Itcv. O. W. Maxwell had charge of the meeting and gave cheering words o welcome to the service. The song ser vice was in charge of J. T. Patterson and he makes a splendid leader. A male quartette, J. T. Patterson, Fred Cornell, Fred Jloyer and Orlo Morse sang a fine selection. Itev. Kdrie Collins read the scripture and delivered an interesting sermon. The audience Joined heartily in the familiar songg and a collection of 3.89 was taken. There is plenty of room for all to enjoy the service and the auto mobile with its passengers can take part as well as the occupants of the carnage. Caught a Real Live Balloonist One of the north side ladies had an experience last Haturday afternoon that does not fall to the lot of every woman in the country; she caught a real live balloonist The particulars as we have been able to glean them are substan tially as follows: The north side lady was busily en gaged in an effort to corral her chickens shortly after the balloon went up here on Saturday and noticed that they apiared to be greatly perturbed over something and upon casUng her eye upward to see what was scaring them so, discovered that the balloonist was dropping down in her door yard with his parachute and coming quite rapidly too. Imagine her surprise to discover when the fellow lit that the parachute had landed on one side of an electric light wire and the balloonist on the other, he being' caught on the wire in such a way that he could not release himself. He called to the lady to help him and she, seeing the predicament in which he was left, ran to his assistance, She was told to take hold of his feet and lift him up a little, which she did and releasing himself he slid through her arms to the ground, and now comes the really touching part of the story The lady who so bravely assisted the poor fellow to terra firma had just donned a spotless suit of white for the purpose of coming down town and after the balloonist had slid through her arms she found it necessary to change her attire, as the dress she wore was black the whole length of it. At Long Lake This will be the banner year for new cottages on the, shores of Long Lake and the territory surrounding this fine body of water is now fairly entitled to be called a summer resort. Jlricker Park, on the northeast shore, built up largely by Uelding people, is the me- troiiolis of the section, and with its skating rink, launches, boats, etc, fur nishes many sources of amusement. Two new cottages are just completed on the 11 ranch plat and two lots were sold this week on which it is the inten Uon of the purchasers to build at once. This is the resorter's quiet spot, with ideal surroundings for a summer home. Despite the fact of the sale of the M. E. camp grounds, cottagers on that plat, with its splendid shore front, cling to it as the finely favored spot, and most of the cottages are occupied, either by the owners or renters. The lake holds up wonderfully well as a fishing ground, the fishing being as good today, appar ently, as it was twenty-five years ago. Mr. Hall has been very faithful the re cent years in stocking the lake with the best breeds of fish fry, and his ef forts have been rewarded. His landing af lords all the accommodations esscn tial for a day or longer period of pleas ure. Ionia Sentinel. Nearly Lost Home 4 Chas. Johnson came near losing his home by fire Sunday afternoon. Smoke was discovered issuing from the cham ber windows and on investigation by Mr. Johnson, who ran up stairs with a pail of water, found the flames had made good headway under his work bench and crawled up to the ceiling. few well directed palls of water soon put it out but quite a little damage was done to his tools and the interior of the room. It was fortunate that the dis covery was made at the time as ten minutes later the house could not pos BIG CIRCUS Rlngling Dros. World's Greatest Show to be in Ionia Hingllng Brothers' World's Greatest Shows will be in Ionia, Tuesday July 26 and give two performances. This will be the only opportunity this year of seeing the best of all circus entertain ments. This is the show that amazed New York City with its European com pany of actors, and its extensive new menagerie. Its parade is the longest and most superb spectacle that ever passed through the streets of any city on earth. On April 3, 1883, the" five brothers gave their first performance in their home town, Baraboo, Wis., on the public square. They made their own tent and their own ring properties. The audience sat on planks borrowed from a lumber yard. They had but one horse. From that little one-ring ad air to their present stupendous or ganization the history of the Hlngling Brothers reads like a fairy tale. They began with nothing. They now own i the greatest amusement enterprise in all history. Among the many European features oITered this year are the Schuman horses from the Circus Schuman at Berlin, Scheveningen and Frankfort. Albert Schuman, as a trainer of horses, is the most wonderful man in history. He has made ten millions of dollars exhibit ing the animals he has trained. Tour ists travel many miles outs of their way to visit his institutions in Germany. There are fifteen animals in his act. They enter the arena concealed in large beer barrels piled on an immense brew ery wagon, they are not discovered by the audience until they kick the heads out of the barrels and jump into the ring. They begin their act by pulling the bungs from kegs, drawing a beer like fluid from the tap and drinking it from big glasses, they roll each other around in barrels, they waltz in time to music, they skin the rope and smoke pipes. From the beginning to the end of their act they remain standing on their hind feet. The new parade is a marvel of beauty. The new menagerie is a complete collection of animals. THOSE FIGHT PICTURES Governor Can't Stop Them Come Under Local Regulation -Inline with the general agitation throughout the country against allow ing the fight pictures of the JeH'ries Johnson battle to be pi ami on exhibi uon, uov. warner received a message from William Shaw, general secretary of the Christian Endeavor society, call ing attention to the race riots that have already resulted and asking the gov ernor to Join other governors in prohib iting the exhibition of the moving pictures of the fight in this state. The attorney general not long ago ruled that the matter of regulating prize fight pictures was for local regu lation and that there was no law under which the governor can cenaor moving picture shows in the state. Governor Warner's stand on holding prize fights in the state is so well known that the people of Michigan know that if there was a law giving the governor authority to regulate this matter it would be given his prompt attention, but as the matter now stands it looks as if the fight pictures would have to be handled by local regulation. MACCABEE TROUBLES Fraternal Organization at Issue With New Ruling By the provisions of a recent ruling of the state insurance commissioner, many L. o. T. M. M. charters over the state are threatened with suspension and it is said the probable loss of mem bership in the order of the Knights of the Modern Maccabees by a compulsory increase in insurance premiums may make imperative the surrender of char ters also from many tents over the state after another two years. The local I O. T. M. M. charter, It is claimed, may be surrendered soon as a result of the ruling of the insurance commissioner and if this Is done many people who have paid premiums many years in the hope of protecting loved ones will bo heavy losers. The whole situation seems to be seri ous and many fraternal companies may be placed in similar straits. The whole matter is occasioned by a raise In rates being found necessary and the refusal of old policy holders to accept a re adjustment Sand Lake L. O. T. M. M. and other nearby lodges have al ready surrendered charters it is said. Howard City Record.

Notes At a mothers' meeting one of the del egates read a paper on "Why a Mother Should Instruct Her Children." She said: "Girls left too long in ignorance of what is coming to them physically many times render themselves invalids for life. Boys, misinstructed, fall vic tims of quacks and sometimes are driv en to deeds of desperation. Evert little children are initiated Into solitary vice and led to look upon this part of their nature as a source of selfish pleasure instead of being taught that it is given to them in trust for future generations. It is a mother's God-given privilege to tell this most beautiful story to her own children and she should let no one else rob her of this privilege." Rricker Park Locals O. F.

June 23-An up per peninsula man, who is actively Interested In Chase Osborn'B cam paign for tho governorship, in an In terview hero today threw a reritable bomb Into the Kelley camp by di rectly charging the lieutenant-governor with having made a pledge, months ago, to the mining interests of the upper peninsula that he would. If elected governor, veto the tonnage tax Mil if it passed the legislature. lie aaldv "My attention hae been called to an editorial In tho Lansing Stat Ite- Subllcan. which has lately become the elLey mouthpiece, In which the dec laration Is made that the guberna toiial contest Ilea between Osborn and Kelley. Tills is followed by the bald Biatemwit that Osborn Is 'pledged to the mining interests, while Kelly is pledged only to the good of tho etate.' Up to a few days ago I was to eatned to agree that the contest lay between Meaws. Osborn and Kelley, but since Kulley's Mt. Pleasant speech, In which he attempts to re pudiate his Intimate association and connection with the present adminis tration, I am beginning to bellevo Kelley will be a negligible Quantity In the situation before primary day. People Instinctively admire loyalty even when tho object of that senti ment is not entirely to their liking. But when, as in the present case, a man who is an Integral and important part of an organization, who has been largely responsible for the success at the poll of that organization, at- ! tempts to repudiate It solely because ! he finds public sentiment almost unl- rersally unfriendly to that organlza . tLon, I have too high an opinion of public Intelligence to believe he can get away with it. "The second declaration in the Re publican Is a most unfortunate one fco far as Kelley Is concerned, since it permits of a rejoinder which will puzzle Mr. Kelley to meet satisfac torily. "Mr. Osborn le pledged to no spe cial interests, cither In the upper or lower peninsula. He Is pledged to see equal and eiact Justice done all in terests. His political record and the character of his declarations upon the stump; la fact hi entire life and the quality of his mind give absolute as surance upon this point. But how aboot Mr. Kelley? "Ls Mr. Kelley prepared to fleny without qualification that tn hie ef forts prior to Mr. Osborn's entrance into the race, to secure the support of th upper peninsula that he gave certain representatives of the mining Interests his personal pledge that hs wouid protect the mlnlnc companies against the tonnage tax propoeltloa should It become an issue before the next legi&lature? Is Mr. Kelley ready to deny that he gave these represent atives the assurance that If a ton nage tax bill passed the legislature, and be were governor, he would kill it by kle retot "I don't beliere Mr. Kelley win answer theee queetloh. lie hae had one "good opportunity to do so. but declined. The Detroit Free Press, several week ago, asked a similar queetloa. Kelley ignored it then, and I presume he will Ignore it now. " While oquitahle assessment for taxation la still a problem as it al ways has and will be for years to come, it ie no more a problem now than it has boea during the six years of the ItaraeivKfciley regime Throuehovt the six years of Warner as soverndr, and KeUy as lieutenant governor, no word on thie subject escaped either Kelley or his chief. Now that Kelley Ls a candidate tud needs an Issue he has become very keen for equitable assessments, par ticularly in a section of the state where he does not expect much sup port. "The real leeue In Michigan today and the issue in which every citizen is interested is that the money col lected for etttte taxes shall be hon estly, wisely and conservatively ex pended.
