The genial cashier of tbe Glare Ccmufcy Savings Bank, Clark H. Sutherland, hears bis blushing honors with becoming modesty and dignity, albeit there is a sort ot Did-you-see-mc-do- it twinkle in the north-east corner of his left eye when his friends offer their congratulations. It was a notable victory—his capture of the Olare county Democracy, horse, foot and dragoons, and his reinstatement as High Priest, counsellor and guide of the partj. There was a time once before when Clark was the whole thing in the democratic party of Clare county but in 1896, when he came back from the national convention, in which he sab as a delegaoe from Michigan and helped make William Bryan the standard bearer of his party, he experienced a change ot heart. At first he had thought it was all right but as he meditated, be got to feeling that Bryan was a B-A-D mafl and that everybody who supported him was an enemy to his country. Then it was that Clark quit 'em—dropped the whole bunch cold—and commenced baving all sorts of fun with the Democrats whoibelieved in the principles ■which Bryan advocated and who thought that the national convention had a right to speak for the party. Clark let 'em think so bub he insisted that as for himself he had considered the matter a whole week and he wouldn't train with a crowd who believed any such foolishness as that the great majority of the party had a right to rule. They could rule themselves but they couldn't rule him. That was six long years ago and the Cheerful cashier remained .steadfast }fl his determination to swat his former fellows, . Two Presidential elections came and' Claik chuckled with delight each time, while the Others nursed the wounds they had •fisceived in battle and groaned as defeat after defeat crushed down upon them. Olark called them Popultets and maintained that he himself and the half dozen, or so followers that failied around him, were the only genuine survivors of the Democratic party. Jfc must not be, supposed that Clark's maintenance of tbis attitude failed to i arouse the ire of his former fellow Democrats. They were mad clear through. They said several things about Clark, strongly emphasizing their remarks at times. They continued to work for the party, aDd, on account of Clark's defection, they put forth extra effort to bring about success, while Clark stood around and'stuck pins in 'em •ind gave 'em the horse laugh. All this was not calculated to generate any very high grade of harmony but Clark didn't care. He maintained that he was controlled byP-R-I-B"-C-l- P-L-E, while the other fellows wouldn't know a principle if they saw one. They read htm out of the party but Clark never turned a hair. They said that if he ever came back' he'd have to come in at the back door and crawl on his hands and knees and apologize for stabbing the party in the back—and Olark just winked the other eye. He'd show 'em when the time came! He rather thought the back-door business and the crawling and the apologizing would be done by some other people that he knew of and not by him. Tbe fact that they were out plugging for the party while he was doing the other thing didn't weigh an ounce with him. They were all Pops just the same, and when he got a good ready he'd take tne reins into his own hands again, that's what he would. They would all have to take their medicine and acknowledge that all this six years they ought not to have voted the Democratic ticket but ought to have bucked it just as he had done. The outcome shows that Clark knew what he was talking about and that he knew his men. He got a good ready this summer and decided that now waa the accepted time to get back into the saddle. It was dead easy I He had his good friend, Balph Mus- cott, one of the shewdest and straight- est politicians in the county and who had been standio? out in the cold with Olark for these six years—he had Ralph look after the^ first ward; William Wolsey, a director of Clark's bank, was made chairman of the delegation in the third; and Olark him-' self saw to it that everything worked alright in the second. It was a great feast of crow but Clark and his contingent were not doing the eating. Swearing they would ne'er consent, the other fellows consented. At the county convention there was more crow. The boys who for six years had been doing all the party work, wiped the sweat, off their faces and tried to look pleasant, while thev partook of the feast. Clark didn't crawl and he didp't apologize. He wanted 'em to understand that he didn't have to. They were the ones who,ought to be ashamed of themselves for daring to stand by their party when he didn't. He had attended every Democratic convention ever held in Clare county. Some of 'em balked a little at this statement for it was the same as telling them that the conventions which they had beep attending and the candidates whom they had been supporting since Clark jumped 'em iu 1896, ■ were not Democratic. Olark just chuckled and rubbed it in. . He knew he had 'em and he held 'em right down to the grindstone good and plenty. And when he let 'em up he was in full control of the party again, had swiped the party's thorny crown and crushed it down up on his own manly brow, and was their duly accredited delegate to the state convention. He hadn't crawled, neither had he apologized. At the state convention he trained with the other rehabilitated Democrats like himself and helped to evolved an artistic and beautiful scheme. It is a sort of wolf-in-sheep's-clotb- ing proposition: "Let's disguise ourselves," they said, "for if the people know who we are they'll shy at us. They will remember what an awful mess we made of it when "we broke into the state government before. Let's pretend we aint free silver men or gold men any more or free traders or Aguinaldo sympathizers or anti- expansionists or trust haters. Let's just pretend we're good and let's set up a holier-than-thou cry to fool 'em. Let's denouace and condemn and view with alarm and protest against everything Republicans have done or left undone and try to make the people believe that nobody else is real nice and good but us. Maybe we can fool enough of'em to let us get our hands onto that big surplus in the state treasury and squander it the same way we did what we found there in 1891." So, in effect, they said this in a set of resolutions, nominated a lot of men who had been fighting their party for years, pulled their garments down Si Ik-Waists We have ;just received an advance shipment of new Fall Styles of Silk Waists, in Taffetas, Satin Taffetas and Mories, white, black and colors, 5.00 Each FallDressGoods "Broadhead" goods have a reputation for service second to none on the market.

Yes, it was a notable triumph—for Clark. "Did I do any crawling? You didn't hear me apologize, did you?" says Clark. And then he winks the other eye and smiles so you can hear him down as far as Jackson's meat market and he goes hack into the bank to figure up the profits on the day's loans. HYMENEAL.

An excursion train of eleven coaches with 600 passengers on Doard, while on its way to Frankfort, was wrecked last Sunday morning when six miles the other side of Cadillac. At the time the train was going 35 miles an hour. It was a broken flange that caused the derailine of the engine and five cars, two of which were thrown over on their side. Eleven persons were injured, all women and children escaping unscathed. All the injured are doing well, the railroad authorities having cared for them in the very best way possible. Dr. Carrow of Marion was the only physician on the train at the time and he was kept fully employed till help arrived. Having no medicine, he called for something stronger than water for the injured and it was surprising how many bottles of choice "wet goods" speedily made their appearance. Thirty-eight tickets had been sold at the Clare depot but all from here escaped unhurt though all were severely jarred, not to say "scared." W, L. Adams and C. H. Van Brunt were in the baggage car, one of the cars overturned, and while the two men with them were both injured, they escaped unhurt. The rest of the Clare people were In the rear coaches* All was still immediately after the shock. But when those* in the rear realized that they had escapedi-itijuiy, lamentations began to -'reed 'the air. One, rising out of the'mud of the swamp asked first of all, "Have^ou seen my hat any place?" while another asked as to the safety of his thres dogs. A bicyclist started out to Cadillac for help but a brakem-an-OK foot got there first. ISew suits and a Sunday rifle to Frankfort free are in prospect for some of the jarred ones.
