A New Loan and Banking Company.
( .From The Owego N. Y. Times. ]
Mr. Charles E. Shaw , formerly of the firm
of Shaw & Dean , this village , who lias been
connected with the Western Loan and In
vestment Company of Hastings , Nebraska ,
for tho past year , has withdrawn from that
company and organized a new company.
The new company will be known as the Ne
braska Loan and Uanking Company , and
will be located at McCook , a very thriving
town in Nebraska. The new company lias
a paid up capital of 5100,000. Mr. Shaw is
President of the new company , and our pop-
uiar townsman , C. A. Thompson , who is
Cashier of the Owego National Hank , and
Treasurer of this county , is Vice-President.
O. G. Webster , Esq , of Eastliampton , Mass. ,
a former Owego boy , is the Eastern Mana
ger. The Treasurer and Cashier are west
ern gentlemen ot good standing and ability ,
both having had several years' experience in
the business. A number of our prominent
citizens have taken stock in this company as
well as many other gentlemen in the several
towns and cities in this vicinity. Mr. Shaw
is a first-class business man , as honest as the
day is long. We have known him all his
life and his careful business habits. We
congratulate Mr. Shaw upon organizing this
strong company , and-also the citizens of Mc-
Cook upon securing so excellent an organiza1
tion in their city. We bespeak for tho NebI

A Pig Party.
Another new fad for social gatherings has
been discovered or invented. It contains as
much hilarity as those gatherings for the
study ) of anatomy called the donkey party.
The ; new thing is called a pig party. Every
body at a party is required to draw , witii a
pencil on white paper , two pigs. The draw
ing must be made without taking the pencil
off the paper. The second drawing must be
made with the eyes blindfolded , after which
the paper must be signed. The fun comes
when a comparison of the drawings takes
place , and the prize in competition is given
to the draughtsman of the best pig. The
person who makes the worst drawing is call-
g the pig.
An Evening Party.
A card party was given to a company of
tlb city's young people , last Friday evening ,

Hopes He May Remain.
From the Bartley Inter-Ocean. ]
McCook , Neh. , Dec. 2S , 1888.
John Wiley agrees to leave town on the
morning train of January 2 , 1890 , and never
return if the county seat of Bed Willowcoun-
tju is not located at McCook on or before Jan
uary 1,1890. Joux Wiley.
Dated Dec. 4,18S8.
The Inter-Ocean sincerely hopes that John
Wiley will have the pleasure of remaining , B"r
as McCook is the most enterprisiiur city be-
tween Hastings and Denver.
Realized Handsomely. D
The ladies of the Methodist church realized
neat little sum from their dinner and lunch ,
Washington's Birthday , our citizens quite
generally taking advantage of the extensive
and toothsome "spread" made by the ladies II
oi that occasion.
A Dead Certainty.
From the Hastings Republican. ]
McCook advertises that she has captured
tho B. & . M. machine shops for a dead cer-
The sermon by Be v. Joel S. Kelsey , last
Sunday evening , oh "Kindness to Animals , "
was a splendid eifort. We would that every
animal owner in the city had heard it. Many
couid profit by the suggestions dropped. Be
kind to animals.
That the leading dailies of Nebraska are f ®
against prohibition , while the country week- "
lies , regardless of politics , are almost univer
sally favoring it , are significant facts.
