rising generation of our laud read.
Our time is so short anil precious
that we can not afford to waste the
fragments in reading trashy litera
ture. The mind is weakened and
the brain becomes stillled. To con
verse with the jood arid RTcat we
must read their writings and hold
intercourse with them. To converse
with anyone for tive minutes we can
easily tell what literature the3' in
dulge in. To talk with the learned
and wise is a pleasure, but to talk to
an ignorant person is a displeasure.
Ixt us impress on the minds of the
risinr generation the necessity of
reading choice literature.

has been appropriated for the mi

fort which is situated just six miles
north of this citv. All of Fori. Oma

which will be lilted out as one of
the largest and best military head

gressman Council, after a talk with
the officials at Washington, says
work will be beiun in x-arnest on
the new buildings as soon as the
weather will permit, and that heha.
reason to believe 'J.t H ).( will be
expended n the new fort. He say s
tluit the plans beins; carried out for
the w'ork which i ei: ins ;:t once are
on the basis of a million dollar ap

will be linallv ijiveii.
The building of this new military
camp so near us where ko maiiy

ami the expenditure of half a mill

summer means much for Platts
niouth. We will have a bridge
across the Platte river and hund
reds of mechanics will find employ

lies in the fact that our city will fur

of supply for this larje body of

The Burlington Cutting.
A telegram from Chicago says it
is expected by the Burlington man
agement that the reduction of em
ployes now being made will reduce
the pay roll of the eight lines form
ing the Burlington syndicate to
about $150,000 a month. An inside
authority estimates that the road's
February statement will be fully as
bad as the January- one. In its pol
icy of retrenchment the Burlington
is striking even the higher grade of
employes. J. Simpson, Canadian
passenger agent, with headquarters
at Toronto, and S. B. Sanford, who
had charge of the Michigan busi
ness at Detroit, have been removed
and their work added to other mem
bers of the Burlington outside staff.

but that he is positive from a per
