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.

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.
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

body was on the tip toe of pleasurable
anticipation the dance being the ab
sorbing theme for some days before its

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
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
