Weneedan Auditorium.
They want a beet sugar factory out in
Xoveland , Colorado , and this is one of
" the ways the citizens of the nervy and
ambitious little city are showing their
determination to secure it :
The selling of the first hundred pounds
of sugar to be made by the new Loveland
factory closed.last Friday evening. The
TOO pounds brought $3,286 , and Mayor
Johnson gave $14 for the privilege of
weighing out the pound packages Be-
hides , the empty sacks were bid in at $5
P ( I for the inner aiid $2 for the outside sack ,
and the string which is to tie it went for
50 cents. The highest price paid for one
-pound was by R. S. Cox. who gave $325 ;
Lee Kelim was next $300 , with Charles
Ryan third at $250 Loveland fColo. )
McCook needs an auditorium and may
well emulate Lovelaud in this matter , in
some similiar scheme. The auditorium
is worth going after , are we going to be
in the running ? It is for the citizens of
.McCook to say. Every man , woman
-und child in the city is deeply interested
'in this city having a suitable building
for public gatherings this movement
must necessarily be a popular one , be
cause all are effected by it. If all put
their shoulders to the will move
xilong smoothly to success. Will you
The "Owls" Congregate.
The Awl-Os were in regular fortnight
ly session , Tuesday evening , at the home
of Miss Nelle Gunii , and the affair was
p to the traditional notch of pleasure.
The meeting partook somewhat of a
beasouable nature , in the gift to each
member of the club of a valentine , heart-
shaped. from Miss Ellen Nordin , of
Marinette , Wisconsin
To afford amusement for the gathering ,
four leaf clovers to the number of 100
were hidden in the house , and a prize
Tell to the finder of the largest number
of these paper clovers. Miss Olive
Ritteiihouse won. There were numbers
on the back of each leaf , and the one
Sliding the leaves containing the largest
total of these numbers received a prize ,
likewise. The winner was Mrs. Walter
"Stokes. On two of the leaves were the
letters A and B. The finder of these
also received prizes , which fell to Miss
Mamie Chandler and Miss Pearl Zint.
The prizes in each case , save that of
"vliss Rittenhouse , were valentines of
Wasteful , home creation.
Refreshments were a final and not-
.iie-least feature of the
? - appreciated evening
The Important Thing
In saying is how to make your sav
ings accumulate and multiply.
There is no savings institution so safe
or which multiplies savings so rapidly as

It is a model savings bank.
It is most economically managed.
It provides for the saving of money 1t
usually squandered. s
You get all that your money earns.
No commission paid to agents.
No preferred stock-holders to reap the
cream of the profits.
The poor man's dollar is just as good f
as the rich man's thousands. v

A Rummage Sale.
The ladies of the Au Fait club have
concluded to arrange for a Rummage
Sale in the interest of the auditorium
project. This will doubtless prove to be a a
profitable scheme , and will no doubt be
instrumental in urging other clubs and
societies to some action , similarorother-
vrise , in this behalf. The auditorium
project is on in earnest and if too many tld
schemes do not come to life and divide
the forces and energies of the city , it

A Swell Affair.
The annual ball of Harvey division
No. 95 , Order of Railway Conductors
held in the Menard opera-house , las
evening , was one of the swellest am
most successful balls held in the city in
years. The attendance thronged the
opera-house to its capacity , and every
detail was carried out without a hitch or
mar to any feature.
The grand march was led by Con
ductor and Mrs. Frank Kendlen followed
by a number of conductors , their wives
and ladies , and it was a brilliant ant
dressy gathering that responded to thai
number of the programme.
H. P. Sutton was caller and prompter
for the occasion.
The hall was handsomely decorated
for the affair , patriotic colors being used
to produce an attractive , bright-hued
effect. Flags , large and small , bunting
and ropes formed the principal decora
tions , the effects being heightened by
the powerful rays of two headlights cast
across the hall and blending in the
center. A large O. R. C. banner of
greeting occupied the west wall ; it was
suitably lettered and colored. The
lodge charter and a picture of the grand
chief conductor , E. E. Clark , occupied
the north and south walls , each appro
priately ornamented. The total effect
was uncommonly cheery and inspiring.
In the neighborhood of 250 guests at
tended the affair , which has not been
excelled and seldom equalled in the
social history of the city.
The presence of small-pox in several
localities kept away many from outside
the city , still the list of visitors was
quite large. There was a considerable
delegation from the Imperial branch
and a delegation of eight or ten traveling
men who make their headquarters here. di
Miss Spears , Miss Knox , John Edwards ,
agent at that place , and Fred Boehner
were here from Arapahoe.
The work of the orchestra of nine
pieces was unusually effective and high
ly appreciated , with many compliments.
A base and a snare drum were the additions -
ditions to the usual number of instrual
The affair was a large success finan
cially , ( as well as socially and gastro-

THE TRIBUNE wants to add a word
about this association , which justly
stand first among the building associa
tions of the state of Nebraska :
The McCook Co-Operative Building &
Savings association was organized Janu
ary 26 , 1888 , 13 years ago. It has ma
tured seven series of stock. The A ser
es running 117 months ; B 122 months ;
C 123 months ; D 121 months ; E I2r
months ; F 119 months ; G 118 months.
Estimating 120 months to mature each
series , a member carying one share of
stock , pays into the association $120 ; at
maturity he receives $200 a profit of$8o
on an actual investment of $60 for ten JL
years , 134 per cent per annum , Can
you invest elsewhere a monthly saving
Df one dollar as safely and with as much
jrofil ? The 27th series is now open for e\
Ex-Bank Examiner Wilson claims
that no other association in Nebraska
treats its stock-holders with more hber- re
ility , and that no other association is
onducted upon more careful and busi- Oil
iess-like lines. And in this statement
lie is supported by all the examiners who
liave : inspected its conduct and plans. C
It is one of McCook's most creditable
