Whatever others may say for them selves we can truthfully assert that we never had a free pass. We have always paid for our rides on the railroads. Of course, like all newspaper men, we have had thousan I mile tickets or trip "passes" as they arc called, really trip tic kets. Hut we never got them until we ha 1 contracted t do a certain a. mount of advertising for the road for a certain number miles traelor a certain number of rides on their road, and signed a contract to this effect. We think our other county newspaper brethren have fared the same way. If anybody has received free passes, it is not the country editor.'' Jos. Sartor, Jr. is isiting friemh in Canada. Mrs. Jos.

The crowd was large and appreciate e. and the music was of the highest older and ""'V' 1 ' -oi.orooes, ,n iissoeouc on uie pioi uimic proM'tij. themselves to be artists of the highest degree, and Alma people will hope to see them in concert again in the future. If Alma had a society for the preven tion of cruelty to animals it could find a fitting subject t o prosecute on short notice. We refer to the brute who looks after J. (iargett's dairy s'.eck. Xot a day r asses that he (Ice s not unmer cifully thrash tluin around the barn yard and in the barn using a hen'.y black snake w hip and for no appaient leason other than to satisfy his own cruel natuie-. If the re is any h.w thai can reach his case he should be made to s.iff t the penalty he deserves. The traveling dentists wh are here this week, calls Alma an "ornament for one man." They were not struck on our Arcadian ne ighboi St. Louis ' - iit'!ii'Uil. "o, we understood before they hn here that the aforsaid combination v;:n not stuck on Alma, the reason being that there were too few sackers here t suit them. Since they have been iu St. Louis their agent has been here and said that their brass band cure was tak ing like wildfire iu St. Louis and th.ij they were coining money. Verily Fro. Smith, the alw.ve tale tells its own n:or- ah Pine Fiver lays over Arcada for suckers every day in the week. It is about decided that Alma will celebrate the "glorious fourth" this year, and preparation for the event are already well under way. Of coarse this will be the grandest celebration ever held in Central Michigan and sec ond to none ever held in tie state, and the inhaHtants for miles around should begin preparations to visit Alma on that day. Xothing. not even money, will be .spared to make it a red letter day for (Jratiot County. Among the attractions will be a drill by the St. Johns Zouaves. There w ill be numer ous brass bands, and among them our "own and only." Femeniber the day and date and govern yourselves accord ingly. We have often heard it remarked that people don't appreciate a good thing when they possess it, and we have for some time been of the opinion that the citizens of Alma don't appre ciate the splendid band they are so for tunate as to possess. Their open air con cert hist evening was simply an artis tic success. Thoe people who were cracked on the music made by the min strel band last week, of coupe didn't enjoy it; as ene man, who has probably been through two or three earthquake and cyclones and learned to like that kind of a rac ket, remarked, "they don't make noise enough." Well the y must cultivate a different taste now if they w ish to enjoy the open air concert!; of Wright's Opera House band. "Xoisc" is not their forte now. but a first-class selection, played in a tasty manner, is. Here are a few of the many re marks we heard at the Wright House after the concert, from traveling men, than whom there is not a more discrim inating class iu the woild. "X'ever heard liner music made by a brass band." "They play with such exquisite taste." "Didn't hear any Matting during the entire concert." "There is not a band iu the state that plays a higher order of music." "Femarkahle that a town of the size can get up such a band." "They certainly have a spendid conductor.'' "The cornet and baritone solo were as neat as 1 ever heard." and many more. Surely Alma should be verv proud ef her band and give it substantial encouragement. Frank F. Pollasky was in Detioit the f;. st of the week. Decoration Day will be appropriately observed in Alma under the auspices of the (i. A. H. post. Alrca Church Notes- ( oNii KEOATIoN'A E. irpriso at the parsonage on That :o 1'ii '.ay evening was a very pleasant af fai,. It wa so quietly and admirably 'one that the Ddiiine was constrained to make his bow. Sincere thanks to all who in any way shared in thisex prt ssion of go d will.
