Kapke , The Tailor , guarantees you the lowest prices and the most stylish and elegant clothing. C. M. Smith & Son have the only band-made and imported paper ever brought to McCook. The fly paper prepared and sold by the City Drug Store is the most effective article in the market. 75 cents buys more meat at Brewer's market than $1.00 will purchase any where else in McCook. Look at the Organs Sutton , the Jeweler , is selling at $60.00 and $75.00 on $5.00 per month payments. HANGING LAMPS Noble is head quarters for hanging lamps.

The B. & M. meat market continues to meet -competition , and "to go them one better" in price and quality of meat. Everyone can afford to make their home attractive at the prices C. M. Smith & Son get for Wall Paper and Decorations. The choicest meats are sold at the B. & M. meat market at prices asked for inferior cuts elsewhere. Note this important fact.

POTTER & EASTERDAY. As a refreshing , thirst-satisfying summer drink , soda water has no su perior. The City Drug Store has an en viable reputation of producing the most popular results in all the latest drinks. Only pure fruit juices used. Black is never out of style , but it lias received a new lease of life this summer , the lovely black grenadine be ing among the most elegant and appre- . dated toilets , as are also the black nets and figured laces which never go out of style. style.Go Go and see LUDWICK'S mammoth stock of second hand goods. Furniture , cook stoves , heaters and gasoline stoves , bought and sold. Will also rent goods by the week or month. A pawn bro ker's business in connection. Second door west of the McEntee Hotel. The raw old expression "Don't count jour chickens until they are hatched" vis now rendered by the Boston girl as follows : "There is an aphorism of res pectable antiquity which seriously ad vises the producers of poultry to post- pens the census of juvenile fowls till the period of incubation is terminated. " Ihe Danbury News has succumbed , but in its stead the Enterprise bobs up at Bartley with D. R. Carpenter and the same typographical eccentricities of the News clinging to it. Just why the people of Bartley should be thus afflicted deponent sayeth not One paper is enough for any town in this western country , and if Carpenter finds a "long felt want" at Bartley a most powerful microscope will have to be employed. Beaver City Tribune. Noble , The Grocer. WALL PAPER at McMillen'a. . Staple and Fancy Groceries at Noble's. SHEUBET , the healthful drink , at MC MILLEN' s.

IN QUEENSWARE Noble carries the largest assortment and the richest designs of the season. His prices are reasonable. The purchasing power of 75 cents at Brewer's meat market is greater than that of 100 cents at other city markets. Just test it. Do not allow yourself to be misled. The B. & M. meat market sells the choicest meats of all kinds , and at the very lowest living prices. At the City Drug Store , a spesialty is made of compounding physicians' pre scriptions. Only the purest drugs ob tainable in the market are used. We have a few patterns of Wall Paper from last year , which we will sell regardless of cost. C. M. SMITH & SON.

The MsCook , Neb. , hose company has challenged the Oberlin fire boys for a contest of skill , said contest to take place at Oberlin. The home talenthas signified a willingness to gratify their desires , and a royal battle may confident ly be looked for. "When Greek meets Greek , then comes the tug of war. " Herald. It is not generally known that a match may be lighted readily when scratched on a pane of glass. To those who have been accustomed to seeing people search for a rough surface on which to scratch a match , it may appear startling. Not only ordinary matches , but even the safety matches , usually unlightable ex cept on the box in which they come , can be lighted on glass. Cholera morbus can be easily checked in nine cases out of ten by the use of the following , which any druggist can fill : Tincture capsicum , laudanum , tincture of rhubarb , spirits of camphor and essence of peppermint , of each two drams , mix and take from fifteen to twenty drops every half hour until re lieved. This has been known to cure * some of the worst cases in a short time. The physicians say that the grippe is still prowling around the country putting in the time during the summer in occa sionally carrying off a patient that did not entirely recover from the attack made last season. It is feared that cold weather will see a great increase in the number of cases of the malady and the complications that follow in its train. Unusual care should be taken during the fall to build up the general health in anticipation of a trying winter. How easily it rains , now ! There will be cheaper corn. Well , how is it about that subscrip tion you are owing us ? Preaching services in the Congrega tional church next Sunday evening. An original pension was granted Alvin A. Caulkins of Indianola , on the 25th instant. ANNOUNCEMENT. D. L. McBnde will preach in the Congregational church on next Sunday evening. The Omaha World-Herald estimates that lied Willow county will have a one-sixth crop this year. The late splendid rains have caused nature to rehabilitate herself in gar ments of pleasing , restful green. General store and harness shop want ed. Splendid opening. Address I. D. EVANS , Stookham , Neb. A false alarm brought out the fire department in hot haste , Monday morn ing , through mud and rain. A quantity of corn is being stored in the cellar of the Green building by C. T. Brewer , this week , his cribs being full. The slate having arrived , rooms 7 and 8 at the Eastward building will not pre sent the unfinished appearance which characterized them last year. A bright bit of sunshine fell athwart the threshold of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Campbells home , yesterday morning. The young Miss is of regulation weight and lung power , and everything is lovely. School books , slates , tablets , inks , pens , pencils , school bags , copy books , drawing books , in fact a full line of school supplies may be had at lowest prices at THE TRIBUNE'S stationery department. Last week , Jake Burnett , of the boarding train service , purchased the F. L. Brown residence , corner of Main and Dakota at a decided bargain. It is one of the choicest residence proper ties in the city. Arapaboe sustained the loss of six business houses , early Monday morning. The absence of wind made it practicable to remove a large portion of the con tents of the structures consumed , the loss consequently was small , not exceed ing $10,000. It will now be proper for Mr. Car penter of the Bartley Long-Felt-Want to apply to Mr. Bishop of the Goose- town Banner for membership in the flourishing Ananias club at Indianola , over which the latter presides with such perspicuous ability. Tuesday , F. S. Wilcox started for a point near Fremont with a small ship ment of cattle and hogs. Eight or ten car-loads will follow , next week. Mr. Wilcox has made arrangements , and with a gentleman named Brown will feed a large number of cattle and hogs at that place. They are trying again to scare high heels down. Physicians have said that head aches are less frequent since low heels came into fashion. But of what avail is such preaching ? Many women are so "addicted to fashion" that they would rather any time have the head ache than to be out of style. The Methodist church of McCook , through the proper official source , has tendered an invitation to Rev. Mastin of Minden , presiding elder of this dis trict. Rev. Mastin is one of the ablest divines in the district and THE TRIBUNE hopes that his services may be secured by the Methodist brethren of our city. The Minden people are very desirous of retaining him ; but the Elder is an enthusiastic admirer of McCook , and there is a fair prospect of his being sent here. Sporting circles were in a consuming fever of excitement , last Saturday , over the extraordinary turf events of that day. There were two races. Major's bay filly being matched against Noble's black filly , and Lewis' dark bay gelding against Steinmetz' sorrel gelding. As but two could win , Noble and Steinmetz had to be content with the crumbs of defeat while Majors and Lewis pounced upon the more succulent spoils of vic tory with avidity. It is said on authority of one whose head is still ringing that in the evening the welkin rang to the spirituous inspiration of potent pota tions , insomuch that a local drought was narrowly averted. And the boys are still laughing over the affair. The Box Elder reunion came to a most auspicious close , last Saturday. The attendance , considering everything , was large , and the interest unflagging. The reunions of the Veterans' Associa tion of Box Elder , in fine , have the quality of improving each succeeding year. The Doyle grove where the vet erans and their friends annually assem ble is one of the most charming spots on the Willow and splendidly adapted for the purpose. Friday was the day ofchiefest interest , and the reunion was most numerously attended on that date. The' McCook band and a large delegation of our citizens were present and added quite largely to the general interest. Hon. T. J. Majors made the principal address , J. C. Allen , J. B. Cessna and. others making a few re marks. With speeches , music , recita tions , reminiscences- . , the old com rades and their guests enjoyed a large and juicy season of recreation and pleasure. Nebraska Land Decisions. At the interior department to-day ( Saturday ) Assistant Secretary Chand ler considered the appeal of Christian M. Kinsinger from the decision of the land commissioner rejecting his applica tion to make timber a culture entry for the southwest quarter of the northeast quarter of the southeast quarter of the northeast quarter of the southwest quarter of section 1 , township 5 north , range 33 west , McCook , Neb. It appears that Kinsinger brought contest against the entry of one Tacke covering said tract and procured the cancellation of the same. Notice of cancellation was given to Kinsinger's attorney inDcoem- ber , 1887 , and in January , 1888 , Charles P. Peck made a timber culture entry for the land. Two months afterward Kinsinger applied to enter the tract , but his application was rejected on ac count of Peck's entry. Kinsinger then claimed to be entitled to the preference of right of entry. Upon hearing it was found that Kinsinger's attorney in the Tacke case made a charge of $10 for services , which he refused to pay. Then , to get even , when the attorney received notice of the cancellation of Tacke's entry he refused to send notice to Kinsinger. Assistant Secretary Chandler says that whatever may be the merits of that controversy it is clear that notice was properly sent to the at torney of record and service upon an attorney is service upon a client. Under the law Kinsinger was obliged to make entry within thirty days from such ser vice in order to secure his preference right. The officers of the government , having done their duty , are in no man ner responsible for Kinsinger's default and the interests ofthepresententrymen can not be prejudiced by any misunder standing that may exist between Kin- singer and his attorney. The decision of Commissioner Groff is therefore affirmed. Monday of this week the interior de partment affirmed the decision of the commissioner of the general land office in dismissing the contest of Clarence H. Usboin against the timber culture entry of Francis M. Crow and refusing Osborn's preference to the right of en try for northeast quarter of section 13 , north of range 29 west , McCook land district. Located and Recovered One. July 4th , the B. & M. loaned a few wheel-barrows to the celebration committee for use in the barrow races on that occasion. When the committee came to return them it was discovered that two wheel-barrows were missing , and no clue to the thief was then dis covered. The first of this week , how ever , Marshal Bennett , armed with a search warrant , invaded the recently deserted premises of Bill Enyeart in South McCook , without bagging any game. Extending the search to the premises of Bill's sister , Rose Penny on the valley , one of the missing barrows was brought to light. As Enyeart had removed to his father-in-law's - - , near Cambridge , no action was commenced by the company. Foreclosure Proceedings. A passing interest in The Great Western Watch Factory of Indianola is revived by the commencement , last week , of foreclosure proceedings against that greatest fake that ever gulled an unsophisticated people. The proceed ings were instituted by the Lincoln Land Co. The amount is the small and insignificant sum of $23,000 , ( a mere bagatelle to the Great Western Watch Factory of Indianola , Neb. , ) due the land company for real estate purchased by the watch factory corporation , in the halcyon and vociferous days of its ver dant youtbfulness , before the evil days came and it disappeared in the tureen without so much as causing a ripple on the placid surface of the consomme. He is How in Hock. A young individual named Samuel Richards is now boarding with Sheriff McCool at Indianola , Marshal Bennett having delivered him over to the keep ing of the genial sheriff on Saturday evening last. Richard's crime was en deavoring to lay up treasures on earth rather expeditiously and irregularly , by misrepresentation , having secured about $60 from the Bank of McCook in this way , last week. Squire Colvin bound him over to the next term of district court in the sum of $500 , and in default he was jailed. The bank recovered a portion of the money. Tapped the Till. Between the hours of ten and eleven o'clock , Monday night , the till of C. M. Smith & Son's drug store was touched to the amount of about $75 in cool cash. The party had evidently hidden in the basement of the store before closing time ; and in the interim between closing the store and retiring for the night , ( the junior member's bedroom is in the rear part of the building ) while Mr. Smith was absent , the robbery was perpetrated. Lacked the Nerve. The county commissioners , or rather Messrs. Crabtree and Bennett , met at Indianola , Saturday last , and adjourned , lacking the nerve to order the drawing of a warrant to pay Snavely and Smith and Strout for their heroic , manly efforts in attempting to prove three- fourths of the voters of Red Willow county to be perjurers and liars.

Some of the people living along tiie line of a railroad have quite an idea in regard to making thoroughbred stock by crossing scrub stock with a locomotive. A man is now lying in jail at Indianola charged with practicing the game and thereby obstructing the track , endangering the lives of passen gers and safety of trains. His chance to go to the "pen" is good. A serious wreck occurred at Tower , on the Lyons branch , on Friday , August 22d. The engineer lost control of his engine when corning down the Tower hill.
