A young man by the name of Arthur Fogelsong, living about five miles north of Alma, has had a desire to lick some body for the last two or three months, and did not seem to have much prefer ence as whom the lucky party should be or whero the battle should take place. In fact he donned his war paint and proceeded around the country whooping and shouting, "Big Injun me. He had succeeded in havinc several minor engagements, but each time friends had intervened and no casualties were re ported. For a few weeks past he has bfen lvinc in ambush for one ranK Stevens, a respectable gentleman oi Shepherd, about fifty years old and a thresher by vocation. The young war rior spied this samo Stevens driving past his wigwam on Sunday last and mounting his bicycle in lieu of the proverbial pony ho took after his prey, this same respectable Mr. Stevens. Overtaking him he made announcement to the fact that if he wished to pursue his way he must first alight from his vehicle and engage in battle for the gratification of this, the young warrior's thirst for conflict. Mr. Stevens, seeing that in no other manner ho.would be al lowed to continue his way and also being of an accommodating mind, proceeded to comply with the request, and when he had finished, Mr. Fogelsong, the war rior. was laid alomr bv tho side of his bicycle in a condition whereby ho thirst ed for blood no more as plenty of tho fluid was oozing from the wouuds he had received. An ambulanco in the shape of a lumber wagon was called which conveyed tho remains to the wig wam of his father s and there he was given chance to reflect on the devious manners of mankind and their methods of living as useful citizens in tho com munity to which they belong. The whole neighborhood is exceedingly rejoiceful. Millinery Change. On Monday last Mrs. M. Scallon sold her millinery stoc k to Mrs. C. K. Wil son, formerly of Edmore. Mrs. Scallon has during her stay in Alma made many friends among our people by her pleas ing and obliging manner of doing busi ness and it is to be regretted that this lady is to leave our beautiful village.

Mrs. A. B. Angell Passes Without Warning Into the silent Beyond. Our citizens were very much shocked on Thusday to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. A. B. Angell early in the morn ing. Mrs. Angell has been staying at the home of her daughter. Mrs. Chas. Coleman, in Wheeler, for some time past and arose and dressed as well as usual on Thursday morning but had hardly stepped out of her room and had just spoken to her son-in-law when 6he suddenly threw out her hands and fall ing to the floor passed away with only a few gasps. She had been under tho ohvsician's care at different times for about a ye ir being treated for heart dis ease and her death w as probably caused by the failure of her heart to perform . its necessary duties. The remains were j brought to Alma last evening and the funeral services will be at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Isaac Russell, this afternoon at two o'clock and will be conducted by the D. of R. of this place, which society she has been a long and respected member of. The remains will bo laid at rest in Riverside cemetery. Miss Elvira . I. Drew was born near Grass Lake, this state, fifty-eight years ago. At tho age of twenty-four 6he was married to A. B. Angell, and re sided near Leslie. Four years later they moved to Gratiot county and settled on a farm. Later they moved to Alma and purchased what was then known as the McCarty House. They changed the name to the Angell House and managed the same as a hotel until about two years ago. Six children were born to them, two boys and four girls, of whom one boy and three girls are left with their father to mourn the loss of a kind and loving wife and mother. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community. 1 isi Hal can wear a sill ft that don't buy a pair of our 69c, 88c, $1.00 and $1.50 all solid, flexible, misses the best bargain they ever had offered. CALL AND SEE US. J. L. R8ILL Fun for the Footers The business men of St. Louis chal lenged the Ithaca business men to play a game of ball but the Ithaca giants, with terribly enlarged heads over their recent successes on the diamond, calmly foiled their arms across their manly bosoms, rolled their ryos heavenward and exclaimed in the language of the illus trious Corbett, "go and defeat some in ferior antagonist first." Much as the St. Louisites detested the idea they sue combed to the inevitable and challenged the twice vanquished twirlers of Alma. The challenge was promptly accepted and today the two teams cross bats on the Alma diamond. It is to be hoped the visitors will be defeated by a large score. However, whichever side is vic torious the visitors aud their wives will bo entertained by the Alma team at tho Wright House. 94 CASH sTORE In the Vermeulen Block, Alma. few War Songs and Mus e.
