Freight tram 91, on tbe Wabash, westbound, covers 342 miles in six teen hours, which the Wabash people claim is tne fastest scheduled train for such a distance in the country. The man Ed Williams, a coal miner, who was struck by a Vandalia freight train Monday night, was not killed. He was taken to Terre Haute and placed in a hospital. Despite the denial of General Manager Ramsey, that his road will not build a line from Toledo to Montpelier, surveying parties are locating such a line, and when built it will, it Is thought, be utilized by tbe Wa bash for a Toledo-Chicago line. It is announced that tbe Wabash will soon begin to run freight trains as well as passenger trains through sumed by the City National bank. The transfer to the City National was made in good faith. All the newspapers and people of this city done everything they could to assist in organizing the new bank. It seems to be left to a lawyer, who has nothing due, him, to say that it was a fraudulent transaction. The facts, as the bank insists, are these: The State National bank had a judgment at Columbus against Samuel P. Hege from Detroit to Grand Trunk, and Joseph Irwln . McCormick; also and had P.

Objection was made by plaintiff's attorneys, Hale & Gamble. "Shore Acres" and "The Hearthstone" should go hand in glove, having been written by the same author, James A. Herne. There have been mauy bright and fascinating comedy and domestic dramas written, but none equal In point of interest and beauty to "The Hearthstone."
