Earl Cunningham Charles McFar
land and Joseph Dack three young
men of this city and neighborhood ap
peared before Judge Orr at chambers
Monday charged with stealing and
carrying away four hogs the property
of Mrs Sarah E Christian of Perry pre
cinct and valued at 1000
Joseph Dack was allowed by the
court to plead guilty to petty larceny
and was fined 510 and costs amounting
to 2385 and was required to make
restitution to Mrs Christian twice the
value of the hogs or 8000
Earl Cunningham and gCharles Mc
Farland each pleaded guilty to grand
larceny and were sentenced to be con
fined in the state penitentiary at Lin
coln for a term of one year and a half
The young men were tauen to Lincoln
Tuesday morning by Deputy Sheriff
Dick Osborn
This is a pathetic picture but it may
have its use in serving as an example
to be shunned by other young men in
this city and neighborhood who may be
on the road to a similar fate on account
of bad company and unlawful habits
Attention of Tribune subscribers is
directed to the fact that one half of 1908
is now gone and some of the subscriptions
of the year remain unpaid The law
requires that subscriptions to weekly
newspapers must be paid some time
during the year Look at the date

Just as The Tribune goes to press this afternoon word comes
over the wire of the nomination of William Jennings Bryan of Ne
braska for the Democratic candidate for president on the first
McCook and this Section of the State Visited by a Very
Heavy Storm Sunday Night
McCook and vicinity were visited
Sunday night by the severest storm of
the year a tremendous downpour of
rain being accompanied by hail and a
fierce high wind
The hail fortunately did not cover a
wide territory but was destructive of
gardens grain and corn fields where it
touched The wind was strong and
caused damage in many minor ways all
over the city but happily nowhere in a
large degree
The roof on the Elza Ward brick
building on west 1st street South Mc
Cook was blown off letting the front
gable fall into the house The house
is occupied by Chas Boyle and family
several of whom were injured but none
severely or seriously The walls and
interior of the building were also consid
erably damaged by hail and rain
Bird life suffered severely In some
localities where the feathered tribe were
want to roost the fatalities were espe
cially numerous particularly among the
young birds which were blown out of
their nests and pounded to death by
the hail
Con Kriegers new barn on McDowell
street was blown down and the wreck
age moved about 150 feet J W Jones
barn in the northwestern part of town
also succumbed before the storm
Two or three of the large panes of
glass in the front of the C L DeGroff
Co store building were blown in by the
wind or broken by the hail But the
damage from this source was small
About three feet of water found its way
into the cellar delaying the work of
moving the structure now in progress
Pumps had to be used in reducing the
water in the cellar
The Burlington was not a heavy
loser but suffered numerous items of
Should Be Doubled
Comparing the membership total of
the McCook Commercial club with some
other Nebraska towns and cities that
have similar organizations The Tri
bune is unwillingly forced the conclu
sion that the McCook club has just about
half the membership it should have
A vigorous effort should be made by
the organization to double its member
ship and we feel assured that this can
be accomplished if the men of McCook
who are intelligently interested in its
development and growth can be made
to feel and understand the value and
importance of a large wideawake pro
gressive Commercial club in the ad
vancement of the citys best interests
along all lines
Let us all get together and intelli
gently persistently and unitedly boost
for a bigger and a better McCook
Farmers Attention

mont Creamery Co of Crete Neb

checks every shipment To those part

creameries if you will divide give one

damage Part of the shingles on the
roof of sections 24 25 27 and 29 were
blown off and all three of the smoke
stacks to the heating and steam plant
were blown down Tho roof of the cool
shed was also slightly damaged Their
largest item was the delay in work
caused by the downfall of the smoke
The water was high enough at the
foot of Main avenue to run over the
Burlington track several inches deep
and found its way into the baggage
room of the headquarters building
Numerous coalsheds and other out
buildings were turned over and trees
blown down all over town
The rainfall was by far the heaviest
at any one time this season The Burl
ington reports 175 inches and tho Bar
nett Lumber Co 251 inches Both
have similar guages and they are only
a few hundred feet apart
Full many a cellar was filled with
flood water Sunday night
Caved in sewer ditches made the al
leys undesirable for heavy traffic for a
few days after the storm
The electric light people came in for
their usual share of grief as a result of
the strong wind
Some debris from the Ward house in
South McCook smashed in some of the
window of E C Underbills residence
and the roof of the same rests in the
Underhill garden
The big trees about the water works
suffered greatly from the gale a number
being blown down and others broken
The west wall of the McCook laundry
building on West Dennison street was
considerably damaged
Telephone connections were disturbed
considerably by the storm
Set the Fans Afire
Tuesdays game of baseball between
McCook and Red Cloud was perhaps
the most remarkable one ever played
in McCook Eight innings were played
without either club scoring In the
ninth inning both clubs scored one run
each In the sixteenth inning Red
Cloud scored again and won the game
by a score of 2 to 1 Bennett pitched
the entire sixteen innings for the locals
Miller catcher for the home team re
ceived a broken finger during the game
The game aroused the greatest en
thusiasm and interest
mcook won the second
McCook captured Wednesdays game
by a score of 5 to 2 in a game without
special features
McCook had yesterdavs game won
up to the ninth inning At this junc
ture the balloon went up and Red
Cloud raced around the diamond seven
times McCook could only increase
her lead of one by two more runs
Hence the final score was 7 to 3 in fav
or of the visitors

procure the right paint for the job

Not Won But Just Begun
A dangerous porcentngo of tho people
of McCook aro acting as though tho
teniplo opora house project wore an
fact rather than a
just begun enterprise
The Tribune wishes to state to tho
people of McCook and with especial
emphasis to those who have not sub
scribed for stock that this groat enter
prise is but fairly begun and that tho
big end of the work is still ahead of us
Instead of the Btock being all sub
scribed and the money all provided bo
tween 15000 and 20000 must still bo
raised and it behooves every patriotic
citizen of McCook who has not done his
duty in this tho greatest public enter
prise ever undertaken by McCook to go
down into his pocket and subscribe for
stock in this project to the fullest ox
tent of his ability
How soon and how well tho enterprise
shall prosper depends upon how soon
and how well those respond to the im
perative call for more stock subscrip
We must have more money and tho
people of McCook must ALL assist in
raising it not a few or a part of them
