"Pointers" and "setters" and "brace1* and "bevy of birds" and "breadth of range" and "flush" these are bub a few of the words and phrases that have sounded strange th's week in the ears of the uninitiated as bird dogs galdre and their owners from all over the lower peninsula have been Jn the city. They have come and gone and all:pronounce the first annual trials of the Sportsmen's Meld Trials Club successful in all 'respects. Visitors were well pleased with the accomodations furnished by Landlord Calkins; the grounds were satisfactory and birds about right in the number found. Considerable interest was ■ shown in the trials, a large number following the do»s all three days. The feature of the 'trials was the winning of the Derby by Claravoint, owned and handled by townsman, E. H. Waller, and also securing second place in the All Age stake over a number of older and more experienced dogs and in the opinion of many , pressing the winner of first place pretty close. ' The Derby stake was run Tuesday with eighteen starters with the following winners: Claravoint, first—E. H. Waller of Clare, owner and handler. Gath's Dorrit, second—Dr. McQueen of Lowell, 'owner and handler. Phoebe's Eod, 1 third—Louis Hilsendegen, owner and ..handler, Dyke's Dyke, fourth—E, O. Smith of Midland, owner and handler. At the bench show Tuesday evening Lou Eodfield, owned by M. W. Tanner of t Saginaw, was -awarded first place. v .. The trials for the All Age stake oe-. cupied Wednesday and Thursday and the following are the winners: Lou Rodfield, first—owned by M. W. Tanner of Saginaw. Claravoint, second— ftwned by E. H. Waller of Clare. Eose M., third—owned'by F. H. Shearer of Bay City. Fourth was divided be- ' tween Phoebe's Bod, Louis Hilsen- berger of Detroit owner and Tony's Nell, A. J. Smith of Detroit, owner, Ih addition to cash prizes and special prizes'for the various positions won a fine silver cup was awarded to the winner of each stake as well as to the winner of the bench show. President Tanner has donated to the club a very fine silver cup, to be known as the president's cup, which will become the property of the member of the club who wins the Derby three successive years. M. W. Tanner's dog, Lou Eodfield, made a splendid showing, winning both the bench show and the first place ^,in the All Age-stake. This animal will probably make a good showing at the trials at the Michigan Field Trial Club, not limited to amateurs as is the membersh.ip of the Sportsmen's"Field Trials" Club, to be held at Greenville next month. One of the features of the meet was the good showing made by the seven- months-old pup, Dobrezyski, said to be one of the youngest entered .in such trials. Though so young this/ mere pup was advanced to the second series and the owner, F. E. Doherty, is much pleased at the showing made. Euby's Queen, owned by- C. H. -Van Brunt, was in the Derby stake but, while making a good showing, had an off day. George Dawson's Witney in the All Age made sufficient showing to be advanced to the second series. Great credit is due to C. E. Petit for his successful work in training winning dogs. It was h!s first experience in training dogs for trials but at least he was the trainer of the winners „of both stakes .and some other dogs whose work excited favorable., comment and indications point to greater successes as he goes on with the work. At a business meeting of the club the organization was found to be in a most excellent condition with a membership of 112-. The following are the officers'most of whom are re-elected:. ■ President—M, W. Tanner, Saginaw.' Secretary and Treasurer—E. C Smith, Midland.' BOARD OF DIRECTORS. M. W. Tanner. Charles A.

Recognizing Olare as the natural commercial centre for a large district and noting the excellent transportation facilities with the Ann Arbor and Pere Marquette and the Harrison branch crossing here the firm, of Wyman & Danley has been organized to go into the wholesale handling of all kinds of poultry. They buy poultry over a large area of country, and ship' to Clare, beginning this week Tuesday by shipping a car load from Evart. The have secured the building on McEwan street, formerly known as the Doherty warehouse, and, having equipped it, therein give employment for twenty-five, persons who." are engaged in dressing poultry ready to be shipped to the larger markets. ■ Besides the firm has a. number of men out on the road buying and thus thu industry becomes an important one for Clare.. The firm of Wyman & Cruikshank has also been formed for the wholesale buying of hay and have warehouses in this city adjacent to both the Ann Arbor and Pere- Marquette railroads with an office near the railroad on McEwan street. They will buy hay at a number of points along both roads but Clare will be the central office for the transaction of business. The Sbntinbtj welcomes these two new firms to' a place among Clare's business firms and congratulates our farming communities on the increased market facilities. Farmers' Institutes. * From secretary Fred Hudson of the Clare County Farmers? Institute we learn that there will be four one-day institutes in the county this yeai'. The state speaker for these meetings is '0. H. Alvord of Camden. The dates and places of meeting are: Eagle school house, November 17th. Farwell, November 18th. ■Gfrandon, November 19th. Harrison, November 20th. The round-up meeting willbe.held later . at Clare. Programs will. be issued in. the near future. Balm for Wounded Feelings. 'Tis really too bad but somebody has again been tantalizing the chairman of the Clare county democratic committee about non-partaisanship and he flies off the handle and calls names and lets out party secrets by boasting as to how smart the democratic leaders are in always lining up every last democrat on the board of supervisors at the same time winning over one or two republicans and thus getting from that board about everthing the democrats want from chairman to county drain commissioner^ How piteous are his moans that the democratic sta te central committee refuse-to patronize his business even though he is a member of thafceommitteeand hpw audible are his sighs for more secretaryships •lying around loose so that he can" pick up a few odd cents from each of 'em. 'Tis awful that anybody is so heartless as to keep up that everlasting non- partisanship tease. French George. John Crawford, Byron's famous horse importer and breeder, is in the city and at Thayer's feed barn is exhibiting one of the finest stallions we have seen. He is a black Percheron, four years old and weighs 1,625 pounds. The horse is priced at $2,000, and a stock company is now being formed, 'the company consisting of twenty reliable men, each taking a $100 share. We are glad to lenow that ourfarmers; and others interested in good horses, are encouraging the improvement of stock in this part of the state. v French George won first prize at the .state fair this fall. ' For Good Roads, \> The Hon. H. Earle said in a speech before the good roads convention held at Owosso last winter that the three principal points in road making are: First, drainage; second, good drainage; third, .better drainage, and that> if only this matter of proper drainage is attended to, then we can build roads. Now I wish to thUnk Freeman Mc- CaTey of Grant and Orson Blystone of Arthur for the interest they show in keeping up their roads and for the fixing up ot bad holes along' the rural route in their capacity as highway comrhissoners. Fked .Hudson: FINE BRICK STRUCTURE. Farwell's Bank Has Good Financial Backing—An Evidence of Development, The' bank recently opened at Far- well is already doing a good business, and is a credit to the village and a tribute to the development of the surrounding country. The Farwell Banking Co. is a safe institution and backed as it is by such people as L. "WiiM"nan, 0. W. Perry, O. S. Derby, E. 11. Jonny, 0. H. Sutherland, W. Wolsey and. Carrie Stroupe, it will continue to grow and will become recognized as the place to make deposits and to do financial business for a large area centering around the village of Farwell. The bank building *is a one story brick and stone structure with basement, 20 x 50 feet, erected at a cost of $2,500. .It is equipped at a cost of $1,500 with a modern screw door safe, a large vault, a-very fine L-shaped oak counter 14 and 7.feet long and two and one-half feet wide. The counter is the- work of Thurston & Son of Clare and is a great credit to them both in design and in .elegance of workmanship. At} the rear there is a commodious room for the use of the board of directors. The basement is to be utilized for offices. E. H. Smith is cashier of the bank with C. H. Sutherland as manager. Business is coming in very satisfactorily in keeping with the working out of .the resources dZ the surrounding country and everything points to a successful future for Farwell's bank. Rams for Sale; - Ooe Leicester and one Oxford Down ram for sale—both registered. * A. J. DomsKTY. / . Elder sister: . "Come, Clara, take your powder, like a dear.

I am at my old stand ready to do all ktnds of,gun aud wheel repairing. All wheels left here during my illness are repaired and should be taken away at once. Enoch Fish, . THAT ELECTRIC RAILROAD. Col. Boynton Has Had Survey Made from Gladwin- to Clare. For the past twelve months there has been much talk as to that proposed electric railroad. But the point is reached where action is in evidence. The survey is now made from" Gladwin to Olare, and at, this writing is well on to Rosebush. The route staked funs almost direct on tbe shortest course between here and Gladwin, passing just northwest of Sheridan town hall. The proposed line is to enter Clare from the northeast, following the creek bed, and crossing the state road and then runs out toward Mt. Pleasant between tbe state road and the Ann Arbor railroad. Clare's citizens committee are willing to recommend that a reasonable amount be given by 'Jlare, but they do not want to advance money until the rails are laid to the city. Successful Applicants. The following named applicants at the recent teachers' examination were successful and now hold teachers' certificates: Second grade—Joseph Bowler. - Third- grade—Josephine Armstrong, Mary Bracy, Theodore Browne,. Anna Empey, J. Vinton Gibson, Sam'l A. Jones, Agnes. Maloney, Martha Neill, Irma M. Stahl. Mc- Bouciiey-Bower. At the home, of the bride's parents. In Vernonat four p. va. Wednesday, October 28th, Minnie, the daughter of Mr.-"and "[Mrs. Gilbert Bouchey and Fred'Bower were united in .marriage, Rev. George' Varion of1 Rosebush officiating. A number of. the' friends and relatives, including four generations' on each side, were—present. After tbe ceremony all sat down to a bountiful repast. Many beautiful presents testified to the esteem and good will in .which both bride and groom are held. Mr. and Mrs. Bower have a large circle of friends who wish them prosperity and success as they go to housekeeping in their home on their farm south of Mb. Pleasant. ISABELLAS BUSINESS. Officers Elected and Money so " be Raised'for'Cotinty Expenses. ' The October session of the Isabella " board of supervisors is now a'matter of history. Among many things done we glean a few. S. D. Eldred- was elected county drain commissioner to succeed himself. They selected L. Oudthout of Chippewa superintendent ' of the poor to succeed 0. Bogan of Rosebush. B. T. Duffy w,as again chosen county school examiner. , It was voted to raise 323,000 for county expenses. Of this amount $6,000 is for the poor fund and 85,000 to pay off the debt incurred previously in the'People's Savings Bank mixup at Mt. Pleasant;. It is supposed that this sum will pay all the county's indebtedness. ' Sheep Grazing for Franklin. As narrated in these columns. two weeks ago, F. W. Hooper of Alma recently deposited $3,2u0 with: the auditor general for the payment of back taxes upon 3,100 acres of land in Franklin township. From the Alma Journal we learn that Mr, Hooper has secured the land for sheep grazing purposes, it being his purpose", to sell it in small lots to stock raisers and feeders. In fact he has already sold a number of hundred acres, ami as he fluds the land well adapted'for'the purpose set forth, the plan seeintfto be a feasible one. We congratulate Supervisor Hallet and tbe people of Franklin township on the payment of.,this sum.of delinquent taxes.-'- . * D--n Fine Country. Two of Clare's prominent citizens started oufc.on foot yesterday to5 make observations on - canine Intelligence during the progress of the 'Held trials south of the city, bufc after many, many miles of wandering, weary.:and foot sore they, dragged thelry way homewafd from their fruitless search *and when near town this, coUpquy took place: "Well, Albert,„this is a pretty, fine country." ' ■ "Yes, Ray, this is a d—ri fine conn- try but 1 doh'b see where those dogs qouldbe,doyou?"'
