fast as possible By one oclock 1130
words had been telegraphed direct into
tho offko of the Cleveland office

Ice House Much Damaged
Monday afternoon the largo west ice
house of the Burlingtdn at this place
was much damaged by fire oaused prob
ably from sparks from a lignite fed
switch engine
It required two hours of fighting
both company and city having lines of
hose playing on the flamed to control
the fire which however damaged the
building and contents to the extent of
several thousand dollars meanwhile
By stubborn work and concentrated
effort the bojs kept the flames from
communicating to the large icn house
on the east side
About three oclock Wednesday
morning fire broke out in the building
again doubtless from live embers but
the fire wat Boon extinguished
Tuesday afternoon sparks from an
engine communicated to straw and rub
bish at different points along west B
street and the department was again
called out to extinguish the flinies
which was done without any damage
worth mentioning About the samo
time a small prairie fire between the
original town and West McCook added
to the interest of the occasion
A Quiet Home Wedding
Last Sunday evening at the home of
Dispacther and Mrs T B Campbell
Miss Ruth G Campbell and Mr Thomas

of he Congregational churjh performed
the ceremony
A wedding supper was served after
the ceremony and the young couplo
took number 14 the same evening for
their future temporary home near Mon
rovia Kansas
The bride is the charming daughter
of Dispatcher and Mrs Campbell and is
a genuine daughter of McCook having
been born in this city She counts a
wide circle of dear friends in thiB city
The groom is a Burlington fireman high
ly esteemed by his fellow firemen andjay
the company for his sterling worth and
efficiency in the service He temporari
ly retires from the service taking a long
layoff and for tho present will reside on
the parental farm in Kansas
The Tribune voices the sentiment
of many in wishing them much happi
ness and prosperity
