SSff * 5 ? * SEVENTEENTH YEAR. MeCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. JUNE 24,1898. NUMBER 6 The Children's Day. ! "Lust Sunday was Children's Day wit ; the Congregational Sunday-school am the evening service was given up entirely to the children and the rendering of th special program prepared by the little ones of the school. "The Little Builders" was the title o the simple but pretty cantata renderet by the children , and the service was en joyed as much by the older ones who were present in large numbers as it was by the children. The singing , recita tions and action of the children were such as to interest and cause all.present joy and pleasure. ' The church wasentrancingly decoratec : with flowers and national flags , and the efiect'was simply charming in the lavish . and lovely display of cut flowers of main kinds , palms , etc. At the close of the service two little girls gathered a collection in flower baskets for the benefit of the Congrega tional' Publishing House , the proceeds being devoted to the purchasing of Sun- day-schodl supplies for schools that are not able to bear the expense of buying 'the same themselves. A liberal collec tion iv'as ' raised for this laudable purpose. A McCook Boy First. At the commencement exercises of the Northwestern university at Chicago , last -week , a McCook boy , JolnrF. Cordeal , teed 'first in his class in the law depart ment , numbering over one hundred graduates. He was one of the three who secured prizes for theses read. The sub ject of his thesis was "The Status of the Indian Tribes of the United States , " and the prize received is an edition of the ' American and English Encyclopedia of ; iLaw , " 'a very valuable and latest edition of that standard series of law books. THE TRIHUNE feels proud to learn that a McCook boy should achieve so much distinction , knowing the recipi ent to be in every way worthy of the honors bestowed. The New War Loan" .

The Misses Doan gave a farewell re ception , Monday evening , in honor o the Misses Gibbons , which was one o the most delightful social events of the. summer containing but one element o pain the knowledge that the affair cel ebrated the fact that the Misses Gibbons were about to leave the city and take up their home in Orleans , their former home. The txvo score of young people of the city who participated in the reception are a unit that the occasion was a very swell affair. The Misses Gibbons have been popu lar members of the young society of the city and they will be missed from those circles.

You can't afford to miss the McCook : elebration , this year. The Need is Felt. t As the Fourth of July approaches the 3eed of a suitable grove is felt , each pear , and remarked about. THE TRIE- LINE learns that there is a move on foot o secure this desideratum , and that an effort may be made to secure the fine ivooded tract surrounding the water works plant for grove or park purposes. Ibis would make a splendid place for . such gatherings as picnics and celebra tions , and we hope that the deal can and be made. It would not require a arge expenditure to provide excellent . jrove privileges and advantages. a ; Wedding Bells.

' To the Editor of THE TRIBUNE : The lommencemeut exercises of The North- o restern University of Evanston held on he evening of June i6th , at the Audi- orium in Chicago were of more than > assing interest to McCook boys. One of their friends , John F. Cordeal , vas among the graduates of the law chool and achieved during his course here a remarkable record. Entering the university with no other ducational preparation than that of a horough home training seconded by his > atience and industry Mr. Cordeal found liuiself in class with men who had al- * eady graduated with honors at univer- ities like Yale and Harvard and Prince- on. Taking his work with classmates rained at the best schools of this coun- ry the McCook boy not only held his tl wn , but , without thought of competi- ion or striving for place , actually passed o lis fellow workers and finished with the g ] loners of his class. Not only this ; but he did the regular hree years work in two years and was iven the highest markings on examina- ions for the final year in the whole chool. In the examination on "Trusts , " I le received the only "A , " in the class ; here was but one "A" given the pre- ious year. A thesis on "The Tribal Relations of he Cherokee Nation with the United States Government , " won for him the nest valuable prize awarded , The Eng- ish and American Encyclopaedia of vaw , in some thirty-eight volumes. This record is now of less importance o Mr. Cordeat than those ambitious toys of McCook who are apt naturally o repine at their lack of advantages. t is safe to say that none of them enjoy ewer than this McCook boy did , and the nstance only proves , after all , that the .nibitiou and the determination are the mly absolutely essential factors to sue- fi ess. I believe there are more boys in Red Villow county who will be heard from n their due time ; certainly this case , nay well inspire them to work unremit- ingly for success. FRANK. H. SPEARMAN. Chicago , June 20 , 1898. Those "Uncle Sam" portfolios are a hing of beauty and a joy forever. You ihould avail yourself of the opportunity o buy one.

Last Sunday was a day of great mo ment and large interest to the members of St. Patrick's church , being the impress ive occasion of the confirmation of a class of fifty by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Bonacum of Lincoln. The scene was deeply touching and solemn , the church being crowded to witness the same. Confirmation was administered by the bishop and Rev. J. W. Ilickey was cele brant of the Mass. Special music was rendered for the memorable occasion. The altar decorations and in fact the entire interior of the church added to the attractiveness and impressiveness of the sacred scene and act. Shipments In the Year 1897. The shipments of stock , etc. , from Red Willow county for the year 1897 were as follows : Cattle , 93 cars , 2,232 headhogs ; , 448 cars , 30,464 head ; horses and mules , 4 cars. 80 head ; wheat , 468 cars , 312,000 Jtishels ; corn , 21 cars , 15,000 bushels , rhe shipments from McCook during 1897 vere : 489 cars in total , of which 48 cars vere cattle , 127 hogs , 183 wheat , 55 rye , 56 miscellaneous. Car receipts were 661 n all , of which 84 were lumber , 276 coal , 280 miscellaneous. By far the largest ingle shipment will be seen to be coal , vhich makes up almost half of the total eceipts at this station. I. O. O. F. Memorial Day. The Methodist church was crowded , ast Sunday morning , when Rev. J. A. Badcon delivered the I. O. O. F. Me- iiorial Day sermon before the members > f the local lodge. A strong sermon was elivered , special music sung and the hurch was appropriately decorated for he event. After the services at the church the jraves of the following deceased Odd ? ellows were decorated with flowers : C. T. Brewer , and F.V. . Jeffries. Also , he grave of the wife of Brother Badcon. The Imperial Brigade.
