Callaway yesterday morning nnd tho
material had been there for some time.
The roadbed has had sufficient time
to settle nnd is in ideal condition for
the laying of rails, the many snows
nnd the subsequent thaws have served
their purpose in making the grades
compact while there has been but tho
one cold snap to freeze and cause the
cmbnnkmonts to disintegrate.
The track laying will be done largely
by manual labor, no largo tracklaying
machine will be used.
