McCook was quite enlivened during the first of the week by the delegations from Culbertson , Benkelman , Stratton , Haigler , and other towns. Our ice men are busily engaged in putting up ice for the coming summer. The ice on the Republican is 13 inches in thickness and fair in quality.

Wilson of the Tennesseeans ren dered some vocal music handsomely , and Mr. Baker's violin playing was un questionably fine. McCook can cal together as much musical talent on shor notice as any town in the Valley. A prophet is not without honor save in his own country. The Echo recently published the history , growth , etc. , of Franklin county , and received this encouragement : As an appreciation of our efforts * t < give a correct discription , history am "Towth of Franklin , one of our mer ch ts orders.all his locals and standing advertisement out.

The rink has been closed. The last skating , was engaged in Wednesday night. The skates are offered for sale is see notice elsewhere in this issue. We always keep a number of extra copies of THE TRIBUNE to accommo date parties who wish to send the news of this locality to their friends in the East. We arc under obligation to J. P. Is rael for a splendid turkey roast which we enjoyed at his restaurant , Wednes day. Mr. Israel is getting things in good shape , and will do well in this new venture. The people of McCook ought to adopt a standard time. As matters stand now we have at least three different stand ards of time , central , mountain and local. Adopt one of these standards central would doubtless be the best and we will have some uniformity in time where general demoralization now reigns. Just a few words to those desiring job work : We do not claim to be able to do work as low as large , wholesale publishing houses we make no such silly claim but we do claim to do neat and tasty job work at a fair price , and are not ashamed to show our specimens of work , which has been giving satis faction. Call and see. A. E. Lytle has gone to Chicago to purchase a stock of hardware , stoves , etc. . we are informed , which he intends to open at McCook in the building re cently occupied by C. H. Rogers. Art is a practical tinner and hardware man , having been "raised" in the business at his former home , Quincy , Mien. , and if there is any advantage in that he will have his share of the trade. Culbertson Sun. The coldest probably during "the late unpleasantness" of the weather was 18 degrees below zero , which the ther mometers indicated early Monday morn ing. There was little or no wind and it could hardly be realized that the tem perature was even * down to zero. We have reason to congratulate ourselves here in the Upper Republican valley , when we read of the terrible weather they have been experiencing east and north and west. We have been having mild weather in comparison with the rigorous winter they are having. Considerable loss of stock is reported as having occurred during the storm. In part from lack of water the Repub lican and many of the small streams which run through this section of coun try being frozen over making the sup ply of water uncertain and difficult of access. All cattle that were fat fared well , but the lean , weak ones will num ber fewer than before the storm. Those of our stock men who gathered up the poorer cows in the fall and have been feeding and in a manner sheltering them have sustained little if any loss at all. But the Btorm king hns gathered home a good many of the ill-conditioned ones out on the larger ranches. At the regular election of the Union Sunday School , last Sabbath , Mrs. Clark was re-elected Superintendent ; Miss Ida Hollister was elected Assistant Super intendent ; Miss Mabel Meserve was reelected - elected Secretary ; Mrs. Nobel will take care of the funds , and Mrs. Dungan takes charge of the singing. The re ports of the teachers show progress and creat increase in attendance from a small beginning of 12 pupils. Mrs. Nobel reported Laura Ferguson , Ella McCoikhill , Eva Hurd and Theo. Laws as being present every Sunday during the past quarter. The School enters upon the new year with bright prospects for active work among the young people ( and the older as well ) of McCook. Any person -wishing to buy a pair of [ toiler Skates , can do so by calling at 5. & M. Pharmacy. The Board of Commissioners met on Tuesday. Commissioner H. H. Pickens retiring , and S. L. Green , of McCook , assuming the duties of his office. F. J. Taylor , Mayor of CrcstonIowa , who recently made McCook a flying visit , has the following to say about the most promising city in the Republican Vailey. He mentions a few of her nttractions : "I was as far west as McCook. Just one year has passed between my visits there. I can tell you , McCook has grown wonderfully in that time. It now has a round house of fifteen stalls ; lias established water works , so there is not a house in town which cannot have water in the garret if they wish it. They have a skating rink there , a danc ing hall , and a good many fine dwell ings , that of Supt. Campbell being es pecially worthy of note , and ] will say McCook has one of the finest brass bands in the state , being composed of fourteen pieces , well uniformed , and which discorses some of the finest mu sic 1 ever heard. McCook is really a thriving young city. " The business of selling western lands on fraudulent deeds in the east seems to be extensively carried on by those who hove embarked in the enterprise. We scarcely pick up a western exchange but what sonic transaction of this kind is being ventilated by the press. The latest that has come under our observa tion was a deal made in Hitchcock county lands by one of these sharks. Chas. Walters and wife sold to M. Mar quis , of Holmsville , Ohio , the south half section 9 , town 1 , range 35 west. Consideration $1,000. The dcod , which , even to a casual observer , was a fraud upon its face , was sent to Clerk Perry to be recorded , who , no doubt , has in formed the purchaser that he has been victimized. The land is on the south side of the Republican , close to the town of Stratton , and in a strip of country where there is nothing but sand hills and utterly worthless except for graz ing purposes. The government officers are well aware of these fraudulent sales , but what steps , if any , have been taken to apprehend the rascals and stop the business is not known. At all events , the gang ought to be broken up. Cul bertson Sun. The Tennesseeans. The colored concert company sang to crowded houses both Monday and Tues day nights. The } ' came to McCook well recommended by the press , the pulpit and the people , and their singing was well , nay , enthusiastically received by their audiences at both of their con certs. And judging from the unstintec plaudit they received , have establish er themselves with our people. Like al similar companies , they have one or two prominent features. In this instance , Mr. Wilson , the tenor soloist , and Mr. Hagennan , the jumbo basso , are the mofat praiseworthy. Wilbon certainly has a fine voice and his execution is good , in fact few concert companies have tenors who equal him. Then comes the heavy villain bass , we mean. Hag ennan has a phenomenal voice , but he resorts to , some villainous bellowing that would do justice to a yearling pteer , which does not add to his otherwise good singing. Quality , not quantity We have the same criticism that has probably been made against them be fore , the male portion almost drown out the female voices thus in a 'great measure detracting from the effect oJ their chorus singing. Moderato. The Tennesseeans are one of the strongest companies in their line traveling. REMOVED ! Having purchased the entire restau rant business of Gump & Cole , I have moved my stock of Groceries into their old stand , one door south of Post-office and I desire to inform the public , anc especially my patrons , that I will con tinue the business , and will be founc with a full stock of goods always ready to await upon you.
