Very Respectfully* "Lank*' Whitney Fonnd amity of Cendnctlna" it Disorderly Honso.--The Kelley nindatnui. The March tern* Circuit Court convened at the county seat on Monday with eighteen cases upon tho calendar, consisting of six Criminal cases, eight 'issues (rf fact and four chancery cases, Por tho first time iu years tho full panel of jurors appeared, and no requests to bo exeused-were made. The panel is an exceptionally good one, being mado up of representative men of the county. The first case, being that of the People vs. Knapp, for violation of tho liquor law, the defendant eflttjred a plea of guilty and was fined $50. The second case tried was that "of the People vs. Geo. Hawley, who with ono •Tames Codd. was charged with breaking into the American Express office in Harrison on tho night of January 22d. Codd plead guilty and appeared as a witness against Hawley. The evidence was conclusive, though the defendant attempted to show his innocence. The jury were out only ten minutes and found a verdict of guilty. Sentence has not yet been passed. The case against M. E. Whitney, of this city, eharged with keeping a house of ill-fame, drew the attendance of a large crowd, as such cases usually does. The prosecuting attornoy called in ~W. A. Burritt to assist him, aad the case was vigorously prosecuted. The defendant was ably represented by G 3. Cummins, who made no defense save upon several questions of law. The evidence was conclusive of Whitney's guilt, though it took the jury five hours to find a verdict. Mr. Cummins still contends that his ideas of the law bearing on the question of the legality of the papers is correct, and has asked and been granted a stay for forty days to allow him to take the case to the Supreme Court, provided Whitney files a bond for S1,C00 with two sureties. Should he fail to file the bond lie will be sentenced at next term. Following this trial came the civil case of Lyman Williams vs, W. H, Wilson efc al., which occupies the courts attention at this time, In the mandamus proceedings brought by Lizzie Kelley against tho mayor, olerk and treasurer of this ciby to compel the immediate payment of the judgment secured by her at the January term of court, Judge Dodds held that her only remedy was laid down in law f.nd that was to force the spreading of a special tax next fall for that purpose; that no funds now on hand and needed for other purposes could be used to satisfy tbe judgment. The closing chapter of the Wickham claim 3 ^aiiist- the county has been reached and a greater portion of the people of the cOuuty will be satisfied with its outcome*, from the fact that, it has been found to be a legal claim. Judge Dodds has ordered the board of supervisors to allow the claim at §50 at their next session. At this writing no disposition has been made in the Kirvan cases, except that the prosecutor lias withdrawn one of them, that of the complaint of the oldest girl, lu the remaining case a strong effort is being made by the defence to have the same continued oyer the term to allow more time to jirepare for trial... and possibly a change of venue may be asked. Prosecutor Quinn nns asked for the appointment of V,'. A. Burnt to assist him in the~ease. G. J. Onmmins and O. W. Perry represent the dofonco, The charge of larceny against Cornelius Baluss, of Temple, will be tried next term. Latee.—Judge Dodds today sentenced Geo. Hawley to eighteen months at Jackson and James Codd to six months at the Ionia reformatory. Deputy Sheriff Per- vorse escorted Hawley to Jaokson today. The oldest Kiryan girl gave birth to a child last night. Judge Dodds has ordered a change of venue in tlie case against Kirvan, and it will be triod afc Midland April 13th. . Lyman Williams received a verdict against Wilson et al for ,'5-i08, with interest. In the case of Johnson vs. Wilson, tho plaintiff submitted to a non-suit. Court adjourned this afternoon after accomplishing a large amount of work for tho limited time. [Edited by E. D. Palmer, county cbm- mmsioner of sohoole.

Within a week, perhaps, the Governor of Michigan will issue a proclamation, desigiyatftigft day to be" set aside' as Arbor Day for this year, to be observed by those who have sufficient interest in tho future welfare of the state, of their own community and of their children to plant a few trees and shrubs. Arbor Day is not an old institution, but has come to bo universally recognized through tho northern states as one of the most valuable of our holidays True, it is n'ofc often a day of excitement. It does not even bring many people together in a crowd. It is not a day of words but of work. It is not an occasion for display and fireworks and artificial patriotism, thpugh its deeds are truly patriotic, for every man or woman or child who loves community and country well enough to bequeath to thom the blessing of fruit and shade is a patridt. In traveling about through tho county the commissioner has had ample opportunity to judge tho amount of patriotism and local pride of the various school districts, as measured by tho school buildings and their surroundings. Somo of the school premises are models of neatness, while others are disgracefully neglected. It is a remarkable fact, that the appearanee of school buildings and sohool grounds Mvo a direct and positive influence on tho teacher and pupils of the district. It is a physical impossibility for first-olass school work to be done in the miijsfc of bad surroundings. While a neat school.house and tidy grounds do not compel a boy to learn it does effect his conduct and thafc is a long step in the direction of an education. Where is the boy that will not con'ducfc himself with more care in a parlor than in a barn. There seems to be a move on foot nearly all ovor Olaro county among school officers and school teachers to improve tho school surroundings this spring. Here and there grounds aro to bo stumped or graded, in some case.s neat fences are to be built, and nearly everywhere trees are to be set out. Last week there was published in all the county papers an. offer from fche Agricultural College of a package of selected flower seeds to be seiifctu the first ion schools of che county whose teachers should apply for the seeds. Wo have already heard of several schools thafc havo sent, whether *he quota of ten has been filled we do not know, but are sure that it will be. Is your school one of the fortunate ten? Mr. Director, do you think tho premises abeut your school need improving? What are you going to do about it? If need not cost much tc put the grounds in good shape. A "bee" will do it with tho right man to do tho hustling, The boys and girls will delight to help. As fcn T.lni,t.in-rr trees evi__.v_ -farmer knows what kind is best suited to his soil, and how to set them. Teachers, if your school officers do .not move in this matter, move them. Ifc you can not do that get one or two neighbors interested, or oven go ahead with the assistance of your pupils. Use Arbor Day as fche time, or not, at your convenience. Ifc is better not to scatter the trees aboufc the school yard. Give the children room to play. A row of trees along the sunny side of the yard is good, or a wind-break on the north and west, but best of all are clusters of trees at proper points, Trees in a cluster protect ono another, both from sun and wind, their greatest one- mies, and when grown have a more pleasing effect than in stiff rows. When the summer sun grows hot protect the bodies of the trees by shading them. As the spring and summer advances the Commissioner intends to report in this column the schools making improvements in thoir surroundings. The five schools making most improvements by fall will receive especial mention, and tho school officers and teachers who contribute to that ord will receive clue credit. Tho estimate of improvement will be made on the basis oi this soason's improvements, so that the bn/_k school t t ¥ ¥ t ¥ t ¥ We carry a large line of ingrains of the celebrated "Bloomburg Mills" make, unexcelled for style and wearing qualities.

It is a perfect remedy for coughs, colds, hoarseness It is an especial favorite for children^ being pleasant to take and qfuiok in curing. »_____ IN THE SICK ROOM. Give the room which has the best means of ventilation and the most sunshine to the invalid. Have dark-green Holland shades at the windows. Green tempers the glare of th« sun in a way very soothing to tired eyes. Have a big screen in the room which may be used either to shut out the bright light when the patient wishes to sleep or to keep off draughts when the windows are raised and lowered. Change the bed linen as often as possible. Once a day is not too often. In making the bed be sure that the under sheet is stretched as tight and smooth as a drum cover. Wrinkles in the under sheet cause continual discomfort and sometimes sores. Keep the medicine bottles, glasses and spoons out of sight of the patient. Every sickroom should. __ be. provided with a small bottle cabinet where medicines may be kept If this is out of the question a couple of swinging shelves curtained in silk may be used. Banish creaking chairs from the sick' room. Nothing so grates upon the patient's nerves and so irritates him as unnecessary harsh sounds. Don't whisper outside the door. That is intensely aggravating to him, and conversations with the doctor may be just as well carried on outside the invalid's hearing. Do not ask the patient what he wants to eat, Ask the doctor what he should eat, prepare it daintily and in small quantities and serve it.to him, ar^ rayed as temptingly as possible. Cover the tray with a spotless linen cloth, use the prettiest china and the brightest silver and glass, and adorn the tray with a flower or two. Daintiness is a great appetizer. Follow the doctor's instruction religiously about .the number of Visitors to be allowed in the sickroom. Keep out doleful and reminiscent persons, who can always remember a similar case which ended fatally. Repeat only cheerful gossip, and never allow the conversation to be either exciting or depressing. * FOR BOOKWORMS.

Barere, the notorious member of the committee of public safety who was called by Macauley the greatest lia?, debauchee, coward and brute that eves* lived.

It is said that in Stevenson's last anfl uncompleted novel," Weir .of Hermis- ton," which is to appear in the new journal, Cosmopolis, "he has devoted more space and care to his women characters than was his usual custom. W. Roberts says that of the 1,300 books printed before the beginning of the sixteenth century "not more than 300 are of ajiy importance to the book collector"; of the 50,000 published in. the seventeenth century "not mor6- than, perhaps, fifty are now held ia. estimation"; and of the 80,000 published in the eighteenth century "not. more than 300 are considered worth reprinting and not more than 500 ana- sought after."
