Messrs. %. IL Thompison, W. ii. Simpson, I
F. M. Hauks, T. M. Vaughan, of Ilelttl, ii
and 8. H. Balanger, of St. Louis, d rect- pl
ore for the company. This is purely a se
local organization for the purp·se of in
ducing capital or capitaliets to invest ii. o14
the building of a narrow pauge or cheat al
railroad from a potut on tied river viIa i
Benton to Lake Bodcau, thence to Oua- .a
chila alver. There has not yet teeni asI
survey profile made of the route, but It it
is located to oross the Cotton Belt and fo
St. Louis Southwestern rat road at Ben- at
ton. Luke Bodoau is from twelve to toI
fourteen miles east of Benton. Red a ivei w
is about one and a half to two miles we.i w·
making the dirtanoe from the river tu a'
the lake about fifteen or sixteen miles. a
It is estimated that with a timler rail- at
road connecting the lake a ih the river. e
600,0.00 feet of lumber and timber F.
alone can be secured for transportation. it,
Lake Bodoaubeing navigable for lumber of
and klos a distance of sixty miles, and ye
there is any amouunt of bea"lly timbhered at
laud on either side, with no outlet except at

pr oilpal promoters of the scheme, as- pf
