In view of the unexceptional weathei
we are enjoying in the Valley , and th (
cold and stormy weather of which w (
have reports from individuals in low ;
and other states cast , we feel constrain
ed to make some remarks. We hav <
a letter from a gentleman of centra
Iowa stating that the weather was verj
cold and stormy , the thermometer beinj
as low as 20 degress below zero , whil <
we have not had a day when the ther
momcter has reached zero. The ranch
men report their cattle as doing finely
and as being in good condition.
The skating rink was the all absorb
ing attraction on Christmas day , anc
enabled many a poor unfortunate t <
wile hours that would otherwise hav <
been a burden to him. The floor was
filled from early morn till night with s
crowd 'of merry skaters , having lots oi
fun , sometimes at the expense of others
but then enjoying it all the more. Jusl
a woid to those who skate so recklessly
The room is small and some , people
don't care to risk their limbs while sue !
skating is indulged in. Out of respecl
and consideration for the many ladies
who are making complaint , these par
ties should moderate , and try the rol (
of gentlemen a while.
There is no day that is so universally
celebrated by all Christendom as Christ
mas ; and very properly so , as there it
no day so pregnant with hallowed asao
ciations , BO fraught with good to all
men , as the one upon which we com
memorate the advent of the Redeemer
of the world. Rightly do all people ,
the Christian as well as the moralist ,
make this the day of unrestrained joy
and rejoicing. Christmas day was very
generally observed in McCook , and all
the places of business being closed had
a rather Sabbath-day-like aspect , with
but an occasional fire cracker explosion
to break the silence. A number of per
sons entertained their friends , and the
less fortunate consoled themselves with
a chunk of sweitzer and a glass of beer.
Many handsome presents were given
and received , and on the whole the day
was one filled with many pleasant
SUNDAY SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.
The Congregational Church was lit
erally packed , Christmas eve , during
the exercises of the children of the
Union Sunday School. The church had
been very tastefully decorated with
proper and befitting banners , mottoes ,
strings of pop corn , and other pleasing
devices , together with the large house
filled with presents , and presented
withal a bright , holiday-like appearance.
The exercises were opened by song and
prayer. After which Selma Noren de-
clamed "Hang up the Baby's Stock
ings" in a very pretty manner. An
them , "Glory to God in the Highest , "
by the choir. Recitation by little Norma
Noble , which was nicely spoken. A
song by the infant class , "Good Saint
Nick , " was sung "with the spirit , " and
we apprehend " 'with the understanding
also. " Next on the program for the
evening was the search for St. Nick ,
the discovery of the same by a delega
tion of the children , Mabel Meserve ,
Selma Noren and Ida Hurd , who in
dulged in a dialogue during their search
through fairyland. The Saintly Nick
finally materalized in the person of our
genial lightning manipulator , J. F.
Forbes , who with the assistance of
Masters Norman Forbes and Dun
gan , dispensed a large number of pres
ents , of varying good looks and cost to
the expectant children and adults to
gether assembled. Apropos we must
not forget to return our heartiest to the
kind stranger who , taking into consid
eration the "lost and helpless estate' '
of our linen , did us so proud.
"I can no other answer make , but , thanks.
And thank * , and erer thanks ; Of ten good tnrna
Are shuffled off with undercurrent pay ;
But , were wy worth , as my conscience , firm ,
You should find better dealing. "
The decorations were made in good
taste , and the children performed their
parts in a manner which showed care
ful training and preparation by the
teachers of the school , and the enter
tainment was one of pleasure to alland , z
very proper commemoration of an evenl
which means so much to all people.

L. Morse , one of Benkelman's prom

McCook , and during a conversation
with him , Mr. Morse expressed the opin

timber-culture laws would be advan
tageous to all. That in that emergency ,
the ranchmen would probably receive
the legislation they wanted an oppor
tunity to purchase the land which
would in a measure do away with the
immense ranches which are now con
ducted on government land , for which
the government receives no compensa

A very enjoyable dance by the Social
Club occurred Wednesday night.
THE EPISCOPAL SOCIAL.
A brilliant party turned out on Fri
day evening to the Social held by the
Episcopal ladies in the Dining Hall.
The Band with their usual generosity
met at the Hall and played a number
of selections on the porch before the
same , and afterwards a grand march in
the Dining Room. The mnrch finally
merged into a waltz. The music was
highly appreciated by all present , being
well executed throughout , except that
the waltz was too slow. The dancing
was continued until about 24 o'clock ,
when refreshments were served. It
seems to be prcsumptious to say any
thing on this score , for what town in
the valley or state can excel our ladies
in this line ? And on this occasion
they rather excelled themselves , and
their edibles were devoured with great
gusto. After the remains of the feast
had been cleared away the dancing was
continued until the "wee small hours of
the morn , " when the assembly retired
to their homes.
P. S. One suggestion which we be
lieve will add to the enjoyment of allen
on sucli occasions , at least to the ma
jor portion : Eschew displaying your
forensic inclinations during the dance ,
and bebate as to whether the caller was
right or wrong the following morning.
