J. G. Trindlo of Liberal Kansas
ulvll engineer and for years engaged
in railroad surveying' with his assist-
ant James Calvert nnd n number of
helpers from Beaver commenced a
survey of tho stub lino of railroad from
Beaver to a connection with the W. F.
& N. W. Hallway on tho North Flats
Monday as reported by the IIebalu
Three preliminary lines havo been
run either of which could well bo uti-
lized but as yet It has not been de-
cided which 1 the most practical and
no permanent line has been establish-
ed. It has been ascertained that a
route may bo found wheroby the road
may be constracted at a less than one
per cent grade which In railroading
it considered most favorable. A route
through the Sand Hills haB also been
found not to be such an Insurmount-
able obstacle as many seemed to be-
lieve nnd Bince the survoy has been
made it has been provon that such a
project is both practical and feasible
nnd the actual work of construction
will commence right aiay. Contractor
Ihompson of Balko a" railroad con-
tractor who knows tho business
from tho least to the greatest end of
It and who has superintended tho build-
ing of hundreds of miles of road will
have chnrgo of the construction work
and a full force of men and teams will
bo kept at work from tho day the first
dirt flies until tho last rail is spiked to
the tie and the great steel horse comes
snorting down among our beautiful
picturesque hills into tho serono valley
of the Beaver and up to the very door
of our little city where an anxious
long-suffering public will stand on the
threshold to bid It and the attendant
prosperity and development which will
inevitably follow welcome thrice wel-
come to our city
Evorjbody Is Jubilant over tho pros
pect of securing tho long-coveted road
and with one accord nre boosting for
the good work for all that is In them.
This seems to be ono time when every-
body is willing to throw In together
and work in unison Tho people in
the country have Joined hands with
those in town and It looks like they had
marle up their mind to make one migh-
ty effort to make things movo and it
Much stock is being subscribed both
In oish and labor and if things keep
up in the way they havo been going
the past week everybody within a
marketing radius of Beaver is going
to get his shoulder to the wheel and
Many farmers aro buying stock lib-
erally which they expect to pay for in
labor and now Is just the time when
they can do this to tho best advantage
for they have no work on the form and
ttiord U no demand for labor 'in other
sources They and tholr teams are
idle and they are anxious to invest in
some railroad stock in this way for
they look upon It as a good Investment
as well as an uutold benefit.
Provision is being made to supply
feed and grain for teams nnd board for
the men by tho Construction Company
aud thus many who would otherwise
be unable to work out stock onacoount
of lack of money to pay expenses will
be able to do so.
The ball is started rolling In tho
right direction. Let us keep her going
BEAVER HDW. & FURN. CO.
hy Not Plant Trees.
Tho time will soon be right for plant
ing out trees and shrubbery
not let the residents of Beaver get
together and mako extensive plans
along this line. With a little effort
and a very llttlo expenso our city
could be wonderfully improved by
setting out nlco trees along our streets
and around our public buildings. It
we will do this individuals will be
constrained to improve and beautify
their own property and homo grounds
and in a very short time Indeed Bea-
ver will bo converted into a veritable
"Garden of Roses." What ono has
doiid others will do and the spirit of
civic improvement is tlm most conta-
gious malady in the world when it is
once gotten well under way. We all
do pretty much as wo are led. Why
not bo led to do sometliinc really
worth' nhlleV Whd will take hold of
this and seo that nc do plant trees?

tended articlu from the Clear Lake
correspondent in reply to a letter
published In this paper from Wm. J
(tenner of Ivanhoe sooretary of the
Beaver County Broomcorn Growers'
Association We refrain from pub-
lishing it fur the roason that wo do
not deem it of sufficient Importanoo
and interest to the majority of our
readers and for the further reason that
it could serve no cood purpose wero it
published but rather engonder further
strife and aggravated controversy
whlah would go on and on nnd con
sume much spaoe which could better
be used to boost for the Interest of
Heaver county farmers and tho things
thnt aro host for them.
By an oversight the first article In
this discussion crept. Into the Heiuld's
columns through the Clear Lake items.
Since it wiis given publication it woa
no more than fair that thn aggrieved
party be given an opportunity to reply.
Wo accordingly gavo Mr. Bonner's
letter space but so far as wo are con-
corned wo now consider the matter
closed aud if those Interested desire
further space they may procure it at
the regular rato charged all adver-
tisers which is D cents per line six
