Two Brothers Quarrel and a Probable
\ Murder is Committed.
' * • And a Death May Result Both the
Parties Were Former Citizens
ofMcCook Intense Ex-
I - J cltement Prevails.
i ' A sad and terrible tragedy was enacted
\ on last Sunday , about nine miles north
of Haigler. Dundy county. Frank and
Charles Moore , brothers , were the prin-
fj cipals in the deplorable affair. The bro-
I there had a quarrel over some matter ,
i and as a result of the same Frank now
' lies in a very precarious condition , shot
[ through the right lung by his brother
I Charles.
f Dr. Z. L. Kav was summoned to the
I " bedside of the injured man , Monday ,
and reports his recovery as doubtful.
The sad affair has caused intense ex
citement in that section of Duudy coun-
i I ty. The deed is regretted by all. The
I Moores will be remembered by early
r settlers of McCook as having kept a restaurant -
taurant in this city , in the early days.
I The exact nature of the quarrel we are
I unable to report , but the intensest feeling -
ing has been engendered in the families ,
I and the wife of the injured brother vows
summary vengeance on the author of her
distress and sorrow.
I ' Charles Moore is a brother-in-law of
I W. O. Russell of our citj\ having niar-
I ried a Miss McCorkle. He is out on
[ $300 bail , and it is stated , is helping
I nnrse the injured man.
I . , f A Small Washout.
[ Monday evening's rain caused a small
I washout , both approaches of a piling
I bridge about five miles east of Bartley , de-
I laying all trains many hours. Nos. sand
I 3 reached here between seven and eight ,
\ \ the following morning. Nos. 4 and 2
I were consolidated at Hastings. Otherwise -
| wise traffic went on as usual , and the
f Burlington escaped with small damage.
2 A Great Rustler.
L „ , J. A. Resh , manager of the Stewart
t ranch , marketed some fine hogs in the
[ ' city , Monday. Mr. Resh is a great rustier -
tier , and has made things move success-
w fully on the Stewart ranch , even through
B. the late failure years. His crops , this
H season , are in supurb shape , and the
H prospect for a corn crop is splendid.
H- County Endeavor Society Picnic.

Br 361 pounds in weight. C. T. Brewer
BJ thinks they were the finest bunch of
my hogs ever shipped out of this station.
B But the market was poor. The same
B day , last year , the shipment would have ;
B | n ° tted over $300 more money.
Bi • A Victim of Appendicitis.

B' ness of Eli Crockford , junior , of the Wil-
B > low , with an attack ot appendicitis. Eli

B ) cracker proved too strong a combination
Bj for H. A. Rouch's coal house , Monday
B afternoon. An alarm called out the fire
B , department promptly , but the small L
HT structure was practically destroyed by

1 6O Feet Deep , but Apparently Not
Injured in the Least.
One day last week , a hog on William
Divine's j farm up in Coleman precinct ,
rooted off part of the covering to the well
on the place , and then took a tumble to
the t bottom , 160 feet. Mr. Divine went
down after his hogship , which was suc
cessfully raised to the surface in an apj
parentty uninjured condition , running
away when released at the top , as though
it had only fallen as mauj' inches.
This incident recalled to H. T.Church's
mind the fact that quite a number of
years ago he helped rescue a Texas steer
from a well 60 feet deep. The animal
had backed into the well. It was with
great difficulty pulled to within a few
feet of the top , with rope and windlass ,
when the steer made a terrific lunge out
of the well , and took a two-minute gait
over the prairie , much to the astonishment -
ment of the rescuers , who saw him never-
Both circumstances are without the
ordinary in circumstances.
The Joy of Youth.
The youthful members of the Junior
Endeavor societ3' of the Congregational

ous and merry time after the happy and
simple manner of innocence and youth ,
aided and abetted by the good offices of

A Heavy Bain Storm , Monday Night.
in This Section.
In j the Eastern Part of the County
and on the Beaver , but Is More
Destructive About
A heavy rain prevailed in this section
of Nebraska , Monday afternoon and eve
ning , -the heavy precipitation being in
some localities accompanied by severe
hail and lightning , both doing some dam
age. The hail did not reach any farther
west than Bartley , but was quite severe
between that place and Arapahoe , being
heaviest about Cambridge , where the
rainfall amounted to a small cloudburst ,
the rainfall being stated at from four to
eight inches in a brief while. There was
a small washout at a bridge about five
miles east of Bartley , both approaches
were washed away by the water which
covered and softened the roadbed for a
considerable distance in that neighbor
hood. The rainfall at Bartley was over
three inches. The lightning did some
damage at Bartley and Danbury and we
understand that a man by the name of
Campbell was drowned in attempting to
cross a swollen canyon near Lebanon.
At McCook the storm came latter in
the evening , amounting to a splendid
rain of 1.65 inches , without any damaging
ing : hail , wind or flood , and iti'ill do the
crops of all kinds great good.
In the hail districts , however , the
damage will for the most part be repairN
ed by time

freshments were spread on the lawn ina
most attractive and tasteful style and in
fetching profusion. The affair was all
the taste , cleverness and energy of the
ladies composing the club would lead
3'ou to expect.

To Subscribers of The Tribune.Q
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 faili
ures and hard times , and as a consequence
quence many hundreds of dollars are
due on subscriptions. We 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 re-
quest. The Publisher.
Sick With Typhoid Fever.
Dr. Z. L. Kay received word yesterday -
day , that his son Elmer , now located in
Joplin Mo. , is sick with an attack of

she may be able to nurse him success
fully through his illness and back to his
accustomed vigorous and robust health.

the ordinance against riding on the side

en these requests , public safety and regard -
gard § for life and limb demand it.

District School Meetings.
The storm belated many in attendance
upon district school meetings over the
county. And in one instance , those at a
meeting remained at the school house
until morning , being afraid to risk the
swollen canyons in the dark.
No Session Held.
The approaching storm , last Monday j
evening , kept so many from lodge that it
was thought advisable not to hold a
meeting of McCook lodge No. 1 , Star of
Stock Killed by Hail. (
It is stated on good authority that
stock , young and old , horses and cattle , .
were kilied by the hail in the vicinity of '
