'Will Increase the Shops.
'One of the happiest items of news that
lias come to the McCook ear in many
of the Bur-
3tioons is the announcement -
ilington company that the shops at Mc-
KHook will shortly be greatly enlarged.
"The company recently determined to in
crease the shops here until they can do
: all the repair work except the general
-rebuilding of a locomotive , which work
will be exclusively done at Havelock.
"The machinery at this point will be
-largely-increased : wheel mounting machinery -
chinery will be added , a wheel press ,
ixle lathe , boring mill , and other exten
sive machinery. To house this machin
ery and to relieve the already overcrowded -
crowded shops , additional room will
have to be made , and it is about decided
to build a separate building just east of
the great round house , to which it will
* > e connected by an arch-way. The blue
prints for the contemplated building are
already at headquarters. A building 80
X 200 feet is contemplated , in which all
the machinery will be placed.
A brick smoke-stack will be erected ,
a separate boiler-room made , and all the
boilers consolidated for heating and
power purposes in this one room.
It is contemplated that all engine , all
car , and all wheel work for this division
will be done at McCook , after the im
provements are completed ; and this ad-
dilion will bring quite an increase in the
number of men to be employed at this
This is one of the most important
inoves made by the Burlington for Me-
Cook in many years , and we understand
that a similar plant will be added to the
. -Alliance shops for the same purpose.

A Handsome Little Temple.
Tuesday was truly a'red letter day1
for che Catholics of Cambridge and vi
cinity , marking as it did the consuintna
tion of their generous and pious effort
toward erecting at that place a house o
divine worship , in the formal and solemi
dedication of ihe Saint John the Baptis
Catholic church of that place , one o
the handsomest and best appoihtet
little churches in the state of Nebraska
in building and furnishing whicl
about eight thousand dollars have beei
spent. The building and furnishing
throughout are a charming and endur
ing monument to the energy and devo
tion of the pastor of that mission , Rev
Bernard Sproll of Indianola , and to tin
generosity and self-denial of the little
but open-hearted , flock under his minis
trations. Notwithstanding the fact tha
there are but thirty-five families repre
sented in that church , they have erectec
a church which will for years challeng <
the admiration of the people of this par
of the state. It may be added in this
connection , too , that the Catholics o
that parish have made cheerful recogni
tion of the generous gifts of non-Catho
lies in the building of their splendic

The dedicatory services commenced at
half past ten o'clock in the morning
with all the above-mentioned clergy as
sisting the Right Reverend Bishop in the
impressive and solemn ceremonies of the

by the immense congregation that o.er-

ed , and then followed the solemn liigh
mass and dedication of the beautiful in
terior and appointments , with all the
pomp and circumstances and solemn
: erernonial of the Catholic church.

On next Sunday , Rev. W. F. Vogt will

ful the congregation has not only been
largely increased in numbers and effect

church property has been materially im
proved , and the work altogether put in
fine condition , materially and spiritually.
