of Improvement, I mean in comparison

large force of men working on the
Guernsey cut-off and construction will be
pushed as rapidly as possible. This out
erf ought to prove of great benefit to
Omaha and Nebraska, generally. It
means a short line to Wyoming and tha

"As to the building of tha line from
Kearney, up the Platte ' river to tha
northwest, it is not likely that anything
will be dona during the coming season.
However we hop to go on and finish

to secure another close connection with
