YALE'S INDUSTRIES. THE YALE WOOLEN MILLS. When the census enumerator cives the ollicial count of the people of our village, the figures will probablv show something near 1000 inhabitants, and for a village of this size, it would not be easy to find a more enterprising place in Michigan or elsewhere. Our village is the ceutre of a rich agricult ural country, and its advantages as a business place have attracted to it good business men and enterprising manu facturers, among the latter is the firm of C. ANDREA E & SONS. This firm located here in 1881 and is composed of Chas. Andreae and his two sons Rudolph and Wm.V. Andreae. They built at once a substantial woolen mill, and since have done a prosperous business both for the community and for themselves. They purchase from the farmers of tho surrounding country an average of 45,000 pounds of wool per year, nearly all of which they man ufacture. At the end of the wool-buying season this year the Detroit papers stated that Yale buyers had paid bet ter prices than had been paid in any other place in Mich. llesides manu facturing the wool they buy, this firm do a large amount of custom spinning and wool-carding. THE MILL. The mill contains five looms and is well supplied with all the machinery required for a successful business. The amount ot lioor space occupied is 11,2b i square feet, besides a dyo house twenty feet square. The proprietors are now building a brick store room eighteen by forty feet in size. This building is to be furnished with an iron roor and is to be made perfectly fire proof. THE OUTPUT. Many of the inhabitants of this vil lage and township will be surprised to learn luliy, the extent or the business of this mill. An examination of the books in which are recorded the sales of the past lew weeks, shows large orders shipped to many parts of Mich igan. The cities and villages along tin lakes seem to be excellent customers of this firm, and large bills have recently been sent to Mason, Oceana, Manistee, Emmet, Cheboygan, Alpena, and losca counties, as well as to many other counties in every part ot this Mate The orders thus shipped during the month of September of this year amounted to tf(,200. d OO 1S M A N UFA CTU K ED. This firm manufactures several grades of cashmeres, llannels, blankets, yarns, etc. A large custom trade, mi doubtedly the largest done by any sim ilar mill in Michigan, is done here The custom not only consists of the work done for the surrounding farm ers, but wool is sent from other parts of thebtnte to be here manufactured and th' product returned. (500 orders for cii'i.n spinning alone are received per ye.n . Over 1M0 dozen pair of socks and i ii. (ens are knit every year by women oi' the surrounding country, the yarn being furnished from this mill, and the labor paid by this iirm at a lair price per pair. 1 hirteen persons are employed to run tiie nun. THE lMM)PKIKTOi:s. In a business like this the keys to success are honesty, reliability, special adaption to the work, and industry and strict attention to business. 1 hat these qualities are p-ssess;'d by the proprietors? of this mill will be attested by all who have dealt with them, and who know what they are doing; more over they are kind, genial men who make menus wherever they are known. They illustrate the prineplc that the en terprise of this kind can be conducted so as to benelit the proprietors and be of the highest importance to the com munity in which they are located. GENERAL HEWS. The managers of the telephone com pany of West Day City object to hav ing "the electric light and streetcar wirea fastened to their poles, as the proximity of highly charged wires to the telephone wires interferes with their working. Thomas Murphy, of West Hay City, was thought by his father to be a very disorderly boy; ho was sent to the state reform school for six years. Together with the present of the Sage library to West Jiay City there is to be !?2.000 spent yearly for new books. The Lapeer Democrat will print the tax-rolls this year for the first time in 20 years. Samuel Leticq, of West Hay City, had a watch and a sum of money stolen from his barber-shop some time ago. Young Charles Duggan has been appre hended for tho theft and arrested. Stephen 1). llussel, formerly of Sagi naw, was caught in a railroad wreck in Missouri and seriously injured. Eddie Ilobb, a little Hay City boy di ed recently from the effects of a wound from a tlobcrt-riflo in the hands of his playmates. The West JJay City Post, which has been hitherto a daily, will henceforth continue as a semi-weekly. The merchants of West Uay City have petitioned the Michigan Central for a new depot. Duke Snell. of Speaker, recently lost a pocketbook containing $50, and it caused him a great deal of worriment. One morning when he went to reed his horses he noticed that one of them seemed to have a pain in his foot. On lifting up the foot he found the pock etbook imbedded in the horse shoe. Another case where a horse shoe brought good luck. -Evening Neios. In spite of the general Democratic gains, in Huron county the Itepnbli- cans awoke this year to secure for themselves a victory such as they had not dreamed of. The candidates for Prosecuting Attorney, Chipman; Cir cuit Court Commissioners, Thompson and McLean, and Coroner, Henderson were all elected. This is a decided suc cess, and proves that where the Repub licans turn out they are sure to make a good showing. This also speaks well for 1802. Huron county will then doubtless thoroughly reprieve its name under the Republican standard. COUNTY COLUMN. St. Clair county has 463 pensioners. The recent election by the booth sys tem cost Port Huron S792. James Morden slipped on a Port Hu ron sidewalk and fell down a flight of stairs. He sued the city for $20,000 and has just been defeated. Mrs. Frank Kilsch, of Port Huron, undertook to make a planter of gun powder and lard. It is thought she may live. ltayraon Dopp stole al out 8300 worth of type from the office of the Port Hu ron Zeitung and went to Saginaw. There he found a call awaiting him to go to Port Huron. Mrs. llonora (Jilmartin. of Port Hu ron, died last Monday morning at the age of 03 years. Major N. S. IJoynton returned last Saturday to his home in Port Huron after an extended trip in the East a mong Maccabee conventions. Susie F. Dwyer. for nearly four years money-order clerk in the Port Huron post ofiice, received notice of dismissal last Sunday. Last week when the belfry of the (lerman Evangelical church, of Port Huron, was inspected, almost half a ton of hay is said to have been found, carried there by sparrows. Wm. P. Edison of Port Huron, the brother of Thos. A. the electrician, has been very sick. T. Tobin, Eugene Sullivan and D. Moonan, cattle drovers, were arrested at the Port Huron depot for disorderly conduct last week. A 15-year-old girl of Marine City is sueing lor a divorce. She was married in Canada two years ago. A new insurance company has been organized in Port Huron, named the American Home Protectors. . C. Anderson is president. One of the engines used in the exca vation at the mouth of tho tunnel was badly smashed last Wednesday owing to the carelessness of the engineer. Wm. A. Mallory, a well known citi zen of Port Huron aged 75 years, met some friends on the street and was tell ing them how well he felt when he fell dead. Angus King, of Port Huron, used to call hitnsell a slugger, and one of the beat in the state. Last Saturday he slapped Peter Pound's face. So Peter retaliated; and when Angus came to himself he had much supcrlluous nose his eyes were closed and altogether he looked as it he had been in a light. The band and thosu who accompani ed it from Women to ;t. Clair at the time of thu grand Democratic celebra tion there, had a sad experience. They evidently arrived a little late at the station; for thy were favored with see ing the rear end ot the last car silently disappear as they arrived. It being the last train on Saturday night their experience in St. (.'lair over Sunday was varied to say the least. We learn the following facts from a report of the last inspecting party. It is thought that, from the magnitude of the work to be done on the approaches the tunnel will not be ready for use be fore next May or .June. It required six months to dig the jut from whence the tunneling began; so that a fair esti mate may be made of the length of time necessary to grade this back so that the slope shall not exceed 80 feet to the mile. This means that the ap proaches will have to be about a mile long on tin American side and even longer on the Canadian side. The big tube itself is made up of segments of iron one foot thick, 4 feet J inches long and 18 inches wide. Thirteen of these are nee'essary to make one ring of the tube. There are 3,852 of these rings in the tunnel, which make in all 52,128 pieces of steel in the lining. Wood Foh Sale. I have for sale any quantity of dry wood at from 1.25 to per cord. .1.11.
