Two Trains Taken Off.
After next Sunday Burlington trains
Nos. 4 and n will run no farther west
than Lincoln. The new time card will
go into effect on that date. No. 6 ,
which now arrives from the west at 12:55
a. m. wtll arrive under the new schedule
at 4:55 , and No. 5 for the west will
leave at 10:30 : instead of 10:45. : Several
slight changes in the running time of
freight trains have been made to make
meeting points better , but nothing has
been changed far enough outside of the
two trains noted to merit mention.
The retention in the service of train
No. 12 , and the abandonment of No. 4
was a surprise to . many railroaders
Hereafter No. 4 will start from Lincoln
leaving at 4 p. m. for the east. The
taking off of this train west of Lincoln
will make it necessary for Nos. 2 and 6
to do more local work , and they wil
stop at Harvard , Stilton , Fairmont , Ex
eter and Crete. No. 6 will continue to
be a very fast train , and will make its
former time east of Omaha. Journal.

by all old employes of the Western di
vision , where he worked for a number oi
years ? although in such poor health that
he was finally compelled to retire from
the service , last spring , and go east , ex
pecting to go south from there. The
probabilities are that his condition wa
so grave that he decided to meet the end
Many friends of the deceased and Mrs.
Robie will drop the tear of sorrow and

Attention is directed to the county
treasurer's announcement elsewhere in
this issue. The treasurer proposes to
collect the delinquent personal taxes of
this county and all interested parties will
do well to give this matter their early
attention. The too high taxes of this
county can be considerably reduced by
the collection of the delinquent personal
taxes , which will be collected without
favor by distress warrant after the Janu
ary settlement. All should bear the bur
den of taxation and not only those who
always pay and pay promptly. The
treasurer promises to equalize the burden
ay distress warrant collection , if that
extreme course becomes necessary. And
t is right that he should.
