IS REDUCED BY
BURLINGTON MAKES REDUCTION
IN WORKING FORCE HERE
AT THE SHOPS.
The decision of the Burlington
management to reduce the working
force over the lines west of the Mis
souri river and which affected all
lines of the operating force, has been
felt to some extent in this city
where the reduction in the working
force of the shops was made on a ten
per cent baeis for the winter months.
As far as Mas possible Superin
tendent iSahd has distributed the
reduction over the shops so as to
cause as little disturbance of the
output of the shop an possible, but
of a necessity some departments suf
fered more than others in the fact
that all unnecessary work that can
possibly be put over until the spring
season has been checked by the or
ders of the high officials and to place
the operating expenses of the road on
? low a basis as possible consist
ent with maintaining the high
standard of the Burlington.
On the rolls her 525 men have
been carried and the number reduced
has been 51. which makes the ten per
cent cut as was estimated would be
necessary. Under the agreements of
the unions and the railroads the re
ductions have followed the seniority
rule as far as possible in making the
changes in the force.
While the reduction will be felt to
pome extent over the city it is much
less than was first thought Mould
be necessary and it is hoped that in
the ensuing months the cond.tions
can adjust themselves so that the
forces of the shops over the system
may be bark at the normal rating as
far as the number of employes are
The other shops of the system have
suffered the same rate of reduction
and at Havelock and Lincoln the
working force has been sliced some
SAYS NIX ON THE
LOVE LORN MUSH
Janitor of Government Building Dis
covers Cupid is Active -There
During the Day.
To gaze on the placid faces of the
employes of the government building
and especially on that of the janitor,
Anton Hasson. one would not im
agine them to be hard hearted per
sons, but the ukasa has gone forth
from the government buildii.g that
the postoffice as a rendezvous for
the love lorn must cease, as well as
the practice of writing messages and
leaving them lying around over the
lobby, exposing to the public gaze of
the rude and disinterested public the
bleeding or otherwise lacerated hearts
of the young people who have been
stung by cupid's darts.
Mr. Ilasson a few days since call
ed the attention of the reporter to
the condition of the writing desks
in the postoffice lobby and from the
looks of the exhibit submitted by the
janitor there is surely something
stirring with the young people and
romances are being turned out at
the postoffice tryst iug place faster
than "tin lizzies" at the Ford fac
tory. As a friend of the love lorn,
we would advise them to put their
burning love messages on paper and
send them through the regular chan
nels, and not have the whole city in
on their little romances.
It would look much better.

services of Miss Sarah Baker were
held at 2:20 from the home of her
sister. Mrs. C. H. I'armele on Vine

parted lady. The services were con
ducted by Rev. H. G. McOlusky, or
the First Presbyterian church of
which the deceased had long been a
faithful and devout member. The text
of Rev. McClusky was that of Psalms
73:26 "My flh and my heart fail
eth, but God is the strengthener of
my heart and my portion forever."
The minister also read the lines of
one of the old familiar hymns whose
message of love and hope brought to
the bereaved family and old friends
the sense of resignation in the loss
that has been their part to bear.
The body was laid to rest in the
family lot in Oak Hill cemetery. The
services were attended by a number
of the old friends from out of the city
to pay their tribute to the memory
