put him in a room with a Bible , an ap

when he returned , reading the Bible , he
would make a clergyman out of him ;
if eating the apple , a farmer ; and if in

In these days when it rains whenever
it has an opportunity a few statistics in
regard to the rainfall of this and last
year may be interesting : In May , 1890 ,
only 1.55 inches of rain fell while in
May , 1891 , we had 5.37. For the six
months ending June , 1890 , 8.42 inches
fell , but during the corresponding
months of 1891 , being only 54- months
thus far , 18.11 inches have moistened
the earth in this vicinity. For the year
ending December , 1890 , 15.28 inches
fell , while for the five months of the
present season , ending May 3lst , 15.26
inches have fallen. Thus far in June ,
2.75 inches have been precipitated upon
us and the indications are that June
will be fully as wet as May.
The reader may imagine Henry Col-
lumburg's surprise , the other day , to
have one of his horses drop completely
out of sight , while out plowing in the
field. The continued wet weather had
softened the earth over a wolf hole , and
when the horse stepped on it he drop
ped through , only his nose being above
ground. By dint of hard work Henry
got the animal out without injury ; when
the horse was released and on his feet ,
he dropped over on his side from sheer
exhaustion and fright. There is another
wolf hole only a few rods away from
this one and Henry keeps a good look
out in that direction all the time , for
fer-r that all the holes are not in the
bottom of the sea.

McCook mourns the death of a noble
citizen and true. In the twilight hours
of Monday , Frank H. Fowler's life went
out , and his bright spirit separated from
tbia pain-racked tenement of earth ,
winged ita flight to realms celestial and
eternal. His was a heroic battle for
life , and a calm and peaceful surrender
to the inevitable. It wan well with
Frank H. Fowler's soul.
Suddenly stricken down with u fatal
and insidious malady , his condition had
been a source of most intense solicitude
of this community for two weeks past.
Aim at the last , when the summons
came , the blow fell with crushing force
upon the dear ones of his home and
heart , and called forth the spontaneous
utterances of profound regret and sym
pathy of this whole people , in whose
affections he held a high and enduring

conveyed to Longview cemetery and
deposited in the quiet bosom of Mother
Earth , the obsequies being attended
with the highest marks of respect for
him who has gone before. The Masons
and Workmen had the remains in charge
and conducted the exercises at the cem
etery in accordance with the rituals of
their respective orders. The floral of
ferings were profuse , exquisite and
beautifully symbolic , representing in
nature's most charming form sentiments
more tender and lovely than language
can convey. The floral crowns , cross
and crown , the gates , the harp with the
broken string , and the many other hand

the chancel , were particularly rich and

SUNDAY AT ST. PATRICK'S.
Last Sunday , the 14th , witnessed one
of the most imposing scenes occurring
in the history of the Catholic church of
McCook. The event was particularized
in the presence of Rt. Rev. Bishop Bon-
acuru ol Lincoln , Neb. , who adminis
tered Confirmation to a class of forty.
The first Mass was celebrated by the
Rt. Rev. Bishop , at which those who
were to be confirmed partook of Holy
Communion. Long before the hour for
the High Mass great numbers were seen
winding their way towards St. Patrick's
church , where Confirmation was to be
administered after the conclusion of
High Mass. Promptly at 10:30 A. M. ,
the Rev. Pastor J. W. Hickey intoned
the Aspergea while the choir took up
the beautiful antiphon "Sprinkle me ,
0 Lord , with hyssop , and I shall be
cleansed. " Following the Asperges ,
Mass was commenced by the Pastor in
the presence of hia Lordship , while the
harmonious strains from the choir filled
the beautiful edifice with its sweet mel
ody that is so inspiring and character
istic in the Catholic Ritual. Immedi
ately after High Mass a beautiful ad
dress was given to the "Confirmaudi , "
dwelling principally on Confirmation as
a Sacrament , when St. Peter and St.
Paul went to Samaria to confirm those
whom St. Philip had converted and bap
tized. The Sacrament being adminis
tered , a short exhortation for the perse
verance in their good resolutions and
devotion to Christ's church was encour
agingly given by his Lordship. 1 he
services closed with the "Te Deum"
beautifully rendered by the congrega
tion. * . *

trict Court for Red Willow county is
hereby adjourned to Monday , June 22d ,

McCook , Neb. , June 10th , 1891.
THE TRIBUNE hereby acknowledges
the receipt of a buxom basket of cher
ries from the Crete Nurseries. The
fruit is fine and no mistake. Col. E.F.
Stephens has thanks for his thoughtful-
ness. He informs us that in addition
to their extensive cherry orchards , which
usually yielded from 400 to 600 bushels
of fruit , they have vineyards which
promise 15,000 pounds of grapes and
80 acres of orchards , a small portion of
which only is coming into bearing , and
which will yield this season 10,000 to
12,000 bushels of apples , at the price
likely to prevail the crop of fruit having
failed in the east , this will yield a hand
some sum of money. The Nursery aims
particularly to sell directly to the plan
ter , to encourage direct trade , and , as
far as possible , avoid the intervention
of middle men and dealers. They wish
to encourage people to deal with home
nurseries. They have also built up a
large business in planting timber claims
in which they have been very success
For the space of a half hour , early
this morning , a tremendous rain fell
here. An immense volume of water
poured down our streets and few cellars
on the lower streets escaped a flooding.
Had the rain continued long the damage
must have been serious. The area wall
on the south side of the Union block
fell in and some water entered the cel
lar under that handsome block. The
cellar under McMillen's drug store ,
Dewey's laundry and others were more
or less flooded. But in no case was the
damage at all severe. These repeated
floodings should stir up our business
men on Main street especially to some
decisive action in this matter. Serious
results may be averted.
The social and reunion held in Meeker
hall , last evening , by the members of
St. Patrick's church , was a splendid
success. Ample and attractive amuse
ments were provided for the large attend
ance , and the church's exchequer was
handsomely replenished by the liberal
patronage accorded. Reizenstein furn
ished the music.
