which way the appointment is made,
more than to see that the office does
not go begging for an officer to taVe
charge of it.

C. Wiener, our popular clothing
merchant has just returned from the

clothing, furnishing goods, etc, ever
purchased for a western store. 3Ir.
Wiener has been in the business a
life time and fully understands the
wants of the people. He is an honor
able and upright geatleman in all of
his business relations, and has become
closely identified with the interests of
Red Cloud, coming here in the fall of
'So, he purchased the clothing store
of John Hay, and from that time to
this has been wonderfully successful
in his business career. This has
been accomplished by the strictest
honesty and business integrity, and
in fair treatment to his large Hoc of
customers. The Ciieif has been ac
quainted with 31 r. W. ever since his
arrival in Red Cloud, and can say
that he is one of the most solid busi
ness men in the west. If honesty,
fair treatment and good busiacss taet
will accomplish success, 3Ir. W.
will surely gain the pinnacle. The
CuEir wishes him that future success
that he so riehly deserves as he is one
of the most liberal supporters of the
newspaper fraternity in the city.

for Water Power.
A Chief reporter while engaged in
conversation with some of our promi
nent citizens one day this week, was
told that au effort would soon be made
by capitalists to build a canal similar
to the ene in Kearney, in Red Cloud.
The plans have not been made out
yet for the proposed canal, but is
soon as they are there will be a chance
given to our citizens to take hold of
'lie matter -and push it through. Such
n enterprise a that would be of in
calcuablc benefit to the citv,
and would furnish a water
power uncqutled in the
the state. Let the company be orga
nized at once and gotten under head
way. The Kearney canal has done
more than any ene thing to build
that city up to its present proportioas,
and will ultimately make it a large
city. Red Cloud caa construct a

At Guide Rock, the other day, a
gentlemen of that place become sick,
and after awhile, to all appearance
passed from thi wcrJd of trials to one
of perpetual sunsl inc. His friends
were notified and at once gathered
around his inanimate form, and wept
as people will under like circum
stances. The undertaker was notified
and with a few friends proceeded to
his late residence to perform one of
the last sad rites in such cases, pre
paring his body for the grave. The
work wan done and the body laid on a
cooling board exposed to the chilling
atmosphere over nicht, the grave bad
been prepared, the coffin procured,
and everything made ready for a due
observance of the solemn occasion
of depositing in mother earth the body
of oae who had departed for the great
land beyond the blue. The morning
came, but behold with it came the
discovery that the body was still
warm. This fat led to sonding for
one of our city phybicians, who on ar
riving on the scene, placed his ear
over the region of the man's heart
and at once discovered that it per
formed its regular functions. Re
storatives were administered and in a
short time afterwards there appeared
more evidence that the man was alive,
and only lay in a comatose condition
or a trance as it is generally called.
The probabilities arc that if medical
aid had not been procured when it
was he would have been buried alive
and nobody would have known his
fate unless discovered by accident in
some other way.
Later. Since the above was put
in type 31r. Fairfield, the man whom
the article above rcfered to, never
rallied from the condition named, and
finally the body gave evidence of dis
solution, and he was buried on Wed
nesday afternoon. He was 70 years
old and had been sick for five years.
It is decidedly a strange case.
