As we have stated time and again, railroads bring prosperity, increases valuations of land, gives us cheaper freight rates, builds up dilapidated towns, gives employment to hundreds of idle men, increases the population of our small towns and gives us more enterprising men. This fact is clearly demonstrated by our little town. Just on the mere hope of a railroad two enterprising young men have located, and we hope permanently, in our town. One with Dr. and Mrs. J. G. Taylor and the other with our genial deputy clerk of court, T. J. Breed and wife. These young men’s cares, trials and tribulations date back from Monday and Tuesday, respectively. May they prosper.
