' Quite an exciting runaway occurred last Saturday. A team belonin to Nelson & Strohn, and standing in front of their store, became frightened and ran south on Main street at a furious pace. In front of the watermlll store they took a Turn to the 1 ft, The fence suroundin William McArthur's yard was apparently no obstruction to them, neither was a hen-house in the rear of his residence, but after demolishing this they soon be came entangled in a labyrinth of fences, and not being able to quick enough de cide which one they would go through next, they were secured. No damage done to the horses or wagon further than a broken reach, but the surroundings to Mr. McArthurs house had the appear ance of having endured a bombardment. Shipping Notes. The bad weather during the week has prevented most of the vessels chartered tor this port from ai riving. The ship ping business therefore ha3 been very light. The and A. Moshier were loaded by Nelsou, Strohn & Co. The America arrived Friday morning, chartered by McArthur, Smith & Co., and is being loaded. The Bissel, which left Chicago over three weeks ago to be loaded by this fiim, has not yet arrived, having been under repairs and Waiting at Manatowoc for good weather. The Dreadnaught left here Thursday loaded with sundries. The Francis Ada also left on Thurs day. The coasting schooner Lookout loaded with fish barrels and also left on Thurs day. Duncan City Penciling. Tuesday night a party wa3 given by Mr. C. Mills to the boys before going into the woods. About forty couple were present, and a good time enjoyed by all. The propeller Tecumseh got repairs trip.- Hie captuln was well pleased with the work, and seemed much suprised that such work could be done here. Since the mill shut down things have been very quiet in town. The Leviathan left on Friday afternoon for Point St. Ignace, where a vessel grounded in the morning. The men are ail preparing for lumber ing operations. A portion of Mr. Smith's men have al ready gone into the woods. Accidental Shooting at Little Traverse. A serious and well nigh fatal accident occurred at Little Traverse last Sunday night, whereby one of the leading citi zens of that place came near losing his life. James Bell, of the real estate firm of Bell & Dickinson, was accidently shot by the discharge of a revolver in the hands of Henry A. Rollins. The ball entered the right side of the neck and passed in a downward direction towards the shoulder, and lodged out of the reach of the surgeon's probe. The wounded man suffered very little pain from the wound, and seemed, as well he might, happy over his escape from in stant death. Mr. Rollin3 will no doubt be a little more careful of fire arms here after. . . Potatoes. We will put up Cheboygan County against the world for raising potatoes. Mr. David Smith had fifty-five potatoes on exhibition at Kezar's meat market during the week which measured one bushel. . This is an average of over a pound pound each ? Who can beat this ? Mr. Chas. R. Smith a day or two since dug a piece of ground eighteen feet square, planted to Goodrich potatoes, and the crop measured twelve bushels, the potatoes averaging very large. We will not mention the exact size for fear our motives may b.e misconstrued. ' Missionary Meeting. Rev. J. L. Maile left the village the early part of the week to attend the an nual meeting of the American Board ol Foreign missions, which convenes in Chicago, and continues from the 5th to the .8th insts. President W. J. Andrews of Marutta College, and Ex-President Hopkins of Williams' College, are an nounced as the principal speakers. Re turned missionaries from India, Japan, China and Japan, will also address the meeting. The auxilary Woman's Board of Missions will also be largely repre sented. - . : . Another Call for Street Lamps. . (To the Editor.) 44Hlt 'em again" about the street lamps. We might have at least eight or twelve on Main street, between Third street and the watermill store, and I hardly think to have them lighted every dark night say from six to ten o'clock, through the winter, would cost $100 with cost of lamps and putting them np included. , Another thing we want, is a "Reading Room." I have been told that the flne3 lor intoxication should, or could go in that direction. How is it? Who knows? Rex. NORTHERN MICHIGAN. The Convent of the Society of St. Francis at Cross ViUage. W. A. Smith, editor of the Charlevoix Sentinel, visited Cross Village last week, and from his account of the trip we make the following extract concerning the con vent at that place: "The great attraction at Cross Village is the convent of tho Societ- of St. Fran cis, situated about three-quarters of a mile from the village proper. It was es tablished in 1S55 by" Father Weikamp and the society, and is a striking monu ment of what patient, persistent labor caYi perform. Everything which pre sents itself in the way of buildings or woodwork was made by the hands of the members or the superior. The main en trance lcad3 us into the chapel, beauti fully and tastefully arranged and adorn ed, but of most peculiar interior con struction. The apartments where the members of the society worship during services are separated from each other and the body of the chapel by a system of screens which entirely hide the occu pants from the gate of any outside, but affording a full view of the altar. The choir gallery is constructed upon the same principle. The good priest cele brated Mass in the morning, and wc had an excellent opportunity to observe the mode of worship. Truly solemn and im pressive are the Mass ceremonies of the Catholic Church. Father Weikamp conducted us through the various apartments of the large buildings, and everywhere contentment. thrift, order and neatneass were notice able. The farm of the convent embraces a clearing of about 100 acres and is per fectly worked, and within its bounds there is not a stump or a stone. As an illus tration of the fertility of the soil, Father Weikamp intormed us that from two and a half acres of land he raised this fall 1,150 bushels ol potatoes or over 400 bushels per acre. An orchard of bear ing fruit trees is in close proximity to the convent, and level fields of ripe crops or grain stubble stretch on the sides. A neat hospital has just been completed by the society, which also contains a chapel and will soon be ready for occupancy. arJJiisho5pital stands tliQ tomh CO structed by Father Weikamp which is to receive his mortal remains when his life labor of love and worship is completed. We entered the Mausoleum with the pi ous gentleman and gazed .with awe and sincere reverence into the grave which will at no distant day receive his dust. St. Francis D'Assise, who lived in the twelfth ceu tiny, is the patron saint of the convent, and his life-size image stands within a glass enclosure over the main entrance lo the chapel. A chime of three large bells are in the steepJe which sur mounts the main building, and in clear weather they can be distinctly heard seven miles. UEV. JOHANNES D.UlN ALDUS' WEIXE5IP, the superior of the convent, is a Prus sian by birth, and is fifty-six years of age. He was educated in Rome, and has trav eled extensively through the Holy Land' and wc saw many relics which he brought with him from Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Nazareth. The good old priest treated us and ours with such marked courtesies that we shall always remember him with a feeling of pleasure. We part ed with him with an honest reverence for him aud hi3 work. May he keep above ground yet many years." Supreme Court. The October term commences on Tuesday. After three months' vacation, the judges will proba bly rush business. The docket contains 110"cases. An appeal from from the de cision of Judge Cochrane of the superior court of Detroit, sustaining the new tax on liquor-dealers, will come up in the case of Youngblood vs. Sheriff Sexton of Wayne county. This is the most import ant case on the docket, and is set down as No. 100 Both the state and the liquor dealers have engaged very able counsel to conduct this suit, in which money and morality both have so much at stake. Railroad Accidents. During the month of August there were 114 railroad accidents in the United States, of which 35 were by collisions, 10 each by mis placed switch, wash-out, and cattle on track, and 49. from miscellaneous causes. Twenty accidents paused death, 20 injur ies less than death, and 74 caused no in juries. Twenty.seyeri persons were killed and 110 wounded. During the 12 months ending with August there were 1,152 accidents, by which 204 persons were killed and 975 wounded. The County Legislature. The Board of Supervisors meet next Monday, and will generally overhaul and settle up the business of the county, and equal ize the assessment of property. The po litical duty which devolves upon some of the older counties, of dividing into legislative districts will not trouble them. We do not possess even an entire represenative. District Conference. The District Conference of Grand Traverse . District of the M. E: Church is to hold its first session for the year at Norwood com mencing October 19th. The usual varied programme will be observed, and a gen eral attendance is desired. Fashion Notes Ladies' cloth suits are again worn. Bustle3 have been entirely abandoned in Paris. Velvet and feathers constitute largely the trimming of felt hats. Stylish stripes and plaids must' not be bold in outline or color. Much hem-stitching will be shown on cuffs and collars next winter. , Tlie polonaise buttoned behind is the newest feature of the season. Heavy silk embroidery is the right thing for black velvet jackets. The felt hats of the coming season arc fine and soft as velvet to the touch. Outside pockets are worn, made to ap pear as though suspended from the waist. Black velvet jackets are cut short be hind and -fall open from the throat in front. Overskirts are worn long and narrow, draped in a novel manner at the sides, and are too narrow for bustles. The English walking hats, the Derby, and a bonnet with a hallo brim and rather low crown, are three of the leading mod els. . Latest 'importations of French cos tumes for autumn and winter show more novelties in small details, but no decided changes. . The crowns of fall hats a3 a rule are somewhat lower and more oval, while a greater number of brims are seen straight than rolling. .There is comparatively little demand for the long ostrich feather, on the new hats, though ostrich tips of all hues are much worn in clusters. While felt hats will be almost univer sally worn throughout the fall months, and after that confined for ordinary wear, velvet is anticipated as the material for the regular winter hats and bonnets. In trimming felt hats flowers are called into use on occasions where color Is needed and not found in the other garni ture, but are not classed with the most desirable accessories of this material. The new polonaises buttoned behind are very graceful garments that show a fine figure to advantage,' yet merchants say they will only be worn by young ladies and those who adopt extreme fashions. Black lace iseffectily introduced in the lmrnings of the more expensive bon nets, while a noveuy khumu as Russian lace adds a - creamy-white thread lace ' that promises to become popular. , " The new goods shown in imported costumes are the new Russian cloths like figured camel's hair; lady's habit cloth; brocaded Wool; basket-woven cloth in plain, plaid, and striped patterns; and the striped Algcriennes. Fancy feathers of all kinds and colors play a conspicuous part in the ornament ation.of the new hats. Every variety is seen, from a barn-yard cock's plumes to birds' wings, heads, breasts and stuffed birds entire., some of which last arc quite large. Felt hats show all the new shades of cream, unbleached white, gray3 and browns, and are designed tobe trimmed in combinations of extreme colors, as, for instance, feathers to match, with a scarf wine or wine or orange red, or loops and bows in harmony with the hat, the whole to be touched with a dash of scarlet in the wings and plumes. A light gray felt, with it3 wide brim drooping at the back and rolling upward at the sides and front, introduces flowers in its trimming with admirable effect. The outside trimming is a sash of light blue silk deftly wound about the low crown aud fastened in a large bow on the right side; while the -brim, faced with silk to match the scarf, receives a half-wreath of full-blown pink roses and blue silk loops. Harper's Bazar say3 of the latest im ported suits : In some costumes there is plain basket-woven stuff, plain goods of the same material and silk; others are of figured camel's hair with velvet and with silk, or of striped Algerienne with plain solid-colored Algerienne of. the promi nent shade in the stripe, and perhaps silk or velvet; brocaded woolens are some times used with plain wool, but most often with silk; the cloth suits are trimmed with shaded braids. One lead ing color is preserved throughout the costume, and no decided contrasts are seen, though there are often lines and threads of gray on dark sombre grounds. To be Enforced. A circular to the Prosecuting Attorneys of all the coun ties in the state has been issued by At torney General A. J. Smith. It directs them to prosecute immediately any li quor dealers from other states who can vass for the sale of their beverages with out having paid the tax imposed by law. Act. No. 220 of 1875 declares them to be guilty of a misdemeanor, and the pen alty is a fine of $25 to $100, with im prisonment, if not paid, for ten to ninety days. ' Land Office Business. The cash' sales at the United States Land Oflice in this village for September, were only 125 acres for $307.28.' Number of homestead entries 127, covering 14,382 acres. Final proofs, 27 covering 4,988 acres. An Important Appointment. Mr John Morris, for several years warden of the state prison at Jackson, has resigned and ex-Auditor General Wm. Humphrey has accepted the vacant position. "Wrecking Tugs. It would seem that the Straits is to be well supplied with mean3 to save vessels in trouble. The Leviathan has been sta tioned at this place for some time, and of late-with not enough business to pay the crew, ' . The tug Prindivillc, according to . the dispatches, has left Port Huron for the Straits, ami will be stationed in this vi cinity during the fall to look after wrecks. The Prhrcfiville, we believe, wasstationed in this section hist season, and did effect ive seryiee. She is said to be well fitted for the business. The River Tiig Asso ciatiou has decided, we learn, to send the large and powerful tug Crusader to these waters accompanied by two scows and the necessary divers, steam pumps, hawsers, etc:, to remain until the close of navigation. The Crusader is well known here having spent a good share of the summer at Duncan. We understant that the Crusader is already on hei' way to this port. With all these mans of safetv at hand, vessel owners should feel com paratively safe CnEBOYGAN Beef. Messrs. Kezar & Spooner on Wednesday killed a beef which had been raised and fatted in Che boygan county, which was equal if not superior to any placed on the market here this season. It was very fat and the meat of superior quality. This is a practical illustration that there is no nec essity of going out side of the county for beef if, our farmers would turn their at tention a little more this way. Arresed for Forgery. Hiram A. Reeves, acting Treasurer of Presque Isle County, was arrested a short time since for the crime of forgery by a sheriff from Watertown, N. Y.-s. He was agent for sewing machines about a year ago, and when a machine was sold for cash it is said that he would forge the purchaser's name to a note and send it to the com pany for collection. His forgeries amount of several thousand dollars. A Rough Passage. The party of Cheboyganites who left for Chicago last week Friday morning on the Montgom ery had a very rough time of it. The party left the boat at Manatowac Sunday night and went to their destination by rail, having had enough of the water. was ever upon the 1 L'Ch worse the niglit the Equinox went down a few weeks since. Ready for Business. Somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty-five men arrived 011 the St. - Joe to go into the woods for Mr. P, McArthur of Saginaw- They under the charge of Peter McRca, and will get out square timber. This Avoiild look as if this firm at least in tended to get out an average amount of timber. We have not learned what part of the country they will work in. A Large Yield. Mr. Luke Burdo has just harvested his crop of potatoes which were planted upon Mr. Peter Mc Donald's farm, with a result that is worthy of newspaper mention. Mr. Burdo planted nine bushels of potatoes and dug 450 fine ones. This is a ratio of increase that is hard to beat. Commenced . Operations. Nelson, Strohn & Co. started a crew of men in the woods on Thursday to commence their winters operations. It is not their intention at present to do a very large business this winter, a3 they expect to run only one camp. The men sent out are under the charge of-Mr. Kilbie. In Dry Dock. The propeller Mont gomery went into dry dock at Chicago on her arrival there the early part of the week. This was probably rendered neo essary on account of injuries received by grounding on Bois Blanc on her last trip down, a3 noted in the Tribune. ' Miscellaneous Items. A Georgia editor offers to dress his pa per in mourning for the death of any body whose mourners can pay $10. Jlr. Anthony Trollope arrived in San Francisco on the 26th of September, from Australia, having made the passage from Sydney of over 7.000 miles in the remarkably short time of twenty-five days. . A foreign paper says Mr. Gladstone still indulges in his favorite exercise of felling trees. He goes to work in true woodman fashion, with his braces thrown off behind and his shirt-collar unfas tened. Pv.i oeder, the Baltimore man .who proposes to cross the ocean In an air-ship, has his machine almost ready. Our read ers may depend upon having a complete obituary notice of him promptly, on time. Mr. Ah Pow killed Mr. Ah Kow in San Francisco in a dispute about five cents worth of Ah Kow's meat. Where fore Ah Pow must be worth. , hunsr five cents The New York Witness exhibits very bad taste in continuing to be published after all the other papers have announced its demise and moralized thereupon. Such conduct shows a very lofty disre gard of that fraternal feeling -which should exist between journals.
