" The Red Willow grist mill is being 30 over-run with business as to require in addition , work on which is now pro gressing. The proprietors have a snug little mill , which turns out first-class svork , and is making its owners money. If white clothing , say a dress , is put iway in a dark closet or drawer , it will in time become yellow. But if it be placed in a box lined with dark blue paper , or even wrapped in dark blue iloth , it will come out as white as it jver was , no matter how long it lays. A specimen of 00-day corn was ex hibited at this office , the first of the tveek , by Geo. Starbuck , which is fully Matured , full and large. The corn was planted on the 10th of May , showing t to be genuine 90-day corn , long since jut ef the way of fall drouth or frost. In addition to the bank building , Y.

Not having the legal means of raising the money to pay the unreasonable sala- | ries of the city officers it has been neces sary to resort to schemes to compass the desired end. And a more disgrace ful travesty on the law were hard to imagine than the course pursued at the beginning of this month. We under- . stand that the police simply went around | to the gamblers and prostitutes and taxed them so muchamounting to $140 , which money instead of being placed with F.L. McCracken , the City Treasurer , to. the credit of the school fund , as the law ie- quires , was applied on the salaries of the city officers , entirely contrary to law. As a matter of law and justice the police have no more authority to lay an embar go on these outcasts , in this manner , than they have upon the most immacu late citizen amongst us. These people should be arrested , brought before the Police Judge , and fined , according to law , and the officer that pursues any other course , does so at his peril. The procedure is illegal , outrageous and nas ty , and the man who dabbles in it , throws himself open to severe criticism. Contrast the condition of affairs in Western Illinois , as described by the < Monmouth Gazette , with our owncst Western Nebraska , the "Great Ameri can Desert , " where we have plenty of moisture and superabundant crops : ' 'It would be possible but not profitable to talk long about the weather. Suffice to say that the mercury keeps up in the nineties , it doesn't rain and the drouth has probably placed the corn crop beyond redemption , even by copious showers. Stock is being shipped for want of feed and water , and all the unpleasantness of the largest dry spell for years is being endured. ' ' Last Monday afternoon , while doing some shopping at Wilcox & Fowler's store on West Dennison St. , Miss Mary Melia , was a victim of some miserable sneak thief , who relieved her of her purse containing about $25 in cash. Miss Melia had jrone over to the McEn tee House to see some samples and had placed her shopping bag , containing the purse and moneyon a shelf in the above- named store. Upon her return from the hotel , the purse and contents were gone. > No clue to the thief. The loss falls the heavier upon Miss Mary at this juncture , when she has the greatest need of it. It is a matter of humiliation and re gret that the base ball players of this city do not possess the good taste , the regard for the day , and the respect for the feelings of others , to refrain from ) playing on Sunday. The yelling and profanity of those engaged in this sport in past Sundays , has plainly been heard ai by the residents in the eastern part of the city. It is to be hoped that this reference to the matter will suggest to the base ballists of the city the proprie ty of observing the day in a more civil ized and becoming manner. in The county central committee conven G ed at Indianoia , last Saturday , in pur suance of a call of Chairman Berger. The time for holding the county con vention was settled upon for Saturday , August 21st , and Thursday , August 19th M M was recommended as the time for hold ing the various precinct caucuses. The ce basis of representation is the same as of the past two years , the vote for Regent Burnham being the criterion for this to year. Elsewhere we give the call , which contains the number of delegates from v ( each precinct. Among the officers to be elected at the coming fall election , none are of more vital importance than that of Bi County Commissioner. To this office , Jt the second .district , which comprehends thw the city of McCook , is entitled. It is w time that the people were casting around cli for some active , business man to repre trW < sent the second district on the board of W county commissioners. The time for se of holding the county convention draws on se apace. th of Last week , Dr.L. J.Spickelmierwho de of lives just northeast of the city , threshed he 0 340 busels of oats from a planting of 7 of bushels. The oats is of the white va : riety , and the threshers declare it to be the heaviest yield they ever handled in their years of experience. A neigh ev bor of the doctors also threshed Go in 1 bushels of wheat from a 3-acre patch. A very fair yield , by the way. The wet goods organ is quite profuse su with its advice to other towns "to fire out sumi the festive demi monde , that they are mi productive of no good , " etc. , but for ap "fear of giving the town a bad name , " tic you know , never raises its voice against sai that element in our city. It may be a c little difficult for that organ to "sting as i the hand that feeds it , " however.

A straight Republican elected to rep- resentlted Willow county in thehallsof assembly. The most sanguine expectations for a profitably fall trade , reali/.ed by our merchants.

The would-be representative from this pit } ' , ( who is so cute in barter and trade , ) deliver i the goods. Greater harmony in the Republican ranks , and the bourbons getting away with less of the plunder. i A candidate for representative come I forward who does not have to go to Tn- dianola to make his announcement. Some of our real estate and loan agents satisfied with the profits of their own business. Not laying an embargo on the publisher's. A man elected representative from this county who has shown the very nec- sssary qualifications of a law-abiding zitizen. Not one who has grown rich , through years of VIOLATION of law , to notorious degree. WEDDING BELLS.
