.We are just advised as to the death
of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Babcock's little
boy baby , which occurred at the resi
dence of Mrs. Babcock's mother in
Rockford , 111. , where the mother and
child had been visiting for some time ,
July 6th. The bereaved parents have
the sympathy of this community in the
loss of their little one their only child.
There are two civil engineers from
Lincoln in town , who , in connection
with George Irving , are mapping out
more water mains. We understand that
a main will be laid along Railroad
street , running cast and west , also that
the company will put in a fire-plug at
the corner of Main avenue and Railroad
> MT
street , a precautionary measure against
The wash-out near Stratton , which
occurred last week , was more extensive
than was at first reported. Five spans
of the bridge or trestle work were taken
out , requiring the efforts of a large
force of men to repair temporarily by
Friday evening , when 'the excursion
train which had been laying over at
this point , went on her west-bound
"trip rejoicing.
Mrs. Thompson , who has been drill
ing the small children of our town for
the past week , gave one of her Happy
Hours concerts in the Opera Hall ,
Tuesday evening. Considering the
shortness of the time for preparation
and other disadvantages under which
the children labored , they executed
their part of the program very credita
bly and amusingly betimes. The au
dience was fair.
J. B. Meservc returned from his trip
to Paxton , 111. , Friday evening. Dur
ing his absence he formed a cattle com
pany under the head and style of the
Paxton Cattle Co. , with George Wright ,
President ; 0. D. Sacket , Vice-Presi-
dent ; C. H. Frew , Secretary and Treas
urer , and' J. B. Meserve , General Man
ager. The company will add a few
steers to their herd this fall , and stock
up largely in the spring.
"Fly foo' ' is the name of a new gam
bling game. The players sit around a
table , each one having a lump of sugar
in front of him. Then each player puts
a dime or a quarter into the pool , and
the man on .whose sugar a fly first
alights rakes in the wealth. Flies come
high but they must be had. If a pre
mium were added for the largest num
ber of flies and the game played in the
rear of Hayden's store , the game would
be most remunerative.
Wednesday , Thursday and Friday of
the past week were among the liveliest
McCook has seen in a long while. All
trains were delayed here from six to
eight hours and the dusty travelers
thronged the Eating House and the
restaurants for iood and drink , and the
regular boarders approached their re
spective eating places with fear and
trembling , and great luck was to them
if they were able to get a seat at the
table. Wet groceries were in brisk
A number of the "Bee line Rocky
Mountain" excursionist , who were de
tained at this station all day Friday ,
by reason of the wash-out near Stratton ,
called at this office during the day. The
major portion or the excursionists , ( who
numbered about seventy-five , ) came
from Cleveland. Their surprise at find
ing a town like McCook , "away out on
the Nebraska frontier" was genuine ,
and ve might add , altogether reasona
ble , and their ideas of cow-boys and the
like were mirth-provoking indeed.

The eagerly looked for Leap Year
Ball was given by the young ladies of
our burg in the Opera Hall , Wednesday
evening , and if the energy and zest
with which these present entered into
the same be considered u criterion , the
evening was most thoroughly enjoyed
The threatening , lowering state of the
weather in the early part of the even
ing kept many from the dance , but by
10 o'clock a goodly number of dancers
had arrived , and the ball was opened
up , and the young ladies commenced
selecting partners , ( in person , the more
timia by proxy. ) The party disbanded
about 2:30 : , with pleasant memories
flitting through their brains to disturb
the limited slumber left them before
the coming morn.
We assure our readers who conyilaiu of not
getting their papers that every package of
our mall Is carefully put up about midnight ,
Thursday nights and all are in the post office
early in the morning ready for the mails goIng -
Ing in the various directions. We believe Mr.
Callahan takes great pains to see that they
are all off o'n time , but there is certainly
crookedness some where and the peculiar
thing of it is , that the complaints all come
from one direction. Frontier County Faber.
From the above article it doth appear
that Bro. Powers of the Frontier Coun
ty Faber is afflicted in about the same
manner THE TRIBUNE is and has been
for sometime , namely in his subscribers
not receiving their papers regularly and
as soon as they ought. THE TRIBUNE ,
( "I repeat it , sir , " ) is always in the
postoffice at this place every Thursday
evening- and never has failed in the
past nine months. Now our subscribers
up the Willow complain that they do
not receive the paper until Tuesday
evening , and why this is so , we are anx
ious to know. The train carrying the
mail leaves McCook at 6.15 and arrives
at Indianola at 6:34 : , A. M. , and as we
are authoritatively informed the mail
carrier OUGHT to start not earlier than
7 , A. M. , there are 26 minutes elapsing
between the time the mail reaches In
dianola from McCook , sufficient time
for the same to be sent up the creek in
the mail which goes up that morning.
The same is practically true of the
Beaver subscribers. Sometimes they
get their papers Friday and most of the
time , Tuesday of the following week ,
when the news has become old. This
state of affairs is a gross injustice to
our subscribers as well as ourselves , and
ought not to be , and we think will be
sooner or later , rectified. This business
ought to be pinned where it belongs.
This community was pained and
shocked at the announcement of the
death of John Lee , one of the first and
most favorably known citizens of our
town , which occurred at the residence
of the deceased , Wednesday morning.
Mr. Lee had been unwell ever since
shortly after the fourth , having taken
cold during a trip into the country , and
was confined to his bed two or three
days , when he got up and was around
again , although unable to do any work.
On Sunday he became much worse , and
a doctor was called , but the patient
became rapidly worse , the disease
spreading from the larger to the small
er bronchial tubes , assuming the form
of acute capillary bronchitis , and other
physicians were called in consultation ,
and although every medical attention
was given , they were powerless to stay
the fell destroyer , whose deadly fingers
were laid with such powerful grasp
upon his victim , and about 10 o'clock
on the morning of Wednesday , the
spirit of the sufferer parted company
with its earthly tenement. Death , even
under its most mitigating circumstances
is full of terror and sadness to the hu
man family , and when a person is cut
down in the bloom of manhood , it is
doubly so. The bereaved wife and
fatherless childien have the deepest
sympathy of our people.
The funeral took place from the
residence of the deceased , Thursday
afternoon , Rev. Dungan of the Congre
gational chuich conducting the services.
After services at the house , the re
mains were followed to their lasting
resting place by the Band , of which he
was a member , and a large concourse
of people.

A NUMBER of the papers of the state
are making a sensible and timely move
toward having the state laws published
in the county papers. "Ignorance of
the law excuses no one/ ' and yet the
laws are made known only through the
statutes , and but a few copies of this
book are allowed to each county.
WE have no patience with the scan
dalmongers who are trying to make this
campaign : i campaign of smut and vile
personal abuse. We do not believe that
any party or its candidate for the presi
dency can be bcnefitted by the use of
the muck-rake.
THE word "Sundayed" is frequently
used by certain journals in this state.
Will one of those papers give us the
etymology of the word. Like to hear
from the Norfolk Journal. How is it ,

THE Napolconists in .Franco arc
having n high old time in participat
ing in the quarrel between Plon-Plon ,
the heir apparent , and his son Victor ,
who ranks as prince imperial. Victor
has for spmo years been photographed as
a very virtuous and high-minded youth ,
who inherited none of the traits that
have made his father Jerome unpopular.
But the friends of the old man now
accuse him of all sorts of villainies ,
among the most venial being thu fact
that he is a habitual liar , and that he
receives his financial backing from a
notorious courtesan , one Mine. Gabriellc.
They nickname him now "Gabriellc's
darling. " Paul do Cassagnac is a par
tisan of Victor and helps to villify Plon-
Plon in turn. Upon the whole , the
imperialists arc rapidly making them
selves the laughing stock of France.
But they have much sympathy in Eu
rope outside , in all aristocratic circles ,
where it is hoped that they may some
time overthrow the republic.
