Doing good business. Terms easy. For par ticulars , address THE TRIBUNE. A meeting of the members of the Mu sical Union is called , Saturday evening , in the Opera Hall. Important business is to be transacted , and a full attend ance is desired. Three car-loads of fine grade heifers were unloaded at this point , Monday evening. They were shipped here from the cast by parties whose names we were unable to ascertain. A blacksmith shop and feed stable combined are going up on Railroad street , opposite Pike's lumber yard. Small & Co. . are building the same , and hope to open up for business at an early date.

Don't forget the fact that at Metro politan Drug Store you will receive the worth of your money every time. Parents should see that their childrer start to school the first day. This will aid the teachers in classifying and orga nizing. At the office of the Spring Creek Cat tle Co. may be seen samples of some very fine sod corn , grown on the compa ny's land , near Indianola. The livery and feed stable of B. F. Olcott is being considerably enlarged by the addition of a commodious shed. B , F. is spreading himself , as it were. We are requested to announce a meet ing of the W. C. T. U. at the residence of Mrs. J. B. Mcserve , Tuesday after noon , from 8 to 4 o'clock , Mountain lime. Remember , school opens on Monday morning. Children will materially as sist the teachers in putting the school in working order by beginning with the first day. That "politics makes strange bed fellows" is a truthful old saw , and that certain associations will sometimes place people in awkward positions is equally true. Well , it will. It is rumored that the B. & M. has leased the St. Joe bridge , and will here after make that their route ta Chicago. It is stated that by this route the time from Chicago tj Denver is shortened some five or six hours. We are informed that J. .E. Cochran has purchased a lot adjoining the one upon which his house now rests , and that he will move his building on to the same at an early date. The sale was made by H. C. Rider. The Git } ' Restaurant lias changed hands , Mr. Goodlier retiring to his claim south of McCook , and J. Goodenberger assuming thu management and proprie torship. Business is continued at the old stand on Main avenue. Extensive preparations for feeding this winter have been made bv stock- V raisers. Thousands of tons of hay , millet , sorghum , etc. , have been put in stack , and should the coming winter be a severe one , this preparation will have been a wise provision. An exchange puts the following "pos er" : "When should a cow go dry ? " That's a pretty hard nut to crack , but while there may be some question as to when they should run dry , they usually go dry after the supply of the lacteal fluid fails at any rate. Lytle Bros , have just received the most complete assortment of Heating Stoves ever brought into Red Willow County ; including the latest styles of Base Burners. A complete assortment of Soft Coal Burners. Wood Heating Stoves of all descriptions. Rev. P. C. Johnson , Presiding Elder of this district , will preach in Menard's Hall , to-night. ( Thursday , Oct. 9th ) and hold the First Quarterly Conference at the close of the meeting. Official mem bers of the M. E. society will please be present. Services will begin at 7 Moun tain time. One of the adorning features at this sanctum is a sample of corn grown by D. J. Osborn of the Willow. There is no question but that the corn is fine , be ing large and well filled. Mr. Osborn has a thousand bushels just as good as the samples left at this office. We have seen none better. The Leis German Baking Powder Co. ivill give $500 to any Chemist or Bak ing Powder Co. if they find any injuri- 3us or deleterious substance in the Leis Grerman Baking Powder. It is the only Baking Powder that is advertised abso lutely pure , and has never been disput ed by any of its competitors. Sold by 3. H. Rogers. For pure drugs and medicines go to Metropolitan Drug Store. White and black mustard seed and celery seed at Metropolitan Drug Store , J. A. Richardson , who has recently successfully conducted a class in Indian ola , is in town with a view of organiz ing a music class. He will be around to see our people at their houses , and we hope they will give him a hearty support in this important matter. Call at LaTourette's and see that magnificent Hard Coal Base Burner that he is giving away to purchasers of Heat ing Stoves. Each purchaser of a heat er receives a ticket for the drawing , which takes place January 25 , 1885. Parties drawing the stove and not wish ing to take it will receive $30 in cash. Dent fail to call and see it. 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 and alert. 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 invocation. 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. PERSONAL POINTERS.

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. STOCK EXHIBITS. 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 tracts. [ Signed ] A. S. McCuLLOCH , Steward Kansas Deaf and Dumb Asyl um , Olathe , Kansas. This certainly speaks in high praise of the Leis Ger man Baking Powder. You have only to ive it a trial to fully indorse the above.

THK young men of this free and inde pendent satrapy who do not manipu late "the ribbons" in the capacity of family coachman and who arc desir ous of committing civil suicide , will have to be expeditious about the matter. As a towering climax to the "tales of woo" that have been going the land over , [ jer the associated dispatches , comes the startling intelligence that a coachman , lias eloped with two girls , and coming from the Buckeye state the report must needs be true.
