In about a week from now Mr. M. F.
Crane an 1 wife will leave this city to take
up their permanent residence in Erie, Pa.,
where Mr. Crane will probably engage in
merchandising. The good work done here
by Mr. and Mrs. Crane, in establishing and
conducting the Y. M. C. A. here, and their
pleasant social disposition, has made them
friends among all classes in the community
during the comparatively short time that
they have beeu here, so that their perma
nent departure will be generally regretted.
The little folKs with whom Mrs. Crane has
taken especial pains, organizing them and
interesting them in a noble work, will
particularly miss her. Mr. Crane will per

Fighting the Flames List
of the Lost.
Kalamazoo, Mich., 'April 30. The
Van Huron County Poor-house, located
near Hartford, burned to the ground this
morning. From llfteen to twenty inmates
are reported to have perished in the
Humes, but at the present writing none
of the names of the victims can be
learned. The actual loss of life is
hhroii.h'd In mystery. Lack of sullkleut
lire apparatus was sorely felt, and the em
ployes of the Institution could do but little
toward fighting the flumes, owing to the
panic which prevailed. Most of those
burned to death were invalids or aged
paupers, unable to take measures to save
themselves. Loss, only $15,000 on build
ing, w hich was uot a valuuble one.

Trouble in a School Board.
Chicago, III., April SO. There Is
trouble among the school trustees of the
usually peaceful suburb of Jefferson. At
the last election the candidates were J.
W. Stockwell, retiring member, and Mr.
Hodman. The returns gave tho latter a
majority of eight and he was declared
elected. At the first meeting of the board
alter election there was considerable talk
of contesting the election on the ground
that the ballots were destroyed In
the Humboldt district, and in
the Maple wod district the polls were
kept open later than the time prescribed
by law. The old board adjourned, how
ever, without taking any definite action iu
the matter. The new board then met,
elected Mr. Bodman In Mr. Stock well's
place, and organized by electing Dr.
Fonda President and Spencer Kimball
Secretary. Friday last the President called
a special meetiug of the board, which
was attended by Mr. Stockwell, the third
member claiming that he had received
no notice of the meeting. A resolution
was adopted declaring the proceedings of
the previous meeting void aud ordering
Us record expunged, which was done by
covering them with ink. Mr, Stockwell
was then declared elected. The law re
quires that the returns shall be made to
the County Superintendent within ten
days after election. This has not been
done, and further trouble is expected.
