The water there is quite deep, covers considerable ground and would make excellent ■ boating. . Every town ought to have a- park and we know of no town or city that has a prettier place for a park, than Clare. A few weeks ago .some of our good citizens nearly went into spasms be- . cause two or three law abiding people prayed so loud they disturbed, their neighbors. Saturday night a mob of fifty boys and young men (?) for nearly two mortal hours, with horns and pans, paraded abQut town, making a racket equalled only by the natives of Central Africa, regardless of the comfort, of the sick, the aged or infants, without let or hindrance. . It was a different thing, you know. We went berrying Monday for the first time since those halcyone days whence used to spend our time at the swimmin' hole and then go home and say we "couldn't find none." But times, have changed. Do you see that fiery halo at the extremity of our classic nose? That i& sun burn. LSote those excoriations upon our. damask cheek? Briers did it. Observe that dilapitated gait? That was caused by a fall from aer\al heights while attempting to do a high balancing act on a hemlock log. Our form got "off its feet" and we "pied" our pail of ber-. riessanserust at the bottom of a. brush heap. Ho, tapoies have changed. Choice groceries of all kinds at Buell & Son's. Arthur Gager of Saginaw is visiting his daughter, Mrs. W. D. Perrin. C. H. Clark of the Clare bank, is visiting his father,. A. H.> Clark, at Kalkaska. John Corbett, brother of Mrs. S.

Goodenow of 5th street was-just three score and ten last Monday. The old gentleman is enjoying' pretty good health. Among remem: brances was a ."nice gift from his son, I. J..Goodenow, who is »editor of the White Pigeon Journal. This.morning's daily papers discloses the startling news that the cold, storage fire at Chicago was incendiary, and that the structure was fired to cover up the fact' that the building had been pillaged of thousands of dollars' worth of property stored there. Some one has confessed. Miss USTina Turner returned-, Thursday last, to her home in Evart, after several months spent with her sister, Mrs.,A. H. Bockafellow, at Roswell, ~8ew Mexico. Miss Turner visited in Clare this week, the guest of Miss Carrie Bockafellow. She left A. H.

Oh, the joys of ye editor's lifel The week is on its last legs; the midnight hour draweth nigh; ye editor sits with pen dipped in ink trying to write an editorial on the silver question, gazing upward during the long pauses between ideas at the pale-faced moon, wondering whether' the natives up there use silver worth more than fifty- nine cents on the dollar, when, "Rat- tle-ty-bang-bang!" What's that? Only a charivari, that relic of bjarbarism, given gratuitously for the benefit of the newly wedded couple who have moved in next door to ye editor. Write! Why, a fellow might as well try to fly. Ply? By. the way, that's just what we'll do, so good bye, we'll finish that editorial after we read Grover's message. * * Wanted: A good shower. J. W. Schermerhorn is. outing at Arnold lake. S. C. LKLirkbride and wife returned, Tuesday, from Philadelphia, L3ST. Y. A. W. Mclntyre is expected to return from Traverse City, tomorrow.

The Free Methodist church as a circuit in and around Clare is coming up under the labors of Rev. and Mrs. Cay- wood. The Ladies' Union will hold its meeting Friday, August 11th, at the home of Mrs. John Sexsmith. A cordial invitation to all members and friends. The meeting last week at Mrs. C. H. O'Donald's, on account of the rain, was small, but those present enjoyed the time spent there. We recently had the-pleasure of visiting J. J. Wilcox's .mill, four miles south of this city, in Yernon township. Mr. Wilcox last fall bought 160 acres of land "and built a mill to cut up the timber thereon. About twenty hands are here busily employed, quite a little settlement having been begun by them. 15^000 feet of hardwood Js the usual daily cub, besides^ the,.large shipments of bark that are being- made. Mr. Adams, foreman in-tiie mill, seems to be the right man for the place,, and, keeps things humming, There is also a grocery and general store conducted in connection with the-mill, where we found the bookkeeper, J. D. Brown, a very agreeable gentleman, .busily engaged posting the books, which indicated quite a prosperous business. The cut of the mill is mostly hardwood and hemlock. The store is not only needed by the mill men,- but is quite a convenience to the farmers of the vicinity, who, by* the way,, are a thrifty and prosperous class, judged by the fine farms and buildings. LNo section of the state can show better crops this year than northern Isabella county. ** Clare ball players evidently are in hard luck—if you believe in luck.' At last week's ball game D. E. Alward was so severely injured that it will take him a long time to fully recover. Yesterday the first nine went to Far- well and two more men were hurt, so that the game was terminated before it fairly begun. In the opening of the game v_ ith Clare first to bat, Pratt hit the first ball pitched for a, home run. Mussell hit safe for a base. C. P. Louch popped up a fly and ran to first. The fly was caught and Mussell started back for first. Louch, Mussell and Honeywell, first baseman for Farwell, came in collision, just how, it would be hard to say. Louch received a blow on the head from Mussell's knee which, knocked him completely out for some minutes. Honeywell had a finger put out of joint, "while Mussell had a bruised; knee and one or more ribs fractured, though the latter fact .was not known until today. After half an hour the boys.resumed play but were so badly broken up 'by the accident that they played.a poor game. In the third innings, with Farwell at bat, a batted ball struck Mussell, pitcher, in the throat on the right jugular vein. Though he pibked up the ball, and walked over to the back stop, it, was seen, at once that he was badly hurt, being unable to breathe or swallow,, and Dr. Evans was summoned. Mussell was in great distress for some time, but was able to drive home with Louch in the evening. Although passing a hard night he is resting today and if no bad symptoms from internal throat swelling set in, will come around all right. Had there been no accidents, doubtless the game would have been a good one, as the 'Farwell nine was strengthened by the Harrison battery and two Saginaw men.
