Wednesday night of last week Nick
Rasticb, an Austrian laborer, who has
been employed in various capacities in
the local railroad yards since last Oct
ober, was struck by the engine of Over
land limited No. 2 and instantly killed.
Rastich had been employed at the coal
chute shoveling coal, working days, and
be wanted to learn bow to coal the en
gines, so was helping the regular man at
night. He bad just finished coal the
engine of No. 23, the Grand Island local,
and stepped to the ground on the east
bound track, not noticing that No. 2
was approaching from the west. The
engine of the limited struck bim and be
was thrown under the engine of No. 23,
bis skull being crushed and death being
instantaneous. He had been in this
country but a short time and could not
speak the language, but some of biB
countrymen who were employed with
bim gave Coroner Gass information con
cerning him. The dead man bad $2o0 in
currency strapped around his waist and
also bad receipts for various sums of
money be bad sent .to his folks in the
old country. After the accident his
body was brought to the depot and later
turned over to Coroner Gass. who held
an inijuest Friday, the engine crews of
both trains being present. The jury re
turned a verdict in accordance with the
above facts and exonerated the railroad
compauy from blame. The funeral of
ltasticb was held Friday morning from
the Catholic church, and burial was in
the Catholic cemetery.
Tuesday at high noou there was a
pretty wedding at the home of F. K.
Strother, at Sixteenth and Platte streets,
when Rev. O. W. Kay of the Methodist
church united in marriage Miss Helen
Shannon and Alexander J. Nafe. The
wedding was a quiet one, only immediate
relatives and friends being present.
The home was tastefully decorated for
the occasion, and the con pie were at
teuded by Mr. and Airs. J. II. Carter of
Norfolk, the only invited guests besides
relativen The bride wore a traveling
gown and the groom the conventional
black. After the ceremony h wedding
dinner was served. Miss Shanuon is the
youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. C
Shannon, and is a Columbus girl, having
lived iu this city until a year or two ago,
when she was in Trinidad, Colo., for
Borne time with her sister, Mrs. W. B.
Kenuey. The groom is a resident of
Goldtield, Nevada, where be has a re
sponsible position with the Goldtield &
Touopah railroad. Mr. and Mrs. Nafe
left on an afternoon train for the east'
on a wedding trip, which will include
Washington, Baltimore, Montreal and
Preston, Cauada. After a trip through
the east they will return here in about
three weeks for a short stay, aud then
complete their trip, which will include
Los Angeles and other poiuts in the
west, and after May 1 will be at home in
Goldtield. Nevada, where they will re
side. Friday the final revision of the changes
in the time table on the Union Pacific,
as approved by the railway commission
were completed and new time card issu
ed which went into effect Sunday.
Changes on the branch trains on the
Albion-Spalding line, make the passen
ger arrive thirty-five miuutes earlier, at
11:55 and departs twenty minutes curlier
at 1:10. The north bound Norfolk pas
senger in the evening departs twenty
five minutes later, occasioned by their
waiting for No. o. which now does the
local work between Omaha and Grand
Ieland.and is routed via the old main line.
The Spalding freight arrives twenty
minutes earlier, at 6:10. and this, with
the change in the schedule of the passen
ger train, gives passengers from that
line an opportunity to go either east or
west with but very little delay. The
new night train briugs the dailies in so
they are here first thing in the morning,
and that is one of the most appreciated
changes in the schedule.
Extensive improvements in the yards
aud buildings or the George A. lloag
Innil lumber vards in this city will be
commenced as soon as the new manager,
Kichard Gocbring of Grand Island takes
charge the first of the month. Mr. Goeh
nng has been in the employ of the lloag
litnu company for some time ut Grand
Island and other points, nnd his coming
to this city is permanent. He iB now
preparing to build a modern cottage and
has all the plans completed, but has not
decided on the location, which will be in
the northwestern pari of the city.
Henry Ricder, the manager of the Hong
land yard for the last three years, will
devote his time to his farm, north of
the city. During the last number of
years he has been identified with the
lumber business in this city, first with
the P. D. Smith company aud later at
his present location.
With its next issue, on March 1, the
Columbus Tribune changes hands, A. J.

ent owner. Richard Rmey. The deal

firm, has been connected with the Tri
bune as local editor for about a year, and

more than enough to meet tbe guarantee

scribed is not enough for the season, and
tbe soliciting committee will continue
their canvass for funds.

Whereas, There have been several

Theatres ruaning on Sunday, therefore
be it '
Resolved, That a notice be served on
tbe managers of said theatres to discon

The above resolution, which was pass
ed by tbe city council last Friday night,
brought the Sunday shows jot the city
into the limelight, and in accordance
with tbe resolution, notices were served
on the managers of both tbe Lyric and

ance providing for the funds and pur
chase of the-chemical. This report was
adopted and tbe ordinance prepared and

Tbe special meeting of the council

There was something beautiful about
the confidence tbe early christians
bad in God. Paul said: I know whom
I have believed. "When the christians
were thrown to the wild beasts in the
arena in faith they beheld tbe cross high
above the beads of tbe shouting populace
in the coliseum and what they saw by
faith made them strong to endure. It ie
an unwholesome sign when christians

of their salvation or his power to keep

Confidence is a sweet morsel to man.
He rushes from the commercial and poli
tical centers, where be has watched
every move of his constituency to the
companionship of bis true and tried
friends where he may relax and let down
tbe tention, because he knows love has
melted hearts so they run together in a
common interest. It is a sad, sad thing
when agnosticism leads one to doubt bis
love for Christ or Christ's love for him.
When be doubts that a common love had
melted his heart and tbe heart of Christ
and fused them for a common good.
Let us find that sweet love; that sweet
devotion; that sweet faith that says: "I
know whom I have believed. "With
many it will never be a sweet experience
until church vows and pledges are re
deemed, not until through God's church
they find a closer walk with Jesus.
