      The following is taken from the Equity, a newspaper published at Bryson, Quebec:
      We were pleased to receive a call on Thursday last from Mr. J. Lindsey Smith, whose visit to his parents here was mentioned in our last issue. In company with his wife and sisters he visited the slides in the afternoon, and enjoyed a few pleasant hours in watching the timber running the slides. Speaking of Brainerd, Mr. Smith says it is a lively little place of 10,500 inhabitants, all of whom are full of enterprise and prosperity. The school system, he says, is very good. There are in the city one principal school and then one for each electoral ward. There is no trouble he says, to get along in that country, as any one anxious and willing to work can get it and receive double the pay given here. Mr. Smith speaks in glowing terms of our friend, Mr. James Meagher's success. He carries a stock worth $20,000 and employs six or eight clerks constantly. Mr. Meagher is looked upon as one of the leading and most trustworthy business men of the place. (Brainerd Dispatch, 14 September 1888, p. 4, c. 5)
