"The ouly paper in Chicago that
dares piinl the news." This very sug
gestive sentence adorns each side of tho
heading of the Chicago Inter Ocean,
one the gteatest papers in the world.
The cause for the above is brought by
tho exposure of rottenness of Chicago's
mayor, Cat let Harrison nud tho tough
element who do his dirty work, by this
papers. A great man country weekly
paper are in the same tix as the Inter
Ocean designates the rest of tho great
papers of Chicago. They dare not say
this, or that for fear of n loss of patron
ago. Tho Inter Ocean has taken tho
right stnud nnd will win because tho
botttor olemuul will stand by it. A
little more nerve on tho part of papers
m towns tho size of Bed Cloud would
make them recoivo more respect. Tu.
day is Good Friday, and the question
arisosdld you get your "Inters" phuu

surlns will do just as well. Thero ate
no sigtis ot tho times or old sayiugs
which ctitnuy liguro In this country.

Kaster is supposed to havo originated

the eating of red eggs or the wearing of

n good explanation why theso two ar
ticles nro so very essential to tho Easter
of this period of tho world wo would bo
glad to havo it. Easter bonnets aro
made principally to ticklo tho women
and Easter eggs aro mndo principally
to ticklo tho "kids." At present things
have advnnced to such n stnto that
Easter gowns nro also in order. In tho
course of n fow years more wo may ex
pect to hear of Easier celebrations that
will out-class tho Fourth of July.
Backward, turn backward, oh time in

long lost to light; when people dressed
comely and not "all for show," and red
eggs and bonnets wero uot ull the go.
Iho Nation has received a letter from
our red whiskered friend Mr. Bent
ley who is basking in tho buushine
and electric lights of Hot Sorincs,
Arkansas. Mr B. does not want any
improvements in his homo town for ho
had got the "tin" to go .vhero he can
wnlk under the glare of electric light J
and taku baths for "rheumatism" an 1
see peoplo killed as a pastime, while
tho rest of the fellows who come nt
his bidding have to bo content to
shiver ln'Bed Cloud with no hnrd coal
in their bins. Tho prediction of that
loproductlou of Mathew B's hat which
wo made two weeks ago is liable to
eonio truo as thoro Is vory little doubt
but that tho rookery on tho corner will
in the ucar future be torn dowu. Tho
mayor nnd city couucil have done a big
thing for tho good of our people nnd
tho looks of tho city in tho passage of
oidinnnco23nnd29. Ordinnnco 28 is
"an nidinauco for tho removal or de
struction of buildings damaged by lire
or decay." Ordinnnco 20 is "an ordiu
anco providing for eafo approaches, on
tiances and exits to churches, onora
houses, halls, lodge rooms and public
I buildings." Ordiuanco 28 makes it al
most cei tain that tho eyesore, liro tap

Inter Ocenn. Tho Chief tins not in the
