People don't buy much winter goods - until they are compelled to. Thos. Holbrook occupies space on our correspondence (last) page. ' fTom" is catching the popular favor, and "its for your interest to read his announcement -Michigan prohibitionists have already begun to boom A. M. Todd, their late candidate for governor, for the party's nominee for the presidency in 1896. JohnEichmond, county clerk, was in the city Monday enroute- for Cadil-' lac, to meet with the other -clerks of this representative district to canvass ■■' the yotes cast for representative. Mussell, the druggist, has in his window a great-attraction, especially for the small boy. It is a perfect little upright steam engine, which/does* anything any other stationary engine does. Steam is generated by an alcohol lamp. Bill Nye wants some one to answer this question: Why should a man whose parents three or four generations back lived in trees and hung by their tails from tbe branches thereof, vote in America, not knowing a ring worm from a joint resolution, while the mothers of statesmen and warriors taxed without representation, remain dumb during the decay of patriotism? Hon. Geo. H. Waldo departed Wednesday for Midland and Detroit, where 'he will arrange his business matters so as to give his undivided attention to legislative matters, he having been recently elected to the lower branch of the state law makers, from one of the .Detroitdistricts. The grist mill at j/__[iare has been leased to James J. Gaihin of Detroit, but the mill will continue to be run as usual by Mr. Bunyan and Mr. Thompson. P. W. Lewis,the cigar manufacturer who makes "The Calkins"'cigar, is having more than he can do'tb fill the * demand for that popular brand. We - congratulate Mr. Lewis on his success. and again-call attention to the fact that Clare is an excellent point for a "hundred small industries, not only .of cigars, but of almost any kind that employs from two. to a .'dozen hands. Fifty men in ten shops are often of more value to a town than the same number all in one industry. The SEBrinNEi, is headquarters for printing town treasurers tax receipts. The Sentinel's receipts are larger, •and printed on better paper than those - you send away for. Besides, we pay taxes wilh the rest of you, and these few remarks will hold good, and are pointers for our merchants. Don't send ■ out of town for your job work, simply because you can get it a fewa cents cheaper perhaps than we can do it. ; How would you like it if we • should purchase all-of our goods out of town. Mrs. Geo. Benner visited at Farwell, Tuesday. J. Hornung was down from Crystal Lake this week. Mrs. B. Langtree of Mt. Pleasant visited friends in this city this week. Mrs. McLoud of Farwell visited at Byron Alger's, in Clare, the latter part of last week. H. Holbrook is home from Eeed City, where he has been painting and decorating the new hotel. When in need of nice cuts of beef, pork, mutton or veal, at prices to suit the times, go to Welch. Township treasurers who need tax receipts printed, will do well to leave their order at the Sentinel office. Miss Lena Eberhart is recovering from *a several weeks' illness, she having had typhoid feyer, suffering a relapse. The annual tax sales for the taxes of 1892 and, preceeding years, will take place at Harrison, Mopday, December 3, at the county treasurer's office. John Imerman's adv. merits a careful reading, but compare his prices with others. A few moments time taken that way will save you dollars. Mrs. M. B. Conklin and other Loomis ladies were in the city, Wednesday, taking advantage of some of the bargains that Clare merchants are offering. Mrs. Andrew Shaw of Alma and Mrs. Jno. Hess of Shepherd returned to their respective homes today after enjoying a visit in Clare with Mrs. A. J.

M. has made slight changes in the time of running three of its passenger trains. The morninar trains are both later. > The one ' west is changed from 8:45 to 8:55, and the one easb from 9:55 to 10:03. The evening train now arrives at 6:34 instead of 6:30. Diphtheria is prevalent in Detroit and four of the public schools, have been closed on account of it. The disease has gained a foothold at'other points in the state, and is general enough to justify the strictest precautions against its appearance at places thus far free from its ravaere. Health officers everywhere should be vigilant to prevent its spread. Notwithstanding the multitude of hunters that have swarmed _through, Clare county and the reports of excellent success, in killing deer, the fact remains that not half a dozen carcasses* or saddles have been shipped or re-shipped from this point, except such as have been shipped in fragments in hunters' baggage. .Apparently it was not much of a year for deer* .Account annual convention state board of charities'and corrections at Grand Eapids, December 4th and 5th, fcheF. & P. M. will sell excursion tickets ^0 junction points for Grand Eapids to delegates presenting certificates, signed by S. 0. Starrs, sec'y, on December 3d and 4th, limited for return to December 6th, at rate of one and #one- third fare for the round trip. The city council met Monday evening and besides auditing the usual grist of accounts and indulging in its monthly wrangle with the street commissioner, took some action on the park matter. The council instructed the city attorney to: draft a suitable .ordinance providing for the appointment of a park commission of three citizens, and defining the duties and powers of the commission. The matter will come up again at the- next regular meeting. It is hoped that all the necessary legal formality will be completed and plans digested by the time the snow goes off in the spring, so that there may be no more unnecessary delays. The Dewey Stave Company, -which has a- number of mills in Ohio, besides one at Temple in this county, and another at McBain, has begun to feel the effects of the new tariff law. Until a few weeks ago there was a manufacturing firm in Toledo which was one of their regular customers. The Toledo firm now gets its staves of a Canada stave company, the reduced tariff enabling the Tatter to undersell the Dewey Stave company in Toledo.*, This effects four or five of the company's mills in Ohio. We print tax receipts. H. C. Stevens and daughter, Annabel, are both sick. W. M. Temple was down from Temple two or three days this week. Miss Eose Loomis returned Tuesday from a visit of three months in Illinois. Mrs. B. F. Kramer's sister, Mrs. W. B. Eosvear, departed this morning for her home at Bad Axe. Mrs. E. J.

He has been scaling logs for a lumber firm north of Lake Station. He will be employed there most Of the winter. Business men will close their stores and offices Thanksgiving day from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. Persons having business with them will govern themselves according_y. M. J. Mitchell of Harrison changed cars here on his way to Hot Springs, Ark. He has been a great sufferer from rheumatism, and hopes that the medicinal properties of the Springs may benefit him. All narties wishing wood, either of best dry beech and maple, dry pine slabs, dry elm and ash or dry oak slabs, can have same delivered to their homes by H. F. Badgley. Prices right. Leave your order at Mason & Boyd's store. Frank A. Yernor of Detroit, special agent of 'the Queen insurance company, was in the city this week, looking over the company's interests, which are in the hands of their local agent, C. H. Clark. He seemed to be well pleased-with the way Mr. Clark is looking after the company's business. E. D. Garretson of Hatton was a pleasant caller at this office, Saturday. He expresses himself as more than pleased with the way the republicans rolled up majorities this year. His township has made the greatest percentage ot*political change of any in the county. From 49 democratic two years ago it has become 22 republican thisyear. Marion Dispatch: Miss Alma Alden of Clare, sa well known and highly- re- spectefepung lady who formerly resided hire, was married last Sunday at Mt. Pleasant to Harry Oliver, also of Clare, Eev. Buhl performing the ceremony. The couple were therepip- ients'of a fine lot of useful presents. The Dispatch tenders its congratulations. ': Almost everybody uses postage stamps, and as the n«^. stamps received are short on mucilagS^it might be of interest to the stampusittgpublic to know, that if they will only touch their tongue to the corner of the- envelop they propose to put a stamp on, instead of moistening the stamp itself they will be much surer of doing a good job. Many people lick the mucilage all off the stamp and consequently it will not stick. Every farmer within a radius of fifty miles of Clare should subscribe for the Clare Sentinel and STew York Tribune, both together for $1.50 per year. The Sentinel will give you all the local and county news and keep you posted on the bargains that Clare merchants are offering, while the Tribune gives you the important and interesting news of the entire world, boiled down and served.in spicy chunks. The Tribune is a 20-page paper and contains articles on nearly every topic under the sun. The new school board deserves the thanks of the district. They have be-** gun repairs upon the roof and gutters of the high school building, which for three years have needed attention. Through the negligence of former boards, the walls have been allowed to become seriously damaged, although attention was repeatedly called to the condition of things. The walls are found to be in a much worse way than was supposed, through the leakage from the gutters. The expense of repairing will be considerable, but had it been delayed a year or two longer, would have entailed an expense of more than $1000. The difficulty was discovered before the building was accepted from the contractors and should have been remedied at that time. « There will be a dance at theK. O. T. M. hall in Farwelli Thanksgiving night. Editor Featherly of the AuSable Monitor and his wife were in the city the first of the week. J. H. Canfield and family changed cars here for Farwell, Monday, whither they are moving from Harrison. S. C. Zeiter, J. E. Goodman and J. D.

Fresh and salt fish, can and bulk oysters, always in stock. Will have ttirkeys, ducks, geese and chicken for Thanksgiving. Give me a call, I can saye you money. Willbuyties. J.L. Welch. Waller has something- of much importance to our readers in his ad. It is by taking advantage of such offers that newspaper readers really get the most return for the subscription price paid for the paper. The'death of Edwin M. Sinnott of Vernon township occurred Tuesday, Nov. 20. The funeral was conducted from the congregational church by Eev. S. A. Long, Wednesday, and the body laid at rest at Cherry Grove. The deceased was born in Crawford county Pa., March 24,1842. He enlisted in Company K>6f the 23d Mich., infantry, Feb. 26,1864 and on June 28 of the next year was transferred to Co. E of the 28th Mich infantry and made seargant. He was mustered out of the service at Ealeigh, ,1S. C, June 5,1866. For a number of years he has beep a resident of Yernon township where he was highly esteemed as a neighbor. For some time he had been a great sufferer 'from rheumatism. There is a new cigar^actory in town, located over Kelly's gun shop, just north of the G. A. E. hall.' The proprietors, Foerster & Cumings, come from Wayne and are young men, though with considerable experience in the cigar business. The new factory will make both ten and five cent goods, but at present especial attention will be given to "Our Leader, "a nickle cigar which is better than any other five cent cigar,on the market, and as good as a large share of the cigars that sell under big names for ten cents. It may not be generally known, but is none the less a fact, that Clare is a great ten cent cigar town,few nickle cigars, comparitively, are smoked here, the reason being chiefly that the five cent goods have been of rather inferior to*- bacco even lor that price. Foerster & Cumings make a nickle cigar tbat they believe/will sell on its merits and become popular. We bespeak for the firm, which intends to make Clare its permanent home, a cordial reception and a liberal patronage. x To the Public. All parties are hereby notified not to give my, wife, Mrs. B. F.
