(Si Oi ?In Monk (arollunt A special from Richmond last night says: Judge Minor, of the Law und Equity Court, this morning appointed Colonel T. M. R. Talcott, assistant to President John Skelton "Williams, of the Seaboard Air Line System, received for the Farmvllle nnd Powhatan railroad. The bond was lixed at $10,000. The Southern, has Issued one of the most complete railroad maps In exist? ence. It has been carefully uruanged from latest surveys and shows not only, the Southern's system, but also con? nections and the routes of competing lines. All points on the lines are care? fully indexed.' THE R., P. AND C. Rails on the Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina railroad have been laid from Butterworth's, Dlnwlddle county, to the Nottoway river, nnd the con? struction -train is now running to the riven. In Chesterfield county Just across the Appomattox river from Petersburg, in the vicinity of the Virginia Normal nnd Collegiate Institute, the railroad company has a large steam shovel at work. The grading of the Richmond end of the line of the road is going on quite vigorously. It Is said, that in all there are about fifteen hundred men nt work on the road. The contract for all the station buildings has been awarded and the bridge building is go? ing on rapidly. "Lack of stone Is the groat difficulty encountered In the construction of our road," said Colonel T. M. It. Talcott yesterday, speaking of the work ot constructing this line. "It is Impossible for the contractors lo get it. At one or two points wo have been forced to ure brick Instead. You would not think to ride through the territory through which the road Is being built that there Is such a thing as stone. There Is plenty of It, but the quarries have not been opened. However, I think the supply will soon, In a measure, at least, equal the demand." NEW CARS FOR C. AND O. The last of the order of the Chesa? peake 'and Ohio railway for fi,000 new freight cars Is now being received. This gives this road about 17.000 cars, -and yet there is a scarcity of them, owing lo tin; immense increase In the freight traffic. Resides tho dearth of cars there Is a scarcity of locomotives and the six? teen new engines now building at the Richmond Locomotive and Machine Works are expected to be in service by January 1st, JOIK). The company has also let a contract to the Pullman Palace Car Company for the construction of eight new parlor cars for their V. F. V. trains. These cars will bo seventy feet in length anil modern In every detail. They will be ready for service by January 1st of next year. After November 1st the cars which arc now being used in the F. F. V. trains will be turned Into the Pull? man shops at Wilmington,Del., for com? plete overhauling. ' Til 10 CHARLOTTE AND DURHAM. The Raleigh Post of yesterday says: ??Major W. A.

About half the people ! know carry one of those 5-cent cartons ail the time in their vest pockets. 1 was in the Bowery Savinps Bank to draw some money, and while 1 was waiting in the line a clerk came, up to the paying teller and said : "Give me a Ripans !" The teller took a carton out of his pocket and handed it to the clerk, who took out one of the Tabutes and handed the carton back. Then J watched him and saw him go to the water cooler and swallow the Tabule with some water; I saw him tip his head back. it's just wonderful how everybody takes them.
