B - K \ Their Annual Fair.
Bw s fll' % 0n last Saturday evening the ladies of
I 1 | S the Dorcas society of the Congregational
K WL if church closed their annual fair of two
H/ / day8 , The lad'e8 as U8Ual scored a
t J *
Hl f | | 1 very gratifying and complimentary sucK -
K /W | | cess. Their entertainments were liber-
L Vao II ally attended and greatly enjoyed , their
Blfif ] supper was freely patronized and the
k VftlS sale of fancy work was quite satisfactory.
K y . Ig ' The gross proceeds will be in the neigh-
L I T f borhood of two hundred dollars , which
H > I W # will give the ladies a neat sum for all
H 1 ® J'S their hard work.
K r Hi R n r * ay evening the feature of en-
B t [ jp * \ tertainmeut consisted in a little one-act
H' t W& ' % comedy entitled "Bachelor Maids. " The
H i > * la was crowded on this occasion and
H / WvL e comedy was greatly enjoyed by all
' M who could see and hear. Saturday even-
8 ! L
H \ yW * ing's programme was made up of tab-
M V m it leaux , scenes , etc. , and the audience ,
KO < " ' j though some somewhat smaller than on
H t * J& the preceding evening , was not a whit
B I' "Of 7 * ess aPPrecat > ve. The tableaux were
V } 7 r f beautiful and were warmly encored ; in
B ! > fact McCook audiences seem to be par- <
H / , tial to tableaux , which by the light of
V i j > the school lantern , which was kindly
H < | ; f loaned for the occasion , are decidedly
1 pretty.
> m' 5 \ The different booths were very prettily
W , , * decorated , and the costuming wus espec-
W ially attractive and elaborate , particu-
KjA larly in the case of the gypsy camp and
JK .j tableaux and the dancing dolls ,
1 j&fa \ Overtures were played on the piano
1 © \ both evenings by Mesdames A. P. Bon-
| H J not and \V. B. Mills , as an opening to
W \ the entertainments offered.
Jft J Tlle ladies of the society are to be cou-
afX gralulated upon the measure of success
bH achieved. They deserved it all. And
_ , M' 4 all connected with the affair , in what-
B $ § | J ever capacity , are proper subjects for feM -
M \ wt licitatious and gratitude. The amount
K fi $1 If of work involved in the preparation and
3 jjSl carrying through to successful conclu-
H | f \ [ I ston such an affair is simply immense ,
HK'L JI aud the ladies are entitled to all bene-

They Love The Old Bird.
The recent insult offered to"01d Abe"
by Colonel Mitchell , in a recent issue of
his paper , is resented by the old soldiers
of Bartley and vicinity in a vigorous
way. The expressions of auger that
might have been heard on the streets of
that burg , the next day after that paper
i appeared in that place , were warm
• enough to burn holes in the surround
ing atmosphere. There will be a hot
' time in the old town the next time the
jcolonel goes down there after news.

A Bumper Success.
The musical and reunion held in St.
Patrick's church , Tuesday and Wednes
day evenings of this week , was a bum
per success. The church was crowded
to its utmost capacity with appreciative
audiences on both evenings , and the en
tertainment provided was splendid in
deed. The musical programme was pro
duced by such well known aud popular
artists as Mrs. A. P. Bonnet , Mrs. P. F.
McKenna , Miss Hannah Stangland , Miss
Bertha Townsend , Mrs. C. W. Brouson ,
Mrs. A. J. Clute , Mrs. George Elbert ,
Miss Maggie Hannan , Miss Jennie Gibbons
bens , Miss Florence Thompson , Miss
Maud Cordeal , Rev. J. W. Hickey , Dr.
S. C. Beach , Mr. Joseph Schmitz , and F.
A. Thompson. The various choruses ,
quartets , trios , duets and solos , both vo
cal and instrumental , were received with
warmest evidences of appreciation and
with marked enthusiasm. It was , as
promised , a rare musical treat.
Supper was served from an early hour
in order to accommodate the large crowd
that thronged the church , commencing
at 5:30 and continuing until a late hour.
The ladies spread an elegant feast in the
greatest abundance , a supper which in
itself was well worth the price asked for
both entertainment and supper.
The decorations were exclusively pa
triotic , the stars and stripes being used
in the form of flags and bunting , draped
and hung in different parts of the church.
On Wednesday evening the particulars
were as attractive and entertaining as
upon the first night. Much of the pro
gram was new and the refreshments
were equal in every respect.
The Tribune desires to congratulate
the members of St. Patrick's church up
on the great and merited success of their
affair , and also to compliment those en
gaged in the music of the evening.
The Minstrel Is Postponed.
On account of the failure of some mu
sic to arrive , the minstrel show has been
postponed until the 30th , Tuesday even
ing. The work of preparation is going
on with vigor and the performance will
be strictly all right. It should be re
membered that the entertainment is to
be given for the purpose of raising funds
to make some improvements in Longview -
view cemetery. This fact alone ought
to assure a full house. Remember the
change of date from the 24th to the
30th , however.
For Appendicitis.
Drs. Gunn and Kay operated on Ben
Phillippi , a son of A. A. Phillippi , Tues
day of this week , for appendicitis. The
operation was successful , but the result
is yet in doubt on account of the delay
in having the operation performed , as
the condition of the patient at the time
indicated that the operation ought to
have been performed some days before
it was. The boy was first taken sick on

to the dear friends in Frontier county for
all their sympathy and kindness. May
God bless you all is our earnest wish and
prayer. C. P. Viland and Family.

Is Gaining- Popularity.
The session of the Star of Jupiter ,
Monday evening , attracted a large at
tendance , and the interest manifested
was of the livliest nature. There were
several applications for membership and
one initiation. The short literary pro
gram provided after the regular busi
ness proved very entertaining to the
members present and their friends , and
a pleasant social season closed the even
ing very satisfactorily. The order is
gaining in popularity and numbers right
along , and the meetings are increasing
in interest and attendance.
Mashed His Leg Badly.
Gus Budig had one of his legs badly
and painfully mashed , last Saturday ,
while helping to water an engine. Mas
ter Mechanic Archibald was at the throt
tle. While they were taking water the
locomotive suddenly started up , and
Budig's leg was caught between the en
gine and the spout gf the water tank.
Before the engine could be stopped the
leg was badly .mashed , though fortu-
natelv no bones were broken.
Here is a straight tip from a newspa
per called Brains : "There is only one
right way to advertise , and that is to
hammer your name , your location , your
business so constantly , so persistenly , so
thoroughly into the people's heads that
if they walk in their sleep they will con
stantly turn their steps toward your
store. The newspaper is your friend in
spite of your criticism. It helps to
build up the community that supports
you. When the day comes that the
newspapers are dead the people are on
the edge of the grave with nobody to
write the epitaph. "
