McCook as Seen by a Stranger.
Mr. Editor.—At the solicitation of
our personal friend, W. W. McMillen of
your city, it was a pleasure to leave our
home in Lincoln, Nebraska, December
1st, and take passage on the B. & M.
train leaving at 12:20 p. m. for the west,
the destination being McCook. The day
was cold but clear—most favorable in
deed for observation along the route of
travel. One no sooner boards one of the
handsome trains of this enterprising rail
way system than he feels himself with
pleasant surroundings and the best of
railway comforts, such as to make travel
upon the line a pleasure instead of a
burden. The crew that held the train in
control was made up of clean-handed
It was our pleasure to note the beauti
ful prairie country and pleasant looking
towns and cities as we passed along.
Frugal and handsome homes dotted the
landscape on every side, indicating pros
perous and happy life upon the plain
once barren and bare. Of course some
were more fortunate than other—perhaps
more careful of their means—and wiser
in their management. This accounts for
the better appearance of some farm
houses as compared with others. Fair
mont. Hastings, Holdrege and Oxford
were surprises in their way, all of them
better than we anticipated. But now we
step from the train at McCook and soon
find ourself comfortably entertained in
the home of Mr. McMillen. Our time
of arrival was too late to view the city.
This remained for us to do after a night's
rest. We had formed a mental picture
of the place. Daylight metamorphosed
our picture. We found that our mental
photograph was antiquated and no more
represented the beautiful little city on a
lovely prairie mound than a mole hill
represents the glory of the Allegheny
mountains. It is beautiful for situation.
The improvements are quite up to the
times. In general appearance it is very
tasteful. Many of the residences are
beautiful, with tasty surroundings. The
churches are better structures than are
generally to be found in so young a city.
The waterworks and electric light plant
indicate public spirit and thrift equal
to any we have ever seen, and especially
in so new a town.
It was our privilege to meet with a few
of the best citizens and business men.
The closeness of the times has most cer
tainly not blighted their hopes and ex
pectations as to the future prosperity of
both their city and surrounding commu
nity. The business houses compare most
favorably with those of their class in any
other city we have visited. Business,
however, seemed not to be as brisk and
promising as it should be. The cause is
apparent to everybody these days. It
dare not be laid to the lack of business
enterprise and foresight of the business
men. No. it lies deeper and far beyond
their control. This is true of our whole
Upon general principles we regard
McCook as a monument city of western
push and enterprise of the most com
mendable sort. Towards this the B. &
M. system of railway has contributed
largely, and, if we mistake not, will
strive to have the lion’s share in the fu
ture prosperity of municipal glory. Our
friend treated us to a windy ride over
the country north of the city, from one
to four o’clock p. m. The ride was re
freshing to a degree of frigidness not the
most desirable. As there is no discom
fort without its corresponding comfort,
so was it in this case. In lieu of the cold
windy ride, we had the pleasure of view
ing the fine farm of our friend, warming
our benumbed limbs at the stove in a
comfortable sod palace, the first we had
the pleasure of entering in our life. Here
we were safe for a time from the persist
ent attack of the wind. We enjoyed the
bartering of our friend with the farmer’s
wife for two good fat chickens, for our
Sunday dinner, as we supposed, and in
which we were not disappointed. A cir
cuitous route gave us an excellent view
of the country, and brought us back to
the city, much pleased with what we
saw and none the worse for our windy
Sunday morning opened up bright,
crisp, and withal cheerful. So far as we
could judge the Sabbath is well respected
.by the good people of the city. At least
we saw nothing of a loud and boisterous
nature. At eleven a. m. and 7:30 p. m.
we preached to intelligent and appreci
ative audiences in the Congregational
church. The church is a fine one, new,
and taking the place of the one destroyed
by a cyclone.
At 9:10 p. m., bidding adieu tc o^r old
and new-made friends, we boarded the
train eastward, more than gratified with
our visit to this metropolis of western
More than this, we recognize the fact
that many good people in the east, who
have no abiding place that they can call
their own home in fee simple, could find
and build such a home in Southwestern
Nebraska. A few more years of honest
toil, planting and caring for fruit and or
namental trees, and otherwise tilling the
soil, will not be disappointing in the
the least. The soil, for the greater part,
is rich and productive. The time was
when eastern Nebraska seemed no more
inviting to the settler. Look at it now
and vou will have at least an approxi
mate idea of what western Nebraska will
be in a decade farther on in the history
of development. The discouraging fea
tures of this section of the state, (and
there are some of these), are by no means
comparable to the encouraging features,
if justly considered, hence we look for a
bright'future, not only for the city, but
for the surrounding country as well.

“Little Russia” was the battle ground
of quite a scrap, Monday night, in the
which two former natives of the Czar’s
domain and a Frenchman were the par
ticipants. The Frenchman claimed that
the proceedings were not according to
Hoyle, or words to that effect, and Squire
Berry refereed the case, Tuesday morn
ing, with the result that Russia had to
put up $7.55 to make it right with Uncle
Sam. The squire is some pumpkins
when it comes to passing on such frac
tures of international law.
The final test of the new standpipe was
made on Monday. Over 95 feet of water
was pumped into the tank, which is now
perfectly water tight and as staunch as

take pride in one of the finest standpipes
in the state of Nebraska. The fire boys
were out, the same day, testing the pres
sure in their fire hose, and with satisfac
tory results. The Porter Boiler Co. of
Chicago are the builders. The remainder
of the men and their tools and apparatus
left for Chicago, Monday night.
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
THE EDUCATIONAL KALLV.
Under the genius, enterprise and en
thusiasm of our citizens, the occasion of
the official visit of State and Deputy Su
perintendents, Mr. and Mrs. A.K.Goudy,
to our city schools, last Friday, naturally
and gracefully expanded to the gratify
ing proportions and happy features of an
educational rally for southwestern Neb
raska, and its successful and felicitous
issue is a source of satisfaction to each
and all concerned.
In addition to visiting the McCook
public schools, it was in the State Super
intendent’s purpose to have a district con
vention of the twelve county superinten
dents of Chase, Dundy,Franklin,Furnas,
Frontier, Gosper, Harlan, Hitchcock,
Hayes, Kearney, Phelps and Red Willow.
Of the number invited the following re
sponded and participated in the first
convention of the kind ever held in the
state: David Ogilvie of Chase,W.G.Price
of Dundy, N. H. Jones of Frontier, S. B.
Yeoman of Gosper, J. T. Lamson of Har
lan, W. A. Garrett of Phelps, J. H. Bays
ton of Red Willow. Also Mrs. Matie T.
VanPetten, the superintendent-elect of
With these the state superintendent
and deputy held a very profitable busi
ness session in the high school, Friday
In the afternoon the state, deputy and
county superintendents, together with
members of the city board of education
and the city council, visited the several
school buildings of the city, in each of
which short and appropriate addresses
were made, and observations and notes
taken of the work of the different grades.
It is perhaps needless to state that all
were surprised, nay delighted, with the
methods and government and progress
being made in our schools.
After the completion of the visit to the
schools the visiting educators were wait
ed upon by the mayor and a committee
of citizens and were driven in carriages
over the city. The water works, electric
light plant and extensive R.R.shops were
inspected, and the A. O. U. VV. temple
and other prominent buildings visited,
everything being made as comfortable
and interesting as possible for the guests,
who carry away with them a very flatter
ing estimate of McCook enterprise and
The mass educational meeting in the
opera in the evening crowded the hall to
overflowing. State Superintendent A. K.
Goudy delivered the principal address of
the evening. It was along practical, busi
ness lines of state educational matters—
some startling comparative figures being
given,—and closing with a glowing trib
ute to the unexcelled excellence of the
McCook schools, to the ability of her city
superintendent, the enterprise of her cit
izens and their generous hospitality.
Brief addresses were also made by Mrs.
Goudy, Supt. Bayston and Prof. Valen
tine and in felicitous phrase. After music
by the A.O U.W. band the meeting came
to a close. Dr. A. P. Welles delivered a
very neat welcoming address. Mayor
Brewer was chairman of the occasion.
But the program was brought to a de
lightful termination in the reception by
the 12th grade to the visitors and a score
or more of invited guests of the city, in
the high school building. Here an elab
orate and elegant spread was made, in
a very tasteful and clever manner, bring
ing joy to the hearts of those entertained
and reflecting much credit upon the mem
bers of the class of ’94. In addition the
high school orchestra rendered some of
their choicest music, and the lantern ad
ded its welcome mite of entertainment.
Besides short remarks were made by
Supt. Goudy and Prof. Valentine in their
The affair was unprecedented in the
history of the Republican valley and was
carried out in McCook’s characteristic
and hospitable style, and great credit is
due all persons concerned.
The high school will indulge in a jubi
lee celebration from 1:30 to 2:30, this
: afternoon, in celebration of the attend
ance having reached the 100 mark. There
■will be recitations, music etc., and an
interesting time may be expected. The
occasion is an auspicious one for the Mc
Cook high school.
The McCook schools, State Supt. A.K.
Goudy thinks, has the largest per cent,
of enrollment in actual attendance of any
schools in the state. For November it
was a fraction over 89 per cent. And
November was not a good month, either.
The membersof the nth grade enjoyed
a half day holiday,Wednesday afternoon,
on account of having no cases of absence
in the grade during the month. A skating
party on the driftwood was the result,
and a splendid time, too.
Hastings’ total enrollment is 1,477. In
their high school they have an enroll
ment of 107. How does this compare with
McCook’s enrollment of over 700 and 104
in her high school?
The heating apparatus in the east ward
has had to get down to business, some
days of this week. One or two of the
rooms haven’t been any too warm,either.
The usefulness of the press has been
impaired, if its power cannot be said to
be entirely destroyed.
The 1 ith grade will have the program
at lantern class, to-night.
Christmas examinations next week.

Old Age and Neglect.
Timothy Hannan, senior, an aged and
infirm resident of Valley Grange prec.,
was found dead in his bed, Monday eve
ning, by members of Eugene Dunham’s
family who had called at thfe Hannan
place to deliver some bread, as was their
custom every few days, Mrs. Hannan be
ing too feeble to bake. It is thought that
the old man had been dead since the
night previous, when discovered, ba hav
ing passed away without the aged part
ner of his joys and sorrows knowing of
it. She is absolutely helpless and was
lying on the floor, without a spark of fire
in the house, which is described as being
squalid and filthy in the extreme. Mrs.
Hannan was removed from these sur
roundings to the home of her son of this
city, soon after the arrival of the news in
McCook. Funeral services were conduct
ed in St. Patrick’s church,Tuesday after
noon, by Father Brinker of Wray, Colo.,
interment being made in the parish cem
etery. Death was caused by old age and
was doubtless hastened by neglect, as
neither of the old people have been able
to care for themselves for a long time.
It is a sad commentary indeed that any
one should die under such circumstances
in this land.
