The new bus line, operated by the Burlington Railroad, began its schedule through Haxtun Sunday evening. The line operating from Denver to McCook, Nebr., will run four busses daily, two in each direction. The fact that Highway No. 6 which passes through Haxtun, is an all-weather road and is greatly improved over the Goldenrod from Wray to Brush prompted the Burlington officials to change the bus route, it is believed. Bus fares are practically the same as train fares, the rate being two cents per mile. The fare to Denver is $3.05, although a round-trip ticket may be purchased for $5.50.
Gordon McIntyre of Haxtun and Miss Bernice Lee of Sterling were married Saturday afternoon at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lee.
