The Oreapolls Wreck.
A wreck occurred on the Burlington
at Oreapolis , Monday night , that blocked
the Missouri Pacific tracks at the crow
ing for two hours and required the ser
vices of the wrecking crew to remove
the obstructions. An engine and mail
car left the track inside the "Y" at the
Oreapolis semaphore station , and both
engine and car turned completely over ,
finally turning up on the Missouri Pacific
tracks. A special train in charge of
Yardmaster C. S. Johnson , and consist
ing of an engine and mail car , was sent
out to test the new Patten mail catch
ing and delivering device. The Burling
ton has been experimenting with this
mail catcher for several months , and it-
has been about perfected. The train ,
while running through the semaphore
station at Oreapolis , left the track with
the above results. The enginemen and
those inside the postal car escaped with
out a scratch , notwithstanding the fact
that both turned over completely. The
damage \vas.estimated at $500. Lincoln

Station Agent's Dilemma.
The station agent in the little town of
Atlanta , Neb. , found himself in an em
barrassing predicament , the other day ,
when he received a telegram from the
police department of Omaha , reading
like this :
"To the City Marshal : Arrest John
Kennedy , horse thief. Used to run
boarding house in Atlanta. "
Now it happens that there is no city
marshal in Atlanta , and that the entire
constabulary of the place is vested in
one man , a justice of the peace , named
John Kennedy. He , as judge of the
only tribunal in the village , acts as his
own police department , his own court
officer and his own jailer. The station
agent made some inquiries and ascer
tained that Judge John Kennedy also
ran a boarding house there at one time.
What was the agent to do ? Obviously
Judge Kennedy was the man wanted ,
but what was the use of delivering the
message to him ? It was too much to
expect him to arrest himself , try himself
and bind himself over to the district
The agent wired these facts back to
Omaha and asked for instructions , but
meanwhile the Omaha police had found
their man the right John Kennedy.
He had been located in Oak Grove , la.
The agent at Atlanta was told that he
needn't mind. Tuesday's Omaha Bee.
Increasing the Capacity.

upon the capacity of the system.

A BLIND MAN
Is one who fails to profit by experience , even though he has use of both eyes without the aid of
glasses. Time and again people buy clothing that is half made and containing mostly "Shoddy
and Flock. " Remember that three years among you has taught you that we carry no satinet
goods in the house ; what you buy of us is reliable and made by the best equipped factories in the
in the country. Our prices are the lowest named for good goods ; we carry no other.
