Marie, Sept. 16 - The first train on the DSS and A reched S. S. Marie today and the whole town is crazy with enthusiasm. The last spike was driven at twelve 0'clock noon amid a salute of 21 guns fired from cannon brought from Fort Brady to the terminus of the road, while the air shook with the cheers of the multitude of enthusiastic spectators. After years of wailing and longing, those who have stuck by the Sault now see their fondest hopes realized. there's nothing too good for us tonight, and the toot isn't confined to the Democratic office this time.
