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
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
