DAMAGE DONE BY WIND
On Monday night about 10:00
the wind came up and gave some of
our folks a real scare.
The cloud3 looked threatening and
following a day of intense heat,
made folks fear a hard storm.
West of town some damage was
done. The roof was taken off of a
corn crib on the E. F. Marshall farm
near Wabash. On the H. P. Christen
sen place now owned by Frank J.
Davis, the roof was blown off of a
hog barn and the building wrecked
to some extent, and Dr. Guy Lake
had his hog house blown down.
The strong wind Monday night
made a lot of trouble for the tele
phone men as lines all over were
crossed and made bad much work for
them. Weeping Water Republican.

TO TRY OUT NEW
Will Operate Trains on Its Central
Branch on Trial Schedule for
60 Days to See If It Pays.
The dispute that has been ou for
the past few weeks between the res
idents of the central portion of Ca
county and the Missouri Pacific rail
way over the proposal to take off
the passenger train that plies be
tween Auburn and Omaha and re-'
turn each day, has been compromised I
by the railroad company agreeing to
retain the train service on a revised
schedule and leaving it up to the
residents of the territojat to show
their appreciation by patronizing
The new schedule goes into effect
on June 19th will allow the resi
dents of Avoca, Weeping Water,
Manley and Louisville, a stay of five
hours in Omaha before leaving on
the afternoon train and Is in line
with the request of the residents of
that locality. At the hearing before
the state railway commission, the
Protestants stated that the reason
for lack of patronage of the train
was the short stay allowed in Omaha.
The railroad company claimed a
loss of revenue on the train of $40.
000 due to the patronage given the
auto busses from the towns along
the line of the Central branch and
offered this as their reason for de-
Iring to cut off the train service.
The company has agreed to give
the new schedule a sixty day try-out
and if at the close of that time they
find that it Is not paying they will
renew their request to change the
train and substitute a mixed freight
and passenger train on the run from
Auburn to Omaha.

WILL LEAVE HOTEL
It has been the rumor for some
time that Fred Wagner, the propri
etor of the Hotel Wagner, would
cease his connection with the hotel
and investigation has disclosed the
fact that this is true as Mr. Wagner
has the opportunity of securing a
new location in Omaha which he
may decide to accept and whicli
would give- him a greater opportun
ity than the hotel here. He expects
to leave the Wagner about October
It is to be regretted that Mr. War
ner is expecting to leave the hotel
and the city, as he has made a most
efficient manager of the hotel and
has given the city one of the best
conducted stopping places that they
have enjoyed and a hotel that was
a real credit to the city and its peo
ple. He has in the past few months
received a number of offers from var

state as to assuming the manage

mind as to the acceptance.
