Investigation discloses the fact that the individuals engaged in trying to smash in the side of the Band Hall during the club dance , Wednesday even ing of last week , were not boys , but the same genus of a ' 'larger growth , " physically , but pigmies mentally , and utterly lacking in good scase. The man ly individuals were arrested and "set tled. " Another such an inexcusable break , and the offenders will be dealt with more rigorously. All those who have land business be fore the Land Office at McCook , Ne braska , or the Department at Wash ington , arc invited to call on or address the undersigned , who has had many years experience in Land Office busi ness , and who will be glad to transact any business in that line , such as con tests , homestead entries , timber-cul ture entries , and special applications , all of which will be done on reasonable terms and entire satisfaction given. J. E. COCIIKAX , 1st Door South U. S. Land Office , 28-tf. McCook , Nebraska. Our people ought to give every en couragement to those coming hero with the intention of farming and stock rais ing. Nothing gives a town more sub stantial aid than a solid farming com munity , and that is what we want and need MORE MKX TO TILL THE SOIL. soil as productive as the best in Nebras ka , which will yield handsomely when properly cultivated. There will beyond a peradventtire be a large influx of people ple into this vicinity early in the spring , and instead of trying to cover up the land in the neighborhood or remaining supinely indifferent , it will be to the interest of everybody to discommode themselves somewhat , and assist in lo cating them on claims , and the harvest will be plentiful. The subject of a new school house is being agitated somewhat. A ne.w school building is a matter of prime im portance to McCook. There arc many ranchmen of wealth who would certain ly make our city their headquarters for a considerable part of the year , if not their permanent abode , if the facilities for schooling their families were such as to make it an object to do so. Our teachers are doing their best , but arc cramped for room , apparatus , etc. , and we are of opinion that McCook has reached that stage when she can afford a large , good and substantial building and we believe the same will be forth coming at an early date a structure in keeping with the town , and of one of which we may be proud. So may it be. The superlative event of the month is the advent of the pay car. No occur rence which is looked forward to with such genuine signs of pleasure trans pires in a railroad town. And when the intelligence is circulated that the rag- car will make McCook at a given hour , the boys gather themselves together , give their pantaloons a hitch , a smile child-like and bland suffuses their coun tenances , and they make a break for the depot. R. R. men in the main are well paid , but "easy come , easy go , " Fcems to be peculiarly appropriate in the major , with some notable excep tions , as will be observed by the man ner in which quite a number are getting to the front , the oosy houses they have builded themselves , the cattle they are accumulating , and the modest bank accounts they are building up , a la TRIBUXE the latter's b. a. being dis tressingly modest. The importance of the event is not magnified over much when we consider that between $15,000 and $18,000 of the total amount of about $30,000 which is monthly paid to the employes of this division , is left behind by Mr. Floyd at this place. PERSONAL SQUIBS. D. M. Toniblin of Arapahoe was in McCook on Friday. C. N. Batchclor is switching in the B. & M. yard at Denver for the present. Mrs. C. D.
