latshliUliHd 1878. GLARE MICH., FKIBAY MARQEU7, 1899. New Series: Vol.7, No. 10, —xnssassaa ■ \ ef. | Sni@r**£@zkem | ©•'C^@S^',^©'^^'S',^'S*'^©'t^'*^©''^© A contemporary tells of a dead editor at whose funeral 677 delinquent subscribers marched by and viewed the remains. Of that number 676 muttered sadly. "He was an industrious, bright, and good man, but—he couldn't save anything." Thomas Terry of Clare, brought his second wild cat skin within a year to Clerk Rowlader last Tuesday, and got a certificate for $3, the bounty allowed jointly by state and county. The wild cat bagged previously by Mr. Terry, and for which he also received $3, was the biggest one ever killed in this part of the state. An exchange says that it is a fact well worth remembering to users of in- candescant electric lights that broken wires'in the bulbs may often be mended in a simple manner. By turning the current on and shaking the bulb the broken ends will often come together and the8 electricity will weld them firmly, making them as good . as new. Try this the next time you have a broken lamp; it may save the cost of a new one. At twenty, when a man is young, he thinks he knows it all; he likes to wag his active tongue and exercise his gall; he struts around in noble rage—the world is all bis own; he laughs in scorn the world of age, and lists to self alone. He wears a window in -his eye to see his mustache grow; he thinks the ladies pine and die because they love him so. At forty, as you may , suppose, he buckles down to biz, but Its not till sixty that he knows just how bier a fool he is. A man who chewed twenty cents' woith of tobacco a week concluded to try a tobacco cure. In two weeks he Hto up $1.50 worth of candv, five cents' wm ib of peanuts and Ave cents'woith of cough drop-1. During these two weeks he also consumed two large rubber eracers, ate the rubber tips from fourteen lead r-encils, chewed up a dozen pen-holders an*l browsed off his mustache as high as he could reach. He is now chewing tobacco in the interest of economy.—Ex. When one hog gets an ear of corn every other hog will trot along behind and squeal and beg ind are ready for a bite; but just let that hog get his head fast in a fence and every other one will jump on him and try to tear him to pieces. Just so it is with men. As long as a man is prospering and has money he has friends. The moment he is unfortunate and his wealtngone, he is noo only snubbed by his former alleged friends but they do him all the harm possible. When a man starts up grade the world falls .behind and pushes; but when he starts down grade the world stands aside and greases the track. Twenty years ago Henry Baragar, of Greenville, kept a hotel at Hears, Oceana county, and while there he had a tiair of whiffletrees stolen. A few days since Mr. Baragar received a letter in which was inclosec3. a $12 check. The writer of the letter, who now lives in "Nebraska, said he was the thief, and had been converted and the , Lord wanted him to pay for them. He had made inquiries as to the value of such articles 20 years ago and found them to be worth about $2.50, but to make sure, he valued them at $4, and adding 10 per cent interest for 20years sent the full amount, $12, for the articles for the purposeof giying his conscience ea9e. A school girl recently defined the word "kiss" as follows: **Kiss" is a conjunction because it connects. It is a verb because it signifies to act and be acted upon. It is a preposition because it shows that the person kissed Is no relation. It is an interjection, at least it sounds like one. It is a pronoun because it always stands for a noun. It is also a noun because it is cbe name of the osculatory action. It is quite common,fal.though proper and always plural number. In gender it is masculine and feminine mixed. Frequently the case is governed by circumstances and light. It should always begin with a capital letter, be often repeated, continued as long as possible and ended, with a period. "Kiss," might be congugated, but ought never to be declined. When you come to think of it', Adam aad Eve were very fortunate people. Adam never had to run dead beats tylth the house dog. He did not even liavc to sit in the parlor and talk poli- fcies with Eve's father, When Eve -sHBibed a tree, Adam didn't have to write letters and spend long hours of anxiety and postage to make it up, says an exchange. All he had to do was to sit down under the tree and wait till Eve's temper recovered its normal sweetness. He never patronized confectionery stores; he plucked a nice pine apple and presented it with his compliments. Theirs was a beautiful dream of wedded life. When Eve wanted a new dress Adam went to the nearest fig tree and got it. And Eve never felt called upon to mend a bursted buttonhole or take all the blame when he stumbled over a rocking chair. It was a monopoly of unadulterated comfort; and if Eve had only had the feminine sagacity to lift up her skirts and scream when she saw the snake that time, we would not be having all this trouble.
