in the early days while driving hom<
from Atkinson, the old time settler:
used to be fooled by taking those illu
minated bubbles to be a light in som<
sod shanty, but when they drove to
ward them, light would disappear
This mysterious wonder could usually
be found in boggy places, as thii
country is all cut up now with high
ways and ditches, the bubbles of ligh
have disappeared along with the In
dians and buffalos.

AND STILL FORE RUMORS
MAKE THEIR APPEARANCE
(Norfolk News, Dec. 24.)
Every time that there have been
rumors of a bridge across the Missouri
river at Yankton, rumors of more rail
roads for northeast Nebraska have
followed in their wake. Some times
’he rumors went together that the
ailroad and bridge would be con
structed at the same time, and there
have been various attempts to-bridge
the Big Muddy and construct a rail
road from Yankton to Norfolk. Now
that the actual work of constructing a
bridge over the river has started, these
rumors are again flying thick and fast.
However, as long as men continue to
dream, here is a possibiliy that some
of these dreams may some day come
In connection with the building tof
the bridge at Yankton, there have al
ready of late4&en several railroad ru
mors that have preceded the Mexieo
Winnipeg dream. One of these is that
the Great Northern will build a line to
connect with the C. St. P. M. & O. at
Crofton and another that the G. N.
will build a line to Norfolk, but the one
in which there seems to be the most
faith is that the G. N. will build a line
to Plainview to connect with the Bur
lington and that the Burlington will
extend its line from O’Neill to connect
with the main line, probably at Thed
ford, making a direct route from Den
ver to the Twin Cities.
Officers of the Tri-County Improve
ment association, an organization of
northwestern Nebraska boosters, have
j announced that they have been assured
by officers of the two railroads that if
these two roads are put in the same
group in the proposed consolidation of
railroads that there will be no ques
tion about these extensions being
made. However, the latest rumor in
this connection is that the Great Nor
thern, if it extends its line, will con
nect with the Burlington at Osmond
instead of Plainview. Supporters of
this belief point to the erection of a
new round house by the Burlington at
Osmond as presaging some new de
velopment and point to the fact that
Osmond is already a freight division
on the Burlington and that it is the
half-way point between Sioux City and
