JIM icknell Bros, WILL QUND OVER TO GIRGDIT COURT, M. E Robinson's Assaulters , Gaptured and Jailed. . Result of Sheriff Updegraff's Splendid Work. As was stated in the Sentinel of - February 12th, M. F. Robinson on the 9th inst. was badly beaten and robbed of M5, at his ranch west of Lake, by , John and Noah Benn, Ormel H, Keyes being an accessory in the crime. Keyes was locked up in the county jail and the Benn boys fled. They were captured, however, and brought back for examination which was held Tues- 1.-. day before Justice D. R. Wait of Far- '■ well. Prosecuting Attorney Geo. J. Cummins acted in behalf of the people, and A. J. Lacy for the defendants. M. Eobinson was the principal witness for the.people and from his testimony a Sen-moth* reporter gleans the ' following: Ormel H. Keyes is a tenant on his ranch and when not busy with crops and the like getsout cedar, Mrs. Utley lives near and also with " her lived her daughter, Mrs. Bair, and her husband, and John and Noah Benn, Mrs. TJtley's sons. Keyes boarded with them, and the'four men worked together, spending much of • their time winters getting out cedar. Robinson had a written contract with Keyes, and had aggreed to cash Keye3' orders for work on cedar the Benn boys l did. On the ninth of this month he went to Lake prepared to settle all accounts. He had paid the Benn boys for their cedar and asked them to sign a receipt in .full, which they would not do, and then for the first time claimed and demanded 845 for clearing rye ground, Mr. Robinson never , hired them and so felt that, he owed them nothing, having paid Keyes for clearing the land. On his refusal to pay, the brothers commenced a procedure which shortly changed RoSin- ,sons physical* complexion, and made Dr. Kelley's services very neccessary. When Robinson found his condition veryscrjousand believed it would be death to him if he did not comply ^ with their demands, they took the money and IeavingKeyes to guard him the Benn boys packed thejr "turkeys" and were off. Old Keyes was paid for his trouble by John Benn, and, refusing to intervene when called up on, he is also implicated. The defence put no witnesses on the stand and all three were bound over to the March term Of circuit court, the baiMor the Benn brothers being fixed at $500 each and Keyes' at $400. They are how in the county jai(. '. < The excellent services of Sheriff Up- degraff in t capturing the boys, they having so long a start before he was put onto their trail, and the fact that his skillful maneuvers saved the county from $100 to $150, is worthy of mention. When he located them they were across the line from St. Joseph county in Indiana. Requisition papers would have been necessary for him to get them. This w<>uld have necessitated a trip back to Lansing, then to Indianapolis, Indiana, and back before he could have brought them to Clare county. He learned that they were sawing wood about four miles from the Michigan line, so he got an Indiana officer to arrest them and bring them over the line, and when Jess made known.his business there were two fellows very much surprised, to put it mildly. The outlook for all three is not very pleasant, for even if Mr. Robinson did owe them .as they claimed, they, look away of getting their money tha'b the law can't sanction. V LETTER FROM CUBA.

'" • „ - Graphic Description of the Country and its People by a Michigan Man. (CONTINTXBD FEOM PKEVKTOS ISSUE.) I have beheld thousands of acres of all sugar cane waiting for the mills to start to yield.thousands of tons of saccharine matter. While riding through great farms long since laid waste by the ravages of- internecine strife, I have often ridden to the top of a small hill or knoll to get a view of, the surrounding country, and as I sat there upon my Cuban mount I have exclaimed to my Cuban guide and to my American ass iciates, "Buena vista!" "Vista Hermosal" meaning "A grand scene!" "A beautiful sight!", as I looked over as beautiful a country—up or down the valley of the Zaza or Tuimuca Rivers in Eastero Santa Clara—as the sun ever shone upon. I have feasted my eyes upon the gurgling water,, pebbly bottoms and accompanying vegetation of running brooks, which, for the purity of their water, or the beauty of their courses, cannot be excelled. I have seen many covics of wild quail just like those in Michigan, many flocks of wild parrots in the forests and have watched the' timid but nimble deer make great -leaps in going from an open place to the cover of a thicket, when disturbed. Whenever night has overtaken" me and my traveling associates far from our base of operations, we Have received the most kindly and hospitable attention from the country people even though we came upon them without a moment's warning, and have slept in houses that had ho doors to close and lock, without a thought'of danger or molestation,- although with all our boasted civilization, education and Christian influence, we of the north are careful to lock our doors and bar our windows against each other nightly before We dare trust ourselves to be wooed to sleep. t All these experiences I have enjoyed .while the people of the iNorth have been shivering from the effects of wintry blasts and worried through fear that the coal trust might not permit them to purchase another ton ©£ coal, even at an exorbitant price.. I left Detroit on Nov. 13th and went to Washington,, as I Had some' business at the State Department and with the Cuban Minister, I book with me a letter of introduction from Senator Alger to the Minister from .Cuba. I found Gen. Quesada a veay affable and obliging gentleman, as nearly all the Cubans of education are, He promptly granted my requests and also gave me a letter of introduction to prominent Cuban official*, whom I had not' previously met, ab the same time requesting me to communicate with him at any time if I desired his services. Said he, "I will be glad to do anything I can for you, for you know I love you." As I was not a young lady I did not blush, and besides I knew that he did not refer to me in particular, but to the American people in general. From Washington I went to Tampa, Fla., by rail via the Sea Board Air Line, a trip of upwards or Ave nun-, dred miles through Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia and-Florida. Of course, it is not safe nor just to judge any country or section from what one sees from a railroad train, but if what I saw during the daylight portion of that ride is a fair sample of the country in those states, it would tfiffce a Warranty deed of a very large tract of land and a large sized bank account as gifts to induce me to live there. From the southern state line of Florida to Tampa, there is scarcely a habitable' spot to be seen. Large areas of small pine and very poor soil is the rule. Jo tnr Western". (To be continued.)

MASTER GONE TO HIS REWARD. Rev. W. J. Hathaway. One of Three Mentioned as His Successor. In the death of Dr. Levi Master, presiding elder of the Big Rapids district, ministers and churches have lost a man who touched the lives of the congregations of the entire district. But four weeka ago he came from a cold d,rive to t!ie Epworth League social at the "Clare church. He stayed with Rev. and Mrs. W. J. Hathaway that night, proposing to drive to Calkinsville and to Leaton next day, but, though bravely struggling against his evident illness, was compelled to return to his home at Big Rapids. Complications arose and in the end he succumbed to liver congestion and intestinal troubles. The funeral service took place at the home at Big Rapids Saturday with thirty- one ministers of the district present and President Dickey of Albion college and the "presiding elders of the Kalamazoo, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Grand Traverse districts. Rev. F. A. Chspman had charge of the service but Revs. J. W. Hallenbeck of Reed City, D. C. Real of Big Rapids, W. J. Hathaway of Clare and Dr. Graham all participated in the service. The interment took"place at- Grand Rapids. Dr. Master was born in Ontario sixty-three years ago. He joined the Michigan conference in 1870 and has been in charge of a number of the important Methodist churches including Albion, Kalamazoo and Jackson. ' Besides he was presiding elder at Niles two years, Kalamazoo, full term of-six years' and Big Rapids two and one- years. He leaves a widow, two daughters and a son to mourn his departure. At the memorial service at the M. E. church Sunday morning Rev. W. J. Hath&way broke down ashe'*told of the man who has been his presiding elder more than ten years, of his amiable qualities, of his devotion to his, work. He expressed the opinion .that his death was brought on by exposure on the many long drives he . took in visiting the ' fifty- one churched on the district. But he preached art eloquent sermon extol ling the virtues of Jnis leader, how gone to his reward. Dr. Master's successor will be appointed by Bishop Fitzgerald of St. LouiSj Mo. But there .is a desire In the district that some one be appointed from among the present resident pastors. The Bishop has full power to act in this matter but on a former similar occasion the pastors of a district submitted three names from which the. appointment was made. Accordingly Rev. G. A*. Brown, pastor of the church at Evart, (was appointed last Saturday to obtain the Vote of the pastors of the Big Rapids district and from him we learned this morning that of thirty-one ballots received up to Wednesday evening these three were in the lead: Revs. F. A, Chapman, Big RapidS; J. W. Hallenbeck, Reed City; W. J. Hathaway, Clare. The Methodist pastor here will probably not be chosen but the Clare and Herrick Methodists way well fell proud of the evident high regard in which their pastor is held by his fellow pastors.
