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.

A Wonderful Display.
RinglInK Bros.' Gorgeous 30-Section Free Street
raraac.
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. Reserved num
bered seats and admissions show day,

A very pretty home wedding occurred

Miss Florence Hodgskinson, and Wm.

11. W. Clough pronouncing the words
which mado them husband and wife.
Gertrude Whiting very artistically ren
dered the Wedding March from "Lohen
grin" (Wayur) , Andante (Chopin) and
Bridal March ILumuwho) . Alter the
ceremony the guests were all treated to
a very sumptuous repast.
The bride and groom made a very
handsome couple, tho bride wearing a
white brocaded silk waist with a blue
broadcloth 6kirt and carried a handsome
bouquet of roses, while tho groom wore
the conventional black. The rooms
were very tastily decorated with ferns
and flowers, and the presents were quite
numerous and appropriate.
Tho newly married couple left on the
4 :20 Ann Arbor train for Detroit where
they expect to 6tay a few days and then
take the boat for Mackinac Island and
Duluth, from which place they go by
railroad to Minneapolis and Rochester
before they reach their future homo at
Winona, Minn. The bride is a very
highly respected young lady of this
place, and tho room is a prominent
young business men of Winona.
The happy pair have tne best wishes
of a host of Alma friends.
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

Over work, either physical or mental,
will produce weakness and loss of ener
gy. Too many business or family cares,
overwork in the harvest field, an excess
o woman's work and worry, will pro
duce mouths of misery. To prevent this
the exhausted system should be rein
forced imruediataly. Dr. T. H. Mc
Lean's Strengthening Cordial and
T.lood Purifier is an appropriate remedy.
