Last Saturday night the sawmill and one half of tho large mill .at Duacan City were shut down for the season. W. & A. McArthur's lumber piers are piled full and they are now piling lum ber on the lowitr end of their steamboat dock. Some miscreant one night last week cut tho bell rope in the tower at the Town Hall. Such pure eussedness should be punished. Smith Brothers new tug put in her first appearaace en the river last Friday afternoon. She glides through the wa ter as though she might have some speed in her. A lad from Freedom was in Cheboygan Tuesday trying to sell a couple of young coons that he caught in a trap. The coon market appeared to be somewhat depressed. The storm signals are exhibited from the pole on the bell tower of the Town Hall. Mr. Hamel who has them in charge, has selected the most eligible point in Cheboygan. ' $ . Tho lumber mannlacturers of the Sag inaw Valley met In East Saginaw last Saturday and recommended that the boom companies close their opera tions and raft out no more logs this sea son. The nomination of Charles R. Henry, of AuSable, as the Republican candidate for Seaator from this, the 29th, Senato rial district seems to meet the unani mous approval of the Republicans of Cheboygan eoanty. The U. S. Revenue eutter Andy John son was it port Tuesday morning. The officials visited the several craft in the harbor, examined their papers and we understand found all in accordance with the requirements of law. Republicans and all in favor of the election of Blaine and Logan, should remember the meeting of the Blalneand Logan club this evening. Hon. Geo. W. Bell, E. Z. Perkins, Judge of Probate, and Geo. E. Frost, Village President will ad dress the meeting. The Rector of St. James' church re quests ns to say that it wi Mr Noyes of Buffalo, and not Mr. Coyle of Cleveland, who presented a bell to the chirca a week or two ago. Mistakes will happen in tho best regulated institutions. We apologize, but they have the bell and we are glad of it. Official notice has been given that on and after to-day a fixed red light of the 4th order will be shown from the light house now completed at the extremity of Harbor Point, to guide vessels into Harbor Springs. The apparatus will light the entire horizon, the focal plane being 41 feet above the lake. The light will be seen in clear weather from the deck of a vessel 12 miles distant. Mrs. Williams who has been keeper of the Beaver Island light has been commis sioned keeper. We are in receipt of No. 3 of "Des criptive America," an illustrated month ly which devotes each issue to the de scription of some one of the states. Tho present number is devoted to Michigan and sets forth its marvelous advantages in an able maaner. Several of its illus trations have a local interest in this section. It is finely printed, well edited and in fact is a valuable work, and is furnished for the small sum of CO cents per number. Michigan people ought to invent largely in the August number and circulate it widely. G. II. Adams & Sen, Beekman street, New York, are the publishers. Tho Nashville students at the Opera House next Tharsday evening, Oct. 2nd. Hon. Geo. W. Bell speaks at the meet ingof the Blaine and Logan club this ovening, Hon. Oscar Adams has been appointed administrator of the estate of Tunis T. VanArsdale, deceased. J. II. Elntz returned homo last even lng from his western trip, ne weni as far as Kansas City, Mo. He also visited his old home in Ohio. From the large quantities of new goods arriving for Cheboygan mer chants by every boat it is evident they are doing some business. Franels W. Cook, of Muskegon, the Catamaran candidate for Attorney Gen eral is announced for a speech at the Town Hall Saturday evening, from the fusion standpoint. Tho letting of .the contracts for con structing the drains in the Township of Beaugrand, which was to have taken place last Saturday, was adjourned to next Saturday at 2 p. m. at the same place. Archie McGregor, Steward of the Van Raalte, Saturday while, scuffling with another employee on the boat, fell and dislocated his shoulder. Fortunately there was a physician on board and he put the shoulder in place again. A friend of II. A. Blake sent him a pet from California by express. It is live tarantula and was twelve days coming through. It was on exhibition yester day at Drs. T. A. & C. A. Perrin's office. For handsome It is not a success, A five o'clock tea was tendered Mrs, J. II. Kintz by a number of her lady friends at the residence of Mrs. Jonas Wheeler Wednesday. About twenty-five ladles were present and a very pleasant time was had. Mrs. Kintz leaves shortly for Clyde, Ohio, to spend tho winter. Our cotemporary publisher a long ti rade in his last issue ttyiag to prove false the statement made in tho Tribune about a laboring man saving $400 in two years. We would respectfully refer them to John W. McGinn, president of the First National hank of Cheboygan, for confirmation of the statement. Monday a eaptain of a steam barge in the river got into an altercation with one of his men and in the melee the captain drew a knife aad slashing away cut quite a long gash in the breast of the man making a severe but not dangerous wound. Dr. DuPaal was visited and took several stitches closing np the cut. A woman with a revolver, also played a part in the rumpus, but did not shoot. The Republican county convention to put in nomination candidates for the Various county offices will be held at the Town Hall one week from this afternoon. It is hoped that the different township committees will see that their respective towns are fully represented. The num ber of delegates each town is entitled to can be ascertained by referring to the call published elsewhere. Fred Col well employed on the steamer Ste. Mario met with a painful accident Monday by which he lost three of his ringers. They were unloading some cars filled with fresh fish at St. Ignace, and Fred's hand got caught in the snatch block, cutting the little finger entirely off, it falling on the deck, and injuring two others so badly that they had to be amputated. Dr, Steinberger of St. Ig nace dressed tho mangled hand. Sevoral months ago, in June, our co- temporary astonished tho marines by announcing that tho sun would soon cross the line and ad vied them to look out for squalls. The crowing took place last Monday and the squalls were on hand. It is an old saying, and claimed to be true, that whatever the direction tho wind is in on the day the sun crosses the equator, that will be tho prevailing winds for forty days. In this section the wind was easterly on Monday, Tuesday John Dodd returned from Hammonds Bay. Ho had taken his rifle with him and when he returned left it at Sammons & Corlette'e fish market. While Mr. Sammons was out the boy who attends for him returned and dis covering'the gun, boy like commenced ex amining it, and while in the act Mr. Sam mons returned and thinking there was danger went to take the gun, and just as ho took hold of it it was discharged the ball passing through tho side of the fish market, in through the side of Bart- letts saloon adjoiniag, put a hole through the largo mirror behind tho bar and then struck the ceiling falling to the floor. President Frost will tell how it is himself, at the Blaine and Lojjan club to-night. Edward Gallagher has taken posses sion of the Spencer House, and will run it as a dollar per day house. Messrs Gero and Smyth are talking of giving a grand masquerade party at the skating rink somewhere in tho near future. We would call especial attention to O . M. Clement's new ad. in this issue. Ho tells an interresting story for the bene fit of his patrons. A Republican caucus for the Town ship of Benton, will be held at tho Town nail next Wednesday evening to elect delegates to tho county convention. The Mary and Northern Belle tho steamers running on the inland route, have both been laid up. The G. R. & I. railroad took off the train connecting with them last week. Mother Ilubbards did not turn out very numerously at the party at the skating rink Monday evening. A good time was enjoyed and the attendance without costume was fair. Judge Charles R. Brown, of St. Ignace will address the citizens of Cheboygan on political issues Saturday evening Oct 4th. The Judge is an able and forcible speaker. We trust our Democratic and Greenback friends will turn out and hear him. During the latter part of last winter considerable annoyance was experienced at the Congregational ehurch from smoke from the furnace. The near ap proach to cold weather was a reminder that fire would soon be needed, and to avert the annoyance the furnace was overhauled this week and it was discovered the top wa9 badly cracked. A new top will have to be or dered from Chicago. Last week Merritt Chandler was np to his farm on Black Lake and among his beans ho foand several stools of barley growing, one of which had 20 well de veloped heads. He took an average head and nubbed out the grains and counted 07 full, plump kernels which would make full 1200 from the one. The beans were planted in June and the stray barley at the same time. Ihe yield, considering the late season planted, is considered a remarkable one and would have un doubtedly been much greater had it been planted in the proper season. The Methodist conferanee at East Sag inaw closed Tuesday. From a list pub- , lished in the Detroit Evening Journal of the appointments, we find that Rev. II. C. Northrup comes to take charge of the Cheboygan ehurch. W.M.Campbell Mr. Leith's predecessor takes charge of the churches at Napoleon and Brooklyn, la the Adrian district. Rev. T. B. Leith goes from Cheboygan to Harrisville. Mr. Leith during his year's pastorate of the church in Cheboygan has been an earnest worker and proved a faithful and efficient pastor, The best wishes for his success in his new field, of host of friends will go with him. Capt. Chas. Kitchen, Norman Lyons and W. W. Smith own a potato patch jointly. Monday night a raid was made upon the patch by some one hungry for potatoes. The best hills in tho patch were selected and oyery tuber from sixty-five taken. It would seem 'that the digging was done with tho hands alone, as only finger marks could bo seen, in other words they were clawed out. H. A. Blake says if the same party will eome to his potato patch in the day time and Invite Messrs. Kitchen, Lyons and Smith to be present, and dig the potatoes in the same manner, he can have sixty-five more hills free and that ne fuss will be made about those taken Monday night. James Harris left at tho Tribune of fice a specimen of pottery of unique de sign and from tho source obtained is ev idently of ancient origin. It was due out of a mound near Douglass lake by Henry Laing. .Upon tho mound from which it was taken grow a largo tree, oyer two feet in diameter. Tho speci men, which seems to have been a portion of an earthen jar or nrn, shows artistic and clever handiwork. Mr. Lalng secur ed qaite a nnmber of specimens, Many of them being of entirely different de signs from tho specimen left at this of fice. There are a number of mounds in tho vicinity, all presumed to have had the same orlgii as the one opened. Tho specimen before ns shows no evidence of ever having been glazed as is modern pottery. Tho design seems to have been made by pressing in a mould; "
