LASTUIGHT'S CAMP FIRE
Was a rouser , with a big R. A
large and enthusiastic croAvd gath
ered around the fire and listened to
the speeches , singing and music by
tho band. The addresses of the
evening wero made by Comrades
Burton of Hastings , Majors of
Nemaha , Bixlor of North Platte ,
Cole of Juniata , Gage of Franklin ;
General McCook also spoke a few
words. The speech of Comrade
Burton was a very eloquent , patri
otic effort , and was received with
every mark of enthusiastic appro
bation. The court martial was
highly * amusing , and the stories ,
anecdotes , and general small talk
absorbingly interesting. It was
in fact one of the features of the re

Last evening , during the camp

overcome by fatigue , ' fainted ,
causing- little excitement for
the time being.
One of the features of the reun
ion , of which all citizens can feel
proud , is the music by the band.
Few cities of any size , can boast as :
fine an organization.
The Stratton Lodge , X. of P. ,
ivas down last night , to engage in
the parade , which had been post
poned until this evening by reason
3f tho non-arrival of the governor.
Western Nebraska's sunny , Itala
ian skies have never smiled down
apon as brilliant a scene as that k
presented in McCook to-day. A \

gathered within the limits of a
Western Nebraska city.
Last evening , a boy about six
ears of age had his leg broken "

Last night's attendance at the
Opera House was largely increased '
jver that of the previous evening.

the usual artistic and satisfactory
manner. The Stuttz's have demon- ,

The associations peculiarly agreeable ,
memories revived , heart stirring.
The entertainmentprovidedhas been ex
tensive and interesting. With aham
battles , parades , competitive and exhi
bition drills , receptions , camp fires ,
speeches , music , social intercourse , the
old veterans and their families , from
home and abroad , have enjoyed a season
of pleasure , not often duplicated or ex
ceeded. The general and the rank and
file have met on a common level ,
swapped stories , drank out of the same
canteen , as it were , and have had a
royal good time together. The re-union
has been graced throughout by a brill
Hant galaxy of notablcsin , both military
and civic circles , who have had consul
erable to do with the outcome of the af
fair. All in all , the occasion has been
one which will long be remembered by
the multitudes present with the hap
piest of emotions. '
IS PROUD OF THE CITY.
General McCook expresses himself
as proud of the enterprising , handsome
little city that bears his name so grace
fully and proudly , and has signified his
intention of making the municipality a
present of an appropriate character.
The Tribune hopes in the near future
to be able to state just what that gift
shall be. Eest assured , however , that
it will bn worthy the generous donor ,
and a credit to the most promising little
city in the state of Nebraska.
The Hastings people , in boring for a
sas ; , have discovered the existence of
pure rock salt , in large quantities , at a
depth of about 800 feet. They have al
ready bored through forty feet of the
article , and a company has been organ
ized to develope the same.
The Y. AI. C. A. will meet in the
