BUCCCSS are the Probst Bros. Attention
to business and liberal advertising are

ANOTHER BRANCH H. W. Pike has
opened a branch yard at Atwood , Rawlins -
lins county , Kansas , with our energetic
young friend , C. P. Russell of the
horse-shoe-bar ranch in charge. JI.W.
now has yards at this point under his
personal supervision , at Indianola , un
der the management of E. P. Hazen ,
and also at Atwood. THE TRIBUNE
did the printing for the Atwood branch.
To THE LADIES OP McOooK You
can find the nicest lot of Millinery Goods
ever brought to the city at the Milli
nery Emporium , first door west of The
Trumpet office. Here you will find all
the novelties in Hats and Bonnets of
the latest style for ladies , misses and
children. A full line of the latest in
Veils , Hoop Skirts and Corsets ; -also ,
trinkets for decorating , and Bonnets for
the little ones. *
By reason of negligence or through
spite work and revenge a large area of
valuable range country south and north
west of McCook has been destroyed , this
spring. Such work is clearly against
the very best interests of settlers and
stockmen and should be discountenanc
ed severely. It is a little like killing
the fowl that lays the golden egg to de
stroy the native grass so extensively.

The sight of that poor miserable crip
ple in a beastly state of intoxication
to be seen at the Eating House , early
Friday morning , was enough to engage
the sympathy of every manly heart.
The party's name we know not , but his
crippled form is a well-known one to
this vicinity. We understand that he
recently sold his claim near Indianola
for $1,500 , and that he was industri
ously attempting to drink the proceeds
of the sale ( in liquid form ) down in one
day , was most distressingly apparent.
Two bottles of whisky were removed
from his pockets , while he was prostrate
on his face , unable to stand erect.
You may have noticed a number of
citizens , with the P. 0. bee in their
bonnets , receive large and important
looking missives at the postoffice on the
morning of the Ifct. Well , probably it
were just as well to be satisfied with
liaving noticed the occurrence , and peradventure -
adventure safer. Those No. 10s with
the solemn words , "Postoffiee Depart
ment , Washington , D. C. , Official Busi
ness , " on the upper right hand corner ,
contained the harmless words , "April
fool , " on the inside , hence discretion
mayhap were the better part of valor.
But , if the sensations received by the
recipients of the letters is as genuine
and enjoyable as the affair was to the
observer , the matter is not without its
recompense. Human nature was large
ly and innocently displayed.
The demand made upon our hotels ,
this week , for lodging , has been greatly
beyond their power to meet and sleep
ing room in livery barns has been at a
premium. An amusing accident hap
pened a settler recently arrived , Mon
day night , while he was enjoying the
soothing influences of sleep in the loft
of one of the barns of our town. By
some means , in his restlessness during
the night , he fell through the floor on
to the back of a horseand , for some lit
tle time it was a question of uncertain
ty whether of the twain was the more
terribly frightened. After considerable
difficulty and much coaxing the animal's
disturbed nerves were calmed and the
now thoroughly awakened sleeper climb
ed down from his perch. The affair
occasioned much merriment and was
enjoyed by all but the party himself.
The father and brother of Miss Net
tie East arrived in town , Wednesday ,
from Imlay City , Mich. , and will spend
the summer here. If satisfied with the
country , they will remain permanently.
The very highest cash price paid for
bides at Farley's Meat Market.
THE TRIBUNE has only the best in
terests of our town in view in urging
the selection of five good men and true
i to administer the affairs of our city
during the coming year. The town ol
McCook has reached an epoch in its
history , when it is of the greatest im
portance that its government be in the
hands of the most competent , energetic
and honest men within her corporate
limits : Men who will hold the liquor
license at its present figure , and men
who will sustain and enforce our ordi
nances against the vices which now
grow and flourish in our very midst ;
and for the suppression of which the
voice of our people is more clamorously
demanding every day. We can but re
iterate the suggestion of last week :
Let the business men arouse themselves
from their apparent lethargy and take
decisive steps toward forming a ticket
composed of men whose views-on the
important questions affecting our city
are square-toed and on the side of law
and order. There are no sinecures in
village government , nor should there
be any , and consequently the demand
is for the selection and election of men
of sufficient public spirit and disinter
estedness to give village affairs the at
tention they demand willingly and care
fully. We want a high license board ,
( as license seems to be demanded ) a
board that will enforce the law , a board
that will suppress houses of ill-fame
and gambling holes , and for such a
board the united- efforts of our citizens
ought to be directed.
AMUSEMENTS. The Georgia Min
strels gave an entertainment in the Op
era Hall , Friday night , to a well-filled
house. The performance was the first
of its kind ever put on the boards be
fore a McCook audience , and is pro
nounced first class.
On Monday evening Mason & Mor
gan's company rendered that old stand
by , Uncle Tom's Cabin , to the largest
audience that has ever assembled in
our Opera Hall to greet any company ;
every seat in the house was occupied ,
as well as every foot of available stand
ing room. The performance was up
to the average standard. Tuesday even
ing's entertainment hardly called out
a corporal's guard to witness it the
people of McCook evidently rating the
performance of Monday evening at its
proper value and having , as Lawyer
Marks puts it , "been there before , " re
fused to be taken in the second time.
Different parties have informed us
that two carcasses have been dragged a
little east of town still within the cor
porate limits and allowed to remain
uuburied in the neighborhood of the
crossing leading to the bridge. This
matter calls for immediate action on
the part of our authorities. The parties
who dragged the bodies to that placeif
the same can be ascertained , should be
compelled to remove the same , and
should be fined in addition. The par
ties who hauled that manure along the
railroad east of town , should also be re
quired to remove the unsightly and un
savory refuse to a more suitable locality.
A number of places in town need the
attention of the Sanitary Committee of
our Board of Trustees badly. They are
disgraceful and unhealthy.

J. E. Berger and J. C. Arbuckle re-

quently made no purchases. Joe thinks
that is the poorest and most Godforsaken
saken country he has been in many

growing and prosperous state , Missouri
does appear to a Nebraskan as being
rather tame and slow.
L. P. Brown and daughter , Miss Jen
