Investigation discloses the fact that
the individuals engaged in trying to
smash in the side of the Band Hall
during the club dance , Wednesday even
ing of last week , were not boys , but
the same genus of a ' 'larger growth , "
physically , but pigmies mentally , and
utterly lacking in good scase. The man
ly individuals were arrested and "set
tled. " Another such an inexcusable
break , and the offenders will be dealt
with more rigorously.

Our people ought to give every en
couragement to those coming hero with
the intention of farming and stock rais
ing. Nothing gives a town more sub
stantial aid than a solid farming com
munity , and that is what we want and
need MORE MKX TO TILL THE SOIL.
soil as productive as the best in Nebras
ka , which will yield handsomely when
properly cultivated. There will beyond
a peradventtire be a large influx of people
ple into this vicinity early in the spring ,
and instead of trying to cover up the
land in the neighborhood or remaining
supinely indifferent , it will be to the
interest of everybody to discommode
themselves somewhat , and assist in lo
cating them on claims , and the harvest
will be plentiful.
The subject of a new school house
is being agitated somewhat. A ne.w
school building is a matter of prime im
portance to McCook. There arc many
ranchmen of wealth who would certain
ly make our city their headquarters for
a considerable part of the year , if not
their permanent abode , if the facilities
for schooling their families were such
as to make it an object to do so. Our
teachers are doing their best , but arc
cramped for room , apparatus , etc. , and
we are of opinion that McCook has
reached that stage when she can afford
a large , good and substantial building
and we believe the same will be forth
coming at an early date a structure in
keeping with the town , and of one of
which we may be proud. So may it be.
The superlative event of the month
is the advent of the pay car. No occur
rence which is looked forward to with
such genuine signs of pleasure trans
pires in a railroad town. And when the
intelligence is circulated that the rag-
car will make McCook at a given hour ,
the boys gather themselves together ,
give their pantaloons a hitch , a smile
child-like and bland suffuses their coun
tenances , and they make a break for
the depot. R. R. men in the main are
well paid , but "easy come , easy go , "
Fcems to be peculiarly appropriate in
the major , with some notable excep
tions , as will be observed by the man
ner in which quite a number are getting
to the front , the oosy houses they have
builded themselves , the cattle they are
accumulating , and the modest bank
accounts they are building up , a la
TRIBUXE the latter's b. a. being dis
tressingly modest. The importance of
the event is not magnified over much
when we consider that between $15,000
and $18,000 of the total amount of
about $30,000 which is monthly paid
to the employes of this division , is left
behind by Mr. Floyd at this place.
