_The irrepressible Dr. C. L. Randall, oí Daneville, is never likely to lose nis interests in the growth and prosperityr of Dansville and Ingham county. Aljthougli about to remove to Chicago, he is aow tryiag to work a railroad enterprise tliat H 1e of great valué to this section. While Ín Ann Arbor, last week, he laid before the superintendent of the Ann Arbor and Ypsilaiiti street railway company a proposition to extend that road to l.ansing via Descter, Unadllla, Plainfleld, Dansville and ilnsn. Tlie superontendent promised to lay the matter before the railroad batidera Tlit.' íirst of the week a.nd lel the loi1 fe iow the resalt at an early date. He saya they can move frelght as niiicli cheaper than the other roads a they do passengere which they are now carrying at a profit at one cent per mlle. Masón News. It is our opinión that it ivill be but rf íew yeairs whon these little roads will be running in every directíon and will do four-fifths of the local traífic business. The railroads of to-day care very little Tor the wants of the smaller towns unless they are on competing Unes, as every village knows. They work only for through business, knowing that the traffic along their lines must come their way. The mau in a village who gives a dollar towards the building of one of those roads begiais kicking himself soon after it is built and continúes to do so as long ae he lives. The only way to pet suitable accommodation is h-ont roads working for local business. -
