JCosey, Jeweler. 2 7, 8 & War is Near T77"a.r ZBuilletlns- several alma boys transferred to ft. Mcpherson hospital. Washington-, August 10. Tho preliminary negotiations looking toward tho confirmation of ieacc advanced a long step today when tho secretary of stato and the French ambassador agreed upon the terms upon which future nepotiations for a treaty are to be conducted and reduced these to the form of a protocol. This protocol, it is true, is yet to bo signed and is to bo submitted to the Spanish gov eminent before tho formal signatures are atlixed, but tho administration's view as to tho propress made today was set out in Secretary Day's sentence: "It is ex pected that this protocol will be executed." It is believed that the protocol car ries within itself provision for the cessation of hostilities. On this point tho na val coutiupent is urpent that our government adopt the Napoleonic policy of re fusing to enter into an armistice without acquiring some substantial pledge to se cure the consummation of peace. What tho particularly desire is that our gov ernment shall demand as a condition of tho cessation of hostilities the surrender to the United States military of Morro Castle at the entrance of Havana harbor and some such points of vantapo at tho other important ports in the territory soon to tall under our control.

The Riugliug Brothers' big show for tho season of 1898, which comes to Alma next Friday, Aug. 19, is in all probabili ty the most colossal thing of tho kind that has ever traveled. Tho newspapers everywhere pronounce it the one big show of the universe. The Ringling Bros, have this year added a free, open air spectacular entertainment, which takes place as a grand processional street demonstration, and is a modern and gi gantic successor of the conventional street parade still a featuie with other shows. In discarding tne oia-nmo cir cus pageant and substituting tnis mg new parade the liingling urotners in troduce something entirely new, novel and worthy of public interest. It is pre sented in 0 enormous sections, or sub divisous, each one of which would easily outclass the usual circus parade, and combined present a sight, or rather a series of bewildering grand scenes, more than three times larger than the com bined processional display of any other show in America; costing more than ten times as much to produce it, and in leauty and grandeur beyond comparison. Among the IK) sections are representa tions of all the famed mounted military companies of the word, the elaborate and correct accoutrements, arms and uniforms alone costing many thousands of dollars. There are scenes of warfare in tho Puniaub. huge elephants har nessed to cannon, mounted military escorts, native soldiers, guides, attend ants and commanders moving on to the .nrrmnter with warring tribes. The famous Enclish Derby Day meet is re presented in all the magnificence of tho trpmiino event bv the hundreds of artists and performers attired as high English society ladies and gentlemen on their way to the Derby races, riding in scores of swell turn-outs of every variety, drawn by th choicest of aristocratic horses. Egyptian caravans in full equipment cross the desert with the wealth of Oriental looms, spices and riches, with guides, merchants, guards, horsemen, and herds of burden-bearing camels. There are special children's sections that outrival in grandeur of equipment and gorgeous golden splendor tho most iinjxissible fairy tales. There are ten bands of music and over 4X) horses; more than K0 capes, chariots and animal dens, and scores of wild beasts in deiu open to public view, the entire representing a sight nuchas never before has been seen here or elsewhero since the world began.

A Clever Female Swindler. Tho following was clipped from the Detroit Free Press of August 7, and was from tho Saginaw correspondent: A smooth-talking woman, who said her name was Mrs. Tracy Walters, that she lived at Brooklin, Mass., was a member of Boston W. R. C. No. G, called at the residence of Col. A. T. Bliss yes terday, stating that she was en route to Grand Rapids, and lost her purse on an Inter Urban car comiug up from Bay City, together with all her money. She desired to reach Grand Rapids, and tho colonel gave her sufficient money to pay her way to that city, where she said she expected a draft which had been sent on from Boston. It is learned today that a woman answering the description of Mrs. Tracy, and telling the same story, solicited and received money on this side on Thursday eveuing.giving her name as Mrs. E. H. Tracy, of Boston, and stating she was momentarily ex acting a draft and would then return the loan. The same lady was in Alma on Satur day last and told about the same story to Mrs. W. S. Turck, ex-Department presi dent of the Michigan W. R. C, only that sho had lo?t her purse this time coming on the stage from St. Louis and that she wished to go from hero to Greenvillo where sho expected somo money and would return the amount to Mrs. Turck on Monday. It is needless to say that the money has not been returned. We are Easy. It has at last been decided that our business men cannot play ball. It should have been decided before and then our reputation as ball players would bo sev eral degrets in advance of what it is at present. Defeated twice by Ithaca, it only remained for St. Louis to dq like wise and then our spirit would pe en tirely crushed. That they did on Fri day of last week, and in a manner to leave no doubts in our minds as to our ball playing abilities. Wo retire from the diamond as gracefully as it is possi ble under the circumstances. However the guests were entertained by our loy8 at tho Wright House, wo hoie, in a manner more satisfactory than on the ball grounds. Below we give the score by innings : i .1 4 r ? M. I.ouls o .
