the branch lines will all be given better
service if not passenger service.
THE ST. FRANCIS BRANCH.
Atwood Creamery was opened Tues
day. Hon. VV. W. Marple , of Beatrice ,
was master of ceremonies , and made an
interesting speech. There was music by
the Atwood band and speeches by the
Herndon creamery opened Wednesday
and Danbury Thursday.
The Orleans and Atwood country has
now six creameries or skimming stations
built and building , namely , Orleans ,
Beaver City , Wilsonville , Danbury , Herndon -
don , and Atwood. The Queen of the
Beaver was the first to purchase the re
quisite stock , the first to erect a cream
ery building , and the first to open to the
public. For enterprise and snap Atwood
will line up with any of her sisters in the
short grass country.
The grand masque bal of March 4th
was a great success in every respect.
Fully 150 dancers were present , of whom
75 were masked. McDonald , Blakeman ,
Herndon. Ludell , and of course Atwood.
were there , and it was truly an array o
beauty and chivalry worthy of any time
or place. The costumes were unique ,
especially those that-adorned the forms
of the gentler sex. The spectacular ef
fect was pleasing , and reminded one of
carnivals and the mardi gras of southern
climes. Atwood and vicinity can boast
of as many pretty girls as any locality ;
and , like the famed Blue Grass country
of Kentucky , she is proud of them.
Never in the history of Atwood has there
been such an ideal ball. In the language
of Byron , "Bright the lamps shone o'er
fair women and brave men. " It could
not have been otherwise when the inim
itable Johnny Morrisseyand Mr. Greason
of the Republican-Citizen" managed .
It was the climax of the many successful
society events of the season.
The branch trains are gorged with
heavy freight. Trains of over thirty cars
mostly filled with merchandise , lumber ,
farm machinery , and flour are a common
thing , west bound ; and it takes two
stock trains to handle the live-stock ,
Wednesdays. 1891 and ' 92 are only a
memory. This year so far excels those
times that they live only in the mouldy
past. New buildings are looming up by
the wayside. Corn cribs overflowing the
lap of plenty , fat kine , and plump wheat
bins , and the best of prospects for the
coming season , make , the farmer forget
the years that once hung like a night
mare over this fair land.
The trains are so heavy on the branch ,
that the locomotives we now have are
too weak to pull them and make time.
The people on this branch are fondly
hoping for a passenger train. It seems
that business is certainly good enough to
warrant it , at least as far west as At
wood. .It is said that Bird City has
dwindled to seven families , or 35 popula
tion , and McDonald is still smaller.
What these towns have lost Atwood has
gained. Blakeman has been dismantled.
Most of her buildings can now be seen
Engineer DeLong and his old stand-by ,
No. 161 , was a welcome visitor , this week.
Brother tDeLong is a good runner and a
pleasant fellow. No. 161 made No. 76
ashamed of herself. If we had more en
gines like Nos. 161 and 212 , jthere would
not be so many delays.
Engine 116 went to the shops from this
branch , for repairs. She is not heavy
