There is still an occasional merchant that needs watching. farmers most emphatically agreed that they are glad to see Olare grow, for With its growth their land all increases in value. Clare compares very favorable with surrounding towns in prices of local-merchants. A very fine oration was given by Miss Louisa "Walker. The attendance was large. Officers were elected aa follows: k President—P, M, Loomis. > Vice-president—Milo Lamphere. Secretary—James Marlin. Assistant sec'y.—J. H. Wilson., Treasurer—W. R. Lansing, Organist—Miss Edna Seeley.

Funeral services were held •from the Congregational church at Dover Tuesday and the body was laid to rest in Oherry Grove. Altha Lulu Nichols was born at Sylvania, Ohio, where her parents still survive.^* In- womanhood she became the wife of Burt Turner, Seven years ago they moved to the farm in Arthur. Industrious, devoted to home and family she was a genuine helpmate and a good neighbor.. Four boys ranging from 15 to eight years of age survive and great is the sympathy for husband and family. Two sisters, Mrs. G. J. „Keeney of Fargo, H. D., and- Mrs, Shaw of Milan and one brother, Frank, at the old home, also survive. This life is stricken down just in 'the height' of usefulness. Thus earth's sorrows touch us all with sympathy. 'ffliri.Tiiipii^ Jigs„ MeBain Chronicle.. Temple saloonists are doing all in their power'to- get liquor into tbis county and every day or two the Ann Arbor unloads a bunch of drunks at this station. The railroad company disobeys the laws in taking them a- bosrd at Temple, the saloonist disobey the laws in taking them up and the Olare county officials are negligent in their duty in allowing ouch •wholesale violations. Those who are responsible for this, ring the bell for their own |nnera.l every time the acts occur. Jt is sueh disregard that made loe.il option possible in Michigan and it Is a continuance of the practice by such ^lootsists as those at Temple that will bring: statewide prohibition.

The Countess of Warwick, who, with her husband, the Earl of Warwick, is coming to America, Is prominently identified with the woman suffrage movement in Europe, and is regarded as a strong ally of the radical element In England, with leanings to Socialism. It is said that her object in coming to the United States will be to study labor conditions, a subject in which she is keenly Interested. ■ But in due time somehow" it became advisable to utilize Citizen Tatman's experience and 'phone message fairly entreated him to go to the rescue. He went and didn't consult his supervisor either. Now it is in order for the "third ward supervisor boss" as he enjoys being called, to treat. . *** The right reverend Quinton Walker hath both won and lost a championship during his two months residence in Clare. His moving into the Methodist parsonage was simultaneous with the first falling leaves of autumn. Scarcely was the home settled when valiantly he seized a rake and in due time had removed every last dead leaf from church and parsonage lawn. Next morn ruthless winds had again carpeted the same spots witb still more beautifully dead leaves from neighbors' lawns. Undismayed again he repeated the raking. Thus the contest went on. between the preacher and Boreos, the god "of the winds. True he ocea^ Bionally pressed Quinton, Jr., into service to ease his blistered hands. But he won—at least each succeeding sabbath saw the spacious lawns with- I out trace of fallen leaves. With the advent bf November storms, however, the inexhaustable dead leaf ::v AtAlma November 6,'occured the marriage of Miss Susie, daughter of. ' Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Hampton of Sheridan, to Alexander Fick of this city. Friends of early days, this marriage has a touch of romance that. helps sweeten life's monotony. Both ate highly respected in the communities where they have lived. The Sentinel joins with many friends in heartiest congratulations. The Worrell Who Lets A Man Own HSs Soul is Blessed. The woman who understands the art of letting a man alone is a wise, woman, says Anne Rittenhodse ia The Designer for December. She treats him as a rational being, with equal rights to work out his own life* as "she has. If she thinks he i&wsrong^ she persuades him into another way wifh more subtle art than many kings* use in coercing a prime minister. If he wishes to walk alone in the afternoon or evening, hammering oub some scheme in his own mind, or refreshing himself by solitude, apart from things that make him think, she is acquiscent. And, mind you, she does not acquiesce moodily, with a question, spoken or unspoken, as to* what she has done that be does not care for her company. She cheerfully nods her perfect understanding: of his wishes and desires. She, toov often wants to be-alone, although sh» may love this man more than all the other things in the world combined, and he has always let her be when, the mood was upon her. To s^m it all up in a phrase that Americans understand: she treats him as though she were another man. There are moments for love, emotion and sentiment, but she understands that there are thousands of other moments when two humans, who must be together most of tbe time, must treat each other as if the;"*"- were of the same sex.
