From year to year the town has enjoyed steady growth, until it now boasts of a population of between ,500 aud 3,000. In addition to the school and the increased pop ulation, factories, stave mills, and arious other enterprises nave been established.

We ex tend sympathy to Mrs. McDougal in her loss, but she is to be con soled with the fact that Old Sam bad reached the age seldom reached by the average horse.
