The sad occurrences of the past week
or two cannot fail of setting in motion
certain trains of thought that will be
productive of future good. Different
agencies are at work in this world , and
different means are sometimes employed
to make clear the duty we owe to our
fellow man. As a matter of chivalry
and those who occupy the plains ,
hills and valleys of this great west pride
themselves in its possession the strong
ought to support the weak. Be awake
If the sterner portion of the denizens
of this vicinage have indulged in more
than their wonted amount of profanity ,
this week , we bespeak- that "He who
knoweth our frame , that we are but
dust , " will exercise toward them a cor
responding degree of charity and for
giveness. All who have been engaged
in the inspiring task of joining all-sized
stove pipes , and the performance of
other duties connected with setting up
stoves , will doubtless appreciate this
School facilities do attract. J. P.
Matthews and Mr. Arbuckle of Atwood ,
Kansas , have purchased lots adjoining
Chas. Noble on the north , and will com
mence the erection of houses , ( lumber
for that purpose is being hauled on the
ground ) at once , and move their families
here. These gentlemen are of the solid
and substantial kind , and will be an ac
quisition to our town. They have both
contracted for houses 28 ft. square.
The time will come when McCook will
be headquarters for the majority of
stock raisers of this section.
On Friday afternoon a large delega
tion of our people went down to Indi
anola to attend the county fair. The
band , in which our citizens take a very
proper pride , accompanied and headed
the delegation , enlivening the occasion
with some of their most inspiring strains.
The boys marched out to the fair
grounds and there discoursed some mu
sic that received the hearty approbation
of those in attendance. In the evening
a number attended the ball given in
McCartney's Hall by the Indianola
band , returning home on No. 1 , having
enjoyed a very pleasant trip.
The intelligence that Abe Constable
had died at Bennett , this state , on Fri
day morning , was received by many of
our citizens , to whom he was personally
known , with expressions of sorrow and
regret. Mr. Constable was kindhearted
ed and indulgent , and but for drink
that dread curse that yearly removes
from this scene of action so many of
those whose qualities of heart and mind
are transcendant might be amongst
us , an honored and respected citizen.
He was buried at Bennett , where he
formerly lived , and where two children ,
who preceded him into the great un
known , are buried , his wife and daugh
ter from this place being present. The
bereaved ones have the deepest sympa
thy of the community.
Parties entered Geo. Hocknell's resi
dence , Saturday night , with burglarious
intent , and after making a complete
survey and taking the bearings of things ,
left the house without , so far as known ,
disturbing anything. The burglars used
parlor matches , the marks made in
striking them against the wall showing
that they went almost all through the
building. Partially burnt matches were
even found in the closets. Mr. Hock-
nell , who was absent at the time , re
turned Sunday night , and by fixing a
contrivance on the door knob ascertain
ed that a second attempt to enter the
house was made Sunday night , parties
being frightened away by the article
placed on the door knob falling to the
floor. Apropos we suggest to our citi
zens the advisability of making prepar
ations for these outlaws against peace
and property. They are numerous in
this vicinage just now , and unless due
precautions are observed the burglaries
Df last fall will be duplicated. Don't
stop to interrogate these scoundrels ,
but insinuate a Joad of bird-shot into
the adipose tissue of their anatomy
tvithout any preliminary ceremonies.

THE COUNTY FAIR.
Tin1 third minimi meeting . f the Hot
Willow County Fair was held at Indian
ola on Thursday , Friday and Saturday
of last week. The grounds were ii
about the same shape as they were lasl
season , with the exception that anothei
building had been erected in which tc
exhibit the fancy work that the Indict
and others might bring. Tic | race
course , corrals , etc. , were repaired , ant
arrangements made for a largci display
than last ye'ar.
The best features of the fuir was the
display of vegetables , and in this line
Red Willow county can challenge the
world. If there is any spot on thin
terrestrial sphere where can be grown
larger and finer beets , potatoes , toma
toes , parsnips , carrots , onions , pump
kins , cabbage , pop corn and field corn
than was exhibited by Messrs. Fitch ,
Hotze , Buck , Helm and others , we
would like to hear of its location. All
who examined the display of vegetables
were unanimous in the verdict that they
had never seen anything better in that
department. And Bodwell's Beaver
beats , weighing as they did , as much as
32 pounds , were mastodonic.
The exhibits made of stock were very
fair for a new country , where the breed
ing and raising of blooded stock is of
recent date. The Spring Creek Cattle
Co. had two pens of Ilcrefords and
Short Horns that averaged well. Sen
ator Dolan also had a large bunch of
Short Horns on exhibition from his fine
herd. J. F. Helm of the Willow was
on hand with a fine lot of Herefords and
Short Horns that gave indications of
excellent handling and feeding. Mr.
Helm exhibited some sleek , fat cattle.
I. J. Starbuck had a number of Hoi-
steins there j also two blooded bulls of
the Holstein and Hereford strains , that
are amongst the best in the county.
A. E. Lang , who is engaged more par
ticularly in raising blooded stock , ex
hibited a1 small bunch of his excellent
stock. Royal Buck and Chas. Hotze
each had a bunch of fine grade calves
at the fair that attracted considerable
attention. Mr. Buck also a handsome
premium colts. Mr. Hotze exhibited a
number of brag milk cows. Thos. Clark
entered a magnificent yearling horse
that was especially commented upon.
There were other exhibitions of stock
that had been taken away before our
reporter was on hand , that were worthy.
J. M. Edmiston of Lincoln , State
Agent of the Union Central Life Ins.
Co. of Cincinnati , is in town this week ,
and has paid Mrs. Auelia Lee , Two
Thousand dollars , the full amount of a
policy her husband , John A. Lee , ( re
cently deceased ) held in taid company ,
payment being made nearly two months
before the claim was due. Mr. Lee
had paid but one year's premium , as
policy was taken October IGth , 1883 ,
Had he lived until the age of 51 he
would have drawn the two thousand
himself , ( policy being an endowment )
his full payment in that event would
have been one thousand and ninety del
lars. Mr. Edmiston has a large list
here among our business men , and is
increasing it each trip. His company
is the only Regular Life Co. in the
State of Ohio , and one of the most pros
perous and prudently managed in the
country. They issue policy upon the
most approved plans , their specialty
being endowments at regular life rates.
We believe our citizens appreciate this
solid and honorable company and will
continue to patronize it.
We use Leis' German Baking Powder
and prefer it to any we have ever tried ,
and we have tried them all. Can also
say the same thing of their Fruit Ex
