will; Us supreme exigen
cies have exalted to supreme heights her
faith in God. Tbe setting up of Christ's
heavenly kingdom upon earth is the
passion, of this new crusade. Women
Knew that ne wno spue as never
man spake, and in the record of whose
words there is no hint tat the present ine
quality of man and woman in church and
state, is their best friend. They believe
that when Ho shall reign, not in form, but
in fact; not ecclesiastically, but by His
spirit, in the world, home shall, for the first
time, be the place Christ meant it should
