It was decided not to place a county
ticket in the field. This was doubtless
done to prove to an unfriendly world
that the "straights" do not live by pie
alone. A few delegates favored nominating -
nating a ticket.
s : The following gentlemen were elected
delegates to the state convention : J. W.
Hupp , E. C. Ballew and James Harris.
The delegates to the judicial convention -

Chairman Harris here took occasion
to review the history of Red Willow
county Democracy , picturing its remarkable -
markable victories in the past and holding -
ing out tempting and highly imaginative
inducements for future glory. He admitted -
mitted that there were only a few of
them left-that is of the real , genuine ,
blown-in-the-bottle brand of
- - - Democracy ;
but that those left were like Gideon's
band of old , chosen of the Lord , and can
_ _ 1J t "lap like a dog" . The speaker explained
that the original might be properly translated -
lated to mean whiskey or water to suit
the fancy , and that perhaps the word
- - water mightJjust as well be eliminated
from to the text as it had been from the
fact. The speaker deified Groverr and
canonized J. Sterling in a most felicitously -
tously unrecognizable manner , in a burst
of quite masterly eloquence and piquant
wit. After which the speaker retired to
the chair amid a perfect Niagara of applause -
plause , covering his face with his hands
to hide his blushes. The convention
The convention will go thundering
" down the corridors of time as a model
of harmony , thus challenging the admiration -
miration of generations unborn.
Thus was the Democratic party of Red
Willowcounty born again some.

into his confidence , this week , and divulged -

this year. And that they will likely buy
some stock cattle and do considerable
feeding during the fall and winter. They
insist upon doing a little business on the
Hatfield ranch right along , every year.
We understand that there was a meeting -
ing held in the city hall , Wednesday
evening , in which the committee recently -
cently selected at a meeting held in the
hall of Council lee , after adjournment of
lodge , were discharged ; and that a , motion -
tion was carried to the effect that delegates -
gates from the several voting precincts
of the city be selected at meetings of the
voters of the precincts in such manner
as the voters thereof may elect 'that

Between the hours of three and four
o'clock on Tuesday morning , one of
James H. Cain's residences in East Mc-
Cook was entirely consumed by fire.
The fire evidently originated from the
cooking stove , from what we can learn.
The house was insured for $4oo. Henry
Jeffries occupied the premises , and he
only succeeded in saving a portion of his
household goods. As the water service
does not extend into that addition , the
fire department was not called out for
duty ; and with the facilities at hand little -
tle could be done to save the house , although -
though quitea numberof people gathered
notwithstanding the early hour.
The editor of the Benton , Ill. , Standard
gives the following unique description of

bachelor and he got off many impertinent -

women's bibles will treat Paul as he
deserves. The new woman intends to
wear pants and hatch her offspring in an
incubator. She will give milk out of a bottle -
tle with a Jersey label on it. She will lecture - 1
ture and ride astride and never marry un
less she wants to. She will have her
own bible and fight man until he is extinct -
tinct , and when the world comes to an
end and Gabriel comes to toot his final
horn he will only find a lot of red-headed
old maids riding on bicycles through
the lonely world , with no berries in the
patch , no fruit on the trees , no babies
in the cradle , and the man in the moon
a howling maniac.

The free silver and gold bug factions
of the demoralized Democracy of the
Fourteenth judicial district of Nebraska
each held conventions in this city on
Wednesday evening , The free silver fellows -
lows were first on the battle field. The
hour named in the call was 6:30 : p. m. ,
and shortly before 7 o'clock Delegates
A J.Rittenhouse of McCook , L.W.Smith ,
T. F. Welborn , Thomas Duncan , Dennis
j. : Fitzgerald of Indianola repaired to the
appointed place-tile city hall-and at
once organized for business , naming a
candidate and transacting the customary
business. [ See verbatim copy of the
report of this convention given by the
"McCook , Nebraska , September 4th ,
1895. Pursuant to call for Democratic
judicial convention for the. Fourteenth
judicial district , the Democrats met in
delegate convention at the city hall in
the city of McCook on the 4th day of
September , 1895 , at 6:30 : p , m. , and on
motion D. J. Fitzgerald was chosen temporary -

Just about the time this convention
was about to adjourn and retire on their
rapidly and easily acquired honors , the
napping and indignant gold bug faction
rushed into the hail , and then ensued an
exciting , hot and noisy scene , with J. W.
Kelley , editor of "For Revenue Only" ,
of Beaver City , in the leading role. Mr.
Kelley has a hard earned local reputation
as a bruiser ; lie removed lais coat , played
a vigorous , if not musical , tune on the
table , worked his vocal organs with
marvelous celerity and power , and indicated -
cated an over-mastering disposition to
annihilate somebody. Judge Rittenhouse
was not born rn the woods to be thrown
into a spasm by the hooting of an owl ,
and he promptly informed "For Revenue
Only" that he is "one of that kind of
people himself in cases of emergency
like this" , which put something of a wet
blanket on the prospect for shedding of
gore ; and after the exchange of a number
ofred hot speeches between these gentlemen -
tlemen , convention number one adjourned -
ed , and convention number two promptly -
ly organized and proceeded to business.

made by the officers of this convention. ]

The Last of Earth.
A large concourse of sympathizing
friends attended the funeral of Mrs.
Louise Kuhule , wife of the Rev. C. F.
Kuhule , at the German Methodist
church , Sunday afternoon , August 25th , _
presiding Elder L. Allinger delivered an
eloquent discourse in the German language -
guage , followed by Rev. E. L. Semans
with some appropriate remarks in Eu-
glish. The singing by the choir of the
church was exceptionally fine and im-
pressive. Rev. Cramblet , Fryberger ,
Royer , Riggs , Leas and Mueller were the
Mrs. Kuhule's sister and her husband
of Nebraska are here , and we understand
that the former will remain with the bereaved -
reaved family for some tine.
The parting scene at the church was
peculiarly solemn , and many tears of
sympathy were shed for the mourning
family and friends. Death is the lot of
all , but it is more distressing undersome
circumstances titan under others. The
blow never falls harder than when a
young wife and mother leaves-leaves
so suddenly-a husband and small cliii-
dren. But Mr. Kuhule has the consolation -
tion of the words so feelingly uttered by
Elder Allinger in his prayer , "Allein ,
dock nicht allein , bin ich" ( Alone ,
yet not alone , am I. ) He has the further
consolation , so far as that will go , that
the whole community sympathizes with
him in his bereavement.
Mrs. Kuhule was a most estimable
lady. She was highly educated and entertained -
tertained deep religious convictions.
She was a conscientious helpmeet to
her husband in his pastoral work , and
had endeared herself very much to the
church here. Her death is a loss to the
Methodist church and to the circle in
which she moved , as it is to the family
and friends.-Goshen ( Ind. ) Daily Times.

The Credit System. ;
There is a Millennium fu the financial
world that everybody would profit by r
having occur and many business men
would rejoice exceedingly to have , if it
were possible. That millennium is the
universal payment of cash by everybody.
It is far from being reached yet , therefore -
fore people ivlro do pay cusp are compelled -
pelled to pay more titan they should to
make tip for the loss incurred by those
who fail to pay at all or delay a long
period. Thus injustice is worked. Titus
men who don't pay their debts manage
to live by the exercise of a superabundance -
ance of cheek , and live more cheeply
than do those who pay cash. Thus do
nien who delay paying their debts get
work to do that they wouldn't otherwise -
wise get if the creditor could get his
money any other way. Because the
cash system is not in use everywhere and
by everybody , our titeat costs more , our
clothes cost more , our houses cost more ,
our county papers would have been
cheaper long ago , and all men would
get their just dues in a financial sense.
Money uncollected goes down in the lost
column in every business house. It
makes the grocer charge niore of every
customer to get even on what sonic ens-
touters fail to pay in six moutlis or more.
Cash paid by everybody would bring
lower prices and better satisfaction 6ell-
erally. These thoughts were not suggested -
gested by what the Industrial World
says below , 1)111 its remarks are so applicable -
plicable to the subject in hand that they
are presented. The World asks : "Why
do merchants encourage the credit system -
tem ? You answer that you don't. Yes ,
but you do. If the system were not encouraged -
couraged by the nrerchauts it would not
be in existence today. Did you 'ever
stop to think that the mercantile community
munity are the only body of ureu who
tolerate the credit system ? Let's see you
buy postage stamps , postal notes , money
orders , etc. , on credit ; try it and see
what you'll be told. Go to the theatre
and you pay money. Express companies
demand cash , and railroad tickets are
cash on delivery to the purchaser. Why
should the merchant not demand and
receive cash ? Simply because lie encourages -
courages the credit system. It may be
an impossibility to completely eradicate
the system , but strict limitation on credit
is a step oii the right road , and the evolution -
lution will be pratically a cash basics system -
tem of doing business. It is worth a
trial and should be begun at once. It
would spread like measles in a country f
school and when it does it will solve the
great problem for all time. When sifted
down it would be found that the credit
for more evil that effects the financial and
business world than all other agencies
combined. Not only this , but it fosters
extravagance-the purchase of goods r
which can be very well done without" .
