Goorgo II. Ovoring of Rod Cloud
On next Sunday, August 17th, will
occur the dedication of tho beautiful
now Methodist Episcopal church
erected in our city. This is an occa
sion which should eugago tho careful
thought and consideration of ovory
citi'on of Rod Cloud. About two
years ago this enterprise was undor
takou by tho congregation of Metho
dist people of this city and in building
tho church they have endeavored not
only to provide a suitablo place of
worship for their own congregation,
but have erected a church which is an
ornament to the city and will till a
long needed want of Red Cloud as a
place for public gatherings of diU'or
It lias cost something over 88000 to
give to the public this church. At tho
prosout time the load is being carriod
by u few citizens who had tho courage
aud public spirit to take hold of the
matter, advauco the fuuds aud carry
forward tho ontorpriso, and it is uow
up to our poople as citizens to deter
miuo whether or not tho debt of this
church shall bo lifted aud Rod Cloud
havo frco of debt this long uoedod,
well furnished and commodious
Every citizen of Red Cloud should
fool tiiat ho has an interest in this
church building, for indeed this is a
fact, and ovory citizen owes it to him
self, to his children aud to this town
to bo present on dedication day to
assist in a substantial way to raise the
funds necessary to pay fie debt re
maiuing against this church. There
is not a property owner in tho town
but what this church will enhance the
value of his real estate, and the
church building is one Unit, all can
point to with prido, and it will cer
tainly lio a comfort to know that one
has assisted with his money in build
ing and giving to tho city of Red
Cloud a church building which is
surely a thing of beauty and a joy for
ever. It is hoped that tho citizons will
turn out in mass, go down into their
pockets and pay ovory dollar againt
this church building, and if ovory
citizou will do his duty aud pay his
just proportion, tho outstanding
indobtoduoss cau bo easily paid aud
wo will do ourselves an honor as citi
zens aud will have a church that is
not only a crodlt to us but will cer
tainly stand as a credit to our child
ren who will follow us.
