An exchange says that the styles of female wearing apparel in Iceland ^ have not changed in over 100 years. * In this connection it is perhaps 'not amiss to call the attention of our contemporary to the fact that the styles of female wearing apparel in some of the newely acquired American possessions in the orient has not changed materially since before the fall of Eve, A teacher who was in the habit of iDflictlng punishment in the truly primitive way,"smarted to administer «i spanking to a boy who screamed at the top of his voice "Don't strike there, you'll hurt my bile," created quite a sensation, but there was a lurking suspicion on the part of some |^4I that it was only a ruse, while those more intimately acquainted with the lad, insisted that he had no bolt at all. A maiden fair with sun kissed hair, came tripping down the s>treet; with face serene—her age sixteen; but gee . ■, wiiiz wasn't she sweet. On a banana **" peel slick she came down quick, with a jolt that shook out her curls; but tbe words she used must be excused, for she is one of our nicest girls.

A new posSoillce was established in a s"raall village in the northern part of the state, and a native was appointed postmaster. After a while complaints were made that no mail was sent out from the new office, and an inspector wus sent to inquire into the matter. He. called upon the postmaster and y- asked why no mail had been sent out. The postmaster pointed to a big and nearly empty mail bag hanging up in a corner and said: "Well, I ain't sent it out 'cause the bag ain't nowhere nigh full yet," The flag floating over the Wliite ~4 House in Washington indicates to all who see it-that the president is at .home Whenever he is out of that city the flag is carefully folded away. The same custom prevails at the capi- tol. Wheneyer either house of congress is in session the flag flies over the wing of the building which that house occupies. If there is an evening session a britrht light in the dome tells the story. This is. in Washington, what might be termed the "language of the flag."

The carnival was a success—a complete success and all the ladies who worked so indefablgably to that end are deserving of unstinted praise. Ho one who did not haye a .part in the exercises can appreciate the amount of hard work the preparation of the exercises made necessary. Mrs. Dewey Allen drilled the ladies for the march and showed again her superb ability as a director. Nearly every business house in Clare was represented, the ladies all being attired ib costumes wnicb were both unique and becoming. Good taste and_ considerable ingenuity were evidenced in the "get up" of the banners and costumes, and it would be a hard task indeed to determine whichNwas most attractive. Each had an individuality of its own aud all together afforded opportunity for amusement and words of praise as the intricate flgures of the long march were executed. Applause was liberally bestowed, and impartially, by an audience such as, for size, seldom congregates in Clare. The Doherty opera house was crowded to the utmost capacity, stage, floor, balcony, gallerj and aisles being all occupied. Aside from the carnival march, the cake walk by several couples of ten-year- olds, attracted the most applause. The little folks did themselves proud. The program also included piano solos by Misses Dunwoodie, Wilson aud Wait and Mrs. O.' M. Sutherland, a monologue by Mr. Will Adams, vocai solos by Mell Buell and duet by Miss Wait and R. M. Mussell, recitations by Mrs. Lucius Converse and Miss Belle Ironmonger and a skirt dance by little Miss Moore of Saginaw. A quartet, composed of Messrs. Lee Dunwoodie, Otis Halsted,. Frank Kelly and Ray Holbrook. favored the audience with selections. Io was a program which for excellence is seldom equealed. NOTES. Too much praise cannot, be accorded Mr. A. J. Doherty and his two sons, Fiayd and Frank, for the manner in which the large audience was bandied and their jomfoit looked to. They all worked like Trojans. floating, It was a task of no mean proportion as just one little- break in the time might have proved disastrous to the step of the ladies in line. In dispensing praise the management will plea3e bear in mind that Kirk- bride's orchestra should receive a goodly portion, DAVY & COMPANY. > In the treatment of Mr. Will Adams who kindly and willingly gave hjs services, adding much to the entertainment, many condemnatory remarks have been heard. After rehearsing his part of the program in the afternoon it would have only been courtesy to have Jet him finish. Ifc was an iu- sult of the most glaring kind and one which the aud ence would have resented had they realized it at the time. What right the person had who delej ^ated to herself the authority of crossing off that number on the program we have yet failed to learn. There were people in thataudience who were just as good christians and just as capable of distinguishing the right from the wrong. We can see no right and proper reason why those several hundred people in the audience should be debaired from further enjoying Mr. Adams' part of the program by a mistaken idea of its propriety. We regret the incident, but satisfy ourselves with the reflection that some people will "strain at a gnatand swallow a camel," Card of Thanks, The promoters of the business carnival desire to express their deep sense of gratitude to all who so kindly assisted them in the march, and especially would they return thanks to the business men who responded so generously, thebrchestra, A, J. Doherty and sons and to their enthuastic iind genial captain, Mrs. D, Allen, OBITUARY. Mrs. Thomas Holbrook, Sr. It is with regiet that we announce the death Of Mrs. Thos, Holbrook, Sr., at 3:35 this morning, at the family residence. The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the house. Richard Hales and Mrs. J, D. Allen weie in Saginaw over Sunday to attend the funeral of Lewis Hales, the unfortunate young man who was killed on the P. & P. M. track near New Boston, The deceased was a nephew of Lewis, Richard and Lizzie Halos of Vernon, at which place he lived while young, later moving to Saginaw where he entered tlio employ of the F. & P, M. ns fireman. His many friends here as well as in Saginaw will be grieved to hear of his terrible fate for to know him was to admire him. His wife of a year and parents have the deepest sympathy of their Vernon friends. We must take exception to the de- aision of tbe judges relative to the cake-walk. In one sense the decision was right, in another it was not. It is not fair to suppose that our little people, who were amateurs, could successfully cope with their associates from Saginaw who have received no little instruction in that particular line. One might as well expect that any one of our little girls, after a few instructions, could equal the little skirt dancer. The two young people from Saginaw were extremely graceful and performed their part in a most creditable manner and were entitled to e-'ery graceful recognition possible for their services, but not to the extent as given. While everyone in the audience was greatly interested in the ladies in the march and enjoyed the music furnished for the occasion and gave expression of sympathy for the marchers, yet, we venture the assertion that but few, if any, thought of the orchestra and the strain upon them in the rendition of continual music. From ttie time the parade commenced until the last participant, passed out of the auditor*, ium the orchestra kept the strains Death of Ella Regan. We regret to announce the death of Ella Regan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Patrick Regan, of Vernon township, which sad event occurred in Detroit, Wednesday, March 22. Deceased was 24 years of age. She came to Michigan with her parents in 1889, where sho remained until one year ago when she accepted a position in Detroit, where she remained up to the time of her death. The remains were brought to the home of her parents and the funeral being held from St. Henry's cburch at ten o'clock Saturday morning, Rev, Fr, Malone, officiating. Notwithstanding the intense storm the funeral was attended by a large cortage of friends and acquaintances. There remains to mourn her death besides father and mother, one sister and six brothers. They are: Mrs. J. Lynch of Mt. Car-rial, Canada; who was unable to attend on account of sickness, Dennis, Timothy and John or Calkinsville, Patrick of Ottawa, Oanaaa, Daniel of Bay City and William of Mt. Pleasant. The pall bearers were James McCon- nell, Patrick Battle, John McElhen- ery, John Mahar and Thaddeas Crowley. Green be tho turf above thee, Friend of our better days! Noneltnew thee but to love thee, Nor named thee but to praise. When hearts, whose truth was proven, Like thine, are laid in earth, There should a'wreath be woven To tell the world their worth. While memory bids me weep thee, Nor thoughts nor words aro free, The grief is fixed too deeply That mourns a child like thee. —■Win. Wordsworth. Snap it Quick.
