The burn- ■img of the house is not a great loss as Is was suite small, but Mr* Chapman losas 8159 worth' of household goods, as lie estimates it, on which was.no in- SBeaace. It is not known how -the fire originated, whether hy some accident f re was left by a. match -dropped, or Mherwise,, or was set by some one3 as Mr. Chapman believes. >gm An.oih.er "Wreck. t Quite a wreck occurred on Tuesday if -tMs week on Wells/ Stone & Co.'s pag road near ileredith.

One day this week the Sentinel v too£ a walk (he isn't rich enough yet to ride) through an interesting and prosperous section of the county in the interests of tbe paper, meeting with many pleasant experiences among the hospitable people of Sheridan town, ship. Space forbids our mentioning all the incidents of tbe trip, but some of the more interesting are here mentioned. We made a somewhat extended halt early in the day at the -store of Curtis Palmer at what has come to be known recently as Reed's Corners, near the Bradley school. . Mr. Palmer appears to enjoy a pretty fair trade in general merchandise and is especially busy at present looking after ties and stove wood which are being gotten out by several camps on the Middle Branch in Arthur township. A large, number of Sheridan farmers are awayt from home at present at work in these and other camps in Hatton and Arthur township. Later in the day we called on Hugh McKinon and had a pleasant visit with him.. He is slowly gaining strength from the fearful loss of blood he sustained when hit by a binding pole while getting out square timber, as mentioned in the Sentinel two weeks ago. It is not generally known that after the severe hemorrhage had been stopped he lay for .about a day as cold as in death, so low were his vital forces. He has been keeping "batch" this week, his wife having gone for a brief visit with relative near Saginaw. - Along tbe road we- met Richard Hamilton and stopped" long enough to exchange compliments and inquire after the health of his son who is getting along slowly with inflamatory rheumatism occasioned by a fall from a wagon last summer. We noted that John H. Smith, who lives on the Gladwin, road near.the Bailey farm had recently put up a comfortable house and had moved therein, which with his commodious new barn looked as though he and his stock were well housed for winter. At the Bailey farm we were pleasantly entertained for a little while. Wm, Morrison, who manages the farm has everythingin perfect arrangment. The farm consists of several hundred acres of excellent land mostly cleared, with good buildings, having an excellent creek flowing through. Mrs. Morrison had just returned from a visit to a sister in Saginaw whom she had not seen in eleven years. At the pleasant invitation to come again we thought: What an excellent place to come for a sleighing partyi. -, - - We stopped at David R. Johnson's to inquire after John Johnson who is vquite sick with laryngitis, quinsy or some similar trouble. The result of a Christmas ride and exposure. He was- bearing his confinement quite cheerfully, but was decidedly sick nevertheless. The pleasantest surprise of all awaited us at "R. Lang?s when we inquired if that genial gentleman was at home and were ushered into the mids.t of a bridal party at the interesting point when congratulations follow the "tie that binds." Rev. Lowe had just performed the pleasant task of uniting Lizzie Lang and James McClung in holy matrimony. James McClung and wife are highly thought of by their numerous friends and a very pleasant party had assembled to- witness the happy union. We understand that the newly wedded pair will begin married life at the Wright farm. After a° half hour's conversatieh the Sentinel scrbe heaved a sigh and passed on. Seeing the door of theCarrow school house standing ajar,force of habit lead us in. School had just closed for the day and Geo. ~D. McCollum, the teacher, was presiding over the janitorial duties, which fall to the lot of country teachers. He began school in this district the first of the week and will have about 20 pupils. His home is in Gilmore, Isabella county. The last call of the day was at Wm. Langin's, where we enjoyed a friendly cup of tea with him and his wife and two pretty childi en. Wm. Langin has done his share in handling Clare county pine and now has a nice farm well improved. In conclusion we. would say that Sheridan township farmers are a pleasant, industrious people. They all bad a pleasant word for the Sentinel, copies of which we found in nearly every home. One thing that many of them regretted was the fact that they have no post office nearer than Clare, which is from 6 to 9 miles away. We hope at an early date to have the pleasure of visiting other portions of Clare and Isabella counties: More local on fifth page. Ed Alger is down from Park Lake. Read Talmage sermon on an inside page. Ed. Whitney spent ISTew Years with sisters in Ithaca. Mrs. C. Chase is visiting with her son Chet and friends at Mt. Pleasant.

Sine, returned to her home in Milwaukee, Wednesday, after a visit of four weeks in this city. Jas. McClung, and Lizzie Lange were: married at the home of the bride in Sheridan township, by Rev. J.,'BE*. Lowe, January 4th. ? Dr. Todd was in Coleman'Sunday to attend one of the men shot in the recent fracas near that place. C. W. Parsons of- Oaro, Tuscola county, who has been visiting his son A. H. Parsons for the past three weeks, returned home Tuesday. A. J.

Smith, baggageman at the union depot, and his family, arec visiting friends in Holly for a few days. Geo. Richardson of Harrison is wrestling with the baggage at the depot during A. H. Smith's absence. Mrs. M.A.Converse met with quite a serious accident the latter part of last week. While crossing the road she slipped and fell, sustaining a very painful injury to her arm. Dr. Sanford was called who dressed the arm, pronouncing it much worse than a broken bone> Abe McEall, whom we mentioned recently as having been sent toj)etroit for failing to support his wife, but was not accepted there owing to errors * in committing, hasleft the country. The boys say that they got him partly drunk last week and read a ficticious message to him in Wm. Bwyer's saloon, purporting to be an order to Offijeer Parrigh to arrest him again. After dark McEall left town and was seen later in Earwell making his way towg-rd Wisconsin. Wednesday's Evevening>;News,speak- ing of the senate officers, has the following: "Secretary of state, Dan E. Alward, of Clare; assistant, S. W. Hopkins, of Mt; Pleasant."" It should read as will be seen elsewhere in the Sentinel: "Secretary of Senate, Dennis E. Alward, of Clare; president pro tern. S. W. Hopkins, of Mt. Pleasant;" all of whieh goes to show that the big city papers with their dozens of paid special reporters and perfect systems make just as big blunders as their country exchanges, of far less pretensions.' ° Clare people will be interested in the following item from the Mt- Pleasant Enterprise, as the bride is quite well known here: Last evening, at the residence of the bride-s parents, Miss Clara Hunter and John T. Butcher wereunited in marriage by Rev. Geo. J. McOandless. Before the ceremony prayer was offered by Rev, D.B, Davidson. Both young^people are well known inMt.Pleasant society. Mr.JButcheris a prominent young business man and Miss Hunter is a graduate of the class of '92. We wish them happiness and prosperity. « See our Line of Gloves and Mittens.
