w\ ft week , the Nebraska Brigade baud of our
A\ $ c'tv won le s . econl Trlze $ l& ° - It was
H1 * at first reported that the band received
H * M the first prize , but this proved to be false
E g much to tne regret of all McCookites.
V | K It is popularly admitted that our band
H jR was the finest and best iu the contest ,
Ww' but being outsiders and much money be-
I f > ' " * > UP ou tue resu m fflvor of the Tell-
W\ \ J | uride band that band was awarded the
I Ve first prize of $300. The third prize a
I | 4 gold medal went to the Colorado MidI -
I W land band.
L ja The following glowing words of praise
& * from the Denver dailies indicate the pop-
K M ular standing of our band :
W Vh The fourth band to take the contesic
I § ants' chairs was the Nebraska Brigade
I 1'B band of McCook , Neb' . , consisting of
I ' w twenty-eight pieces , with H. P. Sutton
A , , as leader. They were magnificent in
B \ } appearance and the people were with
mfmT then before they played a note.
RagB Their red jackets , with black braljk
K * trimmings , white duck pants , white hel-
v * inets and scarlet plumes was a change
I * from the preceding uniforms. They
Hi \ S were gay , but not gaudy. They played
K I "Semiramide" , by Rossini and from the
L J attack to the finish their music enrap-
V f tured the crowd. In the judgment of
m r the masses the Nebraska visitors were in
M the lead , and when they finished playing
' 1 the cheering was so long and loud as to
I / partially drown the Eagle band's music
I \ as it marched along " Broadway playing
> the "Homestead"March" .
) The event of the evening , however ,
I / was the second appearance of the Nebraska -
\ braska Brigade band marching to the
I / > mnsic of the "Chicago Evening Post
K. ( March" . Twice thej'covered the course
| iu response to the applause that broke
I forth. Headed by their drum major
I ! T with his white grenadier cap , they
U- marched and counter-marched , " formed
B 1 hollow squares and performed sundry
m y other evolutions that set them and their
I " i ) gay uniforms off to the best advantage.
I Evening Times.
L m \ Fourth came the heroes of the morn-
lt ing. as made out by the publ.c , which
B g\ with great enthusiasm heard the accoin-
W * * U plishmeuts of the McCook ( Neb. ) baud ,
a , K. of P , , under the leadership of H. P.
B tj Sutton. The band numbered twenty-
K 1 eight musicians and they won instant
Hk M favor by their uniform , which was very
MP m striking , consisting of crimson coats ,
B 1 white duck trousers , white helmets , in
K which drooped scarlet plumes. The
j | baud looked to mean business when it
B f began to play Rossini's "Semiramide" .
K \ • It is a very difficult composition , full of
H f ' technique , trying very severely the ca-
\ Vi pacity of the musicians , but they were
Wk fL > % equal to the requirements of the mo-
Kk jf ment. The precision , the time , the
Hts \ shading , the. spirit and the interpreta-
HJp V tiou were the best so far presented and
Ml Ii the great audience again and again broke
ifj out in applause. The melodies of the
, * I piece were certainly brought out with
Bj \ fine tone coloring and were heard with
I f At the end of the playing the grand
W&- % stand arose en masse to cheer loud and
I , ' long. Most flattering , however , was the
Ii li applause of the other musicians , who
H * f * ' ; uted ; "That was all right" .
K Uli ' "J ° r tieir , march this band played
K ' ks'"Chicago Evening Post" , with
B& \ a spirit , volume and dash that again
W 8' took the crowd off its feet and inspired
B prolonged hand-clapping and shouting ,
B ; 1 The appearance of the band aided the
Bl f presentation of what it offered and it
Bt f had to march and counter-march for the
n \ benefit of the audience , which would not
B \ tire of seeing the musicians. Appreci-
j ated very much was the wheeling and
Bji sfantastic marching of the band. Even-

day evening. All three of the denominations -
ations were quite well represented and a
profitable service was enjoyed with pleat
sure. These joint services are doing a
great j deal to broadeu and strengthen the
bonds of brotherhood between the vari
ous churches of this place.
After the regular prayer and praise
service the meeting went into a business
session and the matter of establishing a .
Y. M. C. A. in McCook was discussed ,
The committee appointed to look over
the ground made a preliminary report
and requested additional jnetnbership.
The new members were added to the
committee , which is now composed of
Revs. J. A. Badcon and G. W. Sheafor ,
Messrs. W. F. Lawsou , Russell McMill
len ' , E. L. Rohlf and J. W. Purvis. This
strengthened committee will still further
investigate : the question along the lines
of it's practicability and will report at a
meeting to be called in the future by the
coia pittee. The need of such an agency
is ( tytzoguizcil and is benefits appreciated ,
asii > whether such an association can be
maintained in a city of the size and fina
ancial resources of McCook is a .question
yet to be determined.
Heavy September Collections.
County Treasurer Berge reports the
collections of taxes for the month of
September , 1S97 , as the largest for years ,
perhaps in the history of the countas
following [ comparative table indicates :
89 J6.425.75 94 $5,360.71
90 4,471-67 95 4.294-63

92 7.485-OI 97 7.889.87
93 5.188.47
This disposition to clean up back taxes
and personal taxes on the part of the
people will do much toward maintaining
and improving the present financial con
dition of the county , which is very satis-
factory when the times and circum
stances of the past few years are consid
ered. Doubtless a large amount of delinquent -
linquent taxes will yet be paid , this fall ,
as the small grain and corn harvest is
completed. If so there is a prospect
that the taxes for the near future may
be lower than they have been.
Pay Your Delinquency.
In view of the better times , and higher
prices for grain etc. , the publisher ex
pects those indebted to The Tribune
for , subscription to make good their de
linquencies at once. During the con
tinued hard times and failures no effort
was made to force the collection of sub
scription accounts , but now that the con
ditions have changed greatly for the bete
ter it is expected that these delinquencies
will be promptly paid up. Statements
will be sent out to all in arrears and with
the expectation that all will appreciate
our past indulgence and respond at once.
