the fourth place among Nebraska's
thriving cities. Keep up your nerve.

good , square meal.
THE TRIBUNE has a private word
from thtt delegates to the Sidney irri
gation convention to the effect that the
meeting was a pronounced success and
full of interest , showing the widespread
attention the subject of irrigation is
commanding in Western Nebraska.
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of the McCook Co-operative
Building and Savings Association was
held on Monday evening , for the pur
pose of electing four members of the
board of directors. Messrs. W.S. Perry ,
F. H. Fowler , E. C. Ballew and U. J.
Warren are the new members , Mr. Perry
for the short term.
The storm of Saturday night and
Sunday was by far the severest of the
winter , and in other parts of the state
arose to the dignity and severity of a
genuine blizzard. Trains xvere block
aded both east and west of us , and we
were practically cut off from the outside
world during Sunday. We learn of no
serious results , however.
When the entire southwestern part of
Nebraska has become a veritable garden ,
as it will be , as a portion of Colorado is
to-day , and when McCook takes a posi
tion as the head centre of the irriga
tion system of southwestern Nebraska ,
she will take pride in the fact that to
ler citizens belongs the credit of put
ting the great movement in motion.
"I have the honor , " remarked Wil-
iam Weygint , the other day , to the
writer , "of having turned the first fur
row ever plowed in Red Willow county.
Three others came into this county
with me , and of the quartet , myself ,
Lewis Kerns , E. S. Hill and George
Hunter , all are living in the county
now except George Hunter , who went
to California a few years ago. Our
nearest neighbors were twenty miles
distant in Furnas county. "
Among those who will do quite ex
tensive irrigating , this coming season ,
"on their own hook , " is John F. Helm
of Red Willow , whose valuable farm at
the mouth of the creek is well known
for fertility all over the county. We
understand that he proposes putting
down a number of wells and pumping
the inexhaustible and acsessible waters
by steam power. By this means he will
undertake to irrigate a large acreage.
Being a thorough andintelhgent farmer
THE TRIBUNE looks for great results.
If Nebraska is to have another in
dustrial school , and we understand that
a bill has been introduced to that ef
fect , THE TBIBUNE would urge upon
the legislature the claims of southwest
ern Nebraska for recognition in the
matter of public institutions , and the
claims of the city of McCook as the
representative city of this portion of
the state. With no public buildings
in the southwestern part of Nebraska
west of Hastings it seems that , should
another institution be decided upon ,
the Republican Valley has the best
claims for its location within her limits ;
and that McCook offers unequalled at
tractions and advantageous as a site.

Dedicatory Services at St. Patrick's
Church , Sunday , Feb. 8th.
On last Sunday the completion oi
St. Patrick's -church , of McCook , was
celebrated with solemn ceremony. The
anticipations of the Catholics of this
city were fully realized in their long
felt need of a suitable place of worship ,
appropriate for its divine ceremonies.
At the High Mass a large congrega
tion was present , ' notwithstanding the
severity of the storm. The pastor , Kev.
J. W. Hickey , officiated , delivering a
most appropriate sermon ; taking for his
text the words of the twenty-fifth
Psalm , "I LOVE THE BEAUTY OP THY
HOUSE 0 LORD , AND IN THY CHURCH
I WILL BLESS THY NAME FOREVER. "
A description of Moses' Tabernacle and
the beautiful Temple of Solomon were
fully displayed by the preacher , showing
afterwards the first Temple and Sanc
tuary , namely : the Coenaculum , where
Chriot instituted the Eucharistio Sacra
ment , a most fitting abode for its divine

During the Offertory , Mr. Termohlcn
gave a most charming rendition of
"Palm Branches" by Faure , Mrs. J. C.
Birdsell presiding at the organ. At
the end of the Divine Sacrifice , Bene
diction of the Most Blessed Sacrament
was given , the choir and congregation
joining in the singing of the "Te Deurn. "
The improvements ot the church con
sist in the walls receiving a coat of hard
finish in white by Mr. J. H. Yarger ,
with a stencil bordering executed by Mr.
George Elbert. The stations of the
cross ornament the walls on both sides
of the church , representing Christ in his
Passion from his appearance before
Pilate to his death and burial. The
altar is a magnificent piece of Gothic
architecture built by Mr. Jas. McAdams ,
assisted by Mr. Henry Meyers. Too
much praise cannot be bestowed on the
latter gentlemen for the beautiful and
artistic workmanship displayed in its
construction. The painting of the altar
by Messrs. Elbert and Hines is a mag
nificent blending of white and gold
which give it a rich and refined ap
pearance , as also reflecting much credit.
Two Adoring Angels give a most in
spiring effect , which are in position on
each side of the altar. They were pur
chased in St. Louis from the firm of B.
fferder & Co. , together with many arti
cles requisite for divine services.
On the whole the Catholics of Mc-
Dook may well feel proud of their place
of worship , which is a fitting and be
coming temple for the enlightment and
sanctification of its members.
Social Life in McCook.
No social life is of much consequence
save that which is simple and genuine.
Where people of ideas meet there is no
need for spectacular entertainment and
no object in affecting superfluous luxu
ry. Entertaining should always fall
within the easy lines of attainment.
True hospitality does not lie in offering
to a guest what one cannot afford.
Hospitality lies in welcoming a friend
to what one has , not in mortgaging the
7uture to procure the impossible. There
is no true hospitality , either , in the oc
casional ceremonial entertainment , as
there is in having , at a touch , an added
plate on the table or an added chair for
any social entertainment for a friend ,
and a cordial welcome to share one's
salt and social pleasures informally
To give what one has , and not strive ,
after impressive effects with what one
las not , is the true secret of a hospita
ble home. And in McCook there is
much of this true and wholly unpreten
tious hospitality. "Even in a palace
ife can be well lived , " said Marcus
Aurelius , and in the most luxurious and
icautiful homes sincerity and simplicity
those two Ijighest graces of life are
very largely EN EVIDENCE.
We have moved our stock of jewelry ,
watches , clocks , etc. , into new quarters
in the Smith brick , ( formerly the First
National bank building , ) where we have
increased room and facilities for dis
playing our line , and-where we will be
pleased to welcome customers old and
new. FRANK CARRUTH & SON.

THE SECOND ANNUAL
Performance by The Merry Min
strels Was a Conspicuous
Well , the Merry Minstrels have sung
their gentle lays and cracked their jokes
galore , and the giddy old world has re
gained her wonted equilibrium and is
peacefully pursuing her orbit way.
Their second annual appearance was
greeted by a full house and with great
enthusiasm , the various parts being
received with enthusiastic applause ; and
quite a few of the selections being en-
chored to the echo.
Mr. Reid appeared in a number of
solo selections and acquitted himself
very creditably and satisfactorily.
Mr. Jackson is one of the new mem
bers and his solo work proved very con
clusively that he is entitled to his spurs.
He is the possessor of a sweet , well
modulated voice , which he handles very
This was Mr. Mitchell's debut with
the Minstrels. He elicited great ap
plause , especially in the delivery of his
oration , "What Is It. "
Mr. Elliott was a prime favorite. His
rich , full basso has lost none of its
power , and his renditions were full of
his old time skill.
Mr. Farrcll's initial appearance was
a decided hit. He sang well , and his
clog dancing made the welkin ring.
Mr. Termohlen , another new member ,
quite captivated his audience with his
sweet voice and the feeling he put into
his ballads. '
Mr. Berry touched a popular chord
in his various performances , and quite
won the generous applause showered
The violin duet by Prof. Rcizenstein
and his little daughter Eva was one of
the pretty things of the evening. Miss
Eva handles the bow gracefully and is
destined to become a captivating artist.
Mr. Jordan officiated as interlocutor
with all his accustomed dignity.
The music by the orchestra was up
to their high standard and was a pleas
ing feature of the entertainment.
All in all the Merry Minstrels made
a good impression , and their future ef
forts are assured of a generous patron
age and appreciation.
Most people never make an invest
ment only under the stimulus of aboom.
Particularly is this true of the west ,
jut the prudent person makes his in
vestments at the time whop the market
las reached its greatest depression.
The time to make a good investment
in McCook property was never better
than now , and we speak advisedly when

to buy when you see booming crops ,

that one extreme is always followed

The Last of Earth.
On Monday afternoon , from the resi
dence of Mr. F. L. Brown , the remains
of Mrs. J. D. Robb , whose sudden and
sad decease was briefly noted in our
ast issue , were consigned with loving
lands to their last resting place in
The services were conducted by Rev.
Mather of the Methodist church , and
were very largely attended , attesting
the high esteem in which the departed
was held by a large circle of warm
Friends , all of whom join in expressions
of profoundest sympathy and condol
ence for the stricken husband and sorrowing
rowing relatives and friends.
The hand of affliction rests heavily
upon Philip Katzenmyer , ( who lives a
Tew miles south of the city on the
divide , ) in the death of his son Matthias
Paul , Tuesday , from mountain fever.
Tie funeral took place , yesterday , from
the Catholic church , the remains being
juried in the church cemetery.
