if' fy Cr , NINETEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. JULY 13 , 19OO NUMBER 9 About That Cyclone. The people of this city and section of .Nebraska viewed at a safe distance , Monday afternoon , what appeared to he a formidable and destructive cyclone , but which transpired to be quite an in nocent demonstration when the facts and details became known. The stately wind-aud-dust column , joining the earth and clouds , as it passed with delibera tion along the north-western horizon , from south-west to north-east , caused terror to many hearts in this city , and jnauy retired to their cellars until the threatening clouds had dissolved. The cloud could be seen Ironi all over- this .section , Curtis , Hartley , on the Imperial , on the Beaver slope ; and at each separate point it was the opinion of many that the storm was close at hand. In this city , many thought the storui to be within a few miles , when in fact at the closest point it was about fiften miles away. The sight will long be remem bered by hundreds of people , to whom the experience was excitingly new. The storm formed in the north-eastern corner of Hitchcock county , ( about the north-west corner of section 10-4-31 , a witness reports , ) and moved in a north easterly direction over into Frontier county , where it dissolved in the neigh borhood of Spring Creek. The damage caused was but nominal : Damaged some wire fencing at Casper Hakencamp's ; a self-feeder and a little roofing on one of the stock sheds at Joseph Allen's ; demolished a deserted sod-house , unused wind-mill and a gran ary on G. W. Groves' farm ; and shortly H afterwards dissolved by mutual consent , having fortunately missed about every thing of value in its course. The cyclone was about 100 feet wide and moved with surprising deliberation ; it is said that one walking rapidly could have evaded it. Chinch Bug Inoculation. The Nebraska Agricultural Experi ment Station for thiee years furnished inoculated chinch bugs for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not this method of fighting the insect was prac tical. It was learned during this time that , where instructions were followed faithfully and the climatic conditions favorable , the disease worked well. On the other hand , where conditions were unfavorable and instructions only in part or not at all complied with , the results were almost invariably negative. Since no supply of the infection can be obtained from private sources by our farmers , the pressure has been sojjreat , recently , for a continuation of this work here that the university has concluded V -f to send out a limited supply of the fun gus to those who are sufficiently inter ested in it to give it a fair trial. It can be obtained by writing to the Depart meiit of Entomology , .University of Ne braska , Lincoln. LAWRENCE BRUNER , Entomologist. How He Deals With Them. L. E ! Larson , a farmer in the neigh borhood of Chadron , uses the following recipe in his efforts to control the grass hoppers : "Put tablespoonfuls of Paris green into three gallons of water , and stir well until thoroughly mixed ; then stir in bran until a thick niash is formed : Care must be taken to keep up the stirring as the tendency of the Paris green is to settle to the bottom. The mixture is to be thinly scattered on the bare ground between the edge of the field and the growing crop , being care ful not to scatter it upon the grass or the crop , as it will poison the feed. Mr. Larson reports the ground upon the borders of his field literally strewn with the dead hoppeis within a week of the application. He says they will forsake all other feed to eat the bran. " Wells-Howell. Cards are out announcing the wedding of Mr. Joseph Albert Wells and Miss Mary Harriet Howell at Southold , N. Y. , on July 5th. They will be at home in Toronto , Canada. Mr. Wells will be remembered by many of our readers as a clerk in the dry-goods store conducted here , not many years since , by his father of the same name , and will join THE TRIBUNE in expressions of congratula tion.

Tuesday afternoon , the Arapahoe base ball club administered another crushing rlefeat to the Athletics on the home iiamond. The figures 12 to 5 tell the tearful tale. 'Twas a good game up to the seventh inning , the score at the : lose of the sixth inning being 4 to 4. [ n the fatal seventh the Athletics went Lo pieces and allowed the visitors to make 8 runs not a few of them on er rors and the jig was up. The game : entered a great interest , local and from surrounding towns , and was largely at- ; ended by enthusiastic admirers of the jame , Arapahoe sending up her usually arge and staunch following. Too Much Pork : Not Enough Fat. Without doubt the fat in pork is about is hard to digest as anything can be. A lerson has to have a strong digestion md must be engaged in hard work in rder to take care of this food , although t is true a large number of persons de- > end upon it especially through the cold veather. The fact is , however , that as i rule fat is largely deficient in our food ; hat is , a fat which can be easily digest- id and promptly assimilated by the sys- em. Cod liver oil , as we find it in Scott's Emulsion , is the most easily ligested of all fats ; it is just the food the > ody must have to give it nerve power , > rain power and digestive power.
