By F. M. KIMMELL , . Subscription , $1 a Year in Advance OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPJR Largest Circulation in Red Willow Co THB showing made by the house o representatives on the money question is not encouraging toBryanites. The house passed the gold standard measure by vote of 190 to 150 , every Republican anc eleven Democrats voting aye. The vott for this bill represents two-thirds of the people of the United States , and the nexi presidential campaign will undoubted ! } start with the gold standard as the law of the land. Has Mr. Bryan noted the recent action of the Southern Hosiery Spinners' Asso ciation at Charlotte , N. C. ? The meet ing represented 75 per cent , of all the hosiery spinners of the South , and they adopted resolutions setting forth the necessity of maintaining an open-door policy id China , the restoration of order in the Philippines by this government , the construction of the Nicaragua canal , and other matters. This is only an in stance of the attitude of the entire tex tile industries in the South. THB recent financial disasters , which are largely the result of injudicious loans upon watered stock , are liable to throw the trust "promoters" out of employ ment and permanently check these spec ulative prices , which have brought reproach preach upon many legitimate business consolidations required for the economi cal production of articles of consumption. Legitimate consolidation of interests to reduce the cost of production , and so re duce the price to consumers , is quite a different thing from the indiscriminate organization of enormous concerns with inflated stock for speculation purposes only , and the public will quickly dis criminate betwee'n the two systems. HERB are a few notes from a single issue of Bradstreets , that of December 9 , 1899 : "Wages of employes in the cotton mills in Augusta , Georgia , are to be ad vanced January first ; Pennsylvania in dustries are employing 300,000 more per sons than they were a year ago ; 100,000 New England cotton mill operatives have received an advance of 10 per cent in wages ; the Richmond , Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad Company has given the yard conductors and trackmen a 10 per cent increase in wages ; about 2,400 workers in the watch factories at Elgin , Illinois , are to receive an increase in wages January ist. " Let's see ; who was it that said that "it's better to open the mills than the mints" ? THE leaders of the Democratic party are becoming more and more perplexed as the presidential campaign approaches. Most factions are fairly well agreed upon Bryan as candidate , but demands are coming from different sections that he amend or drop certain of his issues ; then his election will be insured. But what issues ? He cannot drop silver or he will lose Populist and Silver Republican votes in the West ; if he opposes expan sion he will alienate the South , which is overwhelmingly in favor of the policy ; if he takes up the tariff question again , as free traders advise , he will antagonize workingmen in the North who are en joying steady employment and at in creased wages ; if he attemps to make a strong fight on trusts he will find him self forestalled by the Republicans. Mr. Bryan has expressed himself clearly on all these questions , so that retreat seems impossible , and yet his attitude , as events have shaped , is at variance with his entire party.on one point or another.

ROYAL BAKING PQPEB CO. , HEW YORK. Best Grades Building Materials of all Kinds. BARBED WIRE WIRE FENCING HARD AND SOFT COAL o Barnett Lumber Co , Dennison Street SOUTH SIDE. Roy Jacobs is on the sick-list. It was a gladsome Christmas time , indeed. Endeavor and preaching services , Sunday , were well attended. There was a skating party at S. G. Goheen's , Monday afternoon. Florence Johnston led the Endeavor meet ing , Sunday afternoon. Rev. Walker of McCook has been holding evening meetings in the school-house , this week. Vacation brought home a number of our young folks , and they are all having a pleasur able time. The poor condition of the ice , Christmas , was a great disappointment to many who were out for a skate. Fireman Arthur Douglass , an oldtime Mc- Cookite , now of Denver , was a South Side visitor , fore part of the week. A number of the young folks gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Maxwell , Monday night , and enjoyed a delightful time. The Christmas tree and programme , Satur day night , was the finest entertainment ever given in district 8 , and was attended by a large and appreciative audience. The smoothness with which everything passed off , the way in which the children spoke their selections , and the manner of doing the dia logue all spoke well for the pupils and teach er. The earnest efforts of Miss Whittaker brought the musical part of the programme out in fine shape. All in all , it was a merry and satisfactory occasion. The Appetite of a Goat Is envied by all poor dyspeptics whose stomach and liver are out of order. All such should know that Dr. King's New Life Pills , the wonderful stomach and Liver Remedy gives a splendid appetite , sound digestion and a regular bodily habit that insures peifect health and great energy. Only 250 at McConnell - Connell & Berry's. REDWILLOW. Mrs. Nesbit came down from Frontier coun ty to spend Christmas with her parents , Mr. and Mrs. Benj. Baker. Miss Ida Canaga has so far recovered from her injuries as" to be about on crutches. It will be sometime before her recovery is com plete. A company of school children took their Christmas dinner at the Byfield home. No merrier company could have been found in this precinct. A general neighborhood dinner was par taken of at the school house in the north end of district 72. They always manage to have a good time up'there. Charlie Byfield and Holton Longnecker each have a two weeks vacation which they are spending at home. Eddie Byfield also has a ten days vacation and is home from Franklin academy. On Wednesday , Mrs. Longnecker gave a dinner to a few of the old settlers. It was a very pleasant affair , for no one better under stands the art of entertaining than do-Mr , and Mrs. Longnecker. There is a rumor afloat that Mr. J. F. Helm will remove his family from the metropolitan Kedwillow to the more quiet village of Indian- ola where he will conduct a meat market. Rumor says that Albert Helm has rented the farm. The school entertainment at Miss May Stangland's school was one of the events of the neighborhood and the teacher deserves great credit for the perfect training of the little school. It was an entertainment that a school of larger proportions need not have been ashamed of. One surprise party a week will not do. Last week there were two. One at Mr. Longneck- er's home , the other'at J. F. Helm's. Both were joyous affairs and if this thing goes on much longer , some of the folks will have to be surprised the second time. An oyster supper at Mr.bheets' , next Saturday night , will afford a different sort of dissipation. Miss Anna E. Gunning"Tyre , Mich. , says , "I suffered a long time from dyspepsia ; losi flesh and became very weak. Kodol Dyspep sia Cure completely cured me. " It digests what you eat and cures all forms of stomach trouble. It never fails to give immediate re lief in the worst cases. D. W. Loar. DANBURY.

The brick work is completed on the new church and the carpenters are busy putting on the finishing touches. Guy Curlee came in from Danbury on No. 5 , Satvrday evening , and ate Christmas tur key with his parents. Vickrey's force of clerks have been kept busy , the past week , with the holiday trade and invoicing on the side. David Mangus is selling liquid lightning and bottled pig-squeals , guaranteed to cure all the ills to which flesh is heir. C. C. Richards , an early settler living six miles southeast of town , died ort Wednesday. His illness was of short duration. Kitttie Stangland and Clara Happersett are spending their two weeks' vacation with their parents at McCook and Indianola. Grace Clark , who has been staying at A. L. Cochran's and attending school , was very sick for a few days , but was able to be taken home. Sunday. Cecil Matthews has been employed on the Inter-Ocean , this week. He takes full pos session of the office , January ist , having leased the plant for a year. The school entertainment was a grand suc cess , the receipts amounting to upwards of $30.00. The song "Cast Aside , " by Mrs. A. B. Wilson , was a great hit. "Tony" Dietsch says he don't believe in being in the da"rk in this world and the next , too , and has accordingly purchased a new gas lamp for bis barber shop. P. W. Price , C. W. and J. II. Keys and fam ilies spent Christmas with their parents on the farm west of town. Mr. Price is a son-in- law of Mr. Keys and resides at Diller , Neb. J. H. Jeffrey has resigned his position with the Inter-Ocean to accept one in a job office at Exeter. The young man made many friends here whose wishes for his success will follow him. E. J. Merchant leaves .the employ of W. V. Vickrey after January ist. He will embark in the general merchandise business in a Mis souri town. We regret to lose him , but wish iiim success in his new quarters. Sadye Hamilton and Maude Vickrey did the soliciting for the supper to be given after the band concert , tonight , and the fact that .hey are on the committee is assurance that the refreshments will be no secondary consid eration. At the request of Maud and Blanche about fifteen of the young people gathered at the home of W. F. Miller , Christmas night , where : hey indulged in various games for several lours , after which refreshments were served , xmsisting of ice cream , fancy pastry , fresh : ruits and choice candies. All report having i grand time. John Short was miraculously saved from the aws of death , Saturday evening , by "Doc" Dosem Bush , V.S. Short ate peanuts and ap- jles in unlimited'quantities on a wager , and vas soon thereafter seized with discord in his garbage barrel and the V. S. was summoned. 'Doc" ' said the spinal column was knotted at he coacum and it prevented the areteal ilood from circulating to his dormitory , but .ssured him that under his scientific treat- tient he could be saved from the smudge in ades , and accordingly inserted a long rubber ese down his sewer and from the garbage arrel removed two quarts of peanuts , a peck f apples , a Saturday Blade and an Inter Scan. The V. S : removed the stomach for loser examination and "Tony's" bird dog an- exed it , and the surgeon ran across the alley nd took one from a calf which he inserted ithout Short's knowledge. John is getting long nicely , but has developed an abnormal ppetite for hay and potato parings , and at ight wanders around chewing the narratives EE of "biled" shirts hanging out with the eek's washing.
