DeGROFF & CO. Geo. Laverty is now located at Round Pond, Oklahoma territory. Mrs. C.W. Bronson was numbered with the sick, first of the week. Mrs. B. F. Martz has a badly poisoned finger, resulting from a pin scratch. Auditor Foreman came down from Denver on official business, Wednesday. Mrs. J. E. Sanborn is much better and slowly recovering from her recent illness. Mrs. Fitzpatrick of Lincoln, has been the guest of McCook friends during the past week. Engineer Westland is able to be about again, after a seance of a few weeks with rheumatism. Chief Clerk Harris was confined to bed, the close of last week, by an attack of the prevailing distemper. A noon train carrying mails and pas sengers is talked of. Let her come. The first train come in Wednesday.—Curtis Courier.

A trampjolted from a passenger train near Benkelman fell on his head and shoulders and will probably die. His folks live in Sioux city. W. H. Rankin has moved his family to McCook, where they will make their home so long as the dining cars are run as at present.-—Akron Pioneer Press. Some of the boys would like to see an election about once a week. One of them realized, it is said, $40 for his influence and vote, another $25, and so on. George J. Frederick is local agent for the Workmen building and loan associa tion of Lincoln, Nebraska. See his ad vertisement elsewhere in this issue. When a Lincoln citizen attempts to shuffle off this mortal coil a little irregu larly, the newspapers refer to the trans action gaily as an attempt at “Hubero mania.” Thus the colonel will become famous. Dr. J. A. Gunn of Spearfish, South Dakota, has been appointed Burlington surgeon at this point. The doctor is an accomplished surgeon and a clever gen tleman. He is an old-timer in the valley, having formerly lived in Arapahoe. His many friends in the valley will warmly welcome him back to his old haunts. The present train service on the Has tings and Oberlin line has been the cause of much complaint since the change of time, November 5th, but it is likely that a change for the better will be made very soon. It is rumored that the mixed train now in service will be discontinued and that two trains, a passenger and a freight, will be again put on the line. Such a change will be appreciated by the patrons of the Burlington.—Red Cloud Argus. Twenty Burlington & Quincy engineers left Galesburg, Tuesday night, to take the places of the strikers on the Lehigh Valley road. Several persons are out west hiring men for the Lehigh Valley road. There is a large surplus of men on the Burlington, and it is believed many will go. The Burlington furnishes trans portation and 30 days leave of absence. Some of those going came here six years ago to take the places of the strikers on the Burlington. While riding on a B. & M. train, a few days ago, the gentleman beside me was much annoyed by the cinders that shot in above the lowered window of the front door of the car, covering the car seats and the clothing of the passengers. Several times he left his place and went forward to hoist it, but always came back unsuc cessful. In his final effort he was seen by a brakemau, who, pressing the spring in the proper way, at once raised the window and stopped the annoyance. When that was done, and done so easily by the company’s employe, the gentle man turned to me and said: “that’s what comes of knowing how to do it.” The very accomplishment of knowing how to do it, or the lack of knowing how to do it, is what makes a man a success or a failure in life. There are very few of us that know how to do it, but a great many who think they know. When a man fails in business of a kind not suited to his capacity or experience, it is generally because he was mistaken in thinking he knew how to do it. This possession of the knowledge of how to do a thing, or the want of it, is what makes or breaks. REPUBLICAN CITY. Conductor Wilkinson has charge of Curran’s crew. An operator from Roggen takes Hills' place at Orleans. Brakeman Wilson had his hand pretty badly pinched at McDonald, on Friday, the 17th inst. Operator Hills of Orleans, goes to At wood to relieve Agent Vaughan who is on the sick list. Brakeman Cropp is now a full-fledged resident of this city, having moved his family and effects here, last Friday. General Manager Holdrege’s private car is now at Lebanon, where Mr. Loomis and other nimrods are enjoying a few day’s sport. Hollinger, Durfee, Weible and others took in the K. of P. lodge at Alma, Mon day night. The K. of P. boys are quite numerous here. Cook and Nelling have had the “Sun flower” all to themselves, occasioned by Sprague taking 149 to McCook to have a snow plow adjusted to her pilot. Agent Morman and wife of Blakeman, departed for Battle Creek, Michigan, on Monday, the 20th inst. Mr. Riddle takes charge of the office during their absence. Mrs. W. W. Green and daughter Win nie, drove to Beaver City, last Tuesday, returning on Saturday. They were vis iting Mrs. Green’s sister and other rela tives and friends. Engineer Cook and Conductors Cur ran and Benjamin can mingle their tears in common, as they are all serving time, Curran and Cook five days each and Benjamin ten days. Conductor Cropp has charge of Benja min’s crew, Brakeman Sproal taking Cropp'S place. If the latter’s crew don’t have their arms and heads talked off it will be a miracle. Here's our sympathy boys. In an article last week, mentioning a visit to W. \V. Green’s, by Prof. Heard and others, Messenger Durfee’s name was unintentionally omitted from the list. We are very' sorry Durf. and sin cerely apologise. The article in last week’s issue stating that Agent Reed of Herndon, had been relieved by Carl was a mistake, and was started by Carl who had told some of the boys, just for a joke, that he was going to relieve Reed.

The “Maple Grove” den of infamy was the scene of a first-class row, last night, in which a certain and well known trav elling man was badly beaten and disfig ured. It seems that during a visit made that joint a few weeks since he incurred the enmity of the inmates, and when he put in an appearance there, last night, he was set upon by a number of the painted Amazons therein and badly dis figured. He will likely be around again when his head heals up and his eye as sumes a natural hue,—but he’ll give the “Maple Grove” a wide berth. The County-Seat Case. The Red Willow county-seat removal case came up in the state supreme court, Wednesday. The case was argued and submitted. The probabilities are that no decision will be reached in this import ant case until some time early in the new year, as the judges will require consider able time to give the matter due and proper consideration. The case of Russell vs. Gillespie in the supreme court on error from this county was heard, Wednesday, and the finding below was affirmed. A number of McCook Shriners are talking of attending the meeting of Se sostris shrine at Lincoln, Tuesday next. Conductor Lyman has been laid with a touch of high-life—the grip. Mrs. W. H. Davis of Trenton is visit, ing in the city, today. A son was born to Mrs. William Unger, last Friday. Dr.J. A. Gunn arrived in the city, last night.
