EIGHTEENTH YEAR MeCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING.'SEPTEMBER 8 , 1899. NUMBER 17
Was a Splendid Success.
The entertainment given-by the chil
lren of the public schools and friends o
the system on the lawn at A. Itarnctt'i
home , last Friday evening , was one o
the most artistic and delightful affair :
< o which are people have paid tribute ir
a long while. The evening was favor
able for an out-of-doors eiiterlainuicnl
and the attendance was large and untis
ually enthusiiibtic and generous will

The baud was not able to give the
overture selections announced on the
programme on account of the absence of
light , but made good its part of the pro
gramme by rendering a number of popu
lar marches which the members were
able to play without their music , with
the usual , happy success.
The male quartette made such a hit
that the boys were unable to escape un
til they had sung both numbers on the
programme. They are artists and de
servedly popular artists , too.
Elsie Campbell's song and dance was
one of the most acceptable features of
the programme. Elsie is graceful and
composed and sings nicely.
The drill and dance by fourteen young
ladies were beautiful spectacular num
bers and greatly pleased the audience.
The High school quartette made a
favorable impression in rendering "Swift
as a Bird. "
"We are Waiting , Dewey , Waiting , "
by the little boys , went right to the
spot. The title and the little fellows
are both winners.
The little girls appeared to charming
advantage in their action song "Pinki-
ty. Winkity , We "
Blanche McCarl always sings sweetly ,
and this occasion was no exception to
the general rule , as she presented "Just
as the Sun Went Down. "
In fine the entire programme reflected
to the high credit of the director , Mrs.
A. P. Bonnet , who is to be congratulated.
One of the most pleasing features was
the "Quilting Bee , " a character sketch
that caught the popular fancy enthusi
Refreshments were served during the
programme , ices , ice cream and cake
being the menu ; and from this source ,
too , quite a revenue was derived , which ,
together with the money received from
the sale of tickets to the entertainment ,
will go far in putting the music fund in
healthy condition for the coming term.
About $54 was realized and , though
the expenses were considerable , between
35 and $40 was placed to the credit of
the fund , enough to purchase necessary
material and get the work of instruction
in music well started in the schools.
The management desires to express
its thanks to all who in any way assisted
in making the affair so pleasant and
profitable. A word of apology and ex
planation is due in regard to refresh
ments. Through some misunderstand
ing less than half the cakes so kindly
promised were received , and hence many
were disappointed in not being served
with all the refreshments ordered.

AN EQUINE PARADOX.
Sixty-one Horses Acting at One
Time In One
Among the hundreds of star features
associated with Ringling Brothers' circus
this season , nothing has attracted more
attention or excited more admiring com
ment than the marvelous performances
of O'Brien's school of high-bred equities.
Embraced in this equine company are
sixty-one of the handsomest horses ever
seen in a circus ring ; a fact which all
who witness the performances of Ring-
ling Brothers' circus when it exhibits in
McCook , Monday , Sept. iSth , will be
able to attest. Three features of this
great act are particularly notable : the
large number of horses , the greatest
company of equines ever trained in this
way , the brilliancy and costly magnifi
cence of the trappings , and the immense
amount of paraphernalia used in the
production. The display is given in the
middle ring. This arena is especially
constructed for the act , and is carried
by the show. Instead of the usual circle
of earth , there is a wooden parapet , the
top of which forms a narrow circular
platform enclosing the arena. In the
center of the ring is a succession of cir
cular stages , rising like terraces one
above the other , and ending in a lofty
pedestal. The director takes his station
in the arena A signal is given , and a
handsome thoroughbred , with arched
neck and waving plumes , canters into
the ling. This proud specimen of horse-
hood , the matchless charger , "Silver
King , " is the avant courier of sixty
beautiful equines , gorgeously capari
soned , but unrestrained by rein or bridle ,
which approach with the whirl and sweep
of a cavalry charge , and then , suddenly
halting in their niad flight , line up iu
solid column , awaiting with proud impa
tience the first orders of their iiuplicilly-
Dbeyed trainer. The performance that
follows staggers even the evidences of
the senses. The equine actors , without
the slightest hesitation or prompting ,
execute the most difficult evolutions ,
dance , pirouette , form colossal tableaux ,
and go through the movements of a dif
ficult military march. Then a scoie or
more of the horses take their places on
the parapet of the ring ; others group
themselves upon the ciictilar central
stages. At the apex is the shapely "Sil-
ier King. " Vaulting upon the back of
this beautiful equine , and raising the
superb animal until he seems to be
poised in air , the trainer nods his head.
distantly , the great company of horses
is in motion. Some run to the right ,
athers to the left , but without leaving
the narrow platforms. With their sleek
: oats gleaming , with their radianlly-
leautiful trappings glittering in the
light , and the waving of their var-col- :
Dred plumes , they form a picture of in
describable beauty , lovely 'n ' its coloring ,
find thrilling in its dramatic effect. This
finale never fails to create a sensation.
O'Brien's famous sixty-one horse act is
Duly one of scores of features with this
jreat show which presents the finest
zoological display , the most complete
circus performance , the most historic
hippodrome , and the finest free street
paade ever seen on earth.
The Football Game.
Twenty-two husky lads representing
the Athletic club and B. & M. football
teams chased and pushed and panted
aver the gridiron in the ball park , Labor
lay afternoon , through two twenty-min
ute halves in a desperate struggle for su
premacy , aud the Athletic club came off
victorious by a score of 5 to o.
The .ailroad boys won the toss aud
50 ! the kick-off , the Athletic club de-
teuding the east goal. By a couple of
jCiiniuiages and an end luu the ball was
: arred back into railroad territory , and
: ontiuued line bucking and long gains
irouud the right end by Fowler and
rroth finally forced ( he ball over the
line foi a touch-down jv'st a few minutes
ijefore the call of time. McCarl failed
to kick goal and the half c'osed with the
score 5 to o.
In the second half the ball was kept
in railroad territory all the time and just
before the half closed was within a few
yards of the line when Cordeal , by a
beautiful punt , got it back to the forty-
yard line , where the teams were forming
for a scrimmage when the game ended.
Thomson and Moore of the railroad
team retired from the game on account
of injuries , Thomson returning later as
did also Substitute Knobbs by consent
of Captain Fowler of the opposing team.
J. R. Easley was referee , H. C. Geode ,
