HIE PEOPLE'S JOPULAR PAPER, IToday it Enters Upon its Ninth Year.--Our aim to Make it Better than Ever Before. During six of the eight years that have now passed since, its initial publication, The Peess has been under its present management, and never before in its history has it been as prosperous as it is today. Though at first there were many to predict failure, the publisher had no misgivings, for his faith in the growth and prosperity of Clare village, and of the tributary townships in Clare and Isabella counties, was strong and unwavering. The Peess has endeavored faithfully to contribute toward the advancement of the NUBS OB- NEWS. Mrs. Dell Lindsay, a son. Under Sheriff Mack wont to Harrison Monday. A. A.

It has been and is pre-eminently the people's paper—fearless in the denunciation of wrong, and in the advocacy "of what it believes to be right. It has neve\ attempted to pander to two sides of any public question in the vain endeavor to please all; but, recognizing the right of any person to differ from it, it has exercized its own right to discuss every oues- tion from its own standpoint. Such a course has won the confidence of the people, and as its business has grown with the growth of the village and country, so has it gained a more cordial support from, and a firmer hold upon the affoctions of, its readers. The policy of <Tke Pbess will not be changed except ia thsft additional efforts •will be put forth to make it even better in every department than it has been in the past. To the thrifty and enterprising people of this section is duo a share of the 'credit for the splendid success which The u. ^jjcssJjA-i-nt^ned.- -and.. .upon tbg%.r tn<$ TOyuragement and support "will depend its future welfare. But its publisher entertains no doubt that it will continue to enjoy the earnest support of the people if it oontinues to merit iiheir support, and ijs to that it can say that it is better prepare ed than it ever has been to serve the peo\ pie. The Pbess now occupies its own building and the office has been restocked with a largo supply of new tJTe an(i other material, thus enabling it to compete in all kinds of printing, both as to quality and price, with city offices.
