John Walton, an Isabella county farmer, has just;lost a spring chicken, which had completed its 16th year. The giddy thing was smothered in a haystack. Anew sidewalk, graces the street in front of P. D. Patterson & Co's office. So much for our new street commissioner. Let him continue in the good work. Horse-back riding ha§ become a popular pastime in Clare this spiring. A party of eight or ten, ladies and gentlemen, can be seen most every pleasant afternoon. Mr. A. Blevins, of Marion, visited with friends in Vernon over Sunday. He made this office a pleasant visit on Saturday, and reports every thing progressing finely at his town. J. C. Rockafellow has been collecting mortgage statistics at Bay City for the past two weeks, and it will take him nearly another week to finish his labors in that county. He may return home for a short yisit next week. Hon. Giles Eoss, of Rogers Park, 111., arrived in Clare last Friday for a fortnight's visit with his many friends and acquaintances.in this vicinity. All are pleased to see the old gentleman looking so hale and hearty. He is the guest of his son,"Wm.Ross.. A report is current which, if true, will proye the old adage "'Tis better to her" born lucky than rich," and make each member of the Wilson family, in Vernon township, more than a millionaire. 'Tis said that a distant relative of their's has just died in Scotland leaving an estate valued at $12,000,000, and that they are the only heirs. There are eight of them here, however, and each of them are anxiously awaiting the out come ^of the matter. The time has come for cleaning up back yards, alleys and other places where rubbish and all kinds of disease-breeding refuse accumulates during winter months. The health officer should go actively to work, but the citizens should not wait for such action. It is a matter in which each individual should be interested. If eyery householder in the city would see to it that his premises were put in a cleanly condition at once it would go far towards insuring the health of the place. The winter has been an unusually mild and open one. Ip consequence the accumulations of rubbish are larger than usual and the conditions favorable4 for epidemics. Clean up without delay.

The Democrat-Press job rooms have just turned out 200 pamphlets of rules, regulations and table of rates for the hoard of water commissioners of the village of Clare. Any tax-payer or water-renter can obtain a copy free by calling at the office of the secretary, A. J. Doherty. Arthur Rockafellow and Thomas Holbrook attended Masonic lodge at Farwell Tuesday evening. They drove up and lef t their horse in One of the hotel barns. While at lodge someone took their horse out of the barn and gave it a very hard drive, leaying him tired out and wet with sweat, and in a poor condition for the drive home. It was a contemptible trick.

Chamberlain is grading the lot in front of his residence on East 5th street and getting ready to build a new fence. The premises will present a very attractive appearance when improvements are completed. It was a genuine surprise party, and was perpetrated On Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Todd last Friday evening by a crowd of about 35 or 40 of their most intimate friends. That everybody had a. good time, 'tis needless to remark. Prospects are that there will be a decrease in the number of saloons in Clare during the . current year, commencing May 1st, There were seven last year, and the indications thafc there will-be but four, perhaps five, for next year. Douglas Meeks received the second and H. A. Holmes the third degree in the order of .Knights of Pythias at the regular meeting on Wednesday evening; Clare lodge has more work on hand at present than it can conveniently attend to. S. J. DeFoe has just opened up a new stock of groceries, being located in the same building in which he was located before he sold out. He.keeps a fine line of cigars, as several of the "boys" will testify—and he is not, stingy with them > either. ■/'■■. " ' :. ...... rison, accompanied by.FranlT Sarpefv^! AND STILL WE BOOM! Glare, A Daily Paper to be Published At Commencing Next Monday. J^ext Monday there will be issued from this office the first number of the Clare Daily Advertiser—an eight-page, 4-coi- umn paper. We do not say that it is to be a permanent fixture in our enterprising village.;. It is merely an experiment! Our advertising has been guaranteed for thirty days and we will publish the paper every afternoon, Sunday excluded, for the time stated, If at the expiration of that time if our merchants are satisfied with the venture, believing they have reaped ample returns for their money invested, and we succeed in pleasing our patrons we may continue its publication. We are not building air-castles, nor do we intend to publish a paper to compete with metropolitan dalies. Our aim will be to publish a good, wide-awake little local paper, and to- chronicle the local happenings of this village, the neighboring towns and adjacent country. The price will be nominal and we beg the cooperation of our merchants and the reading, publie. Watch for .the Advertiser and giye it the support of which it may be entitled, Arthur H. Rockafellow^ who is well-known in Clare and 'throughout the county, will be its* local editor and general manager. .s., y. » t—38— DECORATION DAY.

At a meeting of the <State Board of Health at Lansing last week it was decided to notify these officers that measles is a disease dangerous to the public health, and as such comes under the law requiring health officers to take precautions. It is the judgment of the board that, health officers should placard premises where cases of measles exist and disinfect the premises after death or recovery, as in other diseases dangerous to the public ■health.

All who have experience in oil lamps must sooner or later learn that the condition demanded for their burning- without smell, is, that the wick shall be turned so as to obtain a full sized flame without actual smoking. It is commonly supposed that at first by keeping the flame low all objectionable odor is prevented, but the contrary is the case. It is not work that kills, but worry It is not the revolution that destroys the machinery, but friction. Work is good for the soul, gpod for the body and good for the mind. If you want a good appeT tite don't worry. Ifyou want to stand well with yourself and .the world, and want things to go right in your business, do not worry. If you want to size up 100 cents on the dollar, do not worry. Qrarterly meeting services will commence at the F, M. church on Friday evening and continue oyer the Sabbath.

Chapin, of Winterfield township, writes the Democrat-Press under date of April 19th, and says:, uIn your report of the political complexion of the new board of supervisors of Clare county, I see you locate me as a democrat. This is an error; the fact being that I haye cast a prohibition ballot at every general election since I have been a resident of \ this state, and I do not see any reason, as yet, for changing my views. I write you this to put you straight, for I do not believe you wish to embezzle the prohibition party, or any part of it." Yours truly, Mr. Chapin; we gladly acknowledge the corn, and hasten to place you in proper light before our readers and into the ranks from which ypu were unwittingly confiscated by our scribe. Politically, the new board of supervisors will number seven republicans, four democrats and one prohibitionist. M.'Siebert, Dover,. E. Halstead, Oreana, Idaho, 1 50 **■**» ;c-ek Wm.

Chinese peasants need about a dollar a. month for food, and an economical man or woman can get along a whole year with fiye dollars' worth of clothes. Home market is yielding a big crop! Thousands of mortgages are being foreclosed, and especially in the agricultural regions of the west and north west. Buy in the dearest and sell in the cheapest markets—that is the music, and the producer dances to it and pays the fiddler, Medical science has long sought for a sovereign remedy for the scourge of childhood, diphtheria, yet the colored people of Louisiana, and perhaps of other localities in the south, "have for years - known and used a cure which is remarkable for its simplicity. It is nothing more nor less than the juice of the pineapple. "The remedy is not mihe,"said a: gentleman when interviewed; been used by negroes in the "It has- swamps- *■' -B down south for years. One of my chil-, drcn was down with diptheria, and was-- in a critical condition. An old colored man who heard of the case asked if we had tried pineapple juice. We tried it and the child got well. I have known it tried in hundreds of cases. I have told my friends about it wheneyer I heard of a case, and never knew it to fail,. . You get a ripe pineapple, squeeze, out the juice and let the patient swalJow it. The juice is of so corrosive a nature that' it will cut out diphtheritic mucus, and if you will take the fruit before it \" 'y-^ and give the Juice to a person whofae throat is well it makes the mucus membranes of his throat sore. Among those who have tried the cure on my recommendation I may mention Francis J. Kennett, the board of trade man, whose children Avere all down with diphtheria and were cured by this remedy." '.
