Cooper, Fred 15. Trat li en, William F. Hartman, Paul 1. Roehm. Committee on business and perma nent organization J. F. Hambitzer, Capt. William Pollard. Capt. Jolin Jolly. Tellers Albert Graunstadt and Charles Xoetzel. These committees were later made permanent. During the time the com mittee on credentials were examining the papers of the delegates, the con vention grew restless and showed their Impatience by clapping their hands. After this business had been attended to Robert H. Shields nominated Wil liam lUth for county commissioner of schools, stating that he had given sat isfaction t both teachers and school boards. Mr. lUith was made a candi date by unanimous consent. The following delegates were named to the Saginaw convention: James MacNaughton, W. F. Janu s. J. .'. Cox, A. D. Edwards, Anthony Lucas, W. R.

Reflectors throw the light from many electric lamps sixteen feet above the rails to the sides of the tunnel, where it is again reflected by burnished tin, giving a soft and agree able light.

Johnson of Calumet visited Houghton today and made prelimin ary arrangements for tho bringing here of his exhibit of oil nnintlncs. which he will exhibit in a short time. The work is all his own and has been done during his spare time. It con sists exclusively of sacred paintings. Mr. Johnson is iwell known in Calu met, having painted a series of sacred paintings for the Swedish M. R church of that place. The history of his artistic career, if it could be so termed, is very unique. He has been a miner all his life, and knew noth ing of painting or that he had talent In that direction until one of his chil dren brought home a school painting rxx of water colors. Out of curiosity he tried to make a likeness of a cer tain object and was so successful that both be and his friendj were surprised at the result. He was so delighted with the idea of painting that that he spent all his srwire time with the water colors, later turning to oil painting which he followed up. Mr. Johnson also will exhibit his work in Calumet and Hancock. Flight of Sea Eagle. When one observes a sea eagle perched upon a lofty cliff, It may be reaiarked that In order to quit its eyrie it waits until a gust of wind arises, then It lets Itself fall forward with extended wings, glvts a beat or two as It turns, brings itself to face the wind, and thus mounts without a wing-beat hundreds of yards high. What is the secret of this feat? In the Walk of Life. Our life is a web woven by the hand of God, the thread reaching from our birth unto our death. The woof is trouble, but still runs with it a weft of interwoven comfort. Adams. The central plazas of several entire streets In Valparlso, Chile, are being raised about Xorty inches.

Lansing, Mich., Feb. 2S. Hecause of the necessity of cutting down spec ial appropriations until the state Is once more on its feet financially many Af tho institutions which are really sadly In need of additional buildings and -other improvements will have to wait for two years. The biggest special appropriation asked and which will not be allowed is that of Senator John Leldlein of Saginaw for highway purposes. His bill or bills, which provide a whole new system of highway construction, calls for a special appropriation of $1,700,000 for good roads. This big ap propriation will be cut off in its en tirety. The next biggest one is that of the University of Michigan for a total of $850,000. Most of this will be refused. The Soldiers' Home board asks for $201,250 for current expenses and $25, 000 for a new dormitory and $500 for a Imkery. The committee on Soldiers' homo has already reported on this matter and cuts the current expenses to a flat $200,000. cuts off the dormitory entirely and allows $500 for the bakery. Same Treatment to All. The Ypsllantl norma school which asks $150,000 for new buildings will have to struggle nlong without it this year and Alpena which asks an ap propriation for a normal school will be left 'n air for this session of the leg islature at least. Senator Collins of Day county is working hard for an appropriation for the establishing of a school for crippled children and Hay City has tendered the site to the state. Nobody denies but that such an Institution would be worth while, but with the fiances of the state in its present con dition It Is extremely doubtful if nny new institutions will be authorized this year. "Michigan cannot afford this year to be even liberal In its special ap i.om.ji.lor s," says Auditor General Fuller. "We have been living under a false economy for the last ten years. This Idea of having a million dollars deficit every year is wrong in prin ciple and wrong in practice. The leg lisature this year should be reasonably liberal In its appropriations for the current expenses and the institutions should be forced to live within what Is allowed them. There Is no sense In being stingy in the matter of current expenses and thea having a lot of def icits to make up, lut when it comes to big special appropriations, we must hold down to the ibonc this year.
