He denied the statement ithat an inferior structure would be ibuilt. He says the lower floor and nlde walla can be used, lihftt they *ere not much damaged by 'the fire or water. Work will be commenced as soon as the insurance is settled, which he thinks will be in about ten days. In the meantime several baggage cars will be used in which to store baggage and seat passengers. EAILKOAD NOTES. The Pullman company has so many orders for new cars that it will not take any new contracts until! May, and but few before September of this year. The Terje Haute car work!!, in addition to the 500 bos earn It is to build for the Chicago & Northwestern, will build 150 furniture cars for that road. There now seems no reason to doubt the evident intention of the Wabash railway management to ultimately abandon Andrews an a location for its shops and division headquarters. It requires 130 to 140 gallons of oil per month to light the lanterns of the switches located on the Union tracks, at Indianapolis, and about double the quantity for the switches on the Belt road. Engineer Robert Hite of the Wabash on last Saturday night set a new mark for fast runs. OD train No. 3, between Peru and Lafayette, a distance of 54 miles, he consumed only fifty-eight minutes In making the trip. Long stops were made at Logaosport and Delphi.

Then scores of towns were built in this state and in Nebraska, where none was needed, and thousauas of settlers took up claims where now it the handling'of the land-would be be kind enough to aUow it to remain made • s pasture Tintil there could be something done to remove it It was granted. The result of it all is: that the settlers who remain are making a success and •re finding out just what the country is suited to do. They are trying to raise lock and not grain. They have stopped trring to build cities where only ranches are in demand. Tbe new era is one that means a great deal for the west, for it s the beginning of a period of permanent prosperity that will be valuable to he people and to the plains region generally The investments in town lots were disastrous, but those in steers will be profitable. The old time cowboys and the line riders are coming back, aud the Excitement of the early days, when the cattle trail was in its glory, is being repeated in lesser form. C. M- HAKGER.

M.ASDOXED VTATEBTTORKS. is universally admitted that prosperity from farming is impossible without ir rieatioa. As the lands are too far from streams to use this method of securing water there is no possibility of farming becoming a feature of the section, bu when it, was thought that this was pos sible tbeie was nothing too good fortn people who helped build up the plains Splendid brick and stone blocks, with marble pillars flanking the entrances ornamented the towns, and handsorn schoolhouses were erected for pupi, that nevfsr answered the call of the bell There were water systems that hav fallen into disuse long ago and telephones that have ceased to speak, ihe traveler hitches his horse to the hydrants of the waterworks abandoned, and the iwhoolhousa is the living place of some ranchmen. When it was demonstrated that farming could not succeed in thaf semiarid region, the population left Mow the cattlemen are taking possession. They have run their ranch fences for miles in every direction regardless of the ownership .of the land. Their cattle-are grazing where once the real estate agent sold lots f or $200each, and the cowboys stable their horses where there was oace a busy street. Many a town has been taken away, all>.he"huildings 'being removed to the ranches for houses and stables.- Others have been greatly depleted, and the in habitants who cling to the place are using oiUy the best of the property, bar- atoga Elan., is one of these boom towns. In it stands a handsome six room brick sehoolhonse, empty, except as a short term is raught during the winter month, to a score or less of children in one o the rooms. One or two store buildings are i'eft. The remainder have been taken down a:ad hauled awuy. Cash City, in the same state, was ouce a town of a thousand or so population. The other , day a cattleman bought the town site, including five buildings that had not been moved away, for *250, and his horses are stabled in the commodious double store. Tho supplies of the ranch are kept in an abandoned schoolhouse, and this other store buildings remaining on the site of the, one time "city" are at the disposal of the herders as they see fit to use them. Springfield is practically abandoned:, yet it once had a system o'i waterworks, and the people thought that it would soon be the metropolis of the state. There are many other sad examples of v,asted energy and money, together with ill advised investments on the part of those who were ted away by the enthusiasm of the times. , Tho farms suffered no less than the towns. One may see along the wagon courses in western Kansas when driving through the cattle ranches here and ---ere a deep hole with a pile of dirt ''eside it. It is the old well of some bandoned claim. There are hundreds rid thousands of them. The. story of the emigration is a short lie As the dry summers came and the rheat and corn did not grow the farm- rs tried time after time, 'but in vain. Then they took some state aid and some re.e S'-ed wheat. When these were gone, they put wife and family in the white opped prairie schooner and started on he voyage of discovery anew. Some went on to the western back to the wife's folks" iu the east, some to try it again in the counties in the eastern part of the same state, moved bv a pluck that would win anywhere that'a little raiu would fall. Tberewas a mortgage on the claim and little else. The investor who loaned the property now owns it, if he has not sold it to the attleman. The cattleman is not at all anxious to buy the land, though. He has a better way of handling it. He gets possession MIDWINTER FASHIONS. A Glimpse at the Style. For>,sxt SeMOD. Attire For Brideti- [Special Correspondence.] NEW YOKE, -Tan. o.— Now, in the midst of winter, we may find the delicate and dainty things for next summer's wear if we know where to look. These are lawns an-d organdies m the most exquisite designs of wild flowers in faint pinks and greens on ivory or white grounds. There are naturally other colors, like blue and lilac, and also yellow, each color representing some wild flower well, known and loved. All these are arranged in lengthwise stripes, generally three to a breadth, with two very black stripes about an inch wide down the center between the three stripes. It makes not only a beautiful design, but a striking one. There are also many new seersucker fancies, and these are so very pretty that it is almost certain that they will bei very popular for next summer. In the middle of the winter it is pleasant to see something to prove that there will be a summer again. There are some handsome -cotch ginghams in small figures, but >ach of them as perfect a clan plaid as the silks have been. Momie cloth is also one of the new cottons and is very pretty and will make up well. The proper trimming for that is ribbon iu sashes, bows and stole collars. The colors include all that are now in vogue as well as mocha, elephant ;md mouse. These, made up plainly and brightened with ribbon adapted for the purpose, will be handsome. Tomato red, reseda and bright blue are those best suited. Some Of them will have belt and all other ac- Shoe Store, 510 Broadway, AMUSEMENTS. D OLAETGOPERA-.HOFSB. fll • * • Wednesday, January 5th.

Sometimes a, landowner in ;che east hears of it and writes to the iBattleman, asking if he does uot think •he i« doing wrong w holcl the lanu d»t does not belong to him. The reply is an invitation to the owner to come and take his land out of the pasture if he i* not gatianed.with the gituation.

All the cotton goods for next summer shown so far are soft, except the organdies, and they are stiff because that is what organdies are intended Co be. I notice among some very choice importations some delicate fayai linen lawns, with clusters of fine dots, red, black, blue or brown. These are very refined and also expensive. They are to be made with a yoke baby waist and a gathered skirt with Spanish flounce. Spanish flounces, appear to have gained in favor very much, and one finds them already-in almost all the textiles now worn except velours, which would !>€• * o:me rather too heavy to manipulate well, mast wrne Draped skirts gain in favor dSffy coast, some T £ ere will be many tades during the nest two months. For a very grand, church wedding there was a gown OD exhibition, copied from one mnde for a young countess in London. Tbe dress itself was of white moire, with a deep festooned flounce of point lace. The bodice was of arrnnre silk, with point lace bretelles. The sleeves were of shirred chiffon. There was a court train of annure, embroidered with seed pearls and silver, and a veil of tulle. The veils of that and another fine wedding costume are n ot to be brought over the face. Another rich wedding gown was of heavy ribbed silk with a rich train. The trimming was three milliner's folds of satin. For evening dresses there is a new and beautiful wool barege with quite open mesh. This is to allow a bright taffeta- silk an opportunity to shine through. Some of the wool bareges have satin stripes, and it is an unusually pretty design. The authorities now threaten UB with the chignon, the hip pad and the bustle.
