Harding Is Nominated Will Lead Republican Party To Victor This Fall. The tenth ballot was cast Saturday in the Republican National Convention, before that body could decide on the G. O. P. nominee for president; at its close however United States Senator Warren G. Harding of Ohio was nominated. Senator Harding' is described as Ohio'.s great dynamic, lovable senator, possessing a rugged character, sturdy record and fascinating personality. For Vice-President, Calvin Coolidge, Massachusetts steading, stalwart gov ernor, who is known all over the na tion for his uncompromising and cour ageous Americanism, was chosen. While the Michigan delegation was not at all in sympathy with their in structions to vote for Hiram Johnson, they nevertheless stood solidly by him for fivo ballots, but in the sixth they split, 18 remaining with Johnson, 11 go ing to Wook and one to Lowden. On the ninth ballot one vote was given Harding, but in the tenth he received 25, and the Michigan vote was one of the big factors in nominating Senator Harding.

Board of Trade Has Enthus iastic Meet Many Important Matters Con sidered Last Wednesday Evening. The Board of Trade Luncheon at The Inn last Wednesday evening was a most enthusiastic and spirited gathering. Not only was an excellent feeling of good fellowsnip displayed but many im portant topics for East Jordan were discussed. The construction of a temporary bridge for use while the new bridge is being built was up first for considera tion and the unanimous opinion was that a suitable bridge be built. Mr. H. Rosenthal next presented a plan for a ''Bargain Day" for East Jor dan shortly after the 4th, this being a report of a committee previously ap pointed. After many excellent sugges tions and plans were considered it was unanimously voted to go ahead and prepare for this occasion. Carl Stroe bel and Ben Reid are the other mem bers of this committee. Next came the plan for repairing the Alba road. After this was explained a $10.00 Tund was started and $320 were raised. The rest of a $500 donation is being raised dur ing the remainder of this week. All the members of the City Commis sion were present and they offered plans for improving the cemetery and for securing the Loveday lot opposite the library for a park. Their final re ports on these two projects will be made at the next meeting.

Mildred Helder, age sixteen, and John Helder, age nine, children of Mr. Mrs. George Helder, of Central Lake, were drowned in Intermediate Lake, at a point about a mile and a half south of Central Lake, Tuesday forenoon, June 15. The youth had gone into the lake bathing and waded out to the edge of the channel where the water was many feet deep. Seeing her brother strug gling in the deep water the sister went to his rescue and died in the attempt. The bodies were recovered about three hours later. The family and village are grief stricken because of the accident. OBITUARY JACOB SETTEM Jacob Settem passed away at Hanley Falls, Minn., June '4th, following an illness of about two weeks from influenza-pneumonia. The remains were brought to East Jordan and funeral services were held from the Luthern Church, June 8th, conducted by Rev. Johnson of Frankfort. Deceased was born in Norway, Sept. 22, 1878. He came to this country in the early spring of 1899, locating in East Jordan and that fall was united in marriage to Miss Marie Nelson of this city. They made their home in this city except for about three years in Elk Rapids and nine months in Minnea polis, Minn. Last March they went to Hanley Fall, Minn., expecting to make their home there for awhile, and where he became ill and passed away. He leaves his wife and two brothers, Nels Anderson of this city and Chris Anderson of Cedar also two sisters, Mrs. John Larson of Minneapolis, and Mrs. Hans Anderson of Hanley Falls. Your lot is pretty hard, but think of Lot's wife's lot. Why worry about something you can't help? Even a dog knows he must lead a dog's life. Road Building Is Progressing. ROAD TO ALBA AND MANCELONA TO BE IMPROVED During the past two weeks the Board of Trade has been busy on getting the road running from East Jordan to Alba and Mancelona im proved so that it will be an attractive road for tourists. On the whole the rdad is in good condition but there arevtwo places in particular that need fixing. One is the Miles 'and Echo township directly south of town which is now being repaired. The other piece is the road running for two miles beyond Chestonia. Here the sand is very deep and it is diffi cult for cars to go through,' but the township has set aside a sum of money to be used for graveling this toad and East Jordan has also agreed to raise from two to five hundred dollars for this purpose. .The more money raised the better the road will be. It is planned to place signs at Mancelona and Alba directing tourists through East Jordan on their way to Charlevoix and Petoskey. If sufficient travel can be directed over this road it is quite possi ble that a trunk line will be established. This is really the best route for tourists because from Mancelona or Alba to East Jordan and Charle voix to Petoskey is one of the most attractive drives possible to take and tourists going north on the Mackinaw trail will surely make this drive either going or coming and very probably both. Money is being raised in East Jordan at ' this time for the wOrk which we understand has already been started. ELLSWORTH ROAD PROGRESSING NICELY. Last week on Wednesday several members of the Board of Trade made a tour of inspection of the Ellsworth road and returned with en thusiastic reports of the splendid grade which is being built. Over two miles of it is now ready for gravel which will be placed there within a very short time. It is expected that the entire road will be completed by September 1st. Every indication points to this being one of the very best constructed pieces of road anywhere in this section. ROAD SOUTH OF FAIRGROUNDS TO BE IMPROVED. Within a short time County Road Commissioner, Courier, expects to begin building a mile of state road running south from tne fair grounds. At present this road is in very bad condition and is used so much that it is difficult to keep the road in repair. But in the construc tion of a first class road the difficulties which people have encountered in getting over this road will be done away with. Wanted A Slogan for East. Jordan East Jordan needs a slogan for advertising her self. Other cities find such a name of great value. "Charlevoix the Beautiful" is known throughout the United States. Cadillac, the City of Quality" has been of no small aid in giving Cadillac the reputation which deserves of being a city of real quality. 'There is only one Petoskey" has aided our sister city in en hancingiier good name. Several have made suggestions as to what East Jordan's slogan should be. They are: ''East Jordan the City of Industry," "East Jordan for Business," "Busy East Jordan," "East Jordan for Beauty and Industry," ''East Jordan Farms, Factories, and Fishing," East Jordan for Beauty and Business." Other suggestions are wanted. Send them into this paper or give them to M. B. Keyworth, Sec'y of the Board of Trade. an Masons Attentionl All members are urged to meet at the lodge rooms at 10:00 o'clock Sunday morning June 20th for the purpose of attending services at the Presbyterian Church.

A traveler on a walking tour In on of the northern counties came acrons a solitary old man who, seated In tne doorway of his cottage, was fiddling away quite regardless of such trifling conventionalities as time and tune. The traveler listened a while In amuse ment and then Inquired cnsuolly: "When do you tune your violin Y' The reply came with refreshing Ingenuous ness: MI don't tune It It don't silund right If I do."

Big Midway At Our Fair Northwestern Shows Have Con tracted For Large Space The Charlevoix County Agricultural Society announces that it has secured the Northwestern Shows of Detroit for its midway. This outfit has contracted to furnish a merry go round, a big Eli Ferris Wheel and a new Whip. The whip will occupy about the same space that the Red Cross dancing floor did in 1918 and will be located where the dancing floor was. From that point up to the grand stand the concession space has already been reserved. Opposite the Whip will be a tent show which uses one hundred feet of frontage. The Merry Go Round, which is the best one that has ever been on our grounds, wilj be at the usual place, located between the educational building and the floral hall. Several shows will be in this space also. The Ferris Wheel will be set up just at the south end of the edu cational building. The Fair management takes great pleasure in making this announcement as a cash deposit from this concern as sures their presence. It is the first time in our history that we have been able to get such a large outfit to help us make the Fair a big one. In addition to the Northwestern Shows and the twenty concessions which they will bring there will be at least thirty more concession stands, which will make the biggest and best midway that has ever been on our Fair grounds. The Charlevoix County Agricultural Society is each year putting on a bigger and better Fair and our County Fair is now recognized as being the best Fair in Northern Michigan, notwithstanding the attempts of some of our neighbor ing Fair Associations to become bigger by calling themselves District Fairs. The Charlevoix County Fair is in truth a District Fair and if the Fair Associa tions in any. of our adjoining counties should decide that they would rather join with us than to hold a Fair in their county we would be very glad to wel come them. For the present we are content to call ourselves a County Fair and to welcome the exhibitors from the adjoining counties. SHORT SEASON BRINGS CALL FOR LATE CROPS Alfalfa and Sweet Clover Can be Planted Until Aug. 1. That Michigan land which has not been planted because of the brief plant ing season and general labor difficulties can in many instances be seeded to al falfa or sweet clover with reasonable safety as late as August 1 in lower Michigan and the middle of July in other sections,' is the information given out by Prof. J. F. Cox, head of the Farm Crops Department at M. A. C "Because of conditions this year," says Proffessor Cox, "instances have occured where land which has been fit ted for a crop has not been planted. Such land could readily be put into con dition to receive alfalfa or sweet clover during June or early July. , "The seed bed should be harrowed at intervals if possible, and firmly com pacted with roller before either of these crops is seeded. Scarified sweet clover seed should be used. The ma jority of Michigan land will need a dressing of one or two tons per acre of finely ground limestone, or several cu bic yards of marl to pave the way for these crops. Northern grown alfalfa seed and'the white blossom variety of sweet clover are recommended. "Culture for inoculation can be se cured from the Department of Bacteri ology at the Michigan Agricutural Col lege, at a cost of twenty-five cents a bottle. Further information regarding these crops may be secured from the Farm Crops Department, M. A. C. East Lansing, Michigan. I've said this before but I wish to repeat: Happiness consists mostly in forgetting things. No life is a complete failure into which has come, ever, the love of a single earthly being. Any girl knows she's modest so long as she keeps her ears covered. Your game doesn't pay as well as the other fellow's, but you have the satis faction of knowing that he knows his game doesn't pay as well as somebody else's. If you are a slave to custom you will always be accustomed to slave. Eveline Twp. School Day Exercises Held at Ironton Mon day, June 7th.
