Farmers of Clare and Northern Isabella Counties Hold a Rousing Two Day Institute. •*y Prof. F. A Jeffrey, I, M. Dean and Miss -..» JeanioA. Buell ihe State Spaokcrs- Fop four years Glare county has held farmers' institutes, and while the first institute, was a rather tame affair, those few who did attend were brought to believe that these annual interchanges of ideas are an excelleut thing and each succeeding Institute was more largely attended than the preceeding. The institute just closing as we go to press is the climax in attendance and enthusiasm, both afternoons tbe opera house was comfortably full and Wednesday evening every seat was taken. The program was carried out, with averyfew changes, and the suggestions by the state speakers and the discussions which followed brought out many points of vital interest to our rural friends. The evening session was greatly enjoyed by all in attendance. Kirk- bride's orchestra furnished music, Miss Pearl Easton recited, Fred John- eon gave a comic solo a"nd was encored. " Bex DeVogt recited, Mrs. G. E. Lamb . sang a solo and Mayor Dunlop gave two recitations In Scotch dialect. Miss Buell spoke at length on the topic, Farmers' Organizatiops, and Com'r. Aldrich SDOke on Educational Problems. At noon today officers for the'ensuing year were elected as follows: President,—J. L. Littlefleld, Farwell. Secretary,—A. E. Oanfield, Glare. Treasurer,—P. M, Loomis, Wise. VICE FESIDENTa Arthur-^-L. L, Penny. Franklin—-F. E. Gleason, Frost—L. Buttermbre. . ' Greenwood—J. A. Vosburg. Grant—Jos, Hudson. Garfield—Isaac Hayner. Hamilton—Patrick Shea. Hutton-^Jobn Gordon. Hayes—L. Brazette. , Bedding—W. M, Temple. Sheridan—M. D, Clute, Samtnertleld—L, W. Green. Surrey—h. Finch. Wlntecfleld-'George Lockwood. Wise—John Lansing. , Vernon—John Hbrohon. Gilmore—Miles Schofleld. The farmers' institute are greatly obliged to Senator Doherty for the use of the opera house for the meetings, and it was decided to hold the next institute at Clare, this being the most central point. The large attendance this week assures us *hat the-farmers are waking up to the idea that the meeting pnce a year and interchange of ideas is a first rate good thing, and we anticipate even a larger attendance next year. * Women's Section. The women's section of the institute which was held at G. A. R. hall was largely attended both by farmers' wives and those of the townspeople wbo were interested, The program as given out previously was carried out with a few changes, some of the ladies to speak not being present. Miss Buell gave helpful hints to farmer's wives as to making the farm home more attractive, more thought provoking pictures on the walls, even though they be nothing more costly than the penny Perry pictures, more good reading matter on the table all of which will- inspire higher talk and thought in the family than the mere everyday round. The yard in front should be "a thing of beauty," it should receive a good share of attention by planting and caring for shrubbery, plants and plenty of wild vines. In it also should be croquet sets, room for foot and base ball also bird houses. Surely every farmer's wife will be raising turkeys for next Christmas for the many helpful suggestions were enough to make the turkeys themselves smile. JLn raising young turkeys two helpful points were, not to overfeed them and to keep them cool and dry. It was agreed that in order to have a good garden one must be proficient with the hoe early in the morning while the dew Is still on. The question of female hired help being well considered, electipn of officers followed, Mrs. Joseph Hudson being elected president tot tha ensuing .year and after the singing of "Home Sweet Home," the meeting adjourned.

A coroner's-jury in Georgia delivered the following original verdict on the sudden death of a merchant who had •failed-in business: "We, the jury^ find from the doctor's statement that the diseased came to his death from heart failure, superinduced by business failue, which was caused by failure to advertise, which was the result ot failure,to see far enough ahead." There are three business facts which may be regarded as established says the Hartford telegram—that there is no worthy article at a reasonaole price which cannot be sold by the right kind of advertising; that the newspaper which has a large circulation is the best medium and that an advertisement which is specific and which qudoes the prices is the most effective. . There is one editor in heaven, says an essay in an Indiana weeklv, though how he got there the Lord only knows, but it is supposed he rode in on tbe blind baggage or got a pass. When they found him they tried to turn bim out, but he refused to go. They hunted all over heaven for a lawyer to serve ejectment papers but one could not be found, so the editor held the fort and he is there to this day. Potatoes are so scarce and so expensive in Iowa this season that the Cedar Bapids Gazette recently perpetrated the following: "What experts pronounce real /potatoes have been discovered on a piece of rough land three miles from Linn, Fairfax county and there is wild excitement. * It is understood that claims .are being rapidly taken and mining operations will be conducted on a large scale. One potato taken out weights twenty-three karats." It is reported that at a lately held "experience meeting" an old comrade slowly arose to his 'feetllahd among other things solemnly announced that he believed himself to be tbe meanest old verteran in the Home; that he had been as brave as the bravest fighting for the Union, but that he had always been too much of a coward to buckle on the armor ind fight under the banner of the Great Captain, concluding Special Two cases extra heavy, large size, Cotton Blankets, white, gray or tan, per pair 45 Cents.

As soon as he seated himself, an "old boy who is" a litte bard of hearing immediately started the good old hymn, "If you get there before I do, Look out for me, I'm coming too." And then he wondered what the congregation was laughing at.—Michigan Vi- dette. "Owners of timbered lands- should bear in mind," said County Treasurer J. H. Wheeler, to a Cadillac News and Express representative, "tbe fact that through an amendment'to the tax law passed during the last session of the legislature it is unlawful to cut or remove any timber from any lands in this state after the 10th day of January in any year, until all taxes assessed againsc such lands have been paid, Township treasurers should see that no violations of this law are allowed while the tax rolls are in their hands. After the returns of delinquent taxes have been made to the county treasurer that officer Is empowered to take the necessary steps to enforce the law. The full scope of this amendment may be seen by consulting the session laws of 1901, pages 55, 72 and 73. A. O. V. w.
