But fanners liv- ing along its line would have -to stretch their imagination, like India rubbc-r. One of the head officials has a farm out some six miles, and for his own especial use, ran a spur out from the main line and had plenty of empty cars on it to haul his own, grain away. But he no sooner got his own hauled, than he immediately pulled the spur track up again and let the rest of us haul our grain to town. What ever harm that spur could have done to have remained a few weeks, beats me. it is an utter impossibility to obtain cars to haul our grain away.
