The "Oront Trunk line" Through Cairo
Bt. Louis begins to see the Importance
of the Cairo and St. Louis rallrbnd as a
link in her southern connections ; but
will this hew light that la breaking in
upon her stimulate hercltltena into a lib
eral encouragement of the project In the
s,wy of dollars and cents? The Cairo
and Bt. Louis road has claims upon Bt.
Louis for at least $250,000. A less sum.

In the work. If she will subscribe that
