THE MID-WINTER EXPOSITION.
The low rates to California now offered by
the Burlington Route, constitute an unequaled
opportunity of visiting that land of sunshine,
fruit and flowers. On account of the Mid
Winter Exposition—California’s World Fair
—agents are now selling round trip tickts to
San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Bernardino,
San Diego, etc., for $65.50. Tickets are good
to return until April 301I1, 1894, and are very
liberal as regards stop overs and transit lines.
Wide choice of routes going and returning.
This is the year of years to visit California,
and the Burlington is the route of routes to
get there. Ask your nearest ticket agent for
full information, or write to J. Francis, Gen
eral Passenger and Ticket Agent, Omaha.

The telegraph service of the eastern portion

for a short while, by the snow storm of the
close of last week.
E. P. Bolton of the B. & M. eating house
was in Omaha, this week, conferring with offi
cials of the road to see if he could not induce
them to stop trains here for meals.—RedCloud
Lineman Brown has been busy, this week,
fixing up the telegraph lines between here and
Cambridge. A number of poles were broken
by the weight of the snow, which also broke
the wires in various places besides damaging
the glasses and otherwise knocking the service
out of kelter. He has been assisted by I. M.
Douglas of this place and the division line
man from Akron.
James Durham, formerly of this city, was
renewing old acquaintances in town, last Sat
urday. Jim is now making his headquarters
at McCook, where he is in the employ of the
Burlington.The Burlington has made the
rate just one-half the regular price on ship
ments of com from any part of Nebraska to
all stations from Benkelman to Akron inclus
ive. This is done in order to help the farmer
procure feed for his horses during the spring
work. The cut rate is for the month of Feb
ruary only.—Benkelman News.
Every railroad of the west is beset by freight
car thieves whose pilfering costs the roads
many thousands of dollars. For years railroad
managers have sought to stop such robberies,
with indifferent success. Their attention has
been directed to providing means of locating
the road or division upon which a theft may
have been committed. A road receiving a
through car that has been tampered with must
stand the loss in case it cannot be shown that
the seal was broken prior to the receipt of the
car. The perplexing problem is to get a seal
that cannot be broken and replaced by the
thieves in a manner that will defy detection.
An Omaha inventor has, in the opinion of
experts, produced a seal that will baffle the
most ingenius thief. Its adoption will save
the road using it many thousands of dollars
ine best engineman nas been a fireman;
the best conductors are made of brakemen;
the best officials are promoted from the ranks.
John \I. Toucey, general manager of the New
York Central, was once a trainman. Presi
dent Newell of the Lake Shore, used to carry
a chain in an engineering corps on the Illinois
Central. President Clark of the Mobile &
Ohio, was a section man; afterward a fireman.
Another man who drove grade stakes is Pres
ident Blockstand of the Alton. Allen Manvel,
the late president of “the largest road on
earth,” was a storehouse clerk. President
Van Horn of the Canadian Pacific, kept time
on the Illinois Central. A man named Towm.
who used to tudst brake wheels on the Bur
lington, is nowr Vice President Town of the
Southern Pacific. President Smith of the
Louisville & Nashville, was a telegraph oper
ator. Marvin Hewitt of the Chicago & North
western, began as a telegraph messenger boy.
President Clark of the Union Pacific, used to
check freight and push a truck on the Omaha
platform. The Illinois Central, I believe, has
turned out more great men than any other
road. President Jeffrey of the Denver & Rio
Grande, began in the Central shops at 45 cents
a day.—McClure’s Magazine.

Supt. Bayston and Prof. Parsons of the
Bartley schools visited our public schools,
yesterday. The Bartley schools are closed on
account of an epidemic of measles which pre
vails in that place. About 70 children are
down with the disease, which is fortunately of
a very mild form.
Jake Williamson, a farmer in Lutz precinct,
is building an immense reservoir for storing
water for irrigation purposes. The reservoir
will be supplied with water pumped from a
well by a large Airmoter. In this way Mr.
Williamson estimates he can irrigate at least
twenty acres of crop. His plan will be to thor
oughly saturate the ground in the fall and
spring, thus putting it in such condition that
crops will Ire able to flourish upon it through
the dry part of the season. There are a number
of Dundy county farmers figuring on adopting
the same kind of irrigaton scheme.—Bee.
