Supt. of Motive Power Hawksworth was up from Plattsmouth, Tuesday, on business of his department. Engineer E. G. Batton's wife was taken down seriously ill, Monday night, and her recovery is not expected. Grace Sanborn came up from Hastings college, Friday evening, to visit her par ents and friends here over the holidays. Brakeman Charlie McConnell had the misfortune to shoot off the little finger of his left hand, accidentally, last Friday. Roadmaster Haley would like to see the color of the individual’s hair that took his dun horse, the other night, and failed to return the animal. Night Operator Graham has been trans ferred to Akron, and is succeeded by W. L. Frame of the same place, the two ex changing positions.—Oxford Standard. The night yard crew have been dis pensed with at this place on account of change in time of trains, which took effect on Sunday last.—Red Cloud Argus. It is rumored that the Burlington will extend its Black Hills line, this coming spring, and an immense number of ties are now being cut in the mountains for that purpose. The Goodland, Kansas, News says: We hear rumors that the B. & M. road will come to us, next year, on its way to the southwest, and if it does we can look for a division and shops here. Jim McAlpine of the Adams express is selling chances on a solid gold watch which he will shortly raffle off to some lucky fellow, who will secure a nice time keeper for the outlay of a dollar. L. I. Meserve and the rest of the boys who went back to the Lehigh road, two or three weeks ago, returned home, Mon day night. They are all pretty well sat isfied to remain on the Burlington. William Bardon, Wallace’s first station agent, who is now doing special work, with headquarters at McCook, stopped off, Wednesday, to round up his host of admiring friends. He returned yesterday. —Wallace Star. ' Mrs. W. G. Wilson is quite ill. For Sale—A coal oil heater, as good as new. D. E. Bomgardner. Mrs. Will Brown has been entertaining her sister, Miss Wertz of Hastings. Mrs. Timothy Hannan, senior, is very sick, with the chances against her recov ery, from old age and neglect. It is thought that Frank Hawksworth will succeed to the foremanship of the McCook shops. Thomas Crabtree’s name is mentioned. Either would make good men men. This week Elmer Rowell and Felix Kennedy were discharged from the com pany’s service. Both are capable and popular men and their dismissal is sin cerely regretted by a wide and warm cir cle of friends. Thomas Sharp, who has been a bene ficiary of the Burlington Relief since his accident, last winter, was able to resume work, last week, and went to Red Cloud to supply the foremanship of the yards at that place for a time.—Oxford Stand ard. After a few weeks service at McCook, the efficiency of Sam Gildner has been rewarded by his appointment to the cashiership of the freight department at the above-named point. Sam has since established a permanent home in Mc Cook, shipping his personal effects from this place, the early part of the week.— Oxford Standard. Foreman Ritchie of the McCook shops has received a promotion in the compa ny’s service, leaving for his new station, Wednesday morning. It is thought that he is to be master mechanic under Supt. Phelan. Jim is a thoroughly competent man, and we congratulate him on his elevation, though sorry to lose him and family from our midst. Charlie Sterner was so unfortunate as to get his left hand caught while coup ling cars, last Friday. Amputation of part of the third finger was necessary, which was performed by the company surgeon, Dr. Damerell. Only a short time ago Charlie lost the first two fingers of the same hand in the same way at McCook. He has about made up his mind to quit railroading.—Red Cloud Argus. While driving home from a hunting excursion, the other evening, Engineer Holliday had the misfortune to drive his black mare into a barb wire fence which had been built across a road, and no ditch or other obstruction made to indi cate the fact. The mare was severely cut about about the front legs. When fences are built across traveled roads the law requires that some sign be given the public of the same, in order that such accidents as this one may be averted. The unfortunate mental condition of Conductor Frank Brainard is generally deplored. A week or two since he went east to the bedside of his mother, and while there his mental derangement be came so marked that he was sent back here in charge of an officer, arriving in the city on last Friday night. Since this time he has been under the care of rela tives and friends here, being assisted by an uncle who arrived from Iowa,Monday night. No special cause is known for his sad condition. All hope, however, that the clouds which now obscure his mind may be soon driven away, and he be again clothed with unimpaired mental faculties. REPUBLICAN CITY. Len. Harding has been sick for a few days. Ex-Agent Hills has Jack Williams’ place at McDonald. Walter Washburn has gone home for a visit with his parents and friends. Mrs. W. W.

The citizens at McDonald held an in dignation meeting, Thursday night, and requested the company by petition and resolution to reinstate Agent Williams. Born.—To Mr. and Mrs. Knodle, on Thursday, the 6th inst., at Ludell, an 18 pound boy. No prouder man paces the soil of Kansas than the happy father. All parties to the event are doing well. St. Patrick’s Fair. St. Patrick’s fair opened in the opera house, last night, under most favorable and encouraging auspices, with a large attendance and liberal patronage. The interest already is such as to guarantee a very successful fair.
