EIGHTEENTH YEAR. MeCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. JUNE 16 , 1899. NUMBER 5
Paying a Great Luxury.
At the annual dinner of the North
Side Hoard of Trade , the other night ,
Mr. Jatues G. Cannon , of the Fourth
National bank , preached an affecting
after-dinner sermon on the culpable neg
lect of well-to-do persons to pay their
bills. He raised his voice in behalf of
the butcher , the grocer , the dressmaker ,
the doctor , the dentist , the local trades
man of all who supply our daily needs
and keep the household wheels turning.
< H He said that the prompt payment of
K obligations to such creditors was a duty
'J that was scandalously neglected , to the
V derangement of business , to the distress
of individuals , and the detriment of the
whole community. Persons who hadn't
the money to pay their honest debts he
sorrowed for , but persons who had the
money and didn't pay he denounced.
He told of the dressmaker who tried to
throw herself under the elevated train
because she couldn't pay her bills , and
who turned out to have more money due
her than she owed ; he told of the grocer ,
in a small way , who failed , ( having $5,000
due him for groceries from one family
that lived on Fifth avenue ; he told of
the fashionable dame who owed her
dressmaker $150 , paid $50 on account ,
and went to Europe , leaving the balance
until fall , and leaving the dressmaker to
distressful shifts meantime. He told
also of the physician whose bill went un
paid so very long that at last he remon
strated ; and the lady told him that she
had had the money for it three times
from her husband , but had put it each
time to other uses. Every one hears of
cases of persons who ought to pay their
bills , and could if they chose , and don't.
They are very selfish persons. We are
all selfish when we keep people who
need the money we owe them waiting
while we indulge ourselves in expendi
tures which we ought not to make. It
is a great luxury to pay one's bills
promptly. Strange to say , it is a luxury
\ wuich "cl1 People do not all treat
emselves. The people who spend
3nore than they have are not the only
ones who are slow pay. A good many
persons who could perfectly well pay
promptly don't , either because they
don't like to part with money or else
because the } ' don't care.
Every one who can ought to pay very
promptly. Those who can't should pay
as promptly as they can. Those who do
pay have in the end to pay for those who
don't. To have to pay for those who
can't is a sad duty , but it may be borne.
To have to pay for those who could pay
and won't is intolerable. Harper's
A Fine Rain.
A fine rain prevailed all over this sec
tion of the state , Tuesday night , .56 of
an inch being the registered precipita
tion at this place. The rain extended
from the mountains eastward well into
the state of Nebraska , being heavier in
some localities than at this place. The
17 rain was accompanied by hail , but little
or no damage was occasioned in this
neighborhood. Soul ? small grain will
, be helped considetab yT id all other
crops greatly ; but /quite / an. acreage of
the small grain jvas/damaged already
beyond repair sXAVe'are dulv.jreatful ;
for this indication /hat the\raiii maker
is on duty again , and hope he will do it
some more , rigBt-away.

Pythian Memorial Sunday.
The members of McCook lodge No. 42 ,
Knights of Pythias , observed their Me
morial day , last Sunday afternoon , with
most attractive and impressive particu
lars. Perhaps never before in the his
tory of the order at this place has the
number of knights participating in the
services of the day been so numerous
there were about fifty knights in line ,
in addition to the score or more iu the
Nebraska Brigade bund , which headed
the procession to the cemeteries , Loug-
vievv and Riverview , and the scene was
an inspiring one , attracting much atten
Forming at their castle hall at half
past two o'clock , the organization
marched iu open order , headed by the
uniformed band , to the Methodist
church , where Rev. W. J. Turner of the
Congregational church , a member of the
order , delivered the Memorial sermon.
The church was crowded and the ser
vices were most touching and impress
ive. The reverend gentleman preached
from the text , "No man liveth to him
self , " dwelling most eloquently and
forcefully upon the idea of the brother
hood of mankind and the fatherhood of
God as revealed by the Son. The choir
provided a number of choice selections
in an appreciated manner. The church
was quite handsomely decorated for the
occasion with flowers , and the affair was
withal all that the heart could desire.
The only item of service omitted was
the collection , which was lifted at the
castle hall by the knights in generous
amount and presented to the church ,
whose courtesy they accepted and ap
At the conclusion of the services in
the church the knights formed in line
and marched to the edge of town , from
which point they were transported to
and from the cemeteries , where their
honored dead and the deceased members
of the families of knights were lavishly
decorated with flowers , and the departed
knights with the sprig of distinctive
myrtle. The service of decoration was
performed according to the ritual of the
order , the band assisting in a musical
way. The graves of Knights Samuel
Fisk , Swan C. Nelson and John M.
Stranahan and of the wives of Knights
J. D. Robb , L. W. Stayner and J. A.
Badcon in Longviev cemetery , and of
Knight J. B. McCabe and of the child of
Knight C. W. Barnes in Riverview cem
etery , were all decorated with appropri
Notwithstanding the extreme heat of
the day , quite a number of citizens re
paired to the cemeteries to witness the
ceremonies of the occasion.
After the completion of the ceremonies
of the day , the knights marched to their
castle hall , where they enjoyed the
courtesies of the decoration dav com
mittee in the form of lemonade and
cigars , after which they disbanded , sat
isfied with a tender duty well performed.
Children's Day Exercises.
Exercises for Children's day were held
in both the Methodist and Congregation
al churches , last Sunday evening , the
regular evening service being given up
for that purpose. Large and interested
audiences filled both churches , and all
were highly pleased and entertained.
At the Methodist church the } ' had a
special programme of music , recitations
etc. , in which the children participated
exclusively and with the usual happy re
sults in the presence of a large and well
pleased audience. The decorations pre
pared for Pythian Memorial Sunday
served for this occasion , which was a
successful and happy one.
At the Congregational church the
children had prepared a missionary carol
service , which was one of the most in
structive ever given by the children of
that Sunday-school. The music , decla
mations , costuming and decorations
were each and all very creditable. The
decorations were for the most part patri
otic , old glory , bunting etc. , cleverly
and effectively arranged , together with
some palms , potted plants and cut flow
ers making up the simple but pretty
decorations of the evening. A special
collection was lifted for the Congrega
tional Sunday-school publishing society ,
an organization which is doing splendid
work in the home mission field.
Schley at the Exposition.
Arrangements for making July 3d ,

sion fee to see. The buildings are chock
full of fine exhibits. The Indian Con

'Now and Then. '
