The store news from this great establishment leads even the War bulletin boards in interest. Last week the Lafayette Bridge co., secured a s9,500 Bridge con act for the construction of the lick incr River at Poi i a Wabash system. People who live along the lines of the Wabash system realize that none of the great railway lines of the country furnish More thorough or better train service. It has always been the most capable Inan aged the Best equipped and the most accommodating of roads and there has been nothing lacking to maintain the highest place in the popular esteem of lie people this new move of he management will add still further to the achievements and reputation of the Road. It is the announcement of putting on anew ast train to connect the system with new York the objective of All roads leading to any part of he East. The train is to be called by the appropriate title of the Quot Continental limited Quot and is to run from st. Louis to new York via Peru Detroit and suspension Bridge it will be one of the finest and fastest trains traversing the Central and Eastern states and will reflect in every detail the superiority of the Wabash system. The Road did a great thing when it extended its lines from Detroit to Buffalo and this announcement of a train to go still farther and reach the great Metropolis of the country shows the progressive and enterprising spirit that is now in control. The relaying of the track with eighty Pound steel and the Purchase of the monster new locomotives the finest in the country now explain themselves As part of the far seeing policy with which the Wabash is b managed. With the men in control of the executive department and those of the operating and traffic departments together with the perfect equipment and discipline it is plainly evident that the Quot Continental limited Quot will be the finest and most talked of train in the count y from the first week of its running just As the fast mail train from Toledo to st.

Bettie Ridge Over Butler Lucky. Pendleton county Ken Wall i kicks. During the civil War Corn was $2 a Bushel wheat �3.50, Wool $1.10 a Pound Cotton 81.90 a Pound Anthracite Coal $15 tier ton flour l>12 per barrel and butter 60 cents per Pound. With the exception of Cotton however none of the prices was due really to Scarcity of products. None of the Northern towns were besieged As was Paris in 1870, shutting off Access to necessities and none of the Northern Fields were ravaged by sword or fire. Production North of the Potomac went in pretty much As usual. The enormous increase in prices was the result of an inflated and discredited currency which fluctuated sharply and incessantly. No one could Tell what the paper Dollar he held today would be Worth tomorrow. The government had no Gold with which to redeem its notes and every reverse to the Union army served to Send Doton the value of the notes measured in Gold and to increase prices All around. In july 1864, the value of these notes in Gold touched 35 cents. The Rule of wheat. A of it is very difficult for a a pub Licau or a sound Money Democrat to mention the Price of wheat right now without making the free Silver Man who overhears him think immediately that he is talking politics. Nevertheless the preview desires to say a few More things concerning the Price of wheat for the edification of those who less than two years ago adhered to the belief that wheat and Silver were inseparable companions bound together by an indissoluble tie. Last week May wheat went to is .85 in the Chicago Market. At the same time mexican dollars bearing upon them t be stamp of a free Independent and according to the arguments of the Silver men prosperous nation sold in the Market for less than 45 cents and bar Silver brought Only 55 cents an ounce. It was one of the contentions of the late prof. Harvey of the great institution of general and practical economics. Coin s financial school that the Price of an ounce of Silver varied Only slightly from the value of a Bushel of wheat and that As Silver went Down wheat necessarily went Down with it. The review does not expect to convince any Silver Man of the fallacy of his pet theory by the presentation of these facts. Silver men never did have much respect for facts anyhow. But there is a certain pleasure found in calling attention to them. Look for bargains at Luppold s bargain counter. girls for general House work at new Falls House.
