I'he natural advantages of Cheboygan
and vicinity have been,- of late, so thor
oughly canvassed that it only remains in
this series to' notice its detail, the varie
ties of vegetable?, fruits and grains.;vhich
may be successfully produced.
The spring opens ou$ liens at n some
what later date than in the central and
southern parts (of the state. A compiV
sauon ior mis exists in me iacr, mac, in
this region, the. depth of snow remains so
constant und uniform during winter that
the ground seldom freezes to any extent."
As a consequence, it quickly warms in
the month of May and crops grow rapid
ly until matured.
In the line of vegetables, nearly all
kinds grow abundantly. As being prom
inent, we notice potatoes, beets, turnips,
carrots, parsnips, cabbage, lettuce, celery,
pie-plant, asparagus, onions, caulillower.
squash, peas, beans and cucumber. Mr.
Wm. Smith, who has resided on the Che
boygan River for about eighteen years,
says: "All garden vegetables do well
here and are more tender and crisp thau
those grown in the vicinity of Detroit
and same latitude." Mr. Smith is a suc
cessful gardener and horticulturist, and
kindly presents the following list of .va
rieties of fruits with the information ap
pended. His experience, vithah''cn
thiisiasm for the culture of fruits and
flowers, entitles his statements to a ready
acceptance. Respecting fruit trees and
an J small fruits, he says : "The follow
ing is a list of the different kinds of
which I feel confident will endure the
severity of our northern climate. I will
name none which I, have not tested. Of
apples the following. can be successfully
cultivated here: Red Astrachan, Telof
sky, Calvert, Duchess of Oldenburg
Gravensfein, Jersey Sweet, Dominie,
Fameuse or Snow apple, Red Canada,
Ben Davis. All varieties of Siberian
crab apples r are hardy. .The following
named varieties are among the best, 'both
for ornament and for use: Trunsce.id.'iit,
Hystop, Yellow Siberian, Rsd, Golden
Beauty, Oblong.
Of plums, the following are reliable:
Green Gage, German Prune, 1 1 idling's
Superb, Smiths Orleans, Onlin's Golden
Gage, Yellow Gige, Columbia, Purple
; ' Of cherries, the following are approved
varieties:" Bell Magnitique, Early Rich
mond, Late Duke, May D.;ke, Reiuc llor
tensc. " ' '
Summary, of varieties Of apples, ten;
crab apples, six; cherries, five." Con
cerning otlier .lruits, Mr. binith says:
4With pears 1 havenot had much experi
ence. Dut some varieties will uo well
here. I have tested twenty-six varieties
of strawberries within the past nine
vears. All stand the climate well except j
one, the Agriculturist, which sun-burned. J
I believe we can raise as good strawber
ries nere as in any pan oi tne state.
Five of the best varieties , in my collec
tion are the Jucunda, Wilson, Russel's
Prolific, Triumph DeGrande and Ken
tucky. In this connection it may be
well to remember that our crop of straw
berries mature at the' time when thesup
ply is running short in our large cities.
With the completion of railroad facilities,
there seems no good' 'reason' why the
strawberry crop of this region may not
find a profitable market in Detroit and
Mr. Smith also raises a fine collection
of flowers j He says: "Rose3 of' every
description flourish here to perfection.
Of the annual and per annual flowers, I
have tried about two hundred different
varieties wfcicti have a thrifty growth: I
think the time is not far distant when the
hardy sort of grapes will be successfully
raised on the shores of our inland lakesT
Red raspberries and black-cap raspberries
are hardy and produce ell.'V; "Raspber
ries, strawberries and blackberries
abound hi a wild condition which' 'is' &
guaranty that they1 can be : successfully
cultivated. ' ':
The following varfetles of field 'crops
grow well with, as nearly , as can be asr
certained, the following average per acre :
Wheat, 22 bushels; barley, 45; oats, 50; po
tatoes, j200; peas 35.- Ryepvill probably
sustain its 'proportionate average.' 'The"
earlier varieties of com are easily brought
to maturity in favorable locations, r ,As
illustrating the remarkable growth of po
tatoes; the writer would, mention the field
belonging to Mr. Allan Smith, located . on
Mackinaw street, in the west part of the
village. The ground was formerly covered
and" filled " withr cedar stumps, logs and
brushwood. The hills look as if ready to
burst, and will probably average each
from 20 to 35 good-sized potatoes. Each
hill ha3 but one stock which is very
thrifty and is grown from a piece of pota
toe containing but a single eye. In pre
paring potatoes for seed, thi3 fact is worth
remembering, as it is claimed that more
perfect potatoes can be raised from such
sets. ; With these facts and results ;before
us, is it not safe to predict that the raising
of cereals and graius will ere long become
a leading pursuit in'thts region? . ;
' A Singula Freak of Lightening.
" Wednesday evening, about 8 o'clock,
during the heavy, rain storm, the resi
dence of Mr. Zimmerman which is situa
ted in the west part of . town, was struck
by lightening. The bolt seemed to strike
the chimney, of the rear portion of the
house, sadly demoralizing it down to the
roof; from which .point it. followed .he
rlclgeof tnfcroof-until itr reached fthe
junction of the roof up n the front pu t of
the hocse, where It iScnerAted, and fol
lowed the valley down, to the eves on each
sidp, that on the south side going on the
iilside' or the roof until It came to the cor
ner pobt, which it followed to the ground"
leaving its1 effect both upon the out and
inside of the duilding, as shown by dis
placed plastering and siding. OirthV)iorth
side it followed the tin valley down on
the outside. until. It reached , the .caves,
whre it.seemed to drop about a; foot upon,
the roof of ale nto addition, going through
the same with"' hut. little; daraaff to the
rof, from which p ace it followed a hem
lock studdhg to the ground, badly bhat
tering It. In this leanto was the pantry,
where the lightening left its mark by scat
tering the dishes in every direction. 1 - v
The family of Mr. Zimmerman was in
the house at the time and all experienced
quite severely the effects of the slip. k. with
the exception of the oldest girl, who was
asleep in a bedroom; Singular as it may
seem, notwithstanding that her bed was
covered wi li -plastering torn from the wall
by the lightening, she was not awakened
by the disturbance. The lights n the house
were all extinguished by the shock, leaving
them to recover Irom their shock and
right in total darkness. It was certainly
a' very narrow escape.
The Theater.
The McKean-Campbell combination
have been here most of the week. Their
engagement opened on Tnes lay night with
Camllle,,to a crowded bouse. The play
was put on in the usuai excellent style of
the company. Oa Wednesday, owing to
the heavy storm,, the company' di4 not "ap
pear. Thursday night, notwithstanding
theunpl a3 nt weather, the house was full
and the entertainment good.
Many citizens of Cheboygan having ten
dered Miss Mclvean a farewell benefit on
the evening of the last-appearance of the
company in our -'village, the same vtook
pb ee last night, oa which occasion the
comedies of Chiimicjr Corner and Rough
Diamond were produced by the company
in:hcir usual successful manner. The full
house evinced ho high appreciation of the
company by our citizens generally. After
the performance, a large number rcmaiutd
and cnioyed asocial dance." All unite in
Voting it a good time.
Miss McKean and Mr. CiRipbill have
made many friends iu our midst, and we can
cordially commend their company to the
amusement loving public wherever tiny
may go.

A Bear Caught.
For a short time past a bear and two cubs
have been committing some depredations
up the river in the vicinity of the residence
of John Schannenck - A- few nights since
they took a young calf from Mr. Shannenck
and this decided one of his sons to attempt
their capture. Obtaining the assistance of
a young man, Michael Smith, they went to
the spot where the calf was, knowing that
when the aalma's were hungry they would
return, and buil t a rough house, and placed
come bait inside, and set a, large bear trap
n the door. - Thursday morning they found
that one of the young ones had been caught

It turns, out that the "wiid man" is riot
so .very wild after all, notwithstanding
that his name is Woods. As we anticipated
last week, there was no evidence against
him and he was discharged. Since being
at large, he has exhibited no very - wild
symptons, merely wandering about .the
streets very much as many other men do,
and had it not been for the temporary no
toriety that he obtained by his arrest, he
would, never have attracted a moment's
