ering on the Elkhora Valley route ,
extending from Blair to Long Pine

elements for successful cultivation ,
these productive lands will attract a
vast number of sotlers the coming

President Vilhvrd , of the Northern
Pacific , lias closed a contract with
Thoe. Edison for the construction of
fitty miles of railroad in Minnesota , to
test the practicability'of electricity as

built next spring , und should the ex
periment fail the greater portion of
the cost will fall upon Mr. Edison.
Thu latter is backed by strong capital
ists and is confident of success , in
which event he will receive a stipu
lated sum for the entire road. It is
probable that Iho experimental track
will bo built to St. Cloud Minne
