SPURIOUS COIN BEING ' CIRCU
LATED. CONDUCTOR VAUGHN
OF SOUTH SHORE POINTS
(.'inductor Dan Vaughan, of the
South Shore road, who is mayor of the
city of Marquette, displayed a counter
feit Canadian silver" quarter this
morning, which he recently received
jilunj? with other coins In payment of
Tho counterfeit quarter Is the exact
counterfeit of the genuine Canadian
quarter, with the exception that on the
reverse Hide from the head of King
i:d ward tho counterfeit coin has tho
crown sign in its normal or proper po
sition as If resting on tho head, while
the genuine coin in the same isl
lion the crown Is shown upside down.
Conductor Vaughan states that he
believes that 50-ecnt and 23-cent Ca
nadian spurious coins ure being cir
culated broadcast throughout the up
j r peninsula. He states that It Is
his belief that the coins are being
inoli'rd and coined In Cunada, and are
being smuggled over the border Into
this country and placed in circulation
Jure instead of In Canada.
Conductor Vaughan has seen quite
a number of these spurious coins late
ly. ' The counterfeit coin ha.T.a lighter
ring than the genuine article, but this
Is not enough to test the genuineness
of the coin. The sure test Is the posi
tion of the small crown on tho reverse
side. Evidently the counterfeiters In
making their dies overlooked this small
but every Important feature, and thus
left a loophole for detection.

WHAT IS THE
USE OF SAVING T
In the first place It Is n. duty wc owo to ourselves.
We cannot always be producers; old ape Is sure to
come; ulckness, accident or misfortune may come at
nny time and cut oiT, temporarily or permanently, our
productive powers, therefore we should provide for
the future rainy day or for old age by saving during
tho days of our greatest productive power.
Fathers may thus provide for wives and families,
or for tho future education of their children. Chil
dren should fortn tho habit of saving, thus establish
ing. a correct business habit and laying a foundation
for 'futuro success in business or a profession.
Tho obligation of saving U nn ever present one,
which cannot bo disregarded without resulting mis
fortune. First National Bank
will furnish all the necessary conveniences.

was broken, Into and packages nnd
boxes rilled of their contents. Mar

It is understood that the officers

It Is a difficult matter us yet to as
certain Just what articles were stolen,
until an Inventory of the goods re

Entrance was effected through
breaking the soul jf the car. The
rest was easy. As far as can be
gleaned, no suspicious persons were
seen loitering around the railroad
yards last night. However the officers
will make exhaustive Inquiries, with a
view to securing evidence that will
land the parties behind the bars.

While the play Itself, which was
presented here for the first time, gave
evidence of wonderful possibilities,
there was a hint of tho amateur In tho
manner of producing It and tho effect
was not what It should have been. In

IMPORTANT MEETING OF THE
COUNCIL TOMORROW EVENING
At the regular monthly meeting of
the Laurium vlllatce council tomorrow
evening, It Is likely thut the petition,
recently circulated by the members of
the civic Improvement committee, and
extensively signed by residents of
Laurium that the open .sewers contin
gent to and in the village bo closed,
will be presented for formal action.
The health committee of the village
ha already- held an Informal meeting
to discuss thl question, and as a result
acilon Is being taken by the village
officials to abate the nuisance com
plained of. Open sewers exist In the
village, nnd It is claimed that these
have been responlhlo for some of the
diphtheria, scarlet fever, and other di
seases that have broken out In the dis
trict during the past few weeks. The
open sewer at the corner of First and
Ahmeek streets in particular is said
to be a great menace to the public
health. The officials are giving' this
sewer attention and a much needel
improvement may bo expected.
The council will also likely deal with
the bill-board ordinance at tomorrow
night's meeting. This ordinance call
for the fi.e of bill-boards within the
village borders to be reduced to six feet
In height instead of ten feet as now.
It is claimed by the theatrical men
that if the ordinance Is put Into effect
It will be unconstitutional.
CONTRACT TO LAURIUM MAN.
Frank Myers Will Build Stable for
County of Keweenaw.
The board of supervisors of Ke
weenaw county held a special meet
ing on Wednesday and looked over the
bids for the construction of a barn for
the county, says the Keweenaw Miner.
There were three bidders, they being
F. J. Thlelman, Frank Rleswanger and
Frank Mtyers. Mr. .Myers was the low
est bidder, at $1,850.00 and there was
less than $70.00 (between tho highest
and lowest bid.
Tho old barn and carriage shed will
bo removed and the new structure will
go up the same site as the old one.
This Is an Improvement that has been
badly needed for some time.
The board empowered County Clerk
Kuiser to enter Into a contract with the
Michigan Telephone company for the
stringing of a new telephone line for
the use of the county. This Is some
thing there has been a crying need for,
for lo, these many years, as there Is
often need of a private line between
tho county oflicers and offices of the
attorneys of this ami the adjoining
county. At present this Is an Impos
sibility,, owing,, to .the fact that . there
are no lofs than nine telephones on
the line -which connects with the court
house. When the new lino has been
strung, there will be not more than
two telephones on the lines, one at the
court house nnd one nt the residence
of County Clerk Kaiser.
PICTURES DRAW CROWD.
Film of Jeffriea-Johnton Fight To Be
Ticture firms of the Jeffries-Johnson
fight at Reno, Nevada. July 4th
will be shown, at tho Palestra this
Concerning the exhibition of these
pictures at Marquette last Friday, the
Marquette Mining Journal says:
"It would appear from tho pictures
that the charge that Jeffries "laid
down" In tho latter part of the fight
Is without foundation. From. the first
round to tho finish the pictures show
that Johnson was quicker on his feet,
tat he used the better ring generalship,
and after tho first few rounds It Is
evident that Johnson Is destined to
win, barring a chance blow from Jeff
ries. Nevertheless, Jeffries fought
gamely throughout nnd In tho four
teenth round forced the fighting un
til his leg muscles gave out. In the
fifteenth and final round, he fll an
ensy prey to Johnson's terrific face
blows. Johnson's superior ring gen
eralship Is shown by his success In
ending each roumnd at or near his own
"Among the most enjoyable of the
pictures nre those showing the city
of Reno, the arrival of the crowds,
close hand views of the principal
buildings nnd streets, all oT which are
thronged with people. There nre nu
merous scenes at Jeffries' training
quarters, in which the boiler maker is
shown sparring with his trainers, and
also characteristic pictures of the ma
ny prominent pugilists at the Jeffries
camp. Numerous views of the Im
mense crowd nt the ring side and the
events Immediately preceding the big
battle were also very Interesting. All
of the pictures were carefully explain
ed by a lecturer, who accompanies the
fight pictures from city to city.
