history of these bond ntid ho does not
know what the circumstances were

know that thoy nre paid and no longer

may bo that wo are Justus well pleased
over paying tbeo bonds as were tho

county is glad twice.
It lias been suggested a number of
times that this city could realize a
good profit from it small investment
by using the exhaust steam from the

that It would be well for the city otll

can be done.
At the sale of Mousel Bros, at Cam
bridge, Tuesday, January 58, fifty
Mvcn head of Hereford averaged $.111
per head. Buyers from eight states
tvero present at the Bale. The stock
was all Nebraska bred, and tho inn
jjorlty weio under two years of age.
All tho stock was less than 1 years old.
Iho Chief believes that this city
could be made much more attractive
(.tlurlng tho summer months if more
Jlovrers wero planted and cured for.
The school grounds-, tho court house
grounds and even the terraces along
prlvnto residences could be easily
planted so that our city would indeed
be n city beautiful. If we do not take
pride in our own city no one else will.
Go-to-Church Sunday was observed
in this city and all the churches report

In order to supply tho demands of
soap makers, settleis in Western Kan
sas are cutting and marketing Spanish
bayonet, or soap weed, technically
known as Yuegu baeeata. Manufac
turers are paying 8S.00 pur ton for the
plant f. o b. eats at railway stations,
while the udimiited cost of cutting,
drying, lulling and hauling ranges
from $.i.00 to SU.oO per ton depending
upon tho distance from the railroad.
In the mamifiicluro of soap some
makers utilize tliu tops and others the
roots of the plant. It is said that one
man can cut it ton per day. After cut
ting it is allowed to dry from sixty to
ninety days and is then baled in it
regular broom corn balling machine.
pounds of butter. l'our cows of tho
Unlvorslty herd Lavo even a more re
mitrkublo record. l.aMny, Uoxiinnii,
Yctta Oerbon and ICaty Gerbon have
an average record of i!0,G80 pounds of
milk and tilt) pounds of butter. The
most remarkable cow of the herd,
however, is LuMny with a record for
ono day of D!).l pounds of liilllt: for
ono month, !i,877 pounds; and for one
year, 2C,CC0 pounds. The butter re
cord Is CK57 pounds. Considering the
fact that tho avorago Nebraska cow
gives but '1,000 pounds of milk annual
ly and but 1-7 pounds of butter fats,
tho records in the University herd are
not only remaikablu facts, but show
what can bo douo with proper breed
ing and eare. All of the cows woie
bied and developed at tho state farm.
A Communication
A special session of the grand lodge
fjefOdd Follows will bo hold In this
rjdty on March second. This is tho
Jlrst time in tho history of tho order
lbat lied Cloud bus been favored with
meeting of this kind. Elaborate
preparations at e. being made to enter
tain the grand oilicers and tho visiting
brothers, hi all probability the Be
publican valley degico contest will bo
Jield at tho same time ntid so this
Meeting will be a big one.
There seems to be a good deal of
olisconteut up in Franklin county. The
.'jtewspapers assert that tho board of
ueoMuty commissioners are democrats
.and that tboy gavo tho county print
ing to a republican paper at a higher
raio than the democratic press olfercd
Jlo perform the same labor. If those
itbargcB iito true the papers making
,tlie charges have it right to take um
brage but if they are false it will bo
reany for tho commissioners to present'
all the bids.

Editor Chler:-
You say the investment was a good
oue to vote the 17,000 railroad bonds.
It cost Webster county about 8110,000
absolutely uncalled for. In fact when
you consider the money spent for elec
tion mid tho many acres of laud that
were given away one way and another,
wo can't, estimate how much it cost the
taxpayers. For this reason it was un
called for. Tho II. & M Intel to start
out from Hastings to make it pay to
run that short distance. Any man
with common sense knew it would be
only u question of one or two yeais
before some rail road company would
build a rail road up that glorious Re
publican vulley. It was too good a
tiling to let the oppoitunlty lay, and
you bet thoy would have built it with
out bonds.
We did not need a rail road very bad
for a few years, because wo had a good
home market for nil we raised
Another reason was that congress
donated tho county all land from rango
8 to rango 17, if 1 am not mistaken,
free. Now was it not reasonable that
by capturing the grand Republican
valley clear to Denver, heading oil'
any other 'company, and bad tor it
width of'lU miles pararell to do it. A
big profit to tliem to enhance the value
of their lands from sturt. to tluish,
nearly 'J.3,000 acres of land in our
county alone. If 1 am not mistaken it
runs tli rough throe counties.
Was it not it fact Unit it was a ques
tion of had too? If you can dispute
tiiese facts 1 would like for some oue
to do it. If you can dispute the fact
that a certaiu well to do man of Red
Cloud did not sell the igiioiamises out
for what thuy got out, of it, 1 am ghtd
to bo shown. Then regardless of get
ting the bonds, they dictated to i-aeh
vitiligo thai they must nivc them ono
one'half of all vacant lots or they
would put the depots a mdo oi two t. II
on their own laud, and leave them in
the mud.
Yes, surely we must be thankful
that wo weio robbed out of 200,000, if
all was counted. 1 know this to be
true because 1 lived in a dugout then,
right on the nearest cut to Nelson.
That is all theie is to it. It is ull
right to fool tho young generation,
but the poor fellows who settled in
pioneer days know better.

Mrs. Annlo Heasloy recently saw tho
possibilities of chicken farming, and
sho turned to Cullfornln for an ideal
cllmiito. Sho started with a small cot
tage and ono aero of ground but sho
started right. Today sho owns a ranch
of several acres and confesses sho hns
an annual Incomo of handsomo propor
tions. Her first flock consisted of ono
roratcr and seven hens, but all wero
puro bred bought nt tho Los Angeles
poultry show. That year she had only
two chicken houses, but the next year
increased them to four, and tho follow
ing to eight. Now she has a big ranch,
but tho strain of hor poultry has al
ways been kept puro, so her prlzo win
ners aro worth tho $25 sho charges for
them and they eat no more corn than
Incubators and brooders aro kept
running all tho year except in July,
August and September, and tho little
flocks, as thoy como along, are ill Id
etl for shows and shops. Tlio perfect
specimens aro ready to bo groomed
wllli washings and bluing, and tho
others receive three times a day all
they will eat of milk, oatmeal and
arain to fatten them. Mrs. Ucasloy
lias found that it is, even more prolt
t'ble to Sell egg at $3 a sotting than at
GO cents a dozen.

Scots Tango-Stricken.
Tanso Is to bo the rngo in Edinburgh
during tlio present dancing season.
Such is n plain statement in conven
tional languago, which is all the mora
emphatic because of its directness.
Iii fact, all Scotland is in tlio grip of
tho tango craze. It has spread to
Scottish ballrooms, and Is supersed
ing tho waltz and tho two-stop. Soon
tho fascinating Importation from the
Argentine, say the authorities, will
blot every other danco out of tho ball
room program.
Tango as taught Iti Edinburgh by all
tho toachera of dancing without ex
coption is a danco of infinite beauty
and charm, and ono requiring a con
siderable amount of talent In which to
be proficient. Tho tcachors of danclns
in Edinburgh aro very conservative in
their methods.
