This week, the section hands from River
ton, Amboy, Cowels and both sections of Red
Cloud have been engaged in extending and
putting in new switches and tracks in the B
& M. Yards. The B. & M. folks are fixing up
the yards in nice shape, and we look for them
to put their shops in this city one of these
days.—Red Cloud Chief.
If the railroad managers will give up the
arduous task of watching their competitors
long enough to mingle with the people fora
few days they will discover that the tide of
travel will not set in strongly toward Chicago
until the cost of tickets is made about one
fare for the round trip. When the rate is
published every passenger coach in the Mis
sissippi valley must be pressed into the pleas
ant work of earning dividends for the com
pany to which it belongs.
Round trip tickets to Sheridan, Wyoming,
will be on sale Tuesday, May 30th, at the low
rate of ten dollars at all Burlington Route
stations from Nebraska City to Lincoln and
from Lincoln to Oxford, as well as all points
north thereof. Equally reduced rates will ap
ply from stations south and east of the line
designated. Special train leaves Lincoln at
at 12:20 noon, May 30th. For further informa

A great delegate convention will be held in
Lincoln on June 28, the purpose of which is to
show the feasibility and practicability of a
north and a south railroad from the Dakotas
to the gulf, to be owned and operated by the
, states through which it will pass. There will
be delegates from North and South Dakota,
Minnesota, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Arkan
sas, Oklahoma and Texas. Among the list
of distinguished statesmen who will be pres
ent, appears the name of Hon. Jerry Simpson,
of Kansas, otherwise known to fame as “Sock
less Jerry.”
Brakeman E. W. Casey is on the list of
cripples with a painfully contused right foot,
received at Otis, Colorado, Sunday evening.
The accident happened while the freight train
was backing down from the water tank to
the depot, where Casey had gone to get or
ders. In the rain and darkness he did not
notice that the train was backing up, and in
crossing the track was struck and knocked
down. By some tall scrambling he managed
to get out from under the car, but the wheel
caught a part of his foot and bruised it up
badly. It was a narrow escape. He will be
about in a few weeks.
A wreck occurred on the Burlington Monday
afternoon about 4 o’clock, about half a mile
west of Corona, which completely destroyed
five or six cars. The track was blocked about
five hours, delaying the west bound flyer at
this place two hours. The track was torn up
for about thirty yards. The cars being loaded
with stone and coal there was no great loss
in freight. Fortunately no one was hurt and
the track was cleared at 10.30 p. m. and trains
started moving. This is the second wreck
that has occurred at this place in the last two
days, and both occurred by journals breaking.
The wrecking trains arrived in both cases and
saved them from a great amount of delay.
Railroad men have long suspected that the
invention of the telephone caused a tendency
to less travel among busy people. When the
new line was completed between Chicago and
New York their attention was called to the
fact that Theodore Thomas examined a New
York pianist by telephone, completing the en
tire transaction without causing the appli
cant to spend a dollar for railroad fare. They
have quietly investigated the matter since,
and it is now stated that the telephone has
caused a perceptible decrease in travel be
tween the two cities among a certain class of
business men to whom time is precious. It
is now possible for a director in a railroad
company, for instance, to attend a meeting of
the board in Chicago without leaving his
office in New York. The business can be
done by telephone, and at least one court has
decided that such a meeting is legal. The
railroad men are preparing to meet this curi
ous and unexpected competition by increas
ing the speed of their trains.

The B. & M. have had eighteen cars of new
steel distributed this week from the state line
east and the steel gang are now at work tak
ing out the old and putting in the new. This,
the company is doing all along the main line
and when completed, the will ballast the road,
making it the easiest traveling road in the
west.—Haigler News.
The private car in which the martyred
President, Abraham Lincoln, used to travel
around in the troublesome times when he was
president, is now in the repair shops of the
Union Pacific at Omaha. It will be fixed up
as near like it was when the great martyr had
it and then it will be placed on exhibition at
the world’s fair. It will doubtless attract
much attention. Of late years the car has
been used as a boarding car for section men*
at North Platte.

more to follow.

The great fair is dazzling in brilliancy;
overpowering in size; magnificent alike in
conception and execution.
When Adam was a boy, world’s fairs were
not thought of. They’re a modern product.
And the more modern they are, the better
they are.
The Columbian exposition is the latest and
best—a long way the best. The whole wide
world has combined to make it worthy of the
nineteenth century and no endeavor was ever
more successful.
A visit to it is the privilage of a lifetime,
and the easiest and best way to avail your
self of that privilege is to take the Burling
ton route to Chicago. The local agent will
gladly give you any information you stand in
need of.

know just where nor how many places he
might visit.
S. P. Hart spent the early days of the week
in Omaha, where he had a case in the United
States court over an old cattle deal. He re
turned home, Wednesday night, before a ver
dict had been arrived at.
Trice’s negro minstrels played to a full
house at the Menard, Wednesday evening,
giving fair satisfaction, we understand. A bat
tery of forty pounders couldn’t keep away a
crowded house from a minstrel show.
Don Thomas had an experience with a bold
bad burglar, the other night, which Don’s
chums take pleasure in relating to his evident
discomfiture. The boys claim that the scene
was highly tragical, as well as amusing, when
Don emerged from under the bed, inquiring
breathlessly, “are the burglars gone?” after
the “burglar” had been in bed fast asleep for
half an hour. Charlie and John Heber mourn
a sadly demoralized alarm clock, which was
utterly knocked out in the wild excitement fol -
lowing the entrance of the “burglar.”
