A Brave Engineer.
Engineer P. Sweeney of the Burling
ton west • bound passenger train saved
the lives of two children, last night, by
possessing strong nerves and a quick
eye. The train was running at the rate
of thirty-five miles an hour, and when
it rounded the curve at twenty-seventh
street Engineer Sweeney saw two small
children playing on the track. He in
stantly slapped on the airbrakes and re
versed the engine and succeeded in
stopping the train when the pilot of the
locomotive just touched the little ones.
The children looked up from their play
and laughed at the big engine, while the
engineer climbed down and taking them
in his arms carried them to their
mother, who came running down from a
nearby house.—Omaha Cor. Journal.
Holdrege, Neb., May 15.—[Special.]
—As freight train No. 77 came into the
yards at this place, yesterday, the en
gineer applied the brakes and came to a
sudden stop. A. D. McNeer of Hast
ings, who travels for the Lininer &
Metcalf company of Omaha, and who
was in the caboose, was thrown to the
floor. In his fall he struck on a large
spittoon on his side and back. He was
taken to the Hampton house, where he
is receiving attention. While the injury
is not serious, he will be laid up for
some time.—Lincoln Journal.
The state board of equalization raised
the valuation of the St. Francis branch
of the B. & M. $500 per mile over last
year.A short time ago, for an inter
val of a few hours, there was not a B. &
M. train moving in one direction or
the other between McCook and Denver.
It is said the like conditions had never
existed before, and are not likely to
again.—Beaver City Tribune.
Station Agent Conover hung up the
red lights at the depot, the other day,
and announced that it was dangerous
to fool with “dad.” Upon investigation
it was learned that the cause of his
strange conduct emanated from the fact
that his heart was filled to “statiety” on
account of a little girl that his wife pre
sented to him this week.—Red Cloud
The Burlington is preparing to run its
Omaha-Chicago trains with oil for fuel.
These engines are' now being fitted up
in the Aurora shops with apparatus.
The engines will be completed in a few
weeks and an experiment will be made
with oil for fuel. The officials are en
thusiastic and are confident that the ex
periment will be a success.
Monday the new time card goes into
effect. The effect on the branch is, or
will be “great.” We are to have a
passenger, a “flyer,” to connect with
the main line at Republican City and
Hastings. Our train will be a through
train to Hastings. Good for the B. &
M.—Oberlin Opinion.
The Rock Island railroad officials will
send Jewell, the rainmaker, into western
Kansas again, this year, to experiment
with his rain-producing apparatus and
materials. They are satisfied that he
was measurably successful, last season,
and he will be better equipped this year.
The state board of equalization have
finished their work. They report an
increase of mileage of only seven and
a half miles over 1892. The valuation of
Nebraska roads is decreased $121.54 per
mile. But the average reduction on the
Burlington was $250.00 per mile.
Mrs. Thomas Crabtree was severely
bitten on the right arm, about ten days

Jnst now when armies of unemployed
men are congregated in and aronnd
Washington, and when hundreds are
making their way thither, the article of
Harry E. Kelley entitled “A Precursor
of Anarchy,” which appears in the
Chicago Magazine for May, will receive
more than passing attention. The writer
ably sets forth the weakness ol our
present government, showing that they
inhere not in our constitution or in our
system of government, but in the repre
sentatives that are sent to Washington
and to our state capitals to legislate in
the interests of the people, but who
with few exceptions devote ther energies
to schemes of self-aggrandizement, politi
cal intrigue and the advancement of the
interests of private enterprises. The
arraignment is a severe but wholly just
one. 15 cents per copy; $1.50 per year.
