Superior, Wis., Dec.,, 21.rNotwith-
standing the fact that only five of the
eleven steam shovels on the line of the
Wisconsin Central between here and
Lady smith are in operation. Division
Engineer Higgins states that it is ex
pected that 150,000 cubic yards of earth
will be removed the present month and
that 100,000 will be moved in January.
The amount removed during Novem
ber, was 193,000 cubic yards.
About 600 men are now at work
along the ljne and more would be added
to the force if the contractors were
able to care for them. The breakdown
in the commissary department is the
only hindrance to progress which is
now worrying the officials and plans
are now being laid lor remedying that
defect. I is announced that unless
something entirely unforeseen takes
place to prevent trains will be run to
the head of the lakes before the
of the present year.
In Douglas county considerable work
is being done. Two steam shovels are
being operated and three others will
be started shortly. One is engaged in
making a big cut near Gordon and the
others are scattered along the right of
way. The bridge-building crew is
actively at work on the long trestle

SURVEYORS GET BUST
South Shore Men Ran Line Near
Special to The Journal.
Barnum, Minn., Dec. 21.A crew of
surveyors recently arrived here and is
how engaged in running a line for the
proposed extension of the Puluth, South
Shore & Atlantic from Superior to the
Mille Lacs country. A corps of four
teen surveyors is now working north
of Moose lake.
This survey will not affect that made
last spring, which runs one mile north
of here towards Detroit. I is expected
that this line will begin from a point
on the first survey in the town of Black
Hawk, run southwest and cross the
Northern Pacific somewhere between
Barnum and Moose Lake.
Puts an Temporary Train.'
In response to demands, the St.
Louis road will put on temporary train

LOOK TJP TH E AGREEMENT
Fergus Falls. Tries to Cinch Northern
Pacific Division Headquarters.
Special to The Journal.
Fergus Falls, Minn., Dec. 21.^-The
possibility that the Northern Pacific
might remove its division headquarters
from this place, reports to that effect
having gained currency, has led to much
discussion as to whether or not the
agreement between this city and the
company by which $200,000 of the
bonds of the county were issued to aid
in the construction of the road, did not
contain a clause making it]',obligatory
upon the company to retain division
These bonds were voted by the coun
ty in February. 1881, were issued and
have been paid. The company which
constructed the road was known as the
Northern Pacific, Fergus Falls &,Black
Hills Eailway company, and this is the
company which secured the issue of
$200,000 in county bonds. The call, for
the special election at which- the bonds
were voted specified that $150,000 of
the issue /should be given in considera
tion of the construction of a line of
railway from the Northern Pacific main
line by way of Fergus Falls to Pelican
Bapids and $5.0,000 for/the construction
of a line'from Fergus Falls westward
The Pelican Bapids line was' con
structed and afterwards turned over to
the Great Western. A search of the
office o'f the register, of deeds has failed
to' bring to light any agreement where
by the company was to maintain di
vision, headquarters here.

DEMAND FOR TRADING" STAMPS
Inovation by the S. & H. Company
:-4 Meets with Popular Favor.
This is a busy time at the Sperry &
Hutchinson green trading stamp store
at 616 Hennepin. The big floor is
crowded from morning to night with
stamp collectors, who are selecting
splendid Christmas gifts. The prem
iums which are all'readvf or delivery
are most varied and attractive, and it
is no wonder that the popular "stamp"
store is crowded.
A recent innovation with the S. & H.
company is the "Sperrv'gold stamp
which appeals to a certain class of col
lectors who prefer merchandise of their
own selection from their regular trad
ing store. Books filled with Sperry
gold stamps are good for $3 at th
grocer's, the meat market, the shoe
store, the tailor in fact, any place
one may wish to trade. There are ab
solutely no restrictions. The collector
is not confined to one or two down
town stores, but a certificate is given
by the S. & H. store for a filled book,
and this certificate will bo honored for
$3 worth of merchandise at nearly
every downtown store."
For a limited time the S. &rH. com
pany is accepting in any quantity red
stamps, giving exchange for' each
stamp one S. & green or one
Sperry gold stamp.
The Sperry & Hutchinson company
was organized twelve vears ago, and
since that time has met with marvel
ous success. The company now oper
ates and owns more Scores than any oth
er concern in the world. I is well
worth while to pay a visit to the S. &
H. store at 616 Helnaepin.
