Doherty went to Cleveland on | Ed. Crest, Elhoitt Shearer and AL Wednesday to visit with his brother and sister, Miss Minnie, for a few days. Mrs. Doherty and children have been in that city several days, enrouto homo after a couple of months' visit in New York state. Mr. Doherty expects to arrive in Clare, accompanied by his wife and children, about Saturday. The Lyceum Dramatic Company are billed to present "Only a Farmer's Daughter," a beautiful rustic drama in five acts, at Doherty opera house next Wednesday evening. The press of the cities speak very highly of the play and the company which presents it, and thero is reason to believe that it will prove very interesting. Xo doubt the opera house will lie crowded, as tho theatre-goers of thc city have not had opportunity to witness a performance in some time. Tickets on sale at the usual place. M. E. Avery, recently connected with Barrows' music house of Saginaw, has leased tho Stevens' House opposite tho union depot in this city, and is to assume management thereof next Monday morning. He will give his entire attention to the business and intends making the house a strictly first-class hotel, with rates at S1.50 per day. He has engaged the services of a professional hotel cook, and will furnish his tables with all tho delicacies of the season. Mr. Avery is a pleasant and agreeable sort of a fellow, and there's no reason why ho should not mako a good landlord and a success of the hotel business, Elmer Halstead, with his wife and family, arrived in Clare Wednesday from Silver City, Idaho. He was a Vernon township farmer until about live or six years ago, when the western fever seized him and he conceived a plan to immigrate, went to Idaho with his family and engaged to superintend a large fruit and stock ranch for his wife's brother. He seems to bo very well pleased with the country aud claims to have laid up quite a little money out of the venture. He says that his object in returning to Michigan is on account of his three children and the superior advantages afforded hero in regard to schools. He will undoubtedly take up his residence in this city for the winter, providing he can find a vacant house. Elmer owns an 80-acre farm, adjoining his brother's (George) place, about -P J miles northeast of the chy. His intentions now aro that ho will erect a fine house, a barn and other buildings thereon early next summer, and stock the farm with about 100 sheep as the first move. It is hoped that nothing will occur to deter him from carrying out these plans, as this country affords ample opportunity for settlers who have ideas of this kind. Randall, of Clare, and W. S. Lamb, oe Midland, started for the upper peninsula Monday, undor the employ of De- Vogt, tho photographer of this citj^ They will canvass that portion of the state during the coming winter, taking views of camps, mills, logging and mining scenes, etc. Tho work will be finished by Mr. Crest at Watersmeet. Thomas Dwyer came homo the first of tho week from Nelson, Ont., a statioa on the Algona branch of the Canada Pacific railroad, where he has been for the past three or four months superintending lumbering operations for the firm of P. D. Patterson *& Co. Mr. Dwyer has beeu quite ill since his return and is still confined to his bed- 'Tis hoped that he will be able to be out again in a few days, however. Seward Welch, who has been sick with typhoid fever for tho past six or eight weeks at the home of his uncle on west 7th street, died last Sunday evening about 10 o'clock. Up to the trine of his illness he was in the employ of the F. & P. M. railroad company as brakeman on the passenger train "between Coleman and Mt. Pleasant. He was a quiet, exemplary young man. about twenty-eight years of age, well- liked and spoken of very highly by those who knew him. Deceased leaves- a widow to mourn his loss. Th& remains were taken to Mt. Pleasant on Tuesday and interred in the cemetery at that place. L. J. Calkins, whom nearly every on&" in this section of the state knows as " Lee," visited with friends at Clare and Harrison two or three days this week, returning home this morning. He was the guest of his brother at the Calkins yesterday. Lee did the most extensive mercantile business over done in Clare county at Harrison during her palmy days for a period of six or eight years, and during that time succeeded in " salting " something like 825,000 or S30,000. During that time he purchased with a part of his money a fine farm in Gratiot county, located five miles south aud two miles east of St. Johns. About two years ago he closed out his business at Harrison and moved his family onto his farm. Lee is a hustler from. Way back. He aptly turned his attention from the mercantile business to the pursuitSiof a granger aud the bar- vest of his farm this fall goes to show that he will make this avocation prove equally profitable to the other. Ho has erected this summer one of tho finest bams to bo found in that county, 'besides several other; necessary buildings, all models Of their kind. He has a store at the cross-roads on one corner of his farm, carries a fine stock of, general merchandise and reaps a fine .revenue from this source.
