figures. Bent is very high , and carpen
ters are very busy. Monied men are
coming in continually and erecting foi
tbcir business , not the cheap wooden
structures that characterize most new
towns , but handsome , substantial bricks.
Two large churches are being built ; and
sadly are they needed , for verily the
city is a second Nineveh in some re
spects , only she wouldn't repent in forty
years. Already two papers flourish and
disseminate orthodox republicanism , and
Thompson of the Hastings Democrat is
about to start an opposition sheet just
to give the journalistic department in
MeCook a good moral tone.
In the north of town is the U. S. Land
Office. G. L. Laws , register , and C. F.
Babcock , receiver. These gentlemen em
ploy several assistants , yet all are kept
in a fever of dispatch ; for though land
entry is , in a measure , over , the crop of
"final proofs" is coming in in rich
abundance. All applicants here receive
prompt and polite attention. The in
spector was here not long since and can
celed numerous shaky claims.
From MeCook run-stage lines to Ober-
lin and other points south.
McCook's cornet band owns no supe
rior in the state , being composed almost
entirely of professional musicians from
the eastern states , well equipped with
the best instruments. There is also a
line string band in the city.-
Land about here is unexcelled , and
deeded quarters sell at from one to two
ihousancTdollars. Crops are magnificent.
Speculators arc happy. The Star of
Promise beams brightly over all this sec
tion. Time only is needed to'make it
a dcmi-paradise with MeCook , for the

AT the 104th annual announcement
of the Grand Lodge of Free and Ac
cepted Masons of the State of New
York , which convened in the Metropolis ,
Tuesday of the past week , Grand Mas
ter William A. Brodie gave utterance
to the following words concerning the
I believe tbat the honor of our grand old fra
ternity demands that in these days , when infi
delity is rife and when even some so-called Ma-
sonic periodicals make light of that founda
tion stone of Freemasonry belief in the Su
preme Being there should go forth from ofli-
clal sources words on this subject of no uncer
tain sound. If there be no God in Masonry
ly , if belief in God be not the corner stone
upon which Freemasonry is founded then in
deed is it in its decadence and its days are num-
jered. But , brethren , we have not reached this
ow plane. I know that as 1 hero and now put
the question to the more than seven hundred
representatives of lodges in this great juris-
liction , 'In whom do you putyour trust V that
your hearts throb back the answer , 'In God.1
Freemasonry is neither godless nor anti-chris-
tian , nor is it sectarian. It embraces in its
ucmbership men of all creeds and no creed-
Jew , Jlolmmraedan , Christian , all arc found
within its broad fold , but none who do not ac-
uiowledge the existence of a Supreme Being ,
who ruleth all things and to whom all owe al-
egiance. To my Hebrew brother itistheGod
of Israel , to the Mohammedan the God as re
vcaled in the great open book of the starry
decked heavens , to the Christian the God and
Father of our Savior Jesus Christ.
"It has been charged that had they ( the Ma
sons ) courage of their convictions they would
iluck the name of the Supreme Being out of
their ritual. Nothing could be further from
the truth than such an assertion. To eliminate
; he name of the Deity from our ritual would
cave it but an empty shell. Yes , there is room
within our broad fold for those of all creeds
and no.crccd , but our doors are not open to the
atheist , nor is there room within our portals
for him. " _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
W. F. AViiiTE , general passenger and
ticket agent of the Santa Fe road , gives
; his account of the Thomas-cowboy im-
jroglio at Coolidge , last week. It would
ippcar as though the whole transaction
were an advertising dodge on Thomas'
"I have received the details of the affair of
, he cowboys and theThcodore Thomas orches
tra at Coolidge , " said Mr. W. F. White , general
passenger and ticket agent of the Santa Fc
road , yesterday. "The train stopped at Cool-
idgtj fordinner.and remained an hour perhaps.
Among the loungers at the station was an old
man from up the creek , and a half a dozen of
his men , clad , in frontier style and wearing
their revolvers just as they do every day in
the year. They learned who the party was ,
and some of the ladies and gcnticmen convers
ed with them. The boys were very much elat
ed , and agreed to give them a short exhibition
of cowboy tactics , which they did riding in
all manner of positions and shouting and cir
cling around the settlement , which contains
only a few houses. This occupied about five
minutes. When "the exercises" were conclud
ed , the cornet player brought out his instru
ment and gave the boys a "tune. " Theyverc
delighted and cheered the company as the train
pulled out a moment later.
