ger. Train robbers have had things pretty
much their own way of late. On
Thursday night two daring bandits
held up a Southern Pacific train and
looted the express car, their booty
amounting to sime $50,000 in gold.
Another gang stopped a train down in
Virginia and carted off about the same
sum. Truly the express companies are

In the. state leairne foot-ball games
played on Saturday Omaha downed
Nebraska City by a score of 36 to 0,
while Ah'and was victorious over
Lincoln by a score of J to 0. The
latter (t ime is said to have been one of
the hardest fought of any ever played
in Nebraska. Ashland has previously
had such a walk-away in all of its
games that th Lincoln boys are
worthy of considerable credit for
their good showing.
The officials of the national treasury
are considering the question of ex
changing at par for gold the $1,700,000
in Columbian half dollars now in the
treasury or sub-treasuries. These half
dollars were held by the Columbian ex
position at $1.00 each, and at the close
of the fair about $1,700,000 remained
undisposed of and were redeemed by
the government at their face value.
What action will be taken, if any, has
not yet been fully determined, but it
seems to be very likely that an offer to
take the exchange will be made soon.
Catherine lledlund was born in
Sweden Aug. 7, 1S20, and died Oct. 11

Col. Berry, the well-known ticket
puncher on the U. & M., denies stren
uously the statement that he will ref
eree the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight.
He &ays that the rules would compel
him to enter the prize ring dressed in
tights, and such a proposition he could
not entertain. It may be added, how
ever, that the colonel has leased a
tract of land at Pacific Junction for
the purpose of propagating frog legs.
He has long been impressed with the
notion that it is possible to grow frog
legs without going through the usual
formality of raising the whole frog,
and he proposes to give his plan a fair
The following from the Papillion
Times goes to prove the utter ineffi
ciency of the state crop statistician:
recent state crop report says that
only 10.000 bushels of wheat were
grown in Sarpy county this year.
John R. McCarty furnishes positive
proof of the unreliable nature of state
crop reports. During the past season
Mr. McCarty has threshed with his
machine 9,265 bushels of wheat and
23,S31 bushels of oats and barley.
There are a dozen other threshing ma
chines in the county, and if each has
done as well as John's machine, then
it proves the state statistician is a
New Train Service Delmyrd.
The new train service that was billed
to begin between this city and Hillings,
Mont., next Sunday has again been
cancelled, and it is not known now
when the new time card will go into
effect. The cause of the delay is the
inability of the receivers of the North
ern i'aciuc to inaugurate the new
traffic arrangement with the Hurling-
ton before their action has received
the sanction of the court. The folks
all along the line are anxious to have
the new flyers put on and they will be
considerably vexed over the postpone
ment. It is hoped to receive a satisfac
tory ruling from th- court in a few
davs. Lincoln Journal.

County Commissioner Dutton is as
silent as an oyster in regasd to the re
cent lettinc of the county coal con
tract to a bidder whose figures lacked
considerable of being the lowest. Mr.
Dutton is usually full of excuses for
his numerous official misdeeds, but
this time he doubtless realizes that
his act cannot admit of any excuse
and is consequently very silent. Dut
ton's defeat is a certainty. The tax
payers want a man who will guard
their interests and not one who
manipulates county affairs in such a
manner as to be eternally looking for
a chance to even up on some personal
Lawyer Allen Reeson was skirmish
ing about this morning in search of his
pet driving horse. His son, Charles,
rode the horse down town last evening
and hitched it to a post at the north
west corner of the Fitzgerald building.
When h returned for the horse at
about eleven o'clock the animal was
missiir. The Grst supposition was
that the horse had been stolen, but
the officers loc ited it this morning up
at the home of ("has. Miller, near the
water works stand pip, where it had
strayed during the night. Some prac
tical joker evidently untied the horse
last night and let it run loose.
