A recital by Miss Wait's music class and isong service will be held at tho Congregation^ church on Friday evening, Nov. 20. A small admission fee will be charged which will go into the church funas. The Democrats have no reason to be ashamed of their fight in Clare county, tho county ticket was a clean, honest one and an honorable fight was made. It is no disgrace to bo defeated,—but mighty inconvenient once in a while. Yernon township polled 312 votes of which 182 votes were for McKialey and 180 for Bryan. Isabella county cast 4,963 votes, a majority of 23(1 for Bryan. The silver county ticket was entirely elected except probate judge, by majorities ranging from 200 to 400. Now that the battle is over the ladies -will again discuss the latest fashions over tho back fence and the lords should begin to do something for tho advancement of the city's welfare.

He informed The Ooukibb that owing to a rush of business and other reasons he should go out of tho postago stamp business early next spring. The most phenomenal run ever recorded in the political annals of Michigan was that made by Harry IT. Ohipraan, silver candidate for sheriff of "Wayn county who was elected by 0,000 plurality, overcoming a Bepublican plurality of 10,000 for the balance of the ticket. "Doherty's excursion" via MarkHanna and the F. & P. M. brought to Olare on Monday evening a big crowd of people, and the Republican campaign was closed with yells, tin horn blasts, fireworks and enthusiasm galore. The demonstration was well handled and a credit to the party. The speeches by W. A. Norton, of St. Johns, Ex-Judge Hart, Prank Dodds, of Mt. Pleasant, D. E. Alward and others were well attended, All of you fellows that want the post- office hold up your hands: Hpw many of yon know anything about tho business? ■^ both gave Ping; your I suppose you" Isyal support? ; My dear sir* Ping, supporters wont make good postmasters. ' Get off the track, the Mt. Pleasant Democrat for the gallant and successful Sghfc he and his loyal supporters put up in Isabella county. Two years ago that county gave a Eepublioan majority of 1,000 and to turn this over required tho powerf nl and united efforts of tho old party workers besides hundreds of the rank and file who gave their time and sympathies to tho cause. On Wednesday that loyal Bepublican supporter of the silver cause, Geo. W. Graham, of Farwell, wrote The Ooubiee as follows: '"It looks now as if we were defeated. If so, I go down with colors flying and am ready to renew the fight, and begin as soon as I find what the ro- su'lfe really is." This s the throb of patriotism that stirs the heart today of every true believer in the cause of the masses as against the classes, and it is these patriots that will ultimately wear the crown of victory for honest money and America for Americans. The boat service ever-had for receiving returns in this oity were given oh election night. Western Dnion^ wire placed in Doherty opera house and Duncan's hall and expert operators wero on hand to take tho returns until four ocloek "Wednesday morning. The crowd at tho opera house was a large and good nntur- ed one, the silver men taking their medicine with good grace, Their spirits were somewhat renewed about 1 o'clock whon it was positively announced that Mississippi had gone for silver and that Texas was conceded. The !Ladie3 Union served lunoh n an .adjoinin,g room and wero well patronized. Stood Work SPSSSSJI And a good fit is my motto. RptrkfliHnf" and cleaning done..

Kelly of Farwell and John H. Eiohmond, of Summorfield, meet at the court house next Tuesday to determine the result of election. This is an improvement over the former method, when one man was sent from each voting precinct, and tho saying of expense is no small item. Th6 Munising News in its issue' last week calls attention to laxity in the state's way of doing business in the issue of licenses for hunting deorit says: "How much Michigan will gain by taxing foreign deer hunters is a matter which will depend entirely upon the individual honesty of county clerks. There are two lands of licenses issued to" deer hunters by county clerks—resident and non-resident. For resident hunters 'the license fee is 50 cents and for lion residents of the state it is 5p25. But for both .kinds only one form of blank is provided. This one form is furnished county clerks in any quantity desired or required. The clerks are not required to account for unused forms. There is nothing under, the sun except conscience to prevent a elelrk from filling out a non-resident license, charging $25 therefor, and return- -iug 50 cents to thtS state, as fee for , resident license1," H. T. Nbwlin has beon appointed postmaster at Clarence, vice Fred Church, resigned. Potliura and Hia Blue Coat. When Sir John Millais was a student p,t the Royal Academy he rejoiced in the friendship of a fellow student- by the name of Potherd. Potherd, among .other eccentricities, affected a long blue cloak with a catskin collar, which he wore on all occasions. Millais was still struggling with his charcoal when "Boy Blue" left the-.academy and set up as a full-fledged artist, and the Mends thus becarae separated. Millais had achieved fame and painted soma world-renowned pictures before he met his old friend again. "Walking down the streets of Camden Town one dayr (Sir John saw a figure in a. long blue cloak, trudging along "before him. "Sura- ty," said Millais, "I knott that cloabj. It must he Potherd." Quickening his step, he called oat: "Hallo! Potherd. how are you?" "And who may you be?" said "Boy Blue." "I am Millais;, don't you remember mef "Not little Johnny Millais, surely?" said the shabby Ptrtherd, surveying the well- groomed Sir John.
