IF one were talking in fables this might be called the fable of the Physician, the Lawyer, and the Business Man.

IN 1890, nothing. In 1907, four thousand one hundred miles of railway in operation; six hundred under construction; and two thousand more surveyed; the whole absolutely controlled by two men. Herein is a record that would be remarkable in the United States.By John V. Borne in System Magazine11 min
LATE in the winter of 1811, Tom Norton returned to his humble home in the Long Reach Settlement from Adolphustown, at which place he had been employed during the fall and early winter months.
