From the NEBRASKA CITY NEWS, Saturday, April 25, 1885 (in part)

McCook (Red Willow Co.), April 17... left McCook on last Wednesday morning in an open spring wagon, containing five other passengers, bound for the land office at Oberlin, Kan., to see what was to be seen, and if possible to become possessor of some of the promised land in $bleeding Kansas$. However, before leaving the town we will try and give you a bird's eye view of the same -on paper. McCook contains about 2,000 inhabitants, and is situated on a side hill, the site being a most beautiful one. The Lincoln Land company have put In water works, and the stores as well as the residences are all supplied with water in this manner* This is the end of the middle and western divisions of the Republican Valley road and the B. & M. company have expended a great deal of money to make it one of the prettiest towns in the state. The business houses and residences are nearly all constructed of pine and of the latest design. Occasionally, you see a house built of stone, but rarely. The residences are all surrounded by nice yards and present a very beautiful appearance. Our crowd was somewhat smitten with the town and would have located their claims near the sane were it possible. South of the town is the Republican river from which the water to supply the town is taken. It is not a very wide stream, but the water is clear and not impregnated with alkali as much as some of the streams in your portion of the country. We crossed the long wooden bridge over this stream and were on our way to Kansas.

The hotel accomodations at Oberlin are the poorest imaginable with bed bugs and fleas in abundance# We returned to McCook this afternoon and will start home in the morning. Every train brings a fresh supply of land seekers and the stages are kept busy day and night carrying them over into the state of Kansas in quest of some of that 'promised' land.

While strolling up the street to take a look at the two large skating rinks which have been erected in this place, we had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Wylie CORNUTT, of Culbertson, and Miss Bena TAIR, a former resident of Nebraska City, but who is now married to a prominent gentleman of this town, whose name we cannot just now call to mind. Both ladies were the perfect picture of health and had just come in from Culbertson. ---E.D.M.
