MeCOOK.
Twelve miles west of Indlanola la cltattcd the
town of McCook. It line about four hundred Inhabi
tants , chiefly employes of the railroad company , for
here Is located one of the division station * of the B. &
M. R. R. The people of this place have exhibited no
little enterprise In the way of public improvements ,
among which arc the Congregatlonallst church build
ing , and a bridge across the Republican. Owing to
the impurities In the water as obtained from ordinary
veils a system of water works tau been established
and is now IB successful operation. The United States
Land Offlee for this district Is located here , thus
making the taking up o government lands IB any
part of the county an easy matter. Thc town coo-
tains two general stores , a honk , twa hotels , a lumber
yard , a saloon , etc. It is essentially a railroad town
and being the last town of Importance on the railroad
in this state , is hcadqnartcrs for the 'stocknjcn and
cowboys of tjie range. '
The above contemptible , cowardly , '
and unprincipled misrepresentation and
fabrication appeared in 'lastveek s
Courier. ' Personally , the author of the
miserable slur merits noattention , , as
his unprincipled , unmanly character is
too patent to the people of Red Willow
already , too putrid to be resurrected and
exhibited to the public 'gaze ; so we will
dispose of the nasty , mangy thing , and
pioceed. The writer has nothing but
, Hnd wishes for the continued prosperity
of the people of Indianola , and this
sentiment is the feeling of all pur citi
zens , who with us have the sublimest
contempt for the father of the above
' , bundle of villianous falsehoods , and un
bounded sympathy for the people who
have the measly carcass quartered in
their midst , breeding nothing but dis
cord and strife between those whose in
terests are common. Just how infinitesimally -
esimally small the principle , the honor ,
the manhood of an individual is , who
claims to be working for the interests
of the whole county , ' is inconceivable ;
and while his imbecile utterances- fall
4
upon the ears of those who know hint
the effect is nihil , but when advantage is
taken of what purports to be an annual ,
i. c. , an impartial description of the
county , to disseminate such statements
among those whom the annual reaches
away from this county as being the real
condition of McCook , the grossness of
the outrage upon the community needs
to be set before the people in its true
light. To speak specifically would oc
cupy too much space , but one statement
demands impeiatively a correction :
Population about 400. McCook to-3ay
contains not one soul less'than 700 p'eo-
ple , and the writer of the lying state
ment knew it at the time. Fully one
hundred people have moved into Mo-
Cook during the month of February ,
" and more are coming every day. Our
reporter , after seeing the obscure inti
mation that a hamlet , McCook by name ,
existed , started out to investigate , and
presents the following as the result of
his search :
MeCOOK
Is situated midway between Lincoln
and Denver , on the line of the B. & M. ,
of which it is a division station. The
company has erected a 15 stall round
house and repair shops , an eating house ,
and division headquarters. The Lincoln
Land Co. , at an expense of $25,000 ,
has planted a system of water works
only exceeded by one city in the State
of Nebraska , Omaha. A substantial
wagon bridge was recently completed
over the Republican river at this poini ,
and the streams of wagons which week
ly wend their way to McCook from the
southern part of this county and north
ern part of Decatur county indicate the (
great increase of trade its erection has
brought to our town. There are three
hotels , two large general stores , two
hardware stores , two drug stores , two
meat markets , two lumber yards , two
livery and feed stables , two land agen
cies , two insurance agencies , two milli
nery shops , two harness shops , two flour
and feed stores , one photograph gallery ,
and another in course of erection , one
bank , two barbers , four lawyers , three
physicians , one resident dentist , one
bakery , one blacksmith shop , three con
tractors , each with a force of minds now
busily'engaged in putting up business
houses and residences , and each having
contracts which 'will require the whole
of the coming summer to complete.
One tailor shop , one shoe maker , one
grocery and restaurant , one .jewelry
store , one furniture store , two brick
layers , four painters , one billiard parlor
and one saloon.
The U. S. Land Office is situated at
this place , and brings crowds of land
seekers to our town. A third general
store is in course , of erection which wUl
surpass anything of- the kind between
Hastings and Denver , when completed.
It contains two large store rooms on the
first floor , and main part of the second
story will form the best proportioned ,
and arranged hall for theatrical purposes
in the Republican Talley , all complete
with a commodious stage , dressing fooma
and ticket office. The. remainder will
be made" in residence rooms for Mr.
Menard , the builder.
The town of McCook stands to-day
the best town in the Republican Valley
although but a yearling. ' No town in
Southwestern Nebraska , west of Hast
ings , has as many fine and substantial
dwellings as McCook ; none contain a
more energetic class of business men or
finer stocks of merchandise , * none a
better class of society ; and. we think
we are not oversteping the bounds of
fact when we state that the Magic City
has no peer in the Valley.
McCook has entered upon a season of
prosperity , the demand for houses is
much greater than the supply. It is the
prevailing belief that more building will
be done this summer than last. And
the buildings will be in keeping irith
those already built , and an honor to
the town.
The country surrounding McCook is
as good as any in the county , and has
been taken up rapidly during the fall
and winter , and parties have refused $4
per acre for -land within two miles of
town. A number of houses have been
built on claims it ? this vicinity which
will be occupied in the Spring , and the
matter of cultivation will be tested more
extensively than ever before.
MR. BOEIINER , the literary pork pack
ing genius of the Arapahoe Pioneer ,
styles those newspaper men , who , in a
spirit of hnmo'r , run'him a little on his
"Singing Pilgrim" oration , eulogistic on
the death of Wendell Phillips , as "small
fry. " Very good. But when Fred , as
sumes the role ref the sharp witted
Prince Pickle , with the editors of the
Valley as the awe-stricken subjects , the
superlative wit and transcendent sar-
zasm of the thing is quite overpowering.
'Small fry" is good. Our brother needs
i a little seasoning. And now it doth
ippear that the Pioneer man has been
it his old triok and plagiarized the ar-
iicle from the Kenesaw Times.
