that Wilmington will give a free site
for the warehouse, and will take 2E
per cent-of the capital stock neces

at Troy for the past several day cut
veying a route for the main line o
the Norfolk Southern baa convinced I
great number of the Troy citizen
that the main line of this railroad wll

now that main line will go direct fron

Atlanta, Ga. The farmers of the
South made gratifying progress In de
veloping rural telephone systems dur

of the Southern Bell Telephone com

On December 31, 1911, there were

West Virginia 6,507
Of these telephone 7,775 were add
ed during the year 1911, an Increase
of 30 per cent, over the year 1910.
A feature of particular value to the
farmers was instituted during the
past veer through the co-operation of
the United States weather bureau and
the telephone company. The dally
weather reports are furnished to the
telephone company every day, and at
a given hour in the morning the re
port is read to the subscribers on
every rural line. Farmers who can
not respond to the signal may call
the operator at any time and secure
' Practically every section of the
South Is covered with rural telephone
line, and It Is possible for farmers In
remote places to communicate quick

growth has been rapid, but telephone
experts declare that rural telephone
development in the South Is In its In
fancy and a greater growth Is antic
ipated during the year 1912.

Postmaster General Hitchcock at the

Governor Hadley's support bad been
counted upon by political adviser of
