Wescbe's orchestra of Sb, Louis were present and the program was interspersed with excellent music. Vacation rightly used adds length of days and long life.- Don't rest too hard. Don't study too much. A change of scene, a change from tbe ordinary mode of life, sets tbe currents ebbing and flowing in new channels. Swing in a hammock, basque in the sunshine, sniff cedar and balsam, take plentiful doses of swimming, fishing, boating, romping; read "Seats of the Migbty,i' "David Harura," "Peter Stirling." Study some, think some, meditate, eat aud sleep. Some people think this is wasting time. When will we learn that energy is as great a factor in life as bime? The same person can accomplish twice as much when in good trim. Why nob spread life over more years? We'll do jusb as much good and bave lots more fun. Eemember, -we pass this way but once, and will be a long time dead.—Michigan School Moderator. A Bad Wreck. About five o'clock Sunday afternoon as a 40-car freight train was coming south thru a deep cut about two miles bhis side of Lake George on tbe Ann Arbor railroad, a wreck occurred which not only cost tbe company a considerable sum of money, but retarded traffic on their line for some thirty-six hours. The heavy rains last week caused a wash-out on the north ena of tbe cut and wbile this was repairea the grouna was so soft that the raid on one side lowered. This caused tbe eighth car of the train to jump the t'ack. It bumped along over the ties but kept on the road bed till the coupling gave way-. The momentum was so great thab six ears loaded with iron, lumber and barley were derailed and throw across the track rail fence-like and wrecked so badly that nothing but tbe running gear will be of use. The wreck occurring between two high banks, to lay a track around for regular brafflc was impossible, so until the debris couia be removed it was necessary to tarnsfer. As all the Ann Arbor coaches were in use the company secured two belonging to the Grand Trunk line which were brought up with the wrecker and to these coaches were transferred tbe Frankfort excursionists, many of whom hearing of the disaster bad prepared to walk bome. Trains are now running regularly ana on time. Watch the "Wan; them over now. Ads.'' far l>aV3*ihi9 tool* The Sentinel Appreciated. Fredericksburg, Iowa, July 10.

The great yankee play, "Old Uucle Jed" is by far tbe besb of any rural comedy. The reason for this is the many true to life situations which abound thruout the play, the many eccentricities so common to the yankee, and the clean and wholesome atmosphere surrounding the character and plot, and the many startling climaxes. In con- juncbion with all these tbe mana-te- merit bave secured tbe largest number of solo musicians ever carried by an amusement enterprise, and the result is a musical feast long to be remembered. Old Uncle Jed and the entire play is tbe laugh provoker of the present season and to miss ib is one pleasure of life lost forever. The company numbers 25 people and come bo the Opera ', House Saturday evening July 15. Good News As we go to press the following telegram is brought to our notice, which has reference to a lucrative position secured by one of our towns boys: LITTLE Bock, Ark., July 13,1899.

There is possibly no performance so well liked by tbe public at large as a rural comedy—at least statistics show tbis to be a fact. There is a certain air of homelike comfort surrounding the play and charaters tbat call to our minds tbe people of long ago where we either lived or visited on the farccu. In "Old Uncle Jed" the author has re- taineaall the quaint country surround- ing,ana enlivened the story with funny situations, music, dancing and hfgh- class specialties. This is a show for your wife, your sister or your" sweetheart. There is not-a .word thafc- could offend tbe most fastidious, Eemember the farmer band parade.
