Mr. Hedges also purchased the elegant
Frank H. Spearman residence and four

Hulburd , of Unlburd , Warren & Co. of
Chicago , owners of the Kemp farm , was

Cambridge Bank Closes.
The state banking board has taken
possession of the Citizen's State bank of
Cambridge. Examiner Wilson took
possession of the bank , Monday , and on
Tuesday the state board authorized the
attorney general to apply to the district
court fet the appointment of a receiver.
The cause of the failure is said to have
been too much poor paper. The bank
has a capital stock of $12,500. The re
port of tlie bHiik on March 12 showed
lhat the deposits were $39,393.71 , and
the loans and discounts amounted to
$38,595 99 Frank Bagwill is the presi
dent of the bn.ik and S. C. Simonds is
the cashier. This is the fiist bank fail
ure in the state this year. Last year ,
only one state bank failed and it had a
capital stock of only $5.000.Journal. .
Holdrege Goes Dry.
At Tuesday's election , Holdrege "went
dry" by a plurality of 37 votes. Rev.
Kiplinger , a retired Congregational min
ister , was elected mayor. The gentle
man will be remembered by quite a
number of McCook people.
The election is reported as having been
a very hot and close one , the vote cast
about 550 being the largest ever polled
in that city. There were a number of
ariests for alleged illegal voting among
the number being Robert Byers of the
Burlington eating house at that place ,
and late of McCook
Struck Her in the Eye.
Mrs. R. A. Hagberg received an ugly'
and painful injury to one of her eyes ,
last Saturday. She was assisting and
watching Mr. Hagberg put up some win
dow curtains , when the spring from the
end of the curtain pole flew into the eye
with considerable force. The delicate
member was lacerated and soon became
badly swollen. The injury is quite severe
and painful , but it is expected that the
sight will not be impaired and that the
eye will be fully restored in due time.
A Close Game.
The High-school base ball club drove
over to Cedar Bluffs , Kansas , Saturday
last , and crossed willows with the Ober-
lin team. A warm and close game re
sulted , the Oberlin club being victorious
in a score of 14 to 13. About a dozen of
the High-school girls went over to en
courage the home team by their presence
and enthusiastic "rooting. "
The following letters were advertised
by the McCook postoffice on March i8th :

From Los Angeles , Cal. , to Chicago , a
distance of 2,265 miles , in fifty hours
and thirty minutes. This is the record
hung up by the Atchison , Topeka &
Santa Fe when the "Peacock special"
pulled into the Chicago depot at 10:30 :
o'clock , last Wednesday night. All rec
ords of the run were beaten by nearly
eight hours. An hour after the arrival
of the train A. R. Peacock , vice-president
of the Carnegie Steel company , boarded
a Pennsylvania train eleven hours earlier
than he expected. The trip from the
coast there cost Mr. Peacock $4,000. For
the entire distance an average speed of
38.9 miles was maintained. On several
long stages of the run the speed approached
preached one mile per minute and was
maintained for distances that are re
markable in view of the difficulties over
come. The train was made up of en
gine , Pullman car , a combination car
and a baggage car.
The second longest train service in the
United States will be inaugurated Sun
day , April 29 , when the Burlington and
Northern Pacific railroads will begin the
operation of through trains from St.
Louis to Portland. The distance is 2,374
miles. The through "Sunset Limited"
: raiu on the Southern Pacific between
tfew Orleans and San Francisco covers a
trifle longer distance , its mileage being
2,489 miles. Through car service is op
erated by different roads over greater
distance , but besides the exception noted
there is no other through train covering
so long a distance. In order to afford a
connection with this train from Omaha
and points east of that city of the "Q"
system , a new train from Peora to Lin
coln , passing via Omaha , will be put in-
o service , April 29. This train will
eave Peoria about 8:30 a. m. , arriving at
Dmaha about 9 p. m. , and leaving there
"or Lincoln after a twenty-minute stop.
The schedule for the new service pro
vides for departure from St. Louis at 9
a. m and arrival at Portland 318:50 p.
m. of the following day. The entire run
will be made without any change of car ;
whatever. The equipment for this new is
service includes sleepers , diners , reclin
ing chair and smoking cars , which are
now being built by the Pullman com
pany. To maintain the regular daily
service between St. Louis and Portland
ten trains are required. Five of these
trains will be owned by the Burlington
and Jive by the Northern Pacific. The
cars will be uniform in appearance ,
finished in the familiar Pullman color ,
wide vestibules and equipped with all
Republican Ticket Wins.
The result of Tuesday's city election
must be most gratifying and satisfactory
to the Republicans of McCook in the
most decisive victory achieved lor the
entire ticket. While success was ex
pected the pluralities in some instances
are unexpectedly large. This victory
emphasizes the fact that McCook is Re
publican and Republican from center to
circumference , and that when a clean
ticket of good , competent men is placed
in the field by fair and open and perfect
ly regular means , it only remains to
make out the certificates of election ol
the nominees. The city ticket , this
year , was happily chosen ; was cleanly
and ably constituted ; the campaign for
its election was conducted in a fair and
manly way ; and its success is a source of
great satisfaction and no little comfort.

Money Orders to Russia.
For the first time in the history of the
money order branch of the postal system
it became possible , April 2 , to transmit
money from this country to Russia
through the postoffice dt-partment. This
is due to the extension of the internation
al money order system , which became
operative , April 2. The a rsument with .
Russia is regarded as espe'cially impor
tant from the fact that the United States
is the first country to break down the
conservatism of Russia and establish a
system for international money order
exchange. The new agreement provides
for the direct exchange of postoffice
money orders folloxving the same plan
as those adopted with other continental
powers. The system does not embrace
Asiatic Russia or Finland , the latter re
maining as heretofore under the opera
tion of the Swedish convention. Mc
Cook , being an international money or
der office , is equipped to send money
orders to and pay money orders from
A Princely Entertainer.
At his appearance in the opera hall ,
Wednesday evening , under auspices of
the McCook athletic club , William
Hawley Smith again satisfactorily proved
himself a princely entertainer , before a
splendid audience. His subject was , f
"Life and Literature. " His recitations
were chiefly from James Whilcomb Riley
and Mark Twain , as best illustrating
his ideas about literature that was worth
while and true to life. It was through
out a fine treat and left a good taste in
your mouth afterwards. The athletic
club realized quite nicely from the enter
tainment , besides giving the people of
McCook something worth while in the
line of entertainment.
