OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
IN view of the fact tlmt the na
tional convention is approaching ,
it may not be amiss to urge the
organization and reorganization of
Republican clubs all over the state.
Nebraska should furnish a large
percentage of the attendance upon
the convention , not to speak of a
deal of enthusiasm.
COLONEL COLE of the Culberk-
son Era makes bold to claim that
he can discern aliawk from a haud-
saw , but that with the assistance
of his wise office cat he is not
able to tell whether THE TRIBUNE
is joking , roasting or what ? And
concludes all the argument with
the statement that if .Colonel Bryan
is a colonel he hain't. Colonel
Cole wants to let his office boy
operate on his think-tank with the
shooting-stick and mallet. THE
TRIBUNE never jokes , roasts 01
whats. So there now.
THE average Democratic poli
tician is peculiarly conducted.
He is already intimating what he
will do after this war has been
fought out to a finish. This war ,
he is compelled to admit , is justifi
able , but he is frightfully fearful
that the Republican party , through
its president and its congress and
the cabinet will not be able to take
care of the results of the war ,
which they feel will be victorious
and glorious. They fear that Un
cle Sam will become grasping and
want to hold the earth and the
fullness thereof , through the Re
publican party. It is not so much
a reflection on the patriotism and
enlightenment of the Republican
party as it is characteristic of the
ultimate asininity of the average
Tramps and peddlers are becom

Mrs. Ariminta Ford , a former
resident of this preciuct , is now

ing near Valley Center , a suberb
of Wichita , Kansas.
Thomas H. Fowler is the only
person who has enlisted for the
war from this precinct. He is now
at Fort Omaha , in the Third regi
ment , company "L" . It is now
thought that the Third regiment
will go to the island of Porto Rico ,
and. that Colonel Bryan will be
under Brigadier General Lee.
Crops are fine in this precinct.
Laura Woodworth is staying
with Mrs. Byfield a week or two.
Mr. Helm makes daily trips to

Bee swarming is in season and
three families in our precinct are
kept busy , namely , Mr. Baker's ,
Mr. Helm's and Mr. Byfield's.
The promise for a honey crop is
very good despite the late spring.
There are some aching hearts
in our midst caused by the de
parture of the soldier boys. Lewis
Longnecker and Albert Helm were
among the number who left Sun
day night. May they all return
to .our neighborhood as well as
when they left , is the prayer of

To NORTH COLEMAN : You can
scarce expect a farmer like me , To
be up to date writing poetry ;
There is work this time of year to
do , And , besides , this war makes
us feel blue. But one thing we
can explain That is we've had
plenty of rain. No more sighing
about a drouth , For the rain has
closed every dry-weather mouth.
The heading grain jiods to and

fine , And everything else inHhat
same line , And the only cause we
have to complain About is this ter
rible war with Spain. We can see
the ships , in our dreams at night ,
Hunting for Spaniards that are
out of sight ; We think of Gervera ,
Severa , Thevera , and wonder which
to say , And it was San Juan yes
terday but San Wan today. We
hear about Manila which lies be
yond the sea , And we are prone to
wonder where that Spanish fleet
can be ; We hear that General
Shafter at Tampa is delayed , That
the war and navy departments his
starting day have stayed. Wei also
learn that the wise board of strat
egy , Is constantly in session in
Washington , D. C. ; But what they
have done is something we don't
know , Though some people say
they make things go. They had
ibetter take an anesthetic aud lay

Several of the.Ridgeites went to
McCook , Sunday of last week , to
see the soldiers go through. To
some of us it was a , sad sjght , re
calling scenes of the dark' days of
' 61 , and the boys did. not look as
if they were out for a picnic. We
asked some of them if they did not
wish they were back at home , but
the'reply always was "No. " One
boy said his father fought four
years in the Confederate army , but
with a look of pride he said "I am
a United States soldier myself. "
I said to one , "You all look like a
crowd of boys. Do you suppose
you can fight when the time
comes ? " ' 'Why , of course we can.
Ihe First Tennessee can hold the
Philippines , for , you remember ,
David was but a boy , yet he slew
Soliah. " I asked , "What in the
world are you going to do with
those hatpins ? " and the reply was ,
; clf the government don't hurry up
ind send us equipment we are go
ing to storm Manila t with hat
pins. " But seeing them vdid not
; nake us enthusiastic over the war.
We thought of the mothers at
dome who were no doubt wonder
ing where their boys were and if
ill was well with them. We thought
Df the long , hard journey to a for-
3ign land before them ; of the many
dangers on land and sea that they
must necessarily encounter before
ihey again see their homes away
lown in Tennessee , if they ever
jet back. One other thought pre
sented itself to us and it was this :
Cs this a war for God and home
ind native land ? or is it a war
Drought on through the rashness
ind shortsightedness of the men
vhom we elected to make lavvs for
is ? Be this as it may , we are
sorry for the poor fellows that
lave to be huddled together in
ihips in that hot climate and sorry
hat all the men who were so anx-
ous for this war are not in the
rent ranks 'ready to back their
pords with their deeds.
