The financial condition of the Burling
ton system , as shown by a recent report
in the Journal of Finance , is highly flat
tering. During the first nine months
of the year it earned $4.254,217 on its
stock , and it will pay its usual 5 per
cent dividend for the year. The Bur
lington always represents the best phase
of American railroading both in its
financial and operative management.
Locomotive No. 210 , Engineer Ed.
McKay , had the misfortune to go into
the ditch , last night about midnight , at
the east end of the , yard. It is stated
that the engine was cut loose from her
train at Culbertson to do some switch
ing , and that in coupling on again the
air was forgotten. When an effort was
made to stop in the McCook yards , this
oversight became apparent , but the
momentum of the train was too great to
be restrained by the hand brakes , and
the engine ran through the switch. A
large force of men are at work today

damage is not heavy. Passenger train
