Angus Stanton lives in Mt Pleasant. At leasthedidatlasfcaccounts. His business is that of rejuvenating feather beds, constructing downy mattrasses and otherwise making it comfortable for mankind during the hours of repose. Angus came over to Clare and contracted to manufacture a few mattrasses from the most fluffy variety of wool and hair, and assured his patrons that upon the mattrasses of his make their troubles would vanish as a June fog, and all their sleeping hours would be hours of serenest peace. His patrons believed this because Angus hailed from Mt. Pleasant. He delivered the goods, received his pay and hastened to the --"Hub." Later investigations proved that a liberal portion of one particular mattrass was of a very ordinary variety of basswood shavings. The incensed customer repaired to Judge Maynard for a warrant, and on Monday of last week Angus was escorted before His Honor by the town marshal to answer to the charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. He assured the court that the gopd people of the "Hub" were 'greatly mortified at his arrest, and stood ready to defend him through all the courts of Michigan. Upon such representations the Judge turned him over to the officer, who trusted in his honesty, and told him, to go home and bade him appear today for trial. This morning court opened iu due form, with the public prosecutor present but up to the hour of going feo press Angus had failed to appear. The officers are sure that Angus has been .unavoidably detained by some pressing society engagement on Normal Avenue, atid will be here at his earliest convenience. suraini With Good Weather, Clare's Celebration oji ~" ^~"August".jf W.i« bH » Huijjnj-*r. v - - Continued reference to the firemen's celebration in this city op August 19, may be a little monotonous to- some, but The Coxjrier wants its readers to understand that the promoters of this celebration are in eame§t,. and propose to_make it eclipse all previous celebrations held in this city, and we have had some big ones. Bills have been issued this* week announcing a few of the numerous attractions already arranged for, and other advertising matter to be distributed later will give the program in detail. Among the features secured,, and at a heavy expense, is a series of sensational high Wire and trapese performances which will be given at stated periods during the day upon the streets where everybody can see them, and absolutely without cost. A ball game will be played at the park in* the afternoon, the Clare and Coleman teams having been engaged. Following the ball garqe will come the water fight, which will be conducted upon an entirely different plan than heretofore and will be both intensely amusing to the crowds and.a severe test of endurance for the participants. The program of athletic sports will be placed in the hands of experienced judges, and every contestant will receive exact justice. Plenty pf band music will be afforded during the day, and the program is sufficiently extensive as to admit of no waits between numbers. The exercises will begin promptly at ten o'clock, and with the exception of a short recess for dinner, will be continued until every advertised feature has been given. This is the only celebration that Clare will have this year, and the firemen hope that the citizens will join with them in making it one of enjoyment for every visitor. Many citizens have already offered to assist in the preparatory work, and. we have not the slightest doulbt but that everyone will assist in making it pleasant for tho large crowd which is sure to come.

Bush, who passed away yesterday afternoon at 3:10 o'clock,' died very suddenly and under very painful circumstances. She died from the most terrible convulsions, which had siezed her while she was alone in the house, although her husband, a physician, and others were with her when the end came. Mrs. Bush was up and out of the house less than an hour before her death. About 2 o'clock Chief of Police Bennie, who was passing, talked "with her for a moment, but he thought that she did not look to be ia the best of health-at that time, for she looked pale. Ho asked her if she was. ill, and she replied that her baok and the back of her head pained her. Still, the chief did not suspect anything serious., and left at once for police headquarters. An hour later Mrs. Bush was a corpse. After Mr. Bennie had • passed the house, the neighbqrs state that Mrs. Bush remained out of doors, watering her lawn and working in the little garden for about 20 minutes, when she went into the house -to change her clothes, as she said, giving the hose to little Pearl Gale. About 20 minutes after this Mr. Bush drove up to the house with Mrs. Land, who had come to visit Mrs. Bush, and found Mrs. Bush on the bed in terrible agony, and medical assistance was immediately secured. •* .When - the physician arrived he found Mrs. Bush in terrible agony. She was on the bed-'and was suffering from terrible convulsions. Her muscles would knot up, her head would be thrown back, and she would evidently suffer from the most intense pain, though her mind Beemed to be fairly clear. - Five minutes after the physician arrived Mra. Bush was dead. Asked by a Record representative this morning as to the cause of death, the attending physician stated that it wa3 convulsions.

Mr. Rennie was called to the house, but did not arrive until, after death had occurred. On his arrival he said: "I wonder if she has taken anything," ■ as he says the thought occurred to him that she might have taken some medicine to ease her pain, that might have made her ill. He did not know when he made 'the suggestion that Mrs. Bush was dead. When Mr. Bush reached home his wife recognized him and said, "Where's Russell? Poor, dear Russell." _>he referred to her son, who is employed at one of the factories. Twenty minutes before she had sent a little neighbor girl to the city for some goods whioh Mrs. Bush was going to make into a dress for the little girl. The little daughter of .Dr. H. J. Getman was the first who knew that she'was ill, being in the house when Mrs. Bush lay down on the bed. Mr. Bush stated to the Record this afternoon that.Mrs. Bush was subject to bad attacks, and that she had an attack somewhat similar to the One that caused her death, only about a week &go, - with a similar contractidn of tho muscles and a drawing back of tho head. Tho funeral will be held from Grange hall tomorrow afternoon at 3 -o'clock, under the direction of L. D. Curtis. ReV T. P. Ullom will have charge of the service. Besides her husband, Mrs. Bush leaves -a son Russell, 15 years of age, four sisters, Mrs. I_ida Crouse, of Clare, Mrs. Loririda Elliott and Mrs. Florence Ford, of Grand Rapids, and Mrs. Dodge of Detroit, two brothers, one of whom, Ray Hod- gins, lives in Grand Rapids. lirraiiji-i New Law in Michigan Will Soon Take Effect —Those WJid Moy Not Marry. A new law will go into effect in Michigan September 17 which limits the degree of consanguinity, within which marriages may take place by a clause including first cousins in the list.' The amended law in regard to marriages, which should be understood by every county clerk and person authorized to .solemnize marriages, is as follows: ''No man shall marry his mother, grandmother, daughter, granddaughter, stepmother, grandfather's wife* Son's wife, grandson's Wife, wife's mother, wife's grandmother, wife's daughter, wife's granddaughter, nor his sister, brother's daughter, sister's daughter, father's Sistor, or mother's sister, or cousin of the first degree. "Nowomjm. shallmarry her father, grandfather son, grandson, stepfather, grandmother's husband, daughter's \ husband, granddaugh ter's husband, husband's father, husband's grandfather husband •*_■ son, husband's grandson, nor her brother, brother's son, sister's son, father's brother, or cousin of the first degree. The Nashville News tells of a ' farmer near that villa°-e who out an ."ex" mark on* a. silver dollar and came to town and spent it with a merchant. Before the year was out he got the dollar back for farm produce and spent it again with a Nashville merchant. Four times in six years that dollar camo back to him for produce and three times he heard of it in the pockets of his neighbors. The last time he got it nearly four years ago, he sent it to a big Chicago mail order house that has amassed a hundred million dollars by selling third rate merchandise at second rate prices. He has never seen the marked dollar since and never will till the crack of doom. The dollar will never pay any more school or road tax for him, never help to build up the town or country, never bless or brighten the homes of his neighbors. He sent it entirely out of the circuit of its usefulness to him. And yet there'are hundreds in this country who would * find it mighty -inconvenient to get along without the local merchant, who are sending many dollars out- of town- for groceries and dry goods which they should buy at. home.
