Tlie site of Hancock vas platted in 1S.VI by Samuel W. Hill, then the agent of the Qjiinoy Mining eoiiipany, so that the actual fiftieth i imiveisary was In 1 H01. The site was 55. north of IfcuiKo 31 west. However, liancoek township was formed In 1S1 and the first election was held in April of that year at Haer Jims. store, and fur this reason, Hancock people believe that tills is the proper year for the ob servance of the llfthth anniversary. The tirt-t villaco election was held In March 10. 1S03, when Harvey F. Clarke was elected president, there be ing in:', votes cast at the election. Han ( o, u became an Incorporated village in is?."., and a city of the fourth class in l!'i2. . Taft, May Be Present. . A fiiudent of the .Michigan College of Mines was present at the meeting last evening and mentioned the fact that President Taft had been invited to be present at the celebration of the fwonty-liflh anniversary of the min ing school in August, and it was sug gested that It might be a good Idea to have the seml-centcnnlal celebra tion here during that week, so that i resident TuTt might also grace the Hancock festivities with his presence, should he find it convenient to come to the copper country at that time. The revival meetings that have boon oiiiductcd at the Hancock M. K. church for the past three weeks were tf-nudud-o.l last evening. Hov. V. 11 Marvin, the pastor, being In charge. lie v. Reuben Crosby, who has been assisting Mr. -Marvin, left on Wednesday evening to return to his home In Detroit. Cured by Lydia C Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Creston, Iowa.

The improvements that are being made at the armory in (iormanla hall are rapidly approaching completion and the tinting und painting of tho walls and woodwork will shortly be started.

This prison is getting altogether too genteel to suit inc." When a young lad of goml parentage and of sound training and education begins to chafe under the restraint of pareutnl discipline it Is time for the parents to exercise tin wisdom pot only from the lessons taught in the great school of the wide, wide world. J Theories and principles expounded ever so convincingly vill not keep the growing boy ut home after 7 o'clock in tho eveulng when the.; is n chance to escape Into the streets to meet the "hunch," the alluring, versatile bunch whose plans so often Include tlm anni hilation of tho Sioux warriors of the Dakota plains who have laid down the tomahawk to take up the agency clay pipe and store clothes. That is to say. theories and princi ples merely will not sutlice to restrain the Impulsive, imaginative, action craving youths unless the parent com bines with them enough knowledge of the world lo convince the half formed, j half trained youthful mind that tho i mentor has the, best Interests of the) lad in mind, that he lias been through j it ull himself apd knows full well the J joys and disappointments, the fears , and hopes of early days.1 And It is the habitually stern, optl- ! mlstie, unyielding and academic? par- ! ent who convinces the youtuc lad that ! he knows nothing of the fascinating ! temptations of boyhood. The spirit of compromise is allowed to perish by i such a parent; the spirit of rebellion grows in tho son's heart; a spirit uour- ' ished on the decay of the respect and i love thrust aside by tho father who j would not understand. j A certain lad of sixteen years found , life in his New England homo far ! more circumscribed than was that of j his companions of the same age and j same comfortable position. lie was not allowVd to go swimming in the ; lake because his young friend Tommy j Clark had narrow ly escaped drow niug. . The fact that Tommy Clark could not ! Bwlm nnd was "taking a dare" on that , memorable occasion when he verged HAVE A CIOAH. oa death near the county line road bridge and the fact that the lad we are considering could swim very well made, no difference to the father as well us to the mother. The son must keep away from tho water. That was final. Tho further fact that this boy as pired to be a mining engineer made no difference to this father or to this mother. It had already boon docid'd for lilm that I must study fe-r the ministry. Three years passed. The lad was In college1. The study of theology d!d not suit his temperament or h! em pires, lie wanted, above all things, to go out Into the world of action, to brittle with the might of the stroti:: man ho was hoeomlng against big, tangible odds; out. In the open air un der the opcu heaji cusj dow n lu the 1 t. ,$v$$4 11 r aa bowels of the earth or wherever there were mines to be dug ami equipped and operated.

The answer came. The same night there were u vacant room and a vacant bod In the dormitory. Next morning came u search. Under a table was found a (Til in tied note that the tours of tho lad had blurred as he read. The letter was taken to tho president of the col lege. When this gray haired gentle man adjusted his spectacles he pressed the paper flat on his desk ami rend: "If you do not continue your course in theology I will ceas'j to pay your hills ut college. Should von discon tinue them you must, return iioiiie-. where 1 will secure you a position as bookkeeper nt your uncle's store." Signed to this eloquent, brief ephtio was tho name of tho young man's fa ther. Several years have passed since that crumpled letter was picked up from the floor of the college- student's room. Several years have passed since an aged couple, soon to eke out their meed of existence in a small country town, have heard news from the son who would not become n minister. Several years have passed since a young college student appeared penni less nnd discouraged in u middle w est ern city and vainly walked the streets for days, subsisting as best he might, in search of any kind of work that strong hands and arms could perform. So there should bo tempered judg ment shown, say I, in dwelling on tho present fate of Jimmy Valentine when it is considered that he was the ambitious lad who left the crumpled note lying on the floor In his bedroom and set out to fight the world single handed.
