C. M. Noble Fails.
It was a matter of general regret with
the people of our city , Monday , when it
became known that C. M. Noble had
turned over his grocery stock to his cred-
itors. Continued hard times and multiplied -
plied failures proved too strong a combination -
nation and the inevitable came about
noon Monday , when the keys were turned -
ed over to the Citizens bank , the prieici-
pal creditor. Among the other local
creditors are A. D. Johnson $25o , Rooney
& McAdams $ t5o. The Citizens bank
claim is about $1,200. These are secured
by mortgages. There are a few foreign ,
unsecured claims which will raise the
liabilities to about $2ooo. The stock , it
is thought , will invoice $ t,500 , and there
are book accounts to the amount of about
$500 , 50 it is hoped that the loss to creditors -
itors will not be large. This is the first
failure in McCook in years and is deeply
deplored ; the more so because Mr.Noble
is one of our oldest merchants and most
highly esteemed citizens.

this time the name of Mr. Benson was
withdrawn at his request ; and on motion

clamation. The next judge of the Fourteenth -
teenth district then made a speech o f
acceptance which was heartily approved
by the delegates.

the pleasure of hearing Congressman W ,
E. Andrews deliver a speech. He gav e
a number of pregnant reasons why th e
Republican idea is correct and ought and
must prevail. He covered as fully a s
possible in a limited time the question s
of revenue , protection and currency
proving true and right the Republica n
position on them all in the past , an a
holding forth the possibilities of futur e
prosperity to the country when the G.0

The old soldiers felt a little aggrieved
but they will all be in line for Norris.
Chairman Abbott expressed the conviction -
viction that the time was past for monkey
