MeCOOK TO CELEBRATE
Arrangements Perfected for a Rousing
JUDGE G. W. NORRIS WILL ORATE
Amusements , Parade , Music. Fire
works , and a General Good
Time Is Assured.
That McCook will celebrate the na
tion's natal day , and do it on a big scale ,
is now assured. A number of hundred
dollars have already been raised to de
fray the expenses of such a celebration
as our people propose to have , and an
absorbing programme of entertainmeut
has been provided.
There will be bicycle races , foot races ,
sack races and other amusements , for
which good purses will be offered.
Judge G. W. Norris of Beaver City will
be the orator of the day. The Brigade
band of our city will provide the music.
A large appropriation has been made for
fireworks , and a great pyrotechnic dis
play will be given in the evening.
McCook has not indulged in a celebra
tion of this kind for a number of years ,
and it is proposed to make this a highly
creditable success , to do their utmost to
entertain those who may come to cele
brate with us and do all they can for the
comfort of their guests on the auspicious

Home interests constitute one of the
strong arguments for home trade and
and home patronage. The laboring
man , the mechanic , and all sorts of bus
iness men are alike interested in spend
ing their money at home. This policy ,
if carefully followed , builds up and pro
tects home industries. The interchange
of labor and articles for home use , the
buying and selling through the dealer ,
one and all combined-is very often the
guarantee of a successful business en
terprise. The mechanics , the laboring
men , and families of moderate incomes
are very loyal on these lines. So far as
their wants are concerned , they are sup
plied by doing all their trading with
home merchants. Our merchants and
dealers recognize this fact. When the
shops are running on fuii time , when
labor is plenty and produce commands a
good return , then business is on the up
grade. The reverse of these conditions
makes dull trade with most every kind
of merchant trading. It is a good pol
icy to buy at home anj and everything
that is handled over the counter or can
be procured by orders. Business men of
all kinds should bear these facts in mind
and never go abroad for anything that
can be procured in your own town and
county. Alma Record.
Are Growing Poor Seed.
Many mistakes are being made now
during this alfalfa craze by so many try
ing to grow it for seed instead of haj * ,
and the result will be a large amount of
very poor seed will be put on the mar
ket ; seed that is immature , more than
one-half of which will not germinate , be
sides a very large amount of very valu
able hay will be spoiled. It may seem
severe to say that not one fanner in ten
in Nebraska , growing alfalfa , is at this
time competent to grow seed , and this
is throwing no reflection on the growers ,
but the fact is , so many of them are in
experienced in alfalfa culture and so
many of our fields are new , that our
growers must have patience , wait until
their fields are older and better set and
until a number of crops of hay have been
grown. We will not learn to swim by
watching the fishes , nor to fiy by watch
ing the birds fly , no more can we learn
all about alfalfa culture by reading about
it , though with experience and practice
what we read will be of great benefit to
us. Nebraska Farmer.
Pay Your Dog : Tax.
Owners of dogs are requested to call
at the office of the city clerk at once
and pay tax on their dogs. The police
are instructed to dispose of all untagged
dogs as provided by city ordinance , so
owners of valuable or pet dogs should
act promptly in this matter.

Tony Probst's baker's wagon was bad
