Bach succeeding year emphasizes
the fact that we ought to have a purU

city owes It to the inhabitants to pro

where all tho city can gather and en
joy h restful day out of doors.
Now that a portion of Webster fttreet
is being fitted up with cement gutters
we think that the entiro business sect
ion should catch the outhuslam and
construct gutters also. This Is the
first stop towards paving and shows
progress and prosperity. Strangers
judge u city as much by Mts streets as
they do by the buildings they see. If
the streets are clean and well kept, it
denotes a thrift impossible to convey
in any other manner. Lot the good
work go on.
We luivo reason to feel proud of the
showing that our high school athletics

Collier's Weekly, of the 27th ult.,
devotes two pages and part of a third
to a written description and pictorial
illustration of the efforts of the people
of Merlden, New Hampshire to pro
mote tint increase of the wild birds in
variety, in number, in the neighbor
hood. A few years Hgo the oflleluls
about tho court house took a llitle
pains to encourage the disposition of
tho squirrels to make their homes in
the trees of the court house park.

Doubtless a large portion of the
people of the city go to and from
their daily tasks without noticing the
songs that thrill tho Hir of the streets
and the lawns with melody. Many of
these same people will pay money and
go to some inconvenience, to sit for an
hour op uncomfortable chairs in the.

fair imitator of the music that may be '

and sadness. It may be ditllcult, at
Urst,ito account for the change. The

heart, even, though one may bo unable

him unlimited space for a full state-

might expect to attract ,by proper
methods. If in cold New Hampshire
the people can add to tin' charm and
happiness of life by u little consider

may we do In sunny Nebraska?

a very significant factor in the forma
tion of the public opinion of America
One can not read it, however, without
some misgiving as to tho correctness
of its statements and tho fairness of
Its opinions, because of tho evident
bias it exhibits. In the Issue under
consideration, it attacks the judges of
the federal courts without any pre
tense of respect, and to the utidisciiiul
Hilling reader its attack will seem
justified by tho facts It alleges. The
thoughtful reader, on the other hand,
becomes suspicious that tho facts are
not fully presented, and he, therefore,
questions the conclusions.
The Chief has no doubt, but that the
facts give color to the charges made,
and, while nut questioning the person

We have no sympathy with the pre

ism, provided that criticism he of a
character to appeal to the thoughtful

high-salaried' members of the bar.
Many of thom have been a disgrace to
the bench they are incompetent to
adorn, and tho cause of righteousness
and justice has been the least consid
ered element in their adjudications.
Mr. llryau's suggestion, that the Presi
dent file with his nominations the
recommendations upon which he bases
them, does not seem to us sulilciently
comprehensive to afford the relief de
sired. The appointments would be
made without recommendations, or
sutllcient recommendations could
readily bo procured by tho nominee
after u hint that they would be useful.
The whole trouble lies in the life ten
ure of the iufoiior judges. Congress
should abolish all the inferior courts
which the constitution will penult,
and create now ones with judges whose
shortness of tei in would lender them
more obedient to the public will and
more considerate of public opinion.

Red Cloud Boy Makes Good
Every alumnus of the Red Cloud
schools, and, for that matter, all the
under graduates, the teachers and pa
trons of tho schools, should obtain
and presei've a copy of the Chicago
Tribune of last Sunday. That paper
contains a full page picture In colors
by Omer Holler of the class, of '03.
The picture is entitled "At the Tele
phone". Were It on better paper it
would be suitable for framing and
hanging on the wall of a parlor. It
represents a beautiful young lady
sealed at a table with a telephone bo
fore her and flowers are in her hair.
The people of Red Cloud should feel it
good deal of pride in the fact thatonu
of our boys lias won the notice of ;i
newspaper of the character of the
Chicago Tribune, and has accomplish
ed It that, a paper, which not un
worthily claims to be the greatest
newspaper in the world, accords such
prominence to the production of his
pencil. Mr Butler Is but twenty-six
yours of age. For an artist of that
age. to have gained u permanent posi
tion on the pictorial stall of such a
publication promises woll for it highly
successful future, Mr. Duller was
married two weeks ago. His present
Manny, we lire informed, is 'Js per
week, or a little less than fifteen hun
dred dollars per year. The other
members of tho class of '03 arc Will
Overman, Earl Crabill, W I). Edson,
our Argus friend, Mrs Ned Grimes,
and the Misses Vui'i llutchiion, Mary
Sheldon and Pearl Pope. They will
be pleased to learn of the distinction
their clus-mato lias achieved.
The Influence of Example
A pleasing illustration of the power
of a good example Is now being given
to the people of the city. U. W Tur
mire came to the conclusion that he
would do something towards removing
the mud holes which have disfigured
and disgraced the main portion of
Webster street. Ho consulted Saun
ders Iiros., as to tho Cost of making n
cement gutter in front of his recent
purchase, the Moon Block. Tho lum
ber linn suit! t lint, it would put in a
gutter on Fourth Avenue in front of
the lumber yard, ami thus aseeitaiii
the cost of tho work, This was don
lust week, and the cost cstiniHti'd at
fifty cents per lineal foot. Mr. Tur
uure told the firm to go ahead and
make the improvement before hi
property, work was commenced Tues
day afternoon. Thereupon Dr. Dam
orall suggested that his property on
tho north corner be improved in the
same manner at the same time, Adam
Morhurt thought the Opera House
front should receive a like treatment.
This took in nil of the Webster street
frontage of that block except the bauk
bulldiug owned by John Uentley, who
is in Arkansas. He has been written
to, and will doubtless agree to a like
improvement. Across the street the
Overing Iiros., signified their willing
m ss to do likewise. Dr. Cook gave in
his adhesion. Wade Koontz, of course
will not bo backward. The same spirit
has been exhibited by several of the
property owners in the block south.
Within a week it is very probable that
Webster Street and Fourth Avenue
will bu improved by permanent gutters
for two blocks, thus making a flue
st.trt towHids the cleanliness and
beauty of the business streets.
