Bran nock was excused by counsel from juiy duty in this case on account of the fu neral of his r grandfather, which took place yesterday morning, and the cuse proceeded with eleven jurors. : Thirst for News. ' ; Theth h-st for n ews that is sometimes displayedsby residents :of the rural re gions is often surprising, while the means which some of thesa individuals who are -over zealous for information,' will adopt to gratify that thirst excites wonder if not minh. An Incident which occurred last Sunday night during the homeward trip of the Maud Summons from Mullett Lake exemplifies this. When the boat was near the junction of Black and Cheboygan rivei's, some one on the bank who was hid by the darkness hailed to the boat So loud and earnest was his calls, that some of the excursion ists requested Cap t; Sammons to stop, and the boat was immediately brought to. Some one asked : 1 Whatdoyouwant?" MWhatis the news from MullettLake?" The information that he, of inquiring mind,' received from those on board, was too numerous to be recorded; The boat 1 passed on and left him in the darkness alone, but it is hoped not weighed down with the importance of vast and newly acquired knowledge. Moee Wheat. We have about con cluded that this is considerable of a wheat raising country afi er all. We no more than mention one fine field of wheat be fore we are informed of another. The lait is that of Mr. Chas. Reliant, a mile or so out on the : MackinawroailT jesjiZ2-&ytydxrgd1 wheat looks extremely well. It will not be many years before a largo amount of wheat will be raised in this country. , Departed. The tug W. S. Carkin, with the dredge and dumps in tow, left for Goderich last Sunday afternoon. Preparations had been made to go sev eral days before, as stated last week, but the storm prevented them from ventur ing out The balance of this firm's con tract will be worked out with a dredge which they propose to bring fiom She- boygan, Wis. ' YY '-v J- ' Death op an AgedJDitizen. Mr Jonn Scace,an aged citizen, departed- this life Thursday evening. Mr. Scace was the father-in-law of Mr. Chas. Bran nock with whom he has resided for the past year or more. . Mr. Scace at the time of his death was in hi3 ninetieth yearV His funeral occurred yesterday morning. Land Office Business. Business at the United StatesLand Ofilce at Traverse City, for the month ot July was remark ably quiet The cash sales were only 49 J acres for $106.40; homestead- entries 22, covering 2,512.66 acres; final proofs 29, covering 3,194 acres." , . Y. ... . Shipping Hotes.- Shipping seemed to revive a little this week, the harbor presenting a little more business like appearance. The folia wins are the vessels loaded during the week: The Middlesex, with lumber for Chi cago, by McArthur, Smith & Co. The Annie Craig, with timber for th Canada market, by Dan McRea. T.B. Rice, wirti lumber for Chicago, by McArthur, Sm' th & Co. . , Bradley, with lumber for Chicago, by McArthur, Smith & Co. : This is one of the largest, if not the largest, vessel which has loaded here thi3 season. We undei staHd that she has a carrying capacity of 600,000 feet of lumber; She did not come in the river, but was loaded on the out side from lighters. The Potter, with lumber for Buffalo, byMr.Baiiey. - Flying Mist, with lumber for Chicago, by Nelson & Bullen. There are some .other vessels loading but will probably not be ready to clear before next week. : Mullett Lake Excuesion. Last Sunday through the kindness and upon the invitation of Mr. Thompson Smith, who chartered the tug Maud Sammons to go to the head of Mullett Lake to as certain the state of improvements there, a number of citizens of this place and visitors, enjoyed an excursion upon this beautiful lake and up Indian River as far as navigable. The day was all that could be desired, and enjoyment seemed to reign supreme. Those who went to the mouth of Burt Lake, saw, many of them for the first time, the improvements which have been made there, and how comparatively little it would cost to open navigation between the two lakes and can'appreciate more fully the necessity of having the work completed as soon as possible. As for the strangers who were with the party, they were moie thah pleased with the appearance ol the coun try and will return to their homes, fully realizing the advantages that this coun try possesses for all who wish to avail themselves of them. With navigation fully established, nothing could prevent the rapid settlement and growth of the country surrounding these lakes. , A Severe Operation. Yesterday afternoon Robert Micklejohn of this vil lage suffered the amputation of his right leg about midway between the ankle and knee. For some time past Mr. Mickle john has been suffering from senile gan grene in his fooCwniclfrvbuld have ended his life in a short time. After a consultation of physicians it was decided that - the only chance Qf saving his life was to remove the diseased member. The operation was accordingly performed Thursday afternoon by Dr. Perrin, as sisted by Dr. Gerow and Dr. Bailey, of Mackinaw. The operation was success ful, .but whether he will survive the shock or not cannot yet be told, his age (sixty-four years) making it somewhat uncertain. Mr. Micklejohn suffered the amputation of his left foot from the same cause some years since. Settlement of Soldiers. Col. E. F. Brown, whose visit to the village is noted among the personals, made feelec lionsand arrangements to locate eight homesteads for as many different soldieu. These parties he expects to bring up here some time thisfall and see them properly established for the winter. Col. Brown's position aSv Governor of the Soldiers' Home gives him an opportunity of doing a large business in procuring settlers for any country, and we are glad that he has commenced to locate in thi3 section. Col. Brown seemed , exceedingly well pleased with thi3 country, and we hope soon to note that he has located many more homesteads. . Narrow Escape From Drowning. Plum Richardson, a little daughter of Allen Richardson, had a narrow .escape from drowning last Tuesday afternoon. In company with some other small chil dren," she wa3 playing on the bankoJLthe, river hear Kenan's planSflTbeen at hand shafrlLiornafe drowned. Fortunately Mr. Chas. Southom saw the mishap and succeeded in rescuing her as she was floating down the river past Mr. Amiot's shipyard. .. - , Fishing Cars. The Grand Rapids & Indiana railroad have had cars construct ed for fishing and pleasure parties. They are fitted up with sleeping berths for nine persons and contain a cook stove and housekeeping utensils and accommo dations of all kinds. The expense per day for use of cars is ten "dollars. They will be a great accomodation to tourists and fishing parties and will doubtless be well patronized. ? ; !' Sheep Killed. Last week Thursday and Friday nights some dogs got among Mr. Peter McDonald's sheep and suc ceeded in killing seven of. them. Since the dog law was repealed there is no way to secure any pay for "sheep killed in this way. If there is anything in farmers life that is more vexatious than to thus loose his sheep) we have not learned what it is. - - Morris Wertheimer- will open out a whole storefnll of good3 in Paquet's build ing, nearly opposite the postofiice, next Monday. He has been having the store room fitted up very nicely. DR0UI1ED FARHS. A Flood Greater than Since the ; Time of Noah. - : Hundreds of People Driven from Their . . Homes. A Desert Waste of Waters in the Wabash and White River : Valleys. Advices from the Southern portions -of Indiana and Illinois, shows that the rain which has been falling there for the past month has culminated such a' flood as has not been known since the time of Noah. At Evansville, ' Ind., the " water is nine and a half feet higher . 'than . the danger line. Evansville is on an eleva tion, and is not injured, but (he lowlands extending 15 miles below and 10 miles above, o n the 1 iver, are covered with four feet of water, extending Inland two miles from the natural bed of the river, and all products are washed out and the inhabitants rendered homeless. - A' large tract of- land in Kentucky, opposite Evansville, a tract of land two or three miles wide and extending fifteen miles down the river is covered with three or four feet of water. This condition of things prevails from Evansville along the Ohio river to its mouth, but the damage ill del ail cannot be told. "White river, which has its source above Indian apolis and makes a circuit out to the Wabash near Mount Carmel, is over flowing the cou n't vy. In ordinary stages, it is 700 feet wide, but (he waters now embrace a strip of countrv from three to five miles in widtn. Farms directly wa tered by it are washed away, with houses, fences, stock, and utensils. From Hazle ton to the mouth of the river the damage is almost incalculable. It is estimated that 30,000 acres are inundated, the water standing in fields six feet deep. The in undated region i3 cultivated in wheat and coin, and everything is swept away. The sudden rie look the people un prepared, and they were surprised before they could remove their furniture or get away. On Saturday, G. B. Biugham of Patoka, who has thousands of acres on the river bank, chartered the steamer Bei tie Gilbert, the only one plying on White river, and went to his farms to rescue his stock. He foud fowl3 roosting in trees, and cattle standing in shallow places holding their heads above water. Nineteen miles below Hazleton the boat anchored half a mile from the channel of the river, at a barn in the loft of which 32 men, women and children were hud dled. They were almost in despair; had nothing to eat for two days and were al most devoid of clothing. In a bain a short distance away, 250 hogs and cattle were found half starved. When the people arrived they wept for joy to see land once more. On the Wabash the same thin pre vails, but the details cannot be ai lived at All through the southern and central portions of Ohio and Indiana, crops of all kinds are entirely ruined. What the result will be is hard to foretell at pres ent , -.- TUB NATIONAL PARK. Matters About Mackinaw. Rain, rain, constantly and everlasting. There are many strangers on the island, among whom we notice the names of Hon. Mr. Hamilton, M. C. from Indiana; Messrs. Buck, Salvin and friends, 'from St Louis; John Minor and family, from Sandusky; F. B. Stockbridge, Minister to the Hague; O. Johnson, from the Sauga tuck Lumber Co., &c Fishing i3 . excellent Capt Bennett caught fifty half barrels pf white fish at his ground on Wednesday. The 22d Infantry band 13 expected here Thursday.

It . is proving a successful venture for him. MlCHILIMACKINAC. Prof. E. V. N. Brokaw, Supt of the public schools of Lansing, and family, are gue-ts with Rev. J. L. Maile. Mr. Bro kaw is an enthusiastic proficient in Wal ton's art With Mr. Frank Smith as guide, he recently visited the trout brook to the west of our village, and succeeded in taking a fine string of the speckled beauties. ' . The steamer Flora arrived in this port about noon Monday. She was carrying an excursion party from Manistee. She stopped about half an hour, when she departed on. her homeward trip. This is : the first : excursion boat which ha3 stopped here, which shows that Cheboy gan Is becoming more favorably known abroad. As an indication of the rapid develop ment of this country a3 a wheat produc ing region, we would state that the St Joe brought up this week thirty-seven fanning' mills ! consigned to the farmers in this vicinity. As straws show which way the wind blows so these mills are an indication of how much wheat grows. Duncan City Penciling. The coal business Is looking up.
