Runchey and Nightwntch Miller cap
tured a wandering gontloman who was
in possession of a bicycle which had
bcon stolen from Greeley, Col. Sheriff
Runchey noticed tho fellow standing on
tho State bank corner, tho wheel stand
ing near by. On comparing tho wheel
with a circular in his possession, John
gavo the uightwatch tho wink and thoy
immediately foreclosed on the party,
who doclarod his innocenco and wanted
a chanco to identify himself. While on
tho way to the jail, tho two policemen
proposed entering E. McFarland's storo
to givo tho thief his chance, but that
wasn't the chanco ho waa looking for.
Giving tho wheel a shove into tho storo,
he took to his heels, with Runchey und
Miller in hot pursuit. Tho nightwntch
drew bis gun and, calling on tho fellow
to halt, began ttring at his foot, but this
only increasod his speed, if that woro
posaiblo. So tho race continuod a fow
blocks, until our Hoot-footed bicycle
ridor ran into a wiro fence around some
vacant lota and wao again takon into
custody. Boing only a block from tho
Hotel d'Runchey, ho was escortod to
that domicile and registered. Ho gavo
his name as F. T. Rutledge, and, from
certain articles found on his porson, he
is supposed to bo inoro than n common
thief. Ho had safo blowors' tools, and
newspapor clippings concerning a bank
robbery in Ontario, Canada, with which
it is thought ho wan eonnected. A ro
ward of $10 was offorod for the wheel
and 910 for the thiof nt Greeley. If tho
bank robber suspicions prove corroct,
there will probably bo n nico fat reward
coming from that quarter There wero
two wheols stolon at tho same tlnio from
Greeley, and Rutledgo is supposed to
havo a partner somowhoro.

Ono of our traveling salosmen, who
travols for a clothing firm, has a novel
way of onjoying hlniBolt while on the
road. Entering a clothing store, ho will
politely ealuto the merchant, at tho
Bamo timo taking a huge overcoat from
a grip and handing it to tho clothier to
oxamino. Tho hotter the day the bottor
the fun. After enlightening the mer
chant on this and that point, our sales
man finally induces him to try tho tit.
He then tolls tho morchant how nico
tho back sots, etc., for about ton min
utes, walks round and buttons tho front
up tight, showing him how the chest
flta and complimenting tho double row
of buttons which ahow tho full length,
then turning up the ten inch collar he
explains how it is impossible for any
enow or cold to reach tho head or neck,
also the band across tho front to guard
the chin and mouth from the wintry
blasts and all this for halt an hour in
the hottest of June woathor. Think of
the thermomotor at 1.10 in the ehado
and that man at 1.47 in the coat, try
ing to breathe with that strap acroea bin
mouth and tho cornor of a lapel in oach
nostril, and to make things hotter, the
traveling man keeping up a constant tiro
of words, Talk about onorgy; bo's tho
"hottest" travolor wo'vo gor. The mer

After tho excitement had somowhnt
subsidod, Hugh Minor rode n milo with
a Hying start, against time, but the timo
keopor had a stop-watch and was un
able to announco tho time.
Tho fifth nnd last event was n half

On Wednesday morning at 8 o'clock
occurred tho wedding of Miss Addlo
Rolglo, ono of Rod Cloud's fair and ac
complishod young ladioa, to Mr. Fred
Ligget, tho popular and cultured cashier
of ono of tho Hebron banks. Miss
Roiglo has rosidod in Red Cloud einco

to maturo womanhood within tho con
fines of our city, whoro she has hnnln nf
friends among all classes, and while hor
many iriontis aro Borry to loeo hor from

The happy couple took tho 10:30 train
for their future homo, Hebron, amidst a
grand shower of rice, old shoos and boot
wishes of a multitude of Monde and rel
atives who followod them to the dopot.
The wedding waa unostentatious and

tho Congregational church. The Ciiikk
bids tho young couplo godspod and un
alloyed pleasuro in their conjugal rela
tions. Tho other day our reporter went into
a eortain restaurant in town and found
tho clerk busily ongaged in waiting up
on a young lady. Aftor the young lady
had departed, the olork walked round
and absent mindodly took the reporter's
ordor for a milk-shako. Taking tho jar
of ilavoring from tho upper ehelf, he
poured tho necessary amount into a
glass and then gontly sat tho jar undor
tho counter among tho lemonadoglassce,
at tho eamo timo asking who the young
lady was. He then shaved tho ice, put
It in tho glass, and thon, holding the
glass undor the water tank, longingly
inquired whero sho lived. Tho othor
pnrty didn't answer the question, but
aakod tho clerk who ho waa making that
mess for. On being brought to hm
sonsos ho was told what kind of a mix
ture ho had, and he thon declared ho
was making strawborry pop. Novertho
less, ho sot 'om up to the reporter.
