Year after year it is coming to supplant the Fourth of July in the affection of the loyal people of the na-l tion. As a citizen remarked to the Observer this week, "The Fourth of July has grown to he a day of red lemonade." If the day were given up merely for recreation and spdrt, a day of jollification in memory of the proclamation of Liberty, the sober-minded citizen might lay aside his dignity for a day and join in the celebration; but when he knows that nine-tenths of the money subscribed for the day is given by persons who look to the crowd assembled on that occasion to reimburse themselves and net them a neat sum, he looks hard to find the patriotic motive that the flaming posters proclaim. Hot so with Decoration Day. There is no feeling that sinks deeper or lasts longer than sorrow. Gratitude is closely allied to patriotism, and both harmonize better with a day of reflection and pathetic memories than with wide-mouthed and unthinking rioting. We owe it no less to the growing generation than to the faltering line of surviving heroes, that we make each recurring 30th of May a more memorable day than the last. * * Wo Co To IL DEPARTMENT* Office Under Clare County Savings Bank.

How that electric lights are assured, and the city has secured the old high school" and will soon fit it up for municipal purposes, the council and citizens should give full attention to the new park. The conncil of 1894 should have due credit for the initiatory in the matter of the park, but it remains for the council of 1895 to co.ver itself with glory or disgrace in consummating the work. Clare has never done anything by halves in the way of improvements -and conveniences, public or private. The water works, electric lights, city hall, schools, hotels, opera house, business blocks, etc., all show this. How let our park and our streets be second to none. As to the park, while the civic pride would prompt the laying out of something worthy of the city, there is no need of any large expense. In fact, the public will not and should not tolerate it. Fortunately it is not necessary. The first important thing is for the council, as the ordinance requires,-to appoint a well considered park commission. The right men can arouse enough enthusiasm that nearly the whole work and expense can be taken care of by private individuals and the several benevolent, fraternal and church societies of the city t One dollar and enthusiasm can accomplish more than one hundred dollars and a dead interest. Push the park! Can you repeat the constitutional oath that is .required to . be taken by every one in assuming any office whatever under the state of Michigan, from constable to governor' The Observer is willing to wager a Canada copper that you can't, without looking up the "statoots." It isn't"a very difficult nor long formula, and every citizen ought to know it. A good many of them think they do, but if tested by the book would be found wanting. When elected to any office, within a specified time after the vote is canvassed and declared, the person elected must make out and sign .the following form, and swear to the same (if he intends to accept the office), before a notary public, and file the same with the clerk of the city, village, township, or county, or secretary of state, as the case may be. Following is the oath: "I do solemnly swear that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of this state, and that I will discharge the duties of (here insert the name and place of the office) to the best of my ability, (signed)." To which the notary adds the following: ' 'Subscribed and sworn to before me, this (date and name of notary,) notary public in and for (blank) county." The oath taken by the president or any federal officer is the same as given above, except that the state is not referred to. Persons required to give bonds, like a sheriff or treasurer, fill out a blank form of the oath on the bond. Those of whom bonds are not required may write out the oath on any ordinary paper, swear to it before a notary, and file it with the proper clerk. Query: How many teachers in this county could repeat the constitutional cath of office? The above remarks were suggested by i:a- conversation overheard between a couple of citizens on the streets recently. [This department is under the control of the W. O. T. U. of Clare. All matter intended for it should he addressed to Rev. Mrs. Hinman, editor of the department. The local W. C. T. TJ. of Clare will meet in the reading room, Saturday, April 20th. There will be an entertainment under the auspices of the W. C. T. TJ. in the near future. We all enjoyed the paper read by our president last week. We are in hopes that in the near future we shall hear from the superintendent of narcotics, as we believe tobacco to be very hurtful to the young. Let us hear from Miss Wadsworth,our superintendent, soon. TOBACCO—A PARABLE. Tben shall the kingdom of satan be likened to a grain of tobacco seed which, though exceedingly small, being cast into the ground, grew, and became a great plant, and spread its leaves rank and broad, so that huge and vile worms formed a habitation thereon, and it came to pass, in the course of time, that the sons of men looked upon it and thought it beautiful to look upon and much to- be desired to make lads look big and manly. So they did put forth their hands and did chew thereof. And some it made sick, and others to vomit most filthily, and it further came to pass that tnose who chewed ifc became weak and unmanly and said, we are enslaved and can't cease from chewing it. And the mouths of all that were enslaved became foul, and they were seized, with a violent spitting; and they did spit, even in ladies' parlors, and in the nouse of the Lord of Hosts. And in the course of time it came also to pass that others snuffed it, and they were taken suddenly with fits, and they did sneeze with a great and mighty sneeze, insomuch that their eyes filled with tears and thev did look exceedingly silly. And yet others cunningly "wrought the leaves thereof into rolls and did set fire to one end thereof, and suck vehemently at the other end thereof, and did look very grave arid calf-like. And the smoke of their torment ascended up forever and ever. And the cultivation thereof became a great and mighty business on the earth, and the merchant men waxed rich by the commerce thereof. And it came to pass that the saints of the Most High defiled themselves therewith; even the poor who could not buy shoes, nor bread, nor books for their little ones, spent their money for it. And the Lord was greatly displeased therewith and said: "Wherefore this waste; why do those little ones lack bread and shoes and books? Turn now your fields into corn and wheat and put this evil thing far from you and be seperate, and defile not any more and I will bless you and cause my face to shine on you." But with one accord they all exclaimed, ''We cannot cease from chewing, snuffing and puffing—we are slaves." —Sel. IN A WELL. Archie Davis Was Browned in One at Kent's In the Township of Hatton, Last Albert Lynch, whose work is becoming so much more generally known to Americans, through his drawings in Scribner's Magazine and his cover designs for The Ladies' Home Journal, is a Peruvian by birth, but of English parentage. He is only thirty-three years of age, and of extremely retiring disposition. He is unmarried and lives in Paris. The young artist commands the highest prices for his work, his smallest water-color paintings readily selling for $.600 to $900 each. In 1893 he received the Salon'c first prize for his beautiful panel of "Spring," showing a single figure. This picture won the admiratiou of the French art critics and the public to such an unusual degree that the painting was sold for a fabulous sum to a private Paris buyer. Recently The Ladies' Home Journal acquired all publication rights to this painting, and -it will serve as one of the cover designs for that magizine. The next issue of the Journal will also have a design by Lynch, portraying his conception of a woman's ideal costume. A succession of other cover designs by Lynch will follow these two. Eight miles straight north of Clare on a section corner is a white school house. A half mile west of the school house, on the road that leads in to Hatton, is Kent's mill, where a tragedy occurred Monday afternoon, by which Archie, son of M. Davis, lost his life. Hear the mill is a house where Wm. Witherell, the engineer, lives. Along the road near Hatton lives M. Davis, a man not over blessed with worldly goods, but whose son, Archie, a lad of fifteen years, was coming to be of considerable assistance. Archie drove team for the men working in the woods back of the mill, and Monday he was just starting out after dinner from the mill, driving the horses which were not attached to a wagon, when he was met between the house and the mill" by Mr. Witherell, the engineer. They stopped to talk for a few minutes when the engineer went on to the house after something to use at the mill. That was the last Archie was seen alive. When the engineer came out of the house he saw the horses walking along toward the mill with the lines dragging. Thinking they might get away he tied them near the mill, supposing the boy had stepped into the mill, or somewhere out of sight near by. In one corner of the mill is a dug well, 25 or 30 feet deep, covered with boards. Some of them had become broken, and it was to .repair them that the engineer had gone to the house for tools. When he returned he proceeded with the work. In an hour or so the men came from the woods to find out why the team did not come along, and found it as tied up by the engineer. Thinking something must be wrong they began a search through the mill and near it, even examining the well. Then they hunted through the woods. The mill and the well were searched two or three times during the afternoon and enquiries made every where. Finaly, late in the evening, a more careful investigation of the well was made. Tbe engineer went down in the well and with a pole discovered that some object was at the bottom. Attaching a hook to the pole, the body of the boy was brought to the surface. He seemed to have been, in a sitting posture. Doubtless the unfortunate boy had gone to the well for a dri,n.k of water before going to the woods, had stepped upon the broken boards, or in some such way had fallen in. There was some talk of asking a coroner's jury to investigate, but the circumstances surrounding the event seemed so simple and easily explained that it was not done. The funeral was held Wednesday.
