The 60-foot wooden, bridge on the
Union Pacific one and n half miles esst
of Schuyler was so badly damaged by
fire Friday last that it waa considered
unsafe for the passsgeof trains, and thia
condition continued for nine hours,
traiaa going round in the meantime on
available routes. Conductor Murphy
was the first to notice the burning bridge.
The supposition is that a spark from
some passing train had found lodging
and foal in the bridge.
Peter Duty, graduate of the last

ing of the first lectare coarse and of the
first entertainment in Columbue, and
although no names are mentioned, those
scqnsinted in the High echool easily
recognise each person. The merit in the
composition ie not ao much in the sub jeet

write an interesting story about the com

There is always opportunity for the
exercise of a aian's genius. We had even
supposed that the street-crossing west
of Niewobner's on Olive street was in
tended by the authorities to show those
who pay the city'a bills what might be
done at every crossing, for the price
available in the treasury, but when we
came to talk with Jacob Glur, commend
ing his work for all the good apparent,
viz: the deep foundation of .brick-bate,
pounded down; the strong, thick layer
of cement, which with proper time given
to eat, will iaeresse iB solidity ss time
goes by, we found that hie ideal mental
picture of a crossing, costing leae per
haps, considering all things, than the
actual one under our feet, waa a long
stride forward. Stand up for the city.

We quote the following from the
Spokane (Washington) Beview, giving it
in full because it gives interesting items
concerning n former Nebraska boy, in
whose welfare many Joxtbsxl readers are
interested: "W. H. Burtt has declined
the position of assistant postmaster ten
dered him by Postmaster Hartson, and
Byron Dieffenbach, the incumbent, will
be retained indefinitely, probably
thmnrhnnt Mr. Hartaon's term of office.
'Mr. Burtt decided to retain his position
with the Washington Water Poer com
pany,' said Postmaster Hartson yester
day, and I have decided to retain Mr.
Dieffenbach for an indefinite period.' It
ia generally understood in postoffice
circles that Mr. Dieffenbach's reappoint
ment is a permanent one, and he waa the
recipient of many congratulations. He
is regarded aa an exceedingly competent
man, and among those who are highly
pleased are the postal inspectors. A
great part of the detailed work of the
office devolves upon the assistant post
master. When Postmaster Temple's
office waa checked np recently, prior to
Mr. Hartaon's assuming charge, the
accounts of the office, which were largely
under Mr. Dieffenbach's supervision
checked to the cent. The inspectors
who checked up the office say that it was
one of the best conducted in the United
States, and that the credit ia due not
only to Mr. Temple, but to Mr. Dieffen
bach aa well. Mr. Dieffenbach waa
appointed by Mr. Temple in October,
1899, to succeed J. F. Leghorn. Mr.
Dieffenbach waa formerly in the railway
mail service, and haa been familiar with
postal Blatters nearly all his life."
