Sheriff'Graham served another attachment on the Zemon &Sable stock yesterday. The stock will be moved into the Cooley building to-day in order to get some insurance on the goods. Positively, everything must be sold Jan. 29th at Sterns' livery barn. Horses, buggies, cutters, harnesses, robes, etc. Improve this opportunity to get something you need at your own price. It looks vory much as if Green's paper was attempting to onxnufacture a sentiment that will aid the gang of robbers and murderers that infest this county, in getting clear in case ar- rests are made.

It is expected that other attachments will follow. A spark from the stove set fire to the carpet in E. H. DeVogt's photograph gallery last'Sunday and'when discovered the fire'had burned a large hole in the carpet and the floor was coaled over. A little water promptly applied prevented what a few minutes later would doubtless have proved a disastrous fire. The indebtednessof Zemon & Sable to the Greenville firm afc tho time the $2300 chattel mortgage was given was nearly §1500 instead of $700 as stated in those columns last week. This doos not establish however tho good sense of the Clare firm in giving the mortgage nor tho disinterest- the Council-to "set 'em up" to the crowd, which order he promptly and good-naturedly obeyed. Jim Row's team became frightened at a passing train Tuesday morning and started from Boom's mill yard for home at a break-neck speed. Jim kept hold of the reins as long as he could but a collision with a stump landed him on his head and the horses went on their way rejoicing. No damage except to Jim's breeches which will need considerable mending before they are fir, for service. Mt. Pleasant Tribune; On Wednesday two children named McConnell from Vernon township and a friendless Italian boy from Coldwater township, were sent to the State Public School at Coldwater.

A newspaper, to be first class, must receive first clans support, says an exchange. First class support consists in every subscriber promptly paying his subscription, patronizing the job departments instead of giving work to nondescript and foreign offices and in every way giving tho paper your moral help. Taking and reading it and never paying for it will never do. Mora I support of itself was novor known to run a newspaper; moral support cannot be utilized, when ink and paper bills are to be paid. through with on skates. Jolly utime for everybody. Rov. "W. N.

An oleomargarine agent was in town last week and we havo learned from a reliable source that he sold a bill of his bogus butter to two of our merchants. This combination of tallow, lard and coloring matter is put | up in neat rolls, costs but little and is hard to detect. It's a greasy fraud all tho same and we hope that none of The Pkess readers will be cheated. At the recent adjourned session of tho Claro circuit court Judge Hart ordorod that a Grand Jury be summoned to appear at the February term of court to hear cases of importance which may then^be presented to if. The cases to come beforo the Grand Jury are unusual ones and ib was because of the idea that justice would be better secured by a secret Several i preliminary investigation than by Harrison j tbe usual method, that the order for j a Grand Jury was given.

The anticipators of an "open winter" have been rudely shocked for the third timo by the polar waves of last week. One thing will be said of tbe present winter at least, and that is that for extremes of fair and cold weather it has had no parallel for many years. Three times in the first half of the season has the mercurial guage sank from twenty-five to forty degrees below zero, to be followed in its turn by rains and mud.
