A TRIP TO THIS GROWING TOWN
REVEALS SOME FACTS THAT
ARE WORTH RELATING.
CoL Edgar Bennett, One of the Moving
Spirits His Lovely Home.
Aeid a. Word for the IHcCruckena.
The Nkws man malo a quiet little
jaunt to tho beautiful and growing
town ol lrvington last week. There was
nothing remarkable about this trip; it
was purely business. We were out after
the filthy lucre that is bo necessary
in running a well conducted newspaper
Very few people realize that it takeg
money to run a paper, and really we forgot
our mission soon after leaving tho
train and falling in company with one
of the moving spirits in tho now flourishing
village of lrvington, Col. Edgar Bennett.
Tho Colonel is never too busy, to
show you the beauties and advantages of
His Weal city. And indeed, tho Colonel
has much to hi proud of. lrvington is
growing, and that, too, far beyond what
its projectors hoped for two years ago.
It is situated in ono of the best wheat
growing sections of Breckenridge county,
and is In easy drawing distance of the
best wheat producing soctions of Meade,
consequently it is a fino location for n
Lmill. Tho Boyd brothers, appreciating
this fact, are now constructing one of the
best of its size in tho State, and hoto to
nave everything ready for tho new crop.
The mill is a four-story frame structure,
well and substantially built, and will be
fitted up with tho latest and most improved
machinery. Its capacity will be
seventy-five barrels of flour per day and
400 bushels of corn. It will bo a big
thing for lrvington, adding many thousand
dollars to her business and hundreds
of people to her population. The Boyd
Bros, aro practical millers, with plenty
of means to conduct their business, besides
they are splendid gentlemen, and
lrvington is to be congratulated on- securing
them as citizens. -
In addition to tho mill thoro faro several
dwelling houses going up. A turntable
has been built by the railroad, the
depot facilities aro to bo enlarged, a big
water tank is to bo erected and'othcr improvements
to bo made by the railroad
will make the town a real live one this
Upon tho kind solicitation of Col. Bennett
we boarded the L., II. & W. train
and accompanied him to his beautiful
homo about four miles south of
directly on tho lino ,of the road.
Col. Bennett has one of tho most elegant
homes it has been our pleasure to visit
in a long time, situated as it is on a
beautiful slope overlooking a fertile and
well improved valley on the west, and on
the cast and south with immense forests
of well timbered lands underlaid with
rich quarries of lime and sandstone rock.
We also visited the famous Basin
Sprjng Stock Farm, owned and conducted
by Mr.'W. W. Williams, who has
achieved wonderful success in the
breeding and raising of fine blooded
horses. He also has a beautiful place
well improved nnd finely located.
While here. Maj. W. V. McCrucken
came in on his handsome private coach,
Katie, accompanied by his niece, Miss
Katio Mason, A. M. McCracken and
wife, J. K. McCracken, II. M. McCracken,
II. N. Hudson and Mr. Seymour.
The party had been on a tour of inspection
and stopped nt Col. Bennett's to examine
his limestono quarries with a
view of opening them up.
They found tho stone in great abundance
and of a superior quality nud easily,
obtained. Major McCracken was highly
pleased with the outlook and said to Col.
Bennett that he had a valuablo stone,
worth, says he, to you ns much as a gold
mine. It isourbu8ufcssto?hclp develop
the resources Of your county. In doing
this we help you nnd at the same
timo help ourselves by making business
for our road. Wo are willing to givo vou
all tho shipping facilities you want and
haul your Btono at a prico that it will pay
you to get it out and nt tho same time
compete with other markets. Wo not
only want to aid you, Colonel, especially,
but it is our purpose, as fast us wo
can, to aid in developing others along
our lino who have valuablo stone. Wo
aro not herb for tho purpose of gouging
everybody, nor nro wo the soulless cor
poration that some aro pleased to call usf
ii is our own money wo nave investeq
in your county. Wo'vo mado every
dollar we've got by hard work And
we've got every dollar wo possess on
earth invested hero. Wo want
to build up n business for ourselves
and at tho same time help tho
peoplo dovelop tho valuable resources
wo find so abundant along our roads. To
do this wo want their co-operation and
you will always find us ready and willing
to do ou part.
ThoMaJQr was in a, particularly good
humor nnd conversed freely with tho
-writer; and Col. Bonnet in regard to. tho
'future of Breckenridgo county. Ho has
great faith in her future. He not only
says so, but. is proving it by his works.
The McCrackcns have done and arc doing
a grand work for this couuty, and
tho News is willing to givo them credit
for it. Of course the Nkws is aware of
tho fact that there Is soma prejudico existing
among our people against the
McCrackens, ns thero is against all railroad
builders and corporations. This is'
natural where thero nro so many conflicting
interests. But now that tho
road is built and wo see the many advantages
it is bringing us, wo should
worktogether'with these men who have
invested their millions with us, for the
further dovelonment and imnroveaMat
of our county and tho towns along "!
line. We must get out of the old nwr
and show tho men who cowe hMlWftf

Our usually quiet town was thrown into
a state of the wildest excitement on
lost Thursday by the burning of the old
Moorman house. It was occupied by
Mrs. Pulliam, who was keeping boarders.
The fire originated from a defective flue
in tho kitchen. Mrs. Pulliam lost about
half of her household goods. Miss Bettio
Allen nnd father, who had rooms there
lost everything except a very few articles
of clothing. Our citizens worked des
perately to prevent Mr. E. P. Moseley's
house just across the street from burning
for which wo feel tho profoundest gratitude.
Mr. Miko Blum's largo dwelling
also caught fire on tho roof from flying
sparks, but was extinguished almost immediately.
The Moorman house was not
Insured at tho timo of burning, so the
loss was total.
