When a Lincoln citizen attempts to
shuffle off this mortal coil a little irregu

action gaily as an attempt at “Hubero
mania.” Thus the colonel will become
Dr. J. A. Gunn of Spearfish, South
Dakota, has been appointed Burlington
surgeon at this point. The doctor is an
accomplished surgeon and a clever gen
tleman. He is an old-timer in the valley,
having formerly lived in Arapahoe. His
many friends in the valley will warmly
welcome him back to his old haunts.
The present train service on the Has
tings and Oberlin line has been the cause
of much complaint since the change of
time, November 5th, but it is likely that
a change for the better will be made
very soon. It is rumored that the mixed
train now in service will be discontinued
and that two trains, a passenger and a
freight, will be again put on the line.
Such a change will be appreciated by
the patrons of the Burlington.—Red
Twenty Burlington & Quincy engineers
left Galesburg, Tuesday night, to take
the places of the strikers on the Lehigh
Valley road. Several persons are out
west hiring men for the Lehigh Valley
road. There is a large surplus of men on
the Burlington, and it is believed many
will go. The Burlington furnishes trans
portation and 30 days leave of absence.
Some of those going came here six years
ago to take the places of the strikers on
While riding on a B. & M. train, a few
days ago, the gentleman beside me was
much annoyed by the cinders that shot
in above the lowered window of the front
door of the car, covering the car seats and
the clothing of the passengers. Several
times he left his place and went forward
to hoist it, but always came back unsuc
cessful. In his final effort he was seen
by a brakemau, who, pressing the spring
in the proper way, at once raised the
window and stopped the annoyance.
When that was done, and done so easily
by the company’s employe, the gentle
man turned to me and said: “that’s what
comes of knowing how to do it.” The
very accomplishment of knowing how to
do it, or the lack of knowing how to do
it, is what makes a man a success or a
failure in life. There are very few of us
that know how to do it, but a great many
who think they know. When a man
fails in business of a kind not suited to
his capacity or experience, it is generally
because he was mistaken in thinking he
knew how to do it. This possession of
the knowledge of how to do a thing, or
the want of it, is what makes or breaks.

The article in last week’s issue stating

The “Maple Grove” den of infamy was
the scene of a first-class row, last night,
in which a certain and well known trav
elling man was badly beaten and disfig
ured. It seems that during a visit made
that joint a few weeks since he incurred
the enmity of the inmates, and when he
put in an appearance there, last night,
he was set upon by a number of the
painted Amazons therein and badly dis
figured. He will likely be around again
when his head heals up and his eye as
sumes a natural hue,—but he’ll give the
“Maple Grove” a wide berth.
The County-Seat Case.
The Red Willow county-seat removal
