Banquet the Band. L
It is admitted by all who participated '
in the affair that the banquet tendered 3'
the Nebraska Brigade band , Thursday { .
evening , was one of the most felicitous
occasions of the kind in many moons , * =
and-that among other desirable results s
the business men of the city aud the
members of the band now have a much ? :
better understanding and the band will ,
in future be appreciated as it never has
been in the past. It will be recognized
as one of the best advertising mediums
the city has ever enjoyed and will be en
couraged properly and fully as it merits.
The banquet was spread by Robert
Bj'ers at the Burlington dining hall and \
was a splendid example of the caterer's , :
art. The dining hall was filled to its *
capacity and there was ever } ' evidence
of complete and unalloj'ed pleasure on * '
the part of both entertained aud euter- *
tainers. After the banquet cigars were
passed and the Toastmaster Col. J. S.v
LeHew was duty installed in office. His
introductions of the speakers of the a
evening were clever and appropriate and
the responses were in a very happy strain.
Among the responses were those of Wil
liam Valentine , Sylvester Cordeal , Dr. C
W.V. Gage , J. H. Berge , Dr. S.C. Beach , \
C. F. Babcock , H. P. Sutton. H.W. Cole C
and J. E. Kelley , and it was developed
that McCook has some fetching post
prandial talent , especially when the Bri
gade band is the object of the expressions
of pride and satisfaction.
The affair was in fine a very satisfac
tory success and is duly appreciated by
the band as an expression of the well-
wishes of our people and of their un
bounded pride in the more recent ac
complishments of the organization es

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

the expectation that all will appreciate
our past indulgence and respond at once.

The managers of the coming Bryan
meeting expect a large crowd for Satur
day , October 23. Word from Frontier

The symptoms are : coldsticky sweats ,
tired-out feelings , chilly feelings alter
nating with hot flashes , coated tongue ,
bad breath , dizzy head and dull head
ache , loss of appetite , heavy , unrefresh-
