. , -r SEVENTEENTH YEAR McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING , MAY" 12 , 1899. NUMBER 52 "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 jpieces. 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 , -liowi "Our Boys" at Culbertson.
