A SEW AM) FAST ROUTE.
The Burlington Hatch Eye says that
the time from that city to Cincinnati will
be about seventeen hours as soon as all
arrangements are perfected. And the
ride on through to Baltimore will soon
be made without a change of cars, by
the completion of the bridge at Parkers-
burs:. The route designated is from
Burlington to Cincinnati, by way of th
C. B. & Q. to Peoria, thence by the In
dianapolis, Bhomington and Western
Indianapolis and Lafavette. This route
leaves Chicago out, and saves six hours
to say nothing of delay and expense by
the route through that city.

Have our city authorities taken the
necessary steps to secure the erection o

day because of our lack of a good schoo
house. We have as good teachers ns
can be found anywhere, and we have
two very good school houses for prima

buildinjr for advanced pupils. If the
matter has not been attended to, it shou!
be, without delay.
The Beatrice Express says: Rumors
are current that 3Ir. Peavy, of Pawnee

graphed for him, receiving, as is reported,
the above intelligence. It is supposed
that money was the object."
A villainous attempt was made to
throw the mail train of the B. & 31
from the track about three miles west of
Fairfield, Iowa, on Saturday morning
last. A rail and 20 ties were placed on
the track near an embankment thirty
feet high. The engine broke the rail
and threw off the ties, almost miracu
lously escaping from a plunge down the
embankment. No clue to the perpe
trators of the outrage as yet.

its signal failure to shape the politics of
Nebraska to its liking? Let's have an
editorial upon some other subject for a

such an unreasonable thing. The Trib

it hangs to it with tenacity. It will

money is expended which was donated to
