Trouble In the (tamp.
Wednesday evening a caucus was held
in tho township of Beaugrand for put
ting in nomination candidates for the
several township offices. Heretofore a
non-political ticket has been nominated
and the township committee was made
up without regard to politics, but two
of them happened to be Democratic, and
they signed a call for a Democratic
caucus for Wednesday evening. The
citizens turned out in good numbers and
everything weat along smoothly until
an informal ballot was taken for Super
visor, when it was found that James
Barclay, a Republican, had a majority.
Then Supervisor Sullivan, the minority
candidate, got up and announced that
the caucus had been called as a simon
pure Democratic caucus and no Republi
cans were to vote or be voted for. This
created quite a flutter and caused con
siderable disgust even among many of
the Democrats, and the result was about
two-thirds of those present left, and the
rump caucus proceeded to set up a ticket,
and notwithstanding their claim to be
inor a DtMiMirriitir caucus thov nomin
ated a Republican for one office, to give
lcath of Ir. A. I.. Curtis.
Some weeks since we announced the
death of Dr. A. L. Curtis, a former resi
dent of our village, at Camden, New
Jeney. A letter received from his sou,
Charles A., gives the following particu
lars: The disease was congestion of the
brain, and Ins death quite sudden. About
3 o'clock a. m. Mrs. Curtis was awakened
by the Dr. getting up, and she noticed
him groping over the foot of the bed as
if in tho dark, although the gas was
lighted, and in reply to what was the
matter he answered, "more light, I can't
see." She got him back into bed and a
physician was summoned immediately
but in two hours he was dead. He was
conscious and gave minute instructions
in regard to his business, He did not
suffer any pain but passed away quite
ly, He was 50 years old, and his loss
will be severely felt in the community
where he lived, as he was highly esteem
ed by all. He was presidiug elder in
the First Presbyterian church, and
superintendent of the Sabbath school,
and was secretary of the Y. M. C. asso
ciation. The doctor had many warm
friends in Cheboygan, who will sympa
thize with the family in their sad afflic
tion. Charles writes that his mother
and ! sister Carrie are broken
hearted, and that iheir home is lonely
without their beloved husband and
father. There are many in our village
who have a kind remembrance of the
genial manners of the deceased. He
and family were highly esteemed as
residents of our village and are borne
in kind remembrance byall who knew
them. Charles writes that he was elect
d a member of the board of education
of Camden, and his numerous friends
and acquaintances will join with the
Tribunk in congratulations.

Keep the Wuteh-FIre It urn In
An essay read before the W. C.T U.
There is a period in all moral reform
when it seems impossible to do any
thing but to stand and wait an inter
val when there seems to be no progress
made, when workers in the moral vine
yard can do no more than prune a dead
branch here and there, or plant a vine
or two. We borrow from an ancient
warlike custom, this admonition, "keep
the watch-fires burning." It seems dull
work to the spirited soldier who enlist
ed for the ardent and strong employ
ment of battle, to bring his fagots, and
light them, and keep them burning that
the friend of the cause he rights for may
know where to rally.
How cheerless and cold the night air.
How desolate sits the solitary sentinel
as the slow-moving hours wearily pass.
His duty seems irksome and profitless.
He can let the fire die down till there is
only a laint light left, yet, if he but re
flect, what a glorious work he is doing.
There are friends forhis righteous cause,
but they are scattered. They need a
rallying place. That faint light on tho
mountain brow tells the wandering
comrades where they may assemble. It
is the strength of their languishing
cause, wait and see what that flickering
fire, kept burning through the dreary
night has done. The companions in
arms assemble slowly, one by one they
come out of the darkness, grasp each
other's hands, and swear fealty to the
cause of truth and right. After making
their plans of attack, they move upou
the enemy's works with a momentum
nothing can withstand. The battle is
gained, victory perches upon the stand
ards of the united band. Now the soli
tary night watches begin to realize the
importance of their discouraging and
spiritless task. What if the fires had
gone out. No matter then how ardent
the wish of each wardual of the little
army, that their dearest rights should
be maintained. Ther strength was at
tenuated and they were powerless. It
was the sentinel's beacon that brought
them together, that made them invinci
ble. So sisters, 1 think it is with us and
our cause, especially here in this town
where the temperance work is so unpop
ular and it is eminently proper that this
society should be organized; that it let
Its moral light shine about through the
darkness; that if we cannot be so aggres
sive as we wish, we can keep the watch-
fires burning,thattne friends of our cause
may come out of the darkness, clasp
bands with us. When the time for a
forward movement comes, as come it
will, the patient work we are doing in
creating a public sentiment in favor of
reform will not be in vain. There is
something to encourage us. Much effec
tive work has been done by our honored
president, almost alone, among the
children and youth of the place. Already
we hear them reiterating the chorus.
learned in the temperance school. We
hear them conversing with each other
and promising to reform from by-words
and other had habits of speech and man
ners. "Cast thy bread upon the waters
and thou shalt find it after many days."
None need enter the work of moral re
form expecting an easy task. Patient
waiting; a continuous discharge of duty;
a trustful dependance on Him who notes
even the sparrow's fall; a courage to
labor on in the hope of victory eyen
when circumstances are most discourag
ing; a wisdom which labors in the spirit
of the sentiment so beautifully express
ed hy others thus:
"In essentials unity, in nonessentials
liberty, in all things charity." Let these
he the qualities which each member or
our union shall contribute. May this
little Are we have kindled in the midst
of darkness continually grow brighter
and brighter; may our movements find
friends among all who ought to be in
terested in this great work until by ana
by as the result of a small beginning,
temperance principals may prevail in
