arc that the bank will be losers.
The report that Armour's man was
in Red Cloud trying to scare oar lo
cal meat dealers into buying fresh
meat of that great monopolist, seems
to have been purely imaginary on the
part of -wind mill organ.' No such
proposition was made to our local
dealers, we nave been informed. He
was here for the purpose of selling
cured meats, and that only.
The indications arc that there will
be music in the air before long to
which the Hon. W. A. McKeighaa
ex-county judge will be a party,

be due Don Dwyer, who was a few
years ago adjudged Insane, but since
pronounced sane and released, is
forth coming. Don proposes to fur
nish the music, but wants the county
to pay the fiddlers.
On the inside of today's CHIEF will
be found an interesting serial story
entitled the ''Lone Hollow, or Peril

also publishing Talmadge's sermons

full text of the Oklahoma bill as oas-
scd by the lower house of compress,
will be found on the inside of this
week's paper. The bill will probably
become a law.
G. R. Cbancy delivered his lectuie
ou the "Evidences of a future Exis

night, before a large and appreciative
audience. The paper was one of the
most logical productions we have ever
listeued to on the subject of religion.
It was in contradistinction to tho ab
surd idea of evolution, and from many
well taken points proved conclusively
that the bible theory was the true
one in regard to the creation of man,
and that there was one great law
giver whose handiwork in the man
agement of creation was an undis
puted fact. Those who failed to hear
the lecture missed an able document
in support' cf the gospel, besides a
literary effort not often produced.
It was good.

The following opinion was rendered
the other day by F. A. Sweezy, judge
of the county court of Webster county
in the case of Bank of Dorchester vs
Talbot and Talbot.
OPINION OF TIIK COURT.
As to the defence of usury there
seems to be no ground for doubting
that the Bank ot Cowlcs and L. C.
Gilbert are and have been daring this
whole transaction the agents of plain
tiff and the loan in question was made
for plaintiff, and of its money and it
had full knowledge at all times of the
usury in said note and I And said
usurous interest so paid to have been
$102 and that it wa paid in cash and
must be deducted from the note of
$500 leaving a balance due plaintiff of
$393, and as to tho question of the
liability of defendant, Ellen G. Talbot
on said note it appears from the evi
dence that she is and was at the time
the note was signed the wife of de
fendant, A. M. Talbot, and signed
said note simply at his request and
with no intention, as she testifies, of
charging her separate estate, and it
appears that she was not in business
for herself and was simply engaged in
the household duties of the family of
defendant, A. M. Talbot, her husband.
That the money received on said
notes was used by defendant, A. M.
Talbot, in his own business and de
fendant Ellen Talbot had no knowl
edge of the use made of said proceeds
of said notes.
The evidence does show that de
fendant A. M. Talbot t secure the
credit or loan, represented to the
agent of plaintiff that his wife E. G.
Talbot, owned real estate in her own
right and that she would sign said,
note, and the plaintiff did make said
loan believing that said Ellen Talbot
was good as a surety on said note.
There is no evidence to show that
plaintiff or its agents had any conver
sation or contract with Ellen Talbot
tu specially charge her separate es
tate, nor does the evideace show that
defendant, A. M. Talbot ever repre
sented to plaintiff that she, . G.
Talbot, had or would agree to charge
her separate estate, but simply that
''hit wife would sign the note, and
that she had property and was good,"
which appears to have been true. It
is also evident that at the time the
notes were given both plaintiffs and
defendants believed that in law a
married woman was as good surety on
a note as any man, but this cannot ef
fect tho finding in this case, as the
law must govern, and the court finds
that this question has been several
times settled by the supreme court of
our state. In the 5th. bth, 19th and
several subsequent volumes of our
reports we find the rmle laid down, bat
the case ia 10th Nebraska, is identical
with this one so we will only refer
to it. There the note set out in full
was in words like the note in suit and
the court found that the wife signed
the note as surety, and say in their
opinion as follows: "As it does not
appear in the record that the contract
of suretyship was made by the wife
upon the faith and credit of her sep
arate estate or with reference to the
same, she is not liable asd as to her
saitwas properly disaustad. There
fore this eonrt finds that the defend
ant Ellen G. Talbot is not liable on
said note and as to her this cause is

literally crowded and freely encored
the participants during the rendition
of the various parts. Among those
who ""ere especially applauded were:
A. II. Jester in his Chinese character
"Me be like Mtrllican man." Mr.
Jester is a commedian of no Email
character. The duet "Life's Dream
is o'er," by Mrs. A. II. Jester, aad A.
J. Welch was simply grand and
brought forth the auplaudits of the
audience. Mrs. Jester in rendering
"Only a message from Home" showed
her fine musical ability as a soloist.
She was assisted by Miss Rose Eiaigh
V. B. Fulton and others. The most
popular partof the evening's entertain
ment was the rendition of "Mooa-light
will come again" in which Mrs. Jes
ter, Miss Rose Emigh, Messrs Plumb
and Welch took part. This piece
seemed to be the crowning glory of
the evenings entertainment The
Chief would like to mention all of
the worthy parts, but space forbids,
suffice it to say that each and every
one did well, and their musical gen
ius is a credit to the city. The en

I have thin day concluded to open up
A Cash House, February 1, 1889,
I will run a strictly cash house. Please cull and note my
prices. It will be a greater cut on prices than one cent a
mile by the railroad company. I will positively NOT sell
one cent's worth of goods ou time. IT any goods that sell for
15c or two for 25c, I will sell for 12c, fcc. Will make exact
change so you see you will saye 20 per cent by trading at a
Strictly Cash House. You will not have to help pay bad
accounts. As a credit business is run all customers have to
pay more for goods to help pay the lof ses of bad debts. I cn
do business for less profit for cash, and that is what I am go
ing to do
Sell Strictly for Cash or Produce !
So come and see me and you will say that I have struck the
right key note to that great hereafter which means in a
commercial way great success in business. All will say we
have found the place and the man to trade with. Come,
come, come and see me I will do you good.
