Horse Died in Harness
A horse driven by parties of South
SIcCook by the names of Coffey and
Pettit died in the harness Sunday
just east of the city on the Indianola
xoad in front of the Deveny place
The parties were seen driving the
horses at a gallop for considerable
distance and it is said that the death
of one of the animals was due to
over driving The horses belonged
to the father of one of the drivers
The police force was called to
South McCook during the afternoon
to quiet an ugly fight between these
parties a disturbance probably a
result of the drive and the horses
We believe no arrests were made
for either offense
A drayman was sent out next day
to dispose of the dead animal

Trenton Too Big
Last Saturday the Trenton high
school football team was victorious
over the McCook high school team
by a score of 11 to 0 Considering
the sizes of the teams the score
ought to have been 50 to 0 The j
Trenton team was larger by a good
deal than the last years McCook
team During the last half of the
game no score was made and the Mc
Cook team kept the ball in Trenton
territory most of the time McCook
gave a splendid exhibition of the
forward pass plays in all variations
and the fact that football is by no
means a game of beef and weight
About fifty McCook people went
along The girls of McCook should
be complimented on the splendid
rooting support they gave the Mc
Cook boys There were no injuries
even of a slight nature on either side
Tomorrow the McCook team goes
to Oxford to play the return game
with them Two or three first team
players who were not able to be in
the Trenton game will be in the
line up at Oxford tomorrow

McCook will contest for honors at

Will Inspect McCook Schools
The state department of public in
struction will inspect our public
schools next Thursday and Friday
All schools doing normal training
work are inspected annually Mc
Cook high school is the only school
west of Beaver City which is recog
nized as a normal training high
school This does not mean that the
whole purpose of the high school is
to turn out teachers Many people
seem to draw this wrong conclusion
It simply means that the high school
in addition to its general course
gives this ADDED opportunity for
those desiring to teach
Our aim is at all times to provide
the citizens of McCook with every
thing that they require in drugs and
other goods carried in first class phar
macies In fact we endeavor to keep
in advance of the demand if possible
by keeping informed as to all ad
vanes in the science of pharmacy
throughout the world and keeping our
stock up to each advance
You will find here not only all the
latest drugs required by the medical
profession but also the sick room
goods and toilet requisites that are
of value Our stock is always ade
quate and affords in many lines an
assortment not to be had elsewhere

My Cinderella Girl drew a large
and warmly appreciative audience to
the Temple theatre Tuesday even
ing Though in general very like the
average musical comedy there were
some piquant points of dissimilarity
and this very dissimilitude doubtless
was the companys chief jewel A
college comedy featuring base ball
it had all the snap and go and vocif
erous action that the average theatre
goer could comfortably assimilate
There was something doing with
pauseless continuity and in bewilder
ing haste at times to make a speed
ometer dizzy Some quite clever danc
ing vocal efforts of average quality
and a generous though not keen com
edy provided an entertainment full
enjoyed by all

Considerable Increase
The membership of the McCook
Commercial Club during the past
week has been increased by the ad
dition of some 10 or 15 new members
This looks good to us But there are
others several scores who ought to
be enrolled in the club i
No one organization in a city can
do as much effective substantial
work for the advancement in all
es financial commercial etc of an
up-to-date modern city as a strong
harmonious and well directed com
mercial club can accomplish

when Jim Wintersteen of the Stan
dard Bridge Co introduced his friend
and crony Stonebreaker also of that
company as the new Baptist parson
Harry with alacrity and completeness
fell into Jims joke trap after the
dominie had placed himself on record
as being a liberal parson When
later Rev Stonebreaker insisted
upon a glass with the boys in one
of the Main Avenue thirst empor
iums Harry took a neat tumble to
himself and has since been kept busy
making it right with the boysr in
the usual way
