Th.e travelers between this city
and Omaha as well as more distant

out the necessity of arising at the
early hour when the morning train
departs northward. No. 2? which is
due out of this city at 1:"S p. in. is
restored to the schedule and will
care for those de-iring to go to Om

Omaha due here at 0 p. in. will also
be run and while many have cursed

combination train, still it is very
convenient to the traveler from our
little city who does not care to bask
ia the brist lights of the metropo
