Though the reputation of men of :
genuine character may be of slow
growth , their true qualities cannot be
wholly concealed. They may be mis-
represented by some , and misunderstood
by others ; misfortune and adversity may ,
for a time , overtake them ; but with pa
tience and endurance , they will event
ually inspire the respect and command
the confidence which they really deserve. ,
In the retirement of 3Iessrs. Ballard
& Eaton from the Akron Star the press
of Weld county loses two of its ablest
newspapermen. The boysthough dem- <
ocrats , had the misfortune to fall under i
the bane of Register 3Iott' disapproba- i
tion and displeasure and their prosper- '
ous business was destroyed absolutely ;
and beyond repair and they were vir- ]
tually compelled to retire from business. '
And the interests of oppressionboycott ,

We do not care what anyone's views -
about temperance or total abstinence '
may be ; every man who values either !
law or order , or rational conviviality
must hate whisky , or must desire , if
he cannot banish it from the land al- ,
together , to see it made hard to procure. '
There is no greater delusion than to
suppose that a glass of whisky can be j
considered the "social " that
gla s , or ]
real conviviality that is , the free in- <
terchange of ideas , or jokes , or songs ,
or quips , or cranks of any description ,
is promoted thereby. It rapidly pro
duces either stupor or extreme irrita- :
bility , and is , indeed , especially adapted ;
to the needs of the solitary drinker. It
never tastes so well as in the private
jug of the lonely toper. It is a liquor
which only is drunk in ninety-nine eases
out of a hundred by men who wish from
the bottom of their hearts they could
give it up , and find that it fills their
blood not only with the "tawny dusks
of perfect days , " but awful forebodings
of domestic and professional ruin.

, The gentlemanly weather clerk seems to
be attending strictly to his own knitting

In view ofthe fact that the company is
ordering the removal of coal sheds on the side
track west of the depot , it is thought that
work will be commenced on a new freight

supposition may prove true. The proposed
building will make a number of changes in
the arrangement of offices in the present de

Chairman Meiklejoim of the republican
state central committee lias sent to the chair- ,
men ' of various republican county commit- -
tees ' a circular calling particular attention to .
the \ resolution passed by the state convention
that the question of submission be voted on
at the republican primaries , and urging a j
careful observance of the resolution. By
this vote the republicans of the state will
have the opportunity to express tbeir opin- j
ion on this question and the opportunity
should be improved.
Among the new announcements in this is
sue of The Tribune will be found that of i
Capt. , J. A. Wilcox of this city , as a candidate i
for nomination to the office of representative , i
subject , to be sure , to will of republican
county convention. The Captain needs no 1
introduction to the voters of Red Willow 1
county , wherein lie is well and favorably :
known for his sterling integrity. If the rei i
publicans of this county shall see proper to 1
place him in nomination for the office , its dui i
ties will be discharged honestly and to the '
best ot his ability. i
The announcement of George fl. Grubb ,
Esq. , of Indianola , as a candidate for nomina
tion to the important office of representative ,
subject to decision of republican county con-
vention , appears in this issue , in the proper
place. Mr. Grubb is a rising young lawyer ,
of recognized ability and promise. As a .
speaker and debater he has few equals in this (
section of state. Shall the republicans of .
Red Willow county , in convention assembled , J
and in their best judgment , place Mr. Grubb .
In nomination , the office will be filled with ,
dignity and ability.
The many lriends of Col. Thos. E. Mc-
Cracken of this city are energetically work-
ins to advance his prospects of securing the i
republican nomination for the office of repre
sentative. The Colonel is a republican of
purest raj' without guile and a citizen of
unquestioned integrity and ability. He is by
observation , experience and nature well
qualified and equipped for the office , which
iie will fill with marked ability , if the repub
licans of this county , in their wisdom , see fit
to place him in nomination for tiiat import
ant trust. Mr. McCracken is worthy of every
confidence and will make a strong race for
Willow Grove's delegation at to-morrow's
That "Dynamite Bomb. "
"iv r.ooici i.iki : pownnit ; it : i.iki :
i'owdcu ; it tastes i.ikc powder ;
J. hms ! "
Last Sunday the shining hours were im
proved in demonstrating the true "inward-
ncs" of the Stratton "dynamite bomb. " The
participants were : Train Master Harman ,
Master Mechanic Archibald , Roadmaster
Rodgern , Roadmaster Baukson and Chief Ir
win of the carpenter force. The deadly en
gine was carefully removed to the river bot
tom , south of town. All being in readiness ,
a match was set to the fuse and the experi
menters jointly and severally strained every
nerve to lend enchantment to the scene. And
such humping , wiggling , going-as-you-pleasc
perhaps the Republican valley has never seen
since the last herd of buifalos stampeded
across its peaceful bosom. Having placed a
safe distance between them and the bomb ,
all breathless and a tremble witli excitement
and expectancy , they awaited the mighty ex
plosion witli bated breath. But they waited
in vain. Thinking the fuse at fault , the same
was readjusted and fired again , which was as
before followed by an excitiugand laughable
stampede for a more salubrious locality.
Again the silence of tiie grave prevailed , un
broken save by the gentle rippling of theliin-
pid waters of the placid Republican. Hitch
ing up their pantaloons another hole , and
screwing their courage up a notch or two , the
valiant crcwd proceeded to investigate the
gas pipe more closely now , the probability of
a large , healthy cod dawning upon them.
The dangerous instrument was found to coni
tain an excellent , but entirely harmless arti
cle extensively used in fertilizing. After
administering an awful oath of eternal si-
lence , the party somewhat crestfallen and de-
djecte returned to the city , and Andy Bank-
son lias not been in an approachable condi
tion of mind ever since.
The Building and Loan Association.
The regular monthly meeting of the Mc-
Cook Co-operative Building and Loan Asso-
ciation was held , last Friday evening , the
routine business of the association being disi

stated : E. A. Leach , $ S0O at 2o > per cent.

port shows the association to be in a most
vigorous , prosperous condition. The organi

adding materially to the city's building boom
and affording a safe and lucrative investment.

A Delicate Operation. (
On Monday afternoon , Drs. Kay and Davis
performed a delicate operation upon a six1
months girl baby of Eli C. Popejoy , who re- {
sides a short distance northwest of the city. '
It appears that the infant is suffering with a
tumor located the and
over eye extending c
back into the cavity of eye and perhaps reach- ]
ing into the brain ; and it was deemed neces
sary , to ligature the common carotid artery in '
order , to shut off nutrition from the tumor.
The < operation , which was performed for
what is technically styled aneurism of the or
bit , was handled skillfully and successfully , >
and ; is perhaps without a parallel in the his- *
in Nebraska. The J
tory ot surgery result will
be noted with considerable interest. '
Seriously Perhaps Fatally Injured.
The many friends , in this city , of Will H. j
Smith | , better known as "Bakly" Smith , a i
former B. & . M. engineer on the Cheyenne
division ( , will learn witli sincere regret and
profound sorrow of his serious and perhaps ,
fatal : injury , last Satuiday , in the U. P. yards [
at j Cheyenne , Wyo.while engaged in switch
ing. ] A letter to a friend in this city states
that ' his head was badly squeezed and mash
ed ' between the platforms of two coaches , and {
that ' the physician despairs of his life. Smith f
fired for a number of years on this division , l
where he is well known and a general favorl l
ite. ' t
Sorrow and Sadness There.
The home of Martin Armentrout of South f
McCook is shrouded in gloom and sorrow by t
the 1 sad death of the wife and mother , Mrs. i
Isabella J. Armentrout , which occurred about i
nme o'clock , Sunday night. Funeral services
were held , Monday afternoon , at the Luther
an church , Rev. J. W. Kimmel officiating ,
Longview cemetery being the final resting
place of the loved one. The deceased leaves
an infant of but five days old , and a child two i
years of age. The bereaved husband has the c
profound sympathy of every kind and tender (
heart in community. ji j
Base Ball as She is Played. i
The game of ball , last Saturday , between t
" " and the "Parks"
the "McCooks" clubs , on
the "Famous" grounds , resulted in tiie disas
trous defeat of the boys from the country ,
who managed to secure but three scores to }
their credit while our boys were rolling ud f
thirty tallies , with comparative ease. Our 2
friends fiom Prospect Park can readily demi
onstrate their expertness at pumpkin husking , f
but there is room for question when their skill
as players of the national game is involved.
They traveled in too fast company , last Sat
urday , sure.
Fatally Injured. <
- i
Monday afternoon , a man named William
Northrup was run over by a wild engine , on
the Coon creek bridge near Indianola , and
fatally injured , deatli coming to his relief at
about 9 o ' clock the same evening. He was
partially paralyzed , and in attempting to (
cross the bridge in advance of the locomotive , 1
fell and was run overabove as stated. He was ]
buried at Indianola , Tuesday , at county 's ex- ]
pense. His companion escaped. No blame <
attaches to the enginemen. No inquest.
The Fire Hydrants are Here. ' '
The four additional fire hydrants ordered :
some weeks since are on the ground and will (
be planted as decided upon by the city council ,
in a few days. They are of a superior pattern
to those already in use , larger and more ;
durable , and will add not a little to our Are :
protection. (
