One of the Famous McCooks.
Attached to No.6 , last Saturday night ,
was General Manderbon's private car ,
containing the general counselor and his
guest , General Anson G. McCook , who
were on their way east from u trip through
the mountains and resorts of note. Gen
eral McCook was ao interested in the
city named after another of the famous
fighting McCooks , his uncle , General
Alexander McDowell McCook , of the
regular army , who was a guest of the
city during the great reunion of 1891 ,
that he remained up to catch a glimpse
of our enterprising little city out here on
the Nebraska frontier , and expressed
gratification and felt repaid for the ef
fort. Though not so famous as his un
cle , General Anson G. McCook has filled
many high places with honor and credit ,
having hoth an army and civil record
of note : He was colonel of the 25th
Ohio infantry during the civil war and
was hrevetted brigadier of volunteers.
In civil life he was a member of the
' house in the 45th , 46th and 4th con
gresses from the city of New York ; sub
sequently , secretary of the United States
senate , and still later chamberlain of
the City of New York under Mayor
Strong' .
A Serious Problem.
It may not be denied that that the
grasshopper and chinch-bug question
in South-western Nebraska , has as
sumed importance demanding attention
and definite action. They are apparent
ly increasing in numbers and consequently
quently in destructiveness. While relief
may properly be demanded and expect
ed from the next legislature , united ac
tion on the part of the people will beab-
solutely necessary. The use of the hop
per-dozer should be encouraged , the
chicken industry should be increased on
every farm to the utmost limit , the best
methods of poisoning should be followed
where practicable , chinch-bug inocula
tion should be practiced as directed by
the state entomologist , Prof. Bruner.
These methods , where followed careful
ly and vigorously , have materially re
duced the destructive ravages of the
pests ; if followed generally , would result
in very largely solving the problem.
The life of every wild bird should be re
ligiously presenel , and legal enact
ment ma } * be necessary to cover this
Public Sale.
I will offer at public sale at my farm ,
four miles north-east of Box Elder , on
Tuesday , July 31 , at 10 o'clock a. m. ,
iny farming implements , live stock ,
household goods , etc.
Terms : All sums ofio and under ,
cash ; on all sums over $10 a credit of
twelve months will be given , purchaser
giving note with approved security ,
drawing 10 per cent interest per annum.
A discount of 6 per cent will be given
for cash on all sums over $10. No prop
erty is to be removed until terms of sale
are complied with. Free lunch at noon.
Creditable Collections.
'Notwithstanding the unfavorable con
ditions and the fact that but two distress
warrants have been issued , the total col
lections of the county treasurer's office
have already reached 66 per cent of the
1899 levy. Down in Douglas county the
dailies recently referred with satisfaction
to the fact that the collections in that
county had reached 59 per cent of the
levy for 1899. Consequently , Treasurer
Thompson may well feel gratified over
his record , which has not been marked
by distress.
Millions in It.
A general song of rejoicing is heard
all over Nebraska on account of the
great rain of last Saturday and Sunday ;
The rain was general from river to range ,
and the precipitation ranged from 3
inches in Eastern Nebraska to .56 of an
inch at McCook. It takes seven or eight
figures to indicate its value to Nebraska
and over much of the state guarantees a
corn crop. The fall in this section was
small and the benefits somewhat meager.
A Hard Fight.
Lightning struck and fired the open
prairie , Wednesday night of last week ,
at the north-west corner of 30-1-29 ,
Grant precinct , and endangered the
grain belonging to A. V. Olmstead , Ed
Lawthers and William Relph , in all
about 300 acres. By hard work , Thurs
day morning and part of the afternoon ,
12 or 15 men finally put the fire out.

A Farmer First and a Lawyer for
A TRIBUNE reporter made a trip out
to and over Deacon Morlan's farm , one
day this week , and as a result of the
golden vision that was modestly and re-
luuctantly unfolded to his eyes , has
come to the conclusion that Deacon
Morlan should be properly classified as
a FARMER FIRST and incidentally a
lawyer , for recreation , say ; for the re
sults obtained on his farm , this unprom
ising season , cannot be excelled , if even
duplicated , by any farmer in the Fifth
His farm of 280 acres is located a few
miles south aud a little west of McCook.
There are 90 acres in thrifty , growing
fruit trees ot different kinds , and the re
mainder of the laud , save that used as
sites for the farm-house and several sub
stantial farm buildings , is under culti
vation , most of it in wheat , this season ,
with some corn and other crops. But it
was the two fields of wheat that most
attracted and held attention. The wheat
in the smaller field was in the shock ,
and the reporter admits that he never
saw the ground more thic' ly strewn
with shocks of splendid grain. The
average yield from this field was a little
better than 40 bushels per acre. In the
larger aud principal wheat field the
threshers were at work and the yield
was about 38 bushels per acre. In the
two fields of a total of 132 acres , the
yield was in round figures strong 5,000
bushels , which netted him $9 per acre
over and above all expenses. While the
entire farm is under irrigation , the wheat
received but one watering , which was
given last fall.
This , however , is not the only direc
tion in which Farmer Morlan has ex
hibited his energy , enterprise and judg
ment. His manner of dealing witb the
grasshopper and other insect and animal
pests of the farm is not a whit less heroic
aud original. Three miles of chicken-
tight wire fencing encloses his farm ,
within which enclosure range at will
over 500 turkeys , more than 1,500 chick
ens and quite a drove of ducks ; and
these fowls are one of the elements used
by the deacon in controlling the pests :
the hopper-dozer being also energetic
ally exercised to the same purpose.
Chicken-coops and houses , large and
small , are located all over the farm ,
there being some 20 large and about 100
small houses. This distribution makes
the work of the fowls general over the
farm and more effective. These ener
getic measures have reduced the ravages
of the grasshoppers and chinch-bugs to
the minimum on the Morlan farm. The
incubating aud brooding plant is perhaps
the most elaborate , complete and up-to-
date in this section of Nebraska , and is
one of the distinctive features of the
Morlan farm.
In addition to the 90 acres of orchard ,
quite an amount and variety of small
fruit has been planted on the farm ,
chiefly raspberries , strawberries and
grapes. Lack of water the ditch broke
out and could not be used for a whole
month when most needed the grass
hoppers and hail conspired to do up the
small fruit , this season , hence the straw
berry yield was light and 200 quarts
covered the raspberry yield.
There are some 30 or 40 stands of bees
dn the farm.
There are quite a number of- experi
mental plats on the farm : One of them
embraces five acres of sunflowers , and
others Kafir and Jerusalem corn in
small patches.
The farm is the deacon's pride and re
ceives much of his personal attention ,
every detail being given closest and
most business-like consideration , audit
stands today one of the most attractive
visions of thrift , energy and judgment in
the Republican valley.
The Fifth district's population is com
posed for the most part of farmers and
stockmen and it is but natural that they
should desire a farmer to represent them
in congress. Deacon Morlan seems to
be the only man in the field or con
sidered for the position who fills the bill :
Born and raised on the farm , closely in
sympathy with the toilers on the farm ,
a practical and successful farmer , whose
experimental and courageous efforts are
a valuable heritage to every farmer * in
South-western Nebraska , he is an ideal
farmer's candidate , who should com
mand many votes outside his party.
Our Kids Won.
A kid base-ball club of our city went
up to Wauneta , last Friday , and defeated
a kid organization of that burg to the
tune of 32 to 22 scores. Our boys got
everything in sight and came home in
the evening feeling like lords. This is
the second victory scored by the McCook
kids over the Wauneta kids.

Now that the Burlington has com
pleted its extension to Guernsey , Wyo. ,
graders and tracklayers are being trans
ferred to the country between Bridge
port , Neb. , and Brush , Colo. Here the
Burlington is building a line to connect

line. Its completion will help to develop

from Colorado to the Black Hills and

Mrs. William Cropp , wife of Con
ductor Cropp of Oxford , died very sud
denly iu Oxford , Wednesday evening.
They were both in the garden. A
neighbor lady came to see Mrs. Cropp
and was directed by Mr. Cropp to the
part of the yard where Mrs. Cropp was.
The lady returned at once and reported
that Mrs. Cropp was lying down , and
very ill. Mr. Cropp hurried to his wife
and found that she was dead. She had
been stricken down by an attack of
heart disease. He has the deep sympa
thy of all who know him.
William E , Curtis of the Chicago
Record came up the valley as far as Ox
ford , Monday night , on a trip over the
Burlington. He traveled in General
Passenger Agent Francis' private car
and was in charge of Mr. Campbell , the
advertising man of the Burlington. The
itinerary contemplated a visit to Mc
Cook , but the car was laid over at Ox
ford and returned eastward on 2 , Tues
day morning. A short trip into the
country was made by Mr. Curtis and
party from Oxford , F. X. Merwin of the
Beaver City Tribune , chief engineer.
The trip embraces a visit to the Black
Hills , S. D. , thence on through Wyom
ing and Montana , to Yellowstone na
tional park. Before returning east Mr.
Curtis will go to Northern Montana ,
where Governor Roosevelt used to
"rough it" on his ranch , for the purpose
of gathering material for a character
sketch of the Republican vice-presiden
tial nominee.
The newest aid in railroad education
is an airbrake school car , maintained by
the Burlington Route to instruct its
enginemen and trainmen in the proper
uses of airbrakes. The car makes regular
visits to the principal points on Burling
ton lines , the airbrake school being in
charge of Instructor A. J. Cota. Each
morning and afternoon he spends several
hours at the cars showing railroaders
just how to get the best results from the
brakes. The machinery in the car is
rigged with the same amount of airpipe
and cylinder space that is found in a
train of thirty air cars with the engine.
Mr. Cota says it is a mistaken opinion
of many that to make faster time the
railroads have been compelled to devote
all their energies toward building faster
locomotives. The locomotives run fast
enough to make the fastest schedules ,
but the main trouble has been to make
quick stops. Every time the Burlington
has made radical reductions in its time
it has placed in service improved air
