Wm. H. Bicknell & Co. Picnic Shoes" for Women only 2.00 I I HEROIC FIGHT FOR LIFE Mrs. L. R. Gleason Spends Thirty Minutes in Ice . Water of Mill Pond. . Hands and Face Frozen but She is Again at Her Duties. In crossing the. mill pond at tha Callam & Cornwell electric power plant Sunday, Mrs. L. R. Gleasan stepped into a hole in the ice and, in spite of untold suffering and in the very face of death itself keeping up the pluckiest kind of fight for life, even when numb and hands frozen still calling for help and waving an arm- by sheer force of will, was finally rescued by the arrival of her-husband'and his father and mother. At 10:30 Sunday morning Mrs. Gleason started from her home at the dam tb go to church, taking a short cut <t across the ice on the mill pond. But some' men cutting ice the day before had failed to put up stakes indicating • where they had worked, and it was into a narrow lane cut by them that she stepped. She distinctly remembers going down thiv e times swallowing not a little water, and then succeeded in getting her hands to the edge of the ice to support herself. Throwing out prayer book and glasses to show her fate in case she was not rescued, she continued the struggle for life. For a considerable distance along she broke the thin ice, frozen during the night, in her endeavors to reach with a foot the top of the solid ice on the other side of the narrow channel and get herself out of the water, but loaded down with a heavy cape, all efforts were in vain. Getting weaker she. remained stationary, and the cloak freezing to the ice helped to ■ support her. Mrs Gleason had been notified over the 'phone of the church service and her husband was at his father's just across the pond , There as they were' hitching up a team, they thought they heard cries but paid no attention to them, and according to ""previous plan Mr. Gleason with his father and mother started to drive to his place, going across the pond. As tihey left the woods and drove onto tiie"Jo>d, they saw an arm waving out of the ice and speedily rushed to the rescue, getting Mrs. Gleason back to her home in forty minutes from the time she bad left, so that she was in the water about half an hour. In ten minutes Dr. Sanford was on the scene. Her hands were badly frozen with several finger nails torn from their roots, but strange._as it may seem, no very serious results followed. By Tuesday feeling began to return to the hands and the patient was able t o be up and to be doing a few odd things, such as the condition of her hands permitted. Mrs. Gleason is indeed thankful for her fortunate escape ahd her many friends rejoice that she.is.still preserved to them. Big Fire at Goieman., About half of the principal business block at Coleman was consumed last night by fire.' The loss is estimated at between $20,000 and $30,000. Ten business places were destroyed. The post office, the Coleman Independent and "Central" for the Union 'Phone Co. are out of commission. The fire originated in the billiard room of a saloon. About thirty percent of the losses are covered by insurance. ' • The fire department was practically helpless as the new hose, obtained with the new equipment, would not fit the hydrants. Finally sufficient old hose was found to reach the flre and it was * prevented spreading further. Allen-Clink. Miss.Lucy M. .Allen, daughter "of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Allen, and William Clink, son of Mrs. Joseph Cradit, both of West Grant were united in the bonds of marriage last evening at the • origregational parsonage at Farwell, Rev. Mr. Bullock officiating. Both the bride and groom are favorably known in the'community, where they have lived for the past twelve years* She has been a Sunday school teacher and both begin the new life with the best wishes of many friends.

Senator Doherty Gives Interesting Facts as iq the Island Republic. From a personal letter to the editor, written by Senator Doherty at tlie end of a week spent in Havana and the surrounding country, we glean a number of facts of interest "to' our readers. The party Of Glareites consisted of Mr. and Mrs, James Duncan and Senator and Mrs Doherty and son, Fred. They reached Havana February 3rd, leaving there on the loth, It is sufficiently warm to sleep at night, with very light covering and with windows open. Everything is strangely different from the home land. Houses are built with a court in the centre, and often many kinds of poultry and b rds and, in some cases other kinds of live stock too, are kept in the court. The sounds of various kinds of fowl mingle with the dreams of the guests at the hotel Mascottee, in the court around which the hotel is situated. Eooms are provided with two lofty door passages so as to be as cool as possible. Bread is baked in the form, of long roils and cut off, in chunks, of which the hard crust is the most notable.-thing.' Some of our party pined for a good square at home. Havana js a hustling city with good electric car service. Streets are, for the most part, narrow. Many of the walks, just foot paths, are only a foot or foot and a half wide. Many are the visitors to the wreck of the Maine in the harbor and some there are whose eyes betray traces of tears as they gaze on the site of the tragedy. The Cuban government has fresh flowers placed on the wreck daily. A visit to the grim, old MorrO Castle suggests thoughts of cruelty in' days when- Spain ruled with heartless tyranny. - ~A- visit to the country reveals a wonderful fertility of soil. Crude, however, is much of the agricultural. Cattle are pastured by being tied to posts by ropes. We-noticed every man and boy in the country carrying long knives and we wondered at first if that was an evidence of their fierceness but on inquiry we learned that the knives are used to cutsany animal loose that happens to get tangled up in its rope.

We are,glad to report that Mrs. Leonard,, who has been very sick, is recovering. Miss Gardis Hagle'ot Clare has accepted a position ia the post office here and handling the mail this week. My, what weather this is to remind the man who "stretcuea the truth" of what be has seen at some other time in his life. Elder Maxwell went to Gladwin on Monday afternoon to be gone half of the week. Rev. Maxwell occupied the pulpit ln Evart one evening last week, A delightful little gathering was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Bingham last Monday; evening, that being the anniversary of Mr3, B's birthday. The ninth and tenth grades of our public schools are having some good practice in debating. A public debate will soon be given on the big Panama question. . ■ . ■ The case ofpeople vs. George _Can> field for asaaulCaad battery on Sum Renner came up before justice Wait last Friday.

The one year old daughter of Watson Honeywell died last Saturday-Evening of lung trouble. Tne funeral was held in the Congregational church on Monday afternoon, Rev. Bullock officiating. The one year old daughter, of W. Weaver died Monday morning aUo of lung trouble. The funeral was held on Tuesday. The loss of these little ones is a sad'blow to both famil ies. The Congregationri. society gave their annual valentine social and e&» Echo of Teachers' Library Union Graft in 1902 Affecting ' Clare-Isabella Teachers. In 1902 from eighty to a hundred teachers in Clare and Isabella counties bit at an alluring bait held out by smooth agents, each signing a note for $12.50 in return for which they were to have accsss to-a regular course Of jreading. On investigation the scheme was repudiated by the teachers and each person got out of paying the note as best he could. Some paid it, i others dida't. The following will be of interest to the victims: ■••; "Before Justice Ulriclr Saturday Carson, Ealy &Co., hankers of Reese, lost in their suit against Miss Mable JETamed, a teacher, for the recovery of a 812.50 note given in connection with the Teachers' Library Union of Chicago, which ^ canvassed, .'in: Saginaw county and other Michigan points in 1902. Many' teachers In Saginaw county at the time were led into subscribing to a three' years' fteachers' library reading course, under fihe impression that a teachers' union was to be formed as well and a boycott placed on all teachers not in the union'. The conflicting stories told by the (different teachers solicited at tbe time shortly afterwafdsleiad to.a general,inquiry when it is found that the -Chicago company which had been ^interested in the enterprise had sold the notes obtained without recourse-.to 'Carson, Ealy & Co., of' Reese.' .Tlie teachers- generally refused to tecogfaize ,the obligation imposed in the notes and the "suit before Justice Ulrlch Saturday is, a test case brought preparatory to' suing on all of the notes. .Thff jury of four men Saturday brought a verdict of ho-cause of action. ' At a previous trial of the casi? tlie .jury disagreed*""
