The Lchiili Valley RiilroAd com
pany has not ret withdrawn its cheap
rate- ticket. It U not likely lo do so
unless it U gunrsnteed au ttquitablo
buaiuose. This action on the part of
the Lehigh Valley company only af
feots lbs railroads doing business be
tween Nsw York city and Buffalo.
The regular far between the two
above cities is 1) 25, but as the Lshiffh
Valley emupany U allowed a different
ial of $1 M, the fare by this rout- i $s.
It is contended by the Lehigh Valley
people that they are willing to enter
into any contract for the maintenance
of rates, but it baa got to be on an
equitable busu, that i eaoh road to be
allotted a certain percentage of the pas
aeuger trallic, uud when one company
exceeds its quota then that company is
to be compelled to advance its pricoj.
The officer claim that the aompuny
his for many years been worked on ft
conserrative basis and the consrquence
was tbat all the competing road
charged what they liked and broke in
to the company's business. Now this
is changed and they intend to stand up
for what they consider their rights.
The new railroad betweu Pittsburg
and Fairinonut, Vst Virgiuia, wis
tlirown open to traffic Monday. The
new Hue will be known as the Fair
mount District. The distance of the
uew line between Unioutown and Fair
mount 1 . travertcd by the State Line
railroad from Uuiontonu to ths stale
boundary, and from there to Fair
mount by the l'ltiiburg, Fairmount
and Morgantowu railroad. The line
opens hundreds of square miles that
are wealthy In mineral, aud for a
mountainous country fertile. The new
line will divert to Pittsburg trade
wtick has heretofore goue to Uilti
moru, for Fairmount is now 15G milm
from Pittsburg by rail, where before it
was sevtral !.u drol mil;. It is prob
able that the Pennsylvania railroad
will try to tap this new field Boon. It
ll thought that the Pennsylvania Hue
will le extruded to Morgantown ellhsr
from Brownsville or Fairchanue. Grad
ing is likely to be commenced this sum
mer. Surveyors are said to b out at
present along one of the pronuaed Peon
ylTftuia routes. With low freight
rates west Virgiuia coal is likely to be
come u strong competitor with Hock
ing Valley coal. The West Virginia
coal lies mostly in veins doss to the
surface, making mining comtnirstivsly
easy und cbenp. At Van Vorhis, ou
the new line, there ure 10,01)0 acres of
black diamonds. At West Ban, not
lr from Morgantown, there are 23,000
acres of coil.
The freight traffic on the Pennsylva
nia railroud is gradually improving.
Since the hi'siuning of February it baa
increased 20 per cent, aud white it is
not us heavy as a year ago, it does not
show much loss when the impstus
niven to freight shipments by the Chi
cago exposition is taken into account.
While the traffic is materially heavier
than that of two years ago the receipts
huvo diminished materially besause the
depression in business has decreased
the tonnage from industries which
contributed largely to the revenue of
the great corporation, Tne tonnage
Irn ffic of the company is also Increasing
and will probubly soon reach its nor
tnal condition The compsny has dis-
churgad vciy few men on tho line be
tween Philadelphia aud Pittsburg, but
has been obliged to reduce the time of
labor from ten to eight hours to con
tinue them in employment. The uum

At the coming sheriff ail of so
much of the ub.atuloned South Penn

Somerset county the farmers who sold
rights of way through their farms will
be able to buy back the laud at one
fourth of what they received for it.
Then wus more than $1,000,000 rx
peudtd on this road before the Vander
nilts got sick of attempting oompstt-
tion in Penusylvauia aud abandoned it.
The reorganiatlinn of the Pennsyl
vania und West Virginia Railroad
company bus excited renewed interest
in that project. The proprietors have
agreed to put up 200,000 to complete
the road from this place to Cessna,
Bedford count v. und thence by the
Baltimore and Oaio railroad into West
Virginia. The road was projacted sev
eral ysaia ago, and rights of way ob
tained. The grades aud bridge abut
ments are finished. It is expected that
the line will be finished tn a year. It
will tap some of the richest mineral
aud timber lauds in the state, wiiieh

account of their distance from a rail
The new eastern passenger agree
ment recently entered into by trafflt
officials at Chicago has not been signed
by the Lehigh Valley, (irand Trunk
or Wabash. The $10,000 penalty at
tached to rate cutting or commission
payment under the agreement is cer
tain to break it. No Hn has the
slightest intention of paying inch a
penalty. If rates are cut as they are
und will be members will find means
to withdraw from the agreement be
fore thoy sail in to equallzt nutters.

Sapient Sam Boyd, of the Wilkes

Rockwell's recent letter in The Triu
DKB, remarks that "the cost of an elec

putting a price of $250, 000 on the Scran
ton plant, is about the wildest we have
met with yet. All municipalities

would in a few years pay the entire

worse. Scales would form over the sores aud then dry out until they would
crack and pop open, showing a watery matter. My skin was all like a dry
wrapper. It felt as though It hud dried on me. The scales were so bad that
they would collect In the bed aud have to be shaken out. It wus about this time
that I commenced using B. B. B. 1 was so bail that I was ashamed to lake my hat
oft before a neighbor. I had used live buttles of another medicine without noticing
any effect ; but when 1 commeuced to take B. B. B. tho sores came out thicker
than before, and they burned liko Arc ; they were immense blotches of Are that
would burn so I could not sleep. Tho way they burned aud itched can not be
told, and I hope no 0110 elso may ever know from experience. The only relief I
tould get wa9 from washiug the sores with some B. B. B.
I stuck to tho medicine and was on the fourth bottlo before I could see that I
was really better, although 1 knew that it wus better to get such rottenness out of
my blood thau to have it stay there. I did say once that I wished I bad never
commenced taking B. B. B., but my wifo encouraged me, and to-day I thauk her
fur tho advice, for 1 am in good health now. and 1 don't believe 1 ever would have
been wiih my blood in such u condition us it was.
My scalp now Is clean aud clear of all scales and tetter, and on my body there
are only small spots to show where the sores were, and these spots are free from
scales. I do not doubt but that tho cure will be perfect.
I am now on the 9ixth bottle nud will take more until every spot is gone. I
lirmly believe tbut Burdock Blood 6itter$ will cure the worst disorders of the blood,
tor sucli Certainly WM mine.
