Pi ess dispatches of yesterday con
tained the following interesting infoiin
ation: Articles of incorporation of the Big
Horn Railway company have been
filed in Wyoming, the incorporatois
being General Manager George W.
Holdrcge of the Burlington; G. W.
Loomis, his assistant; W. P. Dinkcc,
auditor; A. D. Alice, assistant auditor;
and J. E. Kclby, solicitor. The capi
tal stock will bo $5,000,000.
The Big Horn Railway is the branch
of the Burlington planned to run
through Big Horn and Fremont coun
ties, Wyoming. This branch will ex
tend south from the Burlington's lines
in Northern Wyoming, and will be a
rival of the branch to bo built by the
Northwestern from its main line at Cas
per to the Shoshone reservation.
The opening of this reservation will
probably take place next summer, and
both the Burlington and Northwestern
will begin building as soon as the bill
providing for the segregation and sale
of the northeastern section of the res
ervation has been passed by congress.
New Hoincstcnd Hill.
Congressman Kinkaid today intro
duced a bill giving preferential right to
a certain class of cntrymen under the
640-acie act, commonly known as the
Kinkaid act, to those settlers who were
deprived of their settlement by icason
of lands bciuir withdrawn under the
irrigation act and now turned back to
He also introduced a bill giving
entrymen under the Pathfiiuder irriga
tion project in Nebraska until May,
1907, to commence residence. This,
bill is in effoct amendatory to the
national irrigation act wherein entry
men have only six months to commence
residence. As the Pathfinder project
is not expected to be completed for
several years, Judge Kinkaid believes
it will woik a hardship upon those per
sons locating along the canal to take
up their residence when there is no
water in the stream. His bill extends
the time of commencing residence and
if passed will give those who have
already located 011 the land the right to
obtain leave of absence from the local
land office until May, 1907.
During the past year there has been
a decided effort made to start school
libraries in Nebraska. Richardson
leads as the banner county have in
vested over $1,700.00 in the past year.
Box Butte has made a beginng, there
being several good libraries in the
county schools, and many teachers are
interesting themselves in the good
work this winter. The first entertain
ment this winter for that purpose was
given last Friday night at the iiome
of Mr. Brower in district No. 1 same
being a box social, at which a very
pleasant evening was spent by those
present, every one enjoying the enter
tainment offered by the teacher Miss
Fanny McCoy and pupils. Ten dol
lars were received which will at once
be invested in good 'library books for
the school.
The Lolspeich brothers near Hyannis
who have been hunting a couple of
gray wolves for the past week, have at
last killed one of them. It is the larg

weighing a hundred and twenty-five
pounds. The two wolves had been in
the neighborhood for the past three
months killing calves, cows and horses
to the value of $500 or ?6oo for the
boys. On one occasion they even kill
ed one of their dogs. There is a largo
bounty on wolvos in that county and

Hurts Thief
Some two weeks ago J. B. Gray sent
a valuable suit of underwear to' his
washer woman together with his grist
of laundry. When she caino to got the
wash Iroiu the line, some miscieant
had stolen the underwear valued at
57.50. The poor woman bemoaned her
sad fate and prepared to icp.iy her
patron today. Imagine her amaze
ment this morning, when she found
the missing garments at her door, with
the following note pinned to them
written in a legible hand, hut with no
name signed. "I have couchiJcd to
return these goods and ask forgiveness.
I believe it better to work hatder and
enjo le&ti bodily com fot tn than to
cnduic compunction of conscience, to
say nothingof what else might follow.
You may wonder if the Preaching at
the Baptist Chinch, had anything to do
with it. and it is but Justice to say IT
If any one doubts the efficacy of
prayer, or the good results of revival
meetings, let him forever hold his
peace. And yet Mr. Gray, his land
lotd and the washer-woman are scepti
cal, prefeiring to believe that the thief's
"what might follow" to be fear of cap
ture, rather than rcpentctice. Another
sceptic said ho believed tho suit was
returned because the thief was not
largo enough to fill it. But Gray and
the laundress are happy, just the same.
