once r new line across the central part
of Wyoming. outh from Kirby.
This line h been planned for some
time, but the financial depression uf two
years ago put a atop to the work. In the
meanwhile. Arnnu Boysen built his huge
dam in the Big Horn gorge, which shut
out' the beet practical way or getting south
from Kirby and TnerniupoUs. Large force
of engineer have been at work nil spring
trying i find a new Water grade which
the Burlington might ua In getting from
the Big Hum Basin to. tha country along

that a new route hna been figured out by
the engineers arid' that the road Is prepar

Hill for three years ha been building a
second Une .across Wyoming, but difficul
ties have' been Ynet which have delayed the
work, until-'now- It Is almost a necessity.
Traffic' from the great 'northwest over the
Burlington northwest line is becoming
heavier and hettvlar all the time and it I

Mr. Hill to seek relief In I second line.
It is thought the Burllngon will build

Northwestern track east to Orin Junction
where the Colorado A Southern rails will
be used to Cheyenne and Denver.

Union Pacific officials are considering
the plan of enlarging the trackage facili

of the depot company may be called to
order the work to proceed at once. The
plan for the new tracks and for the over

but the work has been delayed until It 1
almost an absolute necessity. Not only are
the trackage facilities Inadequate, hut the
depot Is a so most crowded because so many
trains enter and leave the station within
such a short space of time.

Corn Good Start
Conditions Are Favorable Along the
Burlington for Growing
Weather has been especially favorable for
giving the corn crop a good start in Ne
braska, according to the Burlington' crop
reinrt. Planting Is well along In all parts
of the state where corn Is raised and In
many places the work of planting corn Is
completed. On the ' MeCook division, with
seasonable rains from now on there is no
reason why there should net be an average
crop of corn. On the three eastern divi
sions of' the Burlington the chances are
fine for a big crop.
it Is estimated there will be 6.000 acres
of sugar beots In the vicinity of Brush and
that the acreage of Nebraska will be about
the name as last year.
Indications now are for a better fruit
crop In Nebraska than has been raised for
several years. The present Indications for
the winter wheat crop are for about 86 per
cent of an aver ige crop.
Farmers around Lovcll and Guesnsey are
getting their ditches ready for Irrigation.
The hlgn winds of the last week have made
the soli of most of Wyoming very dry on
top, but crops have not suffered and a
rain within a short' time will fix everything
In splendid shape, especially on the line,
Holdrege to Sterling. . All pastures and
meadows are greatly in need of rajn.
