The newest thing in railroading takes
the form of bedroom sleeping cars of
great magnificence but of uncertain
promise that one company now runs be
tween Xew York and Chicago on the
fastest flyers, says the Sun. The bed
rooms are comparatively large, and each
one contains an upper and a lower
berth, a washstand with running water,
and the main appurtenances of the re
tiring room that are found in the cars of
the older style. The beds are bigger—
that is wider—than the old sleepers, and
if two friends or a married couple se
cure one of these rooms they are certain
to enjoy a better night's rest and more
comfort generally than ever came to
them in the old-style open-saloon sleep
Women can undress in their rooms
with the doors shut without fear of in
trusion, and with plenty of room for
the operation, and so can men. Once in
bed there is no danger of anyone’s fall
ing in upon the sleeper as a curve is
turned and some luckless pedestrian is
flung through the curtains. Each room
can be ventilated as desired, and the
snores and baby's cries and bedroom
odors of the old-style cars are all shut
out of these private rooms.
Engineer John P. Finch of the Bur
lington & Missouri railroad was instant
ly killed, Sunday, by falling from his
train. Late in the afternoon a coal train
of 35 cars, with two locomotives, was
coming from Erie into Denver. Just
outside the Twenty-third street viaduct
the train struck a down grade and came
down at a rapid rate toward the Platte
river bridge. Finch, who was in charge
of the first engine, lost control of the
train, the air brakes failing to work.
The engineer thought a catastrophe im
minent, and turning to Fireman Whit
sel. advised him to jump. He then
passed out on the gangway between the
engine and tender. Just at that moment
the train struck a sharp curve, and Finch
was whirled from the engine to the side
of the track, striking the stone ballast on
his head. Section hands picked him
up, but life was extinct. Eireman Whit
sel succeeded in stopping the train with
out further accident. The dead man
was 40 years old, and had been in the
employ of the road for seven years. He
lived at 2517 Curtis Street, and had a
wife and one child.—Denver Sun.
Mr. W. F. Comly and Miss Anna S.

Scott performed the ceremony, after
which the guests were seated to an
elegant wedding supper. The bride
has for several years been principal of
the east ward school and is very popular,
having a wide circle of friends and ac
quaintances. The groom is a well
known mail agent on the B. & M., run

happy couple left at 9 o’clock the same
