The new daily paper at lied Cloud
is still talked of. and if organized and
equipped as proposed, can not fail to
be quite an institution, thoagh it
does seem that there is proportionally
as much capital and ability now in
terested in the newspaper business in
that city as in any other line that can
be mentioned. Times-Winner.
"Hoover-ing around." Col. Hoover,
a can idate for State Senator is in
the city pleading his cause. We are
afraid that the callant Colonel's re-
cord is insufficient to let him into
the senatorial contest. A man who
uses democratic newspapers to an
nounce in can't expect much from re
publican journals, if he's a republi
can. The newspaper men of this city are
no talking of forming a joint stock
company and entering into the bank
ing business, dry goods business, doc
tor business, harness business, real
estate and loan business, live stock
business and lego-school business.
We're going to have fun. you know,
or at least with as much propriety as
the "Big 8" can the newspaper busi
ness. William W- If, of Garfield township
was in the city Mon. and stated to a
Chief reporter that he had lost by
hydrophobia five horses valued at
about $4S0, two hogs value at $20,
and three head of cattle valued at $S0
makins a total loss of S5S0. All of
the above loss comes off of Mr. Wolfe !
except the $80. This only goes to
show that dogs should be done away
The city dads can now see how nec
essary it is to have a complete water
supply, and have it just as .quickly as
possible. Even with 65 feet in the
stand pipe and nothing back of it,
would not be sufficient to cope with
the firey elements long, with a heavy
wind blowing. If the city would dig
a laree resivoir near the creek and
connect the pump with it there would
be no cause for lack of water.

An industrious newspaper man has
collected this about preacher's sons
in politics: "Grover Cleveland is the
son of a Presbyterian clergyman.
Allen G. Thurman is the son of a
Methodist clergyman. Benj. Harri
son is the son-in-law of a Presbyter
ian clergyman. Levi P. 3Iorton is
the son of a Congregational clergy
man. Calvin S. Brice, chairman of
the democratic executive committee,
in charge of the campaign, is the son
of a Presbyterian clergyman. 3Iat
thew Stanley Quay, chairman of the
republican national committee, is also
the son of a Presbyterian clergyman,
which, with the fact that Gen. Har

church himself, ought to get out the

at last awakened to the fact that ac

absolutely necessary. The water will
be filtered and kept as clean as if it

The editor of the Red Cloud Chief
took a horseback trip to Kansas the
other day, and as the sun was slowly
sinking behind the western hills a
solitary horseman might have been
secn starting on the homeward jour-
ney. But, to quote his own language,
"our fast horse gave out and we had
to work our passage home." Thus
it will be seen that dangers and sor
rows stand 'round editors on every
hand. Lincoln Journal.
A farmer, near here, went out the
other day. to get a load of hay and
not haying any pole with which to
j hind his load, took his ax and started
to cut down one of his immense corn
stalks for that purpose. He had it
nearly chopped down when one of the
ears of corn became detached and
fell, crushing him to the earth. Had
it not been for timely assistance he
would have been killed but as it was
he only sustained a few bruises. Ex.
