Mr. Tom MoUartncy had Che pleas- nre of showing his mother , who stop ped off to BCC him on her way home from San Francisco , and his beautiful little neice around the city on Saturday. He accompanied them as far as Indian and remained there over Sunday. The B. & M. band of Plattsmouth , Nebraska , passed through the city on No. 1 , Tuesday evening , en route for Denver and the mountains. This is what is termed General Manager Hoi- dredge's band , it being ' 'omposed of the painters in the B. & bl. shops. They were provided with passes and a special car and seemed to be enjoying them selves , They discoursed a couple of beautiful pieces at our depot , and prom ised to stop over a day in McCook on their return. Our boys must prepare to give them a suitable reception. Work was resumed on the tank to supply McCook with water on Satur day last , and the indications are fail- that it will be pushed until the water works are completed. The completion of the water system will give our little city a now impetus , and will attract strangers into our midst. It will be but a short time until McGook will do the largest business , and contain the largest population in the valley. The rapid growth of McCook , the enter prise of her citizens , and the natural beauty of her location are matters of wonder to the strangers who daily get off at the station. 3IcCook possesses all the natural advantage necessary to the growth of a large city , and there can Le no doubt but that she will grow at such a rate in the next two years that her population will run up into the thousands. Live , energetic men are wanted here , and they will be warm ly welcomed and well treated. Tne Bridge Assured. Pursuant to call in last week's TRIB- UNK , the subscribers to the Bridge Fund met at the office of J. B. Meserve ou Saturday afternoon , and , after can vassing the ground thoroughly , voted to locate the bridge on the half section line just south of the town. That evening a party consisting of the Coun ty Surveyor , the B. & M. Engineer and J. E. Bergcr , went down to the river and made a preliminary survey. They found an eligible location about twenty- five rods east of the line , with good banks and approaches on both sides , and a distance of only two hundred and seventy feet across. At the meeting a commit'oe consisting of J. B. Me serve and C. F. Babeock , was appoint ed to go to Lincoln and confer with the Lincoln Land Company. Mr. Meserve , of that committee , returned home on Tuesday evening , and he stated to the writer that there was every prospect of the bridge being built at an early date , that the indications were fair that the B. & M. Railroad Co. would build the bridge , the absence of Mr. Holdredge in Dakota leaving the question open , but that if the Railroad company could not spare the men to build the bridge , it would haul the the timbers free. The Lincoln Land Company also agreed to increase their subscription $200 , if necessary , and otherwise aid in its con struction. Our readers will readily see that the bridge is assured , and , ' the ad vantages to be derived from it are so many that we will not stop to particu larize. _ A Fowl Assassination. As a young man , connected with the Train Despatches office in this city , was wending his way home on Monday night , he was attacked b some un known foe in a manner that threatened his life. Knowing that self preserva tion was one of the inalienable rights of mankind , he quietly drew his weapon pen of defense and with one blow , slew his assailant. Remorse then capturing his soul , he carried it into the B. & M. Eating House , and the following day he and the genial landlord dined off of it. The query now is , was it one of Mr. Sander's chickens , or did it be long to somebody elsa. I. 0. 0. F. McCooK , Sept 13th ' 83. All Odd Fellows of good standing are requested to meet at B. & 31. Phar macy , nest Thursday evening , Sept. 20. The Htsiings Re-Union. The G. A. R. re-uni < yi ut Hastings , last week , attracted the largest crowd of the people that was ever in Adams county at any time since its organiza tion. The trains leading to that city were crowded to their full capacity from Monday until Thursday , with ex- soldiers , civilians , w omen and children The number of band * , too , which were in attendance was wonderful , and the sound of music never ceated. The camp was pitched on a level plain about two miles from the city , and the snowy tents as seen when approaching it presented a pleasing appearance. The men and children , however , on the broad avenues robbed it ot the marked distinction of a military camp , and many an old veteran remarked that it was not much like war times. The at tendance was variously estimated at from thirty-five to sixty thousand people ple , the larger majority of whom came from Nebraska , but there was quite a fair sprinkling from other states , some few coming from as far as New York. The B. & M. management sent 20,000 trip tickets from Hastings to the en campment grounds , supposing that would be sufficient. Thursday morning the agent at that point was obliged to re-issue 18,000 tickets , and ex'pressed the opinion that 50,000 tickets would be required before Saturday night , making the receipts for the plug train $6,000. That the re union was a good advertisement for Nebraska is patent , and a number of parties who came from eastern states returned home to pack up and move to prosperous Nebraska , where the willing workman can always line his pockets with money. The G. A. R. post at Indianola , un der the command of C. D. Cramer , turned out in strength , and together with the McCook Liirht Guard Band , represented Red Willow county in a manner that was creditable to them selves and the county. The re-union itself was a success in numbers , but there was a lack of en tertainment which detracted from its pleasures. A year ago at Grand Island a great many of the prominent men of the state , not a few of whom had polit- icial aspirations , took an active part , and different ingenious means were tak en to entertain the crowd ; this year that element was missed , and the labor de volved upon younaer men who lacked the experience necessary to meet the requirements of the occasion. The action of the people of Hasting was far from creditable. Instead of hospit ably opening their doors , and endeav oring to entertain the strangers they had invited to come to their city , they each one vied one with another to see how much money they could fleece from the crowd. The city officials also showed their moial turpitude by allow ing , gambling devices of various kinds to be conducted openly on her streets and in public places. Hastings has made some money , but she has estab lished a reputation that will be hard to live down. SPECIAL NOTICE.
