Reports of work being done on the
Atlanta St Andrews Bay R R re
ceived this week are very encourag
ing A good force is at the grading
all along the line the steam shovel

intendent Dourer is right at the front
all the time and pushing the work
as fast as it can be hustled
A Y has been put in at Round
Lake and such terminal switches will
be completed there this week as will
permit o f through train s being run
from Dothan to that point It is
stated that a regular passenger and
freight service will at once be inau
gurated and trains will then run daily i
between Round Lake and Dothan
That means that we have a railway
station some miles nearer here than
before and it is probable thatmany
who have been driving through from
lower Alabama and Georgia will here
after take the train to Round Lake
and a hack from there through This
will shorten the trip considerably
