A writer in the hnoxvillo Tribune
says that within tho pust eighteen
months thirty four manufacturing en
torpriscs have been located nlonc; the

iu referring to thin matter, says:
"This is one ol the good results of
having a railroad that takes an active
interest in the development of the suc?
tion ol tlit; country along its line. Tho
llliuois Central has done much for tho
Southern section through which it
runs. Through its active encourage?
ment and aid in the way of shipping
t?te? a fruit and vegetable industry liua
been built up a ting its lines in VVesI
Teunessee, oud further South, that uu
uualfy yields many IhousauUs of dol?

Our contemporary is of the opinion,
oud it is not alouo, that railroads cau
be mtule great developers und great
Promoters of prosperity, anil it might
have udded, that the Southcru roads
generally have been n promoter nud
