The Marion papers state hat the interurban lines there are, putting in the "Bonner rail, "and of curse that will be introduced on the Richmond lines when they are in full bloom, if it proves a success there. By this system, which is for freight service, the farmer is provided with a wagon with broad tires which is loaded and drawn bv horses to the side of the track. Here the wagon bed slides off the wheels on a truck that runs on the rails and is coupled right to the train. The advantage is that long hauls by team to the depots are avoided and there is no expense of reloading. The corn, wheat, even live stock, is shipped on the rail in the same wagon bed in which it was originally loaded, saving time and trouble. By this arrangement the farmer living many miles from town can . rcaeh . the market at the same time as : one living nearer the market. . The wagon bed slips off the truck wheels. to the wheels lor ordinary use, or on to toe trucks. iaa may be desiretLl The wjropf jk.KeUej.diose also to be used for shipment of mer chandise bv store keepers. The com pany at Marion propose to make store collections and deliveries with its own teams without added cost, It proposes to do for freight trans portation what electric lines have done for passenger transportation.
