Last week a man stepped up to us
and said he would pay us every cent
he owed us if he lived till Saturday
night. Wc presume the man died.
Another man said he would pay us in
a day or so as sure as wc were born.
Qucrry: Did the man lie or were we
never born? Another said he would
settle as sure as shooting. We pre
sume that shooting is very uncertain.
Another man said be hoped to go to
the devil if he did not pay us within
three days. Haven't seen him since;
suppose that he is gone but trust that
he did not hope in vain. Quite a
number aaid they would sec us to
morrow. They must have been strick
en blind, or to-morrow has not come.
One man told us six months ago that
he would pay as soon as he got some
money. The man would not lie, so of
course he has not got a cent since.

Christmas, how dear to the hearts
ef the little ones is the word Christ
mas, and aaseclated with that myster
ious individual Santa Clans, it brings
u ir T0U,K miDds, thc fo8d vantif
ipations of great pleasure that is
nnder nrdinarv circan.tance it l-
thc day of days and one that 'n n
sootier passed than it h again londly
and anxiously waited for by thc
young. Therefore "At Christmas play
and make good cheer, for Christman
comes but once a year." The Chief
would then admonish parents to
make the day a bright spot in thc
memory of each child, make them
happy, if you can not do it but once a
year do it at Christmas tide. Make
them feci that thair young liv.-s have
some pleasant paths, something he
sides the tcdrous school routine, thc
everlasting uyou don't amount to any
thing," e tc. Then thcre'is your wife,
don't forget hei, she has been your
helpmate, her trials have been many.
A token no matter how small will
bring back color in her faded cheek,
and cause her trials to appear lighter,
and while these presents are being
looked for it would not be a bad idea
for the wife to procure some little
soaviner for her husband. He too,
perhaps, through the busy whirl of
life has had his dark spots, his trials
and tribulations and the perplexities
that flesh is naturally heir to. Pro
cure him a present, it may have the
effect of causing him to make firmer
resolutions and makehis life'sjburdcn
easier. Then there is thc fon d lover
who is about to step from the paths
of sinelc blessedness to realms of
wedded bliss. Oh, well, there is not
much use to urge him to buy presents
for it is almost a sure thing that he
will spend his last dollar for his
sweetheart, and well he may for it is
the proper thing to do as Christmas
comes but once a year and that is not
generally in the ice cream season.
However, putting aside all levity The
Chief takes great pleasure in wish -ing
its many friends a merry, merry,
Christmas. One full of hope, fond
anticipations and unlaid pleasures.
On last Friday evening as Judge
Trunkey was wending his way home
ward, his mind engrossed with mat
ters 'Pro bono publco, and judicial
points somewhat intricate, he did not
even think about t!.c fact that on
that very day forty yearsQ ago
he had just arrived on this torrential
sphere. However after arriving home
his horse carefully groined and fed,
the judge bethought himself of the
larder, and straightway hied himself
to his abode, where upon opening the
door he discovered a large number of
friends rustling around the festive
board. His Honor looked dazed cyen
bewildered, and glancing toward his
good wifo for an explanation, she in
formed him that it was his anniver
sary. Thc surprise was complete and
thc friends stayed until a late hour
commemmorating the event. In thc
words of thc poet judge exclaimed
"I'm beat for once."
In another placcin todays paper will
be found thc t-tatement of thc condi
tion of thc First National bank of this
city. There are few banking houses
in thc state that keep apace
with this substantial banking house
It is sound, reliable and deserving,
nnd is receiving thc support of a large
number of our business men in thc
citv, and manv others. The Messrs.
Shireys are old bankers, men of year
of experience, and do banking en a
safe basis. Read thc statement care
fullv it will benefit you. The Chief
can heartily reccommend the first na
tional to the people.

an enterprise that has been fosvered
and worked up by the untiriDg cneryj
of that enterprising citixen, Mr. K.U.
Jones, whose whole thought seems to
be concentrated to thc upbuilding of
Bed Cloud. We need more men in
this city of his stamp, before the
place becomes a large city. Such
enterprises count and are appreciated
by the general public, much more so
than those questionable enterprises
fostered by men who have only their
it.dividuai interests to subserve. Give'

At this time it is only fitting that
TntCnitr should "give honor to
whom boner is due," and in an unso
licited msnn'er, we desire to speak
freely in rcgara to the firm of Hacker
fc Parker, whom we unhesitatingly
prououuee the most energetic search
ers after trad 'in the city of Red
Cloud, or for that matter in southern
Nebraska. About five vears ago Mr.
T. C. Hacker, ific.senior member of
the firm left hik-castern home laying
aside the life of a pencil pusher"
and embarked in the.grocery business
in Red Cloud. His busines rew
apace and became more volumuious
day by day,o he decided on taking in
his sou-iu-law Mr. D. F. Parker, a
thorough and practical grocery dealer
With thc addition of bis name to the
firm, the business still kept increas
ing until today the firm has a busi
ness uncqualcd by none in southern
Nebraska. They carry fir.c imported
goods in thc fruit line, and are sole
agents for Curtice Bros, celebrated
canned goods kept on hand
thc year round. Fresh vegetables
such as lettuce, radishes, celery,
grapes, pears, apple etc. Also keep
choice candies, nuts, cigars, and thc
bet characters of groceries to be had
in any store west of Omaha. In fact
their aim is to keep a class or goods
that can only be Juiuid in larger
cities. Keeping the f.nost goods in
thc market and dealing honerably has
made this firm the topmost institution
of its class in this section. TilE
Chief bespeaks for them a prosper
ous f tture.
