We Must Make Up.
There is no doubt, that with a bridglg
over the mansh awar I.. e Tame, atnd
OmIover Bay .u SClair would tend tol
enhance the bulanes of this town many
thousands of dollars. Why with the
knowledge of the beefits that w..uld
follow this Iha not long ago been done,
is an enigma we are not prep tre to
solvelw. The people of these respective
srighb'rho ds are anious to do, their
trading here; and, it snems to us that
self-late est shoull fiod a way to offer
them means to do o. Ewvry year trade
which pr'perly belongs to ua. iq being
diverted into other channels, and no f
feot is made to cheek it. The fact is
palladle that business is a:ot increasing
with us; itf we are not retrograding we
are not advancing; and, worse than all,
our neighbors are prospering-if we
can judge by surface inlicatiols. Now,
to regain, what is ours, we must open
p all avenues to afford full egress and
iagress to and trom this town; we must
take oil chances ofebring and make the
moea of our opportunities. The state of
lethargy and apparent indifference must
be east asid'., and, every one must lts

A Little Money In It.
In its last imsue the Messenger adver
ted to the positive iacouveaoence expe
riseeml by pasengers taking the loeal
trala hereto meet the west bound train
at Cade' Station, occasioned by the long
wait at the lItter place. And when We
demaminated the eoadition 0t things an
eutrage, we but voiced th. sentiments of
the trav.ll g public, and, also, of the
greater part the people of this town,
whe, recognime fact that they are
receiving that tr eut they have rem
ren to expect. We yet hope that this
matter will be forcibly brought to the
attention of the railroad magnates. when
we trust, the eourse of complaint will be
removed. Now, in the interib we sug
gest that one of the livery stables at this
place start a hack line between this
town anl Cad'. The distance is bet
seven miles. Let the charge be, say fifty
crnts, and we believe they would make a
little money. For, passengers, in every
instance, would prefer taking a convey
ance which does not compel them to wait
over three bours "in a desert. During
the summer months the roads are In
fine traveling condition, and as the sta
blesare not doing more I usines than
they can conveniently attend to, even
