Every one who attended the Decoration day ceremonies and unveiling of the soldiers' monument at Clare last May must remember the impressive exercises at the opera house, especially the part when old "Uncle Billy" Anderson came forward, dressed as he was when he came out of Libbey prison, barefooted and in rags, carrying in his hands his last slender rations. It was a sight to bring tears to every eye. How "Uncle Billy" is dead. He died Tuesday, April 9,at his home in Sheridan township, just south of the Eagle school house, and was buried yesterday at Cherry Grove, eighteen of Hancock post being in line at the grave to pay the last sad honors to a brave soldier. Wm. Anderson was born in Wayne county, O., 71 years ago. He enlisted Dec, 1863, in Co. C. 2d Ind'. Cavalry, and served to the close of the war except for the nine months of terrible suffering at Salisbury and afterward at Libbey prisons. He came to Clare in 1871 or '72, among the early settlers. July 10,1889, he joined Hancock post, and has never failed to be on duty with the post when able to do so. He leaves a wife and five children. CHURCH ANB SOCIETY ITEMS. Firemen's Election.

Written for the Sentinel.— Yellow is more popular than ever. Turquois-blue is a greenish-blue shade. Later in the season large hats will be much worn. There are indications of a revival of the plaih linen collar. Little girls still wear the picturesque "Granny bonnet." Quite the sweetest thing in fancy work is embroidery done in pallettes. Perhaps green may be said to be the most fashionable color of the season. Skirts continue to flare at the bo ttom and sleeves to broaden noticeably at the tops. ' White and yellow pique will be very popular for children's coats during the summer. Coats for small children are made of light colored crepon and sometimes of sheer silk over colar. The trimmings in spring millinery show a complete return to the use of floweis with abundant foliage. The new Eton suits for little girls are made of white duck and ecru linen, as well as of white and blue serges. The dresses of a little girl of two years of age should be somewhat shorter than those of a boy of the same age. Frocks for small children should measure two yards around the bottom if made of woolen goods, and' may measure from two and half to three yards, if made of sheer material. Black satin ribbon with pallette embroidered ends is just now fashionable for sashes, and colored velvet or satin covered with the tiny glittering discs make very pretty and effective bonnets. The low Dutch neck promises to be very popular on frocks and guimpes for children's summer wear. It is made by omitting the usual band and adding a f.all of lace or embroidery in its place. Natural flowers are seldom worn or carried. Many kinds of artificial flowers more or less veiled by silk mull or lace are very popular, They are quite as artistic and much, more durable than real blossoms. The Dutch bonnet is a narrow affair, very long at the sides of the head. It is probably fashioned after the caps worn by the wives of the burgomasters. There are fanlike pieces over the ears that give it an odd and picturesque effect. This bonnet is worn far back from the face and though pretty and quaint will be becoming to very few. Old Stingy had a bright new cent. Likewise a bright gold dollar; He put the "Wrong one in the hat, And you should have heard him holler. Ex. The King's Daughters will meet with Mrs. O. B.Davis, Thursday afternoon next. The M. E.Sabbath school will have their Easter exercises at 10:30, Sunday morning. The Willing Workers will meet at the home of Mrs. Kump, Tuesday, April 10th. A cordial invitation is extended to all. At the meeting of the Rathbone Sisters, Clare Temple No. 13, the initiation of the candidate, Mrs. B. F. Kramer, was considered very attractive by her. Sabbath at the Baptist church- subject for morning, "The Joy Set Before Us." Evening theme, "A Living Redeemer." Both are Easter themes. All are welcome. The Aid Society of the M. E. church will serve a ten cent supper at W. R. C. hall on Tuesday April 16th from 5 until 7 a good attendence is desired. Every one invited. Rev. F. Stowell and wife and father, and Uzal Joslin and wife of Mt. Pleasant, Melvin Howard and wife and mother, of Dorr, attended the Free Methodist quarterly meeting from Friday till Sunday night, returning home Monday. The Ladies' Union will meet Friday, April 19, at the home of Mrs. Bicknell. At the meeting last week at Mrs. Coo- ley's the following officers were elected in the missionary department: Pres., Mrs. W. S. Cooley; Treas., Mrs. R. H. Jenney; Sec'y, Mrs- Long. The Free Methodist quarterly meeting last Friday night, Saturday and Sunday was very interesting and beneficial to all who attended. Although the roads were very muddy and the rain kept many from the meeting, the attendance was very good. . Rev. W. Bodine of Elm Hall conducted the meeting, assisted by Rev. Stowell and Rev. DeLong. A real nice old lady, who lives not a thousand miles from here, dropped a penny in the contribution box one Sunday recently and the action was observed by her little grandson. On her way home she grumbled a great deal about the sermon, "Well, grandma," said the little fellow, who had been listening to her complaints, "I think it was good enough for a cent." At the regular review of LaTosca Hive, No. 170, held April 10, 1895, the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God to remove by death the mother of our esteemed sister, Lady Boyd, therefore, be it Reso:lyed, that we extend to our bereaved sister our heart-felt sympathy in this hour of her great sorrow. ResolyM), that a copy of these resolutions be sent to our bereaved sister, and also published in the Clare Sentinel. Committee—Hattie Allen, Virginia Friedeborn, Julia A. Norton. G. A. R. Encampment.

"I understand that Tennyson was paid a half dollar a word for his poetry, "said the soulful poet to the hard- headed editor. "Now, ,why don't you pay me that for my poetry^" "I can hardly afford to pay you half a dollar a word for your verses," said the hard-headed editor; "but I will pay youhalf a dollar a line for a short poem." Then the poet departed, and the next day returned with the following poem: tbue love's cottbse. ,i John Yearns, Jane Turns, Eyes Meet; Love- Sweet! Jane Stops: John Pops. Both Wed— 'Nough Said. n John Mad, Jane Sad, Both Fight; Sad Sight! Whole Week Won't , Speak. -Ee- - course Divorce. The hard-headed editor counted carefully the lines, and conscientiously counted out the poet $16, remarking to himself: "I belie ve that fellow has got brains. I thought he was only a poet."—New York World. SCHOOL NOTES. School report for the month ending March 29, in district No, 3, Wise: Number days taught, 18; number pur pils enrolled, 33.
