HA * The prosecution of the work of im-
KvL provement in Longview cemetery has
wWm $ -disclosed a lamentable lack of order and
I Sf xegularity in the past. In fact-thereJias
B tRbeen such an utter disregard of lines and
K tjjT boundaries in some parts of the cemetery
f * that it ii now quite impracticable to iky
3 ( | \ out the street , alleys and burial plots

PjjPB | fences and graves are in part in the alleys
I iftS& an ( streets aQd of course in the interest

Bp moved. The Tribune bespeaks for
aP'JBft those in charge of this important work
MftmiK the prompt and hearty cooperation of

aSf k cellar , where the fire originated. Within
| II3lP > a kalf hour the fire was extinguished.
K # The chief damage was done by the

IHLvtN ary origin. The attempt has so discour-

The Nebraska Brigade band , Uniform
Rank , Knights of Pythias , of McCook ,
captured the large audience at Lake
Manawa , last evening. The band has
been engaged to play at the Nebraska
State fair and filled an engagement for
Colonel Reed at the Grand Plaza with
such success that it was the unanimous
verdict that it was the finest band 'that
has ever played at the lake. The organ
ization is composed of twenty-seven
pieces , under the leadership of H. P.
Sutton , and while the audience was en
tranced with the faultless rendition of
Rossini's overture ; "Semiramide" , it
could uot help but marvel how it became
possible for a Nebraska village to contain
such an aggregation of rare musical tal
ent , and that it should be discovered and
drilled to such perfection as its work last
night indicated. The concert was full
of special features , among them the piccolo
cole solo by , R oy Smith , a 17-year-old
boy , who was given the piccolo for the
the first" time less than six months ago.
About twenty members of the Arapahoe
Second Regiment band were among the
delighted ' listeners to the music. This
band will divide honors with the McCook
boys at the fair. A glance at the pro
gram that was rendered last night will
give \ an idea of the character of the music
to be expected !

The second division was under com
mand of Major H.J. Penfold , with E. E.
Bryson and W. H. McCord as aids , and
was led by a superb band from McCook ,
Nebraska. This band is the pride of
the Nebraska Brigade , Uniformed Rank
of ( the Knights of Pythias , "and bears its
name. : It is composed of twenty-eight mu
sicians , under the leadership of Prof.H.P.
Sutton , while Drum Major E. L. Laycock
wields the baton. The band last evening
discarded its full dress uniform , which
consists of the familiar Pythian regalia ,
and in its stead wore a brilliant uniform
of white and maroon , the trousers of
white duck and the military jackets of
maroon colored-broadcloth , ornamented
with black frog braiding. The helmets
were white , with extra long maroon-
colored plumes. It was a strikingly
handsome uniform. The band's playing
was of a high standard of excellence.

THE ENDEAVOR RALLY
A Source of Inspiration to the Soci
ety and Visitors.
The rally at Fitch's grove , last Sunday ,
was a source of inspiration , to the South
Side Endeavor society. The attendance
was good and interest manifested earn
est. There were representatives present
from two or three neighboring societies ,
and all had a basket dinner in the grove
at noon , the program following in the
afternoon. The exercises opened with
a song service led by the Congregational
church choir of McCook. Then followed
addresses , papers , etc. , from different
members , all of which were earnest and
filled with instruction and profit.
The program concluded with exercises
by the Junior Endeavor in charge of Mrs.
W. G. Dutton. This was the most inter
esting feature of the evening. The little
ones performed their different songs ,
recitations , readings , etc. , with credit.
The rally was withal a success , and
will do much toward encouraging the
good work in that neighborhood , where
the Endeavorers are zealous and active
and destined to accomplish- end
aimed at by the great organization of
which they are a branch. Success attend

To the Farmers of S. W. Nebraska.
It has become the custom of the farmers -
mers of the successful agricultural states
to hold "Farmers' Conventions" , where
those engaged in farming and stock-rais
ing assemble and discuss and exchange
ideas as to the kind of crops best adapted
to their locality , and the best methods '
of cultivation ; and those who have at
tended such conventions agree that great
benefits result from the recitals of the 1
experience of those present. |
We believe that great good will result
from such a meeting of farmers at this
time , and hereby issue a call for a "Far-
mers' Convention" to be held at Mc
Cook , Nebraska , Thursday and Friday ,
September 17th and 18th , 1896 , for the
purpose of discussing any and' all ques
tions relating to farming , dairying , and
stock-raising in this section of the coun
A good camping ground with abund
ance of water will be at your disposal and
we urge all farmers to attend this meeting
Come the evening before and bring
your camping outfit and let us have a
pleasant and profitable time.
' If 3'ou are in doubt as to the good re
sults , come for recreation and you will
go home well satisfied.
There will be an open air concert ,
Thursday evening , by the McCook K.
P. Band , one of the best in the state , and
which is now filling an engagement at
the Slate Fair.
