KKD CLOUD, NEBRASKA, JAN. 12, 1900,
Incidents of Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to Think About on
Account of Their Littleness
All kinds of NowJYear's resolutions
wore inado on the beginning )ftho
year and it a snruco of much amuse
ment to see the resolvers in their on
doavors to llullill their solemn obliga
tions uiailu to themselves. Tho fellow
who solemnly vowed ho wouldn't
smoke again can bo seen going around
chewing the cod of an unlighted cigar.
Whether he lights it or not when ho
gets away by his loneliness or not wo
cannot say Another is tho linn who
' vowi (I and declared ho would never,
, never moie touch a dtop of anything
IVi! in nlc his In nth smell hid In

jof the new ytar Ihcy g ni'inllj turn to
one th it is considerably mlr h-d.
l Tim i IncKcn show was a dandy. '1 ho

tlieio mis going to be n chicken show.
Advertising pays in anything of that
kind. The advertising in tho present
case was very, veiy mengio. llowover
tho show whs n grand success. Now
is tho titno to subscribe. What are
you going to do about that canning
factory. Don't go to kicking it and
crying it down beforo you know what
kind of a proposition will bo submit
ted. The weather tho past weok may
bo nil right for tho average person, but
it is rather hard on the ico man and
tho coal man. Thero arc a:me fol
lows in this town who are always hunt
intra job until one is offered them.
Then tho; havo something elso to do.
Some time in tho future thoy may
tako a tumble. At least it is hoped so
rno evening wail muu rooms are
getting to be quite a resort for our
citizens. Tho members enjoy all sorts
of innocent amusoment. Tho ladies
now and then take a turn at enjoying
themselves in tho club rooms too. It
is a good thing and should bo main
tained. One of John (Jrifllth's "him"
cows got loose last Saturday and you
should havo seen tho gang on tho
corner scatter. Thero aro pome deliv
ery horses in this town which should
bo placed on tho rotiicd list and given
a liberal pension of liny and oats.
It is now time to store away surplus
toys .and arrange an exhibit of tiro
works. Tho county board aio now
tho victims of much criticism. Tho
county judge question is tho cattso of
it all The people havo begun to re
cover from the iff cot a of tho holidays
Why not havo a dog show. This
would be iutcicsting and theie would
bo no need of goiug out of town to get
oxhlbits. About every kind, size and
breed of dogs known could bo found
inside tho city limits. Tho revival
meetings closed last Friday night,
Tho church added about thirty mom
bors, mostly children, and tho revival
ists addod about 9140 to their bank roll.
This might bo termed another caso
of "boughten religious experience"
"Houghton experience" is always the
best although it is a little oxponsivo.
Why is it that Homo churches can got
money to pay a non-resident revival
1st a good salary, when they always
havo to give sociable, suppers, and
even pass around a subscription pa
pei to rniso their regular minister's
salary ! 'JHiis question is uow open for
discussion. Tho early closingnove has
struck us in shape and everything now
closes up when the twilight falls with
the exception of tho postofUco. Now
if Postmaster Hackir should decide to
closo tho postoflico at 7 p.m. matters
would bo all right. Ho should not bo
compeHcd to keep open any longer
than anyone else. And then too, it
weald not compel tho business men
and Ierks to stay down town a couplo
of houts aftur business hours. Now,
if tho worthy postmaster wants to
do a good dead which will make every
ouo feel gout! (?) Kiwa'rd him ho will

An Enterprise Vich Might Be Built in This
City Which Would fle Beneficial
Mayor White this week received a
letter from Messrs. Hastings, Press
priou & Co , Chicago, builders of com
plete canning factories, regarding Hit
building of a canning factory at this
place. As far as location goes Itcd
Cloud is as favorably located for such
a projeot as any town in the Republi
can valley, and n canning factoiy
.votild undoubtedly bo a good thing.
Some of the benelits to bo derived
finm such an institution, as stated ty

away fot money, while ue ale now
.sending our mi.iicy away for canned
goods, and thmeby doptiving the peo
ple of cash they might spend at home
Hvery farmer living within ten miles
of a canning factory has a ready cash
market for nil his sweet corn, toma
toes, apples, poaches, berries, pump
kins, Equashos, etc , much of which is
now lost for tho want of a market. It
increases tho valuo of land, as tho val
ue of land is based upon its productive
qualities or earning capacity. An aero
of good land will produco from 300 to
400 buBhels of tomatoes, at SO cents
per busb-vl, or 860 to 180 per cere. The
usual prico paid by individual factoi ies
is 20 cents per bushel, but whon pack
ed on the Toll Co-oporativo system tho
prico is increased to 30 cents per bush
el. Stock in a canniug factory will
pay a dividend of from ten to fifty
per cent on the capital invested, as
one-half cent a can toll is sot aside to
pay dividonds on tho capital stock, and
cannot bo used for any other purpose
So if a factory packs tho small amount
of 500,000 cans at one-half a cent toll
per can it will amount to 12,1)00, or
25 per cent on 910,000, which is much
in exc ss of thu costof a complete can
ning factory. Tho incroaso in the
valuo of proporty, and increased bene
lits derived therefrom, would exceed
tire cost of tho factory many times.
Tho only question is could our citizens
bo induced to subscribe tho necessary
stock for the erection of such a fac
tory. As yet no delinito plan has been
advanced by the builders, and until
a proposition is submitted that will in
sure the building, maintaining anil op
erating of suuh a factory nothing will
probably bo done, but should the mat
ter bo bi ought before tho people in a
manner that will insure tho building
and operating of tho factory theiois
no doubt that tho necessary stock can
bo sold. Our pcoplo havo mouoy to
invest in homo enterprises whoto tho
money will bo a safo and sound invest
ment but otherwiso tho people will
have nothing to do with tho project.

The Chicken Show.
Tho chicken show which was held in
this city this week whs a success far
ahead of the anticipations of thu pio
joctorsof tho show. Tho exhibit was
as lino as any that could bo seen at a
state fair, and somo of tho poultry on
exhibit resembled ostriches more than
chickens if judged by size. There
wore in all forty-six exhibitors, one
hundred and thirty entries made, and
four hundred and sixteen birds on ex
hibition. Tho scoring was dono by an
expert judge, and his judging was crit
icised by some who had hints disquali
fied, but ho knew his business and
could toll a blooded chicken whon he
saw it. We had intended publishinga
completo list of tho exhibitors, together
with the kinds of fowls exhibited by
them nnd tho pri.es as awarded, but
were unablo to get tho secretary's en
try book in time. Tho managors aro
highly elated over tho success that
has crowned their first ellottof hav
