"Ich weiss nich( ryas sod es bedenten,"
but to-night the tugs of memory are
drawing towards Old Carroll!
It is sad to think of the friends
gone before; and not pleasant food for
the cud of immagination, that we too
must soon go!
But to turn from the sadness 0of, the
future and the gladness of the past to
the now: the news the B.-D. brings of
the material prosperity of your town
and pariah, fills me with pleasure and
pride. To me it seems your advance
is going to be marked and rapid. I
trust the day is very. near when I shall
have the pleasure of visiting the old
home by an all rail route. There used to
be warm times and pleasant times in the
old town; and I must confess to being

The railroad documenit gotten up a
few weeks ago by Mr. Fred Rudson,
third vice president of the Memphis,
Helena and Louisiana railway, who
came to Providence for the purpose of
writing it up and having it submitted
to the property owners of our parish
for their acceptance, and which was
signed by almost every person in East
Carroll, was received on Friday last
from St. Louis, and it is gratifying to
know that it was approved and accept
ed by the head otlicials of the project
ed road. The agreement submitted to
the railroad comipanyand accepted is
fair and just, and now all that has to
be done is to bring expropriating
proceedings against those land owners
who have refused to give the right-of
way and have the matter closed up as
speedily as possible. The agreement
briefly stated is, that the citizens
agree to procure and convey to, free
of cost to the Memphis, Helena and
Louisiana Railroad Company, a good
title to a strip of land of the uniform
width of one hundred feet for the
right-of-way for its railroad through
the entire distance of the parish, the
title to be secured not later than the
1st day of April 1902. The time is
now only sixteen days off, and those
who have this matter in hand should
be up and doing.
