The Burlington Route have discon tmued the Tuesday evening special to the World's Fair train. They have lost many dollars by not having a regular train on this branch every evening to make connection with the St. Louis flyer at Bigelow. There are many peo pie who would have taken the Burling ton to tbe World's Fair City if they had been assured of good connections as they were on the Wabash. We hope to see in the near future another passen ger train put into operation on this branch each way and we are of the opin ion that such service would prove a pay ing one to the company, besides a great convenience to the traveling public. If the people along this line would make a united effort for another train each way, it is possible that their wants would be supplied. The Burlington people are not as "grouchy" as the- are given credit for. Skidmore Standard. very ill for some time, is now much ter we are glad to learn. he i'reshvterisin ladies turn snea a most excellent dinn-r on election day, ami were liberally patronized.

On Friday evening of next week, from 6 to 10, during the Mum show, Mrs. India Price will serve oysters in any style at her home, on the west side of the square. Overshoes are about 50 per cent higher than they were last year, but if you buy of us you'll not see the ad vance. We bought before the advance. Krkek & Hasness.

Hardman oftL-iated as master of cer emonies. Elliott Marshal, of the Burlington Route, who owns the old Scott farm south of Oregon, aud raises chickens on the side, had a fine show of his fowls at the World's fair, aud came off winner of several prizes. He sent 14 of Dark Brahraas, and captured 1st on cock, 1st on cockerel, 1st, 2nd a ad 3rd on hen, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 1th on pullet and 1st on breeding pen. These were won in the state contest, and the following iu toe worm s rair contest: second on cockerel, 3rd, 5th. 6th aud 7th on pullet, 4th on cockerel, 7th on hen and 4th on breeding pen. The total vtdue of the premiums amounted to $75. This cap ture is certainly sufficient to make Mr. Marshall feel somewhat "stuck up," and we certainly do not blame him, and it gives Holt county a creditable place in the list of prize winners. Will York, of this city, captured 3rd on cock, 2nd on hen and 3rd on pen in White Pi mouth Rocks, in the state contest. R. li. Bridgeman took 4th on cock, 7th on cock, 6th on cockerel, in the White Wy andotte class in the state contest. This class doubled anv other c'ass in the great poultry show. Burlington Fair Rates.

The little 18 monlhs' old daughter of Tom Bunker came near losing its life Sunday last. Nov. (j. 1904. The little one was in the habit of visiting the hog pm in which there were some hogs. On Sunday morning the little one went to the pen and in some way got over among the hous, and in her hand she carried a piece of meat. Thisofcour.se attracted the hogs and th-y pioceeded to devour it, but not until they had nearly de voured one of the lit tie one's hands Her cries attracted the atuniion of her parents, and when found, the hogs had aberated her hand so badly that only the thumb and middle tin-jer of her right hand was left, aod her left ear was badly lacerated The little nn is now resting as nicely as could be expected under the circumstmees. It's such a beautiful old world, it's a shame not to enjoy it more. It's aa artistic old world, too, but do we stop to realize the harmony with which nature blends all her effects? When a woman gets a new hat, or a new gown, she gives up her whole soul to a wrestle with the problem as to how t j make the colors, ! harmonize. Nature takes any old col ors, orange, pink, blue, green, runs them together, and you can't pick out an in harmonious square inch. What would one woman think of another when she saw one trying to wear a combination of brown, red, purple, yellow and sky blue? Horrible? But look at the frost touched forest against the sky on a bright autumn day. Same combina tion, only more so, and yet you hold your breath in rapture. Curious, isn't it? A bridge accident occurred near Fillmore, Saturday, Oct. 29, 1904, that resulted in the death of a team of horses, the breaking of Homer Hall's le? and a sprained ankle for Wash Pearce. It seems that a gang of men were working on a bridge over a deep ravine about a j a mile and a half northeast of Fillmore.! Wash Pearce came to the, bridge with his team, and thinking it safe to cross, j drove on. The structure gave way when he was well on, and the whole thing went to the bottom of the ravine, a dis tance of about 30 feet. The horses were kiljed outright, and Pearce's ankle whs so "badly sprained that he was laid up for se'eral weeks. A piece of timber struck Homer Hall on the leg, resulting in a severe break, and a timber also struck Emmett Wade, bruising him painfully, but not seriously. The men went to work at once and extricated the Henry Wright is all right. J'.'L. Whitam, of Forbes, is visit ing his son, Lin, here, this week. Mrs. M.

Ihe doings in real estate during October just pHSt do not show near the activity of one year ago.

The Peret brothers Charley, Jim and John are surely entitled to the blue ribbon as Republicans. The former came nearly 300 miles and Jim 200 j miles to get in their vote for the Re publican ticket, whiie John "hoofed" it nine miles in order to do the same. The country will always be safe so long as it has such political patriots The cozy little home of Mrs. Re becca Coleman has been greatly im proved by reason of having been recent ly painted by A. H. Greene, who has such a happy faculty of knowing the harmony of colors. The body is of blue grey, the trimmings in white lilac, the ssh in maroon. The blinds are in Tin- perary green. The porch floors are in grey. The job is one of those that Mr. Greene can afford to be proud of and we feel sure that Mrs. Coleman is fully satisfied.
