A PATEIOTIO SEEVICE.
In the Congrregrational Church , Last
Sunday Evening : .
Last Sundaj * evening the regular ser
vice hour was given over to the Endeav-
orers , and a special patriotic service was
held in the Congregational church , in
which a good-sized audience took evid
ent pleasure , and from which they de
rived distinct profit.
The recitations , readings and music
were each and all enjoyed , and the ad
dress by Prof. Hosic on "Christian Citi
zenship" was heartily approved by all
for its earnestness and forcefulness. The
Professor believes in christian citizen-
shid , and gave most convincing reasons
why the country needs a vigorous brand
of that kind of citizenship. The pro-
gramme was as follows :
Opening hymn 96
Psalm 33 Maude Doan
Anthem Church Choir
"Words" Bessie Borneman
"Build" Jessie Johnson
"Country" Sarah Oyster
"Arsenal" Selma Noren

It may not be known to the officials

easy to be substantiated that a number
of houses of infamy in this city are. sell
ing liquor contrary to the law of the
state and the ordinance of the city.

IT WAS A GLORIOUS DAY
UcCook's Celebration Was a Most
A IAKGE , CONTENTED CROWD
Splendid Oration , Interesting and
Pleasing Attractions , Good
Order , Great Ox Roast , .
There are good and sufficient reasons
why the people of McCook maj' well
feel satisfied and pleased with the result
of their efforts to entertain the guests on
'the Fourth of July. From the opening
salute of .the early morning to the
closing flash and bang of the evening's
fireworks the occasion was devoid of unpleasant -
pleasant incident and fraught only with
At the appointed hour , headed by the
Nebraska Brigade band , the parade
formed on east Dennison street , started
on its prescribed march. The sublime
and the ridiculous were amusingly com
mingled in the procession. Uncle Sam ,
Fair Columbia , the states , the navy , in
patriotically decorated floats divided the
honors with the Calithumpians- alfalfa -
falfa and free silver mule , bicvclists on
gaily bedecked wheels , citizens in car
riages and on horseback. The affair
was quite creditable. The parade wound
up at the grand stand , where the exercises -
cises of the day were carried out as per

The oration by Judge Norris was the
chief feature of the morning's pro
gramme , , and the Judge has been highly
complimented on all hands for his-able
and eloquent effort , which was enjoyed
by all who had the pleasure jf hearing
it. At the conclusion of the programme
arranged for the morning , the people
were invited to partake of the.refresh
ments provided for the city's guests.
The roast ox , iced tea and other items
on the menu were excellent and Ratable ,
Manyappreciative words were spoken of
this feature of the entertainment , which
was as free as plentiful. This ended ,
the sports and amusements of the after
noon were taken up.
The sack race and the three-legged
race created quite a bit of fun. The
first prize in the sack race was won by
George Buhler , $1.50 ; the second money ,
$1.00 , by Jack Cashen. The first prize
in the three-legged race fell to Cashen
and Modrell , $3.00 ; the second money
to Ed. and Henry Jeffries , $2.00.
The bicycle and foot races were run
off at the track of the McCook athletic
club grounds on the west side : .
One mile novice Cordeal. Hoylman ,
Carlton , Troth , Brewer , Wood and
Stangeland entered. Stangeland won
first prize , $6.00 bicycle suit ; Troth second -
end , $5.00 bicycle lamp ; Brewer third ,
$1.50 cyclometer. Time 2:53 : . n l s
race Carlton met with an accident in
which he was considerably bruised up
and his wheel badly broken.
One-fourth mile McCarl , • Leach ,

McCarl won first prize , $10.00 gold , medal -

Leach third , $4.00 sweater. Time 2:58. :
This promised to be the hottest race of
the programme , but an unfortunate col
lision , near the end , betwe ' en Belles and
Stangeland piled them both up. Stange-
land's wheel was badly damaged , and
Belles slightly hurt. The accident oc
curred while Stangeland was trying to
pass Belles , and the Judges declared it

Connell , Carlton , Cordeal , Doan and

winner all the other contestants fell
from their wheels at various stages of
the race and had to retire. His prize
was-a $3.50 silver cup.
Half mile open Cordeal , Hoylman ,
McCarl , Troth and Wood entered. This
was a pretty race. Hoylman set the
pace the first quarter , and it was fast ,
but fell away in the. rear at the finish ,
wMch was very close , and the judges
took some time in deciding the race.
McCarl won first , $3.00 bicycle shoes ;
Brewer second , $2.00 hat ; Troth third , •

The boys' race and the consolation
race did not fill , and were declared off.
The bicycle races were among themes
mos .t interesting and exciting events of ' .
the day , and drew a large crowd to the

'Athletic club's grounds. The grand
stand was full and the quarter mile
track was completely encircled by eager
and expectant people who were not dis
appointed by poor races.
The foot races lacked somewhat in
• interest for the reason that no one was
swift enough to interest Blaeholder.
The 100 yards race fell an easy mark to
Henry Blaeholder , $3.00 ; Tony Stetzer
• took ] second money , $2.00.
There was only one money in the 75
yards race and Blaeholder took that ,
The half mile race also became an
easy ( victim to Blaeholder , $4.20 ; Stetzer
second • , $2.80.
There were many entries in the boys'
race , but E. J. Badcon won first money ,
$1.50 < ; R. S. Garber second , $ r.oo.
