And some superb Crane's luperfiue paper and envelopes at a price mheard of in this city. The present is as representative an ad- uinistration as McCook has ever had or s ever likely to have. It represents as nuch brains , business sense and good irder or as any administration the city las ever had. And THE TRIBUNE cx- tects the voters to say the same on next Tuesday. There is a diversity of opinion as to ust what Colonel Corwin intends to aake of the enclosure north of the Com- tiercial house : A deer park , a jack-rab- lit preserve or what-not. The colonel limself is undecided whether to hold a ircus or a Sunday-school. Cash will buy more of the very best tnplements in the world at Cochrau & io.'s , this spring , than have ever been old before anywhere. And they are oming in now by the car-load.

In every branch of hardware business ochran & Co. lead the procession in ariety , quantity and quality , and nat- rally enough in price as well. The Temiesseeaus at the opera house might. It is claimed for them that ley are better than ever , and they are [ ways good. Paint is to a house what clothing is to ie body. It is just as important.
