p.1 Were Rescued - Sault Ste. Marie, Dec. 27th - The tug Reid arrived here last evening having on board W.O. Demers, light keeper at Cariboo Island, and Fred Pelletier, his assistant, who had been practically given up by their friends here as lost. Demers and Pelletier were taken off the island on Saturday afternoon by the Reid, after the tug had made two unsuccessful attempts to reach the island. They had abandoned all hope of being taken off this season and were preparing to spend the winter on the island when the tug succeeded in reaching them.

p.5 Wolfe Island News - to be a board of three managers for the ferry, which will consist of the reeve, captain, and one to be elected by the people, he to be under salary.

It is quietly whispered that a movement is on foot to present Reeve Fawcett, who is retiring from the council, with a coon coat for his services in connection with the steamer Fawcett, it being largely due to his efforts that the steamer is now plying here. Tuesday she made her last trip for this year; she will winter at Garden Island, under the care of David Pyke, her veteran watchman.
