Carry out the McCook man's idea of
locating the Methodist college. If one
were located in McCook the other two
should be located in h 1.
We naturally conclude that this is
the age of brass when members of the
M. E. church propose building a Metho
dist seminary at McCook and ask God
to bless their efforts.
That was a bright idea of one of the
McCook committee that McUook want
ed the Methodist seminary so that it
might reform the town. Our idea is
that the influence would be all exerted
the other wav.
If the Methodist church has any in
terest in McCook we suggest that it
send about twenty-five evangelists up
there and see what can be done along
the line of reform before they try to
establish a young educational institu
tion along the line of Christian work.
As long as McCook stands it will be
a saloon town with gamblers and pros
titutes forming one of its chief attrac
tions. Will the Methodists select
such a place to build her seminary and
educate the boys and girls "and young
men and women of the church , or the
children of the friends of the church.
As a Methodist , believing in the
grand mission of the youngest and
second largest church in the world , we
want to say that McCook is the last
place in Western Nebraska for a
Methodist seminary. In the first
place the institution would not benefit
McCook financially or otherwise ; in
the second place McCook could not
benefit the seminary financially or
otherwise. Saloons will always flour
ish in McCook , but a Methodist insti
There were'three contestants for the
Wesleyan seminary , viz : Bartley , Mc
Cook and Orleans. We hope Bartley
will get it. She is entitled to it. It
is a better town for an institution of
the kind than either of the other places.
McCook is a prosperous little city and
all that , in fact it is the town of south
western Nebraska and will doubtless
continue as such and at no distant day
be considerable of a city. But it is
the last place in western Nebraska to
locate a Methodist seminary. Outeide
of the immoral atmosphere of McCook ,
the expenses both for the institution
itself and the students would be twice
over what they would be at Bartley.

Fruit , ink , blood or other stains
should be removed before the clothes
are wet in suds. Tea , coffee , wine and
nearly all fruit stains can be taken out
with clear boiling water , if not , they
will yield to borax , ammonia , chloride
of lime , or the fumes of burning sul
phur matches , held under them.
Fresh ink stains can often be removed
by covering them with salt , dampening ,
and allowing them to remain several
hours , if they cannot , soak them in
warm milk or vinegar and water. Soak
old ink stains in turpentine or in a
weak solution of citric or oxalic acid.
If the latter is used , wash in ammonia
and water , to neutralize the acid , and
rinse in two clear waters. A solution
of oxalic acid will remove iron rust.
Saturate blood stains- with kerosene ,
then rub in tepid water and with soap
