PRIZE WINNING MONTH
February Went to the Extreme

of beautiful sunshiny weather follow

day evening to tlomonstriito tho fact
that there was yet plenty of moisture
In stock. Tho rain poured Incessantly
all Sunday night and Monday. The
air was warm and the utorm was
without wind, tho ruin plunging
straight down in big drops. 1'cdosrit-

On Mouduy every depression was a
lake and overy creek a river, with a
"ground sluice head" running in

several unsightly boles just in flout
of tho court houso gale. From the
court house to tho railroad track the
water followed both sides of the street
lmimrtlally overflowing tho crossings
to a depth of several Inches. In
front of Haunard's furniture store,
Hotel Josephine, Vov' storo and the
ojK'ra house block, the water rippled
merrily over tho sidewalks. There
was uo way of dodging it. The ped
estriaus were compelled to brave the
yellow Hood and to ford the stormy
waters. Some went on tiptoe, others
crosaed in long hups and strides while
others splashed stoically iu ordinary
gait. Along some of the more deeply
submerged sidewalks, (ho city force
of street workers laid thick planks,
anchoring thorn to thu walk by a rno.
On these a straight walker was able
to mss dry shod from one high spot to
another. Toward euniing tho ram

A Good Meal:
for 60 cents!
It costs more to operate a dining-car than it does
to run a restaurant and yet, in Burlington diners,
prices are no higher than in a good restaurant and
not nearly as high as in an expensive one.
A good meal can be had for 60 cents and an ex
cedent one for half as much again.
On the Burlington you can depend upon getting
just what you want at a piice you can afford to pav.
