Local News

We understand that Simcoe is about to lose one of her most prominent young citizens in Prof. C. A. Decoe, who is about to remove to Ridgetown.

This announcement will without a doubt be received by Prof. Decoe's many friends with great regret.

By his talent as a musician, which he has cheerfully lent on every occasion where needed, he has placed all of our people more or less under obligations to him.

What is Simcoe's loss is Ridgetown's gain, and that they we be quick to find this out we are sure.

We wish the Professor good luck.
