C Votaxie' %* CLARE, MICH., FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1894 ltoal» H5 AIX MQABi WELIL ILEAlD) TO GLARE, MAY g<Q>„ TJfr© IImv@iliMg and Dedieation of th& Soldiers* Momiiiment will ©raw large crowds Iroin a Loiig Bistanse. ©1SHH6UISH3EB GUESTS "WILL BE HERE The nearer, time approaches for the sservance of Decoration Day and the imposing ceremony of unveiling the Iseautiful monument which the Belief Corps of Glare with loving hearts and willing hands contribute to the memory of our nation's soldier dead—the nearer that day approaches the greater the promise that the occasion will be the most impressive and the attendance the iargest known in this part of the state. Unlike the preparation for a 4th of July occasion, no great noise is being sm&cle, but yet arrangements are being made that will bring more civic and military organisations and plain citizens to our city than upon any former occasion. Here let us suggest to our citizens,- that they will be called upon to entertain in a general way a city full. ¥rom nearly every village and city within 50 miles of Clare assurances have come of a. magnificent atteh- 3BREV1TIES. if are so many coming? Because a soldiers' monument is to be unveiled. This is no common occurrence, as will be seen when it is known that the monument unveiled at Clare on Decoration Day will be the first soldiers' Monument in Michigan north of Grand Bapids. Every teacher and every pupil in her school within a reasonable distance of" CE&re should be here on that, day and leceive an object lesson in patriotism and devotion, as they behold the battle scarred veterans in blue gather about the monument which loving hands have erected to honor those who now camp across the river. Every patriot parent should bring Ms children to see the ceremony and then teach them' its significance. Every citizen should witness it and gain new devotion to the old flag. Finally, every voter should remember that the small remnant of the grand army.of '61 to '65 is fast dropping from the ranks, and that they deserve not only a country's grateful memory when dead, but still more, a nation's kindest care while they remain—not niggardly and piecemeal, but generous and spontaneous, even as their service to their country was unstinted and voluntary. ATTEWTI©^, COMRADES! Once again we are called upon to observe Memorial service. Quite different is this from Decoration day. While upon tSe latter we decorate the graves of comrades who have since the war been laid t© their last rest, it was declared by our leader, John A. Logan, that we should, not only decorate, but we should as well hold a Memorial ser- fice. As a Post, our numbers the past year have not been diminished by death, yet to honor those who stood Shoulder to shoulder by us during the fierce battle, is our duty, remembering that but a few years, at the most, should the custom prevail, our graves will help sweE the number to be strewn with flowers. Comrades, let us, this year, with the same love for all and hatred toward none, assemble again. The last bugle call will soon be heard "by- all living and soon we shaE all meet upon God's eternal camping ground. Then the last battle will have been fought—the battle of death. I urge upon you to lay aside all cares and meet at Post hall, Sunday, May 21th, at 9 o'clock, for the observance of such service. ISTot only are the comrades of "W. S. Hancock Post requested to be present, but every man that fought for the right, whether a member of a Post or not. Come, and let heart beat with heart, as did they in time of peril. W. S. Cooley, Com. .A. A. Shavtsb, Adj t. ADVERTISED LETTERS. ' Unclaimed letters remaining in the Clare post office for the week ending May 12th, 1894.

Reynolds of Owosso, secretary of the state Sunday school association, was in Clare, Saturday, conferring with the executive committee of the county association in regard to the summer county convention. It is proposed to have a rally of the Sunday schools of the county in connection with the summer meeting of the association. Rev. S. A. Long's sermon, Sunday morning, was really very interesting. His text was Luke 15:32—the parable of the prodigal son. The attention of the hearers was directed to the selfishness of the son, who remained at home, in thinkihg that the father ought to reject the prodigal instead of reclaiming him. Practical lessons were drawn. James McKay and Geo. Currie, who are associated in the cedar paving business in Detroit, have recently been awarded a $42,000 paving contract which they will begin upon soon. Mr. McKay has just completed the shipping of a large amount of cedar paving poles from Clare county to Detroit, where they will be prepared for paving by W. E. Currie, who is extensively engaged in that business. Mr. McKay departed Tuesday for Detroit. Sunday, May 20th, the T. & A. A. will run the first excursion of the season to Crystal Lake and Erankfort.

Returning, leaves Erankfort 6 p. m., Crystal Lake 6:30, giving excursionists six hours at either place. Eare for round trip, only $1.50. Fill your lunch baskets and take your family. While all must deplore the burning Sunday, for the third time, of Dr. Talmage's magnificent church in Brooklyn, few will join the doctor in the belief that the calamity is the immediate work of the Lord or that it is particularly good in His sight. Neither is it a mystery that need be adjourned to the next world for solution The causes are of mundane origin, doubtless, and operated according to laws equally applicable to a church ot a prison house, to a palace of sin or a temple of sacrifice, and probably the reverend gentleman struck the right note when he threw the immediate responsibility on electricity. That the good Lord, "whouoeth all things well," should have any grudge against Dr. Talmage or his church, is inconceivable, and the mere intimation savors of what many define as blasphemy. Carelessness, not Providence, crosses the wires when the electric current is traveling.—Ex. E". Bicknell was on business to Saginaw, yesterday. Dr. Shaw of Calkinsville is in the city this afternoon. H. Holbrook was at Coleman part of this week, painting. Biggest bargains ever offered in millinery at Mrs. Dwyer's. Mrs. Davis of Cadillac was the guest of Mrs. E. H. DeYogt, today.

Postmastsr Maynard has enlarged the service of the postoffice by the addition of a large number of lock boxes. Mrs. R. G. Peters of Manistee was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. A. Thurston, Tuesday. Mrs. Peters was a former neighbor of theirs at Manistee. A ball game between Clare and Harrison, at Harrison, billed for tomorrow will probably be postponed, unless the boys decide to substitute a game of snow ball. Mrs. G. A. Graves will start ner June sale of millinery on May 19th. All those in need of hats w^ill do well to call and examine prices. Having a large stock, must reduce it. Our contract by which the Sentinel is enabled to furnish the Chicago Weekly Inter Ocean and the Sentinel togeather for $1.50, will expire June 1. Those who wish to secure this remarkable offer will need to act soon. Eor the Bay Yiew Camp Meeting and Chautauqua Assembly at Bay Yiew,Mich. July 10th to August 15th, the T. A. A. & H. M. Ry. will make rates of one fare for the round trip, tickets for sale at all stations from July 9th to the 18th, limited to return until Aug. 16th. Nelson Carrow, a progressive farmer of East Sheridan, was in the city, Tuesday; to take home a purchase which he had recently made of A. J. Doherty, a registered Jersey bull. Mr. Carrow's stock is far above the average in selection and he expects in time to have one of the best herds in this section. The Central house, BE, Orth proprietor, is undergoing considerable interior improvement at the hands of Jas. Alger & Co. The hotel is being redecorated both upstairs and down. The paper is all hung and when a little painting that is contemplated is completed, the house will be one of the neatest appearing dollar-a-day houses in the state. The house has enjoyed a liberal patronage all this season, which, as a rule, has been a hard one for hotels. The attention of Marshall W. T. Weir has been called to the fact that a large number of boys from ten to fourteen years of age and younger, are on the streets at laight when they might better be at home. The mar- shall proposes to look sharply after the matter and says that if any parents desire their boys especially looked after he would be glad to haye them mention the fact to him and he will do what he can to co-operate with parents to do away with the nuisance of boys carrousing on the streets at night. We would suggest right here that there are numerous parents in this city that will soon reap of the whirl-wind what they have sown upon the wind in permitting their boys, aye, and girls, to roam at will both day and night. The Saginaw Courier-Herald has the following regarding one of Grant township's many prosperous farmers: A. P. Brewer has for years been known as one of Saginaw's most prominent lumbermen. He operated in the Saginaw district many years, and at one time Tan a saw mill here, but it was destroyed by fire. Latterly he has operated in Minnesota and also in Arizona. Mr. Brewer is also a practical farmer. He has one of the finest farms in the state, located in Clare county, four and a half miles northeast of Clare. He purchased the land from the government and has 400 acres, with the exception of 17 acres, all under cultivation, and all but 12 acres are entirely free from stumps. Mr. Brewer has put in seven miles of tile drain. The. farm has a commodious farm residence and four fine barns. It is devoted to the raising of produce as well as stock, Mr. Brewer having a fine herd of Shorthorns and Jerseys. the ^LEABEM.99? slif i]®ykB]jj)( £f sf ,""-,» '" " ' " ii"' ' ME liave tlhe largest •?' and most complete i Stock of SHOES m .the City9 which we are selling at very w prices.
