THE RED CLOUD CHIEF, FRIDAY, NOV. 15, 1895.
There is not a more familiar figure
.on the streets of Atlanta than the man
mhoAc picture U here shown. Every
body knows him by sight and It will be
remembered that years aim he bctran
ito wear on his upper lip, just under
his uosc, a small piece of court plas
ter, not larger than a silver nail mine;
this plaster he has worn constantly,
though It gradually increased in size,
as everybody knows, until It was as
large as a silver dollar. This man is
M. M. Nicholson, who resides at the
corner of Anderson and Curran Sts.
It was thirty ycara ago, that he first
noticed a tiny scale, like a piece of
wheat bran, on his lip. He at first
thought it only a fever blister, but It
.was not long before his checks became
diseased and painful to the touch, and
he soon realized that he had fallen a
victim to that most dreadful disease
Cancer. It rapidly increased in size
and severity, and remembering that
his father had cancer when he died,
and that his uncle also lost his life by
this terrible disease, which destroyed
his tongue, throat and left eye, Mr.
Nicholson became thoroughly alarmed,
and realized that his condition waa
more than serious.
M. M. NICHOLSON.
Giving up entirely his business, he
went to Cincinnati and remained for
several months tinder treatment of a
celebrated specialist. Me was after-
Wards treated in Eltnlra, New York,
where the cancer was twice removed,
but he declares that death was prefer
able to such treatment It returned,
however, and the disease seemed to be
of a most virulent type; the doctors af
forded absolutely no relief, the cancer
spreading all the time, eating out en
tirely the partition in the nose, aa well
aa the upper lip and gums.
"Some months ago," he says, I be
au to use 8. S. 8., though I admit with
ttic laitn that it could cure me, nut to
my surprise, a lew bottles anoraea
some relief. Thus encouraged, I de
termined to give the medicine a thor
ough trial, and It waa not long before
the progress of the disease seemed
Checked. I continued the medicine,
And remarkable aa it may seem, I am
fcured and feel like I have new life. I

Red Cloud should make strenuous ef
forts to awake the latent enthusiasm
that was wont to pervade the business
interests ot this city. The fellow who
lays down when times are stringent ie
the man who generally loses, Let's
awake and do business.
The democrats lay the land-slide in
southern atateo to free silver., but a man
with halt an eye could easily divine the
cause, which is simply that the demo
crats party is not able to cope with the
questions of the day, and thoy know
that the republican party will and can
handle all of the great questions ef tho
day, to the beat Interests of the people.
That ia the why ot it.
Death r T. E. llan.
Edoak, Nob., Nov. 11, 1895.
Friend Hosher: On November 4th,
your old friend, la Ham (Thomas E),
passed quietly away at his home in this
oity, after an illness of seven weeks
The ailment was paralysis. Seven weeks
before, on Sunday morning, he waa first
attaoked, losing the use' of hia right arm
for a abort time. He nearly regained
tne uee oi it, when, three weoka from
the first stroke, came a second, in which
he lost the use of his entire right aide,
and, till hia death, was conflnod to his
bed. The last five daya of hia illness he
waa unable to take nourishment, and,
after the second stroko, he waa unable
to talk. The end waa very quiet, there
not being a struggle or the movement of
a muscle. He was buried here on the
Cth inat. He was born at Kinderhook,
N. Y., and lived in New York state till
18G9, then moving to Illinois. He moved
to Nebraska in 1881, and to Edgar in the
fall of 1894, being here just eleven
months. We are awful lonesome with
out him. Love to all. A. Q. Dikul.
The above card, conveying the sad
new ot the death of T. E- Ham, was a
great shock to the editor ot The Ciiief,
and no doubt will be to his many
friends. He waa a man who bore an
unblemished character, and who tried
to live aa near right aa possible. He
had hosts of friends in thia olty and
county who will be pained to learn of
hia demise. The Chief extends its sym
pathy to the wife and children ot the
deceases, knowing indeed that the va
cant chair In that household can ne'er
be filled by human agency. He waa a
fiure type of manhood, and an excep
tonally kind husband and loving father.
May his ashes rest in peace, and his soul
?;o to hia Maker, where it will enjoy the
ruita of pure christian life.

The Supervisor Question,
Inavalk, Neb., Nov, 13, 1895.
Editor Chief Red Cloud, Neb.,
Diah Sir: Now that tho war of
elcotien is over, would it not be a
righteous aet now, right sway, for
every tax payer and good citizen el
this county who has tho boat interest
ot the eounty at stake, to urge, and
see to it immediately, that proper
measures be taken at oneo to proceed
to the end, that a sifty injunction
hanging over tho ceunty, conceived
eviasnily in the mieds of a very
few, to enjoin iha will of the
people: 'a clear majority of ten
votea sgainet township organi
zation as it existed a year ago, and an
overwhelming majority, 466, for re
turning to the commissioner system,
but, through the imbecility of a
judge, he granted an injunction
against tho peoplo and agaiast the
autherity that, by statutory authority,
has the appointing power to carry
out the edict of a vory large majority
of the voton of this county.
And, too, after tho supreme court
said no injunction could lay against
the majority of votora by a minority,
for very ebvious rsssons, thereby, a
olear case why no injunction should
have ever been granted at all; but
still the judge does not dissolve
his nonsensical injunotion, restrain
ing the proper authority from ap
pointing the commissioners, aoeording
to the will of a large majority.
And now wo are, where, we know
not; but presumably under another
system or organization more obnox
ious, unwieldy, fully as expensive,
and much more unsatisfactory than
the old system, which was generally
admitted te be the worst that could
be conceived by silly man. But
many think the last system still
But now, as to how we can help
ourselves. It will take a little money,
probably seven or eiht dollars for
cash voting preoinot or ward in the
osunty to have the matter earned up
to a higher court, and have the
judge's injunotion upset; and, as it is
a publio mattor of impertanse, the
court will undoubtedly render an
opinion immediately, and, removing
the restraint of county officials, they
will att at onoe and put the eounty in
position, as the sovereign will of the
people direoted by their votes a year
ago last eleotioB, thereby saving the
eounty (en times more than the cost,
besides removing a great deal of dis
satisfaction. What say you, every
tax payer and interested oitizen of
Webster oounty ? Speak out, and
take action at ones.. Faiimib,
Six wpeks sgo I suffered with a severe

Children Ory for
Population of Hell.
In a late edition of an English
Free-thinkers' magazine, wo find some
curious statistics on the relative num
ber ef souls that have been saved and
lost sinco tho creation of the world.
They are very faulty as well ss rash
Ip presumptive (this latter remark re
fers to the probable number of souls
lost between iho date of the birth of
Adam and that of Christ), but aro
queer and Interesting nevertheless.
The fallowing is a synopsis of the
In round numbers tho earth has a
population of 1,300,000,000, of whom
300,000,000 aro proved Chri-tintis,
the other 1,000,000,000 being Mo
hammedans, Buddhists, Jews, pjgnns
and heathens. Tho whole race wbb
ooadrmnod to eternal punishment for
tbo sin of Adam. This was the fall
of man aad for which there was and
is no redemption, save through the
.death of Christ.
Biblical chronology gives tho earth
a pe'riod of 6,000 jcars. From Ad
am's time down to tho date of tho
birth of Christ was 4,000 year, dur
ing which timo nil human souls were
lost. The population tf tho glooo
during that 4,000 years averaged, wo
will say, 1,000,000,000. Thrco gen
erations, or 3,000,000,000, passed
away eaeh century.
Forty centuries, thereforo, consign
ed 120,000,000,000 human souls to
eternal fire, and, if wo are to bolieve
tho doctrines of eternal punishment,
tlioso souls must still to in hall, In
the 1,900 years which have elapsed
sinoe Christ's birth, 57,000,000,000
moro'of human beings have lived and
died. If all the Christians, nominal
and real, who havo lived on tho faoo
of the earth havo been saved, they
woutd not number over 18,000,000,;
Now, if we deduct the latter num
ber from tho grand total of 177,000,
000,000, the n amber whivh have been
born sinoe the oreatien, we find that
159,000,000,000 of seula are now suf
fering the terments of hell fire,
against a possible 18,000,000,000 who
have escaped. But this is not the
whole truth. No one bolieyes that
over 10 per cent of professed Chris
tians sra really such. The Calvioists
say that tho elect aro very few. Say
that 10 per cent of tho so-oslled
Christians havo been saved, which is
very doubtful, then hssveu contains a
population of Us than 1,800,000,000,
