W. R. Starr oresented the diplomas and Rev. C. D. Gearlock pronounced the benediction. On Wednesday of this week a serious accident happened to three little boys, Harry and Ray, sons of County Clerk Roper, and Carl, son of Andy Lord. They were playing in the rear of Shafer’s drugstore where they found a can containing phosphorus, not know ing its deadly nature they put some of it in there pockets and started home when just back of the Sargent hotel they began to scream from fright and pain and were discovered in flames, several citizens gathered and carried them to the pump, where it was thought fhe fire was extinquished but be fore they reached home it broke out again. They were taken to ihoir homes and doctors called, and everything done for them that medical skill could do but at pres ent writing they are very low and fears are entertained for their lives. The brilliant, courageous and learned Dr. Briggs has been “turned down” by his brethren of the Presbyterian faith. Perhaps, after all, the Bible is a safer pilot than the liberal wisdom of the Doctor. The matter cannot be re garded more grave than as an in cident of these inquiring and doubting times, when Christians will find safety in sailing under light canvas. Theke is a whole volume in ex Secretary Foster’s explanation of his failure. “My failure simply illustrates the great folly of per mitting one’s self to be in debt be yond the reach of reasonably quick assets when the hour of difficult borrowing comes. My business was largely done with borrowed money.” And yet the greatest en terprises that have been undertaken by prudent and brainy business men have been carried through on borrowed money. It is now almost certain that the Vanderbilt system which now reaches along the North Platte, through central • Wyoming to Casper, will soon be extended on to Ogden. This promises to become the great trans-continental line for freights on account of its low grade. The Union Pacific, al though traveling that portion of Wyoming least adapted to agricul ture, has yet been of vast benefit to the state, if in nothing else than the opening up of its prosperous coal mines. With the Burlington also pushing through northern Wyoming and to the Yellowstone Park her future seeme full of roseate promise. The successful sinking of an ar tesian well in the suburbs of Pierre explodes the theory that the great artesian basin of the Dakotas ter minated or ran out on the west with the Missouri river. This new spouter throws 500 gallons of water under a pressure of 175 pounds to the square inch a minute, and demonstrates that at a depth of from 1,200 to 1,300 feet the arte sian basin can be reached almost anywhere east of the Black Hills. It is believed now that the basin extends westward at least to the Hills. If such prove the case there is no reason why every foot of land in the broad expanse of that domain should not be made ultimately valuable by means of artesian ir rigation. A young Detroit lawyer lias on exhibition at the fair a model of a new aerial electric railway which he is confident will bring about im mediately the “revelation” in transportation which has been so confidently predicted for the last ten years. It is a car shaped like Cleopatra’s needle and swung on low wheels running on a single rail elevated about twenty feet from the ground and securely fastened to brackets hung on a row of heavy posts. The power is furnished through an ordinary trolley pole from a wire running a few feet over the track. The car is designed to reach a speed of 500 miles an hour. It is managed by automatic devices by operators stationd along the line and therefore carries no weight be yond the load of merchandise and mail matter. The mail bags are placed on shelves so arranged that when the destination of each bag is reached a projecting arm strikes a bit of mechanism, the shelf falls, and as the mail drops into a net the train whizzes by without the slightest pause in its speed. It is claimed that friction is reduced to a minimum on this road, that a high spoed can be maintained with very little power, and that the trains can be handled with entire safety. After putting the mail and express line in successful operation the inventor, Mr. Widdis, will turn his attention to the construction of a car designed for carrying passen gers. The Crete Vidette has its lantern in hand and is looking for an honest man to run for supreme judge on the republican ticket. That paper also desires a man who is still alive —here in body, as it were. These requirements exclude a very large army of old stagers who would like to doze away the few remaining years of their senility on the supreme bench. Still the Yidette is unquestionably right. Let .the party select the man, as it did two years ago, for his ability and fitness for the high and dignified office Nebraska has some excel lent lawyers, who would be accep table to the party and the people and who would commajid universal respect. There is no other office in the state that so imperatively de mands the very highest order of men. Integrity, ability and cool, steady judgment are indispensable qualities. Give us such a man and we will not ask where he comes from or who his friends have been. —CALL AT— LENHART’S LAUNDRY For First-Class Laundry Work. McCook, - - - Nebraska. Going to Buy a Watch?
