Postmaster Troth measures shorts just
as artistically as he licks stamps.
It was the heaviest snow since Febru

That set of pretty Haviland dishes was
raffled off at W. M. Anderson’s, Saturday
night last. The groceryman held the
lucky, winning ticket himself.

You can’t improve your business by
taking down your sign every time an
unfavorable wind blows. The time to
stimulate business is during periods of
depression. A newspaper advertisement
is a sign.
The Culbertson Era states that “there
is some talk of arranging a meeting of
the county commissioners of this and Red
Willow counties to arrange for building
a bridge across the Republican river on
the county line.’’

to make their home, close of the week.
Everybody who leaves Nebraska comes
back again; no man can stay away .unless
he is in a foreign penitentiary; the state
has a fascination possessed by no other,
and the longer you live in it,the stronger
becomes the hold upon you. The worst
thing about dying is the fact that your
spirit has to leave Nebraska, although
your remains may be interred in the be
loved soil.—Walt Mason.
With its characteristic enterprise the
Independent has just made the discovery
that Postmaster Troth is a possible can

full-blown whiskers on it, the Independ

requirements. As a “job lot” it has no
While there is doubtless water enough
in the Meeker ditch for all demands for
irrigating purposes, and to make a nice
water power besides, yet it is The Trib
une’s opinion that the most profitable
use that can be made of the water for the
present is in the line of irrigation. Push
the irrigation idea to practical success
and to as general use as possible. Let

Governor Crounse has been petitioned
to call an extra session of the legislature
to take steps toward the suppression of
the Russian thistle, which is assuming
the proportions of a nuisance in the state.
It is scarcely probable, however, that the
governor will do as requested. It would
be one thing to call the scions together,
but it would be another to make them go
forth and root up the thistles. The best
thing for the farmers to do is to sail in
and annihilate the pest without execu
Negotiations were closed, Saturday,
whereby H. H. Troth became proprietor
of the Doan and Thompson flour and
feed establishments, and on Monday Mr.
Troth assumed the management of the
consolidated business, at the old stand of
the McCook Commission Co., where in
future the business will be conducted,
the stock from the Thompson store hav
ing been moved to the present stand,this
week. Mr. Doan will continue the mill
and elevator business, and Mr.Thompson
the oil business. Howe Smith will assist
the new management, which continues
the name of the McCook Commission
It seems to The Tribune that the
idea of the purchase of a high-priced
grader by the city authorities at this time
particularly is a piece of preposterous ex
travagance. No doubt but that the grader
is a thoroughly good machine, but this
city cannot afford to put a thousand dol
lars into a grader, which in all human
probabilities would stand idle more than
eleven months of the year. Such work as
this city has the money to do on her
streets and the roads leading into the
city can be done by the implements she
now has at command. The money that
such a machine would cost can certainly
be expended to better advantage on the
streets and roads. The city authorities
should consider the matter earnestly and
carefully before entering into a contract
for the purchase of an expensive grader
for which they have little or no use. The
burdens now borne by the tax-payers are
crushing. Why needlessly add more?

A Michigan man has worked out a new
scheme for sending money safely through
the mails, and it is under consideration
by the postoffice authorities. His plan
is to issue ‘‘post cheques" to take the
place of fractional currency. They are
to be much like the old shin-plasters and
are to circulate among the people gener
ally like any other money so long as the
lines on their faces are left blank. When
one wishes to send a small sum any dist
ance he does not bother to get a money
order, but takes one of these cheques of
the right denomination out of his pocket,
writes on its face the name of the man to
whom he wishes to send the money, and
the value of the cheque is from that mo
ment destroyed for all persons except the
one to whom it is addressed. These
cheques are claimed to be as safe as bank
drafts. No charge is to be made for their
use. The government will be compensa
ted for the cost of the system, it is
thought, by an increased postal business
and by the fact that the cheques will be
in a small way a loan drawing no inter
est. If the system is as safe and effective
as is claimed it will probably be adopted.
Postal notes are unsatisfactory, money
orders involve too much red tape, and it
is not considered prudent to send silver
or currency through the mails. The ‘‘post
cheque" may fill a long and keenly felt
An exchange sounds warning to the
farmer as follows: If any farmer in this
section has procured samples of grain
from the world’s fair agricultural build
ing he will do well to burn it forthwith.
It has been found that the whole exhibit
has been attacked by the weevil, a pest
whose larva is a worm that burrows into
the grain, and has done enormous dam
age to the crops in Southwestern Russia
and in India, whence, doubtless, it was
brought to the world’s fair. It is stated
that thousands of samples of grain have
been carried from the agricultural build
ing; and there is presumably not a cor
ner of the United States where the pest
has not been carried.
The annual meeting of stock-holders
of the McCook cooperative building and
savings association was held in the city
hall on Monday evening. As there was
not a majority of the stock represented,
the old directors will hold over during
the ensuing year. The vacancies made
by the withdrawals of C. H. Boyle and
L. W. McConnell were filled by the elec
tion of J. E. Kelley and J. F. Ganschow,
who together with T. B. Cambell, Frank
Harris, F. M. Kimmell, E. E. Lowman,
U. J. Warren, E. C. Ballew and J. A.Wil
cox now compose the board, which will
meet on coming Monday evening to reor
ganize for the coming year.
The bond of the county treasurer in the
further sum of $40,000 was accepted by
the county commissioners at their meet
ing on the 9th. The total bond of Red
Willow county’s treasurer is now $80,000,
or twice the amount of the money he is
supposed to have on hand at any time,
as provided by law.

Really, it’s the unexpected thing that
happens. For instance, Colonel Mitchell
of the Indianola Courier stated in last
week’s issue of that indispensable home
comfort that “Attorney Smith laid an
egg on our table.” Now The Tribune
has always regarded Sam as an all-around
fellow; but when it comes to laying an
egg 6^ by 7inches in dimensions,right
on Colonel Mitchell’s sanctum table,too,
among the Colonel’s leaders and ethics,
—well, it’s a mite difficult to imagine
that Sam would or could do such an un
dignified thing. But if Colonel Mitchell
insists upon the soft impeachment, why
it goes. Is it a hen on the Colonel or on
Well, excuse our smiles. But we really
had no idea that there are so many fish
in McCook that can be caught without
hooks—only bait. The information crept
into these headquarters, this morning,
that a patent medicine fakir and a mas
ter of slight-of-hand pulled a hundred
dollars out of the willing pockets of our
people, last night, through one of the
gauziest tricks known for catching the
wide-open mouthed suckers. Dearly be
loved travelers through this vale of tears
has it not again and once more been told
you not to buck against the other fellow’s
game So why will you bite so hungrily
every time the opportunity is afforded?
The taxpayers>of the city of McCook
should take an active and concerted in
terest in the coming spring election. In
the issue are involved a number of things
that should interest all thoughtful men,
especially taxpaying citizens. Firstly,
the salaries paid are too high by half. In
fact in view of the onerous taxes now
levied in this city the salaries should be
merely nominal. There are cities in this
state in which the mayor and councilmen
donate their services, and there ought to
be men enough in this city to do as well.
At any rate the salaries must be reduced
at least one-half. Secondly, all the
money received from saloon licenses and
from fines of every sort should go where
the law of this state says they must go—
into the public school treasury. The
schools need this money. The money
belongs to the schools, and it is an un
lawful evasion to divert the revenue or
any portion of it to other purposes. The
taxpayers should make it their patriotic
duty to see that this money finds its way
to the lawful source. Thirdly, men should
be chosen who will restrain at least the
gambling and social evils,impartially and
legally, to the end that the fines may be
imposed and collected and applied with
due respect to law. That special privil
eges be given to none—nor indulgences
sold. That the back door Sunday liquor
traffic be stopped; and other reasonable,
seemly and liberal reforms be instituted,
and the fair name of our city be rescued
so far as possible from the shame into
which it has fallen. Reputable citizens
of all creeds and conditions should rally
to the support of an administration that
will bring about a better condition of
things for our city, which is just now
suffering from too much Crokerism.
Monday was Lincoln’s birthday, and
the event was appropriately commemor
ated by the schools. Among other things
Emerson's memorial address was read.
The teachers’ institute for Red Wil
low county will be held in McCook. It
will begin July 9th and continue four
weeks. A prospectus will be sent out
soon to all the teachers, giving a de
tailed plan of the work. A four weeks
institute will give all an opportunity to
prepare for better work in the school
room. J. H. Bayston,

A Comparison—For a number of years
Webster county has been indulging in
what is known as the supervisor’s system.
We have been handed the following fig
ures in comparison of the two systems of
county government, viz: supervisors sys
tem and that of the commissioners sys
tem. However, we only show the annual
expense of the last year of the commis
sioner system, which is a fair average.
1885. Commissioner’s expenses, $ 292 80
1886. Supervisior’s salaries, 1,002 50
1887. “ “ 1,319 15
1888. “ “ 1,525 90
1889. “ “ 1,099 95
For the four years above the supervis
ors drew $2 per day. For the years fol
lowing the per diem has been $3.
1890. Supervisor’s salaries, $2,035 4°
1891. “ “ 1,318 05
1892. “ “ 787 50
1893. “ “ 2,112 95
Average for salaries per year 1,400 17
This far in 1894 the board has expended
in salaries $528 and it is probable the
expenses will exceed that of 1893.
The Chief gives these figures to show
the relative expenses of the two systems.
We believe that if the matter was put to
a vote that the county would return to
the commissioner system.—Red Cloud
They are interested in irrigation as far
east as Kearney. Chairman Deets of the
Buffalo County Irrigation society reports
that many farmers there will irrigate on
a small scale, the coming year, and that
a great deal of experimental work in that
line will be done. The question has be
come the subject of debate in the rural
literary societies of that county, and the
matter is being earnestly agitated by all.
It is admitted by none that Buffalo coun
ty is arid, but those conversant with the
practical effects of irrigation claim that
in a year of abundant rainfall the yield
of many crops can be doubled by judic
iously irrigating the fields.
