THAT LOOMIS DRAIN. but the undertaking, when completed, will do much to hasten forward the •agricultural development of a large Ensures Full Development of a, area of richest farm lands. m^llXo^t^ Gleaned From Isabella Doings. out oF Business. Sbeoherd is to erect a new school The complete development of large areas of Isabella's agricultural lands demand the elaboration of systems of drainage of no inconsiderable .importance. In recent ye-irs several important undertakings have been in progress. Among these the drain from the north branch of the Chippewa into the townships of Deerfleld, INot- tawa and Gilmore, eleven miles in length, is important, but even that is to be but a main from which numer- our branches are to originate. The letting of the Loomis drain also means much to a large area of land in Wise township with areas in Vernon and Sheridan. The total length of this drain is to be 2,662 rods. It is let to Albert Eeed of Midland for $5.10 per rod, making the contract price $13,576.20. But the total cost to be levied on land to be benefited and supposed to be benefited wili'be about 817,000. To the contract price must be added the cost of two steel bridges about 1,000 cost of survey, advertising, etc., as well as a ten per cent levy extra added to meet deficiencies arising from .non-payment of taxes. The tax levy will be a heavy burden on many farmers. For example, the amount charged up to A L. McDonald's 160-acre farm is three per cent of the total amount or $510. J. W. Maxwell's eighty will have to stand for $340 and his forty acres- for $42.50. Some forties will have to pay one and one-fourth per cent or about $212 and the opinion held by good conservative farmers is that some of the poorer farmers will have to do exceedingly well during the next three years to be able to retain their farms. It seems hard that in the very face of the mdst strenuous ■ industry some farms will have to be abandoned for taxes but such seems to be the probability in this case.- Taxes not .-ultimately raised from an> lands assessed for the construction of the drain, will, ii: iri excess of the extra ten per cent mentioned above, be levied back on the other lands benefited by the drain, Some farmers will indeed find the Loomis drain tax: a very great burden Shepherd is to erect a new building at a cost of $18,000. Circuit court is in session again this week, grinding out civil cases. The Bell 'Phone Co. is pushing its lines from CJareput into the northern townships of Isabella. Tuese are the days of caucuses, but the politicians almost despair of the worst roads being opened up by town meetin' day. Many farmers who have fed quail and even partridge this winter think thpy ought to be allowed to have 'one or two of them when the bird season comes next fall. Tbe powers that be at tbe county jail heaved a sigh of relief Sunday wben they saw Sberiff Baily returning with tbe man, Tognetti, who escaped from tbe'tn'the day before. Col. J. W. Boynton's activity at Greenville on the proposed new railroad tb pass through the county is bringing forth audible sighs of lunging for the street "kara" in the coun'y Mt. P>easant city dads give t!>e city fire department a severe i-istie resulting in reducing the membership from sixteen to eleven, even leaving off chief Law. ' The salary -of these men is $40 per yeaiV It Js learned that of tbe whole bunch of Isabella county men, who have been homesteading land in Idaho, only two have been successful in get- .t-ing'their application for claims fJlecl and accepted in the local biud office. The others are on railroad land and '.heir filed claims have been rejected. Thos. J" Root and Bert ScbneJl were the fortunate ones, Tbey will have to hold down their claims for fourteen mouths longer and then can get a deed by paying $200. It cost $16 a piece' to file the applications. An Oriflno paper says the rejected claims' men are going to put up a law suit and try and get possession pf the coveted lands in that way —Northwestern Tribune. **DAVY & COMPANY EVERYTHING TO WEAR, LOWEST PRICES 3; W Table Linens.

Tognetti Nabbed in Clare Saturday and Taken back to - Mr. Pleasant. The jury in the case Of Charles Tognetti, charged with burglary at Mt. Pleasant, disagreed at his trial, .He, consigned to languish in Isabella's home for special characters, accidentally took French leave of kind friends last Saturday morning and hiked it out of town. The man in charge of prisoners in the jail, supposing a deputy on duty be ow, permitted the prisoner ts go get some wood ahd he improved the opportunity to make his exit. Sheriff Bajley, suspecting his man would go north, notified Fight Police Dwyer and himself came on to Clare. About seven in the evening the Sheriff and the Fight Police met their man on Fourth street but did not recognize bim till after he passed. A lively race ensued, resulting in a general mix-up in the snow. Dwyer snatched * away the fellow's revolver and soon the would-be escaped prisoner was helpless in the hands of his two captors. Later he stated that he had been given a razor and a revolver the evening before his escape. After getting out of Mt. Pleasant in the seclusion of some woods, using snow for lather he managed to cut off his mustache, hoping thereby sufficiently to disguise himself to make good his escape. He accompanied sheriff Bailey back to Mt. Pleasant Sunday and in the interim till his next trial has plenty of time to meditate on his thrilling little episode. On Tbe Boom. The annual meeting of the Stock- ho.ders of the Union Telephone Company was held in Alma, Mich., on Tuesday, March 15, 1004. There was a large attendance of stockholders and the reports of the Secretary and General Manager of the business done in the past year were ..very encpuraging. These reports showed a growth over the entire system of nearly 1,000 'phones, a large part of which was in Gratiot, Clfnton and Shiawassee counties, an exchange havjng been built during the year at Durand with 274 Subscribers installed. Few exchanges were also installed at Freeland, Mid- dleton, Linden, Barryton. etc. The exchanges of Alma, Ithacia, St. Louis, Mt Pleasant, Owosso, Clare, St. Johns, Ovid, Corunna and Bancroft have been enlarged as the number of patrons desiring service have far outgrown the original installation. The business of the "Union Company has much more than doubled during the past two years and they are now operating 1,700 miles of toll line and have over 4,008.subscribers on their system with upwards of 200 orders unfilled. Considerable work has been laid out for the coming season in the shape of building new toll lines, installing several new exchanges as well as enlarging a number of the present exchanges. The following is a list of the Directors and officers elected at this meeting for the ensuing year:-- F. G. Thiers, Mt. Pleasant; J*. W. Robinson, Vestaburg; O. W. Gale, Owosso; J" T.

DOINGS OF CITY PADS, Those Measley Quarantine Regulations—Election officers Chosen. In addition to transacting considerable routine business at their meeting last evening the city council as a board of health considered the question of quarantine regulations as to the present epidemic of, measles. It was shown that measles in Clare were directly traceable to laxness of officers in certain other places in not enforcing quarantine regulations. Twenty- one'families havebeen quarantined in Clare but only two families are now afflicted, while in neighboring towns the epedemic made such headway that the public schools had tb be closed as in Coleman where 125 families were afflicted. After learning'the facts in the case both mayor and aldermen expressed the unanimous opinion that Health Officer Reeder was acting in accordance with the instructions of the state board of health and in accord with what they thought ought to be done in stamping out the disease. In support of enforcing quarantine regulations it was pointed out that during 1003 there were, apart frorn eight cases of German measles and two or three cases of consumption and typhoid fever, only three or four cases of dangerous communicab'e diseases in the city and, these being isolated, the d isease d ■ d. not spread farther. Officials required by law for the coming"spring election were chosen as follows: Election commissioiters A. W. Mftlntyre. Wm. Laundra. Henry Ort. •Inspectors of Election. -J. L. Welch.
