' contained the The Evart Bevlew following last week: Chippewa Lake, Mich., July 11.—Excitement and concern are manifested in this section of Mecosta county over circumstances which seem to point to the perpetration of a murder. So strong has become the suspicion, that the sheriff and prosecuting attorney hayebeen compelled to take cognizance of the case and an official investigation is now being conducted. Last Sunday evening, John A. Nelson, commonly known as "Dell" Nelson, a farm hand employed by Thos. Mlerton in Chippewa township, accompanied Miss Ellerton and a Miss Bennett to the home of the latter. Here Miss Ellerton left the couple and went on to her home, a short distance of a quarter of a mile. The young man remained at Miss Bennett?s for a short time and then started for his home at Mr. Ellerton's. No one has yet been found who has seen him since that time. , It is shown that he had no money \ with him, and it is not probable that %$ithout means he would have undertaken a journey. Other circumstances seem to point to the fact that a •crime is responsible for his non-appearance at home. There is another jyoung man who is said to be jeaflous of Nelson's attentions to one of the two girls, but who has not been living in this vicinity for some time. On the .same night on which Nelson disappeared, this young man was seen in the vicinity of the Ellerton and Bennett residences and acting, as those thought who saw him, in a strange manner. He, too, has not been seen since and search is being made both for him and for Nelson. Work on the new brick block is being crowded along. There is an incessant hang of hammers early and late. W. H. Elden expects to move his goods in from the old building next week as he will not wait for new shelving. It will probably not be over two weeks before Dayy & Oo. move into their section of the block. R. M. Mussell will come in. a little later as he is al ready well quartered and is not in so great haste to move. Subscribe for the Sentinel. West Fifth street is being re-clayed. The work being done is mostly gratuitous. Hon. Geo. H. Waldo of Detroit, was in the city this morning looking after business. Prof. A, C. Burnham of the "University of Illinois is home on a vacation. He came this morning. Mr. and Mrs. Yerity of Chicago are guests of A. J. Doherty. The ladies were Seminary school mates back in old York state. Eire in the old saw dust and logs near the T. & A. A. track west of Lister & Ort's mill, required the service of the fire department last week and again this week. This piece of ground becomes a menace to the city every summer. The musical entertainment by the Schubert Symphony club at the opera house Wednesday evening was highly enjoyable. Seldom has a Clare audience heard its equal both in the vocal and in the instrumental numbers. The vocalization by Miss Knight was remarkably fine and Master Tommy Purcell is a little wonder. It is the current rumor around the local E. & P. M. office that work will ; begin next week on the new union depot, on the old site. We hope this is more than a rumor- as the public has waited long and patiently for the rebuilding of a union station. Severe fires are running in the fields andwoods two tofour miles south of the city and much damage is being done to fences, wheat in the shock and to the woods. Several buildings have narrowly escaped, and still greater damage is feared. Fires are also running in various other points near here. Eire has been burning in John Dunlop's fields for two months. • A cyclone struck Yernon City last night. As a result the house formerly occupied by Mrs. LeMain lies in ruins. However it was no wind cyclone, nor a very noisy one, for none of the near neighbors admit having heard its visitation. Sometime during the darkness a crowd of men assembled and tore the building entirely down, making a complete wreck of it. The house has borne a bad name for years and this method was doubtless, taken ot exterminate a nuisance that repeated appeals to the law had failed to ac complish. Horace Keys returned from Saginaw, Tuesday evening, where he had .been for two or three weeks. Mrs. S.O. Wood and children returned to Holly, Thursday, after enjoying a visit with Clare friends. Loomis needs a new school house very much and a meeting has been called to bond the district for that purpose. Arkansas, the name of the State, is officially pronounced as spelled, but the official pronunciation of the river is Arkansaw, although spelled in the same way as the State. The E. & P. M. will sell excursion tickets to Saginaw and return July 21st limited to date of sale at 80c for round trip. Train leaves Clare at 8:10 a. m.,-returning leaves Saginaw at 7:30 p.m. Ered Postal's hotel, the new Gris- wold house, in Detroit, is attracting attention. Of course it is first class in all respects. Everybody who knows Ered will want to stop at the Gris- wold,—Hersey Outline. The Texas girl who persuaded her lover to let her hang him to prove his affection, may not be a type of the new woman, but she has introduced new methods of courtship. This is certainly giving the woman a little too much rope, besides keeping the lover in painful suspense. Mrs. A. W. Mclntyre and daughter Mrs. Hubel returned the latter part of last week from McBain, where Mrs. Mclntyre had been taking care of her daughter, Mrs. George Smith, who has been quite sick. They reported a son born to Mr. and Mrs, Smith the 3d- The death of Miss Anna Lansing, daughter of Samuel Lansing, occured at her home near Beaverton July 14. She was born in Hungerford, Ont., March the 11th, 1878. She leaves a father and two brothers and' many friends to morn the departure of her young life. She was buried at Cherry Grove. Lena Kennedy, better known to the police as "Erenchy" was brought before Justice Roekafellow Thursday as disorderdy. She got the extent of the law, ninety days at Detroit. She had been out of the criminal retreat but a week, having just completed a sentence administered by a Mt. Pleasant justice for maintaining a disorderly place in Yernon City." More local on 5th page. Nice rain Sunday night. Grant DeEoe has been sick. Jesse Bigley was down from Temple over Sunday. Master Haze Keller was visiting at Mt. Pleasant this week. The frame of Dan Grouse's new residence of 7th street is up. Mrs. J. H. Wilson is receiving a visit from her sister, of Grand Eapids. Mrs. T. J. Dwyer was visiting in Saginaw a couple of days this week. Dr. Kenwendeshon of Beaverton, was an agreeable caller at this office the 12th. The excessive dry weather has so effected the grass crop that few people can afford to have hay fever this year. Ered Harris started on his wheel Monday morning for Lansing, where he joins Prof. Hutchison, both wheeling from there to Niagara Falls. The Misses Someroak of Saginaw have been visiting Misses Maud and Winnine Rhodes and other friends here. They returned home Tuesday. The T. & A. A. excursion train for Toledo, that was to have started from Clare, Sunday did not show up. A good many disappointed people was the result The new bridge just this side of Mt. Pleasant has been completed. This will be good news to the people of this direction who have occasion to drive to Mt. Pleasant. The publishers of the Sentinel feel very grateful to the Clare correspondent of the Earwell Register for the large amount of free advertising we are receiving at his hands. Porter Randall returned Thursday morning from the Soldiers' Home at Grand Rapids, where he went a few weeks ago. Mr. Randall is undecided whether he will return again or not. The base ball games which Clare was to play this week at Ithaca and St. Louis were declared off for various reasons. A game has now been arranged for with the D. A. 0. club, which will be at Clare August 2d. Mr. and Mrs. Will Goodman and children, Ered and Hazel, and Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Chamberlain and their children Bernie and Don, and Miss Gage of Saginaw, are outing at Crooked Lake this week. Wm. Seals who lives south of the city, had his hand crushed while coupling cars at Beaverton last week Thursday. Drs. Burner of Clare and Kenwendeshon of Beaverton fixed up the hand in the best manner possible. It is a little unusual that two persons of families so nearly connected should die so nearly at the same time as Mr. Callam and Mrs. Fick. James Fick and Mrs. Callam are brotMer and sister. The one lost a wife the other a husband, the former the 11th the latter 12th of July. While Sol. Mixter was taking a load of people to Long Lake July 4th, one of the hind wheels of the buggy collapsed and threw Mr. Mixter to the ground, his side coming in contact with a log sustaining injuries from which he still suffers. No bones were broken however.—Cleaver. The Choir boys of the St. John's Episcopal church of Saginaw, w. s. will take another summer outing on the banks of Budd Lake at Harrison. We know of no spot in inland Michigan that bids fairer as an ideal spot in which to spend a few summer weeks than among the lakes and hills near Harrison. Guy M. McCain and George James, two boys of the town, were arrested by Marshal Bennet under warrant sworn out by Wm. R. Jury, detective of the E: & P. M., for • jumping on and off cars at the depot. This movement on part of the company has been expected for some time.—Evart Review. Itr would be just as well, if some of the boys of this city would cut this article out and paste it in their hat, as there is no telling how soon they may be caught in the same way. A Dastardly Crime:—John Saunders, from near Earwell a man about fifty years of age, was taken to Mt. Pleasant last week, charged with criminal assault on Rosetta Lapeear, the 11-year old daughter of John Lapeear of Gilmore township. The prisoner was taken before Justice Whitney, waived examination, and was bound over to the circuit court, bail at $500 which. he was unable to procure and went to jail. The alleged assault was committed while the parents of the child were away from the house for a short time. v, Ifili .©(D(S>dlg 75c Dress G-oods reduced to • n k ;; 621c 45. & 50c. 25c. 19c.

"How dear to our heart is the old Silver dollar when some kind -subscriber presents It to view; the liberty head without necktie or collar, and., all the strange things that to, us seem so new; the wide spreading eagle, the arrow below it, the stars and the words with the strange things they tell; the coin of many fathers, we're glad that we know it, for some time or - other 'twill come in right well—the spread eagle dollar, the star" spangled dollar, the old silver dollar we all love so- well."— Exchange. - -The Cadillac News and Express- notes a new and important factor in the development of northern Michigan is to be.the increased demand for wood pulp and theplentifulness of the- timber from which it is best made in this section. The best woods for ordinary print and manilla papers are spruce, balsam and jack pine, but all varieties of -pine, hemlock, and even* the despised tamarack make good pulp. All fine-leaf wood excepting cedar and popular among the broad-leaf species produce a ""'strong fibre. The- coming paper mil] will make its own pulp, fibre and paper under one roof direct from the logs. , Michigan "has a future in this industry^ which is. called upon to furnish 8,000 tons of paper a day for the United States.. The News and Express is correct There are immense possibilities in the: future for northern Michigan..
