A Joke on Rosewater.
, i Last week , every Dane and Norwegian
' in the , vicinity of Quick postoffice , in
Frontier county , received a paper printed
in Swede. There was no name or heading -
ing on the sheet , and no date or ought
else to signify its origin. But the sheet
contained two of Rosewater's speeches
and a few small items of a political sort.
But the joke of the whole matter is that
there is only one Swede in the whole
t neighborhood who could read the paper ,
and its contents were a blank to the i
Danes and Norwegians who , almost without -
, out exception , are unable to read Swed-

If THE TRIBUNE is not mistaken there
is quite a severe penalty on our statute
books against selling tobacco in any
Corm to minors. But the number of
school lads , large and small , to be seen
every day going to and from school with
cigars and cigarettes in their mouths
would indicate that the law is not being
observed to any alarming extent , as it
certainly should- .
Mr. and Mrs. C. T. Beggs had the misfortune -
fortune to lose their infant sou Robert ,
aged L7 months , last night , from a relapse -
lapse of cholera infantun. The little
one has been ill ever since July , when
its life was despaired of from a severe
attack of the above malady. , The bereaved -
reaved parents have the deep and tender
sympathy of all in their sorrow. The
funeral will be held from the residence
tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock.
Friends are invited.
A very interesting and profitable hour
was spent with the Red Willow Christian
Endeavorers at their temperance meeting -
ing last Sunday afternoon by quite a
number of the McCook Endeavorers.
The programme was carried out as arranged -
ranged with the exception of the paper
by Howard Finity , who was unable to
be present. All who attended will testify -
tify to the encouragement given and the
uplift experienced by the discussions ,
and their zeal was stirred to renewed
activities against the saloon power.

Election Day in McCook.
Tuesday's election was without striking -
ing or startling incident. There was a
surprisingly large vote cast , but everything -
thing passed off smoothly and quietly ,
although every effort was made by the
republicans especially to get out every
vote , and the result shows an unprecedented -
dented majority for the republican
ticket : Majors received the highest
majority , 277 ; Rathbun , 270 ; Andrews ,
231 ; Lamborn , 205 ; Berry , 92 ; Keyes , 8r.
That a lively and deep interest was
felt in the election was manifested -
ed in the large crowds that made their
headquarters at the city hall and at
other points in the city , and there was
considerable enthusiasm displayed when
the result in the precinct became known ,
Well ! WELL ! ! ' WELL ! ! !
Excuse us while we vocalize.
As has been stated this is a republican
The Czar is dead-but Little Russia
Majors had votes in McCook to throw
at the birds.
McCook'svote was surprisingly large
for a dry year.
The country has doubtless been saved
by a large majority.
Rathbun's majority is placed safely at
300 for state senator.
Tuesday was a sad sad day for Red
fi'illow county populists.
Politically speaking , Lamborn is some-
whatof a hummer himself.
Bee , republican , will represent Furnas
county , vice Stevens , populist.
The "little giant of the fifth" made a
magnificent race in Red Willow county.
Referring to McCook's republicanism ,
it's of a very prolific and enthusiastic
kind , anyhow.
McBride , populist , carries the representative -
sentative district formed by Frontier and
McCook stayed by Messrs. Lamborn
and Keyes.like a major. That's a winning -
ning way we have.
Lamborn run like a frightened hare in
McCook , and it much more thart made
up far the little surprise lie received at
Andrews has 1,370 majority with three
counties to hear from. His official majority -
jority will be between ten and twelve
Cole , republican , is elected in the
representative district composed of the
counties of Hitchcock , Hayes , Dundy
The populists only elected three representatives -
resentatives in Southwestern Nebraska ,
McBride , Soderman of Phelps and the
representative from Harlan county.
Red Willow county went straight republican -
publican by fine majorities , save Meserve
-whose splendid conduct of the treas-
urer's office the past few months carried
him through by IS2 majority.
H. H. Easterday , the ever genial and
clever colonel , will assess your diamonds
and plate , next spring. The other fellow
wasn't iu it. He wasn't even on the
ticket. And the colonel had everything
his own way.
Jake Burnett has , or rather has had ,
two magpies at his lunch counter at the
depot. He only has one bird now. The
birds belonged to the republican and
democratic faiths respectively- The
democratic magpie was a very sensitive
bird , according to Jake's account , and
when the wires became hot with the
lurid accounts of the irresistible republican -
lican landslide , Tuesday evening , why
that bird deliberately hung itself.

Tuberculosis in cows is epidemic in
