The wife and a little daughter , about two years old , are left to mourn the sudden death of a most loving and in dulgent husband and father. Funeral services were held at the home , Tuesday morning , after which the remains were taken overlaud to Ogallalu for burial. The deceased was employed in the Baruett lumber yard at Wauueta. Colts Were Too Swift. The Oberlin Second Team and Al Berry's Colts had a trial of speed ou the McCook Athletic club park , last Friday afternoon , in which the Colts proved themselves to be altogether too swift for the visiting sprinters by the oue-sided score of 15 to 4. Coldreu , Moss and Drath were in the box for the guests and Colfer and Le- Hew for the hosts. Colfer pitched an errorless game and was splendidly supported by LeHew. Last season , the Oberlin boys took two out of three games from the home boys. The return game will be played at Oberlin on Decoration day. The Oberlin boys drove over on Thursday and back on Friday night after the race. They were courteously enter tained by the home boys. Have Returned Home.

The exercises of Commencement night will be held in the Menard opera-house on Monday night , May 27th , with Wil liam Hawley Smith to deliver the ad dress. Mr. Smith is not a stranger to the people of McCook , having on two previous occasions most delightfully en tertained McCook audiences. His fame is national : As an author in the "Evo lution of Dodd ; " while as an educator and lecturer he ranks among America's talented. McCook should annually hear two or three lectures by men of promi nence and ability , and this will be one of the opportunities of a year. In order to provide funds for the pay ment of expenses incidental to the exer cises it has been wisely decided by the board of education to charge a nominal admission fee to the exercises of Monday night. The tickets have been placed at 25 cents , and the same will be on sale at McConnell & Berry's drug-store , com mencing with Tuesday noon , May 2ist. This wise and proper action of the board will doubtless meet with the popular approval it deserves. Sufficient tickets will be sold to comfortably and safely fill the opera-house and no more.

In connection with the resolve of the New York school authorities to abolish the vertical system of handwriting , an odd charge against the teaching of a systematic instead of individual style of writing comes from business circles. Business men say that the reducing of all hands to a uniform appearance greatly increases the difficulty of identi fying handwriting and facilitates the chances of fraudulent imitations.
