flXf.DING MICHIGAN. Present happiness is far better than posthumous fame. Suspicion and opposite interest wlU break any kind of friendship. The milk of human kindness coitii ues to be circulated at the good old rate. Great excellence is envied In dfe, tut honored and monumenteo in death. Regrets and remorse in old ag are the wicked children of youthful indis cretion. Connecticut comes " along wittt f story of a hen with a wooden leg Another nature faker.

Since the days of Adam, says the Bal timore American, the apple tree seems to have a fascination for men of the experimental frame of mind. A West Virginia man had his hopes of happiness blasted by the ghost of the former husband of the lady he was to marry appearing to her and warn ing her against another, matrimonial venture Just before the knot was tied. This "was, Indeed, a mean-spirited in terference. A statue of Zola is to be erected in Paris directly opposite the Palace of Justice. And thu3 is appropriate honor done to the memory of the man who has made the greatest fight for Justice of modern times, and won the battle almost single-handed in face of the most tremendous odds. The American manager of an Eng lish railroad is trying to break his conductors or guards of the habit of dropping their "h's" and to say "Hampstead" and "Hlgate," instead of "Ampstead" and "Ighgaie."

A Kansas man is convinced that ad vertising pays. Recently he lost a $J bill and advertised In one of his town papers. Within three hours thereaf ter he had the bill returned to him b a stranger who had found it. The next day, says the Ohio Sun, he found the missing bill in his vest pocket and now declares that advertising pays just exactly 100 per cent. The 1,002 girls who arrived on an Immigrant ship the other day in search of American husbands are des cribed as "fascinating."

A peculiar run of InoMan "names is given by the Indian School Journal in the case of a woman whose name was Mollle Panther. She first married Mr. Coon, and next a gentleman named Fox, and after his demise wedded Mr. Mule. When Mule died she "became Mrs. Wolf, then Mrs. Tiger, and wound up the list by marrying Mr. Hogg. Some enterprising man ought to get hold of her and start a menagerie The Chinese system of inviting the moon to partake of "the moon day feast," seems to fill all the require ments of sentiment without danger of acceptance. The moon does not even send regrets. It serves all the purpos es of leaving calling cards or spending announcement cards as practiced by our own social circles, and also adds a pleasing variety to the feast, at least equal to pink shades for the can dies. The proposition to remove the re stored warship Constitution from Bos ton to Annapolis; for use as the flagshij of the commander of the naval acad cray, has been warmly opposed in Bos ton, where the ship was built and where It has been anchored for man) years. Much can be said In favor ol keeping the historic vessels of the , navy at widely separated points, In stead of collecting them all at one sta tlon. They are, remarks the Youth's Companion, object lessons in patrio tism which citizens in all section should have an opportunity to study. LATEST MS OF SOME PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION. AND-PROSPECTS. SOLDIERS' HOME MATTER Mr. Llllie, of Kent, Makes a Proposal That Wakes Up the Delegates to the Work Before Them. The Proposition. The most discussed proposal in the constitutional convention is the amendment plan of Delegate Colon C. Llllie, of Kent, not merely because of the method of amendment which it contains, but because it can be seen to contain solution of so many of the big problems which are crowding for ward for recognition. Initiative-referendum, suffrage, prohibition, govern ment ownership; are all held, accord ing to thoughtful members of the con vention, within the compass of the Lll lie proposal for amending the revised constitution. It is hereby proposal: Sec. 1. That the following sections be adopted as sections in the revised constitution: Sec. 1. Amendments to this consti tution may be made on petition of 23 per cent of the qualified voters of the state to the secretary of state, who shall submit the proposed amendment to the people for their ratification at the next general election, and when so submitted if the proposed amend ment receives a majority of all the votes cast at that election, It shall become a part and parcel of this con stitution. (This section Is new). Sec. 2. The legislature, two-thirds of bJth houses concurring, may pro pose amendments and submit them to the people for ratification at a gen eral election, and such proposal shall become part and parcel of the consti tution, if they receive a majority of all the votes cast at such election. (This is in the present constitution). The present expectation of the con vention is that the Llllie proposal can pass. Strong direct legislationlsts say: "We shall get that if no more." while ultra-conservatives say: "This is the only proposition that looks as If there might be danger of its passage." The referendum plan Is more fa vored than the Initiative. Perhaps three-fourths of the proposals submit ted on local government questions contain some referendum provision, and no man has appeared very viol ently opposed to local referendum principles. The Initiative has not ap peared by itself in local proposals, though localities are Included in the state wide bills. Strange to note, the recall, which is usually mentioned in connection with rrrftlatlfe-referendum plans, has not yet been presented In any propos al. The sum of present opinion seems to be that there will be a measure of referendum conceded in local matters (this apart from general "home rule" provisions), and there will be an ini tiative in constitutional amendments, unless the tide turns. Stir Up at Soldiers' Home. It develops that when Gov. Warner left Grand Rapids suddenly la?t week, alter having a conference with the board of trustees of the Michigan Sol diers' home, he dropped a few tart re marks about the "posthumous" fund, concerning which he made the trip to Urand Rapids. He told the mem bers of the board that he wished the Inmates of the home to be given their full pensions, and that he favored dropping at once the scheme of ap propriating all of the Denslon monev exceeding $12 a month. The governor i3 an ex-offlclo mem ber of the board, and has no vote, but the board understood perfectly from the tone in which the governor made his requests, the precipitation of his retirement from the scene and his re fusal to discuss the matter further, that if the soldiers are not allowed to keep their pension money, some resig nations from the! soldiers' home board will be asked for. The Deerslayers. It is with fear and misgiving by relatives of hunters that the opening of the deer season is observed In northern Michigan, and there are thousands of hunters in the woods. The record of past seasons indi cates that along with from ten to fif teen thousand deer, a number of hunt ers will be slain. The law which makes the act of kiling a fellow hunt er manslaughter has been tried and found' wanting. The recent killing of John C. Kruse. a prominent mining man. near Iron Mountain, was a typical fatality. He was slain by a companion who started with him on the trail of three bears. In this case . the marksman was an expert hunter. Henry Allman, of Charlotte, who pleaded guilty to burning the barn of a neighbor, was sent to Ionia for two years. Under the new primary act only the thirteenth, fourteenth, eighteenth and twentieth senatorial districts will have primaries next year, unless the question is resubmitted upon the pe tition of enrolled voters. Irene, who is suing Joseph Farrel for a divorce in Adrian, was refused the decree by Judge Chester because he had granted the woman another one, and from Joseph's brother, this year.

SIM FRANCISCO HAS BUBO! PLAGUE MORE THAN HALF OF THE PA TIENTS DIED SEATTLE ALSO HAS SEVERAL CASES. DISEASE IS SPREADING. Plague Twice Wrought Havoc In Eu rope Killed One Million People In Europe Fears of Spread to Eastern Cities. . The bubonic plague, which was dis covered in San Francisco's Chinatown two months ago, has spread so that at the last formal report there were 73 cases, 37 deaths, 17 recoveries. At Seattle there were halt a dozen fatal cases. The San Francisco officials found themselves unable to cope with the situation, and asked the aid 'of the United States government. They now find it difficult to pay the $30,000 a month necessary to do the city's share of the work, and they want the govern ment to finance that, too. Though only meager reports have ben sent out from San Francisco, it is known that he California authori ties have been greatly agitated. It is feared that the epidemic will spread to cities farther east. For this reason it is contended that the United States government is directly interested and ought to lend its aid. The Bubonic Plague. The Oriental, Levantine or bubonic plague exists in two principal forms, the mild plague and the severe epi demic plague. It is the latter that is so virulently fatal. It flourishes most readily in warm, moist climates outside of the tropics, spreading through conditions of poverty, dirt, or bad sanitation. The bacteria are now believed to be carried by the common rat, thus accounting for its immense spread. LOTS OF CASH. New York Banks Now Able to Help Crop Moving. Practically all the New York banks now are sending cash into the south and west to facilitate the movement of crops. One large Institution, with several thousand correspondents, has sent one-quarter of its resources to help move the cotton crop. Talking with a treasury official In Washington a number of hankers as sured him that the financial situation Is very noticeably Improved. Tht money stringency is gradually relax ing. The demand on the part of the banks for additional circulation con tinues unabated and the amounts al ready shipped from Washington hav ing a marked influence In relieving the present stringency. The facuthat practically $GO.0u0.O; In currency disappeared from the New York banks within a week is consid ered sufficient evidence that the? New York banks are doing their best to meet the great demands upon them. While the treasury department has not decided as yet to undertake any criminal prosecutions in connection with the original causes of the money trouble, it is declared that the two men they are said to be investigating especially were officers, one in each, of the Mercantile and National Bank of America. Kaiser Wants to See Taft. Emperor William will see Secretary Taft in Osborne house, Isle of Wight, during the former's visit to England. A message conveying this wish was sent through the German embassy at Washington. Taft also will seek an audience of King Edward, as to visit the German emperor on British soil without visiting the king might be re garded as discourteous. So much has been said about Mr. Taft planning to see the emperor that some of the other governments have seemingly become curious as to what Is up, If anything. Ambassadors Bryce.and Jusserand, it is said, al ready have made Inquiries In Wash ington, and it is asserted that there is a feeling at the foreign offices of Lon don and Paris that Mr. Taft would be slighting King Edward and Presi dent Fallieres if he does not ask to see them on his way home, or if he stopped only In St. Petersburg and Berlin. While there, Secretary Taft will bo given a dinner by Ambassador Tower, at which he will meet Chancellor von Buelow, Gen. von Moltke and Foreign Secretary von Schoen. On the Isle of Wight the kaiser will give a dinner or luncheon In his honor. Picture of Washington. Through the instrumentality of Hon. R. W. Austin, United States consul at Glasgow, a portrait, supposed to be that of George Washington, and possi bly the first extant, will shortly be brought to this country and hung upon the walls at Mount Vernon The an nouncement of the loan was made Fri day at the meeting of the local so ciety at the home of Mrs. Orla B. Taylor, by the state regent, Mrs. E. B. A. Rathbone, of this city. The picture In question hangs in the People's palace in Glasgow, under the title "Unknown." The story goes that It was the property of Hon. Robert Dinwiddle, at one time a colonial gov ernor of Virginia, and that when he returned to Scotland he took it with him. Mr. and Mrs. William Parmelee, of Milliards, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Wednesday. Sixty-two relatives and friends were guests. In the damage suit of Peter Forster against Dr. I. E.

Heart Failure Claims Detroit's Mil lionaire Seed Merchant. Dexter Mason Ferry, head of the great seed firm which bears his name and widely known throughout the Btate In business and political life, was found dead In bed in his resi dence, 1040 Woodward avenue, early Monday morning. Although Mr. Ferry had not been, in robust health during the last year, he had suffered from no illness and was apparently in his usual health when he retired Sunday evening. Saturday he had visited his office as usual and had made no com plaint of feeling ill. Monday morning he did not arise at the usual time and, when members of the family went to his room, it was found that he had passed away. Once a Farmhand. Mr. Ferry's life Is the story of steady development from the humble position of farm hand,' and later of errand boy in the city, to the high place of a millionaire business man whose achievements were the result of persistent and skillful devotion to business, and of methods entirely free from the spectacular ways of la ter-day high finance. Incidents in his life, showing how he labored hard to seize every educational advantage, no matter how meager, and other later facts reveal the type of successful business man that is sometimes desig nated as old-fashioned. Dexter M. Ferry was born in Low vllle, Lewis county, N. Y., on August 8, 1833. He was the son of a wagon maker. A Gruesome Exhibit. During the recent session of the pardon board Nancy Flood, of Grand Rapids, who is serving a life sentence in the Detroit house of correction for the murder of a farm hand tried again to secure a pardon. At Infinite pains and with not a little skill Mrs. Flood has prepared a miniature, of her home where the shooting occurred, showing every detail of the tragedy, even to the body of the victim with the top of his head blown off and the gun lying on the floor. Even the blood stains on the wall were reproduced. A member of the board said it was the most gruesome exhibit that ever came under his notice. It is Relieved to be unlikely that the board will recommend the pardon of the woman for the present. New Postoffice. Postmaster Prettyman received word from the treasury department In Washington Wednesday that an ap propriation of $S0,000 had been made for Ann Arbor's new postoffice. He was directed to advertise for bids with the stipulation that the successful bid der must complete the building Ly .May 1, 1909.

Do Away With Sherman"Law. Certain leaders of the administra tion seriously contemplate advising President Roosevelt to recommend to congress that the Sherman anti trust law be wiped from the statute books and that there be submitted for it some measure aimed only at combin ations unwholesome In their influence upon Interstate trade. Some months ago, the president gave notice that he Intended to ask congress to repeal the Sherman anti trust law in so far as it applied to railroads. The impression is grow ing among government officials who have given the subject deep study that the anti-trust law is out of Joint with the times, that it Is antagonis tic to the progressive spirit of the age, and until It Is repealed, serious disturbances in commerce and trade are bound to follow wherever and whenever efforts are made to enforce it. In other words, many officials have reached the conclusion that the policy of prohibition and repression is a mistaken one. They contend that In stead of fighting Industrial combina tion the government should control it under the terms of well made laws. Money Loosens Up.
