The primary department of our pub-
lie school has become so over-crowded

ing , and the other in the afternoon.

People who trade in our city frequent
ly complain to us , and in some cases
bitterly , that no provision is made for

Avenue is no more. This matter should

ing place. Will the city authorities ,
the business men or the Lincoln Land
Co. secure for those who make this their
trading point , what the people justly
iemand , a place to water their teams.
Great Reduction in Watches and
Jewelry at McCrackcn's. ;
The woman of ill-shape , who has lo ;
cated in South McCook , has caused the
citizens residing in that community to
rise up in indignation , and to make expression
pression of that feeling to the board of
trustees. The female's actions , accord
ing to the reports that have reached our
2ars , have been outrageous , and call for
\ction on the part of the authorities ,
svho should not only make an example
jf this dove , but also remember the
house on Railroad , street in their cleaning -
ing up. s
' A number of citizens of McCook met
at the waiting room in the depot ,
Wednesday evening , and completed thv

tution and by-laws were adopted and
the following officers elected :
ForemanR. , B. Archibald ; First As
sistant. , Fred S. Harris ; Second Assist
ant , J. F. Forbca ; Secretary , F. M.
Kimmcll ; Treasurer , J. A. Wjlcox ;
Steward , P. Walsh. Committees were
appointed to wait upon Mr. Hocknell ,
who has offered to present the organiza
tion with a hose cart , and in honor of
whom the company is named , and ac
quaint him with the fact of the comple
tion of the organization , and also to
meet with the next session of the Board
of Trustees and confer with them as to
the disposition of the hose , wrenches ,
etc. , now in the hands of the Board.
Other business was transacted , showing
a disposition on the part of the mem
bers of the company to go right ahead
with the work. It is to be hoped that
if the company shows itself to be de
serving that our citizens will lend a
helping hand in securing what neces
sary apparatus is to be had. We will
make fuller mention of the minutes in
our next issue.
White Bolted Corn Meal at the City
What's the matter with our real es
tate dealers in this city advertising ?
But one firm in McCook advertises the
land business to any extent , ( and the
extensive business they are doing now
gives evidence of the fact , ) while in our
neighboring towns every real estate man
seems to appreciate the value of adver
tising , as the local papers with flaming
ads. bear witness , notably Oberlin ,
where a large per cent , of land seekers
are flocking. Men in any business , who
do not advertise are liable to sit around
until they are weary , and the seat of
their well-polished pantaloons as well ,
while the judicious advertiser takes all
For pumps and pipes go to Spanogle
Last week , James Ellison of Ken-
esaw moved his herd of 134 head out to
this section. Mr. Ellison has a ranch
some ten or fifteen miles north of Mc
Cook to which he will move his stock
as socn as he can complete his arrange-
meiM-sJ'-Dr ' a well , wind mill and tanks ,
by'which to provide his stock with water.
His stock are now being held north of
Indianola until these provisions are
made. Mr. Ellison also bought a fine
trotting stallion with him.
Boston Brown Bread at the City Bak
The sight of the poor old man totter
ing on the verge of eternity , staggering
along the streets , Tuesday evening , only
sustained on his feet by the dumb ani
mals he was leading ( ? ) should have
chilled the very soul of levity , rather
than have caused mirth. Such scenes
may provoke the thoughtless observer
here to laugh , but if there be celestial
beings , who beyond the vale take cog
nizance of such things , their eyes were
moist with tears of pity and their lips
were asking mute benedictions.

At the last regular meeting of the
Board of Trustees , George Leland was
re-appointed Street Commissioner , and
his bond placed at $500. The Street
Commissioner will shortly be around
after poll taxes , and as the village is in
need of funds it is to be hoped that our
zitizens will pay the same promptly and
svithout grumbling , and thus materially
issist the Board in their work of im
provement , in which every citizen is in
terested. $300 or $400 ought to be rais-
d in this way.

ED. TRIBUNE : Permit mo through
your columns to make a report concern
ing our school. We refer more partic
ularly to the crowded condition of our
primary department. In view of the
largo attendance , wo have adopted the
plan pursued in our larger schools ,
where the accommodations arc limited ,
of dividing the department into two di
visions , and have one division attend in
the forenoon , the other , in the after
noon. That there is severe criticism ,
especially among those who arc not con
versant with the facts , is natural to ex
pect. We subjoin the following report ,
that parents and patrons may be intel
ligently informed :
No. of boys enrolled , ; ti.
No. of girls enrolled , 42.
Wnole No. enrolled , 74.
No. of Blttings , Til.
No. unrolled that are 5 years of age , -I.
No. ciiiolli'tl that at o ( I yours of ago , 21.

No. cm oiled that aru 10 years of aiu , 3.
No. em oiled that aru 11 yearH of age , - .
No. enrolled that are 13 yuars of ngo , 1.
It will be seen from the above enrolment
that about one-third of the
ment , - num
ber are only five years of age , and , while
they are legally entitled to attend , they
are too young to do well , and we believe
that it is physically an injury to many
of that age who are now attending the
public schools of the state. With these
facts before you , is it not better to have
the children of this department attend
alternately each half day , than to crowd
so many together , rendering thu teacher
powerless to do effective work , and in
flicting lasting injury to the pupils , than
to permit them all to attend at the same
Please consider that we are doing our
best for the trust committed to our
charge , and we respectfully ask your
careful consideration and co-operation.
Very Respectfully ,
