doctor was in the scheme , and , not be
ing a woman , he kept the secret well ;
and when the neighbors and friends of
Mrs. Green appeared , her surprise was
complete. The evening was passed
very pleasantly , and , dancing being in
augurated , it was kept up till a late

A disposition to incorporate McCook
has been growing among our business
men for some months , and the time
has now come for them to act. The
advantages of incorporation are many ,
and we shall not attempt to enter into
particulars. The County Commission
ers meet in Indianohi on the 6th of
October , and if McCook is to be incor
porated this fall , the petition should be
presented at that time. Let some one
interesfed in the prosperity of our city
prepare a petition , and in half a day he
can have the requisite number of signa
tures. Act at once.

Our County Fair.
The premiums offered by the manag
ers of our county fair are very liberal
and should bring out a good exhibit.
But even if there were no premiums
offered the producers and stockmen of
Red Willow should take sufficient in
terest in the fair to make it a success
by exhibiting the best productions of
their farms or herds. It is to be hoped
that this view will be taken by the people
ple of the county , and the fair be made
a success in every particular.
