We have seen speci mens of his work , and they indicate that he is an artist of more than aver age taste and execution. Perchance it is. not generally known that there is an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of fire-arms within the corporate limits. A fine of not less than SI , nor more than $100 being at tached. To put it in its mildest form , it is a dangerous amusement. We are not adding names to our list at the rate of one hundred per week , but our list is increasing at'a rate which clearly indicates to our mind that the people of Red Willow county appreciate the efforts being made to produce a good , newsy , local paper. Such is oiu purpose , and we feel assured of T goodly support. A number of cattle are being killed every day on the B. & M. west of Mc Cook. The "Kings of the road" use dvery precaution , but explain matters thus : The trouble seems to be one oi " > prders. Stock never have orders tc make more than 20 miles an hour , and we frequently go 30 better , and as s consequence the ambitious bovine ii summarily bounced. An order recently issued by the B. S M. to the effect that all stock killed on the road west of McCook , in this state must have the hides taken off and plac- cd where an inspector can examine the brand , will meet the approval of a ma jority of the stockmen in this pait oi the state. All differences about owner ship are tlms settled , and .the propei parties are paid for the losses sustain ed. Sun.

The ranch is under thi management of L. B. March. Rev. Dungan , of the Congregationa Church , assisted by Rev. Dean of Bloom ington , and Rev. Bartley of the Metho dist Church , McCook , has been con ducting a revival meeting during tin past week , which , while but few con versions have been consummated , ha been a feast to the professed follower of the meek and lowly Saviour , giviiij them renewed strength , establishini their faith , and has been in many re spects a source of profit to those i attendance. Rev. Dean and Rev. Bart ley formed a happy combination of ser timent and practice , and their word and work will be remembered. There'are two divorce cases on tapi in Red Willow county which will prov most interesting and mayhap warm fc some of the parties interested. Job Plunkett of this city petitions for d vorce from Mary E. Plunkett who r < sides in Indiana , on the grounds c adultery. The second case is that c J. M. Plunkett , also of McCook , wh petitions for divorce from Elizabet Plunkett , a resident of the Hoosic State , on the ground of extreme cruelt and irnpatency. The facts in these case we will refrain from mentioning ] ust z this stage. One of the same we hav from the best authority. Mrs. Job Plunkett of Montgomery county , Ind ana , wife of John Plunkett has frv children dependent upon her , and sli is now in destitute circumstances , an her husband whom she has been und ( the impression was in Denver , in tli mining" business , has been living i McCook all the time , paying the gallar to another.

We had a fire this morning about ! o'clock , which might have proven mor serious in its results had the same oc curred during the night. Mr. Farley' kitchen was the scene. The stove pip runs up through the roof there bein no chimney whatever. This mornin being quite severe , and a very hot fir was a prime necessity , and the roc caught fire from the red hot pipe. Th fire -was speedily extinguished. Thi matter of running stove pipes up throug the roof is dangerous , and our city dad ought to take the subject in hand , c one of these days we will have a conflr gration of dimensions to report.
