The senior class ol the Olare high ' school is the largest in the -history pf the school. The class of 1890 numbered eight as also did the class of 1901. JBut the class this year numbers ten. Some of the members of this class were members of the first foot ball team organized by the high school and will be the first class graduated with three teachers in the high school and theschool on the University list. Those graduating this year will be given the same recognition in other institutions of learning in the state as ' the largest high school in Michigan. Under, direction of Supt. Eiggs and Miss Gibson, principal, plans are well under way for the commencement exercises in June. All who graduate are to have part in the program. G-ardis Hagle is to be valedictorian; Grace Hathaway salutatorian; James Tatmani class prophet; Wm. Dwyer, Charles Jackson and Neil Bidwell are to give orations; Pearl Easton wiU be class reciter; Pearl Hubel, Anna Empey and Ethel Pratt will give essays. This individual work from the Class membership will form the basis for the program. , It is noticeable that there are four . boys in the class this year all from . within the city limits, but for several , years not a boy from the city proper has completed the high school course. .' Itjs to be hoped that more of our boys will in the future avail themselves of the opportunity to .complete such a course of training as is now offered by the high school under, direction of able instructors. ..A : Surprised tha Doofor. Dr. A. E. Mulder is a gopd .example of a class of citizens v/tio continually in the ordinary course of life do more than live for self alone. The doctor is a musician and freely gives of his talents—and if the truth is told, money too—to promote musical culture in Clare. "For yearshe has trained a quartette and chorus for the M. E. church and numbers of our young people have thus* received valuable lessons in music, and voice culture. • He has also been a member of the Kirkbride orchestra that has perhaps too generously supplied the musical part of many a public entertainment/ Two years ago he gave Dover band its preliminary training 'and it now is a credit to the hustling'little village, Last fall a band was organized in CI ire Dr. Mulder was asked to take charge of it. So well has his work as director been done that, although only three of the twenty-Mir members have ever had any previous training of this kind, the band at its first public appearance ten days ago, surprised even its most expectant admirers by the quality of its performance. For. years the doctor has gone on quietly plodding away. But last Friday evening over a hundred of his friends, headed by his band, dropped in at Dr. and Mrs. "Mulder's showing them in a way not to be mistaken, that their effor s in the church and elswhere had not gone unappreciated. The evening was spent in good cheer. Refreshments mere served by the ladies of the M. E. church and on behalf of the membership of his church Rev. W. J. Hathaway presented the doctor a beautiful music cabinqt and a fancy piece of chin iware, painted by Mrs Ives and on behalf of the band boys, a beautiful mantel clock, 'The evening was one of real surprises to Dr. and Mrs. Mulder and of enjoyment to their many friends, Observance of Arbor Day. Gov. Bliss designates tomorrow, Friday, April 24, as Arbor Day in the fol- ldwing.prociamation: '"Acting under, authority vested in the executive, I do hereby proclaim Friday, April 24; 1903, as. Arbor Day, and request a general observance. Arbor Day being essentially .educational in character," its purpose should be impressed upon the minds of the young by appropriate exercis. s in the educational institutions'of the st'lte, and in general by increased attention to the beautifying" of private and public grounds.

An experment, says the Free Press that will be watched withgreat interest by Owners of pine barrens aud other uncultivated lands in many counties in the state is about to be made by Frank S. Postal of Evart. "Near his summer residence a few miles from there he has a section-of wild land that he wants cleared. Several bids were made, but the lowest price was $10 per acre, and as there were 640 acres that ment $6,400. "Now Mr. Postal has purchased WO thoroughbred angora goats and expects to buy 100 more with the intention of seeing what they will do in the way of clc in- ing up the brush, etc. Mr. Postal has enclosed his whole section with strong fence 58 inches high, built a substantial shelter 150 feet long facing the south in a protected corral, put down a well so as to have water handy and will do all he can to make the experiment successful. With 200 goats he is figuring that he will get his section cleared of all underbrush, etc., at a small cost. The natural increase of his flock will also be a source of revenue, he- expects. Then the mohair from each goat, which will average from 25 cents'for the cheapest up to $2 per pound for the best, will add to the revenue, i There are tens of thousands of acres in many of the counties in the" northern part of lower Michigan in the same condition as Mr. Postal's section, and if his venture proves successful it will be followed by many others. Angora goats are" vei'y prolific, so it is probable in a few years he" will be able to supply the demands. -, ' "Wbndferful changes- have been made in this section of the county during the past twenty years and: although the land has been robbed of its Valuable pine by the lumber barons, many of whom, even neglected to pay their 'taxes, the time has already • arrived when a considerable portion of it has made good farms and is making money for its owners. Mr. Postal's plan will add another "to the already long list of experiments to make valuable land out of what was, considered by many to be worthless only a few ."years ago. ; ' Our showing in- this line is larger than ever.

Editor Sentinel :—The journey from Clare to Oakdale is a long one but it took us through some of the grandest scenery in the world. In crossing the Rocky Mountains as we reached higher attitudes, it seemed as if the air was so rare that I would almost smother. We were all night and part of next day crossing. Just as we were at the summit of the Sierra "Nevada, something happened to" the afr brake of the train and we stopped there for about thirty minutes. I crawled up to the highest point and picked some pine boughs with my own hands just at twelve o'clock at night some of which I shall send to a few of my Clare and Herrick friends. California itself impresses me as being a land pf flowers. As our train of fourteen coaches' entered the Sacramento valley the air seemed perfumed by the sweetness of flowers wafted through the open windows. Stretches of white orchards and stately palms met the eye at every turn. The climate is delightful. I notice that potatoes here (there are no potato bugs either) are excellent and only twenty-five cents a bushel. Wpareat Oakdale at present and expect to locate somewhere in Sacre- mento valley. .- Yours truly, John Edwards, Oakdale, C'al., April 8, '03. North Road improvements, , At the October meeting of the board of supervisors $350 was appropriated for rebuilding the road near the Tobacco river just north of Clare. - - This road has *ways. been a great trial to the people Of West Grant and others w.ho travel that way, and for some timethey haye justly been not a little impatient because of its unsuitableness for traffic. . . ' But the work of building the road will be begun' next Monday morning under charge of Street' Commissioner Ross of Clare, Highway Commissioner McQao'ey of Grarit and Jacob Mason bf this .city. Tho Committee have aL- ready formulated their plans and Sat"" urday will stake out the work ready for operations Monday morning. The Schafferhillistobecutdown several feet and a road bed twenty feet wide built south with the material thus obtained, grading it with a gentle slope clown from the spring of water, where the road is now corduroyed." It will be properly rounded, clayed and graveled as far as possible. Mr. Ross as chairman of the committee will have direct charge of the work and either he or Mr. McCarey will always be present to push;it. The.$350 will be expended to the best possible.,'advantage and a great transformation in the road north of Clare will be wrought in the near future. Firemen Elect Officers.
