The new state banking law took ef
fect Jane 1. and will be the veaar of
routing ont nwnerous sltasy affairs
that are only banks in name. The
bow law will protect the people to a
large extent against frauds.
Tie r?airbury people are very jubi
Isut over the faet that both eoal and
Mtbn have been discovered in or near
flfcat eity. We agin arise and ask
What has become of the. Red Cloud
Improvement Company?" It- is cer
tainly time that it was gotten into
shape lor business. There is certain
ly as much show here for coal as else
where. Come boys, get to the front.
There has been lots of fun this
week over the equalizing of the as
sessment. Everybody kicks, that is
those who are assessed more than they
think they ought to be, but still Mr.
Downs has assessed the property
about right. Heretofore people have
growled because the city was not as
sessed high enough, and now they
growl because it is too high, a case of
"never satisfied." If a man has a
$30,000 stock, he should be assessed
honestly, and honestly is about $10,
000. If he his real estate thai, is
valuable it should be assessed at
fai valuation, whatever that way be.
Tiie Chief does no believe iu ifttio
the rich man oif just because l.c's
rich, no sir, lie should pay his taxes
just like a man does who is less fortu
nat3 in the world's good. What the
people want is a man who will assess
all alike, bota rich and poor accor
ding to Tvhat they have without auy
nartialty. That's business.
Memorial day was observed here by
the school with a program suitable

It is not often that a man has to be
arrested and forced into a paying job,
especially in the west. Last week
The Chief chronicled the fact that
Sheriff Scott, and several others were
arrested and taken to Omaha for con
tempt of the U. S. court for moving
the engine from the electric light
works. The prisi oners were taken
before Judge Pundy, and on agreeing
to replace the engine were permitted
to go free except Sheriff Scott, whom
the Judge took into his confidence
aad appointed him to the tat position
f receiver of the defunct Red Cloud
Milling Company. The appointment
could not have fallen into better
bands, as Henry trill see to it that
all parties will get their just desertb,
for a squarer man than he never lived.
By the time this article is before our
readers we apprehend he will
be in full charge ef the mill
with instructions from the Judge
to uq as be sees best witu the I air. J&iebardson bas buu a very
property. One thing can be assured 1 tt barn on his place here, and has
there will be no "robbing Peter to pr.y done quite an amount of fencing,
Paul" as long as Receiver Scot!, has which adds greatly to the cenven
charge of tho affairs of the Red Cloarf icnce of the place.
Decoration day was duly observed
at Mt. Hopa, and everybody came
full prepared for the occasion with
lots of flowers to strew over the
graves oi the dead heroes. After the
people got together the marshal band
gave us some excellent music followed
by sosgs from the choir. Brother
Williamson gave a short address well
suited for the occasion, after which
tbe tev. J. T. atone led in prayer.
After dinner the procession was for
med and then marched to the ceme
tery to decorate tbe graves, then
they marched to Oriole headed by tho
band, next came the old veterans, fol
lowed by the sons of voterans, then
came the girls with flowers. There
was a large procession when they ar
rived at Oriole, and the school chil
dren with their teacher joined in
with them and marched through the
cemetery and everybody felt that they
had done their duty in showing their
rohj)oct for those that fought and
died to save our country. Sid.
McEwen. May 2G, 1889.
Perhaps the readers of Tub Chief
would like to har a few lines from
the sunny south.
In the first place everything is
booming since Harriion has moved
into the White House and took bold
of the lines to drive the republican
team for the next four years.
.Things are brightening up, and pri
ces are raising on all kinds of pro
duce, more work to do and more mon
ey to pay off the men.
The spring opened early, in fact we
didn't realize that we had any winter
the streams were not frozen over.
It commenced raining yesterday
morning and rained bard till this
Clover is mostly cut and in the
barn, wheat is good and will be ready
to harvest in about two weeks.
Fruit is an average crop the trees
are not as heavy loaded as they were
last season, but thete will be plenty
and better size. The early peaches
are already commencing to turn red.
Peanut raising is carried on exten
sively in this locality, and as you get
about a $1.00 a bushol, it makes it a
very profitable crop. L. A. A.

Tfce Greatest Horror or the Ae.
The great flood at or near Johns
town, Penn., by whicb from eight to
fifteen thousand people lost their
Hvjs as estimated, by a reak in an
artificial lake, at that place, is one of
the greatest horrors known ia this
country, and necessarially must shock
the world at the enormity of tbe ca
tastrophe. A lake, a mile wide, from
three to four miles long and 100 feet
deep, is a mighty volume of water,
and no one can conceive of the mag
nitude or force of such a volume when
pouring through a crevice or aper
ture unrestrained. The wall was sap
posed to be en an average of seventy
feet through of solid masonry It ap
pears that a warning had been sent
to the people of the town to "flee to
ihe hills" but no attention was paid
to jt, as the same warning had been
givci every year when a freshet
-eame, and all uaheedful of tbe calam
ity that was upon them, the people
remained at tbeir homes, only te be
wept away like "sheep to the slaugh
tor." The scene beggars description
ia aa arouad tbe stricken eity, aad
twords caaaot express the iameasity
of (his ' aaequaled horror, aad tbe
ntiaery tld destitution that will fol

A small boy was asked to write a
composition on the subject of breath
ing, and he said: "Breath is made
of air. We breathe with our lungs,
our lights, our liver and kidneys. If
it was not for our breath we'd die
when we slept. Our breath keeps the
life a oin' thiough the nose when we
are asleep. Boys that stay jn a room
all day should not breathe. They
should wait till they got out doors.
Boys in a room make bad, unwhole
some air. Corbonicide is poison
er than mad dogs. A heap
of soldiers was in a black bole in In
dia, and a corbonicide got in that
bole and killed nearly every oae afore
morning. Girls kill tbe breath with
eorsets that squeeze tbe diagram.
Girls eaa't holler or run like boys be
cause tbeir diagram is squeezed too
Much. If I was a girl I would rather
be a boy, so I can holler aad ran and
have a great big diagram." Ex.
