elegant supper was served, und the toasts
tho merry making and all wbb not over
until 12 o'clock.
Several games wore played, eoveral
musical selections both vocal and in
strumental were rendered, and the hon
ored guests were shown all the courtesies
possible. Some vory polished addresses
wore delivered, and impromptu speaking
waa indulged in by those accustomed to
that very embarrassing style of public ad
dress. Prof. Caster served with dignity
and credit as toast master, and the ex
ercises wore naturally entertaining and
instructivo to all present. Those pres
ent of tho Senior cluss were: Tho Misses
Daisy Plumb, Emma Cook, Grace Gar
ber, Mayo Pope, Lois Pope and Marga
ret Minor, and the Messrs. Goo. Overing,
Roscoe Cather, John Potter, Henry

Do wo wuut it? That will bo tho
question. Can wo tako caro of the
boot proposition is another question!
The Chief is in favor of doint every
thing possiblo to secure tho enterprise
from tho fact that it wo secure this fac
tory others will follow, and we all know
that tho city of Red Cloud noeds tho
factory and ull others thut will locuto
hero. Wo ure in tho midst of u fine boot
raising country nnd tho procpectors
know this as well as wo do, henoe it will
be as much to their Intorcst us it is to
ours to get und give tho host proposi
tions that wo can socuro. Tho factory
would bo of incalculable bonollt to this
city and county, furnishing as ib would
n ilno homo market for tho best raising
product und tho most prolific ruanoy get
ter thut wo huve ovor attempted to pro
duco in Wobstor county. This fact hue
beon easily proven by Anthony Sohaefer,
who raised 200 tons of boots in 18!) t mak
ing a clear profit of $900. If such an
amount of monoy can ba cloared on 30
aores of land in a droutby oeasoa what
ceuld bo obtained in a favorable season?
Mr. Schaefor had to pay freight to Nor
folk. It the factory should' be located
in Red Cloud, the freight ooetwouid be
obviated. Those are two roesous why
we ought to work for tho factory. In
tho mountimo let our business men uso
their beet endeavors to soouro th best
possible contract with tho Drm, und at
tho samo timo loavo no loophole for
failure to operate. We beliaw the gold
