Oettinger'8 Double Front Cloth lllR fl. r '' t0 —How soon will the Northwestern railroad build abridge over Rock river at this point, and run a branch line to Spring Valley? The company's coal mines are at Spring Valley, and now most of the coal used on the western branches is hauled via DeKalb and west through here. If the line were built straight south from here, a distance of forty or fifty miles would be saved in all coal shipped west. Furthermore, if the branch ia built, a large amount of Rock Falls business would be'gained.and the lowering of£the price of'soft coal would greatly increase the amount of coal used for manufacturing purposes, and would increase the number of manufactories using steam power. Sterling and Rock Falls are going to grow very rapidly, and it will pay the road to make the extension at. once.
