Have- you ever reali?-ed the truth of this, statement? Why not organize a gun club? Some great sport could be occasionally enjoyed through a day's shooting, and the rivalry between opposing sides for the highest count in the- shooting tournaments would add much to the sport. As a special feature the loosing side might ffirnish a repast after a day's shooting and as all are gathered 'round the festive board each could regale, the party with tales of the chase and of marksmanship. We would suggest that 0. S, Derby, who is quite an enthusiast in such matters, start the ball rolling. The _world-renownecl carnival of Mardi Gras is one that is held every year during ohe last week preceeding Lent, nt New' Orleans. Saginaw is also to institute an annual festival of fun, to be called "Yvanigas day, and in order that the people, of Saginaw might receive proper suggestions, The Saginaw Globe decided to send two representatives to New Orleans, paying their transportation and giving $20 in gold to each representative, for incidential expenses. The Globe published voting coupons, each day and subscribers were to select as the representatives the most popular, teacher of the East side and the most popular one of the West side, the contest closing last Saturday night. The successful teacher of the west side was Miss Sara Malcolm, a former teacher in the Clare public schools, who received about 0,000 more votes than her next highest opponent. Purely Personal.

It is estimated that Over 100 of the crew were killed, but it Is impossible as yet to give exact details, _ The cruiser is totally,destroyed. The explosion,shook the whole city. The windows were broken in all the houses. The wildest- consternation -prevailed in Havana. Thc wharves being soon crowded with thousands of people. As yet the case of the explosion is not apparent. The wounded sailors of the Maine are unable to explain It. They say the explosion 'took place While they were asleep, so that they e_.n give no particulars as to the cause. Capt, Sigsbee says the explosion occurred in the bow of the vessel. He received a wound in the head. Orders were given to the other officers to save themselves as best they could, but no one saved anything c.N-cept the clothes they had oh, • All the boats of the Spanish cruiser Alfonso XII, went to thc assistance of the Maine's crew. Admiral Manterola Ordered that boats of all kinds should go to thc assistance. The Havana flre- •nen. gave aid, tending carefully to the \vounded as they were brought ashoi-c. Gen. Solano and the other generals Were ordered by C'apt.-Gen. Blanco to take ships to help thc Maine in every way possible. Washington: Thc navy department received telegrams from Capt. Sigsbee giving news of thc disaster without any particulars, and asking that navy tenders be sent at once from Key West to receive the crew and the few pieces pf equipment still above water. Capt. Sigsbee said: "Public opinion should be ■Sj-^gended until further report. All 'officers believed to be saved. Jenkins and Merritt not yet accounted for. Many Spanish officers, .including representatives of Gen. Blanco, now with me and express sympathy" The secretary of thc navy received another dispatch from Key West at the same time, but its contents were not-] made public. The orders for the lighthouse tenders were at once sent to Key West. The Maine was a battleship of the second class and was regarded as one of the best ships in the new navy. She was built at the Brooklyn navy yard in 1890 at a cost of §2,588,000. She had a steel hull, was 318 feet long, 57 feet broad, 21.G mean draught and carried a complement of 87-1 men. Her armament consisted of four 10-ineh and six 0-inch breech loading guns in her main battery and seven 0-pounder and eight 1-pounder rapid-fire guns and four Gat- lings in her secondary battery and four Whitehead torpedoes. The commander of the Maine, Capt. Sigsbee, is a favorite in the navy department. Flouring .Mill Needed! The City of Clare is most favorably situated and is to-day a good trade center, our merchants drawing trade from Gladwin and Isabella counties. Factories to work up our timber are located here, and are, apparently, progressing. Tbe farmers in tne adjacent counties market their products here and as a general thing receive good prices for the s.ame. The merchants •ire as thorough business men as will be found anywhere, ever alive to their own and our city's interest. "Almost every line of business is represented, yet the one of equal interest to farmer •and merchant is not represented. We allude to that of grist mill. A flrst- class grist mill located at this point would have a tend.n.y to draw business from a greater distance than now. It would enable tbe farmer to do bis trading and have his grist ground on Miesameday,wherein as ibis now.those who do their trading in Clare must necessarily spend another day in going to mill, and, it would naturally follow that tbey would make such purchases of goods at that time and at that place. As a good general studies the topography and geography of tbe country before going into an engagement, so tao, must the business generals do likewise, The'business interests of Clare demand a first-class flouring mill and We propose, by theuse of our printers' ink, to let the outside-world know it. A good miller will Una here the best kind of a bonus-—which la—a town sadly in need of a good flouring mill.
