Occasionally land notices are sent to
this office through the medium of the

All such notices must be paid for in

The members of the McCook Dra
matic Company are now rehearsing
"Confusion , " which they will present
to our people on Thanksgiving evening ,
November 27th. The play is highly
spoken of , and our citizens may expect
a fine rendition of it by our home talent.
We can imagine of no more convinc
ing argument in favor of temperance
than the mute appeals made to every
honest heart in our city , almost daily.
"The proof of the pudding is in the
eating. " So , the blasting effects of li
quor is the most potent argument against
its use.
Claims are being entered largely in
Hayes county , just now. A prominent
land man informed us , the other day ,
that scores of entries were being made
in that county every week , and that the
most desirable of the land would , 'ere
long , at the present rapid rate of entry ,
be taken.
The recent disastrous prairie fire on
the range north of here originated in a
man burning a fire-guard and allowing
the fire to get away from him without
making the necessary effort to control
the fla'mes. We understand that the
Red Willow Cattle Co.'s range was
largely destroyed.

An immense prairie fire raged on the
range about 15 or 20 miles north of
McCook , last week , destroying a strip
of winter range about 12 miles wide and
70 miles long. The fire burned as far
east as the Willow , aud was only finally
controlled by the almost superhuman
efforts of a number of cattlemen who
fonght the devouring element day and
night , until the same was ultimately

We have heard it reported that cattle
in Red Willow county , Nebraska , are
affected with some unknown fatal mala
dy and quite a serious loss had resulted.

but the 12 head you refer to died over
in Gosper county , but were owned by a
McCook man. We know of no cattle
disease in this county.

Betting has two distinct aspects. For
instance , quite a different feeling agi
tates a man's soul , when , in the super
induced heat of a political campaign ,
he bravely wagers his "good money , "
than that which agitates him when he ,
by reason of betting on the wrong man
bands over the stakes to his more suc
cessful and now jubilant co-better.
But , all levity aside , the principle is
wrong , and its effects are not good.

These birds come down from the Platte

to all adjacent corn fields , etc. He re

In coming to McCook , last week , to
summon a physician to the bedside of
Lysander J. Roberts , ( notice of whose
sad and untimely death was given in last
week's TRIBUNE , ) a cowboy rode a bron
cho pony the entire distance , 45 miles
in 2 hours and 45 minutes. This won
derful exploit almost equals that of our
highly esteemed and gentlemanly con
temporary whose effulgent literary
beams illuminate the every line of The
Culbertson Sun. Only the finale was of
a different character. In the case in
hand the broncho made the same trip
the following day , while in the case of
our friend Solomon , the magnificent
mule that he assayed to drive 125 miles
in 24 hours , died on the home stretch.
Excuse us , but we must repeat those
words of fire , "the age of the average
ass is one hundred years , " and thou ,
Solomon , dear fellow , did cut that mule
off from the enjoyment of at least 86
years of unalloyed bliss and happiness.

Democratic Demonstration.
Our bourbon brethren , who have bocti
out in this cold , unfriendly world , feed
ing on the husks of defeat for the past
quarter of a century , at last have occas
ion for rejoicing and ratification , and
due advantage of that fact was taken ,
Wednesday evening. Considerable prep
aration had bepn made in the way of
torches , transparencies , and the like ,
and after the evening shades had gath
ered and thickened over the land , the
procession was formed on the corner of
Main Avenue and Dcnnison street , and
headed by the band moved out Dcnnison
street to Macfarland , thence returning
to Main , whence they proceeded along
Dennison to Madison. Traversing the
avenue as far north as Dakota street ,
the procession crossed the lust named
street to Main avenue , down which they
marched to a large bon fire , that had
been previously prepared on the prairie
on the former site of the old band stand ,
the flames of which mounted merrily
heavenward , had the effect of producing
more warmth and consequent enthusi
asm than had hitherto pervaded the
At this juncture the assembly insist
ed upon having some speeches , and Mr.
Golfer was the first to respond to the
demand. Mr. Golfer made a short , but
felisitous address , pregnant with satis
faction ana thankfulness at the victory
they were celebrating. At this point ,
in response to the prophetic vision ,
Judge Lucas came over from Macedonia
to help the speech-makers. The Judge
was in a superinduced mental state that
spawned nought else but panegyric , and
selecting railroads as the object of his
affections , this Demosthenes from Lili-
put-land , opened his mouth and spake
a highly encomiastic railroad speech.
Our venerable friend Judge Hunter
next assumed the stump and gave utter
ance to the sublime feelings of satisfac
tion and peace that now dwelt down in
the innermost recesses of his soul. The
Judge had been devout in his prayers
for Democratic victory for lo ! these
many , years , and the smile of satisfac
tion that gointillated over his counte-
hantfl was a benediction to his brethren
present. Finally a little bald-headed
rooster from Massachusetts flapped his
wings and mounted the dry goods box ,
abdia tOttes in tensely tragic proclaimed :
"Behold a curiosity a real , live Yan
kee od a Democrat. " After this pre
lude , Mr. Bull executed some of the
most mirth-provoking antics , with an
occasional audible remark , over enjoyed
on these western prairies outside ol a
minstrel show. The effect was that the
llull audience was conVulsed. Witha
few remarks by Messrs. Golfer and
Hunter , thanking the Republicans for
their gentlemanly tieatmcnt , the crowd
dispersed for refreshments.
Headmaster Phelan cut quite a dash ,
as marshal , on his broncho charger.
That bon-fire wag immenw , and the
productions on the anvil were large" .
The jollification was orderly and good-
natured , but lacked the old-time bour
bon enthusiasm.
The transparencies were numerous
and contained some strange devices , one
or two , in fact , that were not credita
ble to the Democracy. That reference
to Maria and the kid was not in good
taste , at least.
About 11 o'clock two other proces
sions , containing probably a score each
within their ranks , might have been seen
wending their tortuous courses from the
different fountains of enthusiasm. Xo
