Col. Dave Wallengren and "Din
key" Came Quickly to Rescue
There was a series of sensations
at the depot yesterday afternoon
when three separate and distinct
fires took place. The entire depot
force and the yardmen were kept
busy for a few minutes, in subduing
the flames which threatened to sweep
away all that section of the city. The
first fire started in the board fence
north of the station. Some brush and
dead grass was being burned by part
ies living on the hill north of the
depot and the fire got away and
caught the high board fence an din a
few minutes that structure was In
the grasp of the flames. An alarm
was Immediately given and Agent
Pickett, Telegrapher Clement and the
entire office and yard force rushed
out and subdued the raging flames
without any material loss.
The second fire took place when
a car of cinders standing In the yards
was found to be on fire. The flames
had spread to the frame work of the
car and H was burning fiercely when
noticed. An alarm was Immediately
telephoned to the shops and Col. Dave
Wallengren with the "dinky ' was
hurried down to the yards and the
tar was started for the Bhops where
the fire was extinguished.
The third car was caused by the
frantic efforts to save the cinder
car. The "dinky" In hauling the car
to the shops went tearing down the
track scattering cinders In Its wake
and some of them Ignited the switch
shanty, north of the station. George
Dwyer, employed In the Burlington
office, discovered the raging flames
and turned In another alarm to the
office. Again Agent I'lckett, , Tele
grapher Clement and the office and
yard force dashed out and with the
aid of a few buckets of water put out
the devouring element. In this case
also there was no loss to anything
save the nervs of Messrs. Pickett and
Clement, both of whom vow that Col
Wallengren Is altogether too ambir
tlous when it comes to putting out
fires. They claim he worked the
"dinky" overtime in an effort to save
company property and In the future
they would prefer to see the fire rage
rather than destroy their nerves
Col. Dave says he hasn't time to look
around when he Is sent on a fire mis
sion. The whole affair was a very
funny one.
Fithcf M. Shine Talks to the Younj
Men's Bible Class.
The members of the Young Men's
Bible Class of the Methodist church
last evening were entertained by Rev.
Father Shine with a discourse upon
"Man and Ills Education." Rev.
Shine was at his best and delivered a
brilliant and eloquent address upon
what constitutes a man and also
what are the component parts of his
education. Those who were fortu
nate enough to attend the lecturo
wore moro than well pleased and It
was considered one of the finest ad
dresses ever delivered in the city.
Taking up first the topic of what
constitutes a man, Father Shine pro
ceeded to dwell upon the three ele
ments which enter Into the human.
First, ho spoke of the physical make
up of the innn. Following this he
touched upon the Intellectual devel
opment and then the sprltual. In
each of these three grand divisions
of man he found much which was
worth speaking of. He gloried In the
magnificent development of man
along physical lines. Ills splendid
animal characteristics were especially
subject of comment by Father Shine.
Taking up the development of Man's
Intellectuality, Father Shine spoke
of the highly Important essentials of
a good education and dwelt quite ex
tensively on the absolute necessity for
man attaining a good education In
every line. In this particular he
spoke of the small benefit a man
derived from mere book lenrnlng
and cited the fact that a man must
have a general knowledge of things
outside of the books. Touching up
on the splrltunl education of the true
man, he declared that a man was
wholly a man who had the animal
characteristics and the education If
he lacked the spiritual development.
Speaking of the soul. Father Shine
was particularly effective and his
description of what the soul was
Is considered by all who heard it as
a masterly analysis.
The whole speech was, In fact, a
splendidand brilliant one and It is
to be regretted that the attendance
was not far larger than It was. One
of the things that Impressed his
hearers particularly , was Father
Shine's defense of the Roman Cath
ollc church on the question of the
public schools. He advanced the Idea
that the church did not oppose the
public schools as many generally sup
posed but It did advocate the preach
Ing of religion and the bible In the
schools. This was a diversion from
the general text of his address and it
was a significant one. Considering
that he was addressing the members
of a church opposed to his In many
beliefs, and it was especially startling
but it certainly Impressed his many
hearers. Tnken nroifcho it the ad
dress was one well wor'hy of atten
Hon and the members of the class are
Justly pleased that so able and bril
llnnt a speaker Is at hand to dls
course for their benefit. The several
numbers the class has had have been
such that they are quite enthusiastic
over them and those which will be
secured In the future can be relied
upon to be up to the high stand
ard set by the past.

dust storms which has prevaded

the dust was so heavy and thick that
the lights on the big car could hardly
show the road. However the party
succeeded In getting back without accident.

Wm. Puis, sr., the vctran farmer
from Maple Grove was In the city to-
nnt day attending to business and In-

but he does not show any symptoms

In a late Issue of th Farm Journal
appears the paragraph below quoted:
"It seems lncreditable that. there
are millions of sane men and women
who had rather live a cramped and
often squalid and half-starved life
than to live a wholesome and, ample
existence on a few acres of their own
in the country." ,
"Massachusetts figures thatjBtone
roads ran be kept in good repair for
$60 per mile per year. These Yan
kees always seem to have more horse
sense than most other folks."
The number of people who would
not endorse the statement In the first
paragraph Is so small as to be negli
gible and the natural Impulse of the
man who reacts it Is to look around
for an opportunity to acquire the
necessary land. There are few who
cannot do this. If you doubt this,
see J. E. narwlck In the Dovey block
and he can convince you.
The second paragraph fits a lo
cal condition to a nicety. There Is a
stretch of country on the Missouri
river bank between the C. I). & Q
bridge and Rock Bluffs that Is admir
ably adapted to raising all kind of
fruit trees and garden truck. The
chief object In the way of the devel
opment of this tract Is Its Inaccessi
bility. For the people of Platsmouth
to derive the benefits of this most
natural tributary territory they must
aid In procuring the read to tan It
and It seems to be calling upon them
to do so for there Is most excellent
road material underlying It In the
shore of a llr-'e Hencslt ""ally worked.
If t''j money spent In ferules and pon-
trcn brllgfs to attract to the city
Jrvn trade hud been ex
pended In good roads around
and adjacent to the city we should by
this time have been reaping some of
the benefits. ..... -
