There are, however, certain most important legal limitations on this point that it would be well for all parties to keep in vkw. My RSJollcctkiU ! that tbe road, j under the la , must be completed before Be- ccmber, lJMi, or its charter is lust and cannot be renewed, inasmuch as other charters have already been taken out on many portions of lis Due, which charters will become of rative if the South Perm legal limit as tutime is ex reeded. Even with the gKcalrst prompt r.e-s on the rotumittee's part, liarely twenty rtiotilhs are now left ill which to finish the j line entire to save its tliarier right, and as icf Engineer siiiuiik estimates that by the gnat.st d: 11 iger.ee and by working tbe largest j possible force of men cmtinuonsly J3 months will be consumed in sontpleting tlie liue. it will l apparent to ail ctjnstirvaiivti people that the two limits are already dan-p-rously dose together. I cannot, of conrse, ttll you anything regarding the rail contract. I presume, Irowever, this will be in the hands of the company, and, as three such promi nent Pittsburghers are iu the company, it is only ,lr to nip-oe that they will endeavor to bring as much bosineas to their owu town as possible." The above story ! eonflrtnfsl by the fol lowing telegram sent from Philadelphia on thr same day : " The.S.joth Penn road is go Ing to be built. Xone of the uftcials will talk tfT publication.

Mr. ttepew read one of the wes tern dispatches on the subject, and then said : - There is an admixture of troth and inac curacy in this. I will talk to yoa about it iater He then went into tlie regular meet ing of the Central road, and when seen afterwards, be said : " I do not know any thing about this. Yoa would better see some members of the syndicate.' air. Depew sub sequently added that Andrew Carnegie was working to clow the South Penn matter op, and he stated that it was not trne that Mr. Vanderbilt bad all tbe papers, as was alleg ed in the dispatches." The New York Yaw, ot Thursday, bad this to say : " There seemed to be very little ioubt in Wall street yesterday that the ar rangements which bad been reported as having been niade for the completion of tbe Sooth Pennsylvania Ilailroad really meant business. The building of the road cannov fail to have considerable influence upon oth er roads, though just how far this influence will extend it is impossible to say until it is known what areenient has been made with tisements, (liruat into irregular and unbui the Reading and Jersey Central roads, in ; ness-iike places, impress the treneral mind ftimibirt a direct western outlet fur iu f that the concern is of similar ehararter. liul coal, independent of tbe Pennsylvania, and j an advertisement in a genoral newspujier of practically forming a new trunk line from the' West to the seaboanl, which will be slorter tlian any of those now in operation.

It is unaccounta ble the prices Some men y for sticking their advertisements in irregular places. Especially is this so when compared with their unwil'injrnesi to pay anything for ad- j reniaing iu the regular channels. A Jver- l first-clasa standing, carries tlie impri-nion ; thtt the advertiser has a standing in his own . comniunity wIikH lie is Dot atraut to show to his neighbors, and that lie does not siirisik j from coinpetitiou with tlie best of ihcm. If j any one is going to a place to buy, whether j he be a trader or buying for bis own use and j j has to seek dealers thruu-jb advert isements, where will he look for tliem T To registers.
