One of the most severe wind
storms which has visited this vicini

day Friday. Forest fires occurred
in various localities, and during the
day reached one point close to

turned out and plied streams of
water on the streets and numerous
buildings. Fire started in the
timber adjacent to the water works
dam, and was discovered just in
time to avoid serious damage.
Last Sunday afternoon the fire
department was called out, a small
blaze having started on the roof of
the house occupied by Patrick
Brogan, on Railroad street. When
, the department arrived the flames
were rapidly burning their way
along the dry shingles, and but for
the timely arrival of the fire-fighters
the loss would have been quite
severe, as a bigb wind was prevail

spread to adjoining buildings. Two
streams of water were thrown upon
the fire which soon stopped its
progress. It is supposed that the
fire originated from a spark from

WILL TAKE SCHOOL CENSUS.
Enumerator WiU Begin Work' Within
a Few Days.
- The work of taking the school
census will be commenced within
the next few days by Charles II
Menge, who was appointed by the
board of education for that purpose.
The primary school monejrreceiv
ed from the state' each vear lessens
the taxes of -the township and
county and it is therefore of interest
to parents to give the census taker
the names of all children between
the ages of 6 and 20 years. .
While it is not believed that any.
names were missed in the last two
years because of the efficient manner
which the work was done, great
care having been taken by the
enumerator, it is well for parents
to be prepared to meet the enumer
ator ana all snouid give mm names
of every child in the family of
school age. One of the most com
mon errors among parents is the
belief that only the names of such
children as are attending school are
to( be given. This is not the case.
The names of all children of school
age should be given to the bensus
taker, and in that way the township
will benefit and receive more prim
ary school money than will be the

with G. Henrick and E. Seavoy as
batteries for L'Anse, and Messrs
Nelson and Soli, in a like capacity
In the opening inning the local
team went down in a heap, while
with the aid of three bases on balls,
three bits and three errors, Pequam
ing scored to the tune of six beauti
At the beginning of the second,
Hendrick began to warm up to the
situation and only allowed his
opponents four hits, two in the
second and two in the seventh, out
of which Cequaming was only bene
fited by two scores.
There was "nothing doing" for
the L'Anse team until in the fifth
inning, when Seavoy got a single,
and Seifert sent a beauty off to
center, good for a three bagger.
This bad a tendency to start the
ball a rolling for the L'Anse team,
and scored Seavoy, after which in
the seventh and ninth innings by
timely batting on the part of several,
the locals were enabled to 6core five
more runs which concluded the
game, resulting in a score of 6
to 8 in favor of Pequaming.
