G. V. ARGABRIGHT.
In G. V. ArR-ibriglit, the portrait
painter, lied Cloud had an artist of
whom she may wull bo proud. Visitors
from th laige cities express wonder
and surpriso that n city tho si.u of Ited
Cloud in able to boast of a studio of
tine art which is tint equal of anything
tf its kind in thi! stato. Tho profo.vsor'a
work in paitel is ackmiwledgud by ait
erilii'N to bo uiisurp.istud by anything
produced in the west, and Ins cnu
vasses are to be found in tho homes of
prominent people as far east as the
president's homo, south to tho Gulf and
west to the Paul tic const. Mr. Arga
hrighl's specialty is portrait painting,
but a visit to his reception rooms in
tho Damorolt Ulock will be a revelation
to those who lovo art in tho portrayal
of fancy oupids and rones, numarous
paintings of which adorn tho walls,
llis work is nut of the mere uiechani
cal sort that charactori7.es the work
turnod out by tho general run of artists
but happily blends the etTocts desired
into true and natural likenesses.
This reliable and progressive gentle
man controls a lucrative trade among
tho residents of Webster aud ad
joining counties. His methods of
doing business meet with tho approval
of his customers. Thrift and enter
priso have ever characterized his
actions in tho business world ol lied

of overy description, machinery,
wagons and spring vehicles of overy
character and laakes a specialty of
Deering harvesters aud mowers. Any

There Is a dlseas prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep

it heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance the kldney-polsoned blood will attack
the vital organs, er the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the rlchns of the blood the albumen
leaks out and the sufferer has BrlgiK's
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.

RED CLOUD MONUMENTAL WKS.
The, Ked Cloud Monumental Wotks,
Overing Hros. & Co , proprietors, dates
ils history from IS'.H!, with but tvo
men connected with it, ono in the shop
aud one on tho road. During this timo
it has steadily grown until today ii
gives employment to thirteen men, six
in iho shop and seven representing it
in tho Hold. This business was started
liko many others on a very small cap
ital No ne ovor dreamed of tho mag
nitude of the business today when they
saw Mr. K. J. Gvoring drivo into Red
Cloud from Hox Uutto csutity in n
covered wagon, surrounded by his
family of thrco ahildren. Never was
tho adage "from little acorns big oaks
grew" moro fully oxompliiied than in
this instance. Their business at this
time reaches into tho thousands of dol
bus annually, as they buy their stonk
in car lots and frequently ship in the
same manner. Much of the line-it
work to be seen in the Ked Cloud com
etery is turned out from this house, us
well as that of many of the western
ceintteries. No inferior work leaves
their .shops as their policy is to giw
good material aud workmanship at
reasonable prices 'I his they are
enabled to do by buying in wholesale
quantities and supplying tho trade in
tho sumo manner. No matter what
design you want jour ideas can be
carried out as tkis company carries
tho largest stock of goods in tho rnngb
of nay house in tho state. I'heii
pay roll amounts on tho average to
WOO 00 por month and every cent i
spent in Rod Cloud. Almost overy
dollar of this monoy is gathored from
outside torritory, thus developing n
resource not obtainable by any other
branch of merchandise.
