WOBfittTtBE R1E0 FOR MURD A A Capsule with a Remarkable Story to Play an Important : . Part in the Trial. The examination of Dr. and Mrs. "Worden occupied two and one-half days and they were last Friday bound over to the June term of circuit court on the charge of murder in the first degree. 4 The evidence presented, even though much was withheld, makes a strong case against the prisoners. The most startling fact brought out was the existance of a capsule which on analysis was found to contain the same deadly poisin, potassium cyanide, found jn the stomach of the murdered man, Silas Burr. It was, however, not until they learned of the sending of the stomach to Ann Arbor for analysis that they took the officers into their confidence, presenting the capsule and accompanying it with a remarkable story. Mrs. Worden told Sheriff Updegraff, thus "he testified, that on the morning of the day the doctor and Mr. Burr started on their ride to Harrison, she saw Mrs. Burr make up two capsules, one of which was given to Mr. Burr and the other to Mrs. Worden for her husband so that if either of the men got cold during the journey he should take the capsule to warm him up. Dr. Worden had said nothing as to the presence of any capsuie on the night of his return with the dead man, but weeks later he said Burr had taken a capsule just before becoming ill. " Mrs. "Worden did not give her. husband the capsule but kept it and finally gave it to the officers. If this story.be true, the guilt must rest upon Mrs. Burx and hot upon the W6rdens. But evidently -nobody believes such an allegation and unless the prisoners can present evidence, not now anticipated, it will only tend to* strengthen the case of .the people against them. In addition to those whose testimony was given in last week's Sbn- xixec the following -witnesses, were called; R. Carson, L. D. Sillaway, Jerome • Stevens, of Crooked Lake; Deputy Sheriff Humes and Justice Iyo», of Vassar; and Sheriff Upde graff. This list is but a small part of the number to be called at the trial.- The case promises to be a very expensive one to the county. Mrs. Burr accompanied by her mother was in Clare Saturday on her way home to Vassar, her former home, where she now resides. Two children belong to the home, wrecked by the hand of crime, a girl of seven years of age and a boy of three. Mrs. Burr seems to he a very pleasant lady, is highly respected at Crooked Lake. She seems to have no bitterness in her thought but is firmly desirous that justice shall he done.- HELD FOR TRIAL. Mat Sentz, Jr., on Charge of Murder— Mat Sentz, Sr., on Charge of . Manslaughter. The examination of Mat Sentz, Sr», and Mat Sentz, Jr., on the charge of killing John Henry Moore on the night of May 12, commenced before Justice Williams on Tuesday morning, and at five o'clock in the afternoon an adjournment was taken until yesterday morning, when the examination was again taken up. It was nearly six o'clock when the attorneys completed their work, and it was up to Justice Williams to give his decision. He decided to hold Mat Sentz, Jr., to the circuit court to allow a jury of twelve men to say whether or not he is guilty of murder. The charge of manslaughter was placed against Mat Sentz, Sr., and he was released on $2,000 bail which was furnished, to appear at the next term of the circuit court.—Coleman Independent. rising Values.

Murphy and James D. McConneli Married at Nuptial Mass. A very pretty wedding took place at St. Cecelia's church Tuesday morning, June 2nd, when Anna Marguerite, eldest daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Peter Murphey of Sheridan, was united in the holy bonds of wedlock to James D. McConneli of .Vernon. The church was well nigh filled as its first wedding party entered its portals to the strains of' Mendelssohn's wedding march played by Mrs. O. M. Sutherland.' Eev. Ff. M alone performed the ceremony at which time nuptial mass was said, and offered words of advice on4 the" sanctity of the marriage vow, all in keeping with this impressive service of the Catholic church. The bride was attired in a very becoming gown of pale silk trimmed with silk applique and carried white carnations. Miss Mae' Murphy of Saginaw, cousin of the bride, acted as maid of honor and was gowned in pale blue foulard silk and wore a black picture hat. "Raymond McConneli, brother of the groom, was best man. After the ceremony the bridal party repaired to the home of the bride's parents to a Wedding reception given in honor of Mr. and Mrs. McConneli. Both the bride and groom are well known in this vicinity, she as a most aimable and highly respected young lady and he as a genial and worthy young farmer. The gifts were numerous and valuable, the principal one being, a cheque for 81,000, the gift of the bride's father; The happy couple left on the evening train for a trip to .Ludington, Chicago and Grand Rapids with the best wishes of'a host of friends for their future happiness and prosperity. Mr. and Mrs. McConneli will be at home in Vernon to their friends after June 10th. Sunday Excursion tp Toledo. On Sunday June 76li the Ann Arbor R.

In Clare Mr, Lawrence followed the carpenters' trade and was a familiar figure to most people in this vicinity. But he has been called hence. The- sympathy Of ihe community is with the family, especially with the devoted wife, who with her strong unselfish womanliood, as the years have gone by, has given us an example of how noble a true*wife and mother is. Obituary. Pied, May 13th, 1903, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. T. Hair, at Chicago, 111., Amanda Melvina Eor- shee Ross, at the age of 84 years, 1 month and 22 days. Deceased was born March 21." 1819, in Cayuga county, near Auburn, "N". Y., of a sturdy Holland Erench family. At the age of 24 she was converted, Joining the Methodist Episcopal Church. In pure unshaken faith she lived to the end of her long life, a life made beautiful by her kindly love for husband and family, and by the sweet spiritual influence exerted over all who knew her. Eor years past, morning^ afternoon or everting, she would sit for hours and sing alone in her Sweet, low voice, the hymns she loved so well, especially loving to sing tho hymns, "Sweeping Through the Gates," and "Nearer My God■ to Thee." .She loved them not alone for the sweet-music bat for the sentiment expressed by the words. She was ever cheerful and .happy, cheering others with her heart and voice. All who knew her feel deeply that a beautiful spirit has passed/rom us to the higher more beautiful life above. Deceased was the mother of two sons and sir daughters, Helen C, deceased; - William Ross, Clare, Mich.; Mrs. D. I. Gilman, Santa Barbara, Cal.; Mrs. Henry Holdridge, Highland; George W.

Interment took place in Highland Corners cemetery.—Milford Times. Warning Against Profanity. At the ball game last Saturday afternoon the language and conduct of one or two persons was on one occasion decidely indecent. But during the evening Mayor Lacy swore out a war- rent for one lad who appeared before Judge Maynard, pleaded guilty and was fined SI and costs. The owners of the ball park likewise have prohibited the same person from participating in any games in ths park this season. J[ There is no good reason v/hy profanity and indecent language should play any part in good clean sport, such as our national f-ame of base ball, and the stand taken by a number of our best citizens in the incident at the ball park will have a most wholesome influence upon some who too readily "'take the name of the Lord * * * in vain." It would be a good time now to inaugurate a crusade against improper larigurge on the streets in the presence of small boys and-even when ladies are passing. In the particular instance In question the name of the offender is lenown to many of the people of Clare but because we desire to deaf generously with him, we forbear publishing his name with the hope that .in the future the Sentinel will have no farther Occasion, to discuss the question. o£ profanity^ M^***********^**^^^ CLOSING OUT SALE! re- I will close out my entire stock of Millinery re gardless of cost beginning June 1st.

Short Route From Glare Northwest? On the autherity of the Detroit Eree Press negotiotioris are in progress for the Pere Marquette's acquisition of the "Klondike," a branch railroad extending from Rapid City in the northwest corner of Kalkaska county to Stratford in the northern part of Missaukee county. The plan is to secure a short route from Detroit to northwest Michigan, which is in keeping with- the announced policy of the P. M*. system to build up trunk lines. At present the P. M, has two routes from Detroit to.northwestern Michigan, one by way ol Grand Rapids and north and the other by way" of Saginaw west to Baldwin and then north. But here at Clare where the P. M. line crosses the Ann Arbor the former has a branch extending to. Harrison and on northwest to Leotaj near the border of Clare and Missaukee counties. Rapid City lies about twenty-six miles north of Leota ahd so with the purchase of the Klondike the P. M. road would need to construct only a few miles of road to give it a practically straight road .from Detroit to Petoskey and northwestern Michigan, a saving of more than sixty miles over the distance on either of the present routes. ably the last under the supervision of the Booming Company, and such logs as are sent down in the future will be done by private .parties. The vast forest of pine which once covered this whole valleyf have passed down the stream, the proceeds of which have made millionaires, who are now scattering their wealth in many and widely separated sections of the earth, and it is a, lamentable fact that not many remain in the state which furnished material from which their fortunes were derived. Charles H- Hack- ley, of Muskegon, is one conspicous example of those beneficiaries, who seeing the fitness of things, is giving the people of his own town through his open handed liberalty many evidences of his appreciation by building schools, parks and other needed improvements for the pleasure and pr.oflt of the people.
