Beyrer had a finger pinched at Ayer Saturday. I. . E. Smith was visiting his parents at Strat ton this week. H. Thrailkill is off duty, being confined to his home from illness. Trainmaster Kenyon, is back from his tour over the St. Francis line. C. H. McCarl and C. R. McConnell are vis iting in St. Joseph this week. Mrs. W. W. Josellyn of Orleans visited Mc Cook friends, first of the week. H. Rowell is among those who are drawing a little from the Burlington relief. Harvey Miller, who has been off duty for for the past month, is again on duty. Tom Wilkinson, who fell from a box car at Holdrege last week, is on duty again. Mrs. J. E. Sanborn was taken down to Lin coin, yesterday morning, for treatment. The snow storm of Wednesday, extended as far west as Benkelman, and east to Hast ings. Charles Sterner, who was injured sometime ago in the Red Cloud yards, has reported for duty. H. H. Bell, has retired from the company’s service, and has not yet determined what he will do. Charles McGuckin, checkman of the Denver transfer company, was the guest of Rev. Mc Bride, this week. Assistant Dispatcher Townsend, has been visiting friends in Lincoln, this week. They say there is another attraction there. The three large ice houses here, are fiiied, the job having been completed Sunday last, averaging thirteen inches in thickness. Mr. Lucas is the new boss boiler maker. He comes from the Wisconsin Centrai. Is a man of family, and highly recommended. Trains are now running on the St. Francis line, in to Kansas—the tax question having been settled between the county treasurer of Cheyenne county and the railway officials. Tom Wilkinson is showing a strong desire to take to the stage. His friends down at the depot say it will take a larger surface than the top of a box-car affords, for him to stand up on, providing he should conclude to become an actor. The earnings of the Stamford station on the B. & M. railroad as line charges and prepaid forwarded for 1893, or the receipts of t':. of fice, was $8,016.88, an increase of $2,000 over 1892. One hundred and two cars of stock were shipped, 164 cars of grain and one of miscellaneous freight. Forty-four cur., of lumber, eight of coal and twftity of sto-ic and miscellaneous freight came in for the year 5893, which is by all acknowledged as rather an off year for Nebraska.—Stamford Enter prise. Fireman Newkirk run a nail in his hand, Sunday, with painful results. The Burlington is now running ten trains daily in and out of Leavenworth. The Burlington-Rock Island bridge over the Missouri at Leavenworth was formally opened for traffic on January 2d, 1894. C. C. Winger, late of the dispatcher’s office at McCook, now fills the position of d a y operator at the depot.—Red Cloud Argus. John Heber’s hand and a hot bolt had a slight misunderstanding, the other day, and John has been carrying that member embalm ed in cooling lotions since. Monday’s special from Hastings did not run east, but the cars were divided up between Nos. 2, 4 and 80, giving the people a variety of opportunities to return home. The B. & M. folks have discovered late1 that people along the St. Francis and Puebw line are running short of kindling wood, and so the railroad is driving another set of pegs along the unfinished line of road. “Stick, stuck” now rings out on the prairie as a sig nal to come and get a supply of kindlings. Don’t roast the B. & M. as long as the pegs hold out.—Beaver City Tribune. Last Friday’s east bound train ran an hour ahead of schedule time. It is understood that the occasion for this unprecedented burst of speed was owing to the fact that the B. & M. tax payer was aboard and that for some reason he wished to reach Oberlin in double quick time. The B. & M. folks and the offi cials of the northwest Kansas counties are having some dispute regarding the payment of taxes. It is said that trains on this branch leave all cars, except the baggage car, at the last station in Nebraska, crossing the Kansas line with nothing that is subject to attach ment. The B. & M. has always been prompt in payment of taxes in this county, and while we do not know the cause of the present diffi culty, we presume that it is due a Kansas freak, for which the state is becoming so not ed.—Beaver City Tribune. THE HIGHEST AWARD. Royal Baking Powder has all the Honors-In Strength and Value 20 Per Cent. Above its Nearest Competitor. The Royal Baking Powder has the e n viable record of having received the highest award for articles of its class—g r e a t e s t strength, purest ingredients, most perfectly combined—wherever exhibited in competition with others. In the exhibitions of former years, at the Centennial, at Paris, Vienna and at the various State and Industrial fairs where it has been exhibited, judges have invariably awarded the Royal Baking Powder the high I est honors. j At the recent World's fair the examinations ! for the baking powder awards, were made by the experts of the chemical division of the Agricultural Department at Washington, The official report of the tests of the baking powders which were made by this department for the specific purpose of ascertaining which was the best, and which has been made pub lic, shows the leavening strength of the Royal to be 160 cubic inches of carbonic gas per ounce of powder. Of the cream of tartar bak ing powders exhibited at the fair, the next highest in strength thus tested contained but 133 cubic inches of leavening gas. The other powders gave an average of III. The Royal, therefore, was found of 30 per cent, greater leavening strength than its nearest competitor, and 44 per cent, above the average of all the other tests. Its superiority in other respects, however, in the quality of the food it makes as to fineness, delicacy and wholesomeness, could not be measured by figuies. It is these high qualities, known and appre ciated by the women of the country for so many years, that have caused the sales of the Royal Baking Powder, as shown by statistics, to exceed the sales of all other baking powders combined. Col. Lusk was a Minden visitor first of the week._ Mrs. Burkett is visiting her sister Mrs. J. \V. Dolan, of Indianola. W. H. Davis is officing with P. A. Wells over the Citizens bank. Regular services by Rev. McBride in Luth eran church, Sunday morning and evening. Perry Stone has just completed the job of putting up sixty-five tons of ice for his own use. _ Mrs. J. A. Rice and Master Delbert of Wau neta. are the guests of her sister, Mrs. J. A. Elwood. The water was drawn from the standpipe, Wednesday, to make some slight repairs and improvements thereon. The police arrested several young tramps, Sunday, and after relieving them of quite an arsenal, set them at liberty. A. E. Baker, who has been absent from the state for some months, returned to the city a few days ago, from New York. 1 hat solid old banking house, the Citizens Bank of McCook, now sports a surplus capi tal of gio,ooo, or a total capital of goo.ooo. There is a strong demand by would-be renters for farms. One real estate man says he has ten calls for every place he has for rent. However, after the first of March there will be plenty of farms to rent. The protracted meetings at Mt. Zion closed on Wednesday evening. The Baptist brethren expect to organize a church in that neighbor, hood, Sunday a week, with a membership of between twenty and twenty-five. To the friends and neighbors who so kindly came to our assistance, during the death and burial of our little one, we extend sincere and heartfelt thanks. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Elwood.
