Leach, Republican Candidate for Sheriff, was born in Eaton county, this state, in 38-12. When a small boy his parents moved to Calhoun county and later on to Kalamazoo county, in which counties he lived twelve years. His parents afterwards returned to Eaton county and eighteen years ago "Lym" came to Clare county, Grant township, where he has resided continuously since. When a lad o'f twenty years he answered his country's call to arms and in August 18G2, enlisted in the 22d Wisconsin infantry. lie was taken prisoner by the rebels at Thompson station, Tenn., on March 4,1803, and ^ confined in Libby prison. Several 1 weeks afterward lie was paroled with the rest of his regiment, and was honorably discharged while in Murfees- borough hospital in Tennessee, November 23,1863. ' During his 18 years' residence in Clare county. Mr. Leach has been in the mill business at Dover, where he ' has a large circle of admiring friends, and of which township he was twice clef-ted to tlie office of clerk, pcrform- y- lmj his duties Lo the satisfaction of all. Two years ago he was chosen by the republican party,.as its nominee for tlie Office of sheriff, believing that lie would discharge the duties of that office in a manner of which its importance demanded. He was elected and V has proven himself to be a man of en- " ergy, intelligence and sound judgement. He is again before the people for re-election to the same office. During the two years Mr. Leach has been sheriff he has discharged the duties of his office in the highest commendable manner. His administration has been the least expensive for many years. He has proven a terror to the criminal element for not one has escaped his just punishment. Mr. Leach's personality is attractive, He has none of the taciturnity and embarrassing reserve of some. He is of a genial nature, and while, possessed of humor, is capable of deep and serious thought. Generous and sympathetic to afaulthisintimate friends and even his acquaintances will rally to his support and re-elect liini to the office the duties of which he has so ably and conscientiously discharged. X asfir.'. The Passion Play. The Passion Play as given by peasants in the little village of Oberam- mergau, is one of the most signal events in the religious history of the Christian church. It consists of a series of most refined object lessons of applied Christianity, The peasants live for the puipose of portraying to the world every ten years the Passion of Jesus. At the last portrayal, 1890,Mr. Lewis was present and made a special study of the peasants and their great ■Festival. The results of that study he embodied in a* lecture-story that has had a larger hearing, probably, than any other single lecture that has ever heen before the public, and each succeeding year only adds to its popularity. This wonderful play will be rendered in Clare next Tuesday eyening, Kov. 1. Primary School Money. The superintendent of public instruction has completed his semi-annual apportionment of the primary school money which will he made next month and amounts to one dollar per capita. The May apportionment was fifty cents which makes 31.50 for every pupil of school age in the state for the year 1898. Grinding Day and Wight, Last week tho new grist mill ran all night two nights and the other four nights until 12 o'clock and Saturday night found 200 bushels yet to grind. This waa all custom work. It keeps. the entire force a hustling to attend tho work. A new feed run was started 'JnesQny. Frank M. Morrissey, Republican Candidate for ClprlcS. .Register The subject of this sketch was born at Bath, Clinton county, Michigan, Oct. 30,1S69, mating him 29 years of age last Sunday. At an early age he commenced work on a farm and his evenings were devoted to study, his aim being to attain a position in life such as would reward him for his labors.. He came to Clare county in 1881, remaining here until 1882, when he went to Big Rapids and from there to Ionia county, where ho worked out farming, devoting his spare moments to improving his mind, which he continued until 1888, when he returned to Clare county and passed an examination for a third grade certificate and commenced teaching, his first school being in the township of Wintertleld. lie afterwards taught in Greenwood aud Frost townships. During this period of teaching, moments that could be spared from his school duties were diligently occupied in reading law, and so closely, and thoroughly did he apply and digest that which was before him, that on April 7, 1893, he was admitted to the bar. His examination for admission was a very rigid one, but his indomiatable plucic and perseverance was its own reward, as he passed a most creditable one, upon which Judge Hurt, the then judge of this circuit, was unstinting in his compliments. From 1893 to 189G he practiced law at Harrison, being elected justice of the peace, the duties of which office were discharged with the same deftness that has characterized all of his work, In 1S96 the ropubliaans of Clare county selected him as its nominee for clerk and register. He made the run and was elected. Mr. Morrissey is again the republican nominee for county clerk and William II. Browne, Republican Candidate for Treasurer. j.' , . *- i-*\,«" :t.,. "•"*_ «*.*• register of deeds ifhd h:irdlv needs an introduction in these columns, for ne is well known to a large number of voters of Clare county and is just such a man that suits everyone. Those haying business with him always find him genial, courteous and accommodating, pleasing in manner and address, he readily wins for himself a large cotene of friends from all stations in life. He has held the position of clerk and register for two years, and we say that no other person has ever given the satisfaction and has kept the records in as neat and tasty a manner as Frank. In the recording of the proceedings of the board of supervisors not a single correction has ever had to be made at the end of each day's proceedings when the minutes were read for approval, so accurate and painstaking has he been in his work. Then, too, Frank is possessed n£ that natural adaptability, which combined with a steadfastness of purpose of doing everything well, makes his record bright and clear. We believe that never before in the history of the county has a clerk received a vote of thanks for the manner in which the books have been kept, but Mr. Morrissey received such a vote at the closing of the-last session of the board. Not only have the board of supervisors recognized his great worth, but uieiijuei'S uf the bar and his honor— the present incumbent of the judicial chair, has made manifest his appreciation of tbe accuracy and willingness and gentlemanly bearing of the clerk of the court. He has been tried in the balance and has not been found wanting. He is a republican first, last and all the time, up one side, down the other, criss-cross and any way you might take him, a gentleman aud a scholar. We ask you: "Will you send him hack," and we hear in accents loud and cleat from Wintertleld to Surry, "You bet! and in a hurry"' William n. Browne, the republican nominee for county treasurer, was born in Niagara Co.. N. Y., February 2, 1850. Mr. Browne was but a babe when his father went to California to seek his fortune in the gold mines, and died while there. When eight years of acre his mother died, A lady who had been a nurse in the family took young Browne to Canada, where he became a member of a family, out wag ill-treated, and at the end of six months ran away. For a short time he was cared for by an Irish woman at St. Catharines, after which he lived for a year with Alexander Muir, a shin-owner, of Port Dalhnusie, Canada, then returning to the kind-hearted Irish woman's home. One day he wandered on board a vessel owned by Capt. D. N. Millotte, of Leamington, Outario, with whom he remained until the fall of 1864, when the captain was lost on Lake Michigan. In the spring of 1865 W. II. Browne went to Ohio, where he worked two years, then returned to Canada. In 1867 he came to Michigan and stopped at Pontine, where he obtained employment as a farm hand. He was now seventeen years of age, and began to realize the importance of a good education. While working as a farm hand he attended school and made such good progress in his studies that he soon obtained a certificate entitling him to teach, and this vocation he.followed for the next five winters in Oakland county. In the summer he either attended school or worked for farmers. In the fall of 1877 Mr. Browne was appointed deputy clerk of Oakland county. A year later he entered the law department of the University of Michigan, graduating with the class of '79. He then went to Petoskey, but on -account of ill-health made a trip to the scenes of his childhood joys and ii.,!n)W8inCanad.t, returning to Oakland county where he worked on the county poor farm until December of '79, when he obtained a school and. taught for a term. Mr. Browne's residence within the limits of Clare county dates from April, 1880, at which time he located in Farwell. He had but $24 as capital, and rather than take the chances in the practice of law, the returns from which must necessarily be very slow, he accepted the position of principal of the public schools to flnisn the unexpired term of his predecessor. His work was so satisfactory that he was re-elected for the winter of 1880-81. At the close of the school year Mr. Browne went to Harrison, where he has since resided, building up a remun. erative practice and a good reputation as a lawyer. In 1892 he was elected county treasurer, and in 1894 was reelected, receiving a plurality of 600 votes over his opponent, or a majority of over 400 over all. This phenomenal vote was the endorsement of the people of this county of one of the very best treasurers the county ever had. Mr. Browne was not a seeker for the treasurership in the convention which nominated him this year. He did not ask for it, did not put forth any claim, but the people remembered him and the able manner in which he had formerly conducted his office. He was nominated in a regular republican convention without any effort on his part. That the people will return this old reliable treasurer goes without saying. In his social relations Mr. Browne is a Royal Arch Mason, a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Uniformed Rank of the Knights of Pythias, the Ancient Order of United Workmen and the Knights of the Maccabees. ____ At Home* Mr. and Mrs. S. O. Robinson will be at home to thepeuple of Clare, Friday, Oct. 28, from 2:30 to 10:30 p. m, Laid to Rest. John William' Sexsmith, who departed this life Friday morning, Oct. 21, 1898, at the age of 51 years, 5 mos. and 10 days, was born in Kent Co., Ontario. He was the fourth child of a family of eight girls and two boys. His childhood and youth were passed in Canada. In September, 1870, he was united in marriage to Maria Peters. Soon after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Sexsmith came to Ionia county, this state, where they lived four years, when they returned to the old home in Kent county, where they remained seven years, coming to Clare in 1881, where they have resided continuously since. Four children were born to them, Jennie E., GeorgeT., Edward and Herbert, all oj' whom sur- yive to mourn their father's death. Mr, Sexsmith has been angaged in the milling business almost continuously since coming* to Clare, having followed the business, in fact, since he was a boy of 18. He was a member of the society of Modern Woodmen of this city, which order attended the funeral services in a body. The ser- yices were held at his late residence on Monday at 2:30 p. m., Rev. E. A. Boyl preaching the funeral sermon. Deceased had been for years a member of the Baptist church of Diesden, Ont. Mr. Sexsmith had been suffering from a complication of diseases for the past two years, but his iinal seyere illness was of about a month's duration, during which time he was confined to his home almost continuously. He leaves a loving wife and four children, and aged mother, and four sisters, to whom the heartfelt sympathy of the community goes out in their sad affliction. Mr. Sexsmith had many warm and sincere friends. As a mark of respect to his memory the business places of the city were closed iu the afternoon of the day of the funeral and a large concourse of sorrowing friends followed the remains to their riual resting place. News of Our Soldier Boys. Under date of October 21, Clifford Clark writes from Camp Meade, Pa., to his parents in this city. Among other things he speaks of their recent field day sports and says that Eddie Fine won the standing high jump and seemed a fine medal, besides the regular prize. He also won second prize in several other contests. Clifford thinks the regiment may be mustered out in three months. Every morning he is awakened with the cry from same home-sick boy, "I wan't to go home." He says the regiment has suffered 30 or 35 deaths, with prospects of more, despite the good care all are receiving. Albert Wilson and George Bowen are both sick, but the latter is able to b'e around. Wilson does not improve very fast. Aaron Rosenthal is getting better and will soon be home on a30-day furlough. Geo. W, Richai-dson, Republican Candidate for Surveyor. George W. Richardson is a candidate for re-election as county surveyor. He is an able and popular young man, who has done good service in the term which is now nearly ended. He has earned a re-election by faithful service and good citizenship. He has given the duties of surveyor prompt and careful attention and i f re-elected will continue to do so. ^ These Were buccessful. Teachers' examinations in third grade were held in this city last week Thursday and Friday and the following were successful: Maude Whiteside, Evelyn McClelland, EUa Yree- nan, Maude Rutherford, Clara James, Kittie Chase, Mabel Weir, O.
