Proposed New Road
And again Loup City is on lie map
of a proposed new railway, this time
mapped out aV running from Yank
ton. South Dakota, across Nebraska
to the Gulf. The proposed new line
is called the Midland Continental
Railroad Company. It is already in-!
corporated in Soutii Dakota, and has
now tiled articles of incorporation in
Nebraska. The company has a capi
tal stock of #250,000 and proposes to
build a line from Boyd county on the
north line of this state to Smith Cen
ter. Kansas. The directors are Her
bert S. Duncombe, Joseph D. Small,
VV. E. Jenkins. E. J. MoHn, E. G. Mc
Gilton and Frank H. Gains, the two
latter being Omaha men, McGtiton
being formerly lieutenant governor,
while Jenkins is the Englishman who
is at ttie head of the exploited Canada
to-the-Gulf road through Kearney.
The proposed route of the company,
according to published reports, may be
either of two, according to its arti
cles, south through Boyd, Holt, eitb
W heeler or Greeley, Sherman or How
ard, Buffalo or Hall, Kearney or
Adams, Franklin or Webster, to
Smith Center, Kansas. Wonder if it
might notjbe another name for or in
connection with the Carrington-Kear
ney-Beloit-Galveston proposed line?
If sc, it looks as though Mr. Jenkins
was pulling two strings to make the
air line towns from Kearney to Car
rington sit up and get action in case
bonds were asked of these towns.
Christmas Exercises
At the Churches
At the Swedish Christian church
in excellent program was given on
Christmas Eve, a number of the
scholars deserving great credit for
singing and distinct speaking. Some
handsome booklets were given those
an attendance on the Sunday school
faithfully during the year.
At the Presbyterian church there
were speeialy prepared Christmas ser
vices last Sunday evening, the regular
Christmas program coming Tuesday
evening with a short cantata, exer
■ a eises by the school and distribution
* tion of candy to scholars, a large au
dience being present. Austin also
had a nice Christmas entertainment
^ the same evening.
The Christmas exercises by our
Methodist friends occurred in their
church last Sunday morning and
evening, a new innovation here. Sun
day morning there were special Chris
mas exercises in the way of music
and especially prepared sermon, a
large congregation present, and at
the close of Sunday school followed
distribution of treats to the children.
In the evening the Sunday school, as
sisted by the choir, gave a nice pro
gram of music, recitations, dialogues,
inarches, etc., the church filled to

Might Have
Lost an Eye
Last $a*kf&S ^Mtmuoon as Mr.
.lohn Shiner, who recently moved to
Loup City from Iowa, was passing the
Keystone Lumber Co.’s office, on his
way to his home in the northwest
part of tlie city, accompanied by his
12-yeir-old daughter, Paulina the
girl was struck in the left eye with
a piece of metal or a shot, probably
from a sling shot or air riflle, making
a puncture in the loWer lid, which had
the eye bees struck a quarter of an
inch higher must have resulted in the
loss of the sight. However, as it was,
Mr. Sinner took the little girl to the
office of the Dr. Bowman, who dressed
the eye and think no serious conse
quences will follow. As we under
stand it, there is an ordinance making
a line of $10 against anyone using an
air rifle or a “nigger shooter” (sling
shot) within the corporate limits of
the city, and If the injury was re
cMsed from either id these, it Is to
be hoped the culprit may be brought
to time. We bare noticed too many
of our small boys lately with the dead
ly little “nigger shootua.” and have
taken occasion to admonish the boys
about them, and thdfr danger, and
have been ekpectlng'ere thfct to bear
of some accident ffqm their use. It
is to be hoped 1f the. accident to the
little girl resulted from one of these,
that the boys will destroy these sense-;
less affairs so that no more accidents
may result.
Charley Wharton in
Big Fire at Lead, SJ>.
News lias been received here that
Charley Wharton was in a big fire at
Lead, S. D., on the 14th instant, bare
ly escaping with his life and losing
his trunk and all his clothes,save one
suit of every day wear. He was
working in an undertaxing establish
ment with rooming house above, and’
was just getting ready for bed, when
there was an alarm of tire in tlie
building and so quickly did the flames
spread that all had only time to get
out themselves, without chance of
saving any of their belongings. The
fire was of incendiary origin, and the
whole structure was destroyed. No
fatalities, although some injured in
jumping from upper windows.
The Loup City Mill has shipped in

price of ground corn 50c per hundred
pounds during the last few days. The

Kicked by Horse
Skull Fractured
Last wedk Tuesday evening, about
d o’clock as Martin Johnson, an old
gentleman of 72 years, living alone
with his aged wife some ten miles
north of Loup City, was attending
to his stock, he was kicked on the
right side of his head in front and
above the ear, by one of his horses,
fracturing tbs skull. His prolonged
absence at. the stable alarmed his
wife who going out to the barn found
the old gentleman lying up against
the side of the barn in an unconscious
condition. She tried to remove film,
but was unable to do so. Leaving
him, she went to the home of ber son,
and nearest neighbor, Hans Johnson,
a mile away, who telephoned for Dr.
Main and hurried back ft> the scene
of the accident. Thd husband and
father was still lyMg in an uncon
scious condition Kid was carried to
the house and the Wound washed and
.cared for the best they knew how.
Upon the arrival of Dr. Main an ex
amination resulted in finding the
skull fractured from just above the
cheek bone to an inch and a half above.
On Wednesday evening, Dr. Grothan
of St. Paul arrived and with Dr.
Main operated on the wound,'remov
ing the portion of injured bone.
Since the operation, the old gentle
man has been in a comatose condi
tion most of the time, but rousing
Friday and Saturday nights with re
quests for something to eat, but out
side of that seems insensible to pain
nor inclined to speak of the accident
in any way. Up to Monday he was,
still alive, and it may not be known
for a time wliat the result may be.

A Des Moines paper states that two
auto delivery wagons have been de

| to go into service with the coming of
parcel post on the first of January.
Undoubtedly the government, in go
ing into the merchandise business,
I will require these auto wagons in every
city of any importance. An indication
of wliat is expected through parcels
posts is shown in the fact that Sears
Roebuck & Co. of Chicago have made
requisition on the Chicago postmaster
asking that seventy-five cars be de
tailed for the use of their house in
handling parcels post after January
first. To those who have figured that
the country merchant is not going to

are preparing to use parcels post is a
