A new ballast plow was sent from
McCook to Sheridan, this week, to be
used out on the front. . The boys say
that the McCook engineers think it
rather hard to have to go through an
examination on train rules and train or
ders before pulling trains on main line.
The boarding house keepers are kicking
on the boys for burning so much oil
nights, but the boys must read up their
little black-covered books..... A man
whose name is supposed to be John Sailer
of Culbertson, Nebraska, was killed,
Sunday morning, the 10th, a mile west
of Ardmore by train 4S, engine 295,
Conductor C.outant, Engineer Nolan.
The supposition is that he and two other
men stole a hand car and were run into
by the train. He had on his person a
cheap gold-filled watch and chain, three
door keys, five skeleton keys, one store
door key, one pair hair clippers, one
jacknife; one grip key, pocket book con
taining 11 cents, and two razors. The
remains were turned over to Constable
Anderson of Fall River county, and
buried at the expense of the county.—
According to a recent article in the
Railroad Gazette, the steam city rail
roads of London earn only $73,000 a
mile per annum. It appears the New
York railroads carry a far larger number
of passengers and run quicker and make
more stops than the London roads. In
New York it takes from 12 to 15 seconds
ior the people to get into and out of the
cars, but in London it takes about 30
seconds, although the cars in London
have side doors, which are supposed to
afford greater facilities for the ingress
and outgo for passengers. The Gazette
says that the superior speed on the New
York roads is largely a matter of smarter
working. An underground road ought to
be able to make greater speed, for it can
use heavy engines and so get up to the
maximum speed quicker; but, on the
other hand, it is questionable if what
they gain in this way is not lost in the
greater caution needed in working heavy
trains and working them in tunnels.
These elements necessitate absolute
blocking; but, on the elevated railroads
of New York, worked in what is almost
always a clear atmosphere and with but
few obstructions to a long sight ahead,
the trains can be run safely at a consid
erable speed without block signals. One
train can run right up to the tail of an
other and thus take advantage of every

Mr. Benedict, the assistant hostler in
the Oxford railway yards, went to Mc
Cook, Thursday evening, to accept a
position as fireman. Mr. Benedict has
grown quite popular while here and his
friends regret to learn of his departure.
Charles Bloom has been promoted to the
position he vacated.For the first
time since the organization of the rail
way postal service in 1858, congress has
re-classified the salaries of postal clerks.
The measure became a law last Saturday
and is said to largely increase the com
pensation of these faithful servants of
Uncle Sam. The postal clerks of this
city are felicitating themselves that they
will hereafter draw from $15 to $20 more
per month than formerly’. . Accom
panied by Mrs. T. and children, W. S.
Tomlinson left for McCook, Monday
evening, to assume his new duties as
passenger brakeman between Denver
and Hastings. A residence of nearly
five years here has gained for his family
many friends who will deeply regret
their departure and as earnestly wish for
their subsequent return to our city-.
Mr. Tomlinson still retains his propertv
interests here.—Oxford Standard.
The national convention of the railway
yardmasters began at Peoria, 111., last
Tuesday morning. Among the reports
was one by D. A. Shaw of Indianapolis,
on car couplers. Mr. Shaw was deputy’
third auditor during President Harrison's
administration and was instrumental in
securing the passage of a bill by congress
requiring air brakes and automatic self
couplers to be put on all freight cars.
It now transpires that there is too great
a variety of self couplers, there being
twenty-eight kinds, and the next con
gress will be asked to amend the bill so
as to make them uniform.
