W. F. SchatT, Assistant Division
Superintendent of the Franklin division
of the Lake Shore road, announced that
both passenger and freight tralllo on
the new Franklin & Clearfield road
would be commenced on Sunday, Sept.
20th. Even more important than the
date la the announcement that there
will be two through passenger trains
each day between New l ork and Chi
cago. The time of these trains will be
announced within a few days. There
will also be one through freight train
and a local freight train between
Franklin and Brookville
These trains were decided upon defi
nitely at a meeting of the Lake Shore
officials in Cleveland on Wednesday,
Mr. SchaiT being present. The through
trains will cot supplant any through
trains on the New York Central sys
tem via Buffalo, but are entirely new.
That they will become popular, how
ever, is highly probable, for the new
, route Is seventy miles shorter than the
present one, Franklin being on an air
line between New York and Chicago.
The through passenger trains will
stop at Franklin to receive and dis-
charge passengers. Franklin, Stone
boro and Andover, the two last named
being junction points, are the only
places at which the trains will stop on
the old Franklin division. Arrange
, ments are being made for a train ser
vice from Oil City to Franklin to con
nect with these through trains. . It is
not certain that the through trains will
make any stops on the completed por
tion of the Franklin & Clearfield line.
What stops will be made beyond Rose
Siding 'is likewise undetermined, al
though there will probably be service
?to and from Brookville, Reynoldsville,
and Falls Creek on the low grade. The
Only towns of any consequence between
Falls Creek and Clearfield are DuBois
and Curwensville, and it is uncertain
about any stops being made there.
Some sort of passenger Bervice between
Franklin and Rose Siding will prob
ably be provided before the line is very
long In operation. Franklin News.

The Editor's Duty.
Sometimes a country newspaper faces
the proposition and finds it bard to put
aside personal feeling and do its duty to
its patrons. The city editor is seldom
bothered by personal friendship; bis
sympathy Is general, as it were, but
the element of intlmaoy is lacking.
The country editor knows everybody.
Els neighbor's burt is something he
feels, it la to a certain extent his own.
As a matter of fact the country editor
bears many a burden of his constituents.
He is acquainted with their sorrows, he
knows their troubles better than any
Almost every week, he would, if he
consulted his feeling alone throw some
little item of painful Import Into the
waste basket, just as he would now and
then stir up a Btorm by revealing some
hidden folly. Then once in a while he
gets in wrong and somebody's risibilities
But after all, there's just one guiding
principle. News that Is true, clean and
not printed maliciously is legitimate.
That It hurts sometimes, is unfortun
ate. If it serves as a warning, as a les
son to youth, or parents, or to the vio
lators of the law, there is ample justifi
cation for its publication. If It is Inde
cent or unsavory, if it be in Its nature
an appeal to the baser passions, nothing
can justify its publication. Wellsboro
Swartz Sj kes Wedding.
Miss Lou Sykes and Edward Swartz

tives present. The young couple left

The bride is an accomplished musician,
daughter of G. W4 Sykes, of SykeB
Woolen Mill Co., and Mr, Swartz Is a
son of John Swarzt, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
manager of Buffalo Pitts Agricultural
Works. Mr. and Mrs. Swartz will re
side in Buffalo. The good wishes of a
host of friends go with them.
The Town Council will receive Bealeu
propositions from the owners of real
estate situate In the borough of Reyn
oldsville for the sale of a lot of ground
suitable for the erection thereon of a

to reject any or all propositions.

Brookville & Mahoning Will
Cost About $80,000 a Mile
$3,000,000.00 TO COMPLETE
Bids were closed Saturday for the
construction of the Brookville & Ma
honing railroad. The estimated cost of
constructing the new road is $3,000,000
and It will be thirty-six miles in length.
There will be one large bridge across
the Allegheny river, several smaller
bridges and trestles, also six tunnels.
On account of the number of bridges,
trestles and fills necessary to the con
struction of the new road, the estimated
cost is said to be between $75,000 and
$80,000 per mile. The necessary funds
have been provided and the wora- la ex-
peeved to start soon. Contract was
awarded September 8th. .
The Brookville & Mahoning railroad
will extend from Brookville, Pa., to
Mahoning, along the Allegheny river,
and will be operated as a part of the
Pittsburgh, Sbawmut and Northern.
It will pass through rich coal and tim
ber tracts and eventually will be
come a link on an important
freight line between Pittsburgh and
Buffalo. Independent capitalists are
said to be back of the big project, and
eventually tbe road may be sold to the
Pittsburgh, Sbawmut & Northern.
All sortB of reports are being circula
ted at the southern terminus of the line.
It will bring the Pittsburgh, Shawmut
& Northern 30 miles nearer Pittsburgh,
but as Mahoning is an unimportant
point along the river, where compara
tively little tonnage originates, It is
slated positively that the extension
will not end there. About a year ago,
when the first surveys were made for
the new line the promoters offered to
sell the road to the Pittsburgh, Shaw
mut & Northern when completed, pro
vided tbe builders would make an
agreement with the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company for an interchange of
t radio with the Buffalo & Allegheny
Valley division. Officers of the Sbaw
mut road stated positively at that time
that unless the agreement was made
with the Pennsylvania they would not
conneot up with the new link. Wheth
er or not such an agreement was made
with the Pennsylvania could not be
learned yesterday from officials of tbe
latter, nor local capitalists Interested
in the enterprise. Kittanolng Times.
