FARWELL'S PROGRESS. Cement Plant Giving Impetus to other Lines of Growth. Great Credit due to J. L. " Littlefield for Present Development. Farwell, Micb., July 7, '03,—Farwell is far from being tbe dead town it is reputed to be. Over twenty years ago the county Seat was moved from here, then the metropolis of the county, to Harrison. Since then as lumber disappeared it ceased growing and was considered to be dead, Years ago valuable deposits of marl were found at Littlefield lake just over tbe line in Isabella county. J. L. Littlefield, . owner of large interests in the county and one of the pioneers of the town, lias since that time kept pushing the establishment of a cement factory bere. Today his hope is so far realized tbat within six months the plant will be in operation. The buildings and grounds of the Farwell Portland cement company plant occupy about twenty five acres, situated between the Ann Arbor and Pere Marquette railroads. The dry kilns 70x136 and engine and boiler house, 50x134, are constructed of steel and cement, which with other ample buildings bring the number up to eight, all being rapidly pushed to completion. Littlefield lake, where the mart is found, is about Ave miles from town and laying rails for tbe branch from Farwell there is already On. 'Clay of suitable quality is-found within a short distance of the plant. The capacity of tbe cement factory is to be about 700 barrels a day and -will involve the employment of. sixty men, the pay roll for which will reach very nearly $4,000 per mouth. Farwell Is justly proud of her new growth and all tbe more so because ber own citizens have had the initiative enterprise to utilize the resources of the country centering around the village. J. L. Littlefield, L. Weis man, H. M. Boys, all Farwell met?, bave been'most active in promoting tbe cement company which has been placed on a safe financial basis. With tbe Impetus of the establishment of tbe cement plant other evidences of growth rapidly follow. Many ranches are being established in various directions from here and land that had been though!, worthless is now proving valuable for general farming purposes. A rural delivery route has been in operation from here for over a year. Tbe Farwell Savings Bank is in course of. erection and will be opened for business early in August. A cheese factory has been established here. A heading mill, scarcely operated previously, has just passed into new hands and will be pushed to its capacity. A local telephone exchange is finding a place in the village. Rumors are afloat of the establishment of a second cement plant here to utilize tbe marl found at lakes north of town. Thus goes on the development of the reputed "pine barrens." HARDWARE FIRM CHANGE. Doherty & Sons, Floyd and Frank entering tbe business. July 1st this firm was dissolved and tbe sons of tbe founder of the business assume active management of it. the firm now being known as Doherty Brothers. F. JE and F. B. Doherty, to whom now passes the direct management of the Doherty hardware business, are Glare boys, who have spent their lives in the midst of tbe changing conditions of Clare as the transformation from a lumber community to a farming COMFORTABLE CLOTHES For Hot Weather Lay aside that heavy suit, with its warm, stuffy linings and stiff , interlining and put on one of our light, coqI and airy two piece out-'f ing suite and be comfortable. | Wehayeavery attractive line of them at, per suit 6,50 to 10.00 ODD PANTS BARGAIN A large line, of men's pants, odd and, ends from lines which sold at thin. $1.25 to $185 per pair, .

Senator Doherty Retires and Leaves the Business to his Sons, Floyd and Frank. Over twenty years ago Senator Doherty and Cashier Sutherland started ou a small scale in the hardware business in what is now the O'Oailahan building. Landlord Calkins was at that time the leading hardware man in Clare and It is indeed pleasano to hear these three worthies, when they meet in a reminiscent mood once in a while as a Sentinel report recently found them, relate the experiences of those earlier days when money came easier and went more freely than now. Lightly new do the Cashier and the Senator laugh as they narrate how they found themselves up against the real tiling as they went to purchase a stock of hardware with practically no credit, The one didn't stay long in the hardware business but he kept on accumulating that lame fund of practical worldly wisdom that has made him the trusted Cashier of the Clare Co. Savings Bank and'the man of affairs that he is now.known to be. The other kept on as a hardware man gradually enlarging the business, to what it is today, building a wooden structure in the present bank block, which wiien consumed by Are was replaced by the present brick structure 28x80 ia 1885 to which was added last year the large warehouse 52x00. la 1881 the firm became known as country . have gone on. They attended the public schools and from boyhood kept getting les- sons as to the practical part of their father's business. Subsequently they studied at Olivet college and became members of the firm of A. J. Doherty & Sons in 1897. Their lives are practically an open book to the whole community and they are known as young men always desirous for the advancement of tbe material interests of the city and earnest promoters of those little things that increase life's enjoyment for the entire community. Both are members of the citsy band and each in his own way as "a part lathe life of the city, Floyd is the manager of the opera house and enthusiastic for legitimate sports such as base ball and foot ball and ia Clare's only automobilist. Frank has served two years as one of the city aldermen and is always the same jovial, good- hearted steady- going young matt but iie enjoys life and often for a few hours forgets business as in his naphtha launch he glides over Stevenson lake. Settled in homes of their own both are now prepared to give the best part of their-lives to their business. Lost,—Black cloth jacket, black silk lining.

Hotel and livery accommodations arc of tl»e beat, and comfortable Q^uar- Auetioneer Henry Orth has bsen a familiar figure in Clare and surroubding country these many years where in bis full rotund voice he may be heard at auction sales disposing, of all sorts and sizes of things to the highest bidder and his 'sales always proceed with such genial good humor that it is a pleasure to be present. He came to Clare in 1884; had charge of the Exchange Hotel nine years; built the Central Hotel which in turn he traded for a farm out in Sheridan. Now he lives in Clare, on sixth street east; looks after his farm; mingles freely with farmers far and near and at many an auction sale helps them dispose of stock, implements and all sorts of odds and ends to the very best possible advantage. E'or twenty-nine years he has been an auctioneer and ever 'since he fl^st came to Clare has been more Or less called on to officiate in thia capacity. May he have many more years of usefulness during which he may, as occasion arises, go on wielding the auctioneer's hammer. * known to every field trial patron in the country, and this insures that the judging, will be done satisfactorily •md on correct principles.
