Was That cjf the Many Ballots
The qualified elector; of the State
of Michigan waded through a fak of
ballots last, Mondny and tried to Indi
cate whom they wanted for ofllce and
what they desired done with the vari
ous constitution arqendments. ' In
cidentally a lot of election rules and
regulations were smashed to smith
ereens. However, out of the storm of ballots
)t was learned, locally, that Aldeu E.
CrrHS was the people's choice for
mayor, receiving about 353 votes to
Louis A. Hoyt'a 123. Mr. Cross was
elected for the fulj term, three years.
! Fred E. Boosiuger was elected Jus
tice of the Peare.
Only a republican ticket wax placed
for the ward offices,. W. F. Bashaw
and F. L. Smttb being re-elected
supervisors of the first and second
wards, and V. C. Spring elected tp
represent tie third ward.

fnajorities were manifest everywhere,

On the amendments, it i o;t i -mated
that Equal Suffrage lost out by
30.000, although no tiaures are detinUe
yet . . Sentiment, since the vote on
this question last November, seemed
to have a wonderful change both in
the Cities and the rural districts.
One of the big surprises in store for
Northern 'Michigan was pmnnt Coun
ty swinging hack into t he' wet col
umn after several years of dry regime
Just what the effect of this move will
jiaveinn the other dry counties in this
part of the state ifj a matter of con
jecture. Ij. Yr Rifcnburg Dead.
Hiram V. ltlfetjburg- died at his
Jiomeuear I ronton on Mouday morn
ing of this week . lie had spent the
winter in Florida. and reached
C'harloyolx on the late train Frirlav,
driylng home the sare night in the
cold snow gtorm, in doing which
he contracted the severe cold which
was the cause of his deth.
Formerly, deceased was for several
years Identified with Charlevoix busi
ness affairs. ' He came here iu 18S5
from Muskegon, where for many years
lie had been in th lumber business.
'That sajne yer jie built the flouring
mill nqw known as the Argo mill
which he opcratrd unt il 1901, when
he sold it to H. M. Enos. He there
upon bought a farm on the peninsula
just opposite Ironton and lias resided
tnere with his family since.
Mr. Rlfenburg was some oyer eighty
years ot hge. '. We doubt if anyone
putside his own family had a more In
tlinale knowledge of the good quali
ties of H. V. Rifenburg's character
than the writer of this. During the
loug period of his - residence here and
at Jronton we have classed the old
yeteran as a close friend, and we nev
er found lilm false in the minutest de
tail. One of his most' admirable
traits was a true and sieadfast loyalty
to a friend.
He served more than three years In
f,he war of the rebellion, and was a
member of Baxter Post G. A'. R.. 'of
this place when It disbanded recently.
He was a member of Charlevoix Lodge

LEARN TO SEW.
School Girls in Rural Districts
Are Being Taught to Use
Practical education for girls is not
being confined entirely to tiose pro
gressive cities and towns which have
introduced domestic arts but is grad
ually making Its way into the rural
districts. Enterprising country teach
ers are tinding that sensible sewing
assignments, are possible and furnish
the best kind of "buy work'' for the
girls. At least one county has been
organised Into sewing clubs for the
girfs.-the experiment of corn clubs for
the boys having proyed so successful.
It lias been discovered that the girls
have entered lutq theii work as en
thusiastically as the boys and thp
scheme has been tried out o thor

Useful things -such us aprons, and
simple articles of wearing apparel.
The art of making btouholes, mend

part of the course. Those who have
had home training along these lines
and prove their ability to do such
wotir are encouraged to attempt more
advanced things so the lessons kre

the cramping of lingers is Injurious,

should be encouraged to use only long
