Ho Is running for may or at tlio head of a ticket without imnio or party it is not republican, not pop ulist, no; citizens, not domocrut it simply has a good tail to bolster up tho head.

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 citizen of this city passed quietly away from this earth on last Friday, March l 25th. at his late rcsidonco In tho south- $j west part of town, aged 71 yoars and 3 days old. Ho was born in tho state of Ohio on March 23, 1827. Ho sorted in tho Mex- ienn war from Its beginning to 11 ona and was married shortly utter to miss Julia A. Minor, hlstor of our follow 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. Tine Chief is not In tho habit of try 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. m m Real Estate Transfers , Real bstato transfers for the week ending March 30, 1806, furnsihed by tho Fort Abstract Co., L. 11.

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.
