Ten Families Quarantined, Exposed by a Woodsman-- a Warning. From our correspondent at Temple we learn that ten families are in quarantine from exposure to small pox. Frank Bradley came home to spend Christmas from a camp, that rumor says, was already quarantined. He was sick at the Christmas eve dance, but doctors said not enough to give the disease. But Sunday night he was at church and on the street and continued to move hither and thither Monday forenoon till taken charge of by the proper authorities. Then it was deemed best to quarantine ten families that had been exposed. This precaution was taken with the view of preventing, if possible, any farther spread of the disease. There is, however, a decided feeling that quarantine regulations should have been enforced right at first and thus there would not have been so many families exposed. This small pox .case at Temple should be another reminder to all our people for prompt enforcement of quarantine upon all persons exposed to small poxi One person affected with the disease, if permitted to go at large, may expose a whole community and be the means of carrying the dread disease into hundreds of homes. Let every precaution be taken and every regulation rigidly enforced to prevent in this section a repetition 'of the experiences of three winters ago. Successful Banquet. The Lewis Cass Club records its second annual dinner given in Clare .ast Thursday evening as a most successful affair Both the eatables and the oratory furnished were' most thoroughly relished. President Mus- cott introduced C. W. Perry as toast- master who gracefully presided. The principal address of 'the evening was made by Congressman Lucking, advocating the question of imperialism as the main issue for the coming .campaign. '. Other speakers were Frank L. Fowler of Manistee, L. T. Hemans of Masohand State Chairman Barkworth of Jackson. Nella Long Concert. The concert given at the opera house Wednesday evening under the auspices of the Guild was most creditable to all concerned. A fineaudience greeted the appearance of Miss Long as a violinist who but six years ago was one of Clare's girls and she with the others participating acquitted themselves in a way to -excite the favorable comment of those present. The piano solos by Mrs. O. M. Sutherland and Hazel Alward were very cordially received as were the vocal solos by the Misses Grace Giberson and Mabel Townsend. The club swinging by O. M. Sutherland with electric light effects at the end of the clubs was a decidedly novel and enjoyable feature. Miss Long's playing on the violin showed her to be an artist of marked ability which, years of study and careful training has developed to a high degree. She more than met the expectations of friends and her performance was most favorably received. There is a touch of interest connected with the earlier days of Miss Long's career. About eight years ago her father came to Clare as pastor of the Cong'l church, and Miss Long, then a young girl, finding an old violin in the attic of the house they occupied, began.the study and the practice upon the instrument she has since learned to love so well. The old' violin has been replaced by another one but she no donbt still remembers the old instrument from which she took her .first lesson. Nurse Sips—Smallpox Patient Escapes. From Mt. Pleasant comes the information that about a week ago an Indian was found in a small boarding house affected with smallpox. The city council immediately provided a pest house in the extreme north part of town arid- moved the patient there and provided a nurse named Simon. | One day, however, a bottle of alcohol was sent out for medical purposes. .The nurse partook somewhat freely, . perhaps to fortify against the disease, arid soon was'in dreamland. When he awoke the smallpox' stricken patient had departed, and as far as is I known, is still at large. CARRIER ESCAPES INJURY. Suggestions for Aiding R. F. D: Carriers. TheTfforse of the mail wagon for route number three when coming in for mail Tuesday morning in charge of substitute carrier, G. C. Leibrand, shied and, suddenly drawing the wagon up onto a snow bank, tipped it over. In the" mix up the horse broke loose, smashing a thill and the front end of the wagon. In such an accident the mail wagon" is not a safe place to be and it was fortunate for the occupant in, this case that the horse readily broke loose. Mr. Leibrand was thankful .to escape unhurt. The wagon was soon patched up ready to resume work for the day. . . From the carriers we learn that snow bank incidents and "tip-overs" are not unknown by them and they surely are earning their small salary of $600a year, that sum paying a car-' rier and his two horses. At least patrons ought to aid in every way possible in keeping a road to boxes. Here area few suggestions for aiding the carrier: Don't ask the carrier to "wait- just a moment" while you write a postal or address a letter. Don't allow horses to stand tied in front of your mail box, for we * cannot deliver your mail if you do. Don't ask for a ride. They are not allowed to carry passengers and * will refuse.- ■ Don »t ask for mail along the road. • Don't ask the carrier to pick pennies out of the mail box every time you mail a letter. Buy stamps and have them on hand. It don't cost any more and saves us much time.- Be sure that your name is plainly printed on your box., " *._.. Don't forget to oil the mail box. ■ .-, Don't open mail until you are sure'it is yours, as they are liable to mistakes. Don't* forget to give your subscription for papers to the mail ^carrier. He will give you as good rates as anybody. ■ • -DA VY & COMPANY' EVERYTHING TO WEAR LOWEST PRICES Crowds Pork roasts eight cents a pound' at Bicknell & Fletcher's. Are Taking Advantage of the.

At an early hour Tuesday morning Alfred Louch, one of Clare's old residents, departed this life at the age of fifty-eighty death being caused by an over-dose of morphine. The funeral will occur from the home Sunday afternoon under charge of the Masonic order of. which deceased was a number. • Alfred Louch was born at London, England, in 1846 and when young accompanied his parents to Clear Creek, Ontario. Thirty years ago" he moved to Clare where he has followed the blacksmithing business, being known here as a skilful mechanic. Besides a wife he leaves two sons, Percy, of Cadillac and G. T. of Clare, Jand one daughter, Mrs. Myra McCanty, of»this city. His mother, four brothers and four sisters also survive him one of whom is our townsman, James Louch, and nearly all the others reside in Ontario. Deceased was a member of the Maccabees and Masons and the deepest sympathy of a large circle of friends is with the widow and the family in the hour of sorrow. Clare County Circuit Court.

USE FOR PINE STUMPS, Possible Solution of Problem of Clearing Cut Over Lands. Russians Near Hinckley, Minnesota, Actually Making Profit From It. On the authority of the Duluth Herald a boon to the < -vners of uncleared land in thewil.u of Northern Minnesota is believed to !:avecome in the solution of the problem of. clearing land free of charge; and it is possible that the farmers may be advanced a little lucre for. allowing their property to be cleaned'of the remnants of the mighty pine forests. Eleven miles east of Hinckley there was established, three months since, by a party of Russian Jews, an industry which makes possible from the removal and carting away of stumps, a lucrative industry. The plant' is not a large one, in fact, the whole thing is operated by three men and represents but a small ontlay ■ of money.1 When the representatives of a campany visited Hinckley and presented the proposition of clearing up all of the land in that vicinity, free of any cost, ex-, cept that of getting established, there was a mighty furore created among heavy land owners, who had long been computing on the problem of getting their land cleared at $30 or more per acre. As it did not cost much to establish the plant, the people decided to take a.chance, and they did. Now a large area of land has been divested of every stump and is ready for the plow. ' The stumps which are being taken from the land are hauled to the plant arid' split into chuncks. These chuncks are placed into large retorts, or boilers, • where' they are. gradually heated. At a certain temperature, the turpentine that is in the wood flows-downward and into a pipe, and from there into a still'. At a greater temperature the tar from the wood goes into a pipe and thence into a still oh the opposite side of the retort* Then the heat is"increased, and what remains of the wood is converted into charcoal. The charcoal, which is contained in the basket in which, the wood was held in place is then removed by means of a derrick and thrown into a storehouse. The two retorts are now in operation, working twenty-four hours. In a short time two additional retorts will be constructed. ' Each retort will hold a cord of wood, which is capable of producing sixteen gallon of refined turpentine," thirty gallons of refined tar and thirty bushels of charcoal. As it takes about five days for a cord of pine stumps to be boiled out, it wi*l be seen that the monthly output of the little plant is about ninty-six gallons of refined turpentine, 180 gallons of refined tar and 180 bushels of refined charcoal. . ' Although just recently established, the company, which has taken the name of the "Standard Tar and Turpentine company," has found a ready market for all of its output. A wholesale drug company of St. Paul is endeavoring to make a contract for all or the tar oil,.turpentine, and .a contract has already been made for the disposition of all of the charcoal to a smelting company in Montana. Manager Capilvitz jof the company says that his father, and even back to his great-great-grandfather followed the same, occupation as the One at which he is employed and that there is really nothing experimental about it. . ' - Four Silos for Clare County. Contracts have just been entered into with the Kalamazoo Silo Co. for the construction of three silos in' Arthur township and one in Grant ranging, -in value from $180 to $400. L. W- Sunday is to.place one on his farm fourteen feet in diameter and thirty, feet high; J. IT. Brand one eighteen feetr in diameter and thirty feet high; A. P. Brewer one twenty-nine feet in diameter and thirty two feet high and the Saginaw Beef Co. one twenty-nine feet in diameter, and thirty-two feet high. The only silo .previously built in Clare county was the one on Dr. L. L. Kclley's farm east of •Farwell. which was consumed by fire some time ago with the barns. But the installing of these silos in the country northeast of Clare Is another evidence of its agricultural resources' ahd we' doubt. not that other silos will in the near future^ be added there. Mt.
