FOURTEENTH . Y EAR. McCOUK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA FRIDAY EVENING OCTOBER 25 , 1895. NUMBER 23. ;
Waves of Memory.
Tb e papers recently gave such graphic
accounts of the Re-Union at Chattanooga -
nooga , that the years , as dissolving
views , roll back to those days , when the
participants on this late occasion , then
x met in warfare ; when vacant ti places were
in almost every Louie ; ' when anxiety
wore on those left ; when grass grew in
the streets ; when on every side the singing -
ing of ' 'Annie Laurie" with the plain.
tive strains of "Lorena" alternated with
the inure ahrring notes of "Red , White
and Blue" and "Rally Round the Flag" .
Often and often does memory go back
' , and incidents , both amusing and pathetic
ic Present themselves. At that time all
- the girls were hero worshipers , and the
hero , wore the Army blue-some ; with
shoulder straps , some without. On one
occasion , tliere was a little merry making
and aniong the invited guestswere some
of the 16th KY. Init. , part of which was
in camp near town. The beautifulaccom-
" plished and aristocratic daughter of the
Col , was gracious to a young Lieut. of her
father's command and this officer was
her escort to the table , where he mime-
. diately rushed upon the.delicacies , helping -
ing himself and eating with gusto , leaving -
ing the lady unattended. After waiting
until every one was enjoying the repast ,
she turned saying sharply , "Lieutenant
S - , why do you treat me in this manner -
ner ? ' Is it from rudeness or ignorance" ?
He seemed surprised , then replied ,
that "he was not used to waiting on
ladiesand didn't know how ; that if she
would tell Brut , lie would do as she
told him" . In remarking upon it afterwards -
terwards to his comrades who were joking -
ing him , he said he had never been
among refined people , that lie was only
an hostler at his home ! Caste and class
distinctions were thrown aside in the
common interestof , love of country.
All were not Unionists , however , and
among those who sympathized with
the South , was a young teacher of the
Pulalic School , who with four others ,
sought to get beyond the lines and enter -
ter the Confederate Army. They were
r captured before this could be done. At
that time S. S. Burbridge had some kind
of command which I cannot , just now ,
recall-and ; he found time to turn from
profitable speculations , to pay attention -
tention to outrages and - depredations -
tions , committed by guerrillas and
other lawless characters Old man
Harper was murdered , some thought by
one near to him-others ; said guerrillas.
Burbridge was pleased to adopt retaliatory -
tory measuresand determinded tointim-
idate by the execution of rebel prisoners.
Lots were cast ; Tom Hunt drew a number -
ber and it was publicly talked about ,
, that another Mason Co. boy was
among the doomed , but wealthy rela-
i ' tives appealed to the venality of the
zealous and patriotic General and the
victim was changed. In the cemetery
at MidwayWbodford Co. , Ky. , is amon-
umentwith this inscription , giving the
names of four of the executed , "Shot
by'order ' of Gen. Burbridge , in retalia-
tion" . It was a sad , sad day , when the
riddled body of Tom Hunt was brought
home for burial and the most enthusiastic -
tic Unionistscondemned this act of Bur-
bridge. Henry T. Stanton , Kentucky's
poet , writes thus in 1865 :
' 'Though the sins of all the nation in their
multitude are g reat ,
There are crimes as black and cruel in the
' records of our State-
There are those who did her murder in the
guise of right and law ;
I There's the blood of Hunt upon her , of Cor-
. bin and McGraw ;
- And there's such a cry of sorrow from grave
i - of bleeding Long ,
As should pale the check of hatred in its
i memory of wrong.
God forgive us all our errors ! God forgive us
all our crimes !
We have lived in sin and darkness-let us
, hope for better times.
One cold , dismal Fa11 day , in passing
through the hall of a neighbor , I met a
tall stranger , who seemed to be strug-
gllug with emotion. I rushed into my
I triend's room , exclaiming , " 0 , who is
that handsome soldier" ? "That is Jim
Andrews , Lizzie's sweetheart. He is off
to the front and came to tell her
good by" . Miss Lizzie .was immediately -
ly invested with a halo of romance ,
for she had a soldier lover , and
he was off to the war ! Miss Lizzie was
a transient , at that time on a long visit.
She belonged to the middle class , "had
a means" , and though old-fashioned , her
garb was of richest material. Somewhat
past early youth , her glossy black hair
and smooth cheeks were the envy of
younger maidens ; so , too , was the solid
1 gold watch-gold filled were then Un-
known-the flue Irish linen wearing ap-
parel-the heavy "watered silk"-etc.
Time dragged heavily to the women of
that day-waiting-waiting for tidings.
At last-how long I have no means 'of
ascertaining-the Louisville Journal
gave the details of a daring raid , which ,
if successful , would have been of mo-
mentousimportance but-it wasa fajlure.
Soon , rumors spread the Raider , Andrews -
drews , was Miss Lizzie's lover , and whispers -
pers grew in regard to his fate. Her
uncle came to ask for the , paper so she
could see it-and that was all she ever
knew. The strain was great ; her power
of endurance greater. We who watched
saw the corners of her mouth droop
more and more-the ; sad' eyes grew
larger and sadder and at last she went
.4 home to die of a broken heart. Some
years back , the Century Magazine pub-
article- Chase After
- lisped the - a
Locomotive" , giving particulars of this
raid and Pettinger , one of the raiders
who escaped , gives "A Unique Story of
the War" . In reading these , behind it
all , there appears the beseeching brown
eyes ofthesweetheart ofthisbravedaring
man. In the National Park so recently
dedicated at Chickamauga , is a monument -
ment erected to Jas. Andrews , whom all
men delight to honor-so I give this
tribute of respect to her , whom he loved ,
'and who lies in an obscure burial ground
in Old Kentucky.

On Friday of last week a game of football -
ball came off on the school grounds , be.
tween the school club and a picked-up
eleven from among the railroad boys.
Only the first half was played , darkness -
ness putting a stop to the game. The
score was 12 to o in favor of the school
The interest taken in the Reading
class by its members , is still as great as
ever , and in spite of Supt. Valentine's
prediction that a large percentage of the
members would drop out on account of
the amount of Bard work to be done , the
attendance is the same as when the class
Monday was Library day , a day set
apart on the 21st of October , each year.
As the best way to observe it Supt.
Valentine proposed that each , and every -
ery pupil make a donation of one book
to the school library. In response to
'his appeal the library was added to by
a number of volumes.
The ninth grade are learning vertical
writing and as a result some excellent-
specimens of that system have been
done. It is hoped the Spencerian system -
tem will be dropped anti the vertical
system adopted by the schools , it being
clearly demonstrated that this system
of writing is the more legible of the two.
A. business meeting was held at the
regular meeting of the Wednesday Evening -
ening club , this week , and it was decided -
ed that the club would be abolished ,
and a new one was organized as follows :
One pupil was elected from each of the
four grades of the high school , and the
four so elected are to choose a fifth.
The following were elected : Erwin
Hopt , 12th grade ; Ernest Cordeal , IIth
grade ; Frank Cullen , Loth grade ; Judd
Kay , 9th grade. They will have absolute -
lute power and can compel obedience ,
expel a member , and the program will
be in their hands.

From the veracious newspaper statements -
ments one is forced to the conclusion
that each and every town in the valley
is paying the highest price for grain.
Tle fact is , perhaps , that none of them
are paying any more than enough to
draw the product to their respective
markets. Of such is the kingdom of
On last Saturday a week , A. B. Davis ,
a former resident of our city , .died in
Missouri. The deceased was well known
here. He was the father of Mrs. James
Patterson of South McCook. He drove
the city sprinkler for two years. Mrs.
Patterson's many friends sympathize
with her in this sorrow. She but. a few
weeks since returned home from visiting
her father in Missouri.
Repairs on the McCook roller mill ,
E. H. Doan informs us , will likely be
completed by next week. The work is
now about completed , and the mill only
needs certain parts of the machinery ordered -
dered in the east to be ready-to resume.
We understand that some of the machinery -
inery damaged has been replaced by
finer and more expensive machinery ,
and that the mill will be better equipped
than ever before to do first class work
in their line.

A Sad Accident.
John Lewis and family left North Valley -
ley precinct on September 21st , and
Oscar Rittenburg has received a letter
stating that on October 3d , when near
Hiawatha , Kansas , Jessie , the oldest son ,
was about half a mile ahead of the others
and when they overtook the team they
found him lying with his head in the
feed box and considerable blood in the
box. He was unconscious and his foot
and ankle were badly bruised by the
wheel. After some time they discovered
that a bullet had entered his nostril and
passed toward the back of his head. He
lived until three o'clock the next morning -
ing bdt was unconscious all the time.
There was a rifle in the wagon but no
one knows how the accident occurred.
Jessie was about twenty years old and
was highly esteemed by those who knew
A Divided Community.
One thing above all others that fm
pressed Supt. Phelan on his recent visit
to our city was the discord and division
so evident among the people of McCook
and plainly chargeable to the A. P. A.
It was a source of regret to him , as it is
to many of our people , that this secret
order should have been organized liere.
That this once harmonious community
should now be retarded and kept in continual -
tinual turmoil by this order. Concerted
action and come
from a community see divided and em-
bittered. Unity and peace and progress
and prosperity are worth more to Mc-
Cook than such an organization. Let
us return to peace.
Fatally Injured ,
George Fowler's son , aged about 12
years , was fatally injured , last Pridayon
the farm in Danbury precinct. The boy
was riding on the running gears of the
farm wagon. In driving over a rut , he
was thrown from the wagon , receiving
internal injuries which caused his death
about thirty hours afterwards.
The deceased was a brother of James
H. Fowler , a teacher in the McCook
public schools , who with the family have
the deep and heartfelt sympathy of many
friends and neighbors in this tragic and
An A. P , A. lodge was organized in
this city , Monday evening. Just what
purpose } t may serve in a small community -
nity like this we do not know , but it
would seem that its mission were confined -
fined more to the larger cities of the
country rather than the smaller ones.
Sentiment is bound to be divided in regard -
gard to it and it would seem that we have
had enough division here the past few
years-to say nothing of adversity-with
out calling in outside or foreign influences -
ences to create further disseusions.-Red

been looking over the Republican valley

Too Much Johnson.
The university second eleven arrived
from Hastings , Saturday morning. They
were defeated , Friday afternoon , by the
Hastings V. M. C. A. football team by a
score of 14 to 0. This fact , however ,
appeared to concern their feelings butlit-
tle. They admitted that they would have
liked to have won the game , that is what
they went out for , but they had played
a good game from a scientific football
standpoint and the score was the direct
rendt of"sou much Johnson. "
Their story runs this way : When the
game opened Hastings was playing the
big man , Johnson , in the center. That
was a safe place for hint to be , for by
the time he had snapped the ball a Nebraska -
braska end or half would be on the run-
ner. For fully twenty-five minutes Nebraska -
braska held Hastings in their own territory -
tory and at one time carried the ball
over the goal line. This was the result
of a fumble by Hastings and the umpire
ruled that the ball had not been put in
play , the confession of the Hastings men
to the contrarynotwithstanding. When
there was but about five minutes more
of the first half to play , Broulette , Ilast-
ings' left half , was disabled and Johnson -
son was taken from center to play in his
place. This was the turning point in
the game , and from then on the ball was
almost continually in Nebraska's terri-
When Nebraska had the ball , good
gains were made , for Hastings was weak
in defensive playing. When Hastings
had the ball gains were made because
Nebraska could not'stop Johnson. With
his two hundred or more pounds of bone
and muscle he plowed through Nebras-
ka's men like a cylinder snow plow in a
twelve-foot drift. The tackles flew in
every direction till someone luckier than
the rest got a grip and pulled the giant
to the earth.
The game was undoubetdly won by
weight. The Hastings men played a
very slow , monotonous game and made
advances at their leisure. They held
the ball most of the time and had things
their own way. A swift game would
have been favorable to the Nebraska
Bob Burdett's Advice to Young Men
Remember , my son , you have to work.
Whether you handle a pick or a pen , a
wheelbarrow or a set of dishes , digging
ditches or editing a paper , ringing an
apction bell or writing funny things , you
must work. Don't be afraid of killing
yourself with over work. It is beyond
your power to do that on the sunny side
thirty. They die , sometimes , but it is
because they quit work at 6 p , ni , and
don't get home until 2 a , m. It's the
interval that kills , my son. There are
young men who do not work , but the
world is not proud of them. It does not
know their names even : it simply speaks
of them as "Old So-and So's boys" . No.
body cares for them : the great busy
world don't know they are here. The
busier you are the less harm you will be
apt to get into , the sweeter will be your

Farmers Want to Emigrate.
P. L. Dodge and J. B. Waddington returned -
turned , last Saturday , from Nebraska ,
where they went to look at land. They
are very enthusiastic over the producing
qualities of the soil in Red Willow coun-
ty. Just before returning , they gathered
a number of specimens from the crops
as they lay in the field waiting to be har-
vested. They are now on exhibition at
the office of P. L. Dodge. One of the
sugar beets measured eighteen inches in
length , and weighed eight pounds. A
table beet measured twenty-two and a
half inches in circumference , and weighed -
ed ten pounds , and some Westerfield and
Bermuda onions , measuring fifteen and
sixteen inches in circumference ; also immense -
mense cornpotatoes and other products ,
bunches of the second and third crops
of alfalfa , taken from fields that have
averaged nine tons to the acre. A good
many of our farmers would like to sell
out and emigrate.-Rosemond cor , Yana

When that paper is run on strictly cash-
