Severe For December
The cold weather of the early days of
this weekon top of the snowfall of last
week have given us an unusually severe
snap for December The temperature
reached as low as twenty degrees below
zero Monday and Tuesday The cold
wave was quite general especially over
the west and southwest The east and
south suffered in a less degree from the
cold but the east very severely from
wind and water Pennsylvania being
the heaviest sufferer
Wednesday morning a chinook
wind took a hand in the local proceed
ings modifying the temperature in a
marked degree and dissipating the snow
like the mist before the morning sun

The Star of Bethlehem
Rev G W Crofts of Beatrice who
occupied so satisfactorily the Congrega
tional pulpit last Sunday morning and
evening read the following little appro
priate poem during his evening discourse
The first three stanzas were recently
printed in an eastern paper or magazine
but the two closing stanzas have just
been added and have not hitherto ap
peared in print
The Star that shono oer Bethlehem
Is surely shining yet
Altho unseen by mortal eyes
And never will it set
And leave the world without its light
In darkness and regret
The Star that shone oer Bethlehem
Was Gods sweet star of love
That showed itself where Christ was born
Tho manger rude above
And hung there in its mellow light
Like a fair silver dove
The Star that shone oer Bethlehem
The love of God divine
Is shining now as it did then
In that dear heart of thine
And there as when the Lord was born
That star will ever shine
The Star that shone oer Bethlehem
Will give thee perfect peace
Until the winds and waves of life N
Their turbulence shall cease
And thou shalt find from every ill
A glorious release
The Star that shone oer Bethlehem
That sweetly shining star
Will give thee light when thou shalt come
To cross lifes harbor bar
And thou shalt reach tho heavenly strand
Beheld by faith afar
Resolutions of Respect
The members of McCook lodge No
135 A F A M with a strong sense
of their duty of resignation to a higher
power to a will that is ever beneficently
directed toward our good bow in humble
submission in the deplorable death of
our beloved and worthy brother George
S Bishop Surely we live in a world
where solemn shadows are continually
falling upon our path shadows that
teach us the uncertainty of all temporal
blessings and warn us that here we have
no abiding place
To his stricken wife and orphans we
extend our deepest sympathy and if
any consolation can be afforded them
under so heavy an affliction it must
come from a higher power than ours
Resolved that a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon the minutes of the
lodge that a copy be given the bereaved
family and that the city papers be re
quested to publish the same
