This is the way the railroad boys

The foundation for LaTourette's
hardware store is being raised twelve

Just a little correction. That ante

Segrist , Howe & Co.'s Great Monster
Aggregation showed at this place , Mon
day night. The canvass was pretty well
filled and the performance received its
full meed of approval , rather out of
proportion to the deserts of the same ,
however , as the circus can be safely
catalogued in the lit called "snide. "
An evidence of the great increase in
the population of this section of coun
try is to be seen in the immense amount
of lumber and supplies uow going out
of this town. Great quantities cf freight
are being hauled to Kansas also , show
ing that Decatur and Rawlins counties
are sharing largely in the increase of
Through courtesy of Mr. Hotze. agent
for the Crete Nurseries , we enjoyed
some excellent varieties of grapes grown
by that well-known firm at Crete. We
did not learn the names of varieties , but
can fully attest their excellence in taste
and flavor. We also placed on exhibi
tion a number of specimen apples grown
at the same nursery.
Dr. Willey went up to Parks , Monday
night , to attend to the injuries received
by a step-son of Aug. Plasmyere , the
section boss at that point , while firing
oft an old blunderbus that had been
overloaded. The gun bursted and inaif-
gled the young man's hand horribly.
The doctor hopes to save the lacerated
member , and the injured man has come
down to MeCook to rei-eive treatment.
A new residence is being erected on
the hill near the school house by Mr.
Ludwick of Onargo , HI. , the gentleman
who purchased A. McGr. Robb7s claims.

The editor made a trip to the western
poition of tlitf stat6 last week and was
agreeably surprised to see the advanced
stage of improvements and civilization
along the route. Crops of all kinds
looked well.Vc passed through thriving - j

ed , and noticed many herds of fine cat
tle , everything bearing evidence * > f en

There was an apt illustration , a hand
some fashion-plate , of the beauty and
general-symnictry of the Father Hub-
bard , at the depot , Sunday night. The
instructions had been implicitly observ
ed : That garment of the finest lin
en which is supposed to adorn the
wearer's manly breast was artistically
draped adown his nether extremities , a
la F. II. , producing a wicrd and fantas
tic effect in the gloaming.
We have an excellent communication
from Culbertson on our table , that we
are unable to publish by reason of the
writer failing to attach his name to his
epistle. We can never deviate from
our rule , name of writer must be signed
to all communications not for publi
cation but as an evidence of good
faith. If the writer will send his name ,
there is much of interest in his letter
that we will take pleasure in producing
next week.
Probably you have observed an unus
ual buoyancy of spirits about W. C.
LaTourette and Dr. Johnson , and were
at a loss to account therefor. Well ,
the facts in the case are that St. Peter
mu&t have been drowsy and in a meas
ure careless about the gates celestial ,
Sunday , and allowed two of the little
ones up there to wander out into this
stern world. Whether we have prop
erly located the responsibility or not ,
W. C purposes in his heart to adopt
the girl , and our "big medic" the boy.
Of a verity.
A number of our denizens arc now
engaging in the cheerful and healthful
occupation called in local parlance ,
"Setting up with the sick. ' ' The exi
gencies of this game are such that
whereas some enter into the same with
zeal , health and a replete wallet immediately -
diately after the arrival of the pay-car ,
in a few short days they are the happy
possessors of none of the above beatif-
ics. "And thus runs the world away. ' '
In the kindly dispensation of Provi
dence have we the "suckers" ( and
many there be ) and the "bleeders" 1
in numbers few.
The social given at the residence of
W. 0. Moody , under the auspices of
the Independent Order of Good Tem
plars , Friday evening last , called together -
gether a goodly number of the members t
of that order and friends , all of whom
enjoyed the short literary program , the
music and social intercourse of the
evening in a manner encouraging to
those having the affair in charge. The
members of this order purpose , at stated
periods during the coming winter , giv
ing other socials , which we have every
hope will be largely attended , and in 1
which great interest will doubtless be
taken and much good done.
By reason of a press of other matters
we omitted to mention last week the
departure of Mark Morris and family
for Western Nebraska , where they go to
reside permanently. Mark designs go
ing into the stock business in Red Wil
low county , near MeCook , aud hopes by
being relieved from the hard work and
drudgery incident to crop f arming to
regain his health which has suffered in
that style of farming. He is an enter
prising , wide awake man and he and his
estimable wife are acquisitions any com
munity may be glad to make. The
Tribune and their many friends here a
wish them health , wealth and unbound
ed prosperity in their western home.
Lineville ( la. ) Tribune.
The body of one , John Coville of
Cambridge , was found along the rail
road track about one and a half miles
cast of Cambridge , Sunday morning ,
bearing marks indicating that he had
been struck by an engine , although none
of the east-bound engineers saw him on
the track , Saturday night. ] t appears
that the young man had been cutting
broom corn in the neighborhood of Bur
ton's Bend and was returning to his
iome in Cambridge. Nothing further
: s known other than the fact that he
was found dead in the weeds a short
distance from the track at the point
above mentioned , and that he bore
marks indicating that he came to his
death by being struck by a locomotive.

hopes were entertained.
Messrs. Whitaker & Jackson , after
making due preparations to burn anoth
er kiln of brick , abandoned the work
and this week started for MeCook where
t\\cy \ expect to take charge of a yard al
ready in operation. They also succeed
ed in getting a homestead each within
day's drive of that town , which we
think was the principal inducement for
them to move. We are sorry to learn
that they have concluded to make this
move as they-were producing an excel
lent quality of brick , and a brick yard
is something that cannot well be dis
pensed with at this place. However we
svish them success in their new location ,
and congratulate MeCook people on the
addition to their town. They are men
who understand their business , and will
be found upright in their dealings.

A.MONU the most interesting features
of the Nebraska state fair are the dis
plays made by the far-west counties ,
which only a few years ago were consid
ered non-productive on account of alack
of rain in that section of the state. " It
is a well-known fact that the rain belt is
constantly extending westward over this
state. Regions that , formerly were rare
ly ever visited by a rain storm now have
an abundance of rain , and the soil has
proved to be as productive as that in
any part of Nebraska. Lands that were
formerly thought to be fit only for gra/-
ing purposes arc now being tilled and-
abundant crops are being produced. In
a few years there will be but very little
land left in Nebraska that is not used
for agricultural purposes.
