It by the way of Memphis and give all the advantages to be from said provided sold will take thirty thousand dollars stock In said fur which stock they must Issue bonds of the payable In twenty bearing per cent to be paid annually Bonds for one-half of the which la fifteen thousand are to be and delivered to the when the road Is constructed and can ore running on it and for the other half of the amount when the road Is built to the west this county If the citizens decide In favor of accepting this proposition as a forlorn there ing in the future more certain than that they will speedily

ty In five fleeting years hence The spot upon which It will stand may now be ly grown up with hoop poles and hazel brush It Is ho herculean task tor a road to bring Into being rivals and eventually wipe them out of existence Money is power We now have an opportunity of enlisting that mighty power In our favor or against ns The rood is offered to us at that and it Is optional with us to buy it or let our more enterprising do so V If the road proves as efficient in building up Memphis as other roads have in causing the rapid growth of other by the time that the interest on the whole amount of bonds will have to be there will be at least twice the amount of wealth here that there Is the burden will not be as heavy as It now net only appears to be but actually There are a few men among ns possessed of liberal minds and enterprising who wonld give one-half of the property they own rather than to have that rood the cold to Memphis Suppose all wonld willingly do and the foregoing la a correct the town would prefer giving one hundred and ty thousand instead of thirty thonaand.four times as much as Is asked to letting the road give a wide berth to Memphis That is correctly that if tho road will Increase the value of town property to it will now command The question for ua to decide and vote upon shall we purchase the at the price it Is offered or shall we take the chances and let the company construct the road on whatever line Us interests dictate The two lines have been surveyed and the difference in the cost of tying and bridging from Luray to the state 20 Is two hundred thousand the amount that the has In favor of the Johnson township route That township Is holding out strong in- have the road built through and unless we to the aa If not stronger than they will prove
