occasioned by the record breaking
run made last week by Lou Shull
in charge of the engine pulling
the morning fast maifc
in all walks of life, therfe ia
a gteat deal of strife amongst the
engineers on the fast runs, as to
whom the record for tbe fast mail
belongs, and until Shull's phenom
inal run ^aat week, Engineer
John Jackson held the record
for the fastest run on the western
division, covering tbe one hundred
and fifty mi lee of steel and gravel
between Boone and Conncil
Bluffs in one hundred and fifty
five*minntes. This record remain
ed nn approached for nearly a year
org9t$ last wee^, when'thVan
nouncement was made that Shall
had made the run in one hnndred
and thirty-five minutes, this the
friends of Jackson refused to be
lieve, and to substantiate their
statements they consulted the
train record at headqnartera which
showed that Shull had covered tbe
entire diatance in one honr and
twenty-eight minutes, taking opt
all ti^ne lost by stops. This is
the fastest Ions run record in the
west and it is safe to say toll re*
main so for many days to come.

Murx Heinman, Minsouri Valley,
Iowa,—Dear Sir: Upon my re
turn from the south, I am handed
a clipping from1- the Chicago
Record of Monday, Feb. 6, rela
tive to a little dog taken in charge
by a gentleman at Missouri Val
ley on January 16. As 1 am un
doubtedly the individual in ques
tion, I am pleased to communicate
Tbe circumstances are this, viz:
After the train- pulled out from
Missouri Valloy^ I was passing
throi^gh the vestibule from the
dining car into the sleeper when
I noticed the little dog sitting
there I spoke to him and we at
once became friends. Presently
the train conductor came through
and said the dog would have to be
put off tbe train, and' as Ave' wer?
then running about.j^fty imles an
hour, such a proceeding meant
that the dog would be kille^ or
maimed, so I took himjn gbarge
and had hicn takien to •tne^bagprng"
car and brought through'to'Chi
cago. He is now at my home.

"Poor" Has Returned.
Following the precepts estab
lished by that now famous feline
which has been immortalized in
song and verse, Poor, also has re
turned. Although Poor is nothing
but a dog, yet he is a canine of the
higher stratum. When at home
he is feasted and dined upon
chops, cakes and candies, but re
gardless of this, he rbtains several
of the characteristics of his less
fortunate brethren. He is in the
empryean of delight, when be is
in the act of assisting a member
of the Felis domestica fnmily to
ascend a tree furthermore, the
exterior of hiB animal economy
ia the abiding place of a choice
breed of degraded insects often
spoken of as fleaB, but regardless
of these minor defects, Poor is a
lovable animal and when about
two months ago he disappeared,
his owners, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Wyman were greatly concerned
about his absence, and as time
passed on and Poor did not re
turn to his bunk behind the
kitchen stove, a systematic search
was inaugurated, which resulted
in bis ultimate recovery. After a
Hhort search it was found that he
had boarded train, No. 2, at the
depot here, and was afterward
taken in charge, by a knight of
the grip, but the identity or ad
dress of the geutleman were not
forthcoming, and as a final resort,
his owners resorted to printers'
ink, an add giving Poor's descrip
tion and offering a reward was
published in newspapers through
out the country, and Inst week M.

The Northwestern sends out
from Omaha a daily train at 3
o'clock p. m. over the Fremont,
Elkhorn & Missouri Valley that
reaches the greater part of the
territory in that direction tribu
tary to this
within a few
hours afterward. Council Bluffs,
however, has no means for send
ing mail or express over this line
except by sending it on a train
that leaves here at, 11:20 in the
uiorning and conuectd with the
E & truiu til Missouri Valley
lour hours later. The implement,
dealers o£ the city, especially,
want a closer connection because
under the present arrangement
they are cut off from a valuable
trade in the vast territory through
which the Fremont, Eikhoru &
Missouri Valley runs. Orders
reaching Omaha until after 2
o'clock may be tilled by express
to arrive at their destination
the same afternoon, while in this
city orders arriving atter 9 or 10
o'clock cannot be shipped out un
til the next day after a delay of
nearly twenty-four honrs. This
makes it extremely difficult for
local implement dealers to build
up a trade in the northern Ne
braska territory because their
business is largely a "hurry up"
trade in which customers will
brook no great delays.
The commercial committee will
ask the .Northwestern to put on a
train between this city and Mis
souri Valley to remedy this defect
in the service. A train leaving
not later than 2:15 pin could con
nect with the Fremont, Elkhorn
& Missouri Valley train and give
Council Bluffs equal advantages
with its business rival. The ex
committee of its willingness to in
crease its service and the entire
matter now restB with the North
western. The city's rights in the
matter will be strongly presented
and every effort made to better the
service. The committee prepared
its first report to the city council
