On Tuesday of last week at the family
home in Ionia, occurred the death of Mrs.

Orleans township whose efforts had been
instrumental in bringing that township
out of an almost impenetrable forest into
the beautiful farming community which
exists in that locality today.
Charlotte Holcomb was born in Sheldon,
Wyoming county, N. Y, December 10,
1837, and moved with her parents to Or
leans about 1845, having been a resident
of Ionia county over 60 years. She was
married to Jacob King October 21, 1 855,
and thVee children were born to this union,
Mrs. E. M. Chappie of Belding, who died
in 1884, Nate G. of Lakeview And Mrs
Grant Steele of Breckenridge. The
funeral was held at Ionia Saturday, Rev.
Cogshall of the M. E. church officiating.
Mrs. King was a lifefong member of the
Methodist church and had always been a
a faithful worker in the cause of the

SKILL MORE THAN STRENGTH.
Latter Is of L tl i Avail In Properly
Strength has nothing to do with
hands, or rather, it is a distinct draw
back to their acquirement. The werk
ling must use other means to attain
his ends; the string man disdains the
delicate effects which make for every
thing of the best In horsemanship. A
little SO jiound boy will control per
fectly a rattle-brained race horse that
no man could hold by main strength;
a slight woman will guide four horses
as few men can It Is the combination
of the attributes named that enables
them to do If.
Appropriate bitting has much to do
with success, but the novico is apt to
proceed to the extremes of severity
In his desire to ge,t that delicacy of
touch and promptness of response
which he thinks should follow sharp
restraint. The reverse of this should
always be the rule, and the horse
should be constantly tried with light
er bitting effects untjl the least pos
slble restraint Is employed. Hands
and mouths vary from day to day. ac

will mean one-fourth off to all who buy now. Think what a sav
