Last fall a man named Underwood, resident of Greenyille, Mich., brought 200 barrels of apples to Cheboygan and stored them in the cellar of John Beck er. A few weeks ago Backer began dis poiing of the apples as agent for Under wood and succeeded in placing them all amongst our business men at $2.25 per barrel, after which he left on a trip nresumablv for his health. Mr. Under wood heard of the vvay in which tthlngs were eoingon in Cheboygan and came up to look after his property, when he arrived he found matters as stated above He secured the names of several parties who had invested in the fruit and at tempted to scare it from them, but- was only successful to the extent of four bar rels. Underwood claims he gave Becker no authority to sell the apples and sim ply rented his cellar te store them in until sueh times as he could sell them. On the ether hand friends of Becker claim that he set the price and instruct ed Backer to sell them, also that he told parties around town that they could get them from Becker at any time. The lat ter is believed to be the correct version and Mr. Underwood has returned home a sadder and a wiser man. John was seen in Detroit last Sunday aad gave it out that he was going to the New Or leans Exposition. . The Name of the Unfortunate. Every paper which has noticed the freezing to death of tho unfortunate man near Seney last week has given him a different name. Frank Lovely who brought the body from Seney ta this place says his name was Henry IToalle, and. this was confirmed by a brother who is at work in one of Thempson Smith's camps and who viewed the remains and recognized them as his brother. Mr Love ly says the deceased was returning from Seney to camp No. 4 of the M.mistiqne Lumber Co., where he had been at work for some timo, and was probably over taken by the heavy snowstorm that rag ed that day, Monday, Jan. 25th, said to haye been the worst storm experienced in years, and blinded by the 'snow lost his way and perished when only half a mile from camp. The body was found the following day by the employe of the camp, as was a'so the pack which Houlle hid thrown away a short time be fore he succumbed. A life insurance policy for $1,000 in the Marine and Railroad Life and Accident Association, of Detroit, was found on his person. A. W. Westgate has written to Detroit to see if the company is still in exigence aad if the policy is good. We also understand that the deceased had $100 on deposi; in a Saginaw bank and about $100 coming from the firm he was at work for. New Firemen's Hall. Cheboygan Fire Co. No. 1, some time ago, raised funds by balls and entertain- merits to purchase the bell that now haags in the belfry at the Town Hall, and even paid the froight on it so as to have a clear title. Companies No. 1 and 2 have been disenssinr the necessity of furnishing a hall in which to held their meetings, and decided to meet the ex pense of doing so by selling the bell to the village, and a proposition was made to the corporation to that effect, but, with a streak of generosity that seldom fitrikts eur village dads, they did not ac cept the proposition, but appointed a committee to prepare such qnarters for the companies as they saw fit. A visit to the hall will convince anyone that the committee has not only done its duty bnt used most excellent tasto and judg ment The committee took the south west room in the Town Hall building formerly used by the fire department and enlarged it by removing a partition, throwing the twe rooms together, and from what was two dark, dingy rooms the committee have transformed into an elegant hall, with the walls and celling covered with rich and beautiful paper, the floor neatly carpeted and wood-work re-pal n ted. Some new fnrnitnre has been added, and a few choice picture will bo purchased to adorn the walls. A little over one hundred dollars has been expended by the committee, and the re sult H the "tiro laddies" have elegant quarters in which la meet and transact their business. , Programme for the Musical.

The above was the comment of our eotemporary upon the first citizens meet ing held to consider the question of se curing a city charter. How was it? The question had been talked of for some time. Citizens had been urging mem bers of the Council to take some action. It was understood that a petition was to have been circulated but instead it was thought best to call a public meeting. President Frost issued a call and it was pablisbed in both papers and the citi zens were urged to attend by both, our cotemporary warning all "not to stay away and then kick" The meeting was well attended, every person had an op portunity to present their views and to vote just as they felt. One of our oldest and leading citizens told r us that he went to the meeting fully determined to oppose the city business and that be knew of others who did the same, but whex he heard the question presonted he jiiul they changed, their minds and vottd in faver of the movement. In or der lu present the natter intelligibly it was ucresMry that some one present some plans for consideration. This Geo. W. Bell did at the expense of consider able time and labor, this was all the "cut and dried'' there was about the whole question. ' WORDS OF WISDOM. Pr'g.
