Los Angeles trains No. 7 and 8, which
were discontinued about a week ago, are
again in service, the damage on the Salt
Lake road having been repaired. The
night train for the improvement of the
mail servioe, has not materialized. The
proposition to have the Grand Island
local leave Omaha about midnight met
with strenuous opposition from the peo
ple of Pspillion and other towns on the
old main line, and they took the matter
up with the railway commission, and
the hearing was held Monday of this
week, and by making a few changes the
schednle submitted by the Union PaciGo
was accepted by the commission. The
changes, which will probably go into ef
fect next Sunday, changes the leaving
time of the Grand Island local from
Omaha from 5:30 p. m., to about 11:0 p.
in., and in place of this one of the fast
trains, probably No. 5, will run via the
old main line to lane and make all the
local stops between Omaha and Grand
Island. Nos. '21 and 22 will only ran to
Grand Island, but their present time will
not be changed. West of Grand Island
anew train will be put on each way.
These trains will leave both North
Platte and Grand Island early in the
morning, doing the local work and will
be known as Nos. 25 and 2f. The new
arrangement should prove satisfactory
as it will give the same mail service that
was in effect before Nos. 13 and 14 were
taken off, and also provide accomoda
tions for those who wish to loave Omaha
for the west on a late train.

place in the lives of men who afterwards

rugged characters have often come from
the out-of-way nooks aad often without
the polish and fitting of schools have
become leaders of men. This does not
argue that men are not to give them

life's work, but rather that in close

something that equips one for great
We cannot have bodily separation to

One ear is hooked to society by the tele
phone and the other by the telegraph;
we are only a night's ride from the great
centers and their doing is graphically
pictured to ua in the morning press.
But if man ia to develops in christian
graces there must be a separation. The
christian man must stand aloof from the
questionable things of society as much
as if he were a thousand miles removed
in person. The christian woman must
be as far removed in thought and habit,
yes, in the sweetness of her own soul
