It is now utterly impassable in ,he day time, while at night it becomes langerous to life and limb. It bas been n this shape for so long a time that peo)le in that región think the owner will never repair it.

Mr. Frazer goes to Cheboy;an, a promising place, growing upon the traits of Mackinaw. It is with sorrow we part with Mm. Ile goes to his new lioine with the well wishes of thousands of men, women ond chüdrenin old Washteuaw. Even those who have denounced him for notalways thinking as they think, doiugas they would have dono, voting as they would have voted, will aceord to him sincerity, and will say, "The last four years Bob has fouglit a ood flght, and he goes carrying with him our respect." He will have something wortu more, the prayers of many a mother and many a devoted wife daily lifted to heaven in his behalf that he may stand firm, atways abounding in the graces of temperance and in mery otier good word and work. We congratúlate the citizens of Cheboygan in this acquisition to their number, beliuving that he will be a power in moulding the character and the future of the new town and of that entire región. Bob! The Commercial thus extends to you its farewell. Yoursteadfast friend and co-worker in the past it expects to be able to hear and record noble and grand things of you in your i:ew home. A farewell shake . The Democrat, while it feit constrained to say some things politically during the campaign last fall, entertains only kindly feeliogs for Mr. Frazer, and while we regret his removal our best wishes will follow him in his new home. Suceess, Robert.
