Rushton Home Burned.
Joshua Rushton, living southeast of
Red Cloud, had tho misfortuno to
loso his homo and household goods
Tuesday aftoruoon iu a llro which is
supposod to havo originated from a
defective fluo. Neighbors wont to
tho aid of Mr. Rushton, but tho llro
had gainod such headway that tho
building aud its contents wero do
stroyod. Mr. Rushton was particular
ly unfortunate in having allowed his
insurance to lapso a couple of weeks
previous, having intended to attend to
tho matter upon his first trip to town.
Tho loss is total.
The first of the week somoono went
to Al SInby's homo on Seward street
and deliberately wa'kod (or drove)
away with a i!00 pound hog which tio
had in a pen in his back yard. Mr.
Slaby says it is an absolute impossibil
ity for tho hog to have made its escapo
from the pen nnussistod.
Jake Nustoin has closod Ins cigar
factory in this city, has packed up his
goods and is ready to remove to St.
Joseph, Mo., as soon as tlio revenue
collector arrives to "check him out."
Mr. Nustein has done well in Rod
Cloud, but his interests in St. Joe de
mand his attention. Ho is a good citi
.un, nnd wo nro sorry to loso him.
Many people do not understand why
the city council has fixed no definite
cost for tho proposed new electric liglit
plnnt. While tho matter has been
thoroughly investigated through cor
respondence and an approximate
estimate of cost arrived at from tho
experience of other towns similarly
situated to Rod Cloud, it was thought
beat not to go to the expense of hiring
an export to come hero, at a cost of
9100 or $150, until it was known
whether or not we would have a plant.
From tho best information obtainable,
a plant suitable for this city will cost
between $8,000 and (10,000.
