Hathaway delivering the address and all tbe churches are invited to join in this service. Tbe bank now occupies the front of A. J. Dohertv & Sons' store in the bank block, while repairs are being made. The new boiler is here and when the building is completely renovated it will have a modern steam heating plant. The lire alarm was turned in Tuesday evening, Will Kump's house, west State street, haviDg caught fire, presumably from sparks from the kitchen stove. The flre did little damage, but the excessive use of water did much. Both house and contents were insured. Following are new subscribers to the Michigan Telephone Co: 77, H. A. Stroupe, residence; 78 Harris & Son, grocery store; 79, J, R, Hess, Olare Creamery; 50-3, Bicknell's grocery; 50-3, Bicknell's dry goods store. Just put these numbers on your list while you think of it. Work on the residence of W, P. Lewis is nearly completed, and with the yard graded and seeded, a stone foundation, a specious cellar, and two coats of paint inside and out, he now has one of the mosG desirable residences in the city. Holbrook, Falk and Chase are doing the painting. One of the finest Percheron horses ever brought to the connty may at present be seen at the Central Hotel barn. He is a monster, valued at $1800 and weighing 1995 pounds. He will be owned by a stock company, of which several Clareites will be share holders. The stock of Clare county is being greatly improyed. Some boys, whose time should be spent much more profitably, climed upon tbe German Luthern church recently, pulled the bell rope through the roof, and did other pranks to the damage of the property. The warning note has been sounded by the board of trustees, and those guilty will show their good judgement if in the future they do not trespass upon these premises. The fireman's concert at tbe opera house last evening was attended by a large audience, and a first-class entertainment was given. John Cofee of Cadillac was present and bis recitations were well received. Miss Sylvia Woodruff of Saginaw rendered several vocal selections which were highly appreciated. Olare has reason to be proud of the most excellent home talent she has, all of those taking part credibly acquitting themselves. Wm. F. Dodge, living five miles southwest of Clare, is the inventor of a device which will be of lasting benefit to farmers and teamsters generally. Mr. Dodge once was drawing a load when the end of tbe reach of the wagon pulled out, He chained the reach and proceeded with his load, and it was chaned in such a way that when he turned around he noticed tbe wheels tracked. He studied out the idea, made his working model, had the wagon patented, and such an excellent device it is, the invention will doubtless prove to be a small gold mine to him. As we said the wagon tracks when turning around, so that all the driver has to do is to see that the front wheels get through the gate, and the hind wheels take care of themselves,*—go wherever the -front ones do. Another excellent feature is that the tongue of the wagon remains steady, even in the roughest roads. The Sentinel will doubtless give an illustration ofthe wagon in a subsequent issue. ©-^-©•<^©-*^.«-,*-'e(#~«(>-*B--*■©-<»-»•-•*•© | S6H00L DEPARTMENT \ 9**>B-^>-9<*'t6*&'&0'^*O1b-0^*9*&yG JAMES TA-J-MAN, JR., EIHTOR. Recesses are again in order. The sixth grade has begun the study of elementary botany. The ninth grade has begun the study of Scott's Lady of the Lake. The seventh grade is reading "Grandmother's story ot Bunker Hill.-" . A reading table for the high school and waste paper baskets are the latest additions to our equipment. A. JE. Mack is placing on the doors of the various rooms the number and grade of each, The sebiors seem to hold numerous mysterious meetings, but to date we haye not heard of any class s>quables. Teachers say that it is much easier to work under present conditions. They now have a leverage. Mr. Arrand is putting on the finishing touches in grading the lawn. We are now promised in proper time a lawn in keeping with the building. A large number of people visited the school building last Sunday and all seemeS much imrrjssed at the general excellence of all they saw. Many remarks were overheard, bat this .was most characteristic: "This is the first public building I ever saw on which there has been no kicking." Last Friday Albert Cornwell spelled down tbe high scho 1 On Tuesday tbe eighth grade aad the high school were given a test in spelling thirty words selected from those used in the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth .grades.

The whole gain of our civilization and of woman's highest welfare lies In making the present need bead to the future requirement, in accepting present loss for future gam, in taking long* and longer chances. We women need surely to study these duties more scientifically, more as a whole, instead of this daily whittling away of our lives over the seperate parts. The great object of life is life-nrest- ful, strong, beneficent—and we women who desire earnestly "the best things" for ourselves and our households must do less plodding and more planning; less sacrificing and more intelligent contriving; we must have less guess work and more accurate knowlege. We need to gird ourselves daily for a climb to the "thinking levels," where we may feel the cool breath of heaven and recleve inspiration from the large view.—Stilletta Paton Burke in "the May Woman's Home Companion.

GOODMAN A wise Baying is this by an experienced employer: "I always Rive preference, tomeb who want to learn, because a studious man is more attentive to his duties and can \>e instructed easier than one who does not care to study, and if a man studies he has no time to waste about places where he bad better not be." The Western Editor puts it meatily thus: "If a publisher wants to learn a thing or two about combination let him disguise himself as a farmer and offer a load of corn for sale at one of his city's elevators. He will be told that he can have so much per bushel. Then let him haul it oyer to the other elevator and offer it for sale. He is ottered the same price per bushel to the fraction of a.cent. But if a town has two print shops it's a cinch that they are cutting prices and trying to down each other. No wonder grain buyers can barrow money at the bank." Clare's Firemen. Not a fireman ever falters When he hears the whistle or hell That the danger and disaster Of some lellow mortal tell. From the festal board and alter. From the bridal and the bier, How the firemen all-will hasten When the danger note they hear. When the deadly smoke is pouring Where the lurid banners wave, You will flnd Clare firemen Swift to help and to save; And our city has many a masion Where a happy home is made That but for the firemen There In dust and ashes laid. Then hurrah for our gallant firemen Honor them one ana all, If it were not for tbeir efforts We would have no city at aU. Julia a. Nortor. Clare, May 3,1901.
