"Your Eye In Mine. "
'My son Timotheus , when you have
learned the art of' saying , "Your eye in
TOine , " with overwhelming power and
all-persuasiveness , and can make the
< lear people do what they would not , and
'not do what they would , witli amusing
'unanimity , all the while making mon
keys of the same most comprehensively ,
without money and without price , 3ou
can wear diauionds as large as hens'
reggs and as dazzling as an arc light.
'Yea , you can wear the ' sparkers" with
as much abandon as a Sanioan belle
does her beads , swell clothes galore and
an air distingue all your own. Beside
this free and unlimited coinage of silver
eeems as nothing , for you have a snap , a
cinch dead-sure thing be-
Uead-pipe , a - -
'yond a peradventure. Go to , now , and
"remember his ways and mark his gait ,
' forgetting not his magic motions and
'Dick Dead-eye optics , and you will have
'bank notes even as some people have
'baled ' hay.
Good Nerve Saved Him.
While assisting in doing some switch
ing at Stratum , last Friday afternoon ,
- Freight Brakeman J. W. Bates was the
victim of an accident which cost him
'Iiis good right foot. The engine was
'Tunning backward , with Bates standing
on the box-frame of the rear wheel of
' the tender and holding to the rod which
operates the coupling attachment. His
'right foot slipped off of the frame and
winder the wheel , which quickly ground
" the member up in horrible shape , neces
sitating the amputation of the leg mid-
"way between the ankle and knee. The
injured man was promptly brought to
McCook and Dr. J. A. Gunn performed
the amputation. Bales' good nerve and
strong arm alone saved him from being
nlrawn under the engine and ground to
Colonel Mitchell , Bum Barrister.
Colonel Mitchell is as "bum" a lawyer
as he is art amusingly pathetic failure as
' a newspaperman. He cannot be safely
' taken seriously in either case. He
should have a surgical operation per
formed on his "think tank" before de
livering himself of any legal opinions ,
especially on the point of printers' fees.
-A little advice from some one who does
know a hawk from a hand-saw , legally ,
' might save him the disgrace of malic
iously libeling others , and might possi
bly save him the humiliation of so fre
quently exhibiting his ignorance of
matters pertaining to his own craft even.
Repair the Bridges.
There are two bridges in road district
,30 which require attention. We are in
formed that no overseer has qualified for
that district. Some person in the neigh-
'borbood of the road leading west -from
"the Carruth farm to the Evans farm
should regair them and present bills to
the county commissioners for the work
-and necessary lumber. This matter
should not be neglected until some body
is uurt'aiiuj j"t for damages has to be
5net by the authorities. Fi.vie bridges ,
"Our Boys" at Culbertson.
Last Saturday evening a number of
. young men of the city were entertained
'by the Culbertson girls in fine style.
Two carriage loads of the boys drove up
to the city at the mouth of the French-
< oiau , returning home , the following day.
The boys have uttered "all colors" of
compliments about the Culbertson girls

Those present were : O. B. Thorgrimson ,
C , N. Whittaker , C. C. Northrup , Ray
-McCarl , Roy Smith , T. E. McCarl , J. A.
Seyrer , Ernest Cordeal.
About 25 per cent of the business men
af McCook are heroically trying to do
what all the business and professional
men of the city ought to be doing
inaking it possible for newspapers to be
printed here by supporting the press.
The 75 per cent have no objection ,
Jioxvever , to enjoying and profiting by
the trade drawn by the enterprise and
sjenerous spirit of the 25 per cent.
We All Feel Better.
The fine rains of the close of last and
tSrst of the present week have been very
"reassuring and encouraging to the farmer -
er , starting the spring crops out in fine
shape. The grass , trees and flowers
Slave all been largely helped , and all
Mature has put on a brighter hue of
. green on account of the welcome
showers and warmer weather which fol
lowed the moisture.
