McPherson - son as a feed store , and are putting in a stock of millinery. 'f Mr. Marble desires us to inform the 7 public that he will have his photograph gallery in operation by the last of next Tveek. . The Land'Office at MeCook has been doing an immense business for some weeks past. The sum of $10,000 a week has been received. " Charles Nobel has commenced the erection of a dwelling 16x28 , witb .an L 12x16 , on lot adjoining J. B. Phelan. J. F. Collins has the contract. Every available structure in town is occupied , and residences and- business houses are being rushed along to com pletion with all possible , haste , g On our first page of this issue we present some interesting correspondence from different localities. Keep up the work. Send .us in the news of your neighborhood. Some parties jumped theirboard bill at the Colvin House , the first of the week. The same persons skipped with 0iue jewelry the property of soiled doves of this place. A. A. Phillippi , prosecuting witness in the Phillippi Whittaker libel case , desires us to correct the statement that he was bound over to appear at the next term of District Court. . Within the next 30 days the number of settlers will increase rapidly. A great many persons took claims last fall , and the six months allowed by law to enter the same will have expired. A number of cow-boys who were stop ping at the Colvin House , Monday , suc ceeded in making consummate fools of themselves , by their miserable bellowing around the hotel , to the annoyance of the neighborhood. X * * The greatest difficulty officers find in bringing" guilty parties to justice is to get some one to make complaint. - Ev erybody tries to shift the responsibility upon some other one , and 'the result is very few are brought to account for their violations. We have ft'number of extra copies of this issue. Those who wish to acquaint friends or others about MeCook can do by sending this week's paper. We omitted to mention that MeCook contains three organized , congregations : The Cougrcgationalist , Episcopal , and Methodist denominations. The Congregationalists - gregationalists hove a church building , the other churches worship in the Band Hall. . The individual of Hebrew extraction who has been selling.'imported silk , etc. , "from Paris , " very pretty as to appear ance , and equally snide as to quality and durability , was fined to the tune of $50 and costs. The margins in his busi ness must necessarily be immense as the same fine was imposed at Indianola. We are informed that Culberteon people "bit" , equally voraciously. With the first indications of "gentle spring" comes the obsequious "snide" with his notions , etc. , to gull the un sophisticated. H.qw long , 0 lord , how long , will people continue to be.taken in by these shams. ' In the wake of the snide comes the wheel of fortune ( and other similar gambling apparatus ) .man to relieve the sporting man of his sur plus capital. Thus , runs the world away. Some , parties amused themselves , Sunday morning , by discharging a re volver out of a second story window df the Colvin House. Two shots were fir ed , when Mayor Berger and Constable McCormick made an unsuccessful at tempt to find out who were the disturb ers of the peace. Shortly .afterward another shot was fired. They again went'into the hotel , butwere % unable to ascertain who were the guilty parties , owing to'the refusal of those , whose duty it.is . to frown down such actions , to di vulge the names , or allow those in their employ to. N. People sometimes become tired of imposition , and such seems to be the' condition of mind some of our citizens are in very tired. Trees are valuable cost a little money in this neck o' ' woods , and no one cares to have a horse tear enough bark off to destroy them ; neither do they purpose having a lot of hogs destroy what vines and shrubbery they plant , and many of our property holders , intend planting extensively this spring. Pass an ordinance compelling the owners of these animals to keep them peneu up , before it becomes nec essary to have recourse to the shot-gun policy which will be the inevitable re sult if this matter is not properly set tled soon. Mr. Phelan showed us an outline of the improvements contemplated by him self , Supt. Campbell and Mr. Hocknell , this spring. It is the intention of Messrs. Phelan and Hocknell , who to gether own an entire square , to have their extensive yards laid out.in , similar designs. These gentlemen have ordered a bill of trees , shubbery , etc. , amount ing to some $300 with which they pur pose adorning their premises. A hedge will enclose the entire square , and a row of large trees is to be set without the hedge. A road will be made through the center of the square , and walks around their residences. Supt. Camp bell will plant trees , shrubbery , etc. , and otherwise add to the appearance of his handsome property. I. J. Starbuck returned from an ex tended visit in Indianola , Iowa , Sunday night. During his absence he purchas ed four young graded Hereford bulls , and a Clydesdale stallion which is pro nounced a beauty by horsemen. The Herefords are coming two years old , and Mr. Starbuck is very proud of them. This purchase is another indication that stockmen are awaking to the importance of improving the blood of their herds , and we believe the next few years will show great advancement in that direc tion. It costsas much to keep a poor animal as it does a superior and their is more money in the latter , are the words of an experienced stockman who has been acting on that belief for some years , selling off his Texan heifers and improving his herd yearly until he now has one of the best graded little herds in the Valley. understand that the parties who recently purchased 40.0 feet of hose are disposed to hand the same over to the town authorities to whom the , advisa bility of appointing a Chief with author ity to organize a voluhteer fire depart ment , has been suggested. .Sufficient means have been subscribed to purchase a hose cart and to build a shed in which to place it. A suitable location for the shed has been offered gratis. Let the owners of the hose prepare o'paper for mally turning oyer the same to the vil lage authorities who are. favorable to such a plan , and a Chief will be ap pointed and an effective volunteer ser vice can easily be organized , The Lincoln Land Co. , as soon as the , condition of the ground will permit , will dig a large reservoir , near the river , below the pump house , and will dig a .trench . leading from the same to the sand points from whence the water supply of our town is derived. Another pump will be put in and another tank erected on the hill. This will increase the water supply more than half , as the pump now in use draws water faster than the points supply. This will be overcome by the building of a. reservoir near the river , which is intended to keep the points always well supplied with water. These improvements and addi tions will conduce greatly to the effect iveness of the system. . An arrangement is to be made by which the combined force of both engines may be thrown in to the main pipe , in case of fire. An intoxicated individual from Kan sas indulged in the dangerous amuse ment of discharging his revolver rather promiscuously in Russell's barn , Tues day night , to'the detriment of window panes , etc. Our informant states that he made the boys who sleep at the barn dance at the point of the revolver , rob ed only in their retiring uniforms , which , considering the frigidity of the atmos phere , was not the height of bliss. Dur ing his fusilade , one of the bullets struck within a foot of his wife's head who. was occupying the loft of the barn as a. dor mitory. He kept the boys out in the cold for about two hours , bare headed and bare footed , and with but the scan tiest clothing on. Finally , abput 3 o'clock in the morning , ) they went over to Constable McCormick's , and got him up to arrest the dangerous'customer. He fired two parting shots after the. re treating figures , and retired to the bara where he was on the arrival of the offi cer. The parties compromised the mat ter the next morning , so the shotist says , by his paying some $10 or $15 , and as no complaint was made against him nothing could be done. Strange. Our city dads met in regular sdssion , Tuesday night of this week , and passed two ordinances which will appear in our next issue. The first ordinance provides for the fining and punishment of all parties allowing any animals to run at large within the limits of this corpora- tio.n. Also , for the taking up and im pounding such animals , and upon refus al of the owner to pay charges and ex penses , the ordinance makes provision for the sale of" the same to cover such expenses. A rich , deep vein of humor characterizes our Board aldermanic , as attests section 2 of this ordinance : "Whenever any Sunday School teacher , editor , or other person shall find any animals running at large contrary to the provisions of the proceeding section , he shall immediately take up and impound such animal. " The other sections pro vide ample means for ridding our streets of these nuisances. The other ordinance provides for the issuance of druggist's permits. Makes them subject to the same requirements as the saloon keeper , as respects petition , bond , etc. It also makes it necessary for the proprietor of the drug store to file with the village clerk a sworn report of all liquors sold , to whom sold and for what purpose , every six months. Treasurer Wallace also made his report , showing the whole amount received into the treasury to bo $229.16 , and the amount paid School District No. 17 as $196.66. Balance in the treasury , $32.50. Don't winter linger a little too long ? Spring ought to bounce him. Frank J. Sibleyof Lincoln , organized a Good Templar lodge in MeCook , Wednesday evening , as per announce ment of last week. The severity of the weather kept many persons who would , otherwise have been present away , but enough were present to form a good , effective organization. Mr. Sibley or wife will return to MeCook next Tues day and install the. officers elected Wednesday evening , and all those who will join the lodge at their next regular meeting , Tuesday evening , . will have their names inscribed on the charter as charter members. We hope a number will decide so to do. Quito a few have signified their intention to join in the good work , and an invitation is extended to be present at their next meeting.

During a recent visit of the Cpunty Superintendent to our schools , the teach er of the primary department , with the commendable ambition of displaying the knowledge of history she had been in stilling into their youthful minds by way of recreation , propounded the fol lowing question , a proper reply to which they had been taught previously , but it seems by this time to have become somewhat dim and confused : "Who gave Columbus assistance in fitting out the little fleet in which he discovered America ? " The little boy to whom the question was addressed , upon due con sideration thought it was the Queen of Clubs , but upon more mature consider ation gave it as his opinion that the Queen of Spades was the good Queen to whom the honor belonged. These astounding pronunciamentos rather non plussed our worthy Superintendent , but he mustered sufficient courage to ask another little youthful , who after some mental research , decided that it was a "woman-king , but he had forgotten the name. " I tell you the world do move. * - ' ' - " The winter term of school ends to morrow. Our principal , Charlie Boyle , and assistant , Miss Jamison , -though laboring under many inconveniences , have taught a successful school. We * - * * hope that when the next term of school opens , they will convene in a fine , new school house. We understand the mat ter of bonds , etc. , will be settled at the regular election in April.
