The 305th Anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, Being Grandly Observed In Clare Tp« Day-Clare Is Royally Entertaining Her Hundreds of Visitors—Ithaca Beat Clare 15 to 8. Under tho auspices of the Tj. O. L." lodge of this place the several lodges in this vicinity nre today celebrating the 205th anniversary of the battle of the Boyne. The day is all l^afc eould bo ■wished for, being cooled by a refreshing breeze, and though the skies indicate rain, the day's pleasures, -will probably not be marred by showers, though, no fault could be found if it was. Escorted by Northey's popular martial band the lodge of this place met the several trains and escorted the visitors to their hall, when, on the arrival of tho 10:05 train from the west, the parade took place. Bands from Caikinsvillo and lioomis, dispensed inspiring music, t:nd the pa- rade brought forth many admiring remarks from onlookers. After tho "walk" wis concluded tho participants dispersed for dinner, which was served at tho several hotels and eating stands. . The Ball Game. The ball game at the park today was disastrous to the Glare tigers, It was, perhaps, up to the fifth inning, as pretty a game as has ever been witnessed upon the grounds, but fate had designed a defeat for tho Glare boys and they took it gracefully. They wont to pieces in the fifth and the visitors got the lead and kept it to the end. Ithaca put up a fine game and were a gentlemanly lot of players. The home team made eight errors that netl ed the visitors eight runs.

Telegrams were received in Farwell this morning to the effect that John Olark, who was marshal of that village foar years ago and absconded with $600 belonging to. the village, had been captured by Officer Breed in Hibbing, Minnesota, and is now on his waY.here., The money earh6"into his hands while in his official capacity ho collected the village taxes. Action oa his bond was commenced and a judgment now hangs over the heads of the bondsmen for §500, the amount of their liability on the bond. Mr. Glark was proprietor of the Farwell house, at the time he left. His wife has since been running a boarding house in Farwell. Officer Breed has the necessary requisition papers, and it is probable that Mr. Olark will be placed on. trial at the September term of court. Death of Peter Callam. Peter Gallaaa one of the oldest settlers of this locality and the man who "built the first business house in Clare died at his residence three miles soutii and one mile west of&erelast night. Mr Callam was a prominent figure in the early history of the city and a more extended notice of his life will appear in our next issue. Deceased was a brother of Mrs. Calkins, of the Calkins house. And There Was Chairs Flying Through the Air Saturday Night—Nobody Seriously Hurt. Saturday night just before tho breaking of the Sabbath morning, and after most, of the business houses had been closed, there occurred a fracas on Mc- Ewen street between Third and Fourth street, which resulted only in a few bruises to the participants. Somebody who had been ardionsly worshipping at the shrine of Bacchus, hit somebody else who was in the same condition, and in the space of a very few seconds there was ffgenc^afBlttggtogmatch. Qnemanpra--- cured a chair and sailed into the melee with the avowed intention, of crushing someone to the earth, but tho only serious damage done was to tho chair, which was smashed to pieces. Who started the row and what it was about is hard to tell as everyone who witnessed it tells a different story. It is presumed however that "Tanglefoot" was the cause of arousing the pugilistic propensities of the Bac- chusites. Tho row lasted only a few minutes. » All Right in Missaukee. Dennis E. Alward, of Glare, can safely rely up«B the support of Missaukee county in the next republican state convention if he decides to become a candidate for the otBae of auditor general.
