The burglars who cracked ITayden &
McCartney's safe made a better haul
than was firs * , supposed. In addition
to-the fifty dollars belonging to the firm ,
they captured three hundred and fifty
belonging to Tom McCartney individu
ally. It seems tnat just before ? 'I-r.
McCartney started for St. Louis , he put
three hundred and fifty dollars in a
pocket book , and locked it up * * n a pri
vate department in the safe.He said
nothing about it to the boy ? in the
store , and tke first intimation of it
they'had was when he returned home
Train No. 1 .on t3ie B. & M. ran
over a man and injurcll him so Xlwt he
died almost instantly , shortly after
leaving I ineoki on S-unday ai'terno.on.
The man and a vronmi were walking
on the road , and were engaged in some
kind of an ; tUer0 l4on. The $ ra5n com
ing around a curve at a rapid speedthe
man was unable to get * oat oflie way ,
and the engineer could not stop the

Frank Jeffreys , yard mas'ter of the
B. & M. railroad at McCook , was mar
ried to Miss Annie Single of-Ct bcrtson
on Sunday night. The many friends of
the happy pair assembled at the-
Churchill House after the ceremony ,
and showed their appreciation of the
occasion , and cxoressed their congratu
lations , in a manner that acitlier the
bridal cmple , nor the neighbors , will
ever forget. The TR'IBUNE can not
make as much noise as did the friends
on that evening , but its wishes for the
happiness and prosperity of Mr. and
Mrs. Jeffreys arc just as warm.
We 'earn that a new town or. the line
of the B. & 31. cut-off has been laid
out in Phelps County. It is eight and
one-half miles northwest of Sacramento ,
and about the same distance southeast
of Phelps Centre. Capt. Phillips , rep
resenting the Land Company , visited
both of these towns , invitirtg'the people
of each to move to the ue\v townwhich
is to be called Iloldredge , after the
Superintendent of the B. & 35. R. R.
and offered as an inducement that each
owner of a business lot , or residence lot
in their present location would be giv
en a business lot or residence lotin this
irew town , as the cas. : might I'o. The
offer wa accepted by a great aiauy bus
iness men of both places , : iml before
very long the probability is that both
towns will be on wheels moving toward
the new location. It is said th.it gre.it
excitement exists over the choice in FO-
I'jction of lots , aud that nrinv arz
sc-lling at high figures.
We learn of a case of most crael and
heartless desertion in 'our city , in which
a former railroad man deserts hid wife ,
-and in company with another woman ,
goes way out west , making no provis
ions for the poor woman and young
children whom liu loaves .behind.
Words are too weak to express our con
demnation of this cowardly act , and no
punishment would be to great for the
Kcoufcdrcl. As the wfe desires 1.0
shield the husband by denying the re
ports , we sujiptefcs the names. To the
honor of the railrotid boya in oor city ,
it can be siiid 'that in a very few hours ,
on Tuesday , they raised a purne of
nearly $50. and sent it to the unfortu
nate woman to relieve her present des
W'c ? carn from the -Hastings Gazette-
Journal thit : an a'tt-Miipt was made to
itvvjkthe s of tin ; XI. P. railroad in
that city on Sunday niglit. The bur
glars , it is suppo.svd , were 'threein
number , and they tried to get into 'the
safe by cutting it | .m fti the side with
; ui uxe and a sharp pick. 'They ; ro't
through -the outside Dilate and
M-rajMHi away the lire proof
wht/a for some unknown reason-they de
sisted from $ in tlicr work. 'The taunner
in which they attempted Co get into the
s.iie , and the tools u ed were the same
as "when a more cfFectu.il attempt was
made on Hayden & McCartnys , and
Byrnn's safes in IftcCook , aid it is not ,
improbable that the same parties par
ticipated in both jobs. If t-he same ,
they will be picked up one of these
frosty nights , and.justice meted out to
* them in western stvle.
Success in Life.
Major U. II. Cnswell -Indianola ,
lectured on 'lie above named subject at
tire -Band Hall , on Wednesday evening.
The icuturc was full of good points , and
deep hi > toricifi research , and carried
th'c 'close attention of the audience from
the opening until the close. We arc
sorry that a larger number of our people
ple could not have heard the lecture ,
for it r/as one thai was fcut only enter
taining and instructive , but one that
must also have -a good , moral "effect
upon $ ts auditors. While the attend
ance was not largo , owing to the incle
mency of the weather without doubt ,
the Major -can congratulate himself
that the audience was FAIR and select
Fleeced by a Sharper.
On Tuesda ; morning at Platlsiftouth
Junction , a farmer , accompanied by
his family , who was on 3)is way to In-

story , about a consignment of goods by
freight having to be paid-in advance ,
and offering the farmer a bond for $1000
as security. A false baggage agent
who was called in vouched for the vali
dity of the bond. Aflcr the aforesaid
farmer has been in the wide-awake west
awhile he won't be gulled so easily.
