The" deceased was tho wifo of A. II.
King aud had resided in this county
for many years. Sho was over seventy
vears of oho nnd tho mother of four
sons and two daughters. Sho was un
estimable lady and had many friends
who will unite in oxtondlng sympathy
to tho bereaved family. Tho funeral
was hold at her late residence on Thurs
day. Wo understand that tho powers that
presido over tho B. & M, havo decided
to remove a portion of tho round houso
at this placo to Oxford, reducing the
houso hero to four stalls. Thoy have
our permission to tako tho whole
bloomin' brick pilo at onco. What's
tho uso of taking it piecemeal? If
thoy don't like Red Cloud why don't
tboy mako a clean sweop and tako all
their belongings and got out? Maybo
oftor tho last vestago of their property
has disappeared wo can got a road to
como in which will appreciate us.
Red Cloud is not tho only town that
gets flimilammod by advertising fakirs
as tho following shows: "Wymore
business men aro enjoying tho pleasant
pastime of kicking themselves thcso
days for being so badly taken in by a
chap named Williams in December last
who worked tho 'combination sales'
racket on them to a finish, and at tho
same timo fleeced them out of 175 or
