Clabe. Mich., Aug., 23',—A stiange case of attempted arson is reported from the home of Matthew Keebler, a prosperous German farmer, living eight miles north of this city. Last Saturday while Keebler and his wife were in this city their 13-year-old son, who remained at home, discovered the rear portion of the house in flames and with 'difficulty extinguished them. Upon examination it was 'found that kerosene had been applied to the building. A vigorous watch was kept up until Monday morning, and, no further attempts to burn tbe buildings being made, Keebler aud his wife drove some miles to the house of an acquaintance, tbe boy being armed witb ashotgunand warned to keep up a constant patrol of the premises. Duriugtbedav the boy discovered an unknown man in tbe act of setting lire to the barn, and at once fired at bim. The man with torch returned the flre with a revolver, but missed, and at once ran Into an adjacent cornfield. Numerous blood spots were found near wnere he bad stood, Indicating that the charge of shot fired at him-bad taken effect. Neighbors and officers were summoned and a thOro search is being i_adebut.no trace has as yet heen found. Keebler is wholly at a loss to account for the strange act, as he has no enemies whom he can conceive would" be guilty of sueh an outrage.—Saginaw Courier-Herald. Cohn-Baumgarth. Tuesday at 5:30 p. ra. at 252 Brush street, Detroit, occurred the wedding of one of Detroit's fairest maidens uud one of Clare's worthy and progressive young business men, Mr. Henry Baumgarth. The ceremony was performed at the home of .tbe bride's parents, Mr. and,Mrs. David Cohn, in the presence of many of the relatives and nearest friends. The presents were many and costly. Mr. Baumgarth ha? been in business in Olare for about four years and by thoro business principals and close application has succeeded in building up a good business. The bride is the d uighter of a. retired merchant i i Detroit, is refined, accomplished aud a good conversationalist and she will be gladly received into the society circles of our little city. Mr. and Mrs. Baumgarth are now enjoving a lake trip, taking in the sights of Mackinac and tbe Seo They will take Up their abode on east State street on returning to Clare.

The smoke nuisance is bothering the people at many manufacturing towns. They were not so annoyed during the time when we had the delectable Wilson tariff on the statue books. Bryan's Comedians- For three days this company have been in Clare rehearsing, organizing and getting ready to open the season, and his.t even ing played to a good sized, audience the melo-drama entitled,. The Black Flag. There are twenty members in the company, and carrying an excellent band and orchestra, present a flne appearance on the streets and render high class music between acts. Prof Bryan is a stage man of several vears' experience, and tbe selection of members of his company shows that he well knows excellent talent, and, we may add, his employes well know.-' they get their salaries. All who attended last evening were-- well pleased with the entertainment and we predict a crowded house this evening. Saturday evening the company nlay East Lynne, and as this play has not been rendered here for six years, and it being an excellent play, doubtless there will be a large „ attendance. There is probabl y no stronger com-- panv on the Stage,, and when they have played a few Weeks will'acquit themselves even more credibly thao they have here. If you intend to kill a man with a- club it doesn't matter how many knobs there are on it; but if you wish tai-- soothe a man to sleep, play very sweet low music. • Owing to the serious illness of "EdT- •tor Trumble the Farwell News did* not make an appearance last week*.
