which showed signs of fits or rabbies ,
was promptly removed from this land

him , last Friday. Due precaution this
hot weather , may not be amiss.
The running race , Monday afternoon ,
between Dave Rogers' sorrel colt and
Dunbar's 'Buckshot" resulted in an
easy victory for the colt. The backers
of the Dunbar animal were confident of
victory and consequently lost heavily.
The dog tax ordinance has not been
largely complied with. Only about a
dozen of the multitude of worthess ! curs
in this community , we believe , are prop
erly licensed. The Police might do
some efficient work with their artillery ,
these quiet times.
It is a matter of no small pride to
THE TRIBUNE to observe its original and
selected matter largely copied by our
contemporaneous press , but we would
suggest that journalistic ethics dictates
that courtesy which gives the usual
credit to original matte.r.
We were shown a specimen of corn ,
yesterday , coming from the farm of
H. T. Church on the Willow. The
specimen was taken from a field of 100
acres , and stands over 8 feet high. Is
strong and beginning too tassel out
nicely , and can't be beaten anywhere.
As our police are apparently on friend
ly terms with those who appear to be
prominent in these affairs , it may be that
they know more about the whereabouts
of the gambling dens , etc. , than THE
TRIBUNE gives them credit for. If so ,
there existence is clearly contrary to law.

his property in this city and now has a
corps of workmen building an addition

commodious and convenient , and one of
the comfortable abodes of the city.
The Happy World Stereopticon en
tertainment , which was advertised and
billed to take place , yesterday evening ,
has been indefinitely postponed by rea-
son of the continued and excessive heat.
We are assured , however , that when the
mercury has a less "upish" tendency
the entertainment will be given in good
style , when it will doubtless be patron
ized and enjoyed. .

will lend their aid in that direction.
We have a clerk in one of our Main
Avenue stores who erstwhile has play-
ed Hamlet. He recently had occasion
to attempt to fit a No. 2 shoe on abash- ,
ful maiden's No. 8 pedal appendages. ' ,
He finally resigned the bootless task
with the soliloquy : " 2 B o.not 2 B j
that is the question. ' '
Crop reports from all over the coun
try are unanimous to the effect that
while crops are not yet suffering much
for moisture , a little rain is needed and
will make things hum. As the crops j
are to-day , Western Nebraska is proba
bly in better condition than any other
portion of the state or union.
No. 1 , west bound , Friday night , was
composed of four sleepersseven coaches
and three baggage and express cars.
The heavy passenger traffic is explained
by the fact that many are already going
to the national encampment at San |
Francisco. The train was over an hour
late upon reaching this division station.
The short-order joint man McCam-
mon came near furnishing an item of
interest , last Saturday evening. A
lamp exploded , thereby affording a su
perfluous amount of light , but McC.
grasped the situation at once and hurled
the lamp into the street. What an item
there might have been for insurance
companies had the little glim got in its

Monday , moved into their new quarters
over the First National bank , lately oc
cupied by Jennings & Starbuck. These
gentlemen have fixed their new rooms
up in excellent style , with brussels car
pet , etc. , and certainly have handsome
law offices , wherein they can do busi
ness much more satisfactorily than in
their old location.
The people living on and in the vicini
ty of Brush creek indulged in a round
of pic-nic festivities , last Friday and
Saturday , which they will remember
with sensations of pleasure for many
days. On Saturday , there was coupled
with the pic-nic , an exhibition by the
school children under Miss Kanouse ,
which was a pleasant feature of the oc
casion , one enjoyed by old and young.
These little neighborhood affairs go
far toward making lighter life's duties ,
and should be continued as frequently
The second suit brought by Frank
Everts against L. K. Moore and Ed.
Starbuck for "wilfully and maliciously
killing a horse , " was tried before Squire
Colvinlast Friday , and again dismissed.
The killing of the horse , of which men
tion was made in last week's issue , was
in all human probability , an accident ,
and we are informed that they , the de
fendants , offered Mr. Everts $125 , in
time , for the horse killed , which offer ,
for reasons best known to the proprie
tor , was refused , and the case now
stands in statu quo , as it were.
Well our boys partially redeemed
themselves , yesterday , in their game
with the Arapahoe boys , and doubtless
would have won the game had they kept
cool , and been satisfied with the rulings
of the umpire , who performed his part ,
all in all , in a satisfactory manner. It
required ten innings to decide , and the
Arapahoes finally came out victorious in
a score of 16 to 15. The contest was
interesting throughout , and was wit
nessed by quite a large concourse of peo
ple , not a few of the ladies being pres
ent. Considerable money changed
Last Sunday morning , the Congrega
tional pulpit was considerably occupied
by Charles Whitney of Chicago , the
considerableness of that occupancy be
ing over 60 consecutive minutes , with
the thermometer ambitiously climbing
above the hundreds. We feel constrain

maritan that cometh over from Macej j
donia to help us poor sinners even 60 }
minutes worth consecutively will doubtj j

will beyond a peradventure be entitled j

extent in farm lands in the eastern part of
Edward Ervin is a man after our own heart.
He stepped in , yesterday , renewed his own
subscription one year , and had THE TKIUUXE
sent to two different parties in Missouri. He
reports that continued dry weather will cut

a good crop barring hail or storm.

and made THE TKIBUNE a short call , yester
day. He reports the condition of small grain
and com as much better here than that of

reduced the possible yield. This sounds

ple and papers are wont to speak of the dry
and sandy states to the west.
