Conductor Coy was up from Holdrege, Monday, on business at division head quarters. Engine 36 with a broken driver is down from the high line for an over hauling. Mrs. Forbes is much better, and, the baby is improving, it is a great pleasure to note. It is pretty hard to keep house prop erly without The McCook Tribune. Don’t try. Mulhall says that the life of a locomo tive is usually fifteen years, and its earn ings $300,000. Joseph Dick has gone to Red Cloud to take the position of switchman in the company’s yard there. Quite a change in ticket punches has taken place on the high line in the last week.—Curtis Courier. Will Archibald is confined to the bed with an attack of malarial fever, and has been quite ill for a few days. Mesdames L. C. Wolff and Joseph McMenigal went down to Lincoln, yes terday, to visit a few days with relatives and friends. Roadmaster Haley is laying heavier steel between here and Bartley. They are putting down 76 pound steel in place of the old 60 pound. Night Foreman Henry Culbertson has had a severe tussle with the measles; but is now better. Harry Kingsbury acted in that capacity during his illness. Dispatcher lownsend expects to have his electric circuit for power in operation within a few weeks. A number of peo ple have already applied for power. Mrs. Catherine Earner was called to McCook, Sunday, on account of the ill ness of the child of her daughter, Mrs. Harry Conover.—Red Cloud Argus. Mrs. George Conner of McCook is vis iting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Roy. She will visit in Kansas City be fore her return—Falls City Journal. Business is looking up. Freight trains 63 and 80 have both been run through a number of times lately. Steel from Pueblo for the company’s northern ex tension is one of the items *>f increase in the volume of business. John Phillips, a fireman of the Phila delphia & Reading railroad at Tama rend received his pay April nth, about $80, says the Philadelphia Record. As he mounted the engine with the money in his hand the whole amount, which was in paper, was pulled irom his grasp into the fire box by the draught and burned. The contract to build the Stratton school house has been awarded to Mc Adams & Rooney, Messrs- O’Niel & Kilpatrick having thrown up their inter est in the matter on account of some thing in the contract that they would not sign. Mr. Rooney has been up there, this week, arranging for the burn ing of brick for the structure, frank Quigley took his wife and her mother out for a buggy ride Sunday. The horse became frightened and Mrs. Cummings was thrown out and suffered a badly sprained elbow. Frank and his wife “stuck to the engine” and the horse was stopped without further mishap. The item clipped from the McCook paper some time since to the effect that Frank Quigley had resigned his place on the road, said Quigley by a mistake of the McCook compositor. It should have read Riglev.—Red Cloud Belt. The completion of the Burlington’s northwestern line to a connection with the Northern Pacific at Billings is ex pected to result in a marked increase in the smelting business of the Black Hills. Ores needed for mixing with the pro ducts of the hill mines can then be brought in from the far west to good advantage, and in a few years the largest smelting center in the northwest can be built up in the Deadwood district. The Black Hills region has a great future before it, and the depression of the pres ent will soon give way to a period of unprecedented activity.-Lincoln Journal. The Burlington railroad has announced two special homeseekers’ excursions from all points on their system east of the Missouri to all stations west of that river. A round trip rate of one fare has been made, with liberal stop-over privil eges and a limit of twenty days. These tickets may be purchased on May 8th and 28th. They will afford a fine oppor tunity for people in the east to pay a visit to Nebraska. The time, it will be , observed, could not be better for giving the visitors a favorable impression of the state. Nebraskans may find it de sirable to bring these excursions to the attention of their friends and relatives east of the Missouri. A round trip for one fare, and the privilege of remaining in the state twenty days, ought to encour age many visits from eastern people. Notice from the Postoffice Depart, ment. The following notice to postmasters has been 'published by the order of the post master general concerning the trans mitting of letters and circulars by per sons operating what is generally called “green goods or sawdust swindle.” Cau tion cards, suitable for display in post office lobbies will be furnished to all postmasters in the course of the next few weeks, with instructions to display them conspicuously in those portions of the postoffice frequented by the public: “Postoffice Department, Wash ington, D. C., March 21, 1894.—The attention of persons is called to the fact that the laws prescribing penalties for using the United States mails for the conveyance or transmittal of letters and circulars concerning swindling and fraud ulent schemes is being violated by per sons operating what is called “the green goods or sawdust swindle.” “These swindlers pretend to sell coun feit money and call their goods “cigars,” “green articles,” “green goods,” “busi ness that is not legitimate,” etc. One set of these swindlers, located in Jersey City, N. J., mailed their circulars at that point, while others were sent to be post ed at New York, Chicago, Toledo, O., Detroit, Mich., and different cities. To avoid detection, they request that replies be sent by telegraph to fictitious ad dresses.” “A contemplated robbery, pure and simple, and in every possible instance plunder their object. Therefore, all per sons who receive circulars in which are contained offers to sell counterfeit mon ey, green goods, cigars, etc., will know that there is an attempt being made to deceive and plunder them.” “To further the ends of justice, persons receiving such circulars through the mails are requested to hand the same to the postmaster, who is directed to trans mit them forthwith to the chief post office inspector at Washington, D. C.” “By order of the Postmaster General.” A Great Big Cut. Owing to the hard times nearly every commodity has been lessened in price. The Nebraska State Journal, which has forged to the front as the best paper in the state, realizes that the public is en titled to cheaper state papers, and there fore reduces its prices from fio.oo to $7.50 per year, including the Sunday issue, or $6.00 per year for six days in the week. There will be no reduction in quality but the increased circulation even at the lower price will permit of larger expend itures for telegraphic news, etc. The Journal is for Nebraska first, last, and all the time, and every effort is put forth to build up state industries. Published at the state capital it is of particular in terest to Nebraskans. Its Washington bureau is in charge of W. A. Annin, who is thoroughly acquainted with Nebraska interests at the national capital. Dur ing the approaching campaign, and dur ing the coming legislature, the Journal will be pre-eminently the newspaper of Nebraska. Try it awhile: 65 cents per month for seven days in the week; 50 cents per month except Sunday. Address Nebraska State Journal Lincoln, Neb. SPARKS FROM THE RAILS. Assistant Supt.

Positive Evidence confronts us in which the net re sult of vaunted and much advertised bar gains is simply a scale of prices the same as ourselves and other dealers charge regular. The remedy for this humbug is with I the retail business. Dry Goods, Millinery AND CARPETS. DRESSMAKING, Everything the best qualities at the lowest possible living prices. L. Lowman & Son.
