has the moral reformer who is also a
moral coward. He is at all times anx

of political or personal condition.
Nebraska is a young men's state
McCook a young men's city and it is
befitting that McCook's next Mayor
should be a young man. George B.

business man , is his name. Awake to

The snowfall during the storm of
Tuesday and Wednesday was undoubt
edly the heaviest of the season , and
must have been over a foot in depth on
the level. Trains were delayed , and
business generally was about suspended
during its continuance. Aside from the
fact that stock must have suffered
severely , this unusual fall of snow will
be of immense , value to agricultural in
terests , especially to those who have
their spring wheat planted. We have
no reports , but inasmuch as stock are
poor and weak and feed scarce , it may
be expected that the Storm King has
gathered in many an animal.
THE TRIBUNE does not paint any
fancy pictures to induce people to in
vest in farms in this section , but it does
state what it knows to be true , that the
county of Red Willow and many of its
neighbors present as good opportunities
as anyinteliigentandindustrious farmer
need look for. The advantages are fine
climate , pure water , fertile soil , excel
lent schools , a superior population , and
a fair market is had in McCook. The
man who farms here with tbc skill and
industry that he has been compelled to
employ further east can show more sat
isfactory results in ten years time , he
can own a better and a larger farm that
will increase in value every year , and if
he has sons he will be enabled to give
them a start in life sucli as he could
never hope to do in the agricultural sec
tions of the east.

HOW WE LIVE !
It is u small , contemptible mid igno
ble characteristic of man that seeks ad
vancement at the expense of another's
prosperity. Yet this menu trait per
meates many communities. One sec
tion of country endeavoring to uphuilc
itself by mendacious misrepresentation
of another section. A state basely
seeking wealth by filching another's
The east belittles the west , the north
points the finger of scorn at southron
lands. Even here in our own fair Ne
braska the uncanny trait appears. And
the drouth-stricken western counties
have to bear the double burden of lo'st
crops and unfavorable , untruthful ad
vertising by eastern counties , who
should be content with their golden
harvest from our distresses *
So with rival cities and individuals :
frequently more intent upon tearing
down another than in upbuilding self.
The newspapers are full of it. How
this man never raised anything in Ne
braska , ( where tens of thousands pros
per ) , but grew rich without exertion in
Oregon. And so ad naseum. The fact
of the matter is this : All places have
their drawbacks. All their advantages.
Some people never succeed anywhere
or under any circumstances. Others
by dint of industry , economybrainsand
energy succeed anywhere and despite
environment. So this man leaves Fron
tier county and lies about her to the
Portland newspaper boomer. And the
other man departs from McCook and
forthwith forgets what manner of city
THE TRIBUNE believes that no one
ingratiates himself into the confidence
and esteem of a community by crying
down the state or city whence he emi
grated. Nor does he injure the place
lie left. He only emphasizes his own
failure , and perhaps unwittingly exhib
its a disposition to shade the truth.
Away with this unmanly tendency.
Carve out your fortune by fair , vigqr-
ous , honorable means , nations , states ,
communities , individuals , all.

WHY HE CAME.
The gentleman's name is Leonard
Willis. To the reporter who approach
ed him , he said :
"I have just arrived here from Ne-
jraska , having lived for a number of
years in Frontier county. I own a farm
of 160 acres there , but for three years
L have not raised enough to feed a shoat
! or a week. We kept thinking that
next season' would be better than the
ast , but finally I came to the conclu
sion that our country was like the with
ered bush and would never blossom , so
. pulled up stakes and came to Oregon.
LOOKING FOR A HOMESTEAD.
I want to find a homestead , but I
understand that I will have to pay an
agent over $100 to locate me on a de
sirable piece of land. 1 shall stay here
a few days and then strike into the
valley , going as far south , perhaps , as
the Rogue river country , or down about
} oos bay , where , I understand , un-
taken land is quite plentiful. I do not
care to go over to Washington , for I
> elieve Oregon is the country that will
uit all mankind. If I find a good
> lace and feel satisfied , 1 am confident
hat I can induce 200 fdmilies to follow
me from my old-home county.

HOLY WEEK SERVICES.
At St. Patrick's Church the services
during this week , Holy Week , are of
a. very interesting nature.
Holy Thursday the Catholic church
commemorates the institution by our
Savior of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass ,
and the Most Blessed Sacrament of the
Altar. This commemoration she has
celebrated from the first ages of christ-
anity. Ihe crucifix on this day is cov
ered with a white veil in memory of
the sacred institution of the Blessed
Sacrament of the Altar. The Priest
comes to the Altar robed in white vest
ments ; the "Gloria in Excelsis" ' is
solemnly sung accompanied by the ring
ing of bells , and all Christians are ex
horted to render praise and gratitude
to the Lord for having instituted the
Blessed Feast of Love. After the
Gloria the bells are silent until Holy
Saturday , to indicate the church's
mourning for the passion and death of
Jesus ; to urge us also to spend these
days in silent sorrow , meditating on the
sufferings of Christ. At the Mass the
Priest consecrates two Hosts , one of
which he consumes , and the other he
preserves in the chalice for the follow
ing day , because no consecration takes
place on Good Friday. After Mass the
consecrated Host is taken to the repos
itory , which is beautifully decorated ,
and remains their until the Mass of
the Presanctified on Good Friday. This
signifies Christ's going to Mount Olivet
where His Godhead was concealed till
On Good Friday , the greatest day
from beginning to its end , the designs
which God had from all eternity were
perfected , as Jesus Himself expressed
when He said"'all is consummated , ' ' for
on this day He died for mankind , being
nailed to a cross between two thieves.
Holy Saturday derives its name be
cause on this day Jesus , the Holy of
Holies , rested in the sepulchre and be
cause on this day the church blesses
everything that is used for divine
Easter Sunday commemorates the res
urrection of Christ from the dead , the
day on which Jesus , the true East
er Lamb , took away our sins by His
blood , freed us from the angel of etern
al death , and passed us over to the
freedom of the children of God.
The services at St. Patricks will be
at 9 o'clock , A. 31. , Thursday , Friday
and Saturday. Friday evening at 7:30 ,
comprising a sermon on the Passion of
our Lord. Easter Masses at 9:00 : and
