Y ' J SEVENTEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING , NOVEMBER 25 , 1898. NUMBER 28 The Yellow and Black Won. 'The yellow and black of the Railroad Boys football club and the scarlet and cream of the High School team met on the gridiron , Thanksgiving afternoon , and after two heroic halves victory -perched upon the banner of the yellow .ami black. The score stood six to noth ing and was made in the beginning of the first half , the Railroad boys scoring on the kick-off by rushing the ball over the line by superior weight. In the rest of the game the High School boys , though much lighter , played in Railroad territory most of the time The proba bilities are that if the High School lads liad entered the first half with as much -spirit and as fearlessly as they played the Test of the game , no score would have been made. The game was witnessed by quite a number of people with keen interest and vociferous enthusiasm. An admission fee of 15 cents was charged to the grounds and 25 cents to the grand stand. The game is declared a very sat isfactory one. Albert O'Nell Severely Injured. Brakeman J. Albert O'Neil was severe ly injured , last Saturday about eleven o'clock , while switching some freight cars onto the side-track at Stratton. He was on top of a car giving signals , when a. sudden and perhaps unexpected move ment of the train threw him to the ground. His left foot was badly mashed and lorn by a wheel , one bone of his right leg was broken and the right ankle dislocated. His wounds are severe and it will take a long while before he will foe able to be about again. The injured inan was brought to his home here on .No. 6 , on the afternoon of the same day , amU he is receiving careful surgical ser vices. It was at first thought that his left foot would have to be amputated , hut such action has been deferred in the liope that the member may be saved. At this writing he is getting on as well as can be expected from such severe in juries. All hope for his rapid and com plete recovery. Another Accident. About one o'clock , Monday morning , Brakeman William Washburn was badly liurt while switching freight cars at Or leans. It is thought that he must have slipped and fallen between the cars. His right foot was badly bruised and torn , the big toe mashed , and one bone of the same leg broken above the ankle. He was brought to his home in our city , on No. i , the same morning , and every surgical attention is being given. His iujuries are confined to the right foot and leg and are not so severe as those of JJrakeuian O'Neil. His recovery is ex pected to be correspondingly faster. Iike that of his fellow-brakeman , the accident is deplored and his complete return to health and usefulness is earn estly wished for. A Personal Convenience. An individual postoffice box , call , lock or combination , is a comfort and convenience that you cannot purchase in any other department of life for so small a. sum of money. Call boxes are only 25c. for three months , while lock and combination boxes , ( which are much preferable , inasmuch as you can get your mail at any time the postoffice lobby is openare SDC. per quarter.

Willie Free , a young lad of about twelve summers , whose home is overdn Hitchcock county , has the runaway hab it in virulent form. He came to the home farm of John Lorenz up in Coleman - man precinct , Monday night of this week , in a distressing condition on ac count of the cold and hunger while out on one of his runaway pranks , and was taken in and cared for by Mr. Lorenz until Wednesday , when the lad was brought to McCook in the hope that some disposition could be made of him , as Mr. Lorenz is not able to care for the boy , who will give no information as to where he lives. From other parties we learn that he lives just across the line in Hitchcock county and that he is in the habit of indulging in these pranks every now and then. It is intimated that the lad is not any brighter than he ought to be. At any rate he is not ex hibiting very good sense in such foolish performances as the one just recorded of him. The Best And Cheapest. The New York Independent , the lead ing weekly newspaper of the world , and one whose pages exercise the widest in fluence , is entering upon its fiftieth year of publication The Independent em phasizes its fiftieth year by changing its form to that of a magazine , and by re ducing its annual subscription price from $3.00 to $2.00 ; single copies from 10 to 5 cents. The Independent in its new form will print 3,640 pages of reading matter per year at a cost to subscribes of $2.00 , while the prominent magazines , which sell for $4.00 a year , print only 2,000 pages. The subscriber to The In dependent gets 82 per cent more of equally good reading matter at one-half the cost ! It is not only the leading fam ily weekly newspaper but by far the cheapest and best. A free specimen copy may be had by addressing The In dependent , 130 Fulton Street , New York. Oppose the Scheme. The merchants of McCook properly and courageously believe that the mer chants of Omaha should be satisfied with the golden harvest they have reaped from the late exposition and should not encourage the proposition to continue the exposition through another year. THE TRIBUNE heartily commends the unanimous action of our merchants in expressing in no uncertain terms their opposition to the proposed scheme of further continuing the exposition and hopes that they will unitedly and effect ively urge their opposition thereto. The proposition is conceived in selfishness and not in patriotic desire to advertise the west , and in view of the facts and under the circumstances should be dis couraged. An Aged Lady Cone. After a long and painful illness , Mrs. Mary Mugan passed away on Monday morning at the advanced age of 80 years. The remains were shipped to Boone , Iowa , on No. 6 , Monday night , for in terment , Miss Mary Mugau , daughter of the deceased , and Conductor T. A.

T P Beall of the Chi is- tian church delivered the sermon , laying especial stress on the idea that while this is a national festival of thanksgiving and praise , it is essentially a day of thanksgiving and praise for the Ameri can home and fireside. The scripture lesson was read from Deuteronomy by Rev. Howard Stoy of the Episcopal church. The invocation was uttered by Rev W. J. Turner of the Congregational church. Rev. J A Badcon of the Meth odist church voiced the benediction. Rev. T. L Ketuian of the Baptist church was in charge The Baptist choir fur nished appropriate and excellent music for the occasion , which only lacked at tendance to have been all that could be expected or desired. It is encouraging , however , to note that the annual attend ance upon Thanksgiving services is grad ually increasing , and we hope some day to be able to announce a creditable gathering for numbers present. A Little Blizzard. Commencing earlv Sunday ex-ening , a blizzard prevailed all over this section of the state until Monday night. The cold north wind blew a forty-knot gait and made life a burden to man and beast. There was a slight fall of snow the while. There were no casualties nor was there loss of stock in cases where adequate protection was afforded from the terrible wind. In the city the electric light wires suf fered some and one of the brick chim neys on Colonel Easterday's residence was blown over. The temperature early in the morning of Monday was ten degrees above zero , while on Tuesday morning the zero mark was almost reached , although the day turned out to be bright and pleasant. The storm withal was one of the se verest we ever experience at this time of the year and delayed traffic on the rail road a number of hours and made all transportation business difficult and hazardous. Two Were Injured. Dr. J. A. Gunn was summoned in haste to Palisade , Wednesday morning , to ren der surgical services to members of the Mansfield family , farmers in that section , three of whom were involved in a serious runaway , Tuesday night. The father , a man close to 70 years of age , had one of his legs broken in two places between the knee and ankle. His injuries are quite serious in view of his age. His son had his right shoulder dislocated.- The little four-year old grandson escaped without injury , being rescued from under the over turned wagon box , yelling vo ciferously. The accident was caused by the break ing of a bridle. The horses were arc- tached io a lumber wagon and ran over a steep bank. The doctor left here at three in the morning and returned home on the even ing of the same day. Her Birthday. Wednesday was Edna Yarger's birth day and on the evening of that day she celebrated the event with a party of most enjoyable particulars. Refreshments were served. A joyous social hour was spent. Numerous tokens of the day were given and the occasion passed as merrily and happily as the buoyant and untranitneled spirit of youth could make it. The following is the numerous list of guests : Blanche McCarl , Lina Mick , May Hileman , Nettie Dutton , Lillie Bur nett , Lizzie Anton , Ethel Pope , Bessie Jones , Virgie Ludwick , Pearl Brown , Ethel Patterson , Kate Garrard. Kenneth Welles , Eddie Badcon , Albert Berry , Albert Thorgrimson , George Campbell , Bruce Campbell , Arthur Golfer , Louis Johnson , Glenn Hupp and James Borne- man. An Untimely Death.

Burns of Red Willow precinct and was married to Alonzo L. Miller in February of 1896. The remains were laid away in River- view cemetery of this city on Thursday afternoon. The young husband and relatives of the departed have the sincerest of human sympathy in the untimely death of their dear one.

The county judge authorized and mar ried Thomas Kelley and Luella Gam's , both of Jennings , Kansas , Wednesday of this week. The postoffice money order is growing in popularity in McCook. There is no safer , cheaper or more convenient way of sending money. We believe that among the things to be thankful for you should remember that \ou have the privilege of buying Sheridan coal at Bullard's. The. Sullivan and Kilrain theatrical company has written the opera house management here for terms and descrip tions of the hall. They want January 2ist. Get your share of the trade. One of the best means of securing it is by judic ious advertising. Observe that we say iudicious advertising. It's the only kind that pays. On account of the impossibility o keeping the buildings warm , Monday , no school was held during the day. The high , cold wind made the buildings un tenantable. We still have a few of those "Uncle Sam's Navy" portfolios in stock. They are ten cents each or the entire series of twelve for one dollar. You should se cure a set. Of course we have them Canon City , i | Maitlaud , lump and nut , and Sheridan ! ] in the soft coals and a full stock of botlt eastern and western hard coals ; try us. W. C. BULLARD & Co. Business was quite generally suspended in the city , Thanksgiving , during a good part of the day. Private dinner parties were numerous as usual.
