O. T. M. anniversary at. Clare, June 12, go -along nicely. Especial arrangements are being made to entertain the] large concourse of knights that will be present. Everyone will be delighted to learn that D. P. Markley, supreme commander K. O. T. M. of the world, will be present and address the convention. This in itself will probably bring out every knight within 50 miles of Clare. Church, Lodge and Society. Thei-adies' Union will meet Friday, June Sad, at the home of Mrs. W. S. Coaley- All members and Mends are invited to be present and bring some articleiipo_ the work'of mission, to be read. The large meeting at Mrs. W. H. -Men's was one of interest and pleasT_:e. , .

Thei-abadie-Roweil Company " The favorites have come and gone again, having deepened the impression i-iey have already made on Clare audiences, that the company is one of the best if not the best that travels this way. The played " "Faust" at Doherty's Saturday night to a good- sized atudience, the best that" has recently greeted a play . at the opera house. Francis Labadie's. * "Mephisto" •does not have horns and hoofs, and. an ugly look. He is crafty and wise, understands human frailties, and is, withal,* somewhat jovial. He is everything to everybody to accomplish his purpose of debasing. MissEowell- "Marguerite" is almost perfect. Her acting is not acting—itis nature-itself. There was hardly a' flutter of breath in the whole audience during the" "vision.'-' Manager Doherty should be heartily sustained in his effort to secure plays -of the class of that presented Saturday night. While their audiences are not . as demonstrative as at a minstrel .show, we believe such plays are duly appreciated. It is not the play, that arouses the gallery most that is most ■desirable. Three or four coarse jokes would provoke more applause" from t-ist source"t-':-i a whole evening of „ Bring In your job work. An Alarm of Fire. The "mocking bird" brought out the Are department at about four o'clock, .Saturday, while a terrific gale was - filling the air with smoke from forest fires. The alarm was caused by a small fire in straw and loose material at the rear of Dr. Todd's barn, Caught J probably from sparks blown from the. -fires'west of the city. The Are communicated with the fence leading to the barn and was easily extinguished with a few pails of water. Had the [ fire reached the' barn • nothing could have saved it and the-houses tq the east, in such a wind. It was truly a narrow escape. Fires near the Ballentine pole yard threatened the property there with destruction all day Saturday, keeping about thirty men busy protecting from fire. Had it .crossed the railroad tracks, doubtless $30,000 worth of poles would have been destroyed. Saginaw Devastated—:Ten —Cen _;t__ed Deat_ at take City—Oae _".Hied —[credit——Clare —'arrowly Escaped. Owing to the warm weather of last week drying up the woods, forest fires became numerous over all the northern part of the state. In many cases they originated from the fires kindled to clear up land. Saturday forenoon a strong breeze sprang up which increased in intensity, fanning the flames into uncontrol- ablefury. In many cases the fires reached valuable timber, and occasionally buildingSj rendering the inmates houseless. At Lake City the fires surrounded the lumbering camps of Louis Sands, cutting off all escape for about a dozen of the men. Eight of them after vain efforts to escape, leaped into a well and would have thus been saved, had not the wooden curb caught fire and fallen in on them, burning* their heads. They all perished. A fire started, probably from a spark from an engine, in the unused mill of Briggs & Cooper, at Saginaw, at about 4 o'clock. The gale fanned the flames, carrying them over a quarter of a mile across the river, burning ten blocks of houses there and then skipping over a half mile of buildings broke out afresh, destroying in all about 300 buildings and the loss is estimated at nearly a million dollars. The bridges connecting the two Saginaws were burned down. Meredith had a narrow escape. The fire raged in the A. W. Wright Lumber Co's pine west of the town, destroying the camps and about 40 head of swine. The men and horses barely escaped. James Hendrie, the chore- boy, an old man about 80 years of age- was struck by a falling tree and killed. The fire swept across both sides of the railroad. Meister's shingle mill, 1 miles north of the town, also burned. Eeed City suffered the" loss of a number of shingle sheds and about J5Q0Q worth ofishingles. About $lOO0ffs$rt_ of poles for Coleman d parties 'were [burned near Farw.ell. Other losses o£more or less account are reported from various parts of the state. "Clare did not entirely escape. Sparks blown from fires west of the city ignited some rubbish at the rear of Dr. Todd's barn, but it was happily put out before damageiwas done. Judson Wilson lost a barn by fire in Grant township. , School Notes. The geometry and general history classes are taking, general reviews. . Harry Green way and Clayton Decker called at the high school last Tuesday. Mr. Palmer occasionally recalls old memories by calling at the high school, A baccalaureate sermon will be delivered by Eev. A. H. Coors to the seniors on the Sunday previous to the commencement exercises. If everything is convenient there will be union services at the M. E. church.

Last week a medical examination was held and it- was decided best to take her to Traverse City. Mr. Schoonover expects to go next week to stay some time with a daughter at Fife Lake, where he; will be near enough to visit Mrs. Schoonover each week.
