Thus cried the hair. And a
kind neighbor came to the res
cue with a bottle of Ayer's
Hair Vigor. The hair was
saved! In gratitude, it grew
long and heavy, and with all
the deep, rich color of early
life. Sold in all parts of the
world for sixty years.

Tuesday, August 8, 1ms been oulnrgud
on such a scale of liberality as to inako
it next to imposiblo to depict its real
magnitude. Besides enormous addi
tions to the circus proper, tho parado
has increased and is now ono of tho
linest ever seen with this meritorious
organization. In tho arenic display
are brought together an assembly of
the most famous acrobats, gymnasts
riders, equilibrists, contortionists,
aerial performers, dancors, fuumakors
and sensational specialists in tho
world Most of these artists made
thoir llrst appearanco in this country
with tho grout Campbell Brothors
consolidated shows. Foremost among
these celebrities nro tho ''Flying Lo
Van," "The Mizuno troup of Jnps,"
Bishop Bros , doublo somersault
leapers; Nellie Ryland, champion
bareback rider of tho world; Cossack
Rough Ridors, in daring feats of
horsemanship; the gieat hippodrome
races and other highly sensational acts
too numerous to mention.
Among tho traided animal features
mo a herd of performing elephants,
educated horses and ponies, high
jumping dogs and clown mules. Tho
menagerie annex contains tho most
complete, exclusive and valuablo col
lection of wild animals from all parts
of tho world.
Tho street parado will leave tho
show grounds at 10 o'clock. Perform
ance at 2 and 8 p. m.
Brand Army Disappointed.
The mombors of tho Grand Army
and Woman's Relief Corps aro very
much disappointed with tho memorial
window which they purchased and
had placed in tho now Methodist
church. Tho design and lettering on
the window is much smaller than the
members of theso organizations had
expected, and it can only bojsoen
from tho inside of the church. While
it is true that tho lettering on tho
window is of an inferior order, tho
same complaint can also bo made of
tho lettering on tho other memorial
windows in tho building. It is not
customary, in modern architecture, to
place designs on memorial windows
so thoy can bo seen from tho outside,
and tho tendency U to mako tho let
tering very small, though plain, so as
not to havo tho appearanco of being
in the nature of an advertisement.
While in Smith Ceutor receutlv tho
writer inspected the memorial wludows
in tho now Congregational church
Tho lettering on those windows was
smaller even than that on tho windows
of tho now M. E. church in this city.
It would undoubtedly mar tho beauty
of the wiudow to havo tho design and
lettering made larger, and It would
also tend to bring ridicule upon
the builders of tho church as well as
tho donors of tho window. While wo
do not believe the design is as well
executed as it should havo becu, to
make it larger would bo a mistake.
An Exciting Day.
There wore very exciting times in
Rod Cloud last Saturday. In tho
morning tho Omaha Commercial club,
to the number of 150, with their band
and quartet, arrived on schedule
time Tho members of tho club
called on the busiuess men, whilo tho
band and quartet discoursed music on
the street. Tho Omaha men croatod
a good impression. In tho aftornoou
a local artist gave an exhibition of
slack wiro walking, which was fol
lowed by tho appearanco of tho Chris
tian Volunteers, an organization simi
lar to tho Salvation Army. An old
bass drum, a dilapidated tambourine
and a squeaky violin playod to tho
accompaniuont of cracked voices
tortured tho pooplo who woro on tho
stroot until they woro willing to part
with thoir money to have it stopped.
W. H Thomaa for Treasurer.
Mr. W II. Thomas, ono of tho most
prosperous farmers in this section,
has announced his candidacy for tho
Republican nomination for county
treasurer. Mr. Thomas is a man of
sterling worth and undoubted busi
ness ability. Ho is an Illiuoisan by
birth, but camo to Nebraska in 187.'!,
locating near Aurora. Ho removed to
this county about fourteen years ago,
and has siuco ongagod in farming.
Ho has had considerable experience
in financial matters, having been
township troasuror for four years,
treasurer of tho school district for six
years, and is at present troasuror of
tho Rod Cloud Creamery company, a
position which requires financial
ability of a high order. Mr. Thomas
will undoubtedly hitvo strong support
in ids candidacy, especially among
tho farmers and tho business men
with whom ho has had dealings.
While it is not generally known,
Red Cloud has a first class orchestra
of six musicians which is compotont
to furnish tho best of music for any
occasion. The organization is known
as "Mercer's Orchestra" and is com
posed of tho following musicians:
M. A. Moroor, violin; Vie Manspoaker,
cornet; A. B Sollars, clariuot; T. E.
McCarl, trombone; Horaco Mcintosh,
drums and cymbals; Mrs J. D. Crans,
pianist. With such tin array of talent
banded together thoro is no oxcuso
for importing an orchestra from some
othor town to play for dances and like
entertainments. Support tho homo
organization, and some day enough
patriotic musicians may bo gathored
together to give us a good baud.
