The patrons of the office have every reason to believe that, the GREETED BY GHOSTS. Honor of Miss Sewell; in NO SPLITTING THE TICKET. Every Man on ihe Republican - Party Ticket Worthy of Support. Next Tuesday is election day. Forty-four states will select state and county officers. In Michigan the contest will be strong on Governor and probably on two congressmen. In this state a vote for senator and representative is a vote for or agait st Chas. E. Townsend asU. S. senator. The Sentinel presents a discussion of state candidates elsewhere in this issue. We can not see but that the republican nominees in the districts to whioh Clare oounty belongs, Dodds forOongress, Foster for the state senate and Cummins for the house, will be re-elected by handsome majorities even though this is an off year. There is no reason either in the men or the situation why they should not, In the county there is no contest on prosecutor, and all that is needed for that office is the formal announcement. The offices of circuit court commissioner and coroners go with the ticket, and of course there is no doubt on that score. Begarding the other officers there is more or less of a contest, though in several instances it is not very strenuous, and in no case should a republican hesitate a moment in supporting his party's nominee. Only by republican votes can any one on the opposition ticket be elected in Clare county. The gentlemen on the democratic ticket are individually excellent men, and it is a matter of regret that good men should be defeated, but they happen to stand for democratic ideals, and their success in county, elections would strengthen the democratic party in state and nation, and the people are hardly ready to go back to democratic conditions of Cleveland's time. Herewith is presented a brief summary of some of the republican county candidates. Part of this is a repetion, but facts always bear repeating. Foa Sheriff, Lew W. Sunday. Beferring to the sheriff, Lew W. Sunday is now serving his first term in that office. He has performed his duties fearlessly, conscientiously and economically. He is a farmer by these offices, combining as they do tbe duties of three offices in one, those of county clerk, register of What would yon do if a ghost with work of all the white and fluttering garments of the grave should meet and greet you when about to cross a friendly threshold? What if the ghost should deeds, and abstracts and title work,! be plural—three or four of them? will continue ,to be carried on in a \ Well, if you're a woman, you wonld proper manner.

But that is jnst patrons of the office, and the j what befell a • party of Clare'young public generally, as well as his atten- ladies, who assembled last Friday tion to every detail of the work, has •evening (note the unlucky'day) at satisfied the people of the county, the home of A.; E, LaPierre in the training, and is backed by tbe great farming interests of the county. He made a splendid record oh the board of supervisors, and is now making good as sheriff. Moreover, it is generally conceded that he is entitled to a second term. FOB 0-.EBK AND REGISTER OF DEEDS, Francis M. Morrissey. Francis M. Morrissey is the candidate on the republican ticket for re-election to tbe office of county *■* * * ■ _-_-_&___ f I •' TO * * T - ft? ■*? that it would be for the best to continue him therein. For Treasurer, Thos. S. Dorsey. Thos. S. Dorsey, candidate for the treasursbip, seems to meet with popular favor. As a painstaking and accommodating deputy treasurer he has evidently earned a warm place first ward. The occasion was a party given by Mies Emma LaPierre in honor of Miss Eska Sewell. Miss Sewell has 1 been employed for two years in the dress goods department of Wilson- Davy Co. She resigned her position to accept one at Auburn, Ind., which is near her home at Hamilton. In anticipation of the departure of this popular young lady Miss LaPierre, also employed at .Wilson-Davy's** gave the party, inviting a score of young lady friends for a farwell Halloween party. From the ghostly greetings at the door until the dispersal at the witching midnight hour ther>e was a series of surprises for the guests, and Miss LaPierre proved to be a royal entertainer. Ghosts were always in evidence. Among tbe numerous entertaining features were business with tbe treasurer's office. This county is wisely Kdisposed to continue his efficient service. For Surveyor, * kthur D. Johnson Arthur D, Johnson is a candidate for re-election ns Purveyor. He takes pride in his work, and is great demand borb_ in Olare county arid outside. Of late, besides the usual running out of boundary lines, Mr. Johnson bas been called to profile grades and estimate on cuts and fills for the state award and other in the regard of persons having tne "maid-of-the-mist fountain," where each maiden learned her fate, unique refreshment service, a mock wedding, music and dancing. The color scheme was yellow throughout With multitudes of Jack-o-lanterns, The girls present gave Miss Sewell jn j a handsome signet ring as a souvenir of the occasion. They all pronounced the party a "perfect success" and voted Miss LaPierre a charming hostess. p. clerk and register of deeds because the people of the county have by experience learned to trust him with that important office, and know that road work, in which work be is) quite proficient. We bave now in hand a letter received, from the state good roads department commending very highly his work in Clare county. A- mong other things State Commissioner Ely says that no criticism had ever gone out from his office in regard to Mr. Johnson's profiles. For Drain Commissioner, John W. Hampton. Last on the ticket, but by no means least in importance, is the county drain commissioner. John W. Hampton of Sheridan township is the republican nominee Mr. Hampton is a graduate of the hard but effective school of the mine and of the farm. He has helped to make Sheridan township one of the finest in Michigan. He is a man of sterling character, and is highly esteemed by. all who know him. He has not before been a candidate for county office, but has frequently been township treasurer and supervisor, proving himself one of the best officials the town has had. He is especially well fitted for the duties of drain commissioner. Mrs. Ira Bellinger. The death of Mrs. Ira Bellinger, occurred at her home in Bay Oity Monday, Oct. 24, after an illness of some length. Her funeral took place Wednesday following from the Hinkle school house, three miles west of Clare, with interment at Farwell, Bev. W. A. A. Shipway conducting the services. Mrs. Bellinger's maiden name was Florence Hinkle. She was born at Bichmond, Genessee (jounty, 49 years ago last February. When she Was eleven years of age her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Hinkle, moved to what became known as Hinkleville west of Olare. Twenty-seven years ago last May she was married to Ira Bellinger. As he was a railroad man, having been an engineer for many years, they went where his him, living at Clare, other points, and for years at Bay City. Mrs. Bellinger's parents and a brother died some years ago. Besides her husband she is survived by a brother, Fabian, and two sisters, Beulah and Elizabeth Hinkle, Mrs, Bellinger was a lady of splendid character, and was highly esteemed by every one who had the pleasure of her acquaintance.

We have a growing list at Harrison and near by towns, but* would like a hundred more names there. Let one of the contestants send in your name and your dollar. Chas. A. Hileman. Ohas. A.

Four years ago fired with a desire to strike out for himself and having a fancy for railroading, he made his way to Arkansas and entered the employ of the Iron Mountain road in the capacity of fireman. That he "made good" in this work is shown by the fact that his was the engine that drew President Taft over the division last year and Charles was the recipient of a letter from the division superintendent complimenting him on the efficient manner in which he performed his work on that occasion. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fireman and Engineers and two representatives of that organization accompanied the body home, bringing With them, several beautiful floral pieces, tbe loving tokens of the Brotherhood and of personal friend.. The funeral was held at the M. E, church in Harrison last Saturday, services by Bev. Fred G, Dunbar and interment in the cemetery afc that place. The sympathy of a large circle of friends and neighbors goes out to the sorrowing parents, relatives and friends. While it was not. theirs to hear his dying message, they have the consolation of knowing that he was bravely fighting the battle of life, respected and honored by«those witb whom his lot was castj that his last resting place- is to be near the old borne and that it may bfe theirs in the years to come to make> beautiful, the grave in which he> sleeps.
