Established 1878 CLARE, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY MORNING,' JUNE 28, 1912. New ISeries: Vol. 20, No. 33 Wedding Bells In California. ' Word has just reaohed us of the marriage of Mias Beulah. Blain, form"? erly of this city, to Mr. E, A. Van- ,||- delinder of Los Angeles, Cal, - The wedding occurred Wednesday even- - . ing, 'May 22, at the home of their pastor, Rev. J< E. Cochran, with the groom's parents and friends of both, tAB witnesses. > They spent a week in leisurely visiting the various sight-seeing "places around the city and then took up housekeeping. Miss Blain left here last fall in company with her parents, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Presley"to seek her fortune in tbe West, Cupid seemed to be in advance of her and soon had her future plans mapped out according to the program just carried out. She was very prettily gowned in a white silk dress wit.h all over silk lace and white picture hat. The groom is a young man of worth and is employed by the Los Angeles Street Railway Oo. ■ He is held high in tbe esteem of all his friends. Mrs. Vandelinder has spent most of her life in and around Clare and counts her friends in very large numbers who will all wish her and her husband, Godspeed as they journey through life togeth'er. X > \ '*£' FIELD DAY Profits Are on Wrong Side of Ledger. Good, clean sports are certainly to be commended, especially as an adjunct of school work. They are conducive of health and an aid to School discipline. Superintendent Poulson is an enthusiast along that line and has created a genuine interest in the matter in this city. The tann's court has been most liberally patronized, indeed we presume another one would be very acceptable, While basket ball received due attention during the winter, At the session of the Teachers' Institute here, a county organization was formed as will be remembered and plans initiated to hold "field day" exercises in connection with the Eighth Grade exercises. Uomr. Aldrieu of course bad tbe burden of work outside, and, considering that this was the first attempt at anything of the sort here, the Field Day was a pronounced success though financially, there was a loss. We are not informed but presume that it is the purpose of the Athletic Association to continue the work and hold another contest next year.

Dinner Will be Befvea* at Cong, church July 4th for 25c. Also supper for l6o. Too can figure on "something to oat." Nearly every seat in tjhe Methodist church was filled on Friday evening to witness the closing exercises of our city schools. The evening was cool and agreeable", and everything moved off very nicely. The decorations were the work of Groyer Pierqe and were certainly artistic. "Class of 1912" appeared in gilt letters above the class colors, pink and blue, while the class motto,. ''Don't Dodge Difficulties," occupied a prominent position in front. Of oourse "Old Glory" was not forgotten by any means. Unlike most classes, the boys in this case outnumbered tbe girls. One 'innovation in tbe program was tbe omission of the "Class History,J' usually a burlesque mostly, giving all kinds of information about things.in the lives of the members that never happened. The "Class Prophesy" was unique and very successfully worked out. One feature of the essays and orations was that severalof them dealt with practical, concrete topics rather than with abstract themes. Mrs. Willis played the class march during which the class and High School teachers entered and took seats upon the platform, Rev. Kennedy offered prayer and then Miss Anna Geroux delivered the Salutatory, extending in behalf of the class to the assembled audience a cordial greeting. Sbe felt tbat the class would be true to their motto. A diploma confers no credit upon its holder unless it has been earned. Miss Geroux was somewhat embarrassed, due in a measure perhaps to the fact that she was first on the program. Bernie Hawkins gave quite an extended account of the organization of the "Boy Scouts," their training and the work they are attempting. He stated that Pres. Tafc is honorary president of tbe organization and Mr. Roosevelt vice-president. This, fact should certainly be a guarrantee of harmony. It is not a military organization, rather it seeks always to inculcate peace. It is now almost world wide. Its members* are taught woodcraft and campcraft and are prepared to be useful wherever possible. Tbe first class Scout is supposed to be well fitted for life. Bernice Terwilliger in a very earnest way told why woman is the savior of the state. The home is the foundation of all civilization and woman creates the home. If men could rise out of their graves, they would not dispute that. If man is successful in any degree, it is because he has a good home. Woman can ever create that even though the home may be lowly.. Of course man has aided in tbis work. The master and mistress together have made the home. Man has created the State. Has bis work been altogether successful? Listen to the cries of the lowly for an answer. Man needs woman's aid here and she should help him re-create the State and make earth a better place for all mankind. Miss Mildred Davy sang sweetly. "An Enchanted Garden" and then Percy Wilson told about our big "North Pole" possession, Alaska. Few realize the extent and natural wealth of this immense country. He spoke of tbe way it appeals to different people. To the miner it appeals in one way, while to tbe scientist, the'merchant, tbe capitalist, etc., it has a different meaning. Its mineral wealth is very great. Its coal fields are 50 per cent greater than those of Pennsylvania at the outset. Its salmon fisheries are likely to be a source of great wealth. Good government and population are now its greatest needs. "The World Peace Movement," was the theme of Zora Converse. In the not very remote past, every important question among nations was settled upon the battle field. Slowly the injunction, "Peace on earth, j_gpod wjirto men" has found lodge- 'ment in "the hearts "of men. Gen. Sherman declared that "war is hell" and every nation that builds op a great army and navy iB sure sooner or later to get into troilblo. In many ways this country occupies a field Wbich preeminently fits it to lead in. this great movement. Nelle Jackson told of the ravages The Independence Bell HERE wa« tumult in thff city. In the quaint old Quaker town. And the streets were rife with people Pacing restless' up and down—'■ People gathered at the corners, Where tbey whispered each'to each. And the sweat stood on their temples With the earnestness of speech. II. As the bleak Atlantic currents Lash the wild Newfoundland shore, So they beat against the statehouse, So they surged against the door, And the mingling of their voices Made a harmony profound Till,the quiet street of Chestnut Was all turbulent with sound. HI. So they surged against the statehouse. White all solemnly inside Sat the Continental congress, Truth and reason for its guide, O'er a simpie scroll debating, Which, though simple it might be. Yet should shake the cliffs of England With the thunders of the free. The Independence Bell. iv. Far aloft in that high steeple Sat the bellman, old and gray. He was weary of the tyrant And his iron sceptered Sway, So he sat with one hand ready On the clapper of tho bell, f When his eye could catch the signal. The long expected news to tell. V. "Will they do it?" "Dare they do it?" Seel Seel The dense crowd quivers Through ali its lengthy line As the boy beside the portal Hastens forth to give the signl With his little hands uplifted, Breezes dallying with his hair- Hark, with deep, clear intonation Breaks his young voice on the airl VI. » Hushed the people's swelling murmur While the boy cries joyously. "Ringl" he shouts. "Ring, grandpapa! Ring, oh, ring for Libertyl" Quickly at the given signal The old bellman lifts his hand. Forth he sends the good news, making Iron music through the land. VII. How they shoutedl What rejoicing) How the old bell shook the air Till tho clang of freedom ruffled The calmly gliding Delawarel How the bonfires and the torche* Lighted up the night's repose, And from the flames, like fabled phoenix, Our glorious Liberty arose I SASKATCHEWAN VIII. That old statehouse bell is silent. Hushed is now its clamorous tongue, But the spirit it awakened Still is living, ever young, And when we greet the smiling sunlight On the Fourth of each July We will ne'er forget the bellman ' Who, betwixt the earth and sky, Rung out loudly "Independence,-* Which, please God, shall never diel of "The White Plague," a devouring monster that during the past four years has cost three times as many lives as did the great Civil War. She told of the campaign of education going on and the efforts being put forth by various organizations to educate the people. It is now quite generally understood that the disease is caused bj a germ and is to a large extent preventable. What is needed is a general campaign of houseclean- ing. • Milton Wright had laid upon him the task of showing "The Wide Sweep Of Socialism" and so anxious was he to tackle the job that he appeared on tbe scene a little ahead of schedule time. However, that did not matter very much and he certainly offered the audience several things to think about. In lower stages of ciyilation, the bulk of mankind are only chattels. Later feudalism appears and tbey become the vassals of various chieftains. Our * con- stituton declares tbat all men are created free and equal, hence they are entitled to an equal share in the earth's natural products which are the source of all wealth. It has been charged that Socialism would kill all initiative and incentive to work. This the Bpeaker contended is not true. With the Socialist system prevailing, men would not be engaged ina mad scramble for wealth, bat obler work would engage their attention. He insisted that Socialists are in no sense Anarchists and are entirely opposed to tbe doctrines of tbat class. Irma Black and Lavell Lowry sang a duet and then Kyle McKmnon proceeded to "Swat the Fly." In 1911, perhaps a billion flies were exterminated. If the plans for 1912 are carried out, the crop for 1913 should be lessened. Scientists have for some time been studying the question and the -knowledge already gained should convince all of dangerous character of this pest and how intelligently to combat it. One word will tell its origin—filth. Its extermination was likened to a Holy War waged by Orusadi-ra. The speaker had some charts, illustrating the manner in wbieb disease germs are carried from filth to food and from diseased patients to healthy persons. Unceasing warfare' must be waged against filth in every form. Frank Hampton and William Waller "made believe" that 20 years had passed since graduation when they meet to compare notes. Mr. Hampton is a missionary whose piety and zeal are known the world over, and Mr. Waller is a great designer having built the first aeroplane. In various ways tbey bad learned about the members of the class, and this they proceeded to unfold. Mr. McKinnon was a great lawyer whose reputation permitted him to charge a Entertaining Letter from George Luther. It will be remembered tbat a few weeks ago* Mr, and Mrs. George .Luther went from this city to far away nortnwest Canada. Their many friends here will be interested in knowing how the country there strikes them after a very short stay. The "script" referred to waa in denominations of 25 cents and closely resembles our "Fractional Currency," issued during tbe Oivil war and in circulation many years after. Mr. Luther says: Alsask, (3-18-12. Dear Sentinel:—Inclosed you will find SOc in Canadian script to pay postage. We are glad to receive the Sentinel with all the news from home. There's a little woman out here who reads it every word "ads and all." Nearly all the settlers here are from tbe States seveial from CJare county. Certainly everything ont bere looks like it was an adjunct of the TJ, S. Tbe first stop off we made was at Saskaton. Close to tbe depot they were paving with asphalt. I thought tbe steam roller looked suspicious, so I walked over and read in cast-iron letters, "Buffalo, N. Y." Tben*.while walking four squares I connted over 60. autos on tbe street, most of them made in tbe U. S. In their daily paper I read tbat the city bad recently raised a million dollar development fund to boost the city and bad just sent one of their leading men to Detroit, Mich., for the purpose of securing tbe boosting ability of the man who madej, Detroit first the Convention city, and then tbe great manufacturing city it now is. The big steam plough and most of tbe big harvest machines^'ubed ont here are manufactured in the TJ. S. The cities of Winnapeg, Edmonton, Calgary and many other others are enjoying a great boom and bave appealed to tbe government for relief from the duty on American cement. The Canadian factories are unable to supply tbe demand. Calgary, one of the smaller cities, uses 800 bbls. a day. So the Government at Ottawa has reduced the duty from 52c to 26c a bbl. for a period of four months. Calgary will have a genuine Wild West Bronco Buster Cavalcade in September, and the only greatest Theodore bas premised to be there, Rough Riders and all. John D's. kerosene oil sells at 35c a gallon out bere and the blue flame and perfection oil stoves sell at S2.00 higher than the regular price in Clare. Thus do Canadians play the adjunct role commercially. This is the great day of the Chicago Convention and tbe nomination of the beloved Teddy, but it will be a week before we get particulars. This is a new town on a new railroad and our mail reaches bere on Wednesdays and Saturdays only, there frequently being three tons of mail for tbis office on tbe above days. Yours, Geo. Lutber. dollar a word for adyice. Mr. Wright was running a matrimonial bureau in Chicago. Zora Converse was a Red Cross nurse. Florence Davy shone as a great educator, while-Bernice Terwilliger was found in Germany leading the temperance movement. Nelle Jackson was an eminent physician, and Percy Wilson a missionary in tbe wilds of Africa. Bernie Hawkins was an eminent civil engineer while Anna Geroux shone in the political world, having just been elected governor of Arizona. A quartette, Cudney, Feighner, Andrus and Converse, sang "The Rosary" and, in response to an encore told how the boy sat down on a tack, and then Florence Davy gave the valedictory. Twelve years ago most of the class began here the course just completed, and how well that work had been done only the future could decide. Thus far they bad worked together but now each must work alone. The world is demanding special preparation in every line and none without this can hope to succeed. In behalf of the school board D. E. Alward addressed the class. He was reminded of the lapse of time by the fact that some in the class were the children of the earlier teachers. He spoke of tbe pride that all feel in the schools. While many classes had gone out, there was none in which the people felt a greater pride than in tbe present one, nor one from which they would expect more. No life is a success unless every day it. accomplishes some good. One gains most happiness in helping others to be happy. He then presented the diplomas, wishing the class abundant success in the future. Annual Banquet. We acknowledge receipt of an in-* yitation to the banquet of Federation of State and Provincial Organizations of Southern California to be^ held Thursday evening, June 27. The time seems rather short, bat the sender, * Mr. Ballenger kindly suggests that an aeroplane would turn the trick all right. The card states that 22C0 were in attendance last year, so we judge that a million will be about the right figure this year if the plates and tickets hold out;. Here's to the hope that the "Michi- gandefs and Michigeese" may outnumber all the rest. • - RESOLUTIONS Adopted by the Wise' Farmers Club. Whereas, it has pleased God our Heavenly Father to take from our midst the beloved wife of W. R. Lansing, who passed from tbis life to tbe Heavenly home on June'12, 1912*: .She had been confined to her bed of suffering fpr eight months, en^- dnring her affliction with Obristlike patience and being tenderly cared for by her family. Resolved, that we extend to th& husband and children our heartfelt, sympathy in this their great'affliction. • Also he it further resolved, that these resolutions be spread on the= record of the Wise Farmers' Club, and that copies be sent to our local papers. , Mrs. Wm. Badgley, Mrs. McJames, Mrs. Maxwell, ' Committee Paving Contract. At a special meeting of the city council held Wednesday evening, the contract for several blocks of ce^ ment paving was awarded to James A. McKay. The Northern Construction Oo. to whom tbe ' contract was first awarded, decided to throw up* tbe contract. Mr. McKay will begin work as soon as he can organize matters.—St. Johns Republican. CHILDREN'S DAY - Fittingly Observed at Sheridan* Baptist Church. Sunday evening, Judo 23rd, the Sheridan Baptist church observed Children's Day in a way which will make the event long to be remembered. The decorations were beautiful. The program consisted of class exercises, drills, recitations, and music of the first quality. The event was truly a credit to the community, and especially to those having the arrangements in charge. More -than two hundred were present. Rev. I. W. Knight is pastor of the church, preaching each Sunday afternoon at three o'clock. A Reminder. Those who use city water for lawns and gardens, should remember, that in case of fire it is absolutely important to shut off their supply at once, so that there may be the necessary pressure and supply to safeguard property. CONFIDENCE A Word to Business Men On A Live Subject. Advertising is one sign that a merchant believes in what he sells. It appeals to the purchaser to see a certain line of goods recommended. For tbat matter, why should other people believe in the supbrioe quality' of your wares, unless you do yourself. You should be selling the best goods that can be had. If not* you don't deserve the trade yon now have.. If you are, the only question is how to inform tbe public. The easiest way to reach them is is through the columns of your local paper. The sentinel has double the " circulation of any paper in Clare Co.*; and is read by 4000 .people in this vicinity. Let us help you to. solve the problem. Announcement. I haye opened a cleaning and pressing establishment over Valley anil Jenning's second hand store and guarantee first class work oh ladies'; and gents' clothes. Your patronage will be greatly^appreciated. Roy Grieser. Dinner! Dinner! July 4th at the Methodist church; Biggest and beat for 25c.
