BURLINGTON TO BUILD
Joint Arrangements with North
western to Thermopolis.
A dispatch from Omaha of the toth
hist, says that General Chatles F.
Manderson, general solicitor of the
Burlington, has returned from Chey
enne, where he went last Monday to
arrange with B. T. White, representing
the Northwestern, for the joint use of
tracks by the Burlington and North
western through tho Hot Springs reser
vation in the Shoshone country. The
board of land commissioners of tho
state of Wyoming and the board of
charities and reforms granted the two
lines the right to build a line of rail
road for their joint use. "This right,"
says General Manderson, "cartics 200
feet in width of right of way. The
Burlington has arranged for station
grounds and depots in the town of Ther
mopolis. Tho point of dcpartinc from
the Toluca branch of the Burlington
will either be Frannie or Garland."
Will Organize K.Tordcr.
At a meeting held last Friday night,
in which a number of our citizens par
ticipated, steps were taken for the or
ganization of a Knights of Columbus
court in this city within the next few
weeks. This order is well known
throughout tho west, where it is fast
becoming one of the foremost fraternal
insurance and social organizations.
Committees were appointed and the
preliminary steps taken to hasten the
work. This will bring to this city a
very large crowd of visitors on the day
when the initiation takes place. This
order is of a religious character, being
composed of members of the Catholic
faith exclusively, or rather those who
are active in the exercise of their relig
ious duties, as laid down by Iho church.
Dentil of Miss Mac Kennedy.
Miss Mae Kennesy, sister of -Willis
Kennedy, one of the popular freight
conductors running out of this city,
departed this life last Sunday morning,
after a lingering illness with the dread
disease," consumption. The young
lady was known to be in the shadow
of death for several days. All that
human skill 6ould suggest was dono to
restore her to health, but to no avail,
and Sunday morning at'tcn o'clock She
breathed her last. As is so often the
case with victims of this malady, a
short time before she died, Miss Ken
nedy arose from her couch, remarking
that she felt so much better and was
sure she would soon recover her health.
She walked across the room unaided,
but suddenly complained of loosing
her eyesight, when she was assisted to
the bed and within a few seconds life
The death of this most estimable
young lady is surrounded with con
ditions that arc indeed pathetic. Miss
Kennedy, together with her brother
Willis, was the only survivor of the
late Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Kennedy,
who were among the most esteemed
citizens of Alliance. The family con
sisted of nine children all of whom
have passed away within a short time
of each other, with the exception of
Willis who was the only surviver of
the family to follow his beloved sister
to the grave. Miss Kennedy was just
at the threshold of womanhood and
possessed a pleasing and ladylike dis
position that drew friends around her
in an endearing circle. She was a
student at one of the prominent sister
convents in Omaha through the past
vear and returned to this city during
the holidays, when she began to show
signs of failing health. A trained
nurse attended Miss Kennedy and the
devoted brother who now alone mourns
her demise, left nothing undone to
smooth the path of the precious life
that was surely Hearing the portal of
heaven. When the devoted sisters,
WHY NOT BUILD?
We will loan you the money that you need for
building' your house and you can return it on the
monthly paywent plan a little each month. A
great many people do this with the result that in a
few years' time they own their home. You are
foolish to continue paying rent when you can buy
your home with your rent money. A good resi
dence property in a growing and thriving town is
always a first-class investment. Our interest rates
are very reasonable.
Please do not forg'et that we write fire insurance.

who moulded the tender mind of their
pupil, heard of her serious physical
condition, they hastened to her bed
side and with the same devotion that a
mother showers affection upon her own
child, so did these sisters tenderly en
courage the dying voting lady with
words and acts of kindness.
Tho funeral took place Tuesday
morning at Holy Rosaiy church, Rev.
Father Galvin officiating. Solemn
high mass was read and the offico of
the dead recited. Father Calvin's
eulogy of the dead was most nppropii
ate and practical. He drew a lesson of
life and showed how beautiful it was to
die a Christian, end with the fortitude
that encouraged Miss Kennedy on that
journey which to many is so dreadful.
A beautiful white casket covered with
many flowers, the remembrances of
devoted friends, contained the frail
body of the deceased. The Brother
hood of Railway Conductors acted as
an escort to the cemetery, where the
remains were laid to-rcst.
The Burlington's seed corn and soil
culture special train, which has been
touring the eastern part of the state,
in tho interest of education will also
visit Alliance when the usual lecture
on the planting and care of corn and
tilling of soil will be discussed by pro
fessors of the university of Nebraska
who have been giving the matters
years of study. It may seem strange
to some that this special should be
brought into what is cons'dered an
exclusive range country, but the exten
sive raising of- corn in this section dur
ing the past few years have convinced
the Burlington company and others
that Box Butte county can raise corn
as well as any other section ot the state
when the seasons are favorable. This
lecture will be free to all and every
farmer and ranchman is asked to call
and gain the valuable information to
bo derived from thiB source. The
special train, which is under the super
vision of W. II. Manss, industrial
agent for the Burlington, will nrtive at
Alliance March 24, at 6:30 in tho
evening, remaining here that night.
