A Perkins county publisher has been corresponding with Register Hin man relative to the establishment in this' city of a democratic paper. -F. R Bui lard haa recently been making some additions to his green house and he now has a veritable crystal palace at the rear of his residence. Photographer Broach, .accompanied by Messrs. Park, Barnum and Seeberger,' were up along the old ditch yesterday taking views to be used in the immigra tion pamphlet. Robert Mason returned Monday from Texas, after nearly a year's ab sence. He reports business looking up in that section, and will return there in about ten days. The 628 came out of the shops a few days ago after receiving some light re pairs and being repainted, and Fred rick son caught a passenger run the first rattle out of the box. The Tribune has heard the names of Miss W. E. Hesa and Harvey Swafth out mentioned as candidates for the po sition of member of board of education. Each is qualified for the position. The new men Geo. H. and Will H. Daly have taken hold of the McPherson County lews with a vim and energy which bids fair to make it a more inter esting local paper than ever before. Mr! and Mrs. Guy Laing gave a dinner party Friday, the guests includ ing Col. and Mra Cody,-Mr. and Mrs. Bradford, of Denver, Mrs. Boal, Misses Hail and McGee, and several young men. Messrs. Ridgley, Elliott and Ed monds who represented the L. L. A. of this city in the joint debate with the Brady Islanders Saturday night, met a Waterloo, but like the old guard they fought to the bitter end. So say we all of us: "It strikes ub that if the postal department would change the Tryon postal route to come from North Platte instead of from Gandy it would be a great convenience to the people of this county. McPherson Co. News. Second quarterly meeting at the Methodist Episcopal church Sunday, March 17th. Love feast at 10 a. m. Our Lord's supper at the close of the, even ing service.

The re maining eleven, two each week, will b published, after which the premium will be awarded by three disinterested judges who will not know the'authors. Died, March 8tb, at her father's home near Somerset, Mrs. Lydia Ratliff. aged 16 years. A large number of friends attended the funeral on Saturday, the 9th, conducted by Rev. W. E. Hard away. Mrs. Ratliff leaves a baby two weeks old, a heart broken husband and many inenas to mourn. Tne remains were buried at Wellfleet. J. Linn Torrey, of Wyoming, was in the city yesterday examining some of the fine horses at Col. Cody's ranch, with a view to purchasing the same. He was formerly a prominent attorney of St. Louis, Mo., occupying a position upon the bench, and is the author Of what is known as the Torrey bank ruptcy bill. He is an old friend of John L. Minor, of this city. w On last Friday evening a goodly number of neighbors met at Syl Friend's house and then proceeded to the home of Joe Weeks' and gave him and his es timable wife a surprise. The surprise was a complete one to Mr. and Mrs, Weeks, but they quickly rallied and entertained the guests in a very pleas ant manner. After spending several hours in playing cards and other games, a nice lunch was served. Engines 435, 587 and 1302 are in the city to-day eu route for the Oregon Short Line. They are a miscellaneous looking job lot, and must havebeen in use on some backwoods branch, as they have not been visible on the main line for years. The second one enumerated was run.out of this station years ago by the late Barney McDonald. The last one mentioned is a huge rebuilt slack- burner and on a level track has a capac ity ot a solid mile oLcars. I. A. Fort received thjp week a cir cular from Chas. W. Irish, chief of the irrigation department, discribing a crim son clover, cow peas and white oats. These plants, so Mr. Irish states, are splendidly adapted to the semi-arid regions of the west. Mr. Irish states that he will forward a few samplps for distribution to Mr. Fort. If the cow peas could be made to take the place of the wild peas that grow on oar sandy lands, they might be of some benefit rto the lighter soils of Lincoln comity. While in Omaha recentlv division superintendent W. L. Park made ar rangements whereby the Belgian min ister to the United States will be brought -to North Platte when he is making a tour under instructions from his government to look out a location for the establishment of a colony of hie countrymen. It is said that the colony consists of farmers who have means to purchase their lands, and as this is a desirable class of immigrants who readi ly adopt American customs and methods nnd at once become amenable to our laws, it behooves our immigration so ciety, as well as all our people, to keen this matter in view. Mrs. W- O. fftsaer, who has been visiting the family of A. A. Davis, left this morning for a month's visit at Hooper, Neb.. The question at issue in the school elect ioa should be "schoolhouse" or "anti-schoolhouse," and the former should carry by a large majority. Otto Steuve, the delivery boy at Baskin's meat market, yesterday suc ceeded in getting his hand in a sausage machine and had it badly mangled. -The Tribune will this week print a large number of contracts between the proprietors of the "Wild West" show and the Indians who will participate therein. j A Mr. Sims, ot Kem precinct, has been furnished credentials by the county officials, and started this morn ing for Missouri in que6t'of seed grain and-feed. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bradford, of Denver, who have been visiting Mrs, Bradford's brother, Col. Cody, for the last two weeks, will return to Denver to-morrow.

The land office department has re fused tohave a small, island down near the McPherson reservation surveyed and platted because it is not at all sea sons separated from the main land.

It appears that the price of this amount of corn has been raised ready for its purchase, but the local relief committee think that the money would be of more service to it just at present, than the corn, as other supplies are needed for which it has no funds to purchase. The blue-bird is hailed as a harbinger of spring. It is also a reminder that a blood-purifier is needed to prepare the aystem for the debilitating weather to come.
