The engineers began laying out
the ground for the new depot this
morning, and setting the stakes for
the change in the siding.
The new building will be erected
about fifty feet south of where the
old one stood, and will be a two
4tory, handsome building. A plat
form five hundred feet in length
anil eighteen feet wide will extend
along the track from the depot the
building being at the center of the
There 1ms, iu the years gone by,
ken a great deal of kicking by peo
ple who have had occasion to come
into and go out of the city on the
Turner load which crossed the
track, by courtesy of the railroad
company, just south of the depot, at
delay occasioned by trains standing
on the crossing, and, a day or two
since, some plucky granger drove
upon the switcli crossing directly
in front of the yard locomotive,
which was approaching, threaten
in" to stay there until that train
standing n the main track, and
blocking the crossing, should "get
out of the way" and let him pass.
He thought better of it, however, as
the yard engine continued to move
towards him, and he drove oil' the
track, and, simply following in the
footsteps of the lamented "Wllkins
Jlicauber, proceeded to "wait for
something to turn up," or for the
train to get out of his way.
These travelers o'er the road, and
very likely a great many citizens of
Salem, will bo surprised to learn
that this crossing has only been al
lowed to exist through the courtesy
of the railroad company, and that
theie is no public street or highway
between State and Leslie street (the
latter not opened), and between 12th
and 14th streets.
Ordinance No. 74, approved
August 9th, 1870, reads as follows :

The new platform at the depotwill
lompletely shut oil' this crossing,
and will compel the seeking of
.mother route into the city, probably
via 14th street to State and in that
ay. Having the welfare of the
tity of Salem ever uppermost in his
thoughts and work, and desiring
that the tax payers of the city
should know all that was worth
knowing concerning the matter, the
writer made an eye survey of what
will probably be the nowhigliway

Women in Huslm-i-s
Iii this ago of extremo activity
and wonderful development, it is a
noteworthy fact that many women
have made their own way In mer
cantile life, and successfully com
pete with men In many lines of
business. Women, whether they
labor iu the household or in tho
store, are all liable to suffer from
functional derangements and tho
cares ot maternity. For all troubles
known under the catgory of "fe
male weaknesses," Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription is a tonic and
tried specific. It lelieves t lie great
est sufferers, and restores tho patient
to vigorous health and strength. It
is tho only medicine for women, sold
by druggists, under a positive guar
antee, from tho manufacturers, that
it will give satisfaction in every
case, or money will be refunded.
This guarantee has been printed on
the bottle-wrapper and faithfully
carried out for many years.

tion, biliousness, sick headache, bil
ious headache, and all derangements
of the stomach, liver and bowels.
A Woman's Discover.
"Another wonderful discovery hus
been made and that too by a lady in
tills county. Disease fastened its
clutches upon her ami for seven
years she withstood its severest tests,
but lior vital organs were under
mined and death seemed imminent.
For three months she coughed inces
santly and could not sleep. Mio
bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption and
was so much relieved on taking
first dose that slie slept all night and
with one bottle has been miraculous
ly cured. Her namo is Mrs. Luther
