Rocky Road to Red Cloud.
Considerable hns been said by our

and grade this road. While this piece
of road is oul a little over a mile in
length itbas lout more business to thu
merchants of Bed Cloud than atl the
other roads leading into town, and has
driven lote of Bed Cloud's good cus
tomers to Lebanon, Ksbixi, aud ortior
Kansas points to do tberv trading and

ho that people living south of thu
river cun bo sure of starting to town
and gutting hero without breaking a
vehicle or kilting a luuwe. No matter
bow small the rain, at phicos ia the
road tho water will form a mud hale
and stand until enough hot sua comes
to dry it up, and tlion leave the road
so full of ruts and shuck holes Hint
It is dangerous hi cross them with a
light rig or a loaded wugon. During
the past month this road hiw been

our merchants see that it is fixed thu
better it will bo for them.

Some comment has boon made In re
gard to tho fact that a roturn of only
fourteen acres of alfalfa in cultivaUon
in this county has been mado and so it
appears that way In the abstract of
assessment. The fact of tho case is
that thore is very likely from 1,500 u
2,000 acres planted in alfalfa In the
county, but tho assessors iu making up
their books have most likely put it
dowu as meadow. Tho number of
aoros in cultivation In potatoos is giv

thai tho acreage is away over tltBt.
