We shall see. "Burt Sprague of Clare county" whoever he is, went over to Mt. Pleasant last week and succeeded in allowing a- import of our soiathern suburb to win an victory o¥er him in a wrestling contest for the championship of the two counties-^ Clare county repudiates Burt Sprague. Mt. Pleasant Tribune: The wrestling contest for the light-weight championship of Isabella and Clare csunties, on last Saturday evening, between Bobert Beakes, of Whiteville this county, and Burt Sprague, of Clare county, resui|ed in an easy victory for Mr. Beakes. r^e attendance was light. ^ Last Friday afternoon as Oal Brown was hauling logs across the F. & P. M. railroad crossing, a log train came along at a high rate of speed, and Mr. Brown seeing that he could not get his load off the track, unhitched his horses and let the train do what his team could not. The fireman on the engine jumped when he saw the danger, but the engineer being more brave, stuck to his post. The* engine was disabled and had to be sidetracked here to await another one which had been telegraphed for from Saginaw. Mr. Brown's sleigh was badly demolished and his logs strewn along the track.

A meeting will be held at Beed City Feb. 10 to organize a Korthern Michigan baseball league. Manistee, Ludington, Beed City, Evart and Greenville, have already signified their willingness to go into such an organization and why can not Clare,? She used to support one of the best clubs in Northern Michigan. The aiarni of fire sounded ahgj|t half past nine last Sunday night was caused By ft'the chimney in Bichard Welch's- house burning out. Ho damage was done. Mr. Squires informs us that the reason why the.^Mocking Bird" did not give her U3ual song at firstfas because she was frozen up. . It appears there is some trouble over the postoffice at Dover. It seems that the present p. m., A. B. Hains, has served Uncle-Sam for the past two years faithfully; that he voted for Grover Cleveland and that he does not see why he is net entitled to the position another year at least, j A petition has been ciiTdulated lamong the persons that get their mail at Dover and out of 180 over 80 want Mr. Hains another year; 15 remain neutral and the rest have either not been heard from or are in. favor of Uncle Sam's appointee, W. L. Lyons. Mr. Lyons will all in probability, take posession of the office, which by the way nets the munificent sum of |65 per annum, next week, regardless of the petition. That's What the ^Business Com" mittee" 'Propose to Dp. urn nr nfi About thirty-five of the business men of this village met at the Council room, last Friday evening to. organise a-Business Committee for the purpose of inducing manufactures Mid individuals to locate in and | around the, village of Clare. ^ / ^__ " "The meeting was called to order b^j C. AV. Perrv and E. D. Wheaton' elected chairman and Wm. Gib^rson secretary. '"';. Mr. Whe'aton then explained the. object-of the meeting, and pointing out whereby such a committee would be a benefit to the town and tnerebv being a benefit to every individual engaged in business in the town. In connection with this Mr. Wheaton said he had prepared a paper in which he had taken a true inventory of the business houses of. the village, and that he woukJ like to be allowed to read it.* The following is a copy: Clare, an incorporated village of 1,200 inhabitants, located near, the geographical center of the lower peninsula, at the probable junction ofthe F. & P. m. and T., A. A. & N. M. B. Li.7 50 miles from East Saginaw, 80 miles from Beed Citv and: lo mi ten from Mt.'Pleasant.

W. Peri's, Will Goodman, Jr., B. Trevidick, I. Feighner, E. D„ Wheat- on,M. D.Eaton and G.. W. Smith. The officers of the committee are: President—E. D. Wheaton. Vice President—G. W. Smith. Treasurer— H. Trevidick. Corresponding Sec'y—C. W. Perry. .Recording Sec'y—M. D. Eaton. A discussion then arose oyer the feasibility oi raising money for the committee to work with, such as buying stationary, etc. It was finally decided that' every person there, so inclined, should give a dollar to start the ball rolling. By so doing about $25 dollars was raised. Tnis committee, when it gets in proper running order, is supposed to keep posted on all industries desiring a good place to locate, and to keep on record the price and location of all the lands in and around Clare for sale, so that a stranger coming into town and desiring: a location, he can at a moment's notice be informed of all the saleable land within several miles of here. A plan was also talked of D37 which the town could be advertised to outsiders, and which was no more or less than to print on the back of all the envelopes used by the business men about towns a synopsis of the village of Clare in a condensed form. I'his will come up before the next meeting of the committee, which will be held at E. D. Wheaton?s office this evening.
