Negotiations covering a period of several weeks have been concluded, through which Dan' Grouse sells his shoe stock to Will Lange, for several years'a clerk in the store in question.

W ASA H. ALDKICH Former Democratic School Commissioner, Who Now Expects Independent Republic»n Nomination, and its result was tlie issuance of a call foi an independent Republican convention at tbe county seat on (lie 28th at 10:3''a. in,, for tbe purpose of nominating a candidate" for school commissioner. The Harrison Cleaver, which paper supported the presen commissioner for a re- nominatioti, has as its editor a former commissioner, and'surrendering io the pleas of those opposed to Vr. Welch, Mr. Aldrich has decided to become the candidate o. tho insurgents. The Cotjkikr has no.desire to mix in the fracas. It was evident that the present commissioner had many enemies in his own convention or he would have received more voles for the nomination; it is also evident that Mr. Aid.ich ha-i many enemies in tbe regular convention or he would have secured enough votes b> have been placed in nomination. Under tl e circumstances it is patent that neither aspirant was regarded by a very large percentage of his party as worthy of the nomination, aud in this This Couiueu most cordially agrees. It isn't often that we find ourselves in a position to agree with both sides, but upon the proposition under discussion we fully coincide with the Welehites that' Aldrich shouldn't be placed in control of our country schools, 'and likewise we agree with the A'drich- ites that Welch hasn't been a stupendous success as a commissioner. It is a Republican row, and we don't propose to worry over the outcome. It is probable that the bosses will tell Aldrich before the 28th to quit his obstreperousness and he good, and he will do it, in which event the independents will be without a candidate. The Democrats at present writing seem to be 'without a candidate, hut in any event the mnority party most deeply regrets that our schools should 1)6 placed in a position where two extreme partisans are quarreling over the spoils incident to the position 'of colitr< 11- >ng their destinies for the coming four years. It?s pretty near time when a man should have some other qualifications than po'ltical loyalty in order to be eligible to the commissioner- ship', tesy to Ihe trade. He will carry substantially the same line long kept in stock in the store which has afforded him employment, and invites the patronage of the public. Ciare City Schools.

TILL PROBLEMIIICJtU JOE HUDSON RE-APPOINTED! i __ Governor Ms Him to Continue on Board of Saginaw Blind Institution, but Joe '' . ■ Don't like Job. . otiee, Ati'pei'soiis owing m- are requested "to call and settle at oi.ee. i , D. GKOtmE, ' Decision of J. T, lloreung as to Stocking His ill Not Yet Determined. Whether the stave mill in Clare will operate another year is yet undetermined, and the- prospects for timber toireiber with the condition of the market will determine the decision of the proprietor. Numerous offers have been made for the machinery and in several instances the proprietor has been disposed to sell and close out his Olare interests, bnt as yet nothing has been dono and at present Mr. Hornung is considering the idea of once more stocking the factory and running another year,. This is one of the.'instances where those in authoilty should get busy and try to keep the industry busy another year. If everybody will boost the mill will run another year, and in the rneantime a satisfactory sale 'may be made, of the property which'wlllin'surrt the city a labor employing industry for a number of &ra. i Out out tlie politics and boost for Clave. *..■«■. •''.".■■ Governor Warper has re-appointed Joseph Hudson,- of this city, as one of the trustees -of the- Saginaw Institution for the Employment of the Blind, but Mr. Hudson is not overly Gsthusiastic o-vsr accepting, although as he now feels he will probably consent to remaih upon the board. Since its establishment Mr. Hudson bas given much of his time to tfcie establishment and operation of this state enterprise and has endeared himself to all .who were anxious to see it conducted upon business principles. He has given of much of his time, entirely with* out pay and has gained the admiration of Saginaw people for his "sterl? ing integrity and manifestation of an honest desire to see the institu. tion develop into a credit to the state. Many features have come to light which made Mr. Hudson averse to accepting a re-appointment, but the importunities of the governor acd friends have been so strong that it is probable that he will accept the job for another six years. PETER BODABAUGH. For Many Years a Resident of Sheridan, Passed Away Wednesday Night. __ In the death of Peter Bodabaugh, Sheridan township loses one of its oldest and most respected settlers. Mr Rodabaugb sufrered a paralytic stroke ou Tuesday, from which time he rapidly grew weaker, until at midnight Wednesday life became extinct. The wife of the deceased passed away about seven years ago, and out of fifteen ehi'dren, nine survive to mourn his loss. Hewas seventy- four yettrs and seven mouths old at the time of death. The funeral will occur from tbe Eagle school house on Sunday. Mart and His Hound Purp. Mart Temple, of Redding, post master of the office that commemorates his classic name, cares more about a real good dog than anything except a sure Republican, majority. Mart has always doted upon sale Republican _ majorities because they were nice things to have in the family and besides provided an extension to the mortgage upon the Temple postofflee. This winter he has sat up o'nights learning a certain hound pup all the tricks in the dog book and a few more. This piirp developed into a most enticing canine, and was sure death to oveiy kind of vermin from common house mice to the ferocious black bear. In an unguarded moment this hound was enticed into a rope by a roaming woodsman and led away, without the opportunity of giving a far- well salute to Temple's postmaster: With diie regard to Mart's Republicanism it is sale to say that he would go farther to recover hound dog than he would to keep iu tune with the boys that' whistle the political tune iu Clare county, though he will go several furlongs to encompass the capture of any suspected"of trespassing upon the sacred rights of the bosses to have his towns_.jp recorded in the right column. Mart boarded the train aud twelve hours later he was on track of that hound. He went to Montcalm county, where there seems to I e a longing for bound pups, and there Mart found the dog. The sheriff was present, armed with warrants but when with sad eye the hound r-oked at-Mart he ^wilted, and the culprit was permitted to settle dpon payment. He paid? Mart.and the hound.returned to Temple, each joyous in tbe ecstaoy of a happy reunion^ and the demands of justice had been satisfied. Tbe common-people Will please understand that it isn't safe to tteal a hound purp from Mart Temple.
