I 1 ■ ■>.■■■ i GRUSHED TO DEATH. Wm. J. Clement Meets Death Under Circus Train. Friday night as the Wallace show was being loaded on the Ann Arbor railroad some of the workmen of the show "vjrere startled by the screams of a man. On investigation it was found that one of their number had been run over as the train backed. His body was frightfully mangled, both legs having been cut of, both arms cut off and his head badly cut and mangled. He was dead when pulled out from under the train. From circus authorities ' it was found that his hame was W.' J. Clement and that his home was in Davenport, Iowa. The remains were placed in charge of undertaker J. E. Doherty, after it was decided that an inquest was unnecessary, and a message was Sent to the unfortunate man's mother. She at once wired to have the remains of her son sent to his home. It seems that no one saw the accident and it is supposed the man was overcome from a loss of sleep and the train backed upon him. It is the opinion of undertaker Doherty, who embalmed the body, that the mah was "not intoxicated at the time of the accident. LABE'S POPULATION. the An Increase of 87 Since Census of 1900. The Sentinei. this week is able to give the official figures of the census taken in June. The population of Clare is as follows: First Ward Second Ward Third Ward 269 680 464 1,413 <: Total This is an increase of 8T over the cenSus of 1900, a total population of 1,326. This with the 200 or more over tbe county lin6 which, properly belongs to Glare in almost every sense except when' the census enumerator comes around brings the actual population up to lt613, Water Works Proposition. Some weeks ago the Kiggs-Sherman Company of Toledo took up a contract to make a survey of the city and make a plat to be used to regulate the water works mains, sewerage and sidewalks. This plat was to have been delivered by July 5th, but for some reason the company have delayed. Mayor Lacy has written them hurrying up the matter and as soon as the plat can be procured the council will vote to submit a bonding proposition to the people for a new water works system. Just which of the taked of plans for a new water supply improvement will be submitted to tha voters, the Sentinel has not learned, bub extension of the pipes, capacity and a surer water supply will be afforded whichever plan is finally adopted. Rural Carriers' Schedule Appointed. The new salary schedule for rural mail carriers has been completed. The new Schedule applies from July 1. The last Congress raised the maximum .salary from $600 to $720 a'year. It was found that the maximum route was twenty-four miles long and to carriers on routes of this length numbering about 12,000, the maximum salary will be paid. The salaries of carriers on routes shorter than the maximum was fixed by deducting $18 for each mile less than twenty-four. The net result has been that slightly over two-thirds of the whole force of 24,500 rural carriers have received increases of S100 a year in their ..salaries.. The remaining carriers have received increases of less than this amount. This takes into consideration the expense for the equipment and makes What is stated to be a liberal allowance for such expense to carriers on routes less than the maximum length. It leaves about the same appropriation available-foi^Vicjv, service during the' coming year that the department had daring the last fiscal year. The P. M. Buys Two Roads, The Ohicago Inter-Ocean is authority that the Pere Marquette railroad company have bought the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton and also the Chicago, Cincinnati and Louisville railroads, the transactions having taken place last week. The company have just' placed an order for 5,000 new freight cars and forty heavy locomotives. •Davy & Company .j along and only two "steepers" vwere found on the streets the next morning. The Wallace sho-vv seldom stops at a town the size of Clare, and it certainly speaks well for us that a show like this one should decide to make this point. Those who have seen Eing- ling's, Barnum & Bailey's or Fore- paugh & Sells Brother's big shows are saying that the only difference between these and Wallace's is that Wallace has not such a quantity, but as a whole, considering the money vested, Wallace ranks up with best of them. in- the BIG MAGGABEE PICNIC.

Tlie Waiiace Circus, Perhaps xhe event of the average boy's summer vacation has come and gdne, viz: the Wallace show. We are informed that so strong was thfe* desire of several east Fifth street; youths(?) to see the circus as it pulled in at the-union depot that they agreed to sit up all night, but getting sleepy toward two a. m., they retired j Setting a spasmodic alarm clock .and hanging it at the head of the one most wakeful, a regular network of strings being formed-, tied from big toe to big toe all over the neighborhood. The show was drawn on a train ot twenty six extra long cars,—-about dbuble the length of the ordinary car,— arriving oyer the Ann Arbor at abpiit 15:30 a. m. The parade was\a good one ahd the performance was ih every respect high class, Few fakirs were Tlie Big Race Meeting. Secretary Cutting has again been given charge of the Saginaw races and announces dates from August 9th • to 12th. The very, late seasons in Michigan the past few years has put- back horses in their Speed work, with everything else, and it is felt that the August dates will result in a greater entry list, although Saginaw has. always enjoyed big fields and most excellent races. A program that will appeal to horsemen has been offered as follows: . Trotting: *2:40-$300, 2:35-$400, 2:28-S400, 2:25-8400. 2:23-8400, 2:21— $400, 2:18—$400, 2:12-$400. Pacing: *2:40-$300, 2:35-8400, 2:28 —$400. 2:25-«400, 2:23—8400, 2:19— $400,2:16—$400,"2:12—$400, Free-for-all —$400. *The '40 Classes will be in the nature of Consolation Classes in so far as the en i ries are concerned. . The pu rses will be ,8300; conditions the same as other classes, but horses winning in fasi er classes at'this meeting will not be eligible to the '40 class events. Central Michigan Association Will Hold Forth at Ithaca August 3 and 4, 1904. Every Knight and lady in the Central Michigan Maccabee Association should make it a point to attend the annual games and picnic, which will be held at Ithaca,- Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 3 and 4. Ithaca Maccabees never do anything by halves, and those who attend will be assured the time of their lives. ® The keys of the city wil 1 be del ivered over to the .visitors. There will be all sorts of games, a monster parade, and fun galore. There will be prizes for the best drilled tents, etc. The Central Michigan Association is made up of the counties of Midland, O are, Isabella and Gratiot. Portions of Saginaw, Shiwassee, Clinton and Montca'm bordering the district will take. part, and invitations are extended to all knights and ladies and their friends in the whole state Of Michigan, to attend as guests of the association. Hon. K. S. Searl is president' Of the Association, and the committees having in charge the details of the gigantic affair are the .picked men of the city, everyone of them being a hustler.

As I am going away for a vacation before commencing fall business these hats will go at remarkably low prices in the following dates, Commencing July 23d, Ending August 6th. Mrs. G. W. Forward. le Hay Crop, Central Michigan is noted for the abundance of its hay crop and grazing lands, and now just as the farmers are finishing up their haying .it is found that this section Of Michigan produces a crop of'hay which is considerable be-, yond the average. The weather too, has been such that the crop has been well taken care of and will be practically free from must. It is thought that because of the disadvantage they had in selling short last fall and hav^ ing tb buy hay this spying, few farmers will sell close this fall. Lost An Eye. Some time ago Mrs.. Margaret McKay, now living at the home of her daughter; Mrs. Sam Loomis, in Vernon had an operation performed on her right eye when a cataract was removed. Last week she fell, striking the eye against a chair. The coats' Of the eye being in a weakened condition the fall produced a rupture and the aqueous humor leaked through. Dr. Pullen of Mt. Pleasant was called and it having been necessary, the eye ball was..fembved Saturday Evening. At this writing the patient is getting along nicely. * Sunday School Picnic. The tri-county S. S. Picnic for August 2nd to Bay Port promises to be largely attended. Faje for the round trip is $1.00, children half price.
