EIGHTEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING , MARCH 3O , 19OO. NUMBER
Were Highly Successful.
The three millinery establishments of
our city , those of Miss Sara Lowtnan ,
Mrs. M. M. Delhunty and Mrs. E. E.
Saddler , held their spring openings ,
Wednesday evening of this week-and it
is harmonious with the facts to slate that
they were the swellest affairs of the
kind , perhaps , ever attempted in our
city , or in this section of the state in late
years.
In the tastefulness and elaboration of
decoration of stores and in the variety
and richness and stylishness of the dis
play of millinery wares , the openings of
Wednesday evening have never been ex
celled in our city , if indeed they have
ever been equaled.
The several establishments were
charmingly decorated for the occasion
, and the displays of pattern and trimmed
" hats and of the endless variety of fancies
and wares that go to make up a stylish
and seasonable creation for the feminine
head and fancy were uncommonly lavish
and attractive each establishment vie-
ing with the other in the artistic
uniqueness of detail and in the large
profusion of exhibit.
At each store the proprietors were as
sisted in the exhibition of their latest
and most stylish productions of the sea
son by corps of especially , handsomely i
and elegantly gowned assistants indeed
the triune affair was characterized by the
presence of many elegant costumes and
radiant"women. .
In two instances the establishments
of Mrs. Delhunty and Mrs. Saddler
secluded orchestras added a mellow
flood of subdued harmony to the de
lightful and brilliant occasions. Mrs.
Saddler also served ice cream during the
evening to her callers.
All three establishments were crowded
with delighted visitors during the even
ing , quite a number of ladies being
drawn hither from surrounding towns.
The ladies are to be congratulated up
on the fact that their tireless efforts were
appreciated and that success in over
flowing measure crowned and rewarded
them.
The Crocus Gown.
They do say , that the up-to-date
woman without a crocus gown is not in
it. These gowns are described as being
"creations" not dresses. They are
flower-like affairs in pale lavender and
yellow and light tan and gray and rose
and soft cadet blue. They are made of
soft , filmy things like crepe and grena
dine and silk poplin and nun's veiling.
Can be worn almost anywhere and can
be trimmed with everything under the
sun from chiffon and sequins to panne
velvet ; and they are made in every pos
sible fashion. And oh , such "dreams"
of hats as can be worn with these filmy
creations !
So Her Friends May Know.
Mrs. A. W. Campbell of Box Elder ,
who went to Omaha , early in. February ,
to undergo an operation for the removal
of cancers , is now at the home of a
daughter , Mrs. Richey , in Wympre ,
slowly recovering. At the operation ,
February 7th , three cancerous growths
were successfully removed , from.breast ,
shoulder and arm ; and in two weeks the
wounds were all well healed over. The
wounds still give her some pain and she
is unable to dress herself. Mrs. Camp
bell expects to remain with the daughter
until more fully recovered.

A. McMiLLEN , Druggist.
The Republicans of McCook are par
ticularly happy , this year , in their nom
inations for the city ticket. The nomi
nees are all good and well qualified men ,
representing the various branches of the
party in the city. Personal qualification
and wise party selection ought to make
the result certain.
"Honest John" has had a large , sub
divided display enclosure built in his
front window to allow of a better and

chandise. Then , there is the item of
cleanliness and protection subserved.

every idea of harmony in colors , we can't

harmonious blending of colors and de
sign , we can please you and at the

Wall Paper and Paints.

As William Jennings Bryan puts it ,
Sam Moore is one of the "great common
people , " and as honest and manly , as
big-hearted and straight-forward as he is
big and homely. To know the right
thing his duty is but to do it. That
the interests of the "Big First" will be
in the hands of a property-owner who
has nought but the best interests of Mc
Cook at heart , goes without the saying.
Vote for him. He will do nothing as
councilman to bring the blush of shame
to the cheeks of any who supported him.
John Whitehead , who lives southwest
of town , has been a patron of the Cam
bridge separator station since it was first
established , and he , like all others who
have sold their cream at the station ,
says it pays. He now has eight milch
cows. For the month of January they
netted him $7.00 each and for February
$6.00 each. Mr. Whitehead will increase
.his milch herd to 17. He will not farm
this year , more than about 40 acres ,
which he will put into alfalfa and other
feed. Cambridge Clarion.
In view of the approach of spring ,
Clerk Green contemplates having print
ed a number of placards urging the ruth
less public to refrain from walking on
the grass in the beautiful yard about the
court-house. It is thought , too , that a
placard , calling attention to the possible
danger of falling into the abandoned
lime pit in front of the building , might
save apparel if not life and limb.
Messrs. McConnell & Berry , Frank J.
Morgan and C. A. Leach will have a re
sponsible bill-board of their own. It
will occupy the front of the lots in block
22 , made vacant by the fire of first of the
year. While it will not be a very at
tractive feature for Main avenue , it will
be an improvement over the present un
sightly prospect.
Prof. Swift entertained , instructed and
delighted a fair-sized and sympathetic
audience in the Congregational church ,
last Friday evening , through the at
tractive medium of his telescope , micro
scope and accompanying , explanatory
lecture. The public schools netted about
$12"from the receipts of the entertain
ment.
The general admission tickets to hear
William Hawley Smith are 35 cents ; re
served seats , 50 cents. You can't afford
to miss the , great treat that William
Hawley will present his hearers. Men-
ard's opera house , Wednesday evening ,
April 4th.

Census Information.
To build up a great office like the cen
sus office in fifteen months from abso
lutely nothing to an efficient machine ,
employing about three thousand men in
Washington and about fifty thousarid
elsewhere in the country , is a difficult
task , and entire success is out of the
question. The office naturally compares
itself with the stage of preparation at
tained at the same period ten years ago
and tried by this test , it has gained sev
eral months on its predecessor. One of
the problems before it is how to put in
the time thus secured in such a way as
most to benefit the census.
In the agricultural division the need
of time for preliminary work is perhaps
as great as any where in the census office.
Farmers , as a class , do not keep their
accounts as well as manufacturers , and
the returns from farmers may occasion
ally include serious errors which a trained
eye will at once detect. Hence the farm
schedules must be examined and such
errors corrected before the tables can be
made up from them with safety. If a
farmer reports that his land sown to
wheat was ten acres and the yield four
thousand bushels , it is clear that an aver
age yield of four hundred bushels to the
acre is incredible , and must be rejected
or corrected in accordance with the
probabilities. Sometimes the time can
be made out by an expert from compari
son with entries in other parts of the
schedules ; sometimes correspondence
must be opened to settle the doubt. All
this ranks under the general head of ver
ifying the schedules , and the agricultural
division plans to give all the lime possi
ble to the work of verifying each of the
millions of farm schedules. To accom
plish this in the time allowed , the work
of several hundred clerks will be re
quired , and they must have hard and
last rules to guide them. For example ,
they might be told : When the wheat re
ports show a product of over forty bush
els to the acre , they are suspicious and
must be laid aside for an expert to pass
upon. But any such rules must vary
with the section of the country. A yield
of twenty bushels in one section might
be more questionable than a yield of forty
bushels in another. Hence the division
must fix in advance what is the range of
reports in each part of the country and
for each crop that may be accepted as
probable on their face and not requiring
special examination. To get the limits
of probability for this purpose for each
county in the United States , that is , the
maximum and minimum yield and the
maximum and minimum price which
may be accepted without verification , is
the object of an extensive correspond
ence now being carried on by the agri
cultural division under the direction of
IG. . Powers , chief statistician in charge
of that division. Three simple schedules
have been prepared and printed on dif
ferent colored paper in order that they
may be readily distinguished one from
another. One of them covers ordinary
garden vegetables , a second covers fruits ,
and the third the great staple field crops.
Each asks about the units of measure
employed and the net price realized , and
the two more important schedules , those
for staple field products and for vegeta
bles , ask for the highest and lowest yield
of each crop per acre. These schedules
are being mailed to prominent farmers
all over the country and in many in
stances returns have already been re
ceived. When the returns have been re
ceived and tabulated , a scheme will be
made from them of what is to be ac
cepted as correct in each case and what
is to be probed farther. The only aim
of the office is to get what was really the
intention of the farmer in answering the
questions. If the presumption is strongly -
ly against his meaning what the schedule
says , the office will try to learn by cor
respondence from the supervisor , or the
enumerator , or the farmer himself what
the real facts were.
If the farming public will continue to
co-operate with the heartiness already
displayed , this effort will result in a
more trustworthy census of farms than
has ever been taken. Farmers , as a
class , are less able to co operate than the
representatives of any other great in
dustry. Hence the census office can do
more for them than it can for centralized
lines of business , which can and do make
their own investigations , and it will do
its best to present a full and accurate
photograph of this leading occupation.
The director of the census urges every
one interested to aid the work.
