farmers, ."jno,onn. This in the face of
the fact that all three banks in St.

amount of business in the last e.u!
"Go to," brother Smith, such tales will
have to bo made to a more credulous

the stock all in this w ill undoubtedly be
the finest millinery store in this part
of the state. Mrs. Hulbcrt, who will

in that line and can be depended on to
make selections that will plea-e the

and complete. Ecr thing in the line
of millinery and fancy goods will be
found and in addition will be found a
first-class dr ssm. iking establishment.

did when they were only l,woo miles or
more from a railrood. The entire
le.ture was pleasing and instructive,
and the beautilul iews thoroughly de
lighted the audience, livery American
is proud of the natural wonders of this
country and as the Yellowstone Nat

wonders, more than ordinary interest
is felt, and everyone in attendance
must c itainly have learned something
new. For otiiselws, wc could go again

This morning one of the m st
interesting law suits ever originating
in this city was commenced by the
banking hou.se of Harrington Saviers
against F. G. Knceland for years their
cashier. The coinplaiiients alh ge that

employ Mr. Knee land was in the habit
of taking and appropriating to hi- own
Use moneys that belonged to them. The
papers uerr eerved by I'nder-ShcriH'
Claik. Benton Haiiehett of Saginaw,
and C. J. Willctt of this city, are attor
neys for Harrington A: Saviers. This
case is the st nation of the town to-day
and is c reating a good deal of talk, as
Mr. Kneeland has always been consid
ered one of our best citiens, and many
ai e bat kw atd in beleiving that it is true,
thinking that perhaps there has been
some mistake, w bile Harrington cV Sav
iers claim tlify can prove all these
and even more. Criminal proc eedings

The passage of the bill to detach two
sections of the tow n ef Pine Bivtr, all
the p.utioii of the village at Alma whii h
lies in that town and t!io anexation of
it to the town d' Arcada. hn aroused;
fury in the minds c;f many St. Louis
people. They an reluctant to b.'rego
their authority over Alma and feel
ing shom of power have indulged in
dreadful insinuations against the .'nate
The idea of the bill is to phi, , Alma
under harmonious and well dispose,!
township goc miuent. tla-ieby remov
ing the rancor which has ixi-ttd by
1 1 aoii of a belief that St. L 'i:is was
unju-d toward la r smaller liv.d. But
the t. Louis people and lue st. La:;.;
newspapers have attributed c-urup.
motives to the sanate in picsj.g the
bill, grounding the innuendoes, for
there is no direct charge,, on the r.ctiv ity
which Mr. A. W. Wright, a wealthy
citizen of Alma, has manifesto 1 to .sc
enic the annexation. I u pai t ii uh.r Sen

matter. A c 'mini tee w ill be app -int. d.
The bill passed the Senate with only
one negative. It is now pending in the
House, where the rivalries of the two
villages clash to such a degree that the
inelnbeis think the best solution of the
matter is to set up Alma by herself.
