Measles are existing in this town and
vicinity in a malignant form. A. P.

a serious attack.
Dr. T. B. Stutzman hangs his card
on the outer wall this week , and solicits
a share of patronage , wh.ch his ability
will doubtless command.

arrived from Council Bluffs , Iowahave ,

A number of catle were shipped in
from Iowa , Sunday , and were driven
down on the Beaver. Almost every
week marks the arrival of a bunch of
cattle from the east.
Parties wishing to purchase a first-
class machine can be accommodated by
calling on John A. Lee , who has the
agency for the celebrated Wheeler &
Wilson Sewing Machines.
A number of car-loads of household
goods were received at this station dur
ing the week , and there are more to
follow. A very few years will show
a wonderful change in this country.
D. Kendall is having a large addition
built on to the south side of his resi '
dence on Madison street , indeed it looks
as though the addition were larger than
the present structure. And thus the
march of improvement goes on.
Parties from Iowa whose names we
have not learned , are making brick at
their } rard south of the round-house.
Good brick are in great demand and
will bring a big price. The demand now
is far in excess of the production.
The improvement and building spirit
affects all parts of our town alike.
Adolph "Fullgrabe has a two-story stone
house well under way in South McCook.
Adolph is a master mechanic in stone
work and is putting up a good building.
Mr. Rider commenced the erection of
a neat house on the brow of the hill in
West McCook , Wednesday morning.
It is one of a number of houses of
square design which H. C. has been
building in that part of town , this spring.
A mule team succeeded in breaking
A wheel off the wagon to which they
were attached , upsetting and otherwise
demolishing the same , before Starbuck
Bros. ' feed store , Wednesday evening ,
by some characteristic gyrations.
Things are becoming interesting at
the county-seat ; in fact , are fast approaching
preaching that felicitous social state in
which "the lion and the lamb lie down
together. " We see the dim , dusky out
lines of a negro of large proportions in
the wood pile.
We are pleased to note all evidences
of prosperity among our people. The
Probst Bros. , who came to McCook ,
last fall , are building up a good busi
ness. They have commenced building
a stable , and will soon start a delivery
We have received a considerable
amount of seeds from our Junior Sen
ator , Chas. Mandcrson , which we have
been requested to distribute. We will
do so to those calling at this office. H
you know of any deserving homestead
ers send them in.
The building on East Dennison street
erected by Conductor Morris is to be
occupied by Line Repairer Thompson
of Red Cloud. We thought'Mr. Morris
was feathering that nest for himself
and , but we were mistaken , al
though this is leap year.
It seems to be impossible to provide
residences fast enough for the rapidly
increasing population of McCook , so
that some of the abandoned sod houses
scattered around on the outskirts of our
town have been resurrected from their
state of delapidation and made ready
We can see no other probable result.
Our people are long-suffering if they
are anything , and something will drop
and heavily if there is not some
radical improvement in a certain direc
tion. There is that at stake which can
not much longer be neglected.
Don't forget that Menard's Opera
tfall , the best arranged and fitted hall
for theatrical purposes in the Republi
can Valley , will be opened by the Plun-
kett Sisters on the 16th of May. Tick
ets are on sale at the Citizens Bank.
Be prepared to fill the hall to over-
Bowing. A fine program will be pre
sented on that occasion.
We direct attention to the large , >
business-like advertisement of Wilcox ;
Bros , to be found on our eighth page.
These young men come into our com
munity well recommended , and have
opened up a fine line of dry goods at
their place of business on West Denni
son street , where they will be pleased'
to see you. Give them a call.
There are but 14 postal clerks on this
route , and not 24 as stated last week.
One of the clerks also informs us that
they need two more clerks to handle the
immense amount of papers and letters
carrind through to Colorado , and that
the cars now on the run afford poor fa
cilities for handling the mail. They
have the promise of better cars from
the Q. soon.
It now appears that the young man
Bitner , who committed suicide near
Cornell , on the Driftwood , had become
enamored with a , neighbor's wife , and
had sustained improper relations with
her. That on the evening of the day
before he committed the terrible act ,
they quarreled. He was a single man ,
and was engaged in sheep raising on
Dr. Hewitt , of Friend , Neb. , of the
firm of Sugdcn Bros. & Hewitt , arrived
'here on Sunday last. They own the "I.
X. L " brand of cattle. The Dr. started
on his return , on Tuesday morning , for
McCook , with R. F. Crooch. The team
ran away and after plunging through a
wire fence two or three times and bang
ing things up generally , the Dr. made
the trip to Culbertson with the mail-
carrier , and Mr. Crooch returned to
town. Atwood Citizen.
What has become of the railroad
crossing , east of town , which was to be
put in as soon as spring opened up and
the frost was out of the ground ? This
condition now exist , but the crossing
does not. As we have suggested a
number of times the present route to
the bridge is a round-aTwmt one , and in
convenient to put it mild , and many
miles of unneccessary traveling , in the
aggregate , can be dispensed with by
putting in this crossing , and we again
direct the attention of the proper au
thorities to the matter.
We had the- pleasure of an enjoyable
ride up Ash Creek , Tuesday afternoon ,
in company with Dr. Johnson. On ev
ery hand were farmers plowing and "pre
paring for crops. New houses and im
provements of different kinds were no
ticeable , and the country presentea
withal an unusually stirring appearance.
Let the good work continue , and Red
Willow county will blossom , can't help it.
Ira G. Wickwire died at his residence ,
about 4 miles north of town , Monday
night. Mr. Wickwire has been ailiug
all winter , and his constitution.had be
come greatly debilitated. He was tak
en down with the measles , which , with
the attending catarrhal trouble , proved
to much for his weakened condition ,
and death came swiftly to his relief.
His brother Nathan 0. , who lives in the
extreme southern part of the county ,
was sent for Tuesday morning. He ar
rived just in time for the funeral , which
took place at the cemetery , west of town.
We < present on our first page an ac
count of the recent trouble in the Wola-
bach family who live just across the
county line in Decatur county. The
boy is now kept chained at night , and
will be sent to the House of Correction
as soon as the papers are received. We
have it from a near neighbor that the
father of the family is one of the worst
men in his family he has ever known ,
and that his brutal treatment of this
12 year old boy led his son to attempt
to kill him. Under the circumstances
it is rather to be regretted that the fath
er's injuries were not more severe.
To be sure any business man has a
perfect right to have his job work done
awajr from home , even if his local office
can do it equally as well , and as cheap ,
and we know of no constitutional amend
ment prohibiting him from not patron
izing his local paper and advertising in
any other county paper , but is such a (
course based on correct business print
eiples ? How many hundred dollars ±
worth of merchandise would such business -
ness men sell in a year , if the same
business ( ? ) principles were similarly
ipplied in their own cases ? "We have
10 cause of complaint , and would not
make such grievance known in this
nanner if we had one. It has been our
sndeavor to print a local paper worthy
) f support and how far we have suc-
icerted is for our people to decide. We
lave done as iittle soliciting as possi-
) le , hoping to MEIIIT support , and such
hall ever be our rule. We suggest this
o those who seem by their actions to
\ivor foreign more than home industries. ITo
An exchange puts it in this sensible
ivay : "Nothing presents a sadder corn-
uentary upon the present condition of
society than th'e large number of fami-
ies , both in town and in the country ,
nit more especially in the latter , that
subscribe to no paper of any kind.
Many families are thus growing up ut-
; erly ignorant of what is transpiring in
; ho world around them ignorant of
the mighty events of the day and age
in which they live. But who can tell
the vast amount of injury that is being
inflicted upon the rising generation
those who are to take our place in the
busy world at no distant day are grow
ing up without any knowledge of the
present , or any study of the past ; this
ignorance , too , being imbued into them
by the sanction of those who should
and doubtless do know better , did they
only think of the injurious effects of
their course. Let the head of every
family think of this , and let him place
iu the hands of those for whom he is
responsible the means of acquiring some
knowledge of the moving panorama iu
which we act our different parts. "

A BILL was introduced in the House , .

end to the crowding , shoving and
bustle which is so common on all railroad -
road trains to obtain scats. The bill
provides that no person will be required
to pay fare on any public conveyance
unless he is furnished a seat. The percent

would submit to the inconvenience of
standing to save fare is very large.

that it was very lucky that the people

many examples recently set in their

about all the lynching that ought to
nave been done was when the old man
was strung up. If those who perform
