SCHOOL NOTES. (By Modern Beaumont and Fletcher.) Messrs: Tatman, Bicknell and Perry visited the several departments last week. Mr. Jenney and Dr. Sauford made a pleasant call at the high school Tuesday. It was the first visit of the latter in his new position. Thelst Primary now enrolls 95 pupils of which number eight have entered within the past week. Also one new pupil in the 2nd Intermediate. Vertical writing is being introduced in bhe lower grades with promises of good results. This for form of writing is steadily gaining preference in the leading schools of the country. As one of the teachers was coming to, school recently she met two small boys carrying a large kettle. Inquiring what use they intended making of it one of them promptly replied: "We're taking it to school to sugar down the teachers." A special song, recitation pr reading -voluntarily offered, to be giving on the ^ first morning of each week is to be the new feature of our chapel exercises for the coming year. -Visitors are especially welcome on these occasions. Miss Belle Ironmonger favored us • with a very interesting and impressive "recitation which was finely delivered ■ at chapel exercises on Monday morning. MissJronmonger's rendition convinced us that her eloctionary powers are by ' no means limited. The Geometry class is progressing quite fovorably but the general sentiment seems to coincide with the words of Euclid tc his pupil, Ptolemy: "There is ho royal road to Geometry. The Clerks' Ball Game. The clerks will try next Tuesday to teach their bosses, the business men, how to play ball. As many of them are excellent ball tossers a close and exciting game is looked for.

Every member be present, as there is plenty of' work. The Ladies' Union will meet next Eriday, the 27th, at the home of Mrs. R, H.- Jenney. A most cordial invitation is extended to all. The meeting last week at Mrs, Wm. Ross1 was well attended aud was one of profit and pleasure to all present. There was installation of officers at the meeting of Zenobia chapter, No. 129, Monday evening. Mrs. Whitney of Mt. Pleasant and her son's wife, Mrs. Geo. Whitney, were iu attendance- They, favored the order with brief but appropriate remarks. Jas. H.G-al liver, W. P., Mrs. Sarah A. Johnson, A. M., Mrs. Erances Wolsky, treas., and other officers, were .heard A Golden Harvest is now assured to the farmers of the West and. Northwest, and in order that the people of the more Eastern States may see and realize the magnificent crop conditions which prevail along its lines, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul R'y has arranged a series of three (3) Harvest excursions for August 29, September 10 and 24, for whichoround trip excursion tickets (good for return on. any Eriday from September 13 to October 11 inclusive) will be sold to various points in the Westi Northwest and Southwest at the low rate of about one fare. Eor further particulars apply to the nearest coupon ticket agent or address HA-Riiy Merger, Michigan Passenger Agent, Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul iVy, Detroit, Mich. Credit Business. The Mb. Pleasant Democrat says: "The Clare Sentinel preached a sermon last week on the credit system and said merchants encourage the same. This is probably true, but when it says merchants can do otherwise, it makes the statement without much consideration. The paper cites as parallel cases, that railroads, theatres, postoffices, express companies do not give credit, but it-don't think to state that the institutions spoken of have a dead cinch on the public. There isn't a postoffice on every corner, and Postmaster Smith isnt selling stamps at cut rate price. If you don't want to ride on the one railroad that comes to your town, you can foot it. The railroad don't depend on your ticket. If you don't like the express company, you might start a little one of your own, -but it would be up hill work. You have to pay your money to attend the theatre if you want to go, because its billed for another town tomorrow night. The credit system in a business is a bad one, but it can't be helped. It might be helped by lopping off well- known dead beats,-but good responsible men are entitled to credit and can always get it." We .don't want to quarrel with Brother Miller, but his argument is as illogical as that of the credit merchant who says be ' 'can't help it." The railroads, express companies,theatres,etc., are parallel cases, for in the larger cities where there are dozens of roads, even competing roads, they do not vary their rule. Neither do the theatres, nor the banks, those leaders of business. Neither do insurance companies, brokers, municipalities. It is only the merchant and those whose business hinge on him that indulge in and therefore foster a general credit busines's. . Even the single store at the crqsrj roads, a monopoly at that, does it, because the proprietor got in- tothe notion. On the other band,cash stores are run side-by-side with the credit store and thrive. If it is argued that railroads keep up a cash system because they can combine, it may be said that the merchant has the same opportunity. Shingle Bolts." I will pav highest cash nrice for pine and cedar shingle bolts, delivered at the mill. Single lengths must be 19 in. long, double lengths 38 in. 41-3, A. S. Ehoades, Clare, Mich. CIRCUIT COURT. Lost or Stolen. Lost, strayed, or stolen, about Aug. 5th, a Sorrel Mare, three years. old, weight about 1000 lbs., white spot in face, slender built, shoes on front feet. Will pay ten -dollars for her return. 40-4t-pd J. E. Eoutch, Or. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Pair Highest Medal and Dipk Circuit court for Clare county convened at Harrison, Monday, Judge Peter E. Dodds presiding. The calendar was taken up promptly and pushed forward in that businesslike manner in which Judge Dodds is making an enviable reputation. The first case was the People against John Kane, Harrison, for the violation of the liquor law, selling on Sunday. A conviction was obtaided. This is the first conviction of the kind in tbe county for years, and the first that Prosecuting-Attorney Quinn has had a fair opportunity to appear in. The next case was against Caywood Knapp of Earwell, for violation of tbe liquor law. Proceedings were quashed on account of defective papers. The case of the People against Chas. Stobl for carrying concealed weapons, went over the term. . ; The case of the People versus Sextus Bullman, bastardy, resulted in conviction. Sentence not yet imposed. Tbe jury found Edward Canfield, charged with larceny from dwelling, guilty of simple larceny. Guss Earkel pleaded guilty of larceny. The case of tlie People against Robert Becum, for slander, was settled. •>. So also were the two cases, 8 and 9. of W. H. Wilson and S. A. Wilson against the township of Greenwood. The next case, number 15 on the calendar, was the Tobacco Riyer Milling and Manufacturing' Co. against Robert Mussell. This case had a local bearing of more tnan usual interest. It was a suit brought to compel Mas- sell to pay $500, claimed by tbe company to bave been subscribed by him to establish the flouring mill. He claims that his subscription was $50 and that the amount bad been changed without his authority. A verdict of $500 was found for the plaintiffs. Without commenting on the verdict, we can say that there-is general indignation expressed at the-result. It is' considered significant that the jury on the first ballot stood 7 to 5 for the defendant. Charles L. Dolph, Temple, was a- warded a verdict of $35 against Elisha White of Earwell. The case of most general interest to this city was that brought by Miss Lizzie Kellev to recover damages for injuries received by falling from a sidewalk in the soutn part of this city. The case was called- yesterday (Thursday) morning and continued two days. It went to the jury at five o'clock this afternoon and at seven a verdict for $500 ffor the plaintiff was rendered, of which 'her attorney gets half. Other cases on the calendar bave not yet been taken up. Court will probably not-adjourn until some time next week. Mrs. Warren KeUer. The announcement of the death of Mrs. Warren Keller, which occurred last evening after a brief illness, comes with startling suddenness. The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon -at-2 o'clock at the house, Seventh street west, conducted by Rev. Long. Mrs. .Keller was -born in Crawford county, Penn., in 1864, her maiden name being Adella Willson. She was married July 2,1885, to Warren Keller. Her mother has made her home with her for some time,; the father being dead. Besides her husband and mother she leaves a son about nine years old. Deceased was a sister of Mrs. C. H.

Credit business is falling 'into discredit, and the ready-pay system seems to be coming to the front to stay. Several of our business men have adopted the cash plan and now Curtis ■Palmer, the enterprisingN Colonville merchant, has issued" the following circular to his patrons, which speaks for itself:' Colonville, Mich., Sept. 16,1895. Dear friend: . You are aware, perhaps, that Sept. 10th, I adopted a "ready pay" system of business in my store at Golpnville. This is a matter of considerable importance to you as you will see by reading carefully what follows. I am sure this system will work to our mutual good, and Gap Only Offend Those Who Do Not Expect To Pay. A large portion ,of my customers pay in butter and eggs and so have already adopted the ready pay nlan, - and by making, it universal I can sell cheaper than I cduld possibly do and be to the time and expense of book keeping, which is not only expensive, but often, annoying to both buyer and .seller, besides the occasional.! loss on bad accounts which some one must make- good. I have tried the credit system without success. I invite all who want to save money to cooperate with me: I shall continue to take good butter and eggs as cash and will pay the highest possible price. The nicest butter and eggs will bring better priqes. Poor butter I can not use as all my butter I sell in a foreign market. 1 take pleasure in the fact that I have succeeded with your help: in making an established reputation on the out side market for Clare county, butter and eggs—yes,, eggs, as well as batter, For Uniform Sized, Fresh, Clean, White-shelled, Northern Eggs Bring More In the Market Than Any Other. With my eastern and northern market for eggs and butter, and my ample cold storage facilities it is impossibl- to over-stock me. I ask your careful inspection of the following partial list of goods. Compare my prices with what you pay elsewhere and I am confident you will continue to give me a large share of your patronage. . ** * . Thanking you for your past favors and soliciting, your continued confidence, I am, yours'respectfully, C. Calmer. Here followed a long list: of articles of everyday us*e, showing : that his prices are now about one-fourth less than the usual credit prices on groceries, dry goods,, boots and shoes,c hard- w.are^etc., all of which'lines he carries.
