The name will be changed and will be hereafter known as "Cairns," named after the proprietor ot the mill, Cairns E. Smith, of Eyart. We hope the health officer will insist upon people cleaning up their premises immediately. Half the town is in a delicate state of health as the result of la grippe, and we cannot afford to take any chances through the laziness of people wno will not clean up unless compelled to do so. The board of directors of the Congregational church are negotiating with Rev. J. H. Hey wood, of Ithaca, to secure his services as pastor of their church in this village. W. H. Elden and C. H. Sutherland made a trip to Ithaca Tuesday on business connected with this matter but final arrangements haye not yet been perfected. Clare is badly in need of, and should have at an early date, a new union school building, This matter cannot be longer delayed, and steps should at once be taken toward its erection during the coming summer or following spring. So far this spring there has been three saloon bonds presented and approved by the common council. That of Oliver Beemer, with Fred Hickey and Alfred Louch as sureties; George B. Dawson, with Samuel Young and Isaiah Feighner as sureties; Waller & Sweetman, with. Daniel McKeiser and William Giberson I One of Uncle Sam's eagle-eyed em ployes swooped down on Postmaster Kirkbride last Saturday on a tour of inspection of that branch of the government department in this village. He expressed himself as being much pleased with the condition of the postoffice and the manner in which it is conducted. A couple of gentlemen from Caro, Tus cola county, were in town a couple of days this week looking oyer the surroundings with a view of moving their staye mill to this place. They were quite favorably impressed with the outlook ancl promised to return in a few days and make further investigations, when they would decide the matter of removal. The board of commissioners of the poor met in this village Tuesday. They were concluding negotiations with the village of Harrison for laying water pipes to connect and supply the count}' farm. About 80 rods of pipe will have to be laid. They attempted to dig-a well on the farm, but after going down 100 feet concluded to abandon the job and obtain their supply from the waterworks. An experiment made last summer with cows proyed that when a handful of salt or about two ounces of.it, was giyen every day, the yield of butter was increased one-fifth; and when the salt was withheld the yield fell off in the same proportion. The reason beyond question, is that the salt is required for j.f,iilj- digestion of the food, more .of the 'M<$ was changed to milk. Keep salt- witl*i|v reach of the-cows. . ;'";J -/""■• Some day,.there will be a terrible, acc&: dent at the railroad station afc! some family will be mourning th**/violent death of a boy. It will happen^just as sure as the sun rises and set*,^ unless parents take cognizance of the-fwst, and GLIMPSE OF AN JGE HOUSE. With Its Cost and Contents—inspection Of One Built at Harrison by the Cin- cindti foe Company. Among the numerous firms getting out ice in .aud around Harrison may be mentioned the Cincinati Ice Company, and a few figuies showing the amount of business clone by this company would not be out of place. This firm has built ancl filled two ice houses, besides buying several that have been filled by other parties, but it is of the larger house that was filled by this company tliat I wish to speak. From February 24 to April 12 they employed 166 men ancl 18 horses; there was 2,281 days' work performed, and the wages amounted to $3,62S.70; the average amount"for each man, including teams,, was $21.86; the average number of days for each man, 14; the average daily wages for each, $1.59. The house is divided, into six rooms or chambers, fiye of which are 120 feet long, 50 feet wide and 20 feet high, and. one 120 feet long, 4S fee(t wide and 20 feet high. The ground covered by this house is 1 acre 54 square rods. The walls are double with a space one^ foot wide filled with sawdust, of which it, took 1,666 cubic yards. The top of the ice is covered with straw, and seven carloads, or 74 tons, were used. The roofs are of boards, and contain 40,992 square feet. Between the roofs is a tin valley, or gutter, which contains 966 square feet. The lumber used in "the building was 250,000 feet, and it took 36 kegs of ''-nails to put ilp on. The ice, which is of superior quality, was hauled out of Budd lake up a,slide 150 Ieet long, by a 10 horse power engine and endless chain with hooks made-ejcpressly for that purposed Coal was used for the engine, which con- sumed 17, tp.n-. The water for the engine was forced through au inch tube by a -Buckeye force pump up a hill 40, feet- wgbV ; "The house is estimated to contain 10.- + * * 000'tons of ice,which will be shipped the coming season to Cincinnati via Flint ,&■• Pere Marquette Railroad. Wm-. Giberson is contemplating a trip to Tennessee and other parts of the south road, swarms orsmft the railroad station at the arrival of every train, jumping on and ofi the cars with that disregard of life and limb, which is characteristic. Mrs. Fred Holbrook, or better known as Mrs. Jno. Dunning, is somewhat in luck. A few years ago, just previous to his death, Mr. Dunning went northwest in search ot* a climate more congenial to his consumptive constitution, and while in Manitoba he purchased a tract of land near the village of Oak Lake. A railroad is now being built across the property and the company desire to purchase the fortjr. She has just received a letter offering her §1000 for her claim. The matter has been placed in the hands of an attorney. A terrible accident occurred some miles from Gladwin Monday afternoon. The boiler of Oseman's saw mill exploded completely wrecking the mill and killing H. M. Corey, the engineer, and his son, who was acting as fireman. The explosion was extremely violent and was heard four miles away and the whole ground over a large area of country was shaken as by an earthquake, Pieces of the boiler was thrown many rods. The men killed were badly mutilated. As they had charge of the boilers, it is of course impossible to learn the cause of the explosion, but it is suspected the water had become too low. The death of John Monroe Dsuten occurred in this village on Thursday, April 10,1890, at the home of his son, John Dusten, on Wheaton ave. Deceased was born in Ontario on the 29th day of July, 1811, and was nearly 79 years of age at the time of his death. About four years ago, together with his wife, they moved with their son to Michigan and settled in Clare, where they have since resided. Heart disease and dropsy are the attributed cause of his death. He leaves a widow, aged 65 years, to suryive him; also Mrs. Joshua Wager and Mrs. Edward Becker, his daughters, and John Dusten, his son, who reside in this village. The funeral occured Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock; services being con-\ ducted from the M. E. church by Rev. L- L. Tower. The remains were interred in Cherry Grove cemetery. The following amounts have been paid on subscription to the Democrat-Press since our last issue: John Clark, Clare, ..$1 50 Curtis Palmer, " 50 A. J. Clute, " 1 50 Daniel Crouse, " 1 50 A. Jennings, " 50 C. Babcock, Hatton, 1 50 E. W. Chapin, Marion, 1 00 C. Bogan, Calkinsville,. 1 00 The residents of Northern Mic&fgari ought to be happy people and they .have •much to be thankful for when tlieir condition is compared with that of their unfortunate brethren in other staces. It is a long time since we had a flood in Northern Michigan. Our' oldest" inhabitants do not remember any cyclones earthquakes or gas explosions. The col lisions on our railroads are confined, to log and freight trains; we never had a famine or had to appeal to neighboring districts for aid. Our people are fairly prosperous, and while we are not living in the land of "milk and honey," we are in a land of plenty, where every mart who is willing to work can make and savse money. A land that is noted for its pure spring water and healthy climate. Let those wh© contemplate moying to some new country, allured there by bright promises (on paper) held out to them, stop and think of what they are leaving, and they will say, as hundreds of others who haye gone away and returned say" Michigan is good enough for me." A Democrat-Press* scribe, in company with Y. F. Conlogue, of Mt. Pleasant, and Will Goodman, visited the threshing machine manufactory at Lansingville mi Wednesday. This industry, though now in its infancy, promises to be an important one at no distant day, and one which Northern Michigan will, at sometime, be proud of. The proprietors of the industry are Messrs. W, H. Bowen, of Lansingville, Y. F. Conlogue and F. D. Patterson, of Mt. Pleasant. The threshrag machine upon which the company are now at work, is the invention of Mr, Bowen, It possesses all the points of merit of any of the other thresher, beside, another very valuable invention for sep— erating the grain from the straw, possessed by no other machine manuf actured.— Mr, Bowen is very familiar with the workings of the threshing machine,, and ■ 'tis said that he has now succeeded in* getting the thing down to a fine point- - They expect to have two of the machines finished and ready for inspection by the first or middle of the" coming month, and- • will then push matters so as to have sev- - eral machines on the market for the fall 4 threshing business. They have now a*, large, two-story building, 30x80 feet?- erected near Bo wen's mill, and have considerable machinery up and in working order. They will soon build a large addition onto the west side to be used for a paint shop and store house. They are contemplating the erection of a foundry in the near future. There is no mistaking the fact that these gentlemen are confident of success and that they mean business. ' '
