The rote in Benton township last Mon day fell 5 short of the number polled a year ago. Sidewalks are coming into fashion again and are being used extensively by pedstriauis. Work at the ship yard of Rancier & Richie is lirely, they ara full of busi ness just now. As the beautiful disappears from the utreets it reveals some unsightly piles here and there. The Algomah is making her trips be tween St.. Ignace and this port without the slightest difficulty.

Represen tative Bolger has strong hopes of getting the bill through the Senate. The Chicago Herald last Sunday says: "'Mr. R. W. Hyman jr.. has just returned from a dear hunt in Michigan." It was probably a hant for dears it meant, as deer hunting is out of season. Hyman i usually connected with such dear hunts after the game has been secured.

Wanted A Democratic editor to figure a success for the Republican party out of the recent state election. From past experience they know how it is done.

The spring birds have not yet but in an appearance, but awnings are be ginning to blossom, 0. M. Clement be ing the first in the field, putting his up last Tuesday.

If Ramsay is such a soft thing for our cotemporary, why all this anxiety to get ridof him. It is well known that the edi tor of that sheet for years past has in dulged in periodical spells of kicking Ramsay out of the Tribune office, but without success. It will be remembered that sometime since our cotemporary had a spasmodic spell of "reform" and was terribly down on gambling. It is generally supposed that he had been scooped, since from his own sheet he is a confessed gambler, as he has been am ouncing the fact each week for some time past.

The Northern Brewing company left at the Tribunk office a case of bottled beer of their own manufacture. Numer ous experts have tested it, and all pro nounce it without a superior. It is per fectly clear of any sediment; of a rich color and exceedingly pleasant to the taste. It is evident that Maloney Bros., the proprietors, manufacture as good heer as is made. They guarantee it en tirely free from adulteration, and there is no reason why they shonld not control the beer trade of Northern Michigan. The result of their first brewing shows that in Mr. Smidt they they secured a brewer that has no superior. Monday Charles Wilson, a resident of Beaugrand, went to the polls in that town to vote.
