On Tuesday the Toledo, Ann Arbor & North Michigan passenger train, bound north, due at Clare at 12:18 p. m., met with a serious accident at Cope's Siding, a few miles south of Marion. The cause is attributed to a broken flange on one of the drive wheels of the engine, allowing the locomotive to leave the track. The engine broke loose from the tender and dashed into a pile of logs, where it turned completely over upon its back. The tender turned crosswise of tho track and slackened somewhat the speed of the coaches. Every car was derailed and thrown upon its side. About 150 feet of track was torn up and tho scene presented a woeful appearance. The train was somewhat late on the trip and the wreck occurred about 3 o'clock. The fireman and engineer stuck to their posts and were in the cab when she tipped over. Both were very badly bruised, jammed and burned by escaping steam. The engineer had one of his knee caps split sompletoly in two. No other bones were broken. Expressman Curtiss, formerly messenger on the branch between Clare and Meredith, was also in the wreck and received severe injuries. The train was quite heavily loaded with passengers, none of whom were badly hurt, though all were severely shaken up. The passenger train from tho north was due a few minutes later. It ran to the scene of the wreck, took the injured on board and conveyed them to Marion where they received medical attendance. It took about six or seven hours to clear the debris so that traffic could be resumed. ORANGE DAY. Appropriately Observed in this; City by Between 3,000- and 3,500 People. IT WAS A GALA DAY HERE. Over 1,000 Men in Line in the Pro-, cession—The Day was Well Enjoyed by Everybody. The Battle of Boyne was celebrated' here in royal stylo last Monday. The storm of Sunday night had cooled the air, and while it was warm enough, yet. there was no sweltering with the heat as is often the case on occasions of this, kind, It is putting it at a mild figure to say that there was between 3,000 and 3,500 people here, and altogether it was a grand success; one indeed that the Orange Lodge of this city may well feel proud of. Everything possible in the way of adding comfort and amusement to the visitors was done, and many words of thanks was heard on all sides, The visitors arrived on the different roads about 0 o'clock aud were met at the depot by both Lodges of this city headed by the Clare K. of P. band*, where they all formed and marched back to their several headquarters, after which they were shown around the town and made to feel at home an much as possible. After dinner they again formed in line and marched to Fick's grove where some splendid addresses were delivered by Rev. Smith, of Harrison, and others. After the speaking was over with the visitors amused themselves watching the different games, walking around the city, or partaking in the festivities- ofthe bowerys. About 7 p. m. the- trains commenced to tako them to their different destinations and by 10 o'clock they had all departed, well pleased with themselves and ready to bwoar that Clare people know how to handle <_UwHg«M^t«_4«K,tlMi^ c9t^'ta__ja_i_--!tCK > - '"-"« 'to fcafco parkin _*^lebtw'H^.^,i>»^-t_*«!?t,';-->'. Tho hose race in tho afternoon between Evart and Clare was as exciting a ono as has ever been seen iu this city. By the watch Clare lrvl th'- laeo won by i1., seconds, but as the Evart people aro quite good talkers they got around the j\idges and prevailed upon those gentlemen to call it a draw, >o that they would have money enough to take them home with. The game of baseball to be played between Clare aud Midland was postponed on account of a small shower of rain coming down at the time the umpire was getting ready to call "play ball." Taking everything altogether it was one of the most successful celebrations ever held in this city. Five bowerys done their share to help the people, especially the younger ones, to put in the day and evening. The most familiar cries heard on the- streets were " Dinner this way, only 25- cents," "One more couple this way." The new hotel opened its doors to the people on this day by having an elegant dinner served in the back part, and a bowery in the front part. "Twas truly a great opening. Many words of praise was heard on the tasteful manner in which the business firms had their places of business decorated. Clare hose boys say thoy will givo the championship to the Evarts on kicking, but that they will never be able to win it on the merits of their running. Although it was as large a crowd as was ever in Clare at one time, yet there were accommodations for all, as everything that could be turned into an eating house was done so, and no one went away hungry. The day passed off very quietly, and for so large a crowd a more orderly one could not be found anywhere. PERSONALS. A. J. Doherty makes a very tree looking drum major. " Tip" Calkins acted as though he had been born in a hotel, the way he hustled, Bill Parrish and Mel Austin were not kept very busy. Crowd too quiet. The quartet from Mt. Pleasant were* as fine (in their way) as we ever had tho pleasure of hearing. Editor Menerey, of the Coleman Independent, came up to see the crowd. R. M. Mussell and John Giberson did not please the Clare hose company, but Evart thinks they are O, K. The Clare, boys swear by Dr. Todd. Charlie Bigley was all over and e-rery- where when the race was being run. The K. of P. bandreceived their share of the "praise. They deserve it, as they are as fine as the finest. Everybody says Clare L. S, L. O. L. is. O.K.
