There has been too much said about the immense crops in Nebraska as a whole , when there is not a word of truth in it. It is misleading and detrimental : to the general'i-rood of our people. It is true there are some sections that have extra good'crops , but it must be - bered that a large section of the state that usually raises the largest crops has r - very little. Thus it can be easily seen - the average is cut down. The two hot weeks in September made not less than 15 or 20 per cent less on the average of the corn crop. Prom the reports of the . daily papers it would be supposed that the railroad could not get cars enough to haul the grain.-Nebraska Farmer. An Unfortunate Woman. ' ' Keller Heist of Sheridan , Wyo. , writes y > t Chief Sigwart to be on the lookout for his daughter , Mrs. Nettie Peterson of Missouri Valley , to have come ' j to this city with suicidal intent. Accord- Y ing to Heist , Mrs. Peterson has come Here with a fifteen-months-old baby , i , : sayingshe would kill herself and baby upon arrival here. She has made three attempts to kill herself , ote at Aurora , once at Grand Island , and lastly at Mc- Cook. The woman is about twenty- : . three ears old five feet five inches in : t. height and of dark complexion , Mrs , Eliza Heist ; mother of the demented woman , lives somewhere in Omaha- r. Omaha cor.

I , ' 96 ; but it seems that you have changed your views since I first subscribed for your paper , and have espoused the cause of "The Old Man on the Tiber" . I am an American and have no use for that kind of literature ; so you need not send the paper any longer. Yours truly , C. H. . Death of Mrs. Thomas Lonergan. . Tuesday afternoon , Sylvester Cordeal received a telegram from Chicago , announcing - nouncing the death at noon of that day of Mrs. Thomas Lonergan. The deceased - ceased will be remembered as the charming - ing and refined old lady who at different i times visited in our city , guest of her daughter , Mrs. F. H. Spearman , now of Omaha , who with her husband were at r Chicago at the end. Many McCook' friends will deeply sympathize with them in this great sorrow. Be More Careful- , ' r ' An officer in the fire department re- quests the publisher to urge upon the people more care in the matter of turning - ing in fire alarms. An alarm , especially at night , means the disturbing of some 35 men , and if false , has the tendency to impair the efficiency of the service by disgusting the members of the department - . : ment , who are every now and then unnecessarily - necessarily called out. The D. of H. Ball. A nice company participated in the dance held , Monday evening , in the Temple hall , by the ladies of the Degree - gree of Honor , A. 0. U.V. . , and every - one present enjoyed the occasion. The Pythian orchestra provided the music. Though not numerously attended , it . . .r was a"successful and pleasing affair. Teachers' Examination. ' County Teachers' Association ' meeting will be held in Bartley , Saturday - day , Nov. i6th,189J , the regular examination - - ' ination day , I will hold a teachers' examination - amination , Saturday , Nov. 23d , at my office in Indianola. .

Jennie Calkins , both of Valley Grange . precinct , the justice officiating. Here's long life and prosperity and happiness for the young people. - D. Guernsey is here from Salt Lake ' City on business. . . i t e t Hawksworth--Johnson. Last evening , Engineer Frank W , Hawksworth and Miss Grace A. Johnson were united in marriage by Rev. R. L. Knox. The affair was a very private one , only witnessed by the relatives of the contracting parties. The groom's parents - ents , Mr. and Mrs. D. Hawksworth of Plattsmouth , were present. Both groom and bride are well known and highly regarded in this community , which joins THE TRIBUNE in warmest congratula tions , and well wishes. The newly married - ried couple left for Plattsmouth on No. 2 , this morning , for a brief honeymoon , The District Judgeship. The District Judgesbip is still in doubt and a contest may yet result. The official - cial vote gives Welty three plurality , but the change made by an alleged unknown person on the abstract hook in clerk's office in Beaver City , gives Norris three plurality. But the end'is not yet. A telegram received here , last night , we are informed , claims the election of Norris by one plurality. Off the Slater John Kelley had a boomlet , For the auditorship of state ; But IastTuesday sealed his doomlet , And now he's off the slate. Verlie Berry is still seriously ill with an attack of typhoid fever. They have a large order of sleds and skates coming at the Postoflice Lobby. The Junior Epworth League held a successful social in the Methodist church on last evening. People that want the news subscribe for THE TRIBUNE. And they do get it -and in good form , too. The replevin suit before Squire Berry , Wednesday morning , involving some horses , was won by C. M. Noble. Rev. R. L. Knox moved up from Arapahoe - ahoe , Wednesday of this week , occupying - ing the M V. Starbuck residence. The Pythian band expect to matte a large success of their masquerade ball , about December 12th. Wait for it. First of the week , Mrs. Bager moved her millinery store into the A. 0. U. W. building , occupying the room formerly used by C. M. Noble. County teachers should observe the change of the date of County Superintendent - intendent Bayston's regular examination day from the 16th to the 23d. This week , W. G. Wilson retired from R. A. Cole's employ , and embarked in business for himself , sharing an office on Main street with C. J. Ryan. The remains of the late C. C. 11I , Rowell were disinterred on Thursday and were shipped to Mt. Ayr , Iowa , on the evening passenger , for re-interment. Our local contemporaries were shorten on county election news. .But they made up on general news , which had a more pleasing sound than the local music. This week , Mr. Edgerton retired from the management of the Union hotel and Mrs. Adams , who has been running a restaurant - taurant in the old Saylor building , assumed - sumed charge of the house. C. L. DeGroff & Co , report their special - cial sale on Monday as being the best day the Cash Bargain Store has enjoyed since they have been the proprietors of that popular place of merchaudizing. There are a number of individuals in this vicinity , who are yelling "America for Americans" most lustily , whom it would bother mightily to produce their naturalization papers. And thus the country is continuously saved. The regular annual meeting for the election of officers of the McCook Club for the ensuing year will be held at the club rooms , Saturday , November 16th , 1895 , at 8 o'clock p. m. C. F. BABCOCK , Secretary. A false fire alarm was by mistake turned - ed in from the depot at about io o'clock , Friday night. We understand that the errort occurred while an operator was engaged - gaged in switching on the key board in the telegraph office , the fire alarm wire being switched in by mistake. Sometime before election- fact just after the county convention- alluded - luded to a quantity of oleo and a fine mess of parsnips. We withdraw the al- lusion-or illusion , if you please. There is no oleo and the parsnips are ditto. There are absolutely no goods to deliver- The trough is empty His friends are having not a little amusemeut at the expense of Electrician Ray Hall , who went gunning for geese , Sunday. Like Al..Bump and Chief Knights , he did not know that they were decoys , until he had plunked them so full of lead that they could not fly if they halt been real birds. Wants to know. OaAHA , Neb. Nov. 9 , 1895 To THE MCCOoK TRIBUNE : I would like to use your columns to ask a few pertinent questions , and make a few remarks : First , how does it happen - pen that yourself and C. T Brewer conic to have so many votes ? Only last week the Times-Democrat said that you two were the only dissatisfied Republicans in McCook ; but by THE TRIBUNE ( for which I had to wait to get the returns , as it was not seen fit to make any report to the Omaha papers , as is customary ) I see that the would-be Republican party was defeated It must be that you and Brewer stuffed the ballot box. Second , early to the campaign I was informed by Mr. Kelley that I would be a detriment - ment to the best good of the would-be Republican party ; that I could not make a satisfactory run , consequently I was left by the roadside. I would now like to ask Mr. Kelley if he can run for office successfully. Having the management - ment of the would-be Republican party , and having the entire ticket defeated. Accept my congratulations , Mr. Kelley , on your success. Next time don't tell people that they cannot have any office on account of theni supporting a petson wliont you are afraid to have run. I think that the Republican party as a party is still better than any one-man party , and I think that the would-be party has been taught a lessen that they will remember ; and remember that in the future that because the party is in the majority that they can not force any one man , or men , onto the party that you may see fit to place in nom- ination. Now , Mr , Kelley , where is your solid " 36" ? Respectfully yours , a Republican from principle , WM. M. ANDERSON. Mud ( ? ) Slinging. Our old time friend and subscriber John Shepherd discontinued his paper , this week , on the alleged grounds that he was opposed to mud slinging. ( We might add right here that our old friend's idea of mud slinging is , opposing such A , P , A deals as defeated the Republican - can county ticket , last week. ) Of such mud slinging we plead guilty. We take pride in opposing what we esteem erroneous - roneous , as well as satisfaction in promoting - meting what we hold true and honorable and right. As to mud slinging in its true and detestable - testable sense , we emphatically and indignantly - dignantly deny the imputation , and we are fully prepared to substantiate any statement made ( luring the campaign just closed. We have no objection to any one stopping - ping THE TRIBUNE , if the course of the publisher is unsatisfactory. But we prefer to have such persons state the true and genuine reasons for so doing , or none. Inexcusable Delay. The delay in ascertaining definite news from the district judgeship seems to he chargeable to the county clerk of Hitchcock - cock county , who refused to canvass the returns until late on Saturday evening , All the other .counties were in quite promptly. . The public is entitled to know election news as promptly as the same is ascertainable - tainable , and the county clerk who will in any way retard or obstruct the earliest securing of such official information is not performing his duty to his constitu- ency. And the public should hold all such officers to a strict accountability. It should be a pleasure to those in authority to do all in their power to enable - able the press to give the public the authentic - thentic result of elections at the earliest possible moment. Quit Your Meanness , Boys. The McCook Electric Light Co. have been so annoyed and put to so much expense - pense by the malicious destruction of incandescent - candescent lamps on their city circuit , by gangs of young boys , that they have been compelled to post notices all over the city offering a reward for information Leading to the conviction of any one guilty of destroying their street lamps. President Carruth informs us that as many as fourteen incandescent street 7 lamps have been destroyed in one week , by gangs of boys , who use poles , nigger shooters , etc. in their destruction. THE TRIBUNE would advise those engaged - gaged in such work to quit their meanness - ness at once , and for good. A fine and possible imprisonment may thus be averted , as the company is determined I t0 put a stop to such malicious work. t Special Notice. t E. & W. Collars and Cuffs will not be subject to a Discount or sold at less than Regular Prices during our Special Sale nest week. THE FA3fous CLOTHING Co.t s Dart has sold his Beaver City Times to Kelley and "For Revenue Only" will be merged into the Times. > . ; t s - r zr1 r , THE PEOPLE. L s t d' ' lx c tic A. J.

NOBLE and family took their departure , last night , for Bethany , Mo. , where they expect to make their future home.

There are still some people who do not recognize the difference between county newspapers now and twenty years ago. A paper in the earlier days represented an investment of $200 to $ .100 , and was indifferently managed , usually as a tail to some one's political kite. Receipts were uncertain , and often the withdrawal of the business of one patron brought consternation to the establishment or necessited reducing the sheet or its sus- pension. The established papers of the present represent investments , few less than $4,000 , many $ Ioooo to $15,000 , and sonic even more. The paper is in a sense a public institution , like a bank , anyone may enjoy its advantages by becoming - coming its patron. It bestows confidence - dence and favors as a bank reposes trust in those who by their conduct and reputation - tation seem to deserve it. A paper is naturally biased more than any other enterprise in favor of the place of its publication. Other concerns may move away , the paper is part of the city. For this reason it works harder and more zealously than any other factor to at. tract trade and to insure prosperity. The power of a progressive and liberal paper in this direction cannot be esti- mated. No calling today is more deserving - ing of encouragement. The work , which is exacting if properly done , has its com- pensations. Aside from the pleasure of helping one's home , townsmen and neighbors , the material returns will been on the whole as large as those of any other business representing the same in- vestnient.-Ex. A Bible Depository. Union services of the Protestant churches of the city were held in the 111. E. church , Sunday evening , Rev. E. C. Condit of Denver , superintendent of the American Bible society , filling the pulpit. His sermon was a continuation of his excellent Bible sermon iii the Congregational - gregational church on the same morning. A collection for the society was raised. At the conclusion of the evening services - vices , an auxiliary of the American Bible society was formed , to be known as the McCook Depository of the American Bible society , with T. B. Campbell as president ; J. A. Wilcox , vice president ; E. H. Rohlf , secretary ; Albert McMillen , treasurer. The drug store of the treasurer - urer was made the Depository. It is proposed to place a copy of the Bible in every home in the city and vicinity , either by sale or gift , in due time. The union services packed the edifice. In addition to the speaker Rev. J. A. Badcon , Rev. J. P Fuson , and Rev. H , L. Preston occupied the pulpit. Drowned in Meeker Ditch. The seven-year-old daughter of John Wacker , a Russian tenant on C. H. Meeker's farm south of the city , was drowned in the Meeker irrigating ditch , early Wednesday evening. It is thought that the little girl had started to cross the ditch on a plank , to go to her mother , who was at work in a neighboring corn field , and that site missed her footing , fell into the ditch and was drowned. Searching parties looked for the missing - ing girl all night , but without success. Early this morning the water was shut off , and the remains were soon recovered. This is the second sad fatality since the construction of the Meeker ditch , the other being the drowning of the young man in one of the small lakes up near the head of the ditch. The bereaved parents have much genuine - uine sympathy. Are Appreciative and Thankful. The Lady Maccabees are very thankful - ful to all persons connected with the play presented in the opera house , last week , with such gratifying success , under - der the auspices of the lodge , and in accordance - cordance with the action taken by the lodge , they desire to express their appreciation - ciation and gratitude to Mr. J , F. Forbes and the members of the company that so nobly assisted him in the product.on of the comedy , and to the ladies of the committee having the arrangements and business in charge.
