It is reported on what seems reliable authority, that the Panhandle has secured the contract for transporting five million bushels of wheat from Chicago to the seaboard. The grain belongs to the Leiter syndicate, which has been buying wheat so extensively at Chicago. It is understood that to secure the business, the Panhandle cut the rate to ]2 cents. Countings thousand bushels for a car load, it will require 5,000 cars to transport the wheat, and counting 50 cars for each train it will require 100' trains to do the work. It is perhaps the biggest contract ever taken, by a railroad. The wheat will be shipped abroad. XMAS HOLIDAY SUPPERS! •PRESENTS- Best Patterns! Best Fabrics! Very Best Styles!
