jlt' pt Xt Journal NINETEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING , JUNE 1 , 19OO NUMBER 3 Memorial Day. Again have the living paid their an nual debt of gratitude and love t'o the memory of the dead , and another Me morial day , with all its cherished mem ories , has passed into history. The day , as to weather , was ideal , and the cele bration in keeping with the day. About ten o'clock in the morning , the comrades of the post and the ladies of the circle assembled in the Odd Fellows hull , where the floral , tributes had been gathered , and proceeded to the cemeter ies to bedeck with fair garlands the graves of the departed veterans. The services were according to the solemn and impressive and beautiful ritual of the Grand Army of the Republic. The following graves were decorated in RIVKHVIKW CEMKTEKY. Charles E. Fox , R S. Cooley , Chester Walker , Marion B. Brown , Moses Huttershull , Peter Groves , John D. Gerver , Daniel A. Clements , John B. McCabe , David Keithly , Smith Gordon Elias H. Conrad , William M. Irwiu. LONGVIEW CKMETHRY. Thomas B.Walker , C. Luther Nettleton. At Lougview cemetery the grave of a Confederate soldier , Robert R. Stewart , of Albert Hamilton , a son of a veteran , J. G. Hamilton of Brookhaven , Miss. , and of other dead of soldier families were also decorated ; and at Riverview ceme tery the same programme was carried out , besides the decoration of the splen did monument to the unknown dead. The list is swelled , this year , by the death of William M. Irwin , making fif teen Union soldiers now buried in the cemeteries of this city. At the conclusion of this tender and beautiful ceremony , the procession re turned to the city and disbanded until after dinner , when the members of the post and circle , together with the people generally , crowded the Methodist church to overflowing to hear the regular pro gramme prepared for the afternoon. Dr. A. P. Welles presided. The following \ programme was rendered : Voluntary March Miss Blanche McCarl Song Quartette Prayer Kev. W. J. Turner Reading orders J. II. Yarger Song Quartette Reading Lincoln's Address at Gettysburg Florence Johnson Song Quartette Address to the Unknown Dead. . ] . A. Wilcox Song Quartette Addresses. . Revs. J. W. Walker , W. J. Turner Song "Ameiica" Congregation Benediction Rev. J. W. Walker There was some disappointment over the failure of the announced speaker of the occasion to be present , but Revs. J. W. Walker and W. J. Turner substituted very satisfactorily with patriotic utter ances of an extemporaneous nature. Not a Field-Day. There is a growing and well-founded feeling among the veterans of the G. A. R. , the ladies of W. R. C. and others that Memorial day should be exclusively devoted to its original uses and purposes and that it should in no wise be con founded with the idea of a field-day and sports ; and with * this sentiment THE TRIBUNE is in hearty accord. We now express the hope that when another Memorial day shall have rolled around , the sentiment of the people will be such on this subject that no effort will be made to devote any part of the sacred day to sports , but that the programme of the day shall be comprehensive and interesting enough to engross the time and attention of all. This day should be made an educational one to the youth in the line of patriotism and veneration , and the good and proper lesson is large ly lost sight of and forgotten when sports are injected into the day , which then becomes simply another holiday-day. A Fine Shower. Preceded by a severe wind-storm , a fine and much-needed shower fell over this section , last evening. Clouds of dust scurried along before the stiff breeze , and the tumultuous few minutes : before the rain began to fall caused timid souls some alarm. The rainfall was not heavy , but will serve to keep the crops moving until more profuse relief is given. It was en : couraging revivifying. : Advertised Letters. \ The following letters were advertised by the McCook post-office on M y 27th : R. T. Edger , Manfred Briggs , C. Snyder , Dr. J. J.

Wednesday's Journal. The Burlington , Rock Island and Jnion Pacific roads have issued circulars itating that on and after June i foreign . ars will not be received on their lines mless supplied with automatic couplers , inless the cars so received be en route ' o the road owning them. After August cars unequipped with such safety ap- 1C iliances , will not be received under any 01 ircumstances. Railroads now buy their lew cars equipped according to law and ild cars are properly equipped as fast as aken to the shops. Nearly all of the Nebraska roads will have all their cars at quipped by August i with automatic ouplers and air brakes. In general , bout 60 per cent of the cars are equipped lth air brakes. The cost of fitting out car with automatic couplers is about Of 46 , with air brake , about $75. Under the direction of Master Me- hanic Archibald the work of moving tt he machinery old and new into the tl ew machine-shop has been progressing li ! o favorably that it is hoped to be able 0 set the big engine and machinery in alm lotion by coming Monday. Indeed , a m irelirninary trial may be made on to- stw : " ' " in stm lorrow. "Neighbor's" pride the .ew" shop is something fine and the boys m re sharers of that pride ; and it is well in auiided and altogether excusable. The lachinists all look forward with great atisfaction to the time when "mov- ig" will have been completed and they Wi rill all be installed at their machines to > the comfort and convenience of the nc ew shop , which will provide facilities r doing more and more varied work 'ith greater haste and satisfaction. The tructure is large and airy , well lighted nd ventilated , with the different ma- bines conveniently grouped and dis- osed to secure the best results with the W ! irgest saving of labor. Its completion W leans much to McCook and the West- de : rn division. deM FARMERS ! achine Oils , Stock Foods , Te : Condition Powders , Purest and Best. MCCONNELL & BERRY. Millet seed for sale at S. M. Cochran Co.'s. As to Chinch Bugs. The publisher has received many in quiries us to whether or not the stme is lurnishing inoculated chinch bugs for distribution where needed ; also inquiries as to whether the inoculated bugs can be secured from private parties in case the state is not able to furnish them. A letter from the s > tate entomologist an swers both questions. The letter is as follows : Dear sir : The agricultural experiment station of Nebraska , for beverul years , carried on experiments for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not chinch bugs could be successfully combatted by the use of the white fungus known as spor- otncuui globuhferuui. During this time a great many persons were provided with infected bugs and requested to make careful experiments with them , following certain lines of procedure as indicated by printed instructions accom panying each lot of the infection sent out. Less than one-half of the persons to whom such setidings were made paid any further attention to the matter , and others did such cureless work that no very definite results were obtained fur ther than that it was determined that , under certain conditions , the disease could be imparted to other bugs and considerable benefit derived therefrom , Drovided climatic conditions were favor able at the time of application. About four years ago the head office of he experiment stations located in Wash- ngton decided that the work was no o'nger experimental and would neces sarily have to be carried by state instead of national appropriations. Since no state appropriations have ever been made for this purpose the experiment tation and university are unable any onger to provide relief to farmers by his process. With the above statement of condi- ions as now existing , you will no doubt , inderstand that , unless the coming leg- slature makes some appropriation for lie office of state entomologist , no fur- lier aid can be expected from him. Yours very truly , LAURENCE BRUNER , State Entomologist. The above clearly disposes of any bope of securing the inoculated bugs from the state ; and our inquiry concern ing private enterprise developed the fact that the party , who sought to fill the demand , last year , met with such a scant patronage that he did not feel at ill encouraged to continue his endeavor , his year. The demand , last year , bare- y returned his postage expense. t So the matter is up to the next legis- ature to provide an appropriation for he office of the state entomologist , who vill then be able to fill all legitimate : alls of this kind.
