THE IMMENSE TRAFFIC

Freight as This is the Center of a
will go in soon. There has been
an immense amount of yardage
laid here and at this date they
are well tilled with car loads of
freight. Since the road came in
there has been a rush on to get
goods delivered that had been
held up waiting the rail service.
One lumber yard received ten
cars of lumber in a day this week
and other business concerns have
received freight in almost like
manner. The drays have Itecn
busy and everything pertaining
to business has assumed metrop
olitan proportions of late. Lub
iKick has been receiving a lot of
advertising lately and when the
year is a little futher advanced
we may expect to see a tide of
immigration headed this way that
will surprise the natives.
