Mr. Nathan Day has a gang of men employed cutting saw-logs, shingle bolts, cordwood etc. Most of the timber is lying down caused by the fire last summer. Mr. Day will likely draw the cordwood to the lakeshore and the balance to Fenelon Falls.
We thought, by the improvements that have been made in a certain house in this locality, that someone was going to get married, but we were disappointed. We have learned that a Mr. Arkwright from Somerville intends to occupy the house. We welcome Mr. and Mrs. A. into our neighborhood.
Mr. Henry Eyres of Cameron is calling around for the last time with his traction. We hope Mr. Eyres may be very successful when he is making a tour with his horse and cutter. Mr Eyers has one of the best threshing outfits in this part of the country.

Miss Nellie Daniels is enjoying a month's visit with relatives in the township of Tiny.
We are glad to learn that Mr. Wm. Powles has so far recovered as to be able to go out a little every day.
