THE BUSINESS COLLEGE
Prof. H'rttht Hakes Statement ttciard
lnfc Financial Condition, Etc.
In submitting the following state
mont of the condition of the Koil Cloud
llusiness college I wish to say that I
do not care to place before the general
public difficulties that affect the pat
rons particularly, but if those directly
interested in the school will call at the
otlicc f v ill give them information in
detail anent the present predicament
and will try to point the way out.
During this school year the amount
of money received by L. M. Steward
was as follows.
.Scholarships S S00
Monthly tuition, estimat"d 27,"
Typewriter rent, estimated 7fi
Since Dec. 1 the town bus pain in 7.r
In nil 81,305
The above is as nearly correct ns it
In possible to give as Steward took all
the. books and accounts away with
wanted to straighten everything up so
I could run the school until he came
back, which ho stated would bo about
May 15. I took him to bo a man of
his word, but he failed to show up at
7 or any other time until late in the
Some have reported that the school
is to close. This is not true, as 1 in
tend to run the school the balance of
the year if there is any possible show
for It at all. Hut unless the people
back me up and help me out it is go
ing to be a greater loss than I eare to
lteforo closing I wish to siiy this
about the school and Ked Cloud as a
school center: This school could be
made one of the best, if not the bet,
in the state. If the people in gen
eral would lend a helping hand
1 believe 1 could make it one of
the best in a short time. In or
der to do this, one of the llrt
things to be done would be to rid
Ked (loud of some of its evils and
vices, in order to get the Christian
men and women of the country to send

THIRTY YEARS AGO
item from "The Cliicl" of Fcbrunry 21, 1878
Mr. Cather of Catherton made us a
very pleasant call last week.
Mr. (Jcorgo Bmery and Miss Vina
Arnett were uiairicd February 10.
I. j, Miner of Waukon, Iowa, has
purchased the Star saloon building
amf will put in a stock of merchandise.
Miss Charlotte Weber was thrown
from her horse on Tuesday evening
and broke her ankle above the instep.

him; but it is u low estimate to say
the least. 1 wish to say that I am
simply running the school for the ac
commodation of tlio'-e who have paid
in their hard earned money. Steward
collected all of the tuition for this
month, and besides that, in considera
tion of two notes thut I was to have,
I allowed him money enough to 'pay
half of "his coal bill, which was SCO.
Instead of turning the notes over to
me he transferred them on tlm coal
account. Although the town is pay
ing the rent, I have my own expenses
and the expenses of a bhorthad teacher
to pay, with nothing coming in. Un
lesji we can get more scholars t'lere
will only be about S'iO tuition for the
month of March. There are mhub who
will .say, "Why did you let him get
iiwnyV" In the llrst place, he told iim
he was not going until the 17th, but
instead of that he took advantage of
me and packed his goods and had them
half way downstairs before" I know
anything about what he was doing.
This was about 1:1ft, and two classes
yet to recite. He told me at that time
to come to the otllce at 7 o'clock, as hu
their boys and girls here to school.
Then the next thing would be a larger
and batter building, with accommoda
tions in the way of a small library
and apparatus for experiments in
chemistry, physics and physiology, and
also some otllee Hxtures for the com
mercial department. Then get at least
two or three more good teachers and
put In a course of study, so the young
man or young woman completing the
work would have something back of
thou when going out into life.
Bveryono knows that when the boys
and girls are sent away to other
states, or even to other parts of this
state, it takes money from the commu
nity instead of bringing it in, so why
not keep it here.
Since beginning this I have received
a letter from Paul S. Dietrich, stating
th.it Steward had made no arrange
ments for leaving the school and had
no settlement since December 1, 1007.
Abking your aid and hoping you
will give, this matter due considera
tion, I am,
Yours for business,
Pitor. C M. Wiuoiir.

has undergone since its organization
less than eighteen months ago, when
they started a bunch of green material.
They challenge any band iu the stato
of the same age, and many much older,
to put on one-half as good a concert as
the above. Come out, and show your
appreciation of the much hard work
the boys and their director have done
to make such a program possible. The

AN ELECTRIC THEATER
Red Cloud Will Soon Have a Permanent
Moving Picture Show.
Mr. W. II. Taber has about comple
ted arrangements to give Kcd Cloud r.
permanent amusement house In the
form of an electrlu theater, which h
such a popular kind of amusement in
the larger cities. Mr. Taber has leased
the basement of the old b St. M. haul'
building, and will put in a cement.
Moor and otherwise fix It up for a bll
Hard hall. The cement building which,
is now occupied by his billiard hall
will be turned Into a theater. The
room Is well adapted for miuh a pur
pose, being of such length ami breadth
as to scat comfortably JJOO to l!M)
people. The culling Is high and thu
ventilation good. It is Mr. Tabcr
present intention to give only night
shows, with the exception, possibly
of Wednesday and Saturday afternoon
matinees. The programs will consist
ehlclly of moving pictures and illustra
ted songs, and may be varied occa
sionally with vaudeville performances.
The theater will not be opened for a
few weeks, as It will require consider
able time to make the necessary alter
ations in the buildings. Truly, Red
Cloud is becoming metropolitan.

VAJHY StOCkilldS Jt 1S truc t'iat Stock'mgs ought to wear better
V KJJfi lffijgj? ian lcy (1' lc Hose we sell, it sometimes
f f IrOn I m Guiii seems, ought to wear better. Customers occasion
ally say that no stockings wear as well as they used to do. Of course, the trouble
is partly in the Stocking and partly in the wearer.
Women don't wear as heavy Hose as they once wore. They say: "Give
me something thinner; 1 can't wear those thick ones." And, of course, the ma
terial is not in them to give service. We would not expect the same service
from a lace and broadcloth gown, yet we do something similar in our reasoning
Then many require that their Hose (it like a glove. If they were to buy a
half si.c larger they would add much to the life of a pair of Hose. A good deal
depends on the treatment given a Stocking. If it is pulled on, twisted on, jerked
on, or worn with ill-fitting shoes, even a firm Stocking will soon give way.
It must be said, too, that dyes which are too strong will ruin a Stocking.
That is where the customer is powerless, and it is where we are powerless as
well. The old iron-wearing Hose were ingrain dyed colored in the yarn before
knitting. The newer fast blacks are much more evenly dyed, but an acid is used
that sometimes gets ahead of the watchfulness even of experts. But people,
would not have the old gray-touched Hose and they can't have guaranteed wear
combined with fast, even 'color.
