Thousands of Tons Used
Monthly West of Mis
souri River.
The Burlington west of the Missouri
uses from 130,000 to 1 JO, 000 tons of coal
a month. This means that from 1,500,
000 to 1,080,000 tons are used a year.
Coal is from 75 cents to 80 cents higher
a ton now than it was last year and it
j will cost the railroad many thousand
more dollars to operate because of the
advance in the market price, says the
Lincoln News. I
The Burlington gets it supply from
the mines at Sheridan, Wyo., and from
its Iowa mines. Each week the sup
erintendent of a division estimates how
much he will require for seven days
and this is spipped out from the mines.
The three big centers for the distri
bution of fuel are Lincoln, Sheridan
and Denver. Over a hundred cars are
often on hand at Lincoln and in the
cold season when the demand for coal
is the grestest thousands of tons are
unloaded on the ground.
While the bulk of the coal is used for
making steam which turns the wheels
of monster locomotives, yet a consider
able amount is called for to keep office
buildings, stations and work shops
comfortable in the coal season. The
larger locomotives row carry moderate
sized coal yards with them on their
trips over the road. Some engine ten
ders will hold as high as fifteen tons of
fuel. This shot into the tenders by
means of chutes which allow the coal
to drop down f rem above and the job is
completed in a few minutes. A pull at
a trap door and the coal tumbles out of
the chute with a roar, the fireman
meanwhile spreading it evenly and top
ping it off from his position below.
' Coal cars have increased in size so
tremendously in the last ten years that
it does not take one half of the rolling
stock to handle the railroad and com
mercial traffic that it once did. Coal
cars used to be mere boxes compared
with the giants of this period, running
in capacity from 28,000 to 40,000 lbs.
Now carloads of 80,000 and 100,000
capacity are common and the minimum
is 60,000 lbs.
Entertain Friends At Dinner.
In honor of Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas
Simons and daughter, Mary, of Chi
cago, who are visiting in the city the
guests of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Thrall,
Mr. and Mrs. Lindeman entertained at
a six o'clock dinner last evening, Mr.
and Mrs. Thrall and their guests from
the east. There was music, an im
promptu program furnished by the
hostess and guests, among which, Miss
May Daugherty, grandchild of Mr. and
Mrs. Lindeman, took no small part.
Miss May is a real actor and imper
sonator, having an ability far beyond
that of the ordinary person of her age.
She made the hours fly merrily after
the dinner, by her witty and humerous
recitations and readings, as well as at
the piano. The dinner was a three course
affair, and added greatly to the enjoy
ment of the evening, that will surely
be a green spot in the memory of the
guests from the the east. They will
carry away with them pleasant memor
ies of their visit to this city.

Sidney Miner Improving
