"ALL FOR $11.05" The tight rope
performance given by the young gym
nast , Tuesday afternoon , was witnessed
by quite a number of poeple. The pro
gram was executed in most respects up to
the standard , and supplemented by the
gratuitous antics of an individual well
internally decorated with coffin varnish
offered considerable amusement for the
Standard Hallady wind mills at Span *
ogle & Rinker's.
A week or two ago one of the then
numerous tin-horn gamblers anplied to
Supt. Campbell for a-job. You may
imagine his surprise and consternation
when he was quietly , but firmly admonished
ished that the company was not hiring
pimps and tin-horns ; that the company
had no trouble in getting all the help
necessary from among honest and reli
able young men. Exit tin-horn.
Boston Brown Bread at the City Bak
The test exhibition of the Harden
Hand Grenade given by the gentlemen
from Lincoln , Friday evening , was , we
believe , considered a very satisfactory
affair by all who witnessed it. Nearly
every business man in town invested in
one or more cases of grenades , thereby
showing their confidence in them as fire
extinguishers , and as being especially
effective in the first stages of a , fire.
For pumps and pipes go to Spanogle
The average American's bump of ap
preciation of the humorous is large.
This was clearly demonstrated , Tues
day afternoon , during the tight-rope
performance. The performer's imita
tion and mimicry seemed to "strike the
observers where they lived , " and called
forth hearty applause , while the more
artistic part of the program received no
such marks of approval.
AU grades and qualities of Shingles
at Pike's Lumber Yard.
Seven car-loads of sheep billed to
James Wonder of Culbertson , passed
through this station , Friday evening.
They were shipped from Wymore , this
state , by Mr. Wonder , who was on the
train personally attending to the ship
ment. A number of car-loads of cattle
and horses also composed the train.
For whom and destination we were un
able to ascertain.
A full line of Pumps and Pump fit
tings , at Spanogle & Rinker's.
A car-load of grade Percheon Norman
mares , shipped by Dunham of Wayne ,

ters at Denver , for their range on the
Box Elder , Lost Creek , Kiowa and
South Platte , passed through this sta
tion , last Friday on 83. The car which
is specially adapted for horses , con
tained 15 head , valued at $20.000 , and
is the second shipment this spring.

During a local prairie fire which burn
ed north of McCook , Monday , the home
and household goods of Mrs. Hanlein
were entirely destroyed , leaving the
family in urgent need. The members
of the household were kindly cared for

aors , who have been interesting them
selves , the past few days , in getting
means to build the family another house ,
and to in a measure replace the house-

Another petition for saloon license ,
that of M. Stern of Hastings , has been
circulating around town , this week , for
signatures. Let the good work contin
ue and prosper , fellow-citizens , saloons
are among the noble institutions of man ,
wherein our young receive superb edu
cations. Saloons teach and impress
their lessons upon the youthful mind
and heart so deeply that no power short
of the infinite is able to undo the work.
These lessons taught , fathers anc
mothers , being as fixed as eternity , and
being productive of such blessings , fi
nancial , physical , mental , moral and
spiritual , lining our coffers with yellow
gold , storing our minds with knowledge ,
relieving the distress of the poor , heal
ing the broken heart of the widow and
clothing the orphan.in fact being the pan
acea for all the ills to which man is heir ,
THE TRIBUNE sanctions , with all good
citizens , the saloon , and wishes them
god-speed in' their errand of love and
mercy. Anything that will lighten the
burdens of the oppressed , make more
comfortable the poor and wretched , like
the saloon , should engage our most he
roic efforts , and they will. We want
Great Reduction in Watches and

The justice court over which Esquire
Colvin presides was the scene of a
rather humorous suit , Saturday evening
in the which beer was a large and po
tent clement. It appears that Jolin
Everts , with two boon companions ,
Herrs Bumbaugh and Fullgrabe , went
up to Joe Braun's bar , and that Everts
ordered drinks for the party , stating in
answer to Joe's inquiry as to whether
he ( Everts ) ' had any money , that he
( Everts ) had a quarter. After dispos
ing of the beer , it further appears that
Everts invited Braun to go to that lo
cation , where history informs us that fuel
is unnecessary , for his money. Shortly
thereafter Everts decided to quit the
saloon through the earnest solicitation
of Joe's muscular development , and
Everts thereupon brought suit against
Braun for assault. The case attracted
considerable attention by reason of its
decidedly laughable features. Braun
was fined $5 , together with the costs ,
making about $20. The case was ap
pealed to the district court.

It is very evident that one man is un
able to handle the mail received at this
office , and the bondsmen , in whose hands
this office now remains , ought to meet
this demand of the public service prompt
ly. Mail matter is accumulating , and
decisive steps should be taken to insure
the patrons of the office prompt and ac-
urate distribution and delivery of mail.
The people are much more deeply in-
Crested in having the matter of post
master settled than in the particular
choice. The present quarters and fa
cilities are entirely inadequate to the
increased business of the office , and the
people look forward with intense eager
ness to the time when the long needed
enlargement and improvement will oc
cur. Brethren , let us make this a
special subject of prayer.

Without deigning to exchange words
with the illiterate monte-bank , whose
jlack-guardisms have appeared weekly
n the "Blow Hard , " against the edi
tors of THE TRIBUNE , we simply request
all our advertisers to call and satisfy
themselves that we have , as we claim ,
the largest list of bona fide , paying sub
scribers of any journal in Red Willow
county. To be sure , "feminine dude"

the oderiferous allusion for this once , )
cannot be beaten at its own game.
