Not Yet In Operation.—The stone crusher on Daniel Williams’ place, along the P. & W. C. Railroad, in Charlestown township, is not yet in operation. Messrs. Steen & Johnson, the proprietors, have all the other buildings erected, and expect to have the stone crusher at work. In the meantime the men having the ironing of the road in charge are ballasting a portion of the road between Beaver's and Frazer with small stone that have been picked from the fields of the farmers residing alone the road.
