Old County Court House
To Become Annex to Red Cloud Schools
It is to laugh!
Kiid Cloud eitiens and newspapers
have been hollowing tlieli heads oil for
the lasV ten ear- about the old Couit
house. How unsightly it was and how
much danger that Hie would b irn all
tliu county tccoids over in the Count
Clerks oil Ice. lint when we build a
new court house they llud themselves
ho much in love with the old Temple
of Justice that they can't givp it up,
and proceed to buy it as an annex to
(libit- high school building. Wo k ap
pose it will be u lot uioio sightlyiu its
new location one-half block away and
a lot lets apt to burn the county re
cords in the county clerks olllce. Of
course it may burn a few hundred
children to death but that is d lifer
ent. Webster County News, Cowles.
It is not that tho cltizotis of Red
Cloud love tho looks of tho old court
houso building that they will use It for
school purposes but because moro room
must he provided for tho ever increas
ing attendance at the high school.
This building will not have a lire in it
and so theie will bo no danger either
to the county recoids or tho children,
ami tr it can ue made to last six or
eight years it will havo fulfilled Its
