From irformation jusit received,
(sni as published in te daily papers)
e are i lorned that the Southern
wilwaybhi commeuced the final lo
Mol of tihe line froml Jellico to Enr
Ky., work having commenced at
Jellico on January 4th.
In viewof the fact that the road has
willingne to build the

atten 'on af our Oiti
a to a a es to be derived
by them froin the building of this road.
The on y inner in wbich we can se
cure.. right-of-way, is by private
subltipton, the present constitution
f ntucky prohibiting a county vot
. ptax for such purposes. We feel
iit is the. duty of each and every
cpizen of G arerd to do what he can
taward this,ae greatest improvement
/ ud.enterprise we will ever have of
fereds. A portion of the right-of
-, way has been obtained but there re- I
mains a larger part yet to be secured. t
It is estimated that the right-of-way t
will cost about $25,000. which sum is I
exceedingly low, when you consider i
e1-nanv advantages to be derived t
therefrom
- The following wil: show some of t
the advantares the road will bring to ;
the citizens of Garrard: I d
Miles of new road built in the tl
county, 10. Taxes per mile, $25,00. k
Sixteen mies at $20,000 per mile, g
$320,000. Other railroad property, rr
including depots, side tracks, water a
tanks and one-half bridge across Dix b1
river $100,000 making a total of $420,- m
000 inerease taxable property. At the fa
present rate of 973 cents this will bring In
into the county treasury $4,095 in er
taxes-. . bt
Last year thei-e were 510,000 bushels be
'*-Jof wheat shipped from Garrand coun- fr
ty to the markets. As everyone knows, cil
the price of wheat in other local cities of

day morning a fearful, accident oc
en in the southern portion of the
ci ty, ending the life of a young white
girl and seriously injuring her sister.
Tbe body of the young woman killed
was almost severed by the merciless
wheels of a locomotive, yet for two
hours s he lived in agony, retaining con
sciousnes and talking with those
about her. The girls were on their way
to begin their day's work in one of the
catton millF. They were happy and
anmlrdful of the terrible suffering that
was so soon t0 be theirs-of the advent
into another world that wa- to be the
lot of une. Making the trazedy all the
more deplorable was the fact that the
girs were helping to support an aged
mother living not far away. The young
pirl who lost her life was Leonora
Daniels, aged 16 years, and she who
was seriously injured was Flora
[aniels, ag(d 18 years, both sisters of
1otorman Daniels of the Electric
Ulway company, one of the best men
o1 the line.
The accident happened at 5 30 a. m.,

teet, bad left home and were walking
