A number of cattle are being killed
every day on the B. & M. west of Mc
Cook. The "Kings of the road" use
dvery precaution , but explain matters
thus : The trouble seems to be one oi
prders. Stock never have orders tc
make more than 20 miles an hour , and
we frequently go 30 better , and as s
consequence the ambitious bovine ii
summarily bounced.
An order recently issued by the B. S
M. to the effect that all stock killed on
the road west of McCook , in this state
must have the hides taken off and plac-
cd where an inspector can examine the
brand , will meet the approval of a ma
jority of the stockmen in this pait oi
the state. All differences about owner
ship are tlms settled , and .the propei
parties are paid for the losses sustain

versions have been consummated , ha
been a feast to the professed follower
of the meek and lowly Saviour , giviiij
them renewed strength , establishini
their faith , and has been in many re
spects a source of profit to those i
attendance. Rev. Dean and Rev. Bart

There'are two divorce cases on tapi
in Red Willow county which will prov
most interesting and mayhap warm fc
some of the parties interested. Job

to our farmers , is the time to conside
the matter of spring planting. Th

There are farmers in Bed Willow cour
ty who have always successfully raise
crops of small grain , others who hav
failed almost every year. Farmers
industrious men , we mean , will drai
their own conclusion. We have hear
it from the mouths of a number o
homesteaders that they purpose planl
ing more extensively the coming sprin
than ever before. They seem to be full
satisfied of success. Choose intelli
gently respecting crops to be planted
and cultivate industriously , and rea
good crops next fall.

A Slight Fire.
We had a fire this morning about !
o'clock , which might have proven mor
serious in its results had the same oc
curred during the night. Mr. Farley'
kitchen was the scene. The stove pip
runs up through the roof there bein
no chimney whatever. This mornin
being quite severe , and a very hot fir
was a prime necessity , and the roc
caught fire from the red hot pipe. Th
fire -was speedily extinguished. Thi
matter of running stove pipes up throug
the roof is dangerous , and our city dad
ought to take the subject in hand , c
one of these days we will have a conflr
gration of dimensions to report.
