The liopuhlicau city convention met
yesterday afternoon and indorsed the
nominees of the Citizens' convention,
with the exception that Win. Wolfe
was nominated for member of the
school board in place of V. It. Fulton,
whom it is understood does not expect
to be in the city during the greater part
of the term.
It is also said that W. X. Iliehardsou
will decline the nomination for coun
cilman in the Frst ward, and the va
cancy on the ticket, will be tilled by
appointment when Mr. Richardson's
otlieiul withdrawal is received.
The present city administration has ,
done more good work than any previ
ous administration for years, and we
had hoped to see it receive the eudors
ment of tin; Republican convention. but
the sentiment of those who attended
the party caucuses Wednesday evening
was in favor of indorsing the citizens'
nominee, who are all good men and
will make capable city ollicers.
SET BED AFIRE.
Little Children Nearly Cause a Confla

Wednesday afternoon saved the home
of George Clark, in the south part of
town, from destruction by lire. Mrs.
Clark had gone to neighbor's and left
her two little boys, aged respectively
I and 0 years, at home alone. During1
her absence the boys began playing
with matches and carelessly set a I
small bed afire. The bed burned so
rapidly the children became scared and
ran out of the house, leaving the door
open. Mrs. Clark was just returning
home and saw the smoke pouring from I
the house, .lack Wilmot responded to1
her cries for help, entered the house j
and carried out the buiiuiug bed. The '
floor had caught lire, but was easily
extinguished. It seems that peopk
will never learn not to leave small
children at home alone.

Two Little Stars.
Recently one of the Chicago's prin
cipal theaters was occupied with a play
in which thcemotional leading roll and
comedy was played by two little chil
dren age five and six. the hittle Perry
Sisters. The press and public were
loud in praise of their wonderful abili
ty. Those clever little girls will be
seen in Harry Shannon's scenic comedy
drama "The Ranker's Child" surround
ed by a strong company of players.
Elaborate costumes and special scenery
is used to properly mount the play
and adds to the beauty of thus urrouud
ings. At the. opera house one night

County Commissioners Order Court
House Bond Election.
The voters of Webster county will be
given an opportunity to say whether
we shall have a new court, house.
Wednesday afternoon the board toqk
up the petition presented by the Red
Cloud Commercial Club asking that a
special election be called to vote, upon
the proposition to issue ST.VOOO bonds
for the purpose of building and furn
ishing a new court house, und unani
mously voted to call a special election
to be held April MO.
It is thought, by many that, the
amount asked for is too high, but con
sidering the high price of material and
labor, S7.".O00 was thought to be the
uiinniuiuui price at which a modern
building could be erected and equipped.
It is not the interiiou of the board to
use the entire amount if it is found
that a suitable building can be erected
nt a less cost, and the taxpayers may
rest assured that the money will not
be used extra vigantly. We certainly
need a more substantial building than
the present one, ami the amount asked '
for should build a building that would
answer the purposes of the county for
the next thirty or forty years.
Cattle Moving Out.
K. C. Stock Yards Journal.
JI A. Curtis of Guide Rock. Xeb.. who
had on the market today a carload of
cattle and hogs says that fed cattle
have been moving out of that part, of
Webster county tit a lively rate during
the past few weeks Mr. Curtis thinks
that in uuolhcrjuonth all the fed steers
, will be gone, and as no summer fecd-
ing is done there, that will end the.
I shipments of fed cattle". "Over two
, thirds of ., tin! Jed catt.le have been "jv'vJ -
cd to market," said Mr. Curtis. "As;
a rule the farmers arrange tohuve their"
cattle marketed by the time the spring
work gets under way. so that they will
Miave nothing to hinder them in sced-
' ing time. Corn is thirty eentsii bushel.
but alfalfa is a little high priced.it
now brings eight dollars a ton, as a
! rule. The farmers are preparing to in
crease the alfaifa acreage, as they find
it one of the crops that pays best." ,
Mr. YanDyke, on one of his recent
trips to Phillips county. Kansas, dis-.
covered and brought back what seemn
to be the petrified remains of an an
imal unheard of today anywhere with
in less than a thousand miles of Kan
sas. It looked like the body of a seal,
which if so sheds a flood of light on the
character of animal life in northwest
Kansas in prehistoric times. The fos
sil was found about ten miles south
west of ltloomingtoii.
