L Cl'MMOCK. I havo always been an ardent admirer of oratory and eloquence, and have heard all the prominent orators of this country, but never till I heard Miss Me Cullough, did 1 realize that a woman could be elcquent and weave th magic spell of forgt. tfullness to sdf and sur roundings around her auditors, and hold their closest attention to her word pic tured.

TO BE COMPLETED BY NOV.15,1901. The contract for the building of the Lausing, St. Johns Sc St. Louia Electric Railroad was signed last Saturday night by John E. Mills, F. C. Norris and E. F. i'erceival of Tort Huron. It is stipu lated in the contract tha,t work is to be gin June 15 and the road to be completed October 1 5, VMl. The line will cost ful ly equipped about $1,500,000. The con tractors, who own (50 per cent, of the capital stock, which is $."00,000,are John E. Mills & Co. of Port Huron. The necessary amount of aid required along the route . 100,000 has not yet been fully raised, but.Jthe citizens of Lansing having tho matter directly in charge, viz : Jacob Stahl, Fred Thoman and F. L. Dodge, have entered into a pi rsonal bond guaranteeing the short age in the entire bonus. The amount lacking ta makeup the loo.ooo on the ! on tho t r.tirn line is a; out .1,.00 possi bly trifle kss. This amount must be seemed. The entire right-of-way ha9 been t-e-cuml, with the exception of n few in stanecs where the road is to pass through private property. Eut it is expected I that this will be accomplished this week, wh-n the engineers will be put to work. I The grading may not be commenced as soon as stated, but there is to be no un necessary delay, as it is expected tho road will be in actual operation from Lantdug to St. Johns in September certainly in October. The towns on the line will be Lansing, DiiWitt, St Johns, Maple Uapids, Ithaca, Alma and St. Louis. Tho exact route between Maple Uapids and Ithaca has yet been selected, owing to the fact that there are t-everal small villages south of Ithaca in Gratiot county that are compet ing for the road. These are Middleton, l'errint n and Pompeii, all of which cannot, of course secure the road. All tilings considered, therefore the best lir e will be selected. Tho committeo in charge of raising the bonus at this place has not succeeded as yet in securing the required amount but is meeting wuh quite good succet-s Mud hopes to complete the work next week. Lost Their Nerve. Iiarrii- I. alio A.k Ii Pangtorn Something of a Mesmerist It Seems Tho game of ball between tho Mt. Pleasant Indians and The Alma9 last Saturday promised to be a very inter esting game as tho Indians had worked up quite a reputation so far this year, nearly shutting the Normals out several times, but in the game Saturday it was tooone sided to b; at all interesting to the rooters who like to see a close game played. The Alma team was weakened considerably to what it was when it played the college boys before and grave doubts were expressed as to The Almas being able to win the game. It was Pangboru though that did it. In the first inning that the Indians went to bat he simply mesmerized them with his arm and for some reason they could not find the ball, until well along towards the end of the game when he allowed them to get a couple (if men on bases, during inuiuga, in one ca-o allowing two men to fill second and third, and then strik three men out one, two, three. Ho had their nerve and they knew it, but ! they .tuck to it and gave a fair imita tion of what they could do if Pangborn's phenomenal curves had not dazzled them In the last inning by a mistake the In dians made one sc ire t) that they saved their reputa'fou by not being shut out. However, they play good ball, are each arjd evety one gentlemen and have the respect of all who wituessed the game. The final score stoo l as follows : I in. iti i:? The New Woman. Ask Your Crocor For It. Did She Cet Her Cue from Her Western Sisters. Modesty and grace combined are characteristic Xt the woman of the frontier. The girl of the borderland was taught to become both protector and pro vider with the trusty rifle, and they were often as proficient as their fathers, or husbands.

A Very Pleasant Evening With This Society- The Alnhi Theta public last Monday night was something unique and was probably the best public exhibition of any literary society so far this year. They went through with one of their regular society meetings, presenting an excellent program, which was interest ing and instructive throughout. Miss Foote gave an essay "James Whitcomb lUdey, the poet of Commom Life," Miss Hutler an original story, while Misses Chisholm and Hard concluded the liter ary part of the program with a discus sion, "Unsolved, That the College Cur- f riculum is too full." The society as usually favored with ! musical talent and ne.-ded no assistance . in this line other than from its own membeiK Miss Messirger opened the program with a piuuo solo.
