Several -parties indulged in racing
their horses on West Dennison street ,
Sunday afternoon , contrary to the ordi
nance of the village. If you want te
race your horses , it strikes us that the
race course is the proper place , am
week days the proper time to do so. I ]
you do not have any regard for the day
out of respect for the feelings of thos <
who do , aesist.
It has been suggested to us that w <
call the attention of the proper partie ;
to the condition of our streets when

the suspicion of some 6f our citizens ,

not improbable thut the steps taken in

opinion that it-would be to the advan

A young man representing the Crete
Nursery has been in town , all week ,
assisting those of our citizens who or
dered from .that firm , in planting theii
trees , hedges , etc. If all the towns in
the valley do as , well in the way of ob
serving Arbor Day as McCook , the }
have dpne'well ' indeed. A row of fine
trees has been planted , on Madisor
street , from J. B. Meserve's corner te
the north corner of J. R. Phelan'i
j property , which will add immensely tc
the appearance of the- street if thej
grow , and with our superb water facil
itics there can be little question bu
that they will. Messrs. Franklin ane
Kenyon have planted "a hedge betweer
their properties. Messrs. LTockuel
and Phelan have planted a row of tree :
around their entire block , and withii
this a row of hedging. They hav <
also planted a row of evergreens , shrub
bcry , and other ornamental plants
which will make their properties tin
handsomest in Sauthwestern Nebraska
Superintendent Campbell also plantee
a row of trees around his residence ane
others in his yard. G. W. Daniel ;
planted a row of trees along the nortl
and west sides of his residence , am
otherwise improved the already nea
appearance of his yard. A. M. Kclle ;
and others have done likewise.

A. E. Lytle , our reporter took the nooi
train , Tuesday , for Benkelman , to pai
ticipate in the session of the Stoc'
Association , which met in that town o
said day. Although reaching the seen
of action rather late to give the Asse
ciation the benefit of our experience i
their deliberations , we were able to prr
cure the minutes of the Cession , whic
appear in their entirety elsewhere i
this issue. It will be observed that th
preliminary round-up will commence o
the 15th of May , beginning on the Mee
icineand , operating westward until the
join the general round-up at the hea
of the.frenchman on the 25th day e
May. Also , it will be observed that th
question of mavericks and fencing i
large tracts of the public domain rcceh
the attention of the Association. A
Association , such as met at Benkelma :
Tuesday , if the members constituthi
the same are energetic , may be vei
effective. Our reporter noted a numbi
