Our village,, for so lung a time dormant and stationary, li within the last year taken new start in activi-1 ty. - Years ago, befor the Michigan Central and Nonthorn Railroads were -built, it drew a large trade IV0111 an extended territory, and IU prospccU for becoming a busiuess centre were more flattering than most of the surrounding towns. After the conipic?. tioh of these roads, tlio towns North and South rapidly outstripped our inland village, appropriated tlio trade naturally belonging to Homer, and bqnd gcw rich at the same time that were depleted. . -But since the completion of the Air Line Railroad, and iu (bet pince .iu success . was assured, "si new lift)' lias been in Aired, and s flesh impetus given . to to overy department of business and industry. And mow, with 'tbo Northern Central ironed and soon to lie ready' for business as a competing line of rood, giving ns direct, expcdicious and cheap communication in nil directions, there , it . .1 v every. enson to expect a very large Increase of population and business. Tho healthy situation amTpleaannt surrounding1 of the village have long . been conceded. The general intclli-, gence and morality of Hie village is of a high order. Tbo churches and schools are well sustained. Hum- 'bugs and isms' fliul among iis an extremely unpropilious toil. Perhaps no village in tho interior of tho State presents greuter attractions to those desiring to find pleasant homos, while there is ample room for the investment of capital in real estate, iu business, or in securities. . r. ..There is an- excellent opening at this time for a variety of mauuftictiir-ing establishments, prominent among which just now, and iinporitlvcly demanded, Is a Foundry and Macliine -w Shop, for the manufacture of agricul-' fond implemenU. A practical man, with some knowledge of the business, and capital sufficient to carry it on, would find It an excellent investment. The forming lands surrounding the village are. of the. most fertile and productive quality, capable of sustaining a huge manufacturing population.'
