We tender congratulations all the same. NOUTIIEKN TRIIIUNE COIIKLMPON I)i:(E. ALUS. ' April 28th 1885- We heard that dread winter was j gone but this morning we arose to at least 12 inches of the beautiful covering the fair faces f AUis and Waverly. which it was hoped ere now wcnld have been made sisters. The failure is probably owing te that old paek of ravenovs wolves that drov tmr worthy ex-Supervisor into the hollow log and undoubtedly would have made another widow only for the Union School petition which lay sleeping in the soles of his boots, which could not be drawn into the loar, but we fear our ex Supervisor is no more since the new County Petition entrusted to his care was either (as report goes) lost, stolen or sold for good dinners, but we think it more proboble that as the petition was a fat one that those wolves (that drovo the ex-Superyisor of Waverly up a tre) must have scented it from afar: And thus the County of Sumner Has fell o'er the keel, And who Is rejoicing i Mre, than Mother Presque Isle. As to business in this locality, it ii just booming, esnaeially with our two merchants. Uncle Sam being unable to carry me man for both firms, necesslta ting the running of private stage.
