The New Congregational Pastor
Last Sunday morning and evening
Rev E T Bayne late of Farnam this
state lately called to the pastorate of
the McCook church appeared -before
the Congregational church people of
our city for the first time as their pastor
preaching acceptable sermons on both
occasions to fair audiences notwith
standing the rather meager announce
ment of the services of the day
Rev Bayne comes to this pastorate
under a unanimous call with goodly
recommendations and a record of duty
well performed behind him and a
promising field of labor before him He
is a young man with scholarly attain
ments and excellent antecedents The
Tribune hopes he will have a fine record
of accomplishment in this city and for
the church and people he comes to serve
By Getting a 320 Acre Homestead in
Eastern Colorado
Why pay rent to a greedy landlord
when you can get 320 acres that will
cost you little or nothing The people
who buy land today are the rich people
of tomorrow If you dont get a claim
now you will pay some one else for their
foresight Get some land of your own
and be truly independent I have
about thirty claims I can show you

Temple Theatre Nov 2nd
It is not often that an audience will
stay in a theatre and applaud the finale
of a performance but in The Royal
Chef which cames to the Temple
theatre McCook Nov 2nd the feature
of the last act is one to keep them in
their seats until the last curtain and
which always receives an outburst of
applause which would do credit to a
big number in the show The reason
for this is the rain of confetta which de
cends all over the stage at the every end
of the show Over 8000 yards of varied
colored confetta or ribbon paper comes
down from the flies enveloping chorus
and principals The girls of the chorus
are each supplied with several rolls of
this confetti and they throw it out into
the audience The effect is a very
pretty one Tickets on sale at McCon

Most Notable Gathering of Masons in Citys History--150 Nobles and
30 Novices Here Great Ceremonial Session and Banquet
Parade of Nobles and Exhibition Drill of Sesostris
Prize Winning Patrol
Last Thursday afternoon and night
McCook witnessed a most unusual dem
onstration in Masonry in the presence
and ceremonial sossion of Sesostris
shrine of Lincoln in our midst Per
haps no other town of the size of Mc
Cook in Nebraska has ever had the hon
or of entertaining this notable body
and this distinction came to this city
largely through the fact of the recent
completion here of oie of the finest
Masonic temples n Nebraska and by
grace of the indominitable efforts of
Noble Willetts
The nobles were here from all over
this section of Nebraska with a sprink
ling of Kansas and Coloradan shriners
among them numbering in total 150
The afternoon and early part of the
night were utilized in conferring the de
gree on 27 novices who wore initiated
into all the mysteries of the degree
which has earned the title of the play
ground of Masonry
At about midnight the nobles and
former novices were seated at a festal
board iu Menards hall presided over
by the ladies of the Eastern Star who
served a six course banquet of ideal
particulars as the appended menu will
Oyster Cocktail
Cheese Wafers Celery Olives
Cream Iiouillon
Croutons Pickles
KscallopcU Chicken Mashed Potatoes
Cold Tongue with Jelly
Peas in Cases
Parker House Rolls Butter
Perfection Salad Mayonnaise
Brick Ice Cream Assorted Cake
Cigars Mints
But a menu ia only half of the delights
of a banquet The toasts and toast-
master and response must be reckoned
with and the story is but briefly told
below It was a season of keenest plea
sure to all and was voted a memorable
affair by all participants
Illustrious Pot ntate Sbinn in intro
ducing the toastmaster of the evening
Congressman G W Norris graciously
and gracefully acknowledged the appre
ciation of the officers and members of
Sesostris shrine of the most hospitable
and lively welcome and treatment ac
corded them by the Masons and citizens
ot McCook He also read a telegram
from Wichita Kansas announcing the
institution of the baby shrine of
American Midian in that city on
that date with a class of novices of
about 200
Richmond Rag captured the nobles
patrol and all and the orchestra had to
do it some more
Among the old masters and classics
vocalized by the nobles during the ban
quet were
Were here because were here I
feel like I feel like I feel like I feel
How dry I am how dry I am Each
and all were feelingly offered to familiar
Novice vVolff to Novice Johnson I
am all in
To much Johnson
Hurrah for Norris
That orchestra was no Rube organ
ization if they did draer Joe out of the
alfalfa to have him answer to roll call
Few Nebraska cities can produce a
metropalitan orchestra of twelve pipces
the equal of the one which delighted
the shriners Thursday night
It was a champaigne banquet with
out the popping of corks and the ab
normal caputs in the morning
Top of the Market
Every stockman and farmer naturally
seeks to secure for his stock the highest
and best price the market affords Mc
Cook is well situated in this respect in
having a dealer who deals squarely with
those who bring hogs and cattle here
for sale D C Marsh is thoroughly
acquainted with the stock proposition
in southwestern Nebraska He knows
the worth of stock and pays the right
full price aii the time
Change of Service Hours
Services at St Patricks Catholic
church have been slightly changed for
the fall and winter months The early
morning hour is 830 instead of 800 as
formerly and the 1000 hour has been
changed to 1030
The visiting nobles were compliment
ary in their reference to su
peib Masonic temple and theatre a
building not excelled in the land in a
city uf our size and class
Let the sucker go
Toastmaster Norris took to his duties
as naturally as a canvas back to water
with a brief foreword clever introduc
tions and a touching concluding ode to
the babies
Novice Noble Culbertson of our city
briefly welcomed the guests to our city
in terms which left nought to be desired
in cordiality and genuineness of hospit
The response by Noble Quigley had
the ring of appreciation and enjoyment
of the efforts of the people to entertain
and please His bouquet to the daugh
ters of Eve was the conviction that in
the order of creation woman was easily
i first
Noble Meeker of Imperial had an as
signed topic but took complete avant
Hge of digressive expediency and pluck
ed amanv from the national birds tail
and scattered them with painstaking
particularity and vehement volubility
Noble Wilson of Lincoln responded
to How I hate to go back to a dry
town Notwithstanding the toast
masters citation of a learned judicial
decision that six bottles dont make a
case Lawyer Wilson made up quite a
satisfactory case of some verbal prolix
Our Wives received brief attention
at the hands of Noble Robertson of At
wood Kansas who incidentally made a
plea for increased fraternity between
the sister states
Noble Cornell of Lincoln could have
told a book full about Our Sweet
hearts but didnt contenting himself
with the Health Heres to our sweet
hearts and our wivts may they never
Noble Hill of Imperial made a satis
factory explanation of Why I never
married quoted briefly from Tennyson
and concluded with an apostrophe to
Noble Thomas of Harvard humor
ously almost feelingly described his
impressions as a novice the delights of
the oasis after the burning sands and
other etceteras His recent experiences
bniVCiver constiainedhim to paraphrase
How dry I am to How sore I am
He then concluded his clever and al
ways enjoyable post prandial remarks
with a particularly apropos Health
Heres to thee and thy folks
From me and my folks
Surely there never were folks
Since folks were folks
Ever loved any folks
Half as much
As me and my folks
Love thee and thy folks
Novice Wolff of our city uncorked his
supply of facetiae in giving utterance to
his emotions while crossing the burn
ing sands and put an oratorical period
to his toast by a glowing tribute to the
Masonic order and the shrine in particu
The toastmaster wanted Noble Wil
letts to tell the boys how he managed to
finance a 860000 temple out of his sti
pend as a conductor for your uncle Jim
Hill but George declined and subsided
with a hearty expression of apprecia
tion of the notble visit of Sesostris and
their great ceremonial session here
The resident Shriners are mindful of
the courtesy of the business men of the
city in decorating their stores in honor
of the visiting Shriners and they use
this means of communicating their
thanks therefor

The Swedes Win
Our High School boys lost a game of
foot ball last Saturday at Holdrege to
the Terrible Swedes by a score of
5 toO
Our boys outplayed them from the
start but on account of a lack of unity
coupled with the loss of three strong
players in the person of Joe Moore
Frank ORourke and Walter Campbell
and a moment of demoralization allow
ed one touch down
They weighed in at about 145 pounds
practically the same weight as the
Scandinavians who had throe men
weighing over 200 pounds each yet otly
averaged 145 pounds
Charlie Milligan was a groat star and
Charlie Nelms could never be beaten on
a high school team Ward Evans was
very slow and taking Walter Camp
bells place could not Ell it
Holdrego treated the team in a royal
manner No city ever accorded a team
any nicer visit The not unusual
brawls disputes etc were entirely lack
ing Not a word was exchanged and
only 45 seconds were taken out for
time in the entire game it being the
fastest cleanest football ever put on in
this part of Nebraska
Holdrege will be here November 13th
for a return game Let us get out and
raise a crowd that will more than dupli
cate their 5300 ticket sale
McCook should be proud of her team
No better class of players can be found
their cleen cut playing proves it
Men with years of football experience
witnessing the game vouch for its being
the fastest hardest contest ever seen in
this part of the state
