Our county Solons completed their work Friday evening, accepting necessary bonds for the county officers elect, wrangling enough over bills to make things interesting and "referring" the matter of enlargement of the court house No action was taken on the proposed new township. A resolution was passed urging Senator Doherty and Representative-elect Kelley to use their best endeavor to have the Saginaw county law relative to the drain commissioner made appli- , ' cable to Clare county. This law lim- . its the power of the commissioner so that under certain conditions he cannot start an important drain without consulting the board of supervisors. / This move is said to be an echo of the ,.jb present drain controversey northeast „. of the city. One new face appeared at this session of the board, Supervisor Frary of Greenwood, vice Wm. Smith resigned to spend the winter in the west. The court house enlargement was . referred to the building committee with power to secure plans, specifications and estimates for the proposed enlargement. The plan as recommended by Judge Dodds is to extend the building to the north removing the present ante-room at the north end of the court room, and in the addition have the proper consulting " rooms and one for the judge. Such an addition will give room for extension of the vaults needed for county records. 7 Rural Parcels Post? Fourth Assistant Postmaster-General Bristow proposes to assist local retailers with a parcels post. Packages mailed from the offlce at which a rural route starts may be sent for three cents a pound to anyone on that route the limit of weight being five pounds. A special label for local rural delivei*y must be attached to such packages. V* It is believed that this new service will give country merchants an advantage over the mail-order houses.™ Printers' Ink. ... The postmaster, general furthur says that the rate of three cents per pound would be ample fenumeration for: the department, because there is no expense for railway transportation, and the system by which these packages are to be delivered is already established, and such delivery would entail no additional expense upon the department. A special stamp could; be provided for this class of mail matter. Nathan E. Bauder. At the age of thirty-seven N. E. Bauder died injthe second ward Saturday from consumption.

POULTRY EXHIBIT. - To Be One of the Features at the Farmers' Institute Jan. 19-20. In addition to the talented speakers who are to appear at the Farmers' Round-up institute in Clare, it ii planned to have a poultry exhibit. Tbis industry is one of growing importance here. During the fall according to a conservative estimate over $10,000 worth of various kinds of poultry has been sold from the surrounding country. Any who have thoroughbred poultry are invited to place a coop on exhibition for the institute. President^ Thompson of Sheridan and John Northon of Vernon, both of whom have the Bell 'phone, have the arrangements in charge and will be glad to consult with interested parties in regard to the exhibit. Negotiations are in progress to secure the services of a competent poultry judge The purpose of this exhibit is to impress poultry growers with the superiority of the pure bred fowl from the standpoint of profit. As the poultry' improves so will Clare improve as a market for-poultry and all growers will be benefited. Mt. Vernon Granger Honored. G. O. Leibrand has again been appointed one of the general supervisors of Grange work. His district super vision consists of Clare, Osceola, Grand Travers, Benzie, Manistee, Wexford, Missaukee, and Mecosta counties. >This district being such a large one, he is given an assistant, A. A. Horton, of Mecosta. The committee of supervision have planned this year for an early conference in each county of delegates to State Grange, Pomona, officers and masters of subordinate granges, at which conference plans will be made for the year's work. It is a tribute to Mr. Leibrand to receive such an appointment for a second year and to be given a district much larger than that of last year.

Improvements in Various Town-r . ships during the Year 1904.' • , Thlj-d Article. A number of our readers have expressed their appreciation of the Sentinel's attempted review of improvements during the past year. To. those previously given for A,rthur should be added the following for the north part of the township kindly furnished by a resident there: Site purchased, Jot cleared, and a new school house erected on section four, Earnest Wallace being director for the district. On section five Geo. Lewis, having bought 400 acres, has erected thereon a new frame house and is now getting out material for a barn 40x80. On section seven a new house and barn have been erected; David Ohristianson has bought forty acres and is improving the.same. J. Godkins has fenced eighty acres also J. T. Balsley forty acres on the same section. Roads have improved and much interest is shown by all settlers in the locality. There is less than two sections pf state land in the township. These along with what has been previously given show hojv rapid is Arthur's development In the enumeration of Hatton's improvements W» C. Oornwell's summer cottage was omitted as also was Wm. Fritch's new frame house on section twenty-five. LINCOLN. • Some stumping, clearing and breaking new ground has been in evidence during the year, but improvements have been general rather then specific. J. W. Sutton and L. D. Estey have made contributions to this work and Wm. Kube has built a fine 40x60 gambrel roof barn with basement. Some road work has been done and the county is aiding in this. GARFIELD.

At Lake S. Sch- emerhorn.has built a frame house: Tract Shippey on section fourteen a house as also has Wm. Smith one on section twenty-five. Six new settlers are recorded. WINTERFIELD. This township already has a number of modern hom.es, reproductions of some of which were given in these columns some months ago. Now efforts are being put forth to secure rural free delivery. On sections 19, 21, 28 and 29 marked development has gone forward this year, on section twenty-two Miles Davis has constructed a 36x48 gambrel roof barn with basement while on twenty-eight C. E. Youdanhas erected one with circle roof, 40x60. Winterfieid Methodists are now spending several hundred dollars on the fitting up of a church. A rural 'phone company has been organized and it is hoped in the spring to be in direct connection by way of Marion. » SURREY. During 1904 material improvement has been made on the state road north and south and west toward Lake. Cement culverts are not being, built as new ones are needed and at the' present rate the old style ones will all be replaced with permanent ones. J. L.
