Full assortment of Lumber , Sash , Doors , Lime and Build ing Material , sold at close prices , con sidering the freight. No family , especially none with child ren , should fail to have a local newspa per. And in the selection of papers care should be taken as to sentiment and tone , and reliability of the state ments contained in the same. We are requested to announce that as the Catholic bretheren will occupy the Opera Hall , Sunday morning , and as other services will be held in the. hall in the afternoon , that no Methodist ser vices will be held until Sunday a week. The B. & M. will shortly commence the building of a branch running west from Holdredge through Gosper , Fron tier , etc. The route as now surveyed runs about four miles north of Stock- ville , showing the land company's handy- work. Among the residences that are being built in H. C. Rider's south addition are two of the square design for L. B. Stiles and Frank Reed. Both of these gentle men have purchased two lots , and will have pleasant properties , with extensive yards. A co-partnership has been entered into between A. P. Leech of this city and H. G.

Williams of Orleans was in McCook , last Friday , making arrange ments for loaning moneyon real estate. He will probably move to town and make this his permanent place of busi ness.

The lot. between Kendall's billiarc hall and LaTourette's hardware store , owned by D. Kendall has been purchas ed by M. Stern of Hastings , who wil build at once , preparatory to going into the very remunerative business of keep ing a saloon.

"ALL FOR $11.05" The tight rope performance given by the young gym nast , Tuesday afternoon , was witnessed by quite a number of poeple. The pro gram was executed in most respects up to the standard , and supplemented by the gratuitous antics of an individual well internally decorated with coffin varnish offered considerable amusement for the lookers-on. Standard Hallady wind mills at Span * ogle & Rinker's. A week or two ago one of the then numerous tin-horn gamblers anplied to Supt. Campbell for a-job. You may imagine his surprise and consternation when he was quietly , but firmly admonished ished that the company was not hiring pimps and tin-horns ; that the company had no trouble in getting all the help necessary from among honest and reli able young men. Exit tin-horn. Boston Brown Bread at the City Bak ery constantly. The test exhibition of the Harden Hand Grenade given by the gentlemen from Lincoln , Friday evening , was , we believe , considered a very satisfactory affair by all who witnessed it. Nearly every business man in town invested in one or more cases of grenades , thereby showing their confidence in them as fire extinguishers , and as being especially effective in the first stages of a , fire. For pumps and pipes go to Spanogle & Rinker. The average American's bump of ap preciation of the humorous is large. This was clearly demonstrated , Tues day afternoon , during the tight-rope performance. The performer's imita tion and mimicry seemed to "strike the observers where they lived , " and called forth hearty applause , while the more artistic part of the program received no such marks of approval. AU grades and qualities of Shingles at Pike's Lumber Yard. Seven car-loads of sheep billed to James Wonder of Culbertson , passed through this station , Friday evening. They were shipped from Wymore , this state , by Mr. Wonder , who was on the train personally attending to the ship ment. A number of car-loads of cattle and horses also composed the train. For whom and destination we were un able to ascertain. A full line of Pumps and Pump fit tings , at Spanogle & Rinker's. A car-load of grade Percheon Norman mares , shipped by Dunham of Wayne , 111' , to John A. Witter , manager of the Percheron-Norman Co. with - , headquar ters at Denver , for their range on the Box Elder , Lost Creek , Kiowa and South Platte , passed through this sta tion , last Friday on 83. The car which is specially adapted for horses , con tained 15 head , valued at $20.000 , and is the second shipment this spring. The City Livery Stable , B. F. Olcott , proprietor , for fine teams. During a local prairie fire which burn ed north of McCook , Monday , the home and household goods of Mrs. Hanlein were entirely destroyed , leaving the family in urgent need. The members of the household were kindly cared for ay William Johnson and other neigh- aors , who have been interesting them selves , the past few days , in getting means to build the family another house , and to in a measure replace the house- iold goods destroyed. New goods just arrived at C. H. Rogers' . As will be noticed in another column , Allen C. Clyde will on the 15th of May make application to the village board for license to sell liquor , the business to be conducted at the old Braun stand. Allow us to intimate to all anxious to 50 into this noblest of all businesses , that McCook is beyond all question the Dest point in Nebraska for the success ful transaction of the same. Our people ple are just now disposed to give saloon men , like all other public benefactors , a cordial welcome. Come and do us jood. Two setts of harness , ( one light and one heavy , ) for sale at B. F. Olcott's , very cheap. Another petition for saloon license , that of M. Stern of Hastings , has been circulating around town , this week , for signatures. Let the good work contin ue and prosper , fellow-citizens , saloons are among the noble institutions of man , wherein our young receive superb edu cations. Saloons teach and impress their lessons upon the youthful mind and heart so deeply that no power short of the infinite is able to undo the work. These lessons taught , fathers anc mothers , being as fixed as eternity , and being productive of such blessings , fi nancial , physical , mental , moral and spiritual , lining our coffers with yellow gold , storing our minds with knowledge , relieving the distress of the poor , heal ing the broken heart of the widow and clothing the orphan.in fact being the pan acea for all the ills to which man is heir , THE TRIBUNE sanctions , with all good citizens , the saloon , and wishes them god-speed in' their errand of love and mercy. Anything that will lighten the burdens of the oppressed , make more comfortable the poor and wretched , like the saloon , should engage our most he roic efforts , and they will. We want more. Great Reduction in Watches and Jewelry at McCrackcn's. The justice court over which Esquire Colvin presides was the scene of a rather humorous suit , Saturday evening in the which beer was a large and po tent clement. It appears that Jolin Everts , with two boon companions , Herrs Bumbaugh and Fullgrabe , went up to Joe Braun's bar , and that Everts ordered drinks for the party , stating in answer to Joe's inquiry as to whether he ( Everts ) ' had any money , that he ( Everts ) had a quarter. After dispos ing of the beer , it further appears that Everts invited Braun to go to that lo cation , where history informs us that fuel is unnecessary , for his money. Shortly thereafter Everts decided to quit the saloon through the earnest solicitation of Joe's muscular development , and Everts thereupon brought suit against Braun for assault. The case attracted considerable attention by reason of its decidedly laughable features. Braun was fined $5 , together with the costs , making about $20. The case was ap pealed to the district court. White Russian Soap , 5c. per bar , at Wilcox Bros. It is very evident that one man is un able to handle the mail received at this office , and the bondsmen , in whose hands this office now remains , ought to meet this demand of the public service prompt ly. Mail matter is accumulating , and decisive steps should be taken to insure the patrons of the office prompt and ac- urate distribution and delivery of mail. The people are much more deeply in- Crested in having the matter of post master settled than in the particular choice. The present quarters and fa cilities are entirely inadequate to the increased business of the office , and the people look forward with intense eager ness to the time when the long needed enlargement and improvement will oc cur. Brethren , let us make this a special subject of prayer. Call and see Spanogle & Rinker's top Buggies. Without deigning to exchange words with the illiterate monte-bank , whose jlack-guardisms have appeared weekly n the "Blow Hard , " against the edi tors of THE TRIBUNE , we simply request all our advertisers to call and satisfy themselves that we have , as we claim , the largest list of bona fide , paying sub scribers of any journal in Red Willow county. To be sure , "feminine dude" s a brilliant piece of borrowed , would- ) e witticism , but as the older residents of this town know the superlative "toot- er" to be the legitimate offspring of the saloon , poker table and bagnio , they will be very charitably disposed towards him , as we are , fully realizing that the skunk , ( our readers will please excuse the oderiferous allusion for this once , ) cannot be beaten at its own game. First-class 12 in. Stock Boards at Pike's Lumber Yard. The shower of Tuesday night was , to make use of the current slang express- on , a "daisy , " raising the thermometer of the more enthusiastic to fever heat , and cheering everybody immensely.

As THE TRIBUNE did not have any space to donate to the com pany , we failed to agree. We would like to see all our contemporaries refuse these institu tions further gratuitous Tulvertising. George H. Hand of the Ludell Settler came up to the city , Friday , on business , returning to his duties the following day. Bro. H. , as usual enlivened THE TRIBUNE with his pres ence. A number of our merchants also have occasion to remember George's visit. There is nothing in the market too flno for the editor of the Settlor. J. D.

Armacost and others ivho had just come down from the ranch , returning home , on No. 40 , Saturday evening. We note that F. L. McCracken has removed that familiar chicken-coop ornament from his jewelry store , and that the room is being im proved otherwise in appearance by an appli cation of calsomine , paper , etc. F. L. will also build an addition in the rear of his store for a sleeping room. This change makes a great improvement and adds to the convenience of the property as well. AFTER May 1st George W. Holdredge will bo General Manager of the great C. B. & Q. sys tem. Mr. Holdredge has coino up from the ranks to the most responsible position in the company's service. Is it surprising , or is it not , that so many people are disposed to do no more than they are compelled to do. Take for instance the immense pile of debris scattered along tiie railroad track cast of town. The same is growing larger and smells louder every week , right in the face of the fact that the people liv ing in that locality are complaining isainst the nuisance. It docs seem as O though this matter ought to correct itself , without the interference of the author ities. Ladies of McCook and vicinity : If you desire to have your dresses made neat and stylish , we would be glad to have you call and examine our work.
