RAILROAD NOTES AND PERSONALS
Big Fruit Tariffic. j
Up to last evening 30G fruit trai shnd
passed through the North Platte yards ',
this season, nn increase of seventy-five i
trains over the same period last year.
In tailroad parlance a "fruit train"
means a train that has not less than
fifteen cars of fruit, nnd running from
that number to sixty and seventy.
During the past two weeks there has
been an daily average of 150 fruit cars
iced at the local plant.
U. P. Wants More Land.
W. S. Uolson who owns twenty
acres just east of the ol J fair grounds,
has been asked by the Union Pacific to
place a price on the snme. It. has been
intimated that the company desires
this tract on which to build the pro
prosed new round house. Tho tract is
situated near the center of the new
west end yards, and if the round-house
wns built there it woufd save ter
minal time of engineers nnd firemen.
The company. also desires a small tract
in same vicinity owned by Mr. Richards,
nnd tfig U. I agent went fropi hero to
Syracuse," Neb., to confer with Mr
Ricl0-ds. It is highly probable that
tho company will purchase both tracts.
A gang of thirty or forty men are

Two Hutchinson specials,

Yellowstone Park, and other
points, passed through Sunday.
John II. Day, who had been working
in the Burlington shops at Alliance and
came home on a visit, has concluded
not to return. Absence from his family
proved neither pleasant nor profitable.
Since the consolidation of train No.
19 with train No. 9 it frequently be
comes necessary to use two engines
out of this terminal. Ten and twelve
cars of express stuff and mail matter
s not unusual on this train.
To the credit of the engine and train
men and the management it can be said
that during tho pa3t four years there
has been but a single nccident on the
Union Pacific resulting in the death of
a passenger. This information comes
from the. passenger department nnd is
Edward Blankenburg Passes Away.
Edwnrd Blankenburg, a pioneer busi
ness man of North Platte passed to the
beyond at one o'clock last night, tho soul
taking its flight whilo he slumbered. The
deceased had been suffering from a com
plication of troubles principally those
emenating from the kidneys for sev
eral weeks, and while his condition was
sucn as no cause tne lamiiy mucn con
cern, death was unexpected. Up to
Sunday evening lie moved nbout the
house, but yesterday morning ho did
not arise. At midnight there wero no
alarming symptoms and the family re
tired; an hour later when Mrs. Blank
enburg went to the bed side she found
tho earthly career of her companion for
nearly fifty years had ended.
Funeral arrangements at this writing
have not been fully completed, but the
services wi)l probably be held at tho
residence Thursday afternoon.
Edward Blankenburg was born in
Greitz, Germany, in 1843. He came to
this country when a young mnn of
twenty-five and located in New Roch
elle, N. Y. In 1873 he came to North
Platte, and in the same year was mar
ried to Miss Minnie Schmidt, who .also
came from New Rochelle. The cere
mony was performed by Rev. Putnam
in the former Unitarian hall.
Upon reaching North Platte Mr
iilankenburg opened a Harness and re
pair shop in the lean to attached to
the McDonald frame building on west
Front, nnd later moved to a then log
building now occupied by Chris. Brod
bock. A few years later ho erected
the building now occupied by Gus
Huffman, later moving to the property
in which he died. Two or three years
ago Mr. Blankenburg retired from
active business pursuits, having by
industry and frugality enrned a com
Though retiring in disposition, Mr.
Blankenburg'took that interest in
civic affairs! that all good citizens
should take; his life throughout was a
most honorable one, and acquaintances
in town 'nnd county learn of his death
