1 Important , if True.
The following news , from Oxford , sent
to the Lincoln Journal , is important , if
true :
'Oxford , Neb. , March iS. ( Special. )
From recent developments in railway
circles it is confidently believed that
avithin the next thirt3' days Oxford will
"be launched upon an old time westem
boom. Orders have been given by the
Burlington for the removal of the Red
Cloud round-house to this place and for
tlie enlargement of the local rouud-
"house to a capacity of twenty stalls. It
is also understood that the passenger
division for the main line will be trans
ferred here from McCook. These changes
would add tremendously to the already
large railway force and probably double
ihe population within twelve months
'The excitement caused by the proposec
improvements has greatly slimulatec
realty sales and advanced pricee nearl
JCOQ per cent.
There is no longer any doubt , it is be
lieved , that the much talked of nev
track to Mascot will be built , thereby
shortening the distance between tha
place and Oxford two miles.

about this decision.
