The McCook tribune. (McCook, Neb.) 1886-1936, March 31, 1893, Image 5
The oniy Pure C.cam of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes—40 Years the Standard. Well, the merry-go-round is with us again. Quite an exciting runaway, Wednes day. _ The Workmen held a special meeting, Saturday night, adding a half dozen or more to their already marvelous member ship. At the Harris Hardware you can get a Sewing Machine a good one from $20 to $45 with the company’s guarantee for five years.___ The Christian Endeavorers are train ing a choir from among their ranks to provide music for the coming convention in our city. Last Monday evening the Degree of Honor, A. O. U. W., held a social in Meeker hall, for its members, which was a most thoroughly enjoyable affair. The buildings west of the Famous oc cupied by Messrs. Kapke and McMillen Bros, are being moved over to east Den nison street, opposite the Arlington hotel. _ A partnership has been formed by W. E. West and Samuel Criswell for the purpose of doing all-around work, carpet laying, tree planting, house cleaning, and the like. John Williams, a recent arrival from Illinois, has rented the Charles Squires farm out in 29-4-30, and moved onto the same this week. Mr. Williams will make an excellent citizen. C. A. Eldred, an old friend and a gen tleman always, is attending to court bus iness this week. McCook may be a nice little town, but we would much rather see Charley located in Kansas.—Atwood (Kansas) Citizen. The Tank Kee entertainments an nounced to be given under the auspices of the M. E. church soon have been de clared off on account of the sickness of Tank Kee, and his inability to be here on the dates advertised. Removai.:—McMillen Bros, have re moved to east Dennison street, opposite the Arlington hotel, where they can be found as usual with everything you may desire in the line of first-class harness and saddlery. Remember the place, east Dennison street, opposite the Arlington hotel. OUTING SHOES. It long ago seemed as though shoes could never be better and never be cheaper, but they are better now and cheaper now than they ever were before. The great every day favorite is our men’s and ladies’ shoe. It is as much a boon to the pocketbook as it is to the feet. It won’t wear you out to wear it out. You don’t need to take care of it; it takes care of itself. It will give you solid com fort for the simple reason that a better shoe for knockabout pur poses has never been produced. If prices never appealed to you before, the price of this shoe will, for it costs only §2.50. It will look nicer and wear longer than any shoe on earth. It is time to inaugurate that corn campaign. The suggestion that the Nebraska building at the fair be largely devoted to the propagation of knowl edge concerning this great cereal has been received with enthusiasm in all parts of the state. Now let us have definite plans from the Columbian oommission and assurances that this unequaled opportunity to show our wealth in tnis direction will not be neglected. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kapke, last Friday. James Kirby, who lives about ten miles north of here, fell from his wagon, last Saturday, fracturing his hip bone quite severely._ Call and inspect Kalstedt’s immense stock of new goods. The finest selection ever exhibited in the city. Don’t wait until the line is broken. B. F. Troxel reports the sale of the south half of section 29-2-30 to Joseph Croker and the northwest quarter of sec tion 15-1-30 to C. B. Gray. Now while we have time let us rake the dead grass and dressing off our lawns, clean up the winter accumulations of rub bish in the back yard and prepare for making our premises as pleasing and cheerful looking as possible. The Congregational people at a busi ness meeting held after services, Sunday morning, decided to build a parsonage on the lot south of the church. They expect to commence work some time next month. We regret that Hon. James Harris of our city will not have an opportunity of testing the capacity of Pat Egan’s pants. J. D. Porter of Tennessee has been named as Egan’s successor. They are preparing a nice Easter pro gram for the evening service at the Red Willow school house, next Sunday. The exercises, music, etc., by the children and others, will be interesting, appro priate and enjoyable, commemorating an event fraught with richest blessings to all. _ Monday evening, March 27th, McCook lodge 61, A. 0. U. W., elected as repre sentatives to Grand Lodge in May: F. D. Burgess, J. A. Wilcox, W. H. Davis, A. P. Welles and C. H. Meeker. Alternates are F. A. Thompson, W. W. Archibald, C. K. Putman, J. H. Dwyer, and L. J. Spickelmier. The indications are that the city elec tion on next Tuesday will be the most hotly contested one in the history of the city. But the “slush fund” will not pre vail, nor will the ill gotten gain of fallen women and of gamblers win the victory. Felix Kennedy will be elected mayor by a safe majority. Note the prediction. The McCook club room was entered, last Friday night, by unknown persons who were intoxicated or lost to all sense of decency, and the various departments were befouled in a most disgusting and vile manner, and a condition of wildest disorder inaugurated. It seems to be al most incredible that such acts of vandal ism should be perpetrated in this civil ized age. The “laying on hands” for complaints, especially in children, is taking the place of Christian science. A McCook mother cured heir boy of the cigarette habit with one dose. She laid her left hand on the boy’s neck, her right hand on a substan tial slipper—and then laid the slipper where it would do the most good. It effected a cure and a relapse is not looked for. _ This community was surprised and saddened by the news of the death of Mrs. Joseph Spotts, which took place at an early hour yesterday morning at the family residence in east McCook. The deceased leaves a husband and one little child to mourn her taking off, and to them all hearts go out in profoundest sympathy. The funeral will occur on Sunday, if the remains can be preserved until that date. Those editors who are always and eternally gabbling about exposing some body; bragging about their independ ence; telling how they are standing up for the freedom of the press and declar ing they don’t care who it hits they are going to tell the truth—never expose anything except their ears; are the most arrant sychophants in the profession; are generally awful examples of the black mailing class of newspaper frauds, and seldom or never tell the truth except when it may bring them gain or make them to appear valiant. The announcement of the death of Willie, youngest child of Postmaster and Mrs. Troth, Saturday morning, came upon the community with the startling and saddening effect of a great surprise, as it was generally supposed that their little boy was getting along nicely. How ever, membraneous croup set in, the pre vious night, rendering the operation of tracheotomy imperative. Drs.Kay, Davis and Gage performed the operation the following morning, from which the little fellow in his enfeebled state did not re cover. The funeral occurred on Sunday afternoon, a large company of sympa thizing friends following the remains of the dear one to Longview. There were a number of beautiful floral tributes. The bereaved ones have the fullest, tenderest sympathy of all in their profound sorrow. Today is Good Friday. The lady byker creates quite a sensa tion. _ Tank Kee will not exhibit in our city as announced. Columbian envelopes are the govern ment’s latest fad. - ' Benkelman has temporarily closed her public schools on account of sickness. Giggle, gabble, gobble, git, was Oliver Wendell Holmes’ definition of an after noon tea. _ Work on W. A. Mitchell's dwelling on north Manchester street was commenced on Monday morning. The Lincoln Journal mentions Cal. Wiggins as a probable appointment for register of the McCook land office. C. A. Stephens, who recently arrived from Iowa, and purchased a farm about five miles east of the city, has a sick child. A burned child fears the fire, but child ren of older growth evidently do not judging from the number of prairie fires to be seen all about us. The First National bank of Lincoln has been approved as reserve agent for the First National bank of our city by the comptroller of the currency. The assistant secretary of the interior has affirmed the decision of the general land office in the case of Orpheus Bur lingame vs.Laura M. Jones from McCook land district. Bert Lufkin moved out onto his farm in Perry precinct, first of the week. He expects to break out a large amount of land, this season, and has been greatly improving his house. C. L. DeGroff let the contract, Tues day, for his new house. It will be one of the roomiest and most comfortable dwellings in the city when completed. U. C. Killebrew secured the contract. Work will be inaugurated at once. Last Saturday evening, James E. Eaton had the misfortune to stumble over some articles on the stair-way, falling down a number of flights, breaking one of his arms at the shoulder; an injury which will require a numbei of week to repair. Easter services at the Methodist church, Sunday, will consist of a sermon by Rev. Coffman at eleven o’clock in the morning, and exercises by the Sunday school at 7:30 in the evening. Cordial invitation extended to all to be present at both services. C. B. Gray is now sole proprietor of the Palace restaurant, having this week purchased the interest of B. F. Troxel in that popular establishment. Under the new management the Palace will be maintained up to the old standard of ex cellence, and Mr. Gray hopes to enjoy the patronage of all old friends and to make as many new friends as prompt and courteous treatment will attract. The finding of a young girl named Bates in the Kaley house of ill fame in South McCook on Wednesday morning, and the developments that a scoundrel named Keley had kept her away from home all night in an endeavor to take her to Omaha for immoral purposes, and the enraged father of the girl going gun ning for the fellow with a Winchester, startled the people of this city most pro foundedly, Wednesday morning. Kelley' was afterwards arrested and placed in jail; from which he was released not many hours thereafter, with the under standing, we are informed, that he leave the city immediately, which it is thought he did. Hell is not hot enough for such scamps, but McCook should be made too hot for them. It is a delicate subject, we appreciate, and we have referred to the matter afore times, but the fact remains that the city cemetery needs attention, this spring. With but few exceptions graves and family plats are in a sadly neglected state, in the city of the dead out on the hill. We make these observations simply to remind some of a neglected or forgotten duty. The city cemetery is not in har mony with the good taste, wealth and tender sentiment of this people; and The Tribune hopes the coming season will see a marked change wrought therein. That trees, shrubbery, flowers, grass, if not the more costly monuments, fences etc., trill be placed there; and that the general appearance of the last resting place of so many of our dear ones will be greatly improved. Monday, Sylvester Cordeal had an ex perience while attempting to ford the Republican river at a point near Culbert son, which will suffice him for the rest of his natural days. When he got al most to the south bank of the river his bronchos took a notion to go in bathing, and both of them laid down in the wa ter, breaking the whipple tree of the buggy, from which they became disen gaged, making their wTay back to the north side of the stream. (Sylvester is a little disconnected about some of these details.) Not being able to swim, he was about in the position of being be tween the devil and the deep blue sea. After spending a few hours in the buggy, Micawber-like waiting for something to turn up, by some vigorous yelling he finally attracted the attention of a far mer who drove into the river with his team, and pulled his buggy ashore. Af terwards catching the bronchos, helping to fix up the vehicle, and sending the luckless Syl. onward bound. (We might add that the Culbertson bridge was nsed on the homeward crossing of the river.)

The “anti-faders” are doing their best to bring the schools back to the old system of teaching the three R’s, and the intro duction of a little Spanish will strike them as an attempt to overturn the con stitution of the United States. The serious illness of Editor J. D. Cal houn of Lincoln aroused the earnest sym pathy of the craft throughout the state, and news of his convalescence will be hailed with satisfaction all along the line. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov’t Report _ABSOLUTELY PURE _ Residence property for sale in all parts of the city by (U. Ryan. Unprecedented Attendance. In point of number present J. Albert Wells’ postponed spring opening of dry goods, millinery and carpets, last Friday afternoon and evening, was the most successful and gratifying opening he has ever held in McCook. The quantity and quality of goods on display in every department were fully up to their high standard, making an assortment of varied excellence and sub stantial merit only excelled in the more pretentious cities.* In the dry goods department Mr. Wells displayed good judgment in the solid excellence and in the rich variety of his purchases of dress goods, linens, muslins, and in fact of all the multitudi nous articles which go to make up a com plete and attractive line. But it was in the millinery department that the largest measure of interest cen tered, and Miss Cory’s cleverness and skillful taste were never exhibited to grea ter advantage than in the marvelous cre ations in charming hats and bonnets shown, (of which there was a large dis play,) not to attempt an enumeration of the endless array of the pretty and fash ionable things to be seen in that depart ment. The carpet department contained a full stock of ingrains, Brussels,rugs, portieres etc. It has always been one of the mark ed characteristics of the establishment, and this season’s line is complete. The window displays were decidedly pretty and effective, calling forth many words of appreciation and praise. Prof. Reizenstein’s orchestra of four pieces furnished some delightful music for the evening opening, adding a pleas ing element to an auspicious event. Crltser-Russell. On Wednesday evening of this week, at the home of the bride’s parents on Driftwood, Mr. William L. Critser and Miss Gold A.Russell were made husband anil wife, Pastor Stevenson officiating. Only the relatives and nearest friends witnessed the ceremony uniting in mar riage two of our sterling and most esti mable young people, who start out on the voyage of life with the wishes of a host of friends for their prosperity and happiness. A sumptuous wedding feast was spread in honor of the event. The happy couple have settled down to housekeeping on the Golfer farm. They were nicely remembered as the following list indicates: Rocker and dining room chairs, Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Russell; silver table spoons, Mr. and Mrs. LAV. Critser; silver tea set, berry dish and bread tray, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Weaver and Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Colvin; table linen, Mr. and Mrs. W. O.

Their First Opening. Mrs. Furbush & Reynolds’ millinery opening, Wednesday afternoon and even ing, was a modest though entirely grati fying affair. Many ladies inspected their fine and stylish selection of millinery, flowers and trimmings, and were delight ed with their array of fashionably and tastily trimmed hats and bonnets. The ladies are both clever artists in that line, and have occasion to feel well satisfied with the success of their initial spring opening event, and with the attendance and attention it received. The Tribune is at a loss to under stand why prairie fires are allowed to burn on unmolested as they have been lately and still are. The nightly horizon is illuminated with them, and the atmo sphere filled with the stench of their un ceasing smoke. Thousands of acres have been burned over and some damage doubtless occasioned. All perhaps on account of carelessness and thoughtless ness. They are dangerous and expensive nuisances and should be abated. Wednesday afternoon Rev. W. C. Stev enson united in marriage at his residence Mr. John Engstrom and Miss Anna Hill, | both of Frontier county. If you want fire or tornado insurance in Reliable Companies, call on C. J. Ryan.

What they do refer to are the tights that correctly dressed wo men have been wearing for the last two years in lieu of peticoats. With the ad vent of crinoline and abundance of un derskirts will be in vogue again, as they were a decade ago, and women loaded down with stiffly starched linen will rustle as they walk like the wind among the forest trees. PI ews-Dudek. Monday evening at the home of the bride’s father Joseph Dudek of Red Wil low precinct, Rev.W.C.Stevenson united in marriage Mr. Mathew Plews and Miss Katherine Dudek, the marriage taking place in the presence of the relatives and a few near friends.
