A Winning Gait.
In the game with Cambridge , Wednes
day afternoon , McCook's base ball club
maintained its winning gait for 1901 ,
winning from the visitors by a score of
16 to 12 in the tenth inning. At the
close of the ninth inning , honors were
even at 10 scores each.V. . 13. Bechtel-
heinier made his first appearance in the
pitcher's boy for McCook , and did effec
tive work , though wild at times and not
being in thorough control of the ball.
All .in all , it was a fair game , well at
tended and enthusiastically received , al
though not quite up to the high stand
ard of some other games of this season.
At Arapahoe July 1 9.

Arapahoe , today one week , Friday , July

Mayor Eldred the following order wai
on Wednesday evening issued mid circu
lated by Sup't Meeker of the water
works com panj :
MAYOR'S OFFICE ,
McCook , Neb , July 10 , igor.
C. H. Meeker , Supt. Water Works , City
Dear Sir- Owing to light water pres
sure in stand-pipe , leaving the city ir
danger from fire , you are hereby notified
to take such action as will remedy the
defect. Yours truly ,
C. E. ELDRED , Mayor.

To Lawn Sprinkling Patrons of McCook
Water Works :
Owing to extreme drouth the lack of
water necessitates our discontinuing
lawn servi e for a few days.
You are therefore notified not to use
water on lawns or gardens until further
notice and call at office of water works
for your credit for time not used.
You are required to disconnect hose
from hydrants as provided by ordinance
of city of McCook and the rules of water
works. C. H. MEEKER , Supt.
Just how long this order will stand
and be in force will doubtless depend
upon the weather and the efforts put
forth by the company to provide water in
sufficient quantities to meet the demands
of the patrons.
The situation is indeed a serious one ,
demanding immediate and heroic action
on the part of the company. A suspen
sion of the lawn sprinkling service for
any considerable length of time will
mean the destruction of the lawns of the
city upon which in the aggregate large
sums have been expended by the people
At the present time , however , until
additional supply is secured , in order to
secure to the consumers of the city fire
protection and adequate domestic supply ,
.t is doubtless necessary to comply
strictly with the order of the superinten
dent. No doubt the company will take
mmediate and urgent i'eps toward en-
arging the present inadequate supply.
The following circular was distributed
by the company this morning :
NOTICE TO WATER CONSUMERS.
McCook Water Works , July 12 , 1901.
The cheerful compliance with our re
quest of the loth , together with the
economical use of water by our patrons ,
demonstrates our ability to furnish a
small amount of water for lawn purposes.
Listen for the whistle. We will try to
furnish lawn water two hours this even
ing , from 6 to 8 , and as much each ev
ening as we can.
We may not be able to furnish for
more than one hour some evenings.
The whistle will indicate the time. No
water to be used on lawns after 8 p. m.
Do not turn on until you hear the whis
tle and turn off promptly when it blows
at eight o'clock and take the hose off t
from hydrant. .
Any day that we can not furnish the
water the whistle will not blow , so do
not use the water unless you hear the
Always in case of fire turn off the s
water. C. H. MEEKER , Supt. b
lu this connection we would suggest
to consumers that the use of the hand
hose and nozzle will give by far the best .

A NEW WELL AT ONCE.
President C. H. Merrill of the Lincoln
vand Co. , ( accompanied by Prof. Bar- tl :
bour of the Nebraska university , state
geologist , ) arrived in the city , last night ,
Htid went over the ground with Sup't
Meeker of the local plant , this morning.
They cairie to the conclusion before
noon that another well is necessary , and
President M or rill authorized Sup't
Meeker to forthwith commence work on
new well. . Sup't Meeker immediately
commenced wiring for supplies necessary [
and he hopes to be able to pump water
from the new well within two weeks ,
possibly by ten days , as he will rush the
ivork with all possible speed.
Still Hot and Dry.
With the rest of the United States. B
Southwestern Nebraska is still suffering
rom a spell of intensely hot weather
ind of protracted drouth. It can not be
lenied that the corn crop has already
suffered from the lack of moisture , heat
md hot winds , and unless relief comes
promptly and adequately the result will
je disastrous to the corn crop of this
section of Nebraska. ;
The heat and drouth have not been
inprecedented , but unusual only in the
arliness of appearance.
The outlook from the agricultural ?
itandpoint is not attractive.

Mortgaged Mortgaged Property.
Richard H. Lawerance.late a machin
ist in the Burlington service here.is now
residing at Indiauola at the expense o
Red Willow county. His specific offense
is that of mortgaging mortgaged prop
erty. Ha was up before County Judge
Bishop , last Friday evening , under this
charge and pleaded guilty. He was put
under ' an appearance bond in the sum ol
$200 , and in default was placed in the
county jail , Saturday evening , at Indi-
anola , where he will remain until Novem
ber 1 4th , the next term of district court
for I Red Willow county.
Mr. Lawerance has a weakness for
going into debt , and his success has been
so marked in that direction since coming
to this city that it is claimed by finan
cial experts that he has creditor friends
now to the extent of about $500. His
present distress is evidently the result of
an unsuccessful attempt to square one
creditor . at the expense of another and
from the frying-pan he jumped into a
a pretty hot fire.
He has been living on the John Ste
vens farm southwest of the city. His
wife came in from the farm , early on
ast Saturday morning , and being with
out means as well as her husband , she
was sent down to her father , Ed Price ,
at Bartley , on No. 12 , the same morning.
Lawerance claims to have been a
machinist in the British navy for many
. ears , and to have been in the leading
) orts of the world and on numerous
varships of the "tight little island , " and
eels much aggrieved that a liberty-loving
englishman should thus be deprived of
