Two successive Mornings that train has drawn a bad engine out of Ravenna, catching the 081 Monday morning and Tuesday Engineer Harbottle and "Bill" Cun ningham with "Havelocker" engine 071 used several hours in getting to Ansley and then reported only four liot drivers and various other defects in the "hot" line. Engineer Strand was given a "P. D. Q." call out of Ra venna, and came to the rescue, with a fresh engine. Station forces worked Sunday hours Washington's birthday and the Alli ance section forces were placed on a lioliday or Sunday basis, which means, "no work at all'.'

"Bill" Bennett says "Just my luck." He didn't get back to Alliance in time for the big engineers' feed Thursday, night. The Alliance division experienced it night for train movement Wednesday. Although the mercury has been lower than 1G below this winter, a strong "northwester," with biting snows and sleet, impaired train movements. Random Shots GALOSHES BAD MANNERED.

Of course, the sheriff's statement makes it all clear in our mind. "That footgear is bad mannered," the sheriff is quoted as spluttering, although no man really splutters un- J less he talks with a mouth full of eat i ing tobacco.

Collective ownership of automobiles, at least, seems established. One is never sure he will find his where he left it. THE MYSTERY SOLVEDl ' Our Hemingford contrib., J. Winston Wilk.. has finally reached a logical solution of the famous Hemmgford dog poisoning mystery, which has had all the canine owners m tne neign- loiintr town un in the air for two or three weeks. There are two or three unimportant phases of the diabolical nlot that J. Winston has not as yet unraveled, but he could go ahead and unravel them any time that the notion Tiappers to strike him. His theory follows: "Colonel Grimes (auctioneer and town cop) has about unraveled the dog poisoning mystery. (J. Winston reaiiy solved it himself, but in his charac teristically modest way not only dis claims all the clory, but even present, it to "the law.") The blame Is now hoverintr around the hulk of one Hem ingford bootlegger. This .bootlegger. it seems, holds some one resident o this citv to blame for the raid by the Alliance officers New Year's eve night, and this some one resident had made known his plans for opening up an other butcher shoo In Hemingford m the near future. What more awful revencre could the bootlegger devise than to poison the dogs? If this theory proves correct, it certainly was a ciiny trick on the part of the bootlegger, as Hemingford has long hoped lor cheap er sausage. This theory might not pan out, but we have implicit confidence in our friend. J. Winston, and a growing cer tainty that the full truth will never be jenown until the Hemingford "law" accepts some such assistance. . Wo have resolved not to buy a dog as long as this poisoner is at large. TODAY'S BEST STORY. "See here," protested the lawyer, "if I am going to defend you, you'll have to drop that guilty look." This happened in Scottsbluff, of course, for the Star-Herald reported it. It's very important that we make this point plain, or half the attorneys in the city will be hopping on our neck, ami it's already raw. "I can't help it," replied the client "You see, I'm new in the bootlegging business, and I have an awful )oor The Rev. Mearl should feel com plimented. Two prominent business men told the editor yesterday thajt nit er reading the preacher's article aeainst the dance, they had decided never again to tread the wazes of the waltz or any other dance, for thnt matter. "I'm through," one of them said, emphatically, "and Jonn tells me that he's decided never to1 dance again. Those sermons did it ' Questioning revealed the fact that the men were both getting along wen in , years ami that neither or tnem nuu danced for twenty years, but it waj a great moral victory just the same. If what the Rev. tells us is fact, the dance is trettinar too interesting for any man to miss, unless, as Mother Partington used to say, "he is an oc togenarian and can't Jift a peck of wheat bran." The merry widow who shoved a butcher knife through the interior of her third husband at Lincoln the other day may find a good opening in the movies or on the stage yet Her diary has not been discovered, but there are some entries in her "wedding gift book that fairly scintillate. Thus, in a description of the first day alter the marriage, which included a cafe dinner, an auto ride and a luncheon, this comment follows: "Getting married is sure tiresome. The book had a page for new fur niture. The bride wrote: "We haven t got a darned thing. The wedding gift from the groom was a carving set The bride says her gift was "a ruby ring and a few prom ises which I later broke."
