The Great rrektesn Par Ik Parmer
The greatest affliction that the av
erage farmer ha to cope with ia the
extremely low prices that prevail on
tlio productions of the farm
pocinlly in tho wcst.nt thin timo
cause of which is very difficult to di
vine, prices in many instance boing
scarcely abovo tho cost of raining.
How to remedy thin growing evil is a
momentous fcuhjeut that has jheon
worrying tho tiller of tho soil for a
lounldcrnblo loiigth of time. Vari
ous Rouictiea huvo heen organised at
different pcriodo which wora calcu
lated to promote tho jiuio of tho farm
or and unite with them in their ef
forts to brine about tho desired re
sults, but up to date the great pans
eea that ia to be tho harbinger of
hotter prices has not been dircovered,
nnd from yenr to year, prices scrum to
get lower and lower, until todaj it ia'
positively a fnot, that after a year's
labor, tho farmer often cones out be
hind . There seems to be a general
effort on iho part of thoao who have
control of the wealth of tho country
to oppress the agricultural world, and
keep their noses to the grindstone.
There are a few men who oontrol the
markets of the world, and manipulate
them to All their own pockets, to the
dotrimont of all other olasses. Why
this should bo so wo are at Iota to
know. Vast monopolies havo been
incorporated contrary to the spirit of
our republican instltutiona, yet our
representatives in congress, and our
state legislatures, do not aaake any
attempt to alleviate the wronga of tho
less fortuaate class, but on the other
hand aoem to do all they are able to,
to holp the rich got rioher and the
poor poorer. It ia high time that the
farmers of tho country organizo
thoroughly, and with tho aid of labor
ing men generally, they would bo
able to dictate prices rather than be
dictated to by unprincipled million
airea who dosiro to relievo them of
all they are posessed of in order that
it may line their own oiothes with
gold. Take the price of eattle for
Jnotanco. In the list four yeara the
raising of cattle on the averago farm
has resulted in loss, and in many
cases absolute ruin to tho farmer,
prices having been controlled largely
by the great bcof combine, composed
of cxtensivo packing houses, lias
tho price of beef-steak been any low
er? No, and it never will bo tintil
thoro is a determined effort on tho
part of tho farmer to maintain his
rights. Tho farmer gets from one,
and a half, to two, and a half eonts
por pound for his eattlo, but tho
prieo of beef is the same, almost iden
tically ns it was whon fat cattle were
at their best. Some one must bo
nakiBg money, but it is not the farm
er, certainly. Tho samo can bo aaid
of all kinda of products that are rais
ed by the farmora generally. The
only romody that This Chief can ad
vanoo is for tho farmors to thorough
ly organice for their own piotootioo,
and not soil a dollar's worth of goods
unless they can get a fair living
price for what they raise. It is not
freo trade or high tariff that will help
tho farmer got even with tho blood
suckers, who are persistently endeav
oring to crush him, but it ia aelf
protection by thoroughly organising
to a man for thoir preservation, and
until this is dono, tho farmer and
laborer will bo continually robbed ef
what should be justly his good
prices. We hope that that time will
aeon bo hero. It the farmer do not
take this stand it will not be many
yoara bcfoio landlordism and wealth
will bo running as rampant in Amer

Tho counoil may persist in ignoring
tho wishes of the people in tho matter
of economy, but a final reckoning will
come sooner or later. Tin ClllKl'
has been interviewing a number of
our businoss men, and nearly alt of
those interviewed, agree that the sal
ary of tho aldormon and mayor ought
to be out down to nothing, also that
tho city expenses ought to bo trimmed
down at loaat 13,000. It is too muoh
to ask the people of Red Cloud to pay
18,000 per annum ir. taxca for the
benelt of keeping up a hordo of office
holders. Thore are plenty of men in
Red Cloud that could be induced to
look after city business without pay,
and would be glad to do it, If it
would lighten the burdon of taxation.
The money market is too close for
men to go down in thoir pockots for
the purpose of maintaining auch an
expensive oity government. Bettor
by far throw up the oity government
and go baok to a village organisation
if tt is going to tako tho earth to
keep it up. There should be a gen
eral movo for tho strictest economy
all along the lino, and when tho eity
is again on tho boom, and money
becomes moro plentiful, it will be
time enough to put on city airs. Will
the eity council heed the demands of
the peoplo in this mattor of economy.

Daring Christmas the editor cf
this paper, and wife, were Ia Beatrice
and while there attended tb! Christ
mas services at the above Institute,
which to say the least were very Ine,
and entertaining. The poor children
whose minds have been clouded from
infancy, here find a plnee where they1
have all the comforts that money and
care can bestow Upon them
by loving hands and by people
who havo spent a lifitime in a
work that sr.ost people wenld
not care to follow. The very best
kindergarten teachers are employed
by the state to instruct the children
and confer upon them all the advant
ages that brighter children havo in
our public aohools, and each teacher
enters tiponfttho work Mslgued, with
the same, or more pride than those
whose pupils are of the brighter type.
The Christmas exercises consisted
mostly of declamations and songs,
and to say that each child acquitted
himstlf nicely would be doine an ,in-
JuHtice. After that portion of the
exerclsce were over, each one of the
125 children were given a present
over the reeeival of whioh all were
highly pleased. On Ohriitmaa the
children were marabslled into the
dining rooms and there treated to as
fine a Christmas dinner aa was ever
spread before any one . Roast turkey
with cranberry sauce, oy stent, mince
pie, celery, bread and butter oandiea,
fruits, oranges etc. were dished up as
long as tho children could cat, and was
looked foward to with great eagerness
by the children. The work to"! be
accomplished is a great ono, but un-
dor the caicful management of Dr.
Armstrong, and his corps of able as
sistants, we look for much good to be
brought about in the work of educa
tion, ana in tact, ntting the poor
ohildron to boar the trials of life as
easily as possible. It ia n public
institution that our atate should pive
all tho entouragemeat that it can.

If Red Claud really wants to do
something that will enhance the val
ue of her real eatfte, and take the
city out of the lethargeie rut that
she bas been allowed to get into, It
oould do no better thing than to make
a lemma cnort to procure a sugar
beet factory. It haa been proven to
the aatiafaction of all that augar beets
equal to those of any eauntry can be
raised in Nebraska, in kfact it said
that tho aoil of Nebraska ia better
adapted than any in tho Unite i
States for raising augar beets, and
this boing tho ease, why not Red
iiouu put lortn an cnort to nave a
factory and thereby give the town a
olanoo to boom, and tho agricultural
surroundings would have a ehanro to
raise something that would be profit
able. TiiuCiiiuris first, last, and
all the time for Red Cloud, no matter
whether n few ebronioa would like to

this paper can raise above petty

comes to building up tho city. Tub
