enterprising--yet careful; its Trains fast--yet safe and comfort-
able; its Employees highly trained--yet polite; its Equipment
modern--yet sightly; its Road-bed solid--yet not productive of
fatigue to him who journeys over it.

The general desire of reading people to be
informed with regard to the social, mercantile and manufacturing interests
of our country, our vast territorial extent, the distance that separates
