"N.Tillotson, who has been at work on the work train t near Olio for the past weeks, returned home Saturday night. Before returning he expects to attend the state encampment of the G. A. R. at Grand Rapids which convenes next Wednesday. On the fifth page of this paper appears an ad for the Foster Furniture Co. of Mt. Pleasant. This firm has three furniture stores in the state and buying for the three at one time get prices that are hard to beat. It will pay you to get their prices before buying furniture. The uniform rank, K. of P., is drilling regularly these days preparatory to attending the national convention which convenes at Detroit some time in August. Our boys look forward to an enjoyable time, and we have no doubt will properly acquit themselves In this dill. While working for Fred,Lister near Millersburg last week Milt Lee was struck by the limb of a tree and the rieb.*-. arm broken between the elbow and shoulder. He came at once to hishctue in Clare where he will remain until he has entirely recovered from the injury. E. A. White left last week for Ohio where he was tendered two positions. We learn later that he is now in Indianapolis, Indiana, that he likes the city and having been offered a lucrative position will doubtless remain there, in which event his family will at once move to Indiana's capital. O wing to the.f act that half of Fourth street near Gorr's mill is covered with logs, a runaway occured last evening. The four occupants of the buggy were quite badly scared, considerably shaken up, some pretty badly .hurt and the buggy is nearly a wreck, The question now is, "Who will pay the damages?" We have heard tell of apple trees blossoming in the fall of the year, but never until this week have we seen an apple tree bear full grown roses. John Hanes of Sheridan brought in a sprig from one of his apple trees with a small apple on one sprig and a rose, on the same sprig. Boundless are the advantages "Nature has given the human mind for development. As predicted, the eclipse was visible in this section of the country and although the sun was in obscurity much of the time from seven to nine Monday it shone a sufficient length of time to allow those who thought to get a view of the eclipse. It was only partial, about a third not being obscured The eclipse was caused by the moon passing between the sun and the earth and caused a total eclipse in some latitudes. The ball game Wednesday between Mt. Pleasant and Clare drew a larger attendance than has a ball game for some time, but as the visiting team had the advantage of our boys in weight, age and practice, they easily won out, the score standing 10 to 0 in favor of the visitors. Our battery, Crepar and Schoonover. though light, did excellent work and had our playeM given them better support, the game would not haye been so onesided. On the morning train Wednesday arrived Mrs. Carrie L. Eaton from Roswell, New Mexico, and she will here spend'the larger part of her ya- cation. Mrs. Eaton has taught in Roswell for three years and likes the southwest very much. During her absence from Clare she has seen much of the'west, having spent much of One summer traveling in California and "Old Mexico." While in Oakland, Cali fornia, she visited at the home of Dt. and Mrs. Todd, formerly of Clare. The Passion Play of Oberammergau, Bavaria, an event of world-wide interest, opened yesterday. The cast is composed of 900 people, all of whohi are residents of Oberammergau, arid this year Anton Lang, junior, a pbt- ter by tiade, represents Jesus Christ, and Anna Flunger will represent "Mary, the mother of Jesus." The play is put on at regular Intervals'.all through the summer every ten years, and people from every nation attend. The new Passion theatre will seat 5000 people and cost $100,000. The memorial sermon by Rev. M. Knowles Sunday was a strong one and contained many points which are sure to be remembered by those who were in attendance. He said it* is ordained that the gospel shall be preached in all nations and if the missionaries that are sent out by the church cannot enter these countries without endangering their lives'; th^t UuncleSam will send some of his missionaries and with the jrifie make a way for the peaceful advocaters of the Christian principles. Of the two it is far more expensive to send the latter. , '■/$ O. W, Perry and J. A. Jackson left Tuesday for "New York from which port tomorrow they sail for Europe. It is their intention to take in the world's fair at Paris and visit the various points of interest in England, France, Switzerland, and Germany, and they will doubtless witness the passion play at Oberammergau, Bavaria. Before leaving, tbeir friends gave them a little party at the home of Mr, Jackson. There is no doubt these gentlemen will get their money's worth. The Sentinel bids them godsped and wishes them a safe return. The date of the republican state convention is fixed and will be held at Grand Ranids, dune 27. Though It was understood that our esteemed townsman, D. E. Alward, the present efficient reading clerk of the national house of'representatives, was to be made chairman of the state central committe, he was elected at Grand Rapids this week without opposition. Mr. Alward having had practical experience in managing campaigns heretofore and having a wide acquaintance wi fch the workers of the party in-the state, no better man could be selected for the place. We called upon Prof. O. B. Chaffee the first of the week and while there he showed us some very interesting relics of antiquity which he has from time to time collected. From an excavation on the banks of Seneca lake, "New York, he has an Indian peace pipe made from burned blue clay and this pipe was doubtless used in settling many disputes in days long gone by. He also has an Indian skull taken from the same place, besides many arrow heads. A large number of skeletons were found in this locality, which is not strange when we stop to consider that this was the place where in 1779 Gen. Sullivan fought and defeated the Indians, inflicting a great loss to the foe. Mr. Chaffee has a nice collection of canes, one especially being a valuable article, it having been cut from timber preserved since 1790. The fireman's concert at the opera house last Monday night was well attended and the performances well appreciated, proof ot which is shown by the fact that every person appearing on the program received an encore. Miss Bemice Cook of Mt. Pleasant appeared in several vocal solos and though her voice is not heavy, she sang charmingly. Will Adams made a great hit when he sang, a song especially composed for the benefit of the city council exalting (?) that worthy body for the tender care they haye taken of the city park, and the trustees of the Congregational church for providing the excellent cement walk (?) in front of the church property. What was said of Wm. Hirzel's performances at the concert one year ago may well be repeated as applying on this occasion, except that time improves Wm's ability along this line. The firemen netted about $27 from the entertainment, Siwmtmnmmmmmmwmmw m* H Special*, »■ Sale Men's Fine SHIRTS All- Styles H SO ceqis* 0, 0. avy and ompany Tjhe S&usy Stores, 1^1 eW— Week Ware Most Popular Shapes in Newest Styles 25cai)d50c- An attractive line of Trimmed and Ready to Wear Hats on sale at all times.

After but a week's' illness, at her home in this city, occurred the death of Mrs. Benj. Daugherty, on Friday of last week, as briefly noted in the Sentinel. Deceased was bom iu Wayne county, Ohio, February 28, 1852, and came with her parents to Mt. Pleasant nine years later, in 1869 she was united in marriage with Benjamin Daugherty and with him moyed to Clare in 1879, which place has since been her home. Mrs. Daugherty waB mother of four children, three of whom still survive: Edwin, of Boyne City, James and "Nettie of Clare. Besides these she leaves a husband. She was a devoted member of the church of God, and, a respected member Of the W. R. 0.; a mother who lived for her children, and was well respected by a large circle of acquaintances. The funeral was conducted from the home Sunday at two o'clock p. m., Rev. Barclay officiating and the remains laid at. rest in Cherry Grove cemetery. Both her sons belotsging, or having belonged, to the fire, department, that body attended the funeral in uniform. Those attending the funeral from outside the city are: Her mother, Mrs. "N". J. HasKell of Mt» Pleasant, James Brady and Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Brady of Gratiot county, Mr. and Mrs. Orvie Alger, Wm. and Solomon Daugherty aud wives and Mrs. P. Gardner Of Mt* Pleasant. The Sen tinbi. joins the many friends of the family in this expression of sVmpathy. Card of Thanks. We wish to express our sincerest thanks to the many friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted us in these dark hours, and to the Are department and all others whose kind deeds will be remembered. Benj. Daugherty and Family. Think. I speak lor the mothers, I speak lor the Wives, I speak for the lost and blighted lives; I speak for childhood degraded through drink, And ah, men of Clare, I ask you to think. Oh I Judge on y'r bench, pray think of it -well, That the license "you grant sends men into hell;. Oh! Lawyer plead as you'd plead for y'r life, Against the Saloon that breeds danger and strife. Oh, Minister all of God's judgments show, Against those who give of this dark cup of ■woe; And that none a home in heaven may win. Who drink or who sell of this liquid of sin. Would you draw helpless ones from Chasm's brink? Or back from the task would you shrink, Would you say my own are all safe and secure, And why should I trouble for others' endure? Would you idly stand or with actions tame, When y'r home was enwrapped in a aery Samel 2" Or unarmed and helpless would you stand, • WhUe the foeman's fleet approaohed y'r land. Oh, No; you are men and Would dare not do, To the helpless .and weak you ore constant, true; But you list to the song the Syren sings And think, not of the woe and sorrow it brings. Oh think of each lost and ruined life, Of the hungry ohlld and wretched wife; Of the helpless slaves of the demon,—drink, Whatthey might be y'r owp; oh, my brother, think. —Jtjija A. Norton,, THE CONTRACT LEX. A. J. Doherty Will Light ana! Water the City for the Next Five Years, At a recent meeting of the board at' aldermen, A. J. Doherty* was let the- contract to run the water works and-* light the city for the next Ave y^ar*. A. J. Doherty agrees to build a building for the water works plant under the direction of the council to cost not less than 8300, and he is to have the-two old wornout boilers and brick; to furnish, the city the use of his steam plan t composed of a 200-horse power boiler and & 60-horse power boiler to be placedin the near future; to furnish water for sprinkling Main street; to light the city hall and hose houses; to furnish fourteen 2000-candle power arc lights to burn from candle light till twelve o'clock sun "time, except w-hen the moon shines, As a compensation for this he wiH receive for running the water works per year, $1368.75; for the arc lights each per month, $3,75, or $630 .per year; for lighting the hose housesaod. council rooms per year, $18.00; Bjaking a total monthly expenditure Cor famishing both light and water, *188.48. We feel confident that stll fair mipded citizens who know aaything about the expenses in conneotSoo'watfa these plants will feel elated to t/binfc that this matter is settled tea live years at least and those who "had to bear tbe responsibility of maklss the contract are indeed relieved of s, buf- den not easy for anyone to bear. tf£J J u*.
