The masons are getting along licely with the 'walls of St Masy's school build ing. Should the weather continue fa vorable this week will see the walls of the first story about completed. The shipping in transit through the straits will find Cheboygan harbor from now until the close of navigation, very acceptable. Several erafts have found refuge here from heavy westerly "winds this week. George Bunker opened school in the school house at the Tallman settlement last Tuesday. Mr. Bunker was one of the graduates at the last term of the Cheboygan graded school and la well qualified for a teacher. The assembly of Knijthts of Labor meet in their Hall, Kesseler block, every Mon day night. The membership is growing rapidly.

The tool house on W. & A.tMcArthur's lumber pier was broken into sometime between Satnrday night and Monday morning and four suits of oil cloth clothes stolen. Suspicion rested upon some of the crews of vessels in port, bat a thorough search failed to materialize the missinr goods. The Parana made a remarkably quick run from Chicago on her last trip down. She left there Saturday eveni ng and ar rived at Duncan City Monday afternoon Under the command of Captain Pollock she has always made excellent time and Mr. Smith has been more than satisfied with her sailing realities. , This Is largely owing to the good qualities of the skipper, no doubt.

Invitations haye been sent to the State Fish Commissioners of Ohio.' Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin to meet at Milwaukee Oct. 17 and 18 and confer with prominent fisneimsn con cerning the best methods of protecting the lake fisheries and .increasing the supply. A description of the man found drown ed last Sunday was telegraphed Capt. Gibson at Buffalo, and he confirmed the belief that the body was that of John Templetoo, who jumped overboard from the propeller Buffalo. Capt. Gibson tel egraphed to have the remains buried here, at as little expense as possible. Mollis Harris and Wm.,T, Watts 8. Humphrey's horses, did not trot at Chi cago. Arrangements were made for a race Thnrsday, but the managers of the fair postponed it until Satnrday, and as the horses were entered for the races at Kansas City this week they had to leave Chicago last week in order to be on hand on time. A body of a man floated in near Pack ards mill last Sunday. An inquest was held and a verdict of drowning given. There was nothing on the man by which he could be identified, but it is generally supposed the body was that of the look out on the propeller Buffalo, John Tern pleton, who committed suieide by jump ing overboard in the straits. Dr. J. B. Patterson, of Rogers City ar rived up on the Atlantic Tuesday morn ing to attend the Senatorial convention at a delegate from Presque Isle county. He reports a disastrous fire at Roger City Saturday night the International hotel burning down, entailing a loss of $4,500. By some it is supposed to haye been the work of an incendiary but the general impression seems to be that it was caused by carelessly throwing down a lighted cigar stub. Last week St. Janie' Episcopal chnrch receiyed a bell a present from Mr Coyle, of Cleveland, step father of our fellow townsman Chas. E. Mould, Mr. Mould paid the freight, S. S. Eddy prevlded the rope and Messrs Quay & Son hung the bell, all free gratis, so that our good friends of St. James have their bell in position in tho bellfry without costing them a cent. It is needless to say they all appreciate the thoughtf ulness and liberality of all concerned. Mrs. A. R. Thayer received a telegram Sunday announcing the death of her mother Mrs. Allen, of Lansing. It was only a few days previoms that the deceas ed had bid good bye to her daughter whom she had been visiting for several days, and took her departure for home and the sad news was wholly unexpected, Mrs Al len during her visits to Cheboygan has made many acquaintances in Cheboygan, all of whom will regret her demise.

We are indebted to Capt. Chas. E. ; Kirtland for a sample ef a new brand of nails, maaufactuied by the branch of the North Chicago rolling mill company at Bay view, near Milwaukee.

We acknowledge the receipt of the wedding card of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Stlmpson, Jr. The better half was Mrs. Emma E. Howard, The marriage took place Tuesday, September 9th.

The com pany ask for no bonus, no exclusive right, nor do they ask , that the village commit itself In anyway except to give the right to put down the mains. The council voted to grant the petition ' Whether or not the company will pro ceed depends npon the success they meet in getting like priveliges ia neigh boring towns. Rev. Willis G. Clark, pastor of the Baptist church, following the scriptural admonition that it was not good for man to be alone, on Thursday Sept. 11th 1884, at White Lake, Oakland county, Was married to Miss Alice Chandler, Rev. L. Chandler tying the knot Mrs. Clark will not only be warmly . welcomed to her new home by the peo ple of the Baptist church, but will find many warm friends in every denomina- . tion to welcome her to a home in our, midst, and who will join the Tribune in wishing the happy couple peace, pros perity and happliess and a long life of usefulness. A representative of the Tribune re cently made the rounds with Dr. Rex- ford on his visits to his eqolne patients. At the water mill stables a horse was -examined that the the doctor had remov a large tumor from two days previous; the incision was healing rapidly and the horse was doing -finely. Several other horses la the same stable were be ing treated for 'different causes and the employees pronounced them all progres sing rapidly toward recovery under the doctor's treatment, At the Duncan City mill stables the doctor has seyeral pa- , tients and all appeared to be improving. Owners of horses in this locality should consult Dr. Rexford whenever their hor ses are ailing instead of attempting to treat them themselves, as he has fully demonstrated his competency since lo cating here. August 4th our cotemporary published an article headed "A Mystery." The substance being that the mother of John Shehan, who was drowned while em ployed on Laughloy McCnlleeh's drive, had written to Dr. Beach that her son had returned home the day before she received his letter notifying her of h! death by drowning. We haye seen a letter written by William Shehan, a brother of the drowned, at Park Corners, Canada, in which he states that his mother nor no one else ever wrote Dr. Beach any snch letter. William writes: "I got a letter from the man that George was working with saying that George was found and buried. I was very glad to hear that he was found." So the mys tery vanlsheth when the truth comes oat. From the letter It would appear that the man's name was George instead of John.
