OC3EIZES© THE GRANGE AND INSURANCE. here in Clare in particular all things flourish or decline as do our agricultural interests.. That the farmers are recognizing their power and making it effective in organization is evident.. The development of land in this vicinity is at present phenomenal. New settlers are coming in all the time. In the county news for this week several allusions are made to this fact. The Sentinel will always be glad to record any of the facts relative to the development and organization of Clare and Isabella counties. Growth in Clare and Isabella, an Echo from the Recently Pro- posed County Mutual Fire Insurance Company. The Grange is increasing its activity in this part of the state. Already there are six organizations in Isabella and five in Clare county. G. C. Lelbrand of the Mt. VernOn Grange has an organizer's commission for Isabella and Glare counties and* is pushing the .work vigorously. The preliminary proceedings for a Grange in Grant township were passed through at the Grant town hall last week when C. C Stoll was chosen master and Julius Schaffer, Jr., secretary. A charter has been applied for from the National Grange at Washington. Likewise the preliminaries for the third Grange organization in Vernon township will be completed at the Wilson school house this evening. The Grange seems to be active in Michigan at present. No less than 104 Granges have been organized in the state from October' to October. November 12th the National Grange meets in Michigan for a two weeks' session. In addition to considerable power exercised through discussions relative to any Important public question, the Grange has recently entered ]% a new field of usefulness to the farming community, fire insurance for farm property to its members. The thgmas s. dorsey. first policies through this organization., h, *CUve does not often ask the Eepub- ■wem issued last April and such' rapid progress has been made that but recently the proposition to organize a Clare County Mutual .Fire Insurance Company was rejected by our farmers bacause this department of the Grange is rapidly insuring a large amount of farm .property. During last week G. C. Lelbrand received applications for no less than 817,000 insurance on farm property in Clare county. At present ifcis impossible for the average farmer to get insurance for his property but ■airough the Grange many a farmer receives insurance who here at least Jiad previously applied in vain. The insurance department is a state Qr- \ rjauization but as soon as a county has ] a risk of $500,000 it- -must wrth&raw '"-. vi organize a ""County Mutual of its u. itvi farming communities ate the v 7 life blood Of the nation and right WEDDING BELLS.

Inspiration Institute. A real inspiration institute occupied the attention of nearly every Clare county teacher (65 in all) at tlie high school during the last three days of last week. Prof. G. W. Loomis and Miss Lucy Sloan of the Mt. Pleasant normal constituted tne storm center with Com'r'Aldrich fomenting storm conditions. At the opening session C. W. Perry licans of the connty to elect any of her favorite sons to offlce, but this year she does ask the support of the county for the election of Thomas S. Dorsey.

He has made an excellent record in the present legislature. He is a man of the people, a level-headed business man. Clare county will do her part in giving the Senator a majority more decisive even than that of two years ago. Voter— Will you not next Tuesday exercise the most sacred of rights by recording your vote and thus share in the governmeutof the nation, state and county? -. on behalf of the board of education gave a very cordial welcome to the teachers of the county after which Mr. Loomis generated the first inspiration zephyrs with a discussion of 'Institute Ideals." Miss Sloan, in dealing with actual literature, "Among the Hills" and "Vision of Sir Launfal" transformed the zephyrs into a mighty current and as the two alternately set forth the practical phases of school life from clean floors to moral "duty, the swift currents became a real storm of inspiration sweeping away the cobwebs of being satisfied with the present attainments of our schools. In the lull of Thursday evening, good cheer and pedagogical banter whiled away a pleasant hour at the reception given by Miss Lydia Ort, teacher of the third grade in the city schools, at her home on Sixth street, while Friday evening visions of the glory of mighty Eome fleeted before the pedagogical eye as Prof. D'Ooge lectured on the "Ancient Mistress of World." In all particulars the Institute was the most successful one held in the county and all concerned are to be congratulated on its accomplishments. Nester Dam Rebuilt. From the old dam across the north branch of the Tobacco river over in Arthur township, built by the Westers years ago for lumbering purposes, has come the name Wester Dam by which the school district and the locality is designated. Last July during one of the many floods the old dam was swept away. But Eoss Brothers of Beaverton, who now own the lumbering interests, had a quantity of logs below the flam, that could be taken on down to 'Beaverton only by floods suddenly let loose as controlled by a dam, as well as having 250,000 feet of lumber above the dam, found it necessary to rebuild it. They had but fairly started when the water washed through below and swept all away. Laying a large beam across the river, again they started the construction, but before completion was reached the beam broke in two places and all was again swept down the river. In the .third effort they determined to do the work right by driving piles to make the structure substantial. But scarcely had they started when the foreman got his thumb smashed under the pile driver and again some delay came. But at length the work is about completed and speedily the floating of logs down the river to Beaverton will be con- . trolled as in days of old. * SCHOOL DEPARTMENT | a-^s-^a-^w-^ea-^e-**^©-*^'©-***.-© MAPIE TATMAN, EDITOR.

In chapel Monday morning Eoy McKinnon gave a speech about, "Trouble at the Isthmus of Panama," Flossie Gaily has left school. Judge Carpenter. W. L. Carpenter, the Eepublican candidate for judge of the supreme court, is the type of man whom the people of Michigan love to honor, ln addition to his eminent legal attainments, he is respected and admired in all the other lelabions of life by all who know him. The writer resided several years in the village of Orion, adjoining which on his farther'a farm Judge Carpenter spent his earlier life and all speak kindly and with pride of the boy and young man who has attained to eminence in the legal profession. With such a type of manhood in all of her candidates the Eepublican party of Michigan would never need fear the attacks of a n y of ber foes.

' The? district comprises the counties of Gladwin, Eoscommon and Clare, so decidedly Eepublican in complexion that his election is assured.
