The 30th day of May in each recurring : : year
has been sot apart and established by the
Grand Army of the Republic as a perpetual
Memorial day for its deceased comrades.
On that day it is the custom of the surviving
comrades to meet , in all places , and hold ap
propriate exercises , then proceed to the respective -
spective burial places and strew beautiful
flowers on the graves : : of their departed com-
, To the end that Memorial day may be duly
i observed in the city of McCook , I request that
all business places be closed at noon on the .
30th- day of May , 1896 , and remain closed un
til the Memorial exercises are concluded and
the citizens abstain from all but necessary
labor ( during that time and assist in the Me-
morial services of the day.
As a further mark of respect to the memory
t I of these fallen heroes flags will be placed at
half mast upon all public buildings of the
> citv.Tn testimony whereof I have hereunto set
my hand , at the city of McCook. this 18th day
of May , 1896. 11. II. TROTH , Mayor.

ONE of the necessary qualifications of
1 of a successful politician is fidelity to
his. friends. Permanent success and
J I lasting ! : accomplishment must rest up-
on it.
, I .
\ TIlE St. Louis cyclone , Tuesday , was
I . one of the worst in the history of this
I country. There were a number of hun-
; i dred lives lost , and the property loss will
j I be in the millions. .
I ,
THE gubernatorial candidacy of Judge
/ ' M.Tv. Hayward seems to be at once tak-
ing on substantial form. The Judge is
a man of character and brains. Just
keep an eye on his gait. He may sur-
, prise you.
! So FAR , this year has been a rather
: poor year for the political bosses , and
! the slate makers at Lincoln would save
II themselves a good deal of trouble by
J. making note of that fact. The people
i : themselves are taking a little band in politics -
l I itics on their own account.-Red Cloud
THE insurance companies are after
I the valued policy law. And the people
J should see to it that the integrity the
law is maintained. The insurance fel-
I lows are able to and do too much shirk-
ing of loss paying : now. The law should
be made more binding rather than pli
, I , able.
THE honor and success of the Repub-
lican party and the integrity and safety
I of the state are paramount to the claims
r ? or demands of any favorite son or any :
+ ; portion of the state. They must be i
higher than the insolence of any com
bine or slate makers who may seek to
turn the state convention into a mere
ratification meeting.
THE extraordinary decisions of At .
torney General Churchill respecting the
investment of state funds is one of the
't most disquieting incidents of the pres-
' ent canvass for state nominations , and
. seem to us to emphasize the necessity
of naming a state treasurer in the July
convention who will insist upon received -
ii ceived something tangible and bus
iness like when he succeeds the pres-
I > . , ent incumbent.

, , THE news that Tesla has at last per-
fected his new system of lighting with
electricity will create a genuine sensa-
tion in business as well as scientific cir-
cles. It has long been hinted that this
gifted inventor would soon give the
world a small electric bulb , unencum-
bered with wires and the ordinary disadvantages -
advantages of the old incandescent light ,
that would be strong enough to flood a
d large room with sunlight. It he is now
ready to make his invention known it is
time for the government to pay him a
' reasonable price for it and give it to the
public at once. The people are weary
z of private ownership of water and light-
ing plants. Let us take advantage of
these new inventions and make them
free to all the citizens of the United
States.-Lincoln Journal.
And now , Oh Lord , let the servant depart -
part in peace.
I THE interest that is heinsj arot , : pl in ! ,
state p } litir ; by the press is ite-slined ,
we be..t-ve. to result in good to the Republican -
publican party and advantage to the
state. Attention has been directed to the
fact that combinations undoubtedly exist -
ist , and that slates have been made , and
that the work of the coming convention
has been anticipated and "fixed" . The
danger of such politics has been her.
aIded abroad over the state , and even
the politicians are thinking and that
right seriously. The very probable disaster -
aster which may result to the party
should we fail to nominate clean , able
and representative men at the coming
convention , and the combine or gang I
be allowed to carry out their personal .
schemes , is being appreciated and felt
by those who keep their ears close to the
ground , and there are healthful indica
tions that a determined , earnest effort
will be made at the coming convention
to in a measure wipe off old scores and
begin anew. Wise and patriotic lead-
ers are beginning to realize that the good
of the commonwealth and the honor
and success of the party are at stake in
a real measure in the outcome of the
convention of next July ; and it is safe
and judicious for the press , the people
and even the politicians to continue in
pressing the vital importance of this
Another Boycott On.
A rumor is abroad , says the Troy
Chieftain , that the A. P. A. are going to
boycott the Lord for permitting Charles
Carroll , a Catholic to survive all the
other signers of the Declaration of Inde-
Orleans Chautauqua Dates.

rolling off a horse backward over his
tail , with a keg of water in your arms , 1
interview Bert Wales. He tried it one .

little bit.
A horse's back is as slippery as a peeled
pawpaw pole. Such were the conclusions

age done.

practice for an indefinite period on a
spring calf.

Whom Cain Married.
The following interesting item was
contributed to the New York Sun of
recent date :
In a recent issue of your Sunday
. edition a party asked : "Whom did
i Cain niairy" He married his sister.
Her name was Ripha. This St. Chrys-
ostom says , was the tradition of the
Jews of his time. This information may
be found in Duprion's "Concordance of
the Holy Bible" .
Genesis , v. 4 , says of Adam : "And
he begot sons and daughters" . Josephus
says that Ackiin and Eve had thirty-three
sons and thirty-two daughters. The sons
of our first parents married their sisters.
The Old Testament was written as a
I preparation for the coming of Christ ,
and the history of personages who did
mot typify Him or relate to Him are not
given. The holy and innocent Abel was
a figure of Christ who was killed by his
brethren , and Cain and Abel and their
histories are related , while nothing is
said of the other children.
It may be of interest to your many read
ers to know the exact meanings of the
names of the patriarchs who lived from
Adam to Noe , as follows : Adam , "Man
in the image of God" or "the Reasoning
being" ; Seth , "Substituted by" ; Enos ,
"Frail man" ; Caanan , "Lamenting fell" ;
Malaleel , "The Blessed God" ; Jared ,
" " "The
"Shall come down" ; Henoch ,
Teacher" ; Methusalah , "His death shall
send" ; Lamech "To the humble" ; Noe ,
"Rest" or "Consolation" . Now putting
these English meanings of the Hebrew
names together we have the following :
"Man in the image of God , substituted
by Frail man , Lamenting fell , The
Blessed God , Shall come down , The
Teacher His death shall send , To the
humble , Rest or Consolation" .
Here in the very names of the great
, fathers of our race before the flood , we
find a revelation of the fall of mankind ,
. the sorrows of sin , the incarnation of
Christ ' how He will come as a Teacher ,
His death , His redemption , given to the
humble ones who will receive His Teach-
ings , and the rest and consolation of
peace from wars and the blessings of
These are but a few of the wonderful
things the student finds in the Holy

Readers of THE TRIBUNE will please
remember that cash is an essential in
the publication of a paper. The pub-
lisher has been very lenient during the
past few years , on account of crop fail-

quence many hundreds of dollars are
due on subscriptions. are now com
pelled to request all who can to call and
make settlement in full or in part. In
view of the facts , our subscribers must
feel the justice and urgency of this request -
