Their Entertainment was Very
Successsfu! and was Given to
a Crowded House,
LUST COURSE ENTERTAINMENT
The Committee who Selected Talent,
for 1907-00 are Lobe
Congratulated.
The entertainment given last Tues
day evening In the Opera House by
the Aloia College Alinaroons was moro
than satisfying to their large aud
lence. Tho entertainment was the
last numlier and the best of a lecture
course which was exceptionally strong
this year. The members of the Alma
roons quartette are Mr. Herman N.
Morse. 1st tenor: Mr. Ralph McNitt.
2nd tenor; Mr. George Sutton, bari
tone, and Mr. Maynard A.Cook, oasso.
The accompaniments were played by
Miss Gertrude Whitney and Miss Lula
Allen.
The program was divided into two
parts; the first consisting of boIo and
quartette numbers and the second of a
presentation of Sir Arthur Sullivan's
musical farce, "Cox and Box." which
was given by Messrs. McNitt, Morse
and Sutton. The program opened with
a quartette'numlier, "The Owl and the
Pussy Cat," which was very well ren
dered and and brought much applause
and laughter, including an encore.
Maynard Cook's solo. 'The Monk of
the Mountain." was artistically ren
dered and made a distinct hit. Mr.
Cook responded to the encore with the
"coon-song." "Malindy. " The Alina
roons then sang "The Little Peach"
with a pantomine interpretation of
"Tho Old Oaken Bucket" ns an encore.
Mr. McNitt's solo, "A May Morning"
and tho piece which he gave ns an en
core were both given verv smoothly
and elicited hearty applause. In sing
ing "Tho Night Wind Sleeps." The
Almaroons perhaps showed to tho best
advantage of any of their pieces Their
encore consisted of a surprisingly novel
rendition of "John Brown's B dy. ',
Mr. Sutton created the real sensation
of the evening by singing the catchy
but dirlicult little ballad, "Boiling
Down to liio. " This song, It will be
remembered, was given bv Lawrence
Ilea of Chicago at the Commencement
recital last spring. Mr. Rea's singing
was much commented on, and it is only
justice to Mr. Sutton to give him cred
it for pleasing his audience as well as
Mr. Ilea, who has sung in grand opera.
Responding to an encore Mr. Sutton
gave "Pretty, Pretty Creature,"
which was s"ng by Mr. Rea. The Al
inaroons concluded the first part of the
program by sinking two hnmorous
numbers, "Tne Quaker," and "Seein
Things at Night, ' and an encore,
"When First I Kissed Sweet Margar
et" In the farce, "Cox and Box," the
part of James John Cox, a journeyman
hatter, was taken by Mr. McNitt, that
of John James Box, a journeyman
printer, by Mr. Morse, and that of Ser
geant Bouncer, late of the Dampabire
Yeomanry, with military reminiscences
by Mr. Sutton. Bouncer's song, "Rat
aplan," the lullalby. "Hush-a-Bye,
Bacon," by Box, the song and dance
"My Master is Punctual" by Cox, the
trio "Who are You Sir" by Box, Cox,
and Bouncer and the gambling duet
"Sixes" by Cox and Box were perhaps
the most appreciated of the several
songs which were interspersed through
out the farce.
As a whole the evening's entertain
men was very typical of the work of a
college quartette, abounding in humor
yet with enough heavy pieces ade
quately to display . the powers of the
performers. The acting of the leader,
Mr. Morse, deserves special notice,
adding as it did so much to the inter
' pretation of the quartette nuraliers.
Laugh-evoking funny stunts are cer
tainly the long suit of the Alinaroons
nd their cleverness will Vie appreciated
wherever they 6ing.

The Tuscola County Advertiser of
last week said:
"The West Bay City Sagar Co.. will
shortly start up for a short run on
raw sugar imported from Germany.
The run is purely experimental and It
is believed that it will determine
whether the Michigan beet sugar fact
ories shall enter opon a new era of
work, with thousands of employed the
year around, or whether the present
conditions witn tnree montns in a
year shall remain.
The raw sugar can be obtained in
European countries with great ease
as the Euroiean plan of sugar .manu
facture is radically different than in
the United States.
One trouble with refining raw im
ported sugar there will 1x3 the high
tariff on raw sugar. A few changes
would be necessary in the local plant,
but they would not interfere with the
regular run for the local campaign.
if Bar City Co., Is successful, it is
expectd the Caro plant and others will
take up the question of importations
which would mean the continuous
employment of practically 500 sugar
workers in Caro. "

RAIN PREVENTED GAME
Although the Mt. Pleasant Normal,
School and Indian School Combination j
team cancelled last Saturday's game j
with Alma It was Coach Harper's in
tention to aprango a contest lietween
the first ami second teams. Tho heavy
rain on Saturday morning however,
rendered the clay surface of Davis
Field too sticky" for use, and the dis- j
corsolate fans were compelled to siend !
tho afternoon strolling or boating. J
As. far as may bo ascertained f roju
the behavior of the team in practice,
the men are rounding into excellent
form. True to predictions Hoben,
the, Adrian Star, is making good l)e
hind the bat, and Elders, the clever
1
Ann Arbor kid, is covering short in j
fine style. The pitching staff continues
to Improve with tho outdoor practiee. 1
The other memliers of the squad were
tested last year and hardly need com
menting on again this week, except to j
say that they make an excellent bunch 1
to select a championship team from.
The track men are all hard at work.
The discuss is flying better than 120
feet at present and Py ths time of the
June meet "big" McColluui should be'
able to send it still farther. B. Chapel ,
has come close to record time in his
first Atrial at the low hurdles, but a
good candidate for the high hurdles is ,
not yet forthcoming. A numtter of 1
men are after the 220 and 440 sprints '
and "Fleety" McComb is working!
away on the runs which he carried
off last spring at Albion. The college '
record for the shot was fractured last j
week and the men are going after the 1
hammer throw, though with small ,
success at - present It is safe to say j
that visiting alumni will tie surprised
and delighted with the changes on j
Davis Field In the way of Improve, j
ments. The cinder track is now com-t
pletely refitted, a jumping pit has
been made and the diamond altered)
somewhat. The watermaln which j
was lieing laid in the field Is .
done, as -are also the fifty feet of,
bleachers which furnish a splendid (
place to witness gHims. The bleachers
are moveable and may bn shifted to
give a letter view of the cinder track
when tl.o track meets am pulled off.
WASHING EMBROIDERIES
Make u good lather with soap and
warm water, addng one fourth of a
teaspoonful of powdered borax to each
quart of water. Place tho articles in
an ordinary glass fruit jar, then
nearly fill the jar with the lather.
Seal tigthly, shake the jar a little
and placo it in the bright sunilght
for tweny-four hours Of course, if
the weather is cloudy, the time
should tie allowed foi. Turn the jar
around occasionally so that the sun
may penetrate every part. When the
time is up pour off Jbe lather, press
the fabric gently then rinse it sevearal
times in clear, soft water. Return it
to the jar with more clear water, set It
again in the sun, changing the water
daily, until the material is white. I
recently renovated a bit of tine old
hand embroidery, which had become as
yellow as saffron, by this method, and
it was tteautiful. Woman's Home

Springs Hotel Tuesday Even

LARGE AUDIENCE ATTENDS
Miss Edna Lyman Lectures on Child
ren's Literature and
Story Telling.
Miss Edna Lyman gave her lecture
last evening in the gymnasium of the
Alma Springs Hotel to a largo'ani ap
preciative audience, aliout 180 tickets
lielng sold Her lectures on children's
literature and story telling were very
interesting and educational. The sub
jcts given were such as would interest
all who havo to do with child life in
the home, Sunday school, day school
orlibrary.
The field covered by the stories was
two-fold: story telling for children, and
storty telling for grown people. The
last story illustrated by Miss Lyman
was a story of dancing fairies with
Miss Saide Messinger as accompanist
on the piano and proved to be the
special feature of the evening's enter
tainment. Should Miss Lyman ever
again appear before the people of Al
ma, she would receive a hearty wel
come. The two solos given during the even
ing, tho first one by Miss Caldwell of
the college, entitled "Spring Time"
and the second by Miss Anna Monti
gel, were both rendered in fine style re
ceiving much applause.
RESOLUTIONS
The follewing resolution was ad
opted at Reed City convention last
week.
The republicans of the Eleventh
congressional district through their
delegates in convention assembled re
new tLeir faith in and allegiance to
the principles of present-day progres
sive republicanism.
Wo heartily endorse the stand of Pres
ident Theodore Roosevelt on the great
problems of national life, and we urge
that the issues so admirably put into
form by hi m be carried forward to
their logical conclusion in the interest
of just and right for tho groat body
of our countrymen regardless of wealth
or social condition. Believing that Win.
Taft is the greatest exponent of these
principles and that his public career
has shown him to be a man of highest
administrative ability and that he
posssses all the elements of power that
make a strong and ideal executive,
we therefore endorse his candidacy
and recommend that our delegates
elected here use every reasonable en
