strong ground for belief that this

in the future, there is little possibility

The foundation for the Ijelicf that
the construction will be taken up and

that a large sum of money has al

been expended on the work of survev

would cut little figure if it were not
for the fact that the road is acknowl
edged by nearly all practical railroad
men as a good business proposition.
There is bitter disappointment
strongly manifest in those who had

An Old Story.
It is the old storv of railroad wreck
ing bv manipulating stock. The rail
road scheme was recognized by mon
eyed men as a" good thing. , They
secured a majority interest and then
said to the t. Louis contingent,
Take what we offer now or what you
ran get after we abandon the line."
Their offer was a fair one as money
transactions go, and ai cash values
are estimated, but the future for which
these men had planned and builded
was not provided for.
It is admitted, but not stated ly
men who' are in a position to know
something of the matter, that there
is strong probability that the road will
be continued to Clinton antra while,
as there is already so much money ex
pended that it would be cbeaiier to
finish than quit.
A St. Louis paper say 3: ' 'resi
dent and General Manager raituorn,
of the St. Louis. Peoria & Northern,
returned to headquarters yesterday
from Chicago. The line between St.
Louis and Peoria will be operated by
the Northern Miort Line staff lor tbe

about by the sale of the projnjrty to
the Alton svndicate will probably not
be announced until after the return
of President Harriman from Alaska.
The closing of the Chicago freight

of work on the northern extension
are the only direct results as yet of
the change 01 ownership.

In 1839 a citizen of New York. Mr.
D.. Haviland. conceived the idea of in-
troducinir French China into this
country, and of organizing- and carry
ing on in Limoges a great decorating
shop ana pottery which should turu
out shapes and decorations in French
china dinnerware suitable for Ameri
can taste. This idea, with character
istic American enterprise, aided bv
ample capital, he carried to a point
which has revolutionized the produc
tions of Limoges? and has given to
Haviland china a distinctive character
such as no other ware possesses.
There have been imitations; the fame
it justly holds has made many dealers
trv to sell as "Haviland china" the
product of other factories than that
founded by D. Daviland. Genuine
Haviland china, from Haviland &

guished by the mark. Every piece
