have seen the old-fashioned endless-chain
pumps at work will have a good idea of
this machine, only it is made larger, and.
instead of metal buttons for suckers,
there are larger wooden blocks attached
to the chain. The machine is very sim
ple in its construction and not liable to
get out of order. Any farmer, living
alongside a good stream of water, can,
with the aid of this simple contrivance,
irrigate land without any trouble. This
is the use Mr. Thompson will make of it,
at St. Edward, in drawing water from
the Beaver. This particular elevator
will, with one horse power, raise through
ten feet, 300 gallons of water per minute.

alleged jokes at the school entertain

he didn't know whether a mistake in the
program was made by the copyist, the

crams it is only necessary to say that
the printer did his work all right, leaving
the proof-reader nothing to mark. We

the mistake where it belongs, if any
where, to the copyist But what will

unanimously by acclamation.
In response to calls Mr. Ragats said:
"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the
convention: I sincerely thank yon for
this evidence of the confidence you have
placed in mo. I have not sought the
nomination, and even now tried to per
suade my friends not to place my name
before, the convention. The office of
mayor is the highest within the gift of
the people of the city, and your nomina
tion would be an honor to any man. The
democrats have placed in nomination for
this office a man whom I highly esteem
as a citizen, and I assure you that in tho
campaign to follow there will on my part
be no mud-slinging, no use of "boodle,"
and, if elected, I will endeavor to do my
duty as I see it; to enforce the ordinan
ces, as I understand them; do my part
towards reducing the expenses of the city
to a minimum, and do my dnty in every

The High School oratorical contest
held at the opera house Friday evening
drew as large a crowd as the opera house
has held for a long time. The parents,
brothers and sisters, cousins and aunts
of Averv one of the one hundred and

ed to be there. In short every one did
better than the audience expected. The
songs by the different classes of the
schools are worth special mention. The
children sing their parts together won
derfully well. About $90 was netted for
the library fund. Those who won first
prizes (as below) will speak in the State
contest during the North Nebraska

Tho Union Pacific pay tar received
quite a shake-up 8nndayavening at 7:30
while coming down ony tho Albion
branth. Tho train consisted of engine
and tender, caboose and pay car. About
half-way between Monro and Oconee,
as the train was coming at a rapid rate,
the engine struck a broken rail. Tho
engine passed over bat the caboose and
other cars were brok.cn loose and thrown
from the track. - It. R Sutherland,
assistant superintendent, received seri
ous injuries in tho back, from what he
thought about three stoves falling on
him. Thomas Way, the road master, re
ceived bruises on tho limbs. The colored
porter got some bad bruises on the arms
and hands, from which he bled profuse
ly. Hugh Compton of this city, who
was the conductor, came out as sound as
a dollar, got a horse from a farmer, rode
to Monroe and telegraphed here for help.
Sup't. Sullivan is at the Thurston hotel
and will be unable to be moved for a
few days. The track was torn up about
500 feet; one of the cars rolled nearly 100
feet from the track. The wreck was
cleared off and trains run over the track
We Sweep the World,

all the railways of the world none stands
higher in the estimation of the public, in
all especial points, than the -Chicago,

only line west of Chicago which runs
