SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1875. A Dastardly Outrage. Last Sunday evening, between 7 and 8 o'clock Mrs. McGulpin, who resides in the town of Beaugrand, was on her way home from Mr. Champine's, accompa nied by a little hoy and girl and a daughter of Mr. CharnpineV she was fired upon by some miscreant. So clo.-e was the wouid-be assassin that the pow der from the discharge burned Mrs. Me- Gulpin's face. With this exception, and a severe fright, she . was not injured. She then returned to Mr. Champine's where she remaintd all night, fearing to go home, on- account of her husband having gone to his work at Nelson, Strohn & Co.'s mill. A man reported to be from the vicinity of Grand Haven, and who has been roaming around Beau grand, is suspected to be the guilty per son. The 6fficer3 went in search of the suspected party, but failed to find any trace of him. The citizens of Beau grand are very greatly excited about this afiair, and we understand that two or three families have moved into Cheboy gan, fearing to remain in Beaugrand. Such outrages as this should meet with swift and sure punishment, and we trust that the officers will yet secure the des perado. "Wednesday evening the officers learned that the suspected man was at Jim Cram's, who lives in a cabin just above Vincent's point. About 10 o'clock Sher ift Pa quelle, Deputy Allaire and several citizens started to make the anest in boats. Arriving at their destination they surrounded the house and soon had their man in custody. lie was lodged in jail. He gave hi? name as "Woods and tell3 several conflicting stories, from which it is gathered that he left Grand Haven and has been secreting himself in this vicinity on account of some crime com mitted .there. As .far as can be ascer tained there is not enough evidence to convict him of shoo'Jng at Mrs. McGul pin, but a dispatch has been sent to Grand Haven to ascertain If hois wanted there. If not it is probable that he will be dis charge!. To Go Abroad. Mr. John McKay hvz pu; chased the pleasure yacht Nightengale, ot Duncan City parties, for Col. E. F. Brown, gover nor ot the National Soldiers' Home hi Dayton, O. CoJ. Brown saw the Night engale during hl3 receiU visit to Cheboy gan, and wasso pleased with her appear ance that he determined to possess her. Not being able to effect a purchase while here, he left the mntrci in (he hands of Mr. 3IcKay who has seemed the boat, and will ship it to Col. Brown on the Marine City to-day. The Nightengale is one of the finest little crafts ever built upon the straits, and will be an honor to send abrbdd. Col. Brown will christen the boat, '-Chief Justice Waite,'r in honor of that gentleman, who is an ex ojjiiclo member of the Board of Directors of the Home. Mr. McKay has also purchased for the Zoological .gardens" of the Home, the. fine pet beaver from Thomas Jarmey of this place, which will be sent to Col. Brown with the boat. ThU will be a valua ble addition to the already large collection of animals at that place. Shipping Notes. H The shipping business has besn mo;e than usually liVely this week, enough so to make up for any deficiency last week. There has been no time duiing the week but that several vessels have been in port. The schooner J. E. Bailey was loaded with lumber by -Barclay & Co., and cleared for Chicago on Monday. ; Nelson & Bullen have loaded two ves sels during the week. The A. Moshier cleared for Chicago on Tuesday, and the Kate Gillet cleared for ho same port on Thursday.' s McArthur, Smith & Co., loaded the schooners .Edward narvey ,and the Harvey , Bissell. "Both cleared for Chicago. ' The bark Cavalier arrived on Monday loaded with building stone consigued to P. and D. McRea, and proceeded to load with square timber for the Canada mar ket for the ?me parties. They also loaded at the same' time the Magellan. In Tiieik Place Again. For the first time in over six months the choir ol the Congregational Church were last Sunday in their places again. This w?? a surprise to many who had not heard of the arrangement and : a pleasure to eve;y attendant upon, the church service?. They will hereafter join in the church services, and add much to their enjoyment as well as to thei r usefulness. The choi r is at present constituted, as follows, md 5s an excellent one: Mrs.. T. A. : Perriii, orgauist and soprano; Miss M;y Bran i ock, soprano; Mr?. C. S. Ramsey, alto; J. J. Barker, tenor; C. S. Ramsey, bass. It is expected that there will bo some additions made to" the choir. . i Accident. Thursday afternoon a man named Porter, working in Nelson, Strohn & Co.'s mill, .had his hand cut on the butting saw. 'He commenced -work-' ingforthe firm at noon and before four o'clock met with the accident. It was not, however,-of a very serious nature. The Tree Seat Question. ' . . - -; (To tJw Editor.) I will try and answer "Inquirer" in last week's Tribuke. It strikes me as very probable that "Inquirer' has had very little experience in church affairs and their management, especially ia the financial part, thereof, cr he would have been bet ter posted. That the minister's salary should be promptly paid is r. necessity to the well fare of every church. How can this money be the easiest raised ? I an swer emphatically by . renting the pews. There are many who will pay 'for a seat who will pay no other way: If -the seats are to be rental, should it not be in the manner wtick will bring ths most money? When they are put up at auction the most desirable seats command a high price. In this way the church expenses are most easily met, and no injustice done to any one. Strangers and non church-goers are always made welcorna by pew holders, and there are always vacant pews enough to accomodate all who desire to come. There are other advantages. Every pew-holder is sure of a regular seat for himself and family, which is much prefer able, and mo e comfortable than having to occupy a different seat ctery week. If he chances to come in late he is not subjected to the annoyance of having to look around for a scat. There is scarcely a church where all the seats are rented. .Those which are not so disposed of, jean be left free, and thus praetically have all the advantages the advocates of free seats claim. k. t. o Duncan City Peneilings. The Montgomery called in, bound up, Thursday noon. -'. The shalt in one of the gang3 in the large mill broke Thursday. The tug Chas. L. DeCeuninck has been undergoing some slight repairs. Thompson Smith returned from Buf falo Sunday morning via Petoskey and Mackinaw. About one and a half million feet of lumber has been shipped from this port duiing the week, which leaves the docks looking somewhat bare. Mr. A. McKay, the Deputy Collector, has put up two new signs for the custom house the first which have been used since the establishment ctbo olUce some heven years ago. ' ' Mr. Callahan, tho head clerk in charge of the mercantile department of Mr. Smith's business, returned last Saturday evening on the propeller St. Albans after ?.u absence of three weeks. If we mav judges from artpeartuiccs he. enjoyed him- cclf hugel'. To be Rebuilt. The extract works 6n Miillett Lake which were burned a few weeks eiuee are to be rebuilt by Mi-. Newton in company with his b-.oS her. The Tru3ott took up a raft of timber and lumber Sunday night preparaiy to com mencing rebuilding at once. Workmen are already engaged in getting out the nece-ary hewn rimber. It is tlie inJeu- tlon to have the building completed and ready to resume operations in the i-pving. This will be good news to all ihe resi dents in that vicinity as well as to all those interested in the prosperity of ihU country. ' A. New .Arrangement. The mail tug ' Eva English, Capt. Alex. .Lelott, will hereaiter make regular trips to and from "Saackinaw three times a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sat urdays. He has reduced the price to j wiiiaai'icacn way. ine xjjgiisn also makes trips to Point St." Ignaee and carries passengers to that place from Mackinaw for , twenty-five cents. These popular prices will no doubt largely in crease travel.. . . M. E. Conference. The Michigan Conference, to which this charge belongs, commences its fourth session at : Battle Creek next Wednesday and jvill probably con? inue a week. It will be an unusually large session, composed of about 225 min isters and an electoral conference of 221 laymen, who meet at the same place on Friday, September 10th, to elect two lay men to represent them in the general conference which meets in St. Louis, Mo., May 187G. ; - TnE Sea Breeze.' The August num ber" of a little magazine with the above name has been received , and read with much interest and pleasure by the editor of this paper. It is published monthly at Indianapolis, Ind., by Masters Earnest Merritt and Harry Coughlen. The ap pearance and contents of this number show much care and. indicate' that the editors will yet make their mark' in the editorial world. : .TlIANKS TO THE PRESS. The TRIBUNE has received a very cordial welcome from the press throughout the state, and been favored with many very flattering notices, which we have preserved for the purpose of printing. The crowded condition of our columns with matters we deemed of more importance to our readers, has com pelled us to defer their publication. The papers noticing our enterprise will please accept our thanks. ; tWe appreciate their fuvors fully. Flowing Well. The Spencer House has just succeeded in obtaining a mag nificent flowing well, one of the best in tire village. It U j ust what was needed. Till Tapped. Wednesday, about no.u, the till in O'Connors' saloon was relieved of about 12 nnder . somewhat singular circumstances. Mr, O'Connors thinking it was about noon closed his sa loon and went to the Benton: House for dinner. Arriving there he was tdld that dinner was not ready, so he immediately returned to the saloon. He wa3 not gone over ten ' minutes, but in that time some one had entered and stolen the mon?y. . Looking up. Mr. J. F. nail has Just returned from Detroit where he has been selecting .goods for the fal l and , winter trade. He has put in a large slock of stoves intending hereafter to make a speciality of this brauch of the business. He will also manufacture stovepipe, hav ing purchased machinery and employed a man for that purpose. This would in dicate that the stove trade was looking up in Cheboygan. Accident. Monday morning last, Mr. Geo. P. Langdon, while engaged at the shingle mill of the firm of which he is a member, was standing near the "iog-jack-er,"when one of the dogs in a log they wer e drawing out of the boom pulied out and flew back with considerable force striking Mr. Langdon on the shoulder, inflicting a painful bruise, but fortunately breaking no bones. ' Tiie State Lands. The last Legisla ture made provisions for a review of the state swamp lands and agricultural col lege lands. This is now being done in some sections of the state, and the agents in the mean time are looking up the trespass cases which are quite frequent. This county will probably receive a visit ere lonr. ' ' Arrived. Williams & Cos dredge No. 2, for which the tug Eliza Williams started to Houghton after last week, ar rived Thursday evening. She is not as heavy a dredge as the one here before, but seems to be a fine one in every re spect. She is at present undergoing some repairs but will be at work on Monday at the furthest. Fishing Party. The fishing party, consisting of Messrs. James II. Buchan an, Chas. II. Diehl and Chas. E. Mould, of Chicago, and I'bo?. Rhode s of Colum bus. O., who arrived last week and pro ceeded at once to Mullett Luke to camp and fish, returned on Tlinrsday and re-po-1 plenty of fish and fun. Tue MoLiTon Shooting Affair. The latest advices show that Albert Mol- itor v-ho was shot at Rogers City and afterward taken to Alpena for Medical treatment is likely to recover. An ope ration has been performed by Dr. Mai den of that place, which is likely to prove successful. . Latest Patents. The following is a list of patents issued froni the United State?

At the Congic' gational Church Sunday, the subject ia the morning will be -'Christian Perfec tion," in the evening, ''Faith and its Op-! posite," "- New wheat ha3 made its appearance in this market. It is of a good quality. Some clothes were taken from the line in Mrs. Morrcaus' yard on Tuesday night. The St. Joe was on time this week with her usual compliment of freight and pas sengers. : Williams & Cos dredge No. 2 will commence woik on McArthur, Smith & Co.'s new dock on Monday. George W. Cuyler, of theirm of Mc Arthur, Smith &' Co., arrived on the North Star Thursday mornhig. Mr. P. 31. Lathrop luv? had a cut of his building eifgraved, which will here after adorn his letter heads, bill heads, &c. " ' ' " ' Mr. Cram arrived on the St. Joe Wed nesday night It is' uncertain when he Will have another dredge in operation herer ' '"'." ' vy The sW was sd high this mbrning that the "dumps" conld not be emptied, there fore the dredge had to suspend opera tions. IX ' : i Mr. Geo.

" ; . : The- McKean-Campbell combination close . their summer season at Mackinaw next Monday night with the great spcctular drama of 'The Sea of Ice." :i r, Is it not ' about time some efforts was made to secure a new : bridge across the i iver? The present one, granting that it is perfectly safe, is an unsightly alfa't and no cr edit to the place." The Marine City failed to -pay either Cheboygan or Duncan a call this morn ing. Being a little late, together with a heavy sea, probably induced her to make a call on her down trip suflrce. A riea for WTUstlingr Girls. , ' Wh'st'ing glrla andcrowlnjr htni ' Always come to 3ome b.id end." " Whence comes this choice morsel of verse ? Myriads of authors whose writ ings are less widely known, whose' senti ments are infinitely less accepted, whcSe ingeniously gotten up theories are les3 universally practiced, are eulogized arid exalted by volumes of well written books and ; articles. All informed persons are conversant -with their lives and words, and have i.t command whole pages of their sayings. How is it then that we have not the name of the talented and truly pnvetical individual w'ho-Wrote the above. It embellishes not tlA? literary chronicles of any land or nation. One might, from its extreme uniqueness of expression and conception, be reminded to turn over the pages of Sancrit litera ture, for it is without doubt a creation of ancient days. -This is conclusive from its bold ignorance of the popular ques tion of to-day. 1 There is something almost pitiful in the complete and utter fearlessness with, which the author shows himself opposed - to " womans rights.7 Thus in the researches which have been made into its origin, this has been of palpable assistance in showing that it was useless to look into modern literature of any land.f In its attempt to poetize the objects bt every day life, one recognizes a characteristic and . . lavonte plan oi Wordsworth, who as poet laureate of England preceded Tennyson. But the fact mentioned above is unsurmountable proof that the author wras of much more ancient extraction. "With the bold genius of a Byron, with the simplicity of style peculiar to Goldsmith, fraught with the beauty of Shelly, so deep and still that it ambles on the edge of sublimity, and yet with that quaint and quiet humor akin to the creations of Washington Irving, it floats down to us from the past apparent ly without parent or origin. . There were Greeks of the old mytho logical days, we would whisper "'tis of the gods." Thus it weaves about it a gar ment of mystery, deep and marvelous, which covering no labor or earnest re search has vet been able to lift from it. Its very age has wrought about it some thing of the weird and superstitions which renders its influence deep and subtle. - r ' Certain It is that somebody in days gone by has done, said, or written some thing in disfavor of whistling girls, and it had its influence too, for without some aiding and impelling force the preju dice against them, could never have reached its present point, and the above is the only production of .that tenor ex tant, or certainly the only one generally quoted. ' -'- . Why don't girls whistle? That is, why is popular opinion against it? Is it be cause' of the influence of this couplet ? or do I hear some one answer, Because boys do." (Ah, well, I confess boys' are an ill clas3 of beings whose habits it wouid not always be weir to follow.) "Because boys do." "Well, boys eat, that is no reason Why girls should not.' If any girl thinks so I would that: she tfy the practice of her opinion ; the result would be in every way beneficial to the race at large. Boys comb their hair, boys blow their noses, boys walk, boys sleep, cer tainly it is clear that we must follow some of heir habit s,why exclude the worthiest. Why is not whistling cultivated as an art? I can mention many reasons why it should be, and I challenge any one to name a reason why it should not be. All persons have the power to whistle. , On the contrary how many music-loving people mourn because they have riot voice to sing. Thus they entertain the mistaken idea that they must be as silent as mummies; and try to content them selves by listening to their 'more for tunate brothers wfio' have voices," never dreaming that the power they possess to make" those clearer, finer tones, could be developed into an accomplishment more beautiful.' In whistling it is impossible to produce a harsh or coarse s sound; -.Ev ery sound throughout the scale is delicate and true. It is unnecessary to ' add that with most voices the contrary is the case. That whistling is capable of becomiug a science is evident from the fact that its sounds afford opportunity for the finest and most delicate express ion of both tone a'nd movement j evCry slur and trill, eve ry different' shade of. powef and pitch. which only vchderAil and highly educa ted voices are able to produce, can be brought but much clearer bv anv one : a , . .,. .' wtlh a; little practice 1 hi " whistling. As in every study, those with talent arid quick appreciation will excel," and the successful ones will be as a hundred tQ one compared with' singeis. The Aaho or harp afford a beautiful and congenial accompanimeut, with its aUo, tenor and soprano tones, which soured like flutes of marvelous power and Sweetness. I have seen two young ladies, two?only, in my life who recognized and apprecia ted this power. " They loved music ; but could not sing. . Friends at home are en tertained by 'whistling, alto and soprano, with piano accompaniment. It is a novel pleasure and delights the most accurate and a ccomplished ear. -1 believe that if the merles of whistling; were acknowledged it would make broader the field of music. It would brin out a new field of musi cal literature of which the ' birds would be the model and teacher; music would be more universally enjoyed, and it fol lows that we would be the better, the no bler for it, " For what is man without music?"
