The buttle of ballots Monday was it very quiet one and the little punvs of paper, which execute the freeman's will fell silently in thu boxes at the several polling places: The total vote polled wan Im4; forty-three more than were cast one year ago. llegistra- tions in the lirst ward wero t0 new names and .'!!) were stricken from the list. In the second ward ('l new ones were registered and IK) were stricken on". In the third ward SO registered and 11(5 were stricken olT. The con test was mainly on the head of the ticket and to that point was democrat ic elTort directed. The result shows how well it was directed and it also re veals a remarkable weakening in the backliono of a whole lot of republicans, who were led into the dangerous situ ation of splitting their ticket. Lewis 11. Stone the lone democratic supervisor elect, is a stayer. His per sistence in running for office has fin ally been rewarded. Like the demo cratic party, which suffered defeat con tinually for twenty-five or thirty years but bobtwd up serenely every cam paign, Lew has been in line and ac cepted nominations which were thrust upon him only to bo wrecked on the hoals of the rough and rocky ride through the ballot box. One can not help, .admiring his tick-to- It-lveness. His conduct of the ottice may be as much of a surprise to his constituency as was his election. From present indications it will cer tainly require one of Hdison's most powerful X rays to discover tin; re publican who can lie elected mayor of this city.

"Hew wonderful is death ! Death and bis brother, Sleep." Horace Luscombo was lorn Novem ber 25th, 1802, at old Taunton, Mass., and departed this life Maren. 31st, 1890, at the home of his youngest son, F. R. Luscombo. He grew up like the gbint oak that spreads forth its strong branches and defies the fierceness of tho cale. Strong and vigorous in constitution, magnifiernt in physical strength, full of the vim and vigor of life, he followed the uneven pathway among flowers ind thorns through all Its varied meanderings, noble, manly and courage ous, until he reached tho shore of the dark river where, with a countenance of tranquil submission he laid down his burden and passed calmly and serenely to the farther shore. When ho was young his father moved to Buckland, then to Ashlield, and af terwards to Hawley in Franklin Co.. Mass. Here he was united in marriage to Fliza Helding of Ashlield. the 29th day of May, 1830. Eleven children were born to them, of whom seven are, now living five sons and two daugh ters. In April 1842 they set out on their tedious journey to Michigan. All their worldly possessions were loaded in one w agon, drawn only by a pair of oxen. After many discouragements and dis asters they at last arrived in Otisco, with their six small children. They settled In the wilderness, built them a hut of logs, and went to work. Hones ty and generosity, courage and endui- nice, imbeded deep in the sublime principles of tho (Jolden rule, wero the orner stones of his existence, and upon that foundation he built the temple of his life's work. For ninety three years he was spared to this world, and then he left not a wilderness but a garden. His wife passed peacefully away Juiy HUh, 18S.', and for thirteen years ho mourned her loss, and treaded the un certain pathway of life alone. But now his voice is forever stilled in the trauquil slumber of everlasting rest. and yet ho lives. His thoughts and words and deeds will never die. To us he has bequeathed the greatest legacy that man can bestow the example of a noble life. But he lives again, for those who witnessed the peaceful sleep that fell upon him and gently wooed him to rest, will never doubt that death to him was but the opening of the golden gates of everlasting joy. The funeral services were conducted by Revs. (Jolden and McConnell at the old homestead, Friday at 10 o'clock. Tho text was from Rsalm 48:14. Tho music furnished by the Otisco choir was very appropriate. The casket was strewn with beautiful floral tributes and many relatives and friends accom panied his remains to their last rest- Inir place. Your Itojr Wont I.lve a Month. So Mr. Cllman Brown, of 31 Mill st.. South Gardner, Mass., was told by the doctors, ins son had lung trouble. following typhoid malaria, and ho spent threo hundred and seventy-five dollars with doctors, who finally gave him up, saying: "Your boy wont live a month." He tried Dr. King's New Discovery and a few ImjUIcs restored him to health and enabled him to go to worK a erfectly well man. He says he owes his present good health to u'so ot Dr. King's New Discovery, and know It to bo the )estin tho world for lung trouble.

The Methodist and Presbyterian churches were used Wednesday night in opening the convention, each of which wero beautifully decorated, l'rtBident of tho loeal union C. D. Ran som In his welcome address said: This convention means a great deal to the statu of Michigan. It means that the christian zeal and earnest ness of 00,000 young ieople will bo in tensified. It means that tho concen trated effort of these consecrated men and women will send out an influence, the power of which shall be felt In moulding tho character of many young people all over the state. No one knows how many young lives will le led to think better thoughts, to sjKsak kinder words and bo prompted to nob ler deeds on account of what may be said or done at this convention; If this is so, the hard work and anxious months of preparation for It should be thought of only as a great pleasure and a great privilege. It Is such scenes as this that mark the onward growth and progress of all that is good and great, and Ionia is proud to-night that she is tho "Convention City" of '90. The address of welcome was respond ed to by Rev. O. 1 Coler of Ann Ar bor. The program as printed was carried out to tho letter and much effective work was crowded into tho three days session, gaeat interest centered in the annual address of President Strong and also tho address of Dr. Clark, founder of tho movement and National President of tho Unions. Over flow meetings, were held in all the churches so great was the attendance. Tb :, are nearly 70,000 C. K.. . In Michigan . In answer to the question "What is Cod's design for the Chris tian Endeavor movement" Dr. Clark said: "There are many answers that might bo given, all of which would be true but all of which would bo partial. Is it Cod's design through the Chris tian Endeavor to make better citizens, to inspire respect for tenierance and Sabbath keeping and righteousness of all kinds? Yes, undoubtedly, em phatically yes. The following officers were unani mously elected by tho convention: President, W. II. Strong of Detroit; vice president Rev. J. M. Fulton of Grand Rapids; secretary, Miss Flora B. Roberts of Lapeer; treasurer, II. O. Fanning of Grand Rapids, junior su perlntendent, Miss Mable Bates of Traverse City; missionary superinten dent, B. R.
