On last Monday evening, just as tho
sun bad sunk boneath the woetern hills,
bright light sprang up with oudden
liorceuess and spread its brightness over
the cannpv of heaven, in tho vicinity of
the Red Cloud Flouring Mills. The
Humes vied with each other in lapping
their serpentino tongues over, around,
mid upon evory vulnerable portion of
tho mill, with seeming determination to
swallow it up in one grand vortex of
flaming liquid. Tho soothing and hiss
ing of the itatnea were majestic as thoy
rapidly sproad forth tholr wings of des
truction, and in sixty minutes after the
fiery elements fastened their fanga upon
the structure, the 103,000 flouring mill
was razed to mother earth, nothing loft
to tell tho talo except a masa of ruins
and the basement upon which tho build
,IIow tho lire originated ia not known,
but thn flumes wero first noticed in the
topmost story by Mr. John Doyle's boy
wnllo milking, and, giving tho alarm, ho
drow out tho people living in that vicin
ity, who did tboir utmost to savo the
property, but to no effect, tho mill being
dry as ttndorand filled with inflammable
material, soon capitulated to tho fiery
Tho mill was located two miles south
weet of tho oity on the Republican river,
and was erected about nine years ago by
Kenyon Skeen, I FrUble, R, D. Jones
and others, and wub equipped with tho
finest milling machinery obtainable. In
addition to the mill was a large elevator
and the eloctrical lighting plant which
furnished the city of Red Cloud with
light. Tho elevator contained .1200
bushels of whout, 2400 bushels belong
ing to Geo. W. Llndxoy, valuod at about
I1G00; COO bushels belonging to Goorgo
Maynard, valuod at about $100, and
about 200 bushels belonging to Tumplo-
ten A Guthrie, which firm had juBt
leased the mill. Thero waa no insur
ance on tho wheat und therefore it waa
a total loss.
Anthony Schaefer had juat loaded a
car of boots ou tho track in front of the
mill, and the car and beet wore both
The elootric light plant cost about
112000, tho elevator and mill with con
tents about 105000.
At the time of the fire tho mill was
being put in shape to be run by the firm
of Temploton & Guthrie of Superior,
who had leased it for a number of years.
Tho dyke which had been washed out
by the spring freshet was being put
back in and overy thing looked favorable
to the resumption of the milling busi
neea in good shape before the ond of the
week, and our people felt jubilant ovor
the matter, but tho old proverb that
"man proposes and Qod disposes" waa
Naturally enough our peoplo feel tho
blow because It destroy ono of tho boat
and most substantial enterprises in Red
Cloud, one which will take considerable
money to replace. Wo hava not learnod
tho amount of insurance, but it will not
cover the loss whatever it may be, ns the
mill ia a total lose.
The CniKF fondly hopes that efforts
will be made to replace the mill at an
Tho Argua baa alwaya bad the credit
of being fair it nothing more with its
news, but ita account of the Naponeo
Blue Hill ball game at Red Cloud last
w eok waa a shame to the town and a
blot of very large sizo on tho truthful
ness of the paper. In the firat place tho
Naponeo players are regularly organized
and J had the same men they have been
playing all Eoaaon, all living at Maponeo
except one, while Rod Cloud had but
two players from their own town, bring
ing tho otbor seven from Blue Hill.
Then the umpire waa aa fair aa an um
pire could bo, if anything giving tho
Blue Hill fellows all doubts. Ae to the
pitchers, it was gonorally oondoded that
Naponee's was the best although ho only
fanned out ono man whllo Blue Hill's
pitcher fanned two. It was tha auporb
fielding of the latter club that won tho
game. It was a rank injustice to the
Naponeo boya who aro gentlemen and
pi ay good ball as well as to tho readors
of tho Argua to print such an account.
Such a "basely lie.' The ball players of
Red Cloud should bo ashamed of thorn
selves, too, that they are not ablo to
scare up but two men in tho whole town
that can play ball. In conversation
with the captain of the Naponeo olub
before the gamo he said, "We came
dowa to play Red Cloud but now that
they have' rung in Blue Hill on ua we
expect to be beaten but we will do the
bast we am." Taa Chuck. and.Natloa
