JOSEPH BRAUN. &ight head of cattle were killed just i-Deyond Akron on Friday. Engineers are experiencing considerable trouble with stock at present , as they persist in mistaking the railroad track for a cow- path to their destruction. We have been having some of the severest weather of the winter during the past week. We noted that the ther monger indicated 14 degress below zero , 8 o'clock , Saturday murnin.e , anc 4 degrees below on Sunday morning. The Sterling News , published in Weld ounty , Colorado , which borders on DUn- dy county , says t We learn from Borne of the prominent stock men that cattle have been and are suffering considerably in this section of country from the effect of the protract ed snow. The new photograph gallery will be milt on East Dennison street , opposite the McCook Hotel. Work on the'same will be commenced ID a week or two at most Mr. Marble is quite anxious to go to work , but is waiting on his brother who is coming with the Marengo party next week. It now transpires that the cow-boy to whom Mr. Sherman , agent at Akron , paid bis respects , is a real , boh a fide dude from the metropolis , who was do ing the cow-boy act , after becoming well soaked with Benkelman's bad budge. The identical individual who bluffed Too-fat , the redoubtable. Hon. Frank J. Sibley , of Lincoln , will lecture in the Congregational church , Sunday , February 24th , on the subject of Temperance. Mr. Sibley is a speaker of note and there should be a large turn-out of those of our people interested in the matter which includes all , as all are deeply interested. / A petition is being circulated praying that School Board of District No. 17 call a special meeting of the tax-payers of said district for the purpose of locat ing a school house site , and for the fur ther purpose of voting for or against the issuing of bonds for said site , building and furniture. I McCook needs a school house./and while our people are considering' the matter , let us have a good building , and let the same be built on as central loca tion as possible. We hope no sectional strife will be manifest in the matter , and that the building will be located as harmoniously to the wishes of all , as is practicable. ' Our Carrico correspondent mentions one notable instance where farming has jcen successfully carried on in this sec tion , although those of little faith are quite numerous. Mr. Swiggert , who re sides up the Willow 25 miles , has fenc ed a good farm and bought 100 head of tine cattle with the money realized from farming since 1878. A very creditable showing. Give us more of the same kind of news. The American Concert Company drew a crowded house last evening. The per formance was a very enjoyable one. Miss Emma Wells especially exhibited a wonderful compass of voice , and went from baritone to tenor , from tenor to alto , and from alto to soprano with the most astonishing facility. In each role her singing was really excellent. Winnipeg Free Press. Will be in Mc Cook , Monday , February 25th. Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Laws entertained a number of friends , Friday evening , in their usual very delightful manner. Our reporter , who highly enjoyed their hos pitality , noted the presence of the fol lowing , who passed a pleasant evening with cards , music , etc. : Mrs. Hollister , Mrs. Bosley , Mr. and Mrs. Stiles , Miss Hollister , Misses Fisher , and Messrs. Forbes and Will Fisher. The et cetera refers to the merriment which the pres ence of J. F. never fails to occasion. George Chenery , so well and favora bly known by all , received a letter from Englandj Monday , which conveyed to him tke sad news of the death of his father. The information was not en tirely unexpected , as Georjre knew of his father's illness , and from his age , the worst was to be expected , but the news was none the less overwhelming. George has endeared himself to a large circle of friends who are pained to hear of this affliction and who tender their heartfelt sympathy in this liis Hour of need. George leaves .for England next Sunday , where he will remain , for a year , or so at least , but we are of opinion that "the land of the free. " has such a charm for him that he will return and make this country his permanent home. We hope we are right , and that McCook may be that home. The weather of the part week or two has been very severe on stock , espec ially range cattle. The continued wet weather of last fall bleached the other wise remarkably nutritious buffalo grass to such an extent that ev n a moderate ly mild winter would have affected them considerably , and should this weather continue foi any length of time the loss of stock 'will be greater than many an ticipate. The range cattle are reported as being very thin already , and as not being in shape to stand any more severe weather. The stockman's petition is for less snow and milder weather. Mr. Hatfield informs us that some of bis eastern cattle , being unaccustomed to canyons , have undertaken to slide down some of their precipitous sides and have landed at the bottom with broken necks , otherwise his loss has been email to date. The Commissioners at their meeting , last Saturday , entertained bids for the county printing , and the Courier , having tendered the lowest' bid nihil was awarded the aforesaid printing. We are terribly disgruntled but console our selves when we take into consideration that it is in sweet harmony with "the eternal fitness of things" as sort of conscience fund which the Courier is presenting to Red Willow county. But nevertheless we are disgruntled ( ? ) A little competition is the "life of trade" in this case , and has saved the county considerable money , which we cheer fully donate don't mention it. Our worthy contemporary remarked that "if it comes to this , ( i. e. to competion , ) I have nothing to say. " But later , "re pented of the evil he would have done , " and put in the bid above mentioned. "Competition without bitterness ; emula tion without strife. " We shall continue to publish the county printing for our readers as heretofore. THE PHANTOM PARTY. A Large Gathering and an Immense Time Enjoyed by All. The Phantom Party given by the So cial Club in the Band Hall on Wednes day evening was one of the most suc cessful and enjoyable social events of the winter and we have had a number of most delightful gatherings. Prep arations for the ball were elaborate and complete in every particular , and every body was on the tip toe of pleasurable anticipation the dance being the ab sorbing theme for some days before its occurrence and none were disappoint ed , as the evening was one of unalloyed pleasure throughout. The number of maskers was unusually large , and the amount of amusement unlimited as such a galaxy of merne makers as Messrs. Forbes , Potter , Hunt and a number of lesser stars is bound to pro duce. At 11:30 , the hour appointed for unmasking , the phantoms became realities. It was a subject of comment that everybody knew everybody after unmasking. So great is human percep tion. About midnight the ladies served an elegant lunch , which was most heartily enjoyed by all. After which the dance was continued until about 2 o'clock , when .the gay assemblage repaired to their respective places of abode. Great credit is due the ladies for the splendid lunch provided , snd to the gentlemen who had the affair in charge. Our reporter became so enterested in the dance that he failed of ascertaining the exact number present , but the fol lowing were among the present : Mr. and Mrs. Green , Bosley , Laws , Kelley , C.
