NEWS OF THE RAILROADS
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
Recognized by the Burlington.
Tbe management of the ISurlinpton
railroad, alter twenty yea is of op
position, has recognized the brother
hood of locomotive engineers and has
signed the first wage schedule of t lie
organization since the strike or lvv.
Heretofore all wage schedules for the
engineers of the Hurlington have been
promulgated over the signatures of
the railroad managers, the brother
hood having no option in the matter
of acceptance. This time the schedule
was signed by the ofllcers and by the
members of the general committee of
the brotherhood after a three weeks'
conference. The hostility of the
Hurlington road to the brotherhood
was the result of the engineers' strike
in lSS, when 1,400 men deserted their
engines. ran I Morton, then in the
Hurlington s service, had charge of
the strike for the railroad, and won
the most stubborn fight in the history
of the brotherhood. Several months
ago word was sent forth that the engi
neers employed by the Hurlington
could openly join the brotherhood if
they so desired. Since that time
fully TO per cent of them have become
members of the organization.
A Hurlington man savs that the car
shortage is not a serious matter now,
although a few more cars could be
used. farmers are now ery busy
with corn husking and wheat is not
being brought to market so rapidly as
it was several weeks ago. lie doen't
look for the shortage to grow more
serious soon. ''He are furnishing
many cars now, and grainotTerings are
being taken otT the dealers' hands
fairly well," he siys. Xew corn has
not started to move and probably will
not for some time to come.

An Old Policy.
Probably one of the oldest life insur
ance policies in this vicinity is the one
held by the late (leorye W. (Irimes.
The policy was issued August IT. 10.
by the Northwestern Mutual, of Mil
waukee. Wis., for the sum or 1.000,
the wife, Nancy M. (Irimes, being the
beneficiary. Mr. Grimes had always
taken care that this policy was kept
in force from the date it was issued.
Are Full Brothers.
According to an exchange, the man
who went out to milk and sat down on
a boulder in the middle of the pasture
and waited for the cow to back up,
was a full brother to the man who
kept the store and would not advertise
because he reasoned that the purchas
ing public would "back up" to his
place of business when it wanted something.
True to the Letter.
Doc. Tanner of the South Omaha
Democrat very truthfully remarks:
"Every town has a covey of sad eyed
loafers who live in a narrow sphere.
j They are usually men without child
ren anil who cause their own wife, if
if they have one, to eke out an exis
tance that in comparison would be a
hot corner of hell alongside or a slave
in a Turkish harem. They knock
everything and everybody. Never
having given employment to a living
soul, with never the worry of digging
a pay roll on Saturday night, absolutely
foreign to the thrill of joy in purchas
ing a half dozen pair of shoes for as
many legitimate offsprings, ignorant
in the extreme of the meaning of the
word charity, they are naturally made
of the same brand of material that
mummies are made from. The only
word in the English language that
rolls from their tongue without an
effort is graft. Every man who earns
a dollar is a grafter. Vet in the full
meaning of the word these vultures of
the community are grafters of the
rottenest ilk. They feed on thespend
ings of the busy man and lap up the
sum that was intended for dogs and
swine. I heir home life is miserable
and cheerless. Nature naturally dries
up their carcass and in time they
whither mentally, socially and physi
cally until they are neither company
for man or beast. Cheer up you de
formed, depraved skeletons of hell
and let the sunshine of the Almighty
penetrate your being. Life is short
at best. If you can go no further try
at least to make one soul happy. Don't
cheat yourself out of all the good
things the Lord has set before you.
Let your finish beat least of such a
character that even the worms will
not refuse to fatten on your remains

The weather prophets are again
making their guesses as to what kind
of weather will be experienced during
the coming winter. They say that in
as much as the corn husks are light,
and as the muskrats are building light
houses, as the weather was fine when
the sun crossed the line, as the goose
bone is about all right, and inasmuch
as several other signs are favorale
they prognosticate that the winter
will be mild and delightful, and that
the climate will be more like Cali
fornia and florida than like the
winters experienced in the north for
the past few years.
