I .,...., .1 . j .- 1 u The railroad companies in making a rate of one fare for the round trip during the holidays are not only accommodat ing the traveling public, but are doing that which will yield themselves a greater revenue. Keeping passenger fares up to the highest notch does not enrich the compauy. The first through passenger train over the Rock Island to the Pacific coast left Chicago Sunday night, coming via St. Joseph. Missouri, to Dodge City, where the Santa Fe road took charge of the train.

Executive Com. The commissioners of the state sol diers' home located at Fort Dodge, five miles east of the city, did the handsome thing in the appointment of Captain D. L. Sweeney as commander of that in stitution. We predict that Mr. Sweeney will prove the right man in the right place. He is deserving of this recogni tion as an old soldier in the late war and a leading representative of the G. A. R. of which organization be is an active member and is at this time honored with the office of commander of Lewis Post of this city. The Globe-Republican is pleased to see him thus recognized. The officers of the Omaha, Dodge City & Southern railroad are very much encouraged at present over the" prospect of the ultimate success of their road.

With the building of the above line will start the Dodge City, Montezuma & Trinidad, which is already twenty-eight miles southwest of us and the officers of it are anxious to extend it into the coal fields of Trinidad, Colorado. The sorrel mare belonging to J. W. Gilbert indulged in a lively runaway Sunday morning. She was hitched to the phaeton, which was occupied by Mrs. Gilbert aud the coachman, and in coming down the hill in the west part of town took fright at something and be came unmanageable. At the foot of the hill the coachman succeeded in making a sharp turn which threw the mare, thus bringing her to a halt. It was a very narrow escape, and only the coolness of the occupants of the car riage averted what might have otherwise proved a disastrous runaway. The bug gy shafts were demolished, being the only damage done. "Masonic Manhood." Rev. S. E.

Topeka, Kansas, j Piano Recital. Another excellent musical entertain- ment was the first pupil's recital given br Miss Minnie Sheldon at the Pbenix rooms ' Friday evening, which was greeted bv a , large and very appreciative audience The piano numbers given by the pu- I PiU were rendered in a perfect manner. ana ineir execution crave evidence f very careful training and proved bevoud I a doubt the abilitv of thpir toni'hpr The numbers marked with an were given by talent who assisted Miss Shel don, and all were given in such a manner as to elicit enthusiasm, especially the numbers by Miss Whitelaw. Mrs. Gilbert, and Mrs. Churchill. It is quite impos sible to particularize in detail when each successive number rivalled the preceding i one in artistic excellence, and for the better reason that we are so often called upon to criticise almost the same talent at each musicale. but a word of praise is justly due ro the piano solo which was performed by Miss Minnie Sheldon in a noble manner and with true artistic feel ing. This selection was a peculiarly dif ficult one, and that it was fully appreci ated was shown by the hearty recall. We can best express ourselves in this quota tion : "Music resembles poetry; in each Are nameless graces, which no methods teach, And which a master hand alone can reach." Miss Sheldon also had the assistance of Mr. C. M. Beesou. violinist, and Mr. E. F. Sheldon, cornetist. who, together with herself as accompanist, gave the opening and closing overtures.
