The accident happened near the Carroll Spicer home on the state road. Police Officer Cook was called to the scene and went out. He found Smith acting as if he had been drink in c tn iv(p3 iind took him into Cus tody and placed him in the city jail. Monday morning, Smith was ar raigned before Justice Reed and was charged with driving an auto while intoxicated.

Later on in the day, Malone nppeare.1 and went on the bond and Smith was released to appear on Fri day of this week for further examin ation.

Sheritf Hoppough received a call from Jackson that the lady was in Ionia, and was told to pick her up. Shortly afterward, the woman call ed up from a store in Ionia and wanted to know if the sheriff could give her any information as to the whereabouts" of her divorced husband and he went down to get her. There vro a number vf men in the r.v.i'i room of the jail, where as a generu: rule all persons are seaiched ui'Ur arrest and the sheriff and Mrs. Hnw oc?h decided to take Mrt.

T. Ka waba and his wife, who are in the United States on a tour as Mission aries from Japan. On the platform with the mission aries were Rev. H. I). Gaflin, pastor of the church, Revs. Giffin and White of Spring Arbor, Revs. Curch, Os borne and Rooke ;f this city. Mrs. Kawaba, who assists her hus band in the services, sang the old song "Glory to. His Name'' in the language of her native country and the entire congregation joined in the chorus. She spoke a short time k broken English and then gave an ad dress in the Japan tongue which was interpreted into hnglish by Mr. Ka waba. Mr. Kawaba is a forceful speaker and an enthusiast in his work, that of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to his people. He has been a preacher ever since his conversion and has done much toward building up the missions of Free Methodism in his country under adverse circum stances so much so that he is called Saint Paul, the Apostle of Japan. Mrs. Ktiwaba is an earnest worker in the Womens Christian Temperance Union and spoke of the good work being done. Rev. J. h. V hite, who is president of the Free, Methodist Seminary in Spring Arbor, Mich., told of the ex cellence of that institution and urg ed the people to send their boys and girls there for a higher education. An offering was taken for the work and a goodly sum in pledges and cash was received. PLAY PROMISES "10 BE BUT TIRESOME SAYINGS OF SOCIETY HAS IT THAT O. E. S.

C. Moore, extension spe cialist at the Michigan Agricultural College, Lansing. There will be approximately 90, 000 bushels of Michigan certified seed potatoes for sale this year. The va rieties certified are Late Petoskey, (Russet Rural), Green Mountain, Sir Walter Raliegh, and Irish Cobbler, with nearly 10 per cent of all the stock being of the Late Petoskey variety. This variety originated in Michigan and has proved so popular in the lower peninsula it is practi cally the only late variety grown. Late Petoskey has proved equally satisfactory in several of the eastern ! and central states. Inspection and certification, which is carried on by the Michigan Agri cultural college in cooperation with the Potato Producers Association, re sults in a guaranteed stock of de pendable seed potatoes and is rais ing the production standard of the state materially.

Caine Bailey Big Crowd In Town Reports from the many merchants with whom we talked say that Sat nrdav was one of the best davs for business which the year usually brings around. The crowd was one of the largest ever assembled at the giving away of the famous .Tac quet flyer, which was given to Leo Bowler, a farmer living west of Smyrna. The free lunch which was provided for the farmers and others coming from a distance was visited by nearly 1700 people and a vast amount of eatables were used in feed ing the people. The people were quite free in taking advantage of the bargains offered by the merchants and everyone was very well satisfied with the results of the day. na, on Sunday, September 18, the in cident started a round of trouble for Blasser, the outcome of which is but guess-work. Blasser undoubtedly hopes that the trouble is nearly over while it looks as if his creditors are just about starting in with their ac tivities. The case between Byrne and Blas ser and Coller came to trial before Justice Reed last Friday and the court found in favor of the plaintiff, allowing him $33 damages and charg ing Blasser $19.00 court costs.
