No , 76 went out as a double header ,
Dave Magner bought Mrs. S. C. Reed's
residence on north Manchester street ,
this week. This is the third sale Sylvester -
ter Cordeal has made within thepast two
monthswhich shows that there is some
demanci for property in McCook , though
prices are prevailingly low.
Railroad circles were slightly stirred ,
this week , by a report that the railroad
division was to be moved to McCook ,
which of course would necessitate the
removal of quite a numberof men. The
story , however , sounds exceedingly fishy
and is generally discredited.-Oxford
Claim Agent Hanson , of the Burlington -
ton , spent several days in Oxford the
past week , investigating the shortage in
the car shipments to this place. It appears -
pears to be no uncommon thing for a carte
to be a few tons "shy , " whether from
shrinkage in the peculiar brand of coal
or the result of a leak in the car is not
known. The matter , it is claimed , will
be made the subject of further investigation -
gation in the near future. . . . Hereafter
the Burlington folks propose to guard
their coal shipments as zealously as
though they represented so much gold
ore , Claim Agent Hanson went down
to Red Clould Tuesday.to prosecute some
parties charged with replenishing their
coal bins from the company's cars.-Ox-
On the Chicago , Burlington St Quincy ,
the other day , between Galesburg and
Mendota , eighty miles , was made the
fastest time ever recorded on that system -
tem , beating even the mile-a-minute
record between the same points several
months ago. The run was made by
the Texas flyer , with four cars ,
which left Galesburg at 12:04 : at noon ,
and arrived at the station at I:32/ .
Frank Bullard was engineer , W. L.
Main , fireman , and Scott Dewey , con-
ductor. The run was a steady one , the
speed being uniformly maintained the
whole distance. Four stops were made ,
averaging two minutes each time , for
the eighty miles , seventy-one and one-
half minutes. The engine was the 512 ,
a class H , high-pressure engine , and of
the same type as the No. 6r4 , which
made the previous fast run of a mile a
minute , the same distance , Journal.
Al. O'Neil is expected back in a few
days from his extended visit in Chicago

. .Billy Mitchell of McCook is doing
the round house work for Jack Neff ,
while the latter is absent in the eastern
part of the state , whither he was called
by the illness of a brother. . . .Train No.
142 on the Hastings and Oberlin , ran into -
to a North Western stock train just south
of Hastings , Wednesday afternoon. The
Burlington engine was badly disabled
and a car of stock was thrown from the
track. The damage is quite expensive
but no lives were lost or train men hurt.
Somebody will probably have an early
invitation to go to McCook. . . . , Is 1T so ?
The rumor comes to us from what is
said to be hign official authority that the
B. & 1I , have purchased the K. C. & 0.
R. R. which was sold under foreclosure
proceedings , last Saturday. In connection -
tion therewith it is also given from the
same source that the company intends
building a cut-off in the spring form
Everson's switch down Methodist Creek
and into this city , where their new line
would then connect with the Oberlin
line. If this is done it will follow shortly -
ly that this city will be a division point
of considerable importance. The brick
round house at Red Cloud is to be torn
down and rebuilt at this place and all
trains tivill be made up here for the east ,
west , north and south. The report pub ,
lished elsewhere in this issue , of an intention -
tention on the part of the company to
abandon Oxford points strongly to this
place as the coming railroad town and
is confirmatory of all that is said in this
article. : Harlan County Democrat.

LA GRIPPE REMAINS
For Years In the System
If Not Cured.
This country contains a large multitude -
tude of men and women who are debilitated -
itated and weak as the effect ofla grippe.
If every one would do as the Reverend
Pett ' of Virginia did , thisvast multitude
of sufferers would , soon be well and
strong again. He writes :
Last winter I had a very bad case of la
grippe which left me enfeebled and liable -
ble to cold at the slightest exposure. I
tried a number of remedies , but they afforded -
forded only temporary relief. I saw an
advertisment of Pe-ru nia and concluded
to try it. I have been using it for two
months , and it has afforded me much
relief. It is indeed a panacea to me. It
has invigorated me more than anything
I ever tried. Ihave recommended it to
others and advised therii to send for your
pamphlets. I have written of it to distant -
tant friends. You can use this statement -
ment in any way you choose.
REV. H. PETTY , Baptist , Dry Fork , Va.

tude of witnesses write to The Pe-ru-na

also a sure cure for catarrh , cough , colds ,

and all climatic diseases of winner.
