Robert Robinson and wire are among the highly esteemed aod popular of Cheboygan. On Thursday evening a large company filled their dwelling, music, mirth, melody, were the order of the hours, then a long felt want, was rlchlv suDDlied by first class refresh ments. The dance, card table and viva clous conversation kept the company to gather until 10 or is o'ciock. Wm. Smith Is running one camp. .

Perrln was holding the gaw so it couldn't get away, and Watts S. Humphrey was gently tapping a shelf iw the chanber but the thing was sensitive and determined to go off, and it did, the butt end of the shell tearing through Humphrey's middle finger, taking also at piece ; ; of the forefinger. Humphrey started, for the woods next moraing playing as good a hand as the best. Da. Prrins face was powdered and as Is al ways the case in face powdering th looks were not improved. ' ' 1 The Tribune was never so prosperous as mow, never was In such a condition to be useful as now, never had so many words of approval and encouragement as note, never was so determined and prepared to present the fairest, cleanest and best paper In Noitiern Michigan as note, Meyer received) so many subscribers as now, and remem ber there is no better time to snlserlbe for this live, just, 'progressive paper than now.

On Monday Robert Robinson , negotia ted for one-half interest in the Mattoon mill property, securing the 'shams of g- den and Taylor. The tug and lighters are included. The sum of eight thou sand dollars being the purchase price for said half interest. The firm will be now known as Mattoon & Robinson. The firm will get out their own legs in part, and propose to run the mill up to its capacity, and should, from their expert ence, judgment, ability and staying qualities, furnish first class lumber at as nrontaoie a raie as buy una. mw wish the new firm abnndantsnccess A well-known and estimable lady had nftraslon a few evenings since 1 to be on the street at 7 o'clock, when near New ton's store, a stranger, well dressed, ac costedher thusly, --Hello, Clara." She proceeded and the same hello followed. When in the light of Carmody's saloon, she sharply said to the rake, "Yon are mistaken sir In the person," when the insolent fellow saieV'I see I am, but can't T see vou homer Such a brass foundry onght to be shot, so the woman said. The way to do when any laly is thus insulted is to step in the first place and order a policeman, and Cheboygan whl fnrntsh one instantly to care for such villains. Once upon a time there was a frog The life saying stations will be closed Dec. 10th. Corn from the wrecked schooner Case sold well'. , Capt. KIrtland and daughter left for Milwaukee Monday. W. G. Boggs left Tuesday morning for abuslness trip to Bay City. Rev. Father DeSmedt left Monday for Grand Kapids on official business. The Benton House now sports a hard wood floor as well as Dan Mc Leod.

Terms reasonable. 1 . r. . . : , . Mattoon & Robinson are going to have a telephone at their mill, if it can be secured and of course it can. 1 Cheboygan is always glad when Eph raim Nelson is here, and he arrived cn Tuesday night, as full of business push as ever. - It would be a great strike to hare the telephone at the forks of the river during the running and booming of logs. Next siimmer you'll see. The new standard time was made to accommodate those who ate affectionate with lamp posts, through the moving in fluence of flat bottle inwards. A prominent Cheboygan business man objects to promoting any satanic being to the position of "boss devil,, but admits that there may be something devilish on the earth. - , , , . . J. B. McArthur loaded the schooner Danforth with lumber for Robinson; Prettyman, of Chicago. This is the last ' boat of the season for Chicago,, from this port, with lumber. The Chippewa News says that Gabriel 1b driving a hearse at the Soo, and met with an accident. No wonder, the'heurse business it not the orthodox wayof blow ing the blast of resurection. Henry Minor and R. Rapp have return ed from their Mallet 'Lake hunt with three deer as trophies. The season Is now enaea and the hunters among onr merchants are inclined to literary pur suits.

" ; '' -' i --.-.; Republicans, Greenbackers and 'Dem ocrats, declare the tone and spirit of the Tribune tobe clean,' absolutely free from all petty personalities and vulgar' ities. We appreciate our many friends and will put forth our honest efforts to serve them in any way possible. ; Enterprise is abroad, a fellow with an eye to business called In and wanted to advertise for trade a $50 bull pup for a $40 dog, and receive the difference. Ills' dog being royal, bnt ai timet were hard a cheaper dog would do him this winter. As he was of doubtful pay, we wont name the animal that was so enterprising. Morris Wheeler is a genius in adver tizing, selling goods delivering goods, making friends, keeping friends and serving Cheboygan generally.1 This week he has heard from Congress and finds out that he is appointed grocer for the people with the eagle to help him in his rapidly growing business. If you want a square true man to deal wltn go to Morris Wheeler's. St. Ignace is now connected by tele phone, they use the acoustic telephone. The sound only runs to first station, and he Is asked to tell the next , station what he wants to communicate. Th's is a very poor system of exchange, fie subscribers along the line will soon get tired of repeating messages. It soon will be pronounced a failure. The only omplete system is the Bell, such as is me in Cheboygan.
