As a freight train came into Juniata, on
Wednesday morning from the west, the rails
spread at the cut just west of town, throwing
two cars and a caboose <jff the track. Quite
a large force of hands has been repairing all
day. All trains were delayed. Passengers
were transferred once by trains meeting there
from each direction, The first train passed at
nine o’clock Wednesday evening. Nobody
was hurt but some damage was done to the
cars.—Juniata cor. Omaha Bee.
At the Burlington yard, last week, a party
of about forty prominent railroad men as
sembled to watch the practical test of the
Dunn automatic car coupler, which is being in
troduced by the Universal Car Coupler com
pany, a local corporation. The most trying
experiments were made with a view to fully
ascertaining the exact value of the invention
in actual service on the road. All degrees of
curves were run and the cars were coupled
and uncoupled upon them and all sorts of
sudden and unusual strains were put upon the
appliances, but in every case they worked per
fectly and gave great satisfaction. The coup
lers which were used in the experiments have
had steady and trying work on the slag train,
so their strength has been amply demonstrat
The rule of Nebraska railroads which limits
local tickets to the day upon which they are
purchased is to be tested in the courts. Under
this rule, which went into effect nearly a year
ago, parties purchasing local tickets must use
them the same day or forfeit the privilege of
using them. Local agents are permitted to
refund the money for unused tickets within
three days, after which time they must go
through the red tape process in the general
offices. A citizen of Hardy purchased a ticket
for Superior on April 18, but did not use it.
Several weeks later he presented it to the
agent at Hardy and asked for a new ticket or
his money. Both were refused. He then
boarded the cars and offered the ticket. The
conductor refused it and demanded fare. Not
receiving it he ejected the passenger, who
now brings suit for damages. It is hardly
probable that the courts will sustain the rule.

The Burlington flyer was several hours late
last Tuesday night, owing to an accident at
Guide Rock. No. 5 was thrown off the track
at that place and five cars ditched. The ac
cident was caused by the washout of a bridge,
but no loss of life resulted.—Lincoln Journal.
It is rumored that we will soon have a new
time card which will bring the train to Im
perial in the evening to stay over night and
go out in the morning. This will be a great
accommodation to our people who can go to
McCook or further on business and return the
same day.—Imperial Voice.

The railroad managers ought to realize by
this time that tha people are inclined to resent
the determination to keep the world’s fair
rates up to the highest possible notch. If
something is not done to put reasonable fares
into effect pretty soon the result will surely
be the wholesale cancellation of resolutions
to visit the fair. This is not an idle threat.
It is business.

Anti-mortem obituary notices of General C.
H. VanWyck continue to appear in a number
of the state papers. In the meantime the
general is up and well on the way to recovery.
If all the prominent financiers and states
men who declare that the country is going to
the devil unless the coinage of silver stops,
and all the other prominent financiers and
statesmen who declare that ruin can only be
averted by free coinage, are all rigHt, it is
plain to be seen that the country is strictly
“between the devil and the deep, deep sea.”
We are assured by a newspaper that seems
to be the personal organ of Commissioner
General Garneau that the “smoking room in
the Nebraska building is a dream of beauty*”
or words to that effect. It is a very good
scheme for Mr. Garneau to have a nice smok
ing room for himself and His friends, but what
about com and hogs and sugar and beets?
The “dream of beauty” that the sound, prac
tical business men of this state want to see at
the World’s fair has something to do with
showing up our great staples to good advan
tage. The Nebraska appropriation was not
made for the purpose of promoting the con
sumption of champagne. It was made for
