On Thursday last a charter
teas filed with tho Secretary of
Ktate, organizing the St Louis
Anthony & Silt Tlain Kallroad
Company. The purpose of the
organization is to construct, equip
and operate a line or lines of
railway through the couties of
Labette, Montgomery, Chautau
qua, Cowley, Saniner, Sedgwick,
Harper, Barbour and Comanche,
to the Salt I'laines, near the Ter
ritory line, with a branch from
Wichita to Anthony. Said rail
road will commence at the city of
Parsons, In Labette county and
past through the towns of Cher
ry vale, Independence, Sedan, Ar
kansas City, Ilunnewell, Caldwell
and Anthony. A board of direc
tors has been chosen' and they
will meet next week to elect of
ficers and perfect araugementsfor
inaugurating work. The diric
tory ii composed of gentlemen
along the proposed line, ex-Lieut,
Got. Humphreys, of Indepen
dence, being among the number.
The proposed lines will cover a
territory of over three hundred
miles, and as a eattle line will un
doubtedly be superior to anyroad
in the state. It is backed by
eastern capitalists who appreci
ate its importance and no pains
or expense are to be spared ia its
construction, and equipment. As
the reader will observe the same
territory ia covered that Gould
recently surveyed as far a Ar
kansas . City, the proposed line
from Wichita to Authooy being
an addition. The people along
tbo lino are enthusiastic and
plcdgo ample aid in the way of
bonds, and it is the intention to
submit proposition at tle earli
est possible moment. As loon as
the peliminsries are arrauged,
grading, bridge building, and
tracklaying will commence and
be pushed forward as rapidly as
men and money can accomp
iish tho work, the necessary
means already being pledged for
that purpose. -Anthony Kepnb

a ran.MAyT idea.
'Darius Green, "
And his Hying machine,'
to be repeated.
It is now learned that Dr. Dan
niel Ashbury's flying machine
will be given its finishing touch
es within one week, For two
years Dr. Ashbury, with. the aid
of skilled mechanic, has been en
gaged in pefectmg this idea. So
far as can be gathered from the
description of those who have en
joyed the privilege of viewing
ing its construction, about the
following idea is given of it:
The invention reverts to first
principles; as its basis. Nature
famishes the model and the
birds of the air are robbed of
the secret of their motive power
for its purpose. The body of the
invention is in shape semethicg
between a bo?t and the body of a
bird. The wings are made of can
vas and are constructed in imita
tion of a bird's wing. They meas
ure thirty feet from tip to tip.
They are made to operate, not by
working the arms, as is supposed,
but by ingenius machinery to
which a pedal is attached, and
which is worked by the foot like
a sewing machine. This is only
used when desired to ascend. As
soon as the proper altitude is
reached .he dapping of the wings
being extended on a level, the bird
machine, with the aid of propell
ers at the sides, sails through the
air at any distance desired, The
machine is nicely balanced, and if
it is desired to descend, all that is
necessary is to throw a little ex
tra weight forward to give the
beak the right inclined downward
and the; object is attained. Dr.
Ashbury's reputation as an inven
ventor is established by bis meth
of curiug tobacco, extensively
used in this State and in "Virgin
ia, and leads to a hope that his
latest idea may be a success.
