An elegant rain of nearly an inch
visited Loup City Monday, commenc
ing a short ways west of the city, at
noon and continued a gentle falling
the better part of the afternoon, and
Monday night giving a downpour in
addition that was a souser. The noon
rain on Monday washed about uhree
quarters of a mile of tracs out just
east ot Schaupps, compelling the east
bound freight on the B. &. M to re
turn to this city and delaying the
passenger till a late hour before the
track could be gotten into condition

As per announcement in North
western columns, last week, the post
office was moved into its new quar
ters west of the public square in the
building especially built for its ac
comodation by the Cement Block Co.,
owned and operated by Messrs.
Zimmerman and Stout. The moving
of tiie postoffice occured late on Sat
urday afternoon and placed in full
position that night under the full
glare of electric lights furnished
ahead of time by the electric light
company, as promised a few days
earlier. A slight hitch in getting the
wires stretched by the company,
caused by the strike of linemen the
latter part of the week was overcome
in time to put in temporary lights
direct from the power house. The
scene was very pretty and gave evi
dence of-what electric lighting will
do toward beautifying our city after
the shades of night come jipon us.
