We copy the following from the Atwood - wood , Kansas , Republican-Citizen of February 230 ! : "DIED At his home in Richland township , Tuesday , February 20th , 1900 , of pneumonia James B. Runyon , after an illness of but four days. James B. Runyon was born 45 years ago , the 7th of last mouth , in Butler county , Pennsyl vania , where his boyhood days were spent. In 1868 he moved with his par ents to Polk county , Iowa , where they resided until 1872 , when they moved to York county , Nebraska , where February I5th , 1880 , he was united in marriage to Martha Phillips , who. with seven chil dren three boys and four girls are left to mourn the loss of a kind father and model husband. In the spring of 1894 , Mr. Runyon moved his family to Raw lins county to the farm on which they now reside in Richland township. Dur ing their six years residence among us Jim has gained the reputation of being a square , upright , honorable man , always extending the glad hand of fellowship to his neighbors in time of need. He pro vided well for his family and was a firm believer in protection to his loved ones as was shown by him being a member of Oberlin camp , M. W. A. , and of Utica lodge , A. O. U. W. , of Utica , Neb. , and a member of Utica lodge , A. F. and A. M. "In the fall of 1899 he was the Repub lican nominee for sheriff of Rawlins county. The funeral services were held at the family residence , Wednesday , and were conducted by Rev. Vogt of the Congregational church of Herndon and were largely attended. The remains were taken to McCook for interment , February 22d. The bereaved have the sympathy of all who know them. " Additions to Shadeland. W. N. Rogers of Shadeland stock farm recently arrived home from making pur chases of "White-Faces" in Kansas City , Mo. , and Sutherland , Iowa. At Kansas City he bought two cows with their calves which cost him $1,005. One cow , Horatia by Corrector , cost him $600 ; the bull calf being by the famous $5,000 Sir Bredwell. The other cow , Lily2d , is by Great Autocrat ; the heifer calf by Wild Tom. At Sutherland , Iowa , he bought a bunch of five , four cows and one bull ; and all of them , Mr. Rogers assures us , will be excellent .additions to the Shade- land stock farm. Dave Risk , the expert animal sketcher of Weston , Mo. , spent Tuesday on the farm sketching and photographing. One of the sketches made is of the great Anxiety Monarch , head of the Shade- land herd. Mr. Risk considers this one of the greatest animals he has ever seen , and he promises a masterpiece when his sketch is completed. The Black Crook. At the opera house , last night , Rea- dick's Black Crook , Jr. , opened to a large audience. Space forbids us from saying more than that the scenery was grand , the cast superb , the girls young and pretty , the comedians up to date and the music charming. As scene after scene was raised the applause was deaf ening. They have the handsomest transformation scene , consisting of nearly twenty drops , ever introduced in this city and worth miles going to see. The Black Crook is on for a long run , prob ably one hundred nights. Boston Ledg er. At the Menard opera house , Mon day , March igth. Reserved seats at usual place.

John has been in the company's service at this place since the fall of 1882 , and a more loyal and efficient employe the Burlington does not have on its pay roll. He will be missed.

The vitrified bricks are now on the ground and the floor of the building will soon be laid. Cinders and sand will foria the foundation upon which the bricks will be laid.

Seven more engines of this : lass are in course of building in the Bavelock shops , and it is stated that an srder for four more of them will be placed as soon as these are ready for the road.
