Have Our Merchants Degenerated?.
This Is a question which it seeniB to
could ho answered by the woru
I OHO "
Several yea ago this city
drew trade from a radius of foi ty or
fifty miles and the linn nanio of some
of the merchants were a by-word forty
miles down in Kansas as well as In
Nebraska. It is not that way today
and it is getting worse instead of bet
tor. What is the reason for this? We
have a number of the same merchants;
they carry Just as good stocks of
goodk; sell just as low and of course
lower in accordance with the times
than they did then. The fact of tho
case is this. The merchants have de
generated and have fallen into back
oast ways; they have got to be moss
backs. Thoy wait for trade to come to
their doors and do not seek for it as
limy did in timet) past. Five or .six
years ago most men in business who
pretended tube merchants adveitised;
the columns of the home papers weio
tilled with announcements and prices.
People read these announcements and
were drawn to Red Cloud to do their
trading. Then it was hard for the pa
pers to find room for all the advertis
ing the. merchants wanted to place in
their columns but uow a newspaper
itigu has to get on his knees to even
get a little bit. The merebnuta have
declined in business push and are
penny wise and pound foolish. Leaving
out tho fact that trade is gained by ad
vertining there is nothing which speaks
so well away from home for thrift of a
city than the advertising that is seen
la the local paper.- You' way b away
troin home and some friend will re
ceive paper and if it is well filled
with advertisements of the home mer
chants you will hear him remaik that
the town must be a It ve one for the rea
son that the pnpers are well patronized.
If Ih ovine hicMng in this respect he
will say that the towu don't amount to
much. I'oudi'r over thi and if you
aonoi plartt a ttn dollar advertise
ment in i tie papei put in a one dollar
Tlieio is more oiuairh in this .section
of Hit! country than all other diseases
put together ami until the last few
yearn was supposed to In1 iuctiinbl.
For a great many jears doctors pio
uouucctl it a local disease, ami pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly falling to erne with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven catairh to be a constitu
tional disease, and thoieforu requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Cu
lm ih Cute, manufactured by F. J.
Chwiey At Co., Toledo, Ohio, is tho
only constitutional euro or. the market.
It is taken internally In doses from 10
drops to a teaspvonful. It acts directly
n the blood and mucous surfaces of
tho system. They offer one hundred
dollats for any case it fails to euro.

a great and mighty man pel haps and
there have probably been othcis who
could bo classed as nearly as great and
mighty, and still the sidewalks have
been broken and delapidated by these
young vandals. We believe that the
only way out of this dilemma is to
figure out some kind af walk, either
brick, stone or cement something
that will uot burn. We do not believe
that a brick pavement will cost con
siderably more than tho wood walk
taking into consideration its lasting
qualities. Whether brick suitablo for
this purposo can be obtained in this
city we do not know. Of course we
believe in using home product if it be
up to the right standard, otherwise we
believe an outside product should be
used. Tho city council should make
an otdiiiauce lequiring the building of
bi ick sidewalks at least iu front of the
business houses as the old ones need
rebuilding. Wyinore and soveral other

RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA. JULY 2, 1897.
County Institute. '
The teachers of Webster county as
sembled at Dip high school Monday In
their sixteenth auuaal session and tho
institute is now running in full blast.
Roll call was the order Monday after
noon and it wan really surprising to
see so many teaolicr present respond
ing so quickly to the superintendent's
call. We believe that the teacher who
attends the institute during this hot
weather ought to receive live dollars
extra per month.
Monday evening the first social was
given and from the ilpples of laughter
and tho bright happy oxpicssions
plainly visible upon every countenance
it would not be dilllcult for any one to
see that tho school inarms and mastcis
were having a huge time.
Tuesday evening Lieut-Governor
Harris gave a lecture in tho Christian
church to a goodly number and placed
tho teacher's profession second to no
calling on earth. The lectin o wa
pregnant with Interest and offetcd
much matter for after consideration
Thursday morning the regular woi k
began and everyone Bottled down to
work. Tho teachers thin vcaf exhibit
an u n mil id amount of vim and deter
mination. They tire taking the matter
up in a systematic manner and are to
be commended for their dlligonco and
their evident desire of becoming more
proficient iu their lino.
Wo heartily condemn such vilifying
and alroge.taer'uareasonable articles as
appeared in the Nation this week and
openly assert that anyone guilty of
publishing-such an outlandish tirade
against the faltbfuloverworkcd teach
ers ia a menace to good society and
oagbt to be ignored by all intelligent
people. Twas ever thus. A pop
would loudly lament his fortune if his
neighbor should find a gold mine and
leave him in Hie cold. This misguided
person thinks ho is called upon to ad-
minister a vigoroiib "kick" oven if done
at the exponso of the most elevating
portion of our community.
From tho work done this first week
there Is no doubt but what the teachers
will i eceivu excellent benefit from this
Uie best of summer normals held in
this county for many years.
Good Reading for July.
With the exception of the noted
world's fair number of The Cosmopo
