! \ r > - , EIGHTEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 2 , 19OO NUMBER 38 Horace Easterday Laid at Rest. A telegram from Suniner , Washing ton , last Saturday night , announced the death of Horace H. Easterday , on that date in that town a suburb of Tacoma. However , the sad news did not become current until Sunday morning. Though not unexpected the depressing news came to a large and devoted circle of friends in the city and county as a personal loss indeed , seldom , if ever , in the history of McCook has the great and sympa thetic heart of this entire community gone out in tenderest expressions of sorrow and regret like in this instance. At the request of the deceased , the re mains were brought heie for interment , arriving in the city , Wednesday night on No. 3 , being accompanied by the sorrow ing wife and a brother , Joe H. Easterday of Tacoma , also L. C. Dole of our city , who attended him in his last days. An other brother , Phil S. Easterday of Tecumseh - cumseh , joined the party at Lincoln , where they were met by a delegation from the Masonic bodies of our city , Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Bronson , J.W. Hupp and G. R. Johnson. The remains were at once taken to the Congregational church , where the church parlor had been es pecially arranged , with reference to a home-like appearance , for their recep tion. A lodge detail served as a guard of honor during the night. The funeral services occurred in the church on Thursday afternoon at 2:30. the services being conducted by the St. John commandery of this city , assisted by other Masonic bodies. The services were most impressive and beautiful the ritualistic product of the great Masonic order. The sermon fell from the lips of Rev. Turner in most eloquent and tender terms paying a just and full tribute to the memory of one of the most superior souls and manliest men it has ever been our pleasure to know. The church was inadequate to the demand for seats , in dicating in an unmistakably way the wide popularity of him who has gone on before. The remains were escorted to Longview cemetery , where in the use of the ritual of theorder they were tenderly and with loving hands consigned to Mother Earth. A large cortege of sorrowing rowing friends followed the body to its last resting place and paid a last fond tribute to the memory of a dear friend and brother. The floral offering was superb , a cross , cross and crown and a star were among the special designs ; besides there were palms , lilies , carnations , roses , etc. , iu profuse loveliness. The sympathy of a large and loyal friendship goes out without measure to the bereaved and disconsolate wife and to the parents and brothers. [ HORACE H. EASTERDAY was born in Nokomis , Illinois , December 27 , 1858. Came to Tecumseh , Nebraska , in 1871 , and to McCook in i883entering a home stead in Coleman precinct in October of that year. In 1885 he went to Red Cloud and spent three or four years there in the service of the Burlington in that depot. Returning to McCook in 1888 or 1889 , he associated himself with Bert Potter in the feed business , retiring from that in a few years to devote himself ex clusively to buying and shipping grain , which business he carried on until his death. He was a student in the State university as a chum of Congressman Dave Mercer of Omaha and Judge Allen Field of Lincoln , but was not graduated. Fighting disease and the inevitable cou rageously for years , he met the grim de stroyer unafraid at the end. Peace to his ashes. ] RESOLUTIONS. Whereas , It has pleased the Supreme Ruler of the Universe to call Sir Knight Horace H.

After hearing the paper of General Passenger Agent Buchanan of the Elk- honi railway on the subject of immigra tion at the late state press association it was determined by the association to try one suggestion made by that gentleman , namely , that each newspaper in the state , every week during the year 1900 , shall print a statement from some farmer in that county , giving the date of his ar rival in the county ; where he came from ; what he had when he arrived , and what he now has. Doubtless this idea , car ried out , will result in great good to the state of Nebraska , in inducing settlers to come here from eastern states to occupy and cultivate our hundreds of thousands of vacant and untilled lands. Many thousands of farmers came to this state years ago with nothing but an honest , sturdy purpose and strong hands and heart , who are now well-to-do , nay fair ly rich. This can be done again in thousands of cases , and THE TRIBUNE proposes , if the farmers of Red Willow county will do their part by sending us in the reports , to do its utmost to induce a large settlement among us in South western Nebraska whose resources have not yet been developed in any consider able measure. Farmers , send us in-your reports as indicated above. Your name need not be printed , if you do not desire it shall be. January Report.
