Incidents oi Every D.iy Lilt Which Vciy
Few People Stop to Think About on
Account of Their Littleness
The pn liabilities aro that (oino n(
the young people of tho town will pe
tition tho now mayor and council to
carpet tho .stcpsaud porch of the school
house and other public places. Itifthi
present con lition they aro very incon
venient to sit on those damp evenings.
The voting people certainly dosorvo
some consideration from the new coun
cil. Wo would reeoinnieud that they
either carpet these places or pass a cur
few oidiuauce. And wouldn't a cur
few ordinance bo a hot thing in this
town. We (inclining nil of us reform
ers) don't caro what happens to tho
young folks, just so tho older ones
can't put in their time inn saloon.
Take care of tho old 'uns. Tho young
'tins can take care of themselves. -For
feelings that are hard, ami ways that
aro vain these reform ideas at o pecul
iar. We should think that these re
form ideas should boitauglittho young
people instead of trying to push them
down tno throat of old people. Prob
ably if this was done the next genera
tion would havo less to tight about.

times its so. Last Sunday a non-resident
temperanco lecturer, wo under
stand asserted that .'IJ, 000 gallons of
whiskey was consumed! in Red Cloud
in a year Wo don't know whoro tho
ligurcs como from but maybo they aro
all right. Thoy woro given by a per
son who Is of tho continued belief that
"Thou shalt not lie." But wo think
tho gentleman was just a little misin
formed. In fact wo think ho is just a
little inclined to gossip. That is, re
peat some things which lie hears which
ho hadn't ought to.- iW.OOO gallons of
whiskey means Jl.'.'OO.OOO drinks.
About s.ooo di inks for every day in tho
year This ni"ans about $100 per day
