We look back with grateful recollections upon your impartiality aud courtesy whilst you occupied the Ou'en- tal chair. Your kindly bearing, just interpretation and enforcement of the rules of order, and your zealous efforts in our behalf have greatly assisted us in our Masonic work and have won from us an acknowledgment of that high respect and warm personal esteem always due to tbe faithful performance of official duties. As the fleeting years glide by may this jewel be treasured Dy you. Not for ,ts intrinsic yalue, but as a memorial of this occasion, and as an assurance that our love to you is true, and our desire for the future happiness of you and yours is deep, Further, may it be emblematic of our obedience to a certain divine injunction, and may we, each one, be enabled by the Grace of the Most High, to realize and appreciate in all its beauty and comprehensiveness that great commandment, the epitome of all Masonic duty: "Love thy neighbor as thyself." We bid you God speed upon your journey through life, and when tbe .sands thereof have ceased to run, and the last earthly alarm shall have been .sounded and the last roll call shall have been heard, and you have passed to that Celestial lodge above, presided over by the Grand Master of the Universe, there to be initiated into the sublime mysteries of perfect universal brotherhood; may it be said of you: "Well done good and faithful brother."

Rockafeli.oav, Sec, Brother Mussell feelipgly responded in the following language: Bbetheen:—Accept my heartfelt thanks for the exceedingly kind and courteous sentiments evinced toward me iu the address which I have just heard, Paidonme, if in the embarrassment of the moment, the words at nry command but feebly convey to you my suprise and pleasure, and the warmth of my gratitude, and my appreciation of the brotherjy love which has prompted your address and the gift of this beautiful jewel, the Masonic emblem of uprightness which you have considered me worthy of wearing. It is needless for me to say that 1 shall always treasure it as a pleasant memento of my years of intimate relationship with the brethren of 404. From my initiation as an catered apprentice until I had received at your hands ihe highest honor in 3*our gift, that of election tothechair, I have always oeen as no a* prompted by a deep interest in masonry and a sincere admiration for the uoble principals of our beloved order. In alluding to my occupancy ot tbe chair in such flattering terms I fear that you have been swayed by that kindness which has always characterized your conduct toward me whatever my shortcomings may have been. I can say conscientiously that my earnest desire has ever been to preserve inviolable the sacred- rights which you had entrusted to my care. To rule the lodge firmly and impartially and to deal fairly and honorably with each one of you. And 1 am well aware that eyen the slight measure of my success is entirely owing to your hearty co-operation and loyalty to' me on all occasions. I most thoroughly appreciate your many acts of brotherly love and forbearance and assure you that my intercourse with you lias taught me to realize that in grasping the hand of a mason and. especially a member of John Q.Look lodge, 1 grasped the hand of a brother. 1 shall al ways consider this place my home while I remain with you and I sipcerely hope that we may all finally be reunited and sheltered beneath tbe roof of the lodge of tbe Supreme Architect of the Universe.

Calling a. Man a Liar, Tbe Texas legislature is considering a bill which is of interest to liars there and everywhere else. If this becomes a law, proof that a man has been called a liar will become a full defense in assault and oattery. This is to say, the man with the battered nose, blackened eye and hiatused front teeth will learn in a court justice tbat it "served bim rigbV says the New York World. The law governing iiar-s in other states vary. In Kentucky it is a misdemeanor punishable by a $20 fine to call any man a. liar, and a police justice of Louisville has declared from his bench that a lie In Kentucky means a blow. This memorable declaration was given in discharging honorably a man who had knocked down another fellow for calling him a liar and had been brought to court to answer. In Virginia, by the law of 1895-1896, a man who calls another man a liar is guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction may be fined not more than $25. In Georgia it is slander, punishable by $1,000 fine or a year in tbe penitentiary, or both, to call a man a liar unless you can prove that he is one in which case you can get clear. The Georgia courts hold that a lie constitutes the first blow and justifies a violent response. In Arkansas passing the lie is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine. In- Mississippi insulting words aie civilly actionable. In South Carolina and West Virginia the Bame. • Annual Tax Sales, In supplement form in this issue will be found the list of lands which will be sold for taxes the first Tuesday in May next.

Adams, Prop. 5043 Watch the "Want ad" department for bargains. HON. PJEX3ER F. DODDS, The Rephlican Nominee for Judge of this Circuit, The renominatlon by the Republicans, of the Hon. Peter F, Dodds for re-election as Circuit Judge of this circuit, will meet with the approval of every fair-minded citizen in the circuit and that be will be re-elected goes without saying. Few men have, as jurists, gained so enviable areputation as he during the time in which he has occupied the bencb. His senseof duty towards the taxpayers as well as tbe litigants in court, always has been a noticeable feature in his conduct as a judge. His knowledge pf the law and keen perceptibilities in judging human nature has ever made him a man quick to act, and to determine the rights of parties ii an exceedingly speedy manner. His rulings in proceedings before bim have never been found arbitrary, and ifc is universally said, regardless of party politics, that his methods of conducting sessions of court has saved thousands of dollars to tbe taxpayers of Clare County and we may safely add, in tbe other counties in tbe circuit, Being a man of high motives and having tbe moral courage to honestly fulfill the duties of his do- sition that justice may be done, at all hazards, he has won tbe respect and esteem of every one who desires justice, and justice only, administered between man and man. Judge Dodds furthermore has a strong support among the attorneys in the circuit. That they all admire him and his just metlioos of procedure while presiding at- trials is another evidence of bis fairness and fitness for the position. In his manner be is always pleasant, yet firm, and never plays to the audience but has his heart and mind only on doing justice in the most simple and speedy manner. Judge Dodds is not only an able jurist, but a man in every sense of the word, To meet him is a pleasure never to be forgotten^ except it may be in the case where criminals are compelled to meet and stand before him to receive sentence, and even tben bis acts in pronouncing judgment are tempered with mercy as much as possible in the interests of justice. The voters of the circuit and those identified with ics interests and solicitous of the welfare thereof have only to look upon his past record to be convinced that Judge Dodds is the right man in tbe right pla:e. Seldom indeed are any of the cases tried before him reversed In the supreme court. No judge in Michigan has a better record and we think we can safely say, as good. At tbe convention in which he was nominated he received the vote of every delegate )n the convention. Not a dissenting voice lias been nised throughout tbe circuit and eyen tbe opposing political parties can say only good words for him. Let the Republicans see to it thab eyery voter casts his vote for bim, and thus express, by an overwhelming majority thab they approve of his honorable administration and desire that he continue to serve the people as judge of this circuit, Judicial Resolutions. At the Judicial Convention held in this city Thursday, Feb. 16, the following resolution was passed: Resolved, That this convention endorse tbe excellent administration of our President William McKinley. The Republican party may well be proud of such a leader, defender of the oppressed, and tbe oppressor's foe. We commend the swift and thorough crushing of the Spanish power in bhe western Hemisphere and have confidence in the administration to deal properly with the Philippine question, We commend the administration of our State in the manner in which the defenders of our flag were cared for and tbe interest taken by our Goyenor in their welfare at home and in tbe field. We endorse the Republican State platform in the effort made to bring about equal taxation and look for the present legislature to solve the problem. We endorse the admirable Judicial record of tbe Hon, Peter F. Dodds Circuit Judge) as being one in the interest of bhe people and bhe f uther- ance of justice. Whereas, Since last we met iu this capaoiby we have been called bo mourn bhe loss of the Hon. Henry Hart late Circuit Judf je of this Circuit, Therefore Resolved, Thab this Convention make mention of their love and esteem for his memory and the 3orrow they feel at his death.
