A prominent attorney of Hastings
enjoyed himself with a quiet little flirta
tion on board a B. & M. tram one "day
last week , with three ladies who were
out for a good time. The ladies were
evidently looking for a fourth person
to make up a whist party and the attor
ney , who is as gallant as he is good look
ing , promptly introduced himself and
the game commenced. After the game
had progressed some little time , the la
dies suggested liquid refreshments , and
from a lunch basket fished out a large
bottle which atone time contained Hos-
tetter ' s bitters ; but from the zest with
which she enjoyed the beverage , some
thing more exhileratingthan Hostetter's
bitters had been substituted for the
original contents of the bottle. The at
torney was asked to refresh himself but
( irmly declined. Pulling a well-thumb
ed newspaper from his pocket , he marked
an article and handed it to his fair temp
tress for her perusal. The article was

The present dry weather has turned
the thoughts of the farmers of this sec
tion towards irrigation and a company
with a capital of $100,000 has been
formed at Holyoke , Colo. , to secure
practical irrigation if possible. It pro
poses to construct a canal ninety miles
long from the Platte river and use the
storage reservoir plan. Our country
has been settled long enough to cer
tainly establish the fact that a very
small amount of irrigation , added to
the rainfall , will secure a large crop
every year. Oar soil is as good as any
in the state and if the scheme can be
made a success our section will develop
into as good a farming country as can
be found in the west. Journal.

our esteemed fellow townspeople , Mr

C. aud G. A. R. Post , tho latter ol
which Mr. Paine has been a valued
member since its organization in the
city and has added much to its prosper
ity by his untiring energy and wise
counsel. Mrs. Paine was a chartei
member of the W. R. C. in McCook anc
since its institution has shown her love
for the order by her untiring zeal it
building it up. Last December , she
was elected president over its delibera
tions. She has presided with a won
derful degree of tact and ability and te
her wise counsel and kind words is due
largely the wonderful growth of the W ,
R. C. From a mere few , she has , ir
the short time that she has beei. ' presi
dent , built up the lodge until it. nov
numbers more than fifty of the besi
ladies of the city. When it was knowr
she Was soon to sever her connection
with the W. R. C.the ladies decided tc
give her a farewell banquet. They fix
ed on last Monday evening , it being the
last meeting which Mrs. Paine woule
attend , and invited Mrs. Morgan , Depart
ment President , to visit the Post on tha
evening. That noted lady came in or
the 11:40 train and in tho afteruooi
tables were arranged in the G. A. R
room. The hour arrived for the Posi
meeting , Mrs. Paine called the W. R. C
to order , not thinking of the surprise
awaiting her in the adjoining room
The business of the Post being com
pleted , the ladies were invited to join thi
G. A. R. in a social meeting. Wher
once in the Post room and the ladie :
seated , Sutton's band , which had beer
previously invited , rendered some excel
lentmusic after which Mrs. Morgan anc
Mrs. Paine were escorted to the stane
and Mrs Paine , in a few well ohoscn
remarks , presented to Mrs. Morgan s
handsome glass and silver fruit baske
as a token of esteem in which that ladj
is held by the ladies of McCook , to whicl
she repled. Scarcely had she closed hei
words of thanks when Mrs. Fowler step
ped forward and with words of love anc
esteem , presented Mrs. Paine with a verj
elegantsilvercard receiver. Both ladies
showed their complete surprise in theii
acceptance and thanks. Refreshments
then being ready , the seventy-five oi

unanimous verdict as to the ability oi

ent a telegram to the convention of the Sec-
md district , yesterday , declining to allow his
lame to be used as a candidate for renoml-
lation , there was a general and deep regret
expressed by his associates here. Mr. Laws
las done excellent work , and while he has
> een quiet about it and has made no noise ,
le has secured for himself a ground work of
egislative education which , with another
erm , could not have failed to have been of
snormous benefit to the state. His removal
xoni the arena of legislative matters retires
i faithful public servant from the service of
he state , and while his successor may be j
: qually good he will labor under the disad-
rantage of lacking the experience which Mr.
Laws has been securingduringthepast eight
n onths. Wash. Cor. in to-day's Journal.
