A Grand Work.
Mrs. It. Thompson was in Red Cloud
the first of the week soliciting aid for
the Joseph's Home of Kansas City, Mo.
Yew people understand the work be
ing done by this institution. The
principal object of the home is to
train mothers who are left with fami
lies of small children on their hands
so that they can earn a living and sup
port their children, thus avoiding tho
separation of families. The mother
and children are taken into the home
and taught how to make their own
living. When the mother feels that
she is able to earn a living blie goes
out into the world, and the children
arc eared for until she can make a
home for them. None of the children
are placed with families for adoption
and are thus kept together. The home
was originally located at Joplin, Mo.,
Intt since Mrs. Thompson's visit here
a year ago it has been moved to 2010
Cleveland boulevard, Kansas City, Mo.
Anna Iiaker is the matron of the home
and to her all communications should

Found Guilty of Selling Liquor Illegally
-Pearl Wauflc Acquitted -Other
Al Strohm, the former Inuvalu drug
gist, charged with selling liquor ille
gally, was found guilty on two counts.
.Judge Adams will pass sentence some
time to day.
Following the death of Wesley Wil
son, who was engaged in the drug
business at Inavule, Al Strohm took
up the business. While it was goner- J
ally known that Wilson sold liquor
illegally lie was not molested. How
ever, no sooner had Strohm begun
business than complaints began to be
heard. Strohm was finally arrested
and bound over to the district court,
gave bail and was released, but before
his ease came to trial he was again
arrested on tho same charge. In the
interim between his first and second
arrest Strohm let his temper runaway
with him and committed an assault
upon Rev. R. H. E. Hill, the pastor of
the Inavale Methodist church, which
greatly intensified the feeling against
him. For this olVenso he was arrested
and fined. ,
On tho night following Strohm's sec
ond arrest, which occurred on Wed
nesday, .tunc 27, fire was discovered
in the rear of Strohm's drug store,
which was not checked until the prin
cipal part of tho business portion of
Inuvalu hud been destroyed. The next
night the homo of Fred Stoner, one of
the complaining witnesses against
Strohm, was also destroyed by fire. At
was openly asserted at the time, by
the friends of the temperance ch-mont,
that Strohm was responsible for both
fires, while Strohm's friends were
positive in their assertions that his
enemies had started the fires and then
tried to throw suspicion upon him.
However, there seemed to be no proof
in support of either contention and no
arrests were made.
I'EAKIi WAUFI.r. ACQUITTED.
Pearl Waufle, accused of criminally
assaulting Minnie Shaw on the even
ing of September 14, 1005, at Bladen,
was acquitted by a jury in the district
court Tuesday afternoon. The trial
occupied the greater part of Monday
afternoon and Tuesday forenoon.
The story told by Minnie Shaw was
of a sensational nature, and illustrates
the folly of yo-ing girls making "pick
up" acquaintances. Miss Shaw came
down from her homo in Adams county,
six miles north of Illudcn, to attend
the reunion held there. She patron
ized the mcrrv-go-around freely, and
there became acquainted with Pearl
Waulle. According to her story, they
took a ride on tho merry-go-round,
then went for a spin in the automo.
bile, and back again for another ride
on the merry-go-round. Up to this
poiut the btories of Miss Shuw and
Waufle agreed. Miss Shaw went on
to say that after their last ride on the
merry-go-round, Waufle proposed to
her that tuey taice a wane, one ac
cepted, but when they had proceeded
only a short distance when she be
came suspicious and wanted to return
to the swing, but her companion
dragged her into the weeds, where
they remained for a half hour, and
during all this time she was scream
ing and struggling to prevent Waufle
accomplishing his purpose.
Several witnesses testified that Miss
Shaw's clothing and hat wero torn
and dirty and that she was in an ex
ceedingly nervous state when they
saw her u short time after the alleged
assault occurred, and her mother tes
tified that her baelc and shoulders
were badly bruised and lacerated, sho
being so sore and lame that she had
to be Assisted out of bed.
Pearl Waufle's defense was an alibi.
The defense admitted the uierry-go-round
and automobile rides, but hero
the stories of tho defense and prose
cution diverged. Waufle claimed, and
introduced testimony to prove his as
sertion, that almost immediately after
the last automobile ride ho left tho
grounds with some of tho boys, and
that Miss Shuw started out walking
with a party named Games, from
Grand Island, whom Waufle claimed
had accompanied him and Miss Shaw
on their auto ride. Tho jury evidently
believed Waufle's story, and after be
ing out but a short time returned a
verdict of not guilty.
Ernest Morunvlllo, a farm hand, who
was held for forgery, was discharged.
Tho Wisher-Ryan ease, resulting from
the replevin of some stock which Uyan
had taken up for trespass, was decided J
in favor of Fisher and the costs, !
amounting to more than a hundred
dollars, was assessed against Kyan.
Knows "A Good Tiling"
While The Chief is not accustomed
to reproducing 'hand-outs" from its
contemporaries, tho following from
Hi-other Newmeycr of the (Snide Hook
News Letter, a thoroughly competent
judge, is such a nice one that we can
not refrain from printing it:
"Have you noticed what a smooth
newspaper they are sending out from
the olllco of The Red Cloud Chief?
It is not as big as some, but it reads
us though edited by an editor and
looks as though printed by a printer,
and from the appearance of the adver
tising columns the business manager
seems to be carrying his coiner right
along with the rest. Of course this is
not saying that there are not other
excellent papers at the county seat
for in its newspapers Red Cloud is
particularly fortunate but The Chief
looks good to us. We can sug
gest only one improvement and that
would come from u more dignified and
distinctive heading, though the pres
ent one is preferable to the one for
merly used, representing a solitary
I'iute or Apache seated on a cotton
wood log by the railroad track wait
ing for the through freight to strike
the high grade and give him a chance
to climb on. That died hard."
Thanks, Brother. In regard to the
heading: Wo have been trying for a
year or more to convey our idea of a
suitable heading to the engravers, so
far without success. '
Kod Cloud the fore part of the week
in tho interest of the proposition to
build a new court house. We will
give our neighbors a friendly pointer
that it will never do to go cavorting
around the country in an automobile
if they want to popularize this move
ment with tho people. They won't
stand for it. They argue that peoplu
who can go electioneering in automo
biles can also build a court house if
the one we have now does not suit
them. And these autoists forgot to
call at the newspaper offices, which is
an unpardonable oversight. Tho edi
tors at the county seat who insist on
having a rake-oil' out of everything ov
everybody that comes up, have taught
us fellows out in the suburbs bail
manners, and got us all converted to
the doctrlnu that "the laborer is
worty of his hire," and the higher the
better. We don't know what it will
require to make the Signal and the
lUadeu Enterprise and the Blue Hill
Leader "sit up and tukt? notice," but
nothing less than five figures will call
this News hotter, and they must be
properly arranged in relation to tho
dollar mark, and not over four of them
may be ciphers, though two of these
may be. set oft for cents but the dol
lars we must insist on."
ally in earnest they may perhaps be
moved to do something. Now is the
time to commence. Plans should be
completed and the contract placed in
the contractor's hands as soon as pos
sible. Work should start tho next
day after school closes, "hot us be
up and doing."
Has n Familiar Sound.
Uncle George Maker and his estima
ble wife have been visiting in Ohio,
and the following item from the
Gallon Daily header of November .'I
has a familiar ring to it:
"Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Maker of Red
Cloud, Nebraska, were guests of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Khinohurl this week.
Mr. Baker was born near Mlooinlng
grove, O., and spent his boyhood days
in this vicinity. He remembers tho city
of Gallon when it was a town without
n railroad, and the days when he
drove an ox team, "Muck and Merry,"
hitched to an old fashioned two-wheel
dump-cart and helped in tho construc
tion of Gallon's first railroad. He re
members the first engine that came
into Gallon over the new road; it had
wooden truck wheels. Mr. Baker, is it
prosperous Nebraska farmer."
