Robert Thompson, P. M. Ticket Clerk Operator, Expires in Eiwoqd. Ind. and This community was sadly shocked last week to learn of the death of Bobert Thompson, Pere Marquette ticket clerk and operator at the union station, at the home of his ■wife's brother, Norm. Benner, in Elwood, Ind., on Thursday evening of last week. .While a resident of this city for many years, "Bob.'' had for the past two years been located here in the position above mentioned, and the service rendered had been so satisfactory to his employers and to the general public tbat his demise was startling in the extreme. This was the first vacation he bad asked for or received during the period, and three weeks ago, accompanied by his wife 'aud little son, left for Canada to visit relatives and rest from his duties. From. Canada he went to Huntington, Ind., where he remained for a few days with airs. Jas. Brown, sister of his wife, and from there went to Blwood to spend a few days with Mrs. Thompson's brother, Norm. Benner. While THE ANNUAL BUDGET! City Fathers Pass Appropriation ' This Years Tax.

THE LARGEST FEED BARN! Glare Boast? of Greater Accomodations ■ for Horses Than Any Neighboring Town. The accompanying picture gives but a vague idea of of the enormity there be was taken ill, and inside of a week passed away, the direct cause being internal hemmorage. The remains, accompanied by the grief stricken wife and Jas. Brown, arrived in Clare on Saturday night, and the funeral was held from tbe home of his mother on Tuesday afternoon,'conducted by Bev. Maxwell, and the interment was made in Cherry Grove. Bobert was thirty-eight years, of age, and the oldest of the children in the family. He had ever been a favorite among the people of the city, as a competent, obliging and pleasant occupant of tbe position with whom the general public comes in contact. His death is most generally mourned, and the wife and little son have the sympathy of the entire community. Besides the wife, son and mother, the following brothers and sisters survive; Will, of Bosebush; .Tames, of Freesoil; Mrs. Ella Caldwell, of Bidgeland, Wis.; Frank, ot Coleman; Mrs. P. A. Bennett, Fred and Fioyd, of Clare. Cion Thpaha nhannoc Hflnrfc UIQI HIGUUO Unuiiyutf iiuiiuu. Thb'Coxjbteb is advised that Geo. W. Lee has purchased the Star theatre, of this city and takes possession on Monday next. Mr. Lee is well known in Clare as a thoroughly honest and progressive business man, and this insures a continued success for this popular amusement resort. Messrs. Whitney and Huttoa, of Mt. Pleasant, who established the enterprise here are pleased with the magnificent patronage received, and commend to the public the new owner of the Star, They will doubtless locate at some other point ere long. of the feed stables constructed by and now under the immediate charge of John O'Callaghan, fronting upon McEwan and Third streets. The main building, fronting upon McEwan, is'40xl37 feet, two stories high and constructed of cement blocks. Adjoining this and fronting upon Third is tbe building erected in 1903, 60x115 feet in size. In thel'e barns Mr. O'Callaghan can accomodate 250 horses at one time. The new barn will be suitably fitted with waiting rooms for both ladies and gentlemen and suitable offices. Tbe service will be the best and the enterprising proprietor is entitled to liberal returns for having invested so much to insure the farmers of this vicinity a suitable place to leave their conveyances when in town. COUUTY FARM POLICY! Conceded at County Seat that Poor Farm Should be Farmed. Don't Miss It. The production of "Faust" at tbe Opera House Wednesday night by Mr. Hubert Labadie and his excellent company promises to be a rich treat dramatically. Mr. Labadie as Mepbisto has no superior in tbe stage to-day, and hiB style of acting is well known to our theatregoers. Maro Von Tromp-Labadie is the Marguerite, and she, too, 5_< bo stranger here. She is a pleasing actress of great ability. "Faust" is in the hands of Mr Frank Smith again this season and will be well handled. Mr. Smith is by no means ne\f in the part, and is a capable actor of pleasing appearance and graceful carriage, The Courier's expose of the conditions surrounding the county' farm and its present management has brought some results, and the aggitation promises to progress to a point where the board of supervisors will rise up and take notice. Tbe Cleaver of last week praises Thos. Coit, in charge, but concedes that there is something wrong in the policy of the farm management. To prove that crops could be raised upon the county acre the manager had a creditable exhibit at the county fair. Well and good. This is just what the people wanted to learn. If crops of a creditable character can be raised upon tbe county farm, then go to farming in the right way aud raise iqore. crops. Make the soil owned by the county assist in supporting the unfortunates which the county is compelled' to now support directly from its trepsury. Every well meaning citizen would like to see a thrifty, ^profitable- and up-to-date county farm, and if we now bave soil of the .right kind let's farm it right. , ESTRAY—Came into my enclosure Aug* 25th, one ewe and two lambs. Owner can have same by proving property and paying charges. Bofliitt-. Martin, Vernon twp. 10t3 ARRANGEMENTS ARE COMPLETE Every Teacher in the County is Expected to be Present at the Inspiration Institute Here Next Week. Next week Wednesday morning every live teacher in the county will enroll at the inspiration institute to be held in Clare high' school and continuing three days. Every teacher will be given a*certificate of attendance which when presented to her director will enable her to draw pay for .every half day in actu al attendance. Arrangements are being made to accommedate every teacher in attendance, at hotels or private residences. Some of the best homes in the city will- be opened to receive the teachers. Bates at the Calkins $1.50 per day; ajb tbe Central feotel $1.00; and at private residences at from 50c to 75c. • . . One of the features of the Institute will be the lectures at the opera house Thursday evening at eight o'clock sun time. Prof. Ernest Burnham of Kalamazoo will talk thirty minutes on the subject, "The Campaign for Bural Progress," and it is especially urged that a large number of rural school boards and rural patrons hear this talk by one of the foremost of Michigan's young educators. Following him the same evening Prof. W. D Miller, at the bead of the Manual Training department of the Mt Pleasant Normal, will give a half hour's talk on the subject, "Why Should Manual Training Interest Parents?" The o'd adage, "Ihe idle mind is the devil's work shop," is being daily proven true, and the only way to keep the youth of our land from degrading influences is to keep him busily engaged at something he likes to do. While this is a teacher' instilue, i', is hoped that many of the fathers and mothers of Clare and surrounding country or of the county general ly will avail themselves of the opportunity of seeing what their teachers talk about and do at a teachers'.institute. E. G. W-KLOH, Oom'r TBE County Taxes Wilt Not Be Materially Reduced, Notwithstanding the Enormous Amounts Received from State. Bepeated declarations to the effect that the county had received so much from the sale of deliquent tax lands this year, that the resident of tbe rural districts would almost be offered a premium to remain upon their farm?, County Treasurer Goodman reports that the balance to be reported by him on Oct. let would not exceed $8,000. This indicates that there can be no materal reduction ia the amount accessary to be raised by the board of supervisors for county purposes, and the taxpayers may as well se. themselves at rest upon the question at once. The county tax will be approx imately as great as usual. True, a large amount has been received from the state, but it has been apportioned to the townships, and in many Cases it has been spent with remarkable expediency, hence there can be but little reduction n the general levy. The old rule still appears to apply, namely, "Ths more we get the more we spend." The expenses of caring for the county poor has this year gone beyond the amount usually expended for such purpose, and this will necessarily have to, be met. Tha state tax, as reported in The Courier is away beyond tha amount of la3t year, and all will go to swell the total. The total tax may not ex'e^d that of previous years, but the reader should not deceive himself into believing that's it's going t. be any uausual pleae- ur.> this year to mee j the collector. Successful Revival. The revival at the Cr-ng'l church at Dover conducted by Bev. C. F. Shaw bas been in every way successful. Twenty-five have been added to the'membership and the following officers were elected: Deacons, Wm. Crawford, Scott Lackie; Trustees, Frank Acre, Geo, McOre- ary, Budolph Holtz; Treasurer, Mrs. Dan.
