That Railroad Route. - A communication from a resident at Man Siding states that the removal of the Harrison branch would be most disastrous to residents in that vicinity and suggests that the Hatton hill could be avoided by leaving the present course of the railroad and, gaining northeast, proceed through a valley with only one or two small hills, easily cut down, and strike the present road one mile south of Harrison, securing a very nearly uniform: xrpward grade over the entire distance. OFF FOR INLAND CHINA. Letter from C. E. Parsons on his Way to the East. On train, November 24th, 1903. Dear Readers of the Seittikel: To be traveling westward to reach the "Far East" is certainly* a novel experience. We left Minneapolis this morning over the Soo Pacific Line for Vancover, B. 0.. where we take ship on the C. P. R. S. S. Empress of China on November 30th, for Shanghai, China. Our route is the shortest and least expensive to the Orient, carrying us several hundred miles to the north of the Phillipine Islands, and touching at Yokohama, Kobe, and _Taga- saka, Japan. The trip to Shanghai is made in but nineteen days from Van- coyer. Speeding across the fertile prairies of Minnesota with evidences of prosperity and all those many advantages that are the gift of civilization to man. one can but ask, Why is the United States so far in advance of China? With her centuries of opportunity, why has China remained in such mediaeval darkness? - Why has such a refined and intelligent1* race proved to be the greatest blouk to progress? There can be but one answer to these questions. China has excluded Christianity from her borders while the western nations have not thus stood in their own light. In spite of her remote situation in the world, China continues to be a country of immense interest, to the western student of history. With the growth of her commercial interests in the Pacific the United States is naturally desirous of developing the vast market of China with - its more than 40J,000,000 consumers: Far more should she be desirous of evangelizing this ancient country.. The fact that the Chinese Christian church has doubled each eight years during the last quarter of a century is a source of great encouragement to the friends of Missions and points to the fact that, if the present rate of increase is maintained for twenty-five years, China will be civilized. . The horrors that ever accompany life in heathen lands, need but to be,seea to convince all rational people that China needs Christ. Nothing buth Cristian- r "DAVY & COMPANY..

Gleaned From Isabella Doings. Contracts are being advertised for the Haonet drain to affect Coe township in this county and Jasper township in Midland county. The twenty-second annual convention of the Michigan state conference of ch rities and corrections was held in Mt. Pleasant Tuesday and' Wednesday of this week;-. Thanksgiving season was a time'of real thanksgiving in the county, judging from the number of matrimonial Knots tied during the ten days leading up to the day itself. It Had been supposed that the speculative fever bad subsided but it is to be hoped that at least Mt. Pleasant- ites will not substitute "watered stock" for Kentucky oil stock. 'Tis announced tbat at tbe annual meeting of the lsabell County Creamery Association at Mt. Pleasant, December 9tb, the stock holders will draw their usual ten per cent dividend. R. F. D. route northwest is to go into operation in the near future from Rosebush filling in and meeting route number three from Clare and tbe proposed route number two;from Farwell. The buildings and equipment for the Mt. Pleasant Chemical Works are .nearing completion ahd sbon the manufacture of bleaching power and other compounds of bromine will be in pro-w ureas. Tlie organization of the Mb. Pleasant oil company seems to have given a stimulus to the oil fever of this city, ■as a number of citizens have gone in and organized a new company lo be known as tbe Star Oil Compauy.—• Northwestern Tribune. The Granges of the cbur-iy are ic- duatriouily discussing the Question of primary reform. At Rosebush even the ladies are not afraid to have their say on this subject. The Mt. Vernon Grange after discussion in several meeting!" Monday evening adopted a resolution favoring the reform in a general way without specifying any details. Four one-day farmers' institutes will be held in .the county next week, at Herrick Tuesday, at Brinton Wed- nesDay, at Weidm'an Thursday, and Broomdeld town ball Friday. I. _T. Moore of Jonesville is the state speaker. The meetings begin at 10:00 a. m. At Herrick Mr. Moore will discuss, "Soil fertility and how to maintain ft" and "Farmers' organizitions--." A number of local res1.'',i-^-* are on the program. At Brinton ■■ r Moore will discuss, -Sheep and I., mbs for the market" and "crops for m xed farms." Among the subjects to be discussed by local talent are ''The centralized scbool question!' and "Preparing pine land for cropping." $5,000 CHEESE FACTORY. Senator Doherty and a Prominent Cheese Manufacturer to Build a Plant in Vernon. Can Anything be Done to Secure Its Erection in Clare? Arrangements are already|,so far under -way that defenite announcement is made of the erection of a $5,000 modern cheese factory-during the coming spring ready for business in early summer The plant is to be constructed of cement and brick; after the style of the present Clare power house and water works plant. - Senator Doherty and a well known Michigan cheese factory man are the ones who will supply the capital necessary to erect the plant, both men being* firmly convinced that the rich agricultural lands ofVernon and adjacent townships, with .increased number of cows, will supply plenty of milk.- The Senator now has fifty cows on Kilarney farm and has during the past season disposed of his dairy products so profitably that he- is of the opinion that dairying is an industry well adapted to our farms here. Contracts have already been closed for the furnishing of milk from ,400 cows, and there is a very general feeling of satisfaction, p-rticularly among the farmers Of Vernon, in the prospect of an important cheese factory near at hand, ia good market for dairy products. The plan appears to be to ioacate the factory somewhere in Vernon, presumably on. Kilarney farm. "But why nob locate it in,Clare," was asked of Senator Doherty. in reply he said that it was simply a qtuestion of taxes. He further stated that they were not looking for any bonus, but seemed to think that Olare ought to grant some concessions to compensate for the difference in taxes in the city of Olare as compared with those in Vernon township, provided Glare cares to have the factory rather than have it located several miles south. This industry involves the paying over of about $2,000 a weelc during the best part of the dairy season, is important and the Senxhtbl submits that at least the Clare Industral Association ought to investigate and determine what ought to be done to secure this $5,000 cheese factory for Olare. ' Seeking the Best Route, The following from the Kalkaska Leader shows that the Pere Marquette is earnestly Seeking to find the best possible route direct to the northwest: The survey party for the Pere Matquette, under A. J. Wendell, engaged in looking up a line direct from here to Bellaire, to straighten the line and shorten the distance when the proposed eastern extension is built, have thus far made the preliminary survey about four miles north of Kalkaska, but are finding themselves up against a pretty tough proposition to find a feasable -route to the point aimed at, and it is }ikely that the. route via Bapid Oity will have to be retain d when the extension is built, so many and serious are the obstacles to be surmounted on the route they would like to take, - The Masons Elect Officers. At the annual meeting of John Q. Look lodge, F. & A. M., the following officers were eleeted tor the ensuing year: W. M.—Dr. J. W. Dunlop. S. W.—A J. Lacy, J. W.-L. E. Davy. Treasurer— W. Wolsey.

Fowler of Eogersville was, November 25th, the scene of a pretty wedding in the celebration of the nuptials of Miss Ella Farmer and Mr. Burt Kinsman, two popular young people of that place, ■ The floral decorations were in keeping with the spirit of the occasion and just at high noon the "bride and groom plighted their troth, Eev, Geo. W. Wright of Mt. Morris officiating. In the presence of relatives and friends the young couple entered the parlor to the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Irma Reese and took their places under an arch made of white ribbons- entwined with smilax. Little Reah Bell Davis of Marlette and Mildred Fowler, very prettily gowned, and, carrying broad white satin ribbons, preceeded the bride and groom foiming an aisle for them to pass through. The bride was handsomely gowned in pearl grey crepe de chine over silk. ,, Following the ceremony there was a reception at which about 150 were present. The dining room, handsomely decorated with evergreens, was presided over by the Misses Edna Stimson, tra Williams, Elsie Thurston, irma and Alta Eeese, assisted by Eva Cox and Pearl Stimson.
