of Old Soldiers
The seventeenth annual reunion of
thu Nebraska and Kansas Interstate
Kuuuion Association opened Monday
morning under auspicious circum
stances. Tin' weather was cool and
the sky clear.
Hy noon on .Monday most of the
tents had been erected for the accom
modation of the ollleials and the vete
rans, while the tents and caravans of
the concessionaries were mostly in
place long before that time.
At 10:30 a. m. after a musical reci
tal by the band Comrade Davidson of
Franklin was introduced and for half
an hour entertained the crowd with
stories of the war and giving expres
sion to optimistic thoughts with re
rani to the future of our country.

it was a reunion of veterans of the patriotic, eloquent and touching ad
civil war was the arrival of Captain dress. He told of the bright as well
Hagan's martial band from Guide as the dark side of army life and paid
itock. Captain Hagan brought with ' a glowing tribute to the wives and
him a fife and drum corps of eleven mothers, the daughters and sweet
pieces, besides himself. The other hearts of the boys in blue,

R. C. began
balloon ascension at 2:30, but owing
to the high wind this was postponed
until 7:30, when a successful ascension
and parachute drop was made.
The manager of Rrown's Tennessee
"Ministrels became offended at a fan
cied slight on the part of the reunion
eommltteeiand at 0 o'clock pulled up
btakes and went west. However the
vacancy was filled Tuesday morning
hy Helm's Vaudeville Company.
The biggest attraction in the line of
amusements was "Lucky Hill" New
ton's dog and pony show, which visit
ed Red Cloud early this year, and re
turned for the reunion.
After the balloon abcenbion Monday
evening, quite a large percentage of
the crowd adjourned to the court
house park to listen to the program
arranged for that night.
Hagan's Martial Hand opened the
program with a few selections, and
Chairman E. .1. Overing, Jr.. then in
troduced Attorney .Joseph C. Saylor,
who delivered an oration upon "The
Evolution of the Republic." Attor
ney Fred Maurer spoke upon "The
Soldier as a Citizen," and was follow-
ill by Judge Albert H. ICeeney, who
gave, some interesting and amusing
rem'miseenes of the Spanish-American
war. Judge ICeeney. while himself a
very young man, could not resist the
temptation to call the veterans of '01
'05 by the endearing term of "boys."
He read a little poem about "The
Honolulu Flea," and was interrupted
by Joe Warren, who informed him
that during the civil war those same
ileus were culled "gray-backs."
Judge Keeney was followed by
President Dietrick, of the Wed Cloud
llusiness College, who recited Captain
.liw.l f'lMiivfui-iVs imthet.lt! noelll. "The

Veteran and His Grandson," which
was highly appreciated by those pres

Mrs. Morgan of Alma then gave a
brilliant and eloquent address on the
work and results of the W. R. C.
Since this auxiliary to the G. A. R.
was orgonized sonie 25 years ago, it
has grown from a membership of 40
to 100,000. She advocated that here
after at all reunions a half day be
given on the program to the boys and
girls, that patriotic intelligence and
good citizenship might be fostered.
Thursday's programme was the best
of the week. Gov. Sheldon arrived
Wednesday evening and attended the
cunnflre. Norris Rrown arrived on
13 Thursday morning. He was escort
ed to the grounds by Hagan's Martial
band. Mr. Rrown's address impressed
the crowd very favorably.
tiearge L. Sheldon of Nehawka, re
publican candidate for governor,
came in Wednesday evening. He de
livered an address Thursday afternoon
which placed him high in the estima
tion of those who heard him. Mr.
Sheldon was not known here prior to
the convention, but there is not a per
son in lied Cloud who had the pleas
ure of shaking hands with him that
will not acknowledge that he is a rev
elation to the politicians. He is slow
of speech and slow of action, but every
word and every movement counts.
I' KID AY.
Friday was Old Settlers' day, and it
was expected that A. C. Shallenberger,
fusion candidate for governor, would
be present to address the crowd.
Everyone was disappointed when a
teleirram was received from Mr. Shal
lenberger Friday evening announcing
his inability to be present.
.1. S. Gilliam. I. H. Rlackledgo and

We understand that N. D. Illings-'
worth has just received another ton
of the Medical Chemical Co.'s Hog"
Powders, of which he has already sold
six tons in Red Cloud and vieinitjv
within the past two months. Itseems
to be giving wonderful satisfaction
Among the hundreds of hog raisers
who are using the medicine are the
following, who recommend it very
highly, many of whom claim it is the
best remedy they ever used, as it not
only expels all kinds of worms, but
also tones up the entire system of
hogs, horses and cattle, makes them
thrive in a miraculous manner and
sharpens up their appetites. Many of
them claim if fed according to direc
tions it will prove to be worth to any
stock raiser SI. 00 per pound and it
only costs 10 cents a pound. Many
claim it is the best remedy ever used
for chickens. Some of the farmers
who are using this medicine are:
