Xew Road Nearly Com
pleted—on Paper.
The Huron & Northeastern
Railway, a proposed line from
Huron to Fergus Kalis, Minn., is
beginning to attract considerable
attention, in this part of the
state. Frank W. Henderson,
who is promoting the road, and
1j. A. Vik, the right, of-way man,
arrived in this city on Tiuirsday
and Monday a crew of survey
ors arrived here and established
headquarters, working from
this place to Wallace.
In conversation with a report
er Mr. Henderson stated that all
arrangements for the building
•of the line, and the entire right
of way had been decided upon
with the exception of that, por
tion between Wallace and Sisse
ton- The problem now before
the company is the selection of a
route between Wallace and Sis
seton, and tliev are undetermin
ed whether to build by way of
Wauba.y or Webster. If they
build to Webster they will strike
the Fainnount and Veblen at
Koslyn, but if they go by way of
Wauba.y the.y will strike the
latter line at Grenville. From
Koslyn or Grenville the.y pro
pose to run almost due east, pass
between Enemy fewim and
ckerel lakes and then turning
northeast to Sisseton. Mr.
Henderson states that it will not
require a. very heavy grade to
get onto the valley near Sisseton
but the heaviest construction
cost of the entire line will be
through the lake region in east
ern Day county and the hills in
western Roberts county.
The company's chief engineer
has been in the county the past
week and is making a close ex
animation of both the Webster
Koslyn and the Waubay-Gren
ville routes, and his decision as
to which is the most feasible and
satisfactory route will probably
be announced the last of this
week. There is general belief
that the Webster-Koslyn route
will be selected, as it will be the
cheapest and the easiest to con
struct. The route was surveyed
by Harry Hart and it was found
to present no serious difficulties.
Mr. Henderson is making no
effort to sell stock" or bonds or to
secure donations from the fann
ers who will be benelitted by the
new road. He informs us that
the project has ample capital be
hind it and that the contract for
the grading from Huron to Wal
lace has al ready been allowed to
a Chicago contractor. Work' will

The new line will strike the
following towns: Garden (.'ivy,
Wallace, Webster or \\'aubay,
Koslyn or Grenville, Sisseton,
Ellington, Wahpeton, and Fergus
Falls. The road will traverse
much country which is now
practically undeveloped, and it
must be admitted that it look's
like a good business proposition.

Mother spoke first and told father
to put the cat out of the room as
she was afraid it was going to be

could get it out. Mother then
turned around, and noticed that
the canary was dead. Mother told
father not to sit so near the stove,
as it made matters worse. Father
told mother to go smother herself.
Mother told father she thought
she was smothered already. Just
then the sei vant came in, and asked
if she could open the windows, as
the room felt very close. Father
went up stairs and changed his
