V RflND ARRAY. Funeral of the Late Frank A. Welch a Magnificent Affair, . *> Largest in the History of Clare County. -* ■•*■-- The body of "Frank A. Welch, son of -ex-Mayor James L. Welch, was laid to rest in Cherry G-rove cemetery last Sunday morning. Clare's tribute to her soldier was beautiful and touching. It seemed as though all the people in the city and in the country for many miles around, turned out to pay homage to his memory. The vast throng along the line of parade and in the cemetery numbered several thousand, aud all, from the oldest to the youngest, showed sincere sympathy for the bereaved family' and tearful regret for the dead. Several hundred persons were assembled at the union depot at 10 o'clock: last Thursday night when the train bearing Frank's remains, reached Clare. Mayor Dunlop and the common council received the body and bore it to the undertaking rooms of A. Thurston & Co. The next evening it •was conveyed to tbe home of ex-Mayor Welch on First street, out from which •fi'Wp,years ago Frank had gone, filled with patriotic fervor, to take his place in the army of the United States. In the Philippines he had met his death toravely fighting for his country. Now the government had brought him hack ten thousand miles from across the sea, to the grief-stricken home,o where for thirteen months since his 4eath, the loved ones had been watching and waiting, oft times almost wjLtbout hope, for the precious body of iffir boy. Sympathetic hands relieved the family of every possible burden. The casket, resting in the home so -greatly bereayed, was soon strewn With flowers. The flag Frank had bought to defend, enshrouded him. All Friday evening and Saturday and -up to the yery hour of the services on ■Sunday morning,-^there was a steady stream Of friends passing through the Wain fn which the body lay and many & tear was shed in sympathy with the sorrowing family. The citizens committee had arranged every detail of the funeral and under the supervision of ex-Mayor Kirkbride, who acted as Marshal, these details were carried out quietly aud perfectly. The light showers of rain which fell during the early morning cooled the atmosphere and brought comfort to the assembling crowds. Promptly at the appointed hour Rev. A. 0. Barclay of the Baptist church conducted a brief service of prayer at the home and tbe body of the dead soldier was borne to tbe hearse by his comrades in arms: Farnham Pratt, Clifford Clark, Euth- erford Durling, Samuel Stewart, George Bowen, Dell Vreeland and Joel Bader. To the sweet strains of music by the Harrison city band, the funeral cortege moved slowly from the house to the cemetery in the following order: Harrison City Band. Clare Company, Uniform Rank, K. of P. Horthey's Martial Band. W. S. Hancock Post, G. A. R. Clergymen and speakers in carriage. Veterans of the Spanish-American and Philippine wars. The hearse. The family in carriages. Veterans of the Mexican war in carriage. Mayor Dunlop and the common council. Singers in carriages. Citizens in cariages and on foot. The profession was perhaps the longest ever seen in Olare and was viewed by crowds of people all along the line of march, The services at the cemetery will long be remembered by the thousands of people who were there. Though the vast audience were compelled to stand throughout the ceremonies, there was no disorder, all giving respectful and sympathetic attention and the services themselves were touching and appropriate. The ladies' quartet, consisting of Mrs. James Rox- burg, Miss Clara Bruske, Miss Maud Rhoades and Miss Kate Knowles, beautifully sang two selections, "Abide with Me," and "Thy Will be Done;" Rey. J. W. Hathaway of the M. B, church, gave the scripture reading (the 103d Psalm and the four- teethn chapter of St. John) and Rev, M.'Knowles offered prayer. Arthur J. Lacy delivered an address which deserved and received the closest attention from all. He spoke feelingly of the dead soldier, of his heroism and patriotism and paid a splendid tribute to his yalor. D. E. Alward also addressed the audience. So clear and distinct was his enunciation that the vast throng present were able to follow him throughout, and himself having buried inCherry Grove a little boy whose memory he fondly cherishes, he could sympathize with the bereaved parents as those not having borne a similar grief could not possibly do. It was indeed a sad occasion, and when his brief addresB was ended few were there whose faces were nob tear-stained. Mrs. J. A. Reeder and Miss Louise Bruske sang "Sweetly our Hero Sleeps," the words and music of the song being, a fitting finale to the service for the dead. The body v/as lowered into the grave and the salute was fired by a detachment of veterans of the civil war, and all was over. Mr. and Mrs." James L. Welch request the Sentinel to express for them their heartfelt appreciation of all that bas been dode for them and the great honor which the community has show to the memory of their son. The many words of sympathy and deeds of kindness have done much to soften their grief and they will ever cherish, in greatful remembrance, these expressions of the people. SUPREME COURT DECISION.

"None of the six had bars which could be seen from the street. The case went to the Circuit court and Judge Smith held that all bars must be in unobstructed view from the street according to law. A fund was then raised among the saloon men of the state to assist White in his case. The Supreme court has been considering the case for six months and now affirms Judge Smith's decision. This means that almost every bar in every saloon and hotel in Michigan must be rearranged and remodeled so that the bar oan be plainly seen from the street without any obstructions. MICHIGAN MACCABEES. Their Relation To The Supreme 1'ent. To The Editok:— For the information of over 100,000 members of the Order in Michigan, many of whom are laboring under the impression that the changes in the laws of the Supreme Tent, particularly that of raising the rates of assessments, affected the Great Camp membership, I want to say through your columns for their beneflb that such is not the case. Outside of using in common the same ritual and the same pass words, the two bodies are just as distinct and as independent as the relations of each are to other sister organizations. Legislation passed by the Supreme Tent cannot effect the Great Oamp and no legislation passed by the Great Camp can have any bearing on the Supreme Tent. Each is acting under seperate and dii-tinct articles of incorporation and under laws of their own making. Tnere bas never been any closer relations than mentioned above. The Great Camp was organized and incorporated in 1SS1. The SuDreme Tent was organized in 1883, two' years later, as a voluntary association, and in 1885 was incorporated under the General Laws of the state. The only action taken by the Supreme Tent which mjgut effect the Great Camp was in amending the articles of association so that it could do business in Michigan, in competition with the Great Oamp. Heretofore and now the articles of incorporation of the Great Oamp limited its jurisdiction to the State of Michigan, while the Supreme Tent extended to all other parts of the country outside of this state. As the Supreme Tents assessment rates are about double that of the Great Oamp, I do not apprehend, should they do business In this state, it would injure the Great Gamp in the least. * N. S. BOCTTON. Those Medical Examinations. The writer desires to inform his fejlow citizens that the Michigan state medical examination is much more thorough than that of neighboring states, and in order now t to stand a successful examination, a very comprehensive knowledge of the whole field of medicine and surgery is necessary and must be up-to'-dale. Dr. Shaw passed successfully: chemistry,. bactereology, physiology, histology, pathology, toxicology, gynaecology, distriptive anatomy, surgical anatomy, materia medica, therapeutics,, practice of medicine, minor surgery, major surgery, surgical pathology, obstetrics*, eye and ear, medical juris- - prudence and public health laws and.* hygiene, which have been placed- to • his credit by the state medical board.- Of the nineteen subjects the doctor- captured eighteen and got the nineteenth, '"a paper on mental and nervous diseases, tbe medico-legal aspect - of which brings it within the range of-* expert knowledge." except two-or- tbree quest-ions. This paper will* be. - made a specialty of while- away.
