In comparing the speed made on
the New York Central with that of
Union Pacific, and noting the many
advantages possessed by the former
road, the Bee of a recent- date says:
4,In spite of these many and time
killing disadvantages the Union Pa
cific has made some records of its
own, and its daily operation of the
road gives evidences of speed that
almost equal that of the Central's
record made under the most favora
ble auspices, with all appliances
and means to boot. Two years ago
the Union Pacific had occasion to
hustle a passenger train over the
road from Cheyenne to Council
Bluffs. The distance is 520 miles,
and the run was made - with a full
passenger train of eight coaches, in
580 minutes, including the stops for
water, coal, three division changes
of engines and crews, and the busi
ness that had to be cared for at the
big stations. Union Pacific train
JNo. i trequently makes tne run
from Grand Island tp Council Bluffs
a distance pf 156 miles in 160
minutes, including five stops for
crossings, and business at junction
points. The California Knijrhts
Templar were brought from Ogden
to Council Bluffs, a distance of 1,030
miles, m twenty-nine hours, and-
fruit trains of thirty loaded freight
cars nave been pulled over that dis-

tance in thirty-two hours so many
times that the railroad men have
stopped looking upon the achieve
ment as anything unusual. The
run of 745 miles from Kansas City
to Cheyenne is made in twenty-one
hours, .with fifty-stops-todo'th&bus-
iness of the company. From Chey
enne to Sidney is a strip of track
that affords an excellent chance for
for speeding, and the Union Pacific
enginers take advantage of it daily.
The distance is 103 miles, and it is
covered every day nearly at a mile a
minute clip. Onty last Friday night
the distance was covered in 120 min

cars, and five stops were made on
Quite an accidental coincidence
occurred in this vicinity yesterday
afternoon. John Bartemas, living
southwest, came to town after Dr.
Lawrence to come and set his little
girl's left arm, which was broken
just above the wrist, by her being
thrown from a pony. As the Dr.
was on his road, he was overtaken
by Jimmy Shinkle who had also bro
ken his arm in nearly the same
place as the little girl, by falling
from Pete Williams' pony. The Dr.
took Jimmy into his buggy and pro
ceeded to Mr. Bartemas place where
he set both arms. Both ot the ua-
fortunates are getting along nicely.
