It Is Up To McCook
As tho time approaches for the open
ing of tbo McCook chautauqua it bo
comes moro and moro evident that if
McCook desires to continuo in the
chautauqua circuit anothor year she
must do her very best to make good
this year Wo are willing to pour our
money into sports without stint and we
can truthfully sny without profit but
nro wo just as willing to pay a fow dol
lars as compared with the expenditures
for sports in somothing elevating in
structive and entertaining It is up to
McCook right now to determine The
Tribune hopes the verdict will bo over
whelmingly in favor of the chautauqua
and that the sale of season tickets to
this most commendable enterprise shall
rapidly increase the short time inter
vening bofore the season opens Satur
day August 22nd
The Tribune encourages legitimate
lawful sports indulged in lawfully and
in reason but there is more in life oven
to the youth than merely having a
good time The chautauqua gives
the opportunity of having a rational
good time and at the same receiv
ing something enduring and elevating
and instructive and worthwhile
The Tribune appeals for the better
things of life Let us not waste too
much of our valuable time and hard
earned money in frivolity Let us get
something out of life for the mental
and spiritual man Let us feed our
heads and hearts and souls a little while
we journey along

tauqua today

know the quality of the pudding
Chewing the string is not the most sat
isfactory means of ascertaining Its
eating the pudding that tells the whole
story Same with meat It may make
your mouth water to read about juicy
tender corn fed meat But complete
satisfaction and realization comes only
with the eating of the moat and it is
here that Marsh the meat man gets in
to the game His steaks roasts cutlets
in all the kinds of meats have the quality
ofshowing you notwithstanding--they-
do not come from Missouri He wants
an opportunity to make good Try
the Marsh meat market for anything
seasonable in his line

Saving the Boys
Under tho above head the following
tribute to the able work being done by
Judge Lee Estelle in the juvenile court
of Omaha is paid by his old friend Rich
ard L Metcalf in Mr Bryans Com
fo one expects perfection at once in
tho administration of juvenile court
laws but tho marked success of Judge
Lee Estelle of Omaha in reaching and
saving the boys is an evidence of what
great results may be achieved in this
great work So long did society enact
laws to protect itself from the individ
ual that it overlooked the necessity of
enacting laws to protect the individual
from society But of late tho protec
tion of the individual has been given at
tention with the result that wo now
have child labor laws employers liabil
ity laws safety appliance laws and oth
er laws of similar character At the
very foundation of all these laws how
ever is the law protecting the children
from the greed and carelessness of so
ciety The old plan of herding delin
quent and so called incorrigibles in
the same bull pen with old and seas
oned criminals was only a plan for tho
propagation of crime It made crimin
als instead of protecting society The
new and saner plan is to prevent boys
and girls becoming criminals They aro
not only protected from the greed that
would rob them of their childhood and
chance in order to profit by their toil
but they are protected by being taken
from bad environment and put in the
midst of proper surroundings
It requires not only a knowledge of
boys but the knack of interesting them
and gaining their confidence in order to
successfully prosecute this great work
Judge Estelle posesses these attributes
in rich measure and his work in Oma
ha is bearing rich fruit It is gratify
ing to know that such men are growing
more and more in demand as chautauqua
lecturers When men of great legal
learning like Judge Estelle tell society
how to handle tho boy problem great
results may be expected results that
will be of incalculable benefit to society
Those who have heard Judge Estelle
are a unit in endorsing his work as a
judge and as a lecturer His years of
experience in the work his warm and
tender sympathies and his magnetic
personality combine to make him
markedly successful in this great work
Our people will be glad to Know that
Judge Eetelle will appearm our Chau
tauqua platform tor one or more addres
Fire in an Ice House
About two oclock Sunday morning
the ice house in the rear of Mitchell
Clydes saloon was discovered to be on
fire An alarm was sounded by the en
gineer of the electric light plant and
the fire was soon under control The
structure is an old shell of wood cov
ered with tin the wooden part of the
building was pretty well consumed to
gether with a quantity of ice
Being within the firu limits the ques
tion of repairsis a troublesome one
and this may be the chief item of
expense althoughthe damage and loss
will total 3200
The time and place were both favorable
for a serious fire in the business district
and the result is a matter for congratu
are a revelation of richness and delic
iousness to the housewife who has al
ways used ordinary spices
McConnells spices are pure and fresh
having the strength aroma and fine
flavors which nature alone can give
Use them in pickling canning and

their origin their life history nnd reme
dies that influence toward their exterm
There will bo lectures and discussions
on the composition and value of grains
Such topics as tho composition and
characteristics of heavy and light weight
wheat oats and barlev showing that
tho heavy weight grains aro desirable
because they contain n larger total
amount of food This with a more ma
tured germ gives the heavy weight ker
nel the advantage for seed purposes
Starchy and glutenous properties in
grains uniformity in composition of
wheat grown from a uniform lot of seeds
showing superior individuality in both
