An extra south bound freight in charge of Conductor R. A. Stinson, was wrecked in the local yards on the new passing track Wednesday morn ing at 1:15 o’clock. Engineer Tom Bradley was hurt by jumping, injur ing one leg and body. The track had been approved the previous afternoon by T. Glavins, roacjmaster, but proved soft and would not hold the weight of the heavy freight engine, which toppled over and carried one car with it part of the way down the dump. The fire alarm was turned in by mistake, Night Watchman Huffman thinking it was a fire. IN HONOR OF MRS. WOLFF.

A very poor house witnessed the ten mile walking race Tuesday night of Cow Boy Smith of Denver against ten local athletes, the professional winning over the amateurs by a mere | scratch, but then he probably wanted i to make the home boys feel good, j though several of the last entries j made things decidedly interesting for j the crack walker from the far west, j The 10 miles were made in 1 hour, 8 minutes and 33 seconds being walked in a circle, whose circumference was 1-36 of a mile, upon the opera house stage. Two preliminary bouts were pulled off between young pugilists and the race stirted at 9:15 p. m. George Allen and W. B. Egan were judges; Charles Brasch, official time keeper, George Sexton and Ira Erwin, score keepers. The following are the scores of the local athletes, showing the time in which each walked a mile: G. L. Grant, lost 1 lap. 7:10 J. H. McFarland, lost 1 lap. 7:16 Isaac Davidson, lost 2 laps 7:20 Geo. Sink.6:33 Newt O’Neal . 7:20 Roy Johnson, gained 1 lap 6:50 A. T. Hubly, gained 1 lap. 6:25 Will Whitaker.6:15 H. Knoles 1:15 S. H. Jackson, gained 2 laps.6:10 ROCK ISLAND MAY MAKE SECOND SURVEY. While nothing new has been given out recently by the officials of the Rock Islands system regarding the building of the line from Belle to West Plains and on to Newport, it may be interesting to know of the other branch lines contemplated by that rapidly growing system in this section says the St. James (Mo.,) Journal. When the survey was made of the Belle branch last month, the southern connection to Newport was made at Jacksonport, Ark., on the White and Black River Valley Railroad. This road is a Rock Island railroad through the purchase of the Choctaw line, which owned this branch. Jackson port is the northern terminus of this line, which extends sixty miles north from Brinkley. It is now reported that a new survey is to be made of this branch line north from Jacksonport. Instead of going in a northwestern direction up Straw berry creek, as Engineer Ramsdell rliH frhp npw snrvflv will onnHnnp nn Black river to Black Rock and then in the direction of Doniphan and Poplar Bluff. It is thought that the survey will be continued northward to St. Louis. Should the Rock Island conclude to build this last named line there will be no need of constructing the Belle branch. For some time it has been known that the Rock Island intended making a survey east of here with a view of comparing the line with the route from Belle to Newport and se lecting the one most suitable and feas ible. WINNERS IN CONTEST. The winners of prizes in the word contest instituted by the Newport Builders Supply and Hardware Com pany, are Miss Clara Brooks and Miss Jennife Hubert in the order named. The baby Quick Meal Range falls to the lot pf the former and the $5 in gold offered by J. R. Cox to the latter. There were twenty-nine contest ants and all the lists handed in were so neatly and correctly compiled, that the Newport Builders Supply and Hardware Company will mail each girl a pretty souvenir. The judges were Revs. J. W. Smith and Mr. Nor ton and the lists were submitted to them by number and the prizes awarded to 5 and 8 without knowing the authors of the different lists.
