Don't fail to hear Mr. McClure's lecture at the opera house tonight. Every parent should, and we believe many will be interested enough to hear this man, who is deputy superintendent of public instruction and who is well versed as to the needs to the schools of our state. The admission fee has been placed at 10c and because of this none need be kept away. Helon B. Allen arrived from Lansing Tuesday evening where he has been attending the high school and taking a course of short hand and stenography. He will be credited with the work he did in the Lansing high school and will enter and finish with the Clare high school class of '00. Helon has made rapid strides in the educational world in the past months. Easter exercises were observed at the various churches last Sunday. The eyening service at the Congregational church was largely attended and the entire program, consisting of recitations, vocal solos, quartet selections, and concluding with a cantata, was unusuallv well rendered. The uniqueness of the entertainment was due largely to the efforts of Misses Maude Rhoades and Fthel Elden. In answer to the inquiry of a tax payer recently published in the Sentinel, our aontemporary attempts to answer the query but as he has done so, not to the satisfaction of the inquirer, we are asked to say that an itemized aecount of the moneys spent last year in street inprovements will be greatly appreciated. In that Editor Canned has volunteered to answer the question, we take it for granted that be will be only too glad to give the itemized statement asked for. Our citizens will regret to learn of the death of H. N. Goodenowrf Holly, which occured Tuesday morning. Mr. Goodenow was for many years a resident of Clare, was a veteran in the civil war, and at the time of his death had reached the ripe age of eighty-two years. He leaves, beside bis wife, two sons and five daughters. Mrs. C, !N. Goodenow left on the morning train yesterday for Holly to attend the funeral and will return Saturday. Thus it is that the men who fought so valiantly for our rights and liberties are falling from the ranks one by one. Young man: one thing is certain: You must pay for your whistle in this world. Everything has its compensations. Extreme joy is followed by a season of the heart rending penance. Sorrow and pain enables us to appreciate small blessings. Life is made up of sunshine and clouds; of calm and storm. Eyery pleasure has a sting at the bottom of it and he who makes an effort to rifle life of its sweets will end in despair or suicide. Pain follows iu the wake of pleasure as a shadow. Amid the roses fierce repentance rears its snaky crest. Therefore: my son go not in the pursuit of phantoms lest you be torn to pieces by sirens of passion. Seek not pleasure in a beer mug; nor happiness in the tents of the wicked. Be virtuous and saw wood. The Star Lecture Course opened as auspiciously on Saturday evening as its most ardent promoters and managers could possibly desire. More than the required number of season tickets had been disposed of, and had the traveling been good many single tickets would have been sold. Although the lecturer, De Witt Miller, was a stranger to a Bradford audience, he had not gotten very far into his topic, "The Uses of Ugliness," before he enjoyed the intimate attention of all who were so fortunate as to be listeners, and held them with his al most matchless oratory, philosophy and wit to the close, occupying over an hour and a hal t. To say that Bradford surrendered completely to his remarkable talent as a lecturer would be no exaggeration, and the wish is expressed on every hand that he may be engaged to again lecture here in the not remote future.—United Opinion, Bradford, Ft. At Opera house, April 23, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. McWatty of Harrison were in the city this morning by their way to Gilmore where to, morrow they attend the funeral of her grandfather, Prince Bobbins, who was killed in his mill near McBain Wednesday, Mrs. Abigail Bauder, aged eighty- seven years, died at the home of her son, Robert* near Leaton on the 16th inst. She was the mother of Wm. and David Bauder of this place. The funeral sermon was preached at theM. E. church in Leaton and the remains were intered in the cemetry southwest of Rosebush. We are this week sending out statements to all subscriber* whose subscription has expired, or who are in arrears. We do this for several reasons, the principle one ot which Is that we want money. Never before have we been gently approached on the subject of Easter millinery, and we are just commencing to realize something of the expenses of running a household,—all of which rapidly consume the profit on subscriptions—then; too. many people, because of not haying their attention called to the fact tihat their subscription has expired, let accounts run till they become larger than they wish to pay, We bavethe largest circulation in the countv by far and while we wish to continue to lead in this particular we are not so over zealous to do so that we will carry several hundred people .who have little'or no intention to pay for our time and trouble. The Sentinel is $1 per year in advance; $1,25 when not so paid, but we prefer payment in advance. It you receive- a statement, please call and settle at once and thus save us further trouble. We are aware that the country correspondent department 'of a local newspaper is read by more people doubtless than any other department, and so it is that we have endeavored to get as good reporters for this work as we possibly could—and right here we wish to say that we fully appreciate the efforts that have been made by our worthy corps of correspondents— but our attention has been called to the fact that items creep into the columns occasionally which are indeed the meerest mention. We would suggest that our reporters give more attention to improvements in your respective districts. It is a fact that the great majority of people enjoy picking up a local paper and reading an article regarding some achievment he himself has made, though we are also aware that he is not usually willing to admit this. This is a suggestion which we trust our reporters will take in tbe same kindly spirit in which it is offered. Giye us the news and giye us all the news, We realize the fact as we presume all do, that we retain the censorship on all matter coming in for publication, yet we feel that it is more satisfactory to you and to us to have an understanding regarding this matter, so that when you write an item for publication you are tolerably sure it will not be rejected. (More local on fifth page.) New Brick Block. The work of excayation for the Doherty-Duncan block basement was commenced Tuesday, ten to twelve teams working constantly, and this morning everything is in readiness for the laying of a foundation, The Contract for doing the brick and stone work has been let to Granger and Manley of Mt. Pleasant, who will commence the work in the near future. The building will be two stories high and will consist of six store fronts The entire frontage is 130 feet and runs back seventy feet. Mr. Doherty will have the four fronts to the north and the others will doubtless be occupied by Mr. Duncan. Already most of the rooms are rented. This block will be an excellent addition to our city and will tend to increase the valuation of the other prop- erty.in that block. We feel sure the citizens appreciate the efforts of these gentlemen to beautify our city, especially Mr.^Doherty, who has been tbe prime mover in nearly every movement that has placed our city where it is today,—-to him we owe the opera house, the electric light plant, the Bell telephone, several fine residences, and it is largely through "his efforts that we have the fine school building that we have. He has ever been on the alert to make Clare a thriving town.
