It waa remarked in our bearing this week that the Courier's editor has a rare (?) faculty of getting together a great number of words that when analyzed form meaningless sentences. This fact ia so well established that it is almostj-jneedless to print it, nor would we, w^ejfe it not for the hysterical article'., appearing against us m the last issue of the Courier. The man doesn't faceathe truth, and dodges almost continually. Here is another proof of the above fact: In speaking of our article show- up the rot of* 3ome of the board of aldermen, he says, regarding this, "we stall have but little to say, because the entire incident is of too little moment to demand mujh attention." Now this is.not surprising to people wbo know that this man is a leader of that kind of politics that considers most any kind of dirt fair. But he will be convinced, and before long, too, that this kind of thing won't Jong be tolerated. The saying is as true as it is commonplace, that every dog has his day. " The editor in question says we went up his back steps,—so we did, and tgld him we felt sure he'd get the work anyway, judging from the attitude Mayor Lacy and Aid. Lee *took at the council meeting. He saw the chance to hit 'em hard,—compared to the price of former years, though only legal rates,—and he hit 'em. Got it, and when he saw tbe unfairness of tbe thing went down and wanted Clerk Buell to change the minutes of the Meeting after the motion had been made and carried. What right has the clerk to change the wording of a resolution, passed by the board, so that it would read fifty cents a folio -instead of seventy? Would this not fee a gross violation of his sworn duty? Yet this Richard Oroker of Clare Tammany did this very thing. But the clerk, amah every inch of him, refused to change tbe proceedings. This not working satisfactorily, he last week told his readers that he would not accept tbe seventy cent rate even though the board offered him that. Poor fellow! If it is right for the board to give, it is right for him to receive, and we are sure the money would not burden him ir all deals Were squared. This same editor says he Ms re cently been approached to form a combine. The Sentinel wants fair compensation for services, and nothing more, but this man Canfleld would lead his readers to believe the contrary. Perhaps the following incident will show how large a place there is in his great heart for the "dear taxpayer:" It was about the time the new charter was adopted and a large number of blanks were to be printed. The board then stood four democrats co two republicans, and the Sentinel was looking for nothing from them. This apostle of democracy approached us something after this manner: I'm feeling a Jittle sore to think that the council would not give this work to me without any question, and now that they have offered it to the lowest bidder, you come up to my office by tbe back stairs—your office being on the ground iioor and more public than mine—and we'll fix this thing up. We went up and after agreeing one to bid fifty cents higher tban the other, and getting the price some higher than we would if each had put in a bid without consulting the other,»we flipped pennies to see which would get the award. He got it, but we did half the work and gob half the proceeds. We can prove that the above really transpired. This would remain unsaid were it not for the intimations published in last week's Courier. We are willing to play fair, but we protest when unfair advantages are taken. it was Editor Dudley of the Harrison Cleaver who dubbed Canfleld as an ink-fish, roiling the water as a defence instead of pitching an open battle, and so far as we know this was not refuted. Farwell Portland Cement Co. Farwell, Mich., May 20th, 1902. Notice is bereby given that a meeting of the stock holders of The Farwell Portland Cement Company will be held on Friday, the 6th day of June, 1902, at the hour of 3 o'clock p. m., at the company's office in the village of Farwell, Clare Co., Mich., for the purpose ot adoDting by-laws for the use of said company, electing directors and for the transaction of such other business as may properly come before said meeting. 26-2 W.

AGEN6Y FOR STANDARD Patterns and Publications EXCHANGE GLEANINGS, f Flower thieves have begun bheir depredtaions again among the beds of early spring blossoms. After a few young ladies and gentlemen (?) have appeared in justice court to answer to the charge of theft, an ugly word to have inscribed against one's name, it won't seem so cute to those particular ones to sneak into a person's yard and steal from the Uower beds.. And this ia what is likely to happen to someone before the season is over.—Mt. Pleasant Tribune. Wonder why we reprint? A good Methodist and a good Baptist clergyman were telling dreams to each other one night at a church social. ■ i thought 1 was in heaven and saw ho Baptists there," remarked the Methodist. "1 inquired where they all were and was answered that they had not arrived yet; they are coming by water and are waiting for the creek to rise." "1 dreamed," retorted the Baptist, "that I was Jn heaven and saw no Methodists there, Upon inquiry I was toid they were all outside the walls on six months' probation.—Ex. The following was 'contributed by a citizen wbo has boys and girls of his own and probably knows whereof he speaks, and we give it for what it is worth: "Last Sunday we noticed a young man just out of knee pants escorting a young woman still in short dresses. As they strolled down Northern kvenue bis smiles indicated that he felt like a tub of butter swimming in honey, cologne, nutmeg and ginger pop, while she looked as though something was traveling through her nerves on feet of diamonds, escorted by several cupids in golden chariots dra/wn by angels, and the whole outfit spread over with a melted rainbow. God bless the kids! Let them spark. Like cfiewing tobacco, it probably keeps them frjm practising worse vices." GRAND OPENING. Lake Erie Park and Casino. Excursion to Toledo. On Sunday, June 1st, the Ann Arbor B. B. will give a special excursion to Toledo and return to enable Michigan people to join Ohio in celebrating the opening of Toledo's new Lake Erie Park and Casino. Shortly after the close of the* season of 1901, the old Casino was destroyed by lire, and since then hundreds of skilled workmen have been engaged in the building of the new resort, which has just been completed ahd which is said to surpass iu grandeur any similar place of amusement in America. It is expected that not less than 60,000 people will be present on the opening day and a rare treat is in store for those who are fortunate enough to be among the number.

His mother was much worried for fear the neighbors would tiarnk she had not properly impressed thfc boy with the sacredness of the day.
