The girl is 15 years of age and is a daughter of John Pennell, the young man a grandson of Uncle John Fahr inger, all of Liberty township. It seems the young couple were out buggy riding Sunday night, when the attempted indecency is said to have oc curred. The case was heard before Squire Fisk Monday afternoon, when the evidence adduced was found not to be sufficient to hold the young man to the grave charge, and he was dis charged. M. Donnelly appeared for uie ueteiise, while J. V. Itagan and Jas. Donovan were on the side of the young lady. The case attracted con siderable attention, Squire Fisk being compelled to adjourn his court from his office to the Common Pleas Court room in order to accommodate the crowd. Vacation Time Is at hand and is gladly welcomed by all, especially those whose duties in life have caused them to greatly run down their syste.m to meet the re quirements, physical and metal, forc ed upon them. With these and oth ers, it is important, whether at home, at the seashore or in the country, that some thought be given to diet, and as further assistance to. Nature, a good building-up medicine like Hood's Sarsaparilla had best be re sorted to. If the digestion is jioor, liver deranged and frequent head aches seem to be the rule, Hood's will change all this and enable ever one to return to their home and busi ness in a refreshed state of mind and bodily health.

On Thursday of last week when it became known that Henry Carv was dead, sorrow hovered over the entire community, and many were the ex pressions of regret and sympathy lor the bereaved mother and sisters.; For five weeks Mr. Cary had been lying sick at the home of his mother. At first he was taken with the jaun dice, and was not thought to be in any danger, but the disease culmina ted in catarrh of the kindeys and stomach, from which he died after suffering untold agony. All that human hands and hearts could do was done for him, but disease had its sway and the young life was cut down in its youth. He was born in Napoleon on the 17th of March, 1873, making him aged at the date of death Ti years, 4 months and 22 days. He was the only son of the lateCapt. Henry . Cary, and leaves a wid owed mother and two sisters to mourn his early departure. The deceased was one of promt nent young men of Napoleon, indus trious and respected. He was a mem ber oi Uo. r, luth Uegiuient and prominent K. of P., both of which organizations largely attended his funeral, which was conducted under their supervison. Rev. M. L. Dona- key conducting the religious services. The funeral was held on Sabbath and was one of the largest ever held in JNapoieon. The noral display at his home, tokens of love and respect from friends, relatives and those to whom the deceased was bound by society ties, was beautiful in the ex treme, and showed with what es teemed he was held by those who knew him. Taken by Surprise. Saturday being my forty-first natal day and the fourteenth anniversary of my great suffering, dear Junior League with our benevolent pastor Mr. Williams as leader, and other dear friends, came to my secluded room and strewed my bed withnowers, cheering me with loving remem brances, song, prayer, smiles and sunshine which beamed from their loying faces, all of which I value highly, and I thought as each one lay down the flowers of the Master stooping down on each head to place a crown, that the crown be studded with stars in memory of this day's service. There are many dark places to lighten, many sad hearts to cheer. It is these friendly acts and the christian sympathy which rob wealth of its power, extracts the bitter from the cup of sorrow and opens wells of gladness In our hearts. We do not always see the golden links shining in the-chain of human events, but they are there and will some day be revealed. Thanks seem like a cold and for mal word to say in return, but please accept such as coming from a true heart, with love and best wishes in return. Mrs. E. A. Camerqs.

That dull, heavy feeling is due to a torpid liver. Biliousness, Headache, Malaria and Indigestion are all liver diseases.

DEPLORABLE ACCIDENT. Young Boy Smothered in a Grain Chute. A most deplorable and distressing accident occurred at Grand Rapids on Tuesday of last week, in which the fifteen year old son of Newton Brown lost his life The particulars of the accident are as follows: Young Brown with number of companions was playing in and around the grain elevators, one of their amusements being jumping in and out of a grain vat. At the time the employees at the ele vators were loading cars with oats, and had cautioned the boys to desist from their amusement as there was danger of being sucked into the chute and smothered. The men even went so far as to drive the boys out and away from the vat, but young Brown returned and renewed the amusement of jumping in and out of the vat. He tried it once too often, and was sucked intothe chute, and while help was near, and aa ef fort made to pull him out by the hands, which were visible when the cries of the boys brought assistance, it was without avail, and the boy si-nk out of sight. It was then that ii hole was cut into the lower part of the chute, through which the body was rescued. It was just nine minutes from the time the boy was sucked into the chute and his body rescued, but life was almost extinct. The physician, who had been summoned, was on the ground when the boy was rescued, said the heart fluttered perceptibly four or five times, but the boy's mouth, nose and ears were choked so with oats that resuscitation was im possible and the young life was given up. The victim was a bright young boy, the idol of his parents, and loved by the entire community. His tragic death cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood, and is a sad warning to his young companions against practicing such dangerous amuse ment. NEW YORK WORLD, Thrice-a-Wcek Edition.

She leaves a hus band, three daughters, eleven grand children and many friends to mourn their loss. The late Mrs. Harriet Goodell was one of the best of wo men. Nobody could be her enemy. She was goodness to all, a quiet peaceable neighbor, a lovinz wife. a fond untiring mother, was loyal .to menus and would not speak evil or anybody. She was a pattern of modesty, peace and goodness. If anybody carried out the "Golden Rule, "As ye would that men should do unto you do ye even so to them," sne did it, and without assuming to be better than others Industrious, frugal and unselfish, she lived to do others good, and will be generally mourned and missed. She was many years a sufferer, enduring her afflic tions with patience and approached the end of her life with resignation. Briney. Helena M.

O, blessed hope for that meeting where there is no sorrow, no sin, no woe and no death, and where we shall neyer say good bye. Funeral took place at the C. U. Church near McClure, conducted by Rev.
