Rogers have received a stock of over

had better go back east and give up the
ghost , then probably he will have no
use for one.
We had the pleasure of seeing the
rooms which Messrs. Hinman & Glen-

was smoothly hung , and ceiling deco

It will be remembered that some one
attempted some time ago , to wreck the
passenger train west of Arapahoe , hear
Burton's Bend , and that the train men
gave it as their opinion that the at
tempt was made for the purpose of
robbery ; but suspicion rested. upon
certain parties in that vicinity who had
claims , against the B. & M. company ,
and a detective named Galligan has
been working the matter up ever since.
We now learn that on Monday of last
week , Deputy Sheriff I. H. Dempsey ,
arrested Cyrus Callahan and Michael
Morriscy , living near Burton's Bend ,
on a complaint sworn out by detective
Galligan , charging Callahan and Morrissey -
rissey guilt } of attempting to wreck
the train at that time" . The prisoners
were taken to Arapahoe. and had a
preliminary trial on Tuesday , before
Esquire Murphy. The examination
revealed facts that warranted justice
Murphy in binding Callahau over iu the
sum of $1,000 to appear at the next
term of district court. The evidence
was not strong against Morrissey and
he was released. Oxford Register.

Colonel Burch's Lecture.
Although but little advertised , a
large number of our people turned out
to hear what we unhesitatingly style
one ot the finest lectures to which they
will have occasion to listen in along
while. The Colonel took the liberty
to change the subject of his lecture ,
and spoke most earnestly and eloquent
upon "The Battles of Life , " suggesting
some beautiful thoughts , and giving
some wholesome admonitions ; not spar
ing cant and hypocrisy , and extolling
right , truth and justice. Probably the
brightest pearl dropped was that of
man's severe and unwarranted judg
ment of his fellow creature. "Let him
that is without sin cast the first stone,5'
covers the ground of the lecture's re
marks on that subject.
Col. Burch is preparing a hand-book
or pamphlet of Red Willow county , at
the request of a number of our most
influential men , and has been canvas
sing our town in connection with the
same. Such a book is needed and the
Colonel's experience in that line as
sures a highly creditable work.

NEW ENGLAND SUPPER.
The New England Supper Jicld in the
Band Hall , Tuesday evening , by the
Ladies' Union , was eminently success
ful in every particular. By nine of the
clock , the hall was crowded , and the
members of the Union , dressed in the
New England costume of a century
since , were kept busy dishing up Bos
ton baked beans , pumpkins , etc. , not
to make mention of the more modern
and more civilized delicacies with which
the tables were fairly groaning. Many
of our people took supper there , and
many after eating at home and coming
to the hall to take a peep , were tempt
ed to ' 'fall to" and partake of the ele
gant repast spread before them. The
ladies had made juost extensive and
complete preparations for the event ,
and were ready for the crowd which
thronged the hall.
The room was prepared to represent
one of the olden times , and with the
stringed pumpkins , spinning wheels ,
old dishes , and the numerous other
articles of a hundred years ago , ladies
and gentlemen in appropriate dress ,
made a scene not unlike one in the time
of George and Martha. Mrs. Batchc-
lor and Mrs. Green , as Aunts Jcrusha
and Hannah , were immense , and the
source of much merriment. Dr. John
son and Mrs. Gump scored quite a
"hit'1 as George and Martha. Uncle
Jed. was there in the person of "the
funny man , " which is good and suffi
cient evidence that that character was
admirably sustained. The noble red
men , Messrs. Byron and Kelly , gave
color to the scene , as well as liveliness.
Among the many articles on exhibi
tion , a very few of which we were able
to make a note , were : Old and hand
some dishes from England and Bel
gium ; a beautiful set of dishes 100
years old by Mrs. Meservc ; Mr. Buck's
file of the New York Gazette , embrac
ing the years of 1758-59 , printed while
the stamp act was in force , each having
the crown stamped thereon ; a news
paper containing an account of Wash
ington's death ; a box made from a piece
of the historic ; 'Charter Oak" by 3Irs.
Hollister ; a plate 120 years old by Mrs.
C. II. Heed ; a cake basket 100 years
old by Mrs. T. G. llees ; Dr. Willey
exhibited a Jaw book 100 years old ; two
books , written by Abbe LePluehe in
1741 ; salt seller 100 years old by Miss
Nellie Fisher ; Mrs. Buck exhibited a
wheel-boy and wool cards , 73 years old ,
some coin , a piece of bark from an N.
E. Indian canoe and a specimen of
knitting done by children in a mission
school in the Isle of Ceylon ; a cute
little German lantern of the modest age
of 80 years. We have- attempted to
give but a few of the many articles , all
of which , were notable.
The ladies of the Union should feel
proud of the success of their entertain
ment , for an unqualified success it was.
The band boys "surprised" the ladies
by discoursing a number of pieces of
music before the hall in the early part
of the evening , for which delightful
music the ladies return their hearty
thanks. The amount realized from the
supper , over and above all expenses ,
Wcis $50,00 , which the ladies consider
"pretty good. "
