Smith Mountain R. R.
As our community has determined to
have a Rail Road, the only question re
maining for us to decide, is, which pro
posal shall' we . accept ? (, . •
It seems to us' the proposition of the
South Mountain Iron 'Co. is the most re
sonable and advantageous; in fact the
only one having a prospect of being car
ried. out. I take it, the choice must be
made between' this Company and the
In the first place the "South Mountain"
is a completed Rail Road, fully equipped
wi rolling stock sufficient to do all the
wor of transportation from Carlisle to
W nesboro, in case the road is extended.
It will not be a branch road, as your "Mi-
Tamar" correspondent says ' • but an inde
pendent road from' Waynesboro' to Car
• lisle. Here we have a reality to begin
with. On the other hand the "Miramar
R. R." exists only in name. A numher
of persons propose to build a road—their
Company was organized a year ago, but
not one shovel-ful of earth has yet been
turned, nor has a contract been let. ' At
this rate when shall we have a Rail Road
to Waynesboro built by "Miramar,"
It is essentialito us, that the Road be
built soon. Every day gained is money
saved. Orithis score there is no compar
ison between the two companies. The
"South Mountain" will iilo the • work at
once, if their proposition be accepted. The
engineer will commence the survey on
Tuesday, Aug. Bth, and will push it for
ward to Waynesboro' as rapidly as. post
ble. It is probably the Road can be
completed in one year,.
The "South Mountain" asks us to take
$150,000. seven per cent. Bonds—"Mir
=Mr" asks subscriptions for 81,60,000
Stock. There is a great difference here.
The Bonds bear.interest from the time of
paythent of the money. Stock may give
no return for years. The Bonds are a safe
profitable investment from the first. Stock
is dependent upon the earnings of the
road. The bondholders are in Chet owners
of the road, and in the event of failure in
Payments, they,take the • road and sweep
away the stock.
Another point in favor of "South Moun
tain" is the difference in distance, From
Waynesboro' to Shippensburg—the pro
posed route of "Miramar"—it is almost
as far as from Pine Grove—the present
terminus of "South Mountain"—to Way
nesboro'. Here are a. number of miles
saved and by consequence, time and mon
ey 'saved. An additional saving of freight
through the "South Mountain," will be
made by shippers from the arrangement
between the Cumberland Valley R. R. and
The South Mountain. This arrangement
yews for twenty years and in it the Cum
,berland Valley agrees to transport all the
. freight of "South Mountain', lbr 21 cents
per ton per mile. This is a great point.
It is not our intention to disparage the
'Miramar Co., or to do anything to inter
fear with their. project. But the itapor
, tont matter for this community it to have
. a ; Rail Road.; to have it built as soon as
possible ; on the most advantageous terms;
by the.shortcst and best line in order that
freights may be raved and time gained in
reaching the great commercial and indus
trial-centers. In all these respects the
"South Mountain" offers inducements
greatly superior to Miramar. . r.

about 4 miles from Hagerstown, had fal
len from the upper floor of a barn where
he was stowing hay, and had been killed.
Proceeding to thci spot, a jury was sum
moned and the following factg elicited
from the evidence produced: Shortly af
ter dinner, John Kreiner aged between
sixty and seventy-five years, went to the
barn in which he was found dead, for the
purpose ot working at something in the
hay mow, and it is supposed that it
could not have been long after he as
cended to that place when he fell, striking
his head and fracturing his skull in such
a manner that he must have died soon af
ter. •Rendering a verdict to the effect
that he came to his death as above, the
jury committed the body of the deceased
to the care of his friends.—Twice A Week.
DrrEminitso FAcr.—lt is not general
ly known, says the Gettysburg Star and

in cans had its origin in Gettysburg, as
the result of experiments made by the
late Dr. Jacobs, in the winters of .1845
and 1846. Communicated at first to a
few of his friends, the art was rapidly
made known ; so that in three years time
it had spread to all parts of the country.
Bern is a sure evidence, when you see
young men get up in church in the midst

THE NEW YORKAFTATE Crncus.—This
great circus will exhibit at Wayneiboro'
on. Saturday afternoon and evening, Aug.
12th 1871. It is without doubt one of the
best traveling 'companies known, and will
introduce many new and brfiliant features
in the circus line, which will be found to
be, in all respects, far-more novel, diver
sified and attractive, than any similar ex
hibition hitherto presented to the Ameri
can public. It -is truly said to be un
equaled in the world. The exhibition will
inclnde more and better acts. than were
ever given or can be given ; a better com
pany . of •dashing bareback riders, gym
nasts, clowns, acrobats,._ equilibrists, con
tortionists and voltigeuis than have before
appeared before the citizens of Franklin
County. This circus has excited, the cur
iosity-and wonder, and called forth the
plaudits of admiring crowds in every sec
tion of the country. • ,
larThe question is often asked, Where
should the Now School-house be built;
Now,. I believe the school' directors of
Waynesboro' are very much like other
men, and that in the choice of a site for
the New School-house they will follow the
•following general rules 'lst; Get no more
ground than the house will cover, 2d, Get
a three cornered piece of ground if possi
ble. 3d, If the ground cannot be begged,
buy the poorest, ugliest, roughest, rockiest,
swampiest, muddyiest and out-of-the-way
est place in the borough. If the house
covers all the ground it will not need to
.be fenced. By putting a house on one 'of
sites the old sites the ext generation will be
