"Campania" Sept. 18, '02. Dear Friends :— According to my promise I pen you a few lines descriptive of my trip to the "Old World," a trip filled with living interest to the inquiring mind of an American. We now have been five days at sea, having sailed from New York Saturday noon, September' 13th, during which time the 30,000 horse power engines of the "Campania," have driven us a distance of nearly 2,400 miles (480 miles per day) consuming 500 tpns of coal per day in the five score fires that burn below. A white trail of foam flecked water, 100 feet wide, is left by the throbbing screw. 1,100 persons ' including 400 iri tbe crew are aboard, just a comfortable load for an ocean liner. The weather although uniformly calm, has grown cooler since passing the Gulf StreaEp and crossing the "Newfoundland banks. Several steamers and sailing crafts have been sighted, wireless telegraphy being used when communicating •with Gurnard Line boats. After twelve days at my fraternal home at Grand Blanc, Michigan, 1 took the new palatial lake steamer, Western States, at Detroit for Buffalo. A twelve hour run through the storm brought us to the "Pan' American Oity," from whence I proceeded to the Parsons'homestead at Marcellus, 3ST. Y. On Sunday I spoke in the church Dyer which my gieat, great grandfather was for thirty-two years pastor. The Lebign Valley Express affords & pleasant scenic route over the mountains to the city of "Brotherly Love." Independence Hall,containing tbeLib- erty Bell ahd other objects of deep historic interest, '""The Old Flag House," the graves of Rush and of Franklin, the new TJ, S, mint, Girard College and Fairmouth Park of Centennial fame, were among the objects visited in Philadelphia, I found New York Oity enveloped in a cloud of black, Soft coal f-moke, one of many evidences of the baneful effects of the strike. An excellent birdfieye view bf Greater Nevy York was the reward of a climb of 270 feet to the crown of the Liberty Statute, whose torch is •within, view Of 8,000,000 people, and whose base is protected by a row of TJ. S. cannon. Park Row building, thirty-three stories high, was also visited, which is the highest building in the world. The presses of the New York World were calculated to "impress" a visitor to Printing House Square with a sense, of the potent powers in printer's ink. Here are grouped the World, the Sun, the Times office buildings, aud a score of other offices in close proxmity to Brooklyn bridge, presided over by tbe illustrious Greeley and Franklin. Under the shadow of the bridge stands another monument, tbe Mc- Auley or Water Street Mission, which I visited at night, monument to a converted river thief. A ramble through Wall street and up Broadway to Fifth avenue brought one a conception of the recent and the marvelous development of the Metropolis, for new steel sky-scrapers quite overshadow Trinity church, and Bowling Green and Wail street appears embarassingly narrow under the new regemine. ,/- Central Park, Madison and Union Squares and the Battery are still attracting thousands, who there seek a glimpse of nature with an hours recreation, Theoroject to tunnel North River will, if carried ont, greatly faciliate travel and commerce between Jersey City and New York, while the new .East River bridge, now nearly completed, will materially lesson the enormous strain now imposed upon the old Suspension bridge. <The shore lines of America melted into the gray mist as the "Campania" steered for the open sea about 3:00 p. m. Saturday, August 13th. Sometime tomorrow we expect to sight the shores of the Emerald Isle, and from Queenstown to send a New York mail, I proceed to London from Liverpool Saturday In company with Mr. W. H, Frost of Philadelphia and Mr. D; W. Hoste of.Shanghl, general director of the Ohida Inland Mission, in whose company I am crossing the Atlantic. It is pleasing to reflect that distance Cannot separate friends because it ia impossible for time to obliterate pleas* ant recollections. Hence, although thousands or miles may intervene-between us, Olare shall ever remain a bright spot in my, memory, sacred with the ties of friendship and home, As ever I am, Yours truly, - 0. E.

The first year German class will start to read "Gluck Auk" this week Grasshoppers are the object of study in the zoology class this week. There is a decided increase in the ninth grade Algebra class, the number of pupils now being twenty-eight. The Chemistry class seem to show plenty of interest in their work, especially the experimental part. The sixth grade can boast of a good attendance so far, there having been seventeen of their number neither ab sent nor tardy. Mrs. E. A. White, Mrs. E. G. Welch, and Mrs. L. E. Davy visited the school this week. The boys are now talking nothing but football. Last Friday the high school played the grammar room, the game resulting in a draw. Rev. N. D. Potter is greatly aiding the team by his efficient coaching. Four strictly high school games have been arranged, two with Evart and two with Reed City. Monday mornings are to be devoted to current events in the high school, for opening exercises. At the Senior class meeting Monday, James Tatman was elected president to take the place of Lora Neal, resigned. The Peet brothers gave some very pleasing selections in the high school last Friday. Ed Petit entered school Monday. A Dove Is His Mascot. Secretary Dennis E. Alward of the Republican state central committee has a mascot' which he thinks is sure to bring the Republican campaign out all right. Ever since he established his own office in the corner room of thecorner suite on £be eighth floor occupied by thecommittee,he has had a handsome pigeon for a regular caller. The bird seems to have a particular likintr "tor the sills of Mr. Alward's window. When the windows are open he comes ln frequently and walks gravely along the ledge inside of the window. Mr. Alward does not know yet whehter he is a genuine f,dove of peace" Or only, a counterfeit, but is sure he "will prove a mascot in any event.—Detroit Journal, Sept, 30th. MEN'S OVERCOATS!

Fare for the round trip it.60, • Children under twelve year| of age half ttoetidult fare'. Political Pointers. The name of Judge Dodds of Mt. Pleasant, Clare county's circuit judge, was presented to the Republican state judicial convention at Grand Rapids last Thursday by our townsman, Ex- Mayor p. E. Alward. Mr, Alward stated to the delegates there assembled that on behalf of the eleventh congressional district with its 10,000 Republican majority he desired to call their attention to Judge Dodds, witb'the hope that at some future time the candidate of the eleventh district would receive the nomination of the convention. At the Republican state convention last Thursday congressman E. L. Hamilton, chairman of the convention, made a most respectful allusion to Judge Durand's illness. Immediately a hush fell on that body of men and then a spontaneous cheer rose from tbe lips of all of them. May that spirit go on developing- until all rancor and personal vindicativeness shall disappear from politics.
