NINETEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. JUNE 15 , I9OO. NUMBER
Will Run Creamery Cars.
The Beatrice creamery is bringing the
Burlington a heavy increase of business
on its trains from the west owing to the
large quantities of cream curried from
the skimming stations along the main
line and along the Kansas City line east
of Oxford. This business has been sc
heavy in the past that trains have been
delayed by the loading and unloading ol
milfc cans. No. 6 , the eastbound fasl
train , bus been laid out a few minutes
many mornings waiting for the milk
cans to be unloaded here. To obviate
this trouble the company , Monday , in
augurated a new scheme in the handling
of the cream. Train No. 5 , leaving Lin
coln every forenoon , carries westward
an empty baggage cur fitted up for milk
\ cans. This car is taken to McCookand
is returned the next night as far as Hold-
rege on No. 6. There the car is held
until No. 2 comes along , in the mean
time receiving cream cans from the
Edgar & Cheyenne line. The car is
brought to Lincoln on No. 2 , arriving
here shortly after i o'clock. Here the
car is set on the creamery track and un
loaded , and the passenger train is not
held for unloading. Two cars were fitted
up in the yaids , Monday , for this service.
Ordinary baggage cars were used , and a
double deck was built inside on which to
stack the cans. Journal.
A Low Assessment.
The county commissioners have been
in session , this week , as a board ol
equalization , and an inspection of the
reports of the various precinct assessors
shows a very decided reduction in the
total assessment , which is $137.000 lower
than last year. In Willow Grove pre
cinct the assessment is about $2,000
lower than it was last year. Just how to
account for this heavy falling off in as
sessable property is a difficult matter ;
but as the county commissioners are
only authorized to equalize taxes , the
low assessment will have to stand. In
the case of this precinct , this will not be
without some embarrassment to both
city and school finances. A casual
glance at the situation here would lead
one to expect a higher , rather than a
lower , assessment in this precinct , as
considerable improvement has been
made during the past year all over the
Speaking ot Farming.
THE TRIBUNE believes that Red Wil
low has two boys who are farming as
much land as any two men in the state.
We refer to the Tuttles , Will and George ,
of Gerver precinct. Between them , they
have 660 acres in small grain ; and while
the yield will not be heavy , they will
harvest every acre of it , judging from
present conditions. In addition , they
have 230 acres in corn ; besides some
millet and cane. The total acreage will
exceed 900 acres. Their corn is in fine
shape. It should be added , too , that
the boys have farmed this immense acre
age with but small assistance , and that
Met Defeat Again.
The High School club drove over to
Oberlin , Sunday , and on Monday played
the Norcatur club on the Oberlin
grounds , meeting defeat in a score of 5
to 9. While the boys were defeated ,
the score indicates that they played a
good game of ball , just the same. The
High School aggregation is nervy and
undaunted by such small circumstances
as defeat. Here's hoping their courage
may soon be rewarded by victory.
Laying the Crossings.
Marshal Gray and a force of men have
been engaged , this week , in laying the
new Colorado red-stone crossings on
Main avenue. The stone will make
permanent crossings of themselves , but
we question the wisdom of placing bricks
between the lineal courses of stone.
Tl " ricks will certainly wear out soon
and make a rough crossing. Better all
stone , if the crossings must be a little

Almost an Inch.
A fine rain prevailed over this immed
iate vicinity , Monday night , .91 of an
inch of rain falling during the night. A
pretty lively zepher was the forerunner
of the rain. The moisture comes too
late to be of much value to the small
grain , but it will give the corn and
other crops a helpful impetus. Our in
formation is that the rain was local and
did not cover a large territory.
Another nice shower visited this re
gion , Tuesday evening.
Last night's rain was the heaviest of
the series of three , this week. The pre
cipitation was .95 of an inch. These
rains have put a most encouraging face
on agricultural conditions ! making over
two inches of rainfall , this week. Re
ports from all over the county are more
encouraging , even the small grain pros
pects being much brighter than thought
possible , fiist of the week.
Kitty Eaton's Sad Death.
A Cheyenne , Wyo. , special to the
Denver Post announces the death of
Kitty Eaton , Wednesday , in a rooming-
house in that city , under suspicious cir
cumstances. The dead girl is a sister of
Mrs. James Shepherd of our city , and is
well known here. The remains will ar
rive here , tonight , for burial , in charge
of her mother , Mrs. Mary S. Eaton of
Valverde , Colo. , a suburb of Denver.
There are numerous rumors afloat. Mrs.
Eaton hints at a conspiracy to ruin the
dead girl , and says she will have the
matter probed to the bottom. The
press dispatch states that if the affair is
investigated some sensational arrests
will be looked for. 'Tis a sad affair.
The girl lived here a number of years ,
being about 17 years old at her tragic
Her Sufferings Ended.
After a painful illness of severa
weeks , Mrs. Gertrude Sanders , mothei
of Mrs. George Beck , passed from life or
last Friday afternoon. The deceased
was stricken with pneumonia in Denver
a few weeks since , and her life was de
spaired of ; but a temporary improvement
made it possible to remove her to the
home of her daughter in our city. Com
plications set in , and after much aucl
great suffering , her spirit winged it
The deceased was a native of Ger
many , being born in Mainz on the
Rhine , November nth , 1838. She spent
the last eleven years of her life in Mc
Cook , Jbeing 62 3'ears old at death. Fun
eral services were conducted at the res
idence , Saturday afternoon , by Rev. W.
J. Turner , interment following in Longview -
view cemetery. Quite a number oi
neighbors and "friends paid a last tribute
of respect by their presence.
A CARD OK THANKS.
We are deeply grateful and thankful
for assistance and sympathy so kindly
rendered during the illness and after the
death of our dear mother. We will ever
keep them all in tender remembrance.
MR. AND MRS. GEORGE BECK.
An official request was received here ,
Tuesday , from Culbertson , for the au
thorities here to arrest and hold Tom
Wray , the well-known Culbertson saloon
man , who was thought to be in this
city. The ostensible charge is said to
have been the illegal sale of liquor , but
knowing ones claim that there is a more
serious charge back of the one made
public , involving Wray's conduct with a
married woman up there. Marshal
Gray succeeded in locating his man with
out difficulty , but did not take him in
charge , as Wray claimed he was simply
down here to consult his attorney.
While the marshal was at dinner , and
Wray was supposed to be consulting his
attorney , Wray had a liveryman of the
city drive him over to Kansas. When
the officer arrived from Culbertson in
the afternoon. Marshal Gray found that
his bird had flown he had been clever
ly confidenced as his reward for being
"too easy. "
A Camping Party.
Rev. W. J. Turner of the Congrega
tional church spent three days of the
week at Wauneta camping out with a
party of boys of the city. The party
was made up of the following lads :
Lloyd Wood , Matthew Thomson , Bruce
Campbell , Dare Keuyon , Darvie Burnett ,
Clarence Stokes , Fay Brewer , Harold
Sutton , Robert Burns and Horace Cole.
They went up on Tuesday morning , re
turning on Thursday evening. They re
port a fine time : A base-ball game ,
fishing , boating , bathing , a good soak
ing by rain , and other joys "too numer
ous to mention" were among the pleas
ures of the trip.
The boys brought home with them a
base-ball , a trophy of their victory in a
game with a local club. The score was
27 to 17.
Died of Consumption.
S. J. Byron , who arrived here from
Chicago , May Sth , died of consumption ,
yesterday afternoon at 3:40 at the home
of A. G. Loriug. The deceased was a
switchman in Chicago and in November
of last year was terribly injured by a lo
comotive running over him , breaking
both his legs , injuring a lung and other
wise using him up physically. Blood-
poisoning and an attack of typhoid fever
followed the accident , and consumption
finally ensued , resulting in his death.
The only known living relative of the
dead man is a sister in Clinton , Iowa ,
who is deaf and dumb. Funeral services
were conducted at the Loring home ,
this morning at ten o'clock , by Rev.J.
A.Badconofthe Methodist church. Re
mains were buried in Riverview ceme

vice. Thus the system is claimed to be
most desirable all around.

urn offer same to customers AT A MUCH
