Pleasant Tribune. The Sentinel advertisers appreciate tbe fact that the circulation of this paper is very large in all the surrounding country, and that it draws trade to them. That they have confidence in this is shown by its columns. Its large circulation ab all the surrounding country postofflces draws buyers for miles here to trade, and they find it pays them to come. The fact is the advertising columns of The Sentinel are very interesting and profl table reading. A musicale and ice cream social will "be given by the senior class of the Glare high school at the G.

The damage done tounpainted or old-painted buildings by the elements is the cause of much greater expense in the end than would be ah occasional coat of paint, Not only would the cost be less, bub well-painted buildings add to your own enjoyment, and they are also a source of beauty to all beholders, and help to make the town itself "a thing of beauty." Aboub one-fifth of the State militia are thrown out by the medical examiners. Inasmuch as the guards are made up of our young men, this is nob very flattering to the general physical condition of our youth. The greater portion of those that fail to pass muster are thrown out because of weakness of the heart brough t on by cigarefc smoking and excessive bicycle riding. Perhaps hoys will begin to believe after awhile, what has been told them about cigarets for, lo, these many years. _ Dr. Dodge at Dr. Burrier's offlce, Glare, May 24 and 25.

We; say "at tbo-bead1- because be certainly printed the best paper and no home in this section was complete without "The Glare Democrat-Press," We are glad to think now that we began our apprenbiceship.under so gooda printer and So able a writer, and hope that our efforts in making an ideal home paper will be as successful as were his. "Marve" will remain for a several weeks' visit with old friends. Oc Co, Improve This Opportunity. The work on the dam across the Little Tobacco river for the furnishing of power for our new grist mill, is being rapidly pushed forward. A logging, stumping and general clearing bee will be held next Friday and Saturday, May 27 and 2S, for the purpose of freeing the proposed site of the pond of all obstructions. Every man with a team and every man who is interested in the progress and well- fare of Clare, should give their time free gratis to helping along this work, as it benefits each and every one of us, and when completed ib not only furnishes water power for the mill, but will provide a good fishing ground for lovers of the piscatorial exercise, as one party alone has promised to plant therein 15,000 bwo-year-old brook trout. Then, too, it will be a fine boating place. The grove on the south side will be a superb place for picnics, and when once known to tbe outside world will become, in a measure, a place for resortcrs from other towns. Aside from this every farmer ought, and will no doubt, take pride in referring to his home mill. And, why not? The dam f. ben completed will have a fall of 14 feet, with a backwater of nearly a mile, giving to the natural force of water fall a force of head that is excelled by few water powers io the state. By tbe formation rf the pond, or, more properly speaking, a lake, an island of considerable extent will be formed upon which probably another season a pavillion will be erected for the use of those who desire fco spend a day or an evening in social enjoyment. In conclusion let us say, that it will more than fully repay you to devote a day or two to this work. On the days of the "bee" refreshments will be served and everything done to make the day one of nob only profit to eyery farmer, but every* citizen of Clare and northern Isabella counties. Hiram W.
