P E O Initiation
One of the most pleasant evenings
in the history of Chapter X P E O
was held at the home of the presi
dent Mrs Anna Schobel last Friday
evening March 31
This meeting served a two fold pur
pose To give the beautiful new homo
of the president a satisfactory house
warming and introduce to the mys
teries and initiate into the P E O
two novitiates Mrs Carrie Pade Mid
Miss Ada SKjclver The work of in
itiation was presided over with her
customary grace and dignity by ex
President of Chapter X Mrs Callie
Wilcox following which the hostess
and Mrs May Hanson served refresh
ments at tables placed in the club
room of the Schobel home
Here when the plates were emptied
and the fire leaped higher and brighter
in the grate at the end of the long
comfortable room the lights were
turned off and the chairs moved from
the tables that each might see the
beauty of the open fire Quotations
were indulged in by some reminiscen
ces by some and then unconsciously
silence that rarest of all accomplish
ments took hold cf each one A
deep toned clock from somewhere told
of the lateness of the hour and all
felt as they started homeward that
another evening of perfect understand
ing and mutual improvement had
been theirs and that new strength
had been given Chap X in the two
new members added that night
Thomas J Ruggles Passed to the Be
yond Monday Morning
Word reached here Monday morn
ing of the death of Thomas J Rug
gles in Indianola that morning after
an illness of some duration Burial
was made Tuesday afternoon in the
Indianola cemetery
T J Ruggles was an early settler
near this city where he lived until
a few years ago when he retired
from active farm life and moved into
Indianola He has been ailing for a
long while and death came as a re
lief from pain
The wife and daughters have much
tender sympathy from friends in Mc
Cook and this part of the county
Tom Ruggles was a rugged and
sturdy character such as developed
this west land

McCook Is the Logical and the Ideal Location for This
Great School
In Every Essential Particular McCook Stands Preeminent in the Terri
tory to be Served by This College
A meeting of members of the Mc
Cook Commercial club was held last
Wednesday and a committee was se
lected to go to Lincoln and present
McCooks splendid advantages for the
location of the Agricultural College
recently authorized by the Nebras
ka legislature
Messrs A Galusha J E Kelley
L W McConnell William Woods J
R Stansberry P Walsh F A Pen
nell F M Kimmell H P Waite
W II Mills Chas Skalla Lon Cone
C L Fahnestock Jeff Gallagher and
Frank Phillips were named and took
the night train for the state capitol
Last Thursday morning they met
with the State Board of Public Lands
and Buildings presenting through se
lected speakers its claims and advant
ages as a location for the proposed
and authorized school
These claims and arguments seemed
to make a very favorable impression
upon the board who will in due time
come to McCook and look over the
situation before making final decision
in the matter of location
Among some of the arguments ad
vanced by the members of the com
mittee were the following
A glance at the map of Southwest
ern Nebraska or a moments consid
eration of the territory embraced
within the lines drawn by the
lature west of the 99th degree of
longitude and south of the 41st de
gree of latitude establishes one of
the chiefost and unanswerable argu
ments why McCook should be desig
nated by the Nebraska Board of Pub
lic Lands and Buildings as the loca
tion for the Agricultural College
namely its geographically ideal and
logical location There is no great
er consideration It affords the great
est good to the greatest number
Properly assuming that the legis
latures wise purpose in appropriat
ing 100000 for an Agricultural Col
lege is the development of Southwest
ern Nebraska where conditions make
such assistance from the state es
pecially desirable McCook offers un
excellable attractions from this view
point being the conspicuous hub of
the greater portion of the large terri
tory to be thus served
As to Soil
McCook presents the widest possi
bilities for scientific and experimental
work to sn Agricultural College in its
broad diversity of soil in its avail
able Republican river bottom land and
adjoining upland embracing the ad
vantages of irrigation and dry land
cultivation and experimentation
Sugar Beets
In no section of the west does the
development of Sugar Beet culture
present more interesting study than
in the near vicinity of McCook This
is destined to become a prominent
feature in the intensive agriculture of
this part of Nebraska and deserving
and demanding all the schools can
add to the practical agriculturist is
a fruitful reason for the establish
ment of the Agricultural College at
McCook where so many and vital
problems are presented for solution
and development for this section of
Stock Raising
One of the specific purposes of the
bill is the development of the great
stock raising industry of Nebraska
And in this connection it need only
be cited that for more than a quarter-century
McCook has been the cen
ter of and a dynamic influence in
both thoroughbred and range stock
industry Some of Nebraskas great
est thoroughbred herds in several
breeds as well as a number of the
states largest ranches are intimately
tributary to this city where the state
and its scientific animal industry de
partment would thus have superior
and wide range opportunities to foster
and forward this princely member of
Nebraskas twin industry agriculture
and stock raising
Railroad Facilities
In this realm McCook stands eas
ily preeminent being the headquar
ters city of one of the greatest divi
sions on the Burlington system af
fording superior advantages in both
passenger and freight service a con
sideration not to be lightly weighed
in the important matter of the lo
cation of a state institution
Besides location soil sugar beet
culture stock raising railroad facili
ties etc McCook presents all the
ready made up-to-date advantages and
privileges of an up-to-the-minute mod
ern city Water works sewer sys
tem electric and gas plants church
privileges not to be overlooked in
considering a location of a state
school subject to expansion
Last Friday evening a most en
thusiastic meeting of members of the
McCook Commercial club and of in
terested citizens was held in the club
rooms The work covered by the
committee was gone over and a coursa
was mapped out for future activity
The following new committees were
appointed and the labor of presenting
McCooks case before the people and
the board of public lands and building
was placed in their hands with authoi
ity to do all needed work to accom
plish this desirable end the location
of the new Agricultural school in Mc
