The Pacific Junction , Ta. , and McCook ,
Neb. , railway postoifice route has been
changed to run via Kenesaw and Uold-
rcge , Neb. , instead of Amboyand Bepub-
lican City , Neb. The decrease in the
distance is 18.3G miles , making the
whole distance 208.14.
The grist mill project remains in statu
quo , with slight hopes , from present
indications , of materializing. It is not
necessary for us to add that this is an
unfortunate mistake. McCook really
ought to have a grist mill , and a good
one at that. We hope the matter may
assume a more promising aspect.
It would be well for the sanitary con
dition of this city if every citizen prompt

the miniou of the law to pounce upon
you , but clean up at once and thoroughly.

On Tuesday morning , of this week ,
Mr. and Mrs. Ed. J. Scott were called
upon to mourn the loss of their infant
son. For prudential reasons the remains
of the little one were tenderly com
mingled with the dust of Mother Earth ,
in Fairview cemetery , Tuesday evening.
The Tribune would extend the sym
pathy of this community to the bereav

Buna way Dr. Z. L. Kay was quite
severely injured in a runaway , yester
day afternoon. The doctor was driving
his fine blooded colt , which became un
manageable , overturning the buggy and
throwing him out violently , injuring his
head , shoulder and hip. At the time
of going to press the doctor is resting
comfortably , and hopes to be around
again in a few days , to give that 2:30 :
Tramp a little exercise.
It is a source of great satisfaction , in
moving around the city , to mark with
what pride and painstaking care and
devotion our citizens are applying their
means and labor toward beautifying
their properties and ornamenting their
homes. The signs of the times in this
regard augur favorably for the futare
prettiest city in Nebraska. There is a
come-to-stay air about things that im
presses the beholder with a sense of gen
uineness , of substantiality , noticeable
in but few western communities.
A pain/ul and serious accident befell
Willie Scott , eldest son of Ed. J. Scott ,
an employe of The Tribune , on Mon
day evening , in this wise : It appears
that he and a playmate Willie Sharp
were practicing the javelin act , that
is , hurling long , sharp-pointed poles at
one another , in a playful mood to be
sure , and that while becoming proficient
in the spear throwing art , little Scott
received a thrust in the eye , which may
yet result disastrously to that organ.
The pole penetrated through the eye lid ,
but the injury to the eye ball cannot be
determined at this writing , perforce of
the swollen condition of the member.
The experience of this unfortunate ( and
we hope not worse than unfortunate , )
occurrence should not be losscd. Playful ;
weapons and games should be used in (
The meeting of the Y. P. A. , last
