The Mt. Pleasant Times speaks as follows: In the language of the Sen-; ■"KEEL, the city of Clare is blessed with only two lawyers. If the presence of able attorneys are a blessing to a city, Mt.

The new mode of travelling has come to stay and the sooner the fact is recognized the better. 4 Whether Bro.Slocum of the. Oakland County Advertiser has been experimenting—on some of his friends— or has taken hearsay evidence we know not, but there is a prescription of his: "Let any victim of the liquor habit eat tomatoes, with salt, consuming as much each day as possible. Let the eating of tomatoes and salt, to excess be continued for several days, and the tomato eater will find liquor offensive and undrinkable, so much so that it will be thrown up. This is the cheapest gold cure yet heard of, and itjs said to, be effective." More local on 4th page. School begins next Monday. INext Monday is Labor Day. L E Davy, Mt. Pleasant, yesterday.

The promise of a $1 fiddle will keep a schoolboy in happines for a year, says, an exchange. The fun connected with its possession will expire in an hour. How what is true of the schoolboys is equally true of men. All they differ is in the price of their fiddles. There are but few people who know what.a'Graphophoneis.

The gods'be thanked! the old Elden building which has stood in the street^ so long while the new brick block was being built, has been torn down and the rubbish removed. But then we would be glad to have all the old Took- eries in town ncoved into the street, if hew blocks as handsome as the' last ■one built would take their place. \ Why do merchants encourage; the credit system? Yqu answer,. me that you don't. Yes, but you do. . If the system were not encouraged by the merchants it would notr.be in existence to-day. Did you ever stop, to/ think that the merhcantile community - of ;the country are the ;only body of men that tolerate, the credit system. Let's see. you buy postage stamps, postal notes, money orders, etc., no credit: try it and. what will yon be told. Go to the theater and you .pay- money. Express companies demand cash, and railroad tickets are cash on delivery to the purchaser. Why should not the merchant demand cash? Simply because he encourages the credit system. It may be an im- possiblity to completely eradicate the . system, "but strict limitations on credit is a step on the right road, ahfi its evolution, will be practically a casli basis system of doing business. It is worth, a trial and should be begun at once. It would quickly spread, like measles in a country school, and when it does it would solve the problem" for all time. When sifted down it would be found that the credit system is -the progenitor of and responsible for more evils that affect the financial business world than all other agencies combined. Uot only this but it fosters extravagance in the purchase of goods which can be very well done without. v*- j£m 5f^?! *t.*.i£'tri.«m.-^^«*4i&ir.
