The Flaltsburg Puilfier says Gov

If thcro is nn Infamous character

Since it has become known that a no

Every year tho cost for ropairs on
tho railway along the Missouri bottom
Is very great and annually it must come
to enough to cancel tho profits of the
precedliifi'ijcar. This year, what with
delays, damages from washouts and
overflows it is almost equal to a relay
ing of the track' tho whole way. Sev
eral years ago we heard one of the best
railroad engineers in our Union say
that "If tho Missouri Hiver and valley
are subject to overflows and erosions
to tho extent represented, it can never
pay to have a road on the bottom, but
it must go through the uplands."
By giving a hundred dollars to
wards a church building at Atchison,
you will have tlio best chance ever of

hotter apprecitiou of this very extraor
dinary benefit of h privileged altar, It
is here milled that each lime mas is
offered for the dead at such an altar a
plenary indulgence is imparted to the
souls for whwse benefit the mat is ap
plied. Pope Leo XIII, has bestowed a
pontifical blessing on the enterprise.
