DIAHtrou Fire at routine. The most disastrous fire which has ever visited Pontiac occurred shortly after 9 o'clock on the evening of the 10th in the factory of the Pontiac spring and wagon works. The fire started in the engine room and was discovered by the watchman while on his rounds. The local fire department responded promptly to an alarm, but were entirely unable to cope with a fire of such magnitude. The building which was valued at $20,000 and the stock at between $30,000 and $40,000 was entirely destroj-ed. The insur ance was less than $10,000. The works was one of the busiest of the Pontiac factories and its loss is a blow to the city as well as the owners, and 75 men are thrown out of employment. 4 Had to Close Its Doors. The doors of the Citizens' National bank of Niles, were closed on the 8th by National Rank Examiner Joseph V. Selden, who was appointed tempo rary receiver of the bank by the comp troller of the currency. The cauc of the failure of the bank is poor loans which have been made, to meet which the comptroller levied an assessment upon the capital stock of the bank. The stockholders failed to meet this assessment, and the receiver was ap pointed in consequence. The last statement of the Citizens' National bank showed loans and discounts amounting to $169,509; surplus, $10,000; capital, $50,000. An effort will be made to reopen shortly. - Took Five Ilullets to Kill Him.

The weekly crop bulletin says that the weather conditions for the past week have been very favorable for crop growth and harvest work. Hay ing has continued with very little in terruption and u large part of the hay crop is now secured in stack and barn; the yield from old meadows has been light, but from new ones a moderately heavy cut has been secured. Wheat and rye harvest has begun in the ex treme southern part of the state. Wheat has ripened very fast and still continues to show considerable rust and many fields are full of chess. Rye is a moderate good crop. Corn has made splendid advancement; the fields are clean and the crop looks stroug and healthy. Showers have improved the condition of oats, but were insuf ficient. Early potatoes are ripening and are being quite generally dug in the southern counties. Late potatoes are about ail planted and are coming up nicely. In southern counties pas tures are brown and need rain badly. Beans and sugar beets are being cultl rated and are making good progress. Cyclone In Tuscola County. A cyclone swept over Tuscola county three miles northeast of Caro on the afternoon of the 4th. The barn on the farm of W. W. Leonard was demol ished and the farm house badly wrecked.

Halderman, formerly of (icnesse county, have been con victed and sentenced to be hanged at Phoeniz, Ariz., for the murder of a deputy sheriff. The large F. & P.

The liquor dealers of Ypsilanti ran their places wide open on the Fourth and did a land office business, but the fines which follow will doubtless cut into their profits largely.

Fruit growers at Lawton who have been swindled year after j'ear out of the profits of their shipments to Chi cago commission men have turned, like the worm in the adage, and will attend to the sale of their fruit them selves. Thej' have formed an associa tion, with $10,000 capital, for the pur pose, and will give commission men the goby hereafter. Most persons when mowing a lawn aim to cut the grass as close to the ground as possible. This is a mistake. The grass should be cut rather high, so as to leave enough leaf service to enable it to grow again. When crop ped often the grass is consequently compelled to make greater effort and the shorter the grass and more diffi culty in its way.

The su preme court says that the legislature exceeded its authority in creating the street railway commission, and that the constitution prohibits the state from issuing bonds for internal im provements, and the commonwealth therefore connot delegate to cities power that it does not itself possess. While out hunting last March Henry Reebe, of near Crawford, Isabella county, ran a s'lver gray fox into a hollow log and shot her. When he split the log open he found nine young silver irrav foxes, one of which had been killed when he shot the mother.

The crossing has long been considered a dangerous one, the view of in-coming trains being obscured by a high fence around the fair grounds. The train was running at a high speed. Liberal Predict Conservatives' FulL The recent double liberal victory at the Oldham election in England is taken in conjunction with other recent bye-elections and votes in the house of commons as being most humiliating to the ministry and there are signs in many directions that the liberal union ists are asking themselves why they are sitting on the tory benches and supporting measures exemplifying the old and discredited devices of conser vatism. The liberals are exulting and even go to the extent of predicting an early dissolution. It is rumored that the recent cabinet meeting was stormy and that many differences developed, but so long as the ministry can adjust its differences, it is probable that a dissolution will not occur before the autumn of 1'joo.

American Scored a Success The American delegates at The Hague scored a great success on the th in obtaining from the peace con ference a unanimous vote in favor of having the question of private prop erty at sea in time of war dealt with at a special conference to be summoned hereafter.

Convention not as Largely Attended at was Kipected. The Christian Endeavor delegates to the national convention at Detroit commenced arriving on the 4th, but the bulk of the 12,000 did not reach the city until late on the 5th. The re ception committee were on hand at the depots and wharfs to meet all incom ing trains and boats. The system used by the committee in handling the large delegation is an excellent one, and done away with much of the con fusion usually attendant upon the car ing for such a vast crowd. A brief song service opened the big meeting on the evening of the 5th. It was a sort of an informal service, and the two or three songs were led by Rev. W. II. Clark, who has trained the big choir for the convention. After the last of the songs an expectant hush settled over the throng of people, and President F. E. Clark ascended the platform and stretched out his hands for silence. In a moment his voice sounded clear and distinct, even to the remotest edges of the large tent: "I want you to give a cheer," he cried, as he held up a little dark wood gavel, "a cheer for the gavel with which this, the 18th annual convention of our so ciety is now called to order. It was made for us by the members of the Christian Endeavor society in Jackson prison. I want to tell you, too, that a member of that society never went out of Jackson prison who went back again. Now I want you to cheer for our comrades who are in prison." The first cheer was not satisfactory to Mr. Clark and he called for a second, which was responded to io an able manner, after which Rev. J. G. Rutler of the Luther Memorial church of Washington, I). C, led the devotional exercises. C. E. Note.

Fully 4,000 young women and men of the C. E. society met at Relle Isle on the afternoon of the 8th to attend the peace jubilee. Rain in the early part of the afternoon kept many from attending, but those who did attend felt fully repaid for their trouble. The army canteen was denounced in a nowerful address bv Mr. Wilson, of Rochester, N. Y., at Tent Williston, on the 10th. He holds that the can teen "is throwing the dews of hell down the throats of the boys in blue." The Rev. C. M. Shelden, who was as signed to one of the pulpits in the out skirts of the citv on the 9th, carried out his threat that he would not pat ronizc a street car on the Sabbath, and walked the entire distance.

E. convention caused some to sug irest that it should have been called the "Rainmaker Convention." The trustees of the Union Society of Christian Endeavor passed resolutions expressing their views on Sunday clos ing. At the peace jubilee, held on Relle Isle, a peace memorial to congress, en dorsed by the C. E. societies, was read.
