Five car-loads of fine-haired Herefordg , consigned to a western point , passed through this station , last Friday evening. They are making special and exten sive arrangements to celebrate Chil dren's Day at the M. E. church , next Sunday. The sympathies of THE TRIBUNE are with the people of Stockville first , last and all the time. Do valiantly boys and stay with the ship. The members of the Christian church on Red Willow Creek are building a house of worship , which will be com pleted in the near future. The 0. R C. held a meeting in the city , Sundarat , which Conductors Sage , Dennison and Lyman of Red Cloud were present , among others. Are the authorities ignorant of the location of the gambling den on West Dennison street , or are they not dispos ed to enforce the law against gaining ? The Cliif-Rosc case was settled on Monday by Cliff giving bond in the sum of $500 to support the child , should it become a county charge. Ah , there ! A decidedly odoriferous specimen of the genus mephitis , commonly called skunk , made life a burden on parts of Main and Dennison streets , Saturday evening. We desire to call the particular at tention of those interested to the post ponement of the Fitzgerald stock sale at Lincoln until June IGth. See adver tisement in another column. Per notice appearing elsewhere in this issue it will be seen that Messrs. Anderson & Boehl have dissolved part nership by mutual agreement. Mr. Anderson will continue the business. REAL ESTATE A. C. Modi recently sold his two claims , a few miles north west of the city , for a consideration of $1,900 cash. The real estate market is not brisk , but prices remain fairly stiff. stiff.A A slight collision occurred at Indian ola , last Friday evening , between two freight trains , which had orders to meet at that point. The. cow-catchers of both locomotives were damaged a little. Some alleys in the business portion of the city are in a wretched and dis gracefully filthy condition. The health of the comnmnit } ' , as warm weather comes on apace , demands absolute cleanliness. The organization of a base ball club is being talked of and will doubtless be accomplished. The indications are that the "willow and sphere" will receive considerable attention , this summer. The talent is here. The park block is all there , but the trees , shrubbery , artistically laid out walks , with grass plats and posey beds , et cetera , et cetera , are non est as usu al. The harvest is plentiful , but the laborers are few very. From a personal letter we learn that Mrs. R. H. Hamilton and family arrived from Mississippi , where they have been spending the winter , Tuesday. Mr. H. will arrive in a few days , having gone by way of Michigan on some business. Perforce * of moral cowardice , the Democrat is painfully silent on social rottenness loci , "because it gives thu city a bad namebut how its cork-screw manipulator does roll the Cambridge affair under his tongue as though it were a dainty morsel. In the suit brought by Berger & Mishler against Daniels and Ends of * the Beaver , for selling mortgaged prop erty , the defendants were placed under t' ' bond to appearatthe next session of the . ' District Court to answer for the above j offence , which in the eyes of the law is 1 a serious one. i The success of C. D. Palmer , one of the West Dennison street hardware men , it is "ratifying to otaisrvo , his been must encouraging , and is due in a large measure to the fair , square dealings of the proprietor and to strict attention to business. Such methods bring their own reward. A separate high school building is among the not distant possibilities. A creditable high school building , with the corresponding apparatus and facilities , would bring many students from various parts of southwestern Nebraska , and would assist materially in advertising and building up our city. The physicians report considerable sickness , typhoid fever , in a mild form being the most prevalent. Too much attention cannot be paid to the laws of health. Look to it , particularly , that your premises are thoroughly cleaned up. A cheap disinfectant lime may be used to a good advantage. Clean liness is imperative. The Dunbar Comedy Co. favored the city with two performances , Saturday , the evening play , we are informed , be ing fairly attended. During the pre sentation of the evening's program half of the seats fell down , happily without ; ! injury to anybody. The company went to Oberlin , Sunday , where they will astonish the natives. On Monday morning of this week , W. C. LaTourette took charge of his old hardware stand on Main Avenue , having purchased the same from C. K. Lawson. THE TRIBUNE is glad to see Will back in the traces again , and wishes him successful sailing. Mr. Marquis will remain with us at least until he has collected the outstanding accounts of the out-going proprietor. Elsewhere in this issue appears the program of exercises for decoration day , which will be observed on May 31st. The exercises of the day will be proper ly and appropriately under the auspices and direction of J. K. Barnes Post , No. 207 , G. A. R. , of this city. The graves of comrades Chester Ward and Ira Wickwirewe , believeare , the only ones to be decorated , as is the beautiful custom. We take great pleasure in announcing that the faculty of the State University have placed our city schools upon the University List , thus securing to grad uates of the schools of this place admis sion to the University without examina tion. We take pride in chronicling the Fact that our city schools are rapidly as consistent with thoroughness , taking rank with the first schools of the state , and that our graduates may , if they have the means and inclination , enter upon the University course. Repeatedly has our attention been called to the decaying , festering car casses scattered along the roads leading from the city , especially that one south. Another letter , this week , from one of our country people , calls to mind the disagreeable fact that these stench and disease producing nuisances have in no wise been abated , and that the same re main , in some cases right in the high way , contrary to all law and common sense. Where are the minions of the law , whose duty it is to look after such things ? It is simply preposterous to believe that this condition of roads can continue unattended to. Duck hunting comes high , but the boys must have it. On last Friday , a couple of railroad boys engaged in the fascinating , but prohibited sport on Jno. Whittaker's pond on the valley south of the river , which cost them just $1 and costs , or in the total , $8.75. Mr. Whit- taker claims that $100 wont pay the losses he has sustained in killed and maimed stock , and if repeated warnings Fail to bring about the desired result , a little legal suasion will have to be re sorted to , as in this case. He isdeter mined to abate the nuisance , so that nimrods can train their sails according ly , or take the consequences. On Saturday afternoon , the hand some black carriage team of W. H. Dav enport of Culbertson , indulged in a ter rific runaway , down through Dennison street , fortunately with inconsiderable damage , although the thoroughfare was quite filled with people and teams at the time. The runaway was occasioned by the breaking of the king bolt of the vehicle. The driver was violently pre cipitated to the ground , and was unable to hold the now thoroughly frightened team , which dashed down the street with the above effect. One of the horse's hoofs was slightly injured , and Tom Campbell's picket fence , as well as the front wheels of the wag6n were some what the worse for the affair , which was intensely exciting for a few moments. & * . It seems that outrages arc not entire- 'ly ' confined to the "city on the lake , " but that uur own peaceful Driftwood f was the scene of a 'bull-dozing , tenor- izing affair , of a disgraceful character. It seems that John O'Donnell , W. W. Armstrong , A. H. Bailer and others have instituted contest against certain claims in the locality , which has stirred up the ire of an organized body of men , who are not disposed to have those claims contested. Consequently , on last Wednesday a week , a number of this organization went to the place of John O'Donnell and with threats , so arc information goes , attempted to coerce him into withdrawing his contest. As previous threats are said to have been made , this demonstration terribly excit ed and terrified the family of O'Donnell } as well as those of the neighbors above- named. The informant further avers that the witnesses in these cases have been threatened by this organization , and that they express fear of bodily harm , if they testify. It is immaterial what the provocation may be , bull-doz ing demonstrations and measures such as the above are reported to be , are in famous and cowardly , and should not be tolerated. If the parties whose lands are under contest have complied with the law , they have nothing to fear from the law , but if , on the other hand , they have failed , they ought and doubt less will lose their claims , and unlawful measures will not avial them anything. We received a pleasant call from Dr. Presson , this week , who has been spend ing a few days in our city looking after the interests of the Western Mutual Be nevolent Association of Beatrice , Neb. The Dr. has written up 12 or 15 of our leading business men , and organized a Local Board , for the better protection of the policy holders and the company's interests. We are pleased to note that this enterprising company is rapidly get ting to the front , and under its present efficient management , its low rates and popular plans of insurance it certainly commends itself to the confidence of everyone desiring mutual insurance. In answer to the fool tirade in this week's Courier , we would simply remark that we thought we were advisedly in formed about the non-building of the bridge over the Republican southwest of Indianola , as we received it from an Ash Creeker himself. As to "fraud , ly ing and deception , " Bishop knows more about it practically and theoretically than any man in Red Willow county. Keep your nether garments on , Georgie , keep perfectly cool. Complaint is very general about the wretched condition of the water from the city mains , and examination shows thai the wells are at present surrounded by stagnant , surface water , which fact doubtless explains the matter in part. The company should see to it that the source from which the city derives its water supply is as pure as may be , as pure water is most essential to good health. A partnership has been formed by W. M. Sanderson of our city and E. G. Bean , late of New York City , a scenic and sign painter of great merit. Mr. Bean has come to stay , and the firm is prepar ed to do any kind of work in their line , from plain painting to the finest fresco work. The scenery recently painted by Mr. Bean is a creditable sample of what they are able to do in that line. A singing class will be organized in this city , about the last week in this month , by A. G. Bixler , who has gained considerable note as a teacherand direc tor. He expects to spend two or three weeks in the city , and our singing peo ple should avail themselves of this op portunity to develop and improve their talent in this line. The brightening effects of paint are everywhere observable at the Frees & Hocknell Lumber Co.'s headquarters , this week. Both the interior and exter ior have been remembered. A neat wooden awning replaces the old canvas one , which was somewhat the worse for wear. The eye of the general public is irre sistibly attracted to that fine specimen of painting at Hayden's. For a real delicate tint , it takes the linen off the shrubbery completely. CHILDREN'S DAY. Children's Day services will be held at the M. E. church , next Sunday , May 16that 10:30 : , A. M. , 3 P.
