Also leave your orders with Van Brunt & Son for ice cream in quantities forsocials, parties, etc. A Washington dispatch to the Free i-ress of yesterday morning among other things pays the following compliment to our fellow townsman: " 'Den.' Alward, theMichigan reading clerk, has also been faithful to his post and officiated at the reading desk without any assistance during the debate on the sundry civil bill." Here's a timely wail from an exchange: "Tell me, ye winged win.s that round my pathway roar, do you not know some spot where wives clean house no more; some lone, sequestered leafy dale, some island ocean girt, where life is not one ceaseless war with j cobwebs and with dirt; where only ( nature's carpets spread beneath the tired feet, and whither man is ne'er compelled it's tiresome folds to beat ? The light breeze fondled my face and said, 'Beat on—there's no such place."' We heard _. business man suggest recently, that farmers could just as well as not manufacture their own sugar. We believe that the idea is practical. Sugar beets are easily grown and the yield is prolific. The process of manufacturing beet sugar is eyen more simple than tbat of making maple sugar. It is simply this: The beats are thoroughly washed ; they are then grated on a coarse grater or chopped into small pieces in a tank or vessel and covered with cold or luke warm water, in which they are left until the sugar sells are dissolved. The water is then drawn oil and boiled until it becomes a syrup; a little lime added at this point will whiten the sugar and destroy all acids and alkali; the syrup is then boiled until ib will "sugar," This completes the process so far as making the -sugar. If you want granulated sugar you must run the product through .a crusher. Come on, farmers, now is the time to bust the sugar trust.—Tuscola County Advertiser.

As it came nearer we could see that it very closely resembled the human form, only its motions were „o rapid the eye could not follow them. At times it would appear to leave tbe earth and sail through space at the rate, we should judge, of GO miles an hour. As it turned and came down the stretch the third time we determined to investigate. Placing ouiselves in the middle of the road we threw up both hands and yelled. After making several revolutions in the air it came to a full stop, directly In front of where we stood. Judge of our surprise wben we beheld "Tip" Calkins with his training suit on, fitting himself for his coming race with Seth Davis on Field Day, Wednesday, June 16. The bicycle path built by the Battle Cieek bicycle club between the Ad- ventist city and Augusta last year has done more to advertise Battle Creek than any other thing or institution. Hundreds of riders went through on this path between Chicago and the eastern states, and nearly all unon their return home wrote up an article about it. The distance is nine miles, two miles of which is an elegant gravel road. The remainder of the distance is a path built by tbe roadside, and cost $1,000. The club will immediately commence the construction of a path from Augusta to.Gull Lake, a distance of four miles, after which they will build a road to Marshall, a distance of 12 miles. They have planned this for their summer's work. Last year they also constructed a mile path to Cognac lake. There is no city in Michigan where the bicycle riders have done so much for the construction of bicycle paths as Battle Creek. The "Firemen WorK Heroically and Sue cecd in Saving thp Books and Accounts and A.ont $300 Worth of -Material. Shortly after 12 o'clock Saturday night, the planing mill owne*d by Messrs.Gorr & Arrand, situated in the south part of the city near tbe F, & P. M. track, was discovered to be on tire. Alarm was given and tbe lire department turned out with their usual promptness, also a large number of ci tizens. No ti me was.lost by th e firemen in getting in'their work on the burning building, but it was foundtm- possible to save tbe main building, the lire having too much of a start oil tbe infiamable material. About ?300 worth of material was saved and all the lumber in the yard, The building burned very rapidly and it was only at great risk tbat anything could besaved. The mill contained complete and modern machinery, much of it comparatively new, and the Arm'Was doing a large and first class business, and tbe loss is a heavy one to Messrs, Gorr & Arrand as the property was not insurred. It is.estimated that theloss is between four and five thousand dollars, but will depend upon whether some of the machinery can be repaired. The mill had stood a .quarter century. The origin of the fire is unknown. Work had been in progress until seven o'clock the evening before, and as the fire started in the engine room, it is probable that a spark from the furnace was, the cause. . . The safe, containing the books, etc.* was saved. Gorr & Arrand have not, yet decided whether to rebuild or not.. Both art. hard working young men and-- the Sb_^ikbl hopes soon to see them in good shape again.
