Telephone Poles Become
Mixed Up With Nearly
SCATTERED ALONG TRACK
Switches Broken and Other
Damage Done Though not of
No 77 freight which is due through
Plattsmouth about 1 A.M. went
through this morning rather late.
A car load of telephone poles, on tho
train, was dumped out in the yards by
somo hook or crook. The poles were
scattered from tho new sewer to tho
switch shanty north of the station.
The ties in the false work over the
sewer "were cut into, and tho two
switches wcro broken off and the
ground much indicated that the load
of poles had been off the track for
some rods, but jumped back on again
at the frog south of tho station.
The greater part of tho load was
left just south of the subway, some of
the poles falling into it and completely
blocking it for a time.
It is supposed tho wires which hold
tho standards together were not
securely fastened and had come loose,
allowing the ends of some of the poles
to drop down, this threw the car off
tho track and jolting along over the
rough ties, threw the entire load out.
The principal damage was the
breaking of the switches, which the
company will soon have in repair.
Accepts Good Position.
Dr. A. P. Barnes, who has been
in the restaurant business in the
Wctencamp block for sometime, has
accepted a good pos'tion with tho

matter under consideration for a year
or more, but would not make the
deal with the company until he was
sure the remedies would elfect the
cures they were intended for.
The remedies are for stock, and the
Dr. will bo privileged to travel either
with single or double rig, or by train

Cass and Otoe counties, two of the
