THE probabilities are that there
will bd but one Republican congressional -
ressional convention in the Fifth
district. The two-convention idea
is not popular , and for numerous
quite good reasons.
THE play is cast with Governor
McKinley in the leading role , in
Nebraska. At least the popular
apostle of protection so far seems
to be practically alone in the field
for this state's delegation ,
RED CLOUD seeks economy for
the coming municipal year by calling -
ing for a no-salary administration
to be chosen in the spring. Salaries -
ries of all public kinds are coming
down to correspond with present
MOKINLEY clubs will be more
appropriate and popular after he
is nominated ; , but let us not anticipate -
ipate , nor give place-seekers the
pull they are probably seeking to
secure out of the present wave of
enthusiasm for the Governor.
THE Populists of Hitchcock co.
are urging the qualifications of
j. P. Price of Stratton for the congressional -
gressional nomination. Price hails
from Nemaha county , and was formerly -
merly a Republican wheel horse
down in Churcli Howe's county.
IT would at least be in good
taste , if not an act of reasonable
discretion , far G. W.Norris to muzzle -
zle his hired man , J. W. Kelley of
the Beaver City Hyphen , at least
so far as Colonel Merwin of the
Beaver City Tribune is involved.
UNSPEAKABLE Cole of the Cul-
bertson Era styles G. L. Laws as
a , renegade ; and a great daily of
the state republished the dastardly
insult to an honored and honorable
old veteran and esteemed citizen.
The puny , impudent , scurrilous
OF the 84 Dublishers at the late
state association meeting , who expressed -
pressed choice for presidential
nominees , 54 were for McKinley ,
and the rest were scattering. The
Napoleon of protection is evidently
a prime favorite with the quill
pushers over the state.
A CURABLE DISEASE.
GHn0Iv 1o CATARRH IS PRONOUNCED
CURABLE BY Du. HARTMAN.
There are an almost countless
number of remedies said to cure
chronic catarrh. The most of these
are of no use whatever , and many
worse than useless being actually
harmful. A few are successful in
+ small number of cases-those
which are very slight and easily
curable-cases which might almost
get well by simply taking care not
to catch cold again. But of all
this vast multitude of medicines it
cannot be said that there are more
than two or three that are actually
specifics , and without doubt the
most reliable is Pe-ru-na. It always -
ways cures when it is faithfully
and conscientiously used. It not
only cures catarrh of the head and
throat , but catarrh of the 'stomach ,
liver , bowels , lungs , bronchial
tubes , kidneys , and in fact any of
the organs of the human body. It
is indeed a dreadful case of catarrh ,
wherever located , that Pe-ru-na
cannot cure , or at least greatly
help. It may be procured at all
the drug stores , and it should be
given a faithful trial by those who
have tried in vain elsewhere to get
A book on catarrh and catarrhal
diseases of 64 : instructively illustrated -
trated pages will be sent free to
any address by the Pe-ru-na Drug

The event of the week in In-
dianola was the lecture by the Rev.
Robert McIntyre , Monday even-
ing. The new Masonic hall was
well filled to receive him , and for
two hours his mingled pathos and
humor delighted all. Dr. McIn-
tyte has at his command a wealth
of felicitous phraseology , and in
voice and gesture he knows how to i
make every impression upon his
audience one complete whole. He
makes one follow his rapid changes
in sentiment without feeling at all
that they are abrupt.
It is one of the advantages of
our law system that it permits a
man to pay for inflicting a deserved -
ed punishment upon his neighbors.
That is what W. A. McCool was
privileged to do , last Saturday , by
Judge Smith. McCool endured
the insolent "orneriness" of some
youths by the name of Wolfe as
long as patience could be called a
virtue , and then , at their invitation
settled accounts with them in the
right manner. Probably it was
worth the fine of ten dollars ; and
will not need to be repeated.

John Divine and Ida Bymer of
this precinct , were united in the
bonds of wedlock by Rev.G. P. Fu-
son of McCook. The ceremony
took place at the home of bride's
parents and was witnessed by about
fifty guests. A reception was given
at the home of the groom's parents
on Monday afternoon , when some
seventy friends and neighbors were
received. The groom has rented
the old S. A. Shafer farm , five
miles northwest of McCook , where
they will at once go to housekeep-
ing' They have the good wishes
of many warm friends.
It is our sad and painful duty
to chronicle the death of another
of our young people. Walter
Epperly took to his bed on last
Saturday and on Tuesday night
at 9 o'clock , his spirit took its
flight into the spirit land. Pneumonia -
monia was the cause of his sudden -
den death. Walter was about 19
years of age , full of life and energy ,
and just developing into vigorous
manhood. He will be sadly missed
by his associates. Boys , Walter
joined with you in your sports and
plays , but he has left you , and one
place in your games is vacant. Who
will be the next to go ? God only
knows. Be always ready , "For in
an hour ye think not the Son of
man cometh" . The grief of the
parents is almost unbearable , as
Walter was their only child. The
friends mingle their tears with the
bereaved parents over the loss of
their only and beloved son. The
funeral took place at Zion Hill
church , Friday at 12 noon , interment -
ment at the same place.
A Young Peoples' Society of
Christian Endeavor was organized
at the Coleman school house on
last Sunday at the close of Sunday
school. H. K. Bixler was elected
president ; William Prentice , vice-
president ; Miss Edith Coleman ,
recording secretary ; Miss Viola
Corner , corresponding secretary ;
Miss Grace Cole , treasurer. The
different committees of the society
were appointed and the society has
already started out on its mission
of labor for the Master , holding
its first meeting at said school
house , Sunday evening at 7 o'clock.
The house was full. In the future
they will meet in said school house
every Sunday evening. A cordial
invitation is extended to every one
within reach to meet with them.
You will be heartily welcomed.
Friends , come out and test the
sociability of the members of this
society. They will do you good if
you will permit them. The society
is "union" through and through.
There is not a particle of sectarianism -
anism in or about it. Its mission
is to save never-dying souls , and
it has no sympathy with nor use
for the idea of spending God-given
time , energy and intellect in trying
to save church property at the expense -
pense of precious , immortal souls ,
who are hungering for words of
eternal life. This society proposes
to hunt up such and taking them
by the hand point them to the
"Lamb of God that.taketh away
the sin of the world" . The society
starts out with a membership of
24 , which will , we predict , increase
to 40 very soon. All hail to the
Y. P. S. C. E. of Coleman town-
ship. May they be instrumental
in leading many precious souls to
Him , and thus adding stars to their
crowns of , rejoicing.
