TnEKED CLOUD CHIEF,
WD WfJ tt-e
I Tho fair held in tho Moon block last
week, under the auspices of tho Red
i Cloud o. of V. Bund, wns a grand sue
cess, financially and otherwise, and will
doubtless be the theme for conversation
'for somo time to come, ns it was tho
' talk of the day far ahead of time.
On Monday, the opening evening, tho
spacious hall was literally packed with
n choice gathering of people, and stand
ing room was at a premium. After u
short concert on tho stage in tho rear of
the Iinll, "Papa" Bell invited the visitors
to make themselves at home, and called
their attention to the dilTerent booths
situated around the room: The candy
booths, with the choicest of hoino-inado
BweetmeatBj the notion counter, whero
articles of every description wero for
sale, from a silver spoon and toothpick
up to the finest pair of curtains tho
market albirdx; the popcorn cm liter;
the llsh pond, where he promised thorn
they should catch no tish weighing more
than twenty-five pounds; besides num
erous other iiiiniH'uionls. Kverylhing
at once was a scene of confusion and
the dilTeient vendeis were kept busy.
The llsh pond was piobably tho most
amusing, causing a continuous roar of
laughter. One small boy said: "When
she pulled out that pretty base ball
mask, all covero I with white cloth,
and ntinther'n got a whole lot of wiro
circles, tied together with white ribbon,
you bet I jes' 'hoops' her up." And so
the fair continued throughout tho week,
with no material change. A concert
was rendered each evening.
As Saturday evening was to bo tho
banner night, the hall was tilled to over
flowing. The dilTerent articles for
which tho Noting ladies had been solicit
ing during the week were to he handed
out, and the notion counter cleaned out
at auction, the following parties wore
awarded the piomiuiiiH-.
Miss Sarah Knowles, settee.
Hugh Miner, rug.
C. Wiener, harness.
D.J. Mers, chenille cm tains,
Dell Abel, lamp.
Turnuro Bros., horse.
By popular opinion, Miss Clara Mc
Millan beinir the ftvorite, she wns pre
sented with a handsome gold watch.
As the last niinnto arrived, before the
final decision, the two factious (several
names were on tho board, but tho crowd
had now divided and wero working for
but two young ladies, Miss McMillan
and Miss Jennie Bell) became excited
and handed the money in rapidly. TIiIb
part of tho fair was a howling success,
and added many dollars to tho receipts,
Many thanks aro duo to the nior
chants and otherH for donationH, and to

On Wednesday evening, pursuant to
call of Mayor Bentloy, over 'J(K) citizens,
business men and interested spectators,
gathered in Hen t ley V hall for the pur
pose of rekindling the spirit ef enthus
instil in our people, and to organio a
.commercial club for the purpose of keep
ing that enthusiasm alive, mid to pro
mote tho interests of Red Cloud at all
Several speeches were made by our
interested citizens. Alfred Hadell stated
tho objects of the meeting, as nid Hon.
Randolph McXitt, Major Bentloy. John
M. Challln, Roht. Potter. R. B. Fulton,
and others, and the meeting was filled
with old time enthusiasm, such as Red
Cloud has not observed for a long time.
Tho meeting proper was called to or
der by Robt. T. Potter. Kbij., mid the
aims and objects stated.
O. C. Bell was elected as chairman
and R. T. Potter secretary.
On motion, Alfred Hadell wiih elected
Chairman of the club, and a better
selection for the head of the club could
not have been made, as ho is abreast of
the times and thoroughly alive to the
interests of Red Cloud, and will devote
his eutito nttvhlion to the upbuilding of
D. J. Myers was elected permanent
secietary. Mr. Myeis is fully awake to
tho needs of the city, and will do his
part to help the city forgo ahead with
old time vigor.
A board committee of live membera
was selected, viz: J. L. Miner. B. F.
Mizer, Randolph McXitt, M. It. lientley,
A. C. Hosinor.
A committee on organization was
elected as follows: It. McNitt, J. O.
Butler, A, C. liosmer.
After soveral enthusiastic addresses
tho mooting adjourned until Thursday
evening at 7:110. to perfect the organisa
tion. Xow, lot tho mombers of tho Commer
cial Club, and every poison interested in
Red Cloud, talk it at all times. Do not
talk ngniusL your own town, but buck it
up witu every inducement possible, und
thereby givo encouragement to people
who aro in business and to strangers
who come this way. It is thopiofes
sional croaker that does a city tho most
injury. Ho b'iIh on the corner day after
day, saying tho town has gone tc smash,
when, in reality, it is his ambition that
is at fnult. The spirit of praise is like
a coutngiouH disease; it spreads over n
community and soon fans enthusiasm
into a iierpotual blaze, and oftimen
makes largo towns out of smaller bo
ginmngs than Ked (Jlnud. bhall wo
have that spirit pervade Red Cloud
again, or shall wo go buck into decay?
Tin: Ciiii:k does not anticipate that
much can bo accomplished at once, but,
by united effort, 'everything will come
to ho who waits'' and keeps bin shoulder
llrmly to tho wheal, blocking all back
ward tendencies. Let ue go slow, but
make a firm stand for future prosperity
and ultimate success, thereby triumph
ing over all obstacles thrown in tho way
of absolute progress for Red Cloud and
the unifying of her interests,
In continuanco f.f tho efforts abovo
mentioned quite a largo number of citi
zona mot in Bentloy 's hall last ovouing
and perfected tho organization although
it was not what wan expected, yet the
seed sown may bo of gieut b'enelit to tho
city. Ono thing is cortain if Red Cloud
is to got to tho front something w ill havo
to bo done at once by our people.
I havo 1 10,000 ptr month to loan on
