Boyle has rented the Dr. Davis dwelling, and will occupy the same. Red Willow county will pull a fair corn crop out of this season yet. Chinch bugs are reported as doing some damage to corn on the Red Willow. Colonel Bill Huber has been circulating a petition around the city in the interest of Hon. A. F. Moore for postmaster. Andrew Brumgard and Katharine Kauffman, both of our city, were married by Rev. G. J. Jaiser in Culbertson on the 15th. It is now rumored that the mayor does not consider that the rights of the people are sufficiently guarded by the water or dinance, and will veto the same. Pastor Stevenson wishes to announce that the members and teachers of the Congregational Sunday school will meet as usual in the Lutheran church on next Sunday morning. The following circular was sent out by the superintendent of the water works, yesterday afternoon: “We will soon be able to furnish water for lawn use a short time daily. The whistle will blow for turning on and off. Hydrant must be closed and hose disconnected when whistle sounds for turning off.” Rev. A. W. Coffman of the Methodist church has been granted a vacation of three weeks, which he and the family will spend in the mountains of Colorado. He will occupy the pulpit regularly on the third Sunday in August. In the meantime only the Sunday school and prayer meeting services will be held. The Rt. Rev. Anson R. Graves, Bishop of the Missionary Jurisdiction of the Platte, of the Episcopal church, will no doubt be surprised if he should happen to see the ‘displayed” announcement that he dedicated the Zion Hill Metho dist church, up in Coleman precinct, on Sunday, the 16th instant, which appeared in our esteemed contemporary on the 21st. Mr. Norman Forbes of Barstow, Cali fornia, and Miss Ollie Hannah of Sheri dan, Wyoming, were united in marriage at La Junta, Colorado, Thursday of last week, the 20th instant. They at once returned to their future home in Barstow. Both of the contracting parties are well and favorably known here, where they resided for a number of years. The Tribune knows that it is expressing the sentiment of a large circle of admir ing friends here in wishing the happy couple the fullest measure of happiness and prosperity.

The Improved Order of Red Men is our latest secret society organization. Every time a man transgresses he has one more reason for trying to prove that the church is full of hypocrites. Note changes of advertisement by J. Albert Wells, J. A. Wilcox & Son, L. bowman & Son and E. L. Laycock, this issue. A gold leaf sign, a neat iron railing, and some appropriate metal furniture are among the improvements at Anderson’s grocery this week. This is a prolific epoch for secret po litical and other organizations in Mc Cook. An anti-Lincoln Land Co. organ ization is now proposed. As usual lightning visited south Mc Cook during the thunder storm, Tues day night, striking one of Mr. Mahanna’s buildings, but doing no harm. Episcopal church services next Sun day morning and evening at the Luther an church. Sunday school at 12 noon. Rev. Frank Durant, minister in charge. The rainfall in this immediate vicinity, Tuesday night was very slight, but re ports indicate a heavy downpour in oth er parts of the county, south and east of here. _ Rats, which hitherto have been com paratively unknown in this section of Ne braska, are becoming numerous to the extent of being decided nuisances and requiring some active campaigning against them. The materials are on the ground and work has been commenced on Captain John Archibald’s new cottage for his own occupancy on Monroe street. It will be built on the south lot of tne Dams prop erty recently bought by the Captain. Crying hard times will not make times any better. If it did we w7ould all be “flush.” It’s “tuff” sometimes, but all indications are that we must continue to take things as they come whether we like the way they are scheduled or not. Mrs.J.W. Underhill died of dysentery, Tuesday morning early, on the Will Long farm about two miles south of the city, leaving an infant of tender age. The funeral was held on Wednesday, burial being made in Longview cemetery of our city. At the regular meeting of the A. O. U. W. lodge, Monday evening, the fol lowing committee was selected to perfect arrangements for laying the corner stone of the temple: Dr. A. P. Welles, J. H. Bennett, Dennis Cullen, C. A. Leach and William Fane. The A. O. U. \V. band appeared in the the street, Tuesday evening, and gave a very acceptable open air concert, render ing a fine program of music in good style. The boys are showing the result of prac tice and are rapidly taking rank among the best bands of western Nebraska, up on which fact they are to be encouraged and congratulated. In order to increase their water sup ply, which the dry weather and the di verting of the water into the irrigation ditch have seriously impaired, the com pany is having another well sunk in the neighborhood of the present cluster. In the meantime they have issued a circular calling for the greatest economy in the use of water and forbidding its use for lawn purposes for the present. It is to be hoped that this condition of affairs may not last longer than a few days. In the event of a prolonged absence of water the lawns, trees and shrubbery of the city will suffer incalculable injury. Complaint is registered at this office that the highway leading south from the middle river bridge is almost impassable on account of the terrible odors arising from dead animals which have been hauled there and not properly buried. It is difficult to understand how any one could be guilty of such an outrageous act. At any rate the authorities should promptly abate the nuisance;and in future the practice of hauling dead animals anywhere and failing to properly cover them should be frowned down, even if somebody has to pay a heavy fine. It is heathenish, disgusting and unhealthy. Wall paper 5 cents a roll at h. W. Mc Connell & Co.’s. The Regular Crist. The city council met, Wednesday eve ning, in regular session, Mayor Brewer, Councilmen McAdams, Spickelmier, Ya'rger and Steinmetz, Clerk Warren and Attorney Rittenhouse being in attend ance. Bills as follows were allowed: W. C. Bullard & Co., lumber.$35 90 l’redmore Bros., black smithing. 3 05 H. H. Berry, cemetery supt. 7 00 Reports of H. H. Berry as police judge and cemetery superintendent were ap proved and placed on file. The finance committee was instructed to collect the amount back on the slush fund and pay $50 of said money to C. W. Barnes and hold balances until called for by the council. Report of Treasurer Laycock was placed on file, showing balance on hand as fol lows: Occupation fund.$1,101 24 Water fund. 1,162 21 Cemetery fund. 1,052 03 General fund. 375 94 Fireman’s fund. 231 51 Total balance on hand. 3,922 93 Ordinance No. 45 was repealed, and a new water ordinance, with a few material changes, passed. It is stated, however, that the mayor may withhold his approv al of the same. The annual appropria tion ordinance was also passed. The to tal amount appropriated is $5,500. Some One Was Hoggish. Two or three consignments of hogs be came badly mixed up in the McCook stock yard, Monday night, in a mysteri ous manner. Monday evening several cars of hogs came down the Frenchman valley branch, shipped by Pence of Wau neta and McClelland of Imperial. C. T. Brewer also had some hogs in the yard. During the night those hogs became so friendly that it became a difficult mat ter on the following morning to get head or tail of things, and the matter has not yet been satifactorily settled so far as Mc Clelland is concerned; he being of the opinion that Pence got the pick of the three consignments. Brewer is not a heavy loser by the peculiar transaction; but McClelland evidently holds the bag. A number of people seem to be implicat ed in the shady affair; and it would not be surprising if something should drop in the near future with an unpleasant sound. Supt. Campbell has ordered locks for the gates to the several sub-di visions of the yard, and it is not expected that such a thing will soon occur again. The death of the Cummins child at Plattsmouth, recently, from inhaling the gas from a five-gallon tank of gasoline, may serve as a warning to our readers. It seems that the can had just been deliver ed filled. While the can was allowed to remain on the porch, the child which was about two years old, pulled out the cork stopper placed its mouth over the hole and soon inhaled enough poisonous gas to throw it into spasms, which resulted in its death within five hours, in spite of the efforts made by the doctors to save the dear one. Be careful with your gasoline can especially if you have little children of an inquisitive nature around. While in Lincoln, first of the week, Commissioner Ryan had occasion to speak with State Treasurer Bartley. The conversation naturally turned to the all absorbing question of finance and banks. The Treasurer is a practical banker and a member of the state banking board. “It was most gratifying to me,’’says the Com missioner, “to have him state in unmis takable terms and of his own motion that the banks of McCook were in the best condition of any banks in the state of Nebraska, and to be congratulated upon that fact.” Strictly for Cash. The very unusual stringency in finan cial circles makes it absolutely necessary for us to adopt a strictly cash basis on which to conduct business in the future, and we fondly hope that our many old friends and customers will appreciate the situation, which is imperative, and will in the future give us their trade, as in the past. We can save you money be selling for cash, as well as protect ourselves. J. A. Wilcox & Son. July 24th, 1893. Samuel Reed left for Wauneta, this morning, where he expects to make his home. He took a carload of lumber along and will build two cottages for rental purposes. His farm southwest of the city is being cultivated by Mr. Voss. Success to him in his new home. Gracie Strasser gave a delightful lawn party last evening to a large company of happy young friends, in celebration of her birthday. The little ones had a rare time. Mr. Lawrence of the Peoples’ National bank of Denver, who was threatened by a mob, the other night, passed througn here, on 2 this morning, east-bound. The A. O. U. W. temple corner stone laying will occur August 14th. Grand Master Tate is expected to deliver the oratory on the occasion. Miss Vera Hileman departed for Has tings, Tdesday morning, to remain sev eral weeks the guest of her aunt, Mrs. H. B. Martindale. The Improved Order of Red Men ex pect to institute a lodge in McCook, August 12th. Commissioner Spots has a gang of men at work on Madison street. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVORERS. Do your children belong to the Junior C. E. here? If not enroll them at once. Meetings 6 o’clock, Sunday evenings, in Lutheran church. The St. Andrew’s C. E. society of Liv erpool, England, have raised $560 to send one of their members as a mission ary to China. That needs no comment. It isn’t a very large society either. Miss Maud McMillen will lead the meeting, Sunday evening, the 30th. Meeting commences at 7 sharp. Don’t be late. This will be a good time for some of you to break the record in this particular. Try it. Strangers and others are cordially welcomed. Here’s something from the Juniors of Boston: “On Sunday recently, the Jun iors of the South End Tabernacle carried out to the hospitals nearly one hundred bunches of violets, each bearing its pre cious verse of comfort.” Who derived the greater blessing, the children or the hospital patients? “’Tis more blessed to give than to receive.” The lookout committee of Congrega tional Chinese C. E. of Fresno, Califor nia, before the meeting commences, go through the lanes and alleys of China town inviting their friends to prayer meeting. There’s practical Christianity for you; and from Chinamen too. Why not do the same here. If Chinamen can invite their friends we certainly ought to be able to invite ours. What is the Christian Endeavor move ment? I did not know that there is a person in this country who did not know what it is; it seems that there is though, right here in McCook, too. It is a com bination of young people as our constitu tion puts it,“For Christ and the Church. ’ ’ Its membership is divided into two class es, active and associate. Upon the active members devolve the organization and life of the society. iThey signing a card pledging themselves to attend all the meetings, unless prevented by a good reason, and to take some part therein, aside from singing. None but professed Christians of course are admitted as ac tive members. The associate members are young people of good character, who like Christian associations, and they pledge themselves to attend the meetings of the society, although they are not pledged to take part unless they feel so inclined. The work is done through committees, such as look out committee, which passes upon all applications for membership. The prayer meeting com mittee have charge of the weekly prayer meetings and see that a leader is appoint ed. The social committee have the so cial part of the work under their care. These, while not all, are the fundamen tal and most important ones. Each so ciety is under the control of the church of which it is a part. For instance, a so ciety organized in the Methodit church here, would be under the charge of that church just the same as their Sunday school, w’ithout being deprived of inter denominational fellowship with the young folks in other denominations. The wearing of amber beads to prevent or cure croup, quinsy, epilepsy or nose bleed, the idea that measles is one of the necessary and unpreventable diseases of childhood, and that “long hair makes weak children,” and the popular notion that the second summer of childhood is more fatal to life than any other period, are nursery superstitions against which a well known physician has at last made a vigorous protest. Statistics prove that more infants die in the first summer than the second. The large number of deaths that do occur in the second summer are due, says this authority, almost entirely “to digestive and hence preventable di seases,” for which parents are often more responsible than the summer. Mr. B. J. Toland is in our city for the purpose of organizing a class in writing. Mr. Toland has been engaged in busi ness college and normal school work for a number of years and is a thoroughly competent teacher. Specimens of his penmanship are on exhibition at the post office. The Tribune has some advertising space to dispose of at a reasonable price and will take in exchange for the same silver dollars at one hundred cents. If there are any merchants in McCook who have silver dollars that they are afraid of The Tribune is willing to take them and give you their face value in puffs. Hon. C. E. White, United States At torney, will be in McCook, Danbury, Wilsonville and Oberlin, during the three weeks commencing July 25. He will take testimony in the Indian depredation claims. _ Cyril Templin is laid up with a broken collar bone caused by falling off the scaf fold of a house he is working on north of the city. Twenty thousand dollars per day is what the A. O. U. W. is paying widows and orphans of its deceased members. The infant child of Hiram Cooley joined its mother in the spirit land, Sun day night. Interment on Monday. Wall paper 5 cents a roll at L. W. Mc CONNELE & Co.’S. Roasting ears are on the market al ready. You can Economize By using Royal Baking Powder t > the exclusion of all other leavening agents. The official ana lysts report it to be 27% greater in leavening strength than the other powders. It has three times the leavening strength of many of the cheap alum powders. It never fails to make good bread, biscuit and cake, so that there is no flour, eggs or butter spoiled and wasted in heavy, sour and uneatable food. Do dealers attempt, because times are dull, to work off old stock, or low grade brands of baking powder ? Decline to buy them. During these times all desire to be economical, and Royal is the most Economical Baking Powder. PEOPLE YOU KNOW. C.S. Lincoln and family have returned to Iowa to live.
