The family of Lew Barger moved the

a postal run on the Imperial branch, but
makes his headquarters in the afore
mentioned city.—Oxford Standard.
Two of Walter Godfrey’s little chil
dren came very near climbing the golden
stairs, a few days since, by drinking half
the contents of a bottle of Railroad
cough medicine, which doubtless con
tains opium.
The east bound B. & M. passenger
train from Denver to Kansas City struck
an old man who was driving a team across
the track, just west of Bloomington,Neb.,
last Tuesday. The man received injuries
from which it was thought he would die
before medical assistance could be ob
tained.—Oberlin Opinion.
Regular railway mail service has been
authorized on the B. & M. line, between
Edgemont, S. D., and Sheridan,Wyo., to
begin November 15th. F. M. Moore and
H. H. Alden have been transferred from
the Pacific Junction and McCook route
to the new route, and they will be suc
ceeded by F. L. Keller and W. J. Gilles
pie on the Pacific Junction line.
On application of the federal govern
ment the United States district court at
Omaha, Monday morning, appointed J.
W. Doane of Chicago and F. R. Condert
of New York additional receivers of the
Union Pacific railroad, without opposi
tion. The petition sets forth that the
claims of the government against the
road entitle it to a larger representation
among the receivers.
A rather fascinating railway project
has been broached in connection with
the immense power goining to waste in
the Niagara river. It is proposed to run
electric cars from New York to Chicago
at the rate of ioo miles an hour, power
to be generated in the most picturesque
way imaginable. At Buffalo the road is
to cross the Niagara river on a great
bridge, and the electric current is to orig
inate at monster steel water wheels under
the bridge, moved by the current of the
river. It is figured that the bridge will
furnish power enough for the whole line,
and leave a neat surplus to sell.
It is safe to say that at no time since
the construction of the Kenesaw cut-off,
some eight or nine years ago, has the
railway service at this place been so mis
erable and unsatisfactory as at present.
With four trains discontinued, the past
several months, there are now but two
passenger trains each way daily on the
main line and but one between Oxford
and Kansas City. In the face of this re
duction it is intimated that even further
retrenchment will be made. In view of
the fact that both passenger and fre.^ht
traffic hold up well, it is difficult to com
prehend the whyness of the policy pur
sued by the usually enterprising Burling
ton Route. There is evidently some mys
terious reason,best known to the officials
themselves, but it does not appear fo be
clear to the average Nebraskan at this
writing.—Oxford Standard.

Hard times have not prevented the

tend a hearty welcome.—Edison Mirror.
The State board of transportation re
ceived application from the various rail
roads operating in this state asking to be
exempted from the penalties prescribed
by the transfer switch law nearly two
months ago.
The good people of Edison are indig
nant over the removal of their popular
railroad agent, J. W. Watkins, who has
given such general satisfaction to the
public. There has been some under
handed work done against Mr. Watkins,
and his friends, who are legion, are de
termined that the guilty ones shall be
exposed and their motives made plain
to all.—Arapahoe Mirror.
Some of the mountain railroads in
Switzerland find it advantageous to open
long before the snow melts on their up
per parts, and to do this an enormous
amount of snow has to be shoveled away.
Last May, when the road from Glion, on
Lake Geneva, up to Rocher de Nave was
opened, the cars ran for some distance
between walls of solid compressed snow
twelve to twenty feet high. When the
work began one of the upper stations
had disappeared, and it was supposed
that it had been swept away by the
winter storms. A rounded elevation was
recognized as the site of the water tank,
and from this the position of the station
was determined and excavations were
begun. After digging down six feet the
shovelers struck, not the foundation but
the roof of the station, which was in its
place intact.
Republican City.
Operator Talcott of Orleans takes Edi
son office. Operator Hill succeeds him

Bluffs while Agent Davis goes east with
his little boy to have his boy’s leg oper

from Trenton succeeds him here.
D. B. Hollinger and Prof. Heard spent
Friday evening at W. W. Green’s. Music
was a feature in which every body took
a part. Prof. Heard rendered some of
his unapproachable selections on the
guitar,—a treat not to be missed by any
Agent Reed at Herndon asked for and
received a change from that station on
account of the existence in the town of
two factions who are always at war and
who try to rope every body else into the
fight. Operator Carl takes his place.
We extend our sympathy to him.
