The Union Pacific railroad company
has obtained a transcript from the su
preme court of Nebraska and will car
ry the- Huxoll damage case to the su
premo court of the United States. Fred
J. Huxoll, of thlB city, nn engineer on
the Union Pacific, was run over and
killed In the Sidney yards by a Hwltch
engine on the first of January, 1912.
Steam from engines obscured the ap-
proachlng switch engine and he was
struck while crossing the tracks on
his way to the round house.
Suit for $50,000 was Instituted by
the widow and n Judgment of $20,000
. secured in thcdlstrlct court. The rail
road company carried the case to the
supreme court, which tribunal about
a month ago affirmed the lower court.
The case now goes to the United States
supremo court, and It Is probable that
a yonr or more will Slapse before a
decision Is rendered.

v Naming a Town.
An Interesting story Is told as to ,tho
origin of the name "Moosejaw" as ap
plied to a town in Canada. Some fifty
years ago, so the story runs, a pioneer,
with his tonui of oxen and "prairie
schooner,'' passing along tho banks of
tho river, wus obliged .to camp at this
point In Saskatchewan on account of
an accident to his cart.
A spoko had fallen out during tho
day, and the wheel wns falling apart
Ho looked about for something to in
Bert lor a temporary brnco for the
wheel, while his wife busied herself
with tho evening meal.
Tho pioneer's child, whllo romping
around, found tho Jawbone of a moose,
which sho lidld up to her father, who
by this time almost despaired of find
ing anything with which to repair his
cart. Ho was delighted to find that
tho Jawbono exnetly fitted tho place of
tho missing spoke. 'Tho Indians there
after named this district the "Plneo
Where tho Whlto Man Found tho
Moosejaw." This, It Is said, accounts
for tho town's queer name. Washing
