The weather permitting the track will be laid iato Sturgis between the tenth and fifteenth of October. It was the in tention to increase the force this week in order to lay one and a half miles per day. After this extension is ironed the crew of track layers "will be returned to the Wyoming Central, and the iron laid to Glenrock, which will be the terminus this winter. The town at that place was platted last week, and the sale will oc cur upon the completion of the road to that point. Glenrock is about thirty five utiles west of Douglas. The Terminus. It the intention of the Northwestern Stage company to run their coaches this winter between Sturgis and this city. The road is considered to be a superior ono, less heavy grades, and no further than from this city to Selbie. The railr road company will make Sturgis a ter minus point for freight and passenger for the up-creek country for the winter. This is reliable. The above is from a current number of the Deadwood Times, and is sub stantially the same as Mr. Gidley said to the ADVEBTISEH the other day. Prac tically this mak«s Sturgis the terminus at the ro?.d as has been claimed by this paper from the beginning. Consequent ly this place will enjoy a lively business daring the winter months, meantime building up a trade that will not vanish with the ootning ethereal mildness of gentle spring. The prospect of another town being1 ushered into existence in the Hills coun try is faint, indeed. It cannot be built without the aid of local capital, and as not a few of our Blaiek Hills friends have bad an unenviable experience with boom railtoad towns it will require something store than the Western Town Lot com pany can offer to inveigle them into these unquestionable snaps.
