The band rendered an excellent pro gram at their initial open-air concert , Saturday evening , which called out the populace in numbers. The band of our city will play for the Red Cloud people , July 4th. They are to he congratulated upon securing the best music in the valley for the occasion. The work of securing right-of-way for an extension eastward of the C. H. Meeker ditch is progressing satisfac torily. The advent of the ditch is being hailed with joy on all hands. The sample of rye which stands guard at the door of our sanctum sanctorum was grown by B. F. Clark on A. W. Corey's Quarter Circle "C" ranch , east of the city. It is over five feetin height , and there are about 35 acres just as fine as the sample. The social at the Congregational church , last Friday evening , by the joint societies of the Congregational and Baptist congregations was largely at tended. The program rendered was full of interest. The net returns were very satisfactory. THE TRIBUNE is pained to hear of the death of Mrs. Walter Rowland at Indianola , Sunday , after a brief illness. Funeral occurred on Monday. The de ceased leaves a husband and four small children inconsolable over her sudden and untimely demise. A young man named George W. Smith was arrested , Saturday , for mortgaging an imaginery horse to Tailor Kalstedt as security for a pair of pantaloons. Squire Colvin turned him over to the tender mercies of Sheriff McCool for a period of 20 days to meditate upon his folly. / This week E. H. Doan closed nego tiations with A. J.Thompson and is now the owner of the McCook roller mills. It is the purpose of Mr. Doan to still further improve that excellent proper ty in due time ; and under the able man agement of himself and Mr. Paul THE TRIBUNE expects the McCook roller mill to continue to hold its own among the best mills in this section of Nebraska. * Children's day was observed by the Congregational Sunday school on an elaborate scale , Sunday morning. The church s interior was transformed into a perfect bower of flowers and birds , and the program of exercises was ap propriate and prettily rendered. The edifice was crowded. The floral arches , the harp and other decorations were truly beautiful evidences of the good taste and industry expended in prepar ing for the ever interesting occasion Children's day. The Methodist friends celebrated Children's day and the seventh Anni versary of their Sunday school in a splendid manner , Sunday evening. They had ah elaborate program of music and recitations , and all agree that the same was rendered with commendable smooth ness and rare excellence. The interior of the house of worship was decorated with a profusion of choice flowers , tune ful caged songsters , and-so-forth. The audience crowded the edifice to the ut most and many failed to gain admission. 1 . V 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. Humboldt flour. POTTER & EASTERDAY. Well , this is a little more like corn weather. Morel \ . A 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 place. On the afternoon of Wednesday , that which was mortal of the departed was 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 some and suggestive designs which filled the chancel , were particularly rich and enchanting. The services were held in the Con gregational church , but so vast was the concourse of people who came to pay a last tribute to the memory and virtues of the deceased that but a moiety were able to secure admission , llev. D. L. McBride expressed in tenderest , most heartfelt terms a glowing tribute to his absent friend. Words which touched a responsive chord in every heart present. THE TRIBUNE voices a universal sen timent in extending the bereaved and sorrowing the most profound sympathy. H. FOWLEK was born iu Canaan , Columbia county. New York , October 29th , 1848 , and died on June 15th , 1891 , aged 42 years , 7 months and 17 days. He came from New York to Illinois in 1869 and settled near the town of Fairbury in Livingston county , in which town , five years later , he was joined in marriage with Miss Henrietta McKee.who with her two children survive him. He re moved from Illinois to McCook about five years ago and immediately became associated in business with Mr. J. A. Wilcox , which business relation continued until his death. He leaves to sorrow at his departure wife. children , mother , sister , father-in-law , and many other relations more distant , together with a community of bereaved citizens. 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. * . * VALUATION TOTALS.

Kind friends one and all I will ever hold in most grateful remembrance your devoted helpfulness durinir Mr. Fowler's illness and the last of earth. Accept my thanks for them all. HENRIETTA FOWLER. McCook , June 18th. ADJOURNED. The June 15th , 1891 , term of Dis trict Court for Red Willow county is hereby adjourned to Monday , June 22d , 1891. J. E. COCHRAN , Judge. 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 ful. 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.
