Also , a supply of white bolted corn meal. We cannot be too careful what we cat. Lois' German Baking Powder is free from alum , ammonia and deleter ious subtances. Sold by C. II. Rogers. Melon parties arc numerous on our streets , and the remains of such feasts are scattered along the public thorough fares just as numerously , and to the great inconvenience ofpedestrians. . The most intractable pony in this nook of this mundane sphere assuredly belongs to E. II. McCormick. Her in clination toward festivity is just as marked as upon her fiwt appearance. What's the matter with somebody b/ilding a skating rink in MeCook. /Almost every little burg in the state sports such a place of amusement , and a well-regulated rink would pay here. A social will be held at the house o : Mrs. W. 0. Moody , Friday evening , September 12 , under the auspices o the Good Templars Lodge. All mem hers and friends arc cordially invited. We have the assurance that either Mr. Hayden or Mr. Ilocknell will ban die the grain of this vicinity , unless other arrangements are ' made. This assures the handling of the grain at al events. - The B. & M. Co. has put in stock and feed yards near the round house ai Hastings , and all stock shipped from Bcnkclman and points cast of that sta tion will be unloaded and feed and wat ered there. McCook is rapidly assuming metro politan airs in many respects. That everlasting nuisance , the "I travel-on- my-shape" specimen is quite numerous and we are bearing our portion of the burden in lo'ss. To the railroad boys and others who have kindly ministered to his necessities during his late severe illness , J. W. Howcll desires to return his sincerest thar.ks. Mr. Howcll may now be con sidered convalescent. \ Ammonia and alum kills the germ of the flour , causes indigestion and dj's- pepsia , which leads to other diseases. Lois' German Baking Powder assimu- n latcs the food , and is entirely free from 1 any injurious ingredients. Sold by C. H. Rogers. There are two industries that would be of immense value to our town , a grist mill and woolen factor } ' . * Crops f of small grain can always be success fully grown and the thousands of sheep in this country would keep a good fac tory running. More than one hundred and fifty dollars lars have already been subscribed to ward building a cooler , and we hope ti soon to be able to announce the com h pletion of that needed public institu- tion. Apropos , we had plenty of use Per one this week. tl O' The most handsomely mounted pair of buffalo horns is now owned by Art. Lytle , and they are fine indeed , but we opine this will emulate some other am- aitious horn polisher to greater exer tions and conquests. Ic is hard to hold the belt for any length of time. w Our attention is called to the fact that the road connecting the metropolis s and county-scat is still in the disgrace / ful state mentioned in an issue of some time since. If this comes to the view TI the proper officer , we hope he will it the consideration it demands. r Di The shipment of cattle'is now fully DiPi inaugurated. Five train loads were shipped in from the west , last week , m ind two trains of 30 car-loads each ai ain svere scut Chicago-ward from Bcnkel- n nan , Sunday night. Two more train oads of cattle passed through , Monday jvening. sc It is earnestly desired that all who ic ire interested in the organization of a [ iiusical union will meet at the Opera nt lall , this evening , Thursday , at 7:30 : , Mountain time. Turn out and talk this > natter over among yourselves. Such an n rgauization would be a great benefit to ) f ur town. Lend a helping hand ! \ \ Nine hundred dollars have been SUB- or scribed toward building a Catholic jhurch in McCook. The intention is to ; juild a church costing about two tlious- o ind dollars. All wishing to subscribe w : vill please do so soon. The building 'u ' lommittee consists of Thos. Golfer , 1C Fohn Farley , J. R. Phelan , W. F. Wai- pi ace and Wni. Fruin. > We , had the -pleasure of a short visit ti rorn the editor of the Dexter ( Iowa ) jjt Sentinel , Tuesday. IK * The old Leland'barn has been enlarg ed and a commodious corral attached to the same , both of which arc now under the control of J. J..Dunbar , who has a fine lot of pole teams , saddle horses , etc. , for hire cheap. He also buys and sells horses. Stabling for 50 head. Call and see him. John Kirchner , of Herndon , who lost his mules and had some money stolen from him between Cambridge and Arap- ahoc , has recovered his mules and $50 of the money. Deputy sheriff McCor mick and J. E. Cochran , of McCook , afforded him great assistance in the matter. Atwood Citizen. The manipulator of the paste , brush and scissors of this office takes the lib erty to remark that the luscious grape will grow in this country. Mr. Watts of the Sappa , brother-in-law of J. W. Howell , lays on our table the proof in the" shape of a number of bunches of an excellent taste and flavor. An exchange makes the following very truthful remark : "An honest man will pay for his paper before he orders it i stopped a scoundrel sneaks off and lets 1i 1 the postmaster notify the publisher that i the paper remains in the post office , because 1 the person to whom it was sent has 1 left for parts unknown. " Something bearing an anatomical likeness 1 to the genus homo in its out lines , got off the trucks of the first-class coach attached to No. 40 , Monday , and wandered blindly and aimlessly river- ward. It was so paralyzed by dust and the rapid motion of the "cannon ball" upon reaching this station , as to be al most unable to navigate. The buzzing bee doth now manipulate , his plycrs to the detriment of the leaves on tree and bush. The absorbing ques tion among those of our citizens who are blessed with' these products of the nursery is how to put a quietus on the too busy bee , or at least how to put a stop to the depredations of the afore said insect. Suggestions are in'order. W. M. Irwin has taken down his 10 foot Enterprise mill and replaced it with a 12 foot Woodmanse , to run a feed grinder. He thinks the Wood- manse is the best self-regulating , strong est , less noiseless and lightest running mill in market. Call at his residence miles northwest of McCook and in spect the mill. Will put up a 12 foot Woodmanse at same figures asked for 10 foot Enterprise. . Annie Sevenker , who came home from : Denver three or four weeks ago ' sick with fever , died at the residence of her parents , a few miles northwest of town , early Monday morning. The remains were laid away in their final resting place on the homestead of the parents of the deceased. The transi tion from the exuberance and glow of liealth to the paler of death , we are re minded , is terribly rapid betimes. The Lincoln Land Co. has set aside the entire block in which the water tank on ' the hill is situated for a park , and will proceed at once to plow up the en tire place , preparatory to setting out trees , etc. , this fall. It is proposed to set a double row all around the block and also on each side of two walks which are to be laid out diagonally from the four corners. The remainder of the square will be planted to grasses and n shrubbery , and will make a handsome /lace , if proposed plans are carried out. A little fracas occurred m the Colvin House , Monday , resulting in S. M. Bow man's head coming in contact with a ase ball bat in the hands of the pro- tl meter of that hostelry , to the diminu tltl tion of the personal beauty of the first tl mentioned. Bowman was intoxicated md became abusive and pugilistically nclined being desirous of wiping up at Jic floor with Mr. Colviii's manly form as a result. The b. b. b. aforesaid somewhat cooled Bowman's ardor , and quitted the premises. Bowman is a uiet , peaceable fellow , but is uufortu- lately given to drink at times. $ Q The Apron Fair and Festival given y the members of the Ladies' Union A the Opera Hall , Thursday evening last week , was , we take pleasure in innouncing , a pleasant and profitable me. The display of aprons by the Un- on was very creditable , embracing all radcs from the demure little gingham the handsome hand painted satin , B vith lace trimmings , and many tbought- ei ul housewives took advantage of the in iccasion to lay in a stock. The literary clA 3reface was fair , but the length of time A ccupied in preparing the tableaux de- racted from their effect. Altogether , he evening was enjoyable and it'is to w regretted that the attendance was w lot larger. be There id now.on exhibition at fche real estate office of A. C. Towne some speci mens of sod corn , broom corn , diffei tut kinds of grain , etc. , that arc uncxccpj tionally fine , and ones that would do any of our more pretentious eastern coun ties proud. With the amount of moisture - i ture that has characterized this season , Red Willow county will come to the I front in grand style. j Connection with the wejl was made , ' Tuesday , and upon starting the pump b'roke , but was speedily repaired , and is , now doing its accustomed work. With this change in the way of procuring the , | ' water , the quality of that liquid ought ; to be greatly improved. The company | I ought to put in another engine and pump. When the one now in use breaks , j I the people are liable to be without water j until the needed repairs are made. This j can be done without a very great outlay i of money , and will strengthen the sys- tern. tern.H. H. C. Rider whiled away a few days in Crete this week. Mr. Rider has erect ed 23 buildings at McCook this summer , and transacted a large real estate busi ness. He says that he now proposes to take a little rest. He just returned from a visit to the mining camps of Colorado , where he says everything is dull and business at a stand still. After taking in the state fair , he will start for New Orleans , do up the cotton ex position and take a trip through the Southern States returning via New York. Crete Vidette. A meeting of the land agents of the Valley took place at Orleans at the office of R. S. Hendricks this week. There was a good attendance and some good work done that may result in con siderable benefit to the Valley. The news of our unprecedented prosperity has reached parts of the east , and the cry is "to Nebraska. " We can look for a good immigration this fall and winter. Our local land agents are maks ing strong efforts to secure their share of the coming flood of seekers of homcb in the far west Orleans Sentinel. For the information of the public , Postmaster Scott requests us to publish s the following letter from the Chief Clerk of the railway mail service ai Omaha. He desires to state that one hour is all the time the office is requir ed to be kept open for the delivery of mail on Sunday , and that any longei time is a matter of accommodation on his part : OFFICE CHIEF CHEIIK R. M. S. , w Omaha , Neb. , June 3d , 18S4. c Sill : I should think if you should open your office from 12 to 1 ou Sunday it would be sufficient. It would be well if you would give 'notice through the paper at your place that the office would only be open at this hour for the delivery of mail. One hour is all the time re that is given people here to receive their mail. Respectfully , reB T. M. SCOTT. P. M. , A. W. GRIFFEN , McCook , Neb. Chief Clerk. B There never was a time perhaps when the necessity for paying small bills was A more imperative than the present Ev ery man feels that he should have 11 every dollar that is due him. and the bi failure of persons to pay small bills biai who are able to do so , tends to tighten ti financial affairs and produce individual and general stringency in money mat ters. If every person would reflect how d many debts only a dollar or two would liquidate , and how much a community would be benefitted by a general pay ment of small accounts , we think a key would be found to unravel and remove much of the complaint of stringency in 01 money matters. Therefore , if you owe cc this office anything we would be pleased to have it paid in at once. ti tiSI HOW MANY SI People come into the world , eat and si drink and enjoy themselves the best they can and have never a thought for , . . others. They leave no trace behind them ; no signs painted , etc. H. W. Pike has his sign painted on a stock fa shed full of Seasoned Lumber , selling close prices for the quality , and a r\ yard stocked up with a full assortment suitable for a "Claim Shack" to a Palace.
