There Is no class of people,—attorneys, teachers, farmers, bankers, or whatever class—but can improve on habits of dally'living and in their var- d|/ ions vocations by coming together occasionally and exchanging ideas and methods, expressing individual difficulties and hearing suggestions which to carry out will alleviate these difficulties. This is especially true of teachers. These institutes are conducted by men who have made the profession of teaching a lifelong study, and to follow whose suggestions will make better teachers and consequently, better schools, the old adage "as is the teacher, so is the school!' holding true to the begining of the 20th century. This is a three days' institute and it will pay every teacher to attend. The law says if teachers attend these institutes they shall receive their salaries just the same. We have heard of 0De member of a school board wbo was' narrow minded enough to refuse to allow a teacher to attend an institute and have her salary continue. We hope that fellow is off the board, that tbe yoters are forgiven for ever putting him on in the first place, and that he'll never allow himself to be put on a school board again. ^Prin. 0. T.

The discovery bas been made by one of the leading attorneys of Brooklyn, N. Y., that every volunteer who enlisted in the Spanish war Is entitled to a bounty amounting to $192 provided for by a Federal statute passed many years ago. It is estimated that a discovery of these old laws will cost the Federal Government about $5,000,- 000. The matter is now pending before Attorney-General Knox, at Washington, and John C. Sexton, presiding judge of state court of claims, It is said that the 3,000 claims represented by the attorney will be allowed without any extended legal contest,' The matter is expected to be settled within the next ten days. During' the civil war bounties amounting to 8300 were paid to volunteers. Some time after the war this law went out of existence. To provide for future contingencies tbe federal bounty laws were passed. During the late war two classes of bounties were paid by the federal authorities. To those privates who enlisted for service in any part of the world $31.20 or two months' additional pay was allowed. Officers of all grades were allowed two months' extra pay. To those volunteers who would not leave the country one month's extra pay was allowed. The discovery of the old laws was made by accident while the attorney was looking ofer some old federal statutes. "ITINERANT VENDERS. The Enactement of the Recent Legislature Put Them out of Business. Davy & Co. sent James G. Rox- burg up to Harrison this week where they had advertised a sale of cloaks and jackets. Jim had scarcely opened np for business wben he got notice to quit. Tne law prohibiting sales nature was framed and passed recent legislature, and while filets with the enterprise of of-this by the it con- some of our own merchants, we believe it a splendid law. Below we give Section I of act No. 191, public acts of 1901: The words "itinerant venders," for the purposes of this act, shall be construed to mean, and include all persons, both principals and agents who engage in a temporary or transient- business in this State, either in one locality, or in traveling from place to place selling goods, wares and merchandise, and who for the purposes of earring on such business, hire, lease or occupy any building or structure for the exhibition and sale of such goods, wares and merchandise. No itinerant vender shall be releived or exempted from the provisions and requirements of this act by reason of associating himself temporarily with any local dealer, trader, merchant or auctioneer, or by conducting such temporary or transient business in connection, with or as a part of the business of, or in the name of any local dealer, trader, merchant or auctioneer. Herbert Luce Killed. Friday morning two freight trains collided near Birmingham, on the D. & M. branch of the Grand Trunk railroad, killing one engineer, one flireman and one brakeman. The flireman was a former Clare boy, HerbeH Luce, whose home was in Owosso, Herbert was a promising yonng man and his many friends In Clare are pained to hear of his sudden demise. The Woman's Relief Corps will serve a ten cent supper at the G. A. R. hall on Wednesday, Oct. 30th, to get funds to help Wm. Garrison, a veteran of the junion army who has been sick a long time and is very destitute.

Cordially yours, MRS. K. M. GOODMAN".. j EXCHANGE, GLEANINGS The postofflce department has decided to place the late President McKinley's head on the new issue of postal cards which will appear shortly after December 1 next. A girl named plain "Mary-- at her birth, dropped the "r" when she grew up and became Miss May. As she began to shine in a social way she changed the "y" to "e" and signed her letters "Mae". About a year ago she was married, and now she has dropped the "e"and it's plain "Ma". Thats'evolution. That advertising in the newspapers has become essential to succes in most enterprises appears from many indications. A striking proof is the extraordinary development of the business of writing advertisements for the newspapers, One of the oldest and moat successful schools in this city has found it expedient to establish a de] partment for the training of "ad" writers. It is only a question of time when every kind of busiuess will make Its announcement regularly through the newspapers.—Philadelphia Record. The girl who expressed her sympathy for the poor farmer because of the cold job in harvesting his winter wheat is equal In agricultural knowledge to the desire to see a field of tobacco when it was just plugging out. But the damsel who asked which cow gave the buttermilk is entitled to the whole bakery. But she was not much ahead of the girl who, having just returned from a visit in the country, was asked if she had ever seen anyone milk a cow said, "Oh yes, it tickled me to death to see uncle jerk two of the cow's faucets at the same time!" Maj. Gen. Corbin's annual report reveals that the losses from all causes in the regular army and the volunteers from July 1,1900, to June 30 last totaled 191924 officers and men In the former, and 8,191 in the latter, The casualties to the troops in the Philippines since the date of the first arrival, June 30, 1898, to June 30 last, were 115 officers and 3,378 men killed?. and 182 officers and 2,646 men wounded. Gen. Corbin recommends that the- old law requiring that each candidate- from tbe ranks for a commission ip* the army, a "non-commissicned officer*' in good standing, who has displayed* an aptitude for command and control"*" of men," be removed. While a great*- many excellent young men have comet? into the service as officers under thfe* > present law, which opens the way* for- commissions to enlist men who haven had'two years' service, Gen. GdrJMm says there has been a number of othe*"s* who have entered the army as officers* ln this way who are not up to tfeffis requirements of their rank. A man should never be asHa-nsed?to- own thacne nas been in fctte wrong*.-, which is but saying, in other-words* that he is Wiser todajr „anij bbs w-asfo yesterday.
