Dreyfus, whom the world today looks upon as a wronged but innocent man, Is at last free, having but yesterday been granted a pardon. It is expressed by French newspapers that even yet some of the generals who caused this man's sufferings will wear shackles, and if he is innocent, well ought they to do so. Several of the state papers have mentioned the name of Perry l?> Powers of the Cadillac News and Express for Auditor General* Mr. Powers is one of the newspaper men of the state, has for years been a member of the state board of education, and is in every way fitted to properly preform the duties of this respousible office, E, A.

Althouse has placed the overseeing of constructing the kilns with J.S. Ross. Gen. R. A. Alger has withdrawn from the contest for the senatorsbip to succeed James McMillan. The reason assigned by Gen. Alger for his retirement is his desire for party harmony. He also has business relations which have been taken into consideration In bis dicision.

Hawkins did the work and is this week placing one in'front of the residence of Wm. Ross ".on Fifth street. When contemplating sidewalk construction, remember that this style of walk costs but $6,00 per rod and will- last till Gabriel blows his trumpet. Dirt cheap, even tho it does seem expensive. We have sent out several statements to delinquent subscribers recently and shall send out more. jNow these are not duns, but are simply reminders. You intend to pay up but have been a little negligent, perhaps. A man came in t'other day, paid us 89.25, hard cash, baek subscribtion, and stopped nis paper, perhaps thinking that because of this the Sentine_ would not be issued longer, Wby, bless you, that $9.25 would place twenty-five first-class subscribers on our list, A pleasant gathering of friends at the home of Samuel Young Tuesday evening will be held in happy remembrance by Joseph Young, recruiting officer from tbe West of the 3d U. S. Inf. Co. F. "Jo" had not seen Olare county for eleyen years, and enjoyed two weeks of bis thirty day's furlough here, where he had lived since he was a small boy. Wednesday morning he again left for Fort Snelling, leaving many friends who wish him a Safe return when TJncle Sam needs his services no more, Tho not situated so as to attend the various numbers on the lecture course last witer, we feel that the lectures and entertainments were of a high character and well appreciated by our citizens. It is now time to arrange a course for the coming winter. Lecture courses are potent factors in nineteenth century civilization. We are a part of all we meet, and thus by these efforts large numbers are brought in contact with people whom to meet is to make us better men and women, and such many would not be able to meet were they not brought to our city. We suggest that a meeting of the business men of the city be called soon to arrange for a lecture course and that a committee be appointed to arrange for the course. gmrntTmrnymnfflmmy* 2>, avy dd wmmmm & E £ ompany* We are opening this season with the most extensive stocks ever snown in this vicinity* Every part of the store upstairs 5? and down is crowded to overflowing with new goods.

Summers Surrenders Himself, as a Safe- Kobfcer, On Saturday, September 16, Charles O. Summers, a former detective, an escaped convict from the Mississippi penitentiary, a gold hunter in the Klondike, and a man with a conscience, gave himself up to the officers and is again in the Mississippi state prison. In 1892 Summers was a detective, and in that capacity was employed by the Southern Express Go. to capture Eugene Bunch, who had robbed a southern express train car at Hammond La„ in the spring of 1892, Bunch was killed and his companions captured. While in pursuit of the train robbers Summers was in and about Meridian, Miss., a great deal and familiarized himself with the details of tbe office of the Southern Express Co. at that point. Soon after he returned to Chicago and divulged to Tom Murray, another detective, a plan he had conceived, to rob the safe of the express company at Meridian, Both Summers and Murray resigned their positions and left Chicago for Merid ian, Sum mers had in the mean- time made a false key to tbe office door and to the safe. During the temporary absence of the night clerk and his force, in attendance upon a traih a hundred feet from the office* Summers entered the office and safe by means of his false keys and ab* stracted $5,000. The loot was banded to Murray who left on a train for New Orleans, while Summers retired to his hotel. Wben the loss was discovered, Summers, known to be in the city, was summoned to aid in tracingthe thief. In a short time the express officials and other detectives arrived on the scene and began an investigation. In less than forty-eight hours Summers bad been arrested and confessed that he and Murray had committed the theft. Murray was arrested just as he was leaving an Illinois Central train at Chicago on the third day after the robbery, and $4100 of tbe money was recovered from his person. Both Summers and Murray pleaded guilty and were sentenced to five years each in the Mississippi state prison. Summers had not been in prison more than ninety days when he effected his escape. This was in April, 1893. In the, spring of 1804 Summers was arrested in San Francisco and was held to wait ohe arrival of officers from Mississippi, who'again imprisoned him, A few months thereafter Summers escaped again, this time bribing the guard, whom he took with him. His second escape was effected in August, 1894, After travelling around different places he Anally went to theXlon- dike, but learning that detectives were oa his trail, he disposed of his interests In Dawson City and returned to the United States, He arrived in He*w York city September 10, direct from Dawson Oity via San Francisco. Arriving in Memphis, Tennessee, SummeM went to Supt. G. W. McGee of the Southern Express Co., ternioff over to him $1500 in cash to cover the amount of his indebtedness to the company, even including the cota- pany's expense in pursuing. From here he went, unaccompanied by officers, to Jackson, where he offered to pay the state all the expenses his escape had incurred, and offers to serve the remainder of his sentence, tbo there is a strong and growing sentimeafc- for the pardon of the returned convict. For several years Mr, Summer made Clare his home, at times being: employed by J. W, Calkins and others;. He was of a roving nature, has traveled extensiyely," and now that he is a wealthy man, and has taken the step he has, will doubtless prove himself a worthy citizen from thl3 time ■ on. _____ Acknowledged Receipt..
