The following letter was re
ceived last week too lite for
There .are", now about one
hundred and lorty men at work
in the machine shops on six
hour's time. - The report Is that
they will be put on eight hoars
lime next Monday.
, The Ztleaki Company has
about sixty hauds employed in
the mines . at this place and
Coilmont. They mine about
six thousand bushels of coal
per day on an average.
A Presbyterian church has
been organised in our town.
They .worship in a hall fitted
up in the rearot Mr. Robison's
Jtore. Rev. J. A. Pulx is their
The Melholfsts recently
omitted f ervicesin their church
a tew Sabbalbs for lear the
building would fall down, but
have commenced worshiping
there again.' Many have con
sidered the building unsafe for
a long time. Three years ago
one end of it blew out. It was
repaired and has been used
ever Since. About a month
ago while the janitor was ring
ing the 'bell, a large piece 0
plastering lell and broke a hole
through the floor. . Many con
sidered this an additional rea
son for cousideiing the build
ing unsafe, and a committee
was appointed to look into the
matter. They found lhat each
ot the two side walls had
6prung outward about three
inches and they had no best
tancy,in pronouncing the
building dangerous. Notwith
standing tbis fact services have
bee.n resumed as already stated.
Sooie persons who seem to
know say bat the building is
entirely Sie nd we hope they
are right. bV'ore that" sad dis
aster occurred in Syracuse the
people were also divideJ in
their opinions a t the ifel'
of their building aud the truth
was not reached until 1 he
church fell and killed several
persons. The writer believe
in being on the safe ' ride, and
does not like, to risk his neck
in the hnuKe. .
On Sa'urrfay evening the
Board of Education employed
their teachers for the coming
It is a very unpleasant Fact
lhat we have a great deal of
ague in our midst This could
not be otherwise, for the im
pure water in the pond at the
depot alone is sumrient to
makes large city shake"
Since our village is not incor
pnrated, it is useless Tor any
one 10 attempt to rid the town
of this nuisance. We honest
ly believe, however, that th
doctor bills which have been
occasioned by this body of im
pure water during the ptst tn
vearb would be sufficient to
remove ihe evil. We hope to
see our village incorporated
so that meisures maybe ta
ken to improve the sanltaiy
condition of our town when
ver there is an occasion for it
Our town will then become
more attractive and it will be
a benefit to our citizens in a
pecuniary point ot view. '
