A Suggestion From Blue Hill.

' The result of the bond election have-
Zing now been generally discussed and
digested, it seems to me proper that
there should be some interchange of
ideas in the effort to arrive at some
a definite- conclusion regarding the
building of a suitable court house for
Webster county. It is reported that
there is some soreness at the county
seat in regard to the election resultr
and some disposition to regard it as a
blow at the city f Uetl Cl-uiid. If thin
be true it is. I think, entirely unwar
ranted by the facts. While few voters
supported the proposition this should
not be construed as a '"slam" at Ked
Cloud. not at all. It simply indica
ted that the plan voted on was not
satisfactory. Indued it does not seem
to have been entirely satisfactory to
lled Cloud itself, as I notice Hint a
c insiderable vote was cast against it
there. Neither should this remark
able result be understood as a declar
ation by the voters that they are nu
ll willing to build a courthouse nor that
t'icre is a disposition on the part of
any large number to ultimately change
the location of the county seat. The
county seat will always be at Ited
Cloud ami the voters are entirely will
ing to erect a suitable building, one
suited to the present and future needs
of the county.
Hefore writing this letter I have
talked with a large number of repre
sentative business men and farmer
and, almost without exception, they
unite with me in thinking that the
isue of bonds in any amount at all is
unnecessary and objectional and that

11. A. SlMI'soN.
We will state for the benefit of Mr.
Simpon that there is not so much
'soreness" in lied Cloud ns one would
naturally expect. In regard to paying
oft" the piesent bonded debt: That
can not be done for twenty years, as
they are not payable at the option of
the county. Ten thousand dollars
w'U be paid in l'.KISt. leaving 8:10,000
still to pay in the next twenty years.
This is not the fault of the people of
Ked Cloud, nor of any other particular
locality, and we know of no way out
o it except to grin and bear it. We
don't want to wait twenty years to
begin work on the new court house.
The Hypnotic. Exhibition.
Marquis the hypnotist entertained
a large crowd at the Orand last night.
The program was made up of old and
new demonstrations ami in all was
a creditable performance. A number
of young men were introduced in the
fishing, swiming, cow milking, prize
fighting and other ridiculous stunts
while the professor also gave some
scientific demonstrations that were in
structive and interesting. His self
hypuDsis was something new to our
people and the fact of him successfully
hypnoticlng himself In-forts the au
dience was testified by a committee of
our townsmen as being genuine effort.
While in this sleep pins were thrust
in his arms, his body rolled off the
chair on to the floor without any ef
fect noticable upon the subject.
His recovery of a pin taken from a
lady in the house mid hidden upon
the person of another lady was a clev
er piece of work. This is accomplish
ed through what is known as mental
telepathy and the lady having the pin
hidden upon her taking two or three
runs around the house last night cer
tainly made it hard labor for the pro
fessor, but added to making the feat
much more ditllcult.
Marquis is one of the best in his
line of work. He was for years with
the famous Flint and docs every thing

work, lie will satisfy you if you are
skeptical as to hypnotism ami demons

see him tonight. An entire change of
program will be given. There is no
limit to the possibilities in the work
of hypnotism. The courts, medical
ovpertsjund legal authorities recognize
it and you should know something
about it. This is your opportunity to
see one of the best on the road.
