NINETEENTH YEAR McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY. NEBRASKA. FRIDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 15 , I9Ol. NUMBER 4O Weneedan Auditorium. i 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. ) -Register. 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 wheel.it 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 ning- 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 3. good Building Association. It is a model savings bank. It is most economically managed. It provides for the saving of money 1t 1s usually squandered. s You get all that your money earns. a No commission paid to agents. b 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 See the Sec'y of the McCook CoOperative o ative Building & Savings Ass'u about tlis the new stock. is iso A Rummage Sale. sit The ladies of the Au Fait club have concluded to arrange for a Rummage V Sale in the interest of the auditorium d project. This will doubtless prove to be a a profitable scheme , and will no doubt be n instrumental in urging other clubs and t societies to some action , similarorother- l vrise , in this behalf. The auditorium tl 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 * vill win. fc fctc Convenient Home For Sale. tc House of 8 rooms , four closets , pantry tlw amd. china closet , good cellar , brick walks , No. i well and wind-mill , high- a pressure tank , stock-tank , milk-house , Stood barn , cow stable , granaries , buggy- cR house , chicken-house and pens , fine R lawn , good shade and fruit trees.

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 ments. The affair was a large success finan cially , ( as well as socially and gastro- nomicallyand ) no little credit is due Conat ductor Frank Kendlen on this account for selling 138 of the tickets alone. The members of 95 , and in fact all " persons connected with the occasion , are proper subjects for hearty congratu lation. THE BANQUET Was served by the Lady Maccabees in D the Odd Fellows hall , and a large num.af ber partook of the tasteful dainties and ot elegant substantials spread so cleverly by the ladies on this occasion. Over fifty couples enjoyed this feature of the W affair. The decorations of the banquet hall se were in red and green the order colors , Ihese ? colors were carried out in the lo table decorations , which were Batten- he burg over red and green , and cut flowers. lath The ices , cakes and bonbons also car ried out this idea. la' Wanted !

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\ subscribers. Ex-Bank Examiner Wilson claims Bl 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 tli ind successful institutions and is worthy tliD of continued and increasing support. ts plans are equitable and profitable lo Doth inveslors and borrowers. th fo Raised the Quarantine. Kc ; The quarantine of the National hotel vas raised on Monday evening , much to pi he joy and relief of those who had been co on fin eel therein since the case of sinall- 56 DOX was discovered in that hotel , sotne- hing over two weeks since. It will be remembered that there was wasch : nly one case , and that was a mild one , c 1 o Mrs. Hannah Barnes being the victim , md that she was promptly removed to he hospital a mile or so north-west of he city , where she was given proper at- [ enlion and rapidly recovered. The outbreak was confined to this one m ase , and the National hotel , the only M Iace in the city exposed , has been horoughly disinfected , double the ordi- Cc lary amount of disinfectants being used the building. this This closes the incident small-pox soar is ar as McCook is concerned , and we feel hat our city has been fortunate in this natter. ru The city authorities , as well , are to be f ongratulated upon the success which liv las attended their efforts to confine and sw tatnp out this disagreeable plague. cit Councii Chamber Echoes. wl The municipal patriarchs wereinregu- ce . session , Monday evening , and dis- du losed of the following business , the full tei toard being present : lai Bills are follows were allowed and arrants ordered drawn the on proper no unds ! : be IcCook Electric'Light Co $ 84.50 wa W.

Some people pay en cents for a cigar inferior to this popu- five-center. Like books , of making cigars there is end ; but none of those recently placed efore the public have met with such a rarm reception from discriminating tnokers as the Great Capadura has. lennett sells them. "The whole age , " said the Earl of loseberry in his recent famous speech rhich stirred old England from center ' circumference , "is an age of advertis- ; we are all engaged in a great and ely war of advertisement. " J. H. Bennett keeps lots of cigars but sells the Great ' Capadura. There's a orld of difference in the two words ad about the same amount of difference etween that famous five-cent cigar and lany others that might be mentioned. The beauty of the Great Majestic is lat it is better than it is advertised to ; hence there are no disappointments heart-aches after you have bought and tested it in your own kitchen. more than meets all the requirements claims. THE TRIBUNE can give more publicity a wider and better constituency by than can any paper published in this ctiou of the state. Advertisers who ek results will bear this in mind. If are from Missouri we will take pleas- in showing you.
