The movement of cars though the
local yards for the first eighteen days
of this month exceeded in number any
similar period in the history of the
road. Owing to the increased tonnage
per train, the number of irains were
somewhat less but tro number of cars
has never before been equaled, not
even in 1907, when all previous records
were badly smashed.
According to the heads of the veter
inary department of the Kansas agri
cultural college $6,000,000 will not cover
the loss in western Kansas alone by the
horse plague. These experts estimate
that over 20,000 horses have already
died in the western counties of Kansas
from the disease and the plaguo is still
spreading at an alarming rate evon
into other states. It is figured that not
less than 110,000 or 120.000 horses have
died in Kansas and Nebraska, making
the total financial loss to the farmers
of the two states not far from $10,000,
000 to $12,000,000.
Death of J. S. Clinton.
J. S. Clinton died at the home of his
s)fi Charles Clinton, at 4 o'clock this
morning after a short illness.
For a number of years Mr. Clintori
had been suffering with stomach trou
blo and ailments customary to advanced
years, but his condition was not con
sidered serious until Saturday evening.
Shortly after retiring his condition
became more serious nnd from that
time he grew gradually weaker and
and for several days no hope
for his recovery was held out by the
attending physician. Early this morn
ing he fell into a deep sleep during
which he peacefully passed away.
Mr. Clinton camo here in 1886 and
was one of the most respected citizens
of the city, and during his residence
always took nn active part in the
betterment of local conditions. For a
number of years he lived on his ranch
near the city, and later was employed
in the local shops. For five years his
health had been such that he was un
able to engage in active employment
and he divided his time with his sons
in different cities, hoping to be bene
fitted by the change of climate. N
Mr. Clinton was eighty years of agp.
He was born at New Haven, Conn.,
and after his marriage moved to Grand
Rapids, Mich., and later about ten
years ago, he became a resident of Den
ver until the death of his wife when
he returned to this city to make it his
To mourn him are left two sons,

Robert Cary Passes Away.
North Platte people were shocked
last night to learn of the death of
Robort Cary, which occurred at Mis
soula, Mont., yesterday morning. Death
was duo to kidney trouble, which devel
oped about a year ago, nnd though
treatment was taken from specialists
during tho summer, not much hope was
held out for ultimate recovery, though
the end was not so soon expected.
Robert, who had been physical in
structor of tho university of Montana,
was up to a year or so ago an athlete,
a robust spocimen of manhood, and
while at Yale college had gained prom
inence ns a track runner. Following
his graduation he went to the northwest
and later accepted the positionat tho
Montana university. When ho came
home to spend the summer vacation his
kidneys were badly troubling him nnd
ho went east for treatment. Tempor
ary relief was given him and a couple
of weeks ago he returned to Missoula.
Wednesday Mr. Cary received a letter
that hi3 son was in bad shape and ho
was advised to start for Missoula,which
he and Mrs. Cary did, but they only
had reached Alliance when word of his
death was received.
The remains will be taken to Webster
Grovo, Mo., for interment.

ticket on tho official ballot and will
