Crowley, of Mt. Pleasant, has been taken to a Saginaw hospital for medical treatment. * A bill has been introduced in the legislature to provide for killing all dogs on which the tax is not paid, A Park Lake juror convicted a man of an assault upon a twelve-year-old girl and he was let off with a fine of $30, Three Isabella county men were fined $10 each Monday for Ashing with spears and Jack lights on Cold water lake. The first wool marketed at Mt. Pleasant this year consisted of 39 fleeces aggregating 335 pounds in v/eight. Farwell is already preparing for the proper observance of Decoration Dav. Prof. Chaffee has been invited to deliver the oration, Ithaca had a prize fight the, other day. This is a legitimate result of the education afforded by the ''scrapping" over circuit judge down there last month. A Winterfleld correspondent writes to the Marion Leader that Theron Davis, a former Olare county boy who has for the past six years resided In northern Michigan and Wisconsin met with an accident recently, while braking on a train and has since died. M. B, Conklin who for years has been railroad agent at Loomis, has been transferred to Hersey, a better position at a better salary. Mr. Conk- lin's departure is a distinct loss to Loomis and he will go to his new duties with the best wishes of a host of Mends, who, while regretting to have him go, will rejoice at his advancement. Prof. C. B. Chaffee, superintendent of the Farwell schools, was in Clare Monday on business connected with'the commencement exercises of his school in June. Prof, Chaffee graduates a class of eleven this year. Albert Wiseman accompanied him in his visit to Clare. The Midland Republican is trying to work up a sensation over the death of Mr. Michael Scrvetus, which event occurred a few hundred years ago. It appears that a Mr. Calvin was mixed up in the affair. The Eepublican's investigation so far has established the fact that both parties are still dead. Good fresh news must be awfully scarce in Midland. The latest ruturns indicate that both the good roads and additional St. Ciare circuit judge ammendments have without doubt carried, while the printing office ammendment has been defeated by about 2,500, and - the intermediate court by 1,800. The program now Is to push a bill to increase the number of supreme justices to nine. The supreme court consists of five justices. We made a funny mistake last week in an item concerning the recent judicial contest in thi3 district, referring to "ex-Republican Hopkins" instead of to would-be Judge Fancher. The philosophical comments in the item, however, applied to one as well as to the other, and at any rate, in view of the fact that Judge Dodds got almost all the votes, we couldn't be greatly blamed for forgetting the name of his opponent. Leach & Thompson's saw mill at Dover has started up for the summer's run. The mill yard is piled full of logs, oand as they are custom logs hauled in by farmers who live in the vicinity of Dover, it is safe to say that there will be a great amount of building thereabouts this year, This is another encouraging sign and proves that the country is feeling the good effect of better times as well as the Cities and towns. Wm. Whitney, ot Mt. Pleasant, dropped dead on the street of that city Monday. He was apparently as well as ever up to the moment of decease ana stood talking with friends when he fell. Doctors state that his death was instantaneous and that he was probably dead before be started to fall. Years ago Mr. Whitney lived in Clare and was well known to very -many of our citizens who will be pained to learn of his demise. The following item from the Mt. Pleasant .Democrat, refers to an ex- Clareite: W. 3. XeBey who has been to the cigar manufacturing business in this city for the. past four years, this week moved his stock and household goods to Ogdenburg, Penn., where he will make his future home. Both Mr. Kelley and his wife are well and favorably known in - Clare and their many friends here will hope that their new move may prove to be a goo3 thing for them. Davy & Company have opened a general store at Leota, Clare county, and .Eugene Boughton, from the JEvart store, left last Monday to take charge of the business at that point. Leota is 35 miles up the Muskegon river at a point where the F, & P. M. R'y Co. have built a dam and extended their Harrison branch, and they intend doing an extensive business in handling timber. Already there are located there two shingle and tie mills, and other industries are irii contemplation. The Mo. Pleasant common council has granted a franchise to do electric lighting in that city. The condition is that the company pay a franchise fee of 2i per cent on gross receipts above $6,000, The company expects to begin operations as soon as they- can make contracts with construction companies. The plant will be a first- class, up-to-date, direct arc system, with Thompson Houstonlong-burning arc lamps.' The incandescent light will be 104 volts or more than double the pressure now given. I SGftOQL DEPARTMENT | 3-«**>©-*^®<^Q'*3i*©©.-^©'"^>®'*Es-©,*,6,>'© By fl, fl. fiLDftlCH, Commissioner. Our County Schools. The article below is taken from a book entitled, "Let Him First be a Man." Every teacher and parent in the county ought to read this book. WHAT IS A MAN? "Let him first be a man." But what is a man? There are so many ideas and so few ideals. Some one relates that an English school-girl answered the question "What is the difference between man and brute?" by saying "The brute is an imperfect j beast; man is a perfect beast." Shall our education deyelop such an animal? What kind of a man shall our Amei- ican boy become before he begins the special duties of life? What shall be his preconceived notion of success? To judge by the Plutonic standards which may follow, success consists mainly in acquiring riches'. "How much is he worth?" means not at all what is his intrinsic value, but how much money has he? If the power to pile up wealth is the chief end of school training, being the chief end of man, then should the conscientious schoolmaster train his pupil to be sharp and shrewd and self seeking. The boys should be taught to spell the word educate, e-d-u-c-a-t-e, to give edge to the mind. He who would cut his way to the manV-mansioned place of the millionnaire must be a keen blade. But how if the young man don't want, to be a money-maker? Perhaps, like Matthew. Arnold, he would prefer the heaven of "sweetness and light" to the Eden of riches. When Arnold .died his estate was valued at only a few thousand dollars, yet who will say this great iifter-up of civilization was an unsuccessful man or that he left the world no rich bequest? Who will say that Agassiz, whimsically said he had no time to waste in making money, was not a winner in life's battle? How beautifully other men drew golden swords for him that he might pursue the paths of science and so aid mankind! He needs must be about his Father's business, or, take the case cf Emerson, who, though he gained material fortune, did not seek it, but devoted himself to amassing a capital of thoughts and dreams,—-a millionnaire of ideas. Is it the object of our schools, or should it be, to make Vanderbilts, or Arnolds, or Emeraons? When we say, -'let him first be a man," do we have any particular man or class in view? Not at all. The shining lights of the world may serve to guide and illuminate all men; but each man must wurk 'out his own destiny self-impelled and directed by the inner lamp of individuality, or he can never become a "success" in any sense. Io is wrong to deceive children or college students with thebelief that the general training they receive from books and teachers will make them poets, or presidents, or railroad kings, or this or that. The knowledge, the study, the physical exercise, the desclpline of body and soul, which the school should afford, are to preserve an ideal typo,' not to differentiate a unit. Birst, the typical man, sound in body, sound in mind, endowed with the possession which the wisdom of 'ancient authority and the presence of modem reason have agreed to consider the best culture, and show tho practical man, exercising his special talent according to the bent of his will. ______ Report of Hinkleville school, for month ending April 21; Number of days taught, 18.

The SEmTSBii has received a communication from Rev, Benj. Graff of Farwell in which he says: "A person writing from Farwell to the "Michigan Catholic" reports me as haying said in a recent lecture that the Roman Catholic church was the only true church which the world has seen for fifteen hundred years, and that the world owes Its Christianity and civilization to it. The correspondent got thin- s slightly mixed. What I did say is that the Catholic church was the only, great Christian church the world had for fifteen centuries and that we could trace the development of our present civilization and Christianity through these centuries. Referring to the Pope, 1 simply quoted the words of Bismark who said that among all the world's greatest statesmen there are three master minds, yiz: Gladstone, Li Hung Chang and Pope Leo XIII." Church and Society. 1 It is important that all members of the G. A. R. be present at the regular meeting of W. S. Hancock Post on Tuesday May 2 as the arrangements for Decoration day must be completed. There is also other business of importance. The Other Aid Society -held their regular literary meeting at the home of Mrs. C. H. Chase Wednesday afternoon. After the program the society was entertained by some fine selections on the piano by Miss Leona Chase and Lena Dunwoodie. Then came some delicious ice cream and cake by the hostess.
