The Pioneer Generali Merchandise Firm
of Red Cloud, Miner Bros.
Today twenty years ago was prob
ably not much observed as April-fool-day
in this city on account of the fact
that tho inhabitant were fow in num
ber and had something else to think of
besides fooling their friends, but this
day of all others brings back pleasant
memories to tho pioneer general mer
chandise firm of Miner Bros., for it
was on this day twenty years ago that
they made their first advent in busi
ness in what was then the little village
of Red Cloud. At that time no railroad
was built but the Kbd Cloud Chief
Was largely takon up with a discussion
in regard to a proposition from tho B.
A M. to vole bonds for that company.
On account of there being no railroad
nearer than Hastings the goods pur
chased by Miner Bros, were hauled in
wagons to this placo. They ocoupied
at their commencement of business a
frame store building on tho site of
whore their large brick building In to
day, and can look back with prido to
thoir bumblo beginning and the success
which thoy have made from that time
to the present. Very fow if any of
those who were ( ngaged in business at
that time remain, and the fow that aro
horo are not engaged in nctivu business.
Their business has grown to such pro
portions that tho brick building built
Inter is inadequate for its needs, and a
largo brick addition is at tho presont
timo in cotirso of construction. The
Chief hopes that thoy may have many
batiDV returns of All-fool's-day, and
that thoir business and tho dimensions
of their building will constantly increase.
Death Of W. E. Jackson.
W. E. Jackson an old and respected

ienn war from Its beginning to 11 ona

townsman J. L. Miner. Ho went with
expect him to forever after hold his
tonqno and admit that ho has mado a
misstatement of the facts in the caso.

ing to underrate its contemporaries,
nor does it nllow Us representatives to
do so and wo do not wish othois to
sneak around nnd do this thing.

Perhaps it would be a good thing if
the authorities would put a stop to the
shooting of fire arms in the city limits,
and especially so by boys, before some
ono is killed or wounded or some seri
ous damage is done. Almost any day
boys can be seen running around our
streets shooting at sparrows, pigeons,
and even stray dogs and cats, and
who do not care which way they shoot,
and if a house or barn or anything else
is in range it generally gets the bullet
intended for something else. There is
plonty of room and plenty of birds out
Bide the city limits to practice target
shooting and that is tho proper place
for thorn. Tho city ordinance provides
a heavy tine for tho dischargo of fire
arms within the city limits and per
haps it would be a good idea to make
an oxamplo of seme ono to learn other
offenders n lesson.
