In; fact a part of Isabella's system reaches into Jlare county. Aa important elaboration of the system is now in progress. A drain eleven miles long aud large enough for a^ood sized canal is to be constructed during the next year, the first section of which is to be thirty-five feet wide at the top and twenty feet at the bottom and the second section thirty feet at the top and eighteen feet at the bottom, Tracing it up stream, it is to leave the north branch of the Chippewa, west of Mt. Pleasant at the Bradley bridge road in the township of Deer- field and running north through Deer- field and JN Ottawa is to end at section 28 in Gilmore about seven miles from Olare. From it branches will be extended as needed draining the townships of Gilmore, Nottawa, Deerfleld, TJnion and Vernon and redeeming tfaousunds of acres of best farming lands. Work has already been begun upon the construction of the boat3 necessary for the machinery to be utilized as well as for a house for the workmen and about 20,000 feet of lumber will be required for this pereliminary part of the work. The evacuation js to be done by dredging and when «in Operation will doubtless be visited'by many interested spectators. Whether this canal shall be used for other purposes than drainage is a question not yet propounded but when completed it will mean a waterway from Mt. Pleasant up to the lakes just south of Olare. It is however in the possibilities of land development from this extensive system of drainage that its value lies and since Clare's interests are wrapped up equally with .northern Isabella and Olare counties we note with pleasure this new enterprise for the development of Isabella's resources. Got Hold oi Laudanum. A two and a half year old son of Alex Dudley of Farwell got hold of a bottle of laudanum and took a taste of Jibe deadly poisos before he could be stopped but medical aid was speedily at Band and tbe child's life saved and now he is none the worse for the experience. CLARE IMPROVEMENTS. A stone foundation has been placed under the residence of Henry Ball and cellar also enlarged. "Keep off" notices have been placed at the cross paths springing into existence at the city park. The nice catch of white clover on the school grounds with only a year or two of attention plainly tells what might be done on the city park. Jim Bicknell is having erected at the corner of County line and Maple street a commodious ten room residence, all rooms with 36 inch glass. Mr. Bicknell and family will occupy this when completed and with Will at the north end of town and Jim at the south end, Olare will be pretty well protected. Within the past year there has been laid on the streets of Clare approximately the following number of rods of cement walks:—ordinary sidewalks 100 rods, walks leading from sidewalks to residences 40 rods; twelve foot walks on McEwan street, 25 rods; equivalent to about 200 rods of ordinal y four and a half foot cement walk. Cement walks have been laid since our last issue or are now in course of construction at Graves' property, two residences on east third street, La- piarre's and Wood's residences, west Sixth street, Kelley'a and Dunwoodie's and Derby's property, three residences toward the northern end of McEwan street, street street. Joiner's residence east Fifth add Crawfored's west Fifth Plans for the New Brick Block. The Clare Hardware Company have already gotton out plans for their new brick block to be erected on the corner of McEwan and Fourth streets. The building is to be constructed primarily to meet the needs oi the company for a modern thoroughly equipped retail hardware. It is to be 33x100 feet and two stories high. On the ground floor there will be the hardware facing un McEwan street and a harness shop at the east end, facing on fourth street; on the second floor two Set of private offices, a telephone office and at the eastern end a tin shop. Haug and Schurman of Saginaw are the architects and the design promises one of the most beautiful, if not the superior, of any of, the store fronts in Clare. The building now occupied by the company will be temporarily moved over next to the Tatman grocery. With "The Calkins" already a synonym for what a hotel ought to to be, the Messrs. Calkins are to be congratulated on tnis new enterprise that plainly tells of the substantial growth of their business and with equal plainness sets forth the development and prosperity of the surrounding country. Sunday School Excursion. Seven representatives of the Sabbath schools of Clare, Isabella and Midland counties including C. E. Parsons and A. L. Woodlock of Ciare and Bev. Barclay of Midland went to Bay Port Wednesday to complete arrangements for an excursion to be held Auguit 13th. They were shown every coutesy by Dist. Pass. Agt. Brittain who accompanied the party to Bay Port. All unite in declaring this to be a most ideal spot for the pleasure of the thousands who will take advantage of the low rates to visit this most beautiful spot on Saginaw Bay. The grounds comprise about thirty acres where every means are at hand to make the day one to be remembered, swings, boats, bathing, pavilion and all whicb go to make an outing complete.

Midland chemical works are taking a fresh boom. Mt Pleasant Normal enrolls 250 for the summer term. Alma boasts of having the best sidewalks in Central Michigan, Ithaca and all Gratiofcites are proud of the flne new court house, located at at Ithaca. Mt. Pleasant's Normal training school will be readv for occupancy in September. •Evart Citizen Telephone Co. reports a prosperous half year of work with extension of its liDes. Midland has a stone grinder, chewing up hard heads for she benefit of her principal streets. Bruce Shorts of foot ball fame on U. of M's last year's champion team opens a law office in Mt. Pleasant. There were 37 criminal prosecutions in Osceola county during the first half of 1902, resulting in 35 convictions. St. Louis is constructing rather extensive chemical works to Utilize her mineral springs and expects to employ 150 men bv this means. A ten-pin, billiard cue and last- block factory is in course of erection at Cadillac. lb is said that it will be the largest of its kind in the United States, Gratiot is credited with five knots tied and five untied during the week ending July 10. This reminds "us that Clare's matrimonial doings axe at a low ebb, On the authority of Ypsilanti press Mt. Pleasant will make an effort at the next legislature to have her Normal grant life certificates as does tbe Ypsilanti and Marquette Normals. At the last election Local Option was turned down in Gratiot county but tne temperence workers there propose to organize their forces again, calling a meeting for J uly 26 at Ithaca. Alma is to have a free street fair and carnival given by her merchants during the week beginning July 21. The Robinson Carnival Co. of Cincinnati is to furnish the attractions, and the railroads have fixed a rate of one fare for the round trip for all towns within a radious of 50 miles. The Coed question at Ypsilanti has reached an acute stage. The authorities propose co have an "approved list" of landladies who shall enforce the regulation of allowing no gentlemen callers later than ten o'clock. But be it known that Ann Arbor students will continue to -believe in the glories of a ride on the trolly from Ann to Ypsi. It is also intimated that unless dancing is stopped the Methodists of the state will be, many of them, induced to send their children, to Albion instead of tbe Ypsilanti Normal.
