RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA. NOVEMBER 28, 1918.
Red Cloud City a
Good Place to live
The cltv of Red Cloud is situated in
the southern part of Webster county
in the valley formed by the Republican
river. It is just six miles from the
northern boundary of Kansas. It is
on the tnalu line of the Burlington
railroad from Kansas City to Denver.
Another road joins this elty with Hast
ings on the north and gives good con
nections with the state capital and the
cities in the eastern part of the state.
The eity Itself is about two miles
long, north and south, and three quar
ters of u mile wide, east and west.
About the first thing to Impress a
stranger when visiting the city Is the
miles and miles of permanent side
walks There are side walks all over
town connected with permanent street
crosslugs which makes it exttemely
easy to get about town. Almost all
of the streets are well graded and kept
in good condition.
The entire city is well drained and
there is never auy danger from Hoods.
Occasionally the Republican gets out
of its banks and overflows as far as
the city limits but owing to tho eleva
tion of the eity itself the Hoods cannot
possibly reach so high. This favorable
iocatiou combined with the choicest
atmosphere and the best climate guar
antees excellent health to all. Such a
thing as an epidemic has never been
The business blocks contain large
well lighted stores in which the very
best of seasonable merchandise is car
ried in stook at all times. These stocks
are large and offer as good choice for
selection as do the stores in the larger
The residence portion of the city is
Ulled with neat cottages, fine dwellings
and several large and portebtlous
homes. The tall trees which abound
all over the city and the blue grass
lawns give an appearance at once in
viting and restful. ,
Tbe'oity is well supplied with church
es and ftohool houses and recently a Y

a good financial foundation. Every
enterprise of merit receives cordial
support from the Chamber of Com
merce. There are a number of social,
fraternal and literary clubs which
have been organized for years which
give ample opportunity for recreation
and profitable diversion.
The citizens here are alert, active
and progressive. They are always
pleased to welcome the new-comer. If
the reader Is riirht now thinking of
seeking a new location either imme
diately or later on we would suggest
that he investigate the resources, the
thrift, the healtbf ulness and the spirit
of Red Cloud. A thoro investigation
will convince anyone that your state
ments have not been exaggerated in a
single detail. Come and see for your
self and then cast your lot in a whole

Mr. Glen Foe rendered a delightful
selection on bis trombone and the
audience wanted more. Mr. Leonard
then delivered an interesting address
on "Opportunities of Today and Those
of Fifty Years Ago," He graphically
pictured the rapid rise of useful in
ventions, showed 'how progressive
Americans made the most of their
wits and how they took advantage of
anything that would enable them to
perform larger duties easier and more
satisfactory. It is bard to realize that
practically all of our tools and con
veniences have been developed in the
last fifty years.
Messrs Crelder, Williams, and John
ston gave another of their fine trios
aud Miss Wiuulfred Wood favored the
audience with a whistling solo.
Mrs. Davisou then gave a spirited
address on the .'Evolution if the
Home," The speaker placed much
importance on home training. She
showed that in the home character is
formed aud that parents should give at
least as much time and energy to the
rearing of their children as they do to
the raising of cattle, horses aud hogs.
The parade of the live stock exhibit
was, the feature on Friday. Perfectly
formed horses, magnlficient cattle,
handsome mules graced che streets of
Red Cloud and showed the throng of
people gathered on the streets that
Webster county produced animals of a
very superior character. Farmers are
no longer satisfied with tho scrubs of
yesterday and they are breeding a type
of animals that ure beautiful to look
upon and most useful to our modern
The Iustltute of 1012 will go down
into history as the most successful
thus far attempted in this county.
The development accomplished in a
single generation is most remarkable
indeed. It is difficult for us to realize
that only a short time ago this fertile
country was given over to the Indian
and the buffalo. The management is
already laying their plans for next
year asd with the experience they

The Holiday Spirit
Says "Give Jewelry'
Nothing else thai comes within the range of gift-giving so
Nothing else is so generally given nothing else so com
pletely voices the spirit of Christmas.
Of course there are many sorts of Jewelry displays. Some
are more comprehensive than others, Some show
greater taste in designing than others. Some arc
more "Christmassy" than others.
We are not going to make any comparisons except to say
that we really believe that you givers of gifts will
find more of the real spirit of the season evidenced
in OUR this year's display than you will find
within many miles of this store.
Giving Jewelry doesn't mean that there's a lot of money
to pay; either not necessarily.
In fact there arc any number of articles here that you can
own for less than a dollar.
But what we want to particularly emphasize here is thatv
you can't have a want at thjsjirne, bjit we ..meet it
with the precise article you desire at itslowest price.
You .can understand just what we mean if you call. ,

BrJOQESTlONS BY THE POULTRY
We will say that birds exhibited this
year was greatly improved over last
year and we wish to encourage this
wbrk of good breeding. However, we
would like to call to your attention
some of the small, but serious defects
in following the standard which is;
Hair or small feathers on toes, crooked
breast, crooked toe.s, clipped wings,
scaley legs, etc. All of these would
dis-qualify birds for prizes. This
year we gave prizes according to score,
but next year we would suggest that
the standard would be followed. Any
one oaring to know the rules and
regulations regarding poultry can get
such information complete by getting
them aStsndard of Perfection for 11.50.
