The grading outfit is camped on the Fribley lots in the southwest rart of the citv. and work is be ing done in the new yards of the company at present. '1 he graa? in? is oracticallv completed from Miami to the state line, and it is not coiner to take very long to finish the grade from the state line to a connection with the Frisco in the north part of town. We understand Mr. Kenefick says he will have trains running into Baxter Springs by Novem ber 1st. Of course he will have to go some to do this, but he wants to get as much work done as possible before bad weather sets in. We have not vet learned whether Joplin is going to make paaA in civiner the company what it wants at that place, but if Joplin falls down on the prop osition it is not hard to guess that the road will build direct to Pittsburg, which town has a very live board of trade, ana never falls down on anything for the good of the town.
