Ithaca Herald. * Mr. and Mrs. George Wells have gone to Clare, where Mr. Wells will take charge of the business of the Olare Furnace Co. of which he is secretary. Mr. H. B. Wells the president of the company, remains in Ithaca for two or three weeks to tin ish up some business here. As soon as the building at Olare is ready to occupy, he too will remove to that place. The new company are building a fine two story brick building, 60x80 feet. The second story is 50x60 feet. The building stands on one and one- fourth acres of ground, just north of the Althouse plant and on both Ann Arbor and Pere Marquette sidings. Mr. Wells informs the Herald that they intend to put in a stock of iron sufficient to last two years and run . full blast. The Wells' furnace seems to give excellent satisfaction where- ever used. While rejoicing in the , excellent outlook for a largely increased business in their new location, the Herald greatly regrets that Mr. Wells and his son and their excellent families should remove from our midst Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Wells are among the earliest settlers of .Ithaca having come here in the early 60's. He has been continuously engaged in manufacturing and won high regard for honorable business methods Mr. George Wells, his son, after completing the course at' Ithaca high school was a student at Alma college, Mt. Pleasant Normal, the engineering department of the state Agricultural college and one of the most practical large concerns in the East. ■ His wife is a graduate of the Mt Pleasant normal school and has for the last year had charge of the musical instruction in Ithaca schools, where she has made a record for efficiency seldom equalled. The Herald congratulates the people of Clare on the construction of this new enterprise and on t\ie accession of two excellent families to their citizenship. Better yourself 1 Study iu the Inter* national schools. A very pretty wedding occured Saturday, September 17th, at high noon when MissKIara A., younger daughter of Mrs. Bertha Bruske, was united in marriage with Rev. Ernest A. Rayner of Mt. Vernon, Iowa, Dr. A. F Bruske of Alma college officiating. Miss Louise Bruskeusister of the bride, attended as bridesmaid and Asa H. Aldrich of Harrison as best man, while Gertrude Hornung completed the bridal party carrying the wedding ring daintily hidden in the petals of a rose. Just preceding the entrance of the bridal party Miss Louise Bruske sang the beautiful and appropriate solo "O Promise Me" which was followed by the entrance of the bridal party to the strains of Lohengrin's Wedding March played by Mrs. James G. llox- burg and the wedding service wliich was most impressive. Immediately following the ceremony Mendelssohn's Wedding March was playedduring the rendition of which congratulations and best wishes were showered upon the happy couple and the company were served with a dainty luncheon. The home was decorated prettily with wild clematis, l'erus and palms. A bower of clematis was formed beneath which the bridal party stood during the ceremony. The, bride was gowned beautifully in white panne silk trimmed in fine clury lace and made with full skirt and shirred -waist, and carried a shower bouquet of white sweet pea*-. Her going-a way-gown was of navy blue which was most becoming:. The groom wore conventional black. Mrs Rayner has spent the best part of her life in Clare and is known as one of the city's most respected young ladies and successful teachers. She is a graduate of the high school and besides having taught here she has also taught in the Cheboygan schools. Later she completed a, special course at the Thomas "Normal Training School in Detroit and the past two years has been supervisor of jnusic and drawing in the schools in Madison, N. J., where she and Rev, Rayner,,became acquainted. " ' ' Mr. Rayner has had many years of schoolastic training being a,. graduate of the Mt, Vernon school and Cornell college of Iowa and last June was graduated from the Drew Theological Seminary. The esteem in which Rev. and Mrs. Rayner are held was attested by the beautiful gifts which they received from far and near, these consisting of cut glass, silverware, linen, china and many other useful and ornamental articles. The newly wedded couple left on the four o'clock train for Detroit and from there they go to Dunbury, Penn., where he is engaged as assistant pastor in a large and growing Methodist pastorate. The out of town guests were Miss Marian Eord of Ludington and Mrs. Thomas Paton Powers of Saginaw, cousin of the bride.

Davy & Company DEMOCRATIC RULE, 1891-2. Were a Pack of Political Wolves, Said the Detroit Free Press. Clare ,and Isabella in Three Years Receive from the State $34,000 More Than They Pay State Taxes. Our esteemed contemporary in its issue of September 16th takes exception to the Sehtinel's statement that tbe democratic administration ot 1891-2 (misquoted a9 1901-2) was disastrous to the state, and by juggling Qgures demonstrates^evidently to its satisfaction, that the people were fools to kick the democrats out of power the very first chance they nob, at the end of two years. But no less a democratic authority than the Detroit Free Press has in its issue of May 20th, 1902, this editorial comment on that administration. The democratic oarty'sent to Lan- siutr the most extraordinary aggrega- tlbn of political accidents tbat ever assembled uuder the dome ot a State capitol. Nothing that Populism ever achieved In Kansas or Nebraska surpassed in picturesque variety and bewildering imbecility this horde, of famished democrats that went up to the cauital to make laws for Michigan. The dem'cratic administration that ohe people of Michigan iWugh-j down un themselves knesv a9 little about honesty as it did about government. The chief executive was a man above reproach, butwholly unfitted temperamentally to deal with the pack of pnli- "CIcijI wolves that accompanied him to Ihe e'eat of government. Asa result, the State of Michigan was given an administration that resembled nothing else so much as it' resembled a nightmare complicated with delirium tremens. Even until this day disgusted republicans strongly tempted to vote the democratic State ticket have recalled that Legislature, and swallowing their wrath, haye voted their ticket straight." Does not such an arraignment justify the Sentinel's very mild 'statement tbat the democratic administration of 1891-2 was "disastrous" to the statp? (Continued Next Week.)

Dear friends: Heathenism has no redeeming features. However much some may enlarge Upon the Divine Spark in the unregenerate heart, they seem to prefer to live away from the cruelty and ignorance that exist in a heathen land. Eecently I found an excited crowd upon our streets in this city of the far interior of China. I approached to learn the cause of their excitement, to And a helpless woman of perhaps eighty years, blind and severely wounded by a tierce dog and lying on thegiound. Driven by famine from her country home to seek food in tho oity, she had been attacked and wounded by the animal and being separated from her friends, no Chinese would lift a finger to help her. That would mean incurring the possibility of the expense of a funeral.. So she faced death as every dangerously sick person in China, friendless or suspected of having an evil spirit, does, on the hard ground. For no sooner does a*Chinese become ill than he is usually thrust from the house • to die outside. The woman's life v/as saved through my taking several stitches in- the leg and supplying her with proper food. She is but one of thousands who in this great plain with its cities and tens of thousands of inhabitants ate, owing to the present scaroity of food, famine stricken. But a fraction of a cent is required per meal for them, but this hundreds lack and one sees them starving on the streets of the city, too weal* to walk or speak. The five C. I. M. missionaries of Hon-Cho'ng are opening a* famine relief works from their own means, hoping to continue it as the Lord may incline others to help. The plan is to buy rice selling it at a reduction, thus giving relief to as large a'humber as possible. Owing to the injury to crops including the almost complete destruction of rice, the present distress will continue doubtless for six months or more. Irrigation is practiced but the river has failed in its supply of water. Two crops a year are taken off the ground. Nowhere will one find a more industrious and cconom inal people, practising the most intense methods of agri-' culture and shrewdly bargaining for the .last cash in a business transaction, (a cash being a copper coin extensively used here and worth one-half a mill) Chinese money is of, three kinds: the Spanish dollar, the Mexican dollar and the Tael. The latter only used here consists of lumps of silver termed "shoes of silver," being .stamped officially and of different weights; and of cash—the coin having a square hole in its center. A tael note is also used at Hon-chong. * Thus a traveler is compelled to betake himself to the nearest blacksmith shop when he wants, to get change from his shoe of silver. A hammer and chisel soon accomplish' the deed... I remain as ever, Yours most truly, . . 0. Eugene Parsons,. 5 Hon-chOngj • China,Inland Miss. • Hanlcon, China..
