The city authorities have agreed to take 8 1

The many lovers of birds are probably j
deased to note that the favorite trimmings .
his season for hats and bonnets are artificial j
lowers. Bird life is dear to all true hearts , j
tnd their wanton destruction to trim hats is
l sin and a crime. Those exquisite butterr
lies of birds life , the humming birds , are
nuch in demand for ornamental purposes ,
md they must be had. The idea of using i
he body of a dead bird as a personal adorn- 1
nent does not appear to be a civilized one. i
; t is fashionable and that is all. i
The so-called "bad lands" of Nebraska '
lave rapidly disappeared from the maps of
he country. It is coming to be understood j
hat the old-time estimates of the capabili- ,
ies of Nebraska soil , or indeed , for that ;
natter , of the west in general , no longer hold *
; ood. There is , of course , in Nebraska as in
ither states , land that is not good for ogri-
ultural purposes , but the ratio of uutillable
o tillable soil here is very small , and less
ban in any other region that we know of. i
Nebraska is , in fact , an earthly paradise for t
While all flowers are beautiful in their own .
weet way , still the modest apple blossoms .
iow to be seen in full bloom on nearly every .
awn in this city , have a charm and sweet-
less that entitle them to a high place. Their "
> ink delicacy as they are unfolding their l
learts of gold is exquisite and a bunch of
hem nestling in the hair of an autocrat child
s typical of u pure and sweet innocence.
) ne could rhapsodize long and lovingly over t
hem , but when thf heart feels most the lips t
nove not. lie who has no love for flowers , s
he stars of the earth , has lost much. And i
iven the artificial flowers are pleasing as a i
nemory. . '
"Signs of the early cucumber and raddish

Clean Up Your Alleys.
"You'may pave and garnish the beautiful
street and put on metropolitan style ; and the
face of the city you may make complete and
your lawns and gardens with beauty smile ,
but in your alleys there Is fever and death ,
more fatal and dread than tho Simoon's
Behind your hotels , so large and complete ,
the germ of death in the gutter lies ; behind
your lawns , so luxuriant and neat , the incense
of death and destruction arise. Beware of
the alley , there is death in its trench , and cer
tain destruction in its nauseous stench.
The fever season is coming apace , and
death will desolate tho city , contagion and
woe will sweep the place without remorse ,
regret or pity , unless your fever fields are
gleaned , unless your ungodly alleys are
Grim Death Is brooding over the town , his
molars chatter , his eyeballs glare ; at any
iromenthe may swoop down , to reap his
harvest that's in the air. For God sake , man ,
arouse and rally to cleanse your fever-laden
alley. "
A Delightful Gathering.
Register and Mrs. S. P. Hart entertained
a large company of friends , last Friday even
ing , at their home on Upper Marshall street ,
In a cleverly charming manner , indeed. Pro
gressive euchre was the never-failing source
from which the major share of the evening's
pleasure was drawn so eagerly. The guests
were :
Mr. and Miis. F. L. Brown. A. Campbell.
Frank Harris , J. U. Birdsell , George Hocknoll ,
F. M. Kimmell , W. J. Hills , M. Y. Starbuck , C.
H. Meeker , John F. Majors , C. W. Knights , G.
A. Noren , R. It. Woods , T. J. Rees , Z. L. Kuy ,
Frank Walsh. F. O. Newman , J. Byron Jen
nings , P. W. Newman , S. L. Green , C. M. No
ble , J. E. Kelley , Samuel Strasscr , F. H. Fow
ler , E. A. Leach , II. II. Troth , Mrs. Reed of
Yuma , Colo.
The first prizes were won by Mrs. J. E.
Kelley and Mr. J. Byron Jenuings. The
boobies by Mrs. H. II. Troth and Mr. C. H.
Mary had a little lamb , its fleece was white
as snow ; it strayed away one summer day ,
where lambs should never go. Then Mary
sat her down and tears streamed from her
pretty eyes ; she never found her Iamb be
cause she did not adverti'se. And Mary had
a brother John , who 1 kept- 'village store , lie ;
sat down and smoked his pipe and watched '
the open door. And'as the people passing
along but did not stop to buy , John still sat ;
down and smoked his pipe and blinked his
sleepy eye. And so the sheriff closed him '
out , but still he lingered near ; and Mary '
same to drop with him a sympathizing tear.
"IIow is it sister that these other merchants
liere , sell all their goods and pay their bills
and thrive from year to year ? " Remember
ing now her own bad luck , the little maid re- j
plied : 'Those other fellows get there , John , ]
iecause they advertise. " ,
The School Law. i
We should like to know what was the <
natter with the legislature when they passed '
: hat school law with the emergency clause. '
3ut of one-hundred and thirty-three men
liere was not one who saw in what a state
) f affairs they were placing the schools of
lie state. Here we are with ahillegal meet- <
ng on one handwhich will prevent i
he county board from acting on the levy , i
md on the other a law requiring the annual (
school meeting to be held after it is too late (
: or the levy to be acted upon. The statute t
provides that a levy cannot be made at any t
) ther than an annual meeting. It begins to
ook as if the schools would have to run next
, Tear without money or be shut up. The law
s a gooil one , if provisions had been made (
: or levies this year. ,
The action of the city council in instruct-
ng the police to enforce the ordinance pro-
libiting certain games is a proper and com-
nendable one. Card playing and dice throw-
ng have been carried on to an extent not at
dl creditable to our city. Such devices are 1
mbusiness like , as well as unlawful , and
> ander to a popular weakness which should (
) e firmly discouraged by the authorities.
Chey have become a prouounced nuisance
md the people will rise up and call our city
lathers blessed for their abatement. *
A Friend to the Editor. *
The person who furnishes items to a news-
japer is always a valuable friend to the edi-
or. Many are diffident about handing per- *
ional notes to a newspaper regarding'them- (
ielves lest the editor should think them anx-
ous to see their name in print. He will (
hink nothing of the kind , but on the conj j
rary will be glad to get such notes. Many \
leeiLingly unimportant items when printed
ire news to a large num ber of readers.
Business Change.
The partnership heretofore existing bef
ween W. C. LaTourette and his father , ]
Fames LaTourette of St. Louis , has been disj j
solved , and the former will coutiuuethe busi-
less , assuming indebtedness and collecting
ill accounts. The Tihbuxe wishes the old t
'Pioneer" continued prosperity. 1
Not An Inopportune Time. l
It occurs to the writer that if McCook con-
emplates doing anything for herself , this
season , it would not be an inopportune time j
o build a city hall as has been proposed and 1
jonsidered at various times during the past
lew years. McCook needs to acquire the j
labit of self-help almost as badly as she - \
leeds the shops. 1
Their Suburban Home.
Register and Mrs. S. P. Hart moved out to 1
heir pleasaut suburban home , east of the <
: ity , Wednesday , and Mr. C. E. Shaw and 1
lamlly at once assumed possession of the 1
iouso vacated by them , J

Subscribers Pay Up.
It is not the habit of the publisher to do
persistent dunning ; but there is a tide in the j
affairs of men which taken at the Hood leads
on to glory ; so there is a time in the life of
the publisher when a little cash seems lo beD
necessary , iu addition to glory. An urgent
invitation is extended our delinquent sub
scribers to call at once and settle up. In c
other words we must have some money. v

stead of stopping it only slowed up , and on B
seeing this he jumped off alighting on tho H
stones at the water tank. Being advanced iii U
years and heavily loaded with two valises and |
an overcoat , the force of the fall was too much M
for his right leg and be fell. As soon as us- | |
sistancc could arrive he was put on a car door M
and taken to the Cambridge House and Drs. | H
Walsworth & Aiken called , when upon exam- M
ination it was found he had received a sublux- M
ation of the knee joint. The company's sur- M
geon from McCook was also summoned to help M
relieve the sufferer. While it is a very serious M
and painful injury , it is thonght the limb will M
not have to be amputated. Mr. B. is a mem- M
ber of the I. O. O. F. lodge and tho brethren M
here saw that his wants were attended to. Ho jH
was put iu a sleeper on the evening train and |
