The prospects are good for the early
completion of a new railroad in West
Florida. It extends from Marianna,
Jackson county, to Blountstown, in Cal-

thirty miles in length when completed,
and will pass through 200,000 acres of
fine timbered lands, over 20,000 acres
of the lands having been bought by the
firm of Pennington & Evans who will
establish a sawmill on the above road
and manufacture lumber.
