W. H. ltollins is continually improv
ing his meat-market and doing all he

obtained a new rocker-block from De

of the nicest.
We wish all our readers would take
especial notice of our advertisements.
We take very great pains in putting
them up in a nice form. Moreover we
are careful to represent no firm that is
not strictly responsible in all its claims.
We are sorry to remark that one of
our estimable citizens has introduced a
new game of chance "seven, four come
eleven." We might almost have ex
pected that so prominent a citizen
would use his influence against gam
bling. If the ladies would abandon cosmetics
and more generally keep their blood
pure and vigorous by the use of Ayer's
Sarsavarilla. naturally fair complexions
would be the rule instead the exception,
as at present. Dure blood is the best

Armada talks of arranging a loO
yard dash to be contested there within
a few weeks. We have no doubt Ar

So if any one .feels any confidence in

L D. Wieman says that lie has some
of the best soap to sell that ever was.
And he is a truthful man. lie has two
excellent varieties, the Danner and
Snow-Drop. They will take the dirt
out of . anything. You can buy it
everywhere in. town.
We would suggest' to our patrons
that to report when one leaves town or
returns to it is a great favor to their
acquaintances, as it gives them a know
ledge of their whereabouts which
might prove very beneficial to them
Our personal column is always open for
such notices. .
Sunday evening we listened to a very
leasing sermon by the Dev. Wm.
'erkins. Mr. Perkins evidently studies
his subject and does not wait until be
fore an audience for his mouth to be
filled. We trust Mr. Perkins will re
main with us. He is such a man as
we want here.

We are in receipt of an announce
ment from the Detroit Journal of the
completion of its seventh year. We
are sure no paper in Detroit deserves
better a grand success. And, moreov
er, none seems to be nearer it. The
Journal is what it claims for itself, a
You might as well borrow your neigh
bor's old shoes, as to depend on him for
your newspaper, liy the time vou get
it, it is "down at the" heel" and "out at
the too" in fact all out of date. You
don't feel like an independent man
when vou read it. You can't say "my

of your own.
We should like to know by whose
authority garbage has been dumped
along the highway and left there to
putrify. Such an arrangement is a
disgrace to a village community, as
well as one of the greatest sources of
disease. We trust that there will be
no more of this, even if it is impossible
to remedy the evil as it now is.
Josh Hedges, of Melvin, who was
implicated in the shooting there last
spring, and who voluntarily returned
home last week, was arrested Monday
evening by Deputy Sheriff (Jeo. Hard
ing of I'eck. Hedges was taken to the
county jail at Sanilac Centre Tuesday
morning, there to await his trial. His
crimination is selling liquor without
C. S. Northup, of Port Huron, was
in town Saturday. We understand
that Mr. Xorthup would accept the
democratic nomination for Prosecut
ing Attorney. If the party should
choose him they will have a strong
man. He is a brilliant young lawyer
and no doubt would have just the sand
and energy to sustain nobly the dignity
of the county.
The low place near the depot is being
filled with gravel supplied by the rail
road company. The I own has under
taken to unload it with the understand
ing it receive a load of gravel to be
used on the village highways for each
one it unloads. This is surely an ex
cellent way of getting gravel to im
prove our streets and we hone that it
will be used wisely.
Someone, seeking to avenge them
selves indiscriminately on the canine
tribe, poisoned a whole community of
dogs here last week. Sam White, Jerry
Paisley and John Mack all are bewail
ing lost poodles. It should be impress
ed upon these people that dogs, under
ordinary circumstances, are personal
property lliesame as any other animal.
As such they should be protected.
Tuesday morning when the Maccabee
excursion passed through Yale for IJav
City, a little circle of faithful "jJees"
who had arisen early enough to catch
this early bee. were waiting there to
acquit themselves of the grand oppor
tunity. Among them were L. P. Law
and wife. Kd. Menerey, Chas. Williams,
h. I . rratt. Kittle Hayes, (Jeorge Ella
and wife, and our Pnrron. Mr. Law
wa3 a delegate from this tent. Nearly
all returned on the night train. All
report a fine time.
The most handsome sight in all the
skies during these nights is the plan
et Venus, to be seen every clear eve
ning just after sunset a little to the
right and about thirty degrees above
the point where the sun disappears. It
is now called the evening star. This
planet revolves around the sun at an
average distance of 69,000,000 miles
and is next but one of the known plan
ets to tne sun. and is next to the earth
which is about '.m,000,000, mile3 from
the sun. Its year is 221.7 (lavs loner:

around the sun. as compared with our
days for a year. It is not as large

There is nothing that better bespeaks
a true life in a town than a live build
ing interest. We are pleased to notice
how many nice houses are making their
appearance in town. W. 11. (Jillett's
new house has taken on quite an ur
ban appearance. Wm. N. McKenna's
house is aglow with a new coat of paint.
I.. II. Drake will soon have his cot
tage entirely established at the head
oi' the street; and II. K. Heard has
practically a new house and moreover
one that he can rightly be nroud of.
A. W. Perguson will soon be established
in a new and beautiful home; and Dev.
Ira Pillman will soon have his house
remodeled to suit his taste. Such great
improvements surely are encouraging
to us as a community.
Yesterday forenoon we were invited
to witness one of the most successful
surgical operations that has come
under our observation for some time.
The operation was performed by Dr.
High at the Scandinavian House and
the ' subject was Prank Johnson, a
Swede, 2S years old. Johnson has been
Buffering for about five months with
empyscma, whereby pus forms in
largo quantities between the lungs and
the chest wall. The only way that re
lief can be obtained is by making an
opening in the side and the removal of
a piece of one or more ribs. The pus
is removed through this opening and
the interior kept pure until a cure is
effected. Dr. High was assisted by Dr.
(Jorner. of Dig Rapids. The operation
was witnessed by a physician from
Manton, Louis Finn and M. A. P.eebe.
Those conversant with the caso speak
in very high terms of the operation.
The patient is doing nicely and is on
the fair road to a speedy recovery.
The foregoing is an extract from the
Michigan State Democrat of Cadillac,
Mich. It surely will no very gratif yin g
to his old Yale friends to learn what
success is meeting Dr. High's efforts.

The dull monotony was broken Tues
day by the slow runaway of Marvin
llolcomb's dray. No damage was done
although the dray was overturned.
Dev. Mr. Culp went to Deanville
Thursday to meet his monthly engage

month he preaches at Algonac, Speaker

While John Mitchell was in town
last Friday he lost his pocket-book.
The book contained papers which Mr.

name is to be found written on the
inside. He would be very much obliged

D. C. Smith, who lives north-west of
here, has "jerked the bun." He has
produced a stock of timothy o feet and
2 inches long. lie also appreciates the
fact that editors and printers have
stomachs, although they are bent all
out of shape over tables, and so brought
us some apples, for which we extend
our heart-felt thanks.
Deports from the different markets!
in the state and neighborhood show
that grain will no doubt open at a good
figure. The pr'ce of wheat has been
steadily rising for a couple of weeks in
spite of fears to the contrary before

and will entitle the purchaser to stay

For the encouragement of the farmers
in general, who feel that their land is
not producing satisfactorily, we will
mention an experiment of the Dev. Ira
Dillman. .Mr. Dulman had a piece of
land on ins farm that was rumored
among the surrounding farmers as "too
poor to raise white-beans.'! t was to such
an extent the case that he could not
get any one to sow it for him. How
ever he sowed it himself and has on it
the heaviest piece of oats in this sec
tion 01 tne country, lhe soil did no
more lor him than it would do for any
other man who carefully prepares his
ground with thought for its capacity.
Last Friday evening the people of
our town listened to one 01 the most
eloquent advocates of Prohibition and
Dabor Deform. Doth of these subiects.
although very different in themselves,
were handled in a masterly manner.
And though we may not personally
agree in all measures advocated by
ultra-partizans, we do respect and hon
or all means for promoting the public
good, in so far as they are consciencious.
An opponent merely as such should be
respected. We will not attempt to give
even a digest of Mr. Malone's speach.
So we can not attempt even to mter
upon his arguments. Suffice it to say
that all that Prohibitionists claim as
to the evils of intoxicants is almost
universally conceded. The difference
begins here as to the practicability of a
local prohibition and advisability of a
general. We think we speak tho opin
ion of some of the best minds when we
say that if the saloon or open bar were
done away with the worst feature of
liquor would bo removed. Put Prohi
bitionists generally injure themselves
just here in refusing anything like a
compromise. As to Labor Deform the
question is more complex even. No
radical measures can heal it. It is of
our social system and can only be im
proved as civilization advances. Mr.
West's singing was particularly pleas
ing especially his "(Jet there". He was
