None came up and some are planting beans on their corn ground. There are about 100 men working on the new railroad near Salt River, and work on the entire line between there and Alma is being pushed-as rapidly as possible. Not that he needs watching, but because in their intercourse with him they have always found him affable and kind, the town treasurers have presented county treasurer Preston with a watch—certainly a very tim iy gift. h of the missi ng girl. She was brought to shore, the body being still warm and limber. It was thought by some that had the proper restoratives been applied she might have been brought to life; but through the fear of the law ancl want of experienced hands she was undoubtedly allowed to die. Justice Wellman was notified who summoned a jury composed of the following gentlemen : Seth Stilson. Mr. Braisington and son' Mr. Robi- son, and the Freeman brothers, who called Dr. Fordyee of Gilmore and Dr. Evans of Farwell, who made an •evternal examination but found no marks or signs of violence. The jury sought for evidence upon which to base their decision, but nothing except illhealth and despondency at times. Their verdict was thai she came to his death by her own hands. She leaves an aged father and mother- four sisters and two brothers to mourn-, her death. She was 21 years old, a girl of excellent reputation, and was- respected and loved by all who knew her.

Milton R. Schilling died on Friday evening last, having been sick three weeks of typhoid fever. Deceased was 25 years old, unmarried, but he leaves a large circle of mourning relatives and friends. He waa a son of Henry Schilling. A brother, Jourdon, and three sisters, Mrs. J. R. Rogers, Mrs. Rhodes and Mrs. C. Scoonover, reside in Clare. The funeral sevices were conducted Sunday afternoon at the Congregational church, Rey. Rev. A. J. Van Camp officiating. The church was crowded, J they believed in its truth. jj%church, Wm. McEwan of Bay City- con tributing $110 toward the purchase price. The society appreciate this munificent gift ancl are profoundly grateful to Mr. McEwan. A story started in fun Wednesday to the effect that the Common Council had reduced the wages of laborers to $1 per day, was believed by many ancl its circulation aroused considerable indignation among the people. There is no truth whatever in the report. Those who repeated it were entirely innocent in the matter, as county board of examiners of Isabella are taking.an active part in the interest of "The Normal Course for Teacher?," to be held in Mt. Pleasant during August. The idea that any person can teach school is becoming obsolete. Channing says that "To educate a child perfectly requires pro- founder thought and greater wisdom than to govern a state." We ciip the following from IheMt. Pleasant Tribune: Captain Allen of Ypsilanti, Indian agent, visited Isabella county reservation last week for the purpose of distributing pat~ enfs ank making proper allotments to those entitled thereto. A stric\ compliance with the law characterizes' Capt. Allen's actions, and in this respect the examination of applicants was more stringent than ever before held here. Several dusky maidens had to call the services of a minister into requisition and go through the marriage ceremony with those they loved "not wisely" etc., before allotments of land were granted them.— Among this number was Miss Eliza Nah-gah-se-gay who applied for an allotment of land. As Miss Nah-gah- se-gay had lived with Samuel Davis as the apple of his eye, although having no legal right to use his name, her application was refused, until she ancl Davis were pronounced man and wife by Elder Taft. Then the heart of Eliza was made glad by a government allotment of land. There were 29 quarters allotted—4 in Isabella township, 7 in Denver, 8 in Wise, 2 in Union, 2 in Deerfield ancl 6 in Not- tawa. In addition to this 45 patents were granted. N^ A Gilmore correspondent writing to the N. W. Tribune has this to say of manufacture of shingles On a more extensive scale than heretofore. The cold weather of Sunday gave people in this section quile a scare but the expected frost did not come. At Traverse City snow fell and there was a heavy frost which did great- damage to growing crops. Twelve votes were cast at the recent special election held in Farwell and as J. L.Littlefield received every vote cast he was not compelled to draw cuts and his seat in the village parliament will not be contested. A county Sunday school union was organized at Harrison last week with ,^Rev. Royal Cole President, H. H. Bogue, R. B. Gay and Mr. Budd, Vice Presidents, Mrs. A. H. Hudson Secretary, N. W. Perkins Corresponding Secretary, and A. B. Toman Treasurer. The Gratiot county Journal must have great faith in the purifying properties of water. It says: "Meredith, Clare county, the home of the notorious Jim Carr, has purchased a hand engine, hose cart, and 1,000 feet of hose. The thing to do now is to turn the hose on Carr." Dr. Queen of Harrison has invented a most shocking contrivance by which he hopes to revolutionize the art of butter manufacture. He proposes to conduct a current of electricity through the cream in a churn and thus relieve small boys and tired women from working the dasher. Brilliant idea! Nelson Carrow of Sheridan informs The Pbess that in a very simple way he has rid his farm of that very tioublesome weed, the Canada thistle, and he wants his fellow farmers the tragic death of Angie Hodgins: > to have the benefit of his experience _ - . .... ^ ■?*-. -t-1-.nA i-.n«4.1'ri»lA.. ' i"v.« ~ L_l_ ^_r The neighborhood in the vicinity of Bob Bobbins' mill was thrown into a terrible state of excitement on last Tuesday morning caused by the disappearance of Miss Angelina Hodgins 'of Vernon, who was working for John Ford in his lumber camp as assistant cook. In the morning she was missed and her bed found undisturbed, and shortly afterwards Chas. Allen noticed something floating on the water just beyond. Upon examination it was found to be the body in that particular. ' On a patch of fully half an acre he had tried various plans to kill out the thistle but without success until three years ago when, just before they blossomed, he covere.d the thistles with dry straw. This worked well, and being repeated the two succeeding years every thistle has been killed. Mr. Carrow says that he will pay $5 for every thistle that can now he found on the patch. The experiment is certainly worth trying.
