THE TOWN OF M'COOK
In Red Willow County , Nebraska , lias been surveyed , and
lots in the market , for just one year and lias now a population
of 1000 people. This point has been designated by the C. , JB.
& Q. as the DIVISION STATION between the MISSOURI
RIVER & DENVER , where the principal shops , a 15 stall
round house and other R. R. facilities have been located on
the Denver Line. A complete system of water works costing
§ 25,000 is just being completed giving all the facilities for
comfort posessed of old cities. Lots will range in price from
§ 150 to $500 for business lots , and § 50 to § 200 for residence
lots. The history of points like McCook show an increase
of more than three hundred per cent , in from one to five years ,
and this town promises to be an exceptional chance for invest
ments. For further particulars apply to R. O. PHILLIPS ,
Or W. F. WALLACE , Secretary , Lincoln , Neb.

TIIKKE is quite a difference between
3hina and America. A poor China
man who had been helped by a mis-
ionary showed his gratitude by pray
ing that Buddah would turn him ( the
hinaman ) into an ass , so that the
missionary might ride on him in the
next life. When a-/man helps us ,
however , we pray that he , not we ,
may be turned into an ass , that we
may ride on him all our days.

"VVi : see the stale slander revived
and going the rounds of the press
that "women talk for the sake of tell
ing what they know ; men for the
sake of drawing out what others
knowi" A long experience and ob
servation and casual conversation with
both sexes as much of which as pos
sible has been devoted to the charm
ing gentler class enables us to char
acterize this silly tattle as. the sheerest
rubbish. As a rule the talk of women
AinoHg themselves is more instructive
than that of men ; it is infinitely more
free from vulgarity7 , gossip and vic-
iousness. Women -meet together in
this city for example in the mainte
nance of eight or ten commendable
associations and societies , church and
other. Their talk and chafc on such
occasions is business-like , lady-like
and instructive , pure and elevating.
Of such social gatherings the men
support one. Contrary to the general
conception , men are more inveterate
tattlers than women , and their pro
miscuous talk is vile 'and filthy be
yond all understanding. Men will tell
and laugh over smutty stories by the
hour a"nd lie awake nights trying tc
invent new ones. They will reel ofl
by the yard salacious yarns of theii
personal experiences that are madt
out of whole , cloth. There is a sing
ular feature about the talk of men
"When two are together they may con
verse about solid matters in a sensible
way , but the advent of of a third gen
erally diverts the channel of talk iitc
a dirty stream , and the accession oi
one or two more invariably converts
it into a cesspool. It is common tr
sneer at woman's tongue , but its fruii
to man has been solace , comfort and
happiness. The man who believes o
affects to believe in the superiority ol
his debased kind to the other in wall
or talk is a crank or a liar , and the
Journal is happy to bear the burdei :
of the statement. It is time this fus-
ilade against the imaginary liglitnesJ
of woman's mind should cease. If she
have faults , they may all ie traced'te
her unaccountable or unreasonable
fondness for the coarse and gross
creature we call man. Were he re
moved from the scene of action , wo
man would go through the work
without spot or blemish. He oughi
to be ashamed of and hate himself foi
his detraction of the undeserved bless
ing bestowed upon him , and the intti
vidual who would scar a woman's ten
der reputation with a foul tongu <
ought to be sent scurrying instantei
to the realms of Pluto. Topics.

THE Woman's Tribune contains
the following clipped specimen of
"woman's quick intuition. " The edi
tress's fruition of the same is doubt
less genuine "An Austin candidate ,
who had a number of negroes employ
ed on his place , liad an old musket in
the house , which had been loaded for
about three years. As he wanted to
load it up for ducks , he called Jim ,
one of the negroes , to take the gun
out into the yard and fire it off. 'Xo ,
don't let Jim fire that gun off. He is
going to vote for you to-morrow , and
the gun may burst and kill him. Tell
Jake to take the gun and fire it off.
I've got my doubts about how he is
going to vote ! ' exclaimed the can
didate's vrife _ with the quick intuition
of a woman.1'
A UKILLIAXT young man died in
Atchison from excessive drink , and
the Champion thereupon printed a.
forcible and truthful temperance lec
ture , taking the case of the unfortu- *
natejoung man as its text. It said
notliing to which an easy conscience
could take exception , but a howl was
raised by a class which felt that it
had been reflected upon. "VVe are glad
to note that the Champion has the
manly courage of its convictions , and
continues. If there is a curse in this
day and age-that needs extermination ,
it is the habit of young men collect
ing for the express purpose of en fag-
ing in a drunken debauch , or " 'going
on a bum , " as they delight to express
it. Itiis often sthe case that 2. coteriu
of this sort will select a young man
who would otherwise remain sdber.v
and will employ every possible.device
until he has entered -fully into their
degrading fellowship. The -youn ;
mail of sense should take -warning ,
