is almost a sure success. Soon we
may expect to hear the sou nd of
the whistle, as the locomotive
makes its way across the plains
and valleys, of. our Piedmont see

Rail Road Bill is likely to build up
suchl an enterprise as this, theu We
are better off for the chang1e. It
is one of the grandest. ,chemes in
which South Carolina has ever par
iicipated. 'hIe( Completion of the

than any other enterpriie that
cotld be Started. It has already
