ious matters , and , peihaps , of self-denial , i
will not come again for another j'ear , There j
ismoreover , sweet memory about these fasts <
and feasts , whether one believes in their util- <
ity or not , but it does seem as if there was a
dignity in the church crying "halt" to the
"fashionables" ' once a year. But really it is
a simple matter to keep Lent and physically <
it is a pleasure.
This week , The Huddleston Lumber Co.
purchased lot 19 , block 2S , from Banker Clark
of Jlolyoke , Colo. , and leased lots 20 , 21 , 22 , 1
in same block , thus giving them control of :
the entire west half , of block 2S. Their pres
ent offices , or new quarters , will be in due c
time be located facing Marshall street and on i
the Dennison street lot , which will place i
them in much better position to improve the s
shining business hours as they pass. t
Early in the week , S. W. Huddleston ex
hibited tho soundness of his 'judgment and .
the quality of his confidence in McCook's fu
ture by purchasing three lots on Upper Main ,
Avenue fioin H. W. Cole , Esq. , who held ,
contract from theLincoln Land Co. for same. .
Mr. Huddleston has one ot tiie choicest loca- .
tions in the city and in the course of events r
hopes to have erected thereon a comfortable , ;
commodious and convenient home , in which {
the ornate will not be lacking.
The detestible dog poisoner is putting in ]
his odd time , just now , and as is usually the i
case , a number of valuable and highly prized 1
canines have climed the golden staiis by that 3
route , among the number being those of Tony 1
Probst and W. M. Lewis , the former's dog 1
dying in the owner's stable on West Denni-
son street , Lewis' large animal being found
dead in front of Tire Tiubuxe office , early t
yesterday morning. Unfortunately the crop
of worthless curs is still by far too great. j
The improvements now progressing on 1
Register Hart's farm east of the city are of a t
most substantial character. The dwelling is (
being increased in height to full two stories , 1
besides a large addition is being built to the 1
same ; all of which will make it a model 1
fdrm house , commodious and convenient. A (
new well of ample flow of the costal liquid 1
has been sunk ; trees and vines planted in j
prbfusiou ; fences , eta , provided as the needs i
of the case required. Mr. and Mi's. Hai t exj
pect to occupy this new , suburban home the 1
first of the coming month. 1
While F. O. Newman was driving Regis
ter Hart's blooded colt. Sunday afternoon , '
the high-spirited animal , in some inexplicaj j
ble manner , got one les over one of the
shafts , and became unmanageable. Newman
was thrown out of thecartauddniggedsome 1
distance , when he fortunately extricated s
himself from a perilous position. In the <
runaway following , the animal was badly in1 1
jured , one of the thills penetrating through a i
front leg , making a large , ugly wound , i
which may result seriously. The aniinal is 1
a very valuable one , the Register has refnsed <
§ 400 for her , and it is to be hoped that i
the injury may not be permanent. F. O. had ]
a narrow escape , upon which iio congratu- i
lates himself , as the outlook for him for a :
while was not particularly loseate. I

Two good office rooms. Inquire of Frees
& Hocknell Lumber Co.
A 4-room house north of Catholic church.
Inquire of W. H. Davis.
A man who kicks his wife out of bed on a
cold wmtpr morning when the thermometer
is twenty degrees below zero to build a fire ,
is a mean man. A church member worth
5100,000 and pays only one dollar per year to
the church , is a very mean cus with whom
the angels will never care to associate , a.
man who will live two \ \ eeks on a soup made
from two horn buttons , is a mean , niggardly
creature on whom the devil would never care
to feast. The man who will beat hi child
for poking its finger into a pail of water and
then inquiring what become of the hole when
it took its finger out , is a terribly mean man.
The man who loafs on street coiners for
the sole purpose of making remarks about
the ladies who chance to pass by , is one who
ought to be stretched up by the heels till the
part where his brains ought to be is filled
with blood. But J. D. Sexson , of Spring
field , Neb. , who took the Pioneer for overlO
years without paying for it and then put it
back in the postoffice , marked "Refused , " is
aboutthe meanest man the Lord ever let live.
We have the names of a few more men about
as mean that we will publish in the near fu
ture. Arapahoe Pioneer.
We notice by our exchanges in this sena
torial district that it is pretty generally ex-
pected and desired that Senator Lindsay of [
this city , will soon receive the appointment ,
of Register of the McCook land office. It is
not unlikely that he may receive the appoint
ment Certain it is that no better appoint
ment could , be made. Mr. Lindsay is well '
qualified to discharge the duties of the office.
It would bother anyone to state a good rea- '
son why he should not have the appointment '
if lie wants it We judge that he would feel ;
at liberty to accept the position should , it be
tendered him. While we should very much
regret to lose Mr. and Mrs. Lindsay from
Beaver City , we are the last to impose any
objection , should he regard the tender of the
place in a favorable light Beaver City '
As the lawns about the city are showing
themselves in their delicate green tiie thought
arises that this color is the leas : tiring to the
eye of all the colors , due to the fact that the
number of pulsations on the retina of the eye
in receiving this color is very uiuch less than '
is the case with other colors. Some will say
that this is a special arrangement of nature ,
while others will say that the eye has become
accustomed to the universal green , and if the
prevailing color had been red the same re
sult would have been brought about by the
same experience and association. Yoii' are
free to choose.

as above stated , fortunately seeing the train 1
in time to avert a collision , however.
The Burlington officials , Messrs. Holdrege , .
Stone , , Peasley , Calvert , all of the division
superintendents and assistant superintend- .
cnts , were here Monday in consultation as to
the advisability of cutting down the force of .
the road's employes , in all departments , at '
least 20 per cent. This move creates a good
deal of excitement among the employes of the '
road , and many of them are consequently on
the anxious seat. The action of the confer- :
ence cannot yet bo ascertained , but Ihe feel- '
mg is strong that there will be a general lopp- ;
ing off of the company's help. Bee. ]
The recent long distance runs of Iocoxno- .
tives and crews on eastern and western :
railroads foreshadow an early radical change ]
in the present system of train running. For :
sevoral months past new and improved loco
motives havo been in operation on the Penn- ]
sylvauia road , making the trip from New York <
to Pittsburg without change , and also on the j
New York Central between New York and
Buffalo. These tests have proved entirely sat- ,
isfactory , and demonstrated the capacity of J
first-class engines for distance as well as
speed. The annoynnces of frequent crews are '
obviated and a considerable saving in time
and money effected. Several 6uch tests have
been made on the western roads , notably on
ttm Union Pacific and Chicago & Northwestern
It is confidently inserted that In a few years
four and flvt * hundred mile inns will become '
IhesiveniKuof. psssomjer eruns. The time is
not distant when trains will regularly run five
hundred miles in from twelve to ten hours ,
