Mr. Sutherland was honored by being elected one of the two delegates from this, the eleventh district, to the democrat national convention at Chicago. . « There is a beautiful and sentimental side to this Arbor Day custom. The parent who plants a tree to commemorate the birth of a child has awakened within hils heart, by that simple act, a tender, sentimental interest in the growth and budding beauty of his arboreal child, intimately connected with the household pet whose birth it commemorates, while the child, early taught to plant with its tiny hands the twig under- whose umbrageuous shelter he may, perhaps,rest in maturity, thereby imbibes a love for nature, and a joy in beholding her wonders, which may never be eradicated. It is the prevalence of this beautiful and touching custom ia some of the countries of. Europe which has maintained and eyen added to the .forests, now so carefully guarded by imperial statutes. Let our people generally observe Arbor day this year by setting at least a few trees, shrubs and ornamental vines about their homes, upon the highways, or in our new park.

James is one-of the graduates from the pharmaceutical department. His many friends b ere will congratulate him on his success. It is true that itimes are hard, but the family newspaper is the cheapest luxury in these days that any home enjoys. The coming year will be one of intense interest. Everyone should be well informed as to passing events. Economize on something else and keep the newspaper. No one can afford to miss even one week' of the educating current news. Tbe Standard Oil Company will soon put ia a reservoir at this place, and oil will be shipped here in carload lots, to be delivered from this point to the merchants in this and neighboring towns. The company will put heavy teams on tbe road to do the delivering. Tbe oil company is doing this in order to make a saving on the freight rates. Tbe law requires Boards of Supervisors every fifth year to meet and organize the second Monday in June for the purpose of making ready for the state board of equalization.

Minchin of the Evart Review, was in Clare, Tuesday, and made the Sentinel a pleasant call.

In a lecture delivered atWashington, D.C„ last week that noted Presbyterian divine, the Rev. T. DeWitt Tai-* mage, referring to journalism, said: "To publish a newspaper requires the skill, the precision, the boldness, the vigilance, the strategy of a commander-in-chief. To edit a newspaper requires that one be- a statesman, an essayist, a geographer, a statistician, and, in acquisition, encyclopedic. To govern a newspaper until it shall be,a fixed institution is to demand more qualities than any business on earth." All the latest in photos at Vander- cook's.

Alton -Burnham, a graduate of the Clare high school class of '90, in a letter to the writer informs us that he will leave about June 1st for a fouiteen months' absence in Europe. He will spend about eight months studying mathematics in Germany and the rest of the time traveling through Italy, Switzerland, France, England and Scotland. He has a leave of absence for all next year and retains his position as- instructor in the University of Illinois during his absence and is insured a position on his return. Inasmuch as this is the first time "the university has" ever granted leave of absence to an instructor, Alton naturally feels quite complimented. He expects to be in Clare a day or two to see his old friends before leaving for Europe. -jJri^-,^&^%%*&rf*M>*- -^-«~<>^ <>-«-«-« «S«©-«*><»-^-«'»-«-<»-»->»-«-«-«»0««H»4»-«>-S^ In white CMna silts and neat effects in Bresder ^ilks, plain and fancy trimmed, from $1.50 to $2.50, axis In satin and gauze.

Dawson as sureties, were approved, also those of Wm,' Duncan as principal and Elmer Halstead and James Duncan as sureties. A petition was read, signed by 75 citizens, asking that the present bicycle ordinance be .repealed or a- mended, so that bicyclists be granted fche use of the walks of the city, excepting on McEwan street between the railroad and 6th streets. The council ordered the city attorney to draw up an ordinance giving to cyclists the use of all walks of the city (except on Pine street from 5th to State and on State from Pine * to McEwan), between the hours of 8 to 9,12 to 1, and 4 to 4:30—the time that children are on the streets to and from school. At no time are bicyclists to use the walks on McEwan between the railroad and 6th streets. Also, that bicy-* clists are not to ride on walks faster than 6 to 8 miles an hour. Cyclists appreciate the action of the council very much. The council appointed a committee to make report of cost and offer suggestions as to best methods of bridging the creek at south end of McEwan street, The .bridge there is in bad shape and a new one will have to be built sometime this year. Ruth Ashmore contributes a helpful and practical paper on "Is' Charity Worth While ?" to May Ladies' Home Journal, thus summarizing her discourse : "But, after all, what we want to do, yon and I, is to all our lives with chari ty so that to whomsoever there may come need we can give help. The help may express itself in material things; it may be in the sympathy of kindly words, or it may be spoken only by the .pressure of the hand. ' There is no charity in having your name on the list of generous givers while some one near to you stays within doors because her coat is shabby, or because her clothing is not sufficiently j) warm. There is no charity in the giving of much money if you have been harsh and cruel to some one who deserved your consideration, and have made that one heart feel that there is nothing in the world but bitterness. There is no charity in your being willing to write cheques that represent much money when you are quick to speak the unkind word, or to show to those who are around you a heart eaten up by pride, and lips thab utter no words save those of scorn. All the gold in the world, will count as nothing unless your charity is like that which was taught to the world nearly two thousand years ago. Id meant that to feed the hungry, take care of the sick, to forgive the sinner, and to help,-always in the best way was Christ's charity. That is the charity, my friend, that you and I want to try to imitate. Begin by being charitable with your lips, by being charitable in your thoughts and acts. And if, of your little store there can only be offered a few pence, you may be certain that they will be reckoned bv God Himself as greater than the many millions given by those who are so unwise as to think that* charity means only f-he giving of the least of ail things—mbney." J. F. Tatman bought over 500 doz, eggs all from farmers, last Saturday.
