Northern Tribune. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 3. 1883. The Fan II riff tide. Cheboygan last Tuesday evening showed up its spirit of art at the Opera House. The occasion called together a crowd. The night was pleasaut and the large hall was full. Miss Tracy McLeod rendered very sweetly a piano solo, and soon after the curtain went up, introducing the tab leau, Mrs. Chandler being the directress. The costumes in the shimmer of light sparkled with loveliness, captured the audience, and as the merry cavalcade went through the evolutions there was a lively iuterest and grew with the mazes of the drill. The whole picture was beautiful, its points being given in an animating spirit. That little fan in a woman's hands, what romauce am in its folds and how graceful iu art. Miss Minnie W iltou. recited "Mejcy Patience Jones," bringing out all its odd ities very clearly and with taste. THE IMPRESSMENT. Archie Newton, the British captain, done up his role with credit. It is hard for an American lad to piay the red-coat, especially when in rebellion to his in wards. But Archie wan ucting a part and he braved it out like a little man. Fred Clement, a prisoner, bound with cords, but his American spirit was fore most, lie didn't shy much when told he should die before night. No, Fred was the Yankee sailor, and in the days of ImpresHuent Yankee pluck was some thing akiu to heroism. Charlie Uoseublad, us Captain Luff. was a regular tar. Could tramp the quarjer dock and signal to close up with the double-shotted guns. Cool ami brave the reprisal of "two uoole lords" for llermau Handy ahd bright Guineas, the cutting loose of the bauds, the whittling of that stick, with the jtrking out to bacco juice, all was well done. Charlie Soutbaiu, as Lieut. Perley, was iu his place, aim did equally well bid part. This part of" the entertainment interested the old, and the "kids" were up with applause. ' Mrs. Ella Weigaud danced the High land liiug. It is u favorite. Graceful as a little nymph, she gave to that dance all its figures with exquisite art. Ap plause would not allow her to go with the falling curtain, she .hud to renew her grace and she received reuewed ap plause. RED HIDING HOOD. Fleda I'erriu, as Red Riding Hood, Miss Aggie Yorce, as Mama, George E. Fax, as Woodsman, Fred Frost, as VYolf, Cora Bouchard, as Rolin, Annie Paquttte, as Butter Cup, W innie Vorce, as Rose This tableau ever maintains its inter ests amongst the amusements of the young. Red Riding Hood and Butter Cup were charming little elves. The chorus of Bine Bells was another ex quisite tableau, and the merry good night of those sweet little voices like so many angels, of course it was a de lightful sight. If the whole was not faultless practice will do its part for the future. Any way the schooling of the young in those graces is the surest road to happiness, because taste, culture in the young widens out in the soul a sense of the beautiful that grows as years grow. Bnt to Mr. Fax it is a unanimous voice that in everything that is to the refined pleasure of the community he has always a welcome pltee. Fred. Front played the Wolf. One would sup nose from his motions that he was an old hunter, and knew how it was the Lupin disported in bis forest home. Prof. Sutherland was master of cere monies. In the coming winter we hope to witness several such performances, or something akin to them. The young, give them every opportunity to become fine men, nud better yet, fine women. Love of refined taste, a love of art, a culture, may be slightly spoken of by the rnrie, but the rnde age is fast passing away. Men and women can be all that industry demands, and have a delight in the finer shades of life. This is eivili zation, and what is better, it is Ameri can civilization. The Cass House registered 32 guests one day this week and 28 another. Orlando Lee leaves here next Tuesday for Le Bean, Dakota. Uis father-in-law, F. M. Sammons, has anchored out there where at present are two of his sons Mr. Lee leaves behind him many a warm friend, but Le Bean has another fine man from Cheboygan. Dr. Hill and Frank Sammons will have many an old friend as a neighbor in the great west. FRANK VAf.NC'OUK BUfCIDEM. Laudanum the Memteug-er of Death. Frank Valncour was a native of Maine and about 40 years old. He emigrated here eleven years ago and followed cook ing in the camps for a livelihood. He was the owner of a good farm on Mul let Lake. This year he has been cook ing for Merritt Chandler on the state road. The crew came to town a few day9 ago, and the boys to make up for the privations of the woods, some tinc tures otgoud fellowship, sometimes to settle some little spat over their shoul ders, the mellow feelings from a social glass is deemed the angel that registers the ''all right, say no more about it." Frank has been, since in town, board- ng at the American House, and with his cookie, Andrew Fike, occupied No. 4. He was at no time drunk, but on a "go." He went to table to his meals and noth- ng unusual' was discernable. Last night, with Andrew Fike, he went up Main sc., treated the crowd at the salooil of John Becker. After that he went to the People's drug store and'fc6t a"Bix ounce bottle of laudanum. Well known and all right to appearance, if was put up as a nutter of course. He went to ed at eleven o'clock, Andrew Fike sleep ng with him. This morning when An drew woke.his companion was pulseless, dead. ' . ' " THE BOTTLE ' was more than half empty and lying on the carpet near the be I. The death of the man by his own hand easy to solve. He stout, robust of person and good of size, industrious aad generous, bis friends, who are many, have been all the morning visiting his remains. THE CORPSE, as seen, was well wrapt up in the bed clothes, the neck clear above, the he id resting on the pillow the eyes closed, the lips firmly pressed, st reaks of pur ple running along the cheeks and fore head. ' " " ' " 'iii'by ku ilttr'. The Melville Brothers are three young men who have associated themselves to gether for trado purposes. They are grocers. They have their own store; it is as neat as anew pin. Its counters and shelving in the daintiest trim. Its groceries are of the very best selection. They buy everything for cash, and with their own store, and themselves to run their own business, they think they cau under-sell any house in town. To the public they submit their merchandise for a test; hoping for custom because of the bargains given. Iu addition they have a first-class oakery where the best flour is turned into bread, buas, and the most delicate confections. Their store is In the Mel ville block, near the bridge on Third street. Once Again. The success of the Fan Brigade and Operetta last Tuesday evening has sug gested another exhibition. There were many little folks that were not there, besides many others. The originators of this delightful entertainment have consented, in view of expressed public wishes, to give another representation next WednesJay night, the 7th, at the Opera House. Reserved seats, 35 cents; general admission, 25 cents; children under 12 years of age, lo cecti. The programme will be changed so that the second appearance will exceed the for mer.

K. Ross. Rev. Magoffin drove a nail through hi thumb. It is painfully sore. The fol lowing note explains itself: To the Editor of the Northern Tribune. Sir: Will yon give notice fer me that there will be-no service, morning or evening, next Sunday, Nov. 4th, I have been suffering so intensely with my ac cident that it would be foolish for me to try to hold service. James II. Magoffin. Rector St. James', Cheboygan ThankMRlvluff Proclamation, In furtherance of the custom of this people at the closing of each year to en- , gage upon a day set apart for. that pur- . pose in a special festival of praise to the ' Ulverofall good, I, Chester A. Arthur' President of the United States, do here by, designate Thursday, the 29th day of November next, as a day of National thanksgiving. The year which is drawing to an end has been replete with evidences of Dl- j vine goodness. The prevalence of health. ; fullness of harvests, stability of peace na order, growth or fraternal feeling. spread of intelligence and learning, a continued enjoyment of civil and re ligious iiherty all thesa and countless other blessings are cause for reverent rejoicing. I do therefore recommend' that on the day abov appointed the pub- ; lie rest fram their accustomed labors, i nd, meeting in their several places of , worship, express their devout gratitude to God that He hath dealt so bountiful with this Nation, and prai that His ' grace and favor abide with it forever. ' CHESTER A. ARTHUR. By the President: Fredrick T. Frelinuuuyskn, Secretary ot btate. ; I uunkNiclvliig Proclamation. In conformity with a time-honored custom, endeared to us by many sacred asociations, I, Josiah W. Begole, Gov ernor of the state of Michigan, do here by appoint Thursday, the 2Dth day of November, 18S3, as a day of public thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God. It seems proper that at the falling of the leaf, when the ripened fruits of labor '. are gathered, we should reverently pause, and from our hearthstones and temples , of worship offer our grateful thanks giving to the Giver of every good gift for the blessiugs of the crowned year. ' Industry and frugality have been re warded; the interests of religion, tem perance and education have been ad vanced; our marvelous increase in popu lation and wealth has not effected the integrity of our free institutions; the scars Inflicted by civil war have toea healed, and a growing sentiment of fra ternal concord and loyalty to the flag' prevails among all the states of our once imperiled Union. ' i Let us observe this lhanksglvlug Day with such social festivities and relig'ous observances as tend to cement ties ot family and friendship, and foster a spir it of brotherly kindness toward all men. Lei it n 'lay for the exercise of the br.uwlfwt charity in thought and deed. remembering the words of Him who said "If U more blessed to give than to receive." In testimony whereof. I have hereunto- . set my hand, and caused the great seal of the state to be affixed at the city of Lansing this 1st day of ISoyember, 1883. JOSIAH W . HEGOLE, (iovei nor.
