Monday morning. Charley Ball, assist
ant yardmaster in this city, while un
loading two barrels of gasoline came
very near losing his life. The gasoline
barrels leaked and in throwing one of
of them over gasoline was thrown into
his lantern. In an instant the interior
of the freight car was entirely enveloped
in fiames, but fortunately the barrels
did not explode. Agent Stokes, at the
risk of his life, cut the car from the train
and the Akron fire department promptly
suppressed the fire.—Akron Special to
Rocky Mountain News.
The Harlan County Democrat endeav
ors to say a good word for the B. & M. in
its last issue, detailing some of the good
things this corporation has done for the
welfare of this country. Judging from
the past we believe the company will see
that it is to their interest to allow reduc
tions the coming winter in their freight
charges on supplies of provisions and
feed for stock. They will soon get all
their money back and more too by so
doing. Even if railroad corporations
are not noted for charity they can be re
lied on to do everything to keep any
country through which their lines pass
from going back, and to assist in its de
velopment.—Stamford Enterprise.
A man named Green came in from
Alma on freight train No. 64, and being
ticketed for Hastings was told by the
trainmen that he would have to lay over
and wait for the Hastings train. After
some switching had been done No. 64
pulled cut for Wymore and the man
boarded it. He was put off at Guide Rock
and retraced his steps. While crossing
a bridge near Amboy he was struck by
freight train No. 65. He was rolled un
der the pilot and by catching hold of the
brake rods saved himself from going un
der the wheels. Both legs were broken
and his skull was fractured. He was
brought back to this city. His injuries
will most likely prove fatal.—Red Cloud
Special in Friday’s Journal.
In finally declaring the great railway
strike off the American Railway Union
is doing what it ought to have done sev
eral weeks ago. when the backbone of
the strike was broken. Prolonging it
after it become hopeless merely kept
a large number of workingmen loyal to
the union from returning to work and
earning their own living. Many of them
by this time have lost their positions
altogether, to say nothing of the loss of
wages the might have received were they
not idle. This has been a useless and
senseless hardship imposed upon them.
The strike has been off for weeks, not
withstanding the fact that it had not
been officially declared off. For this
reason the tardy official declaration can
have but little or no appreciable effect.

The executive committee of the Red
Willow County Agricultural society has
concluded to hold the annual fair this
year regardless of the dry weather. The
dates are September 4, 5, 6 and 7. While
the season has been very discouraging,
yet Red Willow county has enough re
sources to hold a splendid exhibition.
Let those who irrigate by either the
Meeker, Holland or any other ditch,
give us an object lesson of what irriga
tion will do, and there are quite a num
ber who have irrigated small patches by
the use of windmills, such we especially
desire to make an exhibit, because we
believe that windmill irrigation will yet
be the partial redemption of the west.
Let everyone bring something to the
fair. If you have not the best bring the
next best, and perhaps you will have the
best after all. We had an excellent fair
in 1S90, and there is no reason why we
should not have a better one in 1S94. ;
Secure a premium list and examine it
closely and you will find some premium i
for which you can compete. In the '
back part of the premium list is a blank j
on which you can make a complete list
of your entries at home; fill this out and
either bring or send it to the secretary, j
and your tags will be filled out and thus
save you the trouble and worry of attend- 1
ing to it the first day of the fair.
Please remember the dates, September
4th to 7th. and be sure to come and see j
for yourself what a grand fair Red Wil
low county can have even if it does not
rain. J. H. Berge,
