Encountered a ShotSUin,
Two of Red Cloud's gay young sports
hired a livery team Tuesday evening
to go out southwest and see a couple
of young ladies. They saw the girls,
all right, but the father of one the
girls didn't like the company his
daughter was keeping and took out
after them on horseback, armed with
a shot gun. By taking a circuitous
route and doing some tall walking the
boys got into town by midnight.
The work on the big ditch at the
water plant is progressing slowly.
On Wednesday they began digging an
8-foot well about half way between
the south well and the old man-hole
to the northeast. The supply of wa
ter has already been increased 50 per
cent and when the work is completed
it is hoped to have it doubled. We
still believe the best system would
have been to have followed out the
plan suggested by Joe Hums namely
a chain of wells running northward
across the creek, but this would have
cost a great deal more money than
the city cared to expend, so the scheme
was abandoned. There is no question
but the city water, at the present
time, is almost unfit for drinking pur
poses, but it can not bo helped until
tho work Is completed.
