SHORT COURSE FOR FARMERS One Arranged for Early Winter at Mt. Pleasant. A short course for farmers will be held at tbe Mt. Pleasant Normal for one week during _ne early part of the winter. This is not to be an institute, but a school of agriculture. The work will be made as practical as possible with our facilities. Considerable time will be spent studying stock, and stock feeding; visits will be made to near-by farms for the work; corn judging will be taught; soil experiments, spraying, mixing of fertilizers, and the chemistry of farm products will be illustrated. The following is the program for one days' work: 9:00—10:00 Soils. 10:00—11:30 Chemistry of farm products. Fruit and spraying, Stock feeding. Stock judging. ; Good roads. In the evening more general subjects, as the country school, good roads and forestry will be discussed by good speakers. Anyone interested.may attend and no tuition will be charged. Arrangements will be made to secure board and rooms at reasonable rates. There will be several instructors from the Agricultural College to assist in the work. This is the first attempt to hold a short course for farmers in Michigan outside of Lansing, and It is hoped that it will meet with hearty support and good attendance. Due announcement as to the exact nature of the work and time of holding the school will be made later. 1:00—2:00 2:00—3£00 3:00—5:00 7:30 Special Township Prizes.

When their mother died the brothers were separated, Ralph going to live with an Uncle in Wisconsin. Later they served through the civil war, one enlisting in,_be 49th New York and the other in the 23d Wisconsin. In Mr. and Mrs. Van Brunt's long residence in Clare they made a host of warm friends who regret to have them leave, but wish them much joy in their western home, The adjournment of the board of supervisors Wednesday afternoon? closed one of tbe most hard-working: and harmonious sessions the county has ever had. A good deal of wo-*Jc was accomplished in the nine days that will have permanent efcee".- When we say harmonious we ho not- mean there were not differences of* opinion, and even decided ones, bet the spirit of the board was such tbst; defeats were.taken in good part, the judgement of the majority beirag- accepted. The new chairman, Wi_f- H. Browne, proved to be a good mam • for the place. His rulings were well considered and he gave every man his chance to be heard. Some of tbe newer men on the board are proving their value. Among tho special acts of tbei board were the following: Tbe State Savings Bank at Harrison was continued as the depository of county funds. J. D. Dunwoodie waB appoint; ed, as he deserved, to succeed tstzo- selp as one of the superintendents of? the poor. The board appropriated S200 foi? tbes N. E, Development Bureau, tbes county's regular membership few., and' make tbe sum immediately available. A report of tbe expenditures of the Bureau will be askedl for, and if satisfactory another $20© may be voted in December. A. R. Canfield was re-elected- one of the directors Of the N. E.%Bnrea_r, his earnest work in this directum entitling bim to re-appointment. Wesley Cross of Temple was chosex_ as the director from Clare County- He is a good level-headed man apt- it is an excellent appointment. An appropriation of S1000 frs_. made to carry on the construction off the county house, which will probably put the roof on and protect the building from the weather. This sum is the limit tbe board can vote. O. H. Jones of Temple was cboe«_- member of the board of sebboH examiners. This is an excellent selection. Mr. Jones is a modest man- not inclined to push himself .forward for office, but is every way iraB qualified for the place. Supervisos- Cross of Redding (should be given credit for calling the board's attention to him. The special committee appointed! ia May to investigate salaries pmS county officers made its report- I_ ' does not reveal anything start-tog-. As a result the salaries of two officers were slightly increased, tbat. of the county treasurer from S900> i_. SI,000-and of county School com___vs- sioner from S600 to $650. The otbers remain the same as formerly. It bas not seemed advisable to put the officers on strictly a salary basis* btrfc fees are allowed. One result of tbe investigation has been to give tb® board a definite idea of the eB_s_z_- ments of the several offices. The following shows tbe present salary of each office, except of county offlcers serving per diem, and tbfi' average yearly income of eaeJ_ far the past five years.
