Of course we have been called mean names, but that's all for your benefit and a little of it for us.

Th.e city council is co-roperating', with the. iusmfissjm-M^_aBlo.ci^ij)nj-aM has instructed J. p.,Bunwoodie to make" a thorough canvass among the farmers within a radius of five mile:! of the city for contracts. Nearly one- half has already been secured and it' is expected that fully two hundred acres will be contracted (for within the next week. . The history of cucumber growing proves it to be a very profitable crop for the farmer, an ordinary Season producing an average of $75. worth per acre, and until picking time no more care is necessary than is required by the corn crop. Contracts may be had of Mr. Dnn- woodie, as well as nearly all tlie business places of the 'city. The price paid, terms of payment and all requirements are sot up in the contract." Farmers should acquaint themselves with the matter, for such an institution in Clare would be of great benefit i^o them. DISCUSS NUHf REFORM!

Former Clat-cite Under Arrest in Flint for Serious Crime. The Detroit News, of Wednesday, contained the following: Leonard Simonson, a bartender fromFarwell, Mich,, came here yesterday and when night had arrived he had accumulated a "heavy load." Simon- son boarded a street car in which were three respectable colored women and soon began to act in a disr respectful manner, squirting lemon juice on their gowns and addressing them-in a rude way. One of the women struck Simonson over the head with her umbrella and at that the man struck her. Another woman ran to her friend's- assistance and Simonson hit her in the mouth, dislodging two of her teeth. The motorman finally came to the assistance of the women and the Farwell man was taken to the jail by offlcers. He was arraigned on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and bail fixed at $300. Simonson intended to enter the saloon business here, but got on the wrong side of the bar. Later—Mr. Simonson has since returned home, and declares the bove to be greatly exagerated.. a- HORSE BREEDERS. Company Organized which Purchases Fine Perchcron Stallion. "The Clare.

The question is brought before the local 'Granges by a resolution upon the subject expressing the views of a committee appointed for that purpose, and at its meeting on Monday evening last, Mt. Vernon Grange, of Vernon, received the following resolution from its committee and the same will be discussed at the meeting next Monday evening: Whereas—there seems to be defects in-the system of nominating public officers, in that the will of the people of "a political party as to who should.be the candidate for a certain office is not transmitted to the convention in which he is nomi- n,ated, and Whereas—it is charged that cor- rivotion in the use-of money in con-, trolling conventions is the principal factor in thus subverting the will of the individual voter, therefore be it Resolved—by Mt. Vernon Grange No;'-992, that the election* law be amended as follows; 1st—to repeal the act providing a certain and general day of registration: -2nd—to provide'.that'jt'he day and place*of the. caucuses of the different political parties of a precinct be designated the day and place of registration,- Any elector registering at -the caucus of his political party preceding a general or local election may vote at said general or local election, and no other. 3d—to. provide, seyere penalties for violations of said provisions. 4th—that delegates elected to state or district conventions, be allowed, at public expense, mileage for distance actually travelled- and per diem for time actually spent while -attending said- convention. And beSit further Resolved—that the radical change in our nominating system,, as advocated by those in favor of'a primary election law, would not be desirable.
