' On or about the year 1855 a company

built In 1877 another proposed road was
commenced and after bleeding the citi
zens in the sum of $15,000 it proved a
failure. And now comes tke third Jain
boro. Men and teams arrived in town
lant week to work upon a line called the
Pittsburgh, Akron & Western. It is stated
that the road is located to the west line
of the corporation. One good point is to
be gained for the village in case this line
Is abandoned. The bed can be converted
into a streetcar line and the city cooler
