■m. Established 187$ ULARB, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 18, 1912. STILL YOUNG. Grandma Sexsmith Celebrates 91st Birthday. Grandma Sexsmith of this city seems to have come of a long-lived race, Her mother passed tbe century mark and never knew a sick day and now the daughter bidB fair to follow the pace tbe mother "set. On the 15th of this month she reached the 91st milestone, still hale and hearty. The ., four daughters concluded that such au occasion deserved to be eel* ebrated in becoming style, so proceeded to assemble a group that must bave taxed the dwelling to the utmjost. Two of the daughters, Miss Enfpa and Mrs. Wttliston, live here; but Mrs. W. H. Bedford and Mrs. E,' W. Hazlett came all the way from Canada. Grand-children and great- grand children from' Marlette, Glad* win and perhaps various other towns came in nooks. One day was too short, for such an occasion, so the ., celebration lasted two days. If tbere are any good things to eat that they did not have, it was because they did not happen to to think about it. To add to the occasion, A. J. Doherty very kindly took the mother and four daughter for an auto ride of several miles in the country. We presume' all will admit that Mrs. Sexsmith was the youngest member of the party. Four score and eleven years make a long period in the journey of life. Nothing can seem more desirable than a healthy and'happy old age and all will wish Grandma Sexsmith many more returns of such happy events aa tbis. They Were Surprised. From the way that Rey. Knight goes about the city, peering into the alleys and byways, one would suppose that np body of people could "put up a job" on him very easily. However the trick Booms to have been turned on Friday evening. A large force quietly gathered at the ohurch and then proceeded to swoop down on the parsonage. What that crowd failed to carry along in the shape ofveatables it' would be difficult to conceive as we are informed.) When Mr, Knight was putting in that cellar in the summer one could not but wonder what possible use he could have for it. Like editors, preachers would not be supposed to purchase more than a peck of potatoes and one cabbage bead at p time. It appears now that he was wiser in hiB foresight than some men are in their hindsight, Anyway that cellar is now full and it was donecat one fell swoop, so that one preacher and his family can now defy tbe wolf till spring. It is needless to say tbat a very enjoyable time was had by all present. New Series^ Vol 20, No. 49 KAYKAKEE CLUB Holds Its First Meeting Of Year On Tuesday. The The Home Days. . When the goldenrod has withered, and the maple leaves are red, When the robin's nest is empty, and cricket's prayers are said In the silent and the shadow of the swiftly hastening fall Come the dear and happy home days, days.we love the best of all. Then the household gathers early, and the firelight leap") aud glows Till the old hearth in its brightness ■ wears the gl<g[|fof the rose; Then the grancKire thinks of stories, and the children eluster sweet, And the floor is just a keyboard for • the baby's pattering feet. **4f the raindrops dance cotillions on the roof and on the eaves, If the chill wind sweeps the meadow, shorn and bare and bound in sheaves. If the snowflakos come like faires, shod in shoes of silent, we ~ Only crowd the closer, closer, where the cheery kindred be. Oh, the dear face of the mother, as she tucks the laddies in, Ob, the big Voice of the father, heard O'er all the merry din; Home, the happy homely loved ones, how they weave their spells around. Heart and life and creed and memory, in the farmstead's holy ground. —Margaret E. SangBter, in Worn- e. an's Home Companion. The opening meeting of the Kay- kakee Club for the season of I912-1S took place Tuesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. A. A. Shaver, twelve members being present. This, organization enjoyed a very prosperous year last season, and one which the members considered to be of great profit. Handsome booklets have already been printed covering the entire year's work, meetings being held every second Tuesday up to May 20,1913, and under the leadership of their president, Mrs. E. A. White, expect to accomplish much along literary lines, i ,MrB. F. R. Gray had a paper on, Early History of Canada, The Bushrangers and Voyaguers; Mrs. E. A. Anderson had a paper on Gilbert Parker, the author, both being followed by interesting discussions. Some routine works was also done, Mrs. E. H. Waller being chosen vice- president to succeed Mrs. Gray, Who' is soon to leave \he city. Tbe sec- i ond meeting occurs Oct. 29th, with Mrs, John Dunlop.

Constable George Valley s'oll the office furniture of the Wolverine Turpentine Co. whiohbad been seized to satisfy-a judgement obtained by Lawrence Jaokson againt the company, presumably for rent. There was only a very modest amount of this furniture and very likely some of the judgement remains unsatisfied, Among tbe valuables was a cuspidor and a bottle of turpentine. Memory goes back to the? days when these enthusiastic promotbrs struck the city- and proceeded to disclose the great things, in store for us, In imagination- we saw the country being transformed into a veritable garden as trainloads of those pesky pine 6tumps came in and were switched up to that mammoth factory. Dense columns of black smoke were wafted over the city, transforming it into a second Pittsburg. Carloads of turpentine and those.' various "by-products" were going out to eager purehaseps. But the dream is dispelled and we have left a spittoon and a bottle of turpentine. few BEULAH BUCK QUARTET. VOTES FOR WOMEN. Bob Burdette says: I^was watching a ball game a days ago, sitting beside a friend, and we were discussing this question of equal suffrage. He was emphatically in opposition. In *>Jae midst of.his anti-suffrage argument the umpire made a decision that put O'Shaug- nessy out at third. My friend _ went up in - the air like a sky rocket. "Bank!" he yelled as he spread his cavernous mouth over a purple face. d'ye git for thief!" A policeman threatened him and he sat down, cooled hiB throat with a bottle of pop, hid tbe bottle under the' seat—"For tbat umpire, "he explained, and then went on: "The trouble with women is they're too excitable to go into politics." "Rotten! Robber! what it? Kill him! Stop SUSPICIOUS SOCIETY Seems To Have Been Instituted In The City. Secret orders seem** to havo been multiplied so rapidly of late that tbe ordinary individual finds himself bewildered in attempting to keep track of them. Of course each new one claims that it fills "a long felt want"* and is just the one thing that the World has been waiting for, While all these various soeities have of course sought to mak^ converts, none of tbem bave resorted to threats and intimidation to accomplish that purpose so far as we know. Very recently, however, we have* chanced to see a document that leads us to conclude that a most mysterious society is in existence in this city. Whether this is "the whole thing'3* or only a" branch we «an only' con-' jeoture. Tbis document, whicb bears* the mysterious and startling signature, "A. O. O, P., and bas as ite apparent emblem a skull and cross" bones, commands under dire pen-? alties certain individuals to appear before it. We hear that a meeting of this dangerous order, evidently closely allied to the Italian Mafia, was held on East Eight St. on Friday: evening. No particulars are avail-" able, but it is reported that the cries and shrieks of the unhappy victims created the wildest excitement in that section of the city. We understand that the matter will be takem up by the Common Council at its next meeting and- an„ investigation will doubtless follow. A Bad Fall. New Lumber Yard. Representatives of the Fremont Lumber Co. were in town On Wednesday looking the city qver with the'view of establishing a lumber yard here. We are informed that the thing is a go and tbat the yard Will be located south of tbe Park on ground between Fpurth street and the railroad. It will certainly be a much desired improvement to have this ground cleaned up and some neat buildings erected thereon.' Tha Park presents an attractive appearance from the rail-road, but it does not enhance its beauty, any to look across this wretched strip of ground. J School Of Instruction. A school of instuction was held in the rooms of the local Masonic, lodge on Monday evening of tbis week. Delegations from Farwell, Harrison, Coleman and Beaverton were present, the first named lodge conduct ing second degree worts: in the afternoon, while members of the Olare organization took care of/ third . degree work in evening» . A six o'clock dinner was served, which was much enjoyed'- ahd a lunch was also spread at the'close of the ceremonies. Frank O. Gilbert, Grand Lecturer, was present, and congratulated the several lodges on the excellent manner in which their work was done. ' Some Ruta-Baga. John Mcintosh of Grant township haB brought to this office a rnta-baga tbat tips the beam at ll pounds, 2 ounces. Three or four such would make a man a full meal. We do not know how much ground Mr. Mcintosh has occupied by tbis crop, but we should say that an acre or two would supply the entire country. We read recently of a man that raised a baga that wrecked three Stump' machines in a vain attempt to extract it from the earth and when by .tne aid of a triple charge of dynamite it was thrown out, it was found that it had- actually grown through the earth and the- inhabitants of one entire province in China had been subsisting on it for weeksl This story looks e. trifle fishy but the other is all right. in The Coal Question. ' A good deal of anxiety is being caused by the renewed rumors of a Coal famine this winter. Hard coal Was reported not long ago to be selling at $12.00 per ton, while some were assuring their next door neighbors tbat there was no coal in town and would be none all winter. The facts are that chestnut coal was .selling for S8.50 the first of tbe week, an increase of fifty cents a ton since n the season opened, With apparently, enough on hand to supply the presents demand. Both dealers bave various grades of soft coal in their bins, and it is not likely that the town will suffer until well itito the winter at least. However, many are taking tbe prudent course, and are stocking up to the capacity of their bins. ROLAND NICHOLS. Ex-Gov. Hanly has no superior on the lecture platform today and of all his lectures none is more.popular thaii "Tbe Patriotism of Peace,*' the one to be delivered here. Perhaps Mr. Nichols 4n*ay not be so Well known as Gov. Hanly but he "delivers the goods" just the same. Who would not like to hear what sort of man he deems "worth while". Said Pat to Mike: "And sure it is ' Things are coming.to a pretty note. Who'll womaq,leave the baby with When she goes out to Vote?" Says Mike to Pat: "And sure as this Old world turns on its axis, She'll leave it with tbe one she does When she goes to pay her taxes." While J. A. Allen was enroute to bis store Monday riding a . bicycle as he often does, the steep bank near home of A. E. LaPierre caused the. wheel to overturn, throwing Mr. Allen to the gutter, giving him a. severe jolt. Dr. Sanford was called and found a rib fractured^ which will confine the patient to the house fox- some time. " STATE TAX. Many Counties Receive Than Paid. More Church News. PASTOB conduct- OATHOIIO FATHER J. J. MCALLISTEJR, Father Miller .of Midland ed services last Sunday.

Anyone desiring estimates on sower work see E. Oasey next Morday alley across from Oalkins Hotel. Advertisement, j needed for a number of years. For a sample of genuine enter- prie in "occupying the field early" the American Press Association deserves special mention. Within 36 .hours after the attempted, assassination of Col. Boosevelt it had plates for a page obituary of Mr. Roosevelt, "effectively illustrated,"" all ready to ship. We 'suspect that no obituary of Mr. Eoosevelt will be THE SCHUBERTS. JEAN AND ORD BOHANNAN, Musical Entertainers. Remember tickets will be on sale soon and they will go like hot cakes. Doubtless the seating capacity of any" hall in the city will Be taxed and the committee do not Wish any to be crowded.

DtJRYEE, PASTOR. Services at the usual hours. BAPTIST. ^ BEV. I. WILBDR KNIGHT, PASTOR.

According to report from Lansing; corporations will pay more in taxes to the state this year than other- forms of property, the amounts being $5,515,155 and 15,4^2,308 respectfully. The counties of the state will receive from the state in the form of primary school money $62,847 more than they pay back to> the state in taxes. 55 counties are in this happy condition while 28 have the balance on th&other side of tbe ledger. Here is a case where a good supply of children is better thane property. Clare county gets 814,992 in excesB ot state tax, and Isabella S14.025. A New Enterprise. '' V We are in receipt of Vol. 1, No. 2, ofthe "Clare and Sheridan Baptist Missions," a monthly periodical issued by Rev. Knight of the Baptist church. It is a 12 page paper, 10 of them being syndicate matter and two local, one of reading matter and tbe other ads. From a hasty examination of the syndicate matter We4 should say that it is carefully selected and the local matter of real interest to the members of tfiat; church for whom of course it is primarily designed. Our business men always seem ready to encourage any worthy enterprise and we presume the ads meet the expense for publication. Our Baptist friends seem to be prospering and all will rejoice in their prosperity. They are certainly zealous in- their work and deserve to succeed.
