The engineers, undt. Chief Onder
dunk, had located the road to the
h?ad of Town Creek, a point ueat
the foot of Co<ks F-:iob, at Key-',
which it was thought would be the
line of road. It was found, however,
that when {hat point was reached
they were at an al titude of 109 feet
and that they had a v-. ry heavy grade
alltheway from Martinsville. Con?
sidering this fact, together with
the very heavy grade they had
to contend with they were ob?
liged to make an elbow of at
least two miles by this route by
Keys, and the further fact that a
quantity of heavy troweling had to
be done on the route. The engineers,
in casting about for a cheaper ana
better roiite, had the ^ood fortuno to
discover it. This rou'e lies between
the Bitch and Che?*nut mountains
and will throw the direct line of road
by way of Rocky Mou nt on an easy
grade and will, Major Onderdunk
6ays, save the compai'Kthousands of
dollars in cost of cerTsmtci ion ovei
the route by way of K^ys' and in ad?
dition will shorten the route four
miles. 4
This almost insure the road to

An Important Correction.
For a week or more past report
has been in circulation to the cirect
that Mr. 1). W. FHckAvir had resigned
his position as general superintendent
oi tin- Shenandoah \ alley railroad.
This is not a fact. Ou the contrary,
Mr. Flickwir is still the incumbent
of thatoflice, rn consequence of the
great increase in the business of the
road, it became necessary to separate
the management into two divisions,
tlw Qrst section l?t im* from Racers
twn to Milnes. and the second from
Milnes to Roanoke. By this action
flu- following change- were made:
Mr. J.W. Cook, the former train?
master of the road, was made train
master of the firs* division; Mr. T. S.
Bransford, formely auditor of the
road, was made trainmaster of the
second division; Mr. Walter Maedow
?!!. formerely chief clerk to Joseph
\V. Coxe, auditor of toe Norfolk and
Western railroad, was nnuh- acting

A Tim ES man took a drive, ye;
terday over ji part of the route of tha
dummy line to Salem with Mr. George
0. Houston, the contractor who is do?
ing the work.
In the last two wet ksgreat progress
has been made, and us soon as th s
rails arrive the work, will be pushed
forward with greatei vigor than ever.
The delay in the arrival <>r the iroji
from Johnstown litis ;>ut the COntrai -
tor to a good deal ol trouble. Fora
distance of two miles from Melros^
Driving Park the ties .are laid, and
for a mile the road is ballasted solidly
with rock. The road has been graded
some distance bey.aid the poiai
where the ties have been placed. Tin
rails are expected her:: tomorrow, and
the work of laying them will be com
menced at once. Carpenters are no>
busy preparing the heavy timbers fo ?
the bridges, and it will not belong
before the people o! Roanoke am
Salem will be able 10 call on each:
q}her any number of times they wish.
The scene of this little farce was ;u
the Union Denot, ate! the period yes?
terday evening just before No. I;

policeman, was moving in three d:t
ferent directions at once to kee;
loafers of! the platform, and Join
Pack, the ticket aircnc. was so bus}
selling tickets .and answering ques
tions that the perspiration stood out
on bis forehead in great beads.
Presently there entered the recep?
tion room ;i six-foot colored woman
wearing a colored dress and colored
spectacles, and asked in the language
peculiar to a colored person:
"Say, Mr. Ticket Agent, what if
the fare to Salem?'*
"Twenty cents, second-class, am!
twenty-live first class. 1
"Well, den, what d<> it cost to go hi
de niggers car?*1
"Twenty cents.''
"How come datv Sarah Brown, dai
lives on Peach and Honey, sed she
didn't pay but ten cents when sin
went to Salem day "fo" yi-terday."
"Can't help what Sarah Brown
said> The fare is twenty cents."
"Dat's mighty precurious."
"1 guess 1 know more about thai
than you or Sarah Brown either.
The fare is twenty cents, and has
been that all the time."
