You can most always distinguish the man that buys his clothing of us by the swagger,
stylish ensemble of his garments.
It's one thing to wear clothes and another thing to wear clothes that fit.
You see both kinds on the street every day. Between the kind of clothing that's thrown
together and the kind that's tailor ready made, the kind we r.ell, there's a wide difference.
The money saved on the first kind is like what the old Arab said about buying cheap meat,
that "When it boils you'll smell what you have saved." Our
Kuppenheimer Clothing Guaranteed !
is the clothing you are looking for. During June we propose to sell clothing if price will
induce you to buy. We are offering a great suit in
BOYS' COAT, PANTS AND VEST AT S2.SO.
Red Cloud is going to celebrate the 4th of July. You can't celebrate properly without one
of our Suits, Fancy Shirts, Nobby Hat, and Stylish Enamel Shoes. Remember the Dutchess
Trousers. 50c a rip, 10c a button.

The Kansas anti-trust law hns boon
declared valid by tho supremo court of
that stato. Tho decision was rendered
in a suit instituted by independent
grain doalors against tho Kansas Grain
l)nlers' Association. Tho law was
paused by tho populist legislature of
1897, and this is tho tirst decision over
rendered by tho supremo court of that
Mate relativo to tho validity of the law.
Kitnor U. Ovorman, tho nomineo of
tho republican convention for county
attorney, received a deserved recogni
tion of his vigorous efforts in tho pros
ecution of tho criminal cases which
camo under his jurisdiction. Mr. Over
man had been subJctod to much criti
cism because of tho expense to which
tho county had been put in tho prose
cuiinn of the Keating case, lint the
outcome of tliN trial wits a vindication
in itulf. Mr. Ovorman deserves and
should receive tho support of every
loyal ic publican in tho county. There
can be no iuestinu of his ability, and
bis loyalty to the truly has b.ien dem
onstrated on moro than one occasion.
NiNt Wednesday, Juno 18, the r
publican state convention will meet at
Lincoln for the purpose of nominating
Mite oilicers. We, In conjunction with
the test of tho Republicans of the
Fifth congressional district, think that
our district is untitled to some repre
sentation on tho sttte ticket. Wo
claim that the Fifth district has done
its share, and more, too, to wrest the
state from the rule of populism and
fusion ard put it in tho republican
volumn. The Fifth asks but one con
cession from tho republican statu con
vention, and that is the nomination of
J. 1'. A. Hlnck of Bloomington for the
otllco of governor. Mr. Hlaek is emi
nently qualilled for tho ollico, and
would handle the executive affairs of
the stato with dignity and justice. No
man can truthfully say one word
against him. Ho is one of the early
pioneers of Webster county, locating
here in tho oarly '70s, and was admit
ted to the bar in this county in 1878,
afterward moving to Hlooinington,
where he has since resided. Already
Mr. Hlaek has a strong following, not
only in tho Fifth district, but nil over
the state, and tho entire Fifth district
should, and undoubtedly will, go for
him as a unit, and could do no bettor.
Should Mr. Hlaek secure thu nomina
tion, -o predict not only his electiou
next November, but something which
has uot occurred iu years the election

Some Rather Doubtful Yarns Spun by Two
of Our Oldest Settlers.
On a pleasant ovoning not long ago
two or our aged citizens regaled n gap
ing crowd of interested listeners with
talus of tho oarly days that wott.d make
a tenderfoot's hair stand on ond, and
seems almost a miracle that these two
men are alivo to relate tho story of
ot their experiences in the early days
of what then was part ot the territory
of Ijotiixiana. but is now the state of
Away back in the summer of 1812
two young men deserted trom the
American army, stationed at Fort Ni
agara, and started westwatd on n jour
ney of exploration After nearly n
year of wandering they reached a point
on the Missouri tiver not far from
where tho city of St. .Joseph now
stands. Failing in thuir endeavors to
oko out a livelihood at tho small trad
ing post located there, thoy determined
to push on westward.
Kirly in June, 18111, theso footsoro
and weary lads espied smoko curling
from tho tepees of an Indian villago,
and as thoy had eaten nothing for four
days save a few scattering blades of
buffalo grass, thoy decided to throw
themselves upon tho mercy of tho sav
ages Imagino their surprise and do
light upon discovering that tho occu
pant of tho largost tont was none other
than Forked Lightning, chief of tho
Sioux, whose fanio had already spread
to tho east and. whoso great-grandson,
tho bloodthirsty Ked Cloud, afterward
became famous through tho city of Red
Cloud being named for him. Tho weary
wanderers woro hospitably received,
as thoy woro the tirst whilo men ever
soon by the Indians in this part of tho
country. Upon boiug pressed to ro
main over night tho young mon decided
they could do no belter (tho Boys'
Homo had not been built at that time),
and accepted tho chief's hospitality.
During tho evening they entertained

discovered thai lliey had failed to se

in opening banks a dark lantern and
a can of nitni-glycerin. Nothing damn

mined to make thu effort, and, procur
ing a guide, they started for tho scone
of their prospeoiivc labors Upon ar
riving at a polct about half a mile
north of Red Cloud they woro greatly
chagrined to dtscovi r that tho bank
thoy had traveled so far to open was
nothing but a clay-b.iuk, 'ho same ono
that has boon utilized lui years by tho
I.udlows as a source of supply for their

a rime lliey finally reached a point
noar wliero Asa Giirney now lives. At
tills place they encountered glacier ice,
a relic of prehistoric ages. They pitched
their camp near tho odgo of tho ice and
the two bold explorers started forth in
'enroll of food. They failed to take
proper noto of their surroundings, and
In a very short timo thoy discovered
that they woro lost iu tho dense jungles
which still abound in that vicinity.
Thoy wandered around for many days
and finally succeeded in making their
way back to camp, tho only thing iu
tho nnturo of food which thoy had pro
cured being ono lono jiick rabbit and
a fow buffalo beans, which latter thoy
had mistaken lor olivess. When
they reached camp they were alarmed
at being able to tind no trace of their
cook, aud investigation soon revealed
tho fact that sho had been devoured by
a pack of those wild Indian hogs which
infested this country at that timo. Tho
sad fato of their cook determined the
explorers to hit tho back track f .r
civilization, but tltey soon found this
was no easy task, and it was many
years boforu they again saw tho Re
publican river. Iu searching for tho
former camping ground of their friend
Forked Lightning thoy camo upon
what they at first took to be a fort.
This turned out to bo the stockade
built by Silas Garbor and his little
band of pioneers as a protection against
tho Indians. Foiked Lightning had
long since passed to tho happy hunting
grounds, and Red Cloud, who was iu
command of the braves, wits making
life iniser.iblo fir tho eltici.s.
It took bin a short timo for Hently
and Cians to patch up a treaty of
peace with the Indians, their forinoi
friendship foi Red Cloud's great urand
father, which had become traditional
with tho tribe, heiug i great help in
this direction. Shortly afterward 'ho
tirst storo was established in Red

one. The foregoing aro but a few of the

It ii a great affliction for a woman to
have ner face disfigured by pimples or
any form of eruptive disease. It makes
her morbid and sensitive, and robs her
of social enjoyment. Disfiguring erup
tions are caused by impure blood, and
are entirely cured by the great blood
purifying medicine Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. It removes from the
blood the poisonous impurities which
cause disease. It perfectly and perman
ently cures scrofulous sores, eczema,
tetter, boils, pimples and other eruptive
diseases which are caused by the blood's
impurity. It increases the action of
the blood-making glands und thus in
creases the supply of pure rich blood,
