Many of Them to Be
Made on Highways
Streets In Had Shape thin Year
Other Item of Interest Picked Up
Around the JleiropolU of the
The work on the streets in the yillflge
of Red Jacket ban teea stopped for this
season and nothing in thin way can be
done while the weather remains as it has
been for the past few weeks. The heavy
and continuous rains that have been
coming dcwn lately has stopped the
work and it is not likely that it will be
resumed again this fall unless it clears ud
within the next few days.
The streets haye never been in as bad
condition as they aie at present and this
is on account of the rain which has been
coming down so often aud plentiful. It
has been impoHsible to keep the streets
clear of the mud. Siret ComoJsHioner
John Ford has done the best he could,
but it has been a futile tank to try to do
anything while the present condition of
the wenther exists.
The comniisnioner said yesterday that
the work done this summer was not as
much as had been contemplated earlier
in the season and that the work laid out
had not been completed and that it
would be necessary to do a great deal of
street work next summer. The prfoci
pal work that has been done th's sum
mer has been in putting in new street
crossings and they have not all been -put
in yet. Oa the principal streets new
cross-walks baye been put in and many
walks have been put in the middle of the
block, where the block is a long one.
This improvement has ben very much
appreciated of late, especially since th
roads have been so muddy.
I'renideut Vivian sh.vs tbatf many of
the streets will have to be rocked again
next summer as they should fcuve been
this season and that tha work will have
to be commenced as soon as the snow is
off the ground.
A well known taxpayer in speaking of
the matter of street improvement saM,
yesterday: "Why don't the village try
dome of the new pavement, say, for in
stance, the macadamized roads? There
seems no reason why it would not proye
as good here as in the larger cities and
notwithstanding the fact that it would
cost a little more I think it would prove
a great deal e"",per in the long run.
Then it would gi-ril.v please the bicycle
riders and they are low alargenumber.',

The insurance commission o! this State
has issued the following circular:
"It has come to the knowledge of the
insurance department that the citizens
of this state are, in many localities, being
swindled and defrauded by worthless and
irresponsible insurance companies,
"Companies that have any financial
standing desiring to do business in tbU
state will and do comply with our laws.
"No roan insuring his property in com
panies from outsiile of the tate need do
more than to ask his local agnt to show
his certificate of authority to write the
policy he offers. He must have such cer
tificate "Companies who are not authorized to
write insurance in this State, have no
standing here whatever, and should a loss
occur, the insured would be without a
legal remedy in the State
"Companies that are authorized may
be sued if occasion requires, in the home
courts where the fire occur.
"The agents who solicit for such fraud'
ulant companies or aid in placing policies
for them are criminals before tbo law.
Several fires have fately occurred with
insurance in such companies and not a
dollar of loss has been recovered and
this department is powerless to aid. .
"I herewith giye a list of some of these
disreputable, out-law concerns now
known to the department and others
will be announced when ascertained.
Most of these are mere myths without
legal existence anywhere, but are scatter
ing policies and collecting premiums wher

A Huecee.lnl Production.
For some time past thinking men of
the theatre have realized that the day bf
one real artist surrounded by a company
of sticks has passed is gone forever, for
which the fates be praised! Aud hardly
an issue of an important paper appears
that does not contain this idea, expressed
bv some well known writer or actor,
Edwin P. Hilton, a manager of over
dozen years good standing, has long felt
that to take advantage of this would be
excellent business judgement; and in ar
ranging forthe production of the new
dainty operatic comedy, "The Gay Mat
inee Girl," in which be will star thoe
public favorites, Monroe and Hat. be
clams tnat everyone of the twenty-two
member of the company is a player of
established reputation, endowed with
talent aud ambition of the right kind as
a consequence. Mr. Hilton teels that he
is not boasting when be says he will have
thebrigbest, neatest, richest and funniest
production of the year, ana, if to em
phasize his claims, the critics, wherever
the company has been seen, have had
none but good words for it and the com
edy. Manager Luddiny ol tne opera

The attendance at the "Banquet of All
Nations" at the Light Guard Armory
last tvening was all that the ladies hav
ing the affair in charge could desire and
from a financial as well as a social point
o? view it was an entire success aad the
ladies are to be congratulated.
The hall was prettily decorated and
tables arranged, one for each of the na
tions. The idea was carried out further
by the waitresses who were attired in the
costumes representing and worn in the
country whose table they attended. The
eat ah'es were also characteristic of the
lifferent uationsandthetables were deco
rated with things to show thenationality.
Business at the different tables was
brisk from the opening to the close of the
affair and the only thing that in any
way interfered was the fact that some
of the eatables got rather short - late in
the evening as the ladies had a larger at
tendance than they expected.
During the evening Karkeet's Ideal or
chestra discoursed sweet mucic and a
program consisting of musical numbers
by tome of the local talent was rendered.

The foot bill game at the Athletic park

be the first game that has been played
here this season.
The Iebpeming club is coming with the
ntention of winning the game and the
high school club hopes to be able to put
up a good game against their husky iron
country opponents. The local club has
been considerably strengthened since the
game at Ishpeming last week and have
been doing all the training they could
They do not hope to win bat expect to
hold the iron country boys down a little
better than they did last week.
The best of good feeling exists among
the members of the two teams and there
will be none of the wrangling on the field
which generally characterizes foot ball
games and tends to make the spectator
dislike the game. The game will be
called at 3:45.

On Saturday Octohet-2, the Copper
Country Evening News published n re
print of tbe St. Louis Republic beaded,
"Trade in bogus diplomas; boguscolleges
grant fraudulent medical certificates;
hundreds posing as physicians who are
not entitled to practice, nearly all hold
ing these diplomas are ignorant of tbe
rudiments of medejn
The article further goes on to state
that there are two ofthete boguscol
leges now domiciled in Illinois. Up to a
few months ago there was another hold
ing a charter from the State of Wiscon
sin, but in consequence of the removal of
its headquarters to Illinois the charter
has been forfeited at the instigation of
the State officials.
Long before tbe above article appeared
in tbe local papers have we warned tbe
people of the copper country ol the un
scrupulous men who are practicing med
icine; there are thousands of them scat
tered througbouttbia country, who made
a living by praying upon the sick and
ailiicted; we have long warned tbe people
to be careful whom they employ as their
physician, as be may be one who has
either bought or stolen a piece of paper,
and after filling in his name, calls ita
in eyery walk of life, in every trade
and in every profession we find some
who are an honor to'their fellow work
ers while other are a disgrace. But in
no other instai enn one so hoodwink
tbe public asi tie medical profession.
Before entrust iiC your medical adviser
with your motey, health or secrets, be
sure that he is u physician or is connect
ed with a reputable medical institute;
avoid all medical institutes whote propri
etor dares not uee his own name and
never having gradunted from a medical
college, is obliged to hide bis identity by
advertising tbe name of some one as
chief consulting physician of his institute.
The people of the copper country have
been fleeced so often by these sharks, that
we deem it our fluty to caution them to
be on their guard.
Be careful to whom you entrust your
lives; investigate the standing aud rep
utation of the bead of the concern or in.
stitute with whom you do business; we
want to be investigated; Jhejhead of our
concern is a graduate from one of the
leading medical colleges of New York; be
is registered at Houghton and in almost
every State in the Union; always look to
the head man of any concern, thereby
judging the reputation and - standing tf
tbe assistants. Remember we treat and
cure all chronic, private, nervous, deli
cate, blood, skin, kidney, liver, bladder,
stomach, rectum and female troubles.
