" The i'niost noble Duke" ought to know , he was there in person. But after the lights went out we think , well , ask "Joe. " Just a few words to those desiring job work : We do not claim to be able to do work as low as large , wholesale publishing houses we make no such silly claim but we do claim to do neat and tasty job work at a fair price , and are not ashamed to show our specimens of work , which has been giving satis faction. Call and see. There is room and necessity for im provement in the postal service in the Upper Republican Valley. We hear frequent complaints being uttered , and are continually being asked the CAUSC of miscarriages of mail. As the mat ter is now regulated , if a merchant of Culbertson wants anything from Mc Cook , his letter goes on east and re turns here the next day , or practically so. We move for a change of some kind that will improve this important matter. Hayden & Co. , of Indianola , had a close call by fire , early Monday morn ing. The Hall above their fine brick building had just been plastered and every effort was being made to have the hall in readiness for the hop New Year Eve. For this purpose fires were kept going to dry the plaster , a watchman was employed to take care of things. The hall was closed up , and all fires were supposed to have been extinguish ed late Sunday night. About two o'clock the building was discovered to be on fire , and by the strenuous efforts of the citizens who turned out en masse , they were speedily subdued , with but com paratively small loss. From accounts the fire evidently originated with the stove , the same not having been entire ly outened or was afterwards rebuilt. Considering the fact that there was no insurance on the building they are to be congratulated on their lucky escape. INDIANOLA OPERA HOUSE. On the occasion of the opening of the Indianola Opera House by Hayden & Co. a free dance was given which was an unqualified success throughout. The severity of the weather kept the large delegation from the Beaver at home , and likewise the band , which was ex pected to accompany them. And was also the cause of keeping many others at home toasting their shins. But by 10 o'clock the immense hall , not yet fully completed , was filled , well nigh 200 persons being present. A large string baud was provided , and dancing was continued until about 24 o'clock , when the jolly party repaired to the Indiauola House , over which the affa ble and obliging Mr. Clark Ward pre sides , where one of the finest tables which it has ever been our reporter's luck to strike in this western country was spread. Fruits , candies , nuts , cakes , moats , and other delicacies , all of which were appreciated to the full. After paying due respect to the cravings of the inner man the light fantastic was resumed and continued until about 3 in the morning. The long talked of B. & M. railroad coming to Grand Island is at last as suming chape to become a reality and on short notice. Surveyors are at work locating the route and-the right of way is being secured as rapidly as possible , property and lots are being bought and very fair prices are being paid for them in cash. Individualslike corporations , will take advantage of circumstances and when opportunity offers attempt io squeeze a little more , and in some in- staubes , considerably more than their property is worth , simply because they have parties in position where they must have it. We understand there are a few such cases in this city on the north side of the track , parties asking one-third to one-half more than their property is worth , hence the necessity of having it condemned and appraised. It is an evident fact that individuals , as well as corporations , need restrictions by law. The B. & M. having lately virtually got co'ntrol of the St. Joe and Western , arc now building a line of their own , and will make it uncomfort ably warm for the U. P. The rivalry between these two companies will un doubtedly create a competition that will be of great benefit to Grand Island , both in freight rates and giving us an opening to other coal fields that will cheapen fuel , which is one of the greatest drawbacks to this country , and all owing to the high rates of transpor tation. We arejgnorant as to the ex act route of the new road , but rumor says it will be built direct to Lincoln , instead of from Aurora , and that it is to be bnilt early in the spring. We say. Hail to the new road. Grand Island Independent. A WELL-TRAINED j mind in a sound body is the'greatest gift a parent can bless his child with. Remember this , fathers and mothers. Spend the dollars and time profitably now on your child ren , rather than to hoard it for them to spend uselessly by and by , fifty dollars and five years time if profitably spent on the youth , is better than one thous and dollars to them when they settle. The station agent at Exeter was ar rested the other day under charge of violating a town ordinance by allowing cars standing on a side track to obstruct travel in one of the streets. The rail road company and the village board pro pose to test the validity of the ordinance. This is something that will be of inter est to almost every town in Nebraska. Gazette-Jour n al. THE C. , B. & Q. , up to the present , has shown no sign of fear in the con test that its rivals have forced upon it. It seems to be the opinion of the out side public that the line can hold its own against all comers. On and after JanuarygT , 1S84 , the Citizens Bank of McCook will adopt Central time , which is 36 minutes fas ter than the present McCook time.
