A lawyer in the court room may call a man a liar, scoundrel, villian or thief, and no one makes complaint when court adjourns. If a newspaper prints such reflections on any man's character there is a libel suit or a dead editor. Can it be that everyone believes the newspaper and no one believes the lawyer?'' Lovers of music—real live music that charms the ear and delights the soul- will rejoice to learn that theX. of P. have secured the Schubert Symphony Club aud Quartette for one of their unique .and delightful entertainments in our city, Wednesday evening, July 17th.

Evart had a $200 fourth of July fire, caused by firecrackers at the home of Mrs. Hellen Ross. Postmaster Maynard has been making improvements to the interior of the post office this week.

Martell and daughter, Miss Lillie DeCoo, and Miss Dorna Benner, returned Monday from a few days'outing at Lake George. Mrs. Chas. Strobeck spent the 4th with Mrs. Moses Brown, Mt Pleasant.

McLennan and three children of Grand Rapids, Minn., have been visiting for a week or more with her brother, Wm. YanSicklen of Yernon township, and with friends An town. Mr. McLennan and family were residents of Clare about a dozen years ago, when he was agent for the F.& P. M. company. Mr. McLennan is now agent for the Duluth and Win~ nipeg Railway at Grand Rapids, Minn. Calkinsville did herself proud in the matter of her Fourth of July celebration this year. The people over there know right well how to do the right thing when they lay themselves out for it, and they did that last Thursday. There was a big crowd, pleasing excercises and sports, a general good time, nobody disorderly, and the leading spirits who had the matter in charge felt when the day was done that it had indeed been a "Glorious Fourth," repaying them in full for all their hard work. The special meeting of the city council Friday evening, to consider what should be done regarding a better water supply developed the fact that the present well can be made much more serviceable by removing the- accumulated sand and cutting down the present pipes and putting in more. This work is now underway, and there need be no f uther apprehen- tion in regard to the supply of water in case of fire, but everyone should observe the oft-repeated request to shut off all hydrants immediately on the sounding of a fire alarm. An exchange says: When the breezy blooming bloomers are universally the go, how will tailors press creases in them, I should like to know? When the baby's head is nodding and wants to take a nap, how can mamma lull her darling in a bifurcated lap? How can Bridget shoo-the chickens with no skirt to flop and fling, when the creatures go a-grubbing in the garden in the spring? But the question most annoying that our speculations catch: Can she vie with men in action when she goes to strike a match^ An old chap by the name of Geo. W. Chase, hailing from St. Joseph county, reached Clare about the 4th. He claimed not only to be president of the TJ. S. by inheritance and governor of Michigan but also claimed to have a clear title to seven and a half townships in Clare county. He evidently was non compos mentis, but some un- regenerate son of Adam directed him on the road to Harrison where he showed up about Friday in the register's office looking up his titles. Sheriff Brown kindly took him in, ascertained from correspondence^ that he was a harmless insane person who was in the habit of working for his keeping down in St. Joseph county where he is a well known character, and Monday started him by rail back toward his old haunts. ?\ p i ( u 11 u ii I1 75c Dress G-oods reduced' to 621c. 621c " 45. & 50c. 25c. 19c.

The Ithaca base ball association has begun holding a series of monthly field days. The first was held Wednesday of this week. Base ball, foot races, bicycle and horse races fill the program. Tne Elmwood Gazette expresses our sentiments exactly: "The columns of this paper are open to our readers, one and all alike, and if you see anything you dislike, don't go around snooting off your mouth about it. We will not refuse to publish anything you may say, even if you should call the editor cross-eyed, bald-headed or knock-kneed, provided you sign your name to it. 1 We know we are a freak of nature, Since the rain is made to fall on the I but our wife thinks we are. good look- just and unjust alike, citizens of Clare} ing, and that is sufficient." and Harrison are beginning to wonder how they are to he classified, since they get none of it, The rain storm of last Sunday afternoon and evening entire- This is the way tne- Coleman Independent speaks of the ball game there July Fourth: The most excitement of the day commenced at three o'clock ly avoided both cities while the count- j when the Midland base bali team took ry intervening and both south of their bats and the Clare team stepped Clare and north of Harrison were; into the diamond. It didn't take much blessed with a copious shower. | of a sport to come to the conclusion "Is there a man in all this audience,"! that it was to be a game for blood- demanded the female lecturer on j "win" was marked on every bat. Up woman's rights, fiercely, "that has ever done anything to lighten the burden resting on his" wife's shoulders? Is there a man here,,5 she continued, folding her arms and looking over the audience with superb scorn, "that has ever got up in the morning, leaving his tired, worn-out wife to enjoy her slumbers; gone quietly down stairs, made a fire, cooked his own breakfast, sewed the missing buttons on the children's clothes, darned the family stockings, scoured the pots and kettles, cleaned and filled the lamps, swept the kitchen, and done all this, if necessary, day after day uncomplainingly? If there is such a man in this audience let him rise up; I should like to see him!" And away back in the rear of the hall a middle-aged man in spectacles, in obedieuce to the summons, tim- i dly arose. He was the husband of the eloquent speaker. It was the first time he ever had a chance to "assert hi mself. "-^Ladies' Every Saturday. to the end of the sixth inning it looked as though Midland was going to: win, the score standing eight fc» four. But the Clare boys were playing ball all the time. When the Clare's stepped up to take theirbat at the last half of the'ninth they were one behind.. Excitement was high and the vast crowi was about evenly divided—nearly every one making a choice and hollering for that choice. With a man on second and a man on third without a man out it looked bright indeed for Clare, but when the Midland pitcher retired ^wo: Clare boys on strikes everybody |eld their breath. When the third, than stepped to the plate it was ball one and the next one he accepted and sent a hot liner into the field letting In the two runs. Score, 11 and 12.' It was without a doubt the" best base ball game ever played in Coleman. More local on 5th page. . Sap. Priced &msm Bslftffig-Paspte.
