for thrco or four secretaries, tho money
with which to pay tho salaries to come

Governor and his follow board mora

bnrbors against tho loading down ol nn

Tho work of reformation in tho city
of Red Cloud has commenced. One of
our citizons mauo n snort specen ni
one of our churches Inst Sunday night
which resulted in tho calling of a moot
ing at tbo olllco of J. M. Chaflin on
Monday for tho purposo of organizing
an nuti-snloon nnd nntl-gumbling,
league. Tho mooting was held as
called and n committee of livo was
chosen to proparo a constitution nnd
by-laws, consisting of Hovs. Doan,
Harncs, Hussong and Edson, and J. M.
Chaflin as a member from tbo citizons.
Tho objoct of tho organization as stat
ed in short talks by thoso presont was
to abate saloons, gambling houses, slot
machines, aud other things which to
tho organization are obnoxious from n
moral standpoint. Whilo tho Ioaguo
oxpecta to suppiess gambling iu tho
city, thoy do not expect to do much
with tbo saloons which aro nt present
licensed in our eity, but their hopes
are that by tho beginning of tho next
municipal year they will bo orgauizod
strong enough to prevent the issuing
of Hconso to a saloon in the city. A
committee to investigate nnd secure
evidence against saloons, gambliug
houses, etc , wns nlso appointed, but

league nro snnguiuo as to the great

In somo places peddlers will stop, and
if they find n woman alone, they will
compel her to trade with them, if she

For my part I have- decided to do no
mora trading with peddlers; nnd if
others wish to patronize them let them
bo the ones to entertain them, ns they
can not frighten mo into doing cither.

Kcd Cloud Is, in our opinion, tho
host town in southern Nebraska, and
the prospects ahead of it for the next
year or two aro certainly encouraging
ifourpeoplo will only work together
for tho upbuilding of this city. Hut
this can only bo done by united nnd
harmonious notion, thcrcforo we nto
opposed to tho stirring up of n faction
al fight at this tlnio. During tbo past
few years Ked Cloud has prospered
and the stigma of former times has
boon almost completely orascd, and
Ked Cleud'u prospects aro at present
brighter than nt nny time in tho city's
history. Ono backwnrd stop now or
one move to causo dissension and strife
among our citizons, when entlro unity
of notion is neccssaty, might serve to
set our city back for a period of livo or
ten years. Nothing hurts a city worse
than strifo among its citizens. A city
the sizo of Ked Cloud can very soon
get a reputation for working together
for anything thnt will assist in tho up
buildiug of tho city, or they can very
soon got a reputation of being com
posed of twoclotnonts, ono of which is
always opposed to anything tho other
proposes. Now, which ouo of theso
reputations docs this city want? Wo
prefer tho former. We bolievu that
the law bhould bo obeyed, but wo do
not bolievoa factional fight will enforce
a law or better n community, or at
least it never has this ono. It nnyouo
knows of tho existouco of nn illegal or
unlawful business being carried on it
is his duty as u law abiding citizou
to enter complaiut and havo tho city
authorities stop it, nnd wo nro willing
to venture tho assertion tliat it will bo
stopped iu n hurry under tho present
administration, but u man who knows
or imagines ho knows of existing un
lawful business and uses such knowl
edge or supposed knowledge for the
solo purposo of creating dissatisfaction
and strifo iu u poaceablo community
is dosorviug of only tho condemnation
of every citizen nnd should bo sat
down on by everyone who has tbo best
interests of tho city nt henrt. Law
nnd order nro bouud to be respected,
but dissatisfaction and strifo caused
by n factijunl tight, know no law
and order, aud havo only for their
law "might makes right." Look be

No Torture Equal to the
Itching and Burning of
This Fearful Disease.
Not much attention is ofton paid to the
first symptoms of Eczema, but it ta not long
boforo the littlo redness begins to Itch and
burn. This is but tho beginning, and will
lead to suffering and torture almost unen
durable It Is n common mistake to. regard
roughness and redness of the skin, as
merely a local irritation ; it is but an indica
tion of a humor in tho blood of terrible
Eczema 'Which is more than skin-deep, and can not bo reached by local appli
cations of ointments, salves, etc., applied to the surface. The disease itself,
tho real causo of the troublo, is in the blood, although all suffering Is produced
through the skin ; the only way to reach tho disease, therefore, is through
Mr. Phil T. Jones, of Mlrersville, Ind., writes:
"I had Ecsoma thirty years, and after a great deal
of treatment my leg was so rnw and sore that it gave me
eonstant pain. It finally broko into a running sore, and
began to spread nnd grow worso. For tho past flvo or
six years I have suffered untold agony nnd had given up
all hope of ever boing free from tho disease, ns I havo
been treated by somo of the best physicians nnd have
taken many blood medloines, all in vain. With littlo
faith left I began to tako S. S. 8., and it apparently
made the Eczema worse, but I know that this was tho
way tho remedy got rid of the poison. Continuing
S. S. 8., tho sore healed up entirely, the skin became
olear and smooth, and I was cured perfectly."
Eczema is an obstinate disease and can not bo cured by a remedy which U
only a tonic. Swift's Specific
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
Is superior to other blood remedies becauso it cures diseases whleh they on
not reach. It goes to the bottom to tho cause of the disease and will oar
the worst case of Eeiema, no matter what other treatment has failed. It is
the only blood remedy guaranteed to bo free from potash, mereary or any
other mineral, and never fails to ouro Eecema, Scrofula, Contagious Blood
Poison, Cancer, Tetter, Rheumatism, Open Sores, Ulcers, Boils, ete. Insist
