cided to incorporate a home company
with a capital sufficient to build a
road or two, to different points from

The people are in earnest in this mat
ter and there is no doubt but what
they will have everything soon arran
ged in that regard. This should have
b&ea accomplished long ago, instead
of -waiting for some one to build it
for" us. Let the people push this mat
ter and something will be done. The
faets are that those fellows who
throw cold water on all enterprises of
this kind should be set down on hard,
andf given to understand that this is
not. the kind of talk that goes in lied
Cloud. Enterprises gotten up for
the purpose of dividing the people
should afso be scorned. It is just
such things as that, that kills crow
ingfowns. Where men are permitted
to "project institutions for the avowed
purpose and intention of breaking
down enterprises already numerous in
the city, and creating a dissension in
the rank and file of the people for po
litical efftct, hurts a city more than
any one thing else and looks as if
their interests were purely selfish, and
that their outward professions of in
terest in the welfare of the city was
only a sham and a burlesque. Such
methods should be dealt with as they
deserve. That kind of sentiment
bhould not be allowed to exist in the
community where there is so much
at stake in the up building of the
town as there is in Red Cloud.
That Jail QtirMlnn.
We can not sec what difference it
should make to the public, if sonic
fellow should sub contract to Luild
the new jtil free of charge as far as
general results wero concerned if the
people secured a jail that actually
cost and was worth $10,000. It is no
sign that because Mr. Brubaker took
the contract to build th wall and fnr
nish tlie weod work for $.",000 that
he will make or lose money, or that
the balance of the material will not
cost the other $3,000 remaining. The
contract as near as we understand it,
was for a structure to be actually
worth $10,000, or as near that as pos
sible barring the contractor's proiits,
of which he should be entitled to.
We think the board did well in let
ting the contract as they did, and be
lieve that they acted in good faith,
and that the jail will be vrortb the
money paid for it uotwithstandinc
tha; the snb contractors' price was
only half of the contractors price.
ail will cost the contractors at
irast $S,.00 to $0,500 when complet
ed, notwithstanding the croaking? of
a fow discontented chaps who desire
to gain fame by insinuating that
"steals1' abound everywhere except
under their own vine and fig tree.
If we may be permitted to use an in
elegant expression, we should say
-oeme off the dump" and cease howl
ing about the county jail.

The Public Worship ol Co c
Let tho American people cling to the
l'ublic Worship of God and to the Christ
ian religion. It is their olIv safety. The
History of nations, states and communi
ties, greater and smallor, has shown over
and OTer again, how the Public Worship
of God produces thoo effects in the opin
ions, habits and spirit of tho people which
contribute to the public security and pros
perity; and how on thu other hand, the
neglect of it produced n fearful demorali
zation of communities. It is not, then,
a matter of individual nnd general con
cern for the people of Kcd Cloud to
maintain the Public Worship of God!
What substantial reason is there why.
not only til Christian people, hut all
worthy citizens, should not cooperate in
upholding the church and in creating a
public sentiment that will lead all classes
of society to honor God's house with their
pre'unce It is especially incumbent up
on professional men. pnblic school teach
ers and tho conductors of the local pres.
todothi. We naturally look to them,
among other clice, to aid in teaching;
moral truth nnd in building up public,
moral character; but no man can do
much in that line who is n habitual ne
glector of tho sanctuary on the Lord's
day. Perhaps no state in the union, pre

above mentioned nrinciples, as Indiana

apart from the Pnblic Worship of Ood.
has observed and read to very little pur
pose. Is it not plain from what has been
said in this nnd in previous articles, that
it is essential to the well being of this
city that the great mass of her citizens be
seen in the sanctuary on the Lord's day.
Bet. if instead, the great mass of thepeo-
p!e forsake tbe hoae of God on the Sab
bath, and spend the day at home, is idle
res and ia ways indifferent to very
thing religious, will it necesar.tfly pro
duce a state of society full of danger to
